--A gentleman from Dinwiddie, named Cummins, visited Petersburg on Friday last, and leaving his horse at a blacksmith shop to be shod, proceeded down town to transact some business. Upon returning to the shop to procure his horse, to his astonishment and indignation he found that some malignant scoundrel, had either wrenched or cut the poor animal's tongue entirely from his mouth and thrown it upon the ground before him. All efforts to identify the perpetrator of the fiendish act were unavailing. The animal is a very valuable one, and will die of starvation unless killed by his owner.
