Nkw York, April 35.—Two New York Bcwspaia-rs publish long cable accounts of dnel alleged to have been fought between Edward Modoc Fox and Hallett Alsop Bor rowe. The encounter is said to have taken place among some sand dunes, on the Bel coast, a few miles from Ostend. A peculiar feature of this alleged dnel was the that the corn 1 « pondent of these favored newspapers were invited to be present. According to these veracious chroniclers Borrowe and Fox were attired in Pence Albert coats, closely buttoned. They also wore "top" hats. Both men are described being exceedingly brave and cool. As a proof of thia it is stated that after exchang their first shot Fox stood perfectly still Borrowe lighted a cigarette. Neither Man Was lilt. Neither of the men were hit at the first Are, but U» second ballet* were more ef fectivc, for Pox's is said to have whiatied past his antagonist « ear. Borrowe's ballet I wuw '' 1 throu B h Fox ' h bnt Jid not his body o. hishat. The men fired at the diatanoe of twelve paces. They had remained out of bed all night, buay ill writing letters. There ia no mention of any will*, an omission probably ut , to the fact that neither Borrowe nor . ..... . .. Fm had anything to hrqnaath Fox wrote » "deathbed" confession that had gone into the Borrowe-Drayton quarrel at the instigation of Colonel Tom that tu« corr» apondence would be a big new*i»per "scoop." No denial has as yet been re eeived from the Texan colonel, as be 1« Btm hnstlmg all over Eurojie in search of Fox, Borrowe awl Drayton. The "Liar" Mill Stand«. Thfl corr , !KVomiente arp vory ^,„0 in relating the conduct of the principal*, for we are told that the day before the duel there wiu: an accidental meeting, when "Borrowe'« fine was impaa«ive. bnt Fox looked upon hi« prospect! ve antagonist with ill concealed contempt." In a letter Bor rowe hud declared Fox to be a contemptible coward and a liar. After the ''»hooting'' of Fox's coat Borrowe took back the charge of cowardice, leuving the "liar" to stand. I'olIce After the Duell«!«. The Herald'« London special declares that the duel did take place, and say» that the police of Belgium and Hollund have been looking all day for Messrs. Fox, Borrowe und the other members of the dueling party. They have been advised that the dnel has taken place and are now desirous of making money for tlieir respective states in the shape of tines The minimum fee in Belgium for dueling is l.OOOf. and one month's imprisonment. There has been much excitement in the American colony in London over the affair. The fuct that no one was hurt seems to be rather a disappointment to some per sons, while the majority are glad that no casualty occurred. The principals feel themselves that the affair has ended in the best way possible. Both Fox and Borrowe said after the dnel was over that they wanted to hit each other, and at first they were sorry they did not do so, bnt later they changed their opinion*. Two minutes after Borrowe's bullet pierced Fox's coat he said to The Herald re w rter, "I feel like a fool," by whieh he t '*> at he « " «>rry the shot had not " er "" What*New York Thinks of It. Much interest was excited in New York by the reports of the dnel. A southern gentleman, who has been in several duels himself, was asked : "Does the fact that Borrowe stood up and permitted Fox to shoot twice at him relieve him from the charge of cowardice put on him by Coleman Drayton "No; Mr. Borrowe's position is not al tered in the minds of Mr. Drayton's friends. N#w. the idea of Borrowe and Fox meeting on a field of honor makes me tired. There was no field of honor about it. Let's look at the whole thing; "The correspondence between Borrowe and Drayton was made public by Fox. Fox declare» it was made public by authority Borrowe. Borrowe write« a letter and tell* Fox he is a liar and a coward. Fox Chat lenges him. They invite two reporters see tbe fight, so that it shall have sufficient notoriety. They fight. Fox ia shot through tbe coattails. Borrowe then takes back all that he said about Fox. Fox. wounded he is, takes lack nothing. Each declares his honor satisfied. Esch praises the other's courage and they retire. This ia fine, isn't itf I do not believe that either man meant to shoot the other. If either did, then it clear, considering their sixes, that each man was too frightened to shoot straight." "Is an exchange of shots without the spilling of blood »officient nndcr the code wi|>e out a deliberate imputation of lying and cowardice?" asked the reporter. "Well, in this rase, remember, the coat tail of one of the gentlemen wm injured. That ought to be considered. I think that, voder tile code, the gentlemen could agree that their honor was satisfied. But Fox, last accounts, reiterated his accusation that Borrowe lied. I should say that as long h» continued saying that, so long would Borrowe have to keep shooting at him."

I shall always be ready to give all needful help to my successor. In |iartiiig with my colleagues I beg them to regard me, not as a person worthy of houur, but as a sinful man, erring often, bnt always try ing to work his way upward and to help his fellow men." The letter was supplemented by a report from a special committee that a canvass of the brandies for a successor to Colonel Ol eott bad resulted in 53 votes for W. O. Judge, of New York. It was also recom mended that each member of the society should make ns liberal a contribution as pos sible toward a fund that should place Colo nel Oleott beyond the reach of want for the future. It was also stated that in a few weeks he would retire to a little house of three rooms near Ootamacund, to rest for the remainder there of hia days.
