From the Richmond Dispatch, 9/3/1864, p.1, c. 6

Mayor’s Court, yesterday. – Recorder Caskie officiating. William O’Brien, charged with drunkenness and indecent conduct in the street, was sent to the Provost-Marshall to be forwarded to his command; Richard Richards, charged with stealing one oil cloth from John C. McCutchen, was remanded for indictment by the Grand Jury of the Hustings Court in November; James Barry, for assaulting and beating Catherine Sullivan, was committed in default of security to keep the peace; Mary Miller was required to give security for good behavior, on the charge of using abusive and threatening language towards Carrie Bentley; Henry Robinson, a free negro, charged with aiding and abetting Emeline, the property of Edwards, to escape from her owner, was remanded for examination before the Hustings Court; a charge was preferred against Emanuel Raymond of stealing three hogs, the property of the Officers’ Hospital, but there being no evidence to sustain the accusation, he was discharged.

(In none of these cases was there any testimony given which is worth repeating.)
