HISTORY and MANAGEMENT op HOBSES. (Continued froon iVo. 140.) GALLOWAYS AND PONIES. The Galloways derive their names from a dis- trict, 111 the South of Scotland. So much esteemed were they at one time that the Scottish monarchs resisted their exportation." Tradition says they have originated from some Span horses which swam ashore from the of the Spanish Arma- da,, in the of Queen Ehza.beti 1 is astont compact horse, .seldom more than 14 hands high, ofabay color, small head and neck. It is noted, for speed and sure-footedness, but they, are seldom found now. Some smdll horses from Wales and the New Forest are often sold for Galloways. Galloways have performed prodigious work. -In 1754 one went 100 miles a-day for 3 days over the Newmarket course. In Carlisle, a Galloway be- longing to a Mr. Sinclair, of Kirby-Lonsdale, per- formed 1000 miles in a 1000 hours. SHETLAND PONY. A horse is- called a, pony when under the height of 13 hands—4 inches to the- hand. The Sheltie averages from 7 to 8 hands high. They are very strong for their size one of them,. 9 hands, carried a man 12 stones weight 40 miles ii one day. It has been disputed whether the pony and the larger breed of horses are. from the origma.1 stock. Tiicy may have one origin, and. c1 i i and food may have made.the change.The.,e>uetues are supposed to have been introduced from Scandinavia when the Norwegians'and Danes nrst obtained a footing in tlfese parts. Tiie power of endurance in these ponies is great. We read of one going a. distance of 172 miles in 23 hours and 20 minutes. During the drawing of the Irish lottery the expresses from Holyhead. to London were chiefly carried by ponies at the rate of 20'miles an hour. Shelties often measure no more than 30 inches, but a. pony was presented to the Queen, from the East, only 6- hands high. There is some contrast between diminutive creatures and the breed of coach liorsc,,s cultivated by desire of George IV., of which often reached 18 hands high. A horse was exhibited in 1845, 2 hands high,. j. In Ireland there is also a small breed of horses called Hobbies; they are of good form and very strong They were formerly in much esteem, so great, indeed, was the mania. for them, that their name became afterwards proverbially, applied to any object for which an individual might have a great affection—"it is his hobby" is a well-known expression. TBOTTIKG HOUSES. Before leaving the description of the different kinds of horses it may not be out of the place, to give a few words on the Trotting horse. The most .celebrated in England have been bred in Norfolk and Suffolk. The noted mare Phenomenon," which trotted 17 miles in 56 minutes, was bred in one of the above districts. The Americans have long been celebrated for Trotting-horses. In Ame- rica the trot is the only pace that is valued. One of these,perhaps the most remarkable was Tom Thumb, he trotted 100 miles in 9 hours the stoppages on the road occupied 37 minutes of this time. Silvertad was another of these extraordinary horses, lie trotted 1B| miles in the hour when 28 years old. .L_>
CONTINUATION OF RAILWAY WORKS. Our readers will be pleased, to hear that there is a probability of Messrs. Peto, Betts, and Co. re- suming work in the course of a few days. The crection of viaducts and other works necessary to complete the extension of the high level line of railway to the Crystal Palace, which had been stopped in consequence of the suspension of busi- ness by the above firm, who were the contractors, was on Saturday last resumed by Messrs. Lucas.
ATTEMPT AT ,Another bold attempt to impose false news on the public press has been made and has failed. The intended victims were the Daily and the Morning Post, but both journals detected the im- position. The Post very properly promises to place the matter in the of the detective police, and offers a reward of X20 to the messenger who deli- vered the letter, if he will give any information that may lead to the detection of his employer.

