A Pint of Whisky and Two Brutes.
BOSTON, Dec. 27 - John Cochlan and John Barnard, of Cambridge, called at 51 South Margin street, this city, Saturday, and drank half a pine of whisky with Jesse Perkins aged 55, who resides there.  Because Perkins would not go out and get the bottle refilled, they assaulted him, Barnard kicking his head into a swollen mass, while Cochlan chewed his ear until it hung to the head only by a few shreds.  Perkins may recover.  Cochlan has served six years for chewing a man's nose off.
