DUEL IN PARIS. The Paris correspondent of the Tunes writes on Sunday Early this morning there was a duel with swords in the Bois de Boulogne. One of the parties was Mr. Joseph Casey, a Fenian, who was arrested, with Colonel Richard Burke, in 18G7, and confined within Clerkenwell Prison, the explosion there being designed to free them. He came to France im- mediately on his release, and served in the Foreign Legion during the Franco-Prussian war. The other combatant was a Captain Scully, an Irish-American, who fought in the War of Secession and also in Mexico. He was suspected of being an informer; hence the duel. After several passes Captain Scully's sword broke, and Casey wounded him in the neck, but not seriously. A reconciliation was effected, and the parties afterwards breakfasted together.