-v DESPERATE i I T TO MURDER A SWEETi x i AT STROUD. A most desperate attempt upon the life of a young woman was made in Chapel-street, Stroud, late on Saturday night last.. The name of the young woman, is Annie Weaver, aged 20. She bears a most exemplary character, and by her exertions has supported herself and an imbecile mother. She was assistant, at the shop of Mr. Brain, clothe dealer, and for the last two years had recei' ed ddresses of a young man named _-bl, Edward of exactly her own age. He was a working currier, and till lately had been employed in Stroud; but had recently removed to Cheltenham. Latterly she. had become dissatisfied with his conduct, and discarded him last Good Friday. On the following Wednesday he went to her place of business and produced a pistol, with which he threatened to shoot her if, she would not accept him, and he would have done so but'was prevented at some risk bv Mr. and Mrs. Brain, who took the pistol from him. Several times he who took the pistol from him. Several times he has come over from Cheltenham and dogged her footsteps, and she was in great fear of him. Last Thursday he saw her, and made whac he called a "last and was finally rejected. On Satur- aay night she left work about a quarter to 11 and -ty ni,, had about 100 yards to goto her home. Partridge was waiting at her garden gate, and when she got up he first struck her in the face, and then fired a pistol at her. As that apparently took no effect he fired a second, and then ran off across some gar- dens. The girl just reached her door, opened it, and sank exhausted. The pistols had each been loaded with two swan shots, and all four shots entered her side, but their force was greatly broken by her stays. The intended murderer ran off to- wards Cheltenham, throwing his pistols away, but suddenly" changed his mind and retraced, his steps. As Fie neared Stroud he met Mr. Superintendent Hanbidge and another officer driving along the road in search of him. He made himself known, gave himself uu. admitted his guilt, and said his 'intension was shot himself with the second pistol if the first had killed his victim. On Sun- day night it was teared that was dying, and Mr. Winterbothaui took her deposition at her bedside, between ten and eleven o'clock; but, in the course of the Bight, -she became better. The prisoner was brought, before the magistrates on Monday,-and formally remanded to await the con- dition of the wounded girl. THE EXPLOSION OF A FIREWORK MA-STJFACTORY AT PARIS.—Further details with respe&t to the fire in the Rue de Belleville state that. when the fire- men succeeded in penetratin *1 c nirs, he-v f >und 12 corpses, all the people inii it <1 "'no perished, and in the adjoinit 1 a.ve dead bodies and nine wqrkmc i ft tin11 lt ;l-e" and burnt, who were at 'once removed to the hos- pitals Saint-Louis and Lari where 5 01 them died oh Friday morning. A srihscripuon was immediately opened by. the neighbours for the families of the sufferers, but the Prefect of Police, while doing justice to the sentfeients wnica induced it, undertook himself to provide m every y.»j for the sufferers 'by this terrible ci.1la.5-e1. the loss of tjroperty is estimated at l2o,000 Jian.cs.* No one can say how the catastrophe originated. The Emperor arrived at about ioiu o clock in the after- noon, in an open carriage, to visit the scene of the disaster, passing tbrouga tne Faubourg du Temple and Belleville, where immense crowds saluted his Majesty with enthusiastic cheers, showing how deeply they hdt the sympathy thus manifested by him towards tne unfortunate victims.

TUB anaouacement tll8.t the arrangements fOT a Conference of the European Powers concern- ing the state of affairs on the Co have been abruptly "brought to a close, mix take .no one in this country by surprise. lironi the first it was felt that Pbengh it was well to attempt a pacific settlement of the dispute, th-c- probabilities of a sa-' c iy issue were very remote. The insuperable difficulty lay in the demand that Austria should come to the Con- gress prepared.. to discuss not only an adjust-, meat of the quarrel with Prussia, but also the cession of Yenetia to the Italian kingdom. We now learn that into this latter branch of the subject Austria has positively declined to enter; and. as nothing short of its compliance would have been satisfactory to all. parties, all idea of a meeting of the Congress has been at once relinquished. Naturally, Austria, by its refusal to complY with the terms of the meeting, will incur much censure, as being unwilling to try some other arrangement than that which may be brought about by force cf arms. But it is difficult to see how the chief blame of the hostilities which must follow almost 38 a matter of course, can be justly cast upon the Emperor and his Go- vernment. Yenetia is a portion of the Austrian Empire, made over to its possession and con- trol by the most solemn European treaties. It z is not, therefore surprising that the strongest disposition is shown