The case of Mark Baldwin, one of the pitchers of the New York Club, against President Von der Ahe, of St. Louis, for defamation of character, was again postponed for three months Jan. 2, at Philadelphia, on the presentation of a doctor's certificate by Frank S. Elliott, attorney for the defendant, setting forth the fact that the St. Louis magnate was unable to be in attendance. It will probably come to trial on the date set this time, if Mr. Von der Ahe's deposition has to be taken at St. Louis.
