performing at Exeter in Richard UI, a favor
ite Newfoundland dog which he had left in hit

wing just as "Riohard" and "Richmond" were
on the point of engaging in the last scene.
Lion growled at his master's antagonist, ex
hibited hit teeth and ruined forward; where
upon the terrified "Riohmond," deeming the
odds too serious, fled, and wat seen no
more. Kean being left without an antago
nist, was obliged to fall and die unwounded.
Lion began licking his matter's face, and the
curtain fell amid a roar of laughter. In re
sponse to the calls of the audience "Richard"'
appeared, but Lion positively deolined to
make any further bow-wow.
Christian Qvarrrls in tub Holy Lak.
Another Christian qaarrti has occurred at
Jerusalem. A little piece of the marble pave
ment of the Church of the Nativity had been
broken off and taken away. The question wat
whether the Latin or the Greek worthipptrt
should repair the loss, and both got their bit
of marble ready and began to quarrel about
the mending. The Latins, with the aid and
asalstance of the French Consul and the Mus
sulman authority, managed to mend the pave
ment first; then came the Greeks, who undid
the work and wanted to mend it for them
selves. Violence would have succeeded on
both sides, but the advice was at last retorted
to of getting the Turkt to make the necessary
repairs. So this waa done, and the believers
were restored to peace by the happy interven
tion of tbe infidels. ' ; -
