mi'lS " STAItRINO."
A frigLtful iicene occurred lately at the
: theatre at Cieroy io liohemia, during the
rerformauce of a melo-drama called the
Bear of the Mountain, the principal actor of
which waa a Bruin of such wonderful docil
ity and dramatic talent that for a long fuc
cei.ion of nigliU be attracted OTerflowing
audiencea. On thip occasion, however, aorue-
; thing had put this ''star" out of humor,
and he was observed to be wanting in those
brilliant diaplaya of the histrionic which
bad pretiously overwhelmed him with ap
plause. Iu the third act, instead of corning
down the mountain by a winding path, with
the slow and solemn step prescribed io the
prompter ' book, he alighted on the stage at
one bound, like the descent of an ferolile.
On bi return behind the acenes he received
reproof, winch instead of improving, made
bia temper more sullen, and it ttt with dif
ficulty he could he prevailed upon to go
tHrouh his pait.
I In the last scene he waa induced to com
mence a waltz with a young and beautiful
peasant girl, ai d seemed to take so much
eujoyncut in the dance, that the whole au
dience gradually rose in their seat?, and
standing on the benches, drowned the sound
nf a powerful orchestra with their acclama
tions of wonder and delight. Id a moment,
however, the joyous jipectacle was changed
into a scene of terror. A peircing hriek
was beard through all the tumult, and the
lovely dancer was hurled round with the
velocity of a swift wheel, and discharged
from her partner's arms bead-foretuest into
the pit, where, howev, r, sho was caught by
the audience without damage.
The neit momotit the stage lover of the
jieasent girl, who bad been coquetting io a
dance in the d stance with a group of ballet
dancers, advanced, in the performance of
hit) part, to waltt with the bear. The for
; mer catastrophe had been so rapid, that
though bis danger was fully perceived by
the audience, whose cries were quite loud
enough to deter him, it was evidently un
perceived by the lover. The bear was in
stantly on the qui five, measuring him from
top to toe, and, flinging his legs around
him, began to walti with such extraordina
ry boundings, that the astonished lover was
soon whirled off his feet, and in another mo
ment was at the top of a stage precipice,
and tossed into the surges below. The as
toninhmeut now, however, had turned into
consternation. The bear was seen dancing
forward, evidently pleased with bis own ex
ploits, and with his muzzle broken, the
noose hanging loose around his neck, and
I be whole audience now started on their
feet, rolling over each other, and iu the at
tempt to escape, choked up the doors of the
pit, boxes, and gallery. The town police
were now called in, formed a circle, and
charged the bear with fixed bayonets. Fi
ring was out of the question, as the bullets
which missed the bear must take effect on
the audience ; but the bear, though left
alone, exhibited the adroitness of education,
and the intrepidity of his nature. A part
of bis training had been the platoon exer
cise, and suddenly knocking down a corpo
ral of the guard with one paw, and .aiding
his musket with the other, he threw his
cross-bultjover his back, and proceeded de
liberately to prime and load. The terror
of th audience was now extreme, and
nhrieka were heard from all aides, as he
pointed the muzzle towards the crowded pit.
The guard, which hud regarded it as a
remarkable effort of city valor to have ap
proached him at all, now widened their cir
cle iu all directions, to a respectable dis
tance from an antagonist armed alike with
the ferocity of Ravage nature, and the wea
pons of civilization. But the bear, already
long accustomed to military manuuvres, and
who had exhibited lately t St. Betersburg,
in the pantomime of the battle of Pultowa,
palpably took the Swedish captives, and
picked out each of them from his hiding
place by a tender touch at the point of the
bayonet. In H their fright the audience
roared with laughter ; it was evident that
his pantouiimicsl recollection were ttill
strong upon him, for he compelled every
man of his captives to kneel down upon the
stage, atrip off hit accoutrements, and beg
for his life.
A flourish of trumpets should have fol

ter i0 Bpeaktng Of tb age at Which a WO-
I man becomes old, says: "I hare questioned
many women, old and young, upon this sub-
ject and I have arrived at 'the conviction
that they know no more than I do. Listen
to a woman of the age of twenty talking
-about old woai.n She does not sneak of
' them as a traveller wlo is about to start on
a long journey speaks of those who have ar
rived at the end of it; she does not speak
of them as if they were human beings to
whom she must bear some sort of resem
blance herself. No, il would seem that they
were two species of women perfectly distinct,
like the white women and the black women,
aud that tbe woman of the age of twenty,
who is speaking to you, belongs to the young
species in the samo way that she belongs to
the white species. Nothing is more common
than to hear a woman, wbo is no longer
young, say, with the greatest contempt, of a
woman of hor own age, " She's an old wo
man ! " A woman of the age of twenty calls
all the women who are of the age of thirty
old ; and a imsn of thirty is scandalized
to see a drawing-room crowded with noth
ing but wemen of forty, whilst the latter
says : " When I shall become fifty, like Mrs.
So-and-so, I shall give up going into society,
and certainly shall not wear flowers in my
hair.'' The women cf fifty, in their turn,
chatter freely about the giddiness and im
prudence of women who only number a few
less than themselves."

Such was the description of the cancer re-

It was situated at or near the corner of

Chitty, Esq., a candidate for Clerk of the

Mrs. Chitty is now willing to give a cer

suffered very much in mind and bodily
pain, from that cancer, and that its inroads
made upon her eye, for a long time, were
most alarming aud distressing, and that very
soon after tbe application of the remedy (by
Rev. Dr. N. Davis,) by whom this miraculous
: cura was effected, she felt as though its vie-
