Mayor's Court. --Robert Brannan and Daniel W. Lee, charged with breaking into Robert England's house, assaulting Mrs. Elizabeth England, and stabbing John Burns, on Sunday night last, were arraigned for examination yesterday. Hon. John S. Caskie appeared as counsel for Lee. The testimony went to show that the accused were on a spree, and went to England's house, but with what intent does not appear. Mr. Burns, a neighbor, heard the screams of Miss Anna Myers, a daughter of Mrs. England, and went to see what was the matter; as he was entering the yard, he was attacked by Brannan, and while they were struggling together on the ground, Lee was seen to make a sweep at Burns, who afterwards ascertained that he had received a slight stab in the back, under the right shoulder. Officer Perrin afterwards met Brannan and Lee, both of whom were intoxicated, and heard Lee say that he had stabbed three men; that he had stabbed Bob England to the heart, and would have done more if he had n

The case of threatened assault. --John Hagan appeared before the Mayor yesterday to answer a charge of threatening to assault E. A. Pollard, on the 9th day of January, 1862. He was accompanied by John S. Caskie, Esq., as counsel. James H. Tanner deposed that he was not acquainted with Hagan, but recognized the defendant as the man whom he heard uttering threats to take Mr. Pollard's life, for knocking him on the head with a slung-shot. It was in a bar-room near the Central Depot. He believed it was on Thursday last, in the afternoon. Was not certain of the mode to be employed, but thought it was by shooting. Mr. Pollard next testified in regard to Mr. Hagan's manner towards him when he (witness) was riding out with ladies on Saturday, and the defence introduced Bernard Hagan with a view to prove that his manner implied no threat. Mr. Pollard added that he was not influenced by personal considerations in this proceeding; it was a matter of indifference to him whether the May

Drawing a pistol. --Yesterday, just after the case against McDonald for stealing a Colt's pistol had been decided by the Mayor, a disturbance occurred at the entrance to the hall of justice. In a few moments officer Seal made his appearance, having in custody a man named John M. Wilson, a member of the Texas Invincible, attached to the 14th Alabama regiment, who had drawn a pistol to shoot Julius Nessler, one of Caskie's Rangers. Wilson had become dissatisfied with the verdict in McDonald's case, which surrendered to Mr. Walsh, gun-smith, the pistol claimed by Wm. A. Sharp as his, and was about initiating a difficulty with one of the Caskie Rangers, (to which company McDonald claims to belong,) when Nessler interposed, and he drew his pistol. His commanding officer being present, made an eloquent appeal in his behalf, which induced the Mayor to let him off. The pistol was retained, to be delivered to the party when he should be ordered on duty away from Richmond.
Evans versus Hagan. --This case was tried yesterday before Senior Alderman Richard D. Sanxay in the City Hall. The action was in the nature of a demand on the part of James Evans against John Hagan, (familiarly called Hagan's John, King of the Creek Nation,) for forty dollars alleged by Evans to have been "given him (Hagan) wrongfully." The circumstances leading to this action are well known to the reading public, and need not be again alluded to A. Judson Crane, Esq., appeared for the plaintiff, and John S. Caskie, Esq., for the defendant. After arguments by the learned counsel, the presiding magistrate dismissed the case--first, because the precise amount of money demanded was not testified to, and secondly, because the correctness of the "account" was likewise not proved. Judgment given for defendant's cost, and appeal taken and allowed.
Promoted. --We learn that Sergeant F. W. Tichenor, of Caskie's Rangers, (a citizen of Richmond,) has, for his gallant conduct in the charge made by his company on Guyandotte, been appointed Sergeant Major of the cavalry attached to the Wise Legion.

C. S. District Court. --This Court, Judge Hallyburton presiding, was engaged during most of yesterday's session on the case of Ellett, who applies for a discharge from Captain Hayward's company of cavalry on the ground that he had furnished a substitute. It appears that he left Captain Hayward's company and joined Captain Hayward's company and joined Captain Mayo's company, (Mayo's Guard,) and Capt. Hayward had him arrested. The case was argued by Mr. John S. Caskie for the petitioner, and Mr. Raleigh T. Daniel for the Government. The Court took time to consider of its decision, and continued the case until Friday. G. W. Yarbrough was discharged from the military service on the ground that he was a mail contractor. Martin Laughnane was discharged from the military service on the ground that he had been subsequently transferred by the War Department to the general service.
