Having heard the report, on our streets, that the Defiance Base Ball Club were challenged by the Lightning Club, of Jackson, for a game, and declined, as they were returning from Marble Hill, I desire to say that we were solicited to play a game for fun, but having, on Saturday afternoon, played for three hours, and danced until 12 A.M., the same night, added to the trip, we were worn and fatigued too much to stop; but hold ourselves in readiness to respond to all communications coming from the constituted authority of any Club in Southeast Missouri. Respect'y,
Will A. Ritter,
President Defiance B.B.C.

We return our thanks to the young gentlemen composing the Lightning Base Ball Club, at Jackson, for an invitation to be present at their ball at the McGuire House to-night; but regret our inability to join them, as we are busy now, day and night, printing election tickets. These boys do nothing by halves; and the sparkling eyes and cheery looks of the Jackson girls are temptations which we never forego when it is possible to avoid it. The party to-night is in honor of the Defiance Club, who play a challenge game with them this afternoon. It will be a generous and jubilant gathering, we guarantee.
