Douglas, by ripping open his bowels at Maurice Dennis's liquor shop, near the Central depot, was carried before the Mayor yesterday for examination. Douglas, having made friends with the accused, materially softened his evidence, so the Mayor concluded to send the criminal before Gen. Winder, commanding one department of Henrico, to be disposed of according to military rule. The General, on the representation of Douglas, discharged Maguire and, intending to send him away his morning, granted him a furlough for a few hours. He overstayed the time, and being, as he said, afraid to go back, got beastly drunk, and was found by the police about 5 o'clock yesterday evening, just after he had fallen down on a rock near the Scale House, 1st Market, and made an extensive excavation in his forehead. He was bloody and dirty, and the officers locked him up. While they w
