Outrage. --Monday afternoon, three persons, representing themselves as Alabama soldiers, went into the house of Polly Freeman, a free negro washerwoman, living on the Basin, and seated themselves. On her requesting one of them to move, he drew a knife and plunged it into her neck, cutting several of the main arteries. He then made his escape, and his two companions, who were drunk, fell on the floor insensible. They were lying on the floor when Dr. Trent went to see the woman, from whose neck the blood spouted in a steady stream. It took one hour and a half to stop the bleeding, and one doctor is of opinion that the woman will die. The soldiers had better stop carrying their side arms, if they intend to make such use as the above of them.
