Murder.

--John Carter, Edward Skahan and Patrick McAnara, were before the Mayor yesterday to answer the charge of feloniously stabbing and killing George P. Wright, on the 1st of July. When the case was called a large number of witnesses appeared and testified, but none of them recognized either of the prisoners as the murderer. Patrick J. McGrath 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 came up and inquired as to his condition. A woman standing by charged him with the murder, and he instantly left. The examination was adjourned till Saturday next.
