The Great Eastern Railway CompaDy print all their own tickets at Stratford. They have several machines constantly at work, which print on the average 1,000 tickets an hour. The London'correspondent of the ' Liverpool Post' hears a story about one hereditary pension which is very instructive, and will probably be communicated to the House of Commons whenever opportunity arises. Among the list of pensions is a small one standing to the credit of a Scottish peer for the fulfilment of a sinecure office. A member of the .House of Commons, bantering the noble lord on this source of revenue, learned the startling fact that for two generations not a penny had gone into the family coffers. His grandfather, being in need of ready money, sold the pension to a Portsmouth Jew, whose heirs and assigns draw it to this day. Princess Eugenio Esterhazy is dead at Vienna. She was Bister to Archduchess Isabella, and a leading beauty. It is stated that she died of grief for the late Crown Prince Rudolph.
