LATE CABLEGRAMS. (Per City of Sydney at Auckland), London, July 30. A great shock was caused by the news of the defeat of General Burrows’ Brigade, communicated by the Marquis of Hartington to the House of Commons on July 28th. Government immediately took most energetic measures to despatch reinforcements. The Oronton left on the 30th August, and the Euphrates, Malabar, and Himalaya leave about August 12. Each takes a battalion and a-half of troops from England. The corps are— The first battalion 23rd foot and 77th regiment of foot ; first battalion Rifle Brigade, from Gibraltar; and second battalion 24th, from Malta ; also, Gist and 98th regiments. u The reinforcements amount to 5,478 men. The English journals and all parties unite in recommending the most vigorous action, in order to're-establish the British prestige. The Liberals regard the present difficulty as a natural heritage from the position taken up by the Boaconsfield Government in Afghanistan, while the Conservatives retoro that the disaster proceeds from the weak policy inaugurated by the present Government. Foreign papers comment at considerable length on the disaster, and the news created an immense sensation in Paris. Many French papers blame the policy of the Liberal Government. The National# observes that Mi’. Gladstone advanced somewhat rashly in several cases, and this is the only case in which he has receded. He is now bound to take the offensive again. The Pays says that the Premier proved himself absolutely wrong in all his provisions and calculations, while the Journal des Debats pointed out that the English Cabinet must now feel convinced something far different from purely naval assistance will have to be given to the Ameer of their choice. The Nationale Zeitung, of Berlin, attributes the repetition of such disasters to the vacillating policy of the British Government, and to the faulty strategy of the British military commander. The reply of the Porte to the collective note of the Great Powers on the Greek question is that Turkey objects to the eession of Laraska for stragetic reasons, 1 and on the ground of nationality.

The Golos and other Russian Government organs are commenting on the attitude of the leading French papers regarding the proposed coercive measures towards Turitey, and reproduce moat significant paragraphs from French articles to show that the French Cabinet and the nation are not willing to join in any real action against the Turkish Empire.

Gazette approves of the attitude of the French, and says that France is not the only power which deprecates a rash solution of the Eastern question, and that no reason exists why allairs should not soon take a decided turn. Vesuvius is in active eruption. An earthquake occurred at Smyrna and neighborhood, causing the loss of several lives and throwing down many houses, London, Sept. 3. News from the Cape is unsatisfactory. The Basutos are not submitting quietly to' British authority, and decline to disarm. The Porto has issued orders for the Turkish squadron in the Levant to reinforce. The fanatical party who influence the Sultan urge him to proceed to extremes in defence of the independence of Turkey. The Italian budget shows a great increase on the estimates for military service.' ' Government asks an additional L 2,000,000 to render the army effective. Sept. 14. Ayoub’s flight from the field of battle was so precipitate that the whole camp and equipage fell into the hands of the victors. The spoils are immense. In consequence of the strategy of General Roberts, a large portion of the Afghan army was covered by the British artillery. Ayoub’s troops surrendered in thousands. Ten thousand Afghans were captured. The total collapse of Ayoub’s force was due to the want of cohesion between the soldiers from Herat and the mutinous regiments from Oabul. The Cabulese fled down the Argandak Valley, and the Heratees were drawn off towards the Helmund River. The cavalry started in hot pursuit, and killed 500 fugitives, who refused to surrender. General Roberts brought his whole force up to the attack, leaving only the garrison in Candahar, which was aided by friendly Afghans under the Wall of Candahar. The total loss, including killed, wounded, and missing, on the British side amounts to upwards of 1,000. Of these, only 90 were Europeans. Colonel McLean, who has been in the hands of the Afghans since the defeat of General Burrows, and up to a recent date was well treated by them, was murdered before the battle. The deceased officer was a general favorite in the army, and his sad fate was universally regretted. , London, Sept. 8. The match between the Australians and an Eleven of All England was witnessed by 30,000 people. Spoflbrth did not play, in consequence of having one finger broken in the match against Eighteen of Scarborough. Sept. 9. The match was resumed, but owing to rain over night the wicket was dead. The remaining English were soon disposed of, the innings terminating for a total of 420. Calcutta, Sept. 7Since the decisive victory by the British over Ayoub Khan the native population are far less troublesome, and quiet seems to be restored. The road from Quettah to Candahar has been' reopened, and the interruption of communication with the city has been removed. London, Sept. 7. Cavalry patrols report the villages near Candahar full of Afghan dead and wounded. It is stated the British cavalry commence their return to India in a fortnight. The Times in an article referring to the Prince of Wales having abandoned his intention of visiting Australia for the present, says the Melbourne Exhibition will likely bo interesting and instructive, but would bo more successful if the Victorian Government abandon its prejudices, and allow the exhibits to be sold duty free.
