From San Francisco, July 21 --

-The affair on board the bark Glimpse, bound for Steilacoom this morning, was a most deplorable one. Captain SARMAN had ordered a sailor to call him at 3 o'clock a.m. to get the vessel under way. The sailor overslept his time and did not wake him until 4 o'clock or later, and going down the harbor an altercation grew out of this delay and the sailors allege that the Captain struck the one who failed to wake him with a bar of iron, when the latter drew a knife and stabbed him several times.
One of the curs opened his abdomen, causing the bowels to protrude. The wound will prove fatal. The mate then attempted to set the signal of distress, but was prevented by the sailors. When the harbor police boarded the vessel 5 sailors were arrested including the one who did the stabbing, and 4 others charged with being accessory in preventing the signal from being set.
Captain SARMAN is in the United States Marine Hospital, and is in a critical condition. The sailors are in the calaboose, awaiting the results of the wounds.
