ON Wednesday last the Return Match between the 4th Regiment and the Aus- tralian Club, was played an the Race Course, in the presence of one of the

largest and gayest assemblages we have ever seen on such an occasion ; His Excel-   lency the Governor honored the match with his presence, and was pleased to ex- press himself much pleased with the play on both sides.   The result of the match will be seen by   our list subjoined - namely, the Military beat the Club by nearly the same odds that the former lost the first match. The   result we attribute to the Military having practised a good deal, and the Club having indulged in a very unpardonable, laziness since the last contest. The bowling of Captain Mason and Hyde was equal to any we have ever seen in any but "all England matches" - wild or unsteady batting was sure to be fol-

lowed by the fall of the wicket - the field- ing of that side was also uncommonly good, equal to that of the Club in the first match, and we need not say more.   On the part of the Club, neither bowl- ing nor fielding was, in the first innings, particularly good. But in the second, both were admirable, and although the Military went in against 14 notches, no less than 6 wickets were defunct with only 10 runs. Had there been 20 more notches   added to the score, the result of the match would, we think, have been different.   The conquering match is fixed for Tues-

day the 25th off this mouth ; no doubt both elevens will make good use of the inter- vening time, and the struggle will be a severe one.   We cannot but here congratulate the youth of the Colony upon the footing which the manly game of cricket has ac- quired - few amusements are productive of better efforts, corporally and morally - few are so free from the contamination of those evils which infuse themselves into all public meetings. Gambling and intem- perance can have little aliment from this     active and uncertain game. We are happy to hear that His Excellency has promised that in the contemplated laying out of the Race Course, a space shall be left and im-   proved for the more successful pursuit of this pride of English sports : -
