JIt has been stated that Rear Admiral

8"Tjate advices from Europe leave no
doubt that a war with China will be popular
both in England and France. As the hands
of these governments are now free they will
strike strong blow j. The war will be carried,
no doubt, up the Pehio, and to the capital
itself Pekin: but with what success it is to be
seen. It will be remembered that in the war
of 1858 the Pehlo forts were firmly defended
by the Tartar forces, who are brave and
skilful, and have since much improved in
engineering and gunnery.
S-Table Rock, once so conspicuous at
Niagara Palls, has quite disappeared, and the

tion started by a practical geologist that in
ten or fifteen thousand years hence the rooky
ledge which now causes the Palls will be worn
away, and the water will descend in a series of
rapids, similar to those whioh characterize the
St. Lawrenoe. This being the case, those who
have not seen Niagara in its grandeur had
better go this fall, for there is no knowing
what may happen.

fiSFll was for a long time supposed that
Mount Washington, of the White Mountain
group, was the highest peak east of the Kooky
lountains, but this honor must now be defin
itely conferred upon Smoky Mountain, belong
ing to the Black Mountain group, and situated
in Jackson County, North Carolina, ' near the
Tennessee line. Pr if. John Le Conte, of South
Carolina College, accompanied by Mr. Cling
man and Mr. Buckley, has made aoourate bar
ometric observations of the various bights ooat-
5 rising this' group, during the past summer,
here gentleman and Prof. Ouyot have ascer
tained that North Carolina has no lots than
fifteen peaks higher than Mount Washington.
According to Capt. Cram, of the United States
Sunoy, the liight of Mount Washington is
16,2)3 feet The elevation of Smoky Mountain
is 6,737 feet.
The Fatal Duel in California—Further
Particulars.
The duel in California between Judge Terry
and Senator Broderiok, resulting in the death
of the latter, elicits considerable comment on
the part of the press. The origin ef the un
fortunate difficulty is narrated as follows:
J udge David S. Terry wss one of those who,
in the summer of 185S, had the misfortune to
fall into the hands of the vigilance committee
of San Pranoisco. He had rendered himself
obnoxious to the vigllants by issuing a procla
mation against their high-handed proceedings,
granting writs of habeat corpus for prisoners in
their hands, and taking an active part in the
collection of arms wherewith to suppress the
vigilants by force. In resisting the arrest of
one Malony,on the 23d ef June, 185S, he in
flicted a serious wound with a knife on the
person of a prominent member named Hop
kins, who was said to hare been the execu
tioner of Casey. Terry was seized and brought
to tha viffilanae headminrinr.. V .
kept in close confinement till the 15th of
i .. . ..n t i , ,
luuuwiug, uaving in me meantime un
dergone a protracted trial before the executive
committee.
Had Hopkins died, as it was first thought
be would, Terry would have assuredly paid
the forfeit of his life; but the wound proved to
bo not very serious, and Terry was discharged.
At the last State Convention in California he
was a candidate for re-eleotion, bat failed to
get the nomination. He made a speech at the
convention, in which he abused llroderick in
unmeasured terms. Broderiok was incensod
at this, and in a conversation whioh be had at
the breakfast table ef the International Hotol,
in San Prancisoo, in the hearing ef Mr. Per
ley, who bad been Terry's law partner, he re
marked that it was a groat pity that the vigi
lants bad not hanged Terry whoa they had
him in thoir bands, and that if he had re
ceived his deserts he would hare been hanged
Perley said he would eommunioate Broderiok'n
words to Terry. Broderiok replied tbitt ho
expected as mnoh, and intimated his read!
less to hold himself responsible for his lan
guage. Out of this transaction a correspondence oc
curred between Perley and Broderiok. Mr.
Broderiok declined Mr. Perley's challenge,
assigning as a roason that he, a Senator of the
United States, oould not have sueh an issue
with tbe party challenging, but intimating
that after tbe pending canvass was over he
would acoept an invitation from Judge Terry
himself.
It appears that as soon as the result of tbe
election was ascertained, Judge Terry sent in
a challenge to Mr. Broderiok, whioh was ac
cepted. The seconds were for Mr. Broderiok,
Hon. Jos. C. MoKibben, and for Jodge Terry,
Calhoun Benham, Esq. The weapons were
six-shooters, and Broderiok was killed at tbe
first fire.
Senator Broderiok and Judge Terry both
owed their positions in the oommnnity rather
to their politioal management of oaucuses and
primary elections than to any peculiar merit in
themselves or fitness for their high offices.
Broderiok, whose mother still resides in the
Eighth Ward of New York, was at one time
foreman of Engine Company No. 34. When
the gold discoveries in Colifornia became
known in the Eastern States, and produced
such an immense emigration to the Paoifie, he
set oat for that region, and waa among the
earliest of the advonturers there. ' From bis
familiarity with the scienoeof politioal maneu
vering, he soon became prominent in publio
life, and was, in 1857, elected by the Legisla
ture of California to the Senate of the United
States. In that position he conducted himself
honorably and high-mindedly, and showed a
degreo bf ability that was hardly to be expected
from his antecedents.
Judge Terry was also early in publio life. A
native of one of the Southern States, and left
an orphan at an early age, he went to Texas
and took part in the struggle for Texas inde
pendence. After his return ho devoted himself
to the studvof the law. waa mlmitt.,1 f h

and while bis life was in imminent danger, he
was offered a disoharse if ha would nnn.nnt. in

bo, out as reiueea, ana issued an address to the
people of the State, In which he expressed his
determination that he wnnhl net. h
prison alive in any other position than as Judge
of the Supreme Court. He was reputed to be
a dead shot, and there was some surprise felt
when the first erroneous nawi nf ib dn.i
represented him as having been wounded by

