Gordon gooa lack to the old time and
drag-i to light the numerous qnarrela be
tween the hot lloodod congresvimen of
A quarnJ then raoant something more
than a d'wplay of fioiieuffa. First among
the C-ongreMiohol brawlers, in point of
originality and time, was Matthew Lyon,
who attacked Grunrold, of Connecticut,
with a fire-fthovcl during the open eewion.
in 1793. Contemporary records aiort
that thin waa one of the man intercnting
differences of opinion ever seen in the
House, but the chronicler neglects to say
which one of the combatants carried on
the honors of the occasion. There were
in thoxj early day al-so many challenges
bctwtx-n eminent etaterhiiM-n fwr words
ppokt n in and out of Congrew. DeWitt
Clinton fought a duel with John Swart
hout in 1802, and another with Gn. Day
brouk, of .New Jersey, in 1803. The
famous dud between Hamilton and Burr
cflcurml in 1804, Henry Clay foujrbt
the first time with Humphrey Marshall
in 1808, and the second time with John
Randolph in 1826, vindicating in this
manner his honor against the statement
that his vote for John Quincy Adams
was " the coalition of a Puritan with a
blackleg." Thomas II. Benton and An
drew Jackson both fought duels. Mr.
Cilley, of Maine, was killed in a duel by
Graves, of Kentucky, in 1838. A num
ber of duels and personal encounters,
more or less serious, grow out of the
Lrooks-cumncr affair. Uesides the phys
ical injuries inflicted upon Mr. SumniV,
from which ho never recovered, a chal
lenfrc pae.-H'd between Anson Burlingnme
and Brooks. The weapons named were
rifles and the placo Navy Inland, above
Niaeara Falls. Brooks refused to keen
the appointment, alleging that it would
not be Hf? for him to travel through the
North in the then excited state of public-
feeling. Burlingame was on hand ready
to pnxed. lie gained great popularity
for his conduct in this affair; but the
Puritan sense of Massachusetts, when it
had time to cool, was against him, and
he lost his election a few years afterwards,
though not solely on this account. He
had another strious encounter with Keitt,
of South Carolina, BurkaJalo, of Mis
.isaippi, who assisted Brooks in his as
sault upon Sumner, waa a noted fighter
in his day. In' one scrimmage in the
House he took hold of a spittoon as an
offensive weapon, and had his wig pulled
off. I'luuh did the scene up in a cartoon.
He wus at last killed at Gettysburg.
A memorable quarrel, which induced
! .reparation, for a duel, that between
letter-tori Davis and BLssell, of Illinois.
The affair fell through, but it added
something to the reputation of BLssell,
who was alWward ejected Governor of
Illinois, and had Ids title disputed on
the xro of his disqualification, as a
party to a duel under the luw. Putter,
of Wisconsin, and Fryer, of Virginia,
had an affair of honor, which was ter
minated by the selection of bowio-kniven
as the weapons by the former. Pryor
retrnated, asserting that no gentleman
could fiht with bowte-knivt-8, and Pot
ter was known to fume as bowie-knife
Poticr. Diar, of New York, gave the
lie to Mead, of Virginia, in debate, but
no duel followed. Foote, of Mississippi,
inruck Fremont in the ante-room of the
Senate Chamber, but smoothed the
matter down by on ample apology. He
had a more K'rious difficulty with Ben
ton, upon whom he drew a revolver in
the open sennte. Five men caught hold
of Foote, and four seized Benton. The
former was disarmed, and tlw latter cried
out; "Let the astWin shoot !" Senator :

1 It is not strange that Mr. Evans doeen't
make money off his farm. Horace
Greeley and II. W. Beechcr failed because
they were not content to let their work
men run the farm, but needs put their
own absurd ideas into practice. Mr. Ev
arts fails because his manager is unable
to understand him and gets confused just
as soon as Mr. Evarts makes his appear
ance and begins to talk. Mr. Evarts is
not foolish enough to trust himself with
the manual labor of the farm. There are
worse things than that kind of meddling.
List year, for instate, Mr. Evarts said
to his manager, the first morning of the
Patsey, it beot&vs necessary, in view
of the surperabui dance of foreign and
deleterious elemens among those green
and waving uprights, to place the charger
in front of the uunail, with the branch

