Miscellaneous cases.

--Thomas Holmes and Margaret O'Brien, charged with assaulting Wm. O'Brien, made their appearance before the Mayor yesterday, but the testimony completely turned the tables upon the latter, who, while indulging in the domestic pastime of whipping his wife, was interfered with by Holmes. Mrs. O'B. made a touching narration of the cruelties of her spouse, which was entirely corroborated by the evidence of a little son. O'Brien was committed to jail in default of security to keep the peace.--Jno. W. Woody was fined $5 for cussing a country man in the Second Market, having been provoked by a threatening demonstration against himself and horse.--John Emenhauser, for keeping his bar-room open on Sunday night, the 20th inst., was fined $5.--Edward, slave of Col. A. H. Cole, was ordered down for 20 lashes, for carrying his master's pistol without leave or license, and in violation of law.
