(NYT: “The Atlantics are now looked upon as the most successful Club of New-York or Brooklyn, they having gone on from one victory to another for a long period. Their first nine are in constant practice, and also enjoy the advantage of having played for a great while together. As is always the case when the Atlantics play, either in New-York or Brooklyn, a large assemblage of votaries of the pastime were present to witness the trial.”)
