LATEST FROM EUROPE(Renter's.) Calcutta, Dec. 15. It is believed the British are in position at Sharpar, in strong and well fortified cantonments outside Cabul, and the lines near Cabul are in possession of the British troops. The British entrenchments have been strengthened, with ample supplies of material. There is every reason to believe the position is tenable pending the arrival of reinforcements. Gough’s advance has been stopped by hostile tribes. Reinforcements will be sent from Ptshawur, where reserves forces are forming.