to cling to the province, and to regard its sacrifice, on any terms that may be proposed by the professed enemies of the empire, as a dishonour 'and a disgrace. We in this country, looking on the matter from afar, and sympathising in the main with the ultimate views of the Italian people, may be ready enough, in some instances at-least, to join the cry against Austria for the stand it has now taken. But let us ask ourselves what would probably be the course adopted by any Government of this country, past, present, or future, in a similar crisis. It is difficult to draw a precise parallel between the position of Austria and that of England, so protected by its insular position from the pressure of sur- rounding States. But we can still institute comparison of cases sufficiently near to bring the facts home to ourselves. The position of Austria is this—that it is in possession of a territory which geographically, and by other associations, should more appropriately belong .to another country; and refuses to give up that possession on any terms. But England zn holds precisely the same situation in another direction. Undoubtedly, if geographical and local considerations are alone to have weight, Gibralter should properly belong to Spain. What possible right have we above., .other na- tions to the possession' of that invaluable post, more than is conferred by conquest and treaty? And yet what would be thought in this coun- try of a proposal to summon England to meet an European Congress, to discuss the handing over cf this position to the adjacent State ? It has a value to us, if not beyond price altogether, far beyond any price that Europe in Congress would be willing to pay. The offer to meet for such a discussion would be at once repudi- ated here; but the refusal would excite pre- cisely the same feeling against us, on the part of Spain, France, and other countries, that we now see displayed towards Austria, not only abroad, but to a certain extent here at horde. Again, it must be remembered that some of the States now anxious to press Austria to re- linquish. Yenetia, and to cast upon that nation, for its refusal, the entire odium of war, were among the foremost parties to the treaties by which it holds possession of the province. Prussia had its own peculiar allotments when Europe was apportioned out in 1815, and was second only to England in weight and influence among the States by whom the arrangements were made. But Prussia has showfi no dispo- sition to relax its hold on any of the territory then conferred upon the kingdom, although it is ready enough now to place its own designs in the background, and to cast thp stone upon Austria for refusing to do what would never been acquiesced in by any Government cf its own. And, with regard to England, we arc certainly not free to reproach Austria for sted- fast adherence to a position conferred by trea-. -ties adopted in the most formal and emphatic manner by this country. The Emperor of the French may naturally be excused for "hatting the treaties of 1815, and Italy has its immediate purposes to serve; but other Eu- ropean State? are without the same reason for arraying themselves' against Austria in the dispute. This view of the question, which we believe to be perfectly fair and just one, is of course a apart from the consideration of what would be best in itself for the Yenetian people, or best in the abstract if new European arrangements were now to be made in a pacific way. For our own part, we should desire as much, per- haps, even as the Italians themselves, to see Italy secured and consolidated," as its states- men 1 say, by the addition of Yenetia, and, finally, of Some. But neither the possibility of a speedy acquisition of Yenetia nor of Rome is sufficient j ustincation to Italy for hurrying the continent of Europe into war, the effect of which must be inestimable calamity, and the end of which it is impossible to foresee. Yene- tia must have come to Italy in time. The course of events and the chapter of accidents are fertile in such opportunities, and it would have been far better for the young.kingdom to have waited than to have., -.taken its recent course. The other .ground of quarrel between the States now arrayed against each other might have been disposed of without much dunculty, in the present temper of the Prussian people, who have generally regarded the con- duct of their rulers with disgust; but it is, without doubt, the thrusting forward of Italy to raise a quarrel cf its own which has dissipa- L ted the prospect of a peaceful solution, and hastened, if not created, war. y J
