[Street Fights]

Driving on Monday evening from near the Foundling Hospital to Her Majesty's Theatre—a distance of about a mile and a half—I witnessed no less than three fights: one in Bloomsbury-street, one in High-street, and one in Dudley-street. In one of these pugilistic affrays the combatants were women.
