ASHBURTON V. GERALDINE. A match was played yesterday between a picked (iv.ni of tin; Geraldine Club and as 111 any uf the Ashburton men as could be induced to go and do cattle for the honor ot their district; and on the muster roll be: a;; called it was found that only nine were there to answer to their names on the ground ; however a couple of substitutes were found who made up the complement. It was evident that the visitors were out matched from the first, the Geraldine Club having in their Captain, Moore, the best all-round man in Canter-' bury, backed up by players equal to take part in a match against an All England eleven. Owing to the late wet weather the ground was very spongy ; and this must be accepted as an excuse for the inferior bowling made, as is shown by the analysis. Piorrepoint for Geraldine, and J. Ash wood, for Ashburton, however, did good service in this department for their respective teams, the former getting five and our local man eight wickets to their credit. Both sides deserve praise for their fielding, but the batting on the Ashburton side showed a great want of practice, which may be judged from the fact that Hodder who went in first, carried his bn t out for the small score of 11. Geraldine won the toss and elected to play first, innings. The following are the scores ; geraldine first innings.

Andrews J o 1 0 5 The match between members over 12st and members under 12st takes place in the Domain to-day at 1.30, and it is to hoped that a little more punctuality will be disp’avod than has lately been shown by cricketers. In the match to-day there will be room for any number of volunteers of all sizes, and those having doubts of their weight are recommended to gungo themselves at Messrs. Hodder and Go’s., and bring their certificates with them, and we understand there will be no objection to, say, 20 being tried in the balance together on Montgomery’s weighbridge and having an average struck, even if they are “ found wanting ” afterwards.
