Is Duelling Really Jtorbarouu 1
We have decided to say a few words
on this subject, wbioh seems lately to
havo occupied bo much of tho time of
the courts. We con feat that we feel
sincere regret that the framors of our
ne>? Constitution Baw fit to make such
stringent regulations against what, in
derisiou, our latter day-reformers are
pleased to sneer at as the "Code of Hon
or " It was a sad thing to be overcome in
battle and forced to surrender our arre
to the conqueror, but a sadder day awaits
us when we ?hull allow the customs of
our enemies to be engrafted on our fo
ciety, causing the civilization which
was one* our pride and boast, to give
way to their so called higher civiliza
The civilisation that will make war
upon gaining at Faro Bank and Rou
lette, but holds in high esteem the rascal
who successfully robs a corporation or
ruins tho unsophisticated by stock gam
bling and futuies The civilization tbat
argues that female virtue that can be
?educed in not worth protecting. A civ
ilization that counsels a man when he
is accused of lying to accuse baok again
and thus gets even. The civilization
that laughs at honor and scoffs at family
pride. For our part we prefer th) so
ciety of former days. A cooiety where
no mnu could rise who lacked integrity.
Where incu had to pay that homage to
truth n'tich made them "assume a vir
t uc if they had it not."
A society where a prompters* to repel
aggression was accompanied by a cor
responding sensitiveness to tho rights
of others. In short, a soeiety where the
rude of honor was fully recognized at
the rule among gentlemen to be resortep
to for the defence of oharacter and repu
tation. Until men become better Chris J
tians, until the time shall come whon
all will love one another too well to in.
fringe ujKJuxaUh utiiere^rT^ata? the code
of honor must exist in all high tonel
and well regulated society. VVe contend
that it is a Christian code, and just
as defensible and justifiable as war. We
contend that a chrutian minister is fully
na much justified in defending hi.' honor
under the code as he would be in accept
ing the captaincy of a company to fight
the enemies ol his country. We would
not fight a duel, unless the affront was
of such a grave charuotcr as to rest
under it would destroy our usefulness to
society aud the good name we desire to
leave our children The Code of Honor
strictly adhered to never allows a fatal
termination to a quarrel, unleui under
tireuinstnuoes when such had blood has
been aroused as would otherwise termin
ate in a street fight, thus endangering
tho livos of others aud involving the
frionds and relatives in a long and
bloody vendotta. it is ignorance of th j
Code which make- men ridicule it. We
can demonstrate that there is scarcely a
single instance to be referred to where
a duel has terminated fatally whero ev
en such a result was not tho lest for
society under the impcrfeotions of our
human ty. We do not allude to ca
ses where tho code has been violate 1
and deuth of one or both parties baa
heen the .es ilt. We assort that when
the Code is fully recognized and strictly
adhered to, there aro very few quarrels
that arise among gentleman thatoa i
not bo settled by it. We like the todc
because it keeps us out of difficulties
with blackguards, and wo know
full well that will settle any
trouble or misunderstanding that
may occur with gentlemen. In other
words, wc like it because it keeps us out
of fights. It is an impartial peace-ma
kcr, and therefore we call it a Christian
code. It takes a quarrel out of the
hands of those who are offended an 1
prejudiced against each other, and places
it in the management of those who have
but one aim, and that is peace. We
assert again that theonde, strictly foll
owed, will settle nearly alt difficulties,
aud only wren it is viol; ted do t' ese
unhappy results follow wbioh arouse the
sympathy of the community for the un
fortunate sad bring down the usual
outburst of prejudice against the cods. |
Take for instance, the case which occur-1
red in Virginia very recently. Mr. Mo
Carty has some misunderstanding with a
much admired young lady. They meet
at a ball; they dance togotber. A few
days after a pieee of poetry appears i n
the Eoqoiror. It is read and discuss
ed st the elnb Some one remarks thst
? the poetry has a personal allusion. Mr.
Mordecjj denounce* the author. Mr.
