The latest Intolllffcnco nnont the fit-cat wind jamming match liotwccn Clmrllo Mltclicll and Jom Corbott li o the oflcct tlint this precious pair of worthies have at last agreed to ndjiiit their differences In the lihtoilc arena at Now Orleans for the paltry sum of 20,000. They mluht Just as well agree to pull off tlio affair at Philadelphia , KoUomo , Yip- Blluiitl or Knlnmnroo. Olio place Is nt avail- nblo as the other , and the advertisement would bo Just as effective and the agreement just as binding. The truth of the matter Is the great commonwealth of tbo United States Is surfeited Ith tbo bruiser , and tbcro Is about ixs much fhonca of this alleged International battle belnf * fought under the auspices of nny Incorporated club lu this country as tbero Is that It will snow In hades on the Fourth of July. From the start 1 took no stock In the Mltchcll-Uorhctt light , as all my roadc'rs will bear mo out , out 1 did say thai In case I , was mtstakon and the big mill did como off , that it could only l > o In Now Orleans oren on the turf. It was not long after this declaration , however , until tbo clergy of the Crescent City mndo nn onslaught on the cohorts of Flstlana , and the result was to blot out the last hope of over again witnessing anything liito either ono of the previous carnivals within the confines of the Pelican Bttito. Consequently 1 included Now Orluiins in my litt of interdicted cities. Now Governor Foster comes out Hat Coo toil tuul says that if there Is any power on earth thut will prevent the Mttehcll-Corbett light from taking plncu In the metropolis of L.oulManu. thut it will bo invoked and that the parties who nro now presuming to negotiate for the same might as well desist 11 rat us last. In this connection the States says editorially : Ninctccn-twcntl'iths of the brutes who make WK money by prlzo fighting , and wtiom thu country disgraces itself by lifting into national notoriety , indeed , In , after a fashion , apotheosizing , arc personal cowards : men utterly destitute of that uoblo and generous spirit which h'ros tho'beart of a truly bravo man , who is over ready to stake his life in Uo'cnso of his honor orof the wronged. Nor is this to bo said only of modern prize lighters. It is stated by ull the historians that the prizci lighters who took part in the Grecian mid liomau games wcro notoriously unlit for soldiers , being goncr.illy dovold of the courage to encounter the dangers of the battlelleld. AnU iot , it is the proud distinction of Now Orleans that , of late years , she ' bus bocoino the arena wherein these creatures moot to engage in their briituLcontests. Wo trust , however , the hist of these dc- pruvod and disgusting exhibitions has been witnessed hero. The legislature of I utsi- ana should enact a most stringent law against prlzo lighting , and ono that the Now Orleans clubs , as they cull thcmsnlvos , cannot ovudo under the pretcnso that they are giving glove contests ; and , in the iner.ntinio , no good citizen of Now Orleans should give his countenance to aiy future cxhloltlons of this sort that mf > y take place in a Now Orleans arena. " IVhllotho above goes to sho.v how the great "moral engines" of Now Orleans .stand on the question , thoj attitude of the States is quite funny. I well remember the ultfht of the Sullivan-Corbott light , and how 1 mut at the ring side the whole stuff of the States from the proprietor and editor down to tbo counting-room boy in fact , every Hv- Inc soul connected with the shop , but an extra paid force , who remained at the oflico for the purpose of netting out the very full and very complete extra inidnicht edition , which they had on the streets In Jess than ten minutes after the BIp i > oliow hit the sands for the last time. For one , and tlioro are n whole lot of { rood people in Now Or leans who will endorse what I s y , I think the Olympic club has done incalculably moro good for Now Orleans than n number of other institutions which the States has so capably ehumplonrd In the past , and whoso memory it still reveres. I sco that the Motropole club of Provi dence Is endeavoring to match Hilly Smith and Tommy Kyun , and notwithstanding there Is little moro tliun cigarette niouoy in the purse , it , looks as If It might bo a fro Uyan Is willing , in fact , moro than willing , as ho agrees to .light the Mysterious for trulnlng expenses , It nothing better Is forthcoming , but Smith demurs. Ilo freshly claims that ho is a card second to Mono , and must have the ducats or ho uon't light. See ! Boston "Billy , however , found himself in a position a few days ago where ho had to light , notwithstanding the faet that tncro wasn't oven 11 beer insight. Ho and Dick O'Brien , the Boston welter , with whom was as good us matched while In this city it year airo , mot on Washington street ana bcguu discussing their chances of faoinc cai-h other In the ring. What grow out of this discussion h best told in the following clipping from a Now York paper which ft friend enclosed In a loiter to mo : "As usual , Smith blustered and used profane language and applied some Indcuont opi- thotH to O'Brien and aroused the lattor's Ire O'Brien then started in to chustiso Smith and , according to eye witnesses , succeeded admirably , IIu punched the "Mysterious" ono to a ( .tandstlll , closing ono oyo.'and severely cutting Smith's mouth. The latter then , soil isubsorlcil. bit Q'Brlen "on the neck. Tl.o affair was disgraceful , but was all the fault of Smith , who could not refrain from using vllo language , Appreciating the fact , thut Smith imu provoked the light and that bo was getting what ho deserved , the spectators refused to Interfere , and lot the men b.Utlo until ono or the other cried peeoavl , which 1 mil informed Smith aid when thuv had lought for U.lrty inlnulos.

