THE FIELD OF HONOR.
Dueling at Weehawken, N. J., in the Olden
Time.
The' extraordinary series of " duels
which for so many years gave Weehawken
an evil celebrity, began in 1799. In that
year a rumor had spread through this
State that the Holland Land Company
had cancelled a bond for $20,000 against
Aaron Burr, in consideration of certain
legislative services. Burr was a promi
nent . awyer, had . been - United States
Senator for six years, and was an aspirant
for, the Presidency at the approaching
election. : He had become uie target oi
Host 01 personal ana political enemies.
' IUIIHI UW W IVWM - MKr " f
M t i 1 1 1 in -; MYranmt frrm-
port of the rumor mentioned had been
made dt Jonn a. unurcn, me Droiner
in-law of Alexander Hamilton, which
were reported to CoL Burr. He chal
lenged Church, and the challenge was
accepted. The parties met at Weekawken
on -Monday evemnsr. Dept. i, aoout sun
set. It was Burr's first duel, and the
first of the combats which, afterward
made that narrow shelf among the cliffs
a dark and bloody ground. -
Church's second was Mr. Hammond,
of New York. Judge Burke, of South
Carolina, acted for Burr. Before reacn
ing the ground. Burr explained to his
second that tne balls Had Deen cast too
email for his pistols, and that he had
provided chamois leather and grease
with which to make them ht. ' Ihe prin
cipals had been placed in position ten
paces apart, when Burr observed his
second trying to finish the loading of his
pistol. He was making laborious efforts
to drive the ramrod in with astone. Fi
nally, having apparently finished, he
handed the pistol to his waiting prin
cipal.
Burr, with great coolness, then drew
the rammer and felt for the ball. " It is
not driven home," he said to his sec
ond.
"I know it," said the Judge, wiping
the perspiration from his brow : "1 for
got to grease the leather. But see, your
man is ready. Don t keep mm waiting.
Just take a crack as it is, and I'll grease
the next. "
The word was then given and both the
combatants fired. Mr. Church was un
harmed, but the ball from his pistol
passed through Burr's coat. The pis
tols were about to be reloaded for an
other shot, when Mr. Church made an
apology acceptable to the seconds ; the
principals shook hands, and all returned
to the city.
In 1801, the continued political ani
mosities of the time seem to have been
the real occasion of two successive en
counters, one cf which had a fatal re
sult Mr. George Eacker, a native of
Palatine, New York, was a promising
young lawyer, 27 years of age, practicing
in this city ; and on the Fourth of July
of that year he had delivered a public
oration which attracted much favorable
attention. He was a political friend of
Col. Burr. On Friday evening, Nov.
20, he hail visited the Park Theater in
company with Miss Livingston and his
friend Mr. Lawrence. Cooper was on
the stage in the part of Frederick, in
"Lover's Vowb. The afterpiece was a
pantomime. The account of what fol
lowed in the boxes is the narration of
Mr. Lawrence, and was published in the
American Citizen and Advocate of
Nov. 21 at the time.
In an adjoining box were Philip Ham
ilton, eldest Bon of the statesman, and
Mr. Price, son of Stephen Price, the
lessee of the theater. They made some
audible and offensive remarks about
Eacker's former oration, which he heard
but avoided noticing. Soon afterward
theyoung men entered his box and com
menced some sarcastic remarks, which
compelled Eacker to step into the lobby
for the purpose of remonstrating with
them. As he passed out ho said "it was
abominable to be thus publicly insulted
by a set of rascals." An altercation in
the lobby ensued, and an assault seemed
imminent, bnt it was prevented by
others. Eacker desired to avoid a brawl
in the theater, and proposed retiring to
some private place, which they did. The
interview was without any amicable re
sult, and Eacker returned to his party
at the theater, telling his opponents he
could be found at No. 50 Wall street.
Within the hour he reserved a message
from young Price, requesting him to ap
point a time and place for a meeting.
In the meantime young Hamilton had
hurried off to consult Messrs. David S.
