Well, the National League actually started in 1876 not 1885, but I will give you both. In 1876 Ross Barnes of the Chicago WhiteStockings batted .429 and in 1885, Roger Connor of the New York Giants batted .371.

Dan Brouthers led the National League in doubles in 1886, 1887, and 1888 with 40, 36, and 33, respectively. The first player to do it in the 20th century was Honus Wagner, who led the league 4 times in a row from 1906-1909.
