Hustings Court.

--Only one case (that of Reuben Manheim, alias Reuben Morris, charged with obtaining cloth from Samuel M. Price & Co. under false pretences,) was disposed of by the Magistrates of the Hustings Court yesterday. The accused was pronounced guilty, and sentenced to two years imprisonment in the penitentiary.

The case of Ann Perrin, charged with aiding negroes to escape to the Yankees, which occupied the attention of the court on Monday, was decided in favor of the defendant, and she was acquitted.

The court will meet again this morning at 10 o'clock.
