Robbery. --William Hinchman, a young man, appeared before the Mayor yesterday to answer the charge of robbing P. H. Redford of $80 in money on the 21st inst. Mr. Redford testified that on the day mentioned he stepped into Jim Price's soup-house, on 17th street, near Grace, to get a plate of soup. After satisfying his appetite he drew out his account book, containing his money, paid for the soup, and was about to leave, when Hinchman ran up behind him and seized his arms. Just then other persons in the room caught him by the throat and head, choked him to the floor, and, rendering him insensible, robbed him. He was positive that Hinchman was the man that first seized him, but could not tell any of the other parties. John Brown testified that Hinchman was not in Jim Price's house when the robbery took place, but was with him in the street. Witness was near the door; saw a man seize Hinchman, and started to go in, but, being warned off, did not enter the door. He watched th

her persons in the room caught him by the throat and head, choked him to the floor, and, rendering him insensible, robbed him. He was positive that Hinchman was the man that first seized him, but could not tell any of the other parties. John Brown testified that Hinchman was not in Jim Price's house when the robbery took place, but was with him in the street. Witness was near the door; saw a man seize Hinchman, and started to go in, but, being warned off, did not enter the door. He watched the robber when he came out of the house; saw where he deposited the book, and, informing officer Adams of that fact, accompanied him and recovered the book. The thief, he said, was a soldier, and made his escape soon after the robbery. After hearing three or four witnesses the Mayor adjourned the investigation till the 26th inst., in order to secure the presence of other witnesses. He also refused to bail the accused in any amount pending the examination, and committed him to prison.

bels have burned a bridge within three miles of your place and destroyed the telegraph. Who is at the instrument?" I replied to him: "O, that was only a Fourth of July hoax." I aimed to evade answering that part of his inquiry as to who was at the instrument, but he again put the question, when I replied, "It is me; J." in Lebanon. This I could do successfully, knowing the tariff of charges on the line. At 9 o'clock I received the following dispatch: "Lebanon Junction, July 4th. --To Knott, Ag't. Lebanon: Why did you telegraph me to hold the train and report to me the burning of a bridge and destruction of the telegraph by the reb I perhaps would not do again in a thousand cases. I waited perhaps ten minutes, during which I manufactured the following and sent it in reply: "Lebanon, July 4. "To B. M., Sup't: Two Irishmen came in on hand-car from the first section and reported it to me. They were intoxicated. I have since then sent out, and th
that we did not recognize them as prisoners of war, and that we had refused to do so, or even to recognize a flag of truce-accompanied by a white officer commanding a negro regiment. Last week, however, Gen. Gilmore addressed a note to Gen. Beauregard, of a most objectionable character, charging him with bad faith in not having sent back the negro prisoners, and making a demand for them, threatening, at the same time, to put in execution the retaliatory proclamation of Lincoln, of the 30th July last, declaring that he will execute a rebel soldier for every Yankee, white or black, killed in violation of the laws of war (!), and put at hard labor on the public works a rebel for every negro sold or detained in slavery. I learn that Gen. Beauregard has made a very dignified and severe reply to this most impudent demand, showing the want of good faith to be entirely on the part of Gen. Gilmore, who could not plead ignorance either of President Davis's proclamation or the act of the C
