LINCOLN'S ONLY DUEL.
( By Col. T. B. Thorpe. )
i * i i l-IR mnrrmrv nf ATr
Lincoln will always
be popular. Em
bodying wit h i n
himself the human
itarian triumph of
one of the most
tions that ever con
vulsed the world
and therefore pos
grandeur of association that is accord
ed to the most noted personages in his-
tpry , still ho has never been , in any
public act of his life , elevated above
the understandings and affections of
the masses of the people. Kind-hearted
and overflowing with sympathy by na
ture , yet he was controlled by an hon
esty of purpose that kept him unyield
ing where principle was concerned ,
making him self-poised amid opposi
tion , and perfectly self-reliant when
the hour of action arrived , yet in small
as well as in great matters the inher
ent humor of his mental composition
prevailed. It is .easy , therefore , to
imagine , that if Mr. Lincoln deemed it
necessary to appear as principal in a
duel , he would naturally attract % to
himself such surroundings as might
turn all the intentions of a tragedy in
to the realities of a farce. The year
1842 was one of great political excite
ment In the state of Illinois , and con
spicuous among the master spirits
were Mr. Lincoln and Gen. Shields.
Both at the time were practicing law
yers at the Springfield bar , both held
prominent official positions , and both
were accepted leaders in their respec
tive parties. These gentlemen were
warm personal friends.though opposed
in politics , and differing as much in
their mental qualities as they did in
their personal appearance.Gen. Shields
[ | i being of medium height , Mr. Lincoln
of unusual altitude.
What eventually brought about a
disagreement between these gentle
men , that made Gen. Shields feel it
necessary to send a challenge to Mr.
Lincoln , was never certainly known.
When it is recollected , however , that
these gentlemen , as party leaders fre
quently came together on "the stump , "
it is not difficult to imagine that Mr.
Lincoln may have got off one of his
telling stories at the expense of his
friend that might have been at the
moment construed into a personal af
front. Whatever was the cause , it is
certain that the "cartel" was seriously
written and solemnly borne to Mr.
Lincoln by Gen. Whitesides , a gentle
man then holding a prominent place at
the bar and an important command in
the Illinois militia.
Up to the time of which we write
there had been but one duel fought
within the limits of Illinois , and that
occurred In her territorial condition.
One of the combatants was shot dead
t on the field , and the survivor was in-
i stantly hanged to the limb of a neigh-
i boring tree by the friends of the slain.
Such summary punishment made the
"code of honor" unpopular , and a pro
vision was consequently engrafted up
on the state constitution rendering
principals and seconds engaged in a
duel ineligible for any political office.
This made "affairs of honor" impolitic
and unfashionable , and all personal
difficulties were deemed honorably set
tled by a rough and tumble fight , or
by an appeal for justice to the good
sense of the community.
In society , therefore , wnere dueling
h tl been for years morally and legally
offensive , it was not easy to find a
"friend" possessed of the requisite
knowledge to conduct such a prover
bially delicate affair ; in fact , at this
time there was but one person In or
about Springfield who was supposed to
have the required experience , and the
reputation was founded upon vague
tradition rather than from any abso
lute knowledge. The gentleman al
luded to as this expert was Dr. Merry-
man , a popular physician , distinguish
ed for his good nature , professional
skill and varied literary and scientific
attainments. In his youth he ran off
to sea. Trained in this rough school ,
he naturally , in his maturer years , aft
er obtaining his diploma as surgeon ,
accepted a professional position on
board of a South American privateer.
The doctor was fond of a joke , and not
Indisposed , while attending to his busi
ness calls , to lighten the gloom of the
sick room by detailing to his patients
his terrible experiences on the "Span
ish main , " all of which the honest "in
land people" received with due awe
and admiration. The doctor was also
known to have acted once as a princi
pal in a duel , and to have been asso
ciated with several in his capacity as
surgeon , and he boasted , in his pecul
iar way , that he had killed a white
man , a negro and an Indian by virtue
of his diploma. He was. withal , a
good shot on the wing , a capital fencer
and a conscientious believer In the
thirty-six articles of Galway.
To this gentleman , his most intimate
personal friend , bearing the warlike
message put in his hand by Gen.
Whitesides , Mr. Lincoln went for ad
vice , expressing in advance his readi
ness to meet the demand made upon
him if the cause of the misunderstand
ing could not be amicably arranged.
The doctor , with this authorization ,
called upon the aggrieved party's
"friend , " and after all proper endeav
ors to bring about peace failed , form
ally accepted the challenge , the prin
cipals were officially notified of the re
sult , and the seconds proceeded to ar-

