Sunday Idition. August 20.
by Miss Mary Wells, whose quiet painstaking style j
Of actirig w:* have had to speak of in favorable terms I
on formei* B'ebiaions. The JiUle i art of Mrs. Jarley, ,
bf waxwork fame, was caae/ully and intelligently i
performed by Mrs. 8. E. McDouall, whose first ay- 1
pearance this season was at Booth's.
Taking it all toget. er Little Nall and the Mar- |
cbioness" was a deciaed success, and will probably i
have a long run. The first Loita matinee took place |
yesterday and was very well at ended.
Boweby Theatbe.—ln the midst of one of
the most successful runs which any play has had at
this theatre lor several years, “ Bertha, the Sewing
Machine Giri” has been withdrawn in consequence
of previous arrangements which the management
had made. We doubt not but that it will shortly bo
reproduced with renewed success. To-morrow even
ing Mr. Poole’s new play, “Shia Fane; or, Shamrock
Green,” will be played for the. first time. This dra
ma lt» regarded by all who have read it as superior
in every to an J of Po ° e ’ a previous dramas,
and is said to b* replete with strong situations, strik
ing tableaux, pleasing and amusing characters and
interesting incidents. Z he seone3 ’ n the ear ier P ar ‘
of the play are laid in IrelanA an(i mßn y pictures ot
real Irish life are exhibited. K’° third act showf
life aboard an emigrant packet-ship, tiie fourth
introduces the familiar life of this city; Among the
exciting scenes and sensational incidents, BUC_ !
ceed each other with almost startling rapidity , are 1
the following-: An old bridge and mountain stream' (
in tho county of Kerry; the dead convict’s return to i
.Ireland; a wild glen by night, furious storm, and J '
shattering of the old oak bj lightning; the gray- fc
stone quarry, and blasting of a huge rock; and the 1
emigrant packet-ship, showing the upper and steer- ’•
age decks and hold. The most sensational and thiil -
ing scene of the play represents a ship on fire, and f
the rescue of the passengers by a passing vessel.
New scenery has been painted and new machinery 1
Invented for the illustration of “ohin Fane, 0 and the 1
management have left nothing undone to make Ill’s t
drama a grand success. Mr. T. G. Riggs, an Irish *
commedian of acknowledged ability, has been cn- (
gaged, and will appear in the characters of Suit Gair, * !
Con the Simpleton, Mrs. Hanbury, Tinkering Tim, *■
and Mr. Maguire. Tho other characters in the c
drama will be sustained by the entire strength of 11
the Bowery’s excellent company. Previous to ‘ Shin
Fane” each night will be performed tho drama of a
Cavaliers and Roundheads,” and Tom Bolas wil. 1
sing some of his most comical Dutch songs. On P
Friday evening Mr. T. G. Riggs will take a benefit. tj
As the Summer season—one of the most eventful < -
and successful which the Bowcry Theatre has ever 1
had—closes with the present week, next week inau- L
guates the regular Fall and Winter season, th *
opening attraction of which will bo G. Swaine Buck
ley, in a new dramatic sensation entitled, “On the 1
Track.” Mr. Buckley will be remembered by the r
readers of the Dispatch as tho loading spirit of the J
renowned Buckley Serenaders. If Mr. Buckley 11
proves as excellent an actor as he did an amusing
and accomplished minstrel he cannot fail of at once
achieving popularity with New York theatre-goers.
Wood’s Museum.—Mr. Geo. C. Boniface last 8
night concluded his highly successsful engagement a
and now takes his departure for Boston, where, we v
doubt not, hs will become a great favorite. Were it
not for a strange staginess which characterizes all
his representations, and which we trust time will
eflace, Mr. Boniface would be one of our very best e
actors. We certainly wish him every success in
Boston.
Mr. and Mrs. John L. Hall have been delighting r
visitors to the matinees by a delightful interpret- 8
tion of tho parts of Jasper Pidgeon and Meg Crow, in
H. T. Craven’s beautiful little comedy of “ Meg’s Di- (
version.” Mrs. Hall’s playing of this part is an ex- 4
ceedingly clever and finished performance. Gay and ’
tricky at the opening, the more tender traits of the 1
character were not neglected and the entire repre- ■
sen tarion stamps Mrs. Hall as one of our very best
comediennes. Mr. Hall was natural and pleasing as <
Jasper; Mr. G. C. Charles was an acceptable Jeremy J
Crow; Mr. Frank Evans a good Roland; and Mr. 1
Wilder a clever and satisfactory Ashley Merton, while
Mr. John J. Morris was an admirable representative ;
of Eytem, the lawyer-
This week, Mr. and Mrs. Hall will appear at the
matinees in one of the late Wm. Brough’s latest and
best comedies, “Kind to a Fault,” and the comedi
etta, “ The Windmill.” In the evening, Miss Ada
Harland will appear in an entiaely new play, written
expressly for her by Fred G. Maeder. It is entitled
“Lola,” and is descriptive of scenes both in the old
and new world. Some of the incidents are also con
nected with the recent Parisian Commune, and as
Miss Harland is a most talented actress, “Lola” is
likely to prove a great treat.
Grand Opera House.—This theatre will be
opened for the season on Saturday, September 2d,
