New SOUTH WALES.--Prliminary steps .With regard to the Intorcolonial cricket match, Victoria v. .New South Wales, have bebn taken thus early in the season. This year the Sydney Eleven would in due course visit Melbourne, but, according to precedent, it rests with Victoria to. initiate the affair A mooting of lirst year's committee was held yesterday afternoon, at Marshall's, Cricketers' IHotel, and the" question of.the propriety of play ing the season's match or suflering it to lapse was raised and. considered. There was a unianimous feeling expressed tluit it would be better.to postpone the contest for twelve months, not because of any ill-feel= ing arising out of last season's play, but because, withthe counter-attraction of the All-Englaid Eleven it is 'ot likely that the match would be a tinancial success. .

We are still favoured with fine weather, and every thing is looking beautiful except the wheat, which promised well till the last seven days, and now the crops are, with very few exceptions, spoilt with rust. STEAM COMMUNICATION. - Arrangements are being made, and are to be entered on at once, for weekly direct steam communication between the settlement at Terara and Sydney. &nbsp; This will be a great convenience, and I have no doubt that the directors will find it will increase the traffic considerably. The district is likely to profit by the visit of the Engineer-in-Chief, who, I understand, is projecting considerable improvements in the navigation of our noble river. There appears, however, to have been some misunderstanding about the dyke at Appletree Orchard, as to where it is to be, and the plan on which it is to be constructed.
