A base ball match between the Buckeye Club, of Cincinnati, and the Union, of this city, took place on the Union grounds yesterday. The Cincinnatians came off victorious, the score being: Buckeye Club 25; Union Club, 8. The day was a splendid one, the weather being most magnificent. To-day the Buckeye Club play the Empire.
