Shooting at a watchman.

--Wm. Henry and Frank Wilson were before the Mayor yesterday on serious charges — the first for being drunk and disorderly, firing a pistol at watchman John O. Hall, and drawing a pistol on F. W. E. Lohman; and the last, for drawing a knife on Lohman, and being drunk and disorderly. The prisoners attributed all their troubles to the use of small quantities of had liquors, a few drinks of which would make a preacher kill his father, or a soldier desert his flag. After a partial hearing, the Mayor adjourned their examination to a future day.
