Death of a United States Army officer. --Lieut. Col. John Monroe, of the Fourth Regiment, United States Army, died at the residence of his niece, in New Brunswick, N. J., last week. He was a native of Scotland, came here in early life, was educated at West Point, and entered the service in 1814. He served through the Black Hawk, Florida, and Mexican wars. In the latter contest he was with Gen. Taylor from Point Isabel to Buena Vista. For his gallant conduct in that war he was brevetted Lieutenant Colonel, and advanced to that grade in 1856. At the close of the war he was appointed Territorial Governor of New Mexico, and more recently had been in command of the troops in the Northwest, from which he had just been relieved.

Among other things, it was said that he expressed a great desire to see his old commander once more before he died. Unfortunately, Gen, Jackson, who was in Washington as a Senator from Tennessee, heard nothing of his, illness until The heard of his death. Upon learning the anxiety to see him which he had manifested,
Miscellaneous Offences. --The utter inability of mankind to sustain even a decent part in an encounter with Richmond whiskey was painfully illustrated at the Mayor's Court, yesterday. Michael O' Bryan, charged with being drink and breaking in the house of Charles Palmer, was remanded for trial.--Michael Kennedy and James Broderick, arrested for fighting in the street, were committed in default of surety for their good behavior.--John Monroe, charged with assaulting William Anderson, was required to give security to keep the peace.--Daniel Workman, charged with cutting Daniel Sullivan, was arraigned, and Sullivan testified that they were going about drinking whiskey, and that he (Sullivan) was very drunk; and that, without provocation, Workman drew a knife and cut him on the head and throat. Contradictory testimony in regard to the circumstances was introduced, and the Mayor determined to deliver the prisoner up to the officers of his company, now under marching orders.--Some o
