Fatal result of a sham battle. --On Tuesday afternoon, during the progress of a sham battle between some school boys on Union Hill, one of them, named Hammie Stewart, by accident left the ramrod in his gun, and firing it off, drove it in the stomach of one of his playmates, named Charles W. Cox, son of William H. Cox, where it struck against his backbone and there lodged until it was drawn out by a physician. The little fellow was immediately removed to his father's residence, in the neighborhood of the occurrence, where he lingered in great agony until Thursday noon, when death put an end to his sufferings. A jury of inquest was held yesterday by Justice Baker, of Henrico assisted by Constable E. W. Robinson; but owing to the absence at school of a number of boys who were witnesses to the transaction, it was adjourned till 6 o'clock in the afternoon.
