Under the head of ‘"Charge Dismissed,"’ we had yesterday an account of the arraignment before the Mayor of Danl. W. Lea and Robt. Brannon, who had been arrested on a bench warrant on an indictment found by the Grand Jury of the Hustings Court, for feloniously assaulting a Mrs. England. The Mayor, as already intimated, dismissed the charge of felony, the offence of the parties being a simple assault. We are informed that we misunderstood his Honor in giving him credit for ‘"some comments on the ignorance and stupidity of indicting the parties for a crime so entirely out of the range of proof."’ He did not animadvert on the conduct of the Grand Jury in finding the indictment against the parties.
