Mr. Murphy, of course, whon ho gets lioino, fctarts telling his friends about tlio big men lie fought and knocked out in such a short timo ; but when ho comes to the light with Nipper I'cakes, ho pays tho ring was rnshod und the Sydneyitos would not let him fight. Although it was tho longest fight ho over fought over here nnd tho lightest hoy, it may'bo scon that Murphy giveH tho weight of all tho big men ho heat. On tho ovoning of the fight, tho Sydney In}' lurred tho scales at 7«t. tOlb., whilo Murphy gave anything hut short woight at 8st. 51b.
