His sudden retirement he justifies in the following manner : —Firstly , ho fears that the Betting Honses Bill will prohibit any one from holding the stakes in a fi ght , and thus , after all the training , he anticipates that the match would come to nought . Secondly , his business , for which he gave a large sum , and to which he looks for his future support , is what he must look to as the main chance ; and he has received an intimation that , if the match goes on with the Slasher , ho will not obtain his license—the mag...

i THE RING . Fight between John Keefe and William Franklin , for . £ 25 a side . This passage of arms , which has been for some time on the tapis , came off on Tuesday , and was brought to a fair and honourable conclusion ; for although the battle , in point of excellence , did not come up to the expectations ofthe Fancy , still there can be no doubt that the best man gained the victory . The men are both comparative novices in the prize ring . The present was Keefe s third appearance , his first tournay having been with an outsider named Cash , and his second with tbe valliant Bos T yler , who although he had 2 to 1 the best of the contest , literally ran out of the ring , amidst the loud and deep execrations of his partisans .

Trotting at Wasbington . Saturday , Aug ; 28 , 1853 . —Match for f 150 , between Scottie , of Philadel phia , to a skeleton wagon , and Trenton , of Washington , to a sulky . The day being pleasant a large collection of spectators , and intensel y excited ones , too , were early on the ground . Admittance , 50 cenls to the track and stand . This Scottie , about which so much is now said , is a distinguished stranger , having won all the races since its arrival in Washington . Even Trenton , with Revolutionary glories lingering round the name , could not triumph on Saturday . Heats one mile and repeat . Time : 2 : 53 and 2 : 58 , according to our information , but not observation . It is said that Scottie is to be put up for raffle—a hundred chances at $ 10 each .
