FOOD ADULTERATION.—Dr. Tripe, public analyst of the Hackney district, reports, that all the samples of cocoa he examined, except one, were sold as mixtures of cocoa, arrowroot and sugar, the exception being Cad- bury's Cocoa Essence, which was genuine. The quantity of starch in the other samples varied between 67 and 80 per cent., so that allowing for sugar, there was not in some of them more than 10 per cent. of cocoa. An article like this was comparatively valueless as a food."

EFFORTS are being made to induce Mr. Gladstone to deliver a political address in Glasgow during his visit to the north. THE Marquis of Hartington, the Duke of Argyll, Sir Charles Dilke, and other distinguished Liberals have been entertained by the Earl of Derby at Knowsley. CARMARTHEN.—Mr. John Glassbrook, colliery pro- prietor, Swansea, has announced his intention to con- test the Carmarthen Boroughs in the Conservative interest.. FURTHER PROROGATION OF PARLIAMENT. — The Liberals have proved to be quite wrong in their anti- cipation that at the Privy Council meeting held at Bal- moral on Tuesday the Royal warrant would be drawn for the immediate dissolution of Parliament. The Privy Council met, and the result is that her Majesty has issued a proclamation for the further prorogation of Parliament from the 1st of November to Friday, the 19th day of December. The convocations of the provinces of Canterbury and York are also prorogued to Saturday, the 20th day of December. LIBERAL DEMONSTRATION AT MANCHESTER.—Lord Hartington and Mr. Bright attended a Liberal demon- stration at Manchester on Saturday. The speech of the noble Lord was comparatively brief, owing to the state of his voice. He expressed a confident hope that the verdict at the next election would be in their favour, but if it should be against them a great load of respon- sibility would be removed from Liberal members. He admitted the existence of differences of opinion amongst the Liberals, but contended that they were a necessity of Liberal existence. Mr. Bright thought that upon the verdict which the constituencies gave would depend the opinion of posterity upon the conduct of the present generation. Our rivals were the people of our own race on the American continent. They numbered fifty millions, "and," added the right hon. gentleman, "happily for them they have not yet bred a Beaconsfield or a Salisbury to misdirect their policy and to waste their resources." CONSERVATIVE DEMONSTRATION AT BIRMINGHAM.— Sir M. Hicks-Beach, M.P., was present at a banquet and public meeting in connection with the Annual Conference of Delegates of Conservative Associations held on Saturday at Birmingham. At the public meet- ing the right hon. baronet was presented with an address, and in reply to this and to a resolution ex- pressive of unabated confidence in the policy of the Government made a speech, in the course of which he reviewed the public events of the past few years. He pointed out that in foreign and colonial affairs, the party to which he belonged could not, in justice to the best interests of the Empire, have done otherwise than they had done. Those interests could not be confined within the narrow limits of the United Kingdom, and such a policy would have conduced neither to the prosperity of England nor to the cause of humanity. Sir M. Hicks-Beach, being entertained at luncheon at Birmingham on Monday by the Conservative Club of that town, made a speech, which was principally devoted to a reply to Mr. Bright's observations on Saturday at Manchester. He said he agreed with the right hon. gentleman that if the Liberals had been in power there, would have been no danger of war with Russia, or with Afghanistan but the reason would have been because Russia would by this time, have been in Constantinople, and the Ameer practically a vassal of that power. The policy of the Government on the North of India and in Africa had been one of defence and not of dominion. He defended the financial measures of the Government, and showed how, in 18(51, Mr. Gladstone took the same course as the Chancellor of the Exchequer was taking now. He pointed to the success of the Ministry with the Irish University Bill; and observed that Mr. Bright s remark about the land in question requiring to be dealt with with a stronger hand was, in the face of the present agitation in Ireland, almost reckless in its wickedness.
JjOnign fntclligmcc. SPAIN. From Spain comes an account of a sad catastrophe in a storm. Forty houses at Menagalbon were flooded, two fell in, and two persons were drowned. GERMANY. THE AUSTRO-GERMAN ALLIANCE.—An official an- nouncement has been made of the Austro-German Alliance. A Prussian Minister, who is also a relative of Prince Bismarck, Herr von Puttkamer, stated at a public dinner on Friday that the Emperor had sacrificed his personal feelings to the public weal in concluding an alliance which he hoped would secure the peace of Europe. INDIA. The King of Burmah is sending an Ambassador to the Viceroy. He is to be detained at Thyetmyo, and questioned by the Deputy Commissioner as to the object of his mission. ZULULAND. The Cape mail steamer brings intelligence up to the 7th of October. Moirosi's stronghold is defended with unabated vigour, and the Colonial forces refuse to at- tempt an assault of the .place. The Boers presented Sir Garnet Wolseley with a memorial demanding the Queen's answer to their prayer for the annulment of the annexation, and, in reply, Sir Garnet issued a proclama- tion declaring that the British Government intended the Transvaal to remain for ever an integral portion of the Empire. The Boers continue their refusal to pay taxes and rent.
