☞ HANDSOME SHIRTS.—The Victory Base Ball Club have just donned their uniform shirt. It is of Salisbury flannel, a pink and white plaid, and is decidedly the finest specimen of a cricket, base ball or boating shirt that has been seen in Troy.—Messrs. H. H. Hodgman & Co., No. 338 River street, the well-known artists of that line, are the “builders” of the shirts, and are entitled to a great deal of credit. In their new “rig,” the Victory boys will be complete, and will present a picturesque appearance on their matches.

It is with pleasure, therefore, that we give place to the report of the committee
