3 (J.'Kn VAIB DANIELS, PttN AND MANAGER. - ' Mi. •>•)*] ?1«l» Str««l. Klahanssrl. V« Offlflnl I'apcr for the CoTernment SATURDAY EVENING. MAY 0, 1871. Peace or the Sword.- The President, iv simple, direct, and unmistakable words, informs all masked villaius, and all wick t)l, organized disturbers of tbe peace, that the resource* of authority and the nation's power will bo exhausted, if need be, to re press the*n. This is the right spirit. Tbe strong arm of the United States should be outstretched to ward off harm from the humblest citizeo. Therein is the majesty, the dignity, and tbe glory of the great, free Republic best displayed. The Ku-klux scoundrels may be sure that the President means exactly what he says. We trust tbat they will take warn ing in season. Yet we do not like to use the language of menace. Putting it aside, we appeal to the best citizens in all our Southern couutry to unite with the authorities to check violeuce, quiet agitation, and secure all rights to all men. Tbis result is above the political advancement of any man or of Bny party. Why cau we not work to gether Id this matter for the common good ? If we catmot, then the stern mandate of law must be enforced by the military power of the nation. There must be order, freedom, and safety in the land. —SSS Read the interesting letters of "Ire neaus" from the South, which appear weekly in the New York Observer, pub lished at 37 Park Raw, New York city.

Leslie as their candidate for Governor. On the sixth ballot Leslie received 638 votes agaiust 432 for J. Proc tor Knott, lute representative in Congress. BS» ' — Ex-Governor John Wood, of Illinois, has added his uame to the bright list of American philanthropists. He has jus' donated property valued at a half a mil lion dollars to found a female seminary, to be located at Quincy. . IS. Foster, the brutal murderer of Avery D. Putnam, of New York, will be tried ou Thursday next. Tho public mind in New York ij still greatly excited over tho mur der, and the prisoner will doubtless suffer ths extreme penalty of tho law. 1 The Orleans princes havo a hard time of it. During lhe war between France and Germany they wero distrusted and proscribed, and now they are under the ban of M. Thiers, haviug, it is said, been ordered to leave Versailles. The Duel Between Jackson auil Dick inson. The famous duel betweeu Jackson and Dickinson is generally known, but Parton's Life of tho former gives an interesting ac count of the affair with some circumstances that, are new: Dirkinson's second won the choice of positions, and Jackson's the office of giving the word. Tho astute Overton considered this giving the word a matter of great im portance, and he bad already determined how he would give it, if the lot fell to bim. The eight paces were measured off, and the men placed ; both were perfectly col lected. All the politeness of such "occa sions was strictly and elegantly performed. Jackson was dressed in a loose frock coat, buttoned carelessly over his chest, and concealing in some degree the extreme slendemess of his figure. Dickinson was the younger and handsomer man of the two. But Jackson's tall, erect figure, and the intensity of his demeanor, it is said, gave a most superior commanding air, as he stood under the tall poplars on this bright May morning, silently awaiting the moment of doom. "Are you ready ?" said Overton. "I am ready," said Dickinson. "I am ready," said Jackson. The word was no sooner pronounced, than Overton, with a sudden shout, using his old country pronunciation, cried "Firk." Dickinson raised his pistol quickly aud fired. Overton, who, looking with anxiety and dread at Jackson, saw a puff of dust fly from the breast of bis coat, and saw him raise his left baud, and place it tightly across his chest. He is surely hit, thought Overton, and in a bad place too, but he does not fall. Erect and grim as fate he stood, his teeth clenched, and raised his pistol. Overton glanced at Dickinson. Amazed at the unwonted failure of his aim, and appalled at the awful figure and face before him, Dickinson had uncon sciously recoiled a pace or two. "Great God 1" he faltered, "have I missed him." "Back to the mark, sir," thundered Overton, with his band upon his pistol. Dickinson recovered his composure, stepped forward to the peg, and stood with bis eye averted from his antagonist. All this was but the work of a moment, though it requires many words to tell it. Jackson took deliberate aim, and pulled trigger. The pistol neither snapped nor went off. Ho looked at the trigger, and discovered it had stopped at half-cock.— He drew it back to its place and took aim a second timo. He tired • Dickinson's face blanched; he reeled ; his friends rushed forward and caught him in their arms and gently laid him on ttfe grass, leaning against a bush. His trowser-s red dened. They stripped off his clothes.— Tbe ball passed through below his ribs. Such a wound could not be but fatal. Overton went forward to and learned the condition of tho wounded man. Re joining his principal he said : "lie won't want any more of you, General," aud con ducted him from the ground. They had gone an hundred yards, Overton walking on one side of JacKson, the other surgeon ou tbe other, when the surgeon observed tbat one ot Jackson's shoes was filled with blood. "Ob, I believe he pricked me a little. Let's look at it. But say nothing about it thera," pointing t.i the house. Ha opened his coat. Dickinson's aim bad beeu perfect. He had sent tbe ball erecitely where he had Hifposed Jackson's Hurt was beating. But the thinness of body and the loopenesw of hia coat combin ing to deceive Dickinson, the ball had only broken a rib or two and raked the breast bone It was a somewhat pvt.ful, bad looking wound, but neither Mtero or dan gerous, and be was able to ride to the tavern without much locoftteuh nee. Upon approaching the house, be went to one of the negro women who was churning, and asked if the butter had come. She said it wab coming. He asked for some butter milk. While she was getting it for him, she observed bim furtively opeu his court and look within. She saw hia shirt was soaked with blood, and stood gassing in blank Horror at the sight, dipper in hand. He caught her eye aud hastily buttoned up his coat again. She dipped out a quart measure full of butter-mill; and gave it to him. He drank it off at a draught, then went iv aud took off his coat and had his wound carefully exam ined and dressed. That done he dispatch ed one of his retinue to Dr. Catlet, to in quire respecting the couditiou of Dickin son, and to say that the surgeon attending himself would be glad to tender his aid to Mr. Dickinson's relief. Polite reply was returned that Dr. Dickinson's case was be yond eurgery. In the course of tho day Jackson sent a bottle of wine to Dr. OH* let, for the use of bis patient. But there was ono gratification that Jackson could not, even in such circum stances, grant him. A vory old friend of Jackßon's writes to mo thus: "Although the General had been wounded, ho did not .desire it to bo known uutil he had left the vicinity, and therefore he had concealed it first from his friends. His reason for doing this, as he ouce stated to me, was that, aa Dickiuson considered himaelf the best shot in the world, and was certain of killing him the first fire, he did not want him to have the gratification even of know ing ho had hit him."' Eioht Men Drdwned.—A life-boat be longing to Tort Niagara got adrift during tho galo yesterday, and a boat, manned by Bix soldiers and Lieutenants L. G. Ashbury and J. C. Morris, started in pursuit, but their boat was capsized and all were- lost. REPUBLICAN NAHONAL PLATFORM. lhe National Republican party of tbe United States, assembled in National Conveution in tbo city ol Chicago, on the 21st day of May, ISOO, make the following declaration of principles : 1. Wo congratulate the country on tho assured success of the reconstruction policy of Congress, as eTiucod hy tbe adoption, in the majority of the State*] lately iv rebeliiou,of constitutions securing equal civil aud political rights to all; and it is the duty of tho Government to sustain those institutions and to prtm'tit tbo people of such Status from being remitted to a Btato of anarchy. 2. The guarauty by Congress of equal suffrage to all loyal meu at the South was demanded by overy consideration of public pnfety, of gratitude, aud of justice, aud must be maintained; while tbe question of t-uffrogo in all the loyal Status properly bolongs to the peoplo of those States. 3. We denounce all forms of repudiation as a na tional crime; and the national honor requires the payment of the public indebtedness in the utter most good faith to all creditors at home and abroad, not only according to letter, but tbe spirit ofthe laws under which it was contracted. 4. It is due to the labor ofthe nation that taxa tion should be equalized, and reduced ai rapidly as the national faitu will permit. 6. The national deb!, contractod as it has been for the preservation of tbe Uniou for all time to come, should bo extended over a fair period for redemption; and it is the dnty of Congress to reduce the rate of interest thereou, whenever it can be bonoßtly done. C. That the bost policy to diminish our burden of debt ii to so improve our credit that capitalists wi-1 seek to loan us money at lower rates uf interest than we now pay, and must coutlnuo to pay so long as re pudiation, partial or total, opeu or covert, is threat ened or suspected. 7. The Government of tbe United States should ho administered with the strictest economy; and the corruptions which have been so shamefully nursed and festered by Andrew Johnson call loudly for radi cal reform. 8. Wo profouudly deplore tbe untimely and tragic death of Abraham Lincoln, and regret tbe accession to the Presidency cf Andrew Johnson, who has acted treacherously to tbo peoplo who elected him-and tho cause he was pledged to support; who has usurped high legislative aud judicial functions; who lias re fused to execute tbe laws; who has used hU Mgh oflice to induco other officers to ignore and violate the laws; who bas employed bis executivo powers to render insecure the property, tbe peace, liberty and life of tho citizon ; who has abused the pardon ing power; who has denounced the national legisla ture as unconstitutional; who has persistently and corruptly resloted, by every, means iv his power, every proper attempt at the rocoi.Btructlou of the States lately in rebellion; who has perverted the public patronage into an ongino of wholesale cor ruption; and who has been Justly impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and properly pro nounced guilty thereof by the vote of thirty-five Senators. 9. The doctrine ol Great Britain and other Eu ropean powers, that because a man is once a subject he is always so, must be resisted at overy hazard by the Uait.id States, as a relic uf feudal times, not au thorized by the laws of rations, aud at war with our national honor aud iudependence. Naturalized cit izens are entitled to protection in all their rights ol citizenship, as though they were native-boru; and no citizen of tbe United States, nativo or natural ized, must be liable to arrest and imprisonment by any foreign power for acts done or words spoken in this country ; and, if bo arrested and imprisoned, it is the duty of tbe Government to iuterfere in his be half. 10. Of all who were faithful In the trials of the late war, there were none entitled to more especial honor than tho brave soldiers and ceamen who en dured tbe hardships of campaign aud cruise, and im perilled their lives in the service ofthe country; the bounties and pensions provided hy the lawß for these brave defenders of tbo natiou are obligations never to bo forgotten ; the widows aud orphans of the gallant dead are tho wards of the people—a sa cred legacy bequeathed to tbe nation's protecting care. 11. Foreign immigration, which in the past has added so much to the wealth, developement, and re sources, and increase of power to this republic, tho asylum of the oppressed of all nations, should be fostered and encouraged by a liberal and just policy. 12. This conveution declares itself in i-ympathy with all oppressed peoples struggling for their rights. 13. That we highly commeud the spirit of mag nanimity and ioibearanco with which mon who have served In the rebellion, but who now frankly and honestly co-operate with us in restoring the peace of tho country and reconstructing the South ern State governments upon the basis of impartial justice and equal rights, are received back into the communion of the loyal people; and we favor the removal of the db-qua'.ificatious and restrictions im posed upon the late rebels in the same measure as the spirit of disloyalty will die ont, and as may be con sistent with the safety of the loyal people. 14. That we recognize the great principles laid down in the immortal Declaration of Independence, as the truo foundation of democratic government and we hail with gladness evory effort toward mak ing these principles a living reality on every inch of American set I.
