THE FIGHTING EDITOR OF ARKANSAS.
' There never was an age in the annate of
time, or a country on the surface of the
globe, where dueling prevailed lo such an
extent as it did in the early history of Ar
kansas. Nc one public man ever attained
to any considerable eminence, either pro
fessional or political in that purple land
where law insured not life, , without first
passing through the . terrible ordeal of
blood anu bra on the miscalled tela of
honor. The Rectors, Conways, Critten
dens, Sevieie, Johnsons, Borlands every
name of note that can' be mentioned all
furnished bo many examples of this strange
yet genera, rule. Even the . learning and
eloquence of tbe mild and merciful lawyer
and poet, Albert Piko, to achieve influence
or. distinction, availed not until he had
proved his prowess in mortal combat with
a redoubted foe. -.;
In addition to the usual causes opera-
ling ori nil frontiers to produce such ' a
stage of society, another one existed in the
stormy sea of polities. The Whigs and
Democrats were nearly equal in numerical
force, and never did hostile factions dis
play more intense activity and concentra
ted bitterness. On thesiump, in the fpiuhi,
and through the press, everywhere, and
by" aU possible rueauc, they" 'hurlfid-their,
furious anathemas against each other in
terms Or measureless wrath and denunioa
lion. As a necessary consequence, none
save men of the highesreourage dared as
pire to be leaders in parties where such a
position must be won and maintained at
the flaming mouth of the pistol or before
the fearful point of the bowie knife and
Oiie horrible peculiarity marked the
course of such personal conflicts they al
most always terminated fatally to the in
dividuals engaged in the unnatural strife.
No combatant thought his fair ' fame vin
dicated by merely winging his antagonist;
nothing would suffice but the caup de grace
of death. Indeed, the universal opinion
of the community regarded bloodless en
counters as shameful in the extreme
worse, even, than positive cowardice; and
as every candidate for popular favor had
prepared himself well by long practice, to
use the last great argument, which closed
all discussions and silenced the most stub
born objector, very few meetings occurred
wl ere the spectators were not gratified by
witnessing the slaughter of one or both of
the ambitious rivals.
As may be easily imagined, the post of
an editor was the most perilous of all
others; and hence, the opposing factions
respectively selected the entire crops to
manage their journals from the most des
perate adventurers that coulil be mustered,
and paid them accordingly to do their own
ngbling and that of nil their anonymous
correspondents. In some instances thous
ands of dollars were expended as .mnre
premium's, besides the ofler of enormous
salaries, to secure the pen and pistol of the
most notorious duelists in the south-west.
I could specify one man," an ex-Senator,
who owed his rise to this very - circum-
stance,: ".-,..:;. v- v.i . i- ..
However, leaving these vazue cenerali-
ties; the following brief sketch of striking
and feat particulars will afford a tolerable
conception of the stem trials incidental to
' Early in tbe month of July, 1839, Israel
Woods, the proprietor of the Arkansas
"Demosrat," was seated in his sanctum,
busily employed in the manufacture of
wiitien slanoer for his weekly issue. A
singlo glance at this person was truly
enough to make aq .ordinary beholder
tremble with apprehension; for you might
search '.he wide world without finding his
superior in physicial p6wer and agility.
In the prime of youth and robust health,
he seeaied a mighty mass of iron bones and
elasl c sinew strong as the mythic Milo
when be rent the ancient oaks. His hands
looked like sledge hammers, and bis
countenance bore the impress of reckless
bravery a sort of mute defiance and chal
lenge to all the heroes of the human race.
His eyes were of a peculiar tint that
fierce reddish yellow which resembles the
iris of the eagle, of all colors considered
the sign of the most dangerous characters.
