A Bit Of Understatement

There is every indication that the base ball season for 1876 will be one of unusual activity. Several new clubs have been formed, and all the old organizations remain in the field with re-enforcements. Preparations have been made for several important matches in April. The most noteworthy of these are the games between the Chicago and St. Louis clubs, which will take place the latter part of April. The movement initiated by the professional players of the West, which has resulted in a National League of professional clubs, will probably have considerable influence, it is thought, upon the summer campaign.
