Affray at Warsaw

By the steamboat Superior, which arrived here yesterday from Louisville, we learn that an affray took place at Warsaw, Ky., on Tuesday last, between a number of men engaged in a political dispute.  Two brothers named J. and T. Leonard became "Southernly" obnoxious and boisterous; two blacksmiths named Isaac Clemmens and J. W. Oliver, upheld the Union cause.

In the melee which followed the debate, one of the Leonards was dangerously wounded.   The disturbance occasioned so much excitement in the town that it was deemed advisable yesterday to send two companies of Colonel Whittlesey's regiment (90th Ohio) to the town.  They left on the Superior yesterday.
