Commencing Christmas in advance.

--A white woman, named Frances Smith, who was brought into the lower station-house on Wednesday evening in a perfectly helpless condition, was arraigned before Mayor Saunders yesterday for drunkenness. She admitted that she had taken a dram, but was not intoxicated. She made a piteous appeal for a release, stating that she would never be brought before him again if excused this time. The Mayor admonished and dismissed her.

J. B. Vaughan, a small man with grey hair and a moustache dyed jet black, was charged with having been drunk in the street. It appeared that he was found by Major Claiborne leaning against a lamp post, and was subsequently arrested. In consideration of the fact that this was his first appearance, the Mayor discharged him, with a warning against a repetition of his offence.

R. W. Starke was also charged with getting drunk and laying down to take a nap in the streets. He is a man apparently of about forty years; genteelly dressed, but very muddy. The Mayor admonished and discharged him.
