8 SPORTING. Tho Coming Hilliard Matches In Chicago—-Tho Trigger. Sporting Matters at tho East. Mr. Henry Manholmor, member of a well known of a billiard-table manufacturing firm of this city, was yesterday appointed stake holder for tho first match between Übassyand Doseungor, and forfeit money amounting to 1125 a eldo has boon deposited in bis bands. The game, ns was stated in yesterday's Tribune, will bo a throe-ball one, and will bo played with 2% inch balls on a Oollondor table, Bossungorro reiving tho odds of a discount. It will bo playod on Thursday evening, at the Amphitheatre, on Clinton street, Mr. Foloy having boon successful In engaging it for that evening only. Whore tho other two games will bo playod cannot bo stated, bat It will ho in tho largest hall that can bo se cured in tho city. Tho audience at tho first match will undoubtedly bo a tremendous ono. Every amateur billiard-player in tbo city seems determined to bo present, Judging from tbo number of questions that woro put to Tom Foloy yesterday concoming'tho place of playing and tho possibility of scouring eligible seats. When Uis considered that Boosunger is almost, if not fully, the equal of any throo-ball player in tho country, it can bo seen that tho game will be os exciting as any over played in Chicago. Übassy will make every effort to win tho first game, be cause it will really bo tbo most difficult ono of ibe three to win, and a largo amount of money will ho bet against him. His gamo with llhlnos on Sunday afternoon did not impress tho spec tators very favorably, but in the evening bo playod 200 points with Tom Foloy, and astonish ed him by making tho requisite number in four innings, tbo score being 2, 50, 60, 88. Thomas played tho French game but Utile bettor than bo can speak tho French language, making only cloven points. There woro only a fow persons present at tho exhibition, and they woro princi pally sporting men, who had formed uut ft poor opinion ot his skill, owing to tho way ho played In tho afternoon. When tho gamo closed, however, they confessed freely that they had ndvor soon such billiard playing before, and that (hoy behoved that Übassy could givo respectable odds to any of our American players. Those men will bo found hot ting heavily on the game to bo playod ou Thurs day evening. If Tom Foloy is possessed of the* sense ho is generally credited with, ho will not charge more than 60 cento for a general admis sion ticket to that gamo. Tho reserved seats may bo put at 75 cents or sl, but tho immense amount of epaco away from the immediate vicin ity of tbo billiard-table should be disposed of at a cheaper rate. Tho management will find a highly remunerative audience in tho house if it adopts ibis plan. Last evening, in Foley’s H&il, Übassy dis counted George Sloeson a game of 170 points, and was defeated by 35. His total score was 605, and his average almost 9. His largest run was 63. Sloeson played remarkably well for ono who makes no pretentions to throo-ball billiards, averaging nearly 6. Ho xnado several doublo flguro runs, tbo highest being 24. This afternoon at 3 o’clock Übassy will play an exhibition gamo at Doty & B bines’ hall, prob ably with Mr. Blanca. PIOEON-SnOOTINO. 3a next Friday afternoon, Capt. Bog&rdas and Abo Kloinman will shoot at 100 single birds, twonty-ono yards rise and eighty yards boundary, for a stake of SIOO a sido. The match will occur at Dexter Park.

This It picked up bodily, and car ried it across tbo street, laying it down nono too gently against a now frame dwelling on tho somor, brooking all tho windows of tho houso, and causing it to totter. It skipped hence to a small frame cottage, which it picked op and carried about fivo foot. It then descended to littlo pranks, ono of the moat amusing of which was tbo pick ing up of ft boy out of a wagon, in which woro several barrels of swill, and, turning him head down, deposited him in that position in a barrel of swill, and as quickly turned tho barrel over, thus saving tho boy from a fearful death. Tho lateness of tho hour prevents any further account of this young tornado. LAMP-POSTS.

It is therefore argued that thoro would bo a peculiar fitness in referring to tho Commit tee seeking tho Union of two Churches all peti tions and overture, asking for a change in tho nature of tho elders' office.

The final decision will bo given, it iu be loved, to-morrow evening. In the Assembly to-night, Attornoy-Qon. Barlow, who was called upon by resolution of tho Houbo for bis opinion wbotbor tho dividends by tbo Erie Railway Company on fraudulently issued slock could bo legally paid out of tho treasury of tbo Company, and whether tho Com pany could not bo restrained from paying It, submitted a report, iu wbiob bo says that there can bo no doubt that tbo transaction and issuing of bonds and thoir conversion into stock was illegal, fraudulent, and void, but there is a diffi culty in reaching a remedy. .It would not now bo possible to discriminate which la the stock tainted, and which is not. Tho Company cannot right fully pay those dividends on such frouduloutly issued stock as can bo identified and traced into the hands of persons who took it with the knowledge of fraud. A suit, ho says, would fail of any practical results. Mr. Barlow closes by saying: 41 Tho only remedy for such viola tions of law, if it can ho'callod a remedy, is tho criminal punishment of tho guilty officers of tho railroad, and tho summary proceeding of a for feiture of tho charter, and lb is no doubt compe tent for tho Legislature to limit by law tho scales of faro and freight, and thus effectually sot bouuds to tho amount of dividends which shall bo paid on this stock.” Knilroud.
