The Bostons won another victory from the Chicagos, though the game was very different in character from the first one played here. Secretary Young of the League having notified all clubs that the latest ball furnished by Malm was Illegal, one of the old or soft kind tiscd. The fielding was very sharp and Hie hitting rather weak throughout, as might have been expected from the character of the ball. The only run made was by lioul. After the Chicago had been blanked nine times, he hit safe over second and took tlrst.

Three r;uarfHn ApMlntcd of Ills I: s Late, Mid the lot'tor Itemain In the Asylum The C.'anse or Ills Malady and Ilia Present Condition. CMecta! Despatch to Thq B mton Globe.l IxWKi.i., Mass., May It!. -The hearWig in the race of Dr. James C. Ayer, the well-known patent medicine manufacturer, who is now confined in an insane asylum at I'leasantville, X.V., was suddenly concluded in the Middlesex Probate Court today. The proceedings, as may he supposed, have attracted considerable attention on account of the wealth and prominence of Dr. Ayer in the community, and among those who have been present in the aourt-room were many of his old friends and business associates, who were anxious to ascertain from reliable sourees not only the extent of the doctor' alleged insanity, but also to learn if it was true that he is unjustly deprived of his liberty at the instance of mercenary relatives. The man so unfortunate in mental health is fortunate in be!ng possessed of a fortune of some $15,000,000, and on this account the stories concerning his incarceration in the insane asylum have in some instances been of a very painful and exciting nature. This hearing, however, has shown the cruel rumors to have been without any foundation whatever, and established further the fact that the Doctor is hopelessly insane, and that his discharge from the asylum would be fraught with danger to himself and others. The unfortunate man flrstshowed symptoms of insanity about thirteen months ago, just after returning from a trip to Chicago, and among the most prominent manifestations was the writing of a number of strango and improper letters to various persons. The cause was attributed to a too close application to business, added to which was a melancholy disappointment on account of being defeated in an attempt to gain an election to Congress. His friends decided to send him to a fruit-farm in New Jersey, but while being taken through New York City the Doctor became so violent that the assistance of the poliae had to be invoked. He was for a time held in the Bellevue Hospital, in New York, and afterwards confined in a hotel at High Bridge for a few days, but. becoming gradually worse, he was taken to the Bloomingdale Asylum, and subsequently to the i'leasantville institution, where he is now under treatment. THE DOCTOB HOPELESSLY INSANE. It is the opinion of all physicians and experts who have examined his case that the doctor will never fully recover, but it is possible that he may become sufficiently restored as to become harmless and permit of a removal from the restraints of an asylum. Dr. Walker, the Superintendent of the I'leasantville institution, in testifying regarding the case today, said: "It seema to me, as far as I can judge, that Mrs. Ayer and the other members of the family have been guided by one object, and that was tlie best good of Dr. Ayer. I have certainly so understood them, and have certainly so tried to answer them; and in my whole experience of twenty-six years I have never seen a person more anxious that just the right thing should be done, if she could find out what that thing was, than Mrs. Ayer herself. 1 commenced this treatment of Dr. Ayer, 1 confess, with some prejudices against Mrs. A'yer. They have all been wiped out, and my respect and honor for the lady are increased a thousand fold on account of her treatment of her husband, as far as I have seen it." Drs. Tyler, Choate and Clvmer testified substantially the same as Dr, Walker, to the effect that the treatment of Dr. Ayer is the most judicious that can bo adopted under the circumstances, and that the allowance of any greater liberty would be dangerous not only to himself, but to others. It may be added that Dr. Choate, who has given the case very careful attention and under whose personal observation Dr. Aver has been daily for a long time, stated very positively that every care and attention had been paid to him that was possible, and that nothing more could be done to ameliorate his condition so long as his disease continued in its present phase. lie stated that alf times he was very violent, having on several occasions assaulted his wife, Dr. C hoate himself, Mrs. Choate and other attendants, but these paroxysms of violence were of short duration, and when they had subsided the doctor would express the kindest of feelings for those whom a few moments before he had abused in a most outrageous manner. APPOINTMENT OF GUARDIANS. The evidence in the case having been concluded the counsel indulged in a protracted consultation, after which it was agreed to allow the doctor to remain in the asylum, and three guardians were then appointed by the Court in the persons of Benjamin Dean of Boston, F. F. Ayer and Jacob Rogers. Mr. Ayer is a son of the doctor, and Mr. Bogers is a prominent business man in Lowell. Eech gentleman will be required to furnish bonds in the sum of a quarter of a million dollars. NEW ENGLAND SPECIALS.! Parade of the Newburyport Veteran Artil lery Launch of a Steamer.

