Disorderly House.

--The Mayor yesterday committed Mary Gleason to prison in default of $200 to answer an indictment by the Grand Jury for keeping a disorderly house, where divers persons assemble and get drunk and make a great noise by fighting and swearing, all of which the warrant states is to the disturbance of the neighborhood, so plain a proposition that no one can have the slightest doubt of it. Mrs. Gleason's visage was rubicond with the generous juice of various expressed and fermented cereals. It was evident from her looks that if she loved to administer creature comfort, she loved also to take it herself.
