FOR THE NORTH CAROLINA STANDARD
Which of those many Mansions, Love 7
By G. Z. Adams.
Which of those many Mansions, love,
Shall be our changeless home al last 1
Beside what waters shall we rove,
When life's mysterious dream is past ?
Whither the uncag'd dovelet flee,
To isles in summer beauty drest?
Where 'mid yon ambient sparkling sea,
Its folded pinions sweetly rest?
Full many a soft savannah lies,
Amid yon curtain'd realms I ween,
Where bland Eolian zephyrs' sighs,
Forever fan their fadeless green ;
Full many an Eden's bright repose,
Where seraphs'sacred numbers ring,
Then whither love, when life shall close,
Shall soar our mated spirit's wing ?
North Carolina. 1S10.
Know ye the Printer's hours of peace ?
Know ye an hour more fraught with joy
Than ever felt the maid of Greece,
When kissed by Venus' am'rous boy ?
'Tis not when news of dreadful note,
Hi3 columns ail with minion fill
'Tis not when brother printers quote
The effusions of his stump worn quill.
'Tis not when in Miss Fancy's glass.
Long advertisements meet his eye,
And seem to whisper as they pass,
We'll grace your columns by and by.
Nor is it when with numerous name:,
His lengthened roll of vellum swells,
As if 'twere touch'd by conjurer's wand,
Or grew by fairy magic spells.
No, reader, no the Printer's hour,
His hour of real, sweet repose,
Is not when by some magic power,
His list of patrons daily grows ;
But oh! 'tis when stern winter drear,
Comes robed in snow, and rain, and vapor,
He hears in whispers soft and clear,
" We've come to pay you for your paper."

would back a lew steps, ana men be positively
obliged lo run him ihrough the heart in his own
defence. I n nni'.'.lt-d to M'Shane whether he
thought it likely that an Englishman would be
satisfied with bring disarmed, after having had
a Frenchman's rheum vented in his face. I gave
it also as my ultimatum that unless the duel was
fought with pistols I should withdraw my man.
"This is more serious than I expected. I will
never stated by and see a man assassinated. But
I must say a word lo my principal."
I If tinned away from me, and I was left alone
with the old General and his friend. This was
what I had dreaded. I had rather, at that mo
ment, have had a dozen pistols pointed at my
bre;ist than meet that old man's eye. It was not
to be avoided, however. I positively shuddered
j like a guilty schoolboy, as he came towards me.
j I plucked up a little courage, however, and felt
J inclined to have rtconrseto a high tone and
! rage, but my courage all oozed away when my

i vehemence and anger, I d ire say I could have

; impudence. But when I looked upon him, I
saw not a revengeful hut a h?arl-brokeii man.

separated by force, but no one now attempted
to hinder us. The pistols were already loaded,
and we needed no assistance to take our stations.

sacre assassinate," & strode at once up to the bar
rier. There I stood, determined to have the
first shot. I had not bug to wait, for the French
man, who had lost all his coolness, did the same.
My finger was almost feeling the trigger, I had
covered him. as I thought, to a certainty, when
the pistol fell from my hand, and I - felt a dead
stunning blow upon the shoulder. He had fired.
Strangeas it may seem I suppose I was at the
moment mad 1 did-not think about the cause
of the pistol failing. Owing. I suppose, to my
not having, in my haste, set the hair trigger, the
pistol had not gone off. - I tried lo stretch forth
my hand to pick it up but fell as I attempted it.
My eye, heart, soul, were still; however, fixed
upon my opponent; I seized the weapon with
my left hand, and as I lay upon the ground,
levelled it and discharged it. The ball entered
his brain. I saw him fall, and swooned.
But, it being discovered in the Convention, by
the above vote, that Gen. Harrison was ihe stron
gest Candidate, a resolution was introduced to
the following effect: . - .
Resolved. That Gen. Harrison receive the.
unanimous nomination of this Convention.
And because Southern Delegates agreed to
this Resolution, the Federal papers have had
the temerity and iujustice to charge Mr. Sau'n
ders with a falsehood, knowing at the same
time, as they must have done, that it was with
out foundation. But quibbling is the master

