Rock battles. --We learn from residents of Rocketts old field that, for several successive Sabbath evenings, the "Up-town boys" and the "Rocketts boys" have been meeting near the lager beer brewery for the purpose of fighting rock battles, resulting in no great damage to either side. Last Sabbath, however, a much more dangerous weapon was used, and one from the effects of which some parent may have to mourn the loss of a son, unless it is put a step to by the authorities.--After fighting Rocketts boys" have been meeting near the lager beer brewery for the purpose of fighting rock battles, resulting in no great damage to either side. Last Sabbath, however, a much more dangerous weapon was used, and one from the effects of which some parent may have to mourn the loss of a son, unless it is put a step to by the authorities.--After fighting awhile with stones, pistols were drawn and freely used, one bail, we hear, passing through a room in which a family were at the time eating dinner. We know that our worthy Mayor has tried to put a stop to these rock battles, but when pistols, instead of stones, are the weapons, it becomes a duty to use more diligence and greater exertions to stop them.
