The announcement that the Pythian, of Philadelphia, would play the Alert, of Washington, D.C., (both colored organizations) on the 16th inst., attracted quite a concourse of spectators to the grounds of the Athletic, Seventeenth street and Columbia avenue, Philadelphia. The game progressed finely until the beginning of the fifth innings, when a heavy shower of rain set in, compelling the umpire, Mr. E. H. Hayhurst, of the Athletic, to exit game. The score stood at the end of the fourth innings: Alert, 21; Pythian, 18. The batting and fielding of both clubs were very good. Mr. Frederick Douglass was present and viewed the game from the reporters’ stand. His son is a member of the alert.
