From Colusa, April 19 -- A shooting affray occurred this morning at the Postoffice building, in this place [Colusa], between Isaac CLEGHAM and A.B. HAWKINS. Seven shots were fired, one of which wounded CLEGHAM slightly in the left shoulder. There were several hair-breadth escapes from random shots. The parties are brothers-in-law, and the difficulty arose about sheep HAWKINS had on shares. HAWKINS is under arrest, and CLEGHAM in charge of physicians, doing well.