playing, and we are not much surprised at this

THE END OF THE ROUE.
The coachee cracked his whip, and as we
rumbled and jolted along over the rough pave
ment, and through the narrow streets r.f Paris,
both Downey and myself preserved for a long
time a moody silence. The tragical death of
Anna had thrown a weight upon me, with
which the constitutional buoyancy of my spirits
strove in vain. D twney, for same less apparent
reason, appeared equally grave. He had that
dogged, determined air upon him, which I have
noticed that Englishmen always wear upon oc
casions of this sort; differing in this respect so
essentially from the French, who never appear
to allow themselves a single moment for reflec
tion after they have accepted a challenge.
We had roue on in this moody silence for, a
long lime, and the lumbering fiacre had already
traversed the long drive in the Rois de Boulogne,
which 13 so crowded with English equipages
and English horses in the middle of the da-,
when Downey let down the window, and there
by lt in a draft of morning air.
" "This must be near the spot," he said, thrust
ing his head out of the window; "yes, there's
the cafe they spoke of. Arretrz, arretez." he
called out to the coachman, and the fiicre stop
ped. "Pay him his fare, Frank."
I gave the fellow two five franc pieces, and
told him to wait till we returned.
"This must be the path," said Downey.
"Vifvit said it led off to the right, about two
hundred yards this side of the cafe."
We struck into it, and the sharp cold wind
seemed to whistle through every button-hole of
my peacoat as we walked through the little
dwarf trees, of which this so called "wood" is
composed. We walked for ten minutes. At
last we arrived at an open space, and Downey
standing still, commenced the process of light
ing a cheroot ;. venting at the same lime a series
of most potent curses upon Frenchmen, the
French language, and above all, French direc
tions for finding places, "D n the blackguard,"
he muttered between his teeth, after half a dozen
whiffs.. "I must have missed the path."
Finding Downey wa3 uot inclined lo be very
eommunicativPi I had lit a segar also, and iat
upon the stump of a tree.
We sat there for about a quarter of an hour,
Downey holding his watch in his hand, and
keeping a sharp look-out in all directions.
"Here they come," he cried at last, and two men
emerged from the bushes at the distance of about
a hundred yards.
They had hardly come half a dozen paces to
wards us before they were followed by two oth
ers, one of whom I at once recognized as Buter
bun. The other I also knew. lie was a young
Irishman whom I had often met at the General's
"Frank," said Downey, as they approached,
"the nff.iir between me and this Frenchman
comes offfirst. You must act as my friend in
this, and I'll do the same with you afterwards."
"Lome, come, Jack," said 1, "you've nothing
at all to do with this business. It belongs to me,
and I don t intend to let it slip out of my hands.
This Vifvit is mine "
"Hell and furies, man," exclaimed Jack, turn
ing upon me as though he would strangle me,
"do you think 1 came here to be mide a fool of
by a mealy-faced peace of mortality like you?
What have you got to do with this fellow ?
Did he ever spit in your face ?"
"Nonsense, Jack that's-all a hum."
"Such a hum, that by the immortal powers, if
I. had not a near prospect or washing the place
where he spat with his heart's blood, I'd rush
upon the filthy beast this moment, and tear him
piecemeal." Downey looked quite grand and
heroic in the intensity of his rage.
The parties came up. The Frenchman's se
cond turned out to be a tall man, well known in
Paris; an Englishman, or perhaps I should
rather say an Irishman, by extraction, but a
Frenchman by education. He even speaks En
glish with a foreign accent. I knew him. A
quarrelsome dog as ever breathed, but an excel
lent fellow with friends, whose quarrels he usu
ally insisted upon taking upon himself; and as
he was an excellent shot and a fatal swordsman,
it was much safer to be in his company as an
acquaintance than as a stranger.
1 kept my eye upon this man, as I walked up
to him and introduced myself as Downey's
friend. M'Shane, for that is his name, seemed
to think it a good joke. His friend, he said,
this disgraceful position
have vour revenge but
j von, don i look at me or speak to me.
" The old man raised me up, locked at me for a
I moment, and burst into tears. "Boy," he said,
"vou are safe from me; 1 did not come hereto
revenge myself, but her."
" You mistake me sir," I cried. But he had
turned awav lrom me, and I was hardly con-
i scions of the contest which took place. Buter-
: bun and his friend insisted, I believe, upon the
first encounter wiih the Frenchman, but Vifvit,
after a short time, nut a stop to all further enn-

MARK THE DIFFERENCE.
We have no notion of standing quietly by,
and seeinf the al lodged political sins of Mr.
Van Buren used as a ladder by which Gen.
Harrison is to climb into the Presidency. Air.
Van Buren is charged with entertaining equiv
ocal sentiments in regard to the movements of
the Abolitionists, although his political friends
point to his repeated declarations, his pledges,
and his acts of hostili'yto the doctrines of those
fanatics, to disprove the charge. Yet the Hir

