Iowa Hill, Nov. 20th . A stabbing affair took place here this morning, in which a man named Casey was mortally wounded. A dispute arose between Casey and another man, named Dockray, about some money, when Dockray drew a knife and stabbed Casey three times. The wounded man is not expected to recover. Dockray was arrested and examined before a Justice of the Peace, and bound over to stand his trial for assault with a deadly weapon. The general opinion seems to be that he was justifiable in the act, having been struck several times before be attempted to use his knife.
