The Prize Ring.
A Hrutiil Exhibition.
Xr.W YOllK V. BALTIMOKE.
Tlio recent prize light in Connecticut,
between Edwards, of New York, mid
.Collyer, of IJaltlmore, was one of the
most brutal and demoralizing exhibitions
cverHcen In tho United States, With
the hope or contributing something to
that feeling of Uiegustaud exasperation
thai ftecms required, to force xur law
makers Into the fuloptloif of measured of
prevention, we give tho details of the
light us r-een by a reporter of tlje New
Hound 1. As soon as tho men begun
IohIiow play, it becumo evident that
Collyer was over matched. Tho power

from the friend of Edwards, which
were repeated when ho dealt Collyer an
other resounding blow on tho riba. The
men then clinched and fell, the full be
ing just about an oven thing.
Itound The men catno up irully. and
went eacerl v and shandy at work. After
a llttlo harmless sparring, EdwanN gave

seeing that' "Edwanhr sclcnco was too
much for him, rushed in, clinmicti Ed
wards and threw him heavily.

but was unable to get home on any
portion of Edwards' premises, and linully
received a crashing blow on the neck,
which ent hi m sprawling all over the
ring. CJreut cheers for the Edwards
party; and Kit IJumscxclulmcd: You'd
better take that pup o' your'u home."

the worst of It, Edwards throwing him
heavily. Tho discovery that Edwards
wus too much for Collyer on the clinch
greatly dispirited the friends of the Haiti

ed no signs of dismissing pluck, and
came undauntedly to tho scratch. Tho
round was short nnd sharp, Edwards
hitting Collyer a rcsounpliig blow on tho
forehead, which hurled him all abroad
upon his back.
At this tho Nhw Yorkers set up an
other yell, tantalizlngly shook their

From Ilia Evsnjrlllo Courier, 12tli.
, A good deal, of excitement was created
In tlio city yesterday by tho report that
there was a negro woman in a house on
Locust street between Hecond nnd
Third, who hud a snake iu herstoni:..'li,
and, a crcat many people visited i lie
house. Tho noirro woman camo to Ev
ansvlllo about six days ago from Ownes
boro, Kentucky, aud buo statesj that she
has sufTercd from tho snako about six
years. At tho pit of tho stomach, there
la a large belt, aimosi mo size oia man's
arm, and just whero the bones of tho
breast senarato. an Impression Is mado
through thosklii that resomblos a snake's
head. Tho belt which extends around
the bod v. If touched, nroduces the most
excruciating nnln to tho woman, and as
tears fall from her eyes, she cries, "don't
make it bite me."
On tho touch, this belt, or snake, or
whatever It may be, contracts, and then
the woman suffers, It would appear, tho
pains of death. -Wliai this strange thing
is, we do not venturo an opinion, but,
certainly It Is a remarkable case, and ono
that wo hope our moat learned physi
cians will Investigate. If tho gentlcmon
of the medical fraternity will pay a visit
to tho woman to-day, and glvn an opin
ion In regard to tho case, it will bo read
with interest. The theory that a snako
can exist in tho stomach of a human
being is not a very plausable one. but lu
this woman's stomach there is Rorao
thing unnatural, no doubt. Otic thing
singular Is tills, If tho woman has plenty
of milk, she experiences no particular
pain, but rents quietly.
Miss Leclcru. Is the lady who supports

wife. The Detroit Tribune' don't think
much of a man who gets $500 a night, aa
