Mayor's Court.

--His Honor had quite an array of colored subjects before him yesterday, to answer for trivial offences with which they were charged:

‘ Charles and Thomas, slaves to R. P. Archer, for stealing empty bags from the C. S. Government, were ordered to be punished.

John Travis was heard for threatening violence to Mrs. Ann Shea, and then discharged.

Philip Lambert, charged with being a deserter, was turned over to an officer of his company.

The Mayor enjoins his night police to strict, untiring vigilance when on duty, to protect the people from burglars and garroters. If they are not more successful, he threatens to apply to the Council to have the force dismissed, and let the people become their own protectors.
