ON Saturday last our Nine went to Taunton to play the first game with the club at that place. The Nine at present is made up of six of last year's players, one Freshman, and two members of the Class Nine of '77. The Tauntons are one of the best amateur clubs in the State, so that too much cannot be said in praise of our men for defeating, in their newly organized state and without the services of their regular pitcher, so strong a team. The game was very exciting, and well played, comparatively few errors being made, while the batting was above the average. The Tauntons took the lead in the first inning and kept it until the fourth, when the score was even; from this time until the last man was out it was anybody's game. On our side Tower and Leeds distinguished themselves both at the bat and in the field; Wright and Thayer played with but one error each, and Tyng showed that he only needed a little practice to become a first-class catcher. Of the Tauntons, Sullivan played third brilliantly and faultlessly, and Carpenter captured all the flies that came to centre field.

Our Nine this year seem thoroughly in earnest, and determined to wipe out the defeats of the last two seasons; and with honest work and steady practice there is no reason why they should not. At any rate they may well feel satisfied with their first appearance.

The following is the score:-
