Mayor's Court, yesterday.

--In this court, yesterday, William Daley, Eleventh Virginia battalion, who is charged with the murder of Mary Hanley, on the night of the 5th instant, by a shot fired into the yard of Mrs. Botto's dwelling, corner of Main and Twenty-first streets, had an examination, and was remanded for the Hustings Court.

William H. Baldwin, Phillip Hanley, the husband of the woman, and Patrick Kelley, who also testified before the coroner's jury, repeated their evidence in this court; but the facts elicited were substantially the same as those heretofore given. The witnesses were held in their own recognizance for their appearance.

Eliza, a small negro girl, slave of Frederick Swift, was arraigned upon the serious charge of feloniously poisoning, by the administration of laudanum, the infant-child of P. Kuper, from the effect of which the child died. The examination was continued until this morning and the negress committed.

George, slave of William Cheatham, charged with breaking into and robbing the market stall of William Collins of a quantity of corned beef, was ordered thirty-nine lashes.

John S. Williams, soldier, charged with stealing a pair of pantaloons, fifty dollars in Confederate treasury notes, and one pocket-knife, all the property of Ellis J. Richbury, was remanded for the Hustings Court.

Harriet, slave of Catherine Davis, charged with stealing a suit of clothing of the value of one thousand dollars from John Munn, was sent on.

H. G. Traylor, charged with trespassing on the premises of John T. Hicks and carrying away the window shutters from the said house without the knowledge or consent of Hicks, was required to give security in the sum of five hundred dollars to keep the peace.

Some cases concerning negroes, of no interest, concluded the docket.
