Mir' Editor-A mnost melancholy ocentrence.
tradlspired in this place, on thle evening of tiW
6th Inst.. We allude to an affray between two
of the student, -Sainuel Miller and Peter K.
Thoupson, which iestilted in tihe death of the
latter. To prevent misconception. and correct
ekaggerated reports, w e send yon a statement
ofthe principal Ihets in the case.
The fatal aiTair ocettred in the hall of the
Philomathean Society. The arternoon of Fri
day is always devota!. by the literary societies
Oftis Institution, to the peculiar exercises up.
propriate to them. At the meeting on last Fri.
day. Mr- .Miller. it seems, took offence at- the
conduct-of Mr. Thompson. during the delib
erations ofthe evening. Immediately alter the
adjourment of tih society some angry words
were passed, which resulted in a contest, and
the eveit was. the death -if Mlr. Thompson. It
was found to have been occasioned by two stahls
inficted, one on the left side, near time region
of the heart, anmd the other abomut time abdomen.
Ar. Thompson expired it. filheen or twenty
minutes afler a separation was 4ifected. Th
wounds were inflicted with a pocket knife,
with a blade about three and a half inches in
length. - The whole affair occupied a period.
not, perhaps exceed ing half a minute. There
was no passionate excitement amongst any oth
er individuals: nor were there any other per
sons engaged in the fray, but those mentioned
Mr. Miller has been taken into cistody, and
the matter is under process off judicial investi
gation. which forbids that any thing should be
said which might be prejudicial to either of the
parties. We hope. therefore, that the public
will simpend theit opinion respecting the whole
trauisaction till all the evidence is brought for
ward in open Court.
