Mr. Horace Grcely.
Tho intrigues of this notorious indivi'J
unl to defeat tho nomination of Mr. Scw
nrdat Chicago, seemed to have surprised
a portion of tho Republican party, who
hnl not previously been fully acquainted
with tho loading traits in his character.
Wo believe that thoso who know him
well, need not lo told thnt ho scruples at
no means to accomplish an ond ; that ho
r e. i 1 . , I
is an uiisiiio menu, ana an uurorgiving
relen ties enemy.
It seems that Mr. Howard did not go in
to a fit of hysterics some yeavs ngo, when
Greeley received "a reword of merit" in
i-iih r iv. in ino snaiie o a sound inrasn-
ing for his venemous personality. Mr.
Seward was of tho opinion that if an edi
tor dipped his pen in gall, ho ought to
havo back-bono enough to "fnco tho music'-
-so ho allowed tho affair to pass
without sympathizing with this victim of
his own ungovernable passions. This
was Mr. Seward's first offenco. Tho next
personal grievaiico on tho part of Mr.
lloraco Greeley, was tho decision of Mr.
Seward against him, as umpire, or referee,
in tho libel case of Graham vs. Greeley, in
which Mr, Greeley was very justly com
pelled to mako a most humble apology
for tho wrong ho had done. This was
grievance number two. Tho third nnd
last but by no means tho least, was the
fact that Mr. Seward did not appoint
Greeley to an office when ho was Governor
of Now York, nor use his influence in his
favor afterwards ; but on the contrary,
preferred a rival editor, Mr. Raymond,
upon whom to bestow marks of his eonfi
denco and respect. This was tho cap of
tho climax. From that day to tkif,
Greeley has been laboring day nnd night
to undermine Mr. Soward, and to destroy
his political prospects, lie has succeeded
and by such means as no honorable man
can fail to reprobate and condemn.
Wo look upon Mr. Greeley as intrinsic
ally a bad man. Tho bitter disappoint
ment in tho groat pet scheme of his life,
tho Fouricrito millenium, seoms to havo
turned every generous emotion of his
soul into malignity and gall. It has had
similar influence upon others atached to
t ho Tribune olllee, as is demonstrated in
every edition of that unscrupulous sheet.

under the false impression that itisnsem-i-religious
and reformatory paper ; tho so

half tho usual subscription price By
this means in conjunction with the C'AnV
I'taii AmbassaJur, he has succeeded in abol
itionizing a large majority of tho clergy
men of that persuasion in the State of
New York, who tako wholo sermons from
the columns of his paper. The two jour
nals mentioned havo succeedod in des-
i troying the cause ot Temperance, by
j their advocacy of the odious Maine Laiv,
and injuring, beyond all human Icalcula
' tion, tho cause of religion, by their fanuti

Duelling Ground
Hero, is a beautiful littlo grabs plot ur
rounded by trees forms, made alter tho

to bo tho first of threo fashionable
dors on this duelling ground
...... . ... r p n
In 1S1D, A. T. Mason, a, United Slates
Senator lrom Virginia, fought with Ids sis
tor's husband, John McCai ty, hero. Mc
Carty was averse to fighting and thought
thero was no necessity for it ; but Mason
would fight. McCarty named muskets,
loadod with grapo shot, and so near to
gether that they would hit bunds if they
fell on their faces. This was changed by
tho seconds to loading with bullets, and
taking twelve feot as the distance. Ma
son was killed instantly, nnd McCarty,
who had his collar bono broken, still livts
with Mason's sister in Georgetown. J I in
hair turned wbito soon alter tho fight
as to cause much comment. Ho has since
been solicatod to act as second iu a duel,
but refused, in accordance with a pledge
ho made to his wife soon after killing her
In 2ti Commodore liecatur was killed
in a duel hero by Commodore- Barron.
At the first Are both fell forward, with
their heads within teu feet of each mp
posed himsolf himself mortally wounded,
each fully and freely forgave tho other,
still lying on the ground.
Decatur expired immeuiatuly, but Bar
ron cventunlly recovered.
Iu It21, two strangers named Loga and
Sega, oppcarod hero, fought, nnd Sega was
instantly killed. Tho neighbors only
learned this much of their names from
the marks on their gloves left on tho
ground. Loga was not hurt.
In 1820, Henry Clay fought (his second
duel) with John Uandolph just ncrots tho
l'otomnc, as ltnuJoIph preferred to die.
if at nil, on Virginia soil, lie received
Clay's shot, and then fired into tho nir.
This was in accordance with a declaration
made to Mr. I'enton, who spoko to Uan
dolph of a call, tho evening before, on
Mrs. Clay, nnd alluded to tho quiet sleep
of her child nnd the reposo of the mother.
Itandolph quickly replied :
"I shnll do nothing to disturb tho sloop
of tho child or the reposo of tho moth
er." General Jessup, whoso funcrul I atten
dod last week, was Clay's second.
Whon Kandolph tired he remark
ed: "I do not shoot at you, Mr. Clay," and
extending his hand, advanced toward
Clay, whorushedtomcethiin. Randolph
showed Clay whero his ball struck his
coat, and facetiously ; said "Mr. Clay, you
owe me a coat."
Clay replied:
"Thank God the debt is no greater !"
They were friends ever after.
In 13'2, Martin wns killed by Carr.
Their lirst names are not remembered.

