Wellington, February 17.

The Australians were certainly out to play for keeps whsn the Wellington men went to the wickets, Ransford was given a v< ry brief trial, scarcely long enough to find a bngtb, and Noble replaced him. Armstrong and Noble bad all the batsmen in trouble, Armstrong was absolutely unplayable, as hie remarkable average shows—d wickets for 2 run 3. At one stage bis record r.6ad: Five overs, four maiden, four wickets, one run; and that one run oame from a mishit, the ball merely touching the bat and striking the batsman's pads, and going to where fine leg usually stand?, The Wellington batting was severely defensive. Gibbes was cautious for a while, an d then let go at the ball, which be evidently mistook for a half volley, and he was out, Robinson, a very con» eistent run getter, who believes in hard hitting, was expected to do something, but Armstrong found his wicket with hi 3 second ball, a leg break, whioh Robinson tried to pay, but failed. With Gibbes out for his first attempt at hitting, and Robinson out without being allowed to bit, the not outs settled down to try and keep their wicket 3up in the hope that things might not be ao des.. perate on Monday. Armstrong was turning from both sides, placing hi 3 field for leg' throwing to left hands and often throwing for right handers; and all so close up that an exaggerated blanket would have covered them all. Once when Robinson came in the field spread to the boundary, but this was only for a second or two, as Robinson survived only one delivery, Noble with the new oall dismissing a lot in the air, and occas--eionally nipping back off the pitoh. The rnatoh was resumed on Monday after noon in glorious weather. At 3 o'clock Wellington were all out for 71 runs.
