Shad. --We noticed, yesterday, at the stall of Messrs. Brown and Peasley, First Market, some tempting specimens of this highly esteemed fish, selling at 75 cents apiece. The appetite, having become surfeited with flesh and fowl during the winter, naturally turns to fish at the close of the season, and the advent of shad is cordially welcomed by everybody, except butchers and poulterers.
Keep them there. --The beautiful flag of the Confederate States hoisted near the Market-House by Messrs. Peasley & Co., having been rather rudely played with within a day or two past by the wind, three of the stars in its azure field were loosed and nearly blown off. This being discovered, the bunting was lowered and the stars promptly restored.--Keep them there, boys, and put another there for glorious Tennessee. "The cry is still they come!"
Oysters, &c. --Never was this delicious salt water luxury more abundant than at the present time. At the commencement of the season an effort was made to put a heavy tariff on those disposed to indulge in the luxury, but it failed, owing to the magnanimity of certain large dealers. Talking of oysters naturally reminds one of fish. The most enticing of the finney tribe is confessedly shad. Though very soon in the season, we saw a number of very fine ones at the old market a few mornings since, on the stalls of Messrs. Peasley & Jones. We learned, on inquiry, that they were captured in York river. In this region the regular shad season won't come for some months.

Almost a fire --Yesterday evening, about 4½ o'clock, the floor of the kitchen of the eating house of Mr. Wm. J. Hill, near the Vegetable Market, was discovered to be on fire, having caught from the heat of the stove. Messrs. Brown, Peasley and Jones, who live in the vicinity, woke open the door of the house, in which the flames were making rapid headway, and by duit of considerable exertion saved the whole block from becoming a prey to fire. The fire was hustled out of existence so speedily that it was not deemed necessary to ring the bell.
n't, " I replied. I went up to Gray; he was not then quite dead. John Reagan, of Mobile, a discharged soldier, deposed: Was about fifteen feet off; saw Short come along with a musket. Soon Gray came along the sidewalk, in front of Brown & Peasley's. Short cried "halt." Gray didn't seem to hear him, and kept on. Short then shot at him. Gray jumped up and fell dead. When I asked Short what he did it for, he said he did not know his gun was loaded. George Washington Todd deposed: Was making my marketing this morning, and had advanced to the vicinity of the vegetable department, nearly opposite to Messrs. Brown & Peasley's. Heard Short cry "hait." Deceased appeared unwell, apparently just out of the hospital, and more in want of the morning air than any other thing. He turned around, seemed to smile, and kept on. Short raised his musket (here witness illustrated the manner of the murder by means of his cane,) and fired. He shot him as deliberately as your Honor would a par
