On Monday last, the much-talked-of cricket match, between a party of the Military and the Australian Cricket Club, was played on Hyde Park, in the pre- sence of a very numerous assemblage of spectators. The game, it is said, was highly interesting, and was won in grand style by the civilians, as will be seen by the following statement of its progress and result, which we take from yester- day evening's Monitor : -

On Tuesday evening, as one of the mounted police was returning with the mail from Parramatta to Sydney, he perceived an armed man, when near Con- cord, standing in the bush, at a short dis- tance from the road; he immediately made his horse leap the fence, and attempted to take him in custody ; the man made off, and the policeman drew a pistol and fired, but without knowing whether his shot took effect, as the object immedi- ately disappeared. Ou turning round he discovered two other armed men, whom he immediately charged ; one of them kept dodging him round a tree while the other occasionally came upon him, striking him severely with the butt end of his piece ; they Tired at the police- man several limes, and wounded him in the throat and cheek. After having contrived to dismount him, they beat him in an unmerciful manner, breaking with the blows of their guns the shoulder brass of his jacket. Having succeeded in remounting his horse, he again leaped the fence, and got into the road, where they again fired at him ; the pistol he had was broken from parrying the blows of their muskets. On arrival in town he was conveyed to the Hospital, where he now lies seriously ill ; the wound in his throat was only half an inch from the the windpipe.
