This gentleman wu born In the very remote village of Eliza bethtown, N. J., in April, 1886, and put on the burnt cork for the first time in 1819, with a oompany numbering four "indl- vlda," and took a short tour through New England, visiting many of the principal towns and dues, In 1860 he visited Phils- dslphla for the first time, and in company with Johnson, the oomlo singer, and Ohu. Jenkins, an old Ethiopian performer, appeared at what wu then called Winter Garden, located at 101 Chestnut street. He remained here about eighteen months, after which he Joined a party at Patterson, N. J„ calling them- selves the "IMsplans," and went on a short travelling tour with them. LvlBt3 he made hla first appearance in New York at Hope OnapeL with W. Donaldson's " Bthlops," Leaving her* after a abort reign be beoame one of Charley White's school-boys, and remained with him off and on for about two years. From Char- ley White's he bent his steps to the Dan Bryant and Ben Malloty party, travelling all through the Eastern country and bringing ■p anally in Philadelphia, where Jerry and Nell Bryant came into the oompany and Mallory atepped out The party refa-jced their steps down But, visiting Boston and the email towns east His next trip wu with the Baynor and Pleroe party, whom h* joined in 1867, and travelled through Western and Sonth-West- «rn towns and cities. Be turning to New York, he became a member of Wood and Christy's Minstrels, then playing at 444 Broadway. He remained here some time, and beoame a great favorite u a ballad singer. On the 11th of July, 1867, he sailed for Europe, u one of the prtnolpal members of the Baynor- Flaroe-Ohrlity party. They opened In St James' Theatre, London, meeting with great ancoess; thence to the Sonsy Theatre. Mr. Wambold remained with this company thirteen months, visiting all the towns in the Provinces. In 1869, hs returned to the States and Immediately Joined the Bryant Brothers, where, in a very short time, he beoame a great favorite. He remained with the Bryants only three months, when he took * short rest, and then we neat find him at Wood's Marble Hall; but only for a brief period, u he returned to his old love, the Bryants, oontlnumg there eight month*, when the veritable Lloyd, of high salary renown, burst forth upon the Minstrel world, and by promising everything and folfiulng nothing, he lnduoed Mr. Wambold, u he did many other*, to give up a sure thing for what afterward* proved to be a dead beat Wambold soon left this crowd and returned to Europe In 1861, and joined Brown and Templeton's African Minstrels, then travelling over the Continent He remained with them nine months, when he rejoined the old Christy party, and wu with them fifteen months. After which, in oompany with hla wife, he took a trip over the Continent on a pleas tire tourplaiting Franoe, Belgium, Frueala, Austria, Hungary, Italy, returning home through Tyrol, Bavaria, Baden Baden, to Struburg, returning to this oountry In July, 18SS, and u soon u arrived wu seoured by Mr, Henry Wood, for his troupe, where he hu remained ever since u a valuable acquisition to this already popular company. Mr. Wambold, aa a tenor linger will take rank with any in the Mm* atrel profession, and by many la considered the beet ballad singer at present In the profession. His "Blue Eyed Nelly" and "Brother's Fainting at the Door" are executed by him in a manner alone smnclent to stamp him a great linger. BALL PLAY. THE BALL PLAYEB'S CONVENTION OP 1863.