ADJOURNED BOARD OF HEALTH AND TOWN" COIMGIL MEETING. The above adjourned meetings were held at the Council Chambers, at the Town Hall, on Monday 1 win tjjp flowing oentlemen were present: f P f Esq., ex-mayor, in the chair, A1 'c men—David Thomas, and John Williams, i .:1 .:r.. m 1'. Councillors—J. Morris, J. Griffiths, Philip E i t, Thos. Trew, Joseph Eass, and John Jones. Mr. PhIHips, (in absence of the Town Clerk,) read the minutes of the last meeting, after which he said that a letter had been received from Mr. f Cobb, relative to the application made for the i-210 from the Markets Committee, in which Mr. Cobb stated that "he was prepared to pay the amount as soon as he received a, roeeipfc for what he had already paid last year. The meeting was theu that Mr. Cobb had made certain 'deductions for which Mr. Evans did not think it right to give a receipt in full. Mr. Bright moved that Mr. Phillips should see Mr. Cobb forthwith on the question.—Agreed to. The seal was ordered to be attached to a deed for £1000 on the New Waterworks. Mr. Phillips informed the Board that he had received an application for one guinea from Mr. David Thomas., for approving the security for the investment, on behalf of the Llanfihangei Club, and it wnnid be for the Board to say whether they would allow it or not, it was what was usual. The matter was left to stand over. Mr. Bass said that he considered it his duty to give an explanation in reference to his name being in the papers concerning the footpath below the turnpike in the Watton. He had consulted Mr. Cobb as to whose duty it was, and he said that the Highway Board had nothing to do with it. He (Mr. Bass) then asked the Council Board about it, when it was agreed, that the work should be done under the supervision of Mr. Kirk, the sur- veyor to the Board, and he therefore considered the matter taken entirely out of his hands. He (Mr. Bass) had said that if the work was not done, that several gentlemen had offered him subscriptions to get it clone, and he appealed to the surveyor. Mr. Kirk said that all he knew was that the Board gave an order for the work to be done. Mr. Bass said that he considered himself quite exonerated after what the survevor had said Mr. Bright said that he' quite exonerated Mr. Cobb and the Highway Board. It was not their duty to do anything to it. It was only a. walk that had been formed by depositing the scrapings of the road, but what he had said at the last meet- ing was that it was understood that Mr. Bass was going to get the work done by subscription, and it went out to the public as such in all the papers, therefore they were under the impression that It was done so, and he would again say that as the work had been v out of the rates of the Borough, it was v. the public should know that they had p,-u t ±< > nj thentselves, and that it 'had not been done by private subscriptions. After some further conversation the matter ended. Mr. Alderman Thomas said that the fire-escape question was ths next on the minute boos, arid he saw by the list of prices before the Board, that they could get one, with everything complete, for £ÖO, and he would move that the Town Clerk should be instructed to get one forthwith., with an oilcloth covering. [ Mr. Griffiths said that he begged leave to second Mr. Alderman Thomas's motion, and he should like to have it by subscription, that if the Agents of the various Insurance Companies were consulted, he had no doubt but tutt they would all contribute something towards ii, Mr. Alderman Thomas said t7- o r think the Insurance Companies jvould, a? io be for the benefit of the public, and not: for only who were insured, that when n c u e o t the rates of the borough, it was a" much one p son's property as another, and every one would by those means contribute something. Mr. Morris said that he quite agreed with hav- ing a fire-escape, and if the members of the Board were to take certain parts of the town and form districts, the money would soon be made up; he thought they should be very careful how they ex- pended the money of the ratepayers. Mr. Trew moved that the tire-escape should be paid for out of the rates. Mr. Jones said ,that he would willingly contri- bute towards getting a fire-escape by subscription. Mr. Alderman Thomas seconded Mr. Trew's motion, which was unanimously agreed to. Mr. Griffiths suggested the propriety of forming a fire brigade, and that the deputy Town Clerk .should wait upon the agents of the Insurance Companies to see if they would contribute some- thing towards keeping an eflleient staff of men. Mr. Lee, in-reply to the Ibard, said that about < £ 2 a-year for each man would be ample. He was onlered to make. a report by the next meeting. The meeting was then adjourned for a fortnight. U
THE CATTLE PLAGUE. The last cattle plague returns are the most satis- factory which have yet been published, and show a substantial diminution in the number of animals attacked. The new cases are only 1297 against 1932 the previous week, Only four inspectors have not sent in their reports in time, namely, Cheshire 1, Lincolnshire 2, and Flintshire 1, who returned together 34 cases for the week ending May 19. The north-western counties are still the principal seat of the^ epidemic, but here the number of new cases is little iiore tli:iii half that returned the previous week. The cases reported since the com- mencement of the disease are 244,455.
