Fertile KtiRlUli Clmniplninhlp , Nnw Y'IIIK , Fob. 5. vTo the Sporting Editor of THE . 0 NOCKED out in throe hour * was the story of the Uroorao-Ormo bat > tie. The same year that Nat LauRham Oofoated Tom Say- crs , Nat's con- querorllarryOrmo , thrbw down tlio gauntlet to Harry IJroomc , the then champion , for Ji'iOO nnd the chnmplonsblp of England , Two years before the Tlpton Slasher lost the championship to Droomo by hitting Harry a foul'blow. Ormo boat Anron Jones In 1S49 nftor a Rama battle of two hours and forty- ilvo minutes and again In 1S52 , and Lnnghitm in isr.i. liroomo was n flno built young follow ; ho Mood two and a half Inches over Ormo , ho had a Hamait nose nnd rather a hatchet face ; In sclonco.ho wn A 1 and was a good wrest ler and good loft-handod fighter , lie was rather too lloshy , but showed a good muscu lar development , nnd bis attitude as ho toed the mark was perfection ; his weight * Was about 180 pounds , nnd both men were 20 years. Ormo WAS snid to bo a very cjulot follow who T novnr bragged about bli llstic nbHlUea ; in height ho was barely Ilvo feet olght , nnd was of a dark gypsy blown com plexion : bU shoulder * were Unusually broad and powerful looking , n perfect bull nock , n broad deep ohost covered with co.irso black hair , long thick muscular nrms , and a pair of legs fit to support an Atlas ; his weight was 102 pounds. The first round lasted eight minutes , and at once showed tbo sooctators that Ormo was much bettor on his logs and more clover at stopping than the nubllo had glvon him credit for. In the fourth round Ormo planted his right with torrlllo force thrco times on Uroomo's libs , nnd received heavy spunKs In rolum On the right eye nnd month , drawing more clnrot , and in the end as Ormo lunged out with his right' bis head came forward and Brooino administered a tnrrillc upper cut on the mas If which doubled him up completely. Orme turned round and gradually fell to the ground. It was thought to bo all up , but Ormo bolng In good condition quickly rallied. The next round lasted sixteen minutes and was a tremendous one. Ormo battered away with bis right on the ribs and caused Broomo to straw himself up with intense pain. Ho also caught Broomo a tremendous hit on tbo left eye brow with his right , In flicting a deep perpendicular cut and draw- 1 ing-tbe ruby In torrenU. After some rat tling exchanges Ormo was down amidst the vociferous cheers nf his friends , who consid ered that in this round bo had Infinitely the best of the hitting. The eighth round lasted twelve minutes , uud tbo Hfth was a desper ate ono. At tbo tinish heavy bits \voro ex changed left and right and in tbo end Ormo caupttt Broomo full on the point of his conk drawing the clarot'm urolusion and kuocknlg the oharapion off bis legs. First knock down ' tbelug uXvurdcd to Ormo amidst loud ohei'rs. 'Ormo continued to batter away at the ribs ' nll.throiiRh tho. contest , while Broomo plant' ( id straight , left banners on the dial. At length in tbo thirty -first round it became evident - dent ' that thoueh Ormo wa tolerably strong o'n bis pins , he was nearly blind and tremen dously punished about tbo head. Ho led off wildly , but of course was out o distance , Liroomo then want to him ant nilnlstored the coup do grace , in tbo shape o a gentle tap on the nose , and tbo bravo fol low wont to earth ulmost insensible. Tom Bayers throw up the sponge , and Harrv Hroomo was proclaimed the victor , and stil champion ol England , amldac the cheers o bin friends. The battle lasted exactly iw hours and eighteen minutes , and was tb 1 best championship fight that nod taken plac for yours , in fact it was the tlrst ono i many years that was not decided by a fou The rounUs often aimed in a long struggl for the tall , which Brcomo who was an ex port wrestler , generally gained. The editor of Dell tn the remarKs said ISroomo bad lost none of his scientific uc quirements in straight delivery nnd wrest ling , but bo was extremely awkward li getting out of dillluultios , instead of Jumping back , tbo usual practice of pugilists , hi turned tall and ran round tbo ring , bo sun Ormo had had raoro dash ncd devil In him he might have followed him up and pupperei him On the back. "With this glorious defeat closed the ring ( career of tno gallant Orme. He was fo many yours lanulord of the ' 'Juno Shore" in Saorodlth. Both Paddock and Pouisoi tried to got on a match with him , but Ilurr ; foupd his bnsmoss too prolltable to leave ant risk his fortune in tbo ring. He died on the Oth of June , 1801 of gastilc fever and win burled in Abuoy cemetery. Harry Broomo also became a publican and opened a