Mayor's Court, Saturday.

--David Lewis and John J. Bowman were charged with stealing a horse belonging to E. G. Duval, and Jordan Miller with receiving the same knowing it to have been stolen. As no testimony was given in this case the particulars of the robbery were not made known. Witnesses for both sides are strictly enjoined to be in attendance on Wednesday.

Henrietta Lanian, charged with withholding sundry articles of wearing apparel belonging to Carolina Totty. was, after an investigation of the matter, discharged. It appears that Miss Totty left the residence of Mrs. Lanian while she was in arrears for board, and leaving her clothes behind she conceived the idea that she could not obtain them without legal process. The accused freely consented to give up the clothing, though frankly confessed she had been badly treated by the complainant.

Charles Miller, a baker on Broad street, was charged with threatening to whip Edward Vickers, and nailing up the window shutters of his residence. Vickers testified that during his absence from the city, Miller, without any authority, nailed up the window shutters opening into his yard, thereby excluding all light from his (V.'s) dining room, and compelling his wife to take her meals by gas-light. Since his return to the city, M. called at his house and abused him in a most outrageous manner, threatening to rip him open, &c. Vickers claimed to be terribly annoyed by M.--so much so that he would willingly sell his residence, which is next door, for five thousand dollars less than it was worth in order to get rid of him. The accused was required to give security for future good behavior.

L. Foltz was fined $20 for buying eggs in the Second Market to sell again. Mr. Tyler, clerk of the market, stated that the practice had been so often committed that it was difficult for small buyers to obtain anything from first hands, and great complaints were made to him about it.

A fine of $30 was imposed upon D. Von Grorling, for permitting his negro boy to buy eggs in the public market place without giving him a proper pass to do so.
