MISCELLANEOUS. Fighting- Intelligence. --There is a capital story going the round here which I believe, has not yet found its way into print, of how The 0'Donoghue, of the Glens, has challenged Mr. Walter, of The Times, on account of some insulting language used towards him in the "leading journal," in connexion with the late miserable effort to get up a Repeal agitation in Dublin. It seems that The O'Donoghue dispatched a friend to London to challenge Mr. Walter. The latter was, at the time, at Bearwood, his seat in Berkshire, and thither the Irish gentleman followed him, and delivered his warlike message. The response of Mr. Walter was at once characteristic and proper. He informed the Irish gentleman that he was a magistrate --that there was a police- station in the village, and that if he did not make himself scarce in an incredibly short period he would give him in charge for aiding and abetting in a proposed breach of the peace. The Irish gentleman took the hint, and returned ...
