Narrow escape. --As the steamer Glen Cove with the 3d regiment, was leaving her wharf at Rocketts on yesterday, the rush of soldiers to the side caused her to loose steerage way, and her bow grazed the stern of the James-town, her paddle-box being very severely crushed. So crowded was she with troops, it was a matter of surprise that 40 or 50 men were not killed, but fortunately none were hurt. One man leaped from the deck, and caught on the rudder of the Jamestown, and was taken on board without injury. The spectators on the shore were terribly excited, several ladies, who had husbands on board, even fainting with emotion.
A Negro Woman, named Maria Scott, was arrested yesterday evening, by officer Perrin, for breaking the arm of a child of Mrs. Rachel Otterheimer, of Rocketts, and afterwards attempting to throw it in the river. It had excited her ire in some way, and she would undoubtedly have carried her felonious intentions into execution had she not been prevented.