"Vcrj well, tnon," said Shcrborn, "I
will kill you." And ho did.
In I80S, W. J.Graves, of Kentucky, as
suming tho quarrel of Jas. Watson Webb
with Jonathan Cilley, of Maine, selected
this place for CHley's murder; but the
pnrties learning that Webb, with two
friends, Jackson and Merroll, wero armed

A Picture of dueon Victoria and the
Royal Family.
1'ov. II. Hay lie, who is writing a series
of letters from England to tho ion's Her
ald, draws tho following picture of (Juocii
Victoria and tho royal fumily, which dif
fers materially from tho roso-colored por
traits that nre generally presented of bet
Miijestv. The picture was taken at the
Ascot Kaccs. It is well tho artist delayed
drawing it until aft?r ho a oll'of British
soil, lie says:
"Having been disappointed by a slow
train in reaching the place in Reason to
seo thotjueon and her husband and chil.
dron enter, I determined to get ns near
her Miijety'as possible, and succeeded in
getting into astnall enclosure just in fiont
of her stand, which enclosure, I have rea
son to think from a notice, was designed
only for "tho members of the Jockm y
Club." It was a very good plnce, howev
er, nnd for an hour or two 1 had tho most
favorable opportunity of looking nt and
quizzing thotjuccn, I'rince Albert, l'rinco
of V ales, rrincosses Alice and Helen and
Louise, together with her Koynl Highness.
fho Duchess of Cambridge, tho Count of
Flanders, Prince Louis of Hess ; in nil,
cloven carriage loads of rovalty und no
bility. l'rinco Albert is a good, wide awake,
sonsiblc looking man, familiar and easy,
nnd lit for n husband to a queen, which
he is, nnd only is. l'rinco of Wales is a
bout 18, of light complexion and rather
spare : looks like a fair, sensible sonior in
college, nnd will graduate at Oxford some
time in lune. Tho Princese resemble
vory Ktrongly the Prince of Wales, nnd
nro not especially noticeablo for beauty ; 1
indeed, I should not havo looked at them 1
a singlo niinulo wero they not (laughters
of the throne. As to tho other person x
ges, I saw nothing that would attract ut
tontion. Thero weio a thousand on the
fiold better looking, nnd to nil appearan
ces equally sensible. 1 suppose; it does
not require much senso to patronize horso
racing, does it ? Well, what of tho (iiocn ?
I am not in England, and so I may speak.
Understand, I was within from twenty to
sixty feet of her more than an hour, look
ing with my owu natural eyes, and with
tho same eyes assisted by powerful race
glasses, which 1 borrowed. Let mo say
then as I think.
Before I expreis my thinkings, howev
or, let mo remind you that very recent ly
tho Queen refused to sit for a likuncss to
an American artist, because sho said her
lime is fully employed. That is not tho
reason, as you will guess. Queon Victo
ria is doubtless the mother of several chil
dren, and is said to be n excellent wifo,
mother ana woman, which is likewise
doubtless ; but she is not handsome, as
someof her portraits represents her; sho
is not good looking even, according to my
taste. That kissablo little mouth you
havo seen in hor portraits was borrowed,
for it is not in her face. Her mouth is
rather drawn at tho corners, and niched
in tho middle. Her complexion is thnt 1
havo named for her children, but her
skin looks blotched nnd unhealthy. 1
especially watched her manners in her
conversation and her movements, nmong
the family nnd visiting Roynlity, nnd I
must lay sho was entirely wanting in what
is termed grace, and was certainly very
fnr from appearing queenly nccordiug to
tho conventional meaning of that word.
When she bowed in response to the hear
ty cheers of her loyal subjects, there was
a look of the tlisdninful attached to a stiff
nnd cheerless motion of tho heath was
for a moment within ten feet of her, and
noticod the same expression.
Speaking with an Englishman in Taris
nlout her, tho other day, he remarked
U, she does vory well for a Queen to fill
tho throne ; sho makos a good mother and
wifo, nnd thnt is about all." Moro than
onco 1 heard this sentiment expressed.
Ihe portraits you see are poi traits ot the
conventional Queen, and not tho real
STiMur.r.STS. Tho Louisville Journal
beautifully says ; "Thero nro limes when
tho pulso "lies low iu tho bosom, and
beats slow in tho veins; when tho spirit
sleeps tue sleep, apparently uint knows
no waking, in its houso of clay, an 1 tho
wir.dow-shuUots nro closed, and tho door
is hun? with tho invisible crnpo of mel
ancholly ; when wo turn tho golden sun
shine into pitchy blackness, and are very
willing to "fancy clouds whero no
clouds be." This is a state of sickness
when physic nmy bo thrown to tho dogs,
for wo will havo nono of it What sh ill
raise tho sleeping Lazarus? What shall
make the heart beat music again, and tho
pulses dance to it through all the myriad
thronged halls in our houso of life?
U'hat shall make tho sun kiss tho East
orn hills again for us with all his old a
waking gladness, and the night overflow'
with moonlight, music, love and flowers?
Lovo itsolf is tho greatest stimulant tho
most intoxicating of all and performs all
thoso miracles ; butitisa miracle itself,
and is not nt tho drug store, whatever
they say. Tho counterfeit is in tho mar
ket, but tho winged god is not a money

