Seniors, let innings, 66. For the Seniors, Alford "28, and N. M"'Loan 20 batted well; the latter also distinguished himself by making two smart catches off his own bowling. On thile side of 'the Juniors, Bartold 40, Shepherdson 30, and Dawson 11 and 13, showed good cricket for their respective scores. The Seniors batted two men short, and substituted fielders, but, with the ex ception of W. Mitchelmore, they had the full bowling strength of the club, so the Juniors naturally felt very proud of being able to run up the large score of 113 in their second innings. Matches of this description should be arranged oftener, as they tend to improve the credit of the younger members of the club, and at the same time give the membors o...
