The recbnt deatir of Capt. 'aie. Ne
(.arty, the celebrated t iitior ati' dtatl-I
Ist, has recalled the Lragic I'lf-au in
which hie was one of the prinicipals.
and a correspondent tells the story as
Captain 'age Mc..Carty w e the last
of the famoub Southern duelists. ile
- was in May, i873, one of the pri nici pals
in an atfair that wa- rolaniLc as well
as fatal. He killed John Moruaeeni, a
prominent lawyer, and 'was h im-elf
terribly wounded. Tio lady who was
at that, time the belle of the SouLi wias
tho Innocent cause of this duel.
McCarty came of the best stock. One
%f his ancestors was speaker of the old
lfoule of Burgesses, away back iu 1715.
-lie and Mordecal were nton.t the same
age. They were deskinalte at the Uili
versity of Virginia when' lawv students
there just before the war. McCarty, as
i- voluriteer, was present at ,bo timo of
the time of the captur of 'arpur' .
- L"erry. He was then a btardless youth,
but it was not long before he was rap
- idly prolpoted from private and became
a c'aptaln of antil .rv ,
After the war Cap ain Medarly turn
ed his attention to newspaper and
literary work. In the yea- 1813 lie and
his old friend, Mordecai., were both
desperately in love with Miss Mary
Trpiett, who was at that timo the nost
celebrated beauty in Virginia, if not in
the whole South. A grand ball was
given in April of the year mentioned,
and all the fashionable peoplo of Rich
mnd were there. On this' occasion
liss Triplett wounded the feelinks of
Captain McCarty by showing a decided
preference to dance with some one
else. Shortly after the ball the fol
. lowing verse was printod -in a local
newspaper, but no name was signed
to it :
'When Mary's form diviiie I press,
In 8trauss s sweetest waltz.,
-'lhose lips 1. too, would faina caress,
A ltho' th'o lips he fae."'
-John Mordecal was sitting at a res
taurant on Main street waiting for his
order for breakfast to be fillied when
he read these lines. Ills friend, Wil
hiam Rloyall, one of the leaiding lawyers
In LRichmond, was with hi mi. Mor~iecai
sigid It was evident that McCarty had
written tho verse and that the'"Mary"
ref.erredl to was Miss Trriplett. Lle an
nounced his purpogo to hold McCarty
peF~onally responsible. Mr. Riuyall in
sisted that if the author of ,he pu0 blica
tion was to he punished thero was lio
reason whby Mordecai shouldiundertake
to do it, as the k.ady hadly grown bruith
er and other mnale relatives. But the
young lawyer was terribly angry and
he would not listen to the advice of hkis
5friends, lie sought the counsel o f Wl
11am Lt. Trigg, the present, head of the
W. 1.1. Trrigg ship building company.
Mr. Trigg took the same view of the
matter as did Mr. Il'eyali and Mordecal
was .finally eonvinced that, it would

I t. 11l. .Palmer, D.D., the annual
otrator of the Confederate reunion in
Louisville, answered this q uestion as
"Accustomed through sixty years to
address public assemblies, I ai iever
theless subdued with awe in your pres
ence today ; for we stand together un
der the shadow of the past. I t is the
solemn reverence one mig ht feel in the
gloom uf Westminster Abbey, sur
rounded by l'ngland's Illustrious ilead.
Indeed, we are here the living repro
sentatives of countless comrades who
sleep iII lonely cemeteries throughout
the land; where perchance a single
monumental shaft Is the ghostly senti

" It is live and thirty years since tihe
Confederate war was closed, and about
thirty-nine years since it was hgun;
and it is sometimes asked why we
should Atir tihe ashes of that ancient
feud, why we should not bury the past
in its own grave, and turn to the living
issues of the present and the fliure.
'To this question, comiiirades, we retmu :
the answer with a voice loud a. seven
tlinders, because It is our history
and the history of our dead horoes,
who shall not go without their
fame. As long as there are men who
Wear the gray, they will gather the
charred embers of their old camp fires,
and in the blaze of these ruunions tell
the story of the martyrs who fell
in the defense of co intry and of truth.
"Nay, more than Lhis: It i.s the story
of a strife that marks an epoch in the
annals of the A merican people. It is
known to every school boy in the land
that two parties existed at the formna
tln of our government, who could not
agree In locating the paraloiulit sove
cignty which should decide upon all
issues arising between the States and
themselves. The lederabsts, as they
were termed, demanded a strong gov
ernment, concentrating power in the
national adilinistration: the I epubli
can.s, on the otner liano, contended for
the distribuLion of power among the
States, ciaiming their original sover
elguity a.nong their reserved rights.
Both parties were too strong to allow
the question to le determined by arbi
tration or through forensic llicusision.
It was, therefore, permittei to sumnber
beneath certain ambigui tics of ex
pression in the constitution itself, to be
,ettied by the exigencis of the future,
not as in abt act pri lci ple, but as 1n
accompliled fact. I need not
reilind youi how 1his hsue v. as.
raised in I 132, and was )ostjp(oned
through the conciliatory legislation of
that period. Such nll issue could not,
however, sleop forever. The admis
soUn of new States into the Union, with
their conliicting interests, nut, reopen
t ;( qutsLion and compel discusLion.
Thus it aroso in our day, leading to the
establishment of the boouthern Confed
eracy and to ihe civil war that followed.
" It is simple folly to suppoed that
such a sponltaneous lprisillg as that of
our people in 1860 and 186l could be
effected through the machinations of
politicians alone. A movement so sud
den and bo vast instantly swallowing
il ali minor contentions, would only
spring from some great faith deeply
planted in the human heart and for
which men were willing to die. What
ever mry have been the occasion
of the war, its 'eardo causae,' the
hinge on which it turnleid, was this
old question of State sovereignty as
against national supremacy. As there
could be no compromise between the
two, the only resort was an appeal to
the law of force, the 'ultimai ratio
regum."' The suirrendler at Appotuat
Lox, when the tattered remnant, of
Lee's great, army stood guard for the
1ast time over Southern liberties and
rights, drew the equatorial line divid
ing between the past, and the fu Lure of
American history. When the will of
the strongest instead of tihe 'consent of
the governed' became the base of our
national structure, a radical transfor
mlation took place. The pri nciplle of
confederation gave wazy to thlat of con
sol idathun and the Amierican nation
emierged out of the Amtierican replic .