THE AFGHAN WAR. Colonel Noel Money was on the 17th, 18th, and 19th, at Suttargardan, surrounded by great masses of Ghilzais, estimated at 10,000 and upwards. They crowded the hills round, closing him in daily, and, lastly, command- ing his water supply with a heavy fire. Colonel Money husbanding his ammunition and men, put off attacking. The Ghilzais sent a message to Colonel Money, offering to spare the lives of the British if they would surrender. General Hugh Gough, approaching him from Khushi, heliographed to Colonel Money from Shinkae. On the 19th Colonel Money attacked and dispersed the Ghilzais, who were seen by General Gough returning in shoals. The Kotwal and four other persons have been executed for complicity in the murder of Major Cavag- nari and his companions. The Standard special correspondent at Candahar tele- graphs the result of the determination by General Hughes to attack a force of Ghilzais which had assem- bled at a village about twelve miles from Khelat. A force under Colonel Kennedy was directed to proceed thither, and, arriving there before any alarm was given, they surprised the advanced Ghilzai pickets. An at- tack was made on the enemy, and scarcely one of them made his escape. Our loss was two killed and 27 wounded, who belonged to the Punjaub Cavalry, upon whom a bold charge had been made by the Ghilzai Cavalry. Sahib J an, who was a notorious freeboater was killed in the fighting, and General Hughes thinks that this event will have a quieting influence on neigh- bouring chiefs, some of whom were quietly preparing to join the Ghilzai force. General Roberts telegraphs from Cabul that he is receiving plenty of supplies, and the shelter for the British portion of his force is nearly completed.

THE ALLEGED CHARGE OF FRAUD AGAINST MR. FROGGATT.—Edward Froggatt, of no occupation, was on Tuesday charged on remand, at the Guildhall Police-court, with unlawfully appropriating to his own use £!),OOO of trust money. The case was again re- manded for a week. A CENTENARIAN CONVERT.—The National Church received into its bosom a venerable if not a distinguished convert the other day. Mrs. Mary Travis, of Cottingham, Yorkshire, who is over 100 years of age, and hitherto has been identified with the Quakers, has been formally baptised by the Vicar of the place. FRIGHTFUL DEATH THROUGH DRINK. — William Glass, captain of a barge had been drinking at Rochester until he was in a helpless state of intoxication. In this condition he tried on Tuesday to get on board his barge, which was lying in the Meclway, but, in doing so, fell into the mud head foremost, and was suffocated, THE NATIOXAL MEMORIAL TO Sm ROWLAND HILL. —On Friday, a number of city merchants and others met at the Cannon-street Hotel, London, under the presidency of Mr. S.

