, were before the Mayor
yesterday to answer the charge of feloniously stabbing and killing George P. Wright

saw the wounded man and talked with him only a few moments before his death.
The deceased then gave his name as Deyle, a member of the 8th Louisiana, but since substituted in a Virginia regiment under the assumed name of George P. Smith
While Mr. McG
was talking to the wounded man Sidney Wicker

A woman standing by charged him with the murder, and he instantly left.
The examination was adjourned till Saturday next.
