The Desperate Duel between Jackson
and Dickinson.
The famous duel between Jaokson and
Dickinson is generally ', known, but
Parton's recent lifo of tho former gives an
oxeollent account of the affair with some
circumstances that are now: .
Dickinson's second won the ehoico of
position, and Jaokson's the office of giving
tho word. Tho astute Overton considered
this giving of the word a matter of great
importance, and he had already deter
niinod how he would give it, if the lot fell
to him. The eight paces were measured
off, and the mon placed; both were per
fectly collected. All the politeness of
such occasions was strictly and elegantly
performed. Jaokson .was dressed in a
loose frock coat, buttoned carelessly over
his chest, and concealing in some degreo
the extreme slendorness of his figure.
Dickinson was the younger and hand
somorman of the two. But Jackson's
tall, erect fiigure, and the still intensity of
bis demeanor, it is said, gave him a most
superior and commanding air, as he stood
under tho tall poplars on this bright May
morning, silently awaiting the moment of
doom.
"Are you ready?" said Overton.
"1 am ready," replied Dickinson.
"I am ready," said Jackson.
Tho words were no sooner pronounced,
than Overton, with a sadden shout, cried,
using his old country pronunciation,
"Fees!" ,
Dickinson raised his pistol quickly and
lircd. Overton, who was looking with
anxiety and dread at Jackson, saw a puff
of dust fly from the breast of his ooat, and
saw him, raise his loft arm, and ploco it
tightly across his chest "lie is surely
hit" thought Overton, "and in a bad
place, too; but no; he does not fall." Erect
and grim as fate he stood, his teeth
olonchod, raising his pistol Overton
glanocd at Diokinson. Amazed at tho
unwonted failuro of his aim, and appalled
at tho awful figure and faco before him,
Dickinson had unconsciously recoiled a
paooortwo,
"Great God I" he faltered, "have I
missed him?" ,
"Back to theMAKK, sir I" shrieked Over
tun, with his hand upon his pistol.
Dickinson rocoverod his composure,
stepped forward to the pog, and stood
with eyes averted from his antagonist
All this was the work of a momont,
though it requires many words to tell it
General Jackson took deliberate aim,
and pullcdtho triggor. The pistol neithor
snapped or wont off. Ho looked at the
trigger, and discovered it had stopped at
half cock. He drow it back to its placo,
and took aim a second timo. Ho fired.
Dickinson's faoe blanched; he reelod;
his friends rushod toward him, caught
him in thoir arms, and gently seatod him
on the ground, leaning against a bueh.
His trowscrs reddened. They stripped
off his clothes. The blood was gushing
from bis side in a torrent And, alas I
here is the ball, not near tho wound, but
abovo tho opposite hip, just undor tho
skin. Tho ball had passed through the
body, below the ribs. Such a wound
could not but bo fatal.
Overton went forward and learned tho
condition of the wounded man. Kejoning
his principal, ho said, "He won't want
anything more of you, General," and
conducted him from tho ground. They
had gone an hundred yards, Overton
walking on ono side of Jaokson, tho
surgeon on the other, and neither speak
in? a word, whon the surgeon observed
that ono of Jackson's shoos were full of
blood.
"My God I General Jaokson, aro you
hit?" ho oxclaimcd, pointing to tho blood.
"Oh! I believe," ropliod Jaokson, "that
he has pinkod me a little. Let's look at
it Hut say nothing about it thero,"
pointing to the house.
He opened his coat Dickinson's aim
had been perfect He had sont the hall
precisely where he supposed Jackson's
heart was beating. But the thinness of
his body and the looseness of his coat
combining to doooive Diokinson, the ball
had only broken a rib or two. and raked
tho breast-bone. It . was a somewhat
painful, bad looking wound, but neither
severe nor dangerous, and he was able
to ride to the tavern without muoh incon
venience. Upon approaching the house,
ho went up to one of the negro women
who was churning, and asked her if the
i.uttor bod come, one said it was just
coming. He asked for some buttermilk.
While she was getting it for him, she
observed him furtively open his eoat and
look within it She saw that his shirt
was soaked with blood, and she stood
azing in blank horror at the Bight
ipper in hand. He caught her eyo, and
hastily buttoned his coat again. Bhe
dinned out a auart measure fall of butter
milk, and gave it to him. He drank it off
at a draught; then went in, took off his
coat, ana had his wound oaretoJiy ex
amined and dressed. ' That done, he
dispatched ono of his retinue to Dr. Callot
to inquire respecting the condition of
Dickinson, and to say that the surgeon
attending himself would be glad to con
tribute his aid toward Mr. Dickinson's
rcliof. Polite reply, was returned that
Mr. Dickinson's case, was past surgery.
Ju tho course of tho day, General Jaok
bon sont a bottle of wino to Dr. Callot, for
the use of bis patient ... . , , , ,
iiut thero was one gratification which
Jackson could not, even in suon oircum
cumstances, grant him. A very old friend
ot General Jaokson s writes to me thus
"Although ; the '. General had ( been
wounded he did-aot desire it should- be
known until he had left the neighborhood,
and had therefore" concealed it at first
from his own1 friends. His reasons- for
this as he once stated to mo, was. that as
Dickinson ' considered himself the lost
shot in the world, and was certain of
killing him at the first .lire, he did not
want him to have the gratification evon
of knowing that he had touched him."
Peculiarity of De Quincey's Life.
Tho lifo of Do Quinocy has been orio of
vicissitudes Bomcumos strange ana ro
mantic Bomotimes horriblo and somo
times fair and most honorable. He was
born of good parentage, and loft at the
ago of seven years to the oare of four
guardians, one of whom undertook his
oducation and raising, immediately plac
ing him at sohool, whore he attained an
early classical distinction, writing Greek
before he was thirteen with faoility. Two
years after his toacher said of him to a
stranger, "That boy, sir, could harangue
an Athenian audience, better thanyou or
I oould address an English ono. Nor
was his profioienoy in othor classical and
soiontifio studies loss wonderful A mas
tor of Latin a thorough mathematician
an aouto English scholar. But school
life, and especially its associations, illy
suitod him, and early ono mormng his
room was found vacant as air. Hohad bor
rowed 10 from a lady fnond of high
rank, ond had, bofore the gray of morn
ing, set off for the groat city of London,
with littlo puvposo and very vague and
shapoloss hopes. .
When after divers advonturos, painful
and harrowing he roaohod the moving
world of London, he found himsolf, in tho
oonfused and busy thorougfares, a friend
less strangor, destitute of money and
even of comfortablo clothing homoless
and houseless on the brawling town,
walking up and down the throi?gea streets
by day, and the deserted lanes and
byways by night, tho oompanion atfd asso
ciate of the wan and dark beings of ho
manitv, who are wont thus to wander for
needy pittance of beggary or orime, that)
must alone sustain life.
Among these he found a strange associ
ate and friend ono of the many outcasts
of tender age, which ovory city yawns
upon a girl younger than himsolf, whbse
nnlv name was that of Ann a poor,
rained creature, with whom hour after
. . . 1 1 . Al
nour neroamea, eacn rjoanng tneir owu
deep sorrows, and sympathizing tho ono
with tho othor, as they shared the scanty
bread that they chanced to pick up horo
and there children both out on tho great
city of London.
And while thus associated wandering,
starving, sleeping in a great rickety house
on a pallet of straw, whioh the generosity
of a questionable tenant bestowed, bogan
tho first taking of that poison the curse
of his life.
"One night," says ho, "when Ann and
I were naoine slowly alone Oxford-street,
and after a day when I had felt unsually
ill and faint, I requested her to turn off
with mo into fcoho squaro. Thither wo
went; . and we Bat down on tho steps of a
houso, whioh to this day I never pass
without a pang of griof and an inner act
of homage to the spirit of that unhappy
girl, in momory of the noblo deed she
there porformcd. Suddonly as wo sat, I
grew much worse. 1 had been resting
my distracted bond against nor uobodi,
and all at once I sank from her arms and
fell backwards upon tho stone stops.
From the sonsations I then had, 1 folt an
inner conviction, that' if I was not re
vivor! by Bomo powerful stimulus, I should
either have died on tho spot, or should
have at least sunk to a point ol exhaus
tion, from which all roasoont undor my
friondlcss circumstances would havo soon
bcoomo hoDolcss. Then it was, at this
crisis of my fate, that my poor orphan
companion, who had herself met with lit
tle but injuries in this world, stretched
out a saving hand to mo. Uttering a cry
of terror, but without a momont' s delay,
she ran off into Oxford street, and in less
timo than could bo imagined, returned
with a glass of Port wino nnd laudanum,
that acted upon my onipty utomach
(which would at that timo have rejected
all solid food) with an instantaneous
power of rcsusoitation; and for this glass
tho generous girl, without a murmur, paid
out of hor own humblo pittanoo, at a timo,
be it remomborod, when she bad scarco
wherewithal to purohaso tho bare neccs-
ities of lifo, and when sho could not
expect mo over to bo ablo to roimburso
her."
From this timo. or actuated by that
gnawing of hunger at tho stomach which
only opium reliovod, ho bogan tho grow
ing U80 ef that horriblo and life-doaling
poison. At length, during a temporary
separation from poor Ann, bo lost nor,
and sought for hor in vain gono no ono
know whero; gone no ono save hor grateful
associate, cared whero; and atlongth his
guardian discovering him, a reconciliation
was effected, and his return home fol
lowed; his ro-ontrancoi into oollego, his
continued success, his marriage, and
finally his fame, full-blown and command-

