The above clubs met for a friendly game of cricket at Violet Town on Satur day last, with the result that Badda ginnie was beaten by an innings and 100 runs, a most crushing defeat. . The batting of Davis and Drewett was splendid --, their itting being clean and well timed. The bowling of Neil Davis, and Grogan for the home. teamu was very destructive, whilst for the visitors Fenton's average was the best. From the dissatisfied mainner in which the Badvdaginnic man worked, it was very very evident that the men considered a change in the bowling was very desirable two bowlers in the visiting tmun not hav ing been tried.- Subjoined are scores " VIOLET Towe1.

Ever sweet thy smiling cheer, - That coimes in golden wreathes to Ime. Wheni-my darling-thou art near. THILIP D. LORIMER. Sydney, Feb. l(th, 1885. -
