' "At! ) The Reliable Particulars of the Potter Pryor Ducllcas Duel. A special Washington dUpatoli to the New York Timet givoa what its correspondent de clares may be relied on as the entirely cor rect details : Mr. Fryer1! first note was handed t Mr. Potter by Xr. Hindman, In th prrlencs of Mr. Cbaw. of Indiana. Mr, Potter ft.Wed the aotst And ifter the voteod the question pond ing, left the hall. Weeing his wife, he re quested her to return home, as he would dine out. She remarked that she understood him, and entering her carriage drove off. He took another, and proceeded to the room of the Hon.- Mr. Washburn. - This wits about four o'clock on Wednesday ttftUrtioari. lie did not see his Wife again Until this afternoon, put did not leave the District,. Mr. Hindman having to leave for Arkansas on account of sickness in his family, Messrs, Keitt and Miles were called in as Mr. PrVor's adviHers. Messrs. Grow, C. O. Washburn, Israel Wash oufn, and Hickman, and Senators Chandler and w adc, were Mr. Potter's advisers. Col. F. W. Lander was agreed on as Mr, Potter's friend; Mr. Chisman as Mr. Pryort. Potter reduced his -advisers to Senator Wade and Hon. C. C. Washburn, and then referred Mr. Chisman to Colonel Lander. The latter informed Mr. Chisman that he had verbal instructions to say In reply to Mr. Pryor's note that Mr. Potter declined leaving the District, as the Constitution of Wiscon sin visited him with the penalties of the anti duelling law wherever he might go, and it was but fair Mr. Pryor should encounter the same, according to the law of this District. Mr. Chisman inquired If Mr. Potter would accept a challenge in tho District, which was promptlr answered in tho' affirmative, and tbe challenge as promptly delivered demand ing the satisfaction usual among gentlemen. Mr. B. F. Beale being chosen by Mr. Lander as his associate in the matter, visited 'Mr. Potter to learn his wishes and receive in structions. Mr. Potter replied in writing to Col. Lander, through Mr. Beale, that he did not acknowledge the' code, and consid ered it barbarous and inhuman, but inas much, as his life was sought and as the liberty of speech was involved, he was willing to risk nit in order city for to He The iU and the has the of person to prevent a bloody affray upon the floor of tho House, which otherwise seemed inevitable. His choice of weapons would bo Bowie-knives, leaving other matters to his friends. Mr. Chisman returning for a reply to Mr. Pryor's note, received a note from Col. Lander, stating that they would meet them with Bowie-knives of equal size and weight and length of blade, either in a room or in tho open air, all par ties to be excluded except two seconds on each side; the seconds to be armed each with one navy revolver; tho distance between principals four feet, and the word to be given by the second winning it on top of a piece of money, and the fight to take jplace at some time within twelve honrs. ' The challenge was received at three o'clock yesterday after noon, and the reply was delivered to Chisman at eight o'clock last night.. . , . After advising with Senator Hunter and other friends of Mr. Pryor, the latter having in the meantime taken post in Alexandria, replied that the terms proposed wero inad missable and unusual, and he acknowledged no such mode of settling difficulties between gentlemen, as they were vulgar, barbarous and inhuman, and suggested that Mr, Lan dei's principal should offer other terms. Mr. Lander rejoined that the instructions from Mr. Potter had been followed, but that Mr. Chisman'a letter conveyed reflections upon hit principal, who had distinctly announced that he did not recognize the code, but who had not placed himself behind the last resort of the non-duelist, vis: A simple defense if attacked on the streets, and reiterated the terms of tbe meeting. ' , .' .. r Mr. Chisman again replied, that inasmuch as he bad acknowledged that Mr. Potter would not defend himself upon the street, and their terms were such as could hot be accepted, they thanked him and Mr. Beale for their courtesy in the affair, and dropped the correspondence; Mr; Lander, aowever, answered that his statement had been mis construed, and that Mr. Potter would defend himself everywhere; and further, that .inas much as the terms proposed bad been stigma tized as barbarous, vulgar and inhuman, thereby retracting upon liimsell'and his prin cipal, without consulting and without the knowledge of Mr. Potter, he placed himself in Mr. Potter's position, and having no scru ples in regard to the code, would meet them on their own terms. This was about three o'clock this morning. . . 1. . . At seven, areply was sent to Col. Lander that Mr. Pryor had no quarrel with him, and that they intended no reflection by the terms of their note, and therefore declined the offer of CoL Landerv It must be borne in mind that this correspondence was carried on without any direct knowledge on the part of the prin cipals. Copies of the letters have since been placed in their bands, and some apprehensions are still felt as to the course they may pursne. The whole affair has thus far been conducted with the greatest prudence and secrecy, and the above is as reliable as any information can be outside of a publication of the corre spondence itself. , Mr. Potter is warmly congratulated by his friends, while Mr. Pryor, who has just re turned to the otty, is still in consultation with hi"- " " - of is one the but that he the one the tbe It the be we 1 in the D the .- Tbb Rboknt Bakk Sobbbbt at Columbus, Ga.