house In Portsmouth nnd waxed fat and corpulent , in fact became nearly as lustv an John L. It was thought bo hud retired , but wbon tbo to now championship boll was made , tbo one that Savers won and Muco now has * "Harry declared that ho was tbo most en titled to It , because tbe candidates for tbo championship bad all been beaten by htm or by men tuat ho had beaten. " Tbo old Tipton it was thought bad retired , but ho an nounced hU intention of detying all comers. Droorae forfeited jU)5 to Tipton. Anron Jones 70 , und Tom Paddock 80 , BO It looKed ns if tbe Old Slasher was going to bavo a life bo lease of tbo championship. Subsequently Paddock and Hroomo had some words , which ended lu a contest In 1850. Both man had in nint the Tipton and It was thought Broomo or made the most oroaltiiblo performance , so ho was tbo fuvorlto lu the betting at two to one , but tbo knowing ones were All fooled. The ruddy and liery Paddock was in splendid condition and was full of dash and devil. Brooma's tollows were soon in motion and tie puffed like a grampus. Paddock came on tilttlng out viciously , and whenever Broomo closed for the fall Tom peppered away with Doth hands until bo had to lot go. . Finally Harry , whogiow weaker every round , was kuocliod out of tlmo at tun end ot an hour , and was unubla to return tn London with tbe train. Poddorlc was as strong in wind and limb us at tbu beginning aud nhowcd up at all tbo principal sporting houses the same night. That was poor Harry's last battle , after bi'lnf the popular pugilistic idol of the sport ing swells , to add to hu muory , hovas dUgustea when the middleweight Bayers be * can en mo champion in 1857. The saloon business nud and luxurious Jiving took all tbo steel u out of Broouie , Ho said he could Ing not train without weakening on , no- count of bis fat nnd corpulency. a If big Ben Gaunt was disgusted at the chain- the plo-ship und tba belt being worn by such a Ilttle-un , Hroome was still more so. Harry wus insanely jealous of Bajers. He knew that although ho and Savors \vuro the sumo PKO , boiu more stale , so ho .triad to have Tom overthrown by bringing out Bill Deujt- the inln and Aaron Jones. But llttlo Tom held bin own , notwithstanding Uroomo's teaching for und Nat Lan ham's uud Boudigo's trainln" tbo Broome's cup of bitterness was full who. . for Haycra defeated Broome's conqueror. Pad dock , In It&i. Harry afterword * wrote a letter - tor to Heonan asking him to mauo bis uouio bis homo and ho would help him a'.l bo could It ngaiusttiayun. T. C. K. The Spring M Already there is a manifest uneasiness us - rnony tbo sportsmen. Wild geese have boon seen flying north at diver * times durlug the post tea days , which fact aloao lj ample In ers accounting for the roulessuoss of tboso who love to gn allcld with dog and gun. At every rendezvous wboro thli class oongregatos o' t eyur.ings , the ouo topic of discussion uow la bo order is the tpriujr hooting , when will it commence , whnt will lljamount to nnd how long continue ! The blnnd weather of a few days sincetoo , had an exhilarating effect upon the spirits nnd Imagination of men who shoot , and acted Illto n lode stone In drawing them together nnd opening up tholr lloqulstical batteries. The hunters moon also rltloi the evening sky Hko a silvery canoe , a never falling nugurv of tbo near npproncti of tbo shooting.season , So there Is abundant grounds tor the onvor anticipation of the sportsmen. Anxiously thev nwnlt tbo vor- nnl piping of the bntrochlsn family from Iho lowlands nnd swnmps , a sure sign thnt the frost Is leaving the ground nnd that balmr wenlhor may beoxpectod. . Anxiously they nwnit the time when river , marsh nnd chan nel , scarcely distinguishable now ns they lay locked In their fetters of lea and snow , will peep forth with eves of blue nnd break into sheeny ripples 'noath the breath of the Roulhorn winds ; when the robin sounds bis sweet but homely melody 'mitlst the red twlgtred mnplos In the kholtorod coves ; when the saucy Jay scolds at every passing broo/e ; when tno pintail's wing cuts the nir with Its sibilant wblstlo. when the quack of the mal lard echoes through the timber and the bonk of the Canada resounds upon the trenchant nlr. nlr.These These nro the concomitants thnt makes the tportsmnn's existence a Joy nnd n dream , the sights nnd sounds that proclaim nnolhor spring Is nwnkonlng , and that It will shortly bo time for blin to renew his lease on life , nmidst the bursting beauties of foroit , field nnd stream. Shortly , .ow sny one brief month hence nnd tboso anticipated glories will bo rcnllzod , nnd not to DO dolnyud by reason of nny Inok of