THE SUN. BALTIMORE, SATIRUAV, FEBRY 1, 1848.! Prize Fihtis. disgraceful as the late outrage ;itfHHist the lavvsot our State and the peace of society i.H leen, there- is some relief to the darkest aspect of the affair in the very general denunciation the odious practice has encountered from our citizens. The contrast in this respect with the prevalent sentiment in England is truly gratifying, and is an evidence i hat every thing foreign cannot be foisted upon us by its friends and admirers. The praeticcof prize fighting originated in England and in the eemi-eivihza-tioti of a certain class of minds intermixed through a.i the grades of bociety, it was fostered under the specious pretext of encouraging the manliness of popular spirit and disseminating a taste for individual distinction. The '"science," as it waspompously fcrined, during the latter part of the last and early part of the present century, was bo extensively patro-'ii : by the nobility and gentry, that it attained an nii;Mrtauee and universality m the nation, that MiocWed and alarmed the moral religious classes f society, as it threatened to engross the popular mind with the lowest and vilsst propensities of im-hition. And tins alarm was well founded, not only 1.1 view of the aptitude of the people to regard the system as one of their national sports, bui in the obvious though insidious purpose of its distinguished "patrons'' to perpetuate it. A design was manifest on t ie part of the best aristocracy of England to connive at the practice, as it seemed to confine within ita de-Graded limits the Bpirit of popular ambition and the liurst for popular distinction. While amongst the immediate "patrons" and admirers of the "sport," there was an open and undisguised purpose to attach peculiar distinction to the "science" by reducing it to arbitrary rules and setting up a system of rank, up"on the threefold basis of skill, capacity, and personal weight. There were the scientific and natural fighters "I the first; tiic men of udurancc of the second; ;t.,d "the heavy'' and "the light" of the last. As a peculiar and attractive object of contention, "championship" was established, and this was bestowed upon ihe beet tighter in all England; the thing was done with great publicity at some notorious house frequented by "the fancy," as they were technically termed, and the "champion" was arrayed in "the belt," the badge of his "bad eminence." Thus, "the belt.1 or "the championship of England," as it is indifferently termed, was the grand aim of the prize-lighter. As tiiis, "however," could only be opsn to 'the heavy weight," a similar distinction was provided for "'the light weights," and the possessor of 'the httle belt" was styled "the pet of the fancy." This system, established, encouraged and enriched bv ihe personal participation of the nobility, was thus complete and effective, and it was, moreover, alarmingly popularised by the immense circulation v inch a paper known as "Bell's Life in Iiondon" acquired under its operation. All the other sports tf England combined could never have given to this low? demoralizing sheet a tithe of the circulation it attained by its elaborate, meretricious, but graphic, details of the priie ting- An initiatory practice, known as "sparring," was a common nightly exhibition in many houses in London, and is, though less popular and attractive, to I ins day. And tins became so prevalent, that accord-Kit; to representations upon the subject, "the whole peasantry were inflamed with a passion to excel in tiie art of self-defence." Such is an outline of the prize ring, and its adjunct, the sparring room, in England, where the brutal system was originated and matured; but is now, with all other relics of burl ar-isni, in its declining stage. There is not any ground to apprehend that at the present day such a system could attain the same extent of popularity and distinction in a really civilized and enlightened country. Hut it is not the less essential that every demonstration of a purpose to continue the practice, should be promptly met and resisted, and if persevered in to fulfillment, the actors should, when apprehended, le signally punished. We find that the press witk which we are in exchange, without a single exception, uses the severest terms of reprehension with regard to the late ;u-ftir bv which the laws of our P'ate have been insulted, and all denounce the system as brutal and degra-dnn;. A remark, however, in the Washington Globe of yesterday morning, has, in view of some facts within our knowledge, suggested a few thoughts. T.i:it paper speaking of the fight as "a brutal and revolting affair, disgraceful to the community, to the country, and to humanity," adds: -Certainly all men of all parties, all religions, all -pinions, and all pursuits, will be willing to unite for trie purpose of discouraging and preventing such brutalizing scenes." We wih that it were so, but Baltimore is not al-'aether clear on this point. The "sparring exhibitions" given in tins city by the principals and their t rieuds, prior t the fight, were, we understand, fully attended; and included amongst their numlier, many of out citizens oecupyuig a position is this community, whose example was in consequence calculated to be most pernicious. We have before us, and on perfectly reliable authority, the names of several persons whose presence at Washington Hall on the , c isioiis referred to. was observed and commented upon by the lowest blackguards in the room, with ! profound astonishment but with infinite relish. It may well be asked for what purpose tiiey were there. If t foster a systematic degradation of the popular taste and pursuits, with the same ulterior purpose as f.iat of the English