A difficulty occurred at a party given by Mr. Brooker, in Benton County, Miss., on Monday last, between Jesse Smith, of Saulsbury, Tenn., and William Walker, in which the latter was stabbed in the abdomen, from the effects of which he soon thereafter died. Smith pinned a cotton cloth to the coat of Walker, which offended Walker, and was the cause of the difficulty. Smith was arrested, and after a trial before W. H. Redfearn, Esq., was sent to jail.
