The great mil' Seymour knocked out of
timehh backers looacfaith, but re
June to give up s'akca or belt Grant
to fight the "great unknown,9'
Tl o nolitioul contest this fall bonrs a
strll i ir resemblance to that between
Alll c Mcuoo and Aaron Jones In their
late mill near Cincinnati. Jones rcpie
ecntcd the Now York plug-uglies and
Eastern "fancies;" McCool the St.
Louis I misers and Western "snorts."
Seymour thochatnpViof tho Eastern
copperheads. His trains, were Sam
Tildeti and Munton Marble, Belmont
bottle-holder, and Frank lllalr and
Wade Hampton his seconds in tho ring",
who arc hot and impetuous and want
the fiphtinjj: forced. Grant is the Wes
tern champion of tho Republicans.Stan
ton rind Wasbburnc trainers, A. T.
Stewart bottli!-hohler and Colfax and
Wade seconds in tho ruifr, who are cool
and experienced, and tell their princi
pal to stand squarely on his platform
and when he gets his opponent in
chancery to pummel him well, Uncle
Sam umpire. Roth incii toss their beav
ers into thu ring, and on a call of time,
too the scratch.
Round 1. (Fought in Vermont.)
Grant put out his left hand as a feeler.
Soy mo ir struck a spltul'ul blow, but was
far "out of distance." Grar.t returned
it wi h his rltrht, Rattening Seymour's
"smeller." First blood for Grant, and
loud cheers from his friends.
Round 2, (Fought in Maine.) A blow
from Grant's "left duke" caught Sey
mour on the "potato trap," knocking
a mouthful down his throat, and leav
ing the "Utlca kid" sprawling on tho
grass with his heels in the air. Tho
blow was ncaru all over the Held. Tre
mendous cheers fiom tho Western boyg,
anu oners 10 oet two to one auu a lew
Round 3, (Fought in Colorado.
Slight exchanges on both sides. Sey
mour went to grass to avoid punisu
ment. Cheers tiom the Grant men.
Round 4, (Fought In Nebraska.)
Roth parties wary and watching for an
opening, when Grant g-'ts in a nice lick
on the ribs. Seymour down. More
cheers from the Western crowd,
Round 5. Terrillc lighting (in Indi
ana); blows given and taken in quick
succession, ihe m cctators hold their
breath; olFerstobet that Seymour wins
the round, which are snapped up in
the "twinkling tf a bed post;" the
combatants clinch aud, titter a severe
struggle, Grantthrows hisinun aud falls
Heavily ou mm. liotn men cut and
bloody, but Seymour has one "optic"
Round 0. Time called; Grant com
ing upBtnllling; Seymour looks faint
and glum : Grant fores all the lighting
(in Ohio) and drives his antagonist on
the lopca, where he gets his head in
chancery and "mashes his mug;" Sey
mour slips down awfully mauled in this
round. Terrillc cheering lor Grant.
Five to one oH'ured and lew takers. Sey
nuur sits on his second's knee, and is
well sponged by his backers, and told to
"go in and win" in Pennsylvania.
Round 7 and last. Boai men go at
each other with vigor, striking tremen
dous blows. Seymour strikes under the
belt (Puilauclpuiti) ; cries of foul, but
not allowed. Great excitement. Grant
gives him a heavy lick from Lancaster
on the fciiiellert and gets one nearly as
heavy on the ribs for Rorks ; hard fight
ing on both sidej, when Gra it, seeing
an opening, plants an awful blow, for
Alleghany, with his manly, on Sey
moi r's nbs, doubling him up and
km ck ng him through the ropes about
a rod. '1 lie Comierhcad here lay quiver
ing on the grass, tho b.eatli punched
out of his body, h-s face a ghastly livid
l.u j. jno eiious oi nts oacuersor bottle-
holders cou.d revive him before time"
was called, when his second threw up
the sponge, in token of dcleat. When
the poor ioiii.w came to, lie looked
wildly about him, spit blood profusely.
and asked, "Where am I ? Did a horto
kick me, or a locomotive run over mo ?
What is the matter with me ?"
Tho last. Pennsylvania, round was
very scientifically fought on both sides,
but Grant exhibited the most muscle,
struck straiulit fioni the shoulder, and
knocked his opneuont out of time in
that Alleghany blow. When the fight
was over, Grant seemed to bo just get
ting his "second wind," and appeared
asf.eshand powerful as when ho en
tered tun ring. It was apparent that
Seymour could not endure punishment,
