Writ of Habeas corpus in a Dwelling case. --In the case of Dr. A. E Peticolas, upon whose refusal to testify before the county justices, with reference to a duel alleged to have been fought between Mr. E. C. Elmore and Mr. John M. Daniel, he was ordered to be committed to prison for contempt of court, but subsequently was bailed under a writ of habeas corpus, issued by Judge Meredith returnable before him yesterday morning. Mr. P. H. Aylett, counsel for Dr. Peticolas, made an argument of upwards of three hours length in favor of releasing his client from any obligation to testify.--At its conclusion, Judge Meredith, adjourned his court till this morning, when General Marshall will resume for the defence; after which, Mr. John B. Young, the Commonwealth's prosecutor in the County Court, will close the argument, and the case will then be left with the Judge for his decision.
Duel. --A duel was fought on Monday afternoon last, between a young doctor from Virginia and a Confederate officer from North Carolina. It took place on Dill's farm, near the spot where Messrs. Elmore and Daniel fought a couple of weeks since, and at the second fire both were wounded — the doctor slightly in one of his hands; the other, in his leg.
