THE PRINCETON BASE-BALL MATCH.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

ON Friday, May 28, a large crowd of the undergraduates and their friends assembled on Jarvis to witness the second game between Princeton and Harvard. There was considerable delay occasioned by trouble in finding an Umpire; Hodges, '74, who had agreed to fill the position, not putting in an appearance. Finally, Mr. Denton, of the Scientific School, was chosen, and consented to act. Game was called at 2.35 with the Harvards at the bat. The first innings closed with a blank for both sides. In the second innings Kent got his first, Thayer went out, when Ernst got a heavy hit to left field which the fielder failed to get in front of, and before the ball could be returned home Kent and Ernst had both scored. The Harvards batted the Princeton pitcher much better than in the first game, and played an almost perfect fielding game. The Princetons were naturally nervous from their loss of sleep the night before and from their defeat at New Haven. Notwithstanding this, they played pluckily, and could have done much better, as the game of the next day shows. For the Harvards, all praise is due Hooper - who pitched with a strained arm - for the plucky way in which he finished the game in his regular position. Thatcher caught, and Tyng's play at third was perfection. In fact, all the members of the Nine did well. For Princeton, where all played so well, it is hard to make a distinction. Although they seemed to be somewhat dissatisfied with some of the Umpire's decisions, they can hardly suppose that his mistakes were due to anything but a lack of good judgment. The score gives all further particulars.

Time of game, 2 h. 5 m.

THE time made at the Cornell Spring Races was two miles in twelve minutes and fifteen seconds, by a six rowing in a shell. The Hobart College Nine beat the Cornell Nine twenty-five to twenty-three in seven innings. The score was kept only of outs and runs. On the whole, we should infer that the Cornell students have yet something to learn in base-ball, if in nothing else.
