An English Pugilist Asks Fair Play for
A heavy weight pugilist writes to the Lon
don TVnee as follow: i.ri.rni r i 1 .. .1
I am sure you will allow me to make a few
observations on behalf of the gnllant Benicia
Boy, who is not, I think, recelvlhg; quit fair
play at the hands of his host, the English,
U is accused of acting unfairly. In having
nearly throttled Tom Bayers, and in having
bored him down against the ropes until he
was black in the face.- '
The battle was to be fbnglit according to
the rulei of the Kngllsh prixe ring. Tnese
rules allow a combatant to throw his arm
around his opponent's neck, and, having so
secured his head, to pommel It as long and as
violently as he ean. If he does not squeeze
the neck pretty tight, it is improbable thnt
his antagonist will permit him to retain his
head in such adisagreenble fix; and if the said
squeezes causes his antagonist to become pre
maturely black in the face, which is not un
likely, so much the worse for his antagonist
and so mnch the better him, that is all.
Mind, I don't defend the rules of the prize
ring, for I think they are Very bmfal; I
merely say that Heenan'a method of fighting
was entirely in accordance with them, nnd
that if it had not been, and if he had been
pronounced to have acted foully by the. ref
eree, he would have instantly lost the battle.
"Again, he seems to softer in public estima
tion because he is bigger than Bayers. That
is certainly bis advantage, bnt It is not his
fault. He ehalleneed the best man in Eng
landthe Champion of England. If the best
man had been a big man he would have
fought him. ' He chanced to be a small one,
and be has fought him. '. What more could
he have done to prove his courage, skill and
vigor? "' '"
' Bayers deserves all credit for having con
tinued the fight so long with his right arm
disabled by the terrible blows of Heenan.
But surely Heenan deserves, perhaps, more
credit for having so disabled Say era than
Bayers does for having bunged up and blinded
Heenan'a eyes. ' .
At Farnboroueh Savers's friends and back
ers numerically exceeded those of Heenan In
the proportion of ten to one.
. If the English party, the Btronger, had been
anxious that the fight shonld go on, I think
that the doctrine or probabilities leads us to
suppose that it would hare gone: if the Amer
ican party, the weaker, fearing their man
Would be beaten, had wished it to be stopped,
I think the same doctrine points out to us
that their wishes would not, In all probabil
ity, have been gratified. ,

But about half-past ten o'clock in the even

or twenty seconds; as in the first, the oscil

This was not unattended with damage. A
partially DUtit nouse in tne urana Kue lell
with A terrible crash, and several others, es
pecially near tbe wharves, were so damaged
as to be untenantable.
The news that arrives from the South is
sad and disastrous. In . the cities of Leo

court the extreme pro-Slavery oligarchy. The
following is the summing-up:.

A Young Woman Sues an Old Widower for
Breach of Promise—Verdict Given for
The case of Sarah H. Travis t. Abel Pond.
was tried last week, In Middlesex Couuty,
Massachusetts, to recover damages for an
alleged breach of promise of marriage. Both
parties reside at Holliston, Mass., and the
plaintiff is a young lady of about twenty-five
years of age, the daughter of a wealthy far
mer of that jtlacs. The defendant at the time
his alleged attentions to the plaintiff were
paid, was a widower, aged 61. He had long
resided in Holliston, had been actively en
gaged in business there, had hold several im
portant town offices, and accumulated a small
fortune. At the time of his attentions to the
plaintiff, his first wife had been dead less than
a year. The plaintiff alleged and introduced
evidence to prove that in January, 1668, her
acquaintance with the defendant was com
menced by the reception from him of a polite
note, asking leave to visit her, which he
shortly afterward did, and at ouce made
proposals of marriage; that when she hesi
tated somewhat about accepting his offer on
account of the disparity In years ibetween hcr-
seu ana aeienunnt, and me suddenness 01
his unexpected offer, he urged her to accent
it by showing her how much better it would
be to marry him, with bis wealth and influ
ence in town, notwithstanding; his aire and
widowhood, than to marry a man of her own
Aire without money: and he nrofesncd orreat
rgard and attuchment for her as a pioux,
devoted girl, and a member ot the same
church with himself; that finally she accepted
nis t ner, and as ne was very urgent to bare
the marriage take place at ouce, immediately
made her preparations therefor, and com
menced purchusinp: articles with which to
furnish the house and her wardrobe; that he
made ner presents or a gold watch and a
wedding ring, aud was having a new house
built to live ra; that at the exoiration of sev
eral months defendant told plaintiff he had
changed his mind, and wished her to release
mm: that when asked for bis reason, he said

