BLADENSBURG DUELING GROUND..
The March number of Harper's Dfagazihe
contains a history of this fatal dueling ground,
from Whidh we take the following account of
the Mason and McCarty,duel,:whieli occurred
1i1.19011 AND DeCAUTY
' Oneof the most desperate of those melan=
(Moly enconnters . which have Made this place
so' memorable was that of the 6th of February,
1819, between Gem Armistead T. Mason, pie- •
vipusly a Senator in Congress from Virginia,
and Col. John M'Carty, a citizen of the same
State. The difficulty between them had ex,
isted some time.. It originated in that most
prolifiti retiree of pelitonal . enthity,. -
The parties were second cousins i but notwith
clouding thiti, their quarrel appeari to have
beau prosecuted with au animosity' as uuspa; -
ring as their relationship was intimate. Sev
_previous to the final meeting, a
violent nletriention had' taken place between
them at Leesburg. -in consequence of- Mason's
having questioned ll'earty's right -- to - vote: -
M'Carly at once challenged Mason, but in his
challenge lie prescribed . the terms andoooi- •
'tioos of the -duel. This dictation of terms-
Mason would not submit to l: consequently
by the advice of hiti k friends, le-declined the
° challenge._ At the .same. time,. honevei, be
sent word to M'Carty that ho was ready toenc
crpt a regular_ challenge, in -a -proper form.
M'Carty poi'po attention to the message, but
.t.h_with_p_ithAshed Mason as a coward. Ma:
'son then sent a challenge to .111'Cnity, which
M'Carty declined' on tho ground Of cowarkllce.
in 'Mason, as shown.by his refusal to fight in
-the first instance. —At-this-junctan : a 7 number
of Mason's friends united in a letter,, begging.
biur to take uo further notice of Nrea'fty. Al
though :-M. , ao'n was burning tinder a sense of
the wrongS ho had received. he yielded to their
entreaties, and the affair was . to , all appear- -
sates at an end.
Some months' afterwards, however, 'While
riding to Richmond in the stage,. with b gen
tleman of high thllititry and politioul standing,
Ito was WWI that he ought to challenge M'Carty
ho decided to do asioon as he
reached Richmond. It was in vain that his
friends now 'endeavored le dissuade him. Ile '
-would tot listen to their appeals:• In the 1(10 :
gunge tf the cald'subsequently published by
theta, "he bad resolved on challenging

gave, and all the efforts they made to dissuade •

ments and restraints imposed by the laws of
Virginia in regard to dueling, or infleepeed,
perhaps, by a determination not to violate her
statutes while holding his commission as Gen
eral of. Militia, he resigned, made his will, and
add' e,sed , M'Carty an invitation to the field.
In this tiote, which betterlthan any description
pot-trays tub epirit in which the ountroverey
Wits conducted, ho. says: "I have resigned
illy commission for the ;eclat and pur
-1 pose of fighting you ; and I am dow free to.
accept a challenge and to fight a duel. The
public mind has become tranquil, and all sus- .
picion of the. furt her prosecution of, our quar

I interview had taken place between Gen. Ma- •
ion and his seconds, and was inclosed Ao them
in , i letter containing positive insiructions for
'their -government. He writes them: "You
will present the enclosed cemmunication tb
Mr. Johit'M'garty; and tell him at once that
'you aro authorized by me to challenge him,

THE VVIFE AT HOME.
It ie only . within the circle of her domestic
assiduity shot we can- judge of the true, worth
of a woman, or make ntearrectestimate of her
forbearance, her virtue, -and her felicity.
There are 'displayed all the finer feelings 'of
which the pure heart of woman is susceptible.
It is in the midst of trial . andstifferit;g, mis;
fortune and anguish, that the nobler traits of
the true wife are displayed in all their 'char
neterictio grandeur, Adversity only itioreades -
the ardor of her attachment, and the constan•
cy and intensity of her devotion are eneh as
.no-changes-• or. chances - can subdue. - There'
are no recriminations to drive love away, no .
violence to allienate the heart; no neglect to
impel desperation. All is love,•kindness and
persuasion.. Oh, what- is- mofe - eiteet, more
calculated to enhance-the- value of domestic
relationship, than' for a man, oast down, wor
ried, almost drivel:lto despair,'to turn his feet,
steps away fromthe busy world and mingle
with the loved ones at home I—to have a place
where fooling rind sympathy aro manifested ;
where„glance responds to gliince,.and heart t o •

yet unobtrusive In its counsel, sends him, forth

beams of sensibility, generally excite the same
passions which they express,"and the winning
iittraction of their smile' invests them with pe
• culiar charm, like the variegated .hues with
whiclia brilliant rainbow tints the gloomy
clouds. The proud 'and dangerous gift of
gettiui is not nocessiiry. Let a woman pee

it in the most appropristo Manner to all oe
purposes of life. Let there he truthfulness

in the ready flow of conversation, captivating
in its vivuoity, brilliant in its fresh concePtio s
charming in its polished sentences, dazzling
in its wittioisms,and instructive in its solidity.
True; these qualifications, combined with those
constituted to render home happy, may make •
a woman the embodiment of all which the most
noble and-imaginative heart could wish or de
sire, but they are not essentiully necessary.
A woman with ordinary features and ordinary -
abilities may make home very pleasant and
agreetible. And who would not prefer such
a one to her who—no mattei - how -beautiful or
bewichtiug—puts on her smiles like her orna-
Meats, and•Aresses her mind, like her person,
for compauy,in painted colors, fiatitiouschari
ty, and pinchbeck benevolence? The true se
cret of making home happy is to haiie the heart' .
in the riyht place, to have the charity to over
look foibles, to learn to forgive andforget,and -
never be'ioo proud to make confessions—ever
as it were, intuitively with a blind man's in-.
Tita* detecting Grose thousand little think!
that evince, in silence, a devotimiand affection
unspeakable. - But,-above all, the wife should '-
possess that genuine piety which leads her to
forget herself in seeking the glory of God and
the happiness of her fellow beings: ThOlide- -
-ful-attaiuinents of life should be blentiod•with
the lighter accomplishments, and • the attrac;
tive itinenity,,of her manners Should spring less
troth the_polish of intercourse than'frem - the-
iulforn sweetness of her disposition. She
must bo u WOlllOll true to herself, her nature,
and her destiny—one daring to break aw•y,
from fashion and the allotments of- pleasure,
and to seek her happiness in-the patik.of, duty
MOWN' She must be:sensitive in tier °Toni
