Admitted to bail. --John T. Davidson and Jacob Eisenoer appeared before the Mayor last Saturday, charged with feloniously shooting each other in Broad street on Thursday afternoon last, and were each held to bail in $1500 to appear before a called Court for further examination.
Damage at Blountsville. --The Bristol Advocate, of Friday, gives the following as the amount of damage done at Blountsville, Tenn., by the late raiders: It is a sad task for us to state that the larger and better portion of the town of Blountsville was reduced to allies. W. W James, John Powell, John Fain, Sr., Dr. N. G. Dulaney, E P Cawood, Rev. N C Baldwin, Mrs. Martha Rhea, F L Bumgardner, and Maj J G Eans, are among those whose houses and effects were consumed. The court-house, with the offices of the clerks of the county and jail, were also consumed. The loss is immense, not less than half a million of dollars.
Acquitted. --Peter Reynolds, charged with stabbing John Burns on the 11th of August, has been examined before a called court of magistrates and acquitted. John A. Fariss, indicted for stealing $250 worth of clothing from John McDonough, has been tried before Judge Lyons and acquitted.

He had no papers about his person; or, if any they were forged. I will give the above reward for his delivery to any jail so I can get him again. D. A. Brown. oc 5--1t*
Later from the North. The Baltimore American, of the 2d instant, has been received. We copy its summary of news: From Washington it is stated that in military circles there it is supposed that no glorious impediment will interfere with reinforcing the Army of the Cumberland. From Cairo we learn that Gen. Sherman's corps of Grant's army is on the move, but whither it is not known. The Indianapolis Journal, of Monday, states that 15,000 troops are to be sent forward to Gen. Rosecrans immediately from that place.

Several parties have been arrested there and the matter will be investigated. A t
