The bottles, houses, signs, stoops, &c., in Bayard street and vicinity of the fight, were in some places completely riddled with balls from pistols and guns, presenting altogether the appearance of a well riddled target.  The streets and sidewalks were also filled with broken stones, fragments of brickbats, &c., &c., the remnants of the riot.
