PUGILISM. Prise Fight Between Bolster and Wirbiirtoa for $1,000. BOLS7Z33L TEH WZmtSB. SIX ROUNDS IN TEN MINUTES. ic. itc. Ac. A prise fight came off yesterday morning at Naugatuck Junction, Connecticut, between Horatio Bolster, of that Bute, and William Warburton, of England, which was a bloodless affair, the fight being won by Bolster in sis rounds, which oceupted ten minutes, by receiving a foul blow from his opponent, the belligerents leaving the ring without a mark. A more uninteresting or unsatis factory affair to the lovers of the fistic art was never witnessed, and all who wore at the trysting place re tained home disgusted with the whole proceedings. THB URN. Horatio Bolster, tbo winner of the fight, is a native of Waterbury, Connecticut, and is in his twenty-fifth year. He has appeared twice before in the prise ring?the first time with Sam Ooliyer, the champion of the light weights in which contest forty-nine rounds were fought 'in fifty-five minutes. Losing that fight he was soon a ter-vard* matched against MlkeCanr; and again, ufter fighting twenty-four rounds In thirty minutes, he was compelled to lower his colors. Artor wards he had a glove fight with Larry Healey, of Prov deuce, which was an affair of no importance, further thau it led to the present match, and by an acci dent Bolster has been successful in scoring his first vic tory in tho roped arena. Bolster attributes hs defeats w.tii Collyer anu Carr to the breaking of bis hands in each oncounter, b it that te his opinion on'y, for no one believes ti.at he ever could "get away" with such a tough little customer as the present champion. Pre vious to Bolster's appearance iu the prise ring tie was a soldier in tho Filth Connec'icut regiment, and serving three * ears w as honorably d scharged. H? is I1> e feel six inchos in height, and weighed yesterday, previous to entering the ring, one hundred and twenty-six Sounds onlv. By some bad mniiiiu'emeot on the pa:t of Is trainer, who administered a black draught a lew days ago, be fell awsv in weight twelve pound-', and was so ioebic when lie entered the ring, with hi- bedv cov ered with plasters, that lie seemed more like a subject tor tho bosidtal th in an aspirant lor pugilistic honors. He traiueii ior the pre-ent light nt Lord's We.-l Ruck Hotel, tVestville, near Now Haven, under Ihc men orship of John Hopkins and But'. Kiley, the latter putting on the finishing touches. William Warburton is a native of Sheffield, England, isth rty two years of age, live feet eight inches in height, and weighed in the ring about one hundred and sixty pounds. This was his first appearance In the ring iu this country, and It is llke'y to be his last, for backers for another trial will bo difficult to find. He says ibat he (ought twice in the old country; but as there is m> record of the same in "Kistlana,'*' wo opine they were simple "turna-up" and unworthy of record. Ho is a largo, soft, llabby fellow with little knowledge of the art of soli-defence, and will never make u fightor. He was trained bv Lirry Hoaley, at the Echo, Congross avenue, New Haven. Tim KXctrmnog was an early ono, the cars oonlaining the pugilists and tb"lr friends leaving New Haven for Nuuiiaturk Junction beforo daylight yesterday morning, arriving at the place of meeting about sunrise. Con.-iderahle tune was cut to wasie in finding a suitable place for the formation or ran king. Tho rirg, which, by the wav, wa- twenty-four feot square, lurmed of eight slakes and ropes, the litter extending In double lines, the uppermost line being four feci from the gmund and tho lower iwo ieet, was pitched in a very beautiful und picturesque spot, a short distance from the Housatonic river, w-hioh. with icy face and surroundings, presented a lovely appesranoe as the softening rays of the morning suu fell on the plca* ing land-cape. The crowd soon gathered around the ring, and although not large, each seemed intent on securing the best standpoint for an inintcr upied view of the contest. The riug bung completed, urn fact wa soon communicated to ibo pugilists, who were domiciled In adjoining farmhouses, and la n short tliuo Wsrburtou made bis appearance and threw his hat into the ntig, which he immediately followed, amidst the shouts or h s partisans. Bolster did not show himself for a long time aft"iward8, but when be -htod hla headgear into Ui arena he was received with the congratulations of his choosing oornbrs. The seconds of the men. Kit Burns and Larry Hoaley for Warburton, aud Butt Biley and George Carey i or Bolster, than tossed up a copper, head or tall, forth choice of oorncrs, and Warburton winning, be chose the corner, for somo unexplained cauao, with bts face to the sua. m ooion-. The colors of tha men were thoa tied to one of the middle stakes, the winner of the fight being entitled to both. Bolster sported a cream flag, with brown spots, while Warburton had a blue, with a white border. HOT I.NO OS TIIK KK-L'LT. Very little betting was indulged in on the ground on tho affair, the friends of Bolster being unwilling to risk their mon.iv on tbo r man when hit condition was seen. Instances, however, occi mod of small snm* at the rate of eighty sgtinot on# hundred being wagered on his winning. doing rams Tonrrv. The seconds of the men then beg in to strip the pogiliots of their ord nsry c oining and dress tli m iu their fighting ccstumMM consist d of white kn e brsech'-s and stockings, with lacsd boobs whi.-fi covered tho ankles, theaoloi <f the boots hen g well studded with ?p k<? about three-eigfitfis of an Inch lont to proven, tho iirhtcrs from slipping on the grass wi le muviog about in ihe contest They also w-re 'heir colors around their wsi- ? After this decorative bu-i neas had l-een arranged, and ihe p-culsis ware wrapped comfcrtab y up in blankets, the difficult task of SELKCTlNG A SKIB KK was tho next business to be attended to, and which of all others is the mo-t unsatisfactory dniy appertaining to tho affair. Umpires had been chosen, J. Church for Watbor'on and John Hopkins lor Pointer; bat the third party, the ens wh? bad to decide all dispute* and to whose iudgmrn everything had to b- aobmitted, and on whom all tha responsibilities of the fight in case of dispute had te rant, was an individual not so ?as ly to he found Vow men aspire totbia untbankfhl position, and os o general thing those who are most competent are the least likely to servo. After a great deal of consider ation however, and when several had been proposed and iejected, Mr. Connor, a moat oompetent man, was In dosed to take tbo responsible position. ALL READY. The above knotty point having been aettled, and the principals and seconds hav.ng advanced to the centre of the ring sod abaken hands apparently in the most cordial and Iriendiy manner, they retired to their re ?pootire corners and awaited the call of time for the near.

