Excitement, however, is not quite the correct word, for with tho exception of one short interval for afternoon tea there is little of an .exciting nature about a cricket match.

The intercolonial match was played in -nnpropitions weather and with the exception of -the first day the beau monde did not. turn out At the Rusheutters Oval, however, there was a very fashionable gathering when the Australian and Union clubs played. We had six young ladies .fresh from the old country to give us 'tone.'' They were very smartly dressed, but although there was nothing actually new in the s...

Mr. Richard Proctor, tho well-known Christian Socialist, occupied tho chair, and introduced the lecturer. He also intimated that in the course of a few weeks he hoped to have the pleasure of addressing larger audiences when he appeared as a candidate for Parliamentary honors at tho general election. Mr. Hill was well received, and frequently applauded throughout tho deliveiy of an interesting address in which he attempted to show the present cause of distress amongst the working classes, and how their condition could be ameliorated. Tho lecture was illustrated by a number of coloured diagrams based on Mr. Coghlan's statistics of the colony, and were meant to show in a simple way the unequal distribution of wealth and the one-sided manner in which the land was divided amongst the people. The burden of the lecture w...

A Story of Dan 0'Connell. Many a story he told me of his famous brother Dan ; amongst them the fol'owing, which shows how unscrupulous O'Connell could be when ha thought occasion required it. He had brought his brother either to the bar of (he House or behind the woolsack — I forgot which— to hear a debate on Irish affairs in the House of Lords. A discussion arose on some petition which had been presented frt fVia nann.-. *-'U „ ? ? ? ? 1 ? . m _ pvcio, uuo cuucdu 01 wnicu a Tory peer had said, ' What are wo to think, my lords, of such a petition as this, the first signature to which is that of Hamilton Rowan, an attained traitor ?' Lord Brougham, seeing O'Connell, came down to him and said, ' What am I to say to this ?' ' You may say,' said Dan, ' that Mr. Hamilton Rowan never was an attainted traitor. Ifc is true that in 98 he left Ireland for a little time; but on his return no charge was brought against him. He now holds a high position, is a magistrate in his county, and has tw...

Stories of Sheridan. The revival on the stage of 'Tho School for Scandal' has caused the name of its author to bs once more in tho mouths of men. Perhaps the n»03t curious account of him, and in some respects the most intimate, is to be found in a little volume privately printed by William Smyth, the tutor o£ his son. Never did impecuniosity and reckl-issnoa3 combine together to ruin a man as in Sheridan's case. What can 1 do, or anyone else, for such a master ?' complained his confidential servant Edwards. 'The other morning I went to settle his room after he had left it and gone out : and' when I came to open the windows found them stuffed up with papers of different kind3, and among them bank ri^Ites.
