Mayor's Court.

--There was little business before this Court yesterday.

Sam, slave of John Carey, was charged with having twelve grain bags supposed to have been stolen. The negro was discharged, the bags being all right.

Henry Westford, charged with stealing a saddle, bridle, and pair of spurs from Martin Murphy, was sent on to the Hustings Court. It was proved that Murphy had left the saddle, etc., at a woman's house in Screamersville, and Westford knowing the fact sent a negro for the saddle in Murphy's name, and sold it to Mr. Joseph H. Colquitt for $65.

R. G. Smithers was fined $3 for driving his wagon across the pavement of Broad street.

August B. Lipscomb was charged with receiving a large lot of horse shoes, stolen from Nance& Oliver. It appearing that the shoes had been stolen beyond the corporate limits, the case was sent to the county.

Kate Conners, charged with using abusive and indecent language to Margaret A. Packenham, was required to give security to keep the peace.
