Called Court. --A Court of Hustings, consisting of Recorder Caskie, and Aldermen Bray, Timberlake, Lipscomb, Regnault, and Gwathmey, assembled at 11 o'clock yesterday, at the City Hall, for the purpose of examining James M. Armour, a soldier belonging to the 20th Georgia regiment, committed for examination by the Head of Police for the wilful and deliberate murder of Edward Dunn, an Irishman, and a member of the Whittington Artillery, from Alexandria, Va. The bloody deed was enacted on Byrd street, in this city, on last Saturday week. The operator in the transaction pretended to be one of the Provost Guard, but the bogus nature of the claim was shown on the inquest. Yesterday, Mr. Daniel, Prosecuting Attorney, appeared on, behalf of the Commonwealth, and after the examination of a number of witnesses conversant with the circumstances attending the murder, submitted the case without argument. The accused was remanded for final trial before Judge Lyons, in September next.
Alleged Insanity. --The Hustings Court, a few days since, sent James M. Armour, a soldier of the 20th Georgia regiment, to jail, to be tried by Judge Lyons, for the murder of Edward Dunn, a member of the Whittington artillery, on Byrd street, ten days since. On the examination Major Watties, of the 20th Georgia, testified and produced papers to show the fact that for four years past Amour had been an inmate of a Georgia Lunatic Asylum. We understand that since his incarceration in the city jail he has gone raving mad.
nd repairing to the rear of the prison, prevented it from being entirely evacuated by its enterprising inhabitants. Up to sundown last night none of the parties had been arrested. The City Sergeant will give $25 a piece for each one brought to him. The wall they burrowed under was not long since built up with stone, under the direction of the City Engineer, at an expense of $800. We append a list of the fugacious jail birds: John Fritz Kriebel and John E. Lelimoney, murder of Philip Sautter; George W. Nelson, robbery; Julius Shally, do.; Geo. W. Cassady, several cases of grand larceny; Richard Duff and Dan. Broderick, murder of two men in Butchertown; James Coyne alias Finnoven, murder and burglary; Wm. Guy grand larceny; Chas. Foster alias George Rigby, horse stealing; Wm. Amey, grand larceny; James M. Armour, murder of Ed. Dunn; Mike Shehan, highway robbery; Mike M. McLaughlin, horse stealing; Thomas F. Eanes, felonious cutting and assault. The city jail is notoriously insecure.
