President Cochran gave a general review of the year’s operation. The history of the Association has been of steady growth. A General Secretary had been employed part of the year, but as the Association was not prepared lor such work, he was dispensed with after a few months. The next object of interest was tlie building of a permanent home for the Association. To the Building Fund there has been subscribed in cash SI 1,000: held by the Association lot, corner Bever ly and Lewis street, §2,600; old material in Lutheran church, $1,200; saie of twelve feet of church lot $1.800—making a total of $10,500, The Lutheran church lot, finally selected by the Board, as the place for erecting the building, cost the Associ ation $12,000. The Association has bor rowed the amount necessary to pay this debt, upon the most favorable terms. With the rent of the two store rooms on ti;e ground lloor, an;] the increased reve nues of tlie Association, it is expected that the entire debt can lie liquidated in ten years The §11,000 subscribed was given by H)K persons, and It is hop d that a more general canvass of the city will en able Association to raise $5,000 or $6,000 additional. Plans have been prepared, and are now undergoing revision, prepara tory to beginning the work, A new Constitution and By-Laws were referred to the President, which were af terwards reported, amended, and adopted. A. F. Robertson has been appoin'ed to collect the amounts subscribed to thp Building Fuud. The Association subscribed $125 to the State work, at the Pittsburg Convention, February last.

The game Tuesday between the Con nentals, of Staunton, and the Stonews of Lexington, was by far the best gai witnessed here this season. The home team led off with Fretwell the bat.

The Lexington’s advancii theirs by one- In the ninth each ciub gi a man aeross the plate; closing the gatr with score nine to four in favor of tl Continentals. The interest in the gam never (lagged from beginning to end;whi there were no brilliant plays on eitln side, the work of botli was so steadily goo that the crowd had ample room for a| plause.

THE MARKETS. The grain market continues uncertain, on account of the scarcity of offerings. There has been no flour worth mentioning brought In, and wheat, corn and oats have only been of ferred in small lots. We quote wheat at 80 to 82; corn, 58 to 60; oats, 26 to 30. There has been a spurt in wheat in the centres of trade, re sult ing from a •‘squeeze*’ on the part of the “bulls’* in a scheme to embarrass the “bears,” based upon the reported shortage of the Ger man and French yield. How long it will last cannot be determined. LIVE STOCK.—Baltimore, July 30th.—Best beeves, 4 .,75 to $5 00; rated first quality, $4 50 to 4 75 ; fair, 4 00 to §4 50. Sheep, 3 to 4gross.
