Brooklyn Oa Tuesday afternoon, says tbe Eagle, while we were returning to tbe city along Myrtle avenue, ws observed a crowd of persons at the corner of Cumberland street, and upon going up fonnd that It wo caused by a small boy, named Abraham Colyer. about six years of age, having been conducted home after being stabbed with a penknife' by another boy of tbe same age, named Jerome Van Lew. Il seems that with some other companions, they were driving a cow over some vacant grounds In the vicinity, when Jerome took offence and inflicted a severe and daa - feroas wound under Abraham's ear, causing a profuse flow of blood. Tbe wonnded lad was conveyed home, and medical attendance procured ; and we believe, though ap prehensions were fell fur his safety, be Is out of danger.