on which occasion Mr. and Mrs. Bandmann will
commence an engagement, appearing in the play of
“Narcisse.’” Both these clever artists have gained
fame and reputation by their playing in this piece,
and Mr. Bandmann is no stranger either to America
or New York. On Monday, September 4, a dramatic
version of the lamented Charles Dickens’ uncom
pleted work of “Edwin Drood,” will be presented.
It is from the pen of Mr. T. 0. DeLeon, and is en
titled “Jasper.” All plays produced under the
management of Messrs. Cole and Baker, will be care
fully and liberally mounted, and as an excellent
company, including Mr. Mark Smith, has been en
gaged, the season at the Grand Opera Houge, will,
undoubtedly, be a brilliant one.
Olympic Theatre —T ie preparations for the re
production of “Humpty Dumpty,” are being rapid"
ly proceeded with. Most of the eminent artists en
gaged have now arrived and rehcarsale have been
gone into with a zeal and spirit that bodes well for the
success of tho revival. The scenery is to be some
thing particularly grand, the dresses to harmonize,
and the tricks and transformations all new. C. K
Fox has consented to suffer the martyrdom o;
Pantaloonship at the hands of his brother, and will
nightly submit to a number of indignities which
none but clowns ever do inflict on their relatives.
“Humpty Dumpty” will be the greatest pantomime
ever produced in this city.
Park Theatre, Brooklyn.—“ Under tho
Willows,’ with Miss Annie Waite and Mr. W. H.
Leake in the principal parts, has been very success
fully produced. The plot of the play closely resem
bles that of “Hunted Down,” though the characters
are of a different type. The play is in five acts, and
is well written, and exceedingly interesting from the
first. Miss Waite is a careful, conscientious actress,
and gave a most powerful, touching performance as
Hortense; Mr. W. H. Leake is a very clever, able
actor. He played the villian Thileaut in tho most fin
ished and natural manner. All the other parts, nota
bly those of Miss Fanny Reeves and Messrs. Lamb
and Chippendale, were supported in a commendably
perfect manner.
To-morrow evening the celebrated Dutch character
actor, Mr. D. L. Morris, known both in America and
Europe as Dutch Morris, will commence an engage
ment in Shannon & McLean’s new play, “Dollars.”
Mr. Morris is an artist with an excellent and de
served reputation, and one who, in those parts oi
which ho has made a specialty, has no rival. His
representations do not consist in merely speaking
with a Dutch accent, but in every department of
stage business and effect, he is an adept. The play,
“Dollars,” is highly spoken of, and produced as it
will be here, can scarcely fail to be successful.
Messrs. Lamb and Carroll showed a noble example
in their recent endeavors on behalf of the Brooklyn
sufferers by the Westfield explosion, and one which
cannot but gain for them the respect of the Brooklyn
and New York public. We understand that a very
handsome sum has been handed to the Mayor as the
result of a matinee performance given by them in
aid of the sufferers.
Tony Pastor’s Opera House.—As we antici
pated, the engagement of Mr. W. H. Whalley proved
a great success, and Tonv Pastor’s has been com
fortably filled every evening during the week. On
Monday and Tuesday evenings, “ The Black Band,”
Bn interesting dramatization of one of Miss Brad
don’s earlier productions was presented, with Mr.
Whalley as Bertrand., and favorably received. On
Wednesday evening, “ Damon and Pythias” was the
attraction, Mr. Whalley playing Damon with great
force and perception. The play was produced in a
highly creditable manner, both costumes and proper
ties being chaste and appropriate. On Thursday
evening, “Kathleen Mavourneen, or the Dark hour
before dawn,” was on the bills, Mr. Whalley essay
ing the character of Terence O’More with consider
able success. Mr. G. W. Murray was an exceeding.y
humorous and amusing Billy Buttoncap, Miss Par
tington an excellent Kathleen, i.nd Miss McClellan a
pleasing Ki tty. “The Loan of a Lover,” was also
produced during tho week, giving Mr. Murray and
Miss Partington an opportunity of appearing in two
Of their best parts, Peter Spyke and Gertrude. Both
were thoroughly successful, their songs and duets
being heartily applauded and encored. On Friday
evening Mr. Whalley had an excellent benefit, a host
Of volunteers taking part, and on Saturday (last
pight) Mr. Geo. W. Thompson appeared for that
pight only.
To-morrow evening will be produced, what is
by many considered one of Boucicault’s very best
plays, “The Octoroon.” Few plays have met with
such invariably great success as has this one. Frum
its first production until the present time it has con
tinued to be looked on, by critics, as one of the finest
plays in the range of modern dramatic literature,
Bud by managers as one of the greatest attractions
Bt their command, whilst by the public it has on
v every representation been rapturously and admiring
ly received. It will be produced at Tony Pastor’s
With great completeness. The cast will be gtrengih
•ned by several important additions, the most nota
ble of which will bo the reanuearance of' Mr. Sam

