Mayor's Court, yesterday.

--John Parry, charged with being drunk and interfering with and assaulting watchmen Blackburn and Boze, was sent on for examination before the Hustings Court.

The charge preferred against James H. Madison and William E. Adams, soldiers, of exhibiting for sale thirteen chickens supposed to have been stolen, and being suspicious characters generally, was postponed for examination till this morning.

The charge preferred against Mary Curry, of using abusive and threatening language to Wm. F. Peters, was dismissed on account of the non appearance of the complainant.

Tom, slave of James A. Scott, arrested without a proper pass, and having a pair of pants in his possession supposed to have been stolen, being unable to prove his claim to them, was whipped. The same punishment was administered upon Aaron, the property of John A. Belvin, arrested with a lot of tea and sugar in his possession which he could give no good account of. Two slaves, named Ben and Washington, were ordered to be whipped for being out after hours without a proper pass.
