[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE NEWS,]
COLUMBIA, Tuesday Night, September 24.
Upon the commitment of the coroner, Captain
Geo. E. Topper is still confined In jail tor killing
Captain Jno. D. Caldwell, of this oily, last
Saturday. It ls rumored that efforts wilt be
at once made to effect his release by an applL
cation for a writ of habeas corpus. His
brother from Charleston, and others of bis
friends, have arrived in the city. The Hon.
C. W. Montgomery, one of the parties engaged
in the fight, who was yesterday released from
confinement, by bis own option shares the
lafeflf the cell with Topper. Captain Tapper's
statement of the facts of the affray differs wide?
ly from that which has hitherto been given. The
reporter of THE NEWS, In an interview with
the prisoner this evening, found him in as
cheerful a state of mind as the circumstances
permit. He occupies the roomy prison cell in
the jail in which the alleged Ku Klux of Union
were confined. Many people have visited him
during the day. A cot, bench and two chairs
make np the furniture of the room. Tupper
expresses much grief at the fatal result of the
rencontre, but claims that the trial will show
that be acted in self-defence. The following
lathe verbatim statement made to your re?
porter this evening by Captain Tupper, which
la confirmed by C. W. Montgomery, who waa
present during the Interview In the presence
of one other person. He sajB :
Colonel Charles W. Montgomery, bis Irlend
of long acquaintance In Charleston, where
~tney both formerly resided, called upon him
at bis residence on the night prior to the pub?
lication of his (Montgomery's) card In the
Daily Phoenix, which reflected severely upon
Judge Sam!. W. Melton, and requested that
Tupper should accompany him to the Phoenix
office, and also that he Bhould read the card
which he proposed to publish, and which was
to appear the next morning. Tapper dressed
himself immediately and went with Mont?
gomery to the Phoenix office. On the way
there Montgomery explained to bim the arti?
cle that bad appeared lo the Beaufort Republi?
can, giving the langnage of Judge Melton In a
recent speech at that place reflecting upon
Montgomery. Upon arriving at the Phoenix
office, Montgomery showed the card to Tup?
per, and the'latter says he endorsed his
course, and the card appeared the next morn?
ing in the Phoenix. Daring the day ot the
publication of Colonel Montgomery's card,
Tapper states that be was informed by seve?
ral gentlemen that Captain John D. Caldwell
bad stated that be had telegraphed to several
points for Judge Melton to return to Columbia
immediately and meet Colonel Montgomery;
also that Colonel Montgomery had asked Tup?
per to serve him as his friend In the matter,
and he (Tnpper) had agreed to do so. At about
one o'clock on Saturday afternoon, Colonel
Montgomery came to Topper's office and
stated that Jadge Melton was on Main street
with his friend, Captain Caldwell, and asked
him (Tapper) if be (Montgomery) had not
better show himself on the same street and
give Judge Melton an opportunity to approach
him if he should have any desire to do so.
The, prisoner states that he acquiesced, and at
abbat two o'clock joined Montgomery, and
walked down .Richardson street, the main
street In the city, on the west side, lor several
squares, as lax as Muller's, at the corner of
Lady street, and there met Mr. James Bren?
nan, editor of the Southern Celt, and secre?
tary and treasurer ol the State Central Com?
mittee Of tbe Bolling wing of the Republican
party, where ? conversation was engaged In
tor about hali an hour, when Brennan pro?
posed that the party should walk to Pol?
lock's Saloon for refreshments, which they did.
There the party partook of beer. When they
cami*out of the saloon on Richardson street
again, Tapper states that he saw Captain
Caldwell and Judge Melton on the opposite
side of the street In front ol George Sy m mer's
grocery store, and he states that he observed
they recognized Montgomery and him (Tnp?
per.) The opposite parly then walked np the
street slowly, and when that party had reach?
ed the corner by Pelxotto's atore, (the south?
east corner of Richardson and Washington
streets,) Tapper asked Montgomery to walk
with him np the street, on the opposite side?
