's docket yesterday morning was a very long one; but the cases were of a trivial character.
The following summary embraces only those of interest:

, white, charged with being an idle, dissolute person, and having no visible means of support, was, after a hearing of the testimony against him, ordered to be carried to the Provost Marshal
The evidence against William, slave of Powhatan Roberts
, charged with entering, by force, the bar room of William A. Porter
, and stealing therefrom seven gallons of whiskey and a lot of cigars, valued at $1,000, was of such a character as to determine the Mayor

William and Net, slaves, were ordered to be whipped for stealing from the Confederate States
sixteen canvas bugs.
