THE CHESS MATCH.

The match between tho Canterbury and Otago Clubs was resumed on Saturday evening. Dr Stenhouse had a good game at the outset, and stood very well against Mr I Ollivier for some time, but making a venturesome attack he fell into a miscalculation and came to utter grief, resigning to the champion of New Zealand at about nine o'clock, Mr Mouat is pitted against the veteran Mr Hookham. They played very cautiously, with the result that the game is in a critical position, and it is difficult to say which will win. Mr Siedeberg, a young Dunedin player of great prominence, has lost two pawns, and has rather the worst of his game; but he has done very well considering the strength of his opponent, Mr Bauer, who is one of tho best players in the colony. Mr Clegg, drawn against Mr Searle, played a peculiar opening, chiefly with pawns. The game broke up very suddenly, and it is almost as good as won by the Christchurch representative. Mr Irwin had a capital game when he commenced, but his attention being distracted at a critical point he lost his advantage and resigned to Mr Scott. Mr Duret and Mr Smith played a very fine game. Ultimately the former got two passed pawns, and this enabled him to score a win on behalf of the local team. Mr Angus and Mr Acton.Adams are about evenly matched, and there Beems to be nothing to ohoose as to the relative positions. Mr Cairol lost two pawns through an oversight, and it is feared he will have toresicn. Mr Throp has rather tho best of his game, and Mr Manders is about even with his man.
