TJie Austrian Military Power.
I New Yoik Sun.]
In the event of Russia being left to con
tend single-handed against the Anglo-Aus
trian league, it would bo interesting to ap
praise the fighting strength of the two
parties. "We know something about the
numbers and organization of the Czar's
armies, and we know, too, how seriously
fiscal shortcomings at home must cripple
efficiency in the field. "We have had occasion
also to notice the reforms introduced in Eng
land by the Cardwell bill, and it is certain
that Great Britain is rich enough to afford
mistakes, and to reconstruct under fire her
military system. Bat what is the weight of
the third factor, and what would be the value
of Austrian co-operation, as compared, for
instance, with the French alliance in the
Crimean war? These consid
erations of local proximity and popular
enthusiasm would have great weight if the
military resources and organization of the
Austro-Hungarian empire remained what
they were ten years ago. But in no direc
tion has the astonishing transformation,
which dates from the appointment of Count
Beust as Prime Minister in 1867, been more
sweeping and effectual. One of the first
steps of the new ruler was to reconstruct the
whole army system of Austria, as regards
recruitment, term of service, and scheme of
mobilization, after that Prussian model
which has proved itself so incomparable at
Sadowa. During the decade which has
elapsed, the new regulations have been
sagaciously and faithfully applied, and the
result is that the fighting strength of the
empire, always impressive upon paper, is
now a formidable fact. By the law of Dec.
5,1868, the strength of the regular army on
a war footing was fixed at somewhat less than
800,000 men, of which nearly a moiety was
to be furnished by Hungary. But according
to the report lately published by Gen. Upton,
the above numbers are now swollen to 1,013,-
000. nearly a hundred and thirty thousand
being contributed by the Hungarian
landtcehr alone, whose ratio, however, to
the whole Transleithan contingent is but as
one to four. Thus it appears that in addi
tion to his German Czech, an South-Slavic
forces, the Austrian coadjutor of England
might launch into Bulgaria a thoroughly
compacted and disciplined army of some half
million men, largely made up of the Mag
yars, and wholly animated with their fiery
spirit. A sufficient number of troops would
remain available for movements, in Bosnia
and Servia, or on the frontier of Galicia in
There are other reasons which we cannot
dwell on here, but which plainly render a
contest with Austria peculiarly dangerous to
Russia. A large force would have to be de
tailed to prevent an uprising in Poland.
Moreover, the Slavic subjects of the Kaiser
could not fail to exert much pressure on the
kindred peoples of the south, and there are
signs already that Austrian influence would
be dominant at Belgrade, if not at Cettinje.
But, aside from these matters, the broad facts
above outlined demonstrate that, provided
Russia is left isolated in the straggle which
seems impending, the league of Austrian
teel and British gold will probably be fatal
her pmtiga and her ambition.
Borne Incidents in Hie Career.
"On the night thai John Moriaaey reached
San Francisco there wan great excitement in
the saloons and sporting houses, as there had
been a prize-fight daring the day between
George Thompson, known in the pugilistic
circles an 'Pete Crawley's Big 'Un,' and a man
named Howard, and Thompson, who had won
the fight, had challenged any man in California
to fight him. On hearing of Morissey's arrival,
his friends at once entered into negotiations for
a match, and the following day a match was
arranged between the two men for $1,000 a
side. The fight took place on Mare Island on
the of August, 1852, and Morissey won after
fighting 19 minutes. The following November
Morissey returned East, and coming to New
York, was matched to fight Tom Hyer, the
chompion of America, for $ 10,000 a side. This
match however, fell through. Hyer claimed
that his friends had taken op
Morissey's challenge to fight any
man in America without bis knowledge or
sanction. He declined to fight, and paid a for
feit of $250 to Morrissey. On the of Octo
ber, 1853, Morrissey fought 'Yankee' Sullivan
for $1,000 a side. The battle took place at Chat
ham Four Corners, and was won by Morrissey
in 57 minutes. Sullivan displayed great skill
and courage, and punished his burly antago
nist fearfully. But, as he himself is reported
to have said after the fight was over, 'You
might as well hit a brick wall as hit that man
on the head,' At this time Morrissey was
keeping a sporting house on Broadway, known
as the Gem, near the old Broadway theatre, but
he soon after removed to Leonard street, where
he opened a public house, and which he kept
for two years. Nogames were played in this
house. It was while keeping this house that
his serious difficulty with 'Bill' Poole arose. An
altercation, having its orign in some dispute
about the native American party, in which
Poole was a prominent man, resulted in
Poole and Morrissey agreeing to fight a
'rough-and-tumble' fight (a style of fighting in
which Poole was unsurpassed) on the dock at
the foot of Amos street. Morrissey went to
the rendesvous unattended Poole had his
gang with him. The fight began, and the men
were soon on the ground, the Poole men taking
advantage of Morrissey's being down to kick
him in a most brutal and cowardly manner.
Poole would never fight Morrissey again or offer
any satisfaction for the unfair conduct of his
friends. He was shot and killed in the same
year by 'Lew' Baker, in the Stanwix hall,
Broadway. In 1855 Morrissey sold his place in
Leonard street, and did nothing till 1857.