Jones and John B. Church about the af
fair. With them a message was prepared
requiring from Eacker an explanation of
the offensive expressions he had used.
He received it that night, and merely re
plied that after he had finished the af.
fair with Price he would be ready to
receive any communication from Ham
ilton. On Sunday, Nov. 23, at noon, Eacker
and Price met at Weekawken. Mr.
Lawrence and James Lynch were tiie
seconds. Three shots were exchanged
without harm, and then the seconds in
terposed. The principals, however,
desired another shot, :md agreed that
after that the affair would be settled.
The fourth shot being without effect, a
reconciliation followed, and Price re
marked that " Eacker wasmcha damned
lath of a fellow that he might shoot all
day without hitting him."
jt On being informed of the issue of this
meeting, that same afternoon Hamilton
sent a communication to Eacker. In
consequence of this the parties were at
Weehawken on the next afternoon about
3 o'clock. Cooper, the actor was the
second of Eacker, and David B.JcneB
acted for Hamilton.
Everything being ready, the word was
given. There was no report fronveither
side. The principals stood prepared,
bnt without firing. Eacker had re
solved to wait for Hamilton's fire. Ham
ilton reserved his shot, it was said, by a
command of his father.
At length, Eacker took a careful aim
and fired. It was bnt a second before
Hamilton, The latter, it was said, fired
in the air. Hamilton felL shot through
the body. He was removed to the city,
and died early the next morning. In
18U4 .hacker died of consumption, and
was buried in St. raul s (Jhurchyard,
where his headstone may now be seen.
In December following, two Btnplmea
of twenty met on the same ground, after
dark, and fired at each Other without in
jury. The affair was so trivial that it is
unnecessary to mention tneir names.
One of the most notable duels on rec
ord was that between DeWitt Clinton
and John Swartwout on July 81, ' 1802.
Clinton was ranged with Hamilton in
politics, and Bwartwout was one of the
nrmest inenas 01 tiun. jut. -unman,
in an unguarded moment, had used cer-
uun expressions relative 10 jut. owan
wout, which drew from the latter a de
mand for reparation. Vol William o.
Smith delivered the missive, and ex
plained that the offensive epithets were
linr nVHinrlrpl nnii villain !" Mr.
Clinton recollocted applying the first
two. but refused apoloccy, writing to Mr.
Swartwont that he thought they were
deserved, because the latter had imputed
unworthy motives to him in the Burr
controversy. At the same time he Bent
for Mr. Bichard Biker to act as his
friend.
Mr. Biker consulted with Colonel
Smith, and they proposed a settlement
by mutual withdrawals of offensive
words. Mr. Swartwout, however, re
quired a written apology, and tins Mr.
Clinton peremptorily refused. The sec
onds then prepared for a meeting, and
arranged a code of ten articles, contain
ing the most minute provisions to be
observed m tne all air. mi. unnton, on
his part, had mentally resolved to intro
duce another item in tne proceedings,
which he did. as will be seen,
On Saturday, July 31, at o p. m., tne
parties reached Weehawken, accompa
nied by two sureeons, Drs. John H.
Douglass and Isaac Ledyard. Each of
the seconds afterward gave his version
of the scene, of which the following is
the substance:
The parties being ready, CoL Smith
distinctly gave the word, and they both
fired without effect. Mr. Clinton then
varied the proceedings by requesting his
second to ask whether his opponent was
satisfied; stating that he bore him no
resentment, and would be willing to
meet him aeain in fnendsnip. Mr.
Swartwout was not satisfied, and' the
pistols were again loaded.. A second
time they were fired without result, and
Mr. (Jlmton s question and oner were
repeated, and again rejected.
For the third time the pistols were
prepared and delivered. Col. Smith
gave the word. Here Mr. Biker says he
observed that Mr. Swartwout faced
round before the word, which drew Bi
ker's remonstrance. Swartwout fired
before Clinton, and the latter was shot
through the coat. Again the previous
offer was made and refused, unless ac
companied by an apology, .'which, in
writing was then presented to Mr. Clin
ton for his signature. - He read it and
returned it, saying he would fire all night
rather than ask pardon.