[ Ryan himself, merits aS aS
j second to his skill an * as a manage?. The
, arrangements will be ca?*tfdTy uitended to, tfzfd tho
; ureases as usual appropriuV and handsome. Ar*
rangemenls havj been effected which tho theatre
is Eopt nico and coo ! , and few pI.XJO® of amusement
! are kept so agreeably comfortable is this one.
■ This can easily be attributed to tho gable ox
l cr lions of Mr. Dody Pas lor, whom by th J way, we
| I rust, soon to see thoroughly recovered from late
accident, and his energetic and courteous
business manager, Mr. John Runnells, in whorb ho
has a most worthy and capable official. One of the*
most agreeable features of the establishment is tire i
admirably conducted matinee representations kindly
arranged by Messrs. Ryan and Pastor for those
whoso avocations prevent them taking advantage of
the evening entertainment. They are given every
Wednesday and Saturday during the season.
Globe Theatre.—Mr. Josh Hart having at
length completed his arrangements, and having had
his beautiful theatre converted into one of the most
handsome and comfortable places of amusement in
town, now annoum?B& tho opening of the season, and
particulars connected therewith. The entertain
ments will consist of performances by the most dis
tinguished artistes to bo had, either ill America cr
Europe. Artistes in all branches of the profes
sion will appear during the forthcoming and
the Globe will certainly bo on<? of the best conduct
ed theatres we will have. Another excellent:feature
in connection with it, will be the absence of aught
likely to prove offensive even to the most refined.- A
tone of delicacy will characterize every entertainment
produced, which in itself must earn for the theatre: a
high name. The comfm-t of visitors v£>U as hither--
to be carefully studied. The list of names men
t’oned as constituting the 1 opening company, proves t
Jhat the management will be generous and liberal in
the extreme, and we are much mistaken if such en
terprise does not meet with its due reward. Among
those engaged, are the Zitella Trouce, five irr num
ber, European artistes of great distinction, the Grand
Globe ballet troupe, numbering twenty young
ladies under the direction of Mons Carle, and includ
ing in its list, the beautiful dancers, Miss Emma
Carle; and Miss Lillie Carle. Professor Davis and
his wonderful troupe of trained dogs. Professor
Campbell and bis “ Theacorium,” James Collins,
and Martha Wren, artistes already favorably known
in New York,, will also appear. Johnny Wilde, a most
popular and clever negro comedian, a’so well known,
the great star artistes, De’ehanty and Hengler. Mr-
Charles Gardner,, and son, Mr. W. S. Budworth, Mr.
Larry Tooley, Mr.- J. H. Cummings, Mr. F. Russel,
Connors and Bradley,. Master Martin, G. L. Stoute,
A. B. Kennedy, Harry Guion, Lew Cole, the Wheeler
troupe, three in number. Miss Jennie Hughes, the
Leon sisters, the Deardon sisters, Miss Lizzie War
ren, and a full dramatic company headed bj- Mr.
Josh Hart. Mr. Hart will be business and stage
manager, so that those departments are in good
hands, and Mr. J. R. I'opham, than whom there is
none more popular in this city will bo Treasurer.
There will be matinees every Wednesday and Satur
day. Several artistes of note from England will
shortly arrive in this country to fulfil engagements
at the Globe, and a constant succession of novelties
will be kept up.
Union Square Theatre.—This beautiful
theatre is now almost completed, and the company
engaged, proceed to rehearse the programme from
to-morrow. This of itself is a proof of the care
ful manner in which the theatre is likely to be
managed as the fact of the company devoting them
selves to a forrnight for rehearsal, speaks for itself.
On the Sth September the doors will be thrown open
to the public, and one more theatre will be added
to the list of New York places of amusement. We
are pleased to learn that Mr. George H. Coes has
been appointed stage-manager. Mr. Coes is a gen
tleman thoroughly conversant with his business, and
we feel assured that in his hands the stage business
of the new theatre will be carefully looked to. In a
few days we will be enabled to give lull particulars
concerning the opening company and novelties.
Harry Hill’s Concert Saloon. The
amusements this week at Harry’s have been of the
most mirth inspiring description. The can-can has
been greatly admired, and the other dancing and
singing has been first class. A pleasant hour can al
ways be spent at Harry’s, and fun of the most rol
licking description, tempered with the best of hu
mor, and most universal good feeling is always to
be found.. The genial Harry himself sees that noth
ing but the best of order is permitted, and makes all
comfortable by his own pleasant good natured man
ner.
SCRAPS MUSICAL AND DRAMATIC.
The piano-leetm-e-concerts of Mr. Jerome
Hopkins, the composer and pianist, are receiving an en
viable amount of complimentary regards from our pro
vincial friends Westward. At William "port, Pa., the
new Academy of Music was filled to hoar him, and
churches have been placed at his disposal in numerous
other cities. Mr. Hopkins is entirely unassisted by any
vocalist, but depends solely upon his programme of one
hundred pieces (iirom which he plays without any notes,
at the dictation of his audiences,) and his versatility as
an entertaining and instructive lecturer. Mr. Hopkins
is certainly to ba congratulated upon being the origin
ator of the latest novelty on the stage.
The Rankin Comedy Company, under the
direction of Mr. McKee Rankin, were at. Hooley’s Opera
House, Chicago, last week, where they were exceohngiy
successful in all their representations. The company
includes Messrs. McKee Rankin. John Marble, W. V.
Lingham. W. B Laurens, Jervis Vincent, Charles Stan
ley, John Jennings, J. H. Rennie, Frank Knignt, J. B.
Ashton, Mr. A. Guelph, and Kitty Blanch
ard, Viol t Campbell (Mrs. Belvil Ryan), Katie Mayhew,
and Molly Shields. The business manager is Mr. G. L.
Parkes, and the stage manager Mr. M. V. Lingham.

