Congress in 1SS0.'
We find the following in the Columbus
Enquirer, a paper which has always given
honest credits, or else we should suspect
it was a sly J'Piinch," from some sarcas
tic observer across the Atlantic:
July 5, 1690. Mr. D. Farcer, Dem.,
of Kentucky, brought forward a motion
for the suppression of oral discussion in
the 1 Legislature.- The he Table mem
ber proposed, as a substitute, that all
questions at issue should be settled by
single combat, bowie-knife or pistol.
Honorable members were, up to the pres
ent period, in the habit of sticking at no
thing, and he (Mr. Farcer) thought that
this proposal would certainly obviate
such a state of , things by giving them
something to stick at.
Mr. Barker, (Dem.) of Virginia, sec
onded the motion, and also he would be
happy to second any of the combatants
in want of his assistance. lie believed
his qualifications in . this respect were
well known to the honorable House 't and
if any member was ignorant of them, he
would take the liberty; of recapitulating.
The honorable member wns here proceed
ing to give . the details of several san
guinary difficulties, when he; was inter
rupted by : ..;. '
Mr. Whittle, (Whig) of Tenn. What
d.es the honorable member mean when
thrusting the details of his duels on the
House? Good wine needs no bush, and
a successful duelist needs no praise.
There was no danger of the honorable
member's deeds not being trumpeted to
the world, because everybody knows that
"murder will out.'.'
Mr. Barker -You are a liar and a
thief ! (No sensation whatever.)
Mr. Whittlp The honorable rascal
opposite has called me a liar and a thief.
I believe that the House will support me
when I term him a murder and as
sassin. (Less sensation than before.)
Mr. Barker Who robbed the man on
the steamboat? A-h-h!
Mr. Whittle -Who ran away from the
Revere House without paying his bill ?
Mr. Barker (shaking his fist) Silver
Mr. Whittle I did not insure my
house for double its value and then set it
Mr. Barker If the honorable member
ain't a coward, he'll have it out with me
Mr. Whittle (jumping on the table)
Come on you ruffian.
The Speaker Fair play, gentlemen.
Recollect, if you please, that the pro
ceedings will be reported.
" The honorable members then had a set
to, in which both displayed considerable
science, and a great deal of animosity.
Bets ran high as to ; who wrould win. and
we understand that the Speaker speculat
ed heavily. After five rounds, however,
Whittle gave in, and Barker was carried
home Iv his triumphant friends. We be-
leve that a meeting between the gen
tlemen is arranged to come off to-morrow.
This incident agreeably. relieve!
the monotony of the week's debates, that
were growing exceedingly tedious. :'
. The sin was long since atoned for, and
at last the little spot of sunshine crept ia
his cell, and entering by the key-hole cf
his door led him forth into the bright rays
of liberty. - He was conducted to the of
fice of the prison by McGaw, and a cit
izen's dress, in place of a prison suit
given him, and led into an inner room,
where stood she who, years before, had
promised before God to be his. What a

' On the evening train the two arrived
in this city, and were, by one of our di
vines, joined in marriage. We were wit
nesses to the ceremony, and shall never
forget it. Never forget the eye moist
ened with happiness, nor the throbbing
of the heart that had so long waited and
trusted. Saved, saved ! May the future
be all the brighter for the cloud that has
hung so long over it, and true friends
ever ready to lend a helping hand. We
believe in woman's love in woman's de
votion the more, afier knowing ths facts
above stated. God bless the true heart
wherever found. ' ' .

