'' THOUGH the word " crioket" stands, as usual, at the head of my communication, your readers must be con tent to have next to none of it this week. ' Yet have I something to write about what has been, and what else is likely to be in the future. First, let me remark upon a practice that prevails too much among our cricketers, to the detriment of the game, and the destruction of grounds-I mean tho detemiination to play in wet weather, or so soon after ram that the surface of tho ground has not had time to harden sufficiently. By this suicidal arrangement the ground is cut up in one short afternoon more than it will recover from by the end of the season ; the bowling is completely spoiled, and the batsmen gain little or nothing by practising at it. I am far from designing to damp the ardour pf energetic, enthusiastic players, but if thes...

SOLUTION OF PBOBLEM, NO. 4. "WHITE. BLACK. 1. B to K 4. ILK takes B. 2. Q to K 6 (mate) | If black Kt takes fe, or Kt to Q 5, white moves Kt to Q 3 (mate), but if black takes any other move, then Kt to K B 3 (mate). Correct solutions of No. 4 problem, have also been reoeivedfrom "P.O.D.," "F.J." and "Cosmo." COSMO'S solution of problem 3 was declared incorrect because White's second move (K P takes 2) waa an impossible one. Probably it was a clerical error on his part, and hence it was described as "incorrectas written." Cosmo's hint shall have attention.
