Cricket. 2nd fflusv/ellbrook v. Wybong. A rather weak team wont out to Wybong on Saturday last, to play the return match in the Pitz-Gorald trophy competition with the cricketers of that salubrious locality. A rather late start was made but tbis was nottho fault of the genial George Morey, who was kept waiting for some time by the laggards. The drive was uneventful, if we except the pedestrians exercise up the steepest hills. The road was found in fair order, though in places the late heavy rain had left it in need of attention. At one spot, about, a mile from where the road turns off, there is a dead tree hanging: in a very dangerous way across the road, which it would be well to remove to prevent au accident being caused by its fall. It was more than half-past eleven o'clock when we arrived on the cricket ground, whore the Wybong players were already assembled, and after settling the usual preliminaries a start was made with the match about 12 o'clock. The cricket ground is situat...
