Violent assault.

--On Tuesday night, about 7 o'clock, a negro named John, the property of H. A. Holines, went into the grocery of Benjamin Teyman, on Cary, between 17th and 18th streets, and threw a heavy missile at the proprietor, which struck him on the head and made a fearful wound. Subsequently, the negro met Watchman Boze on the street, and surrendered himself, saying that he knew he would be taken any how. The Mayor yesterday received a message from Dr. Jackson, in effect that Teyman's condition was such that he could not attend Court, and the examination of the prisoner was therefore postponed to Friday, the 25th inst. At present, we are unable to state the origin of the difficulty.