The New Tork Tribune says:

Strange Freak of a Girl.
writer folates the follow
ing incident;
"A yonng girl "of considerable personal
attraction," who, exhausted and breathless,
with palid oheek and tearful eye, totters up to
her mother's oottage with a beautiful babe in
her arms, and exolaims, "behold, mother, I
have been guilty, but visit not my offense npon
the head of this sweet innooent," faints away
as she lays the baby npon her mother's knee,
The mother, an excellent woman, loves the
baby at ence for the daughter's sake, and
although poor to the last degree, aooepts this
new ohaige without a murmur, in order to
save her child from disgrace and Brume. The
beautiful cap-maker oomes to see it, and lav
ishes all a mother's fondness on the child, and
this curious cemedy huts for several months;
when one fine day gtndarma come to the
cottage to claim the child, whioh had beon
stolen from, its parents by the girl, and
searched for in vain through the towns of
Nantes, with offers ef large rewards for the
recovery. The girl oould give no other reason
for the Indulgence of this singular whim, but
"that the desire to have a little girl, and enjoy
the blessings of maternity," had taken anon
deep possession of her soul that she had sought
the first opportunity of its gratification. The
reason astonished the jury on her trial, but
did not satisfy them, so the beautiful cap
maker was condemned to two year's imprison
ment. 1 . : -

BALTIMORE, October 13.
Two men were shot dead lost sight in the
street. .One wosayoung Irishman, in French
street, and tho other tho mate of a bay craft,
lying in Union Dock. No arrests have been
made.
In the election yesterday, in the Twentieth
Ward the ballot box was smashed and no
return was made. The result shows that nat
uralized voteB were almost entirely excluded.
Notwithstanding this fact, the reformers carry
seven wards, and with two or three excep
tions the most objectionable candidates are
defeated.
There is a vast improvement in the char
acter of tho new Council. In the Fourth
Ward the Reformers endorsed the American
nominee, and claim him as a Reformer.
The friends of Reform are greatly en
couraged, and hope to achieve a complete
triumph in the State electiou.
The popular vote, leaving out the Twenti
eth Ward, shows the Americans have only
387 majority, while thoy had 19,000 majority
at the last election, for Mayor. But littlo
more than half the voto was polled.

Last evening the prize fighters, Heenan and
Morrissey, came very near a rough and tumble
fight in tbe Park. It appears that they came
in contact at the Astor House, where Heenan
offered to bet Morrissey $500 that he could
whip him any way, and urged that they
should go over into the Park and settle the
matter at enoe.
Both repaired to the Park and were about
engaging in a pitched battle, when their respec

rumored about town that they had a fight, but

The following story It told by the Syra
cuse Journal:
Tbe editor of the Buffalo Evening Put has
been very violent at timoa in denunciation of
the New York Central Railroad; but reoently
he desired to go East, and he thought it would
be very eonvenient to be "bribed with a pass."
Expressing his thoughts to a friend, he re
marked that if he bad not been so violont to
ward the road he supposed he might got the
coveted pass. His friend assured him that if
he would apply to Dean Richmond he would be
accommodated, and aftor consideration be oon
eluded to make tho attempt. He accordingly
oalled on tho Deinooratie Mogul.
"Mr. Richmond," said the editor, "I am
going East, and I have called to see if yon
can aocommodate me with a pass."
"Certainly, sir, certainly, sir; with the
greatest ploasure," said Mr. Richmond, and he
prooeeded to fill out tho pass.

Paris. The Paris correspondent of the
Boston Adverlitcr says :
Paris is being torn down and rebuilt with
an activity that borders on the marvel
ous. Narrow streets, that had been for cen
turies damp, dark and unhealthy, have
disappeared as if by enchantment, and long
rows of white palaces replace the old tum-bled-down
jumbled-up dwellings that have
been demolished. Light and air have thus
gained an access to portions of the city that
knew them not, and great is the consequent
reduction in bills of mortality. The atone
used for building in Paris is one peculiarly
adapted to the purpose. Of a rich cream
color, it presents a boautifnl appearance and
possesses a singular property. It is, when
first quarried, easily cut with the knife or
chisel, and thus the beautiful sculptures that
may be seen on the facades of all tho new
houses in Paris are chiseled without diffi
culty. But exposure to the air renders this
soft and cosily-worked stone as hard as
granite, so that being accommodatingly
soft at first it becomes duly bard in the conrso
of time, renduring the beauttful ornaments

two stages in the burning of the wood ; in the
first, the heat comes chiefly from flame, in
the second from red bet coals. Soft woods
are much more active in the first stage than
the hard, and hard woods more active in the
second than the soft. The soft woods burn
with a voluminous flame, and leave but little
coal, while the hard woods produce less flame
and a larger mass of coal. (
