Felonious stabbing. --A negro fellow, called Allen, slave to John Harris, was arraigned before the Mayor yesterday to answer the charge of feloniously stabbing and cutting Lawson, slave to Abram Warwick, on Tuesday night last. On Saturday night last the county patrol entered the negro quarters of Mr. Warwick, near the western suburbs, and calling upon Lawson, who was head man, demanded to be shown through the premises. In their search, they entered Allen's room, for which he blamed Lawson and threatened him with violence. This quarrel, thus begun, was continued till Tuesday night, when Allen attacked Lawson with a knife, inflicting a dangerous cut on the left side of his throat, and another in the left shoulder.--Owing to the critical condition of the wounded man, the Mayor postponed the examination of the accused until to-morrow, and committed him to jail.
