The Browns and the Detroits and the invited guests left for Detroit on a special train, consisting of three sleepers, a dining-car and a baggage-car, at 7:30 o'clock last night. Each of the teams has a Pullman sleeper, and the other is for the use of the guests and Directors. The run to Detroit will be a fast one, the train being scheduled to arrive there at 10 o'clock this morning. The teams play in the City of the Straits this afternoon, and then go to Pittsburg, where the fourth game of the series will be played to-morrow.
