, the young man recognized by the Mayor
on Friday last to appear before the Hustings Court on the 2d Monday in August next, was sent on by him simply to answer an indictment for making an assault on Augustus Longinotti
, on Union street, near the Central
depot, and not, as stated by us on Saturday, for shooting Longinotti.
The wound was proved to have been inflicted by Vernon
's striking L. with the pistol after the latter had snapped it twice at him. The difficulty had its origin in a dispute about a pie.--Our former statement is corrected because injustice might thereby be done to Vernon
, who is represented as a quiet and industrious man, and who relies for his support on his work, and his character as a citizen.
We have no disposition to stop the one or asperse the other by an unintentionally erroneous statement.