Eeaolutiona Demanding their Repeal Laid Upon the Table for One Week-Custom House Eegulations, and Other Matters. A special meeting of the Board of Trade was held yesterday afternoon at the Merchants' Exchange, the Hon. J. W. Candler presiding. Mr. Candler, after calling the meeting to order, read a petition signed by prominent merchants asking that the Board would take such action as is necessary to bring the subject of a proper representation of the national products and manufactures of this country at the I'aris Exposition in 1878 before the proper authorities at Washington. Tlie petition was, on motion, referred to the Executive Committee. Mr. Cendler said that he wished to present another matter before the business which called the meeting together was proceeded with, and he hoped that the press would give it prominence. He then read the following: EXTRACT FROM A LETTER written by the Rev. J. V. Vinton, now in Burmah: "From a boy I remember how in all the bazaars in Rangoon American sheeting was the cry that dinned our ears. American goods were regarded so superior thattho hawkers, even while selling goods from England, used to try and pass them off for American. American shipping then crowded our harbor, and had a large part of the carrying trade in their hands. Since the Alabama days all this has come to an end, and few American ships are seen in port, and American cloth is almost unknown in the bazaars. Rangoon is one of the largest shipping ports in the world, and our American shipping might regain the large share they once had in the conveyance of 500.000 tons of rice and other produce shipped to all parts of the worid. Manv articles of American manufacture find their wav to Burmah, but through English channels and in Enclish bottoms. At the present low prices of cloths In this country I am sure the trade in dry goods may be revived. The Americans send giwxls to England, which she reshins to India, while freights from Boston to Rangoon cost no more than from Glasgow to Rangoon. Large quantities of rice, etc., reach America from Rangoon via Glasgow, in English bottoms. At present prices it would he e asy to revive our trade with the East. I am sure that in attacking the commerce of England we can most successfully do so by striking at the outposts and not the citadel. The Inited States consulate in Rangoon Is held by the firm of Bullock Brothers Co., a British firm, who are the agents for the British India Steam Navigation Company, one of the largest lines of Glasgow steamers, running about fifty of the largest steamers. They are also agents for the Patrick Henderson & Co. line to Glasgow. Of course they discriminate against American shipping." Mr. Candler then brietiy stated the object of the meeting, saying that it was called to consider the subjects of the registration of foreign ships and changes in custom house regulations. It is admitted, said he, that the Treasury regulations of custom houses are complicated, and if the merchants meet and study out some necessary changes and make an intelligible report the first and most important Btep will be taken, and if we are properly represented at Washington we shall not only have a hearing, but succeed in our measure. Mr. H. F. Woods then offered THE FOLLOWING RESOLUTION: Whereas, the Boards of Trade of other cities have appointed committees to investigate tlie matter of '1 reasury regulations of Custom Houses with a view of recommending such changes as may tend to a sinipliti-cation thereof, and have requested the co-oporation of the Bcston Board of Trade, lienulreit. That the following committee of seven be appointed by this Board for the service indicated: John V. Cannier, William Enriicott, Jr., Eben D. Jordan. Jerome Jones, H. A. Hill, E. T. Russell, James E. Whitney. The resolution was adopted ly a unanimous vote. The Hon. Joseph S. Ropes said that he had given the Secretary a series of resolutions relating to the registration of ships; navigation laws, etc., which he would like to have that gentleman read. The Secretary then read the following resolutions: MR. ROPES'S RESOLUTIONS. Hrvilvd, That in the judgment of the Boston Be aril of Trade the navigaiion laws of the United States which forbid registration under the .American flag to foreign-built vessels, pur-ciiasad and owned by American citizens, have not only failed to yield the advantage expected from them to the American ship-build-iii; class, for whose benefit they were enacted, but have also contributed to the serious decline and almost threatened extinction of the Ameiican ship-owning interests and of the ocean-carrying trade