I NEWTOWN V NnvpiCTTf
IT will ba remembered by those interested in Cricketing matters that on the 9th of November last n teem of thn
Newtown Club went to Newcastle to play a match, and beat their opponents by eight wickets. Satisfaction for the defeat was ottered yesterday, when a strong eleven, from Newcastle were sent here to play a return match. The wickets were pitched on tho Newtown Cricket Giound, nud as the weather was fine and agreeable, a considerable number of persons as <embled to witness the play, \> hieb, throughout was creditable to both sides. The New- castle men went first to the w'ekets at about 10 o'clock, and Tindall-one of the best trundleis of the New- town Club-and Fleming were picked to bowl them. The first wicket foil for 20 run', and of these Webb was successful enough to win 8. Glennie then went in, and with Gilbert increased tho score to 32, when tho Utter was unfortunately run out af terputting together 19 runs. Tho only other man who got double figures was Hewitt, who got 10, and the first innings of the Newcastle men terminated with 53 runs. The Ne ¡v towners then took possession of the willow, with Tiaiey and Hewitt against them as bowlers. The first three Wickets fell for 8 runs, Tindall'e being one of them for nono, and (he 8 being scored by Gilbert and Flomiug. M'Kern then went in and with Bullen increased tho score to 3d, when Bullen unfortuna'ely got out with C runs, having been in about an hour. An adjournment was then made for lunch, excellently provided at the Oxford Hotel. After all had done justice to the good things there, when they again went to the wickets Scanlon and M'Kern got together and the runs were quiokly put together, as before they senarated, tho scare stood at 71, M'Kern losing his wicket to Hewitt for 19. Webster then went in and played slow for 14, and tho innings were ter- minated for 78 runs, leaving the Newcastle men 20 behind. Soanlun in this innings camel out his bat hiving through- out played in his usual go 3d style. The Newcastle team nothing daunted went to the wicke's, but commenced their second round of play rather unfortunately, as the four first wickets went spinning for only 12 runs. None of them m ada any sort of stand until Hewitt got in tow with Glennie and putfrtgether in firar-olaea style 19 runs by some very fres hitting. Glennie was clean bowled for six, and the score stuod six out for 33. Bewick was the only other Newcastle man in the inwngs who put together dual figures, and the scoring resulted in exactly the samo number as that of the first inning«, 58, ¡.and leaving the Newtown men 39 to win. Upon the Newtown men resuming business Scanltn the " not out " man of the previous iunioga and Walter were couplel together, but the latter lost his slumps for two, and the board Bhow ng om out for 6. Crane then became Scanlon's chnm for a short time only, as the latter shortly after was caught by Glennie off Tracey. Two out for 7. Uilbart, who followed, was csughtby PearSoa off Tracey for 4, Crane in the mem while scoring slowly. Three out for 15. M'Kern, the next man, obta ned 3, and was caught by Glennie off Tracy. Four out for l8. Tindall then went in, and some of his lu k seemed to have returned to him, as he quiokly put together li runs in good style, but he was eventually bowled by Glennie, and left the score at 37, thus leaving his pals to
jCet two to .win. Fleming K<& W9 of. these, and Cranelrwhoj.
was not out for 13, too other, and thus Nowtown was lore victorious with five trictets to spare.

MANLY BEACH.-Despite the crushing and delays in- evitable on euch occasions, the crowding of visitors to this favourite holiday roBort yesterday was no exception to the penorol rule, and steamers may have been seen throughout the day nlying to and fro with sightseers eager to inhalo the sea breeze, and to pi mt their foot on the unrivalled ocean beach. The various hitelkeapers and others had done their lest to attract people to the spot, by providing athletic amusements of vaii iu« kinds, such asBwimming matches, ¡roos3 and du;k chis°s, football, swings, quoits, cricket, and the inevitable pavilion dancing. Some of these games were competitive, and money prizes wera offered to tho surcssful contestants. Thoug h sandy and but little elovntoi above the sea level, and withal hot unless favoured with a north-east brcazo, Manly Beach still seems to main- tain its old reputation as a healthful retreat for perejns who havo boen iaded with town life.
