Drawing a pistol.
--Yesterday, just after the case against McDonald
for stealing a Colt
's pistol had been decided by the Mayor
, a disturbance occurred at the entrance to the hall of justice.
In a few moments officer Seal
made his appearance, having in custody a man named John M. Wilson
, a member of the Texas Invincible
, attached to the 14th Alabama regiment, who had drawn a pistol to shoot Julius Nessler
, one of Caskie
had become dissatisfied with the verdict in McDonald
's case, which surrendered to Mr. Walsh
, gun-smith, the pistol claimed by Wm. A. Sharp
as his, and was about initiating a difficulty with one of the Caskie Rangers
, (to which company McDonald
claims to belong,) when Nessler interposed, and he drew his pistol.
His commanding officer
being present, made an eloquent appeal in his behalf, which induced the Mayor
to let him off. The pistol was retained, to be delivered to the party when he should be ordered on duty away from Richmond
