The desperate Duel between
Jackson and Dickinson. The famous dual between Jackson and Dickinson isgenerall known, bat Parton's life of the former gives an excellent acconnt of the afiair, with tome circumstance! that sVirlitutina netxmA won the choice of position, and Jackson's the office of ginne the word. The astute Overton considered this emmr of the word a matter of great importance, ana ne wouiu gn , lot fell to him. The eight paces were measured oS, and the men placed; both were perfectly collected. All the polite ness of sock occasions was strictly and ele gantly pefonned. Jackson was dressed in a loose frock coat buttoned carelessly over his chest, and concealing in aome degree the extreme alenderness of his figure. T).-v;nenn vu the younerar and handsomer man of the two. cut Jackson's tall, erect figure and the intensify of demeanor, it is said, gare him 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 I" said Overton. MI am ready," said Dickinson, "I am ready," said Jackson. The words were no sooner pronounced, than Overton, with a sudden shout, cried, using his old country prounciation, 'Fire V Dickinson raised his pistol quickly and fired. Overton, who was looking with anxiety and dread at Jackson, saw a puff ot dust fly from the breast of bis coat, and saw him raise his left arm, and place it tightly across bis Chest "Ha is surely hit," thought Overton, "and in a bad place, too, but be does not fad. Lrect and grim as fate he stood, his teeth klinched, rais ing his pistol. Overton glanced at Dick inson. Amazed at the unwonted failure of his aim, and appaled at the awful figure ana tace before Dim, Dickinson bad uncon ciously recoiled a pace or two. "Great Ood !" he faltered, have I missed himr "Back to the mark, sir!" thundered Overton, with his had upon his pistol. Dickinson recovered bis composure, stepped forward to the peg, and stood with his eyes averted from his antagonist. All this was but the work of a moment though it requires many words to tell it f Jackson took deliberate aim, and pulled tne trigger, lbe pistol neither snapped nor went off. He looked at the trigger and discovered that it had stopped at half- cock. He drew it back to its place and took aim a second time. He fired, Dickin son's face blacked ; he reeled ; his friends rushed towards, caught him in their arms and gently seated mm on tne grass, lean' ing against a bush. His trowsers redden ed. They stripped off his clothes. The blood was gushing from his side in a tor rent And, alas 1 here is the ball, not near the wound, above the opposite hip, just underline skin, lbe ball bad passed through the body below the ribs. Such a wound could not be but fatal. Overton went forward and learned the condition of the wonnded man. Rejoin ing Lis principal, he said: "He won't want anything more of you, General," and con ducted him from the ground. They had gone an hundred yards, Overton walking on one side of Jackson, the surgeon on the other, and neither speaking a word, when the surgeon observed that one of Jackson's shoes was hued with blood. bOh! I believe," replied Jackson, "that he has pricked me a little. Let's look at it. But say nothing about it there," point ing to tbe nouse. He opend bis coat. Dickinson s aim had been perfect He had sent the ball precisely where he supposed Jackson's heart was beating. But the thinness of his body and the looseness of his coat combining to deceive Dickinson, the ball had only broken a rib or two, and raked the breast bone. It was a somewhat painful, bad looking wound, but neither severe nor dangerous, and he was able to ride to tbe tavern without much inconvenience. Upon approaching the house, he went np to one of tbe negro women who was churning and asked her if the butter had come. She said it was just coining. He asked for some buttermilk. While she was getting it for him, she observed him furtively open his coat and look within it She saw his shirt was soaked with blood, and she stood gazing in blank horror, at the sight dipper in hand. He caught her eye, and hastily buttoned np his coat again. dipped out a quart measure full of batter- milk, and gave it to him. He drank it off at a draught then went in took off his coat and had his wound carefully examined and dressed. That done, he dispatched, one of his retinue to Dr. Catlet, to in quire respecting the condition of Dickin son, and to say that the surgeon attending himself would be glad to contribute his aid towards Mr. Dickinson's relief. Polite reply was returned that Mr. Dickinson's case was past surgery. In tbe course of the day, Gen. Jackson sent a bottle of win6 to Dr. Catlet for the use his patient But there was one gratification which Jackson could not even in such circum stances, grant him. A very old friend of General Jackson's writes to me thus "Al though the General had been wouuded, he did not desire it to be known until he had left the neighborhood, and therefore had concealed it first from his friends. His reasons for doing this, as he at once stated to me, was, that as Dickinson considered himself the best shot in the world, and was certain of killing him the first fire, he did not want mm to have tbe gratification even of knowing that he had touched him." . X"A case came before the Supreme Court in Hartford, Conn., the other day, in which the plaintiff was a dentist from a neighboring town, and the defendant ' a young lady who had purchased a set of up per teeth from him. The bill of $60 she refused to pav, as with the teeth which had been supplied her she could neither talk nor bit. The gallant juryman knowing that the lady must do both, returned a ver- aict m ner tavor. 9In Cheatham county, Tenn, James Morgan retired to bed to read, and after he had fallen asleep the family were aroused by his screams, when they hurried to his room just as he threw the door open and fell prostrate to the floor. He was so bad ly burned that he died in a day or two af terward. He had some $3,000 in his room, the greater part of it being gold, some of which has been recovered in a damaged condition, but the paper money was entirely lost STUtah is without Courts now, ex cept such as the Mormons choose to hold.

