Senator JTackson'a Bloody Duel.
Senator James Jackson of Georgia fought
a bloody duel lief ore bo canio to Vashinston.
Ho was an Englishman by birth, but he came
to Savannah when a lad, studied law, was a
leading Freemason, and fought gananuy 111
the Revolutionary Avar. Ha killed Lieuten
ant Governor Wells in 17S0, in a duel, and
was engaged in wai "-" -
bor.or," until ho flnaliy determined to accept
a challenge on such terms as would make it
his last duel. So he presermeu, as me iti ms,
that each party, armed with a doublo bar
reled gun loaded with buctsaot, ana v.itu a
hunting knife, should row himself in a skiff
to designated points on opposite sides of
the Savannah river. wnen tuo oij
clock struck li each party-should start and
row his skiff to a small island in tne nuuuic
of the river, which was wooded and covered
wilh underbrush. Un arriving at ino iiauu
each party was to moor his skiff, stand y it
for ten minutes, and then go about on the
island till the meeting took place.
The seconds waited on the mainland until
after 1 o'clock, when they heard three gun
shots and loud and angry cris. Then all
was still. At daylight, as had been agreed
upon, the seconds went to ttie island and
found Jackson lying on the ground, insensible
from the loss of blood, and his antagonist ly
ing across him, dead. Jackson recovered,
but would never relate his experience on that
nisbt, nor was ho ever challenged azain. He