The City of London is richer than Bristol, Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield, Hull, Wolverhampton, Bradford, Brighton, Stoke-upon-trent, Nottingham, Greenwich, Preston, East Retford, Sunderland, York, and Salford combined. —Mr. Disraeli, Feb, 28, 1859. SUICIDE THROUGH A LOVERS' QUARREL.—A sad suicide has occurred near Bolton. Miss Alice Glover, aged 19, daughter of a contractor, quarrelled with her sweetheart on Saturday, and after attempting in his presence to throw herself into the pond in Bolton public park, drowned herself in a mill reservoir near Bolton. Her body was recovered on Sunday night. The banns for marriage of deceased and her sweetheart were to have been published on Sunday. DISQUALIFICATION OF MUNICIPAL CANDIDATES. —A point of some importance has been decided in connection with the municipal election at Maidstone. The Liberal nominations in two of the wards were handed in at the Town Clerk's office by the Liberal agent, instead of the candidates themselves, or their nominators or seconders, as required by the third clause of the first section of the Municipal Elections Act, 1875. The Conservative can- didates appealed on Friday to the Mayor, who referred the point to the Recorder of the borough (Mr. S Prentice, Q.C.). that gentleman on Monday decided that the Liberal nomination papers were invalid, and two Conservatives consequently enter the Council un- opposed. Miss EDWARDS.—Miss Edwards, about whose mysterious absence so much has been said, has been taken from London to her parents' house in the suburbs of Liverpool. The following is a medical certificate of her condition:—"Kensington-lodge, Kensington, Liver- pool, October 2fi, 1879.—In August last I attended Miss Edwards, of 35, Rufford-road, Fairfield, for attacks of epileptiform character (petit mal), and since her return home I have had two interviews with her. She is now suffering from melancholia, and so incoherent that it is impossible to elicit a correct account of the last seven weeks, and it would be most imprudent to attempt to do so till an improvement takes place in her condition. -John Henry Wilson." THE TRANMERE BABY FARMING CASE.—The hearing of the Tranmere baby-farming case was concluded on Wednesday at the Chester assizes. Evidence as to the condition of the children was given by the porteress at the Birkenhead workhouse, and the doctor who examined them before they were taken there. The doctor gave in detail a description of the filthy state of the room the children occupied. He was cross-examined, but adhered to his statements. The verdict in the case of the child Alice was one of manslaughter, and both prisoners were sentenced to penal servitude for life. In passing sentence, Justice Brett made some very severe remarks on the practices of which the prisoners had been found guilty, practices, he said, which had unsexed the female and unhumanised the male prisoner. During the last tenyears they had decoyed no less than 18 children into their possession, and he doubted not every one of them had died in consequence of bad treatment. A PECULIAR IMPERIAL YACHT.—His Majesty the Czar has ordered the construction at Glasgow of one of the most curious vessels ever built. It is a pleasure yacht of some 7,000 tons burden, to be made of Heel, and to be driven by three bronze screws. The lower portion of this experimental craft will be shaped like a huge flat-fish, being almost as broad as it is long, with sharp sides and a pointed head and tail. The Imperial yacht will be exactly like a L'rill in fact, as regards con- tour and dimensions. On the back of this vast pleuro- nectid will be reared a floating palace of halls, saloons, boudoirs, and cabins, rising story above story, so that, though the strange vessel will nowhere draw more than fifteen feet of water, she will tower out of the sea high above the loftiest waves, which are expected to dash and break in vain against her enormous area and flattened bilges. The yacht will carry only a few light cannon, but if the design succeeds it is intended to build fighting craft upon the same lines to receive heavy marine artillery. THREATENING THE PERSIAN AMBASSADOR.—At the Hammersmith police-court, on Tuesday, Isaac Dcletsv, described as an Armenian, was charged with loitering, supposed for some unlawful purpose. It appeared that the house of the Persian Ambassador, at 80. Holland Park, Notting-hill, had been watched by the police in con- sequence of a threatening letter which had been left there addressed to his Excellency. The prisoner was seen to pass the house, and was followed through several streets and taken into custody. The evidence was interpreted to the prisoner in the Russian language. The case was first heard on Monday, but the witnesses could not be sworn, as the court was not in possession of a copy of a Koran, and the prisoner was remanded. The letter was written in Armenian, and a translated copy was read by the magistrate. It stated that his Excellency was appointed to protect Persian subjects, and not for orna- ment, and that, as he had refused the prisoner's prayers for assistance, he should kill him and himself after- wards. Mr. Paget remanded the prisoner for further inquiry. A PHYSICIAN ON THE USE AND ABUSE OF ALCOHOL. -Dr. Andrew Buchanan, president of the Glasgow i acuity of Physicans and Surgeons, in delivering an in- troductory address in Anderson's College, Glasgow, on Tuesday, said, in accordance with the evidence of nistory, his own experience, and the experience of many trustworthy men, alcohol was a good thing, a gift of God to man, which human perversity had converted into an instrument of evil. All who entertained views of the beneficial action of alcohol upon the human body ought to partake of it, and for any man directly or indirectly to prevent them was a wrong action and contrary to the dictates both of morals and religion. He spoke of the unfortunate consequences of refusing a compromise, but looked forward to the time when both parties will join in forming a code of wise law's for the repression of intemperance. Mr. Charles Tennant, M.P., in moving a vote of thanks to Dr. Buchanan, said he did not believe a measure could be passed to stop the consumption of alcohol, but thought a measure might be introduced which would obviate the evils of intemper- ance and give the benefits attaching to a prudent use of alcohol. MORE MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCES.—Mr. Henry Jones, Ironbridge, Salop, reports to the Wolverhampton police authorities that his daughter Marianne, aged 17 has mysteriously disappeared. She was last seen on Sunday morning, in company with another girl named Eliza Lewis, making towards Wolverhampton. Miss J ones was wearing a princess robe and a white straw hat, with a thin white feather on it. Her parents, who occupy a respectable position, are in great distress as all efforts to discover any trace of Miss Jones's whereabouts have been inefectual.—Considerable stir has been occasioned at Sheerness by the singular disappearance of a young man named Penney. He left Sheerness for Dartford on Saturday with the intention of entering into business in that town as a butcher, in conjunction with his two brothers. He arrived at Dartford safely, and in the evening went out of the town a short distance for the purpose of purchasing a block to use in trade. Nothing has since been seen or heard of him, although the neighbourhood has been carefully searched, and the aid of a detective called in. A reward of has been offered for any information concerning him.— Nearly a fortnight ago, when the day pointsman at the junction of the Crewe and Manchester Lines of the North Staffordshire Railway went on duty, he found the box empty and the night man gone. The points were locked right for the main lines, but there was no trace of the missing man, whose name was Wilkes, and who had borne a good character and had a comfortable home. Much concern has been caused and every search made, but without avail. THE ZULU PHOTOGRAPHS. — A scene, believed to be without precedent, occurred on Wednesday before the Lord Mayor in the Justice-room at the Mansion House. Mr. Phillpott, a bookseller and news agent, of Grace- church-street, appeared on remand on a charge of ex- posing indecent photographs in his shop window. It was shown on the first hearing that these photographs were representations of Zulus in their ordinary mode of appearing in their native country. The Lord Mayor, however, declined to accept the offer of the defendant to give up all his stock, to pay the costs, and sell no more of the photographs. Mr. Phillpott now appeared with Mr. Poland to defend him; and the London Stereoscopic Company, which had been one of the firms of photographers issuing these photographs, appeared in the person of Mr. Alderman Nottage, who was represented by Mr. Montagu Williams. The Correspondent of the Standard in Zululand, and Mr. Melton Prior, the artist of the Illustrated News, were called to state that the photographs complained of were those of Zulus in the condition in which they appeared, not merely in their own country, but in Natal and the Cape Colony, and they expressed an empathic opinion that a photograph which was considered the worst, and which had been headed by the defendant's manager A Newly Married Couple," really represented women, one being an unmarried girl and the other a married woman. On this evidence the Lord Mayor expressed his inten- tion to dismiss the summons. A remarkable scene then took place. The Lord Mayor refused to listen to the ) explanation which Mr. Alderman Nottage desired tc offer. The crowd in the court sympathised warmly with the defandant and the alderman and a. scene oi confusion and recrimination occurred.
IKON AND COAL. BAKRO-w-in-FURXI'.s. 'Monday.—This morning a nuicier tone is observable in the hemath-e iron trade, although prices are not disturbed, nor is tiifrc any change to note in the industrial position of the district. There is not such a pressure of business, although makers were they in the position to complete deliveries could secure a large number of orders, but at the present moment they have as much business on hand as they can attend to. It is probable that during the winter the industrial activity of the works will be maintained, although perhaps not much new business will be done except for spring deliveries. Prices range from 68s. to 70s. at makers' works. Steelmakers are briskly em- ployed. Other branches of industry are better supplied with work than of late. Coal is stiffening in prices. MIDDLESBOROUGH, Tuesday.—The market was thinly attended, and not only was business quieter, but prices were weaker for pig iron in second hands, the fact being that some are forced to sell, as they are obliged to take deliveries from the makers. Prices have varied considerably to-day, but the closing figure may be put down at 40s. for No. 3. Producers are not prepared to sell for immediate delivery, as their books are full for a few weeks to come. Forge iron, which is very scarce, is dearer than No. 3 again to-day, one seller having received 41s. for it. Iron is going rapidly into the warrant stores, and Connal's to-day have 86,000 tons. The finished iron trade is in a healthier condition, and plates for shipbuilding are again advanced 5s. per ton, bringing them up to £ G 10s. at the works. WOLVERHAMPTON, Wednesday.—-Coal and lumps are each advanced this afternoon Is. per ton, making Earl Dudley's furnace cord 9s. Slack is unaltered, Miners' wages will be advanced 3d. per day in thick coal, and Hd. in thin coal seams. No medium finished iron could be bought at former quotations, and a declared rise of either 10s. or 20s. in marked bars is deemed inevitable. The marked bar firms have all received good orders this week. Best pigs were firm but inactive stove was dearer.