THE NATIONAL CAME.
A GRAND VICTORY FOR THE ECKFOBDS-THE '
MUTUALS NEARLY CHICAGOED AGAIN-A
SPLENDID GAME-THS SCORE 12 TO 3.
Yesterday afternoon, the third game of the series be
tween the Mutual and Eckford clubs was played on the 1
Union ground, in presence of about 1,500 spectatort.
The contest resulted in one of the most interesting and
best played games we have seen this season, especially
on the part of the Eckford lads. This was the first game ’
of any moment the Mutuals have undertaken since 1
their return from their late disastrous tour West, and 1
it was regarded, therefore, with a great deal of interest, 1
as a preliminary test prior to to their championship !
games with the Rockfords and Bostons, on Monday and ‘
Tuesday. Again were the infatuated backers of the 1
Mutual Club put in the hole, and once more did the ‘
Eckford partisans pick up a few sweet crumbs. The 1
betting opened at 100 to 60 on the Mutuals, and a large ’
number of pools were sold at or about that price. Even 1
when it was seen what a brilliant game the Eckfords 1
were playing, the backers of the New Yorkers stuck to 1
their colors with a courage and determination worthy of
a better cause. The Eckford lads played
A MAGNIFICENT GAME,
the fielding of Gedaey in the left field, and Hicks be
hind the bat being superb. “ Oleaginous” John cap
tained his men with consummate judgment and skill—
indeed, in this respect the Eckfords are far better han
dled than the Mutes, and, if they will only stick together
next season, working steadily in the gymnasium during
the Winter, and not allow any paßrv consideration
of a few dollars per annum to split them up, they will
stand a better show to carry off the '.championship pen
nant of 1872 than any other club we have yet seen play.
They will always command a large assemblage to wit
ness their games, and in all probability it will prove a
moro lucrative “spec” for them than if they joined some
of the, at present, more wealthy organizations. Nel
son, it is true, made one or two bad errors yesterday,
but he growls himself into such a frenzied state that it
is a wonder he does not make more. He certainly works
like a beaver, and excepting in the matter of grounders
—'‘grounders is the word,”—he has not a superior on
third base. The Mutuals may thank their lucky stars
Martin waa soft enough to lei t.vo o. i.iom get to first
base on called balls, or they most assuredly would have
ccen
CHICAGOED FOR A SECOND TIME
in one season by the same club, and that the lately de
spised Eckfords. Seven times did they go to the bat
without making a run, indeed in the seven innings they
only succeeded in making two first base hits, Start and
Wolters being the lucky men. The Mutuals made
several errors, but they were not very glairing ones, they
seemed principally to be the remit ot a lazy, easy going
style of play, which they will require to shake off pretty
soon or they will ocoupy but a very poor position in the
base ball community. They appear to lack energy and life,
and play more like a set of old men, than young healthy
alhletes in the full enjoyment of good health. There is,
no doubt a good many of tho slips they made were
attributable to nervousness as inning after inning pass
ed without a run being made, and the prospect of a
second Chicago loomed up more formidably before
them. A club such as the Mutuals ought not to be
whitewashed eight innings out of nine by any club in
the country. Both nines were on hand in time, and
Mr. Sweasy of the Olympic Club of Washington um
pired the game very well indeed. Martins pitching was
quite up to the mark and he deserves great credit for
the steadiness and regularity of his delivery.
Pearce began, and retired on a foul tip to Hicks. Hat
field followed, and also disappeared on a foul fly to
Hicks. Higham was next in order, and Swandell took
care of him on the fly. Nelson led off for the Eckfords,
and was taken on the foul bound by Ferguson. Chap
man followed with a fine hit to left field, making his
second base. Hicks was next, and hit the ball to For
; gucon, who fielded it nicely to Start. Holdsworth then
’ hit a nice grounder to Fleet, who fielded it to Start.
Second Inning.—Wolters was first to the bat, and
I made a fino drive to Nelson, who muffed it, and Rynie
i got his base. Start followed, and made his base on a
i nice hit past Nelson. Fleet then hit one up to Nelson,
, which he looked at very placidly, and allowed it to drop
■ between Martin and himself. Ferguson next hit one to
> left field, which Gedney scooped in on the fly. Patter
son was next in order, and sent a bounder to Martin,
• who should have thrown the ball instantly to Hicks, and
a double play would have been the result. As it was, he
tried to run Wolters out at the home plate, and was
r finally obliged to throw it to Hicks too late to make the
double play. Eggler, however, was beautifully taken on
■ the foul fly by Hicks. Shelley began for the Eckfords,
and was splendidly taken by Start on the foul bound.
Gedney followed with a good hit well stopped by Pearce,
and fielded in time to Start. Swandell was next, and
got his base on called balls, going to his second on a bad
throw from Higham to Fleet. Martin then hit to Fer
l gueon, and he threw the ball badly to Start, but Martin

