A very interesting game of base-ball was played on the Newtown Grounds on Saturday afternoon, August 7, between the Black Owls (colored), of Africa, and the Alers (white), of Plainville. Too much praise can not be given our young friend, T. Corwin Bodine, left fielder of the Alerts, formerly a citizen of this place, and recently an active member of the Newtown Base-ball Club. He made some very fine plays, muffing only one fly, the first of the season. His fielding was very fine; also his heavy batting was a fine feature of his playing, making a home run in the last inning, and has not been heard of since. The following in the score: [Black Owls 41, Alerts 16]
