The Approaching International Cricket
A gentlemsn, writing from Now York to
the Philadelphia Pten, says:
Last evening Mr. Waller, ono of the prin
cipal men of the St. George's Cricket Club,
d me that the English eleven are, beyond
question, the best eleven professionals ever
combined in a single game. Parr, in partic
ular, is not only tbe best batsmen going, but
has this season mmlo the best displays known
in me nisiorv oi me game. Twice mis year
be has kept his bat for five hours in succes
sion, against tho best bowlers of England,
nnd once made tho unprecedented mini her of
one hundred and fifty innings. The United
elates twenty-two are already agreed upon,
but their names will not be made public until
alter the arrival of the bloody Britishers.
The lollowing indicates tho ages of the
English eleven, with thonntnes of the coun
ties to which they belong, and the particular
points in tho game in which they excel:
JSottingnnm ueo. .rnrr, born in 181'B. He
is still at "tip of the tree" as batsman. His
defense is most masterly, and ho hits all
round in a most powerful manner. ITe is an
under-hand slow bowler.
James Grundy, born in 1824. A fait round-
nrm bowler. As a batsman, he has a strong
defense, nnd is good anywhere in the field.
John .Jackson, born in 18;!:i. lie is a round-
ana bowler. Tho fastest and straightest of
the day indeod, is wonderfully straight for
the pace he bowls, and on ground in good or
dor his bowling is very difficult to be played.
Indeed, so straight is his bowling, that out of
eight thousand one hundred and fifty balls he
bowled last season, eight only were wide. As
fieldsman be is an excellent slip.
R. Daft. Strong defense as a batsman; a
hard hitter. A very good field.
Surrey. William Caffvn, born 1828. His
position as a crickoter is that of one of the best
bowlers in England; his pace being medium
round-arm. As a "batsman and fieldsman he
is not excelled by any one. As a bat no one
cuts prettier than ho doos, nor more effectively.
. Thomas Lockyer, born 1828. He is the best
wicket-keeper in England. In this position
his play is a perfect wonder. As a batsman
be is a terrific hitter, and very successful in
Julius lsar, born 1830. A dangerous bat,
and will punish looso bowling severely. In
the Geld he is a very efficient point.
SuDRi-r. John Wesdcn, born IS26. One of
the bo si cricketers in England. He is a first
rate bowler and bat; in tho field ho is a splen
John Lillywhite, bom in 1820. A splendid
bat and flold, and a good ehange bowler. Uia
place in the field is cover point, whieh he
plays to perleotlon.
Cambridce. Alfred Diver, horn 1824. A
first-class bat. At long-stop ho is not to be
excelled. He is also an excellont under-hand
Robert Carpenter, born 1831. A splendid
field and first-rate bat. His defonce in hatting
cannot be excelled, ne only "came out" as
player last year.
We do not know to what oounty T. Hay
ward belongs. He is attached to the "All
England Eleven." Last season, against twonty-
two of Derbyshire, (with two bowlers given,)
he scored seven and twenty-two. His averoge
as a batsman last ,vear, in "First-olass Eleven,"
at sido matches, was seventeon runs per in
We find in Wilkvt'i Spirit of the Timet the
following list of the American players:
Ten or noarly ono-half of theentlre twenty-
two namely, Gibbes, Lang, Lilly white, Waller,
S. Wright, II. Wright, Bage, Comery, Scarlett
and Walker, bare been selected from the St.
Georgo's Club, of this city; five Uighsm,
Marsh, Crossley, Willby and Sharp from tho
New York Club; three Senior, Barclay and
Morgan from Philadelphia; two Hammond
and Nowhall froin Germantown; with Hallis,
from Newark, and Head, from Chios go. Of
these the most reliable batsmen are Gibbes, H.
Wright, Willby, Crossley, Senior, Head, Ham
mond and Newhall, while llighatn, Lillywhite,
Lang and Hallis may be counted on, but with
less certainty. The crack bowlers aro Marsh,
Hallis, S- Wright, Crossley, Comery and Sharp,
with H. Wright, Oibhes and Lillywhite to fall
back upon. Tho rival wicket-keepers are
Lang and Higham. and which is the most cer
tain and effective we imagine nothing but the
toss up of a half-dollar oan decide: but Hig
ham has more style about him. and manages
to produce the most striking sensation among
the bystanders. Newhall is an unrivaled long-
stop; and, of the whole number, nearly all are
aouve ana ueAierous id tue iibiu.

