The Morocco Dressers of William Bush & Co., have challenged those of S. Postles & Son, to play a game of base ball on next Tuesday week. The brilliant record, which the Athletic, made for themselves in their Western tour, led their friends to hope that another victory would bo added to their list in the game with the Bostom team yesterday, and four thou sand people assembled at 24th and Jefferson to witness the discomfiture of the visitors, but when the ninth innings closed, with a score of 16 to 1 in favor of the Red Legs; quite a different feeling prevailed. Of the game nothing need bo said except that the pitching of Manning completely be wildered the blue stockings, who batted McBride in a manner that was startling. The fie ding of the Athletics would have disgraced any nmateur club in the country, and the visitors played a game that always wins, this is tlie explanation in a nut shell. Tlic defeat was tlie worst experienced by the Atheletlcs. Tlie following is the score: Innings, 1 2 8 4 5 0 7 8 9 Boston, 5 2 0 4 0 3 0 1 1—16 Atheletie, 0 0 0 0 0 0010—1 These two clubs play again this afternoon.

He read Pu6ey, Jones & Co's letter and questioned if any committee would allow the contracting persons to charge 8 8-10 cents per pound for excessive weight. With reference to the useless stops which Mr. Canby charged the Wuter Com mittee with purchasing, last year, he said that they were purchased remarkably cheap.

It cost about $1 per foot which was 27)4 cents less than the estimate of the consulting en gineer. Mr. Baker said he had discovered that Council had paid $2,000 for stops, more than was necessary. Mr. Baker said he had done his duty in the matter, proved that $2, 000 had disappeared, which is unaccounted for.

He said tlic drivers of carts have been instructed to listen to all complaints from members of the Board and to obey their orders. The chairman also called the attention of the Board to the cases of yellow fever ex isting on a vessel at the Breakwater.

TIIE and no the the non-re X OtJt PRESS BOHEMIANS. ad in THOSE MEN OF J.EGB AND GOOSE QUILLS—A FEW PICTURES. - The- Herald mas stood by a lamp post gracefully lancing apple cores and orange peels with the stroke of his silver mounted * cane. "No fire, no murder, no hair breadth 'scape, nor danger in the Imminent deadly breach," he was soliloquising, "Heavens! what wouid I give for a respect able flre about this time." Raising his melancholy eyes in which the flames of des peration were about to Ignite the whole city, he beheld on another comer, leaning against another lampost, another gentleman of his profession. Proudly he backed tbe lamp post and proudly glanced his eyes from under his turned-downed hat; he evidently did not see his observer over the way for (matterof fact) lie was 6een to call up with a wave of his magic cane, six urchins from the depths of the gutter. lie talked with them for the space of one minute, gave each a penny and sent'them off on a trot. The Herald man followed the lads, having some curiosity to see how speedily a given hoy with one penny will spend said penny for peanuts. But, O ye shades of Greeley! when around the cor ner off thev darted in a body yelling "fire, fire" as vociferously as lungs can do. The next evening the paper which No. 2 against the lamp post represents contained the hol lowing item. "False Alarm. —Last cveniug between the hours of 9 and 10 o'clock a fire alarm was given and the varions Are companies immediately turned out. The alarm' fortu nately proved to be false." Here say is bad to go by, but one of our city dailies does this altogether; almost every local news that it contains comes through that channel. If the Herald man was called upon to personify this "hoar say" he would place before his readers a fine middle aged gentleman, quick of speech and motion, utterly benevolent of countenance, curly of hair, st>lwart of figure and with a "it don't make much dif ference" twinkle in his eye. A mere son of commerce could not do all the reporting of course. To gaze at it well and report it well for an evening paper another one of the characters is known. lie takes *a roll of paper, a pocket full of pencils, darts up town until the Chief is in sight and taking that affable functionary by the arm walks with the air of a judge to the environs of the court. He rushes along further and seizes one of the council by the elbow ejaculating "drop me that item instanter." At tills rate he goes for an hour; then he finds himself suddenly at the edge of a precipice. Patience on the Herman monument! here at Second and Jackson streets, and .that man born in the very depths of the equatortells me as coolly as you please that I will find my man at Seventh and Buttonwood. These Bohemians have long settled upon the truth that legs have as mueli to do with their profession as brains. to to It GRAND LODGE GOOD TEMPLARS.
