It is a very common thing in
Columbus of late to 6ee a ruuaway
team, and too fast driving. We have
had complaint after complaint en
tered here, but those who do so
should remember that we are not a
court of justice, empowered to take
testimony and impose fines for the
violation of law, neither is it the
function of a newspaper to make
personal accusations in such cases.
The parties iujured should do that
before the proper authorities.

It has been suggested to us that
the papers of the city should pay a
srood deal more attention to the
markets than they have heretofore
done, especially the stock and grain
markets, but more especially the
latter. It seems that as much as
ten cents a bushel has been paid by
some of our dealers, above the price
as quoted by some of the papers.
This ought not to be. The news
papers should have enterprise
enough to keep up with the times;
tho markets are among the most
important facts that the papers can
give, and to be of value they must
be a true and accurate index of
prices for commodities exchanged
here. Certainly, the newspaper that
does not give the highest market
price actually paid for wheat, corn,
oats, hogs, cattle, bhtter, eggs, &c, is
doing no small injury to the busi
ness interests of the city, and should
cease to do so. Sel f-interest, if noth
ing else, would dictate this course,
and wo hope to see, henceforward,
all the Columbus paperB vie with
each other iu furthering the mate
rial interests of the city iu this, as
well as in all other respects.

The victim in this instance was a

We are informed that owing to
au insufficiency of bauds the county

The Diamond Field.
Saturday afternoon last the B. &
M. Club of Omaha and the Koy
stones of this city met on grounds
near Judge Higgins's residence in
thi eastern part of the city, aud en
gaged in 3 very interesting game of
base ball. Both uines were very
tastily dressed in the uniform of
their clubs, and are to be commend
ed for their neat, trim and tidy ap
pearance. Our nine are unstinted
in their praise of the gentlemanly
brethren who subdued them so
handsomely. An examination of
the score, which we give below,
showa that the seveuteen runs wee
all made on the 1st, 3d and 4th in
nings, the only run of the Keystones
being on the 1st, and three for the
B & M's. on the 3d and thirteen on
the 4th. In seven innings the B. &
M's. were whitewashed, in eight the
Keystones. Tho fourth inning was
a mountain with only one spur on
the hither side, and a precipice be
yond ; three runs were made on a
lost ball. The B. & M's. seemed to
have gotten the "twist" on Kavan
augh's balls, and kept knocking them
right along. After this inning a
change was made on the part of the
Keystones, among the most import
ant of which were Landers as pitch
er and Hudson as first-base, after
which neither side scored any. It
is duo to Mr. Kavanaugh to say that
a matter outside of the game alto
gether, occurring about this time,
attracted, not only his attention, but
that of the whole nine, diverting
them somewhat from the game.
The occasion was graced by the
presence of a large number of spec
tators, among them not a few ladies,
and enlivened by straius of excellent
music from the Columbus Cornet
We are informed that in either
two or six weeks it is expected that
the Keystones will pay the B. & M's.
a visit at their grounds in Omaha.

the Samuel Johnston. Walter A. Wood,
etc. After the most impartial of trials,
for which the English Agricultural So
cieties are always famed, the award of

worth mentioning: The machine was
on the ill-fated ISrittauic that sank oil'

fathom of water for a week or more.
The steamer was finally towed into port,
and the machine recovered, and, not
withstanding its sorry plight, it Was
