TOTAL ABSTINENCE SAVING WIE TILL IT
There is a curious story about some native
wipes which are extensively a(ivertised nowa.
days. and have only recently been put upon
the market. Dr. Underhill, the well-known
grape.growcr of Croton Point, died in z87r.
Some of his heirs entertained temperance
views of such extreme kind, that they were
unwillin, to allow the stock of wines then on
hand to be sold or any more to be made.
The grapes have sometimes been sent to
market, and sonetimps left to decay upon
the vines, It is only now that the other heirs
have succeeded in arranging for a settlement
of the estate and the sale of the wines on
hand. Among these is a wine of the vintage
of 1864, described as a " Sweet Union Port,"
but suggesting the Imperial Tokay more
than any other European wine, and being
wholly 4nlike any pther' wine of American
grwh ts purity, age and mellowness are
remarkable, and both phyicians and wine,
fanciers have .a special interest in it as the
oldesr native wvine now accessible in ainy con,.
siderable quantity. The whole stock is in the
had fthe wvell-knowna wholesale grocery
house of the Thurbers.-N. Y. Tiys
Nov. 19, J&7,
The above speaks for itself, but we would
add that this is the pure juice of the grape,
neither drugged, lguored nor 'watered; that it
has been ripened and mellowed by age, and
for medicinal or sacramental purposes -it Js
unsurpassed. It can be obtained from most
of the leading Druggists throughout the
United States, and at wholesale from the
undersigned, who will forward descriptive
pamphlet, free of charge, on application.

A Rich Cont,rovorsy with Ben HI!!.
A iGaorgia correspondont of the c
Now York Star in giving an account a
of Alexander H. Stephens' political
career, narrates the following as an
evidonce of his pluck
The only ro:al fight of Mr. A. H. n
Stephens was not strictly a duel,
save as it took two to do it. MIr.
Stephens, for a little man, has (
always been both plain and loud,
and ho opposed the Mexican war
steal as strongly as did Tom Cor- 1
win, who hoped the "yellow bellies,"
as our foes were then elegantly
called, would "wt'lcone the in vaders
with bloody hands to hospitable
graves." Stephens nore oleg untly
spoke of the crime to be prosecuted
against them as
"E ven until
The gates of mery shaltl ho all shut up,.
And tic Ilssihed soldier, rough and hard
In liberty of bloody 1andnl shall range
Witi Conscicco wvi,Le as hell, iowing
like grass 't
I''i.r fraon ;.t;r vir ins an.d their bloom. Y
Thi:i sort of thing, and his ;peech ,
on the Clayton comupromaisc of 1848, I
as a clinax, made things waru'1 in a
that rattier warm and excitable i
climate, and Ju.1go Cne, a mtn of n
Northern birth, elected to the a
judgeship of Georgia, soon Bw lit
to denounce im as "a traitor to'J
the South" in a public speech. *
Stephens said, when he heard of it: a
"If he says Ihat to me, I will slap t
his face." They izd an Interview' J
on the .'siubjet, and t'ie words were ii
leied by Judge Cone, and Stephens 1
sid his say. They parted in a t
friendly l.anler, but the threat of i
Stephens was taken tip by the l
ineddlers who foment duels and -
never fight them, and the Judge i
met the Cong re rsn in in the piazz o C
of Tuomnpi,n's H l,Atlant-t, (Ia., i
on S.;ptetnber 4, 1SI, with a de- I
uiand for 1 etraction. 1
TIIls WAS THE DUEL oROUND,
and for tools Mi'r. Cone bad a big a
knife, and Mr. Stephels had a 'c
umbrella, Mr Cone weighed over I
two hundred pounds ; Mr. Stephens
ninoty-four pounds only. Upon
the refusal to retract by Stephenr, a
C Ine attacked him w iii the open t
k4il'e. This was parried for some t
sconds with the u',brella, although
Stopbhens was llelin tg from eu is in cl
the breast and arms Then Cane n
threw his whole weight on hini, p
acnl thus broug:it him (1wn on his r
back, With his loft hand on the l1
forehead of his advers.ary, and the p
knife in his right, Cone cried out: Ic
"Now, you retract, or I will cut :
votur throat." The firm reply t
was : "No, nnver-nut " ii
Jilood was flowing from~ a breast- c
wounid received standing, which I<
would have reached the heart, but b
from a turn ill the blade of the 'e
knife, and another stab) on the
other' sidie had passed betweon two o
ribs, and govered1 an intercostelary
artery. So it was not fr'om a sense e
of safety on thes big m-m's goner- li
csity that h.o defied him. As the I
knife camne to finish its work, Mr. o
Stephens caught it in his .right "
hand, and his loft seized the rig~ht ut
elbow of Ji;dge Cane. In this way a
the struggle lasted till both par'tins r
were on their feet agazin, and othersr
had come to the rescue. The right h
band of Mr'. Stephens, that had ci
seized the knife as it came at his!a
throat, was horribly mangled in th.e I
turning and twisting of the blade ii
in the efforts to get it out of the n
grip. The hemorrhage fromi the ai
severed artery wvoul haye resulted ei
in speedy death, bust for .Lhe fortu- a
nate presene of .Dr. Hitchcock, of a
the United! $tates Army, whose
skill arrated it. Mr. Stephens
was confined to his bed 'for several 1
weeks with these wounds, and the
right hand was thought to be c:
permanentl,y disablod. The ten- i
clons of coveral fingers and the n
thumb were'severed, and he began di
to write with his left hand,: not I
lising the ight for twelve months., ai

