--Yesterday morning the dead body of a negro man, named Wilson, slave of a Mr. Minor, of Goochland, was found floating in the locks, in rear of Gallege Mills.
Upon his left temple was a deep gash, which induces the suspicion that foul play was practiced.
A jury of inquest was summoned, but after a short conference it adjourned over till this morning.
