Stabbing affair.

--Dennis McGuire, a member of the 5th company New Orleans Zouaves, charged with feloniously cutting Wm. Douglas, another Louisiana soldier, was carried before the Mayor yesterday, for examination. The stabbing took place Monday evening, at the drinking saloon of Maurice Dennis, near the depot of the Central railroad. Seth Mack, a witness, deposed that he entered the saloon to get a drink; that shortly afterwards he saw a scuffle between the parties, and that McGuire then drew a knife and stabbed Douglas several times. Another witness, who carried D. to the Louisiana Hospital, west end of Broad street, testified that his bowels came out of the cut; and still another that he was in a very bad condition. No cause (save whiskey) was assigned for the summary use of the knife. McGaire was committed to stand an examination before a called Court of Hustings, on the second Monday in the present month.