AGRICULTURE. THE CORN TRADE.—The Mark Lane Express savs- Dull, damp weather, attended by a moderate rainfall, has marked the course of the past week, and the tem- perature has been rather mild. Satisfactory progress has been made with field work, and winter sowing has commenced. Very little of the wheat which has been stacked is yet fit to thrash, so that good seed corn con- tinues scarce and dear. The supplies of English wheat at country markets have been on a slightly larger scale, and in some instances the samples have been in rather better condition. After a season of bitter disappoint- ments with regard to the yield, it must be some consola- tion to wheat growers to find the average price 10s. per quarter higher than it was at this time last year. Foreign wheat continues to reach our shores in consider- able quantities, Friday's list showing an arrival of nearly 70,000 quarters and with more disposition on the part of holders to realise, the rapid upward move- ment in prices appears to have been arrested. The turning point was reached at the close of last Monday's market, when the tendence was decidedly in favour of a reduction. Values may probably recede 5s. or Gs. per quarter before the equilibrium is restored."
FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION OF WALES. THE FIRST CUP TIES. ALBION V. GROSVENOR These Wrexham Clubs being drawn together in the first ties of the cup, met on the Rhosddu Recreation Ground on Saturday last to play off. Play commenced at five minutes past three o'clock. Grosvenor were the first to show to advantage, and the ball was sent several times behind the Albion goal, a long shot by W. Price going very near, and one by Parry struck the bar. A free kick was given to Grosvenor close to the Albion goal, but the ball was got away, and well passed down, and put in front of the Grosvenor goal by Poole but the centre was not up enough, and it was again returned to the Albion side, and kicked away from the mouth of the goal by the goal keeper. Another onslaught was made on the Albion goal, Parry taking a short shot, which the goalkeeper prevented taking effect. C. Jones then got in possession of the right wing, and ran the ball quickly to the Grosvenor end, and shortly after it passed for the first time behind the goal line. Rogers twice returned the ball from his goal, but a third attack resulted in a corner kick for the Grosvenor. Edisbury, however, misdirected the ball, and sent it behind. C. Jones made another dash on the right, and took the ball right up to the Grosvenor goal, where he was knocked down. He claimed a foul, but after a little argument it was not allowed. A corner kick claimed by Grosvenor was also disallowed. A free kick was obtained by Grosvenor close to their opponents' goal, but the ball was got quickly away, and taken to the Grosvenor end. Poole took a shot, which headed away, another attack followed, and a corner kick was given to the Albion. C. Jones made a nice kick, and a sharp struggle took place within a yard of the goal, behind which it eventually passed. G. Jewitt made a run for Albion and made a shot at goal, but it unfor- tunately missed his mark by a few inches. Th Gros- venors then took the ball to the Albion side, but it was returned, and after being kicked away by the Grosvenor goalkeeper it passed behind the lines. Grosvenor got two free kicks, the first for a foul and the second for hands, the latter within a yard of the Albion goal; an endeavour was made to force the ball through, but it failed and it was taken down to the Grosvenor goal, where Poole had a fine chance of scoring, but he passed the ball to an opponent instead of taking a shot. The ball was then taken into the Albion territory and half- time called. On changing ends C. Jones made a quick run and sent the ball wide, but directly after (3.58) a, goal was scored by Davies for Albion. The Grosvenor men made an effort to balance matters, and were nearly successful, but the goalkeeper prevented a fine shot by Edisbury taking effect. Albion got a free kick, but the ball was again taken in front of their goal and a corner kick obtained. No result followed, and in a few minutes the Albion obtained a like kick. After the latter the ball remained near the Grosvenor goal for a time. The play was now extremely slow, neither side appearing to make an effort. Several attacks were made on the Grosvenor goal, the goalkeeper stopping one shot and another by Poole rebounded from one of the Albion men's head over the bar. C. Jones brought the ball up again and put it right in front of the goal, but they failed to get it through. A quick run was made by the Grosvenor forwards, ending in Edisbury sending the ball over the bar. Several more shots were made at the Albion goal, and a corner kick fell to the Gros- venor. The ball was put well in front