A Sbeiocs Fight Bbtwekx Sailors. 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.

Pemocrallo German citizens of the Fifteenth

Dales, D. D., and Rev. Mr. Watson, mtesionary
to ERjpt waited on General Grant
at the War Department. They wore intro
duced by Urifradier-Genoral James A, Eufcin,
and after spending a short .time in agreeable
conversation with General Grant, left with very
favoiuble impressions of the trroat aoldir. The

Tho Currency Board.
The Board of Esamluera, convene to discuss

selected by the Comptroller and consists of the
following gentlemen:

Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Etode Island,
and the Southern States, are not represented.
The board sits with closed doors. These dchDe
rotions will occupy several days.
General Hancock.
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.
