Duel in the dark
--A misunderstanding (the nature of which we did not learn) between Messrs. Nicholas Manly
and Michael Clark
, of Baltimore
, led to a hostile meeting between the parties on Thursday night. They met in or near Adams's Valley long after nightfall, attended by seconds, and the ground being measured off, fired at each other at twenty five paces with rifles.
The nett result was a gunshot wound in the arm by Clark
, when both parties retired satisfied.
