"The Newark Club in a game on Wednesday in East Newark, with nine players, made 23 aces in one inning, and the Orientals the following day with six players made 28 aces in one inning."


Newark Daily Advertiser June 16, 1855


The article in the Newark Daily Advertiser begins with a brief summary of a game between the Empire and Eagle Clubs of New York, noting that, "The game [the Empire - Eagle game] consisted of 21 aces and 3 hands out, all out."  This sentence immediately precedes the above one sentence account of the Newark - Oriental game, adding further evidence that the Newark game was not played by New York rules
