At Prof. Henry's Hall a ball was given on Tuesday night by the Base Ball Clubs of the city, for the benefit of the poor. As an evidence of the extent of this affair, we transfer from the programme, to our columns, a list of the Committee of Arranagements: Hon. James S. Thomas, James Yule, Empire Club; E. Donnelly, Baltic Club; E.J. Grace, Resolute Club; J.M. Williams, Hope Club; W.R. Peterson, Atlantic Club; J.J. Spaulding, Commercial Club; W.J.L. Stewart, National Club. The receipts aggregated about five hundred dollars above expenses, and the ball may be safely set down as the largest and must successful that has been given in the city this year.
