Christopher and Francisco Dominick, claimed by Foster to have been particeps criminis in the affair, was, for the want of other evidence, discharged. Wm.

Mayor's Court. --The following embraces a list of the cases before the Mayor yesterday: Delsey, slave of John Cary, was charged with having one dress, a bonnet and a lot of fringe, supposed to be stolen, and going at large.