preparation , the gunners nro busy every- whoro. The fnvorlto old Le Fever Is un socked , the murzlo uncorked , n searching glnnce taken through the polished barrels , the break tried , nud then brought to the shoulder und held ngnln nnd for the hun dredth ttmo repented upon some Imaginary swiftly Hying cnnvasback , roadhoud or wldtrcon. Then with n sleh It Is slipped back Into the case , nnd the hunting suit nnd wndors hauled forth nnd carefully Inspected. Everything in this line found to bo O. 1C. , a trip Is mouo.to shod or stable where the boat nnd decoys nro scored nnd they are searchIngly - Ingly looked over and felt of ; o cherry call to old "Don , " chained lo bis kcnnol near by , , follows , but tlasplto tbo dog's eager upsprlnglng , and tbo action of oars and tall , bo passes on out the gnto nnd down town to counler.dcsk or ofllce , with n heart lighter and moro buoyant for all thoos tntlo thoughts these various in an oeuvres give rjso to. But to speak of the spring season Itself , stripped of til poetical sentiment. If this woatcr softens up u bttgood wild fowl shoot ing inav bo looked for as oarlv i s the tlrst week In March , for on the warm winds , uftur the first bard spring rain , the pintails our Initial visitorswill comaup , from their sunny southern haunts In myriads , a llttlo Innk nnd loan from tbolr long Journey , yet neverthe less affording the best of practice for the ambitious sportsmen. In tbo springtime they uro moro plentiful than nny other species of the duck lamtly , especially on these western grounds. They nro a beautiful bird , very iwlft of wing , but not nn overly good table jird. They Jly high , maintaining nn incessant whistling nnd duell ing ns they pass , like .graceful shadows , through tbo icay , morning air , but under favorable conditions decoy splendidly. They nro grda.t friends of the mallard nnd often travel and feed with him. nnd nfter the snows have molted and the backwater on the plains nffords thorn facili ties for rest and food , great sport is to bo bad north of Clarks , at Valley , Fremont , tn Cherry couuty nnd numberless other well known resorts. , The can vnssback , too , Is one of our earliest spring visitors , as ice and sleet , wind and snow , and pestltoroui xvoather of all kinds seem to bo bis borthold , nnd It takes a handy nnd crafty hunter to make much of n bag these days , on any grounds or any waters. Tbo canvusbnck U the mostly prized gniiio bird in tbo world , although It requires tbo most finished epicure to distinguish much superiority in taste or ilavor overa , well roasted mallard or redhead. Much of the cnnvassbaok's , vaunted excellence over his teal. Is puicly imaginary , still bo Is un doubtedly u superior * bird tn them nil. They arq not only the scarcest of the wbojo duck family , "but the quickest , in . the .air , the wariest , hardest to 'decoy and most difficult to kin. Occasionally on good feeding grounds they will decoy readily to a stool of their own species or of redheads , but this is the exception to the rule , aud a scratch bird or two is as much as uny gunner can expect on most of tbo waters in this'v'.cinity. I shot ono afternoon nt ICoshkononc In T8 over a stool of 100 decovs and bagged rocty-ono birds , which ts the best canvas back shooting I over bad. At Lugenbeel this full , notwith standing tbo feed was excellent , but flvo birds foil to four guns In four days' shoot- Ing. However , they are malnlv n spring bird horo.nnd It la a rare thing to accomplish anything wifn them In the" fall. After thu pintails , mallards and canvasbacks - backs , nnd frcuncntly with them , comes tbo redhead , then bluobllls'and blackheads , then the widgeon , leal , buttoroall golden eye , spoonbill andy ethers , all strangling in , In greater or lessor numbers all through the month of March and well into April , the teal and mallard often llngor- ing until.sutumoc burst upon us in its fullest fervor. Some few birds nest and brood in and about our local waters , ' but the nmln body continue * on to the wild and un broken fastnesses around Hudson's and Ballln's bays , whcro they roar tholr families in so- cn'ritv from molestation at tbo hands of man , . nna his bammerlcss. _ Of all wild fo.vi In this region , the mallard Anas Boscbas ) U fho most familiar , the most highly priced , and affords tbo host sport. An old drake , In the full blazonry of bis re splendent plumage , Is a royal bird indeed , and when hanging side by side with his mate , the rufous colored hou , make * a plo- turo of bcuutythnt would bo bard to sur pass that is in thi > eyes of one who loves nature as all gonulno sportsmen do. How ever , tbo graces