Inquest.

--An inquest was held by acting Coroner Sanxay on Thursday last at 9 o'clock in the morning, at the bowling saloon of T. R. Stewart & Co., on 10th street, between Main and Cary, on the body of George Washington Carlon, a member of the First regiment Louisiana volunteers, who, from the evidence, it appeared had been murdered about 9 o'clock on Wednesday night, on the above premises, by William Maloney, a Baltimorean, formerly belonging to the First Maryland regiment.--The jury, on examination, found that the deceased had been stabbed through the left side with a bowie knife, and had received three cuts on the head, each one of which penetrated the brain. The quarrel which led to the murder was about the manner in which Maloney rolled in a game of ten pins between himself and deceased. Words led to blows, and those to the use of the knife. Maloney, who is a much stouter man than deceased, had been drinking, but knew what he was about. The jury returned a verdict of murder against Maloney, who up to yesterday had successfully concealed himself from the police.