and thus he finally left her, that eight mouths

bouse another wife, who a year or two before
had been divorced from a former husband.
The defendant, admitting the contract and
the breach of it as charged, and the plaintiffs
excellent character, contended that plaintiff
could have no object in marrying a man of
nis years, wno was last verging npon old age,
and whom she would have been obliged to
taae euro oi ann nurse during nis decline;
that bIio could have made more money in
nursing at a hospital; and that therefore it
was a bad bargain for her, and no injury but
rather a beneht to be released from it. The
jury, after being out less than an hour, re
turned a verdict tor tbe puuutitt, damages

unable to make any alarm, the fiend placed a
hot iron from the stove upon her breast, and
told her that they had come for money which
they had missed on the previous visit, and
threatened to kill her, at tho same time bran
dishing a knife and cutting off some of her
hair. Just at this moment, a colored mau
approached the bouse, when they took the
alarm and rode off. Mrs. Riday is said to ha
considerably burnt from the hot iron upon
her bare breast, and from this and other inju

being rather a delicate woman, has since
been lying in a critical condition. .,
Another Brutal Prize Fight—Eighty-three
On 1 Tuesday morning, soon after four
o'clock, a bloody prize fieht came off in In

oilier iross, , tus priuuiueua, aaye bun x,uu-
isville CWrier, were Robert Rollins, alias
Flying Dutchman, and John Welch, the Wild
Irishman, from New Orleans. The latter had
sent a formal challenge to the former to meet
and fight him a pitched battle in accordance
with the rules of the London ring, for what
ever purse of money could be made up, or for
a whiff of a cigar, and pure lovo of tho sport.
Tho challenge was promptly accepted by
Flying Dutchman, who agreed to meet and
fight him to see who was the best man. lie
waa seconded by Jack Sanders, the London
Pet, and Welch was groomed by Dublin
Tricks No. 2. They met across the river and
fought eighty-three rouuds, the Flying
Dutchman proving to be the conqueror in
one hour and fifty-seven minutes. . His
weight was one hundred and sixty-six
pounds, while the other pulled down one
hundred and seventy-one. Neither was iu
good condition, but made a hard and bloody
fight. 1 The Flying Dutchman claimed the
first blood, and Welch made the first knock
down. In fact he had the best of it in the
first fifteen rounds, flooring the Dutchman
every time, and battering nis face awfully.
The latter in turn sent the Wild Irishman to
grass forty-seven times, inflicting terrible
body blows, and after the eighty-three rounds
Welsh refuged to again come to time, and
Rollins was declared the victor. The parties
are reposing on their wounds at Portland.