of the United States. Keuilrfd, That the immediate repeal of these laws, by giving encouragement to American citizens to become ship owners and to engage in the foreign commerce of the country, would conduce more to the permanent prosperity of the snip builders of the United states than any scheme of bounties and subsidies cr any system of monopoly could possibly do. fiemltied. That the immediate repeal of these laws would offer the best inducement which the Government could hold out toAmeriean oitizens to enter Into competition with ths citizens of other countries for a proper share of the vast steam traffic of the Atlantic Ocean, now carried on exclusively under other flags than their own. Ilettilveil, That a copy of these resolutions be addressed to every member of Congress in both Houses f roni the New Kngland States; and that Congress be memorialized by the officers of the Board in accordance with them. Kexolmi, That a copy of these resolutions be addressed to all the principal Boards of Trade and Chambers of Commerce in the United States, with a circular letter inviting them to consider and take action upon them and to memorialize Congress to abolish the prohibition referred to at the extra session to he held in October next. Mr. Ropes, in advocating the passage of his resolutions, said that he believed that however widely the members of the Board may have differed on other subjects, they have always sympathized with each other in this. The result of the navagation laws is seen in the stagnation of business and the ruined commerce of an impoverished people. We want to break np the great monopolies and we want to begin today by enlisting the sympathy of the Board of Trade. Mr. A. Nickerson opposed the resolutions and offered the following amendment. MR. MCKERSON'S AMENDMENT. Whereas, the f hip-building and ship-owning interests of the United States have passed through a period of unusual depression; and whereas, under the wise provisions of our navigation laws, by which foreign vessels have been debarred from our coastwise trade, and under further fosterinu legislation our shipping interest has not liecome extinct, but continues to be an important element in our national prosperity; Jiemlred, That the repeal ot our navigation laws by admitting foreign-built and foreign-owned vessels to the privileges of United States registration would be a serious blow to the interests of ship-builders aud shipowners. Knolrfd, That existing relations of European nations point to a possibly enhanced value of our flag, aud call for the utmost carefulness on the part of our legislators that such benefit be not lost to our country and its commercial interest. Mr. H. A. Hill supported the resolutions offered by Mr. Ropes, and said that the laws should be modified if not repealed. Mr. William Downie gave expression to some of his well-known views on the subject of free trade, and said it is a fact that in manv markets American goods are sought where French and English are rejected, and consequently now is the time to take advantage of our chances "for commercial trade. Mr. Ropes said that what was wanted was an opportunity for American ships to carry on a coastwise trade, for it is necessary to do something to keep from being crowded out by competition. He would like to induce Americans to become shipowners. Mr, Nickerson thought that the tendency of the resolutions was to defeat themselves. The Hon. J. M. S. Williams, J. E. Burtt, Esq., G. W. Bond, Esq., and others took part in the discussion which was quite long and animated. Mr. Hill finally moved that the Board adjourn one week in order that tlie subject might be more fully considered. His motion prevailed, and without taking any action ou the resolutions the meeting dissolved. From Chits. H. Colgate, Ksq., Of the firm of Colgate & Co., Manufacturers of Flavoring Extracts, 21 Blackstone St., Boston. So!nerTijjej jfas3- Dec. 0, 187G. Messrs. Seth W. Fowle & Sons: Gentlemen Last Spring my little daughter, aged five, became very much emaciated with loss of appetite, and great prostration of strength; so much so that we were obliged to take hef out of school. This continued through the summer and caused us much anxiety. After trying various remedies without deriving any benefit, aur fanuly physician recommended the use of Peruvian Syrcp. After using it one week we saw a marked improvement in the child's condition, and in a month she was rapidly gaining in health and strength, her appetite being excellent. At this date she is perfectly well, with round, plump cheeks and healthy color, and is again attending school