  $noMbx = @(get-mailbox -database xxxx).Count
should do that. @(...) forces the result to be an array, even if only one object is returned. For an array you can always use the Count property to get the number of objects. Simple, isn't it?

Another way, but less elegant, is:
  $noMbx = (get-mailbox -database xxxx | measure-object).Count
Measure-Object is used to get the number of objects, or the average, sum, max, min of numeric properties, or the line/word count of text stream.

The result is in the var $noMbx, so just enter that name after executing one of above lines. or remove the leading part including the equal sign.
