Am Assault.?About 9 o'clock last night as a colored man named Wm. Newton, who is well known as a quiet, Inoffensive person and a huckster in our markets was passing over the Maryland avenne bridge on his way to his home on Capitol Hill, he was accosted by three young men one of wbom struck him. Newton asked what be had been struck for, when one of the men, Thomas Uuigley, walked toward bim and drawing a knife gave himtL severe cut from his nose across his mouth and under his chin inflicting a ghastly wound. Newton immediately cried murder and Detectives Mc Devitt and Clarvoe, who were on Capitol Hill heard the cries and hastened to the spot and after a short chase arrested Wm. Barry and James W. Gatton, but Quigley made good his escape. The officers found Newton on the ground bleeding profusely, and they took the prisoners to the Seventh ward Btatlon and the wounded man to Dr. Croggon's office where the wound was dressed, and they afterwards took him to his home. A warrant was procured lor the arrest of Quigley and about 12 o'clock they succeeded in arresting him. This morn ing the case was heard by Justice Bos well who held Gatton to bail in S100 for a further examination and committed the others to .jail? Quigiev in default of f"00 and Barry in ?100 bail for a lurther examination The officers in this case deserve much credit for their energy in following .he case np. Arrival op Woi ndeo.?Yesterday morn ing the steamers State ot Ma.ne and Connecti cut arrived at the Sixth street wharf, bringing up wounded, mostly those enraged in the flgbtin* on Thursday last. On the State of Maine about 550 cases and on the Connecticut i?tr; and a large portion were seriously wound ed, over three hundred having to be moved on stretchers. Among the number were Capt. H. M. Stan. Co. A, 8th New York heavy artillery; Capt. J Kelcher, Co. C, 20th Mass.; and Lieut. H.Moore, Co. I, 1st Maine heavy artillery. There were several deaths on?-the boat on the way up and at the wharf. It was indeed a pitiful sight to see so many ot the brave boys' who left this city about a week ago with so much bouyancy and hopefulness returning si me of fh^m with wonr.ds from which they never will re-over, but such is the fate of war. These regiments, 1st Maine and Pth New York, (both heavy ar'illery armed as infaatry) were noticed by us at the time they left here as remarkably fine regiments and it seems they so distinguished themselves in their first fight (an encounter with Ewell's veterans) as to elicit warm praise from Gen. Meade in a special order. Tas Patbkt Okkicb Fair.? Wabhinoton. May 20, l=HM.

The cause of the act is not certainly known; but it Is alleged by some persons that be anticipated a spell of sickness that would confine him to t>rd a long time, and he chose to die thus rather than suffer. Others say that pecuniary em barrasfment pressed upon his mind, and dis appointment urged him to the act.
