duel. Ini the coirseaofahe evideuce otneofthe
witlnes~ws testified that the passage of the
act nider which the prisoier was indicted,
in 1818, duels have been of almtost daily
Occurrence, moany of them fatal. In the
year 182 alone, twrnt4-one persons were
killed in duel. in that city and environs.
There was besides nimberless cases, the
same year. in which the paurties escaped
unhurt or with wounds only. It was no
torious that our most distinguished citi
zen, and even magistrates, had from time
to time been.engaged in duels, and the law
had rcmainil a a dead liettr. This was
the first prosecution under that law; and
the followi g is the ie,timaony iu the case:
Mr. Pronte, the deceiasedl, sent Mr.
Throuet ;a insuthing challenge, which was
ae't-pted. The terms oh the combat were
arrange-d by seconds. The paties were

regard to the manufacture which may be
interesting to our readers. Our statemeng
iay derive ad.liional interest firom the
fact, that some of our merchants have,
during the present season, had he lead of
Alisouri coined at the St Lms Mint. un
der the nintagement of Air Siine, and have
used it as an eastern retittance. finding it
to answer a better purpose thain either
eastern exchange, bank hills, or gold and
''he folloving are among the details of
the manufacturine opuerationts:
Tie shot tower is oeu, hundred and fifty
feet in height; the lead is drawn up from
the river bank by horse power, in the top,
and then melted. It is taken out in la
dIes and'run through a single row orsmall
holes in a horizontal line. which forms it
into drops, and cools, before it strikes the
water contained in a luge cistern below.
It is then ladled out, put in a large sheet
iron pan. atid (ried over a hot fire when
thoroughly dried, it is lut into what is cal
led a polishing keg; a small quantity of
black lead is adderi, which by turning
somu two or three hundre-d times gives it a
bright,glossy appearance. It is then screen
ed on tables and sizei-t. The- factory has
been in see'-ssful ope ratin since the tiod
lie of April lasut, dujie n ahich litte there
has been mannfartred upwards of four
hundlred thousand pounds of shot. ma
