Our readers are possibly familiar with

there has been a duel imminent between
Mr. J.'J- Dargan, ODe of the editors of the

Earle, a lawyer, both pa.Ues from the lit,

Mr Dargan as a d d liar. This Intel li-
gence.was communicaUd to Mr. D. ' and he
immediately approached Mr. E. on the
subject and the result was a demand of
"that satisfaction due one gentleman to
another." AH the preliminaries were ar
ranged and the place of meeting was the
noted duelling grounds of 'Sand Bar
Ferry," near Augusta, Ga. The author
ities at Sum.er got wind of what was go-

asked the officer to accompany him to his
house after his arrest, in order that he
might see his wife, who was there quite
sick. The officer oomnlied and verv fooU
ishly waited at the door for his prisoner,
while he went into the house. Mr. Earle
made his escape from the rear of his
dwelling, where he Dad in waiting a horse
and buggy, together with his 1 second, a
Mr. BlandeDg. The two drove over to
Wedgefield, a station on the W-, C. & A.
R. R.. a distance of ten miles, I wher
they boarded a' train for Columbia and
thence to Augusta, thereby thwarting
comP1etc,y the BtDg arm of .J'
Vir. Darga took the train that night for
Charleston, via Florence, where hs was
joined by his second, Gen. Richardson.
The two proceeded to Augusta and justas
they crossed the Savannah river on the cars
and were safely on the Georgia side, a
Lieutenant of the Augusta police walked
upjand, from the description of a telegram
he had in his possession from the Intend
ant of Sumter, together with an order for
their arrest, he claimed his prisoners.
They then gave bond, telegraphed
their interruption to the other parties and
arranged to meet in this State, somewhere
near Charlotte. Mr. Eat le and his aec( n.5
again were succesbful in evading the
cmcers of the law and salely reached the

Eargan and his friend, however; as Mr.
