Affray at Canyon City. We have
received a letter from Canyon Cily
dated tbe 24th inbt., which says that
on the 23d inet. two men named John
Grubb and C. Harr. Smith hud a dis
pute and quarrel tbero.in wnich words,
blowB and finully piutola wore need by
both parties, that tbey then clinched,
and that Grubb was shot in tbo groin
while in the &ot of gouging out Smith's
cyo. Grubb died in about an hour
We would remark that wo prceumo
the abovo is correct, but that tbe
loiter from which we get tho inf'orraa
tiort Is- without a signature, being
dated the 24th inst., the morning on
which the stage probably left, the
writermay have inadvertently omittod
his signature. In this connection let

very anxious to get hold of every
npecies of lntolligonco as soon as pos
