The Potomac Fisheries. --The Fredericksburg Herald, of the 3d inst., has the following well timed and appropriate remarks on the propriety of using every effort that can be to occupy and cultivate our fishing shores the Potomac: We are gratified to learn that Mr. Wm. L Pratt commenced fighting the seine yesterday at the fishery on Potomac which empties into the Potomac river. The point of fishing is well secured from the attacks of the Lincoln river craft, being under the protection of the guns of Smith's battery. There was no fall fishing at all, either in the Potomac or Rappahannock, in consequence of the fact that the army numbers in us ranks the men mostly engaged in this pursuit. There are other points on the Potomac which we hope to see occupied shortly. We have an unfailing meat-house at our very doors, which has been too long neglected. Let the Rappahannock river also be occupied with fisheries. It will pay well, and why they have not been heretofore op

Assault with a slung shot. --Mr. A. S. Leach, a resident of this city, made his appearance at the City Hall, about 2 o'clock yesterday, while the Hustings Court was in session, and made affidavit before Alderman Wm. B, Smith that he had been violently assaulted with a slung shot, by a man by the name of Walker, in the Richmond Examiner office, on Thirteenth street. In proof of his assertion, Mr. Leach exhibited his caput, which, judging from the gore that streamed over his features, had a pretty extensive excavation therein. He was suffering considerably from exhaustion produced by the loss of blood. The warrant that was issued was placed in the hands of officer Seal. As Mr. R. T. Daniel, the City Attorney, had an interview with the wounded man, it is quite likely that the case will go before the Grand Jury to-day, as he represented the assault on him as very unprovoked.
