The harness hangs above his head, Tbe whip behind the door I His leathern gloves and crooked bill To day the woodman thrown aside; The blacksmith's fiery furge is still. The wooden wheel of the old mill Sleeps in the mill-dam wide. The miller's bont is anchored where, Far out the lilies sleep. Ton see tier shadows narrowed there, ' The broad while flowers reflected clear 'Within the mill-pond deep. The harrow's in the garden shed. Hoe, rake and spade are put away; Unweeded stands the onion bed. The gard'ner from his work hath fled, Tis holy Sabbath day. Upon tbe wall tbe gray cat sleeps. By which theebnrnsand milk-pansliel A drowsy whatch the house dog keeps. And scarcely from his dull eye peeps, Upon the passer by- And sweetly over hill and dale The silvery sou ading church bells rug; Across the moor and down the dale. They coioe and go, and on the gale. Their Sabbath tidings fling. From where the while-washed Sunday school Peeps out between the poplars dim Which ever throw their shadows cool Far out upon the dusty pool Tou hear the Sabbath hymn. From farm and field, and grange grown grr.y , From woodland walks and winding was The old and young, grave and gay. Unto the old church come to pray. And sing God's holy praise. Miscellaneous. A SINGULAR DREAM. We take the following nccount of a sin gular d renin from the Western Christian Advocate: Mr. B. Lad been twice mnrried, but was left a secoud time a widower with six daughters and one son. After those be reavements, Mr. B. inferred thct the Lord did not desigo Lira to enjoy tbe blessings of a wife, and be resolved to sacrifice all personal conveniences and enjoyments of the conjugal relation and never attempt to belect another partner in life: This resolu tion he sacredly kept for nearly three rears, when the arguments and couusel of the minister of the circuit, in tbe State of Del aware prevailed on him to change bis mind. The consideration of bis numerous family of daughters requiring so much of a mother's care and instruction, was one of the strong reasons that had induced him to admit that his resolution might be found in error. The minister eccouraged by the good impression be bad made, mid the in fluence be bad gained over Mr. B , took the liberty to name a lady residing in a cer tain neighborhood of bis circuit, whom be thought would make an excellent wife and geod mother for bis children, and appoint ed tbe lime and place for Mr. B. to meet him and be introduced to her. Some oc currence took place which prevented Mr. B. from meeting the miuistei according to promise. , . The minister intent upon bis plan pro curred Mr. B.'s consent to meet bim a sec ond time, and the appointment was made; but an unexpected providence again pre vented Mr. B. from being there at the time. They then made a third arrangement, and Mr. B. determined, if life and health per mitted, be would certainly meet bis friend, and be made acquainted with the lady re commended. Before the time arrived, Mr. was admonished in a dream that the wo man too favorably spoken of by the min ister was not the one he ought to marry, and was conducted in a vision to the resi dence of a young lady who was a suitable helpmate, and that Providence desigued for him. The distance was sixty miles, and he bad only traveled twenty miles in that direction. Yet the map of the whole road, and the way be should go so distinctly marked in his dream, that he seemed per fectly familiar with all tbe road. He dreamed the distance,lhe name of the young woman and the name , of her stepfather, Col. Vickers, the appearance of the bouse, in which he lives, how it was paiuted; that it was .situated near a river, with a large warehouse near at band. He dreamed also, that there were five young ladies belonging to tbe father of the one se lected for bim so accurately described in bis dream, that he could easily distinguish her from the other four, . . , In the morning be awoke and tbongbl nothing of bis vision, except as an ordina ry and rather remarkable dream. The next night be bad precisely the same vis ion lepealed and the same things presented to bis mind in a still more vivid manner. Mr. B. began to think there might be some judication of Providence in his dream; and all that day be made it the subject of sincere and ardent prayer, that God would direct him in the way he should go in a matter so grave, and involving so much in terest to himself and bis luulherless chil dren. That night be bad the same vision repeated tbe third lime, and be determin ed then to follow tbe direction furnished him, and ally test the circumstances of tbe dream by a practical examination, and see if the results would be as he bad dreamed tbem. . He immediately sent a note to tbe preacher, informing bim tbat he had changed his mind, and must decline meet ing him at the appointed time. Air. a. started in the direction indicated by bis vision, and after passing the twenty miles be was acquainted with, his dream was bis only guide. He however, had no difficulty for the map of the road was so vividly im pressed open bis mind, that be was able to distinguish it from all others. The gentle men whose name was given bim in bis dream, be bad never seen or heard of. He knew as soon as be saw