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
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

Tbb Rboknt Bakk Sobbbbt at Columbus,
Ga. The amount taken from the Marine
Bank at Columbus, Ga., on the night of the
8th inst., was $45,542, about half of the sum
being in notes of that' Institution, and the
remainder in notes on other Georgia and
South Carolina banks. The thief omitted to
take a bundle of the Marine Bills of the value
of $71,000, as well as several bags of silver
which were left in the vault. The robber or

the doors were found open when the agent

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

Timet ia not as yet a pay ing concern like

when it gets a few more years on its head

Exprett, are both becoming rich. They
both married money South, one near Rich

under their management, the Exprett has
been made quite profitable, and has been car

Brooks is usually set down at about $80,000,

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

successful. Ten vessels were on the coast

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.

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

Political and Religious Troubles in Rome. Remarkable Thirty-years' Love--Affair in
Court and Establishes Her Connubial
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.

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.

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

An Accomplished Rogue in Prison. Shep

awaiting bis third trial on a charge of arson,
adds skill in picking pockets to his other ac

desiring to spend a cheerful hour, procured a

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

being a visitor, ne was a prisoner. He recol

walking in the corridor, and the keeper's sus

ticket were verified by a search. Doubtless
be hoped to effect an escape, in time, through

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
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
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
Bituminous Paper Tubinu. Au experi

Diiuminout paper, i nit new contrivance tor

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

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,
