THE CHATHAM RIOT. We learn that the examination of the parties engaged in the abduction of the negro boy is still progressing. The following have been bound over for trial at the approaching assizes: John Goodyear, the High Constable; John Hooper; I. D. Shadd, editor of the Provincial Freeman, and the man who received the dispatch from London, and instigated the whole proceedings; John Sparks, Edward Doston, Shelby Smith, and W. Street. About one hundred and fifty others are liable for riot, who will be served in turn.

We see that the Assizes meet at Chatham on the 18th inst., on which occasion they will have their trial.
