The country gentlemen are dreadfully concerned about the exportation of

horses. Mr. Lowther on Wednesday complained that about 1,000 horses were exported a day, and on Friday Sir Harry Verney again brought up the subject. It appears, however, from Mr. Gladstone's reply, as given in the Globe in a necessarily con- densed report, that the export since July 1 has been about 1,300 horses, that there are some 3,000,000 horses in the United King- dom, and that there is no need for any State interference whatever.
