Anon. A THRILLING INCIDENT. Among the perilous scenes of the heavy gale which caused such wide spread disas ter to our lake shipping, about a fortnight since, (says the Buffalo Commercial,) one thas come to our knowlege equalling in in terest the most highly wrought tale of fic tion. In that fearful night the steamboat Constitution, Capt, Appleby, was out amidst the terrors of the gale. By the glimpses caught at intervals, when the fitful storm for a moment broke away, the anxious and watchful commander was made aware of the critical situation of his boat, which was rap pidly drifting in under the hurricane pow er of the gale, which blew almost directly across the lake toward a dangerous reef, from which escape would be impossible. He went directly to the engineer, and or dered on "more steam." The reply of the engineer, was that there was already as much on as the boilers would safely bear. Again did the captain seek the deck, to see if his labouring boat was making head- portance to come to" a right conclusion, we deem it not amiss to offer to our readers a few remarks for their consideration. The reason why the money price of labor is high in the United States is that it is aided to so great an extent by capital, skill and in telligence, and therefore produces a large quantity of the commodities for which other nations are willing to give gold and silver; and the reason why its price is low in India and France, is that there is an absence of capital, skill and intelligence, and the la borer produces a very small quantity of com modities to be exchanged with other nations for the precious metals. We do not pay a mechanic or a laborer high wages because he chooses to demand them, but because we know that we can obtain from him in return some com odity that we can exchange for the price tnat we have paid, and with prof it as a compensation Jbr our trouble. In those countries in which the money price of labor is high, the capitalist is enabled tolive well, and rapidly to increase his means as in England and in the U. S. In those in which it is low, the capitalist cannot live so well , nor is there so rapid an increase of capital. Such is the case in India and m France. To the capitalist, therefore, the la bor of the U. S. and England is cheap, al though he pays a high price for it, because it yields largely; while that of France and India is dear, although low priced, because it yields so little. - In confirmation of this view we will now way, and again returned to the engine room, call attention to the fiot, that in the manafac He explained to the engineer their hazard- ture of cotton and in the sailing of ships, we ous situation, and told him that all hope was care nothing for the competition of India, or lost if no more headway could be gained but left the engineer to act at his discretion in the crisis. A moment of reflection and his decision was made. Life or death hung on the issue. Certain destruction awaited of the nations on the Baltic, where labor is lowr-priced and unproductive, but we do care for thecompetition of England whose labor is almost as highpriced as our own; and Eng land looks with more anxiety to our compe- the boat and her7 devoted crew, in a fewbrief tition in every department of industry than to minutes, u sne aid not gain upon tne driving mat oi any otner nataion ot the world, al storm. JVhis might be asserted, if the boilers alrerady crowded to a fearful pressure . could yet bear a heavier strain, and that he determined to try. True, the awful hor rors of an explosion were vividly before him the mangled limbs, the scorched and "lifeless bodies, the death shrieks, and the groans of the helpless victims, were before his eyes arid on his ear the alternative was a fearful one yet it must be resorted to. He coolly directed the heads of two bar rels of oil to be broken in, and the furnaces were rapidly fed with wood dipped in the jngmy mnamaDie liquid, wnne two men with ladles dashed the oil into the flames. The intense heat which these combustibles created, genarated steam with the rapidity of djghtning, and soon the resistless vapor forcexl up the safety valve, and. issued forth with tremendous violence, its sharp hissing heard aboYe-thejvild uproar of the waters and the storm. With a desperate and deter mined courage, which equalled the most da ring heroism that the page of history ever recorded, the engineer, sat down upon the level of the safety valve, to confine and raise the steam to the necessary power required to propel the boat against the drift ing waves: In this awful situation he calm ly remained, until the prodigious efforts of the engine had forced the Constitution suffi ciently offshore to be beyond the threatened danger, This intrepid act was not a rash and vain glorious attempt to gain the applause of a