Harry J. Norton, : : Associate Editor. TUESDAY.MAY 11, 1875. Circus—The Jackley’s.—News papers generally say so many good things about the worth of a circus before its exhibition that, be it good or bad, they have left little room for criticism afterward. This is usually because circus inen are very liberal patrons of the press, and it is “busi ness’’ with the proprietor to give them a favorable introduction. Wo are pleased to say we have nothing to retract from our former notice given ot Jackley’s Vienna Circus, which performed here on.Sunday bight, though in some of its features it did not quite come up to our ex pectations. Due allowance must bo Inade for the short time afforded in putting up the tent and fixing the ring, as well as the extremoly hard and uneven ground upon which they had to perform. Notwithstanding the very short and insufficient no tice, the lack of any music or street procession, and the threatening character of the weatiicr, a large audience were seated on the benches long before the preparations were completed. The assemblage is vari ously estimated at from 800 to 900, which is good for this place under the untoward circumstances. Wo Tiave little room to particularize each attraction, and can but briefly notice the main features. The grand entree, by seventeen superbly jnounted riders, and the military evolutions performed, were the best wo have seen under a circus tent, and was loudly applauded. The magnificent and costly stud of thoroughbred horses so perfectly trained, ami so attractlively exhibited by Omar Kingsley, from a collection that ono does not see together more than once in a life time, was much admired by the horse-fanciers present. The bareback riding ot George Shields comprised many grace!ul and daring feats, and compares very favorably with the skill ot Kobinson and Fish, though not fully equal to either of those trick equestrians, Mr. Shields labored under the difficulty of the worst kind of a ring, rough, of very uneven grade, and as iiard as a pave ment. lie would doubtless do much better under more favorable circum stances. Herbert is a pretty but not daring rider, while Master Cooke haudlus two horses over the bars in [ a manner that does infinite credit to his youth. He has the right kind of stuff for the arena. Of the lady riders, we can say nothing oompli. iiicutary, as M’lle Linda did not ap pear and Mine Leon only passably managed the beautiful and intelli gent Abdel Kader. Chas. Drayton, the cannon ball performer, is a very giant in strength, does everything | with ease and grace, and acquitted ; himsell well, 'the clowns, in which • is naturally expectrd of tlie circus clown—wit, absurdity, and tlie : amusement of children—were just tolerable. The main and most at- , tractive feature of the entertainment, 1 is tho wonderful and incomparable | .lackloy family, eleven in number. I Their numerous feats, from tirst to [ last, is a succession ot the most j graceful, difficult and astonishing ] performances ever witnessed, and it would be no loss than a detraction i from their merit to even compare | .them with any others in the same Jine of acting. Without any at tempt to do them more than justice, we do not hesitate to say they stand at the very head and front ot living acrobats. They performed every thing they advertised, and their many and classic groupings, as well as the daring double back somer saults, single back somersaults from a platform SO feet high, teats of strength and contortion, were a con tinuous wonder, and ealled forth the most enthusiastio applause. Jio one saw them who did not feel that their performances were alone worth the price of admission. Taking the cir cus as a whole, it is well deserving of patronage. Skiuous Accident.—Richard Nagle, a work man at the Florida mine and resident in Gold Hill met with a fearful accident on Saturday afternoon, while running the donkey engine which does the hoisting. The engine had stopped on the centre, Mr. N. threw open the throttle, and was helping the fly wheel over, and when it started his foot was caught in it and cut in a frightful manner. The wound is live inches long and the arteries, ligaments and muscles completely severed and the bones torn apart. Medical skill was prompt and efficient, and the unfortunate man was doing well last evening. _ It tried very hard to rain on Suuday eve ning, but was prevented by a little urchin who looking up at threatening clouds, petulantly exclaimed—“Yes, goll durn ye! yet goin* ter rain, jes cause it's circus night, ain’t yor!“ We give up a good share of our news col umns to new advertisements this morning, but will make up the discrepancy, and more too, when our new stock of paper comes for the enlargement of the Timxh, which will be iu a few days. Messrs. John Hereford and G. Haist were ^ brown from their buggy by a runaway horse y eater day. They fortunately escaped serious injuries, but “Johnny came marching boms” with a badly ruptured toilet, from hanging to the lines._ Peace hath her victories no less renowned than ijar. A juvenile Injun yesterday allured IS graybacks from his little brother’s head and matehed them on the sidewalk in a foot race. _ The Virginia Chronicle snatches the truth bald-headed by (mis)stating that a quarts team ran away on the Silver City Plaxa Sunday evening.

Singular Accident—A Quartz Wagon on the Rampage.—One of the most novel accidents of which wc remember ever to have heard, occurred on the Plaza, in this city, at about 12 o’clock on Sunday night. A number of quartz 'wag ons are usually idle on the Plaza, and secured from rolling off down hill by having the brakes set or being “ chocked” with rocks. The wind was blowing quite a breeze at about midnight, and from this or some other cause, the brake on one of Waddell’s sixty-hundred wagons became loosened, and it started off across the square. Gaining velocity every foot, and steered by its own eccentric inclination, it described a half oircle from the north to the west, and finally dashed furiously down the grade, and with a ternen dous crash, through the fence and right into the frame residence of Mrs. Hill, a widow lady living on the west side of the Plaza. The old monster mowed down the fenoe and awning poets as if they were but pipe-stems, and striking be tween the window and door casing, forced an entrance into the house. Mrs. Hill and her children were sleeping in separate apartments at the time, and as the wagon struck, the terror it created can better be imagined than described. Whether it was the shock of a terrible earth quake, the eruption of a volcano, or the grand winding up of all things mundane, the frightened lady could not for a moment divine, but on flying to the rescue of her children, the gable end of that wagon protruding its unwel come presence into the parