ST. KITTS. , NOV. 3. -  A meeting took place this morning, between George Forbes, Esq. barrister, and John Amory, Esq. when the former received the first  shot of his adversary in his  head, and was dead in an instant.  Mr. Forbes was only 24 years of age, and Mr. Amory has very recently completed his 21st year.  Mutual attention to a young lady on the island led to the cause of this unhappy meeting.
