ON THE.CIOICE OF ~A IIOKtSE.· Dy Mr Stewart, Sydney. , 5TRtENOT||, IPPED, AND r£t?DUflANCE. Strength, speed, and endurance, are regarded is the three most implortant properties ofthe horde. Many people confound stretigth atd action one wiih another; they talk and think, if there be any thinking in the case, as ifa 1,brie must of necessity be swift wlho iq strong, or strong if ie is swift... A ver~y little consideration is sutlcient to sitow that the two properiles are quite dietinct. r Now we find in the horse certain peculiarities 'in the shiape which confer swifiness of action, and certain others which'confer slrength of action;• and wefi nd farther that the form wltich is ntostt dapted. for sirength is least fitted for speed. The enoritous stretgth of the drtaght horse can never be com bined with the speed of the racer. When you want much of the one, you most sacrtfice a portiont of thie other. The two properties exist in almost ettdless'-varieties of.combination;. and lie choose...

Bitle of the Young Girafe.--The birth of the young giraffe, at the Zoo logical Getdens, on Sunday, is a most c?rious point in natural history, as a tew years since the naturalisation of this tender inhabitant of tihe deserts of Nuhia and Ethiophiaa was considered problematical.

'This is the second giraffe ever born. alise in IEurope, the animal never hefore having been known to breed in confinement, except once and with the sama ani,,mal at the gardens.
