'Almost an Affray. A meeting took place in Chartrea street yesterday, between two per sons, which might have resulted in something serious had it not been for the presence of a third party. It appears that on Thursday Mr. Claude Zamory, of Chartres street, received a written challenge from a person named Auguste Rideau they having previously had a quar rel which he refused to accept. Yesterday about 12 o'clock, while Mr. Zamory was walk ing along Chartrea street, in company with Mr, F. H. Petitpain, he felt some one tap him on shoulder, and on turning round he observed Kideau with his right hand in his coat pocket. Apprehending an attack, he drew a small dirk to defend himself, whereupon R. drew a. pistol from his pocket and was in the act of cocking it, when ne was seized by P. and the pistol wrested from his grasp. He was immediately taken before Recorder Genoi.s and held to bail in the sum of $1000. for his appearance at the Criminal Court.