. Indeed, be had acquired his title to be
placed foremost in the highest class of the
ngtiting chivalry jjy darins feats per
formed in all principal cities of the south
from Charleston to New Orleans. Never
theless, he had more sense than to rely for
impunity on the terror which bis name so
irresistibly inspired. His office was an
armory. A huge doubled barrelled shot
gun hung a short distance above his bead,
;f.A ..!., M -.K V.J
and a half dozen loaded pistols laid beside
him on the able, while the silver1 hik'ofn
dagger peeped out from beneath "bis vest,
lie was ready for immediate battfe' ) who
ever might be the assailant,1 ' ' " f "
" Suddenly footsteps resounded 'on ' tbe
floor behiud him, and a stout,; dark-featured
mm, of middle age,' with long flow
ing hair of raven hue, and flashing black
eyes, rushed in(A the room in a state of
wild and almost phrensied exoftemer.'t, and
threw himself into a seat. v " ' , " '
' The editor, at fisst, anticipating a hos
tile visit, cooked a revolver, but instantly
perceiving his mistake deposited the wea
pon at his elbow, exclaiming as he did so
-ii"What now, Elias Wharton?' Is there
a, new tempest brewing la the politioal'at
mosptwsre?" r A- -,vi'; 3 ' V '
"J08t look here!" ejaculated the other,
with an infuriate gesture, pointing to a
oolumn of the Arkansas "Whig," which
he held up, with the ink not yet dry on
the paper. . . . j
Woods snatched the article from the
fingeis of his friend, and devouring the
contents with a rapid glance, uttered a
malediction too horrible lor record while
his; very lips turned white with rage' and
disappointment. ; ,.? v., -t ;. ;
"Is not that too bad?" vociferated
Wharton, clinching the interrogatory with
a bUU more dreadful oath.-. ,, ' . ...'.
"Who could have expected, in the meri
dian of Li title Rock, to see a . phillipio
against duelling?" ,. v ,r5 .'. i
"And an appeal to the religious preju
dices of the people?'.' added the editor,
frowning till his brows met in a frightful
arch. ,. :! ' ..'-i. -1. - '-i 'm
, -"Yes, and the cunning scoundrel has
managed to lay all the blame' of combats
on .the-Democrats, from the first settle
ment of the country!," affirmed the other.
i"And he has given the history of all
my encounters, from roy stabbing a sopho
more of the University of Virginia, (ill my
rifle-battle with doctor Wilson!" com
plained Woods. ',1,-X , '
"And that , tirade alone will do more
injury to our party than anything that has
happened for years," remarked Wharton
"Who ran the' writer be?" asked the
editor, in a musing tone. , " - : ' ,
"1 cannot so much as imagine, re
turned the friend.'" "It is not the learned
and lugubrious style of Pike, or tbe showy
declamation of Absalom Fowler; It must
be soma new hand in the' prolific field of
Whiigery'." . ?..';'.; vt'"' '
"What shall we do to spike the new
gun in the battery? for, unless (hat be ac
complished we shall lose the election,"
said die editor, with a look of sore embar-
'You1 must demand the author,' and
provoke him to au interviewl", suggested
Wharton. , '.:'
"And sunnose tliev should eive ud the
name of Fen I Noland, as they did on the
last similar occasion? You know it would
be suicide to fight ' the author of Pete
Whetstone! " answered Woods with a
shudder. '.-.! , . ,
At the moment, William, the elder
brother of Elias Whar'on, entered the
sanctum, exclaiming "1 have discovered
the writer of the article signed by "Vio
dex." . - v(; ..... :.
"Who is , he? who is he?'.' asked the
political comrades, in , the same eagerly
impetuous breath. ' -,r'i "
"You would never conjecture in a thou
sand guesses," replied the other. , ,
"Let us know at once, do not keep us
"Levi Coleman, the young Methodist
"ihe devil! , shouted the astonished
editor. , . , ,
"The devil?" echoed his sympathizing
friend. "How did you learn so strange a
fact?" , .V V.r-v "; .
''From the foreman in the 'Whig' office
in the strictest confidence, however, so
that you must nst hint at the -source of
the infoimaiion." .
"And now what is to be done?" they
all inquired together,
" 1 he case is complicated with . serious
difficulties," observed Elias Wharton;
"for if we let the matter pass in silence,
the rascally hypocrite will become bolder
in his attack; and if we punish his inso
lence as it deserves, every Methodist vote
in the State will probably be cast against
us.",,;, ., .... ; ..
After reflecting a few moments, the
journalist . sprung to bis fet, erring out
tunoudly -VHU-b.iU t v aaUib, . tuitl
that the members of his own sect will dis
own him!" And he hastily buckled on
his belt, and filling it with pistols, rushed
forth into the street.'' .