Allison fielded well and put him out at first; Hatfield
then retired on a foul fly to Hicks, and Higham also
1 disappeared on the foul fly to Hicks. Allison was first

bound by Higham. Nelson followed and drove a hot
■ one to Pearce, who stopped but could not hold it, and
i and Johnny just got to his bag in time, getting to his
L second on a wild pitch; Chapman then made a fine hit
to left field making his first, and getting to his second
, through Hatfield’s slow handling of the ball, while Nel
f son came home. Hicks tnen sent a high one to left
, field, which Hatfield took very prettily on the fly. Holds
i worth next sent a hot grounder to centre field, bringing
- Chapman home; he got to his second on a wild pitch
and to his third on Shelley’s hit to Start, which the
- latter muffed. Shelley then tried to steal to second, and
, when Higham threw the ball to Fleet, Holdsworth came

ECKFORD vs. HAYMAKERS.
The Eckfords having defeated the Haymakers at Troy
on the 9th inst., in the first game of the series between
them, the latter visited New York on Thursday to play
the second game, and, if possible, to avenge their pre
vious defeat. This result they would have satisfactorily
accomplished had it not been for an extraordinary coin
cidence in the last inning. The weather appeared so
very unpropitious that not more than 1,000 persons had
courage to visit the Union ground, and a great many of
those who did go no doubt wished they had stayed away
as the result of the game must have lightened their
pockets considerably. Although the Eckfords have
been playing a good sound game lately, and holding
their own successfully against the best clubs in the
United States, and notwithstanding they defeated the
Trojans in the previous week after a hard and well con
tested struggle, the betting opened at 25 to 12 in favor of
the Haymakers, and after the second inning had been
played, the odds on the Trojans increased to 100 to 30,
and even to 100 to 25. Such ridiculous betting must in
evitably bring the layers of the odds to grief, as there is
not a club in the country upon whom it is 2to 1 they
beat the Eckfords. The Haymakers did not present
their regular nine, as Flynn did not play, and Connors,
the tenth man, was substituted for him at first base.
This, however, was no disadvantage to the Troy men, as
Connors played tho position in first rate style, disposing
of no less than fifteen of the Eckfords in a thorough
workman-liko fashion. The Trojans would undoubtedly
have won tho game had it not been for their pitcher,
McMullen, who, in the most extraordinary manner ap
peared to lose all control over the ball in the last inning
after two of the Eckford men ware out, and when it was
Broadway to a banana that the Eckfords would not be
able even to tie the game. Of course there were many
persons kind enough to insinuate that he had thrown
the game, but it seems utterly improbable that he
should have been such a fool as to wait until the last in
ning before he commenced such a line of conduct, when
he might so much more easily and certainly have ob
tained his object by doing a litt’e wild pitching in the
earlier part of the game. There is no doubt he was
much fatigued and a little nervous from the effects of
the heat, and, as a matter of course, when he discovered
he was not able to pitch with his usual regularily, ha
became still more nervous and excited. At any rate, bo
that as it may, the Eckfords are indebted to him, and
not to their own play for the victory they obtained.
Thursday was evidently one of tho days when the Eck.
fords have one of their streaks of bad play, as they
muffed and threw the ball about in every direction but
the one in which it ought to have gone. Mr. Charles
Mills, of the Mutual Chib, was selected umpire, and he
called play at 3:35, the Eckfords being firet to the bat.
Nelson led off with a good lino hit to short, but Flow
ers muffed it; Chapman followed, and went to his base
on called balls; Hicks then made a fine hit, which Flow
ers stopped and sent to Craver, putting Chapman out at
second and Hicks at first. Holdsworth next hit the ball
to centre field, but it was tak?n on the fly by York. Mc-
Geary led off with a grounder to short, which Holdsworth
muffed, and ho then got to second on a passed ball.
York followed with a grounder to Swandell, and was put
out at first. Flowers was next, and was muffed twice,
once by Hicks and again by Allison, before he reached
his base. McGeary then got home on a bad throw from
Nelsc-n to Hicks. Connors made a good hit to left, earn
ing his base. King also made a good hit to left, bring
ing Flowers home, but. he was himself put out while try
ing to steal to second. McMullen hit to short, and Con
ners ought to have been out at third, but Nelson muffed
him. Pike then sent a grounder to Allison, who muffed
it, and Connors and McMullen came home. Bellan next
sent sent a grounder to Nelson, who again muffed it.

THE GOLDIE TESTIMONIAL.
The following correspondence has appeared in the
Tieraid and World during the past week, and as the sub
joct is one which we cordially and heartily indorse, we
have much pleasure in laying the matter as prominently
as possible before our readers, and entreating them most
heartily to do all in their power to assist Mfc. Brodie in
making the benefit for the widow and family of tho late
Mr. Goldie a substantial one. Tickets for admission to
witness the match, on the 18th prox., will lie at the office
of the New Yoke Sunday Dispatch for sate. The
price is only fifty cents, and there are doubtless hun
dreds of friends of the late John Goldie who> perhaps,
would not like to put their names down to so small a
subscription as one dollar who will gladly invest in a
couple of tickets. To all such we would say, ’‘every lit
tle helps,” and every fifty-cent ticket sold will be a little
assistance to the widow and bairns of one who was a
staunch friend, a quiet, upright and straightforward
gentleman, and one who did an immense deal for the
advancement of all out-door manly sports. There are
few Caledonian Clubs in the .United States at whose
games Mr. Goldie did not at one time or another assist,
and we hope to receive many letters from them, ad
dressed te Mr. Brodie at the office of the Di&patch, with
liberal orders for tickets, or subscriptions toward the
present testimonial. John Goldie was always ready with
his purse to help any case of distress, and he was also
always ready to assist most indefatigably in getting up
a benefit for any one whom he knew to be in distress.
Sir: Your columns being always open for the advocacy
of any case of real distress, I take the liberty of sub
mitting the following to the favorable consideration of
your host of readers generally and the lovers of our na
tional game in particular:
A few weeks ago Mr. John Goldie died, leaving a wife
and a young family almost totally unprovided for. There
are few persons who take an interest in athletic snorts
of all kinds who were not acquainted with Mr. Goldie as
one 3 of the cleverest athletes in the United States, but
he was best known to the base ball fraternity as first
baseman for the Mutuals, and the Unions, of Mor
risania. He had been at different times a member of
various other clubs, and his record in them all is a clean
one. There are few nersons, if any, who had a more
thorough knowledge of the game than he possessed, and
there is no player in this country upon whose good
faith, strict integrity, and attention to his work, greater
reliance could be placed. For the last few years his
health was failing ranidly, which compelled him to give
up his regular business—a stereo typer—and take to
something else in which the strain npon his physical
strength would be loss severe.
It is in the therefore, of those who are so dear
to him who for so many years contributed to our amuse
ment, that I would appeal to the sympathy of your nu
merous renders. What I would suggest is, that a base
ball match should be played for the benefit of the widow
and children. From what I have seen of the men who
play base ball, 1 have no doubt they will come forward
instantly, ready and willing to do all in their power to
assist in making it a grand success. A most attractive
match might; be arranged between the old Mutual and
Atlantic nines, at least as they existed in 1870. Such a
contest invariably drew a good crowd to the ground on
which it was to be played; and I feel assured there are
thousands who would again flock to see those old com
petitors once more ranged against each other, irrespec
tive of the lauable object in view at present. The Mu
tual men would, I feel satisfied, be glad to have an op
portunity of assisting the widow and children of an
•‘old time” friend end companion, and I am equally
satisfied the old Atlantic boys would be glad to take a
hand in to assist on such a scheme. Should they have
any improvement upon the above idea to suggest, I
shall be giad to hear from them.