it. The house and everything about appeared precisely as they had been presented in bis vision. He alighted from bis horse, and entered tbe beautiful house. The persona appear ance of the young lady was so vididly im pressed upon his mind by the vision tbnee repeated that be readily recognized her in the company of four others, whom Le found ia tbe same family- He soon ascer- ed the name of the young woman, and fouud it to be Sarah T., according to his dream. This young lady had often said she never would marry a widower. Miss. T. said the very moment she saw Mr. B she felt a strange tremor pass over her whole system. - She had a vivid impression that be was a widower, and tbat be bad come to see ber. She afterwards confess ed that a sudden emotion of affection for bim arose in her heart as soon as she came into bis presence. Mr. B. obtained the t.Ieasnre of an in terview with her that evening, and was successful in securing her consent to visit ber again and address ber on the subject of marriage. He, however, did not tell ber his dream, until! she had consented to become bis wife. After a courtship of a few months, tbey were happily married, and liven together more than fifty years. Mr. B. died on the 25th of March, 1842, and M. lived till the 7th of April, 1446. For sixty years, perhaps, they were both distinguished and useful members of the M. E- Church. The Spindle City. LOWELL AND ITS INDUSTRY. The growth of Lowell, Mass., as a man ufacturing place, wholly within the last for ty years, is almost unexampled in history, and the result is a working model of skill, er.ergy, Jab3r and capita', combined to pro duce wonderful r salts. At tbe present time there aie twelve corporations with an aggregate capital of 815,000,000, owning fifiy-lwo factory buildings, containing over four hundred thousand spindles and twelve thousand looms, with other machinery in proportion : employing eighty -seven hun dred women and forty-two hundred men; manufacturing yearly more than one hun dred million yards of cotton cloth, twenty five million yards of calico, twenty mill ion yards of bleached and dyed goods, one and a half million yards of woolen cloths, and.over A million yards of enrpetings. Think of a strip of cotton cloth a yard wide and two hundred miles long, made daily! . Enough in a year to go twice round the globe, with ends five thousand miles long to lie with. The annual con sumption of material is immense, vis: for ty million pounds of wool ; five thousand tons of wrought and cast iron ; thirty thousand tons of hard coal ; twenty-seven thousand bushels of charcoal; eighty thou sand gallons of oil; sixteen hundred cords of wood; thirteen hundred barrels of four; a like amount of starch, with great quan tities of soap, teasles and dyestuns in ad dition. Private enterprise has also been busy ; and prominent in this respect stauds the vast chemical laboratory of Dr. J. C. Ayer St Co where enormous quantities of their invniuble preparations, Cherry Pec toral, Pills, Ague Cure and Sarsapnrilla, with a world-wide reputation for the re lief of suffering humanity, are yearly made for sale in all lands on which the sun slimes. This firm prints more than four millions of of Almanacs yearly, on an automatic, self feeding prees, printing both sides of a sheet at the same time; the greatest issue of any work in any language. Among other things of noto in Lowell, St. Anne's church contains a more complete chime of bell s (11) than any other in this country, with a single exception of lhat just erect ed at Cambridge, Mass. The Lowell Ma chine Shop is oue of the oldest in the country for the building of locomotives; and the pioneer of railroads in America is that between Lowell aud Boston, opened for passenger travel in 1835.' As one of great industrial centres of New England it cannot fail to be a place of great inter est to the traveler, and a personal inspec tion of its resources and capacity for pro ducing the various articles for which it is famed will well repay a visit. A Denial as is a Denial. COLUMBUS, Ga., Oct. 18. 1860. Eds. Times Gentlemen : I have no ticed an article in the Star of this city, alleging that one of tbe Senators in Con gress from this State bas proposed and urged that all persons who shall accept offices under Lincoln, if elected President, should be outlawed and killed, and much holy horror bas been expressed by that pa per and other kindred submission .sheets, at the enormity of the proposition. If the undersigned is tbe Senator alluded to, 1 take occasion to say that I am not the originator or the advocate of tbe policy al luded to, 1 take occasion to say that 1 must have been misunderstood if any oue basso represented me. The policy has been suggested by others, and have oc casionally in private conversation spoken of it as one of resistance to the rule of a Black Republican President, but I have generally disapproved it, as many persons in Columbus will doblless bear mo witness. Still, I do not hesitate to say, lhat in my opinion any Sonthern man who would at cept office from a Republican President, elected upon a Republican party, would be no better than a Black Republican, and ought to be eondemed and ostracised by universal public sentiment.