Warburton'? flesh appeared very soft, and there was a great deal of unnecessary fat on his wody and face Their attitudes were not cracelul, as they both stopped too much, and hold their beads too far in frost for either safety or elegance. They were not long, however, In getting together, War barton commencing operation* by planting a light left bander on Bolster's nose The Istter returned, but was short, though s second attempt landed his left on the right Jaw of the Englishman Quick exchanges th n followed, Bolster getting in a good shot behind the le t oar of Warburton, and ihe latter patting in two right handers, one on i be forehead aud the other on the left rlbe, but neither of the blows seemed to have much Bwer. After a few harmless left and right hsnders by tb parties, which fell on their arms and shoulders, Bolster slipped down and Warburton walked to hi* corner.

A rally ensued, and Warburtcn got In one wlh hi* left on the forehead of Boleier and another on the temple; but n Hher had force. Bolster went down after launching out his left and hitting Warburton * arm Round 4.? Both men ware now puifing, showing the want of condition, but they were soon at work firing away without doing any execution Warburton struck at Bolster'* face, the latter parrying the blow neatly.'

The fire is supposed to have origi nated in the sub-cellar, where the boilers for heating the building were kept. It was first discovered at a llUle after five o'clock, when the entire structure was envel oped In thick, black smoke, which issued from every crevice of the doors and windows. The alarm was given and a number of engines were promptly In attend ance. Considerable delay ensued in thawing the ioe from the plugs, and still greater delay In gaining an ac cess to the interior of the building, wbidh was obtained at last only by breaking with laborious effort through the iron sliding doors and through the windows and shutters. ocTBRXtK or TIIK flaw*. For nearly an hour the smoke coutiuued to issue in in creasing volumes, which at times completely hid tbo Biore from view, and, whirled in flaming columns by a st.ff breeze, darkened tbe sky above and the rtrects below. About six o'clock the flsmos began to hurst forth from the basement on Leonard street, and, gradually spreading, the building was soon completely enveloped and ablaze. A considerable amount of gocds was rescued from destruction on the first floor; but the Are advanced with surprising rapidity, tbu wind eddying about the building and Tanning tlio flames Into intense heat, which greatly jeopardized the surrounding buildings, tlio window panes suapping into fragments, and the sills, cornices, curtains and other inflammable material igniting and readily charring.

TBI ATLimC YACHT BICE. Sketch of the Professional Life of Capiat* Haatael The prcod and public have, with great unanimity, awarded to tba subject of tbia sketch a full share or praise for the victory obtained by tlie Henrietta in the late ocean yacht race. A sketch of the professional life of the Captain will therefore prove interesting, as, although he la already well known to the public as one of the ablest seamen la the United States, a full account of his life oa aea baa never yet been published. When quite a boy Captain Samuels evinced a prefer ence for a life at sea, and to gratify his desire, at the age of thirteen years, he ran away from his friends and made his first voyage in a schooner from the Schuylkill river. He, however, soon abandoned his vessel, and, during an interval of two years, worked In a machine ahop. This life, although of great service to him in maturer years, did not ault bis adventurous spirit, and,again run

