A MARRIAGE OR A DUEL.
There is a deal of talk in the Parisian
world about a marriage which has just tar
ten place It is*the denouement of rather
rather a romantic adventure.
Sir Edward S , a baronet, ; twenty
eightyears of age, of an aggreeable ap
pearance, fine family, with an income of
25,000 litres, was terribly afflicted with
ennui, ahd with that English malady, the
spleen. Nothing surprising in that By
ron would have had the spleen and would
have blown out his brains, had he remain
ed in England. Happily for-himheogiuld 1
live in Italy, die in Greece, and he was
saved by the Mediterranean, thai smiling
and poetic sea, which saw the birth of
Venice, and the dangerous enchantments
of wlpoh Othello compares .the peifiduous
graces of his wife. Tnat sea was needed
n>r the sumptuous vessel of Lara.
Sir Edward, then, was dying of ennui.
The blondes of Epgland hap no attraction
for him. All the marriageable young la
dies and their mothers addressed their
most provoking smiles to him but without
effect. Sir Edward. decided to fly from
Eughmd. He went ctd board the first
steamer he saw, without even inquiring
the destination. The steamer «i»iled and
some hours afterwards entered the port of
:Qssend. He waited along the wharf where
eveiy day assembled bathers from ail coun
tries. There he met the Viscountess de
, a young widow and of charming
and perfect Parisian beauty. He saw her,
and immediately loved her. Too essen
tially English to dare to speak to her, he
contented himself with following her.—
He stopped at the same hotelrwith her.
He followed her everywhere j and every
where she perceived shad
ow. This dumb homage fatigued her.—
AJil ter efforteto escape It were- in vain.
At last she determined tofly from her im-
She warned ho,one of
her resolution,rose at five in the morning,
had her trunks put. on a coach, and star
ted for the railroad which would take her
to Brussels. She found Sir Edward in
the same coach.
At Brussels, instead. of going to Paris
she had herself driven all about the oily,
and then took the cars for Cologne.-
There she again found Sir Edward, who
still maintained the • most respectful si
lence —he had not been introduced.
At Cologne the Viscountess stopped
with a lady friend, who possessed a charm
ing residence. She passed two days) de
parted ini the middle of the. night, and
took ike train for 'Strasbnrg. Shd tbia
iime-did Jiot.see Sir Edward; doubtless ho
had lost $ll traces of her, - At Sttwlmrg
> • ■ \
she had a brother, the young Count de P
, sub-lieutenant in the luzzars,
whose regiment was garrisoned ; here.'—
He could deliver her from the indiscret
AtSjiasburg, however, she learned that
her brother had obtained leave of absence
and hacrqnitted the city. So she went to
the Hotefd’ Angletere, and in order not
to risk the arrival of Sir Edward she en
gaged all the rooms until the next day, up
to the very moment of her departure.—
She had hardly entered her room after
having made this agreement with the land
lord when Sir Edward arrived, and asked
for a room. \
‘ Impossible ! I have not 'OnevvacSml
* How! not one even V \
‘ Not one.' \ x
‘ But this vestibule—it has hot been
‘ No, sir.’
‘Very well, I’ll take it. I’ll pay you
ten guineas a day. This is my first day.’
‘ Well,’.said the landlord incapable of
resisting this argument, ‘if the lady has
leased all my rooms she has not leased all
my entries. It is a bargain.” -
Left alone, Sir Edward walked up and
down before the room of tjhe Viscountess.
Suddenly the door opened and she appear
ed. She was thunderstruck on preceving
him, but, carried away by impatience ask
ed, ‘ Once |br all, sir, will you tell me why
you are so obstinately bent upon following
The Englishman very respectfully thank
ed the Viscountess for having designed to
commence a conversation with him who
never would have dared to begin, and by
his pcserved and impressive replies so
much embarassed the lady, that she final
ly told him that she was married, and to
rid herself of his presence presented to
him a follow traveler, stopping at the ho
tel, as her husband, Sir Edward when
she left him was in despair* but-then con
soled himself by thinking, < I will kill her
And so he sought a quarrel" with'the
pretended husband, who, being something
of a coward gave up his marital rights at
the sight of two pistols politely offered
‘ I thought that I was dealing with a
true husband/ said Sir Edward.
‘Do not rejoice so much at it/ remark
ed an unknown person, who intruded upon
the conversation at that moment.
‘ And why S’ asked Sir Edward.
* Because you are now dealing with a
true brother/ was the answer.
The unknown man was in fact the broth
er of our heroine. Detained at' the mo
ment of his departure, hei had returned to
dine at the hotel when the landlord told
him the story of the Viscountess pursued
by the Englishman.
s 1 Sir/ asked the huzzar, ‘is this story
true ?’ .
The Englishman confessed that it was.
‘ Can you offer an excuse for such con
‘ Yes, sir, my excuse is the purity of my
intentions. I am called Sir Edward S
■ —. I have wealth and family. I have
the honor to ask of you your sister’s hand.’
.‘My dear sir, I can qn iy fransnsilrytiui*'
proposition to her. But I make you judge
of one point, if my sister don’t accept your
proposal, .does not your conduct to her en
title me to seek satisfaction.’
‘Certainly, sir; In five minutes I will
return to know your sister’s answer, and
if she refuses my, offer, I place myself at
your disposal/ ;
‘ Very well, sirf you are a gentleman/
said the officer, extending his hand to Sir
Edward, ‘ I will speak to my sister, and
desire her to accept your offer/
In fact the officer proposed to his sister
to'marry Sir Edward, the Viscountess hav
ing only the had impression of the yqung
baronet caused by . Jus persecution, avow
ed that ho was young, good looking, a de
sirable match —butshe refused him.
The officer informed Sir Edward of the
■ ‘Very well, sir/; replied the English
man, ‘lam at your orders. You have the
choice of arms/
‘ Pistols 1 in half an hour I will come
to you with seconds/
But |be Viscountess, who doubted the
issue pf ahusiness in which her brother
had; interested himself, heard ’those words
ahd eanwi to them very decided to prevent
v Onprecemng her, Sir Edward said that
he was aboutto depart on a long journey,
and that he should no longer have the
pleasure of seeing her. He begged her to
pardon the ' imjmtuosity of his conduct,
and trusted that she. .would not preserve a
disagreeable remembrance of him.
Thei Viscountess remeasured him in that
respect llren she sjpeke to him nf the