, issue of that paver, that the old Union nine of Morris
c ania, of which the following is a list, should also play
, the Mutual nine for the benefit of Mrs. Goldie and fam

which appeared an the World:
“The old champion Union nine, comprising Birdsall,
Pubor, Smith. Mar.in, Shelley, George Wright, Aiken,

i testimonial fund, if a game should be played between nine
1 picked amateurs of Brooklyn against nine picked ama
-3 teurs of New York, the game to be played on the Capi
i toline ground. The suggestion is an excellent one, and
1 we will Be glad to hear from some of the principal ama
-3 teurs on the subject; beside, it is extremely pleasant to
i see how general the feeling is to pay some mark of re

ATLANTIC vs. ATHLETIC.
i The Atlantic and Athletic clubs, both of Brooklyn,
o met on the Capitoline ground on Monday, to play the
. first game of their series for the Amateur Champion
t ship. Both clubs have shown good form, both of them
- having defeated the whilom Champion Stars, and there
s fore a good deal of interest was manifested in this game,
y Mr. Ferguson, of the Alutual Club, umpired the game
a in excellent style, keeping the players up to the mark,
f and allowing no time to be cut to waste beyond what
■, had been already lost before the nines came on the
d ground. The game was a most brilliant one, some very
J. fine fielding being shown on both sides; and it was one
t of the quickest games we have ever witnessed. The fol

Yesterday a lively and very exciting game was played
between the employees of the Sun and Times, in which
the&oi which “shines for all” was victorious. It was a
very natural result that tho Sun should warm up the

rays to bear, and doubtless if the gentlemen of the Times
practice assiduously with the Sun's satellites, they may
yet hope to shine conspicuously in tha baso ball firma