and handled by a defender, the free kick, however, was badly made, but another corner followed, and the ball went behind out of a scrimmage. C. Jones made a run and the ball was sent rolling up to the Grosvenor goal. The goalkeeper threw it back it was returned, and a very sharp scrimmage ensued. Grosvenor next got a corner kick, and shortly after a scrimmage took place in front of the Albion goal, which ended in M. Davies putting the ball through the posts, and equalising affairs at 4-25. With only ten minutes left it seemed like being a draw; but the Albion men, who appeared to have the most play left in them, made continual attacks on the Grosvenor goal. Jones brought the ball several times up the right wing and put it well in front of goal, but the centre man, G. Jewitt, missed the shot each time, until at length W. Roberts rushed up and secured a second goal, and thus won the tie for the Albion by two goals to one, as time was called before the ball could be off again. Neither clubs exhibited anything like cup form, and had they not been drawn together it is more than probable that both would have been thrown out in the first ties. C. Jones appeared to be much the best player of the lot, and had he been properly supported, the victors would have scored several more goals. B. Jewitt also did his side much service as goalkeeper by stopping several well-directed shots. The Albion did not, we are informed, play their full strength, their captain, for one, being unable to play. The umpires and referee did their work in a most satisfactory manner, and cut short all wrangles by their prompt decisions. The teams were :— Albion.—Goal, B. Jewitt; tacks, F. Rogers and C. Roberts half-backs, G. Tagg (captain), G. Dutton, and E.Bolton; right side, G. Jewitt and C. Jones; left side, A. Poole and W. Roberts; centre, W. Davies; umpire, E. Phennah. Grosvenor.—Goal, R. Parry; backs, J. Thomas and J. Holt; half-backs, W. Trainer, W. Price, and R. Price right side, F. Jones (captain), and M. Davies; left side, T. Edisbury and J. Parry; centre, E. Hopkins; umpire, W. Lee. Referee, C. Murless. NORTHWICH VICTORIA V. WREXHAM. The first tie in the contest for the challenge cup of the Football Association of Wales came off at Northwich on Saturday afternoon last, when issue was joined between the representatives of the Wrexham and the Northwich Victoria clubs. The following are the names of the players :— Wrexham.—C. Edwards (captain), J. Price, J. Lloyd, T. Boden, E. J. Roberts, and T. E. Hughes, forwards, E. A. ) Cross and F. Owen, half-backs; H. Edwards and T. Jones, backs; J. Davies, goal. Xorthicich Victoria.—D. Molyneux (captain), M. Earlam. L. Jones, B. Dobell, and G. Plant, forwards F. Russell and J. Colley, half-backs; P. Hughes and J. Hitchen, backs; T. M us grave, goal. At twenty minutes to four the Welsh captain kicked off towards the Arches end, and then followed one of the most interesting and exciting game ever plaved in the county. Almost immediately the ball went bound- ing behind the goal line. The Welsh backs were on the alert, and in a few minutes the leather was again dancing about in the vicinity of the Northwich goal, and was finally driven behind the line. Soon afterwards a free kick was accrued to Wrexham, but, thanks to a splendid header" by Hitchen, it was unproductive. From a throw-in Forster placed the ball well in the strangers' territory. It soon became apparent that the Welshmen did not take to the ground very kindly but they improved every minute, and after ten minutes play, made it rather "hot" for the Northwich men. Now occurred the first exciting incident of the match. The leather was once more forced into the Victoria quarters, but it was adroitly seized by the defender! and swiftly carried to the opposite, and, amid much ap plause, it was finally hurled into the mouth of th< Wrexham fortress; but Davies cleared his charge ir clever style. The game had not proceeded many seconds ■ before the visitors, by some fast and clever passing, car ried the ball to their opponents' end, but their vigoroui attack was successfully repelled by the united anc energetic efforts of the backs and half-backs. Presently, Earlam dashed forward with the leather from the cv.trp if the. ground, and made a very fair shot at go^J the attempt ineffectual. In two or three minn" th-1 Strang.-)-^ 1 --nsiaught, nr.d bad iz not twr; i-»r -k- /•"•ivjfv t' e intruding objeci aud tinw us i,u- away as he couid, it is more than probable tha: t at.i.