Shooting. --The Mayor yesterday investigated the case of Hezekiah Robinson, charged with feloniously shooting and killing Charles Tibbetts, and wounding Henry C. Wade, prisoners of war. The affair took place on the night of the 8th inst. Robinson, the sentinel, was standing on a hill adjacent to the prison, when the gun was discharged, the ball entering a second story window, and taking effect upon the men above named, who were standing some distance back in the room. Tibbet's said, before he died, that he believed the shot was accidental, and indeed this is proved, beyond doubt, by all the circumstances. The Mayor discharged Robinson from custody, and requested the officers of the prison to notify the coroner, should any such fatal event occur hereafter. R. H. Loyd, another sentinel, was arraigned to answer a charge of shooting at the prison windows, though it did not appear that any fatal result ensued. The Mayor remanded him, and the matter will go before the Husting

The Federal report of the fight at Piketon, Ky., all false. Nashville Nov. 20. --The Louisville Courier has had an interview with a gentleman from Bath county, who participated in the fight near Piketon on the 8th inst., who declares upon his own personal knowledge that there is not one word of truth in the Federal report of that fight. The fight occurred at a point on the Big Sandy called the Narrows, which is 15 miles from Piketon, and where the Kentuckians were concealed. When the Federals reached the abrupt angle of the road the Kentuckians opened a murderous fire upon them, which was kept up for half an hour. The Federals were signally repulsed, and withdrew under cover of their artillery. The Kentuckians had five killed and eight wounded. A man who was sent out after the fight to ascertain the extent of the enemy's loss reported that there were, by actual count, 219 killed and 150 wounded.
