Affray At Shullsburg-- On Sunday, E.A. Andrews and John Slevin had some hard words, and Andrews knocked Slevin down, Morris Ducey then made an attack upon Andrews; the latter drew a butcher-knife and stabbed Ducey in the side. Shortly afterwards, John, a brother of M. Ducey, made his appearance on the street, threatening to avenge his brother. Mr. Andrews was pointed out as the person who had done the deed. Although the citizens interposed, the parlies got together, and Ducey received six gashes from the knife of Andrews, three of them penetrating the chest and bowels. John can live but a short time, the recovery of Morris is doubtful. Mr. Andrews has given bonds for his appearance at the next circuit court. It is a melancholy affair. Morris Ducey is a widower, with a family of six children. John, who cannot survive, leaves a wife and two children.-- Pick and Gad.