A late number of the French Psycl.e bas a story of a love affair which has deep ly moved the whole population of Marseilles but will be hardly credited by persons who do not believe in supernatural apparitions. However here is the story in as few words as possible. Charles R , born in a wealthy fanii ly of merchants, aud an orphan from bis cuiiuitood, bad been brought up at bis un cles with a cousin whose beauty, sweet ness and graces never failed to produce a lasting impression on all persons of ber ac quaintance. It is consequently not at all surprising that Charles R., who had grown up in her intimate society, should have fall en deeply in love with such a fascinating cousin. . JSor was his love unrequited, for, when tbe proper time came, she decided with the conseut of her family that their marriage should take place as soon as be was t.venty years of age. Just about that time, his uncle received from Calcutta tbe news of tbe failure of a house with which he was carrying on an extensive business, seut thn young Charles to that distant port to effect a liquidation. The marriage was necessarily postponed, and the young lover left Marseilles, promising to write as soon as God and the ocean would allow, and to return as soom as his business was settled. - Four months passed on, and no news came from the young traveler. His rela tions, and more particularly bis :ousin, be gan to feel uneasy, and were already ac cusing bim of neglect, when one unhappy day they read in the papers of the fatal loss of the steamer on board of which they knew Charles bad gone. The young Marseillaise was almosi mad with grief; and after a long and dangerous sickness, tbe poor girl disheartened, seeing before her nothing but a complete blank, resolved to spend the remainder of her life in a con vent to mourn, far from the world, for tbe only man she ever loved. It was in vain ber parents tried to dis suade her from that resolution. All their entreaties, their miseries, their tears, could not induce ber to change ber mind, and she soon entered a convent of Marseilles as a 'postulent.' : 1 .; ix months after tbat fatal day, just as the time for her to take vows was approach ing, Iter family was pleasantly startled by a letter from their daughter, informing them that she bad changed her mind, and wished to go back to them. : to the world, to pleasures, to happiness. For the last three nights, she said, she had seen in her dreams her beloved Charles, entreating ber with tears n his eyes, not to fulfill her terri ble resolution, not to complete a sacrifice which would be the death of them both. For Charles was vet alive and would soon be back to keep his sacred promise, and end all her griefs. The nuns of the convent bad good buinoredly laughed at ber, and tried to persuadu her to stay among them, in lhat quiet retreat, where sbe might, un disturbed, lament all ber life the dear com panion of ber youth. For he was dead, said they, and it was foolish to believe in those supernatural apparitions. But she was unshaken in her faith, and to nil their entreaties she would answer tbat her be trothed would soon be back, and of course sbe must be at home to receive him. . Although the parents of tbe voung 'pos tulant' did not believe, any more than the nuns, lhat sucb a strange dream would be realized, tbey were so much gladdened by the letter of their daughter tbat tbey de cided not say one word to undeceive ber. She might go on from day to day, hoping all the time for an arrival which would never take place, and by little and by lit tle tbey thought the deep wound of ber heart might be healed. Accordingly on that very day they, went to the convent, and in less than one hour their only child was crossing again tbe threshold of the old family mansion. Her first thought was for ber little room, where she had gathered so many dear tokens and souvenirs from her cousin.' Sbe hastened up stairs, and went so last lhat her de lighted parents could hardly follow ber. But when she was on the landing, whom did she see