THE mW OF HONOR.
A FULL AiWOVXT THE RECENT
* CR mNGEBURG DUEL,
Woe CMUS Belli-The Fighting Ground
-Fra I tl eu Attempts to Settle the
Quarrel-Two Shots Ezchmnged-No?
body Hurt-How lt ?ll Boded.
[From the Aliena ta Chronicle and Sentinel.]
Band Bar Ferry ls rapidly regaining the
reputation aa a duelling ground which lt had
before the war, and ls becoming a favorite re?
sort for belligerently inclined parties from
tho Btates ol Georgia and Sooth Carolina.
Bot a short time since two gentlemen from
Athens resorted thither to settle their little
unpleasantness, and on Monday a couple ol
Carolinians went to the Ferry on a little ex?
cursion gotten up for the same purpose. The
Parties to the duel were two
. NEWSPAPER EDITORS
from OrLOgeburg, South Carolina-Mr. James
T. Heyward, editor of the Orangeburg Times,
?Demouraiic,) and Mr. Malcolm J. Browning,
editor of tn? Orangtburg Newe, (Badlcal.)
From what we can learn ot the affa!r,the origin
and c regress of the difficulty were as follows :
When the news of the Boston fire came a par?
agraph appeared In the Times, s tibs ia at lally,
thus : "When General Sherman burned Co?
lumbia the Bostonians fired cannon over the
news. Who will shoot now ?" The Columbia
Union (Badlcal) published a very harsh criti?
cism upon the paragraph lo question, which
the Times declined to notice on account of Its
sonroer A few weeks ago tbe Orangeburg
News also essayed a lecture to the Times upon
Ita editorial. This provoked a severe reply
from the Times. Among-other things stated
In the reply was an assertion that Mr. Brown?
ing's (who had recently taken charge of the
News) editorial predecessor was'a negro
man, named Clyde. In the Issue ol the News,
wblebsppeared last;week, this statement was
denounced an a willoi and malicious falsehood.
Hr. Heyward then sent a demand for a re?
traction, which was relnsed, and then a chal?
lenge, which was accepted, and tba parties
agreed to come to Georgia, to fight lt out.
A FRDTTLKSS ARREST.
The original agreement was that the car
ties should fight near this city, on Sunday, tLe
8th Instant, at twelve o'clock. On Saturday
night, however, when the train reached
Branchville, Mr. Browning was arrested.
Be'p?ha of the duel bad gotten ont and some
one had sent Intelligence ahead in order to
have tbe fight stopped. Mr. Browning, arter
being detained awhile, gave bond to keep the
peace In South Carolina, and wan released.
The discharge came too late for him to keep
the appointment, and the duel lor that day
wai frustrated. The other principal reached
the city In time without experiencing any de-1
tentlon, and on 8n-nd.ay-s? eleve n o'clock, ac
companied by hlrlrleod, rode promptly to the
ferry in bia carrlage^where he wafted some
time lor his antagonist The other parties not I
arriving he re tu rae* teethe city. On Sunday
night Mr. BrownliraBSiraearn, came in from I
Branchville, and Jacafoyward's Irlends and I
the friends of Mr. Browning made an arrange- I
ment for another meeting at the same placel
on the next day (Monday), at 12 c'o lo cfc.
THE WHOLE A-F?A?R WAS KEPT DABS, - I
and scarcely any onej in the city knew any-1
thing about IL ll the duel had taken place on J
Sunday, as was at first 'agreed upon, the
chances are that no one would have heard ot
lt In time to be present, and the only specta
tors Would have been the surgeons and tbe
seconds. Bnt after the carriage went out on
Sunday morning, and Its destination became I
known, suspicions were aroused, which re-1
suited In the discovery that a duel was on
foot, though nothing could be learned from I
?he parties. As lt was, however, this Infor-1
mellon was confined to a fewvand at the time
the carriages left the olty yesterday not more I
than twenty persons knew that a duel was on
the tapis. After tbe parlies left the town
Baverai persons heard ot the affair and came
down to ?the ferry In time to witness Its ter-1
ON TEE GROUND.
The carriage containing Mr. Browning, bis I
second, Mr. Waller, and Mr. Van Tassels and
another gentleman, was the first to leave tbe
city, and arrived first ripen the ground, halt-1
lng near the bank of the Savannah river. In I
a few minutes Hr. Heyward arrived In an I
open phaeton, accompanied by his second, Mr. r,
voss, and Dr. Legare, Colonel 0. A. Butler, ot
this city, and Colonel Frederick, ol Orange-1 '
burg, his friends. Hr. Hey ward's carriage
halted In the fringe o? trees r anni og parallel
with the river, and Mr. BrowntogTs vehicle
also entered the grove soon afterwards.