The Italian Opera In Russia—The Lyric
Theater at St. Petersburg.
e St. Petersburg correspondent of the
New York Herald writes In a recent letter
The great square, in the midst of which the
theater is located, is filling rapidly with
sleighs and carriages. The mounted police,
with shining helmets tod clanking swords,
are on duty, regulating the arrival and de
parture of vehicles, and all goes on In order.
The approaches to the theater are well lighted,
and tbe capacious entrances are all in active
demand. We pars in and along a corridor,
deposit our cloaks, Ac, With an - attendant,
receive a ticket and pay twenty faopeks. In
the theaters here yon are not allowed to take
your overcoat or shoes in the boxes or upon
the floor of tbe theater; ante-rooms and at
tendants are provided for their safety. The
theaters are all warmed to a comfortable de
grce, and summer reigns within, though win
ter snows without. The operas are well aU
tended, and as a general rnle if you do not
procure your ticket a day or two In advance
you may have to take a very high seat or re
turn to your lodgings. 1 Ours bad been inkto
the day before, arm-chairs in tho parquette,
for which two rubles were peid--one dollar
and 4 half. The crowd is pushing us on all
sides while we are depositing our coats, and
therefore let us escape from the jam as soon
as possible. We enter by a narrow side door,
which, is out of all reasonable proportion with
the grandeur of the houBe. ' ...
The- scene is very brilliant; upon a red
ground (the parquette) rise five tiers of boxes,
without a pillar, column or support to break
the oircle or obstruct the view. The panel
ings, chaste and simple, with gold and ma
roon; one vast circular chandelier la the cen
ter of the dome gives light to tbe whole
house, though there are small chandeliers
along tbe foot boards of the boxes, which are
lighted ou great occasions more for show
than of necessity. The Emperor's box occu
pies the center of the first row of boxes, and
is richly draped with damasks it was unoc
cupied. The form of the houee is as that of
an egg laying npon its side, with the little
end cut off next the stage. It has a very
pleasing effect, the view of tbe stage being
good from all parts with one exception the
parquette is too flat, and a short man is at the
mercy of his tall neighbor in front; the seats,
though, are good spring cushioned arm chairs
of good size, though a little close between
the ranks of rows. The utmost decorum pre
vails, every body is well dressed, there is no
loud talking to disturb the effect of tbe music,
and for propriety and good breeding one
would have to go much further North, and
immeasurably further South, to And its peer.
No cat-calls, whistling or boisterous noises
are allowed, and upon the least impropriety
the culprit is quickly walked out. At the
top of the center aisle, immediately below tbe
Emperor's box, stands a helmeted guard;
the box waiters and placemen are in livery,
while two soldiers, armed and equipped, keep
guard at the entrance ot tbe emperor s box.
The floor of the house is not carpeted, and I
have yet to observe the first person to hawk
and spit in a St. Petersburg Theater. Tobacco
is not ohewed or eaten in Russia, and smoking
is only allowed in the coffee-rooms. The
Bolihoy Theater will seat probably fifteen
hundred or two thousand: I believe it is
against the rule to allow persons to stand in
tne passages or lobbies in tact, properly
speaking, there are ' no lobbies. The par-
Suette is closed, except very small entrance
oorsj while the boxes open upon the cor
ridors, eacn naving a door. These are' Kept
closed by tbe attendants, and preclude Btand
Iniroom. Aeutn, no tickets are demanded
at tbe entrance, and you may go in and pass
along the corridors and into the saloons,
without entering tbe house. But again, these
are Imperial institutions, and are not prob
ably built on the plan best adapted to the
largest receipts. .
The Supreme Purpose of Men.
Henry Ward Beecher, in a recent sermon,
remarked: ' 1
We see Supreme purposes which men havo
formed running through their whole career
In this world. A young man means to lie a
civil engineer. That is the thing to which
bis mind is made up; not his father's mind,
perhaps, but his. He feels his adaptation to
that colling, and his drawings toward it. Ho
1b young, forgetful, inexporicnced, accessible
to youthful sympathies, and is frequently
drawn aside from his life purpose. : To-day he
attends a picnic. Next week he devotes a
day to some other excursion. Occasionally
he loses a day in consequence of fatigue
caused by overaction. Thus there is a link
knocked out of the chain of this week,-and
link knocked out of the chain of that week.
And in the course of the summer he takes a
whole, week, or a fortnight, out of that pur
pose, i Yet, there is the thing in his mind,
whether he sleeps or .wakes. If you had
asked him a month ago what be meant to be
in life, he would have replied, "I mean to be
a civil engineer." . And if you ask him to-day
what has been the tendency of his lite, he will
say, "1 havs been preparing myself to be
civil engineer." Ii he waits and does noth
ing, tbe reason is that he wants an opportu
nity to carry out his purpose. ' That purpose
governs his course, and he will not engage in
anything that would conflict with It.
These generic purposes in the soul are like
those great invisible laws of nature, whose
effects are seen in tbe moving- of the heav
enly bodies, in the falling of the pebble-stone,
in all the various changes which natural ob
jects undergo. When a man has formed in
Ins mind a great sovereign purpose, it governs
his conduct, as a law of nature governs tbe
operation of physical things.' ' -i

