There are undoubtedly a largo number of ladles
who would like to attend if they could do

rently for tbo sole purpoee of staring ladles out
of countenance. There are few women who
bare th courage to lace their rude

should regulate this matter. If Richards, the
Chief or Police, hasth time and courage to at
tend to it, four or five police ofnoois might be
stationed in front of too theatre, and ladles
could attend tb matinee performance in safety,

two o'clock P. M. till eight o'clock P. M.,on

while, been felt among the stulenti of this city,
who would gludtyavaifihemietves of the Llbrarv,
