Assaulting a negro. --John D. Perrin, one of the city police, was before the Mayor yesterday to answer the charge of violently assaulting a negro boy on Christmas morning. Perrin saw a party ofPerrin saw a party of negro boys firing pop crackers in the street near St. James's church, and, as was his duty, started to arrest them. The boys, on seeing the officer, fled from him, and he, to frighten them, started parently killing him. Instead of taking up the boy, and doing what was necessary to restore him, Perrin became alarmed, fled the city, and went to Hanover county. Had he remained at his post, and thuhe matter would have passed by as soon as the boy recovered, for no one could have supposed that Perrin designed any injury to the child. When the case was called, the Mayor postponed the examination was called, the Mayor postponed the examination until to-day, and held Perrin to bail for his appearance in the sum of $300, at the same time suspending him from duty till the investigation is had.
