CRICKET. SKETCHES BY PRYING PETER. " Crudo they are I grant you, A sort of unlicked, incondito things." OCIAs. LAMx. It is heartily amusing to hear the various -and from their variety-absurd rumours that are spread abroad by the supporters of our Victorian champions, purporting to be the reasons that account for the shameful defeat that our cricketers have received at the hands of the Now South Welshmen. i It must be patent to everyone that, much as we may marvel at the disparity of the scoring in the first and second innings of Victoria, the New South Welshmen had a far superior team, and hence the defeat of the former. In fact, such small respect have I got for the Victorian team that pitted themselves against the Welshmen, that I verily believe a team of fifteen or eighteen carefully and impartially selected from the clubs competing for the Colling. wood Challenge Cup would, in cricket parlance, make it warm for them, without daring to suggest that they might even' score a win ag...