UTS FIGHT WITH HEENAN.
"That year John C. Heenan came on from
California, and his friends were very anxious
to make a match for him with Morrissey. Mor
rissey, however, was tired of fighting, and his
family, who were very averse to bis again en
tering the ring, persuadedjiim to go to Troy.
Heenan's friends followed, and at last suc
ceeded in making a match for 92,500 aside and
the championship of America. The battle was
fought at Long Point, Canada, in October, 1858,
and resulted in the defeat of Heenan in twenty
one minutes. On entering the ring Morrissey
declared that, win or lose, it was the last time
he would ever enter a prize-ring. He kept his
word. After the fight he returned to New York,
and in the spring of 1850 he opened a sporting
house on Broadway, where he made a good
deal of money. In 1860 he went to
England to witness the great
fight between Sayers and Heenan. He also
paid a vist to Ireland in the same year. In
1861 when the war broke out, he began to dab
ble in Wall street. During the great rise of
Harlem in 1863, when the common council on
New York thought to corner Vanderbilt by re
scindingthe city ordinance authorizing him to
extend the Hudson River freight line from
Thirty-first Btreet to St. John's park, Morrissey
was caught with the rest, and lost $50,000
every dollar he had. In the summer he bor
rowed some money and went down to Saratoga,
where he had a club-house which he had built
in Matilda street in 1862. He mado some
money there, and also was successful in Wall
street, and was soon on his pecuniary legs
again. In 1864. 1865, and 1866 his operations
in Wall street were very heavy, and he realized
large sums of money.
POLITICS AND SPECULATION.
"In 1866 he was elected to Congress from the
Fifth district of New York city. Though not
ambitious of legislative honors, he always said
that he was determined to accept the nomina
tion and getelected if possible, simply because
people said that he was not a proper person to
go to Congress. In 1866 he was elected by
2,700 majority. In 1868 his majority amounted
to 13,000. He always spoke with warmth and
gratitude of the kindness and consideration
with which he was treated in Congress, and he
used to say that in no one instance was he re
fused any favor that he requested, either by
the President or by any of his cabinet officers.
He never attempted any great speech, being
fully aware of his own capabilities. On the
ever-memorable Black Fridav, Morrissey
was caught very heavily in New York Cential,
hi3 losses on that day alone amounting to
$600,000. This loss not only sucked up all his
own ready money, but necessitated his borrow
ing a little to make up the amount. But he
settled every Wall Btreet difference without
favor. During the season of 1870 ho opeaed
his new club-house at Saratoga, which he had
just finished at a cost of $250,000. It is un
doubtedly the finest building, devoted to its
especial purposes, in the world. On New
Year's day, 1871, at his house in West Twenty
fourth street, he organized the political move
ment known as the young Democracy, for
which, after the passing of the Tweed charter
at Albany in the ensuing spring, he was
expelled from Tammany hall. After the de
feat of Tweed and the overthrow of the ring in
the fall of 1871, the reorganization of Tam
many hall was carried out, Mr. Morrissey was
included in the new roll of members, and soon
began to take a very active part in the manage
ment of its affairs, till, in the fall elections of
1873, he shared with Mr. Kelly the leadership
of Tammany. At that time he boasted that
though he had always been actively interested
in politics, and had spent $200,000 in politics,
still he had never held office in New York, had
never had any contract with the city, had
never had a warrant or draft upon the city
treasury, and had never, either honestly or dis
honestly, made one dollar out of the city of
In 1875 Morrisey again became a candidate
for State honors, and defeated John Fox, Tam
many candidate, in the Fourth Senatorial dis
trict, by over 4,000 majority. He served with
credit, opposing Tammany measures effectual
ly. Last fall he might have been easily re
elected in the Fourth district, but chose to
fight John Kelly in the Seventh, comprising
the most aristocratic portion of the city. His
victory will be remembered BB the feature of
the State campaign. It cost him his life.
From the day of his election to that of his
death he was seeking to escape the conse
quences of doing political work night and
day, when he Bhould have been in bed. Mor
rissey defeated Kelly and killed himself.
OF LITTLE FAITH.
Mr. Wntterson Thinks That Tildm Could
Not Have Been Inaugurated,"Any How."
It was not in the books to inaugurate Tilden
and Hendricks. There was an organized con
spiracy bent on resisting it and having the
power to resist it. Armed revolution alone
could set itself against this conspiracy and
armed revolution would have been a blunder
and a crime. The same generation never en
gages twice in civil war. Besides, the Demo
crats were practically helpless. The only
Northern Legislature we had was that of the
little State of Connecticut, that of New Jersey
afterward turning out to be Democratic by "a
scratch. Our counsels were divided.
We could not set a squadron in
the field. Grant was in the White
House waiting, above all things, a row. He
was sure to profit by a disturbance, for he had
both the tools and the resources to aid him.
The South was sufficiently united, but the first
gun for Tilden would have been the signal for a
North, substantially united, that, too, on the
old issue the South would have been consigned
to the old ruts, and, in ninety days, Republi
canism in the United States would have been
stamped oqt under the heels of a military
usurpation. Unless a majority of the Northern
States had gone for Tilden, it was not possible
to seat him.
