PONTYPOOL. CHAPEL ANNIVEESAKY.—On Sunday last the annual sermons connected with the Zion Chapel were preached therein, by Mr. Starling, of Cardiff, and late of Mr. Spurgeon's College. The collections amounted to about B7. CRICKET,-On the 19th instant a match was played on the Pontymoile ground, between the Abergavenny (Com- mercial) Club and a mixed eleven of Pontypool and neigh- I bourhood. The Abergavenny players were the first to take the bat, and their wickets fell so rapidly before the bowling of Mr. Wiltnott-a bowler whom, we understand, has performed very creditably against an All England tea.m,"—that the whole eleven were only to put together 6 runs, which with byes and wides brought the total score of the innings to only 13. Against this the Pontypool men made 44., and in their second innings the Abergavenny side succeeded in making 36, leaving the Pontypoolians only 6 to win; yet this comparatively easy task (owing to the excellent fielding of their opponent-) cost them a wicket for every run to accomplish; so that on the whole the Abergavenny men made a very creditable appearance, considering the superior force they had to contend against. It is only due to say that the under- band bowling of Mr. T. Evans, on the Abergavenny side, proved but little less effective than that of the great gun" on the other side, whilst that of Mr. Gurney (Pontypool) proved very destructive in the second innings. It will be noticed, as an indication of the sharpness of the contest, that no player on either side attained to double figures, as will be seen by the score, which we append ABERGAVENNY (COMMERCIAL). 1st Innings. 2nd Innings.