TnugH he 14 in this attending Id hit editorial dtitie'e1; from Monday afternoon to Friday evening, he re sides in New Haven.

The In terest Of Mr: Halltck Itt thU Journal of Com merce is of itself a fortune, he ami hit two owning about three quarters of the es tablishment, from which they alone have an income of $30,000 to $40,000 a year. Not withstanding this great worldly success, Gerard Hallock is one of the most modest of men, and he is what it is hard for an editor be now-a-days. (in this city at least.) a sin cere Christian, Mr. Hallock it worth about $300,000. and the richest editor we have, next to James Gordon Bennett, who is esti mated at $600,000, or just double. Horace Greeley is by no means a rich man. has not the faculty of keeping money, though I dare any he makes it fast enough. Timet ia not as yet a pay ing concern like rivals, the Herald and Tribune. It will be when it gets a few more years on its head wrinkles on its brow. The Brookses, of Exprett, are both becoming rich. They both married money South, one near Rich mond, the other in Washington. Besides, under their management, the Exprett has been made quite profitable, and has been car ried on at the least possible expense. James Brooks is usually set down at about $80,000, aside from the estate of his wife, and Erastus cannot be worth less than $46,000 to $50,000.

Political and Religious Troubles in Rome. Annexed is an extract from a letter dated Rome, March 23, published in the New York Timet: We are in tho midst of groat excitement here, as well as great enjoyment. The Ro man people are tnoroughly roused and ex cited, and fully determined to have their lib erty. They would make mighty short work it, were it not for the ten thousand French troops kept here by Napoleon. At it is, there constant trouble. Every few days the peo ple make a "demonstration." It it merely rumored about that there will be a demon stration on a certain day, perhaps on the Corto. (the principal street in Rome,) or per haps just outside the-Porta Pica, (the name of 01 tne city gates.) un tne appointed day appointed place will bo found crowded with people well dressed; some walking, some riding, many of the nobles, many of the middle classes, many of the poar all there doing nothing tout van be taken hold of, only walking; and riding quietly, yet showing there is a unity of feeling among the people. These demonstrations have been growing so numerous of late as to excite the of the poor old Pope and his party, and has given orders to nis soldiers to attack people upon the slightest provocation. About two hundred and fifty were wounded day last week, and fourteen lie now at hospital, who are seriously cut and slashed. The French troops came to the rescue, or Papal soldiers would have been killed. ia said that there ia to be a more daring de monstrations to-morrow, Sunday. The peo ple are going to St. Peter's Church to sing Te Deum in honor of the annexation of Tuscany to Sardinia! If they do it, they will certainly be attacked by tbe Papal guard the moment they leave the church, and there will bloody work. 1 thought I should be afraid while here, but I begin to hope that tbe climax may be reached while are on the spot. One feels indignant and outraged at the continual reports of tyranni cal restrictions laid upon tho people, and in contrasting the extreme poverty of the half starving lower classes with the purple and fold magnificence of the haughty cardinals, tell you, American blood rises, and old '76 comes out airain even in the hearts of women. feel like crying "go if to the people, and 1 'don't wish them to stop a minute on my ac count. , Extraordinary Maternal Precocity A Girl K scouts a Mother BaroRB hb Elev enth Year. Among the illigitimate births Massachusetts in the year 1858, one case ia worthy of especial notice, in consequence of extreme youth of the mother. Elizabeth was born of native parents, in the alms-house at Taunton, May 24, 1847, and at same place she became the mother of a healthy boy, on the first day of February. 