Another noted chess player.

--Francis Henry Elder, of Detroit, has recently been creating considerable sensation among the chess clubs and chess amateurs of Yankeeland. He has played with the best Eastern players, and been uniformly successful. At Boston he played twenty five games in all, with the most noted chess-players of that city, and won twenty out of the twenty-five.--He also played eight games simultaneously, blind folded, and won half of them. At New York he played twenty games, winning eighteen of the number — beating those players who formerly contested with Murphy and Paulsen. Thus far, Mr. Elder has shown himself the best player in the United States, although he is but twenty two years of age.
