-The Paris papers tell of a duel on a plano
between two musicians. They played for for?
ty-eight hoon without food or drink. Having
ommenced with pieces of a sedate character,
they passed on to waltzes, and thence to ope?
ratic mnalc. One had played the Miserere In
"HTrovatore" five hundred and eighty times,
and was commencing on the five hundred and
eighty-first performance of that piece, when
he sank to rise no more. The other was con?

.-The. Panama Star and Herald gives
- striking illustration of the vigor and rapidity j
of v?g?tation In the tropics, by referring to
the boshes and trees growing In tbe ruins of
the barned A spin wall Hotel at Panama. It Ia [
. scarcely more than two years since this con
- aagratlon took, place, and yet there are now
growing within the walls trees at least thirty
feet in height They belong to what are called
. trumpet trees (genus Cecropia) and the
%t bran ches are said to be crowding out of the
highest doora and windows, so as to render lt
probable that In their further growth they
will throw down the walla with which they
are Interlaced. ' -
-The Principality ol Lippe, a sovereign
State ot the German Empire, containing about
eight hundred square miles and one hundred
thousand inhabitants, has the privilege of oc?
cupying public attention by a most amusing
situation. As ls known, the Prince asked
Prussia fora minister, and the excellent M. de
Plot well was sent. The people seem to be so
well contented that they will not put a hand
to their own government. At the elections
for the Diet, not a single candidate came for?
wards The ministry has In consequence de?
clared, in the Monitor of the State, that de- j
privedof the assistance of a national repre?
sentative, lt la under the n e oe ssl ty of go ve rn i og
alone, and that lt will do so on Its personal
responsibility, as long as the citizens sh ail be
. pleased to decline the mission ot deputy.
-The acquisition of Saman a Bay, which has
Jost been effected by the private enterprise of |
Hew York, Boston and Philadelphia capital
1st*, ls altogether satisfactory and cannot but
prove to be of Immense value to the com?
merce and business of tbls country. Santana
Bay, aa ls well known, ls the finest port In the
West Indies, and ls capable of holding all the
navin in the world. It bas long been a de?
sired possession to American tradesmen, ant.
the project of annexing that and other por?
tions of Dominica was objectionable not Inhe?
rently, but on account of the suspicious as?
pects of the administration's scheme, wblob
were too many and flagrant to need repeti?
tion. Now that Samana Bay bas been se?
cured to tbe United States by direct pur?
chase, without any hint of chicanery in the
proceedings, and without the concomitant
Jobs wblob loaded down the previous meas?
ure, our mercantile dealings with the West
Indies must Infallibly receive a prodig?os Im?
petus and facilitation; and the condition and
prospects of San Domingo will also be doubt
less as greatly Improved as tbe disinterested
Baez could have anticipated (rom annexation.
-Burgeon Hammond, ol the United States]
Arm;, who was with Mr. Greeley the day be?
fore be died, says: "I Buppose Mr. Greeley
said a hundred times while I was with bim,
'Now mind I when I was born I died, and
when I died I was born.' This idea seemed to
be perpetually In his mind, and when he re?
peated the words he would look his listeners
very attentively In the face. In order to test
bia consciousness I asked him If be knew Mr.
Dickens. I knew that he dtd, for I was present
at the dinner to Mr. Dickens, at which Horace
Greeley .presided. He exclaimed: (I never
heard the name In my Ute! Now mind! when
I was born I died, and when I died I was
born.' I then told him that Tharlow Weed
bad been to my bouse and was Inquiring for
for him. He answered as he did before: 'I
sever heard the name before. Now mind!
when I was born I died, and when I died 1
waa born.' it was evident to me that no
gleampf wnscibnshess remained. He very
rarely-answered the questions I asked bim,
and whenever he did, the answers were
wrong. He seemed to be troubled nearly all
the time with a pain in the head, and would
continually place bis hand on his forehead, as
though he was suffering intensely in that
region. His ?pulse" waa very feeble, beating
at the rate of one hundred and twenty-five per
minute, and very irregular and intermittent.
It waa so feeble that I found lt difficult to de?
tect th? fact that lt waa Intermittent. I could
only do so by listening to the beating of his j
heart; An Intermittent pulse ls a dangerous]
import fora mau Buffering under the disease
which afflicted Mr. Greeley."
-The-two daughters ol the late Mr. Greeley j
have, through their inherited distinction, their |
own personalworth and accomplishments, and
tbe great afflictions through which they have
*een called upon to pasa, become ex?
tremely interesting to well disposed people all

sing Intelligence far above the ordinary, she
baa long kept herself poBted not only on the
current matters of the day, but on still more
abstruse subjects. Tbe story o? her engage?
ment to the purser of the ill-fated Missouri
grew out of some hints thrown out by himself
of a tender Intimacy with Miss Ida, and, be?
cause untrue, they have given fiat yeung lady
considerable an no j ance. The family became
acquainted with him on their trip to Nassau,
and with common courtesy asked him to call.
He not only called, but remained some lime,
bot, though treating him well, the yonng lady
gave him no encouragement. Miss Ida was
educated In a convent, and as a consequence

appearance. She ls .flaxen-haired, sweet

ceedingly gentle. Having, perhaps, lesa inde?
pendence and determination, ehe ls yet as
much to be admired in her way. Though, as
they have said, the property lelt them is not
yet determined, there seems to be no danger
that they are lett unprovided for.
A Stale Trick.