1858, being only ten yean, eight months ana teven duyt old. This is a rare case in that climate, but it is well attested by the physi cian of the Alms-houBo at Taunton, who officiated professionally both at the birth of young motner, ana tnat ot her child. The boy weighed eight pounds at birth, and the age of eighteen months thirty-seven a half pounds, and was in the enjoyment robust health, Thi Tbadb in Hba Elephant Oil. A schooner has itely arrived in Newport, Rhode Island harbor, from a cruise" after tea elephant oil in the vicinity of the Desolation Islands, situated west of Cane Horn, between that and the Straits of Magellan. This branch fishery is said to be superseding somewhat, late years, the whale fishery, and is quite successful. Ten vessels were on the coast when the schooner sailed two ships, three barques and five schooners. Oue of the ships on board 3,300 barrels of oil, and the other 3,000. One bark had 1,800 barrels, and other was full. The schooners generally operate as tenders to tbe larger vessels, being employed for navigating the smaller rivers, where the tea elepnant abounds. The oil it tried out on shore, and then carried by the schooners on board the heavier craft, which moored in deeper water. i .1 1. 1 ' aa ' Baron Maoaulat'b Titlb. Lord Macau lay's title, like many other things attributed deep policy, teems to have been an unpre meditated affair. In one of hit letters to Mr. Adam Black, he says: "The letter in which Palmerston informed me of the Queen's per mission to offer me a peerage took me alto gether by surprise. I made up my ' mind very speedily, but I had. I own, serious ap prehension that both Palmerston and my self would be blamed by a large part of the public.' It ia, therefore, most gratifying to to find that both offer and acceptance generally approved." In the same cor respondence he declares: "I am not rich; I on the point of laying down my carriage, leaving my bouse, breaking up my establish ment, and settling in chambers," (1841); so it is probable a large portion of the estate left ($400,000) was derived from the profits the Uittory of England.

Political and Religious Troubles in Rome. Remarkable Thirty-years' Love--Affair in Scotland-An Court and Establishes Her Connubial Claim. An Englith paper relates the following in A late issue: In the Edinburgh Court of Session, oil Fri day, Mrs. Catherine Mitchell, or Leslie, en tered a snit to have it declared that she was a wife Of the Ute Rev, Catchart Leslie, min ister of the parish of Borthwick, near Edin burgh. In 1822 an attachment arose between the parties, and they entered into an engage ment of marriage in December of that year. Mr. Leslie, who was a student of divinity, was then about twenty-two years of age, and the fact qf the engagement of the parties was communicated by both of them to the pur suer's father in 1823, aha Was approved of by him. It was recommended that tbe marriage should be deferred till Mr. Leslie became a minister, Ha became assistant to a minister in 1827, and lit that year the two formally accepted of each other at husband and wife, but it was agreed to keep the marriage secret till he was placed in a church. There was no evidence of this alleged verbal contract, except in the change of the terms of their correspondence, wherein Mr. Leslie invaria bly subscribed himself as ber husband, and used the name aud subscription of Catherine Leslie, and this they continued to do for thirty years, letters being interchanged be tween them at least weekly. Mr. Leslie oc casionally made remittances to her, although these were limited, in consequence of his cir cumstances being very embarrassed. The letters were peculiarly afieetionate and intimate. It was not till July, 1840, that Mr. Leslie was presented to tbe church and par ish of Borthwick, when the earnestly en treated him to take her home, as bit wife. Thit he professed himself unable to do in consequence of bis pecuniary circumstances, his income being quite inadequate, after pro viding in some measure for the claims upon him, for the proper maintenance of a wife. Ultimately, in May, 1856, the pressure of his debts, many of which wore not very credit ably incurred, and which