RKMINJ80ENCES OF A MEM0R
The celebrated affair of the Leopatd and
the Chesapeake, tho latter coaimanded by
Commodore .James Harrou, resulted in
Barron's trial and sentence by the court
martial, in the proceedings relative to
which, it is said, Commodore Decatur took
an active part, am! a duel was filially the

Elliott conferred together, und the former, !
who had behaved fairly und equitably
throughout, was apiioiiited to measure the 1
ground. He marked a line iu the sod
with his foot, aud placing hia toe to it, I

DecatUf walked to the north, nearest the
water, where he stood a few inches lower
than Barron. Both threw off their coats

"Gentlemen," said Bainbridge, raising
his voice, 'T shall give tho word quickly

"None," said Bainbridge, and lie re

tagonists looked into each other's eyes.

both. "I hope, air," said Barron, "that

charged. There were two pulls, of smoke,
and h. an instant Barron was down groan
ing. Decatur straightened up a moment,
pinched bis lips, diopped his pistol, and
the color went nut of his face. Ho drew
bis light hand to his side. Then he fell
to the ground speechless.
The seconds of both were beside them
instantly. Decatur was raised by his
fiiejls aild moved to higher ground, near

Barron looked up to them all and said :
"Everything has-been conducted in the
niosi honorable manner. 1 aui mortally

Next day the little old !7at: uml I:it Hi-
gencer came out with a lead, d editorial
head ssying that itwuUldbe "affect iti.in"
to be silent upon the fact that ihu dm 1
bad occurred, and that the co uLatants
were mortally wounded. In a "Postscript"
it related that Decatur was dead, and ad
ded in the crudu' apostiophe of tb it period
' Mourn Cobtmbia I for one of thy bright
est stars Ja' set ?" Three days afterwards
! the imiif was robbed three milt from
, :,..unnrp ,i. ,Wiv ,-A , ,
slrot dead, and the mail bags picked over
id the bushes near by. All ibis time
while Decatur's body was going from his
result nee, close by the White House, to
"Kalorama," an estute on a hill overlook
ing Georgetown and. while Bail uu lay in
the city, writhing in pain and listening to
tlm funeral drums, in Congress, John
Randolph offered consolatory resolutions,
but the were objected to. The lone of
the .pecan,. cummeuted. ou tlie dueJ, .-wan-respectful
both lo the living and the dead
antagonists, bnt sternly denunciatory of
"the code-" as our newspapers now a days
could be. Barron suffered dreadfully for
:nany months, byt recovered ni last, and
lived to 1851, surviving, 1 think Decatttrs
childless widow, who was represented m
184(3 to be alive iu the CeorgetoWu Cath
olic College, "in ill health aud poverty,
finding in the consolation of religion alone
alleviation of her sorrows," out but hope
ful of securing something from Congress.
Barron weut to sea again, and had charge
of several vessels, but the shadow of the
duel lay across his life. People forget the
apology for it in the catastrophe of it. aV
new generation of boys r.iso up who read
of Decatur's valor, and learned to regard
Barron as his assassin. Tin poor living
violiiu could not explain against a dead
man. He asked lor a court martial oo
Decatur's charge against hiiu, 'arid was
exonerated with meagre compliments.

Church, Philadelphia, iu a venerable ami
spacious graveyard, under an eagle-capped
monument. His portrait is in I ieo.getown
College. His rmme is conferred oq ma,t.y
towns and couutains iu this country
What he lived for he ha obtained -elory
in the eyes of his countrymen. Barron
obtained "satisfaction" little more. Yet
I tljink the latter was throughout the ag-
