A WOKDEfiFUL HOUSE. Signor Gorradini, the celebrated Jta/lian horse-traiiier, has .'on many occasions pro duced wonderfnl proofs of the intelligence aud -docility' of the liorse, but .the feats of the •" Biondin"' horse far surpass anything that has yet been accomplished. Nearly every horse-trainer of note has expended much time and patience in endeavouring to educate a horse to walk a rope of enormous width only a foot or two from the ground, and much has been said in the perseverance of those who have succeeded in attaining this feat ■; bub Siguor Gorradini is the first who had the skill to train a horse to walk up' a steep flight of stairs, and across a: real rope only nine inches thick, at the elevation of twenty feet. A net of sufficient strength is placed beneath the performer in case of .ac cident, but so perfect is the training of this sagacious creature, that when he has the misfortune to miss his footing and fall into the net spread for his reception, lie walks out of it l...

PAYMENT OF MEMBERS, It is a sign of the better times towards which the people of England are hastening, when a prominent member of the Imperial Government, a man who is being closely watched by millions of'eyes as a probable Premier of the future, boldly declares his belief that every extention of the franchise is an additional argument for payment of members. Speaking before thousands of his constituents in Birmingham, on January 29, Mr. Chamberlain is reported by the Times to have spoken as follows :— "" I will undertake to say that in the great majority of the new constituencies the work ing classes themselves will be in a majority, and they will have the power to return one of their own order, if they find a fitting candidate. (Cheers.) But the real diffi culty is iu this—that yon. ,can not find sub sistence for men ;of the working classes if they are summoned to Westminster, and the only wa}' to. overcome the difficulty is to adopt the old constitutional system of pay ment' of ...
