PREPARATIONS FOR THE SEASON BY THE M.C.C. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 1 October 1864

PREPARATIONS FOR THE SEASON BY THE M.C.C. The Melbourne Club opens the campaign for the season 18C4-'65 to-day, with a match between ile Firet Eleven v. the next Twenty* two. It is to be feared that the heavy rains which have fallen during the week will render good play impossible, even if the afternoon itself be fine. Last Saturday a meeting of those members from whom the First Eleven is usually chosen, was held in the pavilion for the purpose of electing a captain. Hitherto the players in each match nave chosen their own captain, but, following the practice adopted by flic leading clubs ana public schools in England, it has been determined to have a permanent captain. As, however, the experiment is a new one here, it was con* Bidered advisable to make the firet appoint* ment for a month only. Mr. R. W. Wardill had the honour of being elected for the first month. The captain will not only take the command in the field during the matches, but will regulate the arrangements on practi...

PROLOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 1 October 1864

Tbe birth of The Australasian and the commencement of the Victorian Cricket Season of 1864-'65 take place simultaneously. The lime is appropriate for making a few general observations, as next week we must buckle on our critical armour, and begin in earnest the business of the season. In pitching our wickets in these columns, we are but removing them from a compara tively small to what will doubtless prove a far more extended sphere of action. Phcenix-like, The Australasian has risen out of the ashes of the late yeomen, and while it will afford greater facilities than did its predecessor for a record of cricketing events, and command a much larger circle of readers, it will pursue a similar lihe of criticism to that which we have reason to believe met with considerable favour in tbe latter journal. It will be our study to give faithful reports of all matches of any im portance, and as complete a record as possible of those of lesser magnitude. We are bound to no party, and can there...

Ballarat, though it hit long been lighted with gas and has long been pos sessed of many other public conveniences end Injuries, has hitherto been deficient in one respect; it has uot had a first class water supply. This want, however, is to be no longer felt The extensive works which have been in progress for two or three years past have now been completed, sued in a few weeks the town will reap the benefit of them. The works are well worth visiting, and, consequently, well worth describing, more especially as so huge s number of our {enow-colonists are directly inte rested in them. BaUarst was originally supplied with water from the shallow reedy basin known aa Wendouree Swamp, which lies immediately outside the town. In the first instance the fluid was brought down to stand-pipes, bnt afterwards it wia convoyed to the houses in the leading thoroughfares.

€$t Holuttferr ^Hatremttrt. ODE DEFENCES. No. L Few subjects have been more fully die eueaed by the public than that of " our defences.' As regularly as a war panic occurs in the mother country do sections of our citizens rouse themselves to a contemplation of their dangerous situa tion, whereupon they are seized with a mighty cacoelffet tcribendi, and develop eager aspirations for the erection of forts and the destruction of navies. We ques tion, however, even now, after all that j has gone, if the question is thoroughly understood: for the result of so many schemes, some sensible and some foolish, being put forward, has been to create no little confusion of ideas. Of all classes, it is most desirable that the volunteers should be "familiarly acquainted with the real position of affairs; for whatever scheme of defence may be adopted, it must be worked by them, and success will de pend not so much on their animal strength as their intelligent knowledge.