roundod by a peaceful, comfortablo homo,
whore ho might right with a calm mind,
and whence he might send, drop by drop,-

But the banc of his existence was a
nevr-ooasing, relentless tormentor, tho
demon, opium, robbed him of its wonder-

In that remarkable book, the "Confess
ions of an English Opium-Eater," aro to
be found some of the most striking
pictures of this great gloomy vico that
one can well conceivo pictures of such
olear outline, suoh marvelous coloring

can only imagine whon the brain is lit
up like a grand theater, ana too vision,

Hohbs was a queer fellow in his day, and
lived in a place somewhoro down in what
is callod Ocean County, New Jersoy.
Tom would drink like a fish, and whon ho
hod takon his fifth glass of a morning, no
man possessed moro shrowdness. . When
in this condition, and in his happiest
mood, Tom ono morning mot a contloman
on horseback, whom ho had nover pui
his eyes upon boforo. As is cuatomary
in tho country, Tom immediately accosted
him: "Ab, horo you aro, my good follow,

Tom. Why, really, sir, 1 beg your par

frosty ma ruing 1 was looking out of a
window in to my father's farm-yard, whero
stood man; y cows, oxen, and horses wait
ing for di -ink. The morning was very
cold; the animals stood mook and quiet,
till ono of the cows wanted to move, and
tried to turn round. In doing this, she
hit against hor neighbor; whereupon that

In five mAnutes, tho late peaceful congre

furious by tUoking and butting caoh other,
my mother smilod, and said, "Soe what
oomos of.kicking when you aro hit! Just so

or myself wore cross or irritable, she
would say, "Take caro, my children; re
