Hard Hitting.— Bonnor, the Australian giant, seems to have excited some sensation in England at the matches played by the Australian cricketers, both_ on account of his proportions and his batting. He is about 17st. in weight, and stands 6ft. 6in. in height. He is only between 22 and 23 years of age. During the match with Nottingham he made a hit fully 120 yards long, the ball dropping in a street leading down to the railway-station, _ and nearly alighting upon an omnibus waiting to take up passengers. On another occasion by an off-drive, he sent the ball on top of a house in town, and a worthy inhabitant had to “ shin ” tip the waterpipe to recover it.
