On Wednesday Inst, thj challenge accepted by the St Vincent Cricket Club lo play tho Queanbeyan Club, came off with great eclut. The day turned out extremely Une, and the ground was in excellent order. Tho attendance was very numerous,and amongst tho spectators we riotieed many lending gentlemen of the district. Shortly after ¡0 the Queanbeyan eleven arrived on the {¡round, mid ware recoived by tho President »nd Members of thu St, Vincent Club, an interchange of welcome took place, ai d thc president, halyards in bund, h isled the " Union" and a new fl*? with tho motto, " Advance Australiu," ou a pole erected near tho lent. By a quat tor past eleven pré- parations being closed and everything announced by tho umpires, Messrs Wilson and Lawley, as being in readiness, thu Braidwood eleven took their position in the tent,Conk and Doyle appearing nt tho wickets. 'flic piny on built sides Was excellent. Both parties during ¿'io first innings, played with great caution, haviurj tho motto in vio.v, .. better safe than sorry," mid both side» wore fully deter- mined not to givu more cliance'th'aii they could help. Tba excitement'was intense, more particularly at tho crttn nioiic'jraoiit of tho second innings. The tnorer's'niatqiiea WAS besieged by those anxious to nrrivo nt the teure. Mrs Burke found n good customer in Mr Cunningham, who amused the juveniles by scrambling it iiuuiberitbi

apples tnd other fruit, causing any amount of merriment.
