' V/HAT- Of THE BIO FIGHT t As the day approaches forth* Mttlementof lb* big match between Heenu ud King, the affair aasnmoa a good deal of Importance, and It la st last beginning to be tbe talk of the country. Up to within a tew weeks put, very Utile wm aald about tho coming match eicept In regular sporting elide", ud even smong the admirer* of pugilism but Utile beltlog took place. Within the past weak or two, bowerer, speculation hsi Improved, end In lo one on Heenan meets with takers; but the friends of Banish do not feel disposed lo giro such odds, eioept In rare cases, tbe general term* ranging about sti to four, ud even this they consider a Utile too sleep) but 11111, a pretty brisk bualneu bu been done at thou rates. By private lnteUlgeuM from the training quarter* of the principal* in this great match, we learn that both men are doing weU, ud wen well advanced lo their work at lut account*. Parties In London, who are good Jndgu of ring matters, consider that tbe obanos* an In favor of Heenu, ud that, barring an accident, he cannot lose. They do not fear any Interruption, either from the blues, or from th* roughs, every precaution having b«n taken to guard against a repetition of the scene enaclad at Fernborough. This we hsve from a source that cannot be doubted. We an glad that the prospect* are so good for a fair and squan mill between the young gluts, ud w* sincerely trust that nothing may occur to upset these c a lcul a t ions. It Is probable that Jack MoDonald will be one or Hunan'* ssconds. He Is with him now, super Intending his preparatlona. Who tbe other will be, we osnsotuy at present Tom Bayers wm spokon of, ud It Is not certain that hs will not be in Htenu'e corner on the day. He bu taken considerable interest In Ibe American, ud we know him to be Interested In tbe main slake. There Is one man on Ibla side that we ahould like to have seen In John'a oorner, ud that Is, Horrtsssy; ud we have no doubt that, bad the matter bean suggested lo htm st u early day, he would have gone over to iMt$ it "Mce ud assistance to Bonlab, for there la no longer MM bad feaUng existing be- tween them thst eilslted during tbRarst International contest, snd nothing conld have boiler served to completely heal the old breach than the appearance of Morrlatey In the ring u a second lo Heenan In his coming light with King. Morriaaey Is betting his money on the Boy, snd as he witnessed bis fight with Ssyers, and has also tried him himself; he Is a pretty good Judgo or Heenu'a abllltlM. Tuesday noil, Dec. 81b, Is tbe dsy originally named for the meeting, but, u we have previously stated, (t Is probable that tbe day bu been changed, and u earlier Urns fixed upon. At tbo request of parties abroad, we have abetalned from saying much about the training, etc, of the men, as some arrangements thst were In progress might have been Interfered with after the receipt of tbe Cuvfeb In England. Tim Heenu had arrived out all aafo, ud the three brothers, John, Tim, and Jim bad r ormed a Junction, and the American representative wm having tbe "delicate" finishing touches put on him. In our foreign do parlment, we give the latest Items concerning the match culled from the London sporting papers. A Slamdeu RanrrsD.—In referring to the lat* prize light near Philadelphia, between Peter Mucin and Jamee Bennett, the In- om'rer ol that city bu the following scurrUlou* attack on the poor pnglllal. Alter onlerlalnlng Its readers with a description of tho battle, it proceeds to Indulge In a tirade of spleen, u wilfully false u It Is unjust, Here's the paragraph referred to:— "If these worthies would display their valor by entering the ranks of the Union army, and fighting the enemies of tho coun- try, It would redound much more totholroreiUtbntwe bsre yet to learn that a prize fighter Is poueued of thai true courage which would enable blm to shoulder a musket, ud face death In the eervico of lit* country." The writer of this knew u well u we do that In his own dty a braver man than William McMulIon nover led a reglniont Into batUe, ud although not a professed pugilist, he la known lo be a friend ud admirer of all that is manly and fair In a prize light Wo suppose it would do the fnTiifrer nun's heart good to sit In his our chair and writs of the slaughter of all ston 1 men', whose courage ud skill aro equal to any emergency, ud who u a body b eve done u much for the Union cause u uy clue or dtlzcns In Ibe country. As a refutation of this alandor, we will only ro- tor to a few of the true ud tried patriots smong the pngll. letlo profeulou who bsvs faced tho cannon'e mouth ud gutter. I ng steel without a murmur.

BASH BALL ON THANESOITING DAY, Tm truly splendid weather of Thursday lut (Thanksgiving day) tempted crowds of ball players to spend the prlndpal por- tion of the day in the eierolM of their favorite amusement, ud In consequence every space of ground Bailable for a ball match wu oocunled by puytr*, not only from regular dubs, but by parties who eitemporiee s match for the ocoaalon. In Brooklyn then wm quit* a Uvely time on all the regular ball ground*, ud we give below the records of auch games as we were enabled to attend personally:— Tea Stab Oboohds.—Two games wen played on thaw popular grounds, one between sldu choean on the ground early In the morning, ud one between the oompoattors of the EaqU endt'fifon newspapen of Brooklyn. The former game wu one between fourteen on a aide, captained respectively by Messrs. Henry ud Thompson, the vtotorr, at th* dose of a well played game of nine Inning*, being with Henry'* side by a soon of 94 to 11. Ae a general thing the batting wu very good; tbe base play on bolh eldee wu flrat rate; the fielding, too, wu good. In bat- ting MaDlarmed, Henry, ud Qalpln took the lead on the win- ning aide; Thompson, Seller, Miles, ud Polll doing but on lbs other side; MoDlsrmed, Bedell, and Mile* made home runs. At the dose of this match, the typos from the above newspaper offi- ces entered upon their eontut, but with one or two esceptione they failed to budle the ball u ikllfuUy u they do the types, ud the result wu a tyrolsb kind of a game, the Eagle boys prov< Ing to be tbe greater tyros of the two; at uy rate, they wen out- batted, the final result being tbe success: of the Unionists by s scon of 43 to S4, In a game of seven Inning*. Williamson led the soon on the winning aid*, ud Berger on that of the defeat- ed party; A thin made the only home run. We append the scons of the above gam**, which an u follows:— EaoLX.
