Another Theatrical Emeute. Cleve
land, of late, seems to be the favorite place
for enacting parts not put on the bills, by the
theatrical profession of teat place. Here is
a little affuir between two females of that
city, which came off last Thursday evening.-
We copy it from the Forest City:
Mrs. C. F. Adams, an actress, while eo-
ing through Centre street, met Mrs. Morris.
Hthe wife orTom Morris, of the Theatre, and
naseiy assaulted her, in a manner exceeded
only by the ferocity of a tigress. Then com
menced a scene, more easily imagined than
described both combatants being terribly
enraged, fought like wild cats, tearing each
other's pretty curls, blacking their love-lit
eyes, and scattering the laces and silks irf
generous profusion from one side of the street
to the other. But, like everything subluna
ry, the fight soon had an end Mrs. Adams'
orrying oil the laurels of victory, leaving
he conquered party on the field of yory.
How a Coat was Identified. In the Jus
tice's Court, in this city, a case was re
cently decided in the most novel way. A
coat was in dispute, and the evidence was
lirect and positive for both claimants: the1
parties w ero Irish, and "full of gift," ready
to spend all they had than "give up beat.''
Tho affair had been carefully examined, anrf
the court was "in a quandary," not knowing
who hud tho best claim to the o-arment.
However, a moment before his Honor was
to sum up the evidence, Patrick Powers, one
of the claimants, made the following proposi
tion for settling the affuir. Suid Patrick:
"Timothy Maguire, now ye say that coat
oolongs to ycrsell intirely ; 1 say it is me own.
Mow mind ye, Timothy, the both iv is wil?
take the coat an' look it all over; the man'
that finds his name on it shall be the own
er." "Done," suid Timothy;
"An'ye'll sticfc Ito the bargain!" asked
"To bo sure," said Patrick, as he passed
the coat into the hands of Timothy, who
vainly searchedevery part of it for his name,
and passed it back to Patrick boastingly say
ing, "And, now lit us see if ye can befindin'
the likes iv yer own name upon the gar-
able lands beyond Forts Kearney and Lar

A Curiosity. We yesterday saw in th

st part. It is cut from what bus been the
crotch of the tree, or the junction of sonu
ninin branch with a stem. Imbeded in this
knot, just us firmly as if it wero a portion oi
iho natural growth, is an old fashioned wolf
trap, ubout a foot of tho trap protruding. A
portion ol bono and hair were taken out, leav
ing a hole similar to thut when a fossil is