M Cany de lares himself the author,
but docs not feel oallel upon to say
whether It has a personal allusion or not.
He is challenged bj Mordeiai. He
reoogoiaea the Code and refuses to fight
because he dees not admit that Mr.
Mordccai baa any right to assume the
quarrel. To admit it, would be to bold
himself ready to fight every man in Vir
ginia who chose to espouse- the lady's
cause. Hera the Code actually preven
ted these high spirited young men froaj>|
coming together. Mordeoai walks into
the billiard room and overhears remarks
that be assumes are meant for him.?
Instead of a resort to the code and re
quiring an explanation, which no doubt
would bare been given, and thus settled
tbj difficulty, be loses his temper and
j ives MoCarty a severe personal chas
tisement. Now matters bad reached a
point that the cods was the most humane
mode of settling.?Without a resort to
it, a street fight would certainly have
followed, sod perhaps to dsy the fight
would be still going on between their
respective frionds. As it is Mordeoai
falls, aud the community sympathises
and the matter ends.

lien lies down with the Iamb, then, and
not till then will men cease to qusr

Feck's Sewing Machine.
A Mr. Peck had lung entertained the
ides that he could invent a self acting
?ewiog machine, aud he did. Ha pro
cured a steel ribbon spring about twenty
feet long, and ot sufficient power to ruu
a horse car. This he rigged on his wife's
sawing machine with a lot of clockwork,
and it appeared to htm, when be finished
the job that evening, that he had realis
ed his hopes. If any sewing machine
ever would go that one would, as ho
wound it up ready for use in the morn
ing, and went to bed. At four o'clock
Mrs Peck aroused him, aud told him to
listen to the burglars in the house. He
listened and heard a most terrific racket
in tbo sitting-room. It appeared to him
that there must be a million burglurs
refreshing themselves with n prise-fight.
So he loaded his gun, crept softly over,
and peeped through a crack in the door.
It was not burglars, it was Mrs. Peck's
sewing machine. The (peg had slipped
out sud that spring was having foil
play. It would rear the machine up on I
one end and charge it three or four
times like a battering-ram against the
glass front of tho book case ; then it I
would .wheel around and suddenly tear
across the room,* butt up against the !
maotelpicee, and it would lie dowu and
roll over the floor, and hammer the sofa,
tear up the carpet, and boost the center
tabU and try and jam a hols through
the wall, and then endeavor to leap up
on >tbe chandelier. Then as Peck
entered the room, it flew at him, and
tore in and out between his lege, the
wheel revolving like lightning all the
time, and the spring gradually unwind
ing. And then Peck retreated and the '
family all got up aud got a mattress off
the bed, with which they oovered the
machine, and sat on it for a while, but
finally pushed it out of the window into
the yard, where Peok piled boxes and
ash barrels and slop buckets aod fence
palings and wagon wheels on to it to
keep it still. But ell night ander the
heap it kept up a continual buss and
snort and buna, so eh a* one of Mr Bird

Marriage In Judge Cooked Court.
-"As It Should Bo" shall bo the tide
of our next novel, and wo shall weave
the troubles, the fortunes aud the nfflio
tiuns of Cornelius Arnold snd Sarah
Samuels into the woof of our story. We
all know the misery snd wretchedness
occasioned t>j untimely snd Improper
marriages, snd the too solicitous care of]
parenta; but s father's "phiz" inoppor
tunely thrust in upon the sceno of our
pleasures and joys inspires a degree of
recklessness productive of the worst
consequences. The truth of the matter
is, "papa" has no business snuffing about
for some token of a daughter's disobe
dience, and, if he should get knocked
down occasionally, he would learn a
little caution, if not a proper sense of ]
Stephen Samuels bad a daughter, a
lovely girl, in whom he confided, and
whom he loved with all a father's devo
tion. He had oared for her, and trusted
that in the evening of life she, at least,
would be left him to smooth his passage
to the grave. But, alas ! love is more1
powerful than a father's counsel, and
Cornelius Arnold' rose before Sarah
Samuels' enraptured imagination?the
beau ideal of all that was beautiful,
lovely and of good report. Stephen
Samuels' mature charms sank into
insignificance when compered with the
bliss of Cornelius Arnold's companion
ship and the fruition of his lore. Trust
ing in the strength of Cornelius Arnold's
attachment, and recliuing upon hi*
powerful arm, Sarah bade farewell to
her old home, with all its sacred and
endearing associations, aud conscious of
the devotiou that supported her through
ail the critical period of love and oourt
sbip, she mailed out upon an untried
stream, "heart within, and God o'er
Tho course of true love never runs
smoothly, aud the affection that a fath
er's counsel and advice could not eon
trol was about to be rebuked by tho
dread thunders of the law. Stephen1
Satuuels no longer rested upon his ovo
resources; but summoning the dignity
and power of tho State of South Caroli-.
