Rowley, of Duke's Springs, for £10 a side, came off on Monday last, on the cricket ground near the Police 'Barracks. There were a large number of specta tors present, and by noon, the hour at winch the game was to have oommenoed, we do not think there could have less than from 100 to 150 persons nresent. Whether tins was.' due to. the interest felt in the watch, and whioh oertainly seemed as though it was a trial of , stul'und strength between the knignts of the willow of Cooma and the Showy Uiver, or whether it was due to the land sale held ' oil the same day and the near anproacb pf ,tlie ,. annual race meeting, we cannot esy ; but if an opinion could be formed from the remarks made on the ground and the 'excitement visible amongst,, the spectators, we should attribute the large attend-, ; , ; anceto the interest taken in tlie game itself). .., . .

The weather was aearcely such as could have been desired on St. Patrick's Bay. During Tues day there were-certainty some 'indications of rain,; t-ut up to a late Hour on Tuesday night it was not ?considered thst the weather would be unfavorable. On Wednesday morning at, an early hour there ?was, however, a drizzling rain — what is commonly termed a ' Scotch mist' — aocompanied by a sharp, piercing cold wind.

It ws one of the principal arguments against the existence -?of scbd inspectors mat trim was no scab Ipft in the country to inspect.

Chirnside, 'near Streathaur: —The overseer -of the station alluded to had a shepherd called Simpson in the employ ment for yean past, who ifw -understood by his employers and fellow servants 'to be the son of an English gentleman-; this statement was partly borne out by the fact that be was in the habit of regularly receiving a kind of annuity amounting to £100 from his friends at home. ff bis generally arrived in half-yearly instalments, and it -usually occurred that so long as the money lasted, a carouse, or what is better understood as a *? jolly spree,' was kept up by the recipient and the favoured of his fellow servants.
