FIVE TO SIX.
The ball game on Tuesday between
Vicksburg and Providence was the
prettiest ever see, here, and the play
ing on both sides was splendid.
About the only errors being made was
dlone by the club from Vicksburg,
) when in the fifth inning it looked
like they had gone to pieces on ac
Icount of one or two wild throws.
The Vicksburg club was the first to
the bat and made three runs, and it
was thought that the jig was up for
the home boys; but after this inning it
was different, and they only made
three more runs in the other eight
innings, which showed that Provi
dence was working hard. If the
pitcher had not been changed in the
last inning by the Vicksburg club
there is no doubt that Providence
would have won.
V aughan of the Vicksburg club

pitched for Providence, was also good.

nine innings. Both catchers were

There was perhaps four bundred
~. !people out to see the game, which was
not near enough. The home boys
went to a great deal of expense and
or trouble in arranging this game and
they ought to have been encouraged
by fully a thousand spectators. If
they bad been, our citigens would have
seen more games during the nert
month or so, but as the boys have re
ceived such poor encouragement we
doubt if they care to have any more
ot clubs come here.
