Mr. alky re- fnsed to moot him. on tho ground ri.*A bo was not responsible for word* spoken in debate. Mr. Gravoa, of Kentucky, 1 Wobb’s friend, inquired whether ho took »njr exception to Webb personally, to which Cilloy ropliod, 11 Certainly not butthaUroooujd not and would not her rcoponeiblc for words spoken in debate. Grevoe reported tho result to Webb, who agreed to eonsidor the affair at an end. 'Bnbeoqnenily Mr. billey’a friends, including Mr. Benton,, ocnsuredifn no- measured langnngo Gilley’s ground of rufusing tho eballongo. Graves related to tho Horn Henry A, Wise, the proeent .Governor ot Virginia, what had ooeunod and tho final settlement of tho affair, when Wise told him that Ciiley's friends would oompel him to deny tho ground ol settlement, and urged him to get Cilloy’s signature to a letter recapitu lating what hod occurred, in a manner which ins calcnlatod to plsoe him in a very equivocal' position. Graves i hb connscl, and told Wsbb he Intended. Webb begged him to do nothing ot-the kind, as it was driving CillOy intoaoomor, Insisting that 1 ho (Webb) being satisfied and the tUtt- f, uolxsly hod a right lo or open it, and begged Graves not to heed Mr. Wise's odvioo, which oonld not loll, in ihe then-heated stale h( the public mind, to lead to dia* ostnas results. Bat Oravoe said': "No, I am advised to do this for tho protec tion ot my ayn honor, and I shall oom- pol him to sign this letter. It is my 'aflioirl am attending to, and not yonn,’> Wobb continued his remonstrances and his ontroatics to let the matter rest; but all in vain. Graves had been told by Wise that bis own honor required the 1 signature to tho letter, and ha deter mined to have it. Never was there giv en such thoughtless counsel to a high- minded and honorable man, and the coqieqacnees were just what Webb hid predicted. Cllley, who was a brave and welMikpoecd man, smarting undo the oensuro of Ma friends for having afanply done his duty in refusing to fight a Am) for words spoken in debatiy moot pcrmhptorily wjef usod' to sign 15, lottor tendered to him or to make any explanation whatever upon Hmsfivaly rejoicing, no doubt, at tho opportunity of proving that ho had not declined tho duel front personal fear. Thereupon Graves sent a challenge to Cnioy by Who. They fought with rifles, sod Gilley tell. Wobb from that time to tho present has never spoken to Wise, and has always held him .morally responsible for the ssd ro- suit,'as ho also did Graves and til who know tho psrtienlart ot tbe.aflklr. In tho Presidential oontoet of IBM Mr. Wise attempted to make Mr. Olay re- sponsihlo for the death of Cilloy, but Mr. Clay called forth tho stated eat from Qmjrps, which completely exonerated Mr. Clay, and in which he stated that, after tho matter had been finally sot- tlefltotho entire ’satlifkction of Gen. Wobb »od himself, Mr. Wise had In duced him to demand from Mr. Cilloy tlia letter which fed to tho duel, in di rect' opposition'to the entreaties of Webbj and further, that Mr. Clay know nothing of the matter until Mr. Cilloy hod refused to sign tho letter whloh Hr. Wiso had oonnsolod, and when tho question of voracity' bad thus been raised and a fight became inevitable.— Uarpa't WcMy, 18G& polioo cannot distinguish the bad onos, as in the United Slates and Europoau cities, but class thorn all as capable of anyorimo, * s * After tho visit ol tho Chicago mer ohants to Moxioo it was stated that all the country needed was Improved agri cultural machinery.
