"? Richard Maxwell, thVVstm of a rich
merchant of tho cjty of Dublin, in Ire
land ; united to tho graces of his person,
and to a cultivated mind, a tender and
compassionate heart, which exalted still
more in him, tho bthor gifts of nature.
While he was at Algiers,- on business of
commercd; he saw a vessel approaching
the shore one day^ on which were two
young women, who were weeping bitter
ly. Touched by this sight, he went for
ward and enquired why thoy wero weep
ing. .He was told; that those two persons
were young slaves, lately captured, and
were brought there to be sold. Excited
by a lively sentiment of compassion, be
prcsciited hiniself to purchase them. He
immediately,paid, what the sordid pirates
demanded: He then approached the
two captives, to console them, spoko to>|
them in the most nffoctionato manner,
conducted them to Eis own vessel, and
there, declared to, them that they were,
free, and that he was ready and willing
to do anything they desired of him. Tho
ladies, in the excess of their joy, at this
unexpected generosity, prostrated', them
selves at his feet,' and their weeping, soon
changed to an excess of joy. They used
their endeavors, to' show to their benefited
tor, how grateful they wcro to him for
such an unexpected kindness.
JThe ladies wero of a distinguished and
noble figure, and one of them was
remarkably beuutiful. Richard was
charmed by her beauty, and very soon,.
generosity and also, tho lively ncknowl*
edgement, which lie knew so Svcll bow to
iuspiro in this young and beautiful girl,
and*the 'distinguished iuerit, which he
discovered in her talents, her sense, the
sweetness of her character ; the elegance
ot' her manners, all, indicating a virtuous
and excellent education, inspired him by
degrees with a very ardent love for her.
Tho lady, who on her side, felt her
self allied to him by tho .kiuducss sho
had already received, and perceiving
that bis attentions to her wore every day
increasing" remarking in him also, a re
markable combination of all that forms
a cultivated mind and a sound judgment
to a generous heart, cculd not refuse him
a sincere friendship. Richard, supplica
ted her, on eevcral occasions, to mako
known to him, her name, her family, and
her cdhntry. All she waa willing to havo
him to know, was, that her namo was
Constance and that of her companion waa
Isabella, and sho requested him not to
question her any farther and to rest sat
isfied with k'.icv/iug their names. Let it
suffice you to know, that Heaven has not
brought mo forth into tho world, unwor
thy of your attention?, and that on6 day,
perhaps, you will meet your recompense.
Ruing arrived at Dublin, Richard pre
sented tho*two ladies to bis father, told
him how they camo into ins bands, and
even did not conceal the tender* senti
ments that Constance had inspired in his
bosom. The good father, applauded tho
generous action he bad done in purchis
ing them, but ho disapproved of a njar
riage that ho proposed to contract with
this young aud unknown stranger, who,
at first sight, did not appear to bo a suita
ble match for his son. However^ in, a
very brief pcrioti, being over comely ner
noble manners and the amiable qualities
that he perceived in her, bo could fad
no excuse to resist tho ardent desire ol
When Constance perceived that R'fch
ard conceived su3h love for her, and eten
offered her his hand, although she p>id
him interiorly or by a sincere return, tnd
although sho was charmed by bis prcpo
sul, nevertheless, sho positively refund,
and would not otcu consider the pr<po
sal. However, with timo, love carjicd
tho day. Richard saw his vows crowned
by tho consent of Constance*
Tho marriage of those-two lovers was
celebrated with much joy. One Jcar
had not quite olapacd, when a beautiful
and kf'ysiy infant became the precious
fruit i :' :hij happy union.
At tfte end of two years, passed in the
bnppiness of domestio peace and of the
purest' love, Riohard, was obliged, on
busing affairs; to ?ndtiriake a much
lobgervoyago than the. proceeding one.
Ho ctfj?d not leavo his beloved wife with
out shjftiding a-flood of tears, he wished
to tnl o her likeness with him, which he
?iifeerajin airing.. After Saftirig on dif-.
IVivr.< voyages, in various parts of the
v>orlo$ho arrived finally at Palermo.
Oa}?day, while bo had his. eyes fixed
likeness of Iiis wife, which ho very
?fter looked at; an officer of the court,
whflfc ffas present at the time, knew whose
liJtefcess it was and ran immediately to
inlVu trt^he King of it
Tivo king immediately summoned our
traveller into his presence, then, feigning
in the conversation ho had Svith- him,
I anything but the object he had in view,
and .in speaking of things promiscuously,
he ci'.st his eyes attentively on the ring,
which tho stranger had on his finger. At
theJifab -sight ef it,he felt interiorly,
anMnexpressible trouble, which he know,
however, how to conceal. 'Continuing
however in the same manner, he' asked
ityjt stranger, whose HkenessJMiat was, .