There is no law prohibiting a member

IrnnvrnsH from nmnlnvinff an ArnfLniiAn.ia
rite iiis name on documents or letters which
he desires to frank. There has been, however,
during all tbe time that the practice has pre
vailed as aforesaid, among the printed regula
tions of the Postoffico Department, one whioh
says that no member of Congress can authorize
his assistant, olerk, or any other person,
write his name for tho purpose of franking any
letter, public or private. This regulation ap
plies, iu terms, only to letters, and not to docu

regard to letters. Althongh the printed regu
lations hare denied the right of a member

practical regulations of the department have
uniformly sanctioned it.

in a heap of trouble. He bought a beautiful
residence up town, in East Sixteenth-street,

known taste, when lol and behold, a vory
pleasant neighbor came, and squatted
down as his next-door neighbor, and now
fuses to move "lor love or money."
This ill-favored neighbor is no loss a
sonage than Mrs. Cunningham, the heroine
of the famous Bond-street Burdell murder

may euess, Mr. Bryant, backed up by
other residents in the vicinity, has spared
pains to pursuade the lady to be cut off,
to no purpose
The neighborhood is a very aristocratic
one, and the affair, as you may guess, is

The cougar had beoome very muoh enrnged,

Cubs fob Divokce. Michelet, in his re
markable book, L'Amaur, mentions tbe follow
ing novel method of curing the disposition in
married couples to become separated:
In Zurich, in the olden times, when a quar
relsome couple applied for a divorce, the magis
trate never listoned to them. Boforo deoiding
upon the ease he locked them up for three days
in tbe same room, with one bod, one table, one
plate and tumbler. Thoir food was passed to
them by attendants, who neither saw nor spoke
to them. When they eamo out at tho end of
three days, neither wanted to be divorced.
Despbiiatb Ai-'FAiit. On Wednesday, the
31st ult., there was a fatal difficulty between
two men by the names of Smith nnd Hedg-
ficth, some twenty miles below Hickmnn,
iy., on Reolfbot Lake, ueur Wheeling, Obion
County, Tennessee. It appenrs thnt tin old
grudge existed between the - combatants.
They" met on tho day above mentioned, on
the road, both being armed with shot-guns.
Hedgpethtold Smith to preparo himsolf, for
he intended to kill him, nt the Bame time
firing, the contents of the gun taking effect
near or about Smith's stomach. Hedgpcth,
upon the rtiseiinrge ot ins gun, wooded ami
ran some thirty yards to a treo, behind which
ho took refuge. Awaiting a few moments he
concluded, as we suppose, to ascertain
whether Smith was dead: he ventured to look
from behind tho tree, when Smith fired, and
put the contents of his gun through Hcdg
peth's head, killing him instantly. 3!o ouo
was present at tho time of tho shooting; but
Eorsons coming up immediately aiicrwarn
ad tho above stntemont from Smith, who
died about live) hours after tho affray. Both

Latest Position of the Sah Juaji Diffi
culty. The San Francisco Bulletin, August
20, says the long dolay in landing British
troops would appear to mdioato that there is
nothing in the report heretofore published
that there is to be a joint occupancy of San
JunUf Island. We now have it, and will
probably retain possession until diplomacy
shall .settle the point whether it be American
or British soil. Tho temporary occupation of
ono or other party, or both, will hare no in
fluence in determining the ultimate question
of title But for this cutting of the gordian
knot, this seizing on the actual land, the ques
