Hard Lick.

--An aged man, named Solomon Hecht, got into a dispute yesterday, at A. Nott's auction house, with a person called John Dilworth, which ended in the latter slapping Hecht in the face. Whether from old age or fright, Hecht became insensible, and so remained for several hours, having occasionally spasms. Dilworth was arrested and committed to the cage. Afterwards Hecht, who had been removed to the back of Nott's store, recovered and walked away.
