(NYT: “The game which was begun on a former occasion between these Clubs having been brought to an unsatisfactory conclusion by the rain, they met yesterday to settle the mooted question of superior skill; and after the full number of innings had been played out, it was shown that the Harlems had concluded to export the ball—the pledge of victory—to New-Jersey, the first one they have been compelled to deliver up this season. The Eurekas won golden opinions from the spectators for their brilliant fielding and successful batting, and the general opinion was they were inferior to no Club save the Excelsiors, of Brooklyn.”)

(NDA: “The Newarkers gained the victory, and were thus enabled to bring home the ball of the Harlem Club, the first which has been acquired by any Base Ball Club of this city in the present season.
