day afternoon, a small white boy, about eight years old, named James G. Brooks, was shot by William Bohannon, of this city, sometimes employed on guard duty at the Seabrook Hospital. It appears that road street, in rear of the hospital, and getting upon the fence overlooking the hospital yard, Bohannon hallooed to him to get down or he would blow his brains out. Suiting the action to the words, heless corpse, when his brains, in one solid mass, rolled out of his skull upon the ground.

Inquest. --A jury of inquest was held on Saturday morning over the body of James J. Brooks, the little fellow who was shot the evening before by William Bohannon.

Brooks, was sent on to the Hustings Court for examination. Mr. Crane, counsel for the accused, thought he could prove by competent witnesses that his client was mentally deficient, and therefore irresponsible in the eyes of the law for what it was alleged he had done; but the Mayor thought it was too grave a matter to dispose of so hastily, and therefore preferred that the committing court of magistrates should decide upon the case. Daniel Munn and J. R. Blankinship, soldiers, were charged with being very suspicious characters. On Monday night the front windows of the shoe store on the corner of Main and Fourteenth streets, kept by M. C. Gordon &Co., was dashed in, and soon afterwards, when the watchmen reached the spot, they found the accused near by. It was on this account that they were arrested. The Mayor was unable to detect a
