Jersey City Neuit. New Haven, June 27, 1389.—Remem bering the victory they won from the leaders at Oakland Park almost a fort night ago, the erstwhile tailenders played ball for keeps yesterday afternoon,, and consequently gathered another game from Manager Power’s pets. The local club’s success was due to Sworbach’s brilliant pitching and the lively manner in which they touched up Landmauu’a delivery. Seven scattered singles and five long files were all the visitftrs were able to get from the sulky twlrler. In retnrn he struck out ten of the men they sent to the bat, assisted in a neat double play and made nine fielding assists. From Land mann’s pitching the local club batted two three-baggers, eleven singles and nine long flies. Five of the latter were deftly captured by “Patsey” Friel and three by The encounter was hard fought in the earlier part, the Jerseymen scoring once in their first chance. The local club did not tally until their fourth inning, and then they only tied the score. Each club added another run in its fifth heat. In the sixth Inning the home club took the lead by scoring again. A butting streak aided It to double its runs in the seventh. In their last inning the Jerseyites rallied but their work only yielded a single run. The score follows:— RKW HAVES. I JERSEY CITY. R. lB. rO.A.E.' II. lB.PO.A.E.

The semi-professional Lees, of Brook, lyn, gave the team of the New Jersey Athletic Club, who should have won with ease, a tongh tussle for victory yesterday afternoon on the Avenue A grounds at Bergen Point. They freely hit Beebe’s delivery, dropping the ball frequently just over the inlielders’ heads for safe hits. In addition Al. Williams hustled the ball In the eighth inning far to the right for a home run. The hits were too scattered to be very effective for run getting. Nine were made in the lirst seven Innings, and onlyXtwo runs were tallied. Worth's pitching was also batted fairly ■well by the local team, although they were unable to bunch the hits and there by earn the runs they gathered. Catcher Collins’ wild throwing and his brother’s errors contributed materially to the home club’s success. A drive for three bags to the left by Billy Wild preceded William’s home run and earned the applause of the spectators. Up to the seventh inning the local club played a perfect fielding game, making three brilliant double plays in the first four innings. The visitors came within an ace of tie ing the score in their last chance through two clean hits, a sacrifice hit, a wild pitch and a base on balls. Tho Bcore;— LEES. | NEW JERSEY A. G. R.1B.I-O.A.E.

ATLANTIC ASSOCIATION MATTERS. Contracts and Releases, and an Effort to Fill the Vacant Franchise. Secretary Braden, of the Atlantic Asso ciation, issued yesterday the fpUowing circular:—“Contracts—With Wilkesbarre M. P. Hines; Hartford, J. F. Smith aud Nick Handiboe. Released—June 22, by Easton, A. L. Moore, John Burke. C. W. Trask, W. E. Sullivan, Nick Handiboe, P. O’Couuell, A. F. Ponoghne, Eddie Doyle, F. Foulkrod. T. F. Turner and M. P.

A special meeting of the Atlantic Asso ciation was held last evening in the Fifth Avenue Hotel, New York city, for the purpose of taking action toward lilliug the vacancy occasioned by the disband ment of the" Easton Club.

The committee will report tomorrow morning at the Wyom ing Hotel, in Scranton, to the Association. It was also decided to reserve the defunct club’s players for the purchase of the franchise, and in consequence those signed by Association clubs will be re leased when the uew club is admitted. » THE LARKIN8-HOOK FIGHT. The Men Will “Weigh in” Today and Meet Within Forty-eight Hours. Jimmy Larkins, of this city, and Bill Hook, of Birmingham, England, will light within the next forty-eight hours and within one hundred miles of this city for the 122 pound championship of the world $500 a side und an extra purse of $600. During the day Hook will arrive from At lantic City with Tommy Barnes, his traiuer, and Ned Holske, his hacker. Ac companied by a small party of friends Hook will meet Larkins and several of his friends at an uptown Turkish bath establishment in New York city, and both will “weigh in” for the battle. Neither must pull the beam at more than 133 pounds. The near approach of the nght has in creased the interest and excitement among the sporting fraternity of the county. There is great hnstling among the local contingent to secure tips to the battle ground, and the chances are that a considerable number will be disappointed in their expectations to witness the fray, as the attendance of spectators has been limited to a certain few, with the prices of tickets placed at $10 each. Hook has been in active training during the past four weeks, and is reported to 1ms in the best of condition. He is conlideut of success, and his backer declares that he will have a regular picnic with Larkins. They are unxious to back their opinions with a large quantity of boodle. The money will find ready takers at even terms. Larklus has been undergoing a rigid course of training during the past three weeks at the quarters of the Scottisli Americau Athletic Club in tills city, and he appears to be in better condition than ever. This is his lirst battle since his light with Steele, of Boston, whom he de feated In seven rouuds. He is down to weight. He has $350 to place upon him self, so conlideut is he of victory. Pugilistic Cross Counters. Tommy Kelly, the Harlem Spider, now says he is perfectly willing to accept the offer of the Troy Cribb Club, to light “Chappie” Morau, the 105-pound chant' pion of this city, for the *500 purse which the club has volunteered to make the ob ject of a battle between tho bantams. The pair will probably come together within a month. Sidnev Crawford wants a go at “Chap pie” Morau. Frank Donovan, or any other 105-pound man. within six weeks, for from $100 to $500 a side, and says his money can be found at William llorst man’s, Woodhull and Hicks street, Brook lyn. __ SUMMRNIGHTS FESTIVAL.

Party Assembled In What Was Once the K vans Mansion, but Is Now an Klognnt and Well-Appointed Club House. Tho Toffey Guards threw open the doors of their new home last night and invited their friends to inspect its interior appointments. It is the old Evans Man sion, in Willow Court, converted into a modern club house—as a cozy, and bright as the tiest of them. The scene in and about the place last evening was impressively picturesque, and drew a large crowd in addition to t-h lucky ones who gained admission. It was simply a mammoth tableau vivant, with a circular frame of flags aud Chinese lan terns. Calcium and other lights shone brightly on the picture. Tlie remodelled mansion was filled with a brilliunt company. The parlor is 17x33 feet in dimension. In the centre of the floor is the Guard’s monogram. Handsome pictures, bronzes and bric-a-brac adorn the walls and man tels. The main reception room is hand somely furnished, and is also embellished with pictures and bronzes, aud is sepa rated from an adjoiuing room by heavy silk portieres. On tho centre-table last night was a bed of flowers, aud a crayon portrait of Colonel Toffey rested on an easel diagonally across from the entrance. On tho second floor are located the billiard and card rooms. The Reception Committee last night consisted of William White, Thomas A. Butler, W. J. Thompson, Henry Borne maun and Harry Arthur. Prior to dancing the guests were entertained otherwise in fli o no J'l nr THE ENTERTAINMENT. Good music by a selected orchestra was one ot the principal features of the pro gramme. Mr. Harry C. Arthur sang "Near It,” and “Don’t Blame Me.” Some excellent club swiugiug was done by E: F. Greis, assisted by his brother, the tiniest club swinger iu the world. Dave Deed sang humorous selections iu his own inimitable man ner, and Oscar Kent rendered "Goodby, Sweetheart, Goodby,” George W. Pairson gave a recitation. The Wynn oke B. C. Quartette, Messrs. Will F. Schum. P. O. Stutzman, J. P. Stutzman and J. H. McCaffrey, sang several pieces harmoniously, and Mr. J. P. Stutzman gave a baritone solo. The mimic, Her man Gndewlll, of Hoboken, whose re markable resemblance to Bill Nye is a subject of comment, sang "His Funeral Will Be Tomorrow,” and his great laugh ing song. Mr. Gudewill’s humor is irre sistible. THE GEESTS. In the throng were Colonel and Mrs. John J. Toffey, Captain Charles, Captain John Graham, Lieutenant and Mrs. W. T. Markham, Lieutenant John W.

