Another bloody deed. --On Saturday afternoon two soldiers belonging to the 4th Louisiana Battalion were passing in company along Main street, between 23d and 24th, when, from some cause at present unknown, one of them thrust a knife into the other's breast, inflicting a severe wound. The injured man, whose name is John Dowdy, was conveyed to one of the hospitals in the vicinity; and information of the occurrence having been communicated to Capt. Gibbes, of the Government prisons, he caused the arrest of the soldier who committed the deed, and he was handed over to Officers Seal and Perdue, of the city police. He gave his name as Zach. Burnett. It was reported yesterday morning that Dowdy was dead, but on inquiry last evening we learned that he was in an improving condition. The case will probably undergo investigation to-day at the Mayor's Court.
Arrests by the Military Police. --On Saturday Messrs. McCoul and Thomas arrested at the Danville Depot, a man named J. H. Goodman, a citizen of Powhatan county, who is charged with leaving that place to escape the performance of military duty, and exhibiting in this city, for the same purpose, forged papers as a paroled prisoner from Rich Mountain. Officers Thomas and Perdue also arrested, on Saturday, on 17th street, a desperate character called Richard Pearce alias Dick Duff, whose exploits in the line of murder and ruffianism have given his name a bad pre-eminence amongst offenders against law and order. Both of the above parties were conveyed to Castle Godwin.

Burglary. --The front window of the tobacco store of Messrs. Smith and Krebbs, on Main street, near 14th, was relieved of one of its panes of glass by some thief on Tuesday night last, about 12 o'clock, and three boxes of tobacco were taken therefrom.--Just as the robber was in the act of removing the fourth box, however, he was discovered by officer Perdue, who immediately gave chase and run him for several squares, but did not succeed in overtaking him.--Owing to the sudden departure which the fellow was compelled to take, he was unable to carry off any of the booty which had been transferred by him from the store to the street.
