Bloody affray.

--On Thursday night about 12 o'clock, as Watchman Robt. L. Carter and his partner were passing a house of ‘"undoubted"’ reputation at the Northern extremity of 15th street, in the Valley, they heard a great commotion inside, and went to see what was the matter. They found evidences of a desperate affray all-about — the furniture broken, the floor stained with blood, and a general excitement prevailing among the occupants. A man named James Keller, said to be a Baltimorean, exhibited a ghastly wound, extending from the top of his head down to the cheek bone. He was placed under the care of a surgeon, and subsequently carried to his apartment over the Confederate House, on Main street; below Fourteenth. One of the females of the basic, named Virginia McFadden, was arrested on a charge of cutting Keller; but, as the case has not yet been investigated, we are unprepared to say that she is guilty of the offence. Representations were yesterday made in regard to her health, which induced Judge Lyons to admit her to bail to appear before the Mayor on Tuesday next.