regularly. I consider her restoration to health entirely due to the Pe-kuvias Sybcp, and feel that I cannot too highly recommend it as a tonic. Very gratef ully yours. CHA8. H. Colgate. Sold by dealers generally. Shakespearean Reading. Professor Robert R. Raymond gave his last Shakespearean reading of the year before the School of Oratory yesterday morning, at Wealeyan Hall. The play selected was "The First Part of King Henry the Fourth," which is one eminently calculated to brine out the professor's wonderful powers in the line of comedy. The interest in these readings has become so great that there will probably be a limited number of tickets issued to the public next year. Among the distinguished visitors was the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, who ad-dreaeed the school. He spoke of the very great importance of the work being done in the school, and said he spent three year of his early life in the tost thorough training in the branch of art and said it sunk so deep in him that it became a part of him, and. the value which Uu diiU was to htm was simply Incalculable. He said we ran get a' on x lv 1 ingly speaking of the work to be done, and said he nrgrai oratory as tne suoiimest art of man. THE TRIENNIAL FESTIVAL FIRST PERFORMANCE MENDELSSOHN'S "ELIJAH." The Handel and Haydn Society has bejun its fourth triennial festival with abundant eclat. Music Hall was filled to its fullest capacity, the evening was favorable, and the performance was such as to win a satisfied look, a cheerful smile and a word of hearty commendation from everybody. The toncert was announced to bejin at 7.45, and the most of the auditors were in their seats by that time. A few later comers did not reach their places before the chorus, however, and it was about eight o'clock when the word of the prophet, "As God the Lord of Israel Liveth," had told of the beginning of the oratorio. The singers were arranged as usual, the stage being surrounded by rising tiers of scats, aud the front of it conveniently lowered, so that the COO voices were easily accommodated. The first matter that claimed the attention was the special announcement, printed and circulated with the programmes, to the effect that Mr. Adams would not sing, the Pommerania, in which he had sailed from Hamburg on the 2d inst., not having reached New York until Wednesday morning, too late to allow him to get to Boston in season for the concert. Mr. William J. Winch was substituted for Adams, a choice which could but be satisfactory, since Mr. Winch had before sung the part so acceptably here. The other soloists announced were all present, Mr. Zerrflhn conducted with his usual suavity, Mr. Lang was heard from the organ, aud the orchestra was duly assembled. In selecting "Elijah" for the initial concert of the festival, the management did a wise thing. The oratorio not only was not new to the society, bu it is such a popular favorite that it could not fail to attract. Some have attempted of late to write down Mendelssohn as a composer who lacked in the bold and vigorous brilliancy, the masculine and powerful grasp of idea and the ponderously studied expression which mark (a really great author. Be that as it may, the varied phases of musical feeling which one meets in the "Elijah" are convincing proof of a mind whose fervent love of the divine art had no lack of channels for its outflowing. The man of God predicting Jehovah's decrees; the weary people lamenting the drought and famine; the expression ef Divine protection over faithful people; the monotonous and vain cries of the worshippers of Baal; the surprised joy at the descent of fire or the full outburst of thanks for refreshing rain; the varied recitations from Scripture by which the prophet speaks or is spoken of; the persecutions by the followers of Jezebel; the grand appearances of wind, earthquake and tire, and the succeeding ''still, small voice;" the several trustful passages which set forth the watchfulness of angels all these are surely enough themes of differing character, and such as to tax a writer's powers of thought, fertility of invention and ability for expression. In other words, he who can do this successfully, who can, in short, compose a dramatic oratorio, needs not a defined and graded place in the catalogue of "great" composers. So long as he has portrayed these great subjects in tilting musical colors, he has proved his best right to rank in the list of the "few, the immortal" which are destined to live in the sphere of musical remembrance. We are certain that no one thought of anything less than this last night in the enjoyment