--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.
, 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.
