PRIZE FIGHT- —A few days since two mechan
ics, named Harry Clark and John M'Carthy,
together with their friends, to the number of
about one hundred, repaired to one of the
islands on the Arkansas side of the.river, op
posite Memphis. for the purpose of engaging in
a regular prize fight. The preliminaries had
all been settled, and on reaching the island the
ring was formed, the seconds were appointed,
the rules of the ring agreed upon, and a collec
tion taken up to defray the expenses of a fu
neral, should one be made necessary. All things
being ready, the parties appeared in the ring,
stripped off all clothing except pantaloons and
shoes. Clark was a large, athletic person;
while M'Carthy, who is known as "Little Red,"
was very small, but active. The contest was
simply to decide which was the better man.—
The contest lasted just one hour and forty-five
minutes, during which time fifty-seven rounds
were fought, "Little Red" being declared vic
tor! Clarke counted the first knock down, and
"Little Red" drew the first blood.
INDIANS IN TEXAS.—The San Antiuio Herald,
of March 30, states that the two companies
from Washington county, under command of
Captains M'Phail and Haynes, returned last
Wednesday to that place. They ranged the
frontiers extensively, but without even seeing
an Indian. The Herald thinks the late;reports
of Indians are greatly exaggeratod, though by
no means unfounded. A correspondent of the
Express, writing from Uvalde, March 25? says
that the Indians have committed some fresh
depredations between that place and San An
tonio. They stole a lot of beeves near D'hanis
on Sunday, the 23d. Another party haielmen
up the Sabinal Canon and stole several head
of horses. The people of that Canon have
built a fort and some fifteen of twenty families
have moved into it.

mity in the weekly statements of the papers at
Charleston, Savannah and New Orleans. The
last prices current made up at New Orleans to
the 22d, make the deficiency 715,621 bales;
Savannah to the 28th, makes the deficiency
