TELEGRAPHIC. LONDON, December 25. The homeward mails via San Francisco (Sydney, 7th November) were delivered in London yesterday. December 27. The newly appointed Ameer, Yaboob Khan, has arrived at Jellalabad. His object in taking this step is uukuowu, but it is re garded as a sign of submission.

The utterances of premiers must always be taken with more than a grain of salt — one requires an honest pinch of the same sample whicli would be employed for sprinkling oil the tails of the wiliest old roosters that ever crew their own praises from the perch of power. And, of course, tlie late speech of Sir Henry Parkes at Ashnelu ls no exception to tlie rule. His ' Canterbury Tale' was told with a simplicity, yet a force withal, that Chaucer himself well miglit have envied for tlie utterance of his knight. We had modest opinions upon the questions of the day, and some how or other modesty comes very refreshingly from Sir Henry Parkes. From the tiuie he touched upon finance until he concluded with education there was the toucli of tlie masterly politician. His enemies may deem it the trail of the serpent, yet whatever it was there can only be an unanimous opinion that it was like the first chop to a convalescent | who has been deluged for months with bad broth. We should be very sor...
THE LAND SYSTEMS OF NEW ZEALAND. VII. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
THE LAND SYSTEMS OP NEw l ZEALAND. VII. Hawke's Bay was one of the small provinces, established in 1858. It was cut out of Wellington at the same time that Southland was cut out of Otago, and Marlborough out of Nelson. It is worthy of remark that in all these small provinces the land administration has been bad. Reform, when it reached Otago and Wellington, did not pene trate Southland or Hawke's Bay. The reason is not far to seek. In infantile communities the pioneer settlers, that is the pastoral tenants, are almost neces sarily the ruling class. In Southland and Hawke's Bay tliey started 011 their career with ' a liberal laud law ' ill force, which at first distressed them, but whicli subsequently they learned how to use and consequently were glad to retain, just as the wealthiest section of the squatting interest here is undoubtedly glad to retain a similar liberal land law, and quietly, but effectively, backs up those politicians who adhere most firmly to it. At any rate, while...

THE AFGHANS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
THE AFGHANS. Afghanistan proper may be said to date as a nation from a period a little before the Norman conquest of Eng land. We have little information with respect to this part of the world till about '997 a.d. At that time, Monsoor, a Tartar chief, seems to have held sway to the North- west of what is now our Indian frontier, and on his death one of his ofHders, Sebek-Taghee, seized the opportunity to carve out for himself, out of Tartar territory, an independent State, of which Ghuznee was made the capital. This Sebek-Taghee is regarded as the founder of the nation whose ruler seems likely to give our Government in India no little trouble, It would seem to liave always been an exceedingly difficult part of the ?world for the historian or geographer to deal with, and not altogether a pleasant region for military operations, ? as our own history can testify. Its people are of various races — the Afghans, the Tajiks, the Kazzil Bashees, the Hazarahs, the Hindkis, the Jats, and a n...

ART IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
ART IN IRELAND. Tbe opening of an exhibition of paint ings in Cork will naturally attract at tention among the general public. The fact certainly calls for comment when we consider that for over twenty years such an event has been unkowu, ex cepting always the yearly exhibitions of students' work in connection with the School of Art. The Irish Fine Art Society, which opens its Twelfth Exhi bition shortly at the Opera House, had had a chequered existence, and has met with troubles from -within and from without since the year 1870, when it was founded as the Irish Amateur Drawing Society. But it has flourished notwithstanding all things ever since a few ladies in the neighbourhood of Lismore thought out a scheme and pushed forward into the world of art an association which has proved so marvellous a success. From henceforth let no one sneer at amateurs. To the amateurs of the South of Ireland be longs the credit of having exhibited a sense of public feeling and private in dustry which...

THE STRUCTURE OF A HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 4 January 1879
THE STRUCTURE OF A HORSE. His nature is eminently courageous, without ferocity, generous, docile, in telligent, and, if allowed to be so, almost as affectionate as the dog. I11 his structure, the ruling characteristic may be said hi one word to consist in obliquity — all the leading bones in his frame are set obliquely, or nearly so, and not at light angles, ills head is set 011 with a subtle curve of the last few vertebra of the neck, which, at the shoulder's, take another subtle curve before they become the dorsal vertebra;, or backbone; which end, iu their turn, with another curve, forming the tail. His shoulders slope back more than those of other quadru peds, the scapula, or shoulder-blade, being oblique to the humerus, which, in its turn, is oblique to the radius, or upper part of the fore-leg. So, again, in the hind-quarters, the haunch is set obliquely to the true thigh, tlie thigh, at the stifle joint, to the upper bone of the hind-leg, which at the hock makes another angle...

THE BUNDOORA PARK SALE. The secoud annual sale of Mr. Samuel 1 Gardiner's pure bred sliortliorn cattle j aud horse stock came off on Tuesday, and attracted a large number of visitors. Some five or six hundred were present, most of the leading breeders of Victoria £ and a good sprinkling from the othe;- 1 I colonies being among the company. Tbe f weather was all that could be desired, and the trip was a most enjoyable one to most of the visitors. Before the sale commenced the company sat down to a magnificent luncheon provided by Messrs. Clements and Pliipps, to which ample justice was done. Sir Jolm O'Shanassy, in complimentary terms, proposed the health of Mr. Gardiner, and that gentleman replied in ap propriate style, assuring visitors tliat he did uot intend to depart from tlie system adopted at the first sale, and that every lot would be sold to the highest bidder.
