Pistols and Knives for Two

“Information has reached us of an unfortunate affray, at the flats of Brush Creek, by parties living in Union township, on Monday last, by which one was stabbed in the face, and another was shot in the leg. Some persons from Lombardsville vicinity had been to town, and on the way home, it is said, the seeds of an old feud cropped out, developing into a general altercation, in which the Lombardville blacksmith received a stab in the forehead, and Mr. Rudity received a ball from a pistol, fired by one of the crowd, in his leg. The difficulty is very seriously regretted by all the parties concerned. No arrests had been made at last reports.”1
