Duel on the Tapis.

--The police, yesterday were as busy as been in endeavoring to arrest two gentlemen, who it was feared, were al out going to some battle ground to settle their misunderstandings, by endeavoring to administer leaden balls to each other, propelled from pistols by powder and caps, but failed to find the parties. About 9 o'clock in the morning a party left this city in carriages, and it may be that they have already exchanged fires and made friends. We give no names, because we are not at liberty to do so.