"It is my wife's," eaid Richard.
thy wife I And where is she at
"At my father's house in Dublin." .
"What is her name?"
J"Is sho a native of Dublin, or is she a
granger ?" /
|^"?be is a stranger; but Sire, I cannot
t'dl you what land gave her birth." ?
He then commenced und (old him how
ho had got acquainted with her, how he
tiud rescued her from tho pirates, con
ducted her to Dublin, and finally had

vessel, ho sent it with great haste to
Dublin, to bring back "*Constance, her
son* aud Isabella. Who can form any
idea, of the sorrow and consternation of
the unfortunate husband, when "he per
ceived to what danger, his imprudence
had brought him, in recounting his ad
venture? What horror, What fright, did
not the unfortunate Constauro experience
when she was seized by the order of her
father? How tho poor old man iu Dub
lin, fell into despair, when ho saw him
sell doprived of.his daughter-in-law, and
of bis sen ! ? i
Constance, having arrived at Palermo
and having been presented to the King,
was struck with terror at his stern coun
tenance^ After regaining her courage
and after haviug prostrating herself at
"Sire!" said she, "I ought to appear
very gnilty to yon, and for good reasons ;
I wait with submission the effects *of your
anger; but this young child; but his un
fortunate father are innocent. I beseech
you, at least, to spare both. If neverthe
less your indignation *at this moment
would givo place to your ordinary kind
ness, I could plead my cause, and I would
then appear less criminal than I at pre
seut appear.. On that fatal day, when I
wns separated from you, I was amusing
myself with my sister Isabella, in that
part of the gardens" of your majesty, that
extend toward the sea. A tr^op of peo
ple, who were watching for us, at that
moment when we least expected it, seiaed
us, and carried us both off. The fright,
the pain, the despair caused us to scream
violently, but all iu vain. The Duko of
Barry, author of this treachery, embarked
us both on a vessel, which ho had at a
little distance. From thence, ho ordered
sail immediately. I confess, now at your
feet, Sire, that to that moment, my heart
did not undertake to bid defiance against
his love, but I swear at the same time,
that far from consenting to so criminal
an act, from that raomont, I regarded
him as the vilest of mankind. When wc
wero fully at sea wo wero surprised and
attacked by pirates. Tho combat was
long and stubborn. The Duke acted as
a hopeless person, and finally paid with
his lifo, the penalty of his crime. My
sister and myself were mado captives and
were sent to Algiprs to bo sold. It was
then, that a young man, who, without
doubt wa.a scut by Heaven, presented
himself to liborato us. Touched by a
generous compassion, ho offered n great
prize f?r^j?r ransom, and bought us.
Not satisfied with having restored us to
liberty, he did not cease to bestow on us
all that \vas possible to bo dono. Several
times, he questioned Iis ffbout our coun
try, and offered to take us thither; but
fearing tho effects of tho suspicion, that
you had good.- reasons for, and fearing
your anger, I never bad courage enough
to let him kuo<v of bur parentage. When
wo arrived at Dublin, ho presented me
to his lather. He Bhowed me for a.long
time,'the. most respectful attentions,.^
though. I persisted iu not making myself
known to him, and,finally offered me his"
hand in marriage.'. I have offended you,
Sire, I no more deserve that you regard
me as your daughter'} but, abandoned by
all the world, as I believed;agitated by the
insurmountable dread which the fear of
your anger caused, having lost all hope
of eVer seeing you again, and also van
quished by a sentiment of profound grat
itude, shall I 'any. i:? Still perhaps by
an attachment sw.eeter and more tender
which his engaging manners caused me
to feel, I at last consented, I consented to
bo his Spouse. Punish, Sire !. punish
your dadghter, if she deserves punish
ment, I will never complain,. but this
generous benefactor, to whom I oWe my
my life and my liberty, but .this young
tender babe, Ah I do not suffer them
to bear the punishment of a crime, of
which I alone nm guilty 1 ?
To this discourse, which the expression
of the eyes, the face and tbe voice ren
dered more energetic and more effica
cious, the king, who at the beginning had
shown severity In his countenance, and
even of anger, became calm ami showed
marks of tenderness. The humble and
touching posture of Constance, the cries*
of 4ho iufnnt, the groans and tears of the
mother caused tho greatest emotions on
the soul of the. king. Ho" then offered
his hand to hia daughter, (who was still
from her humble posture, tojE?ieYrS.
"Thou hast offended me in a union $d
disproportionate, without my consent.?1
Thou host still more grossly outraged mc;
thou hast doubted of my clemency to
pardon thy flight, if it were innocent,'
Hut, as to-day, i see that the sorrow thou
hast caused' nie, arc in theo tho effects of
weakness and not those of a.guilty heart,
I remember that I am thy father and
pardon thee." Whilst saying those words
he hugged her to hia breast, aja'd ordered
that Richard bo immediately brought
into bis presence. Then, Constance,
burst iuto tears ; b"t they wore tears of
sensibility, of joy, and of gratitude.
