The Supposed Sunken Eock in

of his vesselhaving touchedupon a sunken
rock when leaving Napier roadsteadfor
Wellington, Mr. Murray, the pilot, went
out to the spot indicatedbut could discover
no rock or any trace of one. On Thursday
last another examination wasmade by the
deputy pilot, who with two boats' crews,
was engaged from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. inthe
search, but wholly without success. Indeed, in the spot where the rock should
be, according to the bearings given by
Capt. G-ibson, they found nine fathoms of
water. It was surmised by one of the
Southern papers, at the timeof the occurrence being reported,that,as no suchrock
was laid down in the Admiralty charts of
1861, the earthquake of February last

Scbley and another v. J. 3L Stuart^-This was
an adjourned case the plaintiffs not havinghad
their witnesses at the previoushearing. Stej/Xitu
McGreevy was examined for the plaintiffs as to
the state of the tarpaulin which was in dispute,
and stated that it was used at Clive and found
full of holes in the morning. The defendant's
storeman was called, who stated thatthe tarpaulin, when returned, had some holesin it.but they
were, to his belief, caused by the corners of cases,.
&c. Judgment for defendant, with costs, 9s.
The defendant stated thathe would allow plaintiffs £3 off the price of the tarpaulin as it had
not suited them.
Dyett v. Marsh. This was a claim for £20,—
the plaintiff having abandoned £6 8s 9d to bring
the amount within the jurisdiction of the court.
The defendant paid into court £6 12s, andproduced a letter from Mr. Loxley, of Wellington,
stating that he had placed £20 to theplaintiff's
credit on account of defendant, andwhich plaintiff had only credited as £10. Plaintiff explained
this by stating that Mr. Loxley had written to
him, stating that, although he owed Capt. Marsh
£20, he could only at present spare £10. Plaintiff, however, could not produce the letter. Another item of £3, for theservice of anentirehorse,
had not been deducted as agreed. These amounts,
with the sum paid into court, and 8s tendered by
defendant, made up the amount of £20. Judgment for defendant, and costs, 9s.

of a devoteein every clime where the breed of
horses might suggest improvement or invention.
His mission and he does not attempt to disguise it— is to overthrow the empire of the English race horse in favor of the Arab, regarded
as the orthodox seminal principle of the hack.
With this end, ashe warms to the revolutionary
task he has set himself, he summons before his
tribunal, one by one, all the traditionary authorities on the subject, andhandlesthem in the spirit
of v Jacobin. There can be no doubt that for a
long time a reaction has been setting in against
the dictatorship of Youatt and Stonehenge. The
latter's outrageous advocacy of the superiority of
the English horse in general, and the race horse
in particular, had provoked, both at home and
abroad, doubts about the merit of a cause that
was pleaded with so little reference to the logic
"of fact, and so muchirrational ardour inbehalf
of traditional theory. But perhaps one of the
most vigorous embodiments of that reaction is
now before us in the shape of Mr. Curr's treatise.
No one before him has, by the light of personal
experienceand collateral testimony, shown with
so much clearness the rottennessof the foundation on which the alleged supremacy of the English raceris based as the sireof the saddle horse.
Taking Stonehenge as his text book,he makes
him convict his favorite out of his own mouth.
He makes him bear testimony to the fact that
ihe high-bred animal of the English turf is getting more and more useless an overfed,prematurely developed,
" soft, and washy creation of the
stud-book, on the road a failure, on the turf a
national folly." Thereal origin of the deterior-ation we have ourselves always attributed to the
introduction of short heats and light weights.
The moment the four miles and twelve stone became unfashionable, the forcing system comnieuced. Soundness and endurauce gave way to
speed and stride :and as the latter qualifications
could be obtained without maturity, the race of
pampered fillies followed. It is easy to see how
in this way a progeny of fleet roarers and cripplers were gradually propagated. From horses
bred to meet these requirements, mere weeds of
the turf, does the saddle horse inherit its long
legs, straight .shoulders, weak constitution, and
■want of all those qualities for which, in other
days, the old English horse was renowned. At
the same time,there are exceptions to every rule.
Achievements are recordedof the English horse
equal to, and far less legendary than those of
Dick Turpin's mai'e, wliich neither ourselves nor
Mr. Curr should wilfully overlook. This is the
testimony which the newly-published story of
Sir Tatton Sykqs1.life offers to-hisprowess. "On
one occasion after .riding sixty-three miles from
Sledmere that morning, he was second in the
four miles Maccaroni Stakes at Pontcfract, slept
at Doncaster that night, and was beaten

