In 1844 Mr. Prentiss moved lo New

January, 1848, ho was employed In n

Tho next day the court room Was
crowded to its nltio-t cupucitr, Mr.
I'rentias, in annulling up and eoinuivnt-

dealt in burula ol acuthiiig, wilhetiiig
rtmctions on tho ctuiductol I tin do

Hore Mr. Prentiss mado a deep pause,
and, at il reflecting on tho severity of
the laniuauo bo had used, ho turned
from the jury and tbua addreased the
Court: ' Muy it pleano the Court, on

presence of ihia vast assemblage, to

The result wus that young Henry l Iny
lrwin.lhooldoslson of Mr. Irwin.aspiri
ted young mun only 22 Yea is old, sent by
tho hands of hia second, Mr. Hubert
Johnson, of Kentucky, a peremptory
challenge to Prentiss. Tho friends of
Mr. Prentiss. Kuillio Peyton, the Unit:
ed Stales District Attorney, and the
lute Alex. C. Bullitt, editor of the Pi
cayune, advised him to declino tho chal
lenge on the ground that lio was not
responsible lor lunguatro used profes
sionally, and that Mr. James Irwin on
ly had the right to demand satisfaction,
which was done to save ynung Ir
win, as they felt the duel would move
fulitl to him. lint Prentiss mid the
challenge stated that young Irwin's
father was unablo to attend lo sucn
mutters, and if ho declined it would
only lead to aUvel tight i that lit ad
mired Ihe spirit ol the gallant boy und
appreciated his noble feelings, and ihere
being no alternative, ho wus compelled
to L'ivo him satisfaction. Tho chal
lengo was consequently accepted, and
time given lo Mr. Prentiss to ariangu
his ull'uirs. In the meanwhile (icncrul
Huston wus called in consultation. Ho
advised that if it was possible lo cfl'ect
n reconciliation, it should he done, as
tho result in any alternative would
prove fatally disastrous to the families
of both parties, the aunt of young Ir
win being the wife of John Bell, ot
Tennessee, who was the great friend
of Prentiss. (Jen. Huston suggested
that II. (J. Hurney and U. F. Morse be
selected to act us umpires, and accom
pany ihe parlies to the ground. Tho
principals and seconds met ut Puss
Chrisliunin February, 181K The weap

It wus then proposed to Mr. Irwin's
seconds that Harney and Morse bo call

were placed, w hich wus finally agreed

Alter coiisnlluiuiii Harney unit Morse

ot condcmniilion wnnn ne ten puuiic

father. In vain be struggled to free
himself from this hideous phantom
which haunted him day and night. He-
sorting lo dissipation to drive away its

THE VALVE OE VOXDJMEXTS.
By condiments wo moan substances
like sugar, spices, vinegar and others
that are employed to impart flavor
and piquancy to tho staple lootls
They are usually regurded as nou es
senlisl, and some writers on dietetics
have gono so fur as to condemn their
use, unless in ruro instunces mid in the
most infinitesimal proportions. J, ike
all good things they aro liable to ho
abused, but when properly used they
aro vuluitble elements inourduily food.
Prof. Voit, of Munich, limn whom
there is no higher uuthority on such a
subject, considers that their impor-
tunco has not been sufficiently recog
nixed. It is not enough that tood
should ooniam uhmont iry principles in
proper quantity ; lo render it really
nutritious there must also he a supply
ol condiment. These huvo been coin
pured to oil in u niucliinu. which nei
ther Inukea good Ibu watu of material
nor supplies motive power, yet causes
it to work bettor they render csseu
Hal scivicu in thu processes id nutri
Hon though Ihey n re not ol themselves
uhlo lo prevent the waste ol any part
of the body. "A dietary deprived of
condiments, a mere mixture ot ulilneii
lary principles without tostu or smell,
is unendiiruble, and causes, nausea und
vomiting." Il is not until condiments
aro added to aliment that it really be
comes tood. Kxireinu hunger muy en
able us to dispense with them, as it
muy compel us lo duvour w hut at other
limes would be disgusting, but under
ordinary circumstances ihey are uu
esseutiui part of our diet.
Condiments bavo au important in
flueiice upon thu process ui digestion
and nutrition. The mere sight or
thought of a savory dish "makes the
mouth water, --that is, II makes the
salivury glands pour out their secre
tion copiously, which is an important
stage in digestion, especially lor cer
tain article of food. Experiments
made upon dogs show that a similar
effect is produced upon the gastric se
cretion, and lb us the work ol digestion
is further promoted, The loss ol thu
sense of lusle would be not merely a
lists of enjoyment, but a positive inju
ry to tho digestive system. The very
smell ot food muy do ui good, just as
certain odor will restore a person who
has fronted. .
It does -not follow because Condi
mcnis are uselul, that we may not
have too much ot them; on the con
trarv. their beat ell'ocl depends upon
llieir being used in moderation. 1 lie
more decided tho flavor ot any article
ol tuod, the sooner does It pull upon
Ibe appetite. Jl is una ol the peculiar
merits of French cookery thai flavors
are so delicately blended ; no one is
specially prominent, and yet by their
different comhiiialions a wonderlul va
riety of appetising effects is produced