which the oratorio afforded. So far as the choral and orchestral work was concerned there is little chance for flaw-picking. The instrumentalists had been most judiciously selected and drilled, and played very smoothly throughout the evening. The chorus, having made this work one of the most familiar in their repertory, and having sung it so recently as to be in an excellent state of assurance, took iip the choral parts with a good degree of smoothness, great care, and generally vigorous spirit. The "attack" was in almost every instance unusually good, and the differ nt prts well balanced. The tenors at times wefe heard to splendid advantage, which is not saying that the other voices were not in tine trim. The "Thanks be to God" and "He, Watching Over Israel," were of all the choruses decidedly the best; perhaps because of their familiarity, but the more difficult choruses of the first and last parts were also admirably done. The soloists were Miss Kellogg, Miss Gary, Mr. W. J. Winch and Mr. Whitney. The latter should have the place of honor in this notice as in the music. It was rather unfortunate that he was not in his best voice, but he was not, and a hoarseness at some times and a too-evident effort at others marred the general effect of his singing. As far as he is concerned with the music one iieed say but little, since he has made it his solo performance at so many representations of this work. His style is tTiily noble, and his declamation fervid, while bis conception is eminently a just one. In the air "is not His Word Like a Fire?" he sang well, exceedingly well in the judgment of the auditors, but a little dryly, we thought. In " For the Mountains Shall Depart" he was heard at his best, and gave a most acceptable rendering of the massice aria. Miss Kellogg, barring a tendency to indulge in the use of the tremolo, against which we shall always protest, gave a finished and intelligent delivery of the soprano solos. The lesser parts of her work, such as the words of the widow and the youth, were exquisitely done. In "Holy, Holy" she was exceedingly good, but by far her best singing was her really noble interpretation of "Hear Ye, Israel." In everything she proved herself the careful and the accomplished artist which she really is. Miss Gary we never knew to disappoint an audience. She'sang her music in the lurge, rich and fluent style which is her own, and when she ceased, left an impression of perfect satisfaction. Among so much that was good, her "O Rest in the Lord" was certainly the best, and in some respects the best solo of the evening. Mr. Winch, having sung his part before, could have had no hesitation in taking it last night. He was thoroughly finished and expressive 111 all his Binning, and in "If, with All Yrour Hearts," and "Then Shall the Righteous Shine," displayed a generous appreciation of the merits of the solos. In the concerted music there was able assistance by Miss Sarah C. Fisher, Mrs. Jennie M. Noyes, Mr. W. H. Fessenden, Mr. J F. Winch and Mr. H. M. Aiken. The angel trio, by Misses Kellogg, F'isher and Cary, was repeated, though it was not the only time where the thing would have been done had the applause been allowed to find its full response from the stage. Today there will be two concerts. At 2.30 Mar-cello's Psalm X VIII., "The SpaciousFirmament," Saint-Saen's "Noel" and a miscellaneous selection, and at 7.45 Bach's "Christmas Oratorio," Parker's "Redemption Hymn" and Hiller's "Song of Victory," with solos. All the soloists will be introduced today, and the choral works are all new, Mr. Adams is announced to be here without fail. ! Seashore and Mountain houses are not considered complete without billiard tables, and those who are furnishing their houses should bear in mind that the well-known firm of J. E. Came & Co., at 114 Sudbury street, have a large stock of second-hand, modern style tables suitable for seashore and mountain houses, which they offer at very low prices. They also have all Vin'cls of billiard goods, and are prepared to let all their customers select from a large and varied stock of goods as they desire. Jordan, Marsh & Co. will open this morning their entire stock of black hernanis, grenadinesnd bareges in stripes, plaids, plain and Mexican meshes. This will undoubtedly be the largest and finest display of this description of goods ever made in this city, and it is hardly necessary to add that the stock will be sold at astonishingly low prices. In their upholstery department Messrs. Jordan, Marsh & Co. have nine styles of lambrequins offered at very low prices. Children's Protective Soeiety.
