[FROM OUR REGULAR CORRESPONDENT.]WILLIAMSTOWN, Dec. 4, 1882. Saturday afternoon, Nov. 25, the pent-up antagonism between the sophomores and freshmen found vent in a sharply contested foot-ball game. After a close struggle the referee awarded the game to the freshmen, the score being one goal to nothing.