and, without stopping to dine, went back to sleep

after a six days' ride, just in time to see Blacklock beat for the St. Leger. The 360 miles were
done, principally in the forenoon, on a little
bloodmare, and with the exception of a little
stiffness, she seemed no worse." His rides to
London and back were no unusual achievement. Itwas the ordinary way of travelling to
the unencumbered roadster. A recent critic tells
us that a Yorkshire squire, within his own recollection, used toperform the two hundred and odd
miles on one marein an incredibly small number
of hours ; and most Yorkshire families of note
can tell ofsimilar achievements. As our recent
remarks on Mr. Curr's book elsewhere have anticipated the necessity of any formal review, we
will confine ourselves to the production of a few
of theauthor's opinions onhismain topic. Without comment, then, this is whathe says of the
animal We have just been discussing :
"He is absolutely a cross-bred animal,
a few exceptionalcases, where a sticket' racer
is draftedinto the hunting-stable, and hence, if
there is any meaning in the words pure blood,
and the stress laid on them by all writers, he
is necessarily and inevitably inferior. He is got
by the thoroughbred out of any mare, andis only
accidentally asaddle-horse, for as far as his blood
is concerned, he might have been hack,. hunter,
or charger, gigster, park-horse, or coacher ; or
have filled one of the other fifty refuges, which
are open to his reception. Though tallof stature,
and possessedof grace and beauty captivating to
the eye of many, he cannot deceive those who
havemuch general experience of horses, and indeedhe becomes distasteful to them. How long
letme ask, would ahorse of his appearance last
in war? How would he stand the bivouac1
How would he stand the wear and tear of light
cavalry practice before an enemy where forage
might be scarce or bad1 How would he suit a
bushman? How would cold, or thirst, or hunger
agree with this typeof animal ?"
An Englishman's qualifications tohe a judge
of horses he altogether denies. With the insularity so characteristic of him, he proves by
the example of" Stonehenge himself, that his
criticismis not entitled to a hearing on the other
side of the Mediterranean. "He has never been
in a position to compare his own with other
horses, and accordingly he does not know whata
really good horse can do or suffer, but is like a

The T. S. Moet, whose loss at sea we chronicled the other day, wasa vessel to which a strange
history is attached, as will be seen from the
following paragraph, taken from a Sydney
Herald of April last : Most of our mercantile
readers will remember the destruction by fire
of the fine ship Sovereign of the Seas, some
months back, as also the circumstances connected with the raising, and subsequent sale of
her hull, to Mr. Cuthbert, of Sydney. From the
hands of this gentleman, the hull afterwards
passed into the possessionof Capt. Rountree,of
Waterview Bay, who at once set about converting it again into sea worthiness. This object he
has most successfully accomplished, and under
the name of the T. S. Mort, the ruins of the
Sovereigu of the Seas now floats in the form of a
trim-looking auxiliary screw steamer. The whole
of the work incidental to this metamorphosishas
been carried out in Waterview Bay, even to the
fitting of the engines and screw propellers, the
latter being adjusted so as to bemovable at pleasure. This objectis securedby means of a powerfuliron framework on the stern, so that, in calm
weather, or entering, or leaving port, steam
power may be availed of. In a few days she
will depart for New Zealand under the command
of an experienced captain, her destination being

Language. We are told on good authority
by a country clergyman that some of the laborers
in his parish hadnot 800 wordsin their vocabulary. The vocabulary of the ancient sages of
Egypt at least so far as itis known to us from
the hieroglyphic inscriptions amounts to 685
words. The libretto of an Italian opera seldom
displays a greater variety of words. A well-educatedperson in England, who has been at a public
school and at the university, whoreads his Bible,
his Shakspeare, the Times, and all the books of
Mudie's library, seldom uses more than about
3000 or 4000 words in actual conversation. Accurate thinkers and close reasoncrs, who avoid
vague and genei'al expressions, and wait till they
find a wordthat exactly fits their meaning,employ
a larger stock ;and eloquent speakers may rise
to a command of 10,000. Shakspeare, who displayed a greater variety of expression than probably any writer in any language, produced all
his plays withabout 15,000 words. Milton's works
are builtup with 8000 ;and the Old Testament
says all that it has to say with 5642 words.
