Affray in Baltimore.

BALTIMORE, Sunday, May 15.

An affray occurred on Saturday night in the Southern section of Baltimore. It originated in a house of disrepute at a late hour, and members of one rowdy club assaulted another with pistols. A young man, named AUGUSTUS TORT, was shot in the hip and also in the arm; three others were slightly wounded, but none considered in a dangerous condition.