ua to his aid, relcutleasly pursued the
disturber of his dogtgsjio pe^ss^spd
tranquillity. The dogs of war were
loosed, and in the end Cornelius ?rsol 1
stood. before the Court of Sessions for
Abbeville county, indicted for the high
crimo and misdemeanor of "ubductiug
a woman child."
Here the matter rested for sometime
Learned lawyers whetted the edged tools
they are accustomed to use in the foreu
sic arenu and prepared for the contest of
the people's rights against tho encroach
ments of a disturber of society. The
J udgc looked wise, and began dcliberat
ing in his own mind the penalty ho
would inflict should Cornelius Arnold
be provsn guilty of the high crime with
which he stood charged. | Loafers, busy
bodies and reporters thronged the corri
dors of the temple of justice, descanting
upon the prob?ble issue of the case, and
aching for a glimpse of the cause of so
muob gossip. At l?st all were gratified
The bustle of preparation became appa
rent, and the Judge announced-'The
State vs. Cornelius Arnold."
Col. Thomas Thomson, who represent
cd the prisoner, rose and insinuatingly
suggested to the Court that the cas-j be
noLprotted; that he had the thing dead,
and, to avoid increasing the expenses
sttaehod to litigation, had prevailed up
on Stephen Samuels, the father, to allow
the marriage of Sarah Samuels, the
daughter, to Cornelius Arnold, the pil
ferer, and recommended that bis Honor
act the part of master of ceremonies.
The Court waa taken abaok by this un
expected turn of things, snd on Corne
lius and Sarah plighting their troth, and
Stephen giving his consent, Cornelius
and Sarah took their stand nt the bar and
were made one flesh. Tho remarks of
his Honor were well timed snd appro
priate?the only thing lacking, In our
opinion, being a prayer for God's bless
ing upon the hsppy couple. The closing
seutence of tho Judge's charge to the
married pair was full of good advice,and
with "Go sod sin no more" ringing in
their esrs, Cornelius Arnold and Sarah
Samuels wander down the cool, toques
tared rale of life, one in aim and one in
sympathy- Hsppy consummation of
their dearest hopes and
"hole be your baart. bale be your fiddle,
Loss may your elbuck jink aod diddle, ' ;vq*t
Aye! obeeiy through this weary riddle
Of war'ly oare,
Until your bairns' bairnskindly caddie
Your auld grey hair."
This incident of our court, as we have
tersely aud simply related it, possesses
the beauty of truth and the fesoiaatioa
of romance. Occurring as it did la the
midst of a dull routine of legal prone-?"? Al
dure, it stands unparalleled in the his*
tory of marriages in South Carolina. It wl
was an interesting and novel episode, and
served to quicken the wits mud brighten
the genius of the gentlemen of the Bar.
Colonel Thomson, in this as in evory.
thing else that he undertakes, has achiev
ed new laurels, and stands pre emient SJ .
a match-maker. In his new field of la*
bor we wish him unbounded success,
and posterity will scoord to him the fall
meed of honor and of praise that he so
richly deserves.?Abbeville Medium.