WATSOX'S SAY.-Elevated anl airy, with a bright vi»w of the surrounding scenery, though somewhat exposed to tho weather and the sun's rays, this quiet watering-place competed yest-rday with Manly Beach, with no small 6uc» ceis, for a eharo of holiday.acokerí. The excursionists rambled about the rocks, viewed the oeean fiom tho renowned Gap, and grouped themselves in nice little parties
wherever a shady treo or a sandstone ledgo offered pro
t.cfiun from the solar heat.
CI-ON'TARF.-This secluded spot, shut out so completely from the busy world, was yesterday selects by a hrgo crowd of people from among the many other localities offored to their choioo ns a Gt place in which to spend a few hours in holiday oujoyment. For this purpo-e there was no lack of amu»ement3 provided, which were carried out in s spirited manner, on the level ground olose to the beach. Thero wcro competitive games, for which money prizes were distributed, and laughter-provoking chases after a duck, goose, and pig. Nrg-o minstrelsy, dances, and a brais band Wc-re added to the other elements of attraction.
WESLBYAN SAMIATU-SCHOOI, EXCURSION.-Among tho many pleasant siehts on tho harbour yesterday, none excollod the gathering of the children attending the Wil lism-»treet Weiloynn Sabbath-school, who, by the kind permission of Mr». Wentworth, spent theil cUrr a t Vaucluse. Here, undor the superintondanca o£ lue teachers u«^ «Ko parents, the little folk pptnt several hours in the hearty enjoyment of amusements which had b>en movided for them. The minister of the church (the Rev.Tlr. Gard- ner), the Rev. Mr. Nolan, the superintendent of the school (Mr. Wearne), and Mr. Swyny, the secretiry, wore indefatigable in their exertions during tho day. The who'e of the party returned to their homes early in the evening, and although one steamer went aground, the picnic was a decided success.
CREMORNE.-Being near the city, and easily reached from the Circular Quay, thÍ3 picturesque wooded locality has over been a favourite with the citizens during their holidays, and yeitordiy showed how eagerly people crossed tho water from the dusty streets in order to taste, for a few hours, tho quiet coolne'B of forest life; although, for a time, the sun's rays penetrated only too freely between the eparso foliage of the eucalypti. The main feature of the day, at this nlace, was an excursion, got up on behalf of the House of the Good Shepherd, in aid of the Penitents' Sustentation Fund. A brass band attended, and singing and dancing helped to mako tho day agreeable.
SPOUTS AT HOMEBUSH.-A number of sports provided by Mn Farlow, of the Horse and Jockey Hotel, came off at Homebush, yesterday afternoon. Between 200 and 300 perons wero present. Thore were four horse races, the first nf which, a maiden pUte, was won by Mr. J. Parkinson's horse, Paddy ; the second, or member's purse, by Mr. John Green's Unknown ; the third, a pony race, by Mr. Brown's Gnbby ; snd the fourth, a hack race,by Mr. Park- inson's Poddy. Bcidos the e there were several foot race?, the p innpal of which were a flat race, 150 yards, won by Henry Edwards ; and a youths' race, 70 yards, won by G. Hagan. Several other sports were improvised.
OONCEKT AT ST. MARY'S SEMINARY.-A concert was given last night in St. Mary's Seminary, by the members of the Clifford Cricket Club, ateisted by Mr. Benson Lees,
ventriloquist. The audience was not large, but appeared
I well satisfied with the entertain m pur
well satisfied with the entertainment.
