Another lli'fi'iit for tlio Nationals,
rtefol-o tlio New Hcilford club arrived hero
tho Nationals mid their friends boasted that
tlicy would tvlu tho entire thrco Ramos to bo
played, and thin tlu tho scoro with Albany on
Kinuei won. Tlio Now Ilcilfbrils catno on
time, nnd ycstonlny played tho Nationals In
tho presence of 11 thousand spectators. Tho
latter did not win, ns tlicy promised, neither
irat the playing of tho men as n ulna doorv
Ing of success. To soino client tho exhibition
waj a repetition of th.it made tho day
before with tho Pouplikoorutcs, nnd shows tho
rcfulti of loose playing and revolving. Tho
Nationals managed to sqttoczo In thrco
Innings without mistakes bolng undo, nnd
lumulued that thoy had accomplished won
ders. Under the circumstances this w3 prob
ably truo. Derby was sick and unable to up.
pear In tho nine, nnd Klllck started out In
command of tho right field. It Is vory evi
dent thnt ho la not at homo In that position,
ns tho errors committed by Mm weio very
costly, nml contributed considerable toward
tho score made by the visitors. At tbo clone
of tho fifth inning ho camo In to third base,
nnd Mack went to right field. Ho also failed
to bat with his usual success, and it was not
until tho ninth Innings that ho got in a b.iso
hit. Generally when his fielding Is not up to
tho mark, he counterbalances that by good
batting, but this was his off-day nil around.
Glenn tried a one-handed catch ami mado n
failure of It, but tho New Kcdfords gained
nothing by tlio error. McCllclWn played n
fino game nt short; Booth nt second,
with tho exception of one wldo throw
liomo. I.ithtm took caro of first, and
Mack third, Uarrlng an error In the third
Inning, Baker did excellent sorvlco In tho
ccntro field. Lynch, in tho early part of tho
game, did not seem to pitch with his custom
ary force, and tho Now Bedfords found llttlo
troublo in batting him, hut nftor tho first in
ning they were entitled to only ono earned
run, although thuy obtained six. Tho balance
wcro contributed by errors. Trott caught well,
mukliig but ono mistake, nnd tliatdld no dam.
ngj. After tho second Inning tlio visitors
when they mado a couplo of errors. They
played afaiilllessfloldlni!gamoup to the olghth,
evidently becaino encouraged from the In
ferior exhibition of somo of their opponents.
The gaiuo started off well for tho Nationals,
they making thrco ruus in tho first and one lu
the second innings, hut nftcr that thoy took a
sudden tumble, and nuver rallied until the
eighth inning, when it was too late to do any
good. The Now Bedfords did not outbat them
very much, hut it was the had fielding iu tho
right, on the part of tho Nationals, that told
so heavily against them.

camo thero for money. Ho described the sit

of tho inherent dlllleuUles surrounding It,
that lio should send tho cno to the (Irmid

Tho agricultural falrat Lccsburg, Vn., closed
yesterday, tho crowd lu nttondanco being as
great ns on any of tho provions days. All pres
ent seemed to enjoy their boll lay, nnd if tho
fair hnd continued toveinl days longer thero
would have bcou no lack of patronage A
handsomo sum was cleared, which will bo de
voted to Increasing the accommodations of tho
various buildings and making other necessary
Improvements. Tho day fairly teemed with
fun, tho first ovont being n foot-raco be
tween about n dozen colored aspirants for n
prize of $5. A good start was effected, ovory
ono of tho contestants aiming to get tho best
of It. Their struggleswero the canso ofn great
deal of morrlmout, as many a runner got n dig
lu tho ribs, designed to hurt his wind. After
half the distance had boon run fivo of the con
testants wero blown mid gave up, but tho re
mainder wero well bunched until uoar the fin
ish, when ouo of tho hindmost put on a smut
nud went to tho front, winning hy a stupoiidcr's
length. After the dialling and chinning Inci
dent to this race had ended, an exhibition trot be
tween two youug horses owned In Winchester,
Va., took place. Lady Thorn earned her right
to bo eousldored a " good 'uu,"ns her opponent
looked as though ho was standing still whllo
being tiumcrcllully distanced. The big race
of the day was a free-for-all, which brought to
the post Frank, entered by W. E. Gilbert ;
Salllo Scott, by J. II. Morrow, and Max, by
It. M, Joho, Frank secured tho first boat lu
2:15, Max being second and Salllo thlid, Tho
second, third nud fourth heats, however, were
disastrous to Frank's chauccs, for Salllo got
down to her work and won all three handily,
her host timo bolug 2:10, Considerable money
changed hands on the result of this rnco, as
Frank was looked iioiias a sure winner. Da
twocn tlio first and second heats n mile taco
took place, for which four mild-looking ani
mals wero cutored, thu lust iu to take first
money. All tho fun of the day scorned cen
tered In this contest, tho entries going when
nnd how thoy pleased. Ouo animal started
out with a tremendous hurst of speed, but
about fifty feet from the judges' stand ho
changed his mind uud camo to n full stop,
throwing his rider, luckily without Injuiy.
Tho other three made tbo circuits required,
but tho remainder of tho quartotto maintained
n meditative attitude long after his brethren
tiad finished. Finally his rider mouiitod him
again, and with tho aid of two cowhides, sev
eral bats, innumerable kicks mid a bunch of
thistles Induced him to go In and wlu. This
result was not accomplished without a scries
of denunciatory shrieks, mid the legs or the
nnlmal were scarcoly precopllblc, owing to tho
loose uud careless manner with which he dis
tributed them. Even mules, however, can be
piirsuadod to mako time, and this one did go
four-fll'tha of a mile lu ono hour and fifteen
minutes. A hurdle race twlcu around thu
track, over six huidlos, followed, Star Pilot
proving tho best jumper and runner. Tho
racing wound up with a daih of one mile by
horses witli their owners nstiido them, which
proved to bo n very exciting uflair. Thero
were seven starters, and It was a hard mattor
to decide which was tho best horso, but ns
usual Iu such cuse3 tho favorlto cumo in Inst, a
hoi-sa coiideninod by ovorybody won, and of
couso there was considerable kicking uinong
tho disappointed ones. The nrcmlums awarded
gave gonoral satisfaction, tho fellow-lug being
the most important:
