From the Jackson Herald,
On last Thursday evening was a
week, a Mr. Hill, who lives Hear Har
mony Grove, got mad with Mr. W.
•J. Goss, ot that place, and wanted to
figl t him. M. Goss said he did not
care to fi-ht him, hut that if Hill
would not be satisfied any other way
he n ouM agree to fiidit him with a
buggy whip'. Ili 1 agreed to this inode
of warfare, and after making an agree
ment as to distanc" and other rules
to govern the fight n"w buggy whips
were produced, and the combatants
’oed a mork about five feet apart and
commenced lashing down on each
other with all their might and power.
The battle ground was in front of
Freeman’s livery stable, in the heart
of the town, and it was not long un
til the most of the citizens of iho p'tee
were looking on at a sale distance.
No one had interfered, and the com
batants were making steady and reg
ular licks upon fe!i other without
flinching, and strokes of the whi| s
i nii'd tic heard several blocks as ay,
as tin y went w hizz og through tho
air arid upon the hacks of the two
inert. Qccas’onally one or the other
woo'd soon cento up again to the
scratch. Whenever they got tired,
one would oa I out to hold up for
awhile, and they would take a blow
ing spell, and when rested they would
go at it agaht. The fight continued
for over fhree hours, with short in
tervals for rest.
Alter tho second round, Hill, who
had no covering oil his back > X'Opt a
shirt, insisted that Goss should pull
off his cent, which he did, and they
took both hands to thou whips am!
went to work. I!y this time the fight
had spread all over the town ; some
of the merchants closed tip their
stores and Im im ss was genei ■ 11y
suspend'd to two whal would betlia
result of the encounter.
After they had w orn out over seven
dollars worth of new bi.ggy whips
and Were completely tired down,
they agreed to quit, and ilill told
Goss that lie was sitisfud. From par
ties wlio saw Hill’s back, we learn
that there was not a place on it that
you could place a silver quarter with
out touching the wholts that the whip
had m ule, and he was marked all
over the same wav. We learn that
Goss was no! hurt quite so had, and
was able to he out the next day, but
Ili.l had to lay up, and it was rumor