This caused such au effect on the feel
ings of the King that he could not Jwitb
hold hia teara.
Tho unfortunate captivo, who had re
mained so long in- suspense, and in tbe
unccrtitudc of what fate awaited him, be
ing much more troubled by the order ho
had.received, to appear before tho Kinn
advanced palo and trembling. Aa *bon
as perceived Constance, hia blood froze;
with fear iu his veins; but to this first
sentiment, another more violent emotion
'succeeded, and forgetting nil other ob
jects, no sprang toward hia wife, pressed
her and her child alternately .to hia bo
som, nnd remained for some time unite'd
(o those beings so dear, to his heart, with
out being able to speak one word. Final
ly ho separated himself from them, and
falling on bis knees at tho King's feet,
"I accept, willingly all the punishment
it may please your mageaty to inflict on
mc, since I have been permitted once
mote, to behold the objects dearest lo my
heart. There is. nothing more left to de
sire for myself; but for those two persons
and my futliec-"
"No my son," replied the King, "do
not ufilict yourself, you have nothing to
fear. Your recital nnd that of my
daughter (pointing to Constance) bavo
convinced mo of your innocence,and
gives mo a-just Cause to admire the gcu
croaity of your heart. Heaven wished
to recompense you, and I adoro it's de
crees. Livo happily together. And
may j*our children beconio tho consola
tion of my old age."
Those words gave place to the greatest
feelings of tenderness, of reciprocal em
braces and to the sweetest tears. The
King immediately sent a vessel to Dub
Jin to- invite the father ?f Richard "to joi? 4?
him at'Oourt. *
This good old man, transported with
joy, arrived in a very brief 8? ace of time! ,<
,. Having received all the - blessings of .
Heaven, they passed their days inost?^
happily and-agreeably together... -^-sw*
Richard Maxwell in his new situation,

A Duel Without Seconds.
? -' ?? ? .' " ? : .j ??? ?? ?
f* In-ft late issue of the Memphis Publio .
Ledger, appeared an account of tbe shot
gun duel at Horn Lake,DeSoto County,
Mississippi, between, Colonel Win. jZof&&:
lerand Mr. Winfield McClellan;, wThcIS**;
took place a^ short time, since.. There';
were quite a number of citizens at Horn
Lake when the belligerents walked out V
h i ndred yards from tho depot to settle ft !
difficulty without seconds, as none of the
gentlemen present would . act. Tho par- >
ties bad hitherto been good friends, but
had quarrelled over their "cups," about
some trivial matter. Those i? town could
see the fighters on the hill, and could
hear th? loud conversation as they wero'
preparing for the contest. Colonel Boto
ler loaded his gun with heavy. squirrel '
shot, having determined not to- kill his
opponent, but to cripple him by shooting -
him in the. legs. ~*Mr. McClellan, how- ?
ever,- was not so considerate, as he ram
med down sixteen buck&pt in each harr-,
rcL It.wOs agreed that McClellan should, .'
pace of twenty steps from where Boteler. ?
stood; then McClellan, was to wheel
around and both parties wfcre to fire.?
McClellan marched off, never looking*
bock, but called out the paces 00 he Went*.
? When he called twenty, he shouted,
"Boteler, are' you ready ?" "Ready,"'
answered the Colonel. Then McClellan.
wheeled, and there was a simultaneous**
discharge ot the guns, Boteler firing both
barrels at, once, and McClellan but ouc.

j np, however, and as be stagg;ere<l7he dtS^
i charged the other load. Boteler ap
proached him and extending his hand,
saying: . -
''McClellan, take my hand and let us
} ''I'll be rfrry if I, do," was the answer
Somp parleying took place, McClelland
insisting that he would load his gun
agaiu. Colonel Boteler took tbe precau
tion to place some buckshot in his pock
et* and answered:;
"McClellan, you are not milch hurt;
I shot you .with squirrel sbot, asl did *
not desire to kill you, b?t if you load
again, next time T shall kill you cer
By this time a number of citizens, see
ing the puff of smoke and hearing the
report of tbe guns, ran up and stopped
all further proceedings. Dr. Boskervilla
attended McClelland und extracted fif
teen, or twe:v*y shots from his left leg.?
Several of the leaden missiles ehtcred
tne knee and ankle joints, and these could
not be extracted. Yesterday Mr. Mc
Clellan was suffering intensely, but . was
in no danger, and no doubt in a month
he will be up aud well, but iu all proba
bility will have a stiff leg" for life.
Botii parties were arrested,- and wero
taken before a magistrate,, and had to be'
