IXTEAORDIJIARY 1>UBL Mr. Thomas Sheridan, in his life of Dean Swift, his recorded an account cf a very singular character, who lived in the town of Tipperary. The name of this gentleman was Mathew; after a long residence abroad he returned to Dublin at the latter end of Queen Anne's reign. At that time parly spirit ran high, bat raged nowhere with such violence as in that city, insomuch that duels were every dav fought there on that score. There happened to be at that time two gentlemen in London, who valued them selves highly on their skill in fencing ; the name of one was Pack, the other Creed?the former a major, the latter a captain in the army. Hearing of these daily exploits in Dub lin, they resolved, like two knights-er rant, to go over in quest of adventures Upon inquiry he found that Mr. Mathew had the character of being one of the finest swordsmen in Europe. Pack rejoiced to find an antagonist worthy of him; and meeting him as he was carried along the street in his chair, jostled the fore-chairman. Of this Mathew took no notice, sup posing it to be accidental. But Pack af terwards boasted of it in the public ccfiee house, sayiug that he had purposely of fered this insult to that gentleman, who had not the spirit to resent it. There happened to be present a particular Iriend of Mr. Mathew, of the name of Macnimara, a mau of good courage, and reputed the best fencer in Ireland. lie immediately took up the quarrel, for he was sure Mr. Mathew did not sup pose the affront intended, otherwise he would have chastised him on the spot; and if the major would let him know where he was to be found he should he waited upon immediately after his friend's return, who was to din* tha day a little way out of town. The aipjor said he would be at the tavern over the way, where he and his companion would await their commands Immediately on bis arrival Mathew being made acquainted wiih what had parsed, went from the coffee-house to the tavern, accompanied by Macna mara. Being shown into the room wh^re the gentlemen were, Mathew and Pack drew their swords; but Macaam*ra stopped them by saying he had something to pro pose. lie said in cases of this nature he never could to be a cool spectator. " So, sir,'1 addressing himself to Creed, " if you please, I shall have the honor of entertaining you in the same man ner." Creed, who desired no better sport, made no other reply than that of in stantly drawing hi* sword ; to work the four cha f.pions fell, with the same com posure as if it were only a fencing match with foils. The conflict was of some duration, and was maintained with great obstinacy by the two officers, notwithstanding the great effusion of blood from the many wounds they bsd received. At length, quite exhausted, they both fell, and yielded the victory to the' supe rior skill of their antagonists. Upon this occasion Mathew gave a re markable proof of the i?eriect composure of his mind during the action. Creed had fallen firtt, upon which Pack exclaimed : 44 Ah, poor Creed ! are you gone?" 44 Yes," said Mathew very composedly, 44 and you shall pack after him,' at the same time making a nome-thrust quite through his body, which threw him to the ground. This was the more remark able, as he was nevtir in his life eithtr before or after, known to have aimed at a pun. The number of wounds received by the vanquished parties was very great; and, what seems almost miraculous, their opponents were untouched. The surgeons, seeing the desperate state of their patients, could not suffer them tc be removed out of the room where they fought, but had beds immediately con veyed into it, on which they lay many hours in a state of insensibility. When they came U> themselves, and saw where they were, Pack, in a feeble voioe, said to his companion: 4 Creed, I think we are conquerors, for we have kept the field of battle." For a long time they were despaired of; but to the astonishment of every one they both recovered. When they were able to see company, Mathew and his friend visited them daily, and a close intimacy afterwards ensued, as they found them to be men of probity, and of the best dispositions, except in this Quixotic idea of duelling, whereof they were now perfectly cured. A Rrssiuf Hkkoink.?The following is related in a letter from Kamiesh, in the Crimea: 44For some days past nothing has been talked of but the arrest of a young Rus sian woman. She had been remarked several times before, as her favorite walk appeared to be in the trenches. The ru mor circulated for some time, and the General at last was informed of the fact, lie ordered a stricter watch to be kept as be thought it could be only a spy disguised in woman's attire. At 6 o'clock on the morning of the 28th the same woman presented herself in front of our mew while.they were at work. She was ot tall and majestic stature, and seemed to examine the works with much atten tion. Some one perceived that she held a roll of paper half open, in which prob ably she noted all the observations she could collect. At the sight of our soldier! and officers she quickened her pace and entered a sort of ratine which is at the extremity of the Frenah trenches. As soon as she reached that spot sb< began to ran, bat the commandant sent I two Zouaves in pursuit and they sooi THE WEEKLY STAR. f9?C*ta, urr aeiably n A?r*mmm. 0&- Sinflo cop<ea (la wrappers) cm he pUMll at the counter, 1?jMiy after *e 1mm of 'J* Porrvarrtaa who act n? i|?ti wfl be aBewnf a conuaiKiwrt of twenty per cm. overtook her. Tiro hours after she ?u conducted to General Canrobert. 