Tlm IIdino or tllmmplnim The o'nc thing wbloh has made the little city of t\illorton known abroad Is the fact that it Is the homo of the champion trotting norse sires , Woo-IIIno (3:10) ( : ) , byNutwood , and Shndeland Onward CJ:18MO : , b.V Onward. Thcso two great norscs have known to horsemen wherever horse racing Is admired , occauao of their rcmarkaolo ability to nrouuco ciirlynnd extreme spocd. Woodllno Is now but C years old nnd is the champion slro of that ago. Ho , as n. 4-j car- old , was the first slro of that ago In America to produce a 3:00 performer.

Slmdelnnd Onward is slro of Belle Acton , the champion yearling pacer of America. As a yearling this luly look a record of SSOX , a record which this year , as a 2 year- old , she reduced to 2:17f : } , and in all her races she has never been beaten but once.

The horse for years occupied a leading place on the list of winning sires and up to within the last few seusons clung on well up among tbo sires of winners , notwithstanding the vast Increase - crease in the breeding interest and the great volume of importations of the best blood In Great Britain and Franco. Longfellow's prowess on the turf jravo him a fame that few horses In the United States have ever had before or smco his racing career.

The season will bo started with probably twenty now men under contract , and In the spring the material will bo thoroughly tried out and the best retained. " Moro young players were signed by the league's base ball magnates for the past season tliun in nny other year in the history of cither the league or the association. This was because many of the veteran players became too aged for actlvo service. A singular thing , however , is the fact that few good pitchers wcro developed , Not that the young bloods didn't have n chance , as they did , lor under the now pitching rules many of the ola reliable twirlurs were urlvon their death warrants , bu' . because of ihcsu same pitching rules , which made it extremely difficult work for a man to pitch good hall. Of the pitchers developed Now York secured a good man in Gorman. Monufoo of the Louisvillcs must also bo regarded as a ilnd. Ho gives great promise. Comlskey got a good man iu the ungainly Parrott.

Ho was ono of the party who captured the crippled geese down at Pcrclval last spring after an arduous day's chase. Assistant Superintendent Parks and Iko Dillon of the Union Pacific railroad , North Platto. were up in the sand hills of the northwestern part of this state within the past ten days and killed thirteen antelope , The unprecedented long dry spell has driven the animals down from the mountains , and many have ventured back into their haunts of former days iu Nebraska.

All talk about the Omaha club being dissatisfied with their annual club hunt Ian mistake. Four-fifths of the members are heartily in touch with tali fall's competition , and since the late hunt the organization has had several applications for membership on this account alone. A trap shoot for a supper instead of the hunt , whllo It it worthy of consideration , cuts no figure with the genuine sportsman who knows there Is nothing like actual work on game iu the Held.

The land set apart for you is level , the soil is excellent , the location desirable , the whole country around it is beautiful with small farms planted to fruit ; the roads are good , schools and churches are near. The people living there are all Americans of the best class. In fact I am fully satisfied r with the land and the county. I find that the facts in regard to yield of crops have been underestimated rather than otherwise by that company in all its circulars. Respectfully submitted , S. R.