THE ONLY WAY TO GE' STEPHENS
lown was to lkill him, an4 that is
oartly the reason why so few have
ricd to du it since. General Case
ad been suro of the State by
0,000, but his influence gave it to

fter this that he challenged Goy

ma settlod without fighting but

aont : "No man has any right to
sult another like a worldling, and
hen to seek a sanctuary like a
His controversy with the Hon.
3enjamin H. Hill. the present Sena
or from Georgia, was more serious.
Ir. Hill was invited to a political
arbocuo (or dinner of neat cooked
i a pit,) where lir. Stephens and
udgo T. W. Thoaras were to do the
)euocratic talking. lfr. Stephens
egan his speech in his usual tone
f iwsolent contempt. Said lie "It
tas expected that representative
ien of the parties would be in de,
ate to-day. I do not say that
MR. B. H. HILL,
lie Know-Nothing orator, is unable
o discuss these great questions
'ith me. I do not say he is afraid to
iot no in this discussion. I do
Lot say he baclcd out of this adfair.
only say that he promised to come,
nd that he is not here." This was
(ported to Mr. Ifill, who, when
nx!f he spoke alone, retorted by
,ying that ho had charged Mr,
tUphous at I,exington, and Mr.
'oonbs at Washington village, with
having betrayed the Whig party,
ud having acted worse towards it
ban Judas Iscariot. for, though
n i.s b3trayo.i his m-ister, he did
of abuse him afterward." Said
Ir. Hill : "I thundered this in
hair oars, and they cowered under
." The issue was made up, not so
Inch oi} whethpr hp said It or not
--for he did so later, if not then--,
mut upon whother they "cowered"
r not. Mr. Stophens wrote his
enand for retraction, and Mr.
lill wrote about politics, and said
o was insensible to any feeling of
Q.r. Mr'. Stephens challenged him
nd Mr. Hill wrote of the issue, and
f family and moral duties, and said
o would resist and defend himself
Mn. sTEPHENS "PUBLISHED" HIM ;
nd that the present good genera,
on may know what an awful thing
aat was, I copy the hot paragraph
"I am compelled by a sense of
uty to myself and the publ;c to

Again, at the close, after speaking
f the Elbert discussion:
"I will also, I trust, b e 0ecused,
