CRICKET.

ASHBURTON V. BOROUGH. The above match, which was commenced last Wednesday, was continued yesterday evening, and will be resumed at 6 sharp to-day. The Ashburton team concluded their first innings last night, not, however, before Curtis had treated the field to some real “ leather hunting,” and had pnt together nearly a score runs for his side. Curtis was eventually bowled by McDonald, and the former’s partner (J. Foots) shortly followed him, being cleverly caught by Johnson at slip. The two last men having been disposed of without much trouble to the bowlers, the Borough Club commenced their second innings to the bowling of A. and E. Foots. For the Borough, both Andrewes and Hosking were in good form, and by some free bitting 1 both got into double figures before being caught out by E. Foots. McDonald and --1 -ic, the batting, but the former had to retire without scoring, and after his successor (Purchas) had contributed a two and a three, the latter was unfortunately run out. When time was called, Johnson and Davis were at the wicket, the former being well set. It is to be hoped the enthusiasm which was manife* J at the commencement of the cricket se? jn will still continue; but we must & /'ess to feeling somewhat surprised nat out of over 100 members nelor ,ng to the various Clubs in Ashbur ,n, so very few put in an appearance at practice.
