The Fourth [of July, in Cincinnati,] was passed in a very quiet manner. A large number spent the day in the country.
About 2,5000 people assembled at the Union Base Ball Grounds this forenoon, to witness the match between the Cincinnatis, of this city, and the Unions of St. Louis. The Unions were badly beaten. The score of the Cincinnatis was 70; Unions, 7.