of the mallard , bis tooth- Bomo odlblo qualities , and habits and characteristics are so tvell known all intelligent local gunners , It would scorn Ilko adding surplusage to animadvert on them hero. Suftlco It to nay , they ap preach nearer the domestic duck than any of tbu wild fowl family , decoy more nudity and afford finer sport than any bird that cleaves the air. The geese shooting will open up cvoti earlier than thu. duck shooting , for already the advance guard of the honkers'columns buvo put in nn appearance , and will shortly " followed by the main body. Just yet awhile It would bo foolhardy to go niter them , as tbo lakes and rivers are yet bound Ice , uud the birds could not bo approached decoded. The snipe shooting rarely begins before on tbo 15th of April , but when ltdoos conio , ranks only second to the wild few | sbootlng , ( Urtho Oltl Time Trill * . Ono of tbo munv reforms tbo now Western league will put into operation this year , is tbat both teams shall dross upon the local grounds , and thus do away with the expense necessary in coiwoylng the visiting team in uniform from tholr hotel to tbo park. This season the manager will simply provide bis men with car fnro aim fix the hour when they are to show up. This rule originated with the big league , In which it will prove bcnetlclul In a nuincur of ways , but I hardly think U ono of the needed changes in this league. In tboso new western cities there tc co possible advertisement so catcby effective as n uniformed ball team u-top tally-ho coach or omnibuss pass- through the streets on their way to the game. Evoryuody has tlmo for a halt and look at the passing ball playeri , wbilo to small boy there Is no more exhilarating Il. ! Bight unless it bo a circus par.ido. They will follow the vehicle for blocks mailing tbo woluln ring with tbolr shouts of derision or admiration. Just a ; thu spirit moves them. Unquestionably this is on advertisement of game for tbe day , unequalledas far ns it uro goes , and much more than offsets the expense the conveyance. And than It wa * ono of old day features of the great game , aud this sake alone should ) ba preserved , for gradually they are disappearing and soon tbo sport will bo stripped of all tbo old tlmo preliminary frills that once made so dear. In the big cities , like Now York , Boston , Brooklyn , Philadelphia , Cincinnati , Chicago and tbo balance of the major league , tbe doing away with this lux a uriant ride to the ball parks is all well enough off the nioro announcement of tbo game in the newspapers Is all the advertisement neces sary. 'I hen tbe sight of a gang of ballplay , 'generally a loud crowd they are , too , Iho togged out to ( trlpoU wammusas and kulck- erbootcers posing , nud promenading in the old oftlco and about tbe corridors of the hotels Is aouo away with. The men are quietly pre sented with tiioir little car faro , and told to on baud promptly at whatever hour the City manager docldton , all ot which Is very dls * leoa pustlng and very niggardly to the ball player , who comas about ns nenr being n pork as anything in human mold. Thai Is , a ma jority of thorn. . No Ilolllnc J ntn no Illci. ? Some of the boso ball patrons , the stripe who never put a dollar Into the came , nro criticising the now western longuos salary limit , which U $13,000. They sny that It U too low , nnd that only inferior teams can bo soourcd nt thcso figures. That Is where they are mistaken nnd shows lust how llttlo they understand the situation. It Is n proverblnl fact that ball plavcri do not like work , nd rnthor than go nt It for n livelihood they will do almost nnvthlng else lot the revenue bo what It may. To play ball Is tbo ono nmbltlon of their lives , nnd before tbo coming season wanes , there will bo n good many tender his services for his bonrd. $1,000 per man Is n much 0.1 tbor are worth to the western loiiguo , lot them bo who they may , anil while the offer ot such n sum n .yewr ago would hnvo thrown the majority of the players Into n cataleptic fit , now they will jump nt It liken hungry trout ntnn April grasshopper , nnd a largo porcoutago of them get loft at that. The most that can possibly bu payed a slnglo player in tills association this year U $1AX ! > , nnd it will bo proclom few who receive - coivo this sum. The lowest that n player will rccoivo will bo $750 and It Is snfo to snv that each loam will contnln sev eral I'M ) men. It is A sail commentary on the tnct nnd wisdom of the profession , that Midi a cut has boon mnda possible , when but a few months since the nvorago bnll plavor de manded as much In advance as ho will now receive fat the whola season.

