Ruffianism in Washington.

The times are becoming lively in Washington. Congressman Van Wyck, who was never before known as a first-class combatant, has been assailed by three rogues (in buckram?) and let fly at them more furiously than honestJack. Why don't Gen.Scottkeep better order in the Federal Capital with his standing army police? Perhaps some of his heroes were the perpetrators of the deed. Letters from Washington have appeared in the columns of our city contemporaries stating that citizens have been stabbed and ladies insulted by these myrmidons.
