Mayor's Court Thursday, January 1, 1863.--The new year commenced with a small attendance at Court, and but few criminals in the dock.

Henry Krebbs and Columbus Lee, heretofore-arrested in a house on 14th street and held as suspicious characters, without visible means of support, were brought up for an examination, which, on the part of Krebbs, concluded with his discharge. Lee was required to give $300 security for his good demeanor, but took an appeal from the judgment of the Major to the Hustings Court.

Russell F. Smith and Ro. E. Haslett were arraigned for assaulting C. D. S. Stewart, a post-office clerk, a few days since, on 11th street. In this case the parties arrested were charged with also violating the duelling not by carrying a challenge. The case was continued until Friday.

Ella, slave of Julius Bumgardner, was arraigned for stealing a lot of called and other articles from her master. The case, for want of the proper witnesses, was continued till Friday.
