INTERNATIONAL MATCH. WALES v. IRELAND. This match was played on baturdajr at ceirasu, and resulted in a draw, each side scoring one goal. The Welsh team, who went by steamer from Liver- pool to Belfast, had a tempestuous passage, which caused several to suffer from that most unpleasant, malady-mahle iiier, which in a great measure inter- fered with them showing their usual form. After the teams had been photographed they appeared upon the field, and were greeted with applause by the crowd of spectators already assembled at the ropes. The Irish captain (Hastings) having won the toss, elected to I play with the wind in his favour, and Wales kicked off. In a few seconds the ball was brought into the re° gion of Ireland's goal, and the backs were obliged to give a "corner" to avert danger. Nothing re- sulted from this. and from the kick out M'Wha and Davison had a smart run down the right side. and centred to Morrow, who kicked wide. Adams got a "free "off, which the Welsh centres dribbled nearly up to the front of Ireland's goal; but the pressure was relieved by Watson, who played throughout the day a hard, defensive game, in which he was well assisted bv Rattray. The latter especially used head play with great advantage to his side. For fuliy play with the play was of a gi ve-and-take de- scription between the backs of both sides, and in this was exhibited the first-class kicking of Powell, the Welsh captain. Wales secured another corner, but! made nothing of it. Molyneaux relieved, but the ball was quickly returned by E. Jones, who centred beautifully. The Welsh centre missed, and Dill, I getting possession, made a brisk run, in which the rest of the Irish forwards failed to back him up, and J. Jones checked him, and transferred the ball to the Welsh left wing, where Vaughan was in waiting He, with E. Jones, now exhibited some neat passing and dribbling, and battled Ireland's backs, kicking at last into Rankine's hands. The ball was well stopped, and thrown to Spider, but immediately Price, of Wrexham, tackled him, and, kicking wide of the I posts, gave Ireland a goal kick. The kick-out gave M'Wha and Davison, who during the first half had almost all the hard forward play, an opportunity of combining, and a pretty dodgy run ended in a smart I shot by the latter, which Adams caught in the nick of time, and saved his charge. Immediately after I this half-time was called by the referee, and no points had as yet been scored. The ball had been frequently in touch, but the throws-out did not appear to be fully taken advantage of by either team, no doubt owing to the new method of bringing the ball into play. On resuming, Ireland kicked off, and the first result of the change of ends was seen to be a transfer of the hard work from Ireland's luft and Wales' right. Here Dill was in grand form, and made frequent runs, being well backed up by Spiller, but the half-back (J. Jones, Berwyn Rangers) proved too many for them frequently. From a throw out the Welsh right wing got possession, and after dribbling past Hastings centered to Davies he in turn passed to Vaughan, who made a screw kick to place the ball in front of Ireland's goal. Here Watson tried to relieve, but owing to the force of the wind received the ball awkwardly, and kicked a goal for Wales amidst laughter. Ireland now kicked off. and played rather slowly at first, damped by this loss, but soon Dill and Spiller, being well fed by Hastings, made things hot. for Powell and Hughes, the Welsh backs, and Spiller shot at coal from such a distance that the custodian easily stopped. Wales replied by a run on the left! wing, when Vaughan and Eyton-Jones showed some wonderful dodging, but their final shot only produced a corner. Itattray saved by heading the ball, and Morrow now began to show up among Ireland's for- wards. In the fore part of the game he appeared to have lost his customary dash, but at length he awoke to the knowledge that something must be done. From a neat screw by Dill, Hughes (North- wich) got an opportunity of giving his left wing another run. Watson was in time, and giving, the ball to Morrow, a magnificent run was made by him, I in which the Welsh backs were baffled successively, and a goal for Ireland was kicked by Morrow amidst I much cheering. This equalised the score, and thence- forward the game was very fa?t, both teams being determined to win. Just before call of time a com- I bined run was made by the Irish forwards, and when I in front of goal the final kick was entrusted to Potts, whose shot went scarcely a foot wide of the posts. Run after run was made by the respective left wings. I but no further score was made. I A pleasant game thus ended in a draw, each side having got one koal. Teams :— ) IRELA-ND.-Goal, J.

EXTRAORDINARY OUTRAGE IN MONTGOMERYSHIRE. —An occurrence very unusual for Wales has taken place near Cecuuiaes, a village in Montgomeryshire: A farm having been vacant for more than twelve months, got into a neglected condition, the fences being broken down, and the sheep and cattle I belonging to neighbouring farmers trespassed freely, on the land. A few days ago the agent of the estate, II accompanied by several assistants, suddenly made hill appearance on the farm and found 140 sheep grazing there. They proceeded to pound them, when a number of the neighbours assembled, and succeeded in rescuing the sheep from the agent's custody. Two i nights afterwards the farm buildings were discovered to be on fire, and when the police and others arrived I they found that some of the doors of the dwelling- house, all the doors of the out-buildings, and several held gates had been piled up in the stable, above which was a loft of dry deals, and the whole set on fire. Before the flames could be subdued they had consumed the stable, barn, and outbuildings. The police are actively engaged in investiratintr tho -g-n' matter. ° — I NORTH WALES NARROW GAUGE RAILWAYS COM- NY'—'P'e 21st half-yearly meeting of the North IVales Narrow Guage Railways Company (the Moel I Tryvan) was held on Tuesday, at the Queen"* Hotel, ¡ Manchester; the chairman (Mr J. C. Russell) pre- siding. The other shareholders present were Mr A Fitzgibbon, Stanmore, Middlesex and Mr J. Stott. I The report stated that there was a decrease in the earnings from all sources of £015, and an increase in working expenses of RGI, making a net decrease in the net revenue for the half-year of 1:108. This was due to a falling off in slate traffic and passenger traffic, which was not compensated for by the increase in merchandise and coal traffic. Thre. had been an increase in first and second class passengers, and a decrease in the third class.— The Chairman, in movin the adoption of the report, explained that the decrease I in the number of third class passengers was attribut- able to the falling off in the contract tickets taken by quarrymen, owing to the closing of one of the quarrieli in the district. The slate traffic had been extrerneiv bad, and the total result was that the receipts were 1:81 less than they were in the corresponding half of last year, but compared with 1830 they showed an in- crease of £ 11.— Mr Fitzgibbon seconded the motion.- Mr Stott urged that an effort should be made to ex- tend the line to Beddgelert, and commented upon the small amount of receipts ( £ 1500 for the half-ye ir) though the capital subscribed in the undertakiii" was I £ 125,000.—The Chairman concurred in the suggestion to extend the line, and said that he should unite with the other shareholder in contributing the additional capital retluired.-The motion was passed, and the meeting terminated with a vote of thanks to the ¡ Chairman.
