It will be recollected that after the report o f the ^ueer Legulalion .—The subject of -the rexnoVal oftfie scat o f government o f Maine from Portland, has been fuUy discussed during the late session of the legislature of that state. Rvery to-wn in the interior of the stale, webelieve, vas proposed, and its advantages, positive and relative, amply deba- -tsd. The result of all the talking was the passage of a lew through the House of Represjontafives, providing that the legislature shall hold its sessions in F'crlldnd until the:year 1832, and then be per- nillnently fixed at Augusta, This Jatv was sent to the achate. -Ipibofoean time, a r(Stlvt -eas intro- duced and passed in the senate, desighadug Hal- folcel as the place of the next meeting of the legis­ lature. Two daysafterwstds, (the 22nd'ult.) this ■fmlvt passed the house : and on the following day, (23d):tbe Mlffrom the honsc passed the senate.— Which prevailslhc law orthe rfesolvel 'lYhichev- cr is; paramount, it is amode of legislation unknown to onr practice,, to Introduce and pass a resolution directlj' adveme to a bill already pending ; and es­ pecially to pass both bill oud resolve at ihe same session, involving, as they do, a palpable contradic­ tion. The legislature of Maine adjourned on the 2<5th ult. after a session of 53 days, during which 83 acts and M resolves were patsed. Mbari^ Argios.

That the practices o f entombing in .such splendid caves ■!vas •general in Egypt no one doubts ; but the cham­ bers themselves have neither receptacles for bo­ dies, nor any thifig iiidiGative of their being applied t() such a purpose.

They t^pear to have been abandoned before they were completely finished -, but although the en­ trance to many of tbe.apartncnfs is still blocked up by rubbish, enough may be sec'h to justify th'e infer­ ence o f these catacombs having been a subterane- .flUs temple dcvojied to soihe worship ebaraeferised by mysterious rites.

Prom the New-York Gazette.J The rumor of a duel having taken place at Washington, between Mr. M’Dufiie and Gen. Metcalfe, turns out to be false. No duel has been fought—nor is one likely to take place.— It sefims, however, that those two individuals have attempted to effect a meeting on the “ field of honour”—but their attempts were frustrated solely by the difficulty of agreeing upon the wea­ pons that should be used. The National Intel­ ligencer of Thursday gives the correspondence which passed between them and between their seconds, James Clarke for Gen. Metcalfe, and J . Hamilton, jr. for M r.M ’Duffie. In the first letter, Mr., M ’Duffie demands whether Gen. M. intended in his communication, to chai^'e him ” with intentional misrepresentation in his letter to the select committee of the house of represen- talives.” To this the General replies that the language employed by S ir. M’D. in his answer to the pub­ lished comirmnication forbids the required solu­ tion, unless he shall he assured the use of that language was not intended to insult him. Let­ ters then pass between Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Buckner, (a friend of Gen M’s.) which are inaf- feclual in healing “ the breach that words be­ gan.” la consequence, Mr. M’D. addresses on the 24th February a letter to the General, request­ ing “ favour of an interview as soon as conve- uience would permit, prepared to adjust the es- istingdifference, in the mode customary amoag gentlemen.” The General in a note o f the same day declares bis willingness to afford an interview, and names Judge Clarke his second. On the 25th, M ’D ’s second receives this letter from Mr. Clarke ; “ TAe terms o f the contemplated meeting between the fioUi M r, JdJRiiffip. and Oen~ Metcalfe. 1st. The weapons to be rifles, each party to have one. 2d. The distance to he ninety feet. 3d. The manner of holding the rifles shall be, with the huts on the ground at what is called at an order, and this to be understood in the strict military sense. 4th. The word shall b e ; “ Are you ready ? ~ fire—one, two, three, four, five, six— stop.”— The rifles are to remain a t ah order tintptlched withthe-lefl hand, and the parties- tostahdbaCk to bfiok until the word fire is givens Between the Word fire and the word stop, each parly may turn and fire alhis pleasurcfrbm the place where he was first stationed; but should eitocr-party nflt tance, from twenty paces to ope paefi, to fire in any time, from one second to twenty minutes, and in a mode which, on the solemn ohligations of my honor, I will engage that my friend has never practised, o r thought of practising.” lie also observes that the argutnent of the General’s want of dexterity in the ase of the pistol applies with equal force to Mr. M’D. who he' believes never fired a rifle in his life- judge Clarke then proposes that each com­ batant if he choose should use a proper rest on wliich to place his rifle. He conceives that the party giving the challenge hob in no-case what­ ever the right to name the weapons, or dictate the terms, and concludes with the remark that it would bu unavailing to continue the correspon­ dence farther, unless Mr. M’D. should accept one of the propositions submitted. J. Hamilton, jr- under date pfFeb. 27,feplies,. “ As i am brouglit to the conclusion, that Gen; Aietcalfe declines giving Air.
