Last night abeul 12 o'clock, a man came ruuDlngln breathless baste into the becoud JJlslrlcl Sla Hon, and slated that a sailor lay ou the walk at Mtcond and Hhippen streets, frightfully stal bed. OUlcers immediately started out with a stretcher, end rindlug the man as stated, car ried linn to the Hosplial. He gave bis name as Chatles W inters, kteper ol a sailors' boarding houte at Front and 8pruce streets. His face was lernbiy laceraiea, ine eyes almost cut out, and along gash extended along the leftside of the neck, Just eacaplrg the Jugular vein. The ap pearance of the man was frigti if al: his face was coveted with blood, which kept flowing out of his many wounds; his hair was matted with clotted blood, and his clothes were saturated. He tald Uiat another sailor had stabbed him; and giving the locality where the would-be rnuidtrer would probably be found, Ollloors Leavltt and Conroy, of the Seooud District, Marled lor it. They arrested a man who gave his name as McCarty. but who is known as Wliliam Bropby, a sailor. He was taken to the (Station, and gave the following details of t heafl'ray: He, in company With W'liiteisaud two other "Jolly tars," bad drai'k together lu a saloon in Hhippen street, beiow Fourth; they went out together, Brophy and Winters side by side, down Blilppen street. They hud not gone far, when Brophy alleges H at Winters drew out a billy, or something similar, intending to uaeitnpou him. "If thal'a your game," cried ltiopliy, "come on," and he drew out a large Hheatu-knlfe, which all aallors carry, 1 be fight commenced, and fiercely raged telw een the two sailors, murderous blows being given and returned, until Winters, faint from the lots of blood, sunk down upon the pave- roeut, wnue Ufopuy, Deneviug mm aeau, neu from the spot. The officers, thinking that Brooby's story of Winter's using a billy or other deadly weapon w as (.Imply fabricated for the purpose of shield ing himself from the full justice which suoh a murderous assault would email, went back to the place where the wounded man was fouud, to look for the weapon. Not finding it, they went up to the Hospital, and, Kearohlng his fiocbets, drew forth a heavy siung-sbot; the eaden ball weighed more than a pound, was studded with nails, and was attached lo a thick Hoe. One blow from this deadly weapon upon the head would be sufficient to crack tu, eskttll. Biophy was committed by Alderman Titter xnary to await the result of Winters' injuries. Thb Democracy. A large meeting of the Pemocrallo German citizens of the Fifteenth Waid was held at the headquarters of the Democratic Club, No. 2104 (Joules street, Mr. John Bauer aciing as President, and Mr. Jacob bohniidt as fetcreiary.

The i-udden backing down of Hancock la re voking that portion of his oider directing Gene ral Mower to return to the command, of his regiment, is attributed here to instructions from Grant, but nothing is known positively, as Grant's officers maintain perfect silence as to ths character of the despatches seat yesterday to Mower bv telearrapb. It is hardly pucsible that Grant will permit Ilancock to reinstate officials removed by his predecessors, as this ls.in direct violation of Grunt's order issued after Sheridan's removal.