The principals now, with noticeable
coolness, stood ready for the fourth shot.
At the word they fired with more deliberation
in their aim, Mr. Clinton being
moment after his opponent. ' Swartwout
received a ball in his leg, just below the
knee, but he stood firm, though pale.
His surgeon hastened to him, and, while
the seconds were busy with the pistols,
Dr. Douglass quietly extracted the ball
from the other side of his leg, contrary
to an article of the code.
Mr. Biker, for the fourth time, repeat
ed Mr. Clinton's question, "Are you
satisfied?" Mr. Swartwout, standing
erect, said, " I am not. It is useless to
repeat the question." ,
"Then," said Mr. Clinton, "I beg
you all to be witness that I have no e j
mity to Mr. Swartwont, and I am com
pelled to shoot at a man whom I do not
wish to hurt. ' But I will sign no paper.
I will not dishonor myself."
So they fired the fifth shot, and Mr.
Swartwout received a ball in the same
leg just above the ankle. "I am not
satisfied," said he, in reply to the usual
question; "proceed with another shot."
At this moment, Dr. Ledyard. who
had ascended from the river, appeared
at the edge of the rocky platform, and
cried, " Mr. Clinton, don't fire again.
Mr. Swartwont needs our assistance."
Mr. Clinton stepped toward him and
said, "Will it bo right to fire again ?"
" By no means," said the doctor. Mr.
Clinton then asked Mr.- Biker what he
should do. His second, after a mo
ment's reflection, said to CoL Smith,
"Mr. Clinton shall not tiro again."
Swartwont's second then said, " There is
nothing further left for you now bnt to
have your wounds dressed."
It was said that Clinton approached
Swartwout as he sat on a stone under
the hands of the surgeon, and said, "
am sorry I have hurt you so much."
Then to CoL Smith he remarked, "
wish I had his principal here" meaning
CoL Burr " I will meet him when he
pleases." That meeting, however, was
not to fall to the lot of Clinton
As a result, in part, of the foregoing
encounter, and partly from political
quarrels, another duel occurred in 1803
between Bobert Swartwout and Bichard
Biker. The latter afterward became
Becorderof this city, and was familiarly
known as "Dickey Biker." At this
time ho was Attorney General of the
State. He fell at the first fire, receiving
a revere wound in Ins leaf.
The poets Drake and Halleck, who
published " The Croakers" in the Even
ing Post in 1819, amused themselves
and the city about this duel in the fol
lowing lines:.
"The Hiker, like Bob Acres, stood
Edgewaya upon a field of blood.
The why and wherefore Swartwout knows,
Pulled trigger as a brave man should,
And shotGod bless him his own toes !"
In 1804 followed the fatal meeting be
tween Burr and Hamilton, when the
great statesman fell; and amid (he gen
eral grief, these political duels ceased.
Passing 1 y the fatal encounter between
Isaac Gouverneur and William H. Max
well in 1815, and of others who after
ward fell beside Hamilton's monument,
we come to the year 1818, when Commo
dore Oliver H. Perry, the hero of Lake
fine, nad a meeting there with Uapt,
Heath of the United States Marines.
With their seconds', Commodore Stephen
Decatur and Lieut. R. M. Desha, tliey
met on uct. is, in laio a quarrel had
occurred between them in the Mediter
ranean, when Perry gave Heath a blow.'
A conrtmartinl ensned, but Heath after
ward sent Perry a challenge. Several
months previous to the meeting the latter
had addressed a letter to Decatur,
saying, " Although I consider from the
course he (Heath) has thought proper
to pursue, that I am absolved from all
accountability to him, yet as I did, in
moment of irritation, produced by strong
provocation, raise my hand against
person honored with a cnmmiKsinn.
have determined, upon mature reflec
tion, to give him a meeting, should lie
call on me; declaring, at the same time.
rtliat I cannot consent to return his fire,
as the meeting an my part will be en-
iirely as an atonement for the violated
rules of the service. 1 request, there
fore, my dear sir, that von will act as
my friends on this occasion."
