A convention of the base ball clubs of this city and State will be held at the Polytechnic Institute on Wednesday next, to make some arrangements required by the action of the National Base Ball Convention, which, in December last, made it incumbent on persons attending their meetings to produce credentials from State Associations.
A postponement has been made of the anniversary of the Empire Base Club, which will now be held on Wednesday next at the Veto Grounds.
