Stabbing affray.

--An affray occurred at Trenton, on Thursday, between a party of soldiers of the Second Regiment and the Rahway troops, during which one of the latter was stabbed in the neck with a bowie knife by John Travis, of this city. Stephen Callahan, also of this city, was badly stabbed by a bayonet in the hands of one of the Rahway soldiers. Travis was arrested and is now confined in jail.

The foregoing is from the American Standard, published at Jersey City, New Jersey. --Discontent and ill-feeling among the Hessians are becoming quite common. The same paper contains the following, which it calls an ‘"accident"’

Hugh McNichol, a member of the second Company Hudson Guard, of the Second Regiment, this city, was accidentally shot last evening, at Bordentown. It appears that two of the soldiers were skylarking, one having a bowie knife and the other a revolver, when the revolver was accidentally discharged, shooting McNichol in the bowels. It was thought that the wound would prove fatal.
