--Our attention has been called to a thrilling duel which occurred on the battle-field of the "Seven Pines" between a member of Capt. Bordenave's Louisiana Zouaves and a Yankee desperado. At one stage of the combat, when the battalion of St. Paul, to which this company is attached, were driving before them the enemy, a Yankee soldier was observed in deadly conduct with the callant Louisianian. The latter was so near his adversary that a set-to with fisticuffs appeared to be imminent, when the Yankee. quick as thought, drew his pistol and blazed away in the face of the Zenave, without, however, hitting his mark. The Zonave, though slow, made sure, and drawing in turn his own trusty weapon, sent a ball through his enemy's titles. The cheers of his comrades rent the air in taken of his prowese, and marked inappreciably their sense of his meritorious behavior.