standing in the door of tbat room, so long shut up! Charles, her affi anced, who looked at her, smiling with happiness, and opened bis arms to clasp ber to bis bosom. It was no longer, a dream! Charles held her in his arms, kissing ber, and ming ling bis tears with ber own. But when be 'opened his arms again, to receive the ca resses of ber parents, she sunk and drop ped heavily on the floor. . ' She was dead ! dead with surprise and happiness ! dead without uttering one cry, without heaving one sigh ! A Polite Invitation Declined. A contributor to be Spirit of the Times, thus describes a scene at tbe Anthony House, Arkansas: ; Late one bitter cold night, in December, some eight or nine years ago, L. came into the barroom, as usual, to take bis part in whatever was going on. For some reasons the crowd had dispersed sooner than was customary, and but two or three of the lownfolks were there, together with a stranger, who had arrived a balf-bour or longer before, and who, tired, wet and mud dy, from a long Arkansas stage ride, bis legs extended, and shoes on, was consoling himself with two chairs and a nap, oppo site the center of tbe blazing log fire. Any one wbo bas traveled until 10 o clock, iu a rough winter night, over an Arkansas road, can appreciate the comfort of tbe fruition before tbat fireplace. Tbe drowsy example of tbe stranger had its effect on the others, and L., who took his seat in the corner, for the lack of conversation was reduced to the poker for amusement. He poked the lire vigorously for a while, until it got red hot, and be coming disgusted, was nb jut to drop it and retire, when he observed the great toe of the stranger's feet protruding through a hole in one of bis socks. ' Here was relief to L. He placed the glowing poker within a foot of the uvelnnclioly sleeper's toe, and U'guu slowlc to iesseu luo distance belwseu tbem ; one by one, tbe others as tbey caught tbe joke began to open their eyes, and be' ing wakened, mouth expanded into grins and grins into suppressed giggles and one incontent follow's into a broad laugh Closer and closer the red bot poker nearcd toward the unfortunate toe. The beat caused the sleeper to move his bauds. L. was just about to apply tbe poker, when a sound of click! click! 7 arrested his inten tion. He looked at the stranger the lat ter with one eye open, had been watching bis proceedings, and silently brought a pis tol to bear upon L. In a voice just as aud ible he muttered, in a tone of great deter mination. "Just burn it! Burn it! Just burn it! and I'll pe d d if I dou't stir you up with ten tbousad hot pocker3 in two sec onds !, L. laid down the poker inslanter and re marked : - ' "Stranger, let's take a drink ! in fact gentlemen all of you." L. afterwards said they were the cheap est drinks he ever bought. Driven Out. Mr. Seymour Straight, of the well known firm of Straight, Deining 6c Co., Commis sion Merchants, Cincinnati, was receutly driven out of Montgomejy, Ala. He had visited tbat section of the South with ref erence to a proposed rail road connecting Cincinnati with some of tbe marts of the planting States. We happen to have some personal acquaintance with Mr. Straight, and believe bim to be an upright, intelli gent aud enterprising merchant. At Montgomery, he was called upon by a committee, who questioned him as to his political preferences, and in answer to a question put, lie repiteu tuai u at Dome on election day be should vote for Mr. Lin coln, Upon lhat he was warned by tbe committee to leave town, ibe ailnir was chronicled by the Montgomery Advocate of the 28tn Oct. as follows: Ah Abolitionist. A big-whiskered, book-nosed Abolitionist, by the name of Straight, in reference to whom we copied au article from a Rome (Georgia) paper the other day, was arrested by some of our citizens yesterday evening for expressing sentiments not considered sound. His trunk was examined, but no insurrectiona ry documents being found therein, be was ordered to strike ajrai'yAsheet foramore congenial clime, as early as possible. ; In