The Olympic base ball club of Alle
gheny City left yesterday on the 1:40
tram for Cincinnati, to playa game with
the celebrated Red Stocking club of that
city. The match comes off to-day.
They also play tomorrow with the Buck
eyes, another Cincinnati club. We hope
they may come off victors in both
— matches, but this can hardly be expected,
as the "Reds" have vanquished all the
crack clubs throughout the States, and
are now about starting on a trip to Cali
fornia to engage in friendly contests
with the clubs on the Pacific.
EDITORS GAZETTE: "An Immense
Grape Vine" is the beading of a notice in
your paper of September 8, taken from a
California paper. It certainly is a big
thing, but Greene county, Pa., can beat it
in size of wood. On the banks of Dunk
and creek (where oil ought to be,) there
are two large vines standing within ten
feet of each other, the one meamuring
thirtysix inches and the other forty
eight inches iu circumference. The
thickest one rises about fifty or sixty
feet before it takes hold of the nearest
tree; it then spreads over several trees,
but was so high up I could not see wheth
er it bad any fruit upon it or not. So you
see, Messars. Editors, California may - be
ahead on big trees, but Greene county,
Pa., is entitled to the belt for having the
largest place "where the belt ought to
go. ' yet heard from. D.

Tne vast amount of PLANTATios BIT
TERS now being sold and shipped from
New York is almost incredible. Go when
and where you will—along the wharves
and piers, and' at the depots—you will
see great piles of these Bitters awaiting
shipment and conveyance to every nook
and corner of the country, and to 'the
hundreds of foreign ports. They are
very popular among all classes of people,
and are conceded to be just the thing for
this climate. No Bitters have yet been
introduced which have beome so de
servedly popular and worthy of patron
age, to all who require a tonic and stim
ulant. They are 'prepared with pare St.
Croii Rum, Calisaya Bark, and all the
world knows fall well what beneficial
results accrue from these combinations.

The Davenport Brothers.
These renowned gentlemen have
achieved 'so much of fame that at one
time the whole world was talking of
them. The proceedings.at their seances
are of so startling, -wonderful and appar r
ently super-natural a character that at
one, time many intelligent persons be
lieved that there was some power more
than human in concert with them. The
Wonderful brothers did not deny that
their prodigies were of spiritual origin,
for they found that it paid much'better
to have such an Impression afloat, but
now that the public has been dispos
sessed of the idea, they no longer assume
to have more than an uncommonly mys
terious repertoire of tricks, of a perfectly
human and earthly character. The Day
