Funeral honors.

--A few days since, one of the Kentucky volunteers, named William D. Wilson, was shot through the breast with a pistol ball by a comrade named George W. Bowman, on Main street, near Dickinson's Hat store. The wounded man was taken to the hospital at the new Alms-House. The party who inflicted the wound was delivered to the commanding officer of his company and was let off, as we afterwards heard and announced in Saturday's paper. On the evening of that day the body of Wilson was escorted past the Dispatch office to the Danville cars, en route for its last resting place, in the soil of old Kentucky.