amounted to be tween 7,000 and 8,000, led him to a reso lution to flee the country, and he committed suicide in Lancaster, it was understood, while on his way to America or Australia. The Lord Ordinary (Ardmillan) decided that no marriage had been proved, notwithstanding the acknowledgments in the correspondence. She reclaimed against this judgment, and the Court on Friday decided by a majority that the parties had been married according to the law of Scotland, the leading principle of which is, that consent makes marriage; no form or ceremony, civil or religious, 110 no tice before nor publication after, no cohabita tion, no writing, no witnesses even, being essential to its constitution. Claim. Horrible Affair In Vermont-A Man Commits Claim. Horrible Affair In Vermont-A Man Commits Incest, Attempts to Murder his Wife,and Cuts His Own Throat. and Cuts His Own Throat. A Mr. John Roberts, living in Strafford, Vermont, attempted to commit suicide a few days since, by cutting his throat with a razor. Roberts was living with a second wife, while one of his sons was living with a young girl whom he had recently married, in tbe same neighborhood, and tne father had had im proper intercourse with the son s wife, and had paid tbe ton two hundred dollars in con sequence. Roberts was fearful that his wife might sue for a divorce, and that he should lose still more of his money, and about ten days since told his wife that he thought he should cut hit throat und hers too. On Wednesday morning early he got up, and, taking a large drink, returned to bed. In a little time he drank again, and on returning to bed bis wife observed that he was trving to conceal something in his left band, which the toon taw was a razor. She urged him to give it up; Instead of which he began to lay bare his throat. Mrs. n. sprang from tne oed, ana rushing through an adjoining room into an entry, called to a young man in the chamber above. Mean time her husband had divided bis wind-pipe, and cut into the passage leading to the stom ach.' He then started, with the blood pour ing down his chest, in pursuit of his wife. Hearing him approach, his wife ran into a room still farther on, and concealed herself beneath the bed. The monster tore the flounce from the bedstead, but fortunately for Mrs. R., he either became fuint or staggered back to hit own room, and fell upon the bed. At last accounts he was still living, although there teems little chance that he can survive. Tub True Cause or tbb New York Sur veyor's Departure fob Europe. A corre spondent writes us that the real end of the sudden departure for Europe of the Hon. Emanuel B. Hart, Surveyor of the port, was not to look after frauds on the revenue, nor to receive a legacy left bim by an enamored Jewess, but to attend the fight between Heenan and Bayers. It is well known that Heenan and Hart are great friends, the latter having employed Heenan, for a long time, to do nothing in the Surveyor's office, at a sal ary of $2,500, and that Hart lost considerably by backing the Benicia Boy in his contest with Morrissey. He has also now betted heavily on the fight with Bayers, as have many of those Hebrews In the city who are of a sporting disposition. An Accomplished Rogue in Prison. Shep herd, who is in the Toombs, New York, awaiting bis third trial on a charge of arson, adds skill in picking pockets to his other ac complishments. The other day a gentleman desiring to spend a cheerful hour, procured a ticket at the entrance to the Toombs, and after satisfying his curiosity with a thorough inspection of the cells and their inmates, started to retire from the Halls of Justice. But on reachinir the door ho found to his sur prise that hit ticket was missing. Instead of being a visitor, ne was a prisoner. He recol lected that he had been near Shepherd while walking in the corridor, and the keeper's sus picions that he had gained possession of the ticket were verified by a search. Doubtless be hoped to effect an escape, in time, through its instrumentality. Cheap Classic Litkbaturb in England. A penny Sbakspeare is among the latest English literary enterprises.