-In the same direction. Montgomery said
"yes," and they walked np the street slowly for
the purpose of giving Judge Melton an oppor?
tunity to assail Montgomery, If he chose to do
to. When Jadge Melton and Captain Cald?
well arrived at the Palmetto tree which stands
on the opposite corner from Pelxotto's store,
they crossed Richard sou street, and when they
reached the opposite side, the two parties
were bat fifteen or twenty feet apart, both
walking np Richardson street, Tapper and
Montgomery walking behind Melton and
Caldwell, ' at a distance of about twen?
ty feet When they had reached
tbe club-room door, about a square and a halt
lrom the corner mentioned, Melton and Cald?
well stopped, and as Montgomery and Tupper
passed them slowly, walking along, the other
party faced outwards, when, Tupper slates,
that fie saluted both gentlemen with the
words, "Gentlemen, good-day," the relations
between him (Tnpper) and both Caldwell and
Mellon being of a friendly character. Colonel
Montgomery at this time simply bowed
to Captain Caldwell. Tnpper states that Mont?
gomery and himself then continued on np
BJcnardson street, stopping at the Columbia
Hotel about an hoar and discussing the mat?
ter. He and Montgomery both concluded and
agreed that Judge Melton did not Intend to
assault him. Montgomery believing the same
to be clearly indicated by the gentleman ag?
grieved, (Melton,) they concluded that Judge
Melton would address a communication to
Colonel Montgomery requesting a meet?
ing In Angosta, Georgia, or Charlotte, North
Carolina, and at the time, and as an evi?
dence of the fact Tupper states that be had
made arrangements to obtain the same duel?
ling pistols that were selected for the Davega
and Johnston affair. At tbe Columbia Hotel
Colonel Montgomery Invited bim (Tupper) to
dine at Pollock's, and the latter told Mont?
gomery that he had told bis family that he
would probably not be at borne to dinner, as
he had an important engagement Tapper
and Montgomery thea walked down to the'
Pollock Houe, where dinner was immediately
ordered. They met there Mr. Theo. Stark, an
old citizen and former mayor of tbe city, with j
whom a short conversation was held. Dinner
teing announced, Colonel Montgomery and
Tapper went Into the dining room. Colonel
Montgomery requested Tapper to sit at the
bead of the table, and tbe latter did so.
[NOTE.-The R3ad of the table laces the door
entering from the bar. A side door on the,
lett of the table leads out o? the dining hall
between the head of the table and the en?
trance.] Just at this moment Messrs. F. H.
Elmore, Fielding and Lawrence Taylor came
in. Colonel Montgomery asked them to dine.
They declined, saying they bad ordered din?
ner. Colonel Montgomery then asked them to
drink, and beer was ordered for five persons.
The serrant entered, and, at this aiomer.t,
Tupper states he saw Captain Caldwell look?
ing In at the door of entrance to the dining
hall, and then close the same. He did not
think lt at all strange, supposing he was look?
ing for some friend. Half a minute had not
elapsed alter this, when Judge Melton came
Into the room followed by Captain Caldwell
and Major Morgan; and, before Colonel Mont?
gomery had time to know of their approach,
he (Montgomery,) while sitting In his chair
cutting a piece of meat, was violently assault?
ed by Judge Melton, several severe blows
being inflicted upon his iaoe, when Melton
fell on him with his Immense weight, causing
Colonel Montgomery to reel from bis chair on
the floor, Judge Melton upon him, continuing
his blows In rapid succession. The "prisoner
states further that before he conld offer any
assistance to his friend, Montgomery, be
(Tupper) had received a severe blow in his
right eye, Inflicted with the fist of Captain
Caldwell, the latter having a pistol In
bis right hand at the time, and remarking, as
he struck hin::, (Tupper,) "By O-d, I am
here." To which Tupper stales that here,
plied, "So am I !" returning the blow, which
staggered Captain Caldwell, when Major Mor?
gan struck bim (Topper) a heavy blow over
the leit of the forehead, and then both Cald?
well and Morgan rushed upon bim very ex?
citedly, grappling with him (Tupper) endeav?
oring to get him to the ground. Tupper avers
that their treatment was very violent, forcing
him down more than once, and pressing him
to the wall, giving him no quarter at all.
Tupper states further, that his opinion 1B that
he would have been killed if Providence had
not come to his aid.
This is Captain Tapper's statement, as taken
down from his Hps In the prison. During the
time of this fight, as stated by him, Melton
and Montgomery were-flghting on tbe floor,
ahd'contlnued to fight until separated, alter
Caldwell had been killed. The third shoe,
which passed out of the side door, above de?
scribed, struck In the alley-way, and la pre?
sumed to have been fired at Melton. .
The condition of Major Morgan, who was
shot in the melee, Is not so favorable as here?
tofore reported. The elly ls quiet. General
M. C. Butler has been retained as counsel for
Captain Tupper. PICKET.

were taken there, lt ls said, under pretence of
having been engaged as laborers on a new
railroad, and that their exoenseB and services
are all paid out ot an electioneering fund. The

GREELEY IN THE SOUTH.
HTS RECBP1ION AND SPEECH: AT
Bonfires and Illnmlnation?-The Libe?
ral Standard-Bearer a Visitor at the
LOUISVILLE, September 22.
Mr. Greeley arrived at 8.40 last night. He
was met by a large crowd of citizens, and es?
corted by tbe committee to the exposition.
His passage through the crowd was accom?
plished with difficulty. Judge M. F. Bullock
delivered an address of welcome on behalf of
the exposition, and Mr. Greeley responded In
a short speech. He spoke of the previous de?
votion of tbe South to agriculture, and the
present growth of manufacturing Interests
here. His speech was frequently Interrupted
by applause. He closed his remarks with an
eulogy on Henry Clay.
Mr. Greeley and his party were then con?
ducted through the crowd to carriages, and
proceeded to the GalL House, where the
srreets were Ailed with people awaiting his
arrival. Bonfires were built in the streets,
and a number of buildings were decorated
and some of them illuminated. A platform
bad been erected at ihe southeast corner of
the Galt House, and a few minutes after his
arrival Mr. Greeley appeared on the platform,
and was Introduced to the assemblage by
Henry Watterson, of the Courier-Journal,
when he spoke at great length.
MR. GREELEY'S SPEECH.
Citizens of Louisville, Blanding on this soil
of Kentucky, I ask you, who are my associates
In tbe great Liberal movement ol the day, io
bear testimony with me to certain tra hs.
First, ls it not true that we desire a govern?
ment of Just and equal laws, which shall ex?
tend equal favor and equal protection to every
American citizen* [Appluuse, and cries of
"Thai's so."] Is lt not true that while we de?
mand the repeal of all dlsiranchisemeot, of
all proscription of all Americans because
of ihe part they bore in our late strug?
gle, that, we desire that no mac shall
be disfranchised, that no man shall be pro?
scribed, but that every man shall stand on
an equal platlorm with ourselves ? Is not that
a fact ? [Cries of "Yes, that's so."] Is lt not
true that we have no expectations, no pur?
pose, no understanding that the rebel debt
shill be paid, or rebel soldiers pensioned, or
the slaves emancipated by the result of the
war paid for ? Is lt not true that we have no
purpose or expectation or understanding that
any of these things anall be done ? [Applause,
and cries of "Yon are right."]
Now, lellow-cltlzens, I wish to call your at?
tention to an aspect of this struggle which baa
not yet been presented. There ls no class of
our citizens, no part of the American people,
wbo have so real and great an Interest In the
success of our government as the colored peo?
ple of this country. Though they know that
we all admit ihelr rights are perfectly secured
by the constitution, and that no one can go
back; thal lt ls still their real interest that
their rights shall not be only accorded, but
that they should be fully accorded; that there
shall be no opposition, no objection to their
enjoying just the same political and civil rights
that we do, is their interest more than yours
or mine, that all contention concerning black
men or white men shall.absolutely cease ? that
every Individual shall be Judged and estima?
ted according to his worth, with no re
ipect whatever to color or condition ? If our
government succeeds, there is no parly, no
considerable faction-there Is nobody left In
the field opposing or objecting lo their siaud
Ing on the platform of American nationality.
[Applause.] I say, then, lt ls their clear In?
terest that our government shall be welcomed
and ratified and approved by the entire Amer?
ican people, and yet it ia a very discouraging
fact pr?t eat ed to us, that lhere ls no other
class so generally and so bitterly opposing us
as they are. There ls no other class, as a
class, who insist so thoroughly or mlsappre
hendingly In misrepresenting us. I say not
this to exclle prejudice against them. They
are Ignorant, and their Ignorance ls not their
own fault, though lt is their and ourmisior
tnne. They are misled, and we are calumnia?
ted In their cars.
I have been repeatedly asked lo contradict
assertions that I have been a negro trader.
Even on my way to this plaoe one quadroon
girl, on hearing me speak, said: "I would
like to slick a knlle into his heart. He sold
my mother Into Richmond, Va." [Laughter.]
I can Imagine no reason why iles like that
should be told. I can imagine no reason why
good men and women should not everywhere
discountenance and refute them.
It is, I say, the misfortune of tbe colored
people-a misfortune ot our people-that they
as a class are steeled against UB. They will
not hear us; they do not believe us. They are
told this movement ls a contrivance to get
them enslaved agalc, virtually, If not abso?
lutely, and that all the pretensions of the
Cincinnati platform and the Ballimore en?
dorsement In favor of equal rights are frauds
are lies. "If this pSrty succeeds," says Mr.
Wendell Phillips, "you must conceal your
property and take care of your arms."
Now. lellow-oltizens, I state theae facts
here not that I would have you think any
worse of these misguided people. I stale
them because I want you Kentuckians lo re?
alize that Ignorance ls public peril; that you
cannot well afford to have part of your people
growing up In that dense unacqualntance with
public men and public affairs that they can be
deceived and misled as this people are. You
must take care that they shall be educated so
that tbey shall be too wise, too well Informed
to be thus misinformed and misguided. Fel?
low-citizens, if our movement should prevail,
as I trust lt will prevail, we will sweep away
all this reluse ot lies in three months. We
will say to the colored men: We proffer you
nothing except the protection of the laws the
same for you as for us. You have your living
to earn as well as we. You will have lo use
all your abilities, all your energies, all your
faculties, and make the most of them you can.
The laws do not favor you, but they
will thoroughly protect you, and In
three months, if we succeed, the col?
ored people will be so disabused that the same
men can never deceive them again-never
again. But suppose we fall and, we may
fall. If the colored men did net believe that
the power was against us-that money was
against UB-If they did'not realize that the
treasury, the army, the one hundred thousand
office-holdei s, were all banded against UB In
force, which they believe we cannot over?
come, they certainly would not be so univer?
sally hostile to UB. Why, they think we can?
not succeed, and they want to be upon the
winning side. That ls part of lt; but tbey are
also deluded in regard to our purposes. We
say we are not your enemlea; we will not be
your oppressors; we will not, though you have
done us an injustice; we will try as well as we
can to have your children educated and en?
lightened, so that the mistakes you have made
cannot be made over and over again. ' That ls
where we stand.
Now, fellow-citizens, why do we condemn
proscription ? They are mistaken who say
there are only two or three hundred left now
forbidden to exercise the common rights of
American citizens. It ls not BO. There are
thousands. There are five thousand disfran?
chised in the State of Arkansas alone, and the
men who hold them disfranchised expect to
carry that State against ns by virtue of that
disfranchisement. But lt is not the number of
prescribed men who, as not under ibis ban,
leel themselves proscribed because others are,
for an offence which was their offence as well.
So long as you have a proscribed class In the
country, men all around them, honorable,
generous men, will feel I ought to be pro?
scribed tbe same as that man. The difference
waa only by accident. He happened to take
au oath or fill an office before the struggle
that I did not. His guilt was no more than
mine. Aceldent only makes bim proscribed,
and leaves me free. So that, so long as there
shall be a proscribed class io this country,
proscription will rankle In the hearts ot mil?
lions ol Americans, who feel that they them?
selves are condemned and banned in the act
which dooms their leaders.
It 1s not lor the sake of the proscribed alone
that I speak. Every community has the right
to the best services ot all its citizens. Men
Bay to me, "Why, yon don't want to elect
Toomba, or someoody else, do yon ?" No, 1
don't want to elect any of those men; but sup?
pose other people do ? Wbo are yon, and who
am I to say whether they ehall or not? It 1B
not a question for me. but whether American
citizens, whom yon say have the same rights
to vote and bold office as yon, shall be ar. liber?
ty to vote for men they prefer, or shall be
compelled to vote for men you prefer.
The question reaches notsereral hundreds,
but several millions of our people, w. ll, they
say, what do the people care about this " The
banka are making money, the people are pros?
pering, manufacturera are thrifty, who cares
that a few hundred or thousand men are dls
Iranchised? Icare. I say awar which ended
nearly eight years ago ought to have had nearly
all Its bloody traces wiped out belore this lime.
I say that while we have ol ten been amused
with promises of general amnesty, the gov?
ernment of the country bas practically been
controlled by men like Senators Morton and
Chandler and General Butler, ono o? which
senators Is saying : '"Well, then, all may for?
give rebels if they will, but I never can.'
Now that spirit ls not one which should rule a
republican country. A Republican should be
generous and faith lui-generous to errors
whereof the very last evil consequences have
long Blnce faded away. Grant that lt was
wrong, Indefensibly wrong; grant that the
whole Confederate movement was as heinous
as you please, still lt was utterly defeated.
It became a lost cause, and there ls no more
probability, and I may say no more possibility,
of another serious attempt to divide the Amer?
ican Union (han there ls uf an attempt to dis?
rupt and destroy the solar system. Never be?
fore did the Union stand so strong ss to-daj;
never was Its luture so aasured aa to-day, and
never did any movement result In a more
complete and ntter discomfiture than the Con?
federate movement Then,-I say seven and a
half years after the last shot was fired in be?
half of that movement, lt ls time for amnesty,
complete and perfect ; it ls time (br oblivion ot
offences that so long since passed away.
Fellow-citizens, weBtaDdon the principles'
embodied in our platform.. Those principles
our adversaries do not assail. They confess
judgment, but they Insinuate that a purpose is
therein declared which ls nqt our real purpose
and that we mean something utterly diff?rent,
and, therefore, proceed lo attribute to ns pur?
poses which we never cherished, which we
positively disavow, and which they ought to
know are utterly absurd. The most Important
of them are utterly forbidden by the constitu?
tion, and they know lt. No man can go to
Congress or be chosen President without
taking a solemn oath to sustain the constitu?
tion, which absolutely forbids the payment of
rebel debts or payment for emancipated
I commend my case to the sober Judgment
of the American people. I ask them to Judge
us without prejudice, without passion, and
with a spirit uniDflamed by wrath and ven?
geance. I ask them to judge us as citizens
who are sincerely trying to do what we be?
lieve best for our country, and I do trust that
passion and prejudice will not prevail, that we
shall be Jndged as we ' are and. not as we are
represented, and a beneficent triumph, which
will increase the value o! every acre of land
In the Southern States, which will in?
crease the product of these States,..make
their people harmonious, black and white,
and make them live In a more trustful, peace?
ful and irateroal relation - than they have
hitherto held toward each other, will be sc?
oured. I trust this result will be attained,
and that generations to come shall rejoice
over the Inception, progress and triumph of
the Liberal movement. [Applause.]
Friend1], I bid you good night.
At the close of his speech Mir. Greeley re?
tired amid cheers.
VENICE AB ?IT 18,
The Venetian women have long enjoyed the
reputation of being among the handsomest In
Southern Europe, and thor mil deserve.lt.
And their present modes ol dressing are very
becoming. I am not apt at descriptions of
toilettes, and shall not undertake lt; but their
bonnets, when they wear any, are such loves
of cunning little things that I shall not soon
lorget them; and when they do not wear them
their veils are wreathed as deftly and Anti er
as gracefully as they did in the times of which
we used to read when we were children.
Considering there are neither horses nor
wheeled vehicles of any kind to carry them
about, one sees more of them than you would
suppose practicable Io the softer parts ol
the day they make excursions to the Lido, an
attractive resort by the sea, and in the even?
ings they promenade Ihe Grand Square-a
place which has no peer In the extent of its
broad pavement, the grandeur of tts architectu?
ral surrounding*, the brilliancy of Its shops and
cafes, to say nothing of the scenes lt has wit?
nessed and memories it recalls-where they
enjoy the music and eacfa other; for among
themselves the Italians ere a sociable and ap?
parently an affectionate people, to our north?
ern natures sometimes ft little too much so, as
lt ls not uncommon to see sturdy Den kissing
on both sides of their mouths, with as hearty
a smack as Petrucblo gives to Katherine In
the play. Since we have been here we have
kept the gondolier-he Is anything but gay in
bia normal fustian suit-in pretty constant re?
quisition. It is, Indeed, delightful to loll
under a canopy and glide about with an
almost Imperceptible motion over clear wa?
ters and through picturesque avenues. It
would be so anywhere; but In Venice, where
every structure almost haB a history, and
every nook s ti ir pest s a romance-lt ls Ineffa?
bly charming.. And in the narrowest ways
you leel a sense of absolute security from
even trifling accident-of danger lhere ls
never any. It is amazing with what lacllity
these boals turn the sharpest corners, and
pass and repasa within a hair's breadth with?
out BO much as touching, much leBS colliding;
and this In the darkest night as well as the
brightest sunlight. On his own element, the
gondolier has as complete control of his craft
as the most skilful Jehu on the land ever ex?
hibits, and makes his way through sinuosities
which lt would puzzle the other io overcome.
A PORTABLE RAILWAY.-There ls now belog
constructed at tbe works of a wagon builder
at Ivry, near Paris, a klud of portable raliway,
Intended for the conveyanco or material In K
Rugar factory, tho lightness, simplicity, and
low price of which render lt a model example
ol portable railways. The way consists ot a
series of trestles about seventeen leet span.
These are placed on tbe ground without level?
ling lt In any manner, and the spans are cou?
pled together at their ends by a pin passing
through an Iron box at each end of every tres?
tle. A flatiron bolted to the upper part
of the horizontal bara of tbe trestles forms ihe
rails. Each span ol seventeen leet weighs
on Iv about forty-five pou ti de, so that f,hVj
are easy to take up and lay down. By them a
temporary Iron road can be rapidly established
which follows the natural contour of the
ground over which lt passes. The cars, In?
tended to carry each from one hundred to two
hu nd red and twenty pounds, form a series ol
ol rolling platforms. They are articulated one
to the other, and carry baskets on each
aide, In which the material to be moved ls
deposited. They are atiacbed to the platforms
each by four Iron brackets. By this there le
obtained for about fifty cents a yard a Iron road
on which a boree can haul on a level about ten
MUSCULAR EXPRESSION.-In an admirable
chapter on the relations of the mind to the
body, Professor Maudsley says : Those whe
would degrade the body in order, as they Ima
glne, to exalt the mind, should consider more

[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE NEWS.]
OBANQEBimo, September 24.
The particular of the negro riot in this
town, which has already been reported by
telegraph to THE NEWS, ire as follows:
While the Bolters' mealing waa belog ad?
dressed by Tomllnson and Davis, Jamison en?
deavored to Interrupt this speakers and draw
off the crowd. A soufflu ensued between a
young white man and a negro, and olnbs were
freely used by the black) In-attempting vio?
le nco to the white man. Hr. Cannon, the
marshal, bravely rushed in, and, with the aid
of several gentlemen, rescued the young man
and placed him In a store for safety. An at?
tempt was then made to storm the store, both
in front and rear, but lt was promptly and
effectively resisted by 8 few whites. The
marshal struck at a nerrro with his pistol,
which exploded In such close proximity to the
head of the black that a general scamper en-!
sued, but the crowd rallied, and seemed bent
on mischief until the stores all closed. Then
the band of music In attendance marched up
the street to draw off the crowd, and the lead?
ers cast loaves of bread among the crowd to
pacify them. The fighting afterwards amount?
ed to a general rough end tumble, but was
confined to the negroes, both men and wo?
men actively participan Dg. To-day ls the,

DEATH OF A SOC'.'H CAROLINIAN
David Camden DeLeon.
1 The Savannah Republicen informs us of the
death, at Santa Fe, New l l?xico, of Dr. David
Camden DeLeon, who at one time was acling
surgeon-general of the Confederate States.
The Republican says:
He was little more than fifty years old, but
bis career fiad been a mont active and event?
ful one, and his biography would give the
military history of all our wars from the Sem?
inole, In 1837, past the Me:clean, and through
our late civil war-lo each and all of which be
bore his part manfully and patriotically. It ls
a curious fact that the family was also repre?
sented In the only other uar this country bas
bad since the Revolution-for the name ot his
uncle, Dr. Abram DeLeon, will be lound on
tbe army UBIS ot 1812. . .
Born and reared In South Carolina, shortly
after obtaining his medical diploma at the
Philadelphia Behool, he entered the United
States army as assistant surgeon, and want
through the Seminole v ar. after which he
was stationed for several years at outposts on
out Western frontier. At the breaking oui; of
the Mexican war be went with General Taj lor
lo the Rio Grande, was present at most ot the
battles which led the victors to thegateu of
Mexico, and entered that ?;lty when lt surren?
dered, riding at General Scott's left hand.
For these services, as well as for gallantry in
action (when commanding officers were killed
or wounded and be toots their pine?? Dr.
DeLeon twice received the thanks of Con?
gress; but was again assigned to frontier duty
In Mexico, on the ground of his great energy
When secession took place he ranked very
high on the list ,n his department, waa lo
sight of Its highest place by seniority. Yet he
was one cf the first of the Southern officers of
the army to tender bis resignation. When he
did so he was sent for by his old commander
and Irlend, General Scott, who refused to ac?
cept ir, at the same time offering to send him
to the Northwestern frontier, with the pledge
that he should be kept there while the strife
continued. In the alternative of his refusal
General Scott threatened to put bim under ar?
rest, giving him a few heurs for bis decision.
