BIRNSTINGL & Co.
473, George Street, Sydney
A Pigeon Match came off on Tuesday last, at Hill's paddock, for a splendid silver cup, manufactured for the express purpose by Mr. Birnstingl, silversmith, of George-street. In consequence of a disputed shot by Mr. E. Clarke, decided in favour of the field, it ended in a tie between four of the candidates, Messrs. E. Clarke, Brother Rickard, J. Gannon, and Shuttleworth, and will be re-shot for by those gentlemen on Wednesday, the 12th of March. Umpires, Dr. W. B. Neville and Mr. Gaskell. There are some heavy bets pending on the ensuing meeting, and some first-rate sport is anticipated, more particularly on two by-matches formed between the crack men.
