--Hon. D. C. DeJarnette
, member of the House of Representatives from this State, and E. A. Pollard
, one of the editors of the Examiner,
were bound over by the Mayor
yesterday in the sum of $2,000 each, not to engage in a hostile meeting for the next twelve months. The Mayor
announced that the correspondence which was published in the Whig
of yesterday between these gentlemen had determined him in the decision which he had given, but, if it was desired, witnesses should be sent for and examined.
remarked that he was willing to rest his own defence upon that correspondence; "certainly there was no threat on his part in it."
Hon. Waller R. Staples
, counsel for Mr. DeJarnette
, expressed a desire to have summoned Mr. Preston
, the gentleman who had acted as the friend of his client in the transaction.

was prepared and sent to that paper two or three days ago, but that its publication had been delayed by the printers from some cause unknown to him. This statement he thought due to Mr. DeJarnette
It being desirable to prove who authorized the publication of the correspondence.

, foreman of the Whig,

he sought Mr. DeJarnette
at the House of Representatives, and remonstrated with him against taking any notice whatever of it.--Mr. DeJ
replied that a correspondence was then in progress about it. On Tuesday, after the parties had been held to bail to appear before the Mayor
, he was met by Mr. DeJarnette
, and charged by him with having informed the authorities of the conversation which had transpired between them.
) had done no such thing; although, had it not been his belief that information would be lodged against them, it is probable he would have done so. Mr. Hart
wished it to be distinctly understood that he had done nothing inconsistent with his whole life; for the last thirty years he had been a sworn officer of the law.
still adhered to his decision, when the parties gave the required bail and left the Court