Jackson and Dickinson. Col. Bowie in Mississippi--Terrible Duel Between 40 Men. An old Mississippian furnishes lowing to the Woodville (Mississippi) Re- publican. : Xbe la toons auet, w wmv. v. more gentlemen were engaged, in 1828, is still remembered in Natchez. Colonel Jim Bowie, the famous fighter and inven tor of the knife which bears his name. osed to spend a great deal of his time in Natchez. He was challenged by a gen tleman of Alexandria, Louisiana, whose friends to tbe number of twenty, or more accompanied him to Natchez, to see fair play, knowing that Bowie was a des perate man, and had -his own friends about bim. All parties went upon the field. The combatants took their places in the center, separata from their friends in the rear, far enough not to endanger them with their balls. Heboid lbe battle array thus: Twenty armed Louisianians fifty yards be- niua ineir cnampion ana nis seconas ana surgeons, and opposite them and as far be hind Bowie and his seconds and -surgeons, twenty armed Mississippians. - Behold the Lights of Natchez thronged with spectators, and a steamer in the riv er rounded to its deck black with passen gers, watching with deep interest the scene, lbe plan of nght was to ex change shots twice with pistols, and to close with knives. Bowie being armed with his own terrible weapon. At ' tbe first fire both parties escaped. At the second tbe Liouisiaman was too quick and took advantage of Bowie who waited the word. At this Bowie,e second cried "foul play r and shot the Louisiaman dead. The second of the latter instantly killed the slayer of his principal. Bowie drove his knife into this man. The sur geons now crossed blades, while with loud battle cries came on the two parties of friends, tbe ligbt of battle in their eyes. In a moment tbe whole number were en gaged in a fearless conflict Dirks, pistols and knives were used with fatal effect un til one party drove the . other from the field. I do not know how many were kil led and wounded in all, bat it was a dread ful slaughter. Bowie fought like a lion, but fell covered with wounds- For months he lingered at the Mansion House before he fully recovered. A New Paris Sensation. The sensation of the day at Paris is caused by the preaching of a man named Dupanloup. The correspondent of the .London Star says : I have just returned from the exhibi tion, and caff safely declare that no theater, race course, or fair, ever presented such an extraordinary spectacle as that afforded by the crowd in the church. As early as nine o'clock every place was secured. At twelve the streets were impassable, as it was hoped that a glimpse might be caught of the hero as he alighted at the door. At one, precisely, the Arch bishop made his appearance, and stood before a scrambling, shrieking, stifling crowd of enthusiastic fine gentlemen and hysterical fine ladies. The excitement was so great that the au thority of the beadles, in spite of stare and balbered, cocked hat and embroidered uniform, was completely set at naught and the fainting ladies deliberately seating themselves on the shoulders of the gen tlemen, who defended them most valient Iy with uplifted chairs against the officials, who imagined such position indecent and improper. The gend.armes were called to the rescue more than once, but like the heroes of the City Guard, they were school ed to bearing all things from a city crowd, and knowing the habits of the more en thusiastic portion of the fair devotees of Paris, and their extravagant demonstra tions of admiration for an ecclesiastical favorite, showed themselves most reasona ble and temperate in their remonstrances, and so good humor was not disturbed, al though the toilets of the ladies suffered so considerably that the pavement of the church was found to be strewn with all kinds of contrivances for addiog to tbe chances of cap tivating tbe other sex. A Clergyman Sentenced. The Rev. Jacob S. Harden, who for some time has been on trial at Belvidere, N. ln for the murder of his wife by slow poison, has been been convicted, and sen tenced to death. The testimony reveal ed facts that are summoned up thus : He committed murder on his young and confinding wife, who loved him to destruc tion, as the evidence in the case shows, by the more diabolical means, known to the murderer; he stood by her deathbed, and saw ber life wasting away by inches without affording her any relief; when her piteous cries went up to him for "water, only a glass of water, I am burning up he fed her day by day with that which caused her mortal agony ; he refused to send for her parents in her dying hour, to secure their parting blessing ; he had com mitted the great crime of perjury by swear ing before tbe Coroners Jury that his wife, on her dying bed, informed him that she had poisoned herself. Add to all this, his attempt to fasten npon tbe memory of his victim the crime of suicide. The Court room for the last three davs has been filled to overflowing. Hundreds went sway, without being able to gain ad mittance. The town to-day presented an extraordinary spectacle. At an early hour oi me uay wagons and vehicles of all kinds came flowing in from every direction, and by noon there was a perfect jam. I am informed that over six hundred wagons were stored away at the different public houses. Horses were tied around in the public streets, and everything gave evi dence of some great public demonstration. The people seemed wild with excitement The court-room presents a pitiable specta cle. Not a single seat in it has escaped de struction. The ladies of the town and county dur ing the whole course of the trial have been in attendance in large numbers. The space allotted to them is limited to a gal lery of moderate dimensions, and such has been their anxiety to see and hear that hia- ny of them remained in their seats from 8 in the morning until the close of the day. Eight o clock F, M. The Jury have just retured into court, after an absence of two hours. At the ring of tbe Uourt House bell people rushed from every quar ter, and soon the house was densely pack ed with spectators. The prisoner was brought in. amid breathless silence. His aged father, who sat by his side during the whole of the trial, was not present to hear that awful word, "Guilty, fall from the hps of the Foreman of the Jury, which consigns his unfortunate son of the gal lows. When the word came to the ears of tie prisoner, his head fell upon the ta ble and be groaned in great agony. His counsel who sat by his side, were fixed to their seats, and aome time elapsed before they recovered their self-possession. THE BEST HORSE IN OHIO. BIG BOSTON.

