Charge of assault.

--Joseph Saddler was arraigned before the Mayor yesterday morning, charged with an assault upon a policeman, at the house of T. B. Fletcher, where he was employed, between 3 and 4 o'clock yesterday morning. Saddler had an ugly gash upon his head; which rather gave the impression that he was the party assaulted. The whole affair grew out of the controversy between Fletcher and Ferguson about the ownership of the house. Policeman Mack testified that Saddler said that Fletcher had no business in the house, and that he intended to put him out. This man and two others came out, endeavored to jostle witness, and tried to get his club out of his hand. In the melee, Saddler got his head injured, but witness denied having struck, him. The Mayor required the accused to give security in the sum of two hundred dollars for his good behavior.

John Galt was also charged with drawing a pistol upon policeman Mack, and held to bail in the same amount to keep the peace.