13er examination was not long: she constant ly replied that it was for the good of her country, and to avenge the death of her husband, Banmoff killed at the Alma, that ?he acted thus, and, moreover, that she felt no regret. She was then searched. The searchers found in one of her pock ets a paper book, containing several de tails on the state of our batteries, the number of men employed, the number of guns in our batteries, Ac.; and in another pocket a double-barrelled pistol, and a letter addressed to Prince Menchikoff. After the visit, she was shut up inanap partraent of the General's headquarters, under the guard of two soldiers, until such time as she can be sent to Malta." LO\E OF *\TTOX. How many are there to whom the lus tre of the rising and setting sun, the sparkling concave of the midnight sky, the midnight forest tossing and roaring tothesk\, or warbling with all the melo dies of a summer evening; the sweet inter change of hill and dale, shade and sunsh shine, grove, lawn and water, which an extensive landscape offer to the view; the scenery of the ocean, so lovely, so majes tic, and so tremendous; and the many pleasing varieties of the animal and vegetable kingdom?could never aflord so much real satisfaction as the steam and noise of a ballroom, the insipid fil dling of the opera, or the vexation and wranglings of a card-table! But some minds there are of a different make, wcto even in the early part of life, receive from the contemplation of nature a spe cies ol delight which tiiey would hardly exchange for any other; and who, as avarice and ambition ari not the infirmi ties of that period, would with equal sincerity and rapture, eidaim: *? I tare not Fortune, what you m?* deny: You cannot rob me of tree natu'e's grace; You cannot chut the window* the ?ky. Through which Aurora -iiows ferishteuiog faee ; Von cannot her my co- ht*nt fe*t to trace The woods and law ..s by livinc stream* at een." To a mind thus disposed, no part of crea tion is indifferent. In the crowded city and howling wilderness, in thecultiva^d province and solitary isle, in the tlowery lawn and craggy mountain, in the mar iner cf the nvulet and uproar of the occan; in the radiance of summer and gloom of winter, in the thunder of heaven and the whisper of the breeze, he still finds something to rouse or to soothe his imagination, to draw forth his affections, or to employ his understanding. This happy sensibility to the beauties of nature should be cherished in young persons. It engages them to contemplate the Creator in his wonderful works; it purifies and harmonizes the soul, and prepares il for moral and intellectual discipline; it supplies a never-failing scource of amuse ment: it contributes even to bodily health; and, as a strict analogy abuse between material and moral beauty, it leads the heart by an easy transition from the one to the other, and thus recommends virtue for its trausemdant loveliness, and makes vice appear the object of contempt and abomination. An intimate acquaintance with the best descriptive poets?Spenser, Milton, and Thompson, but above all with the divine Georgic?joined to some practice in art of drawing, will promote this amiable sensibility in early years; for then the lace of nature has novelty superadded to its other charms, passions are not pre-engaged, the heart is tree from care, and the imagination warm and romantic. A " Bluff" Transaction.?A fellow was indicted in the old Ninth District {Alabama) when Tom G 1 was Soli tor, for gambling, to wit: playing "short cards,", a* a certain locality known as Fivg Level. Col. N defended him and contended before the jury, that though the >tate's evidence 44 tended" to show that his client, with a bottle of liquor in his pocket, accompanied the crowd who, it was shown, d>d actually play, yet it never did with absolute oer tainty locate him as one of the players. Said he by way of peroration : 44 Gentlemen of the jury : the witness have told you that Peter Wryatt was thar, and a'playin'; for he noticed ku hand, and it was a full of <juttns. 44 llan y Snow was thar, and ke was a-playin'; fbr he hilt two little pari 44 iUiam Upson was thar, and ke played, 'cause witness noticed in partic ular, that he had nothing but an ace! 44 Bill Connor was thar, and he played, gentlemen, for he had the bully hand? fjur high-heeled Jacks! 44 But, gentlemen, when I come to ask him about Abraham Pitkin, my client's hand, what did he say, gentlemen? Why, nothifc', gentlemen, exoept that if An hilt any hand, he disr<.membered what was in it. And now, gentlemen of the jury, because my client was seen goin' down to Frog Level, with a bottle of liquor in his pocket, and the witness can't remember as he hilt any hand at all, when bully hands was out, and him the best player in the crowd?is that?u that?I say, gentlemen of the jury, ?e that any "reason that my client was guilty of the crime of gambolling ?'* It is almost needless to say that the jury saw the non-sequttur and aoquitted the defendant. Soap Mads from Locusts.?The sev enteen year locusts, while in an under ground, grub state, are said to be a fa vorite food of various species of animals. Immense numbers are destroyed by the hog before they emerge from the ground; they are also, when in their perfeet state, eagerly devoured by chiokens, squirrels, and many of the larger birds. Tfte Indians likewise consider them a delicate food when fried, and in New Jersey they have been turned to a profi table account in making soap.