aitiff away, he served under several tlags and visit d va rious parts of the world. In the first full-rigged ship that crossed the **" of that harbor be visited Galveston, Texas, and as the war for independence was then going on be joiued the Texan navy, aud there remained until the Loae Star Stale bad been recognised by Mexico as an independent republic. At the ago of nineteen CSptaln Samuels wsa second officer of the ship Heory Pratt, from New York io Liv erpool. While In the 'alter port he attracted the atten tion of an Rngliab captain, who indued bim to leave his position on the Henry Pratt and aec-pt that of chif officer of the ship Caledonia, of 1,200 loos burden. In tho same ear<aoity bo afterwards served on board of the Lr ander and Boyai Consort. His reputation while in the Kritish merchant marine was excellent, and he would have risen much higher than be did bad not hi* preference been lor service on board of Ameri can ships. He therefore returned to New York, and at twenty-two years of age was placed in command of the ship Manhattan, in which be made several voySces to Constantinople and Odessa. Whno in the latter port he received the compliments of the Pasha of the Turkish navy fur the skilful manner in winch, in u severe ;;ale, bo biought b.s ship into the Golden Horn without a pilot; a Turkish frigate and the Manhattan being llie only vessels, in a lloel of oue hunured and nin.iy-live sail, that could work their way inio the liar bor. laird Lyons who was then minister to Grocee, also sunt lor him and expressed his admiration at toe able manner in wbtch be brought his ship to anchor under tape Celogna in a heavy Levanter. He was afterwards presented \M'h nn elegant snuffbox by llaron Tucker backer for assisting iu saving a vossel and crow from dost ruction oil Odessa mole. Captain Samuel* next made a rapid and successful voy age to ila'avia, aud rclMiicd to the north of Kurope, where i.o disposed of ins ship and cargo. Ho then came back to New Yoik and assumed command o! the ADgebquo, belonging to Messrs. Schuchardt & Gobliard.nmffi-euiained on U,r until 1853, when b> wus s -tit to Newbury port to supeiIntend tbo construction ol the clipper ship Droad noughi. The repulaliou be won ns coinmandor of til a famous vessel is widely known, and scarcely needs ob solvation. His passages across the Atlantic were tlio quickest on record for a sailing ve-sel, and more than once lie succeeded iu heating the steamers and carrying llio latest news to and from Kurope. While in command ol llio Ureaduouglii tb rly men of IiIr crow armed them selves and broko out into open mutiny. At llrsl ihey refused to llsleu io reason, and had Captain baiuucls re sorted to force the consequences might have been fear ful. This ho perceived, nud, mlmly arguing Willi tbo men, Le soon convinced them of their error and eient ually succeeded iu bringing them to terms, without any conditions or promises wlunevcr Dur ng a tremendous gulo in 186a bis snip was boarded by a heavy sea, when be received a compound fracture of I lie leg and i oilier severe injuries. " lie ng unable for fourlcou days to have bis leg set. be suffered lornblo agony, but, 1 notwiibsianding, be managed to bring the I'read nougt.t iuin Laval, without a rudder, his carpenter ) having be n killed iu the gule winch so seriously injured tho ship. After par.iaily recovering and repairing tho damages to ins ship Captain Hamuel* amused binn-elf while con valescing bv inventing a cradle to put in n ship's stern post, nod upon his arrival in New York the value or his invention was most liberallv acknowledged by the Hoard of Underwriters, who croscnied him w iih the sum of *3,MX). A tor his full rorioiatlon to lioaiih he was In duced to enter tlie government serv re, in command of the sieamor John Hire, hut General Van VLet, with his usual penetratinit, discovered the admimsi ralivo abilities of tbo Captain, and appointed him to the poe t on of Superintendent of the Quartermaster's si oa mere. While in this caps Ity bis managernem wa? aide and Judicious, and saved to the govermmnt a considerable sum ot money. _ Upon ti e fitting out of the second expedition to Fort Fisher < apiaio rauiuols was placed in command of the McClellan, General T rry 8 flagship, and participated in the ospture of that stronghold He continued in the service of the United States until the close of the trnr, when be retired to private life. Before his retirement, however, bo commanded the steamer which conveyed the lato Lieutenant General He oil to Key West aud New Orleans, where the old vet eran waa obliged to go to prop his fail ng health. The tetter of the General to Captmn Vaninels, acknowledging his ability ana attention, is very comp.imeutary, and is treasured by the ? aplaln as a battering memento of the conqueror of Mexioo. In March, I860, Captain Kamoels wns appointed to tho commaud of the United Maie> atenui hio Fubon, and still holds Dint position. U|X>n his return from his ia?l voya e be Iound himself naraid by tlie owners of the three compering yachts as the person each wished to ee cure as commuuder. The result of llio nice is of too recent occurrence to need recapitulation. Upon consld erntiou he decided to no< apt the offer at the owner of the Henrietta, and ha* won another laurel, not only for his victory, but for lbs remarkable rapidity and safety of the trip. It is pleasant to know that the reputat on of Captain Samuels is not confined to America, but that Ins skth as a naval coinmandor Is highly appreciated ou the other side of the Atlantic. The toreigo papers teem with com plimentary nonces of ht^, auu wo clip the follow.ng from the Loiidou T.legrapk to show the spirit of appre ciation that exists. Msfemog to Gap.aio .-amueia log, the writer says that "reed w.Dt a nawiioat eye it is a most exciting narrative, and tell- the story like n book of Homer. Ho gets lite sad splrii frets Ihe wild weather sad eager ship, and when tie has to lay to. It chafes him as the sea eludes bis dalniy bark.