THEW.CLTEB SCOTT CEXTE?i/LRY.
DINNER OF THE NEV/ YORK CALEDONIAN
CLUB.
The festivities in connection with the Walter Scott
Centenary celebration od Tuesday last, were brought
to a pleasing termination by an admirably arranged
collation in tiio Central Ptu-s Casino, at the conclu
sion of the ceremony of laying the foundation stone
of a statute to the filuslrious Bard, /.bout two hun
dred. gentlemen sat down to an excellent repast, tLie
Hall being inconveniently crowded, and even stand
ing room being at a premium. The chair was
occupied by Mr. John Wattj Chief oi tho Club, and
evidently a gentleman by no means inclined io “hide
his own light under a bushel?’ Many of his re
marks during the evening, -were, to say the least of
them, exceedingly pert and uncalled for. Mr. Watt
might very well have knowa- that on an occasion like
that referred to, when all present were in the best of
humor, and each vied with the other in his desire to
celebrate the occasion with becoming enthusiasm, a (
little friendly chat across the tables was neither un
ruly nor even impolite. We have had occasion to bo
present at many a festive gathering and national cel
ebration, but at none do we remember to have ever
witnessed a more thoroughly enthusiastic or patri
otic assemblage than was this Every single in
dividual seemed to breathe the very spirit of the oc
casion, and not a single word was dropped by any ot
the eloquent speakers of the occasion, refering
either to their nationality or to bimin wht se honor
they were assembled, but was at once taken up and
cheered to tho very echo. The only thing at all
likely to mar the pleasure of the party was the ri
diculous condition into which the chairman worked
himself, and to judge from his actions and speech,
a stranger might imagine that instead of a refined,
sociable party of gentlemen, Mr. Watt was presiding
over a party of ignorant boors. It is not necessary
at a meeting of the kind that everything should be
done by the chairman, and it was fortunate that on
this occasion such was not the case. A most laugh
able incident of the evening was the chairman bar
gaining with a speaker as to the time he should oc
cupy in addressing the meeting, It was certainly
judicious, but, under the jgircumstances, perfectly
ustifiable.
Numerous toasts were proposed, and drank with
becoming enthusiasm, that of “ The Day we Cele
brate ” being received with the most deafening ap
plause. The principal addresses were those of Mr.
Robert Anderson, who delivered an eloquent and
pleasing [eulogium on the works and writings of the
“Great Wizard;” Mr. Thomas Jeremiah, who was
obliged, in deference to a desire of the meeting, to
address them at some length;; Mr. Wm. Ross Wal
lace, who recited an ode written by himself in honor
of the occasion; Colonel 79th Highlanders,
and Mr. Matthew McDougall,. American Consul to
the Port of Dundee, Scotland. The latter gentleman,
who is an orator of no mean powers, was the recipi
ent of quite an ovation on his rising to address tho
meeting, and spoke with a fervor and feeiing that
could not but have effect on the hearts of all Scotch
men. At a subsequent period of the evening, Mr.
McDougall sang “ The Star Spangled Banner ’’ and a
favorite Scotch ballad in a. manner that delighted
all. Numerous other songs, trios, and musical pieces
were rendered by the members of the club and their
visitors, and after one of tha pleasantest and most
successful meetings possible, the company retired at
an early hour, many old friendships being renewed,
and now ones established. The entire celebration
was conducted in the ablest manner possible. It was
creditable alike to the Caledonian Club, and to our
Scottish citizens throughout the country, and cannot
fail to increase the esteem and respect entertained
for them by their American friends.
BmaiuA-KY EIGHTIETH STREET.
AN OFFICER FIRED AT BY ONE OF THE
THIEVES.—A PORTION OF THE PROPEPvTY
RECOVERED.
A party of burglars on Friday night broke inlo the
dwelling of J. W. Malcolm, at No. 15 East 80th st.
The residents are away in the country, and the
thieves therefore had am;-la opportunity to ransack
the bouse. Bureaus were ripped open, closets ran
sacked, and the house thoroughly searched for
valuables. It is not believed that the thieves obtain
ed much jewelry, and probably no money. They
got together, however, clothing and other effects,
and succeeded in getting away with more or less of
these. Early yesterday, patrolman Hughes, of the
23d Precinct, while passing along East 80th street,
when near Mr. Alai Collins residence, saw a young
man leaving tbe.house with a trunk on his shoulder.
He called to him when the young man dropped the
trunk and fled. The officer rightly conjecturing that
he was a thief, pursued him over fences and through
yards. The fugitive finally drew a revolver and fired
at his pursuer, the shot fortunately not taking effect.
The officer, nothing daunted, rapped for assistance,
and continued the pursuit. He lost sight of the
thief, however, after chasing him for a considerable
distance. The trunk was found to contain about
SBOO worth of silk dresses, laces, and other articles
of ladies’ wearing apparel, and was a portion of the
plunder from Mr. Malcolm’s residence. Search is
being made for the thieves and the remainer of the
stolen property.
A New Police Mutual Aid Associa
tion. —For a considerable time past, many of the
officers of the Police Department, of the rank of ser
geant and upward, and the clerks in the various de
partments of Police Headquarters, have been anxious
to form a new life insurance association. Some were
dissatisfied with thepreßent,Police Mutual Aid Associ
ation. A meeting was called for yesterday at 11 o’clock
A. M., and at that hour there were present in the
trial room nearly 150 persons, including the superin
tendent, inspectors, and a considerable proportion of
the captains, sergeants, and clerks of the Police and
Health Boards. Inspector Dilks presided. A com
mittee, consisting of Superintendent Kelso, Captains
Thom, Allaire, and Walsh, and Sergeant Beeching,
was appointed to nominate officers for the new asso
ciation, which it was proposed should ba known as
the “Police Mutual Benefit Association.” The com
mittee, after a brief absence, returned and offered
the following nominations, and the nominees were
unanimously elected: President, Inspector George
W. Dilks; Vice President, Col. George S. Hastings,
Chief Clerk of the Board of Health; Treasurer, Geo.
P. Gott, book-keeper for Commissioner Barr, Treas
urer of the Board of Police; Secretary, Vincent Clark,
of the chief clerk’s office. The association has al
ready 210 names, and the members think there is no
doubt of its success. The association adjourned to
meet at the call of the President. It is understood
that at the next meeting a resolution will be adopted
' that five dollars will be assessed on each member oi
the association on the occasion of every death.
! Threatened Pestilence in Jersey
City.— Jersey City is seriously threatened with a
pestilence in consequence oi the odors arising from
1 dead and putrid animals that have been accumulat-
I ing in various parts of the city during the past week.
■ Heretofore the contractor for removing dead animals
conveyed them to a bone boiling establishment on
j the Hackensack meadows, but in consequence of
1 having been served with an injunction by tho
; authorities of the town of Union, ho has no means
of disposing of the oarcases of animals. Ovor twenty
j five of which have accumulated since Monday. The
City Inspector reports that some of those have be
come so decomposed that they will not hold together
to be removed. On Friday noon over forty laborers
t employed on the street improvement at the corner
b of Montgomery and Gilbert streets, 6th Ward, were
compelled to leave off work on account of the into!-
1 erab’.e stench arising from a dead horse in that
) vicinity.