multitude by a iooi-hardy exposure of his ine, in some racing excursion. it was not of stern republicanism, no body thought of Congress furnishing the President's, house; cr if perchance such a thought did enter into some aristocratic head, it was too unpopular to be uttered. President Washington, therefore, rented a house of Mr. Robert Morris, in Market street, between Fifth and Sixth streets, on the south, side, and furnished it handsomely, but not gorgeously. There he lived with Mrs. Wash ington, Mr. Lear, his private secretary and his wife, and Mrs. Washington's grandson, Curtis, making a part of the family. Young Curtis had a private tutor employed by the President, who was engaged to attend on his pupil one hour in the winter mornings, be fore breakfast; & who then commonly break fisted with' the President and his family. The President ate Indian cakes for breakfast, after the Virginia fashion; although buck wheat cakes were generally on the table. Washington's dining parties 'were enter tained in a very handsome style. His week ly dining day for company, was Thursday, and his dining hour was always four o'clock in the afternoon. His rule was to allow five minutes for the variation of clocks and watches, and then to go to the table, be pres ent or absent, whoever might. He kept his own clock in the hall, just within the out ward door, and always exactly regulated. Whenlouging members of Congress come in as they often did, after the gu sts had sat doAvri to dinner the President's only apology was, "Lxentlemen, or bir, we are too punctu al for you. I have a cook who never asks whether the company has come, but wheth er the hour has come." The company usually assembled in the drawing room, about fifteen or twenty min utes before dinner, and the President spoke to every guest personally on entering the room. He was always dressed in a suit of black, his hair powdered and tied in a black bag behind, with a very elegant dress sword which he wore with inimitable grace Mrs. Washington-often, but not always, dined with the company, sat at the head of the table, and if, as was occasionally the case, there were other ladies present, they sat on each side of. her. The private secretary sat at the foot of the table, and was expected to be specially attentive to all the guests.

The duel which some months since was agreed to be fought opposite Vicksburg, Miss., on Saturday the 30th December, by of Departments. he notorious duellist, M' Clung,, and Mr. Menifee, a merchant of Vicksburg, and bro ther of the member of Congress from Ken tucky, transpired on the day appointed. The reason of the long delay before the parties met, was, that they might have time to wind up their earthly affairs; as the con ditions under which they were to meet, ren dered it more than probable that both par ties would fall. The history of the diffi culty has been told us as follows: That M'- 1 I'll Clung, from some cause, co winded or as saulted Menifee, Avho, (probably anxious to avail himself of the advantages of the chal- lengee, knowing the duelling character of M' Clung with a pistol to be a "dead shot,") afterwards sought- M Clung ma grocery, t7 KJ mf and beating him most unmercifully, finally kicked him into the street. M Clung chal lenged, and Menifee accepted, with rifles at forty yards. Menifee was shot above the eye; his adversary's ball, as is supposed, having struck the cock of his rifle s lock af ter he had pulled the trigger, but before the cock had struck the percussion cap, the re sistance of the ball so deadened its force, that although it fell upon the cap, it failed to ex plode it. The ball glanced, and its indented or flat side struck Menifee above the eye, and wound around between the skull and the skin, to the back of his head, where it was extracted. When M' Clung saw him fall, he raised his rifle and kissed it ; at which Menifee's second remarked to him, that he might be premature in caressing his rifle, as Menifee was not killed to which he replied, " I'm G d d d glad of But no man in his senses could for a mo- ment suppose that tney lose tneir ngnts as citizens by being thus invested with the high trusts of the country.

The centre of the table contained five,pr six large silver or plated waiters those at the ends circular or rather oval at the one" side, so as to make the arrangement corres pond with the oval shape of the table. The waiters between the end pieces were in the form of parrallelograms, the ends about one tare of silk, in which we may reasonably third part the length of the sides; and the suppose, that capita skill and intelligence will produce the same effects that have been exhibited in every other department of pro duction in which the people of the United States have been engaged, when not driven thereto by legislative restrictions.
