p.2 Assault - A serious assault was committed on Saturday afternoon by James Jackson, a sailor on board the Florence Howard, upon Thomas Grace, the mate of the vessel. The two men had been ashore in a tavern where they quarrelled and fought, and it was supposed the quarrell was ended; but on going aboard his vessel the mate was suddenly assaulted with a handspike by Jackson, and received two severe blows -one of which opened the head and the other broke the cartilage of the nose. The wound on the head, though serious, is not considered dangerous. Jackson, who is a runaway sailor from Quebec, has been arrested.

- Capt. Polly, of the sch. Sweet Home, was fined on Saturday $1 for an assault upon one of his men.
