(return match)

(NYC: “Such a decidedly one sided game we have not seen for some time. There were but two or three of the Union party whose play was above mediocrity, …. A feature of this match was the prompt manner in which the sneering remarks of some of the big boys in the crowd of spectators, on the play of the Unions, were suppressed by the Eckfords. Such action, taken so promptly, was very creditable to the club. The fact is, all these troubles from outsiders, arise from the class of club followers that are present at every match; and these fellows, like the runners in the Fire Department, are under no control whatever except their own evil passions.”)
