Price and Kelly, the Pugilists.
The recent fisticuff raatoh continued but
twenty-seven, instead of forty minutes. As
many of our readers "fancy" such news, we
give a short biography of the contestants:
Edmund Enoch Prioe was born in London,
England, in the year 1832, and is consequently
twonty-seven years old, though he looks much
older. Hight five feet nine and a half Inches,
stands ereot, and has a firm, rather determined
expression of countenance.
His ordinary weight is about two hundred
pounds, though at present, (October, 1859,) it
is about onehundred andflfty-four pounds, and
if necessary it can be reduced to one hundred
Mr. Prioe came tp this country in 1854, and
when occasion requires, acts as interpreter for
the Marine Court at Boston particularly in
the oase of French sailors. Having resided
five years in Franoe before coming here, be
acquired and speaks the Frenoh language
fluently. He has always been healthy aad ro
bust, and has led a uniformly temperate life.
Medicine he knows nothing of, never having
had to use it. He has fought several battles,
bat In none were the stakes of the magnitude
of those risked in the encounter with Kelly.
Johnny Moore was his first antagonist; the
battle with him took place in Yorkshire, and
listed one hour and forty minutes, at which
time vlotory was deolded in his favor. His
seeond antagonist was Bill Agen, who was
defeated In twenty-five minutes, July, 1852.
Third, he enoountered Tim Turpin, in Sheffield,
and whipped him in three rounds. The fonrth
contest was Harry Roebuck, at Sheffield, whom
he defeated in a battle of only twelve rounda.
His next engagement was with Luke Forrester,
in Leeds, May 1, 1853. Sixteen rounds were
fought in twenty-eight minutes, Price winning
the stake, 5. He was next engaged in a
"turn up" with a Warrington rough, and de
feated him in six rounds. Also a shoemaker,
at Stone, in Staffordshire, for 1 a side; and at
Wolverhampton he won 3 of the "Stourbridge
Cbloken" in twenty-eight minutes. His last
battle was with Joe Coburn, of New York, for
a parse of $500 a side. This lasted three
hours and twenty-two minutes, one hundred
and sixty-eight rounds being fought, when,
darkness coming on, the fight was declared
In June last he received a forfeit from
George King, who failed to "come up to the
soratob." From this forfeit resulted a chal
lenge from Kelly, which was accepted by
Price's backer, ho not knowing of the match
until three days after it was made. This
match was for $2.000 or $1,000 a side stake,
and for the championship of the middle
weights of America. It is called a eatch
weight match that is, neither are obliged to
reduce themselves to or below a certain weight.
Price and Kelly never met until the day of the
battle, and consequently knew nothing of each
other's peculiarities, mode of attaok. or vul
nerable points. Price trained at Spy Pond, a
healthy and desirable spot, seven or eight
miles from Boston. In his training there has
been the same general regard paid to his diet
and habits that is usually thought requisite for
the full development of muscular power, i ne
only peculiarity was in the introduction of the
Indian club exercise. We had an opportunity
of seeing Mr. Prioe use these instruments
while completing his training, at Burt Scott's,
near Buffalo, and were favorably struck with
their utility; and, judging from the develop
ment of the muaoles of the shoulders shown in
the present oase, they must become a favorite
instrument lor trainers.
James, familiarly known as " Aistra
lian Kelly," was born in Ireland, Deoember
25, 1831. He stands five feet eight and
a-half inohes, and weighs one hundred and
forty-five and a half pounds, in oondition,
(Ootober 5.) He has fought ten battles in
England, and three in Australia-the present
is the first in this country making a total of
fourteen. His trainer ia John Lawrence, who
handled Morrisey; he went into training June
IS, at Coney Island, near New York, where be
could enjoy sea-bathing and good air. He
remained here but a few weeks, and removed
to Lansingburg, locating at the "Abbey;"
here he completed his severe drill. He left for
the battle-ground Ootober 3, and passed through
Buffalo to a location five miles from the ground
selected, where we met him the day before the
mill, looking well and anxious to go in.
The Details of the Broderick and Terry
Duel in California—The Origin of the
It appears that David C. Terry was a candi
date for renomination by the Democratic party
for Supreme Judge, and was not chosen W,
W. Cope having coped with him successfully.
In a speech, however, he remarked of the
Douglas section of the party, in California, that
they belonged, heart and soul, body and
breeches, to Broderlck, whom they were really
ashamed to own as their master. . Who, if he
sailed under any Douglas flags, was that of
Frtderich, not Stephen. When Broderlck read
the speech, he exploded in words about Terry
that gave offense to Perley, a friend of Terry.
Parley challenged; Broderlck refused, as Perley
was an Englishman not his equal in politioal
position, and his party needed his servioes un
til after the election.
THE CHALLENGE OF TERRY ACCEPTED.
Terry having resigned his offloe on the morn
ing after the eleotion, sent a challenge to Brod
erlck. The inquiry waa made for the cause.
Terry said he overlooked the Perley matter,
and complained of B. that in a speech some
time before, he had said Terry ought to have
been hung by the Vigilance Commitiee when
they had hold of him. Whereupon B. ac
knowledged that in the excitement of the hour
snoh an expression he had used, but he enter
tained really no euoh desire, and withdrew the
offensive expression. Making an apology there
for, he asked of Terry to withdraw bis offen
sive expressions, which Terry refused to do,
and the fight had to proceed.
The parties met on the 12th ult., were inter
rupted and arrested by the polioe and taken
before a Justioe, who dismissed them on the
ground that no offense had yet been committed.
(The laws on the gold coast must bear a sin
gular construction.) Early the next morning
an Immense conoourae of people being ob
servers, they met again. Broderick's pistol
went off before time, Terry took deliberate aim
and Broderlck fell, and died on the 16th ult.

