GREAT PRIZE-FIGHT. 01> SULLIVAN MEETS K1LRAIN. SEVENTY-TWO ROUNDS FOUGHT. II A VICTORY FOIt SULLIVAN. ARREST OF COMBAT-A NTS. I [FROM OUET OWN CORIIESPONDENT-1 Nitw YORK, Monday Night,—There was great indignation yesterday over the press arrangements for witnessing the Sullivan and Kilrain prize fight. No less than 200 special corres- pondents applied personally for tickets but oniy 30 were issued, and many of the priu- cipal newspapers were left in the cold. The special train left New Orleans station at midnight packed with 15 dollar ticket-holders, the ten dollar crowd following au hour later. At the trestle bridge over lake Poucliartrain, every adventurer was compelled to exhibit his ticket, and those who did not, possess a permit were ejected. Sullivan and Kilrain, with their henchmen, left town on Sunday afternoon, each gladiator having a Pullman ca?.ch sot apart for him, his luggage, and followers. Just before the train from New I Orleaus moved away the Actoruey-General of Louisana went through the coaches in company with the Adjutant-General and one of the Governor's Bbff. He said that in no circumstances must the fight occur on Louisana territory, but his utterances were half-hearted, and the Adjutant-General was observed to wink on a dozen different occasions. On an assurance being given that the fight would not take place in Louisiana the train was allowed to proceed. At a few minutes past four o'clock a despatch was posted up by the Herald, and the Broadway speedily became blocked. This despatch announced th:it Sullivan had whipped Kilraiu in 72 rounds. The tight ended at 1.10. The Press Association has received a telegram from Nnv York, dated 4.50 p.m., which st,ates:-Tijere is only one wire from Now Orleans to the battle ground, and that is controlled by the railroad, which does not allow other than railway business to pass ovor it. But information from a trustworthy source re- peats that Sullivan won after seveuty-two pounds. Both combatants were arrested after the fight. A special train is returning from New New Orleans, from which place the subsequent reports will come. The f i o,, I i tlasted two hours and 13 minutes. Neither combatant was seriously hurt. Richburg, the location of the ring, is a town- ship virtually owoed Ly a Mr Rich, a wealthy saw mill operator. There is only a small settlement, which is 100 miles from New Orleans. Last night a large body of mon by the aid of the light of pine-knot torches prepared a ring, and erected benches for ,2,000 spectators. From all parts of the country came the story of the intense interest displayed ever the great fistic encounter. At Boston a presidential election has never drawn a bigger crowd into Washington-street than that which filled the Newspaoer-row this noon tu get news of the fight. LATER.—Both men were arrested by the Mississippi sheriff.