Two Elopements in one Family the
Same Night !
In our last issue we noticed the fact that
a young couple from Fayette County Ky.,
arrived at the Burnet House, Tuesday
night and were married almost immedi
ately after, the young man being greatly
alarmed lest his father, who he once
thought he saw at a station on the rail
way between this city and Cynihiana,
was in close pursuit, and might arrive in
time to tear his betrothed from his arms.
The sequel to the story, which was de
veloped in a few hours later, is as fol
lows: While the young couple were receiving
the congratulations of those who had wit
nessed the ceremony at the Burnet, a sim
ilar tragedy, or comedy whichever the
reader pleases was being enacted at the
Spencer House. The young man had nui
been mistaken when he thought he saw
his father on the road, for the old ras
cal, who, it seems, was m the same hu
mor with his son, had actually eloped
with a young widow in his neighborhood,
and came to this city on the same errand
and on the same train. They escaped re
cognition by taking, as it happened, dif
ferent cars, and stopping at difTenent ho
When the young man learned how
matters stood, accompanied by his bride,
he repaired to the Spencer House, and
sending his card up to the old gentleman,
who little suspected that his hopeful off
spring was in the city, much less mar
ried, he came down unattended, when the
following conversation took place.
Old Gentleman "Well sir; what are
you doing here ?"
Young Gentleman "I learned last
evening that you were about to elope with
widow , and have followed you to
the city to see if it could be possible you
could do such a thing."
O. G. "That's very considerate in
you, young man, (spoken somewhat tart
ly,) but is it any particular business of
yours what I do?"
y. G "O, no; but the example, the '
Woman's Lofe A Beautiful Inci-
Six years ago, says aMilwaukie paper
a young man just entering on life, under
the influence of rum, committed a crime
against society, was tried in the city, con
victed, and sent to Waupun, where he
served out his time behind the prison
bars. Before his trial a fair girl had
promised to link fortunes with him, and
cruel was the blow to her. But she lov
ed him. All through his six years did
she wait for his release. With a true
woman's heart, she believed him innocent,
innocent, at least, before God ; and like
the magnet, she held on her steady way,
her heart ever pointing to-the future.
Long were the years to him.:. Slow pas
sed the hours. Seconds were minutes,
minutes were hours, hours days, days
weeks, weeks months, months years, and
years were like ages.' Every tolling of
the prison-bell struck deep upon his heart,
and every sunset, took' another thread
from the long skein. Nor were the hours
less weary to her. Hope, that blessed an
gel, sat by her day by day, and reposed
on her pillow by night, borne there were
who laughed at her holy love, who sneer
ed so meanly at her lover, a prisoner miles
away. But little it mattered to her
others might laugh she wept: others
might point to a man in prison garb, toil
ing away from morn till night, with but
one star to guide bun on. ahe saw but
the honest soul that might be saved, or
lost, and, woman that she was, .nerved
herself to hear their jibes and jeers.
Blessed words came to him in his lone
lv cell, words of love, of kindness, nnd
stronger grew the heart of him who had
trulv his better ansrel to watch over hi
unbroken fortune. Each word from her
lightened the hours as they slowly went
by, and larger grew the day on which
lihertv was to come. Men visited Iiim
and with careless word or speaking eye,
threw into his cell a maddening thought
on which his soul must feed and trembling
ly shrink to the darkest corner of his liv
n(r temDle. Then a letter from her
would dash aside the dark curtains and
beckoned him a spot of sunshine outside,
andbevondthe present reach. So pas
sed the year. Friends died and ha vrept
O. G. "Zounds! sir, do you come to
teach me propriety ? Don't you suppose
I know what's rhjht and wrong?"
Y. G. "Why certainly you do, or you
ought to ; but what would you say if I
were to do as you have done ?'
O. G. "Say ? I would say you had
more spirit than! ever gave you credit
Y. G. "Woudn't you be angry?"
O. G. "Of course not, you dog; but
weat makes you ask such a silly question
as mat r
The young blood here began a series
of gymnastic exercises, which made the
old gpntleman think his son had sudden
ly been deprived of his wits. A moment
after, however, the young man darted cut
of the room, and before the f ulitr could
recover his self possession, he returned
with his blushing bride; when the two
bent down before him, and half au.libly
said, "Your blessing."
It was now the old man's turn to play
rnad, but comprehending and forgiving all
in a moment, he only said :
"You young rascal! If you are this
bad now, what will you be when )'ou have
my years? Come up stairs and see your
Both couples left yesterday on the same
train for their "Old Kentucky Home."
A Story for Boys-
It is related of a Parisian mother, that
on her giving her son forty pieces of sil
ver as his portion, she made him swear
never to tell a lie, and said :
"Go, my son, I consign thee to God,
we shall not meet again till the day of
The youth went away, and the par
ty he traveled with were assaulted by
One fellow asked the boy what he had,
and he answered :
"Forty dinars are sewed up in my
not be false to my mother, to whom I
promised never to tell a lie."
"Child," said the robber, 'art thou so
mindful of thy duty to thy mother at thy
years, and am I insensible at my age of
the duty I owe to God ? Give ine thy
hand that I may swear repentance on it."
He did so, and his followers were struck
with the scene.
"You hare been our leader in guilt,"
they said to the chief, "be the same in
the path of virtue," and taking the boy's
hand, they took the oath cf repentance
What a Little Sarin? T7ill do.
Figures sometimes produce almost in
credible results. Thus, for instance, if
a young man, on his twentieth birth-day,
will invest SlOO in any stock paying ten
per cent, annually, and thereafter will
invest the same amount and the accumu
lation of interest, he will be worth when
he is thirty years old, 31,753. when for
ty years old,SG,300, when fifty years old.
S18,150, when sixty years oil, 49.700.
How simple, then, is the plan by which
a youth of the present day can pass his
old age in comfort and luxury !. He has
only to regulate his expenses so as to
save one hundred dollars from his income.
If the amount saved be large, then the
sum total will .be increased in' propor

A widow lady of our acquaintance has
two little boys, aged about-eight years
twins who for oneness of size, features,
voice and action, would rival the celebra

so much alike that even the mother is at
times puzzled to know which is Willie
and which is Walter. When one deserv
es a spanking, the other frequently f-ets
it and on account of their exact like
ness to each other, she recently came
near loosing one of them- She had oc
casion to administer a small dose of par
egoric to Willie, and a few moments af
ter Walter seemed to nee-; something of
the same sort. She turned but a mo
ment to get the medicine, but in that time
the boys had got mixed, and by some
means Willie swallowed another dose,
and shortly afterwards went to bed and
fell asleep. He continued in a stupor for
some ten or fourteen hours, much to the
astonishment and alarm of the mother,
who saw that upon Walter the drug had
no effect. It was not until Willie told
herthat she had given him two doies that
she discovered the mistake. But to the
The mother having some business to
transact in the store, took the two boys
with her. They were dressed exactly
alike, and during the stay cf their mo
ther they each took a stand in separate
doors fronting on Water-street, to see
what was to be seen. While standing
there an old gentleman, who was walk

miring the little fellow's intelligent coun

asked him his name.
"My name is Willie, sir," replied thei
"Ah, a pretty name, and a very pretty
boy," said the old gent., patting him on
ihe head. "Here's a dime for you."
Passing on to the next door, he ob
served Walter standing in the same pos
ture that Willie had occupied, and sup
posing it was Willie who had run thire
to see him as he passed, he stopped again
to lake another admiring look at him.
"Do you live in Mobile, Willie?" ask
ed the old man.
"My name is not Willie," said Walter.
"Why, didn't you just now tell me, a;

"No Sir, my name is Walter,"
"Oh, I thought you said Willie, when
you stood in the other door, and I gare
you a dime."
"I ain't been in the other door, and
you didn't give me a dime," said Wal
ter. The old gentleman looked at him for
a moment, as though the good opinion he
had formed of him was fast changing,
and then walked slowly back to Willie's
door. The old gent looked at him stead

not tell stories. Yod must be a good boy,
