Courier Journal says : Jas. Pcttit, a Deputy
U. S. marshal, arrived there last night
from a point 20 miles from Jackson, the
scene of the late disturbances in Breathilt
county, and reports another collision
Ixtween the parties of Dill Strong and
Jerry Little, which occurred Weduosduy

seven wounded. Jerry Little is among
the killed. The report is confirmed by the

M. 0AMBETTA8 DIEL.
Paris, November 23, 1878.
Yesterday a duel was fought w ith pistols,
at Pleasis-Piquer, Ixtween M. de Foiirton
and M. Ganibcttii. One shot was exchanged,
but fortunately, neither of the combatants
was injured. This satisfactory ending of
what was, all rail, a paltry personal quar
rel, is the general topic of conversation to
day, both in the chamber, nt Versailles,
and at Paris. Attempts were made to ar
range th.' dispute without recourse to arms,
and the entire day preceding the duel was
spent in conversations V-tween the seconds
of the resjicctive parties. At first M. de
Foiirton had instructed M. de la Rorhctte
and M. Lengle to demand a retraction from
M. Ganibctta, or apology, tor the expression
"it is a lie," used by tho hitter in the dis
cussion of Monday last. These gentleman,
however, retired from the scene, having, as
they held, accomplished their mission, and
then M. de Fourton asked M. Rolx'rt Mitch
ell and M. Blin do Bourdon to act for him.
M. Gumbetta chose M. Allain F'arge and M.
Clemenceau, tho left-handed Republican
fencer, whom M. de Cossagnac refused to
tight, for that purpose. Notwithstanding
strong efforts on Isith sides, it was seen from
tho outset, that tho principals would not bo
satisfied with a mere verbal arrangement of
their quarrel. The following is the official
account, signed by the seconds, of what
took phtce yesterday at Pleads-Piquet,
which is near Cliutillou:
In tho sitting of the chamber of deputies,
on Novemlier 18th, 1878, M. do Fourton
made a statement which M. Gsmlietta in
terrupted with the words, "It is a lie." In
consequence of the interference of the pres
ident of the chamber, M. Gainbettu a short,
time afterwards said, "Out of iVeference to
the rules of tho house I withdraw the ex
pression. M. do Fourton, holding that the
offensive words were not withdrawn, so far
as ha was concerned, charged M. M. Bdn
de Bourdon and Robert Mitchell, deputies,
to demand of M. Gumbetta a retraction or
h reparation by arms. On hiaaido M. Gum
U tLi asked M. M. AIIhIii Fargo and Clem
ena.tn to put themselves in communication
with thn gentlemen who wero acting for
M. de Foiirton. Tho four soronds held a
I meeting tit which M. de Fotiiin' friends
insisted on u ri Unction from M. liiiuilietln
of the winds rompluineil of, holding that
tho withdrawal iiiude in the Chamber of
Deputies rcndi red the original exclamation
still more. olL-usivc, Under ihese circum
Ktanet'B it was agreed by the four wcouds
tliut a hostile meeting wn inevitable. It
was arranged that M. do Foiirton should
have tho choice of weapons, and ho nanied
pistols. Among tho conditions laid down
for the meeting it was stipulated that the
duel should tuko place with rifle saloon
pistols at a distance of thirty-tire yank
and tliut only ono shot should bo ex
changed. After the pistol, wen- discharged
tho seconds shook hands, M. Gambettii and
M. tie Foiirton saluted each other, and thus
ended what will lie regarded in 'he ftiturv
as k memorable encounter. -
It his high time that a stop should be
put by legal means to conflict which oscil
late between the ridiouloiu and tniiic.
The life of a statesman is far too valuable
to bo imperil! ed at the bidding of the first
individual who choses to pick a quarrel
with him, but it is clear that public opin
ion is not against the practice and nothing
but new legislation on the subject will put
a stop to tho evil. In this particuhir esse
M. Gunilicttu was certainly justilled in lining
'an unparliancniary expression, and it
would have been Uy no means beneath his
'r&jnity to withdraw it but there is no doubt
that hv is a strong and perfectly justifiable
personal ' Wiiinus against M. tin Foiirton,
who was Minister of the Interior when the
government convicted the great orator
for hitving declared that Marshul MacMa
hon had only onojof two alternatives open
to him in the dilemma injn which bo- had
been thrust by evil iiiiisollonu Ihu usser-

moreover, M. Gambetti was from that mo- i
ment so powerful that the thing was out of ..' w yw " .""
. n , , editor is expr.cted to io morn for nothing,
the question. M.Gambetta naturally looks t0 mor(!,fr the money, to cxpeci.

responsible for tho unpardonitble injustice I favors done.than the lawyer, tioctor. clfrgy

conceded that M. de Fourton 's speech of
tho other dny was provocation in th" ex
treme. He deliberately accused M.Gam
betta of having at Aix "declared war
against all Frenchmen who wer" not ani
mated by the old Republican taith." Now
M. Gauds tta's words, quoted by an even
ing paper, were these : "Then' is n exclu
siveness in our Republic. Ail can enter.
Our arms are; opened to all. Wo have t m
passionate a tlesire to repair tlio losses of
France to exclude any Frenchman from tho
work of tho restoration of tiur country."
These noble and patriotic words certainly
do not bear the interpretation put upon
them by tho ex-minister, nnd it is easy to
understand M. Gamhctta's indignation at
hearing himself thus misrepresented. If
the unparliamentary language of M. Gani
bctta cannot be defended, his behaviour in
consenting to risk his life merely because '
M. tie Fourton chose to take up a hasty
word, is still less to be excused. His posi- !
tion is too high, and his existence too valu
nblc, to bo lightly inqwriled. Ho holds
the greater p.ut of France in the hollow of;
his hand, and it is not for smh a
man to take up it primx ution w hich
might be systematically renewed by a uum
Iht of confederates, determined to persevere
until they had wreaked their vengeance on
the popular tribune. M. de Fourton can
not. however, be reckoned nmong these ban
dits; indeed, the combatants of yesterday
were well matched. M. de Fourton is pr-
ticularly short sighted, nnd M. Oambetta
has only one eye. No wonder that on a:i
eHtinrrlw fnw nw.rnlnrr nelf h.. nt
nv ' orj is
combatants succeeded in hitting tho other.
Both must be held to bo for the future n
freed from the charge of braggiulocia as j often it happens that, although wo have wit
from that of cowardice. In order to lead nessed thn ravages of disease in tho case re'
people to imagine that tho dillie.ulry had ' others, wo disregard his warning signals in
been atranged, M. Oambetta spent tho pre- j our own. It is only when we find him bVe
ceding evening at tho ministry of ngricul- j to face with us that we really perceive how
ture, whore ho dined, while M. do Fourton grim ho is. Then, perchance, when it is ton
passed his at the opera. Now that M.
Ganibctta "a fait ses preuves," it Is to be
hoped that he will proclaim Ids intention of
never again "going out," and that he will
thus place it beyond the power of any polit
ical antagonist! to get him out of tho way.
To show how wodded Frenchmen are to
their habit of duelling, it is only necessary
to read tho "Ordre" of this evening, in
which the admirable suggestions made in
yesterday's "Temps," to settle all differ
ences by parliamentary regulations, nro
held up to ridicule. It is to ho feared, in
deed, that th w u! 1 not be sufficient,
and that nothing would suffice but a long
term of imprisonment, administered with
out merry, to any one convicted of tho send