.Senators' Ages.--Figures that
Will Surprlsi Their Friends.
We have Uken considerable pains to
collect and oompib the ages of senators!.
One familiar with their faces and figures
will be very much wrprised with the re
sult, as some of the oldest looking men
are the youngest in years, and some of
the mont aged slow leas than many of
their younger oolk-agues the " corroding
hand of care " and time. The followini;
' lii-t will show the names of senators, and
the years in which thov were born :
1812 Armtrvng. Christianey.
J 8 1 3 Thurruin, Kirk wood.
1815 Anthony. I'
181 C Ikjw, Eaton, Howe, Kernan.

1818 Harris, Johnston, Bsmum.
1820 Vice President Wheeler.
1821 haron, Withers.
1822 Beck, Dennis.

1827 Windom, Ferry.
1828 Edmunds, Bayard, Voorhees.
1829 Conkling, Coke, Allison.
1830 Blaine, Jones (Nevada), Mer

1832 Gordon, Garland, Jones, (Flor
ida.) 1833 Ingalls, Mcllierson, Mitchell,
Wallace, Davis, of Illinois, and
McCreery, of Kentucky, decline to give
their ages. Edmunds is the oldest look
ing man one would take him to bo a
centenarian, at least, and ho could sit
very appropriately f ir the wandering
Jew. rerry, who sits behind him, and
is one year older, looks young enough to
le his son ; so does Booth, who is two
years older. lkr'y is the youngest
man who ever Mt in the senate; ho has
been there nearly five years, and came in
at the age of thirty ; as young as is al
lowed by the constitution. Vice lVes
ident Wheeler, BiXiih, McDonald, An-'
thony, Burnside, Chaffee, and Cameron,
of Pennsylvania, are unmarried.
Why Americans Wear Arms.
It is related that Col. Ingersoll onw
gave an ingenious explanation, at a Paris
ian dinner party, of the American prac
tice of carrying weapons. A French
guest turning to Ingersoll exclaimed:
Will the Colonel explain this matter ?
Why, Messieurs, I can travel all over
Franoe armed only with a bodkin." Tho
Colonel rose to his feet and replied:
"The explanation is this: A French
man's rights are so few in .number, and
so insignificant in character, that they
can be enforced with a bodkin, or, for
that matter, with a toothpick. But in
America a citizen's rights are so numer
ous and important that he needs a whole
arsenal to defend them. Hence tho prac
tice of carrying weapons in America."

Raise More Poultry,
The TcUgraph usee the following
sound arguments to induce its readers to
produce more poultry: "We have often
recommended the raising of poultry by
farmers within easy reaching distance of
the city markets, and have no reason now
to change the recommendation, but to
repeat it. If properly conducted it
would become one or the most profitable
branches of the farm. The French givo
special attention to poultry, etc. It al
ways has been to them an important
source of revenue. The total value of
chickens sold in Franoe, including eggs
and capons, is estimated at (80,000,000
per annum, which if equally divided
among the population would be at the
rate ofJ2.K5 ipr ejery mn WQmaft-and,
child in the country. 'There Is ni tea
eon why tho business here should not
assume greater proportions than it do.i,
as there is at all times a demand for
every variety of good poultry and fresh
eg.i at remunerative prices. This is a
branch of the farmer's industry that can
be managed by the women and boys of a
family. It requires but little capital.
The chicken-houses should be incxpen
sire but sufficiently roomy, cleanly and
wcll-vcntilated. A large portion of the
food can be supplied by the offal of the
fana ef almost every description, which
can be readily economized for the pur
pose. The time required can be maiuly
what may be called oil-time. Tho pleas
ure of raising chickens, ducks, turkeys,
geese, guinea-fowls, and even pigeons
(with squabs at forty cents per pair),
should pay for all the outlay in money or
labor. As we say, there is a constant
demand for poultry at good prices, and
there is not a season in tho year when
they can not be disposed of freely. We
knuvr that upon many farms poultry-raising
is not regarded with favor, as con
suming time that should be applied to the
gcacral affairs of the farm. But it is a
mistake and we commend a thoughtful
consideration of the subject."
Another even more powerful induce
ment would be to iuvent some remedy
for chicken cholera and " gapes," which
cause such discouraging mortality among
our poultry, both old and young. Two
of our bent and most successful poultry
raisers, " who never lose a single chicken
from gapes," tell us that they attribute
their exemption wholly to the fact thai
as soon as taken off the roost they pease
the heads of all the chickens. The ar
gument is that the worm which produces
the trouble in the wimt-pipe ot the bird
hatches on the top of its head and passes
in at the nostrils.

