MATCHES OF THE WEEK. RICEMOND v. EAST MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 19 November 1864

MATCHES OF THE WEEK. EICEMOND T. EAST MELBOCRXE. If any one had ventured to assert at the commencement of this match that it would be finished in one afternoon, they would have been laughed at. Yet such was the fact. Not commenced until some ten or fifteen minutes past two, it was found practicable to play three innings and sufficient of a fourth to settle who were the winners before the shades of ercning bad rendered play impossible. This of course implies that the batsmeu were unequal to the defence of their wickets from the assaults of the bowlers, and with few exceptions, such was the case, That such a team as Bichmond sent into the field, including, as it did, five of our best professionals, should hare been beaten by an Eleven composed entirely of amateurs, is " strangebut that it should have knocked under so easily is "passing strange." The only plsyer who made anything like a stand was Hewitt, who got 12 and 20—his Utter score being within one of half the total got by his si...

LOST IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 19 November 1864

LOST IN THE BUSH. Sir,—I have just perused your Issue of the loth.; therein 1 find my old friend, Mr. Gideon S. Lang, has been exercising his naturally active mind in giving directions to people who may be unfortunate enough to get lost in the bush. I quite approve of his remarks and suggestions, but must admit, I think, wher people really believe themselves tost, the state of mind most are placed in would quite incapacitate them from following them ont; some, of course, are not so easily discomforted, and to those Mr. Lang's kind ness will be of much value. I will now (being an old bushinao, and one who is always glad to find another that will devote an hour to the well-being of a fellow colonist, endeavour to lend a hand), venture a few wholesome hints, which may privtnl many from getting lost. In the first piece, I would suggest tbat those who ere not bnihmen should never at tempt exploring; the probability i», any journey they msy require to take will bo on some beaten track; if...

CORRESPONDENCE. GRASSES FOR LAWNS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE AUSTRALASIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 19 November 1864

CORRESPONDENCE. GRASSES FOR LAWNS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE AUflTRAIiUIAN. Sir,—In your last week's issue, one of your correspondents, " V. C.," requested to be informed of the most desirable -grasses in every respect for a lawn—as being able to withstand our semi-tropical heat, maintain a green colour for a lengthened period, form a good "bottom," and be pleasant for a romp or a game of bowls. Almost every grass succeeds best upon some particular soil. The most suitable and profitable for strong rich lands are doubtless the clovers; perennial rye-gram, hard and meadow fescue, soft grass, fox-crcsted dog's tail, and many others, will thrive upon poorer soils; whilst the rib grass (useless, except for sheep) will accommodate itself to tbe most hungry land. As your correspondent's ground was origi nally intended for a fruit and flower garden, it may reasonably be suppneed that tbe character of the soil is at least of an average qoality, but until be mentions the district in which his inte...

IRRIGATION OF FLOWER BEDS. I (FBOU TH3 GlBDElfEBs' CIIBONICIE.) The present season will long be remembered by tlicee who are interested in the cultivation or the soil, and especially by those who have the core and responsibility of largo gardens i resting upon them, in consequence of its exces sive dry ness, and the incessant labour which has been consequently entailed in dispensing j water with the necessary liberality to the flower beds, borders, ic. The practical atna-1 teurs and all lorers of flowers, and, indeed, horticulturists generally, will have data of their own, based upon some difficulty, dis appointment, or want of success, to bring to their recollection the dry season of 18611 and it may be that each individual will economize to the best of his ability, and will husband the Tteouioes at his command in the shape of water and of labour in applying it, in order to produce the best effect according to hie Do doubt the thoughts of some ingenious minds may bring to recollect...

YEOMAN MISCELLANY. Ahte sut? Welis ck the Deseet.—Modern science is literally making " ibe desert to blossom as the rose." In the great desert of Sahara, in I860, fire artesian wells had been opened, around vrhich vegetation thrives luxu riantly ; thirty thousand palm trees and one thousand fruit trees were planted, and two thriving villages established. At the depth of a little over fire hundred feet, an underground ' rircr or lake was struck, and from two wells lire fish hare been thrown up, showing that there is a large body of water underneath.— Scientific American, Cow's Mile.—Dr. Vercheyen, of the Slate Veterinary School in Belgium, lias been ex perimenting with reference to the effects of extirpating the horns of cows whilst young. The results of the experiments made in cows of the same age, breed, and under the same conditions, some of which hare been thus operated upon and some not, are very curious.

THE CREAM OF ENGLISH CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 19 November 1864

THE CREAM OF ENGLISH CRICKET. When the September mail left England the cviiket scuson was rupidlj drawing to a close. There were still a few fixtures left on the card of eoine note, but their chance of being carried out dcjiended much on the weather, which is not usually very favourable to outdoor sports af the end of September and beginning of Octo ber. During the five weeks covered by our recently received filc6, the favourite game has been pursued with unabated ardour, and the number of matches recorded allows thut the season was not expiring of inanition. But although ihere has been much cricket, only a comparatively small portion thereof has been of a first-class nature. The matches between the leading clubs usually end with August, the 1st of Soptimbcr having attractions for most of their leading members which cannot be resisted ; and the prolongation of the season is mainly due to the natural desire of the profes sional Elevet\6 to " make hay while the sun shines."