blame in the matter, and declared tho wound was

The Good Samaritans at Work.—
On the evenins of August Ufa, Grand Chief Wm.
Sturtevant, of the State of Now Jersey, opened a
new lodge in Jersey City, viz.: Industry Union
Lodge, cf I. O. G. 8. and D. of S. About twenty-on®
persons signed the charter, from the ranks of what
is termed the “middle class” of our citizens.
Among those present (who are distinguished in tha
order) were the sisters Barlow, of New York, and
Susan R. Taylor, of Hartford, Conn, the first of
whom addressed the audience at length with facta
and vivacity; the second rendered service rather by
actions than words or speech-making; but both ar®
highly esteemed. Truly, the lodge is started under
favorable auspices, and in a busy vineyard. They
certainly have one of the handsomest lodge rooma
in the order, at the hall corner of Grove and South
Fifth street, Jersey City. In the course of the exer
cises the following officers were installed: W. C.»
J. G. L. Crawford; V. C., Arthur Sanderson; P. C.,
LewisE. Russell; Secretary, Geo. Sanderson; Treas
urer, Nicholas W. Pease; P. D., Julia Craw.ord;
P. P. D., Josephine Pease.
The Canadian Annexationists C;<le
bration. —The Canalian Union Club, of this city,
held their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday last,
Prof. Batchelor presiding. The general routine be
ing gone through with, the President proposed that
the club should consider upon a suitable day where
on the Annexationists of their country residing in
New York might offer tributes of gratitude and sym
pathy to the United States. The 12ch of October,
the anniversary of the discovery of America by Co
lumbus, was settled upon as the most appropriate
day for lhe Annexationists to celebrate in honor of
their cause. It was further arranged that a de
putation of Canadian citizens ot tho United States
should confer with the Hon. Mr. Papineau, tho re
nowned Annexationist of Lower Can
ada, requesting him to come on here and open tho
first mass meeting of colonists ever he d in Naw
York or the United States, and to attend at the cele
bration to be held on the 12th of October next. Prof.
Batchelor, President of the Canadian Union Club,
leaves New Yorl# to-day for Canada. If possible ho
will organize annexation meetings in the prinaipal
towns oi Lower Canada, and investigate how far the
Cannadians of annexation tendencies are matured
for urging the work they hope one day to accom
plish.

of an unknown man, having light hair'and complex
ion, sandy goatee, and, wearing dark vest and pants,
and dark shirt, was found in the North River, off
Pier No. 25.
The body of another man, aged about fifty years,
was found in the water off Governor’s Island. Both

BKOOKLYM GOSSIP.
Manufactures in Brooklyn—A Sew Charity
—Nuptial Infelicity—The Scotiish Games
-Etc.
LYONS SILKS AND NOTTINGHAM LACES
are soon to be added to the manufactures of Brook
lyn, and largely increase its industrial resources.
Mr. A. J. Jennings, of New York, has commenced
the construction in Park avenue near Hall street, of
a capacious and elegant building, the work on which
is rapidly progressing, which is for the manufacture
of these fabrics. Its .size is to be 144 by 50 feet, and
five stories high, with a Mansard roof, and at an es
timated cost of $40,000. A large amount of capital ia
invested in the undertaking, which, if successful,
will be largely increased. It is said that when th®
works are in full operation, a thousand females and
nearly as many males will be employed in the estab
lishment. A chief reason for selecting Brooklyn for
this important enterprise is the discovery that th®
Ridgewood water is chemically well adapted for
dyeing purposes. Every year add to th®
numbers, resources, manufactures and influence of
Brooklyn, and people are fast finding out that it is a
eity where life is really worth living.
BAPTIST BENEVOLENCE
in Brooklyn is manifesting itself in a marked de
gree, and in a manner that must accomplish great
good. The Baptist Association Union has commenced
the erection, on Greene and Throop avenues, of a
spacious and splendid building, to be used as
A HOME FOR THE INFIRM POOR
of the denomination. It is to cost $135,000, and fur
nish accommodation for about one hundred poor
persons. So beneficent and necessary an enterprise
calls loudly upon Brooklyn’s well-to-do citizens for
generous patronage and support.
THE SCOTTISH GAMES
of the Brooklyn Caledonian Society took place on
Thursday last, at Myrtle Avenue Park, in the pres
ence of an immense and festive gathering, and wer®
very successful. The festivities at the Park were
preceded by a fine street parade, which excited much
interest and admiration. All the games were vigor
ously competed for, and rewarded by medals and
money.
Quite a number of cases of
ELOPEMENT, ADULTERY, AND DIVORCE,
transpired in this city during the week. Josiah
Newman, a prominent member of the Methodist
Church, and an officer of the Methodist Church,
eloped on Monday last, with a Miss Cornelia Strong.
Previous to his departure he sent his wife to th®
country, drew all the money he had in th® .bank,
about SI,OOO, and left without indicating in any way
his objective point. Both parties were in good re
pute up to the time of their departure. Mrs. New
man and three children are left totally unprovided.
Newman and his paramour have been hotly pursued
since their departure, but thus far without; avail.
A DECREE OF DIVORCE
was last week granted by Justice Barnard, of tha
Kings County Supreme Court, in the case of Anna
Scheinert, against Ferdinand Schienert, in favor of
the plaintiff. The particulars of this case, which
were of a gross and outrageous character, have here
tofore been reported in the Dispatch and need not
be repeated now.
FOR AN ALLEGED ADULTERY.
Samuel W. Waldron demands from the Suprema
Court an absolute divorce from his wife, Anna B.
Waldron. The complaint sets forth that the parties
were married on the 12th of August, 1851. The acts
of adultery are alleged to have been committed at
No. 22 Concord street, Brooklyn, with one Edward
A. Cleveland, and on the corner of Fulton and Pine
