Shooting in a Bast room --Yesterday afternoon, between three and four o'clock, an affray occurred in the saloon of Maurice Dennis, near the Central depot, which resulted in the serious wounding of a soldier by a pistol shot. The man who committed the deed was immediately secured, and placed in the custody of Messrs. Mienjah Davis and John Perrin, of the night watch, who took him to the lower station house. He seemed to be considerably under the influence of liquor, and presented the appearance of having been beaten.

Investigation of a shooting affair. --The difficulty which occurred at the Central Saloon, kept by Maurice Dennis, on Sunday afternoon last, was investigated by the Mayor yesterday. The prisoner, Andy Bullivan, is a man who, judging from his appearance, would be a troublesome customer to any one who chanced to excite his passions. He was dressed in uniform, wearing a sergeant's jacket, with red trimmings. The wounded man, John Smith, is, we believe connected with the Wise Logion. His iley by Dennis's house on Sunday, when be saw the prisoner fire a pistol twice; that he caught hold of him, and took the pistol away. The pistol was fired at the young man Smith, who is now at the Louisiana Hospital.

inst the same person for an assault upon Young Newby, and the load being more than he could carry, he was committed. John Henry Cooke was arraigned upon a charge of assaulting and beating his wife, Mary Ann. Domestic discipline must be enforced in these times, when it is all important that peace should reign within our borders; but there is no excuse for resorting to blows, when a firm yet mild demeanor will accomplish the same purpose. Mr. Cooke was committed in default of surety for his good behavior. Frank Winga and A. Drugget, charged with threatening to assault Hugo Joseph and Joseph A. Chaventnear, were required to give security to keep the peace, and we believe they complied with the terms. The following fines were imposed for violations of the ordinance requiring bar-rooms to be kept closed on the Sabbath. John O'Neal $5; J. Hogan, $5; E. Francis, $5; Maurice Dennis, $20; and Henry Beekman, $5. Wm. Lee was fined $2 for depositing ashes in a public alley.
Another stabbing case. --A soldier named Dennis McGuire was brought to the cage at six o'clock last evening, charged with having feloniously stabbed another soldier (name unknown) at the drinking saloon of Maurice Dennis, adjoining the Central Railroad depot.

The locality in which this deed of blood was perpetrated is becoming quite famous for its rude encounters.

Seth Mack, a witness, deposed that he entered the saloon to get a drink; that shortly afterwards he saw a scuffle between the parties, and that McGuire then drew a knife and stabbed Douglas several times. Another witness, who carried D. to the Louisiana Hospital, west end of Broad street, testified that his bowels came out of the cut; and still another that he was in a very bad condition. No cause (save whiskey) was assigned for the summary use of the knife. McGaire was committed to stand an examination before a called Court of Hustings, on the second Monday in the present month.