a card to the Cincinnati Commercial, Mr. S. says : "As for my political principles, I obtru ded them upon no oneid gentlemen sev eral times apologised to me, after a brief discussion, for having forced me into it. If all with whom I came in contact had been gentlemen, those paper missiles would nev er have crossed my way. . . - People who have dwell peacefully in our quiet city the last three months, can form no correct idea of tbe fiendish dispositions of some of these men, towards all oppo nents in general, and the supporters of Lin coln and Hamlin in particular. An overwhelming Republican triumph is the much needed, and' only medicine tbat can cure their insanity, and I earnest ly hope this will be administered to the entire extent of their necessities next Tuesday." Have the Courage. Have the cour age to keep out of debt as long as possi ble absolutely if you can. - Debt is a species of slavery. The creditor owns the debtor to tbe extent of bis claim, for what does the word "claim" mean if Dot this! In taking our advice, you will be but obey ing the scriptural exhortation to "owe no man anything." Have the courage to wear your old coat or gown, nntil yon are able to buy another upon the good, old-fashioned "pay as you go" principle ay, and do not be afraid to have it known why yon prefer this course. Your neighbors will think none the worse of you for your honest frankness. On tbe contrary, they will think all the belter of you, if they are people whose gocd or bad opinion is worth considering. Have the courage to live on two meals a day ay, even on one, if two of the three you customarily took in better times, would now have to be procured with. false pre tences. And what but moral, if not legal, false pretences," is purchasing with prom ises to pay which you know in your in most heart there is no prospect of your meeting. Have the courage to own that you are poor! No one whose opinion is valuable will think any the less of yon for your frankness, but will ratber esteem yoa tbe more highly. Finally, bave the courage to be truthful, honest and just just to your own sense of right, as well as to the sense of .others. And so you wil maintain your self-respect, as well as the respect of your neighbors, and these will constitute no small capital to start afresh with, when "better times" shall have re-appeared, as ere long they will to all who have the courage to be just in their dealings and prudent in their ex-pendituies.

Since the election, Senator Douglas bas been recuperating from his fall personal and political at Montgomery, Alabama, but on Thursday he ran over to New Orleans from Mobile, and was betrayed into speeches as usual. Great crowds turned out to see him and at the depot Pierre Soule welcomed bim with the assurancs that bisTriends sa luted bim vanquished with the same en thusiasm they would have saluted him vic torious. Mr. Douglas briefly responded, when he was escorted by a procession and the crowd to the St. Charles Hotel. Here the street was packed with people, and the cry for Douglas was loud and long. When be appeared on the balcony, the greeting was very vociferous. We clip from tbe True Delta. JUDGE DOUGLAS' SPEECH. Fellow-citizens of New Orleans'. Two years ago, when 1 bad just concluded a struggle in defence of the Constitution, the Union and the equal rights of the Stales, in my own State, I came here on private business, and you gave me such a reception as bad never before been extend ed to me. (Cheers.) Then I came before you as a victor in a great contest, and you received me like a conqueror. (Cheers.) And now I appear before you, having just goue through another - and still greater struggle in defence of the same principles and the same rights, defeated in the con test, and yet you extend to me a welcome which could not have been excelled, even if I had come among you as the Presideut elect. (Loud cries of "you will be in 1864." A banuer, bearing a fine painting of Doug las, with "1864" inscribed upon it, was here waved aloft amid the