From the Richmond Whig, 8/30/1864, p. 2, c. 5

THE DUEL. - In the case of Messrs. Elmore and Pollard, charged with being concerned in the late duel, the County Court yesterday morning decided that Dr. Peticolas "was bound to testify," he having declined to do so on the previous day, on the ground that his evidence might implicate himself.

Dr. P. still respectfully declining to testify, the court issued a warrant for his commitment. Thereupon Dr. P. was carried before Judge Meredith on a habeas corpus, and the Judge bailed him in $1,000 to appear this morning at 11 o'clock, when the case will be argued at length.

The County Court then adjourned the case of Messrs. Pollard and Elmore till Saturday next.
