tunate accident occurred at the corner of Twelfth and Main streets about 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, by which Lieutenant B. E. Hawkins, of the Confederate service, was so severely injured that his life is despaired of. Some difficulty having taken place between Lieutenant John J. Furney hough and another person, Furneyhough drew a pistol; whereupon Hawkins, his friend and companion, persuaded him to put up the weapon. In doing so, however, the pistol was discharged, and the ball, after cutting a piece out of Furneyhough's hand, lodged in the abdomen of Lieutenant Hawkins. Justice John F. Regnault, being contiguous to the scene of the accident, took Furney hough in custody and committed him to the lower station-house; the wounded man wa wounded man was carried to Seabrook's Hospital. Subsequently, his case being considered critical, Lieutenant Hawkins made a formal deposition before a justice of the peace, in which he entirely exonerates Furneyhough from any blame in the matter.