wildest cheer ing and enthusiasm.) These are the right kind of friends. (Cheers.) Tbey adhere to a man in the right, whether defeated or victorious. ("Hurrah for Douglas," and cheers.) I bave pleasure in believing tbat this demonstration is not intended as a mere personal compliment .to myself. It is the more gratifying to me because it is the evidenco of your devotion to those great principles of self-government and con stitutional liberty to which my life is de voted, ("That's it," and cheers.) I be Iievo tbat if we are faithful to the Consti tution, there is no grievance which cannot be remedied under that instrument and within the union. (Cheers.) If we are true to ourselves, there is no grievance for which disunion would be a remedy. (Cheers.) All we have to do is to main tain inviolate every provision of the Con stitution, perform faithfully every duty it requires, and lulhll every obligation it im poses. Cheers. So long as we live un der a constitution which is the sbpreme law of the land, it must be admiuistered so as to secure equal protection to the people of all the Stales. Cheers. These princi ples of equality are not connned in their operation to the Slates alone, but extend to the Territories and wherever else the American flag waves over American soil. Cheers. Let us now bury the excitement and angry passions which have manifested themselves during the contest. Let us lay aside all partisan feeling and act as become patriots and lovers of our country. Cheers.) Let us unite to put down sec tionalism and abolitionism and every oth er element of political and national dis cord. Cheers. Let no grievances, no embittered feelings impair the force of our efforts. Let us put ourselves to work to rescue the governmeutof the country from the hands of those we think unworthy to administer it. Cheers. If Abraham jjiucoiu is rresiaent, wnni nnrra can ue ao I 'None.' There is a majority against bim in the Senate and a majority in the House of Representatives. He is powerless for mischief all he can do is to fill tbe offices, and the majority in the Senate will reject those he nominates if tbey are not good men. Cheers.! He will be an object of commisseralion and pity rather than of fear. Cheers. Then why should we break up the best goverment tbat tne snn in its circuit around tbe earth ever shone upon, merely because we bave been defeat ed in a Presidential election t Let us rath er rally with renewed engergy and daunt less courage in the performance of our du ties, and rescue the country from the hands in which it should never bave been placed. Shocking Burning Fluid Accident. dent. the sad The Syracuse Jonrnal gives particulars of a burning fluid accident which occured at Kellogg's Factory, on the 3d. A Miss Cattou was spending Ibe evening with Mrs. Mitchell, when Ibe fluid lamp exploded, setting fire to the dress of Mrs. Mitchell. Miss Catton, in endeavoring to exlin guish the flames, which were destroying ber friend, was shockingly burned on her lace, neck and arms; but with great pres ence of mind she ran into the bed room, as soon as ber clothing caught fire, and enveloping herself in bed clothes, sraotn- ered the flames. We bope and trust ber life will be spared. Mrs. Mitchell survived until nearly 10 o'clock in great agony, mitigated only by the use of chloroform ; which was all tbat could be administered for fcor benefit, the wbole surface, nearly, beiDg burned to a crisp. The maternal instinct was Deauutuliy U lustrated in the case of Mrs. Mitchell, whose little bov. six years old, was asleep up stairs when the accident occurred. As soon as sbe found her clothing in flames that could not be extinguished, she imme diately ran out of doors, fearing tbat the Id take fira and burn up her boy. and when her husband came into the room upon leaching his house, her first excaima tion, upon bearing bis agouizing groans, was: Oh Jim. I am dying for disobeying you, but I have saved our boy!" And almost the last words the poor sufferer uttered, were : "Take good care of Clmrloy."