The long evonings, which follow the
short days, are made, in some families,
the happiest of all happy times. The
cares of the day are ended, the mother's
resting time has come; the father has
dropped all sorts of business worries and
perplexities, and the whole family throw
themselves with zest ioto tho innocent
pleasures of the homo circle.

huU'W remember that tho pleasant even
ings at home are strong antidotes to the
practice of looking for enjoyment abroad,
and seeking for pleasures in by and for
bidden places, for relaxation and rocrea
tion will be indulged in somehow by most
men, and happy are they who find in the
home circle the diversion they need. A
lively game, an interesting book read
aloud, or, in musical families, a new song
to be practiced, will furnish pastime that
will make an evening pass pleasantly.
A littlo forethought during the day, a
little pulling of wires that need not ap

and different ways and means may be
provided for making the evening piss

with pleasant anticipation. We visited
once in a largo family where it was the
duty of each sister in turn to provide the
evening's occupation, and there was a
pleassnt rivalry .between them as to
whose evenings should be most enjoyable.
The brothers entered fully into the
spirit of the simple home entertainments,
and wero loth to be obliged to spend an

An Irish llomance.
Mr. Alexander Sullivan relates, in his
sketches of " New Ireland," an interest
ing romance connected with the mar
riage of Kevin O'Doherty, one of thy
f romincnt members of the branch of the
tepeal party called "Young Ireland."
O'Doherty was, at the time of the out
break of 1843, a young medical student
in Dublin. Ho was an active contribu
tor to tho Kation, tuo organ of the Re
pealers, in which the principles of tho
party wero most openly and earnestly
promulgated. Among ihe women who
furnished rebel verses for the seditious
sheet was a Miss Eva Mary Kelly, tho
young daughter of a County Galaway
eentleman. O'Doherty waa first attracted
by the verses of the young poetess, and
soon after was attracted by herself, Tho
love of the two sped smoothly until
O'Doherty was arrested, anions others,
as a conspirator agaitut the British Gov
ernment. When his case was brought
to trial, the jury twice disagreed, aud be
fore his third arraignment he waa offered
a virtual pardon a merely nominal sen
tence if he would plead guilty.
1 lie young lover sent kr Ins sweet-
henrt to visit him in his prison, and in
formed her of the proposition. " It may
seem as if I did not feel the certainty of
losing you, perhaps forever," said ho:
" but I don't like this idea of pleading
guilty, bar, what snail l dor "Do!
answered the noble-hearted girl ; " why,
bo a man, and face the worst. I'll wait
for you, however lone the sentence may
be." " Next day," writes Mr. Sullivan,
"fortune deserted Kevin. The jury
found him guilty. The Judge assigned
him ten years' transportation. Eva'
was allowed to Bee him once more iu the
cell to say adieu. She whispered in hLi
ear, ' Bo you faithful, I'll wait.' And
she did. Years (ltd by, aud the yonng
exile was at length allowed once moro to
tread Irh:h soil. Two days after ho
landed at Kingstown 'Eva' waa his
bri '.e." O'Doherty is to-day a distin
guished member ol the Queensland Leg
islature. Words of Wisdom.