Snly 1, 1859, but the export office at Pernam
buoo had not, up to the 17th August last, the

What La Mountain Meant To Do.
The Troy Time$ of Monday, printed before
the newt af La Mountain's safety had been re
ceived, gives the following explanation of his
movements and intentions:
Mr. La Mountain had calculated unon mak
ing an ascension from Watertown on the 15th
of September, and all his arrangements were
perfected with that view. But those who bad
tne matter in charge afterward requested that
the time should be changed to the 22d. Mean
while, when on the cars bound west, Mr. La
Mountain purchased a New York paper, in
whioh he found an article giving an elaborate
description of the mammoth balloon built by
Carlincourt or, aa the paper called him,
Lowe at Hoboken, for tho Atlantic voyage.
With that rapidity of determination which
characterizes him, he at once, although ticketed
some distance further, got off the oars at Rome,
took the next train of oars east, connected with
the Hudson River train at this city, and went
on to New York, without stopping to consult,
or even see a single friend here. Arriving at
Jersey City, he found matters so seoretly con
duoted there that he oould by no device obtain
sight of the monster balloon.
Going baok to New York he traced out the
author of the article, obtained sn introduction
to him nnder an assumed name, representing
himself as a meohanio who bad devoted much
attention to the study of ballooning, and who
was desirous, if he oould persuade himself that
the arrangements had been properly made, to
take a passage with Carlincourt. Mr. La
Mountain learned enough to satisfy him that
the monster balloon was really almost comple
ted, and that its owner would certainly attempt
the passage. He then went to Mr. Oatmas,
who had pledged him $20,000 to build the
"Atlantio" balloon, informed him what he had
learned, and proposed to go right to work if
the funds were furnished, build his balloon In
less than two weeks, and make his trip ahead
of Carlincourt. Mr. Oatman objected, said
there was no use of entering a field already
occupied; and told him that if the big balloon
failed, he would then furnish the funds not
Mr. La Mountain returnod to this oity
greatly excited on the subjeot. It was his
opinion that Mr. Oatrnt n bad abandoned him.
He knew that Mr. Gagor, his former partner,
had been written to on the subjeot, and believed
that he had induoed Oatman to help Corlin
oonrt, for the purpose of ruining him.
The connection of Mr. Gager's name with the
lost enterprise, strengthened this'.impresslon. He
felt that he was about to be deprived of all be
had labored, studied and sacrificed time and
money to accomplish, just when the object was
within bis reach. He came to us and had a
lengf and absorbing conversation on the subject.
CarTinoourt, he said, was advised to leave on
the otn of Ootober. if be started under favor
able oiroumstancea. he was sure to aooomnlish
the voyage. "That," said he, "would be an
end of John La Mountain." Then, reflecting
upon the subjeot a moment, he declared that
ratner man have carlincourt oross the ocean
first, he would make the attempt with his
small balloon. We figured up the capacities of
tne giooe, ana our oonoiusion was, that if in
flated to the full with pure hvdrygen, it would
have an ascenBive power of six hundred pounds
above the weight of two men of ordinary size.
The voyage with this same balloon, from St.
Louis to Lake Ontario, 1,100 miles was accom
plished with lest than one hundred pounds of
The conclusion Mr. LaMontain reached
was, that the easterly current would surely
be found four miles above the earth; that it
would carry him at least sixty miles an
hour; that, therefore, the passage could
be accomplished in less than two days; that,
one hundred pounds of ballast would be all
ho should need, leaving five hundred pounds
for contingencies. Stating a time when the
eastern current is less to Tie depended upon
than at other periods, he'said, "Carlincourt
has never studied the matter, and he would
be fool enough to start just at that time."
Finally he said, "Never mind; let them all
desert me. I will fill the balloon with pure
hydrogen in Borne back yard, and go over
before Carlincourt, any way. We will show
them, who is the originator of Atlantic bal
looning." And on bidding us good-bye, he
added, "Don't fear for me; it will be all right
sooner than some people imagine."
Before proceeding to Watertown, Mr. La
Mountain went to Lansingburg, where his
wife was then stopping. He called hor into
their bedroom and said; "Mary, I have been
thining and talking the matter over, and I am
going aoross the ooean with my small balloon.
Carlincourt shan't have the credit for my dis
coveries." His wife laughed, not supposing
him in earnest. After some further conversa
tion he added: "If, after one of my ascensions,
you should'nt hear from me very soon, you
may make up your mind I have landed in
Europe." This was the last said by him on
the subject hereabout. But in Watertown on
the day of his aaoension, conversing with Mr.
Comstook he aaid: "They have seoretly built
a big balloon in New York, to head me off on
the Atlantio voyage, but I am going to show
the people of this country a triok, very soon,
that they don't dream of now."
We have probably given enough to show that
the one engrossing object of M r. La Mountain's
mind was the neoessity for accomplishing his
enterprise in advanoe of all competitors.
Fatal Accident. On Saturday last a negro
boy belonging to Mr. Jeptha Fryor was al
most instantly killed by a charge from a gun
in the hands of a boy belonging to Mr. J,
Smith Kennny, of this county. Mr. Ken
ney, as we learn, had sent his boy to a neigh
bor's for the gun, and, returning with it, he
fell in with the other boy. While this boy
was letting down a pair of bars for the other
to ride through, the horse became restive,
and its rider attempted to dismount with the
gun in his hands when the cock caught,