To the Sporting Editor of TUB BEB : I sco by BEI : that there is a suftlclont number of cities to make a tlrst class circuit , anxious for a stnto league , providing the salary limit Is not 190 hign. This is an important matter , but of course will bo satisfactorily arranged at a general meeting , if ono U held. Omaha is the only city that could afford lo pay any thing like a high salary , but I ao not think she will go beyond any limit established nt n meeting , that is If sbo comes in the leagtio , which is doubtful in case of a now Western louguoclub. I sco some of the cities''men tion Omahu as a good place for the state league mooting , but I do not. ,1 think it should bo at a moro central point , sav Colum bus , Hastings or Beatrice. I would urge action on the part of Hastings , Kearney , Fremont , Beatrice and other cities , as there isn't much moro ttmo to spare.

Among several other ruusous Jar writing his book tbo general says wns thntho desired to correct much of the wrong-done to hlmsulf by a prejudiced misrepresentation of facts nnd circumstances as to his acts In the ser vice of this country. Hu also adds that Wherever facts nro not out that ha has In tended thai It should bo dona with literal and exact accuracy. Ho further stains ns to hU porsonul acts , and doings nnd omissions that ho lias "In naught oxtommted , " but tbat ho has reserved to himself the privilege of ox- plululng and exhibiting his motives and feel ings.

In writing of her ho says : "My wife , with a devotion quitn unparalleled , guv a mo tier support by accompanying me , at my earnest , wish , In every expedition lu the war of the rebellion , nnd made for mo a homo whorovur I was stationed in com mand. " It. appears that she bravely suffered great privations und hardships In order to bo with her busband during tboso troublous times. Tbo general was apparently n natural-born politician und too * gru.it Interest In political questions at the tirno ho cast tils lirst vote. "From my earliest youth , " ho retimilcs , "I bad boon taught to believe In democracy , of which Jefferson was tbu apostle , and to abhor federalism , of which Hamilton was tbo ex ponent , " His llrst political notion was an endeavor to procure from tbo Massachusetts legislature an enactment making ton haul's a day's work In manufacturing employments and bo gives a very graphic description of bis struggles In this direction. At tlio ago of 111 General Butler was elected a member of the houso'of representatives of Massachu setts and took a very active part In ull the momentous issues that were agitating the people ot that time. Ho was always utterly opposed to knownotbingism and fought it from start to tinlsh. Ho gives some historical data regarding tbe rise of tbo free soil party and tbe fore shadowing of secession. Ho also gives an explatidlton of his voting for Jefferson Davis and tells us something about Horace Ureoley as a secessionist , His book is brimful of amusing incidents , showing that the author was n man who tborougblv appreciated a joko. vVhilo sta tioned at Annapolis ho was visited bv Lieu tenant Colonel Keyos , who introduced himself as a member of General Scott's staff and made himself very ofllclous in giving the general Instructions in tno art of war , and frequently took occasion do so in tbo presence ot uny distinguished man who happened to call on the general. Butler found out tbat ICeycs bud no author ity for dolnjr this , so tbat when Koyos next undertook to give him some instructions , the general led him on to give the full details of ttio qualltloatlon necessary tu make a good ofllcor , listening with great gravity and ap parent Interest , Senator Wilson of Massa chusetts also being present , and tlion bo asked Keyes : "lo you think of any other quallllcatlons besides those you have described lo mo aud Ibo senator ! " "No , " w ld ho. ' , ! don't think of anything Hint I need to add. " Well , " 1 said , "colonel , I think there Is one tuinpr ruoro that is necessary which you Is have not named and which you evidently don't know anything a bout. " "Ah , general , whtttis that !

Gcod morning , sir. " < A funny little incident occurred with re gard to a Connecticut regiment tbe account which is worth reproducing in Butler's : own language : : "I never bad any serious trouble with the Ninth Connecticut , " ho says. "They would n i a lllllo liquor , but thai was done vary In geniously. Generally my olllccn of tbo guard found them out. Ono ot their tricks , ' romomoor , was very curious. A great the tin portly woman used to come In to see them and they would gather about her chatting evidently In perfect accord. But the 111 cor of the guard observed that ono or two of who stood behind her scorned to bavo their cur. heads bowed down. An Investigation icm showed him that our visitor had a very con and . siderable sized ruboOr tube wound ull around nnss person under her dress. This tuba had olTe boon tilled with liquor , and wat , provided The with a faucet which was concealed under com capo , and for a consideration anybody tiKi could take a pull at it long anough to got a Mot good drinU.

' " Tbo women of Now Orleans acted very In- sullinuly toward the ottlcors of the United ( on States unny , but General Butler was gener inoi a mutch for them , as will bo soon from Who following sample : drn "Thero ware 11 vo or six women loaning Urn u balcony on ono occasion , " bo relates , "when 1 was riding along qulto near it , with I ofllccr only between me und balcony , I was face to the ' front nnd , of course , people turned Mr to sea mo more or loss as I went through radl streets.