A CONVENIENT LOCALITY.
The beauty about tbe Sand Bar Ferry duel- j
ling ground lavtbat-it- can be naed by persons I
from either State^-the Carolinana fiehtlng in I
Georgia and the1 Georgians In South Carolina.
As tl?portie*to this' affair were South Caro?
linians, of course the duel bad to be tought on
this side cl the river, and lt was decided that
thefightihonldtake place near the lerrv. A j
bettexsSct could Dot have been chosen. Be
tweeptiie river and the woods-a distance of
eevenu hundred yards-there ls a wide.open
space almost entirely devo?jN)f trees and un?
dergrowth, and thickly carpeted with grass.
This was the field selected. Through the thick
grass the highroad to the ferry wound Its way.
In the road, which runs almost at right angles
to the Savannah, the men 'were lo be placed, I
at a distance or about fifty yards from the I
THE DISTANCE I
was to be ten <pabes, anff'the parties were to I
be placed north and south from each other.
gf^V ^^THB WEAPONS.
Some Trouble, we understand, was expo-I
rlenoed In agreeing upon weapons. Mr.
Browning; as inf-challenged party, had the.
right to decide what kind ol weapons should
be used. Pistols, of course, were to be the
weapons ; bot what kind of pistols ? Mr. Hey- f
ward\ through his friend, proposed a pair of I
Tegular duelling pistols, which were rejected.
His friend next proposed a pair of Colt's navy
revolvers, which have, become popular with
duellists ot late, and which were also declined.
A pair of strong-:shooting Derringers were
M? offered, ahdfcttese also rejected. Mr.
ffMgfcluli iji -friendittfien proposed a pair of
VP A Wesson cartridge revolvers, which I
Vfre finally accepted by Mr. Hey ward.
? CHOICE Or POSITION AND TUS WORD. j
In a toss up for position the choice was won
by Mr. Heyward's friend, who placed his prln- !
cipal with- his face to the north, and at the I
mom elevated end or vtbe line-the road
sloping a little as It approached the river. Mr.
Browning's friend won the privilege of giving
the word. ,-.
ATTEMPT TO SETTLE. !
Io the meantime Dr. DeSaussure Ford, the
surgeon of Hr.?Brownlng, (Dr. Barton, of I
Booth Carolina, acting in that capacity for Mr. I
Hayward,) and some of the otber gentlemen I
present, attempted to nave the matter ad-1
justed without an exchange of shots. But the
effort proved unsuccessful. Mr. Browning re
fused to retract bis article nnless Mr. Heyward
would first retract his, which the latter poal-1
tivelj declined. Nothing, therefore, remained
to be done bnt to put the men upon the field
and let the question be settled by lead.
m roamoN. j
At half-pint twelve o'clock' the men came
from the grove to the field. Mr. Il ey ward
had on a full dress snit of black, closely but
toned np. Mr. Browning wore light pants and
a dark coat Tbe pistols were banded tbe
principals, and Messrs. Voss and Waller took
position on the right and left of the centre ot
the Une. The principals stood sideways, each I
grasping bis weapon with the muzzle down. I
- Sfj-.JW'aUQr gave the word, "Gentlemen, are I
you ready ? Fire 1 One, two, (bree. Stop."
The weapons were discharged between tbe
words "one and "stop," but without effect
both men aiming too high. %
A SECOND SHOT. j
Mr. Brownings second then asked the sec-1
ond ol Mr. Hey ward If he was Bailsfied. The I
lather replied In the negative, and prepara
tiona were made for another fire-all efforts L
for a settlement again proving unavailing. [
Again the pistols were banded to the princi?
pals, the word given, and the weapons dis
charged. Both parties were uninjured-Mc.
Browning's ball going In the ground, snd Mr.
Hey ward's striking In rear or bis antagonist.
HOW IT WAS ARRANGED.
Dr. Ford, Colonel Butler, and other?, now I
\again sought to arrange matters. Mr. Frown
lng, we learn, claimed that under the code
having exchanged two shots-he had already
elven satisfaction, but declined to retract un?
less there was a mutual retraction, which Mr.
Hey ward refused. Urged by his friends, wno
represented the view taken as above to bim, I
Hr. Heyward consented to sarnie and leave
the told without making lrlends. The two
?prinerpalu then advanced alone, each '.bree I
fcinfff saluted; without speaking, and ?e tl red
?bm the ground. They then entered their I
?arrtages, and principals, seconds, surgeons I
^bd spectators returned to tbe olty.
