Mayor's Court --A man named John Mulligan was before the Mayor yesterday on the serious charge of making a felonious assault upon Lawrence Taff, and taking from him a purse containing $7.50; but fortunately for himself and for the good name of the city, he proved his innocence and was set at liberty. A fine of $10 was imposed upon Frank Casig foul for keeping his bar-room open after 10 o'clock P. M. on the 28th of October. M. B.

to dispose of yesterday, and the extent of the evil has led to the probable re-establishment of that local institution known as the "chain gang."

Fatal case of Shooting. --About 4 o'clock yesterday morning Patrick Holmes, one of the sentinels at the Louisiana Hospital (Baptist College.) a short distance west of the corporation line, was shot by another, named Hugh McGinley, both being on duty at the time. The ball took effect in the knee, and the wounded man died an hour after the occurrence. McGanley was arrested and carried before Gen. Winder, who sent him to the Mayor of the city, inasmuch as neither of the men were soldiers, but merely hired to guard the hospital. The investigation of the matter was postponed with a view to procure competent testimony. We cannot learn that there had been any previous difficulty between the parties, and it may turn oat that the shot was accidental. The Coroner was notified to hold an inquest.

unts, amounting to $610, were then cashed by Mr. Pursell. This paper was identified by Colonel smith as the one prepared in his office. The pay account received by King of Lambath was not prepared at his instance. This was also accompanied by a certificate, reading--" Col. Smith says he will pay enclosed claim as soon as money in Department, and will give it preference to all there." The testimony previously given was repeated in substance by the Witnesses, after which the Mayor called Gen. Winder, who stated that he had seen Tormey twice at his office, having sent for him in consequence of certain representations he had heard, relative to his passing as an aid-de-camp of Gen. Johnston. Tormey professed that it was merely a joke of his, and nothing further transpired.-- A. J. Ford had seen the prisoners at his house together. After the arrest of Miller; Tormey said that he was sorry he had ever made his acquaintance, for it had got him into difficulty. At the request of the coun

made had fully dried; that Col. DeVilliers told him it was written by your order; that by its tenor he was limited to the city of Richmond; that the original paper was put on file with Lieut Todd's other papers--Lieut. T. then being in command at this post — and that he has not since seen the paper. Surgeon Higginbotham states that DeVilliers frequently asserted that he had been paroled by order of the Secretary of War. Charles L. Chapman, prisoner of war, states that Colonel DeVilliers was at one time Captain of his company, and that he was then known as DeVilliers, in both cases the prefix being Charles A. There can be no doubt as to the identity of DeVilliers and DeVilliers, as he was known to Chapman by both names. Your obedient servant, Geo. C. Gress, Captain Com'dg. Brig. Gen. John H. Winder, Com'dg. [copy.] Richmond, Nov. 30, 1861. I am certain that Colonel DeVilliers was on parole when he made his escape. Jno. H. Winder, Brigadier General,
perhaps well for those who set such a high value upon the chain, that it was not produced yesterday. Joseph Gray, a free negro, charged with stealing a watch from Henry, slave of Miss Nancy Ellett, was remanded for trial. Since the time that an enterprising Yankee opened a trinket store in Richmond, where everybody and family were invited to "take their choice for one dollar," the colored population have had an unconquerable passion for "jewelry," and those who can't come by it honestly will get it anyhow. Two persons, named Wm. Riley and Dan'l. Bresenham, to whose movements or characters there was attached something suspicious, the nature of which we did not learn, were turned over to the care of Gen. Winder. A charge of Certain illegitimate practices was brought against one Jerry Sullivan, who really looked very little like a gay deceiver. The case was continued for witnesses. Thomas Bradford was fined $5 for keeping his bar-room open on Sunday the 1st inst.
