Hastings Court. --Recorder Caskie and Aldermen Sanxay, Hray, Binford, and Lipscomb presiding. The case of Albert Rush, a slave, on an appeal from the judgment of the Mayor, was continued to the next term of the Court. The charge upon which this negro was arrested is the larceny of coal from Wm. H. Davis. The proceedings against Mordecai Carnell, Wm. Coghill, Robert A. Mayo, and Thomas Bass, for permitting their slaves to go at large, were dismissed. Rules were awarded against John H. F. Mayo, George E. Bond, and Thomas J. T. Talbott, to show cause why they should not be fined for permitting their slaves to go at large; which rules are to be returnable to the next term. The court adjourned for the term yesterday. Judge Lyons will commence his term on Monday next.
The New postage Stamp. --A very large number of the new Confederate postage stamps were disposed of yesterday at the Richmond post-office. Their introduction supplies a want which has heretofore seriously taxed the public endurance. The stamps are of the size of those in use by the old U. S. Government, are colored green, and ornamented with a very excellent bust of President Davis. Messrs. Hoyer & Ludwig, of this city, have the credit of supplying the Government with these needed articles.
Kicked by a horse. --A gentleman named Bowman received a severe kick from a horse, yesterday afternoon, near Davis & Hutcheson's stable, on Franklin street.
