--A difficulty occurred at the University of Mississippi, last week, between two students from Hinds co., named Watkins and Miller. Watkins fired six shots at Miller, four of which took effect, doing some very serious damage, but did not prove fatal. Miller fired one shot at Watkins, but missed his aim. The difficulty originated in a ball-room, about a misunderstanding with a young lady, whom both the young gentlemen claimed as a partner for a set.
