It seems that on the late trip of the steamer North Star from New Orleans to this place, two of the passengers, Colonel Charlfs from Philadelphia, and Major Hiegler, of Boston, who had been south on an electioneering tour and were old friends, having both served in the European armies, got into a very warm discussion, the one de fending Democracy and the other Republican ism, wbioh resulted in offensive language of a personal character against Col. Burgthal In the presence of so many passengers the Colonel felt it incumbent on him to demand a retraction of the insulting matter, which be ing denied, a challenge and acceptance to fight were soon settled upon. Two Hungarian officers named 8. Sialey and T Shultex, late ly in the service of Walker at Nicaragua, who were passengers on the boat, volunteered as seconds. Pistols and fifteen pace* were the terms proposed, but strati^e to s?y. the ?e?ond8. tho master of the boat, and all the passengerr, including many ladies, opposed the proposition, and contended that the fight should to had with swords The Hungarians offered their sabres, and the next day. on reaching Memphis, the parties landed, aud. procuring the attendance of a I>r Hill, also a passenger on the boat, proceeded to some grounds adjoining the city, accompanied by many of the lady an i gentlemen passengers. The duel was then fought with great tierce ness, and resulted in the defeat of Mnj Reig ler. who, by the superior skill of hi? adver sary, received two terrible cuts, the one on his cheek and the other on hii chin, causing him to drop on the field Returning to the boat, the wounds of the Major were drofscd. a fid a reconciliation of the parties was affected ?

An eceentric but boi! amusing era lee *w some time ago made by a steam tow boat In tbe waters of Southampton harbor. Kngland, the particulars of which are related by a tor', respondent who was an eye-witness of the wlioie affair. It seems that the Belmont, a regular steam tug, had taken in tow tbe ahip Walter Hood, bound from Southampton to Australia On reeching the lower bay, the ?ails were ret on board the ahip, and at tLe ?m? time tho tew boat waa cast off with the Intention of retorniog to Southampton for an other vessel, tut by some accident the shin ran into the steamer, a violent craeh followed, aud in the confusion all hands. including the captain and the cook of the latter, jumped on board the tailing vessel, leaving their boat in charge of a dog and two cata? a strange crew for a steam-going craft. But ber a team waa up, and after a succession of plULginga and er*hi?g -he succeeded In shaking herself clear of the ship, and the next moment waa i*en "going it alone," starting off at a ter rifi ;peed, and in anything but tbe right di rection for her For a few momenta ber aap tain and crew, engineer and all. were struck with dismay. The long tiller ot the rudder w&s seen dashing to and fro, while the fierce barking of the dog, who evidently knew little of navigation or steering, rendered the seene at once absurd and terrific ?ludieroua and Lrvshtful. Meanwhile, tbe captain of the steamer, having mcoveied hie presence of niiud and oompoaure, obtained a small boa*, and with hia man started io pursuit of his ab ounded craft; but ere he waa well underway, she bad altered her course, and, from tome cause or other, came round and set out for the point from whenoe she had started, thue mnk - iu? or describing a complete circle. Tho men bent lustily to their oars, but the cbajed fcteainer dodged, shied and circulated abeut in the moat erratic manner, tbe dog keeping up an incessant barking and howling, aa th>>ugh seeking in this manner to head her off and bring her to reason Soon ehe shot off in an opposite direction, and now made directly far a light-ship in the outer harbor liere tao men ua the look-out descried her position, ar.d, having manned their boat, also started in pursuit. 1 he raoe now became truly excit ing, tbe course of the steam tug becoming more and more uncertain at the helm shifted to and fro at tho sport of the wavea of the channel By this time, however, ehe had nearly run her race, her steam waa getting 1 >w, and at length her apeed giadually dimin ished, her paddles stopped, and ehe ultimate ly gave in from sheer exhaustion. The crew iroui tho light-ahip waa the firet to board her, own crew coming up about twenty miuuies alter. She was at length got into working ? ?rder, and brcaght safely into Southampton dock, where she was sentenced to undergo complete repairs after her frolic. It it said that the crew were fully justified in leaving her a? they did, ehe being in imminent peril of going down Compromise ?Tbe following occurred in California in its palmy days, when alcad?s, elected by the miners ot the district, dispensed e^ual aud exact justice to all. An individual by tho name of Green had borrowed some forty dollars of another of tho soubriquet of ?hortea Now Shortez could not obtain the money, though Green had struck a leal, and waa known to have dust. Green was a large, powerful uian, but no grit, andihortex offered to fight bim for tbe money, but Green backed water. Well, the claim was brought before the al calde, on a cold, rainy, dismal evening, and a? there was considerable taik about it, the boys gathered in to see ibe fun?rather a motley appealing crowd, with long bearda and hair, patched pants, rimless hats, toe less bcote, Ae The Hon. Judge was unwell, but ??.*. op in his bunk with a red bandana tied rounl Lis head Tbe case waa clearly proven Tlie alcalde decided that Green must pay, and If he would not. a committee of three were to search him or his cabin and get the money and also the ouurt coats Upon this Shortes deliberately rose and said, " Tour honor. I will forgive him the debt, and pay the oosts besides, it he will only give me a fight, to that I can whale him.'' Green, when ha heard this squared himself, thinking that the court-room would be aacred; but Saortex pltcbcd in at on oe and e line bed Severed, myself included, sprang in to sepa rate them, when, in deep tones and waving tbe bandana, the judge exclaimed. "Gentle men, gentlemen, stand baok ! If the parties wish to effect a oompromise, don't interfere." And we stood back. Saw Green whipped m a few scconda. and after that obliged to pay the fund? ?Cor Porter's Spirit. The Poet I?ox?rxLLow ?Longfellow pre sent* the fine spectacle of a man of moet dell catc poetic gift, and rich and varied culture, devoting himself to topics that go straight to the common heart, and handling them with a childlike simplicity, which, in conjunction willi so much delicacy, is almost without a parallel in the history of literature. For him no audicnce is too refined ; none too unculti vated. The "Psalm of Life" is as simple as Dr. Watts, as graceful as Campbell; and the same may be said of *4 Evangeline." We have in Longfellow a finished master of "the accomplishment of verse, who uses his gift as plumes to wiug the benificent shaft of eorig U the highest and humblest heart alike, a:<l not to speed a mystical chant out of sight into cloudi&ud Nor is this all With Longfellow to descend is not to grovel; his gift cleanses common things as it touches them , if he walks the dear old earth with tbe rest of us, tne shining wings of hie genius do not trail on the ground ; if he speaks a simple language, he utters what is both holy and high, so that our hearts burn within us by the wuy as he talks. What mourning hearts have been soothed? what trembling nature's strengthened?what hesitating spirits charged with holy covrage for the conflict of duty, by his sweet potent words !
