(Hampshire is a weak county, and was at the bottom of last year's list in the championship results. The scores by Hampshire show, however, that the Australian bowling was rather weak. Persse is an amateur, and is only 18 years of age. He appears to have both bowled and batted well against Australia,) Eeceived July 10, 8.25 a.m. London, July 9 Cambridge beat Oxford by 40 runs, and Surrey beat Lancashire by 10 wickets. The feature of the match was the brilliant bowling of Lees and Knox.
