m i •» Fight between Brunt and Sherratt . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 30 July 1853
m i •» Fight between Brunt and Sherratt . We have received several accounts of a fig ht that took p lace on Monday last at Money Ash , Derbyshire , between John Burnt of Macclesfield and George Shcrratt of Congleton , for 20 / . a side . From what we can gather , -it seems Brunt was seconded by Parker of Macclesfield , and Sherratt by Callaghan of Derby and Ned Moseley . Brunt gained first blood and first knockdown blow in the third round , after which the fi g hting was tolerably even until the 30 th round , when Sherratt adopted the dropping system , which he pursued until the 61 st and last round , when be fell as usual , and , as alleged by his friends , was struck a foul blow by Brunt . Brunt and his backers declare that no blow at all was struck , but that Sherratt fell , and , on his friends appealing , jumped up nnd left the ring without waiting for the decision ofthe referee . Each party claims the stakes . It would be impossible for us to decide between them , but luckily ...

Mr . Editor : In answer to the remarks in your paper of last week , with reference to the Tipton Slasher and myself , and in justice to my backers , as alao for the satisfaction of the public , it is necessary that some little explanation should hie given , as I am charged with never intending fi g hting the Tipton Slasher , and as I read that the Slasher feels disgusted at my conduct in not meeting him at your office , I beg leave to state the following facts : The Tipton Slasher has forfeited on three separate occasions to rae , when he has never put in an appearance , viz ! — 1 st , at the Castle Tavern , Hoiborn ; 2 d , at Jemmy Shaw s ; and 3 d , at Jem Burn s .

The belt had been previously in the possession of the Stag ; but the ri g ht of retention being challenged by the Deer , gave rise to tho present contest . Before we enter into a description of the race , it may prove interesting to give tho antecedental contests that have taken p lace for the possession of this belt ; but previousl y we may observe that , on Thursday , the 1 st of January , 1852 , Jackson and Frost had tested their relative celerity , in a five milo race , on the cricket ground , at Leicester , on which occasion Frost proved the winner by between 20 and 30 yards , doing ...

BACO \ - S South Carolina mare Nina , and Capt .

Tho Richmond Morning Mail says—The fact that Red Eye has beaten Nina in ono contest at two mile heats , and that he has won nearly every race in which he has heretofore been entered , has given him a reputation for speed and bottom rarely enjoyed by any horse , while it has attached to him hundreds of friends who will go their whole p ile on him against anything that travels upon four feet On the other hand , Nina , his half sister , by Boston , is known to be as fleet as the wind , and from her performances in the State from which she ha...
