--The Mayor disposed of the following cases yesterday, in addition to a number of others not worth mentioning:

John O. Herring was charged with stealing a silver watch, the property of W. G. Blanton. When arrested by officer Crone, the watch was found upon the prisoner's person. The case was continued.

Mary and Harriet, slaves of James M. Talbott, and Richard, slave of Mary Redmond, were charged with felony; but the witnesses not appearing, the case was continued until Thursday.

The same disposition was made of the case of Rachel, slave of Rial Palmer, charged with stealing a gold watch and chain, valued at five hundred dollars, and seven hundred and twenty dollars in gold and silver coin, the property of Eliza C. Williams.

Edmund Hudson, charged with being drunk and disorderly in the house of William Curtis, and threatening to whip Mrs. Curtis, was fined ten dollars.
