The City of London Chess Club closed their season with a match of fifty players aside against, Hastings. la$tS^^^ players who to )k,part in the recently concluded Championship match of. the City Club \ occupied the top boards, alid th'eremainder?of the: team was recruited from the best sets of members. \ As a matter of course, the Hastings players were overmatched^ especially on the first boards.

K. and Mrs. Murray gave an At Home to the Ladies' Chess Club at their residence, West Norwood, on Saturday. A number of members of the local club ! and neighbourhood were also present, and several interesting interesting matches and consultative games were played with the visitors. The hon. secretary of the Ladies' Chess Club informs us that Miss Field, who was married on Tuesday to Mr. D. Anderson, a member of the British Chess Club, was presented with a handsome wedding gift, the presentation being riot the least interesting feature of the entertainment ' Mr. Pillsbury sent a cable message on Sunday announcing his departure for England route for Vienna. Showalter probably sailed earlier, else Mr. PiUsbury, if he had accompanied him, would have mentioned the fact. : The following is one of the games played by correspondence between Vienna and St. Petersburg. It is a beautiful game on the part of the Vienna masters, who won it in grand style. St. Petersburg, however, had the difficult, difficult, not to say impossible, task of trying to win a losing variation. The second game between the same masters is drawing towards completion ) EVANS GAMBIT. St. Petersburg. Vienna. St. Petersburg. Vienna. White. Black. White. Black. 1. P to K4 ... P to K4 18.

The same is the case irT the majority of the numerous other variations which have been tried. It is a strange fact that the variation beijphing with 7...B to Kt3 is one of the" oldest defences, and has. been abandoned as inadequate for many years, until Lasker resusciiated it, and it is*now generally admitted to be the best defence. The dreaded Evans Gambit may henceforth be considered demolished, if Tchig^orin, the exponent exponent par excellence of the Evans Gambit, cannot succeed with it, even in a game by correspondence. bf course, White could regain the pawn with 8. PxP; but the utmost he could hope then would be a draw,, and doubtful at that. Tchigorin tried therefore with 8. P to QR4 for a complication ; but the Vienna masters \ simplified the, game, nevertheless, by the subtle device of leaving the QBP en prise, and afterwards the QP. Neither, of course, could be taken ; for in the former case the Queen would have been in a dangerous position, and in, the latter case Black • would have got an immediate overwhelming attack".- St. Petersburg, however, did not fare better with 1 heir plan either ; for on the eighteenth move Black sacrificed a piece with 18...Kt x P.