In accordance with this, Perry re
ceived Heath's fire without returnine it-
Then Decatur stepped forward with the
letter, whjph he read, and sai4 he pre
sumed the aggrieved party was aatisfiLl.
uapt. ueatn assenting, tne quarrel was
ended, i , , f - r
In 1827, William G. Graham", formerly
of CatskilL was an associate editor of
the New York Couritr . and. Enquirer.
At a friend's house he quarreled with
Mr. Barton, son Of the naturaEst, Dr.
Barton, of Philadelphia: On' Nov. 28
they fought at the Weehawken grorriKis,
Lewis Asbury and Wm. MTieod wers
the friends of the parties, and Dr. B.
fennel! was the surgeon. .
The night previous, Mr. Graham wrote
this letter to his associate, Ma. M. M.
Noah:
"Eutes O'clock.

me. I am perfectly indifferent as to myself,

On the fatal Monday morning, both

the kindly care of the seconds, thp pis
tols were loaded with cork.
During all these long years the laws
forbade the duel, bnt publio sentiment
made the law of the pistol superior.
Public sentiment has changed, but men's
passions remain the same. And however
fatal was the quick decision of arms, it
may be questioned whether society has
now provided a surer remedy for wrong.

Times. Duel in a Bedroom---Both Combatants
Killed.
I
The body of Joseph Goldman, the Po
lish Jew, who was shot by his ex-partner
on election day, still lay yesterday where
i i , r 1 1 ' i , j i nz T-v
it naa iuiieu, m tne top ruum at xuo xo
lancey street. The rooms underneath
are occupied by a family named Wide
man. One of the girls was alone in her
room at about 4 o'clock on Tuesday after
noon, and heard a violent struggle over
head, and immediately thereafter a num
ber of pistol shots fired in such rapid
succession that she could not count
them. A heavy fall followed, and, sup
posing that the stove had been over
thrown in the scuffle, she ran from her
room shrieking fire. The occupants of
the adjoining rooms quickly congregat
ed on the landing. They, too, had heard
the pistol shots. A hand-to-hand struggle
was evidently still in progress above
when David Parison, the tenant of the
room, entered the house. He went up
stairs and found his door bolted, and the
sounds within were those of a death
struggle. He ran down stairs and went
out, as he said, to summon policemen.
Just as he went ont the last shot was
fired and another fall was heard. Then
all was still, and a minute afterward John
Beckel, the owner of the house, entered.
When Officer Henkin arrived he heard
many conflicting stories, and a score of
terrified-men and women followed him
up stairs. He forced the door, but was
prevented from opening it entirely by
what proved to be the body of Davis
Jeroslaw lying behind it He was still
breathing slightly, and he had a small
bullet Hole on tne ode of nis ngnt tem
ple. Goldman's body lay face upward
at the other side of the room, bnt the
apartment was no small that the bodies
were not four feet apart. One bullet
had entered close to the right ear, and
another had penetrated the right tem
ple. He was almost dead. A small
seven-barrel revolver was clutched in his
stiffening . fingers, and a weapon pre
cisely similar was lying by Jeroslaw's
side. Four of the chambers were empty
and Goldman's pistol seemed to have
been fired twice. The plaster had been
knocked from the ceiling in two places
by the Vmllots, and a broken pane
showed where a third ball, and perhaps
others, had passed through the window.

LONG-LOST BROTHERS.
Restored After Many Fears—A Romance
in Real Life.
j
An evening paper of this city, gays the
Cincinnati Commercial, publishes-a
romantio story of the loss of a little child
at the capture and pillage of Corinth
Miss., by the Union forces in the late
war and of bis restoration to his family
after thirteen -years had passed and the
little boy had grown to be a man. In
the flight of the inhabitants from the
burning town, most of the people hur
ried down the railroad track leading
from the southern part of the place, and
took refuge in the woods and neids along
the route. Soon the streets were desert
ed by all except this little boy, who be
came separated from his friends, and,
stricken witn terror, ran imtner ana
thither in his bewilderment, and at last
hid himself in a freight car which had es
caped the general conflagration. Among
tne union soldiers wno soon pourou into
the city was Capt, (afterward oen.)
