a runaway member of his own company, who had joined as a substitute, under the name of M. Malloney. Officer Thomas instituted a search of the person of the party, and found in his pocket-book two discharges from the Confederate States Army, as an Irishman, one certificate of the British Consul that he was a Scotchman, and a lot of transportation papers for him to proceed, as a discharged soldier,&c.

Some suspicions entertained by the prisoner relative to the conduct of Deitrick in regard to his wife led him to seek an interview, which resulted in a quarrel, ending with the stabbing complained of.
