"In a Horn." --Wm. Floyd and Wm. Swift were found on yesterday evening, by some of the Provost guard, on the lower end of Main street, engaged in a charivari. They were "winding the mellow horn" at such a rate that the corporal of the guard, who, though he has a good deal of "music in his soul." could not stand the discord of vile sounds, and marched them off, with the unlucky horn, to the watch-house. They found they had a horn too much, and no mistake. The Provost Marshal intends to investigate the source of their supply of mellowing fluid.
Deserters returned. --Eight men applied to the Adjutant General of the State, on yesterday, for the purpose of enlisting in Floyd's Division. Upon investigation, it was found that they were not exempt from conscript duty, and furthermore, were already in the service, and had run away from their regiments. They were sent to the Provost Marshal.
