An affair of honor.

--The New Orleans True Delta, of the 4th inst., says:

‘ On Sunday morning last an affair of honor was settled in the California saw-mill, at the lower end of the Third district. The hostile parties were the Colonel of a city regiment and a private in the regiment, who is a leading merchant of this city. The weapons were officers' swords, and after both were slightly wounded the seconds interfered and their differences were honorably adjusted.--As we heard it, the origin of the difficulty was that the private refused to turn out with the corps on account of having objections to the uniform it had adopted, and a fire of men were sent out to arrest him and other absentees. He learned of this, and looking to the chief officer as authority for this measure, sent him a challenge, which was accepted.
