Hustings Court. --In Judge Lyons's Court yesterday the entire day was consumed in the trial of John G. Scott, charged with the murder of James Powers, in the city jail.--The parties quarreled and fought over a game of cards in their cell, at night. The next morning, when the prisoners were turned into the yard, Powers made some demonstrations, when Scott, seeing an opportunity, seized a brick and struck Powers on the back of his head, killing him instantly. Mr. Tazewell appeared for the Common wealth, and Mr. Griswold for the defence.--Scott has already been convicted of robbery, and his punishment ascertained at seven years in the penitentiary.
