I The Phoenix Cricket Club opened the season on Saturday by an afternoon's practice. The day was anything but propitious for cricket, still, though there was a severe hailstorm about two o'clock, some eighteen or nineteen players went down to the ground and had a very fair practice considering the bitterly cold weather. The wickets were, of course, slow, but they played very true, and members expressed their satisfaction with the appearance of the ground, the centre of which is beiDg topdressed. Several new members were seen batting for the first time in Dunedin, and the play of Mr Duray, late of Wellington, justifies the expectation that he will prove an acquisition to the Phoenix.
