JOE RILEY sad TOM FOP TEI.,
$750,00 a side, ifs God.
Great excitement has been caused, for I
some time past, among the patrons of the
"manly art" in this place, by the prepa
rations for this contest, which came off at 1
a corrall constructed for the occasion, about
two miles above the town, on Sunday, the
18th of September.
Jot RILEY hails from the Emerald Isle.
Ie was born at Ballahays, in the county of
Cavan, and is twenty-one years old. His 1
height is five feet 9 1-2 inches, and his
weight 145 pounds. This is his third ap- 1
pearance in the ring. On the 14th of Oc
tober, 1861, he fought Billy Monaghan in
Sierra county, California, and whipped his
man cleverly in twenty-two rounds. His
second encounter was with Pat Berry at
Virginia City, Nevada Territory, on the 7th
of December, 1862. In this affair he came
off victorious after seven rounds. Joe had
been under the care of Con Orem, with the
assistance of a friendly outsider. Tox
FOSTER, his opponent, is from the land of
John Bull, and first saw the light at Not
tingham, the birth-place of Bendigo, and of
the present champion, Bob Brettle. His
age is thirty; weight 140, and his height,
5 feet 7.1-2 inches. Foster was trained by
" Sailor Jack," better known as " Happy
Jack," and has fought once. His antago
list was Bill Tripp. The fight took place
at Central City, C. T., on the 26th of De
cember, 1862. Foster was declared the
winner after the sixteenth round.
The referee was a gentleman, well known
as a patron of the ring, and discharged his
duties in an upright and impartial spirit, to
the satisfaction of all present. The um
pireserhosen were Capt. George Williams
for Riley, and Mr. George lIynson for
Was fine; not a cloud in the sky, and a
file breeze. There was rather too much sun,
but, by consent, the choice was between I
north-west and south-east, giving each man
fair play. The attendance was very nu
merous, every available spot being occupied
with eager spectators. Strict precautions
had been taken to prevent any persons
with arms entering the corrall.
Was well chosen, being a nice level spot,
among the hills. In the centre of the cor
rall a most substantial ring was formed. A
nice spot of turf was alone wanted to make
it all that could be desired; but the sur
face was level and free from rock. Every
means had been taken to ensure a fair fight.
The fine gravel pointed to hard times for
the fallen, though it was less open to the
objection of slipperiness. An objection
having baen made to the height of the ropes,
'it was allowed by the referee, and quickly
remedied. The crowd passed the time in the
way usual on such occasions; namely, in
hetting and chaff, the greatest good humor
prevailing. The odds had been in favor of
Foster, but on the ground, the betting was
even. A photograph of the toutte ensemble
would have been one of the best and most
varied pictures of mountaineer costume
that over the pencil of the artist portrayed.
Whilst waiting for the men, any invasion
of the arena was met by loud cries of "put
him out," and, amidst general mirth, the
unlucky object of public notice retreated
in the most crest-fallen'manner. Through
out the entire proceedings, the spectators
behaved better than we ever remember to
have seen on a similar occasion. There
was no confusion and no ill-feeling. Losers
and winners behaved like men, and parted
g Riley's colors were green and he wore the
stars and stripes around his waist. Foster
hoisted blue stripes on a white ground,
with blue and red spots. Con Orem acted
as second for Riley, and Joe Bean for
Foster. The minor agrecables being per
formed by Mike Duane for Riley, and Jack
Ellis for Foster. -
Precisedy at thirty-one minutes past three
Foster shied his castor into the ring. He
was speedily followed by Riley. Both men
then proceeded to divest themselves of their
sup.3rfluous toggery, and sat patiently
awaiting the c1ll of the Referee.

As the cheering subsided, Con Orem step

sist's face to the sun, and in this he suc
eeded, though without gaining any advan
age, as Riley at once discovered his error,
ld immediately regained his former posi
ion, looking more serious and bent on
usiness. He at once launched out with
oth maulers but was short-Foster easily
voiding it. Foster lunged out with his
sight, and got home on Riley's ribs. A
lo.e ensued; both down; Riley uppermost.
Vhen the men were picked up. the claret
.ppeared )n Riley's potato trap, and the
-ochineal was also visible near Foster's sin
RocND 2.-As soon as the men met, Riley
lashed at Foster with his right, and suc
ceeded in planting it on his ribs with great
orce. A s1 arp contest ensued; Riley boring
n, driving Foster to the ropes. Foster let
ly with his right, but was wide of the mark;
sa he delivered his blow, he lowered his
iead, which came in contact with Riley's
eft side. Not to be denied, the son of
Erin rushed in for a close and threw Foster
)n the ropes; falling heavily on him, and
staying there till the referee interfertd.
Both parties claimed a "foul." Riley's
impirc objecting to Foster's butting, and
Foster's to Riley's being so inconveniently
Ong in arising. Both men were cautioned
nd the mill resumed.
RocrD 3.-After a little sparring Foster
popped in his right on Riley's ribs. This
s:as returned by a thorongh straight-goer
from Ri!ey's right, which alighted heavily
,n Riley's left listener-turning a fresh
ap. Riley again sought close quarters,