yourself, madame. In a duel between two
men who love you, there is only danger for

The Indy did not understand this, but
she did not wish the dud to take place.—
While she feared for her brother, she did
not care to cause the death of Sir Edward,

Sir Edward declared that he would rather

baseness on his part. So that finally the

Terrific Adventure in tlie Mam
At the supposed end of what has always
been considered the longest avenue of the
Mammoth Gave, nine miles from its en
trance, there is a pit, dark and deep and
terrible, known as the Maelstrom. Tens
of thousands have gazed into it with awe,
whilst Bengal lights were thrown down it
to make its depth visible, but none ever
had the daring to explore it. The celebra
ted guide Stephen, who was deemed in
sensible to fear, was offered six hundred
dollars by the proprietors of the cave if he
would decend to the bottom of it; but he
shrank from the peril. A few years ago a
Tennesse professor, a learned and bold
man, resolved to do what no one before
him had dared to do, and, making his ar
rangement with great care and precaution,
he had himself lowered down by a strong
rope a hundred, feet, but at that point his
courage failed him, and he called aloud to
be drawn out. No human power could
ever have induced him to repeat the ap
A couple of weeks ago, however, a young
gentleman of Louisville, whose nerves never
trembled at mortal peril, being at the Mam
moth Gave with-professor Wright, of our
city, and others, determined, no .matter,
•what-thedanger atid'difficulties might be,
to explore the depths of the Maelstrom.—
Mr. Proctor, the enterprising proprietor
of the .Cave, sent to Nashville and procur
ed a long rope of great strength expressly
for the purpose' The rope and some ne
cessary timbers were borne by the guides
and others to the point of proposed ex
ploration. The arrangements being soon
completed, the rope, with a heavy frag
ment' of rock affixed to it, was let down
and swung to and fro to dislodge any
loose rocks that would be likely to fall at
the touch. Several were thus dislodged,
and the long continued reverberations,
rising up like distant thunder from below,
proclaimed the depth of the horrid, chasm.
Then the young hero of the occasion, with
several hats drawn over his head to pro
tect it as far as possible, against any mas
ses falling from above, and with a light in
his hand and the rope fastened around his
body took his place over the awful pit and
directed the half dozen men, who held the
end of the rope, tq let him down into Cim
We have heard from his own lips an
account of; the descent. Occasionally ipas;
ses of earth and rock‘were’whizzing past,
But none struck him. Thirty or forty feet
from the top, he saw a ledge, from which,
as he judged from appearances, two or
three avenues led off in different directions.
About a hundred feet from the top, a'cat
aract from the side of the pit, went rush
ing down the abyss, and as he descended
by the side of the falling water and in the
midst of the spray, he felt some apprehen
sion that his light would be extinguished;
but his care prevented this. He was
landed at the bottom of the pit, a hundred
and ninety feet from the top. He found
it almost perfectly circular, about 18 feet
in diameter, with a small opening ot one
point, leading to a fine chamber of no great
extent. He found on the floor beautiful
specimens of black silk silex, of immense
size, vastly‘larger than were ever discov
ered in any other part of the Mammoth
Cave, and also a multitude of exquisite
formations, as pure and white as virgin
snow. Making himself heard, with great
effort, by his fiends, he at length asked
them to pull him partly up, intending to
stop on the way and explore a Cave that
he had observed opening about forjy feet
above the bottom -of tub' pit. 'Beaching
the mouth of the cave, he swung himself,
with much exertion Into it, and, holding
the end of the tope in'his hand, he incau
tiously let it go, and it swung out appar
ently beyond his reach.
The situation was a fearful one, and his
friends above could do nothing for him.—
Soon, however, he made a hook of the end
of hif l&np, and, by extending himself as
far oyer the verge as possible without fal
ling, he succeeded in securing the rope.