THE AUSTRALIAN BLONDÍN.-A crowd, numbering bo tween two and thres thousand pe>ple, assembled last night within the canvas enclosure erected in the Domain, to wit- ness the perfoimanco of tho Australian Blondín, and were highly pleased with the entertainment, which is all it pro- fesses to bo. Mr. L'Eslranso has evidently malo tho real Blondín his study in everythine ho does; and wero it not that tho Australian Blondin has not such a robust form OB his Fienoh prototype, it would be very easy for any ono witnessing his feats to imagine they saw the world-renowned rope-walker. The canvas enclosure, tho rope, the stages at the ends of the lope, the mode of ascending and descending, the various dresses, the music, and the programme of feats are all similar. L'Eitrango commences his performance with a walk across the ropo (which is about forty feet from the ground) in a-mour, forwards and backwards, then does the chair performance, the walk across covered with a taok, and tho byoiolo riding, finishing with a disply of fireworks which last night madi a fine illuminatitn and formed a splendid hna^ to a voiy successful enterta nment.
VICTORIA THEATRE.-1 ho Chrstmaa pantomime was once moro repeated ot this Theatre last night to a very large audience of holiday-makers and others to whom it appeared to give every satisfaction and pleasure. Mr. Clint's exhibi- tion of portraits of men of the aga waa very much applauded.
v THEATRE ROYAL.-Last night this theatio was densely orowded in ovei-y part. The drama " Across the Continent* (the righi of representation having been secured by the management) was the great attraction. A drama some- what resembling this waa produced here some time ago, but the present is oomidired to be the original version adapted to the colonial stace. However this may be. it is one of the most sen ational of the ultra-sensational cla=s of plays. There is next to nothing in the story or tho language, the whole piece depends on the effe ts, and it would Ecarc:ly be straining the point to say that the drama wasperfnrlncd by the scenic and nieohauie/l artists, a-Bisted by the dramatic company, not that there is any fault to find with the acting. Every one-from Mr Chiplin as Joo Forris the h°ro, and Min Mary L. Young as Lou'so Goidwin the hero'ne, downwards -was tolerahle ani ma !e the best of the part. But as the point of the' play rests on the mechanic ii and scenic effects, it is fair to say that they wore exceedingly gcod, and refleoted credit on those departments of the theatre. Theie was scarcely a hitch anywhere, and everything went with a smoothness remarkable on the first night of a new piece. " Across the Continent" is announced for reoetition to-night.
Miss^ CHRISTIAN'S CONCERT.-The School of Arts was crowded lastnight on the OCCVBÍOU of Miss Christian's con- cert ; indeed there wero many persons who were unable to gain admission. This lady has the enviable position of behm a favourite in every colony she has visited. She has onlv occasionally visited Sidney, but nevertheless has estab hshed herself in public e-timation, as was fully shown last night, Her voice seems as full and powerful as ever, and she Binga with even moro expression and ta»te. La,t nicht elie sans Macfarren's " Tho beating of my own heart " Robandie romanza "Alla stella confidente," and the favourite "Auld Robin Gray." Encores weie demanded ox course, and ehe pave in reply to one tho song " O ve tears, which she has made so peculiarly her own. In »adttioa to these, shejang, wi.Uk.Mr. AudjswïaWax,. tfo
Quoc "ii% ci da rem," and with Miss Moon "Giorno d'orroro." Miss Christian was assisted in the con ort by a considerable amount of feil?nt. MÍSB Moon, a young lady with a Une vo:co, whioh only requires softrnirg to ba most valuable, sang ino polacca '' Son verein ve/xoso," from " I Puritani," with great execution, and al'O Levey's song "The Gay Guana." Mr. Fairlar gave '. The Gi-l'acts of England" and "Tho Miner:" un? a lady amainar al"o assisted. Mr. F. H. Du Boulay played two
of his favourite concertina colo*; and Mr. B. r£. Pirctval, I whom we do not remember t > have heard previously, but who ceitainlv plays îenurkably well, nave some flute solos in which he dimlaved great execution and much sweetness of tone. Mr 0. Huenerbein a 'oimpunitd at lho pianoforte during the evening, and with Messrs. Du Boulay and Percival plaved In a trio by Spintler, on theme* from I ?'Torquato Tas«o." Tho whole concert passed off very
successfully. Miss Cnris ian will give another concert on Wednesday evening next.
