On the 12th day of Juno, ,1SG3, 1 witnessed a duel between a Capt. Jones, commanding a federal scout, and Capt. Fry, commanding a rebel scout, in Green county, East Tennessee. These two men had been fighting each other for six months, with the fortunes ot battle in favor of one aud then the other. Their commands were camped on either side ot Lick Creek, a lare and sluggish stream, too deep to tord and too shal low for a ferry boat ; but there a bridge spanned the stream for tlieTcoriveiiieuce of the traveling public. Each ot them guarded this bridge, that communica tion should go neither north or south, as the railroad track had been broken up mouths before. After fighting each other for several months, and contesting the point as tq which should hojd the bridge, theysi.reed to fight a duel, the conqueror to hold flic bridge undisputed for the time being. Jones gave the challenge, and Fry accepted The terms were that they should ngnt Willi navy pistols at twenty yards apart, deliber- ately walking towards each oilier, and firing until the last chamber of their pistols was din-barged, un'ess one or the otlier toll liefore all the discharges were made. They chore their- seeonds. and agreed upon a rebel surgeon (a-? be was the only one in eillier commandl to attend them in case of danger. .Tones was certainly a fine-looking fellow, with light liair and blue eyes, five feet ten fjnclies iii.lieiglit, looking every inch the military chieftain.

I shall never forget that meeting, Jones, in bis military, ' boyish mood, as they shook hands, remarked that - A soldier braves death for a fanciful wreatbj When in glory's romantic career; ; '!, ;; Fry caught np the rest of ."the sen tence, and ended by saying-- -.sV, "'" Yet lie bends o'er the foe when in battle laid . low, .)

'Vntettj- "Vit ,: Nnpolmi IV. A special correspondent ot the Figaro , who lately made a visit to Cliiselhurst, gives the following details concerning the Prince Imperial : , . s Tlie Prince is of average height and well looking; his teeth are( extremely fine, aud his mouth like tliat ot the; Eni presss, while the remainder of his face resembles his father's. On the npper lip a small brown mustache is beggin oing to make its appearance! , His voice is full, sonorous, aud well fitted to com mand. To sum up,- the 1-ince has all the grace of bis age j he Is gay, imagin ative, and French. , .Showing me a small piece of furniture iu which ail his school exercises were placed,- be said : "I preserve and regard then with plea sure ; do you know why ? ' Because I am enchanted at not having to do them agaio." His daily labor is something extrtordinary for one of bis ago. liais ing at daybreak; he sets apart all the morning fur study.: His. professors are English, residing in "London lie is now ot age to be admitted to -Oxford, but is was jireferred that he should study at Chiselliurst the higher branches of education. After lunch the prince rides out; he has three saddle liorses, and among them Hems, the well known sorrel ijf the Emperor. Sometimes, in tine weather, lie walks out With' the Empress. Two or three times a-week lie goes to London to take ...lessons ; in fencing, which is his greatest amuse ment ; he also practices at home with Count Bassano. Without being attach ed to the British army, be occasionally takes part iu tlie drill of a batlcry: of artillery to which some ot bis Woolwich comrades belong ; it is a fete for them when he goes to Aldershot. . . If I stated that the Prince said nothing about l-'rance no one would believe me.