Tho llerahl't speeiul cable gives a full
account of tho closing of thu Paris Ex
position and tho distribution of awards.
Preparation for this event had occu
pied several months, and the result
was magnificent and imposing. The
great gliiss roofed nave, usually devo
ted to tho purposes of a winter garden,
was converted into a vast hall, with
boarded floor, carpeted with crimson
and qiherwiso decorated with all that
taste characteristic of the French.
The eye wns Tnmpleicly satisfied by
all the conditions of llio great specta
cle, with tho vastness ot tho iiropor-
lions, with the brilliant but harmoni
ous color, perfect and softly subdued
hy light, and with tho curelul adapta
tion of the decorations and devices to
.Nothing could bo more admirable
than the urningemenls. Each ticket
bore on its liico the number of the sec
tion und number of the seat lo which
tho holder was assigned, whilo on Iho
ruverso sido was a diagram of tho pal
ace, indicating the enlranco to each
section. The (lias, or central platform
lor the President ol tho Republic and
tho authorities wus situated in tho cor
ner tnuuro nearest tho Place do la
Concorde. At un elevution of twenty
feet was llio platform, containing six
ty seats lor tbo Chief Executive, for
eign princes, diplomats, Presidents and
Bureau of iho two chuinbers of Legis-
lulure, special Ambassadors, Ministers
and Periods of tho Seine, Chief of Po
lice and siibordinnte Cubincl ollicers.
Tho staircase hading to this plat
form wus flunked by two enormous
pedestals, decorated with various tro
phies ol industry und science. Al each
side were beiiuliliilly decorated hoxes.or
stalls, specially sd apart lor the wives
of President .yucJIuhon, ot (.unmet
Ministers und of members of iho Dip
lomatic Corps. In a spueo separating

On both sides ol the stage and in front

number of boxes for ladies.. On the
benches reaching up Irom tho scuts of
honor to tho gallery were pluccs lor
Council ol Stale, llio magistracy, mu

and members ol ihe Bar.
ln front ol the dias wero 3 000 seals
for the lucky persons wjio hod obtain

two immense pquures, separated from
tho other poilion of the nave by a
wide passage, beyond which again
wero place 'for the' thousand jurors.
Beyond tht) jurors was an inclined
plane, with seats for 8,000 spectators,
raised so that cvory person could dis
tinctly see everything that transpired
on tho dius.

tho booming nf cannon announced the
upproacb ot Iho Presidential cortege,
which had made a sensation as it pass-
ed through Iho principal streets Irom
the Elysees. The Marshal President,
dressed in the full unilorm of his rank
in .the army, entered the nave preced

and Muster of Ceremonies. On his
right walked Don Frnncicco d' Assir.es,
on his loll His Royal Highness the
Prince of Wales, and followed by the
Duo d'Aosta, Count of 1' landers and
tho Prince of Sweden, who took their

