MATCHES FOR TO-DAY. ! Not satisfied with tho sport of laßt Saturday, Mr. Davis has once moro issued his cartel. He fears that as he and his son won and divided the prizes in both matcl'ies, some of his friends, after having provided the apple sauce for last Sunday's dinner, may have boen disappointed of the roast pork; and so he .has invited them again to Petersham to once more try theil' luck for the fat pigs and turkeys, in a handicap sweopstakes, wherein ho pro poses, himself to shoot at about forty yards. He is under the impression that " Sussex " has acted not exactly as ho ought to have dono, in keeping the spoil after inviting his friends out all tho way to Petersham, and that ho should bo made to disgorge ; I and now ho asks his friends to collect once moro in j his paddock, which, I believe, they will do this afternoon with great glee at 2 o'clock.

THE INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. To tho Editor of the Town and Country Journal. Sir,-Pormit mo through, your columns to suggest that the Selection Committee should at once ch oso our Eloven.

These gentlemen are Government officials, and I know thoro will bo necessarily some delay in obtaining the required leavo of absence. If application for le ave bo left till after the final selection, it may then be too late, and wo may thereby lose tho assistance of theso and other fino players. It would Buit the wishes of some that such an occurrence u ... ? ;! should take pluce, for I am aware there are those who would if possible force themselves into tho team although they wore convinced that another defeat to New South Wales would be tho consequence. The Selection Committee will pardon...
