he Marvelous Intelligence JDisplayed by the Horses in Barnuin's Great Show. Barnum's " Greatest Show on Earth " is steadily tracting thousands of visitors everywhere, and e learn from our exchanges that it well deserves ie immense patronage it receives. One of the freat features of the show is the ïarge number Of ïorses. Independent of the trick ponies, the horses used r bareback riding and the grand cavalcade, the xhibitiou comprises a stud of twenty horses (six acks, four grays, three bays, and seven brown), hose beauty, synimetry, intelligence and docility ould be nextto impossible to duplícate in so many des. They are all under the charge of Prof. Cari ntony, of Hungary, a young gentleman of only venty-five yeara oí' age, who has been closely conected with horses from his aeventh year, and coni)ines all the qualities neecssary to his calling. He is young, handsonie, exceedingly polite, and thorough iuaster of lus profession. In the sade he possesses a graceiul, fiim and centaur-like arriage, and shows nlainly tlie iuheritance of the ding knack, his fftther being one of the best lorsemen and trainers of Europe, and at present ith Myere, of Paris. Monsieur Antonio, as he is most generally called, ïas, in au almost incredible space of time, taught lis beautiful animáis to perform some most wonerful feats, though,- impossible as it may seem,- ie bas had them only about six montbs. These allions were purchased in Europe at a very large rice. They are as pretty as pictures, show great breedng, and in their exercise seem to spurn the g-round xey tread upon. They are all above the ordinary andard of ñfteen hands in height, their limba are ean and supple, their necks and heads perfectly att, and their ricb black coats shine with sumcient uster to reflect the thousands of admiring eyes ïat gaze upon them. The Russian stallions, four in number, are all rays, and though Iarger and a trifle coarser than ie blacks, are exceedingly beautiful and very inelligent, their performances daily and nightly ïrilling the vast audience with admiration and elight. MameluKe and Paeha, together with a brown, are rom the royal stables of Hungary, and are marvels ' beauty, spirit, docility, and intelligence. They re the ones first introduced to the audience by onsieur Antonio, who displays their capabilities ii innumerable ways, eliciiing well-merited apause from the thousands present. The horse formerly owned and ridden by Victor ummanuel, the late King of Italy, is aiso included u the stud. He is a bright bay, with a white snip n the nose, about nfteen and a lialf hands high, nd strottg and compactly built. A dajijíle-gray lorse, the only gelding in the lot, is very beautiful i appearance, child-liko in docility, and jumpa ith the agillty of a gazelle. In the rather conracted arena are placed three hurdles about four eet high, and against them - broadside - are stood wo stallions. These the gray jumps with extraorinary agility and ease, as hIso an iniitation fence all about five feet high. One of the gray stallions Ís ridden by M, Antonio, made to kneel down, dance a walt, and a galop, nd to go through numerous and intricate steps ith grane and precisión. Taken altogcther, the chibltion ÍS one of the most marvelous displays f the powers of the human miad over the brute reatioQ that we have ever heard of, and will repay visit. liarnum's Menagerie and Museum are more atactive and varied this year than ever, while his reus is said to surpass any in the world.
