ALTON DAILY TELEGRAM WEDNESDAY EVK., '« tonnudpafIon From the Itaxor. "The early gold-stokers In California conferred a benefit upon tho country •- unconseiotiHly, itistrno,—which 1 huvo navcr seen mentioned, but for which the ycnriger generation can hardly be grateful enough." The speaker was one of the old forty- niners; ho wits speaking of the nntunil dinner of the Associated Pioneers of California, which he had attended. "When 1 was a young man," he continued, "no one in any part of the ; United States with which I was acquainted was permitted to wear a beard. There WHS an unwritten law against it, which was more strictly obeyed than the statutes against murder or robbery. A man with a full, flowing board such as may bo seen anywhere in a walk of live minutes, would have been followed and hooted at by n crowd of boys in a New England town; while a mustache was an open confcs- nlon that the wearer was a rowdy anil a social outlaw. The wearer would not have been admitted to membership In nriy church, nor—unless he was a military officer — received into any respectable circle. Side whiskers could bo worn, ore-Inn whiskers; but the lines were drawn against the complete thing or 'the shaded upper lip by a public opinion so strong that it seemed Immutable. . "Thegold excitement broke out, and in almost every town nnd village there were some who caught the fever and started for the land of promise. We had a hard time of it; the fortunate fellows just as hard a time as the unfortunate, except for the courage that success brings. There was no leisure, and little inducement for self-adornment In the absence of women. We ' got careless about observing the rules of our old civilized life, and one of the first evidences of this was that one after another we stopped shaving. It took too much time, and our razors got dull, or our bits of looking-glass lost or broken; and soon every mining- camp on the coast was filled with full- boarded men. "Early in: the fifties the men who had- left wives and children or sweethearts at home, and who had rake., together a few thousand dollars, began to return; some to bring their families ' back and others to pay off the mortgages on their farms and remain. We had been free from tho trammels of th« old civilization long enough to be indifferent to some of its arbitrary rules; and then we were conceited enough to think thpt our adventures had given us the right to bo recognized as heroes, nnd didn't mind wearing a sort of distinguishing badge. So a large number of ,us returned to our old homes with much tho same appearance that we hail in the mines. "We 'were decidedly a picturesque lot, I suppose, aiul wherever we wont were immediately recognized as returned gold-diggers, and received the re- suoct among our old neighbors that our suppositions wealth—alns! only 1 suppositions in ninny cases — commanded. In no very long time there were few towns in which there wore not several returned Californians; nnd, as, the novelty of full beards began to -wear off, tho real Improvement which "beards made in some men was scon. Hugc-jiiw'od, 'long-lipped men came back absolutely handsome. Then tho doctors entered tho field—young men with weak lungs and bronchial troubles seemed to bo cured. At first the climate of California and tho exposure of camp life obtained the credit; but after a winter lit homo it was believed that the .-protection givuu by the beard should share tho credit,; ami soon many Of tho physicians, especially in Now England, advised thuirpatients tocuaso shaving. Thu innovation now made its Way rapidly. 'Uy tho advice of tho - doctor'woa as satisfactory mi answer to all comments as it is in tlio same part of the country when one is caught taking his 'bitters' before .(inner. "It was some years, however, before the prejudice of generations became si weakened that preachers could woa. boards without acruru common t on tin i .partof' aomo of tho members of theii Congregations, if not secession fron their folds to those of shaven shop- herds. It is a tradition that, the late Prof. 8town adopted a shrewd tlovic to rid himself of the hated razor. H< was delivering an address, HO the storj gops, on slavery, and us ho became ini- ' passioned with the subject ho exclaimed: 'This curse must and will bi Wiped out; tho day of freedom for all men In our land is coming, ami the razor shall not touch my face until it dawns." He was probably one of the first Congregational ministers to woar hair on his lip. "When it became allowable for any Who chose to woar a full board entire emancipation followed easily enough, and men bogan to trim their'boards to ^lllt themoolves, until before long they could woar mustaches alone without causing remark. We old forty-uinors created thin revolution—wo wlio came 4 homo; and in tlio advantage to health, " to say nothing of Uio improvement of tlio moral tone of tho community which Is caused by thi) overthrow of* ovurv Bonseloss 1 think that iii .this wo did moro good than did the cold wo brought buck homo *\'ew fork -Trihittu: A DUEL WITH 8YMMES. In The Southern Ih'twwc for February It nn Interesting article on John Cletog Symmes, tho originator of, the theory of a hollow,'habitable world. It contains many IneldenU of early life In tho west, and describes a.dtiel fought by Symmes. Tho writer says: An older brother of Peyton Symtncs was Capt. John Cleres Svmmes, tho author of the "Theory of "Concentric Spheres and Polar Voids." He was born In Su»8ex County; New Jersey, Nov. 3, J870, and received a good common English education, which in after life he greatly improved, through his in- tntiahlo desire for knowledge. Ho cultivated particularly mathematics and tho natural sciences, and at an early ago studied out the curious theory through which he has become so widely, known. He entered tho army in 1802, and in 1812 received his commission its captain. Ho served in that capacity during the war, and until tho disbanding of tho army In 1816. While ho was stationed at Fort Adams ho fought a duel with Lieut. Mai-shall, an interest/ Ing account of which is given in "Pioneer Biographies," by MeBrido. Symmes and Marshall disagreed about the hitter's pay. Syminos thought it incumbent upon himself to resent Marshall's remarks, and finally challenged him. In the encounter Marshall received a ball in his thigh, from the effects of which he suffered through life, and Symmes a wound in his left wrist, the use of which he never fully recovered. In the family papers in a letter to Symmes from his'brothor Daniel, on hearing of this duel. Part of it is worth giving: "I regretted your affair of honor with Llnut Mnrshall, but wns irratillrd that rou acquitted yourself as n gentleman ami nn ofllcor, and that your conduct on that occasion was spoken of In high tcmiD of upprohnMon by all the ttnuUoincn of our acquaintance, aa well as your brother oulcern. "It Is much to ho regretted that tho evil on* torn of duelling has become to prevalent and fashlonablo In tho American army, that 11 man, when once Insulted by u person (no matter of whntetmrncterorhow tired of life), a ohulloniro must piifln, nnd tho weapons of death bo exercised. To prevent this savage and calamitous practice, Frederick thu Oreat of Prussia, who had lost some or his best ami bravest oUloors In this way, Issued nn edict that If any challenge pasBod In bis army, the parties should flght until one was dead, ami immediately afterward the survivor should bo shot as a pub- lie offender, which edict was carried into7>io- cutlpu, fo the astonishment of the whole army —It had the derlred effect. No man for a moment ever doubted the couraire of the great and Justly celebrated Julius Ctcaar, and murk his conduct when challenged to single combat by Mark Antony, who was his equal, and stuod high on tho lists of fame. Ho coolly replied that, "If Antony It tired of life, lot him lean Into tbo sea or 1umn down tho Tarpelan rock." * Peyton sent Capt Symmes some lines as his opinion on dueling. Wo do not know that he was the author, but ho evidently admired the sentiment, and, as they are after the order of his poems, it is well enough to give them us an example sf his style.