range the preliminaries for a hostile
meeting. Gen. Whitesides was totally
ignorant of all and singular of the
thirty-six articles of Galway , and he
therefore naturally deferred every
thing regarding details to the presum
ed experience and superior knowledge
of the doctor. It was , therefore , speed
ily settled that the belligerents should
meet at an early day in the state of
Missouri , and opposite to the town of
Alton. The weapons , broadswords.
United States pattern ( then a very
heavy and clumsy weapon ) . The fight
to be across a barrier four feet high
and four feet wide , and the duel to
cease at the "first blood. "
At the time agreed upon the princi
pals , with the seconds , pursuing dif
ferent routes , started for the "field of
honor. " Mr. Lincoln and his friends
made the journey by a small stage
coach , the Interior of which , for want
of capacity , compelled Mr. Lincoln to
ride with the driver. From his exalt
ed position , sword in hand , he amused
himself with hacking at the overshad
owing limbs of the trees that lined the
road , leaving a swath of green leaves
to mark his progress , his second , the
doctor , and his friends riding inside ,
LINCOLN AND HIS ANTAGONIST
TOOK THEIR PLACES ,
applauding vociferously the firmness
of hand and direful execution that dis
played itself when a limb of unusual
size came whirling to the ground. Ar
riving at Alton , the two seconds , In
advance of the principals , crossed the
Mississippi River and selected the
ground ( which , Mr. Lincoln subse
quently remarked , was in sight of the
Illinois Penitentiary ) , and erected the
barrier. These things cccomplished.
the seconds returned to Alton. The
belligerents then , In separate skiffs ,
proceeded across the river.
Mr. Lincoln sat in the stern of the
boat , beside his second. As the stal
wart oarsman breasted the waves of
the Mississippi , Mr. Lincoln said that
his situation reminded him of a story.
He suggested that he thought he felt
like a Kentuckian he knew who vol
unteered in the war of 1812. In ac
cordance with the time-honored cus
tom of those days , his sweetheart em
broidered him a bullet pouch and belt ,
and proposed to the incipient hero
that she would work on the belt the
motto , "Victory or Death. " "Oh , no , "
replied the volunteer , "isn't that ray-
ther too strong ? S'pose you put 'Vic
tory or Be Crippled ? ' "
Arriving at the plr.ce selected for
the combat , the forms and ceremonies
in such cases being punctiliously in
sisted on by the doctor , Mr. Lincoln
and his antagonist took their assigned
places , with the earthwork between
them ; but before the word was given
for the duel absolutely to commence ,
what was apparent to the least ob
serving from the first , viz. , that , ac
cording to the arrangements , Mr. Lin
coln had the advantage , now that the
combatants-stood'face-to face , became
doubly apparent. Mr. Lincoln's an
tagonist had neither the stature nor
length of limb fairly to meet his foe ;
while Mr. Lincoln , with his long body
and wonderfully long arm , had noth
ing to do but reach across the barrier
and cut up his helpless antagonist at
his leisure , and he could do this with'
as little risk of personal danger to
himself as he did when he slaughtered
the unoffending tree limbs that lined
his way to the field of honor. The
farce of Lincoln's plan of duel now
became evident to all present.
As might have been expected , the
friends of the challenger promptly
protested , remonstrated against the
self-evident inequality of terms , and
demanded a parley. The doctor , the
oracleof the field , replied that the
terms were "most solemnly agreed
upon" by all the parties necessarily
interested , and that , according to the
"thirty-six articles of Galway , " they
could not be amended or altered with
out commencing the duel over again
from the very beginning , and , to reach
this point of beginning , the challenge
must first be withdrawn.
After much discussion , this prac
tice was adopted , and the way was
made , according to the thirty-six ar
ticles , for mutual explanations. There
upon , as might have been expected , all
differences were soon amicably set
tled. Out of "after discussions" some
of the parties connected with the duel
as friends or spectators edified the
community , through partisan Journals ,
with "sharp explanatory cards. " One
or two other "similar affairs" were
talked of , but they never came to a
head ; and as a consequence the whole
matter soon faded out of the public
mind ; and thus ended Mr. Lincoln's
first and only affair of honor. It was
MxLincoln's pleasure , long years
after , to confer a brigadier general's
commission upon his antagonist ( al
ready distinguished for his courage
and honorable wounds in the Mexican
war ) , who , in the bloody struggle in
Virginia , made a gallant stand against
Stonewall Jackson in the valley of the
Shenandoah. New York Ledger.
.Tames Parton's Prediction.
In 18G2 James Parton , the celebrat
ed biographical writer , made the fol
lowing prediction in regard to Abra
ham Lincoln : History will say of Mr.
Lincoln that no man of a more genial
temperament , a more kindly nature ,
eveJ-tenanied the White House ; that
he gave all his time , his thoughts , his
energies , to the discharge of duties of
unprecedented magnitude and urgency ;
that , hating no man , he steadfastly en
deavored to win the confidence and
love of all the loyal and patriotic , and
that , In spite of four chequered years
of such responsibility and anxiety as
has seldom fallen to the lot of man , he
bore away from the capitol the sunny
temper and blithe frankness of his
boyhood , returning to mingle with his
old neighbors as one with them in
heart and in manner , in retirement as
in power a happy specimen of the men
whom liberty and democracy train in
the log cabin and by the rudest hearth
to guide the counsels of the Republic
and influence the destinies of the pee
Either the saloon must go , or our
boys must continue to go to hell.
President Schurman , of Cornell Uni
versity , who has decided to' accept his
appointment as a member of the Phil
ippines commission , though at one
time , and perhaps still , opposed to ex
pansion , says that from what he has
recently learned he is convinced that
any other action than that which was
followed by the peace commissioners
at Paris in regard to the Philippine
islands would have precipitated a
great international war.

Chief Engineer W. T. Manning of
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad has
invented a new rail that experts say
has many points of interest to rail
road owners , the principal one being
its economical feature. It is well
known that rails weai rapidly on
curves and where these are short and
traffic heavy , the cost of renewal is
very large. Manning has evolved a
section , which , he asserts , will reduce
the cost 37 per cent per ton per year.
He adds materially to the life of the
rail by placing additional metal in the
head and on the side upon which the
wear comes. The new rail will be
given a thorough test on the Balti
more and Ohio Railroad , the receivers
having ordered 1,000 tons from the
Carnegie Steel Co. The Pittsburg

on the compromise measure , in which
he sought to reconcile the differences
between the sections. Its broad pat
riotism appealed to Mr. W. W. Cor
coran so strongly that he sent the
senator the sum mentioned the very
next day in a letter expressive of his
admiration for the man and tne speech.
Years afterward I saw the original of

as follows :

cheaper here than where I came from.
