THE GREAT INTERNATIONAL RIFLE MATCH. This great match, between ten rifle volunteers of the Robin Hood corps in England and ten marksmen in the colony of South Australia, took place, as' far as England was concerned, at the Sudbury rifle range, Derbyshire. This great international rifle match commenced a few days since at the Sudbury rifle range, Derby- shire, the property of Lord Vernon. This match was the result of a challenge sent by Captain Macfarlane, of Milang, South Australia, whose company possessed the greatest number of marksmen in the colony in the year 1862, and the challenge was that ten of his com- pany would shoot against ten of the company claiming similar honours in England. One of the conditions of the challenge was that each side should shoot on a range where they had not been accustomed to practice. Captain Mundella's company, the 1st Robin Hoods (Nottingham) sent in a certificated statement, which having been submitted to Colonel M'Murdo, Captain Mundella was informed that his ten were expected to compete with the colonial ten: The Robin Hoods ob- tained permission from Lord Vernon to shoot over his celebrated range in the park at Sudbury on the 15th. At the conclusion of the match the following score was recorded:—Lieutenant Evans obtained a total of 133 points; Ensign Perry, 113; Corporal Eedfern, 125; Corporal Smith, 92; Private Bass, 107; Private Shepperley, 118; Private Noddall, 108; Private Brewster, 108; Private Coles, 128; Private White, 123 making in the whole 1,155 points.
