RIOTOUS AND DISORDERLY. - At a late hour of Friday night, it was reported at the police office that a party of the 20th N. Y. S. M. were guilty of very riotous conduct in the lower part of the city, and a squad of eight policemen were sent to apprehend the rioters.
Before their arrival, however, the disturbance, which was confined to a party of soldiers at the Moore Hospital, was quelled. Three men were severely injured in the fracas, one being stabbed, another having his skull broken, and the third pretty badly bruised and battered.
