Hospital Fracas. - At the Stuart Hospital, yesterday afternoon, a serious misunderstanding occurred between D. F. Craddock, member of company B, 3d South Carolina Regiment, and an invalid inmate, which resulted in a fight and the drawing of a knife on the part of Craddock, who used it upon his antagonist, ripping his bowels open in such a horrible manner as to place his life in imminent danger. Craddock was subsequently arrested and committed to Castle Thunder.
