The Ports had a fairly good team in the field, several of their prominent players donning the uniform. The game although one-sided was spiritedly carried out throughout. The superior strength of the PortB proved far too great for the Kingstons, who were unsuccessful in obtaining any goals. O.

MERRTTON, Apeie 16. Seeding operations have been checked by the heavy rains, but that is of. little importance as longJw ench quantities of water are being -stored. The grass is growing splendidly, pro -mifiing.an abundance of feed at a season too when it is much wanted. Naturally the farmers are jubilant at the prospect, and a great impetus will be given to trade. Some damage has been done by the washing out of depressions in the roads, carrying away fences, and even in some cases washing away the soil from fallowed land.