The Hoboken Dramatic Association gave a pleasing production of “Enoch Arden’’ last evening. In the interval be tween the first aud second acts the Second Regiment Field Baud, under the direction of Drum Major Louis C. Philibert, gave an exhibition drill. Enoch Arden was played by Mr. John J. Cuddlhy, who car ried his part well. Miss Tillie Huncke, as Annie Lee, made the hit of the evening. She is an emotional actress of unusual ability. She has a clear, sweet voice, and she sang the interpolated lullaby—by Professor Roundsvflle Williams — in a most affecting manner. Joseph A. Smith, as Philip Ray, scored a success; aud so did Charles E. Dougherty iu the comedy part of Peter Lane. The Cecillian Quartette sang several selections and were recalled thrice. The quartette was comprised of E. Gbrmau, first tenor; E. Boys, second tenor; W. 1’. Dickson, first bass, and J. Whitlidge, second boss. It would not be fair to close without saying something about the little village dancers. Pretty little May Kivlon, at tired in a pink dress, led the dancers. She Is barely eight years of age, but she went through her part splendidly. The other dancers were Annie Kevlon, Lillie Bunt, Lily Flesey, C. Kevlon, C. Wareing and J. Kelly. Master C. Wareing and Miss Maggie Henry deserve mention for the wny in which they played as Walter and Esther, the children. Marriage Failed in Two Months.

Peter is about fifty flve years of age and his wife is about twenty-live. The cause of their trouble w^s the disparity of their aces.