ninny things but still they nBk for stimu

Men try to drown the floating dead of
their own souls in tho wino-cup, but the
corpses will rise. We seo thoir facos in

sets tho world whirling again, nud tho
pulses playing wildost music, and the
thoughts galloping but the fast clock
runs down sooner, nnd tho unnatural
stimulation only leaves tho houso it fills
with wildost rovolry, moro silent, more
sad, more desertod, moro dead. There is
only ono stimulant that never fails, and

Happiness nlwnys goes, singing."
JfjrBeautiful extract helping a young
lauy out ot a uua hole.
"1 do not ever expect to
mat nc.l. "
sawi a young lady of U i-nty-tliive, mine
(ivo and twenty years ug). '
"Ah! M ," replied a facetious old
uncle, in a tone of mock pathos, "if you j
thought you should not bo married, you ;
ivouhl not Mccp a wink to-night."
i io noi expect to no married, persis
ted tho maiden, "and I have formed three
resolutions on tins subject': First, that 1
will not bocomo soured toward the world ;
secondly, that 1 will not talk scandal;
and thirdly, that I will not be ashamed lo
tell my age."
Tho girl read her destiny with a proph
die eye, and perhaps her resolutions have
been better kept than resobiliens gener
ally are. But then tho lemptalioii to vi
olate tho lirst two has been small. Tho
world has proved aveiy good one, pre
sontitig as lew nharp corners and as many
smooth surfaces as could reasonably have
been expected : and if tho wads, "It's!
hard work living," havo been echoed now
nnu then, tho prevailing una almost cm-!
slant sentiment h:is been : "Tho world 1
is lull of beauty ami love." Of course,!
when one's on good terms with foeiely,!
there is but little inducement to ppe'id
one's breath in ill reports.
As to the last resolution there are tran
sition years, when it requite somo little
heroism for a women, especially an un
married one, acknowledge her ago. To
render a sufficient reason for this may bo
dillicult ; let it be set down to the account
of vanity. But when ono has succeeded
fairly in weathering this stormy cape, tho
nnvigntion is plain once more. "It is
more blessed to bo approaching ago than
to bo receding from youth," some one
has said : and truly in some cases to say,
"J am foi ty-eight," than it was to say, " I
inn thirty three.." Ono even comes to
hear tho once dreaded term "old maid"
applied to herself with perfect equanimity
The -voids strike tho ear, but carry no
t In-ill lo the heart. Tha true woman feels
that she can stand on her own respectihil
ty, though sho stand alone. II ad shoin
llicted a wound'on the holy estato of
matrimony," that relation, more frequent
ly abused, perhaps, than any other of
God's blessed gifts had she done this, by
giving her hand without the pure offering
of the heart, sho might well ft el that sho
had taken astep dow nward. But stand
ing in tho unity in which (led created her,
sho can wrap the mautlo of her own self
respect about her, nnd while sho ncknow
