May 28. Xrlanchah occurrence .'Mr. Thomas P. Mof - fett, of this place, was killed oa Friday morning last, in a duel fought between himself and Mr. Thomas Wooldridife.of Abbeville, S. Carolina. The dispute which gave rise to this rencounter1 was of long standing. It took place in Litchfield, Con. in the latter part of tbe year, 1816. A challenge passed there from Mr. Moffett, and was accented by Mr. Wooldridsre. The time and tlace of their meeting; wore appointed, on condition that they should be changed, if the foriner gentleman could not attend, by giving notice of it upon bis arrival in Georgia. He could not attend, and notihed Mr. wool - dridge accordingly. This notice was never re ceived, and of course no reply was made to Mr. .Ylofiett. Here Mr. Mofiett intended letting the matter sleep, had henot been informed that Mr. WooldnJg had thrown out reflection upon his character a a brave man. Upon hearing litis be determined to call upon Mr. Wooldridge. He did so, and the latter gentleman did not hesitate to assert, that the report of hi having cast out reflections of that kind was entirely false. On this point Mr. Mr - flett was contented, but had never received any satisfaction for the original insult. The other party conceiving that he had not injured Mr. Moffeit seriously did not offer an apology, Tharday morning the 21st instant was appointed as th time of meeting, and opposite Campbelltou, near Augusta, tbe place for deciding this dispute. The parties were both in Augusta on Wednesday evening oo account of the laudable exertions of two young gentlemen to effect a reconciliation, the duel was postpoued until Friday morning. In tbe mean time a court of honor was instituted, in order to settle the matter if possible, witliout going to the field. Each party reserved to himself the right of dis senting from the award of the court if he thought proper The court met, and had tho whole affair laid before them, made up their award and sent a copy to each party upon reading it over, Mr. Moffatt immediately perceived that he could not submit to it without disgrace. The next morning, these young gentlemen met at the time and phice appoiuted j thry fired at the distance of 15 paces Moffett fell The ball penetrated his bead about an inch front his right eye. His antagonist received a severe wound in bis arm, which served as an sris to his body. This is the dreadful result ofthe unfortunate contest, which nrougnt a young man to an untimely tomb, and deprived society of one of it most promising aiemuers.
