Violent assault.

--On Saturday last, while Peter Doyle was figuring up some accounts of work done at the Tredegar Foundry, he was accosted by Dillon McCormick, and after some conversation relative to a previous difficulty, Doyle received a blow with a piece of iron over the bridge of his nose, which knocked him senseless and came very near settling his accounts for this world. McCormick was afterwards taken into custody, and the Mayor yesterday required him to give security for his appearance to answer an indictment as well as to keep the peace and be of good behavior.
