FATAL DUEL.
 
    Letters from Paris, of the 6th inst, mention a fatal duel that took place
on Mont Martre, between Captain PELLEW, of the First Regiment of Life Guards,
and Captain Theodore WALSH, of the same Regiment.
 
    At the first fire Captain PELLEW was shot through the temple, and expired
without a groan.
 
    Mr. FRENCH was second to Captain WALSH; we have not heard the name  of
Captain PELLEW's  friend. The cause of this melancholy affair is the elopement
of Mrs. WALSH, some short time ago with Captain PELLEW, and who was with him at
Paris, to which place the injured husband followed them.
 
    Captain PELLEW was a near relation of Lord EXMOUTH. He was killed on the
spot without having fired. The body, for a considerable time, was refused
admission at the hotel where he was lodged.
