Shooting affray.

--Yesterday afternoon, about 6 o'clock, a shooting affray occurred between Jacob Eizenhower and John T. Davidson, two engineers on the Richmond and Fredericksburg railroad, near the corner of 7th and Broad sts. Eizenhower fired five times at Davidson, who had a pistol drawn, but not being able to make it go off could not return the fire. D. narrowly escaped with his life, receiving a slight wound in the face, having one of his fingers shot off, and still another ball penetrating his clothing and falling down into his boot. Eizenhower was not arrested. The affray grew out of an old difficulty.