The Minister of Agriculture and

replied that he had none, as ho know

The proceedings were ull over by
three o'clock. Paris, ho-rovcr, kept
up the file. The houses were decora
ted with varioiiB flags and devices, and
scenes of excitement and gaiety were
observable everywhere. To-night the
city was brilliantly illuminated ami all
thu streets wero thronged. Tho Min
ister of Agriculture and Commerce, M
I'ort, guve a grand banquet, at which
tho Foreign Ministers, his colleagues
and many other distinguished guests
Thomas Ewing Sherman, son ol tho
General, who wus curulully educated
for the bur, according lo thu desiro ol
his tulhur, prefers the Church and is
about to go to Europe to lit himself for
the priesthood. This fact is one of
more than ordinary interest. Young
Sherman incurs the displeasure of bis
lulher opposes his wUhus with evident
regret in thus turning Irom tho puth
murked out for him by his fond parent
and retiring from thu world to under
take the arduous and pecuniarily un
profitable labors of a clerical life in the
order ot Jesuits. To most peop.e this
chok e of a profession will seem a sacri
fice, and many will pronounce it lool
ish. This young man hud a brilliutil
and promising f uture before him. The
favorite son ot the (icncrul of llio Army,
whose tumo us a soldier is world-wide ;
connected on ull sides by alliance in
social life tho most powerful and re
spocluble ; carefully educated and pre
pared for tho legal profession nothing
seemed wanting but his own ambition
lur him to enter upun a lite radiant
with prom iso und lull of assurances ol
success and worldly happiness. Prob
ably no young man in tins country ever
had more powernu reasons lor adopt
ing the courso ol life murked out for
him hy bis lather. General Sherman
had evidently set great store by the
young man, and entertained high hopes
ol bis success in mo. lie nau sent nun
to Georgetown College, wbero ho took
iho full course of classics and mathe
matics. Yule instructed him in the
natural sciences and modern languages,
and the St. Louis Law School uf tho
Washington University graduated him
but a few weeks ago. Tbo stem Gen
eral hud probably cast the horoscope
of his son with bright visions of a pub
lic life at the Bur, on the llench, in the
Nutionul Councils and Cabinet, and,
perhaps, in even a higher position
And theso wero all within reuch and
reason, it the young man bud fairly de
veloped the Sherman Ewing character
us exempnnud c-y his kinsmen on ooiu
sides of bis houso. But this young
scion of 'the Sherman slock decided
otherwise, and as is evident from his
published letter to his kinsman, Pofes
sor Ruber, not without a painful strug
gle between his natural affections und
religious convictions, a fact which docs
credit to him as a worthy son, solicit
ous to render the blow to hi stern but
kind lutber as light as possible. He
s.tys that ho takes the lull responsibil
ity of tho step as, indeed, he alono
must and without his luther "ap.
proval or consent" to whom the young
mini's choice must indued have ap
peared "startling and strange." The
occurrence is notable as an act of inde
pendence, in view of the surroundings,
of a choice hy a young man with every
thing to bind him to the world of u
calling and profession, which, in our
tune and country, is not surrounded by
attractions fur pride or ambition.
Young Sherman is now in liis twenty-
third year. His term of probation ol
seven years, according lo the rigorous
discipline ot the Jesuits, will expire
with his thirtieth your tho youngest
ago if we may use the term allowed
or oidliialion by this order. 1 ueti he
will bo fairly and fully launched upon
his new cureer 8 celibate lulher in
the Church of liome. Should he prove
pulpit man of a high order, great
possibilities await him, lor the Old
Church, as history shows, is ever politic
and utilizes brains and position in the
shrewdest and most tolling manner, it
is not dillicult to imagine, if young
Sherman possesses a tube of the quail-
tic of a Mussillon, a Iloiirdulone or a
Chateaubriand, that In return to his
native land would creulo a decided
sonsulion. Indued, it may be thai the
name of Sherman, already fumihar to
the public ear in connection with a
General, a Cabinet Minister, a Senator
and a Judge, In say nothing of old
Roger of the Revolution, will yet ho
associated with the now dignity of an
