Sir, — Witli reference to 'Backstay's' notes in tlie Sunday Tirncs relating to the accident to the Dreamland in the 21-footer's race at the National Begatta, I write to contradict several of the state ments he makes. I was sailing the Aileeu on that occasion, and we were not astern but ahead of the Dreamland, and carrying our topsail and balloon jib, wlien the acci dent occurred, -and therefore I could noc without looking behind (which I liadnot time to do), ana ns a matter 01 met uiu 1101 see Mr. Doran fall overboard, and did not know that anyone had fallen over until wo had run sonie distance on, when, seeing that the Carlotta would reach liim long before we could, she being not far astern ; and expecting (reasonably I think) .that the Dreamland, which must have been close by, would put about and render some assistance, -.ve decided to go on. From what I was'told by some of my crew at the time, and seeing ...

ATHLETICS. (By 'Nimblefoot.') NOTES ON THB HUTCHENS MALQNE MATCH. Tlie weather was cool ami a breeze was blowing across tho track on the Saturday they ran tho first distune.-. Both Malono and Hutchens ran in their buff, simply using a singlet aud trunk, and both had the appearance of men fit and determined to run a great race. Malone wns finer than I have ever seen him, and no mistake looked beautiful as he took a preliminary uu\vu cue track, cheereu Mil both sides. Ho smiled and looked confident, little dream ing he would be asked in the contest to beat 7 yards inside even, for here are his own words after the race: 'I knew I could do an honest 0 yards inside oven, and I thought that, would beat anybody.' Hutchens quietly, without noticing anyone, took a canter down the track, but never theless looked anxious. He is a powerfully made man, but at n distance is disappoint ing in appearance.

NAVAL AND MILITARY. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 February 1887

NIVAL AND MILITARY. The services of the Permanent Artillery Band were engaged for the International Cricket Match, commenced on the Associa tion Cricket Ground, on Friday last, but under the now arrangements the band only plays one day instead of right through the match. Saturday was tho day chosen for this match. Punctually at 2 o'clock the band had assembled on the lawn, but no music was had from them till nearly 3 o'clock, . owing, we believe, to . tlie HOn avrival of Sergeant Devery. As be tween 1.30 and 2.30 p.m. is the usual lunch hour, the gap could have been woll filled by some sweet music from the band, but for somo reason or other it was not considered iidvisablo to play while tho men Were out of the field, _ Sergeant Davevy must certainly be oblivious to the fact that during this rather monotonous hour to tlio onlookers, the services of the band would be highly acceptable. How ever, the music discoursed was excellent, and 'called forth no small amount pf applause,- but th...

RILEY CUP. Oriental v. Newtown. It seems somewhat strange that after this gamo being given in favour of the Orientals it should bo plttj*e& out. However, although the Ories' were certainly entitled to claim tho match, they won it very easily by eight wickets. The Newtowns, who had lost four wickets for 11 runs in the second innings, increased this score to | 41 before they wero all disposed of. The very lueavrre score was due to the splendid bowling of i Doniian and Frascr, who captured five wickets for | 21, and four for It runs respectively. This left rne uneutais runs to get to score a win, wJucJi They accomplished with the loss of two wickets. Fred Luland again played a fiue iuuings for 30, not out.
