C. militia,) wm seriously, perhaps fatally, wounded by Mr. Gilbert Vanderwrrkm The aflhtr created intense excitement, the psrtiea being well known la thtscltyaad Georgetown?Mr. Hill as a wholesale paper dealer, and Mr. Vsaderwerken as one of the proprietors of the Union line of omnibuses The affray occurred In Ikt wmnon Under the residence "(Mr Vanderwerken on Bridge street, north tide, a few doors wwt of tk? corner of Washington street. adjoining tlM residence of Mayor Addlaon. It )a well known to the friends of the parties that there had been a l*nd of several y*ars standing between them, which originated In a question of proprietorship of the verr premises where the shooting occurred. When Mr. Vanderwerken moved there some years dace it was to occupy the upper poriton of the hooss as a tenant of Mr. Hill's who bsd leased the property from the owner, Mr. Clsgett Mr. Hill retained the lower (street) floor as a paper wareroom Mr Vanderwerken claims to have subsequently leased the property from the owner, and in consequence of these rlvel claim*? rr>i ? aimrr wci ?ru h?tiux poeeewion 01 ine upper floor* and Mr. Hill of the lower one?many nopleasant altercation* occurred, very nearly lead log oo one occasion, a boat two rears si nee, to such a collision as occurred yesterday. It seems th-it Mr Hill went down to the wareroom yeaterdav afternoon, and discovered that a partition wblch he had put np In the rear of the premises had been removed. He saw a girl of Mr. Vanderwerken's ttere, and asked her who removed it, 1 and she said Mr. Vanderwerken She went np stairs and told Mr. V that Mr. Hill was below, when be called his son Chsrles to bring htm a Jiistol, and as soon as be got It he went below, ollowed or preceded by his son, who also, It seems, had a loaded pistol Both these pistols were revolvers, and Mr Hill was also srmed with a revolver. The firing commenced almost Immediately. Mr G. Vanderwerken seem* to have fired four rounds and Mr. Hill one or two, It Is not certain wblch. The younger Vanderwerken, it la believed, did not lire at all Neither of tbe Vanderwerken'a was Injured. Mr. Gilbert Vsnderwerkt >'* first or second shot struck Mr. Hill on tberlgbt bsnd, grazing the knuckles, the shot evidently being aimed at his body; tbe neat struck him la tbe groin, and meetlnir some I obstruction, came out juat above where It entered; the next ?hot entered the groin higher up, aid went through the body, coming out just above the hip. This wound Is a dangeroa* one,' as the ball seems to hire token a curved course and gone through the abdominal cavity. If It curved outwardly there la not much danger, bat if inwardly It may have ruptured the intestines, and may reaalt fatally Mr. Hill was eonveyed In a carriage to bis residence on Bridge at., between Potomac and High, where Doctors Snyder and Mag ruder were soon in stteodAnce, doing everything possible for his comfort and safety He baa a wife and a large family, who are thrown into the deepest distress by this unfortunate affair.

Four barrels of the elder Vanderwerken's were found to be diachargcd, two barrels cf Mr. Hill's, and none of tbe you new Vanderwerken'a. When arrested, tbe elder Var-derwerken tisd tbe loaded pistol on bis person, bis son having tbat which bad been fired. Mr Hill states, In bis affidavit, tbat Gilbert Vanderwerken llred first; wblle Charles Vanderwerken testifies tbst be (Charles) came down statrs before bis father, ana Mr. Hill fired at blm; and of tho next shot he doe* not know who fired It. Mr Hill seemed to be doing well when last Iheft'd from this morning Excitement was hlghln Georgetown last night, and Mr. Vanderwerken was re-arrested and taken to tbe guardhouse In that city, whsre he Is still confined.

Getting amongst the tall grass in the rear of the telegraph office, the ditrkey fell heavily. His pursuer wu now sure of hts prey, but just at the critical moment be too was tripped, and before be oould recover himself had the mortification to see his prisoner rise, look doubtfully over the bank (wblch Is there held up by a perpendicular wall) to the tow-path, 15 or JO feet below, sod then jump <'own Up leaped ibe patrolman, and,with some misgivings, shut bis eyes, ssid bis?prayers, and followed. He "lit" safe, and immediately started In pursuit of hi* prisoner, who had a considerable start, heeding up tbe canal. At this time Sergeant Newman saw tbe race, snd with one or two of his men started at a go- d pace to head Roes off In the vicinity of Ritter's (warehouse, above tbe market, the aarkey mysteriously disappeared, and his pursuers were tLrown off tbe track.
