Billiard Tournament.

--The Billiard Tournament continues to excite great interest, and the room of Mr. Lynch, in Fourteenth street, where it is held, is daily crowded to its utmost capacity by gentlemen who feel an interest in the game. The games yesterday were first between Messrs. Kavanagh and White.--Mr. White was beaten by 132 points, the highest run in the game being 53, which was made by Mr. Kavanagh, who is a cool and graceful player. The second game, between Messrs. Tieman and Lynch, was one of the closest and best con of any thus far played. Mr. Lynch led off in some splendid runs, ranging from 74 to 16, but towards the close of the game his hasty but good-- natured antagonist was shined up, and when the game was even within a single point, made a splendid run of 85, and was proclaimed the victor. On Wednesday Messrs. Kavanagh and Tieman will play, and as the prize cue undoubtedly lies between them, much interest is felt as to the result,--On Thursday Mr. Phelan will play a game of 500 points with the winner.-- N. Y. Letter.