Hickenlooner. of the Fifth Ohio Bat
tery, who discovered .the boy and took
him back 'to camp, where, by his youth
ful intelligence, he became a great fa
vorite. The boy stated that his name
was Frank Foster, and his father and
brother were in the rebel army, bis
brother beinir an aide to Gen. Beaure
gard ; but as all search for them had
failed, it was believed that they were
dead. The General, out of pity, adopt
ed the boy, and in August, ltsoa, sent
him to Cincinnati, where he was taken
charge of by the General s lauier ana
mother. He was- sent to school, and af
terward served an apprenticeship in the
Surveyor s omoe under nis patron, tne
General, becoming at length a good civil
engineer. During all these twelve or
thirteen years he never ceased, when an
opportunity offered, of making diligent
inquiry with regard to his parents and
family, but in vain ; all be remembered
was his father's and mother's names ;
and with only this- to guide him it
seemed a hopeless task..
He wrote repeatedly to his old home,
but the letters were all returned, no one
having called for them. He inserted
from time to time advertisements in the
Memphis and other Southern papers,
but they - brought no response ; and,
from the day that he was first taken to
the Union Camp, nearly fourteen years
ago, wrapped in an old army blouse that
reached to his ankles, until Saturday of
last week, did never he hear one sylla
ble with regard to father, mother, or
friends. '
One evening, a year or two ago, young
Foster, in company with friends, visited
a theater in this city, and while all were
affected with merriment by the perform
ance of a particular comedian, Foster
was silent and serious, and being after
wards asked the cause, answered, "That
man looked so much like my mother that
it starts me to thinking."
Again one night last week young Fos
ter visited the same theater and to his
astonishment . the same comedian ap
peared ou the stage. This tune it made
such an impression on Foster's mind
that he could not sleep. On Saturday
morning of last week two interested
friends visited tho theater, and found the
comedian alluded to at rehearsaL They
questioned him closely ; the names of
both father and mother corresponded
exactly, but he had no brother. His
only brother, Frank, was lost, he said.
when a child, on the battlefield of
Corinth, and all search for him for thir
teen years had proved unavailing, and he
had finally been given up as dead. The
history of the family was then related
in detail, how after the siege and burn
ing of the town, they had
returned . to their . old house
in Dunkirk, N. X., finally .moving
to Cleveland, where they have been ever
since the father's death ; the now heart
broken old mother ; tho struggles of the
only surviving son to earn a living for
his mother and sisters, and his final
debut and success on the stage ; the un
availing search for the lost brother ; the
advertisements in papers in Eastern and
Southern cities ; the journeys, many of
them on foot to distant places, of the
distracted mother, still searching for her
lost child. :
The brothers, as soon as they were sat
isfied between themselves that they were
brothers, dispatched a message of good
news to their -mother in Cleveland,
and followed the message in person to

A Horrible Tragedy.
One of the most horrible, cold-blood-
ed, startling murdorn that ever happened
in the State was perpetrated last night
near Greentown, Howard county. The
Coroner was notified of the affair about
2 o'clock this morning, and is now pres
ent holding an inquest The particulars
of the affair are as yet very meager, but
as near as we can learn are as follows
David Bobinson came to town yesterday
and bought a new suit of clothes and
revolver. He went nome, snowed tne
purchases to his family, and ate his sup
per. His brother and another man were
at his house, and Bobinson seemed to
want them to leave, and finally persuaded
them to go to church. Bobinson went home
in good humor, and appeared perfectly
sane. Some time after the men had left,
Bobinson remarked to his wife that it
would have been well if little Dan, his
son, had died two weeks ago, and said
he had attempted to kill the child. He
then drew his revolver and fired at
second son. who was Ivinsr in bed. and
then shot, at his wife. Terrified and
crazed - with fright, . Mrs. Bobinson
ran out of the house, and the eldest boy,
8 years of age, started to follow. Bob
inson shot him in the face, but the ball
glanced and failed to hurt him badly.
