Brutal assault.

--Yesterday afternoon a negro named George, slave of J. H. Greanor, got into a difficulty with a woman named Phebe, the property of Dr. Wellford, in the bottom near the Central depot, and made a violent assault upon her with an axe. He was at once seized and placed in custody of the police. The woman's injuries are severe, but probably not fatal.
