Mr. Hicks Hayhurst, who we stated in our last had bought pools on the Athletic and Atlantic game, explicitly denies the charge, he never having bought a pool or bet on a game of baseball in his life. Moreover, on that very day he was remonstrating against the countenance given to pool selling in New York. We give this denial with pleasure. The former statement was published on good authority, but investigation shows it to have been a case of mistaken identity, our informant, who was in the pool market, mistaking another purchaser for Mr. Hayhurst.