MIONOFS FAREWELL A Romance of the Fire in the Opera Comique, at Paris. [Letter from « young girl residing In the country to her loteaded.| Paris, Slay 25. You reproach mo, my friend, for not writing to you more frequently. This reproach gives me pleasure, because it is an indication that 1 am constantly in your thoughts. But you add that as for myself, 1 scarcely ever think of you, even when the fever of Parisian life gives me time. To punish you for your unjust suspicions, sir, 1 shall make no reply to that remark; besides, mamma has told me that a young girl should conceal her feelings. Yea, during the five days that we have been in Paris I have not taken the time to think of you, there! Is not this my right? We have so much to da At 2 a. m. we are still on our feet, and at 8 o’clock In the morning we are up again. Not an instant of repose; not a single minute which can be devoted to thoughts of you, sir. Wo are hardly dressed be fore we must stop into the carriage and be driven swiftly—to the Louvre, my friend? No, to the Printemps: then to the Bon( Marche, and as far as the Saint Antoine quarter; for we must not only adorn your bride, we have also to think of furnishing the house where you are to take your wife. Poor horses! How glad they must be to enter the stable in the evening. 1 will not comparo myself to the horses, or you might be led to suppose that I would be glad to go home. Paris is very amusing; papa and mamma have re newed their youth. They say it is due to the atmosphere of Paris. From one end of tlie day to the other papa lias ! a succession of new ideas, and he is con i tinually urging us and hurrying us for ward. We have hardly reached a place before he wants to take tis somewhere else; he calls us tortoises, and declares that we will never be able to see every thing. All, my friend, Parisian life is not a sinecure. Mamma is well pleased, and wants papa to take her everywhere lie used to go when lie was a young man. So we breakfast in one restaurant and dine in another. “I know all the good places, you see." These words are continually in papa’s mouth. Very well, let me tell you, between ourselves, papa did not lead a dull lifo when he was a young man, and he must have spent his parents’ money very freely. Yet the other day, when poor Henry asked him for a larger allowance, he answered that in his time young people were satisfied with cheap restaurants, and that his son ought to follow his example. And, behold, papa tells us today that when he was young, his good places were Vefour’s, the Paris cafe, the English cafe, Ledoyen’s, and many other restaurants where we eat a lot of good things that are not mentioned in mamma’s “Perfect Cook Book.” Last evening we dined in a restaurant where papa asked if a waiter named Eugene was still there: and on receiving an af firmative reply, expressed a desireio see the man, saying that Eugene used to wait upon him in old times when he fre quented the place. Eugene came, but he was not papa’s old waiter. It ap peared that this one was Mr. Dumas’ Eugene. He seemed to answer just as well, and pupa was delighted. Speaking of Mr. Dumas reminds me to tell you that 1 would have like very well to see “Francillon," but they told me that it is not a proper play for young girls. As we passed the Palais Royal, papa and mamma looked at the bill, and they talked to each other in a low tone. 1 could not hear what they said, but it must have been amusing, for they laughed; and mamma said to me: “When you are married your husband will take you there.” So there aro some things which one can’t hear or see before being Papa and mamma are very happy, but I am going to confess the truth to you; as fer myself, I am tired of it. I don't tell them eo. because I do not wish to mar their pleasure. Perhaps Paris is very amusing, but I am tired of it; so you may be happy. It seems to me that I am lost here; and I ask myself contin ually how any one can endure this noisy, distracted and agitated life. It seems impossible that happiness can be found here, since one does not have the time to be happy. Yet I expect to experience some real pleasure this evening, the only pleasure I shall have experienced since being sep arated from you. They are going to take me to the Opera Coinique. It appears that this theatre is one for young girls, and especially for young girls seeking husbands. That is not my case; you know something about the matter, sir, you who have the precious honor of be ing the elect of my heart. So the reason for my pleasure is not that I am going there to meet some one; on the contrary, I would rather feel regret because you will not be there; neither is it the curi osity to see pretty girls display them selves to handsome men. or homely girls flirt with ugly men, in the hope of cap turing husbands; It is tbe play itself. They arc going to perform “Mignon." Knowest thou the laud? Hops nnt this tnnphim? mninnr.fi of poor Mignon recall to you a sweet memory? Do you sometimes think of it again, of that summer evening when I learned to know your heart, when I let you guess mine? Do you recollect? I was seated at the piano, in our parlor at Plessis, and I hummed the song of Mig non, You were playing whist. I sang and I felt, even without looking at you, that you wore not attending to the game, and that your eyes were turned towards me. 1 sang, and 1 was almost afraid to sing. Stealthily I raised my eyes to you, and I saw that you wore very pale, and that your eyes seemed blinded with tears. In my turn I became pale, in my turn I was unspeakably affected, and I ended the song with a sob. Knowest thou the land? Oh, when you came to me with out stretched hands I seemed almost to faint. I waa frozen, and yet it seemed that there was a gentle heat In my heart. I no longer dared to look at you You did not tell me that you loved me, and yet I was sure of it. Our love did not need words for its avowu.1. And now do you understand why I thrill deliciously at the thought of hearing this evening the darling Mignon, not the desperate Mig non of the German poet, but the melan choly Mignon of the dear French com poser, to whom hope remains because she is loved? Knowest thou the land? Oh, my friend, it is not of the land with golden fruits and marble palaces i that I dream. Nor is it of the land with 1 immense houses, six stories in height, j with broad avenues still too narpow for j the crowds which fill them, with its | noisy and tedious pleasures, its perpetual and useless agitation. It is not of the land where the women dye themselves yellow, where the men seem to be mad j men running after something unknown; ‘ where we cannot venture into the streets without incurring the risk of being ; crashed; where pleasure is a task; where i even the activity of tho spirit destroys the peaco of the soul. No, no; it is not j there that I would dwell I Knowest thou the land? The land of my childhood, the land where I grew up in the midst of dear friends, in the little house whose old I walls are decked with rustic vines, and which is concealed from profane eyes by green trees; the land where we live i simply, without display, surrounded by I those whom we love; the land where I ' have been twice bom, to life and to love. ! It is there, there, where thou dwellest, my well beloved, that I long to live, to j live and die in thy presence! Behold, my well beloved, of what I i shall dream this evening, in listening to J Mignon. And am 1 not also your Mignon? On a young girl’s note book found in the ruins of the Opera Comique. “Fire!
