The Mayor committed him to jail in default of $200 security for his good behavior. It is a pity the volunteers could not learn to leave their side-arms at the camp when on a visit to the city. It would save some of them considerable trouble.

Shooting in the street. --Between 12 and 1 o'clock, yesterday, an attempt was made to murder a negro hack driver named Henry Cooper, belonging to John A. Belvin, by a soldier named William Langdon, of Latrobe's Artillery, now encamped near this city. It is stated that Langdon stopped the hack at the corner of Main and Fourteenth streets, and ordered the driver to take him to the Fair grounds, which he refused to do unless he received the fare in advance. Langdon, who is said to have been intoxicated, then drew a pistol and fired upon the negro, who is indebted to the thickness of his garments and the toughness of his buttons for an escape from instant death. Two slugs were found in his clothing, and the skin was grazed in the region of his heart, but he was otherwise uninjured. Shortly after the occurrence, Langdon was taken into custody by officer Blankinship, and the affair will probably be investigated at the Mayor's Court this morning.
Mayor's Court. --The only case of any prominence investigated by the Mayor yesterday was the charge against Wm. Langdon, of shooting at a slave named Henry Cooper, the property of John A. Belvin, the particulars of which we have already published. There was no provocation for the offence beyond the negro's proper refusal to take Langdon to ride in his hack, except upon condition that the fare be paid in advance. For this he was deliberately shot at in a public street, and only escaped death by the narrowest chance. Lang don was remanned, to be further examined before the Hustings Court for felonious shooting. Frank Livingston, formerly a private in Col. Zoulakowski's regiment, from Louisiana, charged with obtaining money by false pretences, was brought into Court yesterday, but no further investigation of the case was had, owing to the absence of important witnesses.