Fastening it to a foofcj he followed the av
enue one hundred arid fifty or two hun
dred yards to a point where he found it
blocked by an impassable avalanche of rbek
and earth. Returning to the mouth of
this avenue, he beheld an almost exactly
similar month of another on the opposite
side of the pit, but, not being able to swing
himself into it, he fastened the rope around
his body, snspened himself again oyer the
abyss, and shouted to his friends to raise
him to the top. - i
The pull was exceedingly sOTere one)
N . ,
and the rope, being ill adjusted around, his
body, gave him the most excruciating
pain. But soon his pain was forgotten in
a new and dreadful peril. When he was
90 feet from the mouth of the pit and 100
from the bottom, swaying and swinging in
the mid-air, he heard rapid and excited
words of horror and alarm above, and soon
learned that the rope by which he was up
held had taken fire from the friction of the
timber over which it passed. Several
.moments of awful suspense to those above,
and still more awful to him below, ensued.
To them and him a fatal and instant cat
astrophe seemed inevitable. But thefire
was extinguished* with a bottle of water
belonging to himself, and the party above,
though almost exhausted by their labors, :
succeeded in drawing him to the top. He i
was as calm and self-possessed as upon;
his entrance into the pit, but all of his
companions, overcome by fatigue, sank
down upon the ground, and his friend,
•Professor Wright, from over exertion and
excitement fainted, and remained for a
I time insensible.
The young adventurer left his name
carved in the depths of the Maestrom —
the name of the first and only person that
ever gazed upon its mysteries —Louisville
tST An old Dutch Justice of the Peace
did up a marriage in this way:
' He first said to the man; “Yell, you
wants to be marrit, do you? Yell, you
ovesh this woman so goot as any one you
lave ever seen ?”
“Yes," answered the man.
Then to the woman—
“ Yell do you love dis man so better as
any man you ever seen ?"
She hesitated a little, and he repeat
“ Yell, do you love him so veil as to be
lis wife ?'*
“Yes yes," she answered.
“Yell, that is all any reasonable man
could expect. So you are married;. 1 pro
nounce you man and wife."
The man asked the Justice what was to
“Nothing at all, nothing at all, you arc
welcome, if it will do you any goot!"
A Child’s Laughter.—ls there any
thing like the ringing laugh of an innocent,
happy child ? , Pan any other music so
echo through the heart’s inner-chambers?
It is : sympathefic, too, beyond other mel
odies. When the father is absorbed over
his book, which seems to concentrate every
faculty, he hears the little boy laughing
in his sports, and'laughs also, he knows!
not wherefor. The bright'being continu
ally gathering -casts.-around
us gems of thoughts and pearls of affec
tion, till our path seems paved with pre
cious stones from Heaven’s treasury. -No
day of stonn is dark where he is—no win
try evening long. A young child is a full
fountain of delight to the house and heart.
A Young Man in a Bad Way.—A
sentimental swain of our acquaintance
grows romantically; ecstatic when the name
“ woman,” is mentioned and says:
There is a <( something” than. which
there is nothing more bewitching; no
thing piore sweet on the face of God’s
green sarth; a “something” that steals
upon aq£ entrances the ear like the sound
of flutes dancing over water on a moon
light ni£bt; that something is the answer
ing voice of the girl you know it’s “ $ll
right.” (Poor fellow, we know what’s the
matter with him—he’s a goner.)
A Singular Surgical Operation.
—A man named Berry, residing at Pe
tersburg Ya., was suffering intense pain,
last weebpfrom a felon on his hand. On
the 7th inst., he seated himself by the track
of the Petersburg railroad, and when the
train apprpached, coolly laid" his hand on
the rail, the cars passing oyer and sever
ing it from the wrist. The conse
quence is, that he will have t 6 undergo a
second amputation, at the hand of aeur
gcon. ' |
Most Strange. —A man was once de
lating a story of being on a locomotive
that , struck a cow standing on the tmjk,
and threw her several rods into a field,
where she lib squarely upon her feet, with
her head toward the tmn, and strangeto
