In 1836- '37 party spirit ran, very bigh in Coa- grass, and each party had it* reputed 1 hotspurs, game cocks, biilliet or fire estert. Mr. Wise, Mr. Peyton; Mr. Jeuiler, Mr. Bynum Dr. Duncan of Ohio, and^.Mr. Hannegan, of llliaois, were the * reprcsetitativ* men of thi* class.

Indulg ing in slang phrases and indiscriminate abuse.

Jenirer was Ihp r.evcrsef of Bynnm, He was a dclicataly f’rmed, but' baud- some, intellectual lunking man, with a poli.shed air nnd courtly manners, an old Maryland colonial family, always elegantly dresned. He was, io fact, n beau and a Indiet' mno; W:>* as ultr.i politician' of the Olay school; often made severe but not rude remarks, and was reputed to be always ready with his hnir-trigjcrs. Tho famous pistol usrd in the fatal duel between Commndares Decatur and Barron was io his keeping. Tiicse two gentlemen bad soferal "spats” ia dobuto, and it had come tu he a settled opidioo that toon>!r or later they must have a meeting, and that ooe or both would fall. Ooe dfiy tbay had'U sharp altercatian, and when thtf riuifse met''next morning both their chairs were vacant.