He returned home, packed bis trank, and Im?
mediate! v Btarted for the Mouth and reported
to Mr. Davin, then provisional president ol
the Confederacy, who assigned him the diffi?
cult but Important task of arranging the
medical deparlmeut, at the head of which
he acted for several months, until the resigna?
tion of Dr. Moore, (who ranked him in the old
army,) under Mr. Davis's rule, gave that gen?
tleman the highest post. Transferred tc
another department, and to various placea
during I he war, until it closed in disaster and
defeat^ he shared the struggles and the suffer?
ings of his brethren. Whim all was over, with
several oilier officers, he passed from Texas
into Mexico, vowing he ni ver would return to
the conquered South until she was free. Alter
a year's trial of Mexico lie lett lt lo disgust,
and returned to New Mexico, where he had
been stationed for many years, and owned
property-there he planted and practiced hie
profession until his death, greatly beloved by
that primitive people.
His last years were darkened by exile, dis?
ease and suffering-and death came to him as
a deliverance. He was ba one of the many
unnoticed and unrecorded martyrs ot "-he
Lost Cause"-those ''unre pentant rebels," so
denounced at the North, who having sacrificed
profitable poBillons, and tn assured future to
their convictions of honor and duty, never re
celved even the recompense ot public recog?
nition from the people fer whom they made
these sacrifices-but havo sunk silently Into
unknown graves, and been forgotten. Yet,
if at Borne future and hippier day, the
full history of that struggle shall be writ?
ten ont in full, and each man shall have
his true place assigned him, Independently
of the political or mll.tary glitter which
have dazzled the public ?ye-on the muster
roll of Southern patriots, 1 rho made all sacri?
fices and asked no rec om j ie nee from the peo?
ple, during or since the war-the name ol
David Camden DeLeon m ist find a conspicu?
ous place. Personally no man had more de?
voted friends, and fewer enemies than he:
and both as a surgeon and man ol science be
stood high in his prolessloo. His literary cul?
ture was also high, and os a terse and vigorous
writer he bad few equals, whether writing on
professional, political or literary topics. In
hil manly sports also he excelled-his favorite
amusement in the West boing to break in the
wild ''Mustangs." He never married, but hat
leit two brothers and three sisters to mourn
bis loss and cherish bis memory.

A SEA FIOHT ON THE STAGE.
A French correspondent of the Orchestra
gives some details of the working of the won?
derful 6hlp scene in the Galete drama of "La
Fils de la Null." We are told the stage ls en?
tirely cleared, and three long lines of rails art
laid down-one coming straight down from
the back towards the ioolllghts, and anothei
from the left wing, while the last traverses
the stsge at the first grooves. The big vessel,
mounted complete upon a platform furnished
with rollers, remains lill wanted at the ex?
treme back of the stage, and is pushed down
the rails and turned to the lett ready to enter.
The painted cloth, representing the ocean, le
then laid down, and the first row of "waves"
take their place. They are little boys,
wno, armed with semi-circular canes,
creep under the canvas, and, pushing
their covering, Imitate the movement o? the
sea. There are filly of these useful alda tn
all; the second row being composed of full
grown men on their knees, and the last and
most stormy undulations of the main are
formed by tbe movementa of auxiliaries wbo
stand erect The electric light plays upon the
'ops ot the waves, and tbe brig appears. It
soon reaches the middle of tbe scene, where a
turn-table ls fixed, supported by the robust
shoulders of twenty-five men, who, by moving
up and down in measure, imitate the rolling
and pltchiog of a ship in a gale ol wind. The
attacking boats now come along the
horizontal line of rails, and tbe vessel
ls boarded and taken after a bot
hand-to-hand fight. When the piece was
first produced Borne years ago Mr. Fechter
was playing in Paris, and his presence averted
a contretemps. The cloth representing the sea
gave way lu one part, and the head and bust
of one of the "waves," who, for the sake ol
coolness, had divested himself of his upper
garments, came through, and remained lolly
exposed to the gaze of the audience. Mr.
Fechter, who represented tbe pirate captain,
and was supposed to command on deck, did
not lose bis presence ol mind, but immediately
cried out, "A man overboard 1" Aided by the
crew the amazed super was hauled on board,
amid the applause of tbe gratified spectators,
who landed that this rescue from a watery
grave formed part of the play.
