CRICKET. AS we stated in our last issue,' the proposed match, Grenfell v. Forbes, had fallen through from some unexplained cause. Since then we hear that it was a prosontiniont of tlie bad state of tho intervening roiul that caused the Forbes men to enter themselves ' absent but wo cannot, refrain from noticing tlie want of courtesy displayed towards the Gren fellites by their rivals in the cricket field. Our men had spared no pains or expense to' ensure their visitors a hearty welcome, and were all in readiness on tho previous afternoon to greet thorn upon arrival, When intelligence was received from a private sourco to the effect tliat tlie Forbes cricketers had not started, nor did they intend to start.

WATER SUPPLY. . The subject of water supply is one of great interest and importance, and though in this colony the matter has invariably been shirked by; those whose province it was to deal with it, the time is fast approaching when the difficulty must be faced and overcome. While the inhabitants of Sydney are agitating with the view of obtaining a continuous and permanent supply for the cityr to effect „wbich works probably costing a. iiitm'ou~or~uioney' \viir naVuto~u3 undertuken ; while the (at present) monstrous proposition of a railway to Illawarra is largely entertained and encouraged, showing that coffers of the country are overflowing, and that the Government have more money at their command than tlioy know what to do with ; now is the timo for the people of this town and neighbourhood to bestir themselves with the view of. getting a grant of money for the con struction of a permanent watershed.

A TERRIBLE AFFLICTION. Mr. Fisher's wife was very ill in July, and there were serious fears that she would die. And one day when he came home they communicated to him the sad intelligence that she was no more.

'It's no use,' he said; ' I'll never get over it. There nover ' was a women like her, and there never will be again. I don't want to live without her. Now she's gone I'm ready to go any time.

Who has not been a witness of tho annoyance of some pretty voting girl, only just come out, on being addressed by some stupid old family friond br the nursery nickname, whereof she naturally abhors the very sound.

Barcely,' may amuse, and1 more especially all lovers of the ' King Instrument.' Paganini was engaged to give a series of concerts in London. His success was wonderful.
