Fends of the "Cats."

--The various juvenile organizations, styling themselves ‘"Cats,"’ and representing different sections of the city, still keep up the rend that bad its origin many years ago, and give battle to each other with rocks every convenient opportunity. On Friday last, we are informed, one of these rock skirmishes was progressing vigorously in the neighborhood of Howard's Grove, and the usual usages of their warfare were varied by the discharge of pistols. A lad named Green received a serious wound from one of his own comrades, named Page, who probably fired the wrong way by mistake. We do not know that any authority exists to put a stop to these combats, though parental larruping would probably have a good effect.