In whloh Messrs. Gorans.) Kelly, Page, and Judge Van Oott took promlneht part': On putting the ques- tion to vote, It wu decided in the negative by a vote of 36 to 23. Itwu a noteworthy fact that all, or nearly all, of those op- posed to It belong to the mumo fraternity, whose fun the fly game would put a stop to altogether. The oommlttee, in their report, heartily recommended the system of boo ring detailed in Beadle's Dime Book of Base Ball, edited by H. Ohadwlok, to the attention of scorer*, u by It the facilities for arriving at oorreot date In making np the averages at the olose of the seAson would be greatly lnoreued. A vote of thanks to the committee was unanlmoualy adopted, for the able manner In whloh they had dlaoharged their onerous dune*. : The election of officers of the Association wu then proceeded with, the following gentlemen being duly ohosen to take charge of the affair* of the National AaaoalaUon for the ensuing year: — President, J. B. Dawson, of the Newark Olub; First Vloe Presl- dent F. Pldgeon, of the Bokford) Second Vloe President, A, J. Duplgnao, of the Gotham; Beo. Secretary, J, Boss Postley, of the Jefferson, (address, 183 Nassau street New York;) Cor, Bearer tsry, J. Beaver Page, of the Active; Treasurer, P. J. Oozana, of the Eagle; all of whom, with the exception of Means. Oosans and Duplgnao, were unanimously eleoted. In the cases of the above, Mr. Miller, of the Newburg Olub, received 18 vote* for Second Vice President, and Mr. Brown, of the Metropolitan, 10 for Treasurer. The following olub* being in arrears over two yean, and no effort* being made on their behalf to reinstate them, were erased from the roll of membership. Most of them have oeaiedto exist, the majority being merged into other organizations:— Putnam, Exercise, and Powhattan of Brooklyn; Social and Alpine of New York; Liberty of New Brunswick; Adrlatlo of Newark; Equity, Wtaona, Benedict United and Olymplo of Phil- adelphia; Quickstep of Bergen, N. J. The New BoohsHe Olub, Baltio of Belleville, Continental of Jersey City, the Eacleweod Club, Union of Elizabeth, Bowdoln of Boston, Bxoelslor of Baltimore, and Flory, City of Boohester. The Baltio, Charter Oak, Continental, Harlem, Independent, Knickerbocker,Union of Brooklyn, and Victory of Troy, all of whloh were represented at the lut oonventlon, failed to *end delegate* this time. Unless they are represented next year, they will oeau to be' member* of the Association, and therefore not eligible to play in matches with olubs that are. In addition to the above, the Jefferson and Metropolitan olub* have not played in matones for a year or two put neither hu the sTamfftnn of Brooklyn. Whether ihey are in existence or not we cannot say. The following gentlemen were appointed to acton the several committee, viz:— On Nominations—Dr. Bell, O. E. Thorcu, and W. H, Murtha. OnBulsa and Begnlattons—Dr. Jones, P. O'Brien, F. Fldgton, W. A. OauldweD, H. Ohadwlok, B. Burns, A. Sogers, J. B. Psg*, and 0.0. Walden. J udiciar y—Judge Van Oott, Dr. Ball, D. tnntfc.n, T. Miller, B. H. Brown. On Printing—P. J. Oosans, E. B. Wilbur. J. Bou Postley. The usual vote of thank* to the retiring officers wu psssed, and on motion fifty dollar* wis allowed for the publication of five hundred copies of the nues and regulations. Great com- plaint wu made In referanoe to the non-reoelpt of the book* due eaoh olub. The Beoordlng Secretary, in explanation of this mat- ter, stated that it wu owing to the non-receipt of the addresses of the various Secretaries of the club*. Those club* not receiv- ing th( ir book* after having aent their addresses to the Secreta- ry, will obtain redress by writing to the Treasurer on the subject, whose address la, P. J. Oozans, 108 Nassau street The sum of fifty dollar* wu awarded u compensation to the recording secretary for his services during the year. On motion the convention then adjourned to meet again the second Wed. needsy in Deoember, 18S4, at the ume place. Section 6 of the rules wu altered so u to read u follow a:— The pitcher's position shall be designated by two lines, four yards In length, drawn at right angles to a line from home to second bus, having their oan tree upon that line upon two fixed iron plates, at points respectively fifteen and sixteen yard* from home base. The pitcher must deliver the ball u near u possible over the centre of the home base and for the striker. Should a pltoher repeatedly fan to deliver fair balls to the striker, for the apparent purpose of delaying the game, or for any oause, the Umpire, af- ter warning him, shall call ensbaD, and If the pltoher per- sists In such action, two-and three balls; and when three balls have been called the atriker shall be entitled to his Hist base; and should any bue be occupied at that time, eaoh player occu- pying them shall bs entitled to one base. Section 6 was amended so u to insert the words, "nor off the ground" Immediately preceding the words, "at the time of de Bvering the ball" \ ■ Section 16 wu also amended by so wording the rule u to allow s player the privilege of trying to make his base after returning to the bue he left, In oases of a fly oatch. SeoUon 19 wu ohanged by substituting the word "touoh" for "make," thus requiring players to touch every base; and If he fails to do it he must be declared out by the Umpire. t^etlS ^n»& ttl " rising B^ .
