Mayor's Court, yesterday.

--William J Rallard was charged with stealing $194 from Albert W. Luck. On Saturday night, Luck, who is a shoemaker, and employed at John C Page's stores, went to his room in the rear part of the store, and after counting his money, put it into his pocket-book and laid it on a chair beside his bed. He then proceeded to divest himself of his clothing, when Ballard knocked at the door and was admitted. Soon after entering Luck missed his pocket-book, and as R was the only person who came into the room, he was sure it was him who had taken it. For the defence, Mrs. Adams, with whom the accused boards, stated that on Saturday Ballard and Luck were together, and both formed a little drunk; that night the heard L say he had been robbed, but not the slightest hint was directed towards B. as being the their. Mrs. A had known the prisoner for some time, and never know a more orderly, gentlemanly person; he was always flushed with money, and on Saturday morning offered to advance her a considerable sum. The Mayor sent the accused on for further examination before the Husting Court.

A soldier named Lelon Carter was charged with stealing a show-case containing $303 worth of military trimmings, from Mrs. E Mughes, on Saturday last. The offence or shut Carter was proved best, consideration of the fact that he was drunk at the time, and his service were now in the field, the Magera sent him to his command.

The charge preferred against Was. B. Smith, a soldier, of stealing one beg of postponed till this morning in order to procure an important witness for the defence.
