Southern Greek fire;--The Mobile Register and Advertiser asserts that Colonel John Travis (of pistol-shot notoriety) has discovered, if not the ancient, at least its counterpart and equal, the modern Greek fire. Its components are kept secret, but Colonel Travis tenders the use of his invention to the confederate States. The Register gives the following account of a test of this fire: On Thursday evening last, near the bay road, in the suburbs of this city, in the presence of severa
nscript bureau, other officers of the army and navy, a score of ladies, and at least one representative of the press, Captain Travis made two distinct experiments of his fire or composition; using on each occasion less than half a pint of the prepara nd the wood cracked and hummed, and the flames arose again defiantly unquenchable.
On the occasion of these experiments, Travis's Greek Fire burned for something over a quarter of an hour in full vigor and force.
Its heat is intense, and flies at o

The foregoing is from the American Standard, published at Jersey City, New Jersey. --Discontent and ill-feeling among the Hessians are becoming quite common. The same paper contains the following, which it calls an "accident" Hugh McNichol, a member of the second Company Hudson Guard, of the Second Regiment, this city, was accidentally shot last evening, at Bordentown. It appears that two of the soldiers were skylarking, one having a bowie knife and the other a revolver, when the revolver was accidentally discharged, shooting McNichol in the bowels.

Extraordinary pistol shots. --Capt. John Travis, so well and so favorably known in this city, (says the Vicksburg Sun.) has had a class of ladies learning to shoot with the pistol. In these times it has become an essential and popular part of female education.--A few days ago, the Captain resorted with a few members of his class, to the residence of A. H. Arthur, Esq, for the purpose of practicing, with the following result. The target was placed ten paces distant. Mrs. W. H. Stevens r

Mrs. Gen. T. C. McMackin twice out of five times with a rest, and six times out of fifteen off-hand.
Mrs. A. H. Arthur twice out of five times with a rest, and seven times off-hand out of fifteen shots.
Capt. Travis says that it equals any shooting he ever saw by any class.
We are in no danger when every one of our noble ladies is a hero, and can use the weapons of Mars upon their enemies as effectually as they play the battery of their charge upon their

Mayor's Court. --His Honor had quite an array of colored subjects before him yesterday, to answer for trivial offences with which they were charged: Charles and Thomas, slaves to R. P. Archer, for stealing empty bags from the C. S. Government, were ordered to be punished. John Travis was heard for threatening violence to Mrs. Ann Shea, and then discharged. Philip Lambert, charged with being a deserter, was turned over to an officer of his company. The Mayor enjoins his night police to strict, untiring vigilance when on duty, to protect the people from burglars and garroters. If they are not more successful, he threatens to apply to the Council to have the force dismissed, and let the people become their own protectors.
