Bowels cut open.

--John S. Roane, a tailor, had his abdomen cut open, so that his bowels protruded, on Sunday evening, near the late residence of Aggy Peters, in Butchertown. It appeared that Roane saw a number of soldiers disputing in the locality alluded to, and hoping to prevent a disturbance drew near and requested them to desist. One of them replied to the interference by plunging a knife in Roane's bowels. Dr. Jackson was afterwards called in, and succeeded in replacing the entrails and sewing up the gap.