At a meeting of the New York Historical
Society, held the other evening, Dr. Bacon
stated as a singular fact worthy of attention,
that Americans never groan when wounded
in battle. Major General Gains had told him
this, and said that ho had heard so from Gen.
Stark and other generals of the Revolution.
Tbey always knew when there wers screams

put in print; be thought the same power of
enduring pain without auy external mani

had descended to their successors in the

The Constitutional Convention.
TWO BALLOTS FOR PRESIDENT.
JOHN BELL NOMINATED.
[Special Dispatches to the New York Press.]
BaltiuorS, May 9. The croceedlntrs of
tue convention nave tnus tar been harmoni
ous. Tbe Houston men desired a ballot to
night; they are more numerous than the
supporters of any other candidate. Mr. Bell
ia second. The contest between them is ani
mated. Mr. McLean will have some votes,
but all idea of nominating him, or any one
else with reference to Chicago, is dropped.
Two-tniras or the Itew rone deieiratton
are for Mr. Houston. They are for Mr.
Everett for Vice President. The Pennsyl
vania delegation is divided between Messrs.
Bell and Houston; so is the South generally,
Kentucky being unanimous for Houston. It
is predicted that he will be nominated at an
early stage of the balloting..
Nobody is for Botts. The attempt to bring
him forward failed.
10:30 P. M. The frfendB of Messrs. Bell and
McLean are encouraged by diversions from
Mr. Houston, whose supporters are somewhat
alarmed at the propoced' introduction of a
platform, having unanimously agreed to re
port the Union, the Constitution and tbe en
forcement of tbe laws as a platform. It is
expected that the Convention will be satis

PROCEEDINGS THIS MORNING.
BaltimorS, May 10. The Convention met
at ten o'clock. The Chair presented a letter
from Judge Chambers, of Maryland, express
ing regret at not being able to attend, and
hoping that a wise and patriotic result would
be attained. Also a telegram from Wash
ington from Colonel Hayes Wouck, of New
York, urging the Constitution and Washing
ton's Farewell Address as a sufficient plat
form. 1 .....

require that they should recognize no policy
or principles but those resting on the broad

representatives ot the Constitutional and

principles, thus affording security at home
and abroad, and secure tbe blessings of liberty
to thomselves and posterity.
Adopted by acclamation. '
' They reported another resolution that each
State should determine for itself the mode of
voting, whether by unit or otherwise. This
excited considerable discussion, tbe minorities
of delegations contending that its adoption
would place them at the mercy of the majori
ties, and thus stifle the expression of their
individual preferences. '
Mr. Warner, of Massachusetts, said he cams
here to express the sentiments of his con
stituents. The resolution reported from the commit
tee was one of the bold party tricks to place
the minorities under tbe control of tbe major
ities. ' If bis State had instructed for a par
ticular man, he would obey the instruction,
but none such had been given, and he desired
that the delegates should vote in their indi
vidual capacity. . .
Mr. Perree. of. Maryland, denied that the
committee had any intention of perpetrating
party tricks. It was a mere question of ex
pediency, lie tnougot mere waa no inten
tion to smother the voice of the minority! in

that every vote should be allowed to indicate

Mr. Partridge, of Mississippi, sustained the
report of the committee. The question was
whether the delegations should determine
how the voting was to be done, or whether
tbe Convention would do their best to leave
it to the delegations. . .....

each district to have its rote, whether for

any attempt to silence the voice of the mi
norities. Mr. Stevens, of N. advocated
the voting by districts, and opposed any at
tempt to silence the voice of the minority.
Mr. Stevens, of N. Y, offered an amend
ment that each delegation be entitled to one
Mr. Johnson offered an amendment that
each district be entitled to one vote.
Mr. Comegys, . of Del., said bis State had
twenty-one Congressional Districts, and the
adoption of that resolution would deprive
that State of two votes.
Mr. Hill, of Georgia; advocated the resolu
tion of tbe Committee.
Mr. Brooks, of N. Y, denied that he had
any intention to stifle the voice of ths minor
ities when he offered the previous question
the resolution of the Committee, that each
State at large and each district be entitled to
one vote. i .
Mr. Watson offered a proviso that no dele
gate be deprived of his individual rote with
out his consent.
Mr. Brooks accepted this amendment and
withdrew his proviso.
J, A. Rockwell, of .ConnHf)bposed allow
ing States not fully represented to cast the
entire vote of the State: ' They should only
vote for districts that were represented,
Mr. Murphy, of New York, offered a sub
stitute that each State be entitled to as many
votes as she has Senators and Representa
tives in Congress, and that each delegate be
entitled to one vote.
After settling this question, the balloting
was commenced, and resulted as follows:
