TliADDEUS OF WARSAW Miss Porter's novel, in 3 volumes, entitled ** Tliaddrus of Warsaw" lias been some months before the American public, and is generally considered a work of very considerable merit — The admirers, of these volumes will no doubt be pleased to hear that the principal character in' trouuccd by Miss Por i > «, Thaddeua Sobieski is at this time rc-aiding in the state of Virginia, . gaming a subsistence, as Miss P. states him to have done m London, by drawing, and ornamen tal painting. The writer of this article, saw and conversed with him a tew weeks since ; and although no piTH)1 ol his identity was askvd or given, yet va rious concurrent circumstances place the be I ref of h;j being the person referred to beyond question. Sobicski remarked, that the ground work of the novel was founded on truili ; but that Miss P. had greatly raised and embellished the super structure. The old General, Uulzou, was a reut character, and d.ed in the arms of Sobieski, at Southampton, und not in London as Miss P. has stated ; neither was Sobie>ki at any tune ot his life in London.—Norwich Courier The first duel fought in Ni w-England, accor ding to Morse und Parish, was between twd ser Vants, with sword and dagger. Both we>e woun ded, neithei mortally They were tried by the colony and sentenced “ to have their heads and feet tied together, and to remain 24 hours, with out meat or tlrii k.” We suspect this mode ot punishment would be u much more etiectual preventative of the practice of duelling, than a ny now in iashiun.
