Mayor’s Court. – There were a number of cases before this Court yesterday, none of them, however, of special importance. A patient from the Louisiana Hospital and one from the Winder Hospital were arraigned for disorderly conduct at the Theatre, while drunk. They were sent to the Provost Marshal. A negro woman was whipped for trying to strike a white woman with an axe, and a number of drunken soldiers were let off on promises to rejoin their companies.
