STABBING AFFRAY - It appears that we were incorrectly informed in regard to the place where the stabbing affray among colored residents took place on Tuesday night last. It did not occur at the 2nd Baptist Church, but at a house near it. The 'Herald,' of last evening, gives the following account of the affair: "It appears that George BURK had, about 11 o'clock, returned to his residence on Washington street, between Commerce and Beaver streets, and then retired to bed, leaving his wife still sitting up. Soon after he had gone to bed, his house was entered by Billy HYLTON and Bill BROWN, who succeeded in brewing a storm. BURK told them to leave his house; they refused and a fight took place, BROWN and HYLTON attempting to clean out BURK in his roost. To this proceeding BURK took a decided dislike, and then drew a dagger, the blade of which measures about 5 inches in length, and looks as if it could do its purpose of giving a person an instant permit to evacuate this 'vale of tears.' BURK shoved this little instrument quite lively into the corporosity of Billy HYLTON, cutting 3 different wounds in his back, near the left shoulder blade, and making a hole in his side. When this performance was finished, hostilities ceased. HYLTON and his friend BROWN left the house and BURK went and surrendered himself to Chief of Police Myers. As no complaint was entered against him, he was released from custody this morning. We are informed that it is the culmination of an old feud, coupled with the fact that BURK objected to BROWN and HYLTON associating with either his wife or daughter. HYLTON has thus far refused to prefer any charge against BURK."

SUDDEN DEATH - The 'Sentinel' of June 13th says: We regret to record the sudden death of Mrs. May RESSER, at Soquel, on Wednesday last, while present at a picnic near the town. The deceased was in good health up to the moment when the icy hand of death interrupted the festivities. She was seated with friends in cheerful conversation and in an instant was struck with heart disease, and fainted away, ending in death. 3 years ago, her sister, Mrs. RAGELS, died as suddenly, with similar disease, while at a picnic near the same place.
