"How are the mighty fallen" - but they rise again.

On Thursday, the 30th inst. a duel was fought in Oswego, between Gen. Campbell and Gen. M'Donald, in an affair that touched their honor. the parties fought with rifles at the distance of fifteen rods. Gen. Campbell was shot though the heart (of his pantaloons) and instantly fell to the ground. After some time he found himself able to stand, when lo! and horrible to relate! not a drop of blood was shed. He stood in need of no other surgeon than a tailor.
