[By Tjbleobaph.] (fkom odb own correspondent.) Chbkstchukch, January 18th. Second Day. - Hay was commenced this morning at ten minutes to one. Neilson started bowling slows in the place of Sweet, Rose facing him. The ground was very swampy and dead, owing to last night's rain. Ashby bowled at the other end. His second ball was a wide. Clarke cut his next for a single, and next over drove Neilson for 1. Clarke managed to sore another single, and Rose hit one hard to Secretan, who held it ; and an appeal fur a catch vas made, but the verdict was not out. 30 up. A bye was tLcn scored off the slows. Clarke scored 2 more, and the follow on was saved. Ro.se drove Asbby for 3 ? and Clarke served him the

same way for a single. He then sent Neilson to long on for another sisgle, and treated Ashby to the same dose. He again repeated the performance, snd Kose, in attempting an impossible run, was run cut, the score standing at 61—10—15. The last man, Rose, •who had gone in first, played a patient, but not a run getting innings. Lunch now ensued, and in the interim the wicket was changed. The Canterbury team were first represented by Ollivier and J. Fowler, Millington bowling at the top em.l, aud Morrison at the other. Millington commenced business with Ollivier. Ollivier drew first blood with a single and an overthrow to boot. In Morrison's over, Fooler snicked a leg for a single. Millington then bowled Fowler a maiden, and off Morrison's first ball Ollivier sent his to leg for 1. Millington then bowled a maiden to Ollivier. At this juncture a nasty north-east breeze was blowinorngbt across the wickets. The first ball in the next over from Morrison was fatal to J. Fowler. 4— l— L Corfe followed, and theover was finished without any results ; but I Olhvier was clean bowled by Millington's second ball 4—2—3. Moore then joined Corfe, and it was- thought that the top i scorers of yesterday would make another determined stand. Moore commenced by cutting Millington for a single. The second ball in Morrison's next over was splendidly played by Moore, but the ball was well taken by Rhodes, who, however, failed in the throw up, and the consequence was a single. Moore then drove Millington in succession tor 2 twos and a single, and 10 up was signalled from the board. Moore cut Morrison to cover point for 2, and played the same bowler splendidly for 3to leg. Moore played Millington forward for a single, and in the next over got Morrison away to leg for a 1 ' after a Bnick to le S by iloore: off Milhngton, Corfe was clean bowled— l 9— 3—^). Leach followed, and after Moore scoring a single eff Morrison, Leach cut him beautifully, for 2. The third ball of the next over by Millington was too much for, Moore, who ■ scored his, l6 in grand style— 22 — 4—16. Alpe was the next, but Leach put Morrison to leg for.a single,' and^ Alpe scored 2 in the same directicn and a sirgle in the slips, Leach cutting a ball for the same figure. Millington and Morrison both bowled maidens, but at Millingtors's - third ball in the next over, Leach cut him in great style for 2 to long slip, and after the same batsman j- had secured another single the board signified 30 up. The day had evidently cleared up, and iihe attendance was very numeious, as many as 2000 being upon the ground, and the ladies 9 marquee was liberally patronised. Morrison bowled a maiden, and in-Millington's next over Alpe stole a' little one at point. Morrison ' bowled a maiden, and in MilUngton's next over Leach let him off to leg. Both he and Alpe were now evidently well set, and intended staying. Morrison bowled a maiden, and in Millington's next over Alpe was caught by Read— 32— s— 4. Ashby then tried conclusions, and. took first .baa from Morrison, but the last.ball qf the over topk his wicket— 32— 6—o. Secretan followed. .After a leg-bye Secretan drove Morrison for 2, and put another in the olips for the same figure. Leach continued to treat &' number of leg balls with the greatest leniency, and withont adding anything further to. the score., Secretan was caught, by Meares— 3B— 7— 4. Neilson took the. bat, and Millington bowled him a maiden. Leach then cut Morrison for a single. MiUington bowled another maiden, and 'Morrison's first ball in the over Neilson drove away for 3, which, but for tb,e sloppy nature of the ground, ought to have been a five. Leach stole a single off the same bowler, and then drove Millington to the off for two, and in the next over Neilson scored on* in the slips. He then sent Milling ton flying ;for 4, and- 50 up resounded on all aides.!. Leach, drove Morrison for two, and again Neilson sent Millington a drive on for four, and sabred a single' in the. slips. Heade then took the bowling at Morrison's end, and at the third ball of the over Neilsofl was badly missed by Morrison off a skyer.. Leach then put Readeaway fot .» couple, and .60 .up' was announced. Millington then bowled Neilson a maiden : in the . second ball of Reade's over, Leach scored two and one by an ever throw. Neilson drove Millington for another three, and Leach treated the same bowler to a couple. After a leg-bye, Neilson drove Reade for a three, which would have been more but for the admirable manner in which the ball was fielded by Morrison. The last ball of the over Leach hit for a single. Bouch commenced bowling at Millington's end, and a succession of wides was the result. The next over Neilson sent a ball from Reade in amongst the crowd, for three to leg, and Reade bowled another wide. After another single by Neilson, 80 up was telegraphed. A leg bye was all that was scorod next over. Neilson then cut Bouch for a single, and was playing very beautifully. Reade's first ball next over ho sent to leg for three, and treated Bouch's firsb ball next over to a drive for the same figure. Leach stole another single, and 90 up was announced at this period of the entertainment, Neilson had scored 32, and Leach 21. Next ovei Morrison again indulged in a wide.

On renewing the game the second ball from Mcrrison Neilaon sent away for 3, and Leach followed by a single in the slips. The next ball was cut by the same player for a like figure, and Neilson persisted in prolonging the agony. The first and last balls of the next over Neuson sent for two twos, and after scoring 2to leg, Neilson had made 44. At this time the fielding of the Otago team was especially good. Paramor then relieved Bouch. His second ball Neilson manipulated for 3, but after this Leach managed to put a skier into Clarke's hands, which was not refused — 110—8—25. Sweet then took the bat. and Morrison's second ball he cut for 2, ana sent the next flying to leg for a single. He then drove Morrison for 2, and made another splendid drive, the last ball of the over, which was splendidly fielded by Meares, and no runs were obtained. Neilson scored 1 off Rose, and a couple to leg off Morrison, treating the same bowler next ball to a drive for 3, and 120 up was the result, amid loud cheering:. Sweet scored a single off 'Morrison, and another off Paramor, when Neilson was missed by Clarke — a very hard catch.

Sweet then drove Paramor to leg for a single— l3o up. t Millington came on al,a 1 , Morrison's end. asd the first ball Sweet drove away for 4. A wide ensued, but Sweet was caught at the last ball in the over by Meares, having scored his 15 very quickly. 138-9—15. E. Fowler then went in and scored a little one to leg, and at Millington'a second ball in the next over E. Fowler was bowled. Neilsou made a splendid innings of 57, not out, giving only two chances. From the above ii will be seeii that the eleven were out for 139, and Otago requires 212 to beat. Though there waa only about ten minutes in which to play, Otago went out again, Meares and Cargili showing to tbe fore. Ashby commenced the bowling, aud a maiden was the result, Sweet bowling at the other end. During fi\e overs, only 1 more run was obtained when tiin3 was called, and #je match will be ' resumed to-morrow,
