WELLINGTON, September 28,

A serious shooting affray took place at Wadestown yesterday afternoon. It appears that a difference exists between Thomas Boyles Gambull and J. A. Stuart Morton, two residents, as to the right of the latter to drive cattle along a road in the district. Yesterday J. A. Smith, a nephew of Morton, was driving cattle along this road, when Gambull stopped him, and, after a short argument, shot one cow with a double-barrelled gun. On Smith remonstrating, Gambull shot him in the right leg, just above the knee. Gambull was arrested, and Smith taken to the hospital. Gambull asserts that the shooting was accidental. His story is that Smith attempted to assault him with a piece of wood ; that a struggle ensued; that Smith caught hold of the barrels of the gun, and in attempting to wrench it from the accused’s grasp it went off. Gambull, who is an elderly man, has been remanded for a week. Smith is twenty-one years of age, and is progressing favorably.
