Missouri State Base Ball Convention. - A preliminary meeting for the formation of a State Convention was held at the Union Club Rooms, on the 21st ult., at which sixteen city clubs were represented. It was resolved at this meeting that the First Annual Convention of the Missouri State Base Ball Association be held at Philharmonic Hall, in the city of St. Louis, on Wednesday, April 22d, at 2 o'clock P.M. This Convention is authorized by the National Association, and is intended both to lessen the expense occasioned by each club being obliged to send delegates East every year, as, under the proposed system, each State Association sends two delegates to the National Convention; and also, to afford a nearer tribunal for the trial of matters of differences between clubs belonging to the State. A cordial invitation is extended to clubs throughout the State, to send each two delegates, with credentials, to represent them at this Convention.
