--The votaries of John Barleycorn continue to have their names registered daily upon the Mayor's docket, and we suppose the custom will not cease so long as whiskey is one of our domestic productions. David Truck bowed his stalwart form before the truculent adversary on Tuesday, and spread himself in a doorway, but the Mayor excused him for this occasion only.--Peter Riley took the sidewalk for his place of repose, and in the progress of events found himself before the municipal tribunal, where security in the sum of $100 was required for his future good behavior.--John A. Cameron, a Texan warrior, made a ruthless invasion of the Monument Hotel premises, but was captured by a superior force, and subsequently committed to the Valley fortress, in default of surety to keep the peace.