The father then struck him in the back
of the head with a chair, and made
bad wound, but the son succeeded in
getting out of doors with his mother.
Bobinson then deliberately took a razor
from a box near him, and approached
his little girl, his only daughter, who
was. lying in bed, and, seizing her, cut
her throat from ear to ear. . He followed
thi3 murder by taking the life Of" the
eon whom he had first shot in bed in
the same manner. Bobinson then jumped
on his horse, and, np to the time of this
writing, has not been hunted down.
Later. This morning a horse was
fonnd hitched at the junction with no
claimer. Bobinson got on to one of the
night ireight trains on the I., P. and C.
B. B., unknown to anyone hi Kokomo,
and the dead body of a man was found
one mile from Jackson Station, and was
identified as that of David Bobinson,
who committed the terrible deed last
night It is unknown how he met- his
fate, but it is supposed he either fell off
or jumped off the freight car and met in
Kokomo (Ind.) Tribune.
Our Imperial Visitor.
a
The visit to the United States of the
Emperor of Brazil, Doin Pedro II., is
matter of much importance commer
cially, if the good results follow from it
that we are led to expect. Brazil is the
most important part of South America,
Iu territory she is bnt little inferior to
the United States, and her resources aro
as magnificent as her territorial dimen
sions. It is very desirable that we estab
lish close commercial relations with her
as she offers a splendid market for our
manufactures and agricultural products,
while she produces much that we must
buy abroad. There is a disposition on
the part of Brazilians to prefer to trade
with ns rather thau with Europe, and
we should encourage this by every rea
sonable effort. New York, Baltimore
and New Orleans will, be wonderfully
benefited by the transfer to them of
large portion of the trade which now
goes to Liverpool and London, while
our merchant marine will be assisted
with a portion of the carrying trade. It
only requires a little tact and enterprise
to bring this about. Our iron and cot
ton manufactures are now sharp competi-
Jttintsftf pa
those produced in. England,' while we
can furnish coal aad'agritroltural products
at a much lower rate than any other coun
try- V -... .... -.
If the Brazilian Emperor : meets with
a cordial reception on his arrival here it
will be ' an admirable card for our mer
chants, ' and insult in attracting the
Brazilian people's attention to this coun
try, which bears the same relation to the
Northent Continent that they do to the
Southern. He deserves it for himself,
for he has proved himself a liberal, con
scientious monarch, as far removed from
a despot as a monarch well can be. His
imperial title is almost honorary ; he has
less real power, perhaps, than any con

The Southern Pacific Railroad.
a
The press, politicians and business
men of the Southern States aro getting
worked up to a good deal of interest
the speedy o instruction of their pro
posed ra lroad tlirough Texas to tne Pa
cific coast, and their demand for govern
ment assistance to it threatens now to
pressed with constantly increasing power
until, in some sliape or other, it is grant
ed. The case is thus compactly and vig
orously put by Mr. Frank S. Bond, the
able Vice-President of the 'road, into
whose hands the practical management
of the enterprise has been placed.
Tho question of a Southern Pacific
road is a very simple proposition. It
simply whether twelve Southern States,
with a population of 11,500,000, and
area of 789,375 square miles, with 15,
602 miles of railroad in operation, rep
resenting a capital account of $523,509,
223, shall have a direct connection with
Mexico and the Pacific coast, and shall
be permitted to enjoy the advantages
that her natural position will insure
her with such a connection ; and it is for
Southern Senators and members of the
next House to say whether or not the
advantages of tho Texas and Pacific rui'
way line to the Pacific Ocean shall
open to their constituents within the
next four years. They have only to Bay
they want it, and there are enough
Northern votes to give it them as an act
of simple' justice to the South. But
will never be forced upon them against
their wishes.