cs thnt many a sister woman has in her,
koej ing holy andbeautifiil treasures which
sho has not, sho will feel J that, by tho
faithful dishargo ef her own duties, she
also performs a perfect work in tho world
Many nnd sacred may bo her ties to earth
ly friends ; or, if theso bo wanting,
"Gales from heaven, if so he will,
Sweeter melody may wako
On ho lonoly mountain-rill,
Than the meeting waters mako,
Who hath the Father nnd tho son,
May be left, but not nlono."
The Proi-f.ii Mannkb kor Wohex to, "All tho Year Round" has tho
following ; "As you look from your wiu

pother? Green with violet ; cold with
dark crimson or lilac; pale blue with scar
let or pink. A cold color generally ro.
quiro a warm tint to givo life to if. Gray
und pnlo blue, lor instance do not coni
bino well, both being cold colors. White
and black arc safe to wear, but tho latter
is not favorable to il.u'k complexions.
Pink is, for some skin.', tho most becom.,
ins ; not however, if thero is much color
in tho cheeks or lips, nnd if there be even
a suspicion of rod in cither hair or com
plexions. PoAch color is perhaps, ono of
the most elegant colors worn. Maize is
very peooming, particularly to ptrsons

Live for Good.
Thousands of men breathe, moovcan ;
live pass off tho stage of life, and arc
heard of no more. Why ? they did not a
particle of it in tho world; and none were
pleased by them, none could point to
them as the instruments of thoir redemp
tion; not a word they spoke could be recall
ed, and so they perished; thoir light wont
out in darkness, and thoy were not re
membered more than the insects of yes-
terday, V ill you thus live and die 7 (,
man immortal! J'ogood, and leave bo
hind you a monument of virtuo that tho
storm of time can never destroy. Writo
your name in kindness, love nnd mercy,
on tho hearts of thousand you como in
contact with year by year nnd you will
never ho forgotten. jo; yoiir nnmo,
your deeds will bo ns legible on the hearts
you leave behind, ns tho stars on tho
brow of tho evening. Good deeds will
shine as brightly on the earth ns the stars
of heaven.
Blondin ox Fire Narrow EscapB.
Blondin, the tight-rope performer, met
with a serious accident a few nights ago
during his exhibition at Chilicotho, Ohio.
The Cincinnati Gar.ctto says: "After
dusk ho gaye a performance of trundling
a wheelbarrow neross a rope, nnd to mako
the feat moro terrific, he encircled him
self in a bla.o of fireworks, which wero ig
nited simultaneously with his starting.
Before ho hnd accomplished half his task,
ono of tho pieceB prematurely exploded
and set fire lo his clothing. The peril of
his situation could not be seen by tho
thousands of spectators below, in conso
quenco of tho constant emission of sparks,
and the adventurous Blondin had no
thing lo do but walk tho ropo and suffer
the torturo of biing slowly roai ted. Hav
ing nccomplishcd tho distance, ho, by his
own efforts succeeded in cxtiuguishinjj
the ll.imes, hut notbeforo his back wits vo
ry badly burned."
