FOR
THE
PATRIOT.
TO DUELLISTS.
jUl men desire happiness and a con­
tinuation
of that happiness during their
.hole existence. Whatever they do is
done in pursuit of happiness. When a
matt does that which is not the most cori
ng}
to
happiness that his circumstance
allows* be errs in judgment, or acts the
part of a madman. Therefore when a
asa iiphts a duel, he does the best for
Hsoffn happiness, errs in judgment, or
i the part of a madman. If there be
jo God, and no future state of exiatenee
jg
may
be right. If there be a God who
is pleased with such conduct the duellist
las done well. But if there be no God
iho
is
displeased with it, and that God
bethe just Ruler of the universe, every
Ban who engages in a duel will find it to
jijg own disadvantage. If the Christian
idigion be true, duellists incur the dis
pleasure of God. He that falls dead in
adael roust bear that displeasure hereaf
ter and live survivor must repent, and
fish the deed undone or follow his an
tagonist to a region of sorrow. If this
be
sot true all who profess Christianity
are knaves or fools and every Bible
ought to be committed to the flames.
Men may boast of their courage as
they please: but a wise man will not rush
into combat with a full convictien that he
must yield to his antagonist. If the com
Braider
of an army should do so, he
would deserve to be branded with infamy.
How then can a man be thought wise who
lis his hand in opposition to Almighty
GoJ. Happiness is all we desire and
our boasted courage deprive us of hap
piness and sink us in misery, away with
fich courage forever. As sure as the
Bible is the word of God every duellist
rill, either in time or eternity repent of|
lis conduct: and ho has no just claim to
ifason who does that which he is sure to
Fish undone. ^'s
But some profess not to believe the Bi
He. Such men ought never to use it in
swearing or administering an oath. If
they have the honor wjhich is necessary
to act the part of officers, that honor
should induce them to reject a book they
do not believe. And if they cannot fill
those offices without being sworn by this
old book they ought nobly to decline.
Should they enter into office by affirma
tion without the Bible, if a just and holy
God be not acknowledged, such affir
mation is senseless and ridiculous, if not
hypocritical. And if a just and holy God
he but acknowledged, all the sad conse
quences I have
T«H
4 k
mentioned may be ex-
see men whose passions are flaming with
all the fury of demons, and even blasphe
ming God, thus in a moment plunge into
eternity. What must be the character of
,e,-^mighty if he will instantly receive
their souls into his favor and admit them
»eternal joy?
He who has been killed in a duel is in
estate of happiness, or of misery, or of
feasibility. Let the survivor think

in the act
^®the place was named
,-ided for establishing the seat
is capable of the most consummate wick
edness,, Whatever false reports may
have been raised against him, nothing
worse can be said than what he has pro
ven to be true. There may indeed be
crimes he would not commit but a man
often scorns to commit the crimes of
which other men are guilty, and yet com
mits other crimes which they hold in
equal abhorrence and sometimes really
worse, than those he condemns.
When it is not necessary as a means of
defence, nothing can justify us in coolly
wishing to take a man's life, unless we
are fully convinced that he is so far des
titute of good principle as not to deserve
a place among the living: and then the
civil law must be deficient if it does not
condemn him to death. But surely duel
lists will not always say that the law
ought to have been so made as to punish
their antagonists with death.
When a man does not deserve to, die it
is a shocking crime to kill him. And
when one does deserve to die, it is mad
ness for the injured person to risk his
own life against that of the injurer which
may only add injury to injury on the part
of the innocent. Were a man convicted
of a capital crime by the law of the land,
and ^ome friend to the public would offer
to risk his life against the criminal, who
would be pleased at the combat? But is
it not often the case that a man attempts
to kill one whom he acknowledges to be
in his. general character a gentleman of
honor, because he happens to commit
one error? In such case the assaulted
may defend himself. Should a difference
take place between another person and
me, if I can believe I am wrong I ought
to acknowledge it, and as far as the cir
cumstances permit to make amends for
the injury. It may be thought a mark of
meanness humbly to confess a wrong, and
try to make reparation. I grant it. But
wherein does the meanness consist? Sure
ly in the wrong that is done, and not in
making reparation. And if we would
have the least meanness possible attached
to our character the only way is to wrong
others no more, and give all satisfaction
for what we have done. And the man
to whom due acknowledgement is made
must possess a brutal feeling if he still
insist on taking revenge. But if I do not
believe I am in the wrong, and the man
with whom I have a difference makes no
acknowledgement I should still remem
ber that he may not see his error as I do.
Who knows that we may not sincerely
and honestly differ in opinion? Every
man of generous feelings would rather let
a guilty person escapc than to punish an
innocent one. And let the case be as it
will, to take his life cannot repair the in
jury he has done. In all cases we have
a right to forgive injuries unless some
person have a right to forbid it and such
a case I believe cannot be found. The
law which requires us to resent all inju
ries is a barbarism, unfounded in the will
of God or in the conduct of the most hon
orable characters that ever have lived.
Shall God forgive unnumbered crimes
and shall we who are guilty of ten thous
and ourselves refuse to forgive one in a
fellow sinner? Surely it would be more
noble to follow the example of Heaven.
Some will probably plead that duelling
is'fashionable among those who are con
sidered gentlemen of honor and conse
quently to decline a combat would in
many instances disgrace a man in the
eyes of the world. Many see the evil of
the practice, confess it to be in itself
wrong, that it has no just foundation in
nature but they are so pitifjlly afraid that
others will think slightly of them that
they will comply. Thus they become
the dupe3 of fashion and while they are
fighting for the name of HERO, they prove
themselves fearful in the lowest degree.
Let a mathematical question be proposed
to a man who knows how to answer it
correctly if he should be in company
with a hundred ignorant persons who
agree to give an erroneous answer, will
u
pected to follow the practice of duelling, he give up the known truth, and acknowl
If men be tired of life and wish to leave edge them right? If you should happen
ihe world reason seems to say they ought! with a company of drunkards who burn
as much as possible to have their minds their clothes would it be wise in you to
imposed to peace. How shocking to follow the example? A man of a truly
noble spirit, when he knows what will
be most conducive to happiness, and that
which will receive the approbation of

