Mayor's Court.

--The cases before this Court yesterday, though numerous, do not deserve particular mention. The examination of Wm. Cook charged with stealing three cows and a calf from the freight care of the Virginia Central Railroad, was partly heard and continued. A neighborhood squabble between two women was adjusted by an admonition to the parties concerned; and some dozen "persons of African descent" were linked for various petty infractions of law. The Court adjourned after an arduous session of an hour and a half.
