One of the many champions of ladies, met with what might have been & very serious accident last evening. The parties to the affair were Joshua Dougherty, aScotchmau, aud William Bagley, a character known to the police. From the facts that can be ascertained of the affair it appears that about 10.15 o'clock Bayley met Dougherty In front of the latter's boarding house, No. 411 West Second street, and calling him aside insulted two young lady a- quain tances of Dougherty's. Mr. Dougberty very properly resented the insult, upon which Bagley drew a knife and attempted to cut the ladies'champion. He did not succeed in doing so, as Dougherty was too much for him. They then sepa rated, but about an hour afterward, as Dougherty was about to enter his boarding house, he was met by Bagley and before he was aware of his adversary's intention he wa# stabbed in the right jaw bone The knife blade was broken off and remaiued in the jaw. Dougherty informed Officer An drew Moore of the occurrence, who took the iujured man iu charge aud escorted him to Dr. Carrow, Sixth and French streets, who removed the broken blade and dressed the wound. The iujured man is doing all right. 3. il 6; To Be Kept Open.

THE AN PLENTY OF SOLID BATTING. The Harrisburg Rickers Defeated by a Score of 15 to 6—Yesterday's H Contests—Notes. Ball Nothing could give more satisfaction to the 600 spectators yesterday than to see the line style in which the Quickstep laid the Harrisburg club out. The home Warn had on their batting clothes again aud they ham mered both pitchers most unmercifully. At the outset Leary was putln the pitcher's box. On the second ball pitched Klenzel lifted it for three bags. Benners not to be outdone drove another for the same number of bags, Leary looked mad and this Increased when Hoover and Albert got iu singles and Fox for three bases. Manager Meyers now interfered and Burns was piaced in the box with the distinct understanding t.hut he was to remain there. The side retired in short order. The Harrisburg then took their turn aud were put out before ten balls had been pitched and in a row. In the second inning neither side scored. The Harrltbuig got their first run on the third Inning through the aid of an error of Klenzel and hit of Shetzline. The home club were unable to hit Burns for the second and third inning, but lit on to him in the fourth and kept it up until the sixth inning, scoring niue runs off him. Here Meyere in terfered again and wanted Burns to leave the box; this he absolutely refused todoand in consequence he was expelled on the ground and the Harrisburg continued the game with eight men; as luck would have It, but one ball was knocked out into right field. Leary was urought in again and the home club did not score on him until the ninth innings when two runs and three hits wero made. Everyone did good hitting, Little Albert leading with five hits aud eight bases. Klenzel and Benners each bad a brace of triples. Fox, Albert and Snyder also got lu triples. The Harrisburg were unable to se cure but six hits and ten bases off tue boy pitcher of the Quickstep; of these Shetz Ilne got two, Casey a three-bagger and Leary and McCloskey doubles. The visitors outflelded the home team, and the playing of Cline at second base was magnificent aud brilliant. Reccius at left at left caught two good flies and made a splendid throw to sec ond. Hoover at second made some good stops and seems at home in his position. Fox played a good third, and as it is an old story about Snyder, it is hardly necessary to say he played first good, for everybody knows it. G us Albert covered short splen didly. The battery as usual worked ad mirably, neither a wild pitch or a passed bull being credited against either of them. That they are a valuable acquisition to the club every one Is convinced. They field and bat first-class and as yet the heaviest batters in the Inter-State have been unable to hit them. The score follows: QUICK ST UP. AB. R. IB. TB. PO. ▲.

Van da Li a, August 28.—The duel be tween Jacob Roseubrook and Lewis Phillips, at Meashogue* Mill, 40 miles from Vandalia, was fought. last night without challenge aud almost without provocation. The passion of the duelists had been In flamed to the highest pitch by a long stand ing rivalry for the hand of a young girl who is believed to be a cousin of Rosenbrook. Phillips, in additioi to this, resented what he regarded as an insult from his rival, aud for several days each of the two threatened to kill the other on sight. The young girl, to whom both strongly attached, fruitlessly tried every means to restore peace between the suitors. Last night they were accompanied by friends and met near Meashogues Mill, in Bowling Green Township. Four shots were fired in such rapid succession that it was impos sible to tell who fired first. Roseubrok fell, mortally wouuded, but his self-cocking volver, a 32 calibre weapon, was afterward used with fatal effect upon his rival. As he lay bleeding to death Irom a mortal wound he fired a fifth shot and Phillips fell. THE SECOND'» STORY. men men were Roeenbrork's recoud in the dreadful tragedy was Mark Swunk, while Phillips brought to the field John W omis had ren. The sec services to perform until the duel was over, and the fatal event* on the field happened with bewildering rapidity. Both agreed that there was no time for pre liminaries before the first shots were fired. The two men drew their weapons and began firing at a distance of about 10 paces, and the seconds were obliged to look to their own safety. Phillips' second shot struck Rosenbrook in the mouth and traveled upward, penetrating the brain. As he fell his weapon exploded, the bullet striking his antagonist in the left side, just below the filth rib, ranging upward, and he fell within five feet oi Mr. Rosenbrook. Both duelists were young men, Phillips being about 22 years oi age, and a school teacher. Neither of the seconds have yet been arrested. THE LADT IN THE CASE. The inuocent cause of the tragedy if crazed with grief over the tragic affair, parties to the affray are highly respected in the community, aud while their rivalry was much commented upon, no one anticipated bq bloody an ending to it. The trouble was that the young lady seemed to be unable to decide as to which she prefeired, receiving the attentions of both young men with im partiality. The Coroner has been summoned from St. Louis- to bold an inquest over the remains of Rosenbrook. It is thought that Phillips cannot survive the night, as he has inward hemorrhage. BowliugGreen, where the fatal duel was fought; is almost In the same county in which East St. Louis and its Blood Island, the most noted dueling ground in the coun try, is situated. It was here that the fatal duels of Colonel Benton and District-Attor ney Alexander were fought. All the CECIL REPUBLICANS. County Tloket Nominated-Mr. Cress well Makes a Speech.
