Clipped From The Evening Post
Fmn th Albany Daily Advrturr. We find the following in an extract of a letter from a New Orleans correspondent to his friend in Canandai- Canandai- gua, published in the Ontario Repository. It is to be hoped that the injury sustained by Mr. Morri in Uii ratnan assault, is not of so serious a character as feared by the writer : " A most eross outrage w as committed on Mr. Morris of this city, the son of Thomas Morris, of New York, one or two evenings since. He was stabbed in the street by a ruffian, about 10 o'clock at night. The instrument used was a sword cane, and penetrated about 7 inches between his lower nbs. His life bas been despaired uf, but reports 111 is morning are somewhat favorable lo his recovery. 1 am loid ihalMr.M.in his deposition swears that he cave no cause of provocation, and that he wa peaceably returning home, when he was thus wautonlv assailed. Rumor is, that the assailant is at large, an I not yet arrested. I must not abuse my adopted city, but truly I cannot but condemn Uie existence of too much aiuthvolilhe bar! of Uie uuhlic auUioruiea on the aubieet 01 such outrages.