-tr -ouid have resulted. The play for the fiv v/ao very lively, the Welshmen pr&ssm,- she: ^poia-nts rather sorely. Ultimately the ball w;s kicked into touch,, and Northwich thereby obtained the advantage of a throw in. A grand run was started by the Victoria forwards, ending in a good shot by L. Jones; but the leather flew past the goal-post on the wrong side. A foul off the Northwich captain in the middle of the ground enabled Wrexham to place the ball in dangerous proximity to the enemy's stronghold, but Hitchen was in attendance and sent it clean away. Thus the game went merrily on, until it was exactly half an I hour old, when the ball by some neat passing was worked up to the home end and finally rolled quietly between the posts, the toe of Boden having given it the finishing stroke. At this success the partisans of the Wrexham Club were naturally jubilant; but the Victorias were not in the least degree discouraged. Once more the teams faced each other in the centre of the ground, and for the next fifteen minutes the game was more or less of a give and take character. At the call of half time Wrexham had decidedly advantage of the battle, and had scored one goal to the Victorias nil. The game from this point was unmistakably fast. Half an hour had just elapsed from recommencement of hostilities, when B. Dobell got the ball, and after running it up for some distance in beautiful style trans- ferred it to Earlam, who cleverly dodged several of his opponents, and succeeded in putting the leather be- tween the posts-a feat which was hailed with tremen- nous cheering. Matters were thus equalized, and in fifteen minutes the time of the game would expire. Elated at their success, the Victorias appeared deter- mined to gain a decisive victory, and desperate grew the strife, both teams, fully alive to the precariousness of their position, resisting gamely. Both elevens acted together with something akin to desperation and excite- ment. At the last minute the strangers, with one great effort, got the ball unpleasantly close to the Northwich goal, and with a well-directed shot, one of the forwards sent it flying over the bar. Time was then called, and the game was declared drawn, each side having ob- tained one goal. Cheers were heartily given for both teams, and the large company dispersed, having wit- nessed a brilliantly played game, which was rendered all the more pleasant by the most complete absence of anything approaching to wrangling or disagreeableness of any sort whatever amongst the players. The specta- tors, too, were very good humoured and appreciative throughout and cordially recognised a good stroke of play by whichever side it was made. As to the merits of the respective teams, it may be said that they were ooth in fine form. For the Wrexham club there was exhibited that beautiful combinition of forward ability which is always conductive to victory, while the back and half-back players were grand. Price, who is regarded as the best player in Wales, played admirably; and excellent service was also rendered by Edwards (captain), L'oyd, Boden, and Cross. The Victoria team never played better. The umpires were—Mr. C. J. Hughes of Northwich (relieved during a portion of game by Mr. W. Masters), and Mr. J. W. A. Cooper, of Wrexham; the duties of refree being discharged by Mr. S. Earlham, of Chester. To-day (Saturday) the Victoria team will journey to Wrexham, and again engage in battle with their opponents of last Saturday, on the racecourse, to play off the tis. A very interesting game is expected, the former one being very evenly contested. Kick off at three p.m. prompt. CORWEN V. BALA. These clubs played off their tie at Bala on Saturday, Oct. 25, and it resulted in an easy victory for Corwen by seven goals to three. For the home team Roberts, Edwards, Thomas, and Roberts played well. For the visitors the forwards all played well and together, Evans, the visitors' captain, worked hard and well throughout the game. The goalkeeper, Griffiths (a new man), will make a capital goalkeeper with plenty of practice. The following is the Corwen Teani.-Goal, G. Griffiths; backs, E. -iforris anil M. Morris; half-backs, D. Hughes, W. J. Evans, and R. J. Jones; right wing, R. Williams and T. Kdwards; kit wing, J. Roberts, and J. Edwards centre. H. Williams. Umpires, j Dr. Edwards and 1fr. H. Price; referee, Air. R.

This match will be played between the above clubs on the ground of the latter, at Gwersyllt, to-day (Satur- day), at three o'clock. ————— MOLD v. MILLWOOD ROVERS.—A match was played between these clubs on Saturday last, on the ground of the former, and resulted in favour of the former by three goals to the Rovers' nil. The Mold team, though weakened since last season, played well together, and their passing was the best we have seen them do yet. The Rovers' forwards were not backed up by their backs, yet they managed to assail the Mold goal several times, but thanks to the Mold goal-keeper, they were of no avail. The Mold club were represented as follows Goal, T. r,.o.,ers; backs, J. B. Marstou and T. Lloyd Hughes; half-backs, E. B. Roberts, T. Parsonage, and J. Thomas centre, P. Dykilis; right wing, S.
