Assault with a brickbat. --Wm. D. Bowman was brought before the Mayor yesterday, charged with having assaulted Private Bailey, of the Davis Light Dragoons, with a half brickbat, and inflicting a serious wound. The case was continued until the 10th inst. for further testimony.
Died from his Injuries. --We made mention yesterday of the fact that William D. Bowman had been brought before the Mayor on the previous day and held to bail to appear before, that functionary to day to answer the charge of having dangerously wounded Private George Balley, of the Davis Light Dragoons, by striking him on the side of the head with a brickbat. The injury turned out to be more serious than was at first imagined, Bailey, who was taken to the Medical College Hospital, dying yesterday from the effects of the blow. Coroner Sanxay held an inquest over the remains soon after being notified of the death of the party. The evidence before the jury was only as to the result of the blow given Bailey, which medical testimony established had fractured his skull and produced death. The verdict of the jury was in accordance with this fact. Other testimony may be introduced on the examination of the accused before the Mayor to day.

The late Homicide with a brickbat. --The inquest on Geo.

Conway and Joynes, and a portion of the temple and frontal bones taken away — part by the fingers and part by the instruments, which left the brain and its coverings exposed. The "hard substance" that inflicted the injury is said to have been a brickbat. The evidence before the Coroner did not show who threw the missile, though Wm. D. Bowman is under arrest for so doing
