--About 12 o'clock on Wednesday night, a row occurred between a number of soldiers in the house of John Lawless, on Jefferson street, during which James Carney
was killed by a cut in the abdomen with a bowie-knife in the hands of James Gallagher
, Carneck and Gallagher
were both members of the 2d Tennessee regiment and were on their return to Tennessee
A coroner's inquest was held on the body of the deceased, and it being clearly proved that the killing was done by Gallagher
, a verdict was rendered by the jury and a warrant issued for his arrest.
The parties were drunk at the time of the fight, and the misunderstanding between them was caused by some trivial matter.--Lynchburg Republican.