" Do you understand that?" I asked my friend.
"To be sure I do make haste don't keep
us here all this morning."
I marked the ground and took care that Dow
ney should have a large mass of trees behind
him, so that his antagonist should have no con
spicuous object to help him in his shot. I mark
ed the extremities: of the twelve paces by lines
drawn in the earth. The men were then placed,
and were told to turn round, and retire each nine
" What's the use of going any further off,"
muttered Downey " we aint going to fight with
mortars. I shan't turn my back upon any b
Frenchman." and Jack accordingly took short
steps backwards. The Frenchman took nine
good long strides.
The pistols were then put into their hands.
" Are you ready ?" said M'Shane. "Advance I"
this was a word which both parties under
stood. No sooner was the word given than Downey
marched at once up to the line, and levelled his
pistol. The Frenchman did otherwise. He
advanced also, but it was by a quick zigzag mo
tion, stepping from side to side, and never ad
vancing more than six inches each jump. By
this means he distracted his adversary's aim.
Downey stood still at the barrier, his eye upon
the sight of his barrel, and his finger upon the
trigger, but he appeired to be unable to gel
the certain aim that he wanted. I watched him
with an intensity, an agony of excitement his
arra appeared motionless us an iron bar. The
Frenchman was never still for a moment; he
was still not half his distance, although he had
been jumping about for nearly a minute. At
length I saw that Jack was growing impatient,
and as I took my eye for a moment from him,
to look at his adversary, I heard the report of
his pistol. The Frenchman staggered, and 1
leapt up into the air." "Thank God he's hit
hi.n." I looked to see him fall.
Downey heard what I said, for I stood withinl
three yards of him. " No b t him, I've missed
him," he said throwing the pistol with violence
on the ground.
" Gardez vous, Monsieur," said the scoundrel,
waving me away as he walked up to the barrier
on nis sioe, and coolly examined the cap upon
his pistol. I made no answer, for I had not
even breath enough to curse him. I fixed my
eye upon Downey. He did not flinch or even
blanch he appeared only boiling with rage.
The merciless villain must have been at least
ten seconds deliberating upon his aim. At last
the report came Downey staggered two paces
back, and fell. I caught him in my arms.
" He's done it. I'm booked for the knackers,
Frank. It's all over with Jack Downey. D d
his luck; hut don't let him get off, old fellow."
Jack said all this with his old air.
" By Heaven he shall not, Jack. You shall
yet live to see it."
"No it's all up. I've got it here. Better

blood from the mouth, andDowney lay a lifeless

FROM THE LINCOLNTON REPUBLICAN.
In the Hon. It. JVI. Saunders', " Letter of Ac
ceptance" to the Convention, which nominated
him as the Democratic Candidate for Governor
ol this State, it is si id that "the Delegates from
no Southern State in the Harrisburj? Conven
tion had the temerity to vote for Gen. Harrison."
This expression has been seized upon by the
Federal papers as a prentence for charging Mr.
Saunders with a falsehood. Ever ready at
finesse, and never willing to do justice to an op
ponent, trie federal party are more than usual
ly busy in endeavoring to find means to lessen

periment, and now stand before the public as high
in reputation, and as extensively employed in all
parts of the United States, the Canadas, Texas,
Mexico, and the West Indies, as any medicine that
has ever been prepared for the relief of sulferir
man. They have been introduced wherever it was
found possible lo carry them, and there are but fen
towns that do not contain some remarkable eviden
ces of their good effects. The certificates that havt
been presented to the proprietor exceed twenty
thousand ! upwards of five hundred of which are
from regular practicing Physicians, who are the
most competent judges of their merits.
Often have the cures performed by this medicine
furnished subjects for editorial comment, in vari
ous newspapers and journals ; and it may with
truth be asserted that no medicine of the kind has
aver received testimonials of higher value than are
attached to this.
They are in general use as a family medicine, and
there are thousands of families who declare they
are never satisfied unless they have a supply al
ways at hand.
They have no rival in curing and preventing 7?r
lious Fevers, Fever and Ague, Dyspepsia, Liver
Complaints, Sick Head-ache, Jaundice, Asthma,
Dropsy, Rheumatism, Enlargement of the Spleen,
Piles, Cholic, Female Obstructions, Heart-burn,

and Bowels, Incipient Diarrhoea, Flatulence, Hab

Sallow Complexion, and in all cases of Torpor of
the Bowels, where a cathartic or an aperient is
needed. They are exceedingly mild m their ope
ration, producing neither nausea, griping, nor de
