Last Saturday the "Enterprise" Base Ball Club of this city, and the "Carondelet" Club of Carondelet, played a match game for a ball, in which the St. Louis boys came out "first best" by large odds, leaving the Carondelet players fairly behind, according to a report of the game which has been sent us by Master Plant, the Scorer for the "Enterprise." We learn, however, that the beaten party are not yet satisfied, and that another game is to be played to-day.