Origin of the English National Debt. beginning of the English was in the reign of Charles the second, when 650,000, about $6,000,000, was borrowed of the bankers and other capitalists of London, on pledge of the taxes, but tho Government not keeping its promise of repayment from the taxes, many of those who advanced the money were ruined. The revolution of 1688 and the establishment of William and Mary on tbe throne, added about 2,000,000, or $10,000,000 more to the sum. In 1721, the wars with France aud Spain, were found to hare run ttp the debt to 54,000,000, or nearly $270,000,000. In 1781, the wars with France and Spain and the American Revolution had increased the debt to 240,000,000, or about $1,200,000,000. Ana in 1815, at the close of the long war against France, it reached the highest figure at which it has ever stood, namely, 860,000, 000, or $4,300,000,000. From this time up to the commencement of tho Crimean war, it was reduced about 100,000,000, or $500,000, 000, but the Crimean war added 45,000,000 mora, bringing it up to 805.000,000, or $4,020,000,ihjo. The interest on the debt has been much reduced. At the beginning of the last century this was eight per cent. Now it is reduced to three and a half per cent. Such has been the increase in wealth in England that it is computed the debt is not now so burdensome to the nation as it was a hundred years ago, when it was not one tenth part of its present magnitude. Within this period of forty-five years, the immense manufactures of England huve almost en tirely grown up. Foreign commerce is vastly f renter than then, and internal commerce as received a great impulse by the introduc tion of steam and the railroads. Condition of the Negroes In New York. The New York Herald publishes a lengthy account of the condition of the negro population of that city, (to be taken with due recollection of the Jlerald '1 unreliability, of course,) from which we condense the follow ing facts : The whole number of this class of persons is about 1 1,000. About one-third of them are paupers, receiving their subsistence from the public and private charities of the city, one third are engaged at labor by which they are enabled to make a bare living, and the re maining third live from hand to mouth, by their wits aud by thieving and pilfering in a small way. The whole amount of taxable property iu the hands of the colored popula tion iu the city is about $300,000, and is owned by about twenty persons. Their social con dition is of the lowest and most degraded type, being much below that of any class in the Union, whether bond or free. Their re ligious culture is sadly deficient, and hence the proportion of crime among them is very great. The number of arrests tor the last year was one in eleven of the entire colored population. But their crimes are generally of a petty description. They appear to be in capable of committing outrages which require great boldness or -great ingenuity, except in rare instances. Bituminous Paper Tubinu. Au experi ment was recently performed iu London for trying the strength, by hydraulic pressure, of a new description of tubing, composed of Diiuminout paper, i nit new contrivance tor subterranean tubes was invented in Paris. The municipal authorities of Paris tried these tubes for the conveyance of gas, and in recent experiments made in London, a piece of the tube was produced, wbicb, though stated to have been used under ground as a gas-pipe for twelve months, bad tbe appear ance of being a uew nine. The tubes, sub jected to a pressure of tbe hydraulic process, oore a strain of two hundred and fifty pounds to tne square lncn witnoui oursting wnicn is more than they would be required to bear iu uiuiuury use. irue vi uie iiioes, nair an inch thick, aud with a bore of two inches. was also tested by weight, and it only gave way to a pressure of five hundred and eighty pounds, the bearings being three feet apart. It was stated that tbe tubes might be sub mitted to a temperature of 160 degrees of ranrennen, wituouiany deterioration 01 tne material. The cost ot tbe tubing is said to be less than half that of the ordinary tubing, The Late Storm in Ohio. The storm of Monday visited Mecbauiusburg, Champaign Couuty, uuroofing some five or six dwelling houses, and the large flouring-mill of Mr. Staley. Two chanteys upon the.
