"Wake up the wrong Passenger." --This homely, but often exceedingly apposite proverb, was humorously illustrated yesterday. It seems that the day before a negro stumbled unconsciously in the Provost Marshal's office with an order from the Exchange Hotel for a bottle of champagne, bearing a capable carpet-bag in which the sparkling Heidrick was to be carried to the expectant disciple of the rosy god, Bacchus. Both the order and the carpet-bag were intended for a restaurant on Franklin street, not far from the Marshal's office. The consequence was, that the negro, order and carpet-bag were taken possession of by the Marshal. He took up his residence, mush against his will, in Castle Godwin, and yesterday three barrels of whiskey and a tierce of wine were seized and sent to the general reception room of the Provost Marshal.

Died from his Injuries. --We made mention yesterday of the fact that William D. Bowman had been brought before the Mayor on the previous day and held to bail to appear before, that functionary to day to answer the charge of having dangerously wounded Private George Balley, of the Davis Light Dragoons, by striking him on the side of the head with a brickbat. The injury turned out to be more serious than was at first imagined, Bailey, who was taken to the Medical College Hospital, dying yesterday from the effects of the blow. Coroner Sanxay held an inquest over the remains soon after being notified of the death of the party. The evidence before the jury was only as to the result of the blow given Bailey, which medical testimony established had fractured his skull and produced death. The verdict of the jury was in accordance with this fact. Other testimony may be introduced on the examination of the accused before the Mayor to day.
