Turbulent behavior.

--A difficulty occurred on Tuesday evening at Thomas Duke's stable, on 18th street, originating in some misunderstanding about settling for the hire of a horse and vehicle, the principal actors in which were Thomas Burnes and Michael McCarthy. The former, it is alleged, drew a knife upon Mr. Duke, when watchman Wickes came up for the purpose of arresting the offender, and McCarthy attacked the officer, tearing his coat, but causing no personal injury. The result was that Burnes and McCarthy were arraigned before the Mayor yesterday, and not only required to give security to keep the peace, but for their appearance at the Hustings Court to answer an indictment for misdemeanor.
