A REMARKABLE GAME. We last week noticed the great ball game played at New Haven ou the 30th ult. The New Haven Daily Journal gives a full description of the game, lroih which we extract the following : AHliniifrli flip cram vvaa lint rnllpfl un til 4 o'clock, the bleachers were filled to overflowing, ine management naa tan en great precautions to have room enouch for the crowd, hnr mire tho space was inadequate to the number of 1 1 .1 11 people who iurneu oui. js.opes were stretched from the ends of the bleachers around the field and it was not long before they were being swayed back and forth by a struggling mass of humanity. from 3 o'clock tne people came in a steady stream and occupied every availar ble spot to see the struggle.

New Haven did by far better work than the visitors, both at the bat and in the field, but owing to that article known all over in base ball as "luck," they were unable to score.
