Fighting in Market. --Captain Wilkinson, at an early hour yesterday morning, arrested a man called John Hughes, who was at the time disturbing the peace of the people in the 1st Market-House, he having selected that spot for a pitched battle. The defendant desired a continuance of the case until this morning, and accordingly he was required to give surety for his good behavior and appearance at that time. He could not do it.--Hughes must be gotten up on the high pressure principle. A pair of formidable brass knuckles were found on his person. The officer represented his conduct in market yesterday morning as being most shocking to all delicate observation.