nobility, it must be ineffective, f r the common republicanism asserts its influence with redeeming effect in this case. In this country, iniier our institution, every man becomes literally rhe equal of his associates. There is no rank with us, by winch to delude the popular mind, and redeem the individual depravity of taste. A man cannot be a "patron" of the science, without becoming a participator in its degradation. His wealth may fortify him against the consequences of his personal debasement, but his taste will be popularly recognized as an element oi bis character, and he will take rank as he ought. Tiie familiar adage, "simiiis simili gaudet," applies to the letter, in a republic. If, however, thj inducement to become a spectator of such a scene is in a morbid appetite for that kind of "sport," the obligation upon the community at large to discountenance sib'h exhibitions, and nil who participate therein, is not the less imperative. A Healthful a.nd Moral Example from Prize-I-'igu ier. We were impressed with one fact, from reading, in connection with the late prize-fight, the accounts of the regimen and training which the parties undergo : men can be induced, it would seem, from motives of ambition, avarice, and revenge, to observe the laws of health, to be strictly temperate in all things, t avoid all debilitating stimulants, such as Alcoholic drinks, tea and colTee,tobacco,&e. to rise earl v, to take abundance of exercise ill the open air, to l.-Uh often, and observe the most rigid system of cleanliness to observe the law of ehastity.and rigidly at. stain from all licentious practices. All this is done tor the purpose of bringing their systems to the greatest strength and power of endurance that their constitutions are susceptible of. With some modifications in the diet, and with different motives of action, we would recommend the habits and rtgimeu of these pugilists for the adoption an4 practice of every man in America, modified, of course, according to the age, strength, and constitution of the individuals. Military at tub Inauguration. The Boston Tost states, that it is probable that the Boston City Guards, well known as one of the most efficient military organizations in New England, will visit the city of Washington, at the inauguration of Old Zack. While the military of Baltimore, Philadelphia and other places, are arranging a most interesting feature of the celebration, the old Bay State should not fail to be represented. Kesumttioji of Railroad Travel. The mail for the North yesterday morning was carried over the railroad, a connection having been formed by sleighs .,u the ice across the Susquehanna at Havre de Grace, it being of sufficient thickness to sustain a wagon. The mail from the N'oith also reached us at half-past four o'clock, havi.ig also come across the road. The Latk Mcrder at Ccmubrlaxd. There is considerable discussion at Cumberland, Md., in re-card to the failure of the State authorities to offer a reward for the apprehension of W. G.

The last named artists are stars of the first magni tude in the musical firmament. Poverty ever the attendants upon the children of genius, would have consigned them to obscurity, but tor tne Kindly intervention of a few friends, through whose pecuniary assistance they made a journey to Paris. Here their reputation was established, and from thence it has extended far and wide. The highest encimiiuins and warmest praises were lavished upon tsem by numerous critics, who pronounced Charles an artist of t he highest order of talent, uniting in him self the various characteristics which have distin enished the most celebrated violinists. He not only conquers the most incredible diihculties, but he also draws trom his violin melodies oi bewitching sweet ness. As a composer, he ranks with Vieutemps. Even at the early age of six years, he composed concerts and symphonies, which were declared by the grand Maestro Spohr, to whose criticism they were sub mitted Productions worthy ot mature age. Charles' rapid progress in music was only equalled uy ma oosiiHuej ana caprice; ior wnen out eleven years ot age, at er a carelul examination of his numerous musical compositions, he was so much dissa tisfied that he determined to burn the trash i as he styled them) truly a heroic resolution! No s'wmer said than done one heap ot manuscripts alter anoth er was thrown into uie lire the little fellow watch ins tne while with evident dclieht, the devouring names in tneir worK ot extermination; and when all were consumed, he ran to his mother, joyfully exclaiming, "Ma." I am happy I have destroyed all my old works. I shall begin again to compose with new rleasure, and I promise you, mv dear mother, to be very industrious." The works he has since produced. are are compositions of the g-eatest merit a part of wnicn are now being prepared Ior publication. .Miss Adele Hohnstock, the sister of Charles, a charming, lo'ely girl, scareelv seventeen years of age, has successfully competed at Pariswith thegreat masters.

Asthma, or difficulty of breathing, is caused bv a collection of morbid humors in the air-cells of the lungs, which prevent them from being duly expanded; hence difficult and laborious breathing, cough, great oppression of the breast, pain in the head, palpitation of the heart, and many other distressing complaints. Wrinhs Indian Vegetable Pills are always certain to give relief in Asthma, because thev purge from the body those humors which are the cause of every malady incident to man. From four to six of said Vegetable Pills, taken every night on going to bed. will in a short time carry otT the most violent fit of Asthma, and, if used occasionally afterwards, will keep the system in sound health.