As chance would have it, the youthful
minister was at that instant walking by the
door. He was a slender pale-faced man,
with a fair complexion, bright blue eyes,
and a countenance of profound and ever
poetic thought,' , apparently incapable of
raising a shadow of aggression, or so much
as harming a fly.
, ''Are you the author of Vindex,' in the
recent number of the Arkansas Whig?"
demanded Woods, advancing so near to
his intended victim that their beads al
most touched, .. , ,
"I am," answered Coleman in his clear
silvery, voice, without, betraying the faint
est token of alarm . , ,,, f
i "Then thus I chastise your impudence
and falsehood!", shouted the enraged edi
tor, ; seizing ine clergyman a, nose with a
grasp of iron, and epittiug scornfully in
biamouth; ;. -
"If I did not tear lo have tbe foul stains
of your, pollut'ng blood pa the now pure
record of my conscience, T would , teach
you a lesson never to be forgotten uutil
your dying daylV remarked Coleman, as
calmly as in a prayer meeting,
"Awty with you, palttoon and liar!?
ordered Woods, administering several con
temptuous kicks, as tbe other retreated
slowly from the inglorious field. :...'.,

No one, therefore, wondered ?wheri-fie
withdrew from tlie-fellowship of the Meth
odist denomination, and' shut himself up
in the solitude of his piivate apartment, as
many supposed in a condition bordering
on mental derangement. ; The following
week however revealed ;the fruits of his
meditations in an unexpected manner that
startled the whole city.., Another article
came out in, Arkansas v Whig," and this
time over Levi Coleman's own signature,
which excelled any satire ever before seen
iu the south-west for $wfulr .boundless
bitter denunciation., Every swif lure of the
ex-preacher's pen seemed,, like the flash of
an internal sword every word . pierced
like the thrust of a poisoned dagger.. , The
editor of the ; "Demoorat" and . all - his
friends indeed, his whole party, and even
his family were subjected to the .penalty
of -summary massacre. .. He dragged jnto
light all their private as well an political
6ins, and accused them ,ot , imaginary
crimes, that caused every reader to turn
white with, borror-t, , :c, ,. ;. ?L
. Then, as soon as the newspaper was is
sued, he left his room', and promenaded
the public .thoroughfare with . the proud
and, lofty tread of a hero, accompanied
by Fent Noland, both thoroughly armed.
A challenge from Israel Woods, then per
haps the most deadly duelist in the world,
was the immediate consequence, and the
youth accepted it, to com Gat , with pistols
at ten paces! y,. ,-,.,.). ,; r
The interview.. took place the next
morning at sunrise, on the bank of the Ar-
and Bever-4i0j a gisjttei.eoncj)arse of jpec
tutors swarm to behold a similar scene,.
At the appointed hour the seconds,
Elias Wharton for Woods, and Fent No
land, for Coleman, stationed their princi
pals in position, and the anxious throng
actually trembled in fearful expectancy ol
the brutal signal.!. Indeed, tbe proximity
of the foes was so close that the escape of
either with life seemed altogether hopeless.
In the niflanwhilti a wonderful change
had been wrought in the aspect of the for;
merly mild and merciful minister.- His
blue eyes looked luminous as ere Dans,
and the thoughtful sadness of his counte
nance had been replaced by a perpetual
smile, fierce, scorching, murderous, as ap
peared to have the power of blasting the
gazer's sight, like the. flash of lightning
from a thunder cloud. ' 1
As Fent Noland left his friend, he whis
pered in his ear: '. "Be sure and aim at
the enemy's head, and fire at the word; it
is your only chance." ....
At length the signal sounded, and both
weapons roared apparently together, yet,
in fact, Coleman's had the precedence by
some half a second, and that diminutive
fragment of duration made all the differ
ence of an entire eternity in the result.
Woods fell to the earth like a stone
dropped from tie ban I, with a ballet hole
through his right temple, ; while his own
ball whistled the fourth of an inch above
his adversay 'b head. From that day the
fame and fortune of Levi Coleman might
be considered firmly established. He was
installed forthwith in the editorial chair of
the Arkansrs Whig, and wielded pen and
pistol withrthe same triumphant success,
until suddenly the angel oi pesiuence cm
short his career.
