Tlio Clinton nnd Bwartwout duo! was n political ono, and, occurring iu was alino.Ht tiuiulttincoua with tlio Hamilton and H A B HiMJkcr affair. It lias lioen alroiulj- rc-ferred :o by a. correspondent of Evening Post, jut wo add some of tho details. JJnWitt Jlmtou lind recc-iitlj- como to this city. Ko was then considered a vouug man of great had token a high position in Uio federal party, of which Hamilton was all acknowledged leader. The family was fritmlly to Burr, nnd lipuce Clinton oc- casionally came into unpleasant proiiuiity with John Swattwoiit, whose Wood was much bolter than that of Ilutdi generally. Tho politicians of that day asserted Iho largest liberty of speech, and, on one occa- sion of difficulty, Clinton puljliclv applied to Swartwout Iho terms "liar, Wundrel and villiau." As n matter of course a challc-iige followed. They met i.t one of the seconds (Colonel Smith has given tho following report of the affair "The gentlemen look their stations and were each presented with a pistol, and by order each faced to (he right and fired, Imt lu an iiicffoctiml manner. At tho request of Mr. Kilier (Clinton's sccondj I asked Mr. Swartwoul, 'Are yon He replied, 'I am The pistols were then ex- changed and reloaded, and tlio gentlemon re. Slimed thoir positions. When tho word was given encb again faced to the right and fired but with no more effect than at first. At tbo request of Mr. Hiker I again asked Mr fewnrtwout, 'Aro you and lie answered strongly in tho negative. A third shot was then exchanged without injury. At Inker's renewed request I again put tbo question: 'Are you aud Mr. Swait Wout replied: 'I am not; neither shall I be until that apology which I have demanded is made. Until tben we must proceed.' I then presented a paper to Jlr. Hiker containing tho apology in order lo obtain Mr. Clinton's signature, observing to him that wo could not spend our time in conversation, and that this paper must ho signed or we must proceed. Jlr. Clinton declared that ho 'would not sign any paper on tbe subject- that ho had no animosity against Mr. Swnrtwoul.nud would willingly shako hands and agree to meet him witb former friend ship.' Mr. Kwartwout insisted on a fourth fire, and Clinton's ball struck him in Iho leg, livo inches bolow the knee. Ho stood ready aud collected, and refused any propo- silion short of the apology. The surgeon kneeled by his side aud extracted tho ball and the fifth fire look place. Mr. Swart- wout was again struck in tho 'same leg, nearer the aulclo, but he still stood at his post. Again, at tbo request of Mr. Hiker, I repeated the question: 'Are you Ho still am not; proceed.' Clic. ton then left tho station, declining further combat aud declared he would fight no more. Swartwout was surprised at this ro- aud exclaimed to me, 'What shall I do, my I answered, 'Ho declines making an apology and refuses to fight__ there is nothing loft for you now but to bavo your wounds dressed.' This was done, and the. gentlemen returned to tbe New York Evening Post. THE DECLINE AND .FALL OF FENCES With Iho advent of tho lawn mower those hideous necessities of a ruder civilization, picket fences, and indeed dooryard fences of every kind, except tlio very simplest and most inconspicuous, arc gradually disappear- ing. It is a good movement in tho interests both beauty nnd economy. What a waste of lumber and paint, unless one do- sires to conceal a slovenly doory.ird from public view, to stretch a feuco before liis lioiiso !If absolutely nccessarv for protec- tion from stray cnttlo should bo out of tbo question in any well kept street or the fenco bo just as open and uuobstructive as possible. A low iron fence, indeed, of handsome pattern, mount- ed upon a well faced stone curb, is a good thing, siuce it docs not obstruct tho view mid harmonizes very well with tasteful sur- rouudings. But if your old wooden feuco is getting shaky aud the expense of a new ono in these anrd times gives opportunity for reflection, in tho first place remove tho old feuco, trim the walks, remove the sprawling nnd chok- ing rubbish of trees nnd shrubbery which a fence is apt to harbor, and tben see bow you like it for a few dnys. After that, if you find tbo cattle have made no ravage-, and even Iho boys respect your confi- dence, all temptation to their jumping and climbing propensities being removed, begin carefully to study what possible combina- tion of pine lumbar and paint can beany ad- dition to the beauty of your lawn nnd flow- ers. You will not desire anything so pecu- liarly aggravating as n picket fenco, nor any mnssivo bulwark which seems to snv, "All persons arc hereby forbidden to ioo'k into these nurmiy fussy and preten- tious device of carpentry to bo painted glaring white nnd put tho tender grass and modest flowers ciitircly out of countenance. By tbo time you have studied your now fenco suflicicntly it will grow beauti- fully less in your esteem, and snve a ham1- somo consideration to your purse. But if you hnvo recently invested heavily in a now fence, of courso you mustrcvongc yourself by mnintniuing it and defending it agniuBt all secret convictions, to get your moncv'a worth and justify tho outlay. A particuir.r absurdity is tbo pnrtitiou-fonco or imper- vious hedge which often separates neighbor- ing grounds. If your neighbor bo slovenly and his surroundings offensive, tbcro is an excuse for shutting off tbo view, but, if yen both hnvo beautiful nnd well-kept grounds, why not double tbo enjoyment of them and oven more than double it, by tho ampler prospect and breadth of view? It is not so easy to givo np old notions, however defenceless, but wo in onr nioro cultivated towns and villages, tho old wooden fences will not bo renewed in anything llkfl their former bulk and pro- t-inliousncss. They either will give way to tbo lightest, simplest nnd opcncst forms which may he necessary for protection, or to Iho simplest curbstone or low hedgo for demarcation, or, which in very many cases is about as well, to no fonco at nil. It hns been tried nt Williamstown, tho college fences and most of those connected with private residences having been removed, to the manifest improvement and onhnnocd beauty of tbo village. Loivg-mcnilow is try; ing the experiment, the fences having ro contly disappeared from before some of her handsomest residences with surprisingly plcnsimt results.
