Duel. – A duel was fought on Monday afternoon last between a young doctor from Virginia and a Confederate officer from North Carolina. It took place on Dill’s farm, near the spot where Messrs. Elmore and Daniel fought a couple of weeks since, and at the second fire both were wounded – the doctor slightly in one of his hands; the other, in his leg.