York, la inviting green-horns to buy bogus
greenbacks, which they may send the cash
for but will not get. This information, like

Representative Gilmore, of Richland, in?

Tine Atlantic and Pacific Kui) road.
The Wilmington Journal notices the arri?
vai in Wilmington of Mr. Arthur Holmes,
the attorney of the new Railroad corpora?
tion known as the Atlantic and Pacific Sea?
board Railway. The road, aa projected,
will ron from Norfolk, Ya,, to Charleston,
S. C., via Wilmington. It will strike Ibo
North Carolina State line In Gates County,
passing thence tbrongh the counties of
Gates, Hertford, Bertie, Martin, Beaufort,
Craven, Jones, Onslow, New Hanover and
Brunswick to the South Carolina line, and
I thence via Con way boro' and Georgetown,
S. C., to the City of Charleston.
The Wilmington Star says that the project
meets with great favor in Wilmington, and
that lt is thought that the people will sub?
scribe $100,000 towards building the road.
A Good Example.
As the City Connell are bent on trying
their lack in the Supreme Court, the pnblio
are interested in having the cost ot the game
rednced to a low point. They will, there?
fore, be gratifled to learn that Mr. P. Phillips,
a leading Washington lawyer, has agreed to
argue the railroad-tax cases, before the
United States Supreme Court, for a retainer
of $600, with a. like sam In addition if be
succeed ia reversing the decree. Mr. Phil?
lips is a native of Charleston, and espouses
the cause of the city with a warmth which
gives promise that if conclasions be not
speedily tried with the railroad companies,
exempted by their charters from taxation,
it will be no fault of his. It is doe to Mr.
Phillips to say that he expressed a willing-,
ness to give the city the benefit of his val?
uable services without any charge whatever.
The Purchased Senatorshlp.
The end of the Senatorial election day
was worthy of the beginning. Upon the
first ballot in the House of Representatives,
and the second ballot in the Senate, a can?
didate was elected who is the worst speci?
men that South Carolina has known of the
brood of locusta who swarmed southward at
the close of the war. This man, J. J. Pat?
terson, contrived most of the dirty work
which bas been done in Columbia during the
past three years. Ia every corrupt scheme
be has had a finger, if not both hands. The
man bas brains, and his exploits here do
credit to the training of Simon Cameron and
Tom Scott, whose pupil he ls, and whose
tool he ls believed to be. It was he who
I scooted the Idea that Sooth Carolina was
rained, saying: "Give ns the State and
"we'll show, that it can stand a heap more
"squeezing." And, unless public report do
him great wrong, it was he who bragged
that he could, and would, bay the senator
ship. Mr. Patterson represents Sooth Caro?
lina less than the black Congressman Elliott,
and less than the tergiversating Scott. He
was the worst candidate ia the field, and he
is elected, by his parse, to represent Sooth
Carolina in the United States Senate for six
years to come. Heaven help as 1
The election belag over, Mr. Patterson
was arrested upon the charge of having
bribed a member of the Legislature. Did
he submit to arrest as became an innocent
man, or as became a citizen jost elected to
be a. "grave and honorable" Senator of the
Republic? Not he I According to the ac?
count telegraphed to THE NEWS, he swore
at the magistrate and attempted to shoot
him. His drunken supporters followed bis
example, and ia the confusion the culprit
walked away. Subsequently he was re?
arrested upon the charge of being guilty of
contempt Of court. A convenient judge
heard the case and discharged Mr. Patter?
son, who was carried off, in triumph, npon
the shoulders of his adherents. The con?
duct ol' Mr. Patterson, from first to last,
was arrogant and insolent. It was not to
be expected that a man who could bay Leg?
islatures should respect simple constables
and mere magistrates.
The prosecution of Mr. Patterson for bri?
bery may or may not be pressed. His in?
dictment and conviction, whatever the evi
: dence, depends upon various considerations.
[Bat the public have before them sworn
! affidavits charging Mr. Patterson with bri?
bery, and no acquittai in South Carolina
will relieve bim or the stain. One court
alone eta try him with the Impartial dignity
which his case deserves. That court Ts the
Senate of the United States, of which he ls
elected a member. In the Senate are many
earnest, high-spirited men, who will, ir they
can, Bave lt from being made the- home of
adventurers who have not even the decency
to veil their shame and hide their corrup?
tion. To them the people will appeal, de?
manding that John J. Patterson shall not
be admitted to his seat until the charges
against him are proved to be false. This is
?ot a party matter. The Senator from
South Carolina is snre to be a Republican.
It reata with the Senate to say whether they
will sit cheek by jowl with a so-called Re?
publican who is accused of the most heinous
public crime of which a candidate can be
guilty, or whether they will, by patient in?
vestigation, establish the measure of his
culpability and .punish him as he deserves.
What be bas schemed and plotted and paid
for is a seat in the United States Senate. A
fitting punishment would be to strip him of
his robe and send him, with a brand on his
forehead, into the racks of the people.
