Referring to sports in Australia, u con tinental journal remarks : — ' Thoy recog nise tho fact that thoy have iv country admirably adapted, to tho breeding Oi race horses. The victories of Triekett, Lay cock, and Beacli on tho water, unclothe Australian Eleven on tho cricket Cold, have demonstrated that the white race rtntmnot deteriorate under tho influence of the Australian climate, and tho deeds ot Chester, Grand Flaneur, Darobin, Commo tion. Sir Modrcd, and Navigator, have lo.t no doubt in the minds of thoughtful men that the English thoroughbred lias not failed to flourish whon transferred to anti podean soil. Already America has reached across tho Paoitic in searoh of fresh racing blood, and secured Darebin and fair Modrod, and it is not unlikely that the day is not distant wlion Euglivnd and Atnorica. will both be glad to reinforce their racing strains with sons and daughters of tho southern hemisphere.'

The Barbarians had suffered defeat, but were not conquered. Having repaired their catapults, tlioy conceived a frightful mode of war fare. Thoy charged their war engines with all kinds of refuse, and fired it into the streets of Carthage, causing great gobs of gloom and un fathomable terror among the inhabi tants. Heavy Congressional debates on tlio tariff question were hurled into the beseiged city. These wero followed by silver-tressed jokes and rejected spiing poetry hurriedly snatched from the waste-basket of the comic papers. Tho howls of the affrighted people curdled milk. A London Times editorial of three column calibre, fired from a catapult, demolished the iron temple of Chin- 1 ehinuff. An italicised pun from an J English comic weekly pierced the parapet throngh and through. . Ham Ilkar,' tho father.; of Sal A...