none
God and alljntelligent beings when view

pursue that course though all the world
should now consider him a fool. If he is
right the day will come when all the
world should now consider him a fool.
If he is right the day will come when all
shall confess the superiority of his judge
ment.
When once a cause is universally ac
knowledged to be good, he that first en-
right toj gaged in it may expect the greater ap-
wplain. Suppose this true the man} probation: and he that was slowest in fol
lowing the good example may expect the
least applause. Therefore when we see
the impropriety of a practice we should
do every thing to discourage it and if we
prove successful we shall be the benefac
tors of mankind if unsuccessful we shall
at last appear in all such cases to have
been among the wisest of men.

OTJTRAGES AMONG THE CHER
OKEE INDIANS NEAR FORT
GIBSON.
Murder of John Ridge, his Father, &c.
The Natchez Courier of the second
says:—"By a letter received in this city
yesterday, from one of our citizens at
Fort Gibson, Arkansas, we are informed
that about a week since the celebrated
chief John Ridge and his father, two of
the most prominent persons in the nation,
were most brutally and savagely murder
ed, and that John .Ross, the leader of the
opposition party has, in consequence
thereof, been compelled to take up his
quarters at Fort Gibson for personal se
curity.
From the same soiwceVe also lezgrn
that a Mr. Wright and four children were
inhumanly murdered, about the 26th
June, near Cave Hill, Washington Coun
ty, Ark., for money, as it was supposed.
It was generally believed at Fort Gibson,
that the perpetrators of this act have been
pursued and taken with many others of
notorious character, and that the law will
be disdensed with, and they be disposed
of very summarily by judge Lynch.
The Natchez Free Trader thus states
the. same report: "The steam boat John
Jay arrived yesterday from Fort Gibson,
Little Rock, &c. having left the former
place on Tuesday last. There was some
disturbance among the Indians, arising
from dissatisfaction in regard to the trea
ties made by their government. Major
Riggs, his son, and Boudenot, were kill
ed by one of the three parties into which
they have divided. Ross was at the head
of about 1000 men. He was offered ad
mittance into the fort by Gen, Arbuckle,
but deciined unless his whole party were
included, which was refused."
VISIT OF THE PRESIDENT VIIB NEW
YORK.—The Journal of Commerce of the
3d gives the following account of it:—
"The President of the United States
arrived in this city between 12 and 1 o'
clock, and met with a very flattering re
ception. The order of proceedings, cor
responded with the programma, publish
ed in our last. On passing from Jersey
City to the Battery, he was saluted by
the Forts, and by the U. S. ship N. Car
olina, and other vessels. On landing, he
was saluted from the Battery. We had
not the honor of being at Castle Garden
while the addresses and congratulations
were going on, but we dare say they were
appropriate and cordial. The Garden ap
peared to be crowded with ladies and gen
tlemen. In the mean time several thou
sand persons were collected on the Batte
ry, in addition to the military, who were
out in great numbers, including the first
division of artillery, under Major General
Stanford, and a division ol infantry under
Major General Floyd. They appeared
extremely well.
After being reviewed by the President
on the Battery they escorted him up
Broadway to the City Hall, where he
was received by the Common Council
without distinction of party. The pro
cession was very long, and sufficiently
splendid for a republican country. Com
pany after company, we know not how
many, each varying from the rest in its
style of uniform, followed in long success
ion, till it seemed as if the last would ne
ver come.
At length, however, at the very heel of
the military procession, appeared Mr Van
Buren, on horseback, with his bald head
uncovered, accompanied by the Mayor
and other distinguished citizens.
A civic procession followed in the rear.
When the President reached the vicinity
of Tammany Hall, (which as well as all
other buildings in the vicinity were crowd
ed with spectators,) a general and hearty
cheering rent the air, which he acknowl
edged by sundry acts of obeisance to the
sovereign people.
Altogether the affair went off in excel
lent style, and we are sure he must have
been more than satisfied with his recep
tion. It was such a reception as was due
S .« Ann nnn
to the Chief Magistrate of 16,000,000 of
people. And we are happy to say, that
although the programme appears to have
contemplated little else than a party cele
bration, it was not such in fact. The po
litical opponents of the President were
disposed to pay him respect on account
of his station, if for no other reason.