SECHRIST'S Manufactured and sold wholesale and retail by HELFEE & SECHRIST, DRUGGISTS, Akron, O. j "VOTHTN'G adds more to the beauty of a human being i 1 than a fine head of hair. A bald head or gray hairs 'give a person not only an old appearance, but if they are young, make the contrast between their appearance and their vivacity unpleasant, and even ridiculous. An article, thereiore wholly innocuous, which, by invigora ting the corticle integuments in which the hair grows, will keep it healthy, and vigorous and thus preserve the softness, and freshness of youth, ia more desirable. READ WHAT THE PUBLIC SAT. Messrs. Heifer & Sechrist: You ask my opinion of your Hair Re storative, and I give it to you with pleasure. My hair for same time, had been growing thin, and I had employed various Hair Restoratives Wood's, Mrs. Allen's and others, ail having, as I think the same basin, lac surplus, or sugar of lead, or both. From tbe use of these, my bair became harsh, so much so as to be an noying to me and still continued to fall off. My hair had also become very gray about my temples. These reinedie schanged the gray into a variety of colors a dull red being the prevailing one. With this experiment I made up my mind that hair restoratives were humbugs; when a lady friend of mine from Akron, urged me try a bottle of your Restorative, and I did so, and before the bottle was used up, my hair became as firm set in my head as it ever was, and to my surprise (for my friend had said nothing about its chang ing the color of the hair) my hair became glossy, soft and black, the natural color. Now with my hair restorative experiment, I do not hes itate to say that your preparation is invaluable, and when the public shall become acquainted with it my opinion is, that it will drive all other Hair restoratives out of the market. Truly, Yours, DAN'L R. TILDEX. Cleveland, Aug. 25, 1S59. Messrs. Heifer & Sechrist: Gentlemen, In the fall of 1&8 I had a severe attack of Chill Fever, and as I got better, found my hair coming out or rather falling oat At the sug gestion of a friend I procured a bottle of Mr. Sechrist a "Restorative. 9 It at once arrested the decay of my hair, and prevented the baldness I anticipated and dreaded. But this was not all. I found my hair, which was dry, and turning grey, restored to the softness of youth and to its natural color. I have little faith in any specific for making hair grow npon a bald head, but your restor ative did all in my ease which it promised and more; it restored not only the vigorous growth, bat color also. I have since had occasion to recommend it to others and have heard from them, in every case the highest re commendation of its virtues. Very Truly yours, A. H. LE WIS. Akron, Sept. 22, 1S5 Messrs. Heifer k Sechrist: My Tousorial Professor has been in the habit, for some time, at the time of semi-weekly opera tions on my chin, to give my head a dressing with your Hair Restorative. I have been surprised by its effects. It has restored my hair to its natural brown color, and given it a soft ness that it possessed twenty-five years ago. I have never used a hair dye, and can not speak of comparative merits; but from what I have seen of the effects of your Hair Restorative in my own case, I can most confidently say it will restore hair that is gray, or faded, to ltB natural color, and give it a softness that equals that of youth. L. V. B1ERCE. Akron, Sept 5th, 1859. Messrs. Heifer k Sechrist: Gents, The bottle of Hair Restor ative I had of you has more than realized my anticipa tions. Indeed I may say with truth that 1 had no sort of faith in it, till after the second application I discover ed that my gray locks were assuming their natural color; and now, having used hut three-quarters of the bottle, it will require snarp optics to nnu a grey nair on my bead. I have full faith in its efficacy as & hair restor ative, for I carry the proof with me. if you thiuk it will subserve your interests, you are at iinercy to use this as yon desire ttespectiuity, sc., J.
