A murdered man Returning to life.

--In a New Orleans court, on Tuesday, a man named John Dwyer, arrested on the 11th inst., was brought up for examination on a charge of having willfully murdered one Joseph Taylor, on board a steamboat. While the examination was progressing, Taylor, the "willfully murdered" man, walked into court, proved his identity, and thus procured the discharge of Dwyer. Dwyer had only thrashed him within an inch of his life — coming that near to "willfully murdering" him.