moreland County, Penn., an old steamboat in
stitution, (the same person whom I mentioned

Platte in a sort of flat-bottomed scow, for the
purpose of taking soundings, Ac, with a view
df running a light-draught steamboat up to

is full of confidence in his object to do so.

Safety of the Santa Fe Mail.
ST. LOUIS, October 10.
The Santa Fe mail, with dates to the 16th
ult., reached Independence this morning.
Messrs. Otero, Porter, and Crenshaw, who oame
with the mail, confirm the recent attaok on the
mail party. The Indians took all the mules,
provisions and olothing, but did not molest the
mail, which was taken forward by the next
The incoming party found the dead bodies
of fonr men, supposed to have been Pike's
Peakers, two days subsequent to the attaok
upon the outward bound mail. The detention
of the inooming party waa owing to their wait
ing for an ox train behind, having been ap
prised of the difficulties ahead by a Mexioan.
The combined strength of the two trains
probably prevented another attack.
A company of cavalry had been ordered to

Dr. Morrison, of Maryland, moved that
the Committee on Canons inquire into the
expediency of modifying canon xiv, of 1832,
by adding another section, as follows:
"After the order of morning prayer, the
litany and eommon service, being separate
offices, may, as in former times, be used sep
arately, at the discretion of the minister; pro
vided, this enactment be not understood as
interfering in any way in an established con
gregation, to use the whole of the prescribed
service during the coarse of the day." Re
ferred, Rev. Dr. Evans, of Maryland, moved that
the third canon, of 1850, be referred to the
Committee on Canons.
Rev. Dr. Quintard, of Tennessee, offered a
resolution repealing the title of Assistant
Bishop, as set forth in the sixth canon, of

City Railroads in Philadrlphia. The
Council of Philadelphia, at the commence
ment of the running of the city railroads,
imposed a tax upon each car, and required
that a certain proportion of any extra divided
should be paid into the city treasury. Some
of the railroads have been running over a
year, and there is some fault found because
only one, tho Fifth and Sixth street company,
has paid in the amount of money which
would properly be due the city. Iho Ledger
The Fifth and Sixth company has paid
$1,034 for license and $012 for dividend. The
Second and Third-street, which is probably
doing as large a business as any road in the
oity, has paid only $285. The Tenth and
Eleventh $584. West Philadelphia, the sec
ond oldest road, $440. The total amount re
ceived from all the roads is $4,122, of which
the Fifth and Sixth has paid nearly one-half.

Our attention was called to these grapes in

the result of raising turkeys:
I purchased and wintered six turkeys, five
of them hens. They commenced laying on
