An nder-groom named imith wasliterally thr iled'to death by one of the ions which play so prominent a part in the holiday entertainments at this place of amusement. The ions, three in number, are confined in a cage at the *ack of the stage. When the night watchman left the theatre in the morning a few minutes before 7 ie.reported *"all right." Shcrtlyafterwards Smith, he beceaseil, entered.the llaoe and found the lions prowling about. They had tomn off a heavy iron bar which crossed the front of their cage, and then mrst open the door.

Mr. Ditmas was thrown with sach fearful violence that he never spoke again. He was brought into the house at Waterloo, where he lay for about two days in a state of insensibility before his death took place. Dr. Daigan arrived Soni after the accident, but gave no hopes from the first. Mr. Ditmas was buried at Clarevanulx on Tuesday, when his funeral was'attended by all the respectable people in the quarter who could possibly get word of nhe sad event. ...
