--A match was made in Mobile, Alabama
, a few days since, between two citizens of that place, $150 aside, with the muzzle loading rifle and the breach-loading rifle.
The former, a muzzle-loading rifle, was made by a citizen of Mobile
, and backed it to the amount of $150 at three hundred yards. We give the result:

Nine consecutive shots from the Maynard rifle, averaging 2 1-12 inches. One hundred dollars of the money goes to the Military Relief Fund
