JUSTICE BALDWIN'S COURT - On Saturday, Martin STANLEY, alias James BARRETT, was examined before Justice Baldwin, on a charge of breaking jail. It is supposed that STANLEY is the same individual who broke into the house of Mr. FANNING in December, 1862, and stole valuables of a considerable amount. He was arrested a short time afterward, but broke jail and escaped, nothing being heard of him until his arrest recently for attempting to enter a store at Woodbridge, in the night, by force. He was discharged on a writ of habeas corpus, on the charge of entering BURT's store at Woodbridge, but was at once re-arrested on an old charge, that of breaking prison, as above stated. His examination occupied nearly the entire day. The entire question appeared to be one of identity. The witnesses were divided as to his identity - 2 positively swearing that he was the man, and 2 more being in doubt. He was held for further examination today.

HOMICIDE - A Mexican named Juan SATUABARO was killed on Wednesday last at Jenny Lind by a man by the name of Peter ESAU. The Mexican had been drunk all day and had armed himself with a rifle and knife, and threatened to kill somebody, or get killed himself, he aimed his rifle at the crowd, when ESAU stepped into the street and shot him dead with a pistol.

NARROW ESCAPE - On Monday last as Mr. Wm. L. OVERHEISER, Esq., accompanied by an attaché of this office, was driving a span of horses across the Calaveras bridge at Mr. COOPER's ranch, the horses became frightened, and as there is no railing on the bridge, one of the animals pushed the other over the side, the latter in his turn pulling the other into the water. One of the horses fell on his back and the other on the top of the first, both tangled up in a manner seriously interrupting their efforts to swim ashore. It was with some difficulty that the animals were saved, and very fortunate that neither of the men were injured. A little damage to the harness was all the loss sustained.

NATIVE CLARET - Mr. H.C. SHATTUCK brought half a dozen bottles of native claret wine, of his own manufacture, to this office yesterday; and if the quality is to be judged by the rapidity of its disappearance, it may be considered the very best article ever squeezed from the grape. Mr. SHATTUCK's vineyard is on the Lower Sacramento road, 4 miles south of Woodbridge. He has 20 acres of land planted with vines - the whole being 25,000. They are only 3 years old.

HELD to ANSWER - Martin STANLEY, alias James BARRETT, was examined before Justice Baldwin yesterday, on a charge of breaking jail, and held to answer.

JUSTICE BALDWIN'S COURT - Alvina PATRONA was fined $5 and costs of prosecution yesterday, for committing an assault upon another woman and handling her a la Heen-an.

A HORRIBLE DEATH - A correspondent of the Marysville 'Appeal,' writing from Clipper Mills, June 24th, gives the following details of a horrible and fatal accident: Luther WHITE was killed at the Deadwood Mill, near Strawberry Valley, last evening. He fell backwards towards the large circular saw, and was sawed almost in 2. The saw struck him near the backbone, cutting off all the ribs on one side, and mangling the whole lower part. Mr. WHITE was a large and powerful man, weighing over 200 pounds. He was a native of Addison, Maine, but was lately from Boston. His age was 47 years.
