The opening match of the Albion Club, Captain v. Deputy-captain, Was played on the north ground on Saturday. The \Veathef was all that could be desired, and there was a very fair attendance of members, twelve a-side taking part in the game. J. M'Farlanc (deputy-eaptaiu) won the toss, and elected to bat; but his side only succeeded in making 49 runs, owing to the good bowling of Turnbull, who took six wickets for 24 runs. M'Master also bowled well. Grieve (17) and W. M'Farlane (16) batted very well, and were the only ones to reach double figures. The captain’s (Gollar) side then went in, and soon passed the deputycaptain’s total, making 67, of which Gollar contributed 11 (not out), Gordon (10), Gilka (10), and Burt (10). W. M'Farlane did best with the leather, securing six wickets at a small cost.
