ct I shall have to die, said the wounded Colonel; I would be glad to live, if it might be, that I might do something for my country; but if it cannot be, I shall have at least the consolation of knowing that I fell in a just cause. Several hats, apparently belonging to officers, were picked up, and a horse and buggy, belonging to B. F. Martin, at Pruntytown, a lawyer and defeated secession candidate for the Legislature, were part of the spoils. Thos. Surghnor, the inimitable Tom, as Bill Cooper used to style him, Captain of the Barbour forces, as he styles himself, and late editor of the Barbour Jeffersonian, at the first approach of danger, made tracks; he ran with all the speed the shortness of his legs would permit, and as fear lent him wings, he managed to get out of harm's way. The American flag has taken the place of the secession emblem in all the houses of Philippi. Several of these piratical flags were captured. The people are coining in from the country, and expressi

who repeatedly called upon him to shoot. After struggling some time to unloose his pistol, the stranger accomplished his wish and did shoot him. He left the house unmolested, as Mr. Lindsey did not, for a moment or two, proclaim that he had been wounded. When he did so, the man was followed and arrested on Governor street by Mr. C. G. Thompson, and carried before Senior Alderman Sanxay, who committed him to the cage for an examination before the Mayor this morning. He gave his name as Henry Cooper. After receiving the ball, (which penetrated through the abdomen and lodged in the flesh of the opposite thigh,) Mr. Lindsey walked up the street as far as Spence's corner, not seeming to feel very much inconvenience from its effects. At the latter place two gentlemen, who know of the occurrence, insisted on aiding him by taking his arm, and he was sent to his residence on Brooke-Avenue. The wound, though apparently slight and disregarded by the party receiving it, is quite likely to p
The late shooting case. --Henry Cooper, who shot John Lindsey in the Dime Saloon on Wednesday morning, was carried before the Mayor yesterday. Several witnesses were examined. One of them, Mr. Harrison, of Arkansas, testified that Mr. L. was choking Cooper when he fired; another, Mr. Hayward, testified that he did not see Cooper when he fired; another, Mr. Hayward, testified that he did not see Mr. L. have his hand on prisoner, but that he was advancing on him, telling him to shoot, when the pistol was presented and discharged; another witness testified that Cooper said he would have shot C. G. Thompson, who arrested him, if he had not thought he was an officer. Capt. A. G. Dickinson, of the Palmer Guards, Texas BattaliCooper said he would have shot C. G. Thompson, who arrested him, if he had not thought he was an officer. Capt. A. G. Dickinson, of the Palmer Guards, Texas Battalion, to which accused is attached, said that he had been informed by Dr. Peachy and another physician that there was an entire probability that Mr. Lindsey would soon recover from the effects of the wound. It was also stated that the ball, which had passed entirely through the stomach and lodged in the thigh, had been extracted.
Dangerously ill. --It was said yesterday that the condition of Mr. John Lindsey, shot on Wednesday by Henry Cooper, was not so favorable as it had been, and that the weather was decidedly against the chances of his recovery. Cooper will be before the Mayor again to-day, to be examined for committing the offence.
