CRICKET. QUEANBEYAN AND YASS. (From our Queanbeyan Correspondent.) THE return match between the above mentioned cricket clubs came off at Queanbeyan on Tuesday, the 23rd instant, the former winning with eight wickets to spare. The weather was very favour able for the occasion, which created a very good assemblage of people, graced with a fair show of ladies who, as usual, seemed to take a great delight in seeing the "lords of the creation" displaying their physical powers. The scene was enlivened by a German band provided for the occasion, which entered the field playing the well-known air "Cheer, boys, cheer," and kept up the music with out intermission until the end of the game. At about twelve o'clock the play was commenced, three hearty cheers being given for the Yassites. They were the first to handle the bat, and played a very spirited game, scoring 68 runs the first innings. Then followed the Queanbeyanites, who, determined to do their best, succeeded in scoring 82 runs, head- ing their opponents by 14 runs. Both parties then retired for a short time for refreshment, after which the Yass gentlemen took their second innings. Mr. Blake having the misfortune to be caught out by Mr. Davis, without adding to the score, and Mr. Hume bowled out, scoring but 9. all hopes in favour of a victory by the Yassites were at an end. Fortune seemed to frown on them, as they soon returned from their wickets with an addition of but 20 runs to the former innings, making a total of 88 runs, leaving the Queanbeyanites but 7 runs to win. I shall refrain from making any remarks on either the batting or fielding, as the reader will be able to form
an opinion at the play by the score appended. After the game was ended hearty cheers were given to the Yassites, who warmly returned the compliment. The umpires were --- for Queanbeyan, Mr. H. Gar- diner; for Yass, Mr. Cole. The scorers --- for Quean- beyan, Mr. McDonald; for Yass, Mr. Jones. YASS. FIRST INNINGS. SECOND INNINGS. J. A. Blake, run out ... 21 c. W. Davis, b. W. Davis ... 0 J.