start. Fos:ter succeeded in getting in his
left over Riley's dexter optic, cutting a gash
from which the ruby flowed in abundance.
Following his stroke, Foster delivered a tap
on the conk, with his right, when Riley
ru-hed in and threw Foster falling on him.
orUND 5.-Sparring for wind. Bellows
heard on both sides. Riley made a heavy
drive with his left, but was short, Foster,
who all along tried the artful. retreating.
Bent on mischief, Riley forced his road in,
and hammered away in the old style, which
not suiting Foster's book, he retired to
Ro-.n E.-Rile;y eAun up with the claret
distilling from the cut over his right visual,
nothing daunted, he commenced by letting
drive with his right, but was again out of
distance. Foster got in his right on the
ribs heavily. A close, and Foster putting
on the crook, floored his man cleverly.
RoUND 7.-Riley puffing but courageous.
Foster's breathing apparatus also in full
work. Both sparring for wind. The round
ending in the old way; Riley having
the best of it at the close and Foster slip
ROUND 8.-Riley scored a miss with his
right-cautious play, ended by a heavy
smack from Foster's right on Riley's hull
timbers. Foster getting away, tried the
same dodge with his left; but, dropping his
wig block, as in the second round, again
~imet Riley in the bread bag, a quick rally
followed; Riley visiting Foster's ribs, and
Foster rapping with the right on Riley's
cranium, but the steam was wanting.
In the struggle for the fall Foster slipped

An appeal was made to the referee, by
Riley's umpire and a caution again served
upon Foster to keep his front side up.
ROu.n 9.-No time wasted, and not much
harm done; but Riley, anxious for close
quarters, forced Foster back and breaking
in, threw him heavily in his own corner.
ROUND 10.-A scrambling affair in the
old style; no one the worse. This round
lasted only ten seconds, and was terminated
by Foster slipping down.
•Rou.s 11.-Rapid exchanges; Fo'ster re
ceiving a remembrancer from Riley's right
on the wisdom kettle, and Riley stepping
in, threw oester on the ropes; the referee
separating them before the arrival of the

mending every stroke; Foster examining
the gravel before retiring to his corner.
RounD 26.-This was one of the best
rounds of the fight. Heavy exchanges, old
style; terminating in a close hug and a
severe struggle; both falling on the ropes;
Riley partly uppermost. Just before the
close, Foster again tried the battering ram.
Riley's second and umpire both calling
"foul," and appealing to the referee amidst
loud cries of "foul," and " go on." The
referee then told Con to hold his man; and
obtaining silence, declared that according
to the strict rules of the ring, Foster had
lost the fight 20 minutes before, and in the
impartial discharge of his duty, he was
bound to award the fight to his antagonist.
The decision of the referee in this fight
was strictly correct; and could not have
been withheld without leaving that gentle
man open to the charge of unfairness. As
it is, every one is satisfied. It was a for
tunate circumstance that the affair was in
the hands of a man so competent to
decide such questions-otherwise it might
have ended in a wrangle, as many a previous
fight has done. Foster was evidently over
matched. The youth and courage of his
opponent were too much for him, and far
more than counterbalanced his supe
rior skill. Both men were well handled and
had fair play, in the widest sense of thi
word. Foster had the disadvantage in the
choice of corners; but in the sparring
where this was most against him he suc
ceeded best. His failure was in the real
fighting power. Had his blows been sent in
with sufficient energy and force the result
must have been different. It is possible
that he meant fairly, and that the habit he
had acquired, in sparring, of lowering his
head when striking, caused him to trans
gress the rules of the P. R.; but at thebest,
it was a bad habit. Riley's pluck and en
durance would have given him the victory,
in our opinion, at all events. He was
mending every round, from the 7th. If
Riley should continue his present careerhe
will, in five or six years, be an ugly custo
mer to contend with inside of the ropes.
Twenty-six rounds in twenty-eight minutes
is very quick work-too quick to allow
much skill being displayed by the combat
ants. After the fight, the parties returned
to town, and so well pleased were they with
the conduct of the referee on the occasion,
and the decision which he gave, that the
band turned out and serenaded him, and,
after partaking of his hospitalities, the
party proceeded to Con Orem's, where
toasts, songs, and an extempore oration
from Con came of with great spirit. Con
gained many friends among Riley's country
men by the tact and address with which he
seconded his man. It is generally supposed
among the visitors that they got to bed
but the particulars did not transpire : Aw.

Is the name of a newly laid df town,
a bout twenty-miles from this pisee It is
situate on what is generally known as Mill
Creek, at the mouth of the cas~n, two ilua,
below Gannell' saw mill. Tkhe *t is one
of the most beautiful in the country, bein
a gently inclined plateaS, fro whish a
magnificent view of the surroundiag
country can be had. A few mles to the
south and west is the Stinkiugwater vlley,
and in the distance to the north-wet, are
to be seen the beantiful valleys of the Jef
ferson, Big Role and Beaver Mead. O0
the north and east are majestic and pie*
turesque mountains, at the base of which
this place is located. There is a great
abundance of timber and fin buildi ng
stone within a very short distanee of the
town; besides it is located in the midst oe
what promises to be one of the richest
quartz mining sections in the west. It is
about three miles from the "Monitor" and
other rich lodes on Ram's Horn gulch;
and within a mile and a half of the place
are the "Rothschilds," "Ohio," " Aste
lope," "Eclipse" and many other ri&a
lodes, some of which are within a half a
mile of the town limits. On the town site
near the creek, an enterprising citieon
named Vantteburg is erecting two luge
quartz mille, one of which will be at w~*r
in a few days. The country in the vicinity
is suicient in agricultural resources to
support quite a large place, to say nothing
of the untold mineral wealth of the eoantry.
The valleys thereabouts are being settled
