EDWIN FORREST AND WHITE CLOUD. Many years ago, while Edwin Forrest was playing an engagement in a Western theatre, White Cloud and a number of other Indian chiefs were on their return from 1Vashington. Stopping in the town over night, they were conducted to the theatre to see the great American tragedian. elr. Forrest was then in the prime ol life, his voice being up to the maimum ofa stentor. The play on that even ing was "Itetamora," which is now in the possession of John M'Cullough. White Cloud and his band of warriors were accommodated with seats in a stage box. The theatre was crowded, and it was very evident that the auditors were anxious to observe what effect the performance would have on the sinmon-pure children of the forest. The play proceeded, and although thle Indians could not understandt a single word that was said, yet they appeared to be much interested, occasionally giving one another a satisfactory grunt.