Many of the prevalent reports and con jectures concerning the action of the Gov ernment, are nulrue and most of tbem ex aggerated. The remark attributed to Representative Keitt, lhat the President is pledged to Se cession, has been received here with aston ishment, and his friends do not believe tbat he is correctly reported. It is well known that tbe President has never made such a pledge in any public paper, and his most intimate friends bave never beard anything from his lips which would lead to the be lief that he entertains any sentiment which is not warmly in favor of preserving the Constitution in all its integrity. The Post Master at Orangeburg, Mr. Keitt's residence, has forwarded bis resig nation as Post Master, to take effect on tbe 1st of January unless, be says, bis most abused and best beloved State of South Carolina shall sooner secede. His resig nation bas been accepted, and he bas been requested to delegate a suitable person as his sucessor, who will give proper bonds for the discbarge of ail the duties required by the laws and regulations of the P. O. Depatment. In the event of no such per son being found to fill the office, it must be discontinued. Lieut. Col. Gardner bas, in tbe ordinary routine of business, been relived of the command of Fort Moultrie, and will be succeeded by Major Anderson, who is next to him in rank in the 1st Regiment of Ar tillery. The newspapers report that Fort Moultrie is occupied by a Military Co. of Charleston is the only informblion receiv ed of it in this city. The War Department has neither given an order nor received any information on the subject. Tbe 5,000 stand of arms recently mentioned as hav ing gone South, were purchased in Wash ington by Virginia for the use of that Stale. Tbey were of au iuferior quality. CHARLESTON, S. C., Nov. 14. Booksellers of this and Savannah return Harper's Weekly, Monthly and other pub lications, and a movement is contemplated to return all Northern books, unless the publishers are known to be sound. Some foreign counsuls are here waiting for secession, to open negotiation. They are said to have full authority from their Governments. Tbe Mayor to day notified agents of Northern Steamship Lines that he would not permit the lauding of steerage pass engers unless the companies guaranteed their roaintainence if they become vagrants. . Tbe secession movement seems to be increasing, and it is now said that South Carolina will not be in tbe States after New Years. A Funny Duel. The Pittsburg Express gives the follow ing amusing account of a duel that oc curred near that city, during the last Christ mas holidays: Tbe Christmas holydays afford the best opportunities for the colored population to go their length in enjoyments of their pe culiar kinds. By no meaas insignificant among these, is the enjoyment of courting and gallanting their dusky sweethearts about town. Out of one of these affairs of love, the other day, grew an affair of honor, which is thus related from one who learned the story from one of the "principals." They took their stand on the West side of tie creek below the Old Dominion Mills. One of the seconds suddenly noticed that tbe sun "from de clowds" set his principal a winking and rolling his eyes, and he im mediately put in an objection. "1 say, nigger, 1 put my weto on aat po- sishen. It is agin de rules ob all de codes ob honor I eber seed. De refraction ob de sun makes my principal roll him eyes too much. "Wy, wy, look a heah, say didnl we chuck up a cent for de choice ob de ground f . and didn't I get it P "Sartin, I knows yon did ; but den fair play a Juba, aud I'se no notion ob seein my fren composed on and loose all de wan tage." "Well, niger, I'se no notion too; I'se just as good a right to bab no notion as you is. At this juncture, a friendly cloud min gled in with the curtin of vapor already gathered around the sun, and settled the matter at once. The two principals again took their positions and all the prelimina ries being settled, each one took bis pistol ready cocked from bis second. Both man ifested considerable spunk, although a blue ish paleness overspread their black cheeks. Tbe second who was to give Ihe fatal order now took his stand, and in a bully voice began : 9 "Gentlemen, your lime am come. Both nodded and commenced shuddering. "Is you ready f Fiah ! one, two, free !" Bang, pop, went both pistols at once, one ball raising the dirt in the middle of the road, while the other took a "slantindicu lar" direction and scraped the wool off the top of tbe second who had given the word. It was now thought time to settle the mat ter, and the challenged party approached his antagonist and said : "Nigger, is yoa satisfied" "I is," was the reply- "So is I," said the first, "and de next time von catch discbile zibilin himself in dis way, you'll bave to fotch him.w "Dem's my sentiments edzactly," retort ed the other; "when your onmortal instru ment of des exploded, I thought I was a goner, uosn, am t i giaa aer nut an blood spilt I Thev shook hands and came back to the city, tbe "wounded" second being the only one to tne pty wuo uiuu iw ""jtj He lost no blood but couldn't bear the rdea of losing bis top-knot, and about four years' growth from the fright occajionod by tbe accident.
