NKW YORK , July 17. The glove
mutch between Sullivan and Tug Wil
son at Madison Square garden to
night was probably the moat extraor
dinary afl'.tir of the kind that over took
place in this country , There wore
not less than ten thousand people
present and it took one hundred po
lice to keep thorn in order. Betting
ran high , Sullivan having the call at
the rate of one hundred to eighty.
All western sporting men at
one ; time oil'orcd to bet $500 to $100
on Sullivan. It waa rumored about
town t that the fight waa not aa fair aa
itVI might have * boon , an opinion pre
vailing that Sullivan did not oxnrt his
full powers. It is also rumored llmt
Sullivan and Wilson will travel
through the country and give sparring
01bi \rllaon forced the fighting from the
beginning , lie entered the rinjr at
100 ( pounds , though ninny present
thought ho wna lighter. Sullivan
weighed 100 pounds. Wilson's tactics
were to keep close to his man
nnd to drop to avoid punishment.
There wna not a square knock-down
during thu contest , though Wilson
went dorm at every opportunity. So
fur as sparring was concerned ho
showed moro skill than Sullivan. Thu
second round was n more repetition of
th first. In the third round both
in did aomu clever work , but Sulli
van's attempts to got in his sledge
hammer blows were rendered futileby
the cat-liku activity with which Iih
opponent ] dropped. In the fourth
ro they throw science to
th wind nnd engaged in "
thwl regular slugging match , in
whinh Wilson held his own. When

RENO , Nov. , July 1'J , Your correspondent

the Yosemite Valley , and n sketch ns
lir'uf na possible of our moro than
iharmint , ' trip may not prove tinin-
turostiiig to thu readers of TUB BKK
nnd her many friends in Onmlm ,
But I paiiao when I think of at
tempting to do that "Garden of Kden"
justice , when eminent writers have
attempted , nnd the beat of artists
have painted it , but nil have de
spaired 1 of giving expression to the
awe-inspiring feelings which fill the
beholder of the grand nnd mighty
chasm. : For I can any with nil who
have seen it that nil thu beautiful pic
tures mid bookj you may road of thin
lovely spot can give you little moro
idea of ita majestic sublimity than if
you i had not road n word.
In onclinnting beauty nnd sublimity H
of grandeur it far surpasses expression
and must bu aeon to appreciated , nnd
oven then its charms grow on ono the '
lougor they atay. Ila towering clifi'i ,
wntorfalla liku cataracts from the > a
clouds ( and gigantic vegetation , have )
no comparison in the world. And it
far surpasses the wildest nnd most ro
extravagant dre.uns . of the tourist , < >
aa they all oxprous themselves. n L
Youi correspondent had always 2 i
longed to sou thu matchless beauties
of thu valley of the Yoeoiiiltn , whose cat :

no i end to the cloi
Yoauimte. Look which way you will , one
thn shady nook , gurgling brook or

vorda or brush cannot describe. In _
'act , the tourist becomes really in Bun tine
ipirod on entering the valley , and af- buo
or leaving it longs to come and como O.IUI
igain , and ho mutt bu dull indeed nby
ho < cannot appreciate this wonderful
vork of nature , nnd lift a prayer of loolC
hanka to Him who made it. By thu
