More Rioting. – The rioting between the native citizens and foreigners was again renewed last evening, about 9 o’clock, in Cross and Pearl streets – Clubs, stones and brick bats flew in all directions for nearly an hour, when the captain of the watch arrived with a body of men, and put both parties to flight. Several of the Irishmen were severely injured; and one American, we learn had his arm broken. The rallying words on one side were, “down with the natives,” and on the other, “down with the croppies.” – The crowd

Cannibalism – Too much Lip. – We understand a scuffle took place in our streets on Saturday last between Messrs. George Shirts and Silas B. Woolcutt in which the latter gentleman came out minus one lip. In consequence of this calamity we fear he will not be able to give quite as much lip in our streets hereafter as has been his custom. And although Mr. Shirts may have acquired a superabundance of lip by the operation, he certainly cannot be justified in adopting this method of shirting an opponent, or abating a misstep, and may possibly find himself minus his liberty of operating beyond the walls of a certain ugly tenement, belong to the people, where something more than lip service will be required of him.
