A Sad Affair. -- A difficulty of some sort arose yesterday afternoon between a son of Mr. Isaac Maxwell, our city Marshall, and Mr. Dwynn, who lives in the Capital. Young Maxwell is a clerk in the post office, and is an excellent young man, and Mr. Dwynn, as far as we have heard, was a possible good citizen. Last night about 11, young Dwynn called at the house of Marshall Maxwell, it is supposed for young Maxwell. Marshall Maxwell was in bed, but went out and was immediately shot, one ball entering just above the navel, and one ball in the right shoulder. The pistol was so close to him, that his clothes were burnt. Both of the Dwynns are in prison. Marshal Maxwell is universally popular in Montgomery, and is one of our most upright citizens. He is in a most critical condition, but the whole city hopes that his life may be spared.

Funeral of Mr. Maxwell. -- The large concourse of citizens who assembled in the First Baptist Church on yesterday, to witness the funeral services of the late City Marshall, and subsequently accompanied the remains to the grave, was an impressive recognition of the greatest esteem felt for him by the people of Montgomery and surrounding country. He commenced life in poverty and with but few friends; but by untiring energy and scrupulous honesty in all business and public transactions, he gradually accumulated a competency, and at the same time obtained the confidence and respect of the entire community. The circumstances of his sudden death were indeed lamentable. But his family have the satisfaction to know that he was blameless in the affair throughout, and that his deathbed was attended with the sincere sorrow of all who knew him when in public or private station. Mr. Maxwell was exceedingly charitable in his disposition, and many a poor person in the city profited by his generosity. The Society of Masons participated in the funeral ceremonies, and imparted additional interest to the occasion. Peace to his ashes, and green be the turf that grows over his grave.

Death of Mrs. W. L. Chandler. -- The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Willis L. Chandler were grieved yesterday by the announcement of the death of Mrs. Chandler which occurred at five o'clock Friday morning, the 14th inst. at their rooms at the Exchange Hotel. The deceased lady had never enjoyed perfect health, but her unexpected demise was a great shock not only to the husband and family, but to all their friends. About ten days ago she was so indisposed as to take to her bed but revived and was apparently so much improved on Wednesday and Thursday, that fond hopes were entertained of her speedy recovery. During Thursday night however, she became worse, and when her physician was summoned about an hour before the end, she was wrapt in sleep. When she awoke an examination revealed that she was rapidly sinking, and at 5 o'clock breathed her last.
