ATTEMPTED MAYHEM. -- Officers Ball and Glover arrested John Dunn yesterday evening, for taking a man's nose between his teeth and trying to bite it off; he came very near succeeding. After he was locked up in the station house, and as soon as the officers were gone, he got vicious and noisy, and abused the prison-keeper in language as strong and as obscene as he could make it. Captain Douglas came in and started with him to the dark cell, when he resisted furiously and tried his best to experiment on that officer's nose also. That fellow would rather bite a nose than a cream-puff or a banana, any time. The Captain choked him off, however, and shut him into the dark cell with his hands manacled behind him.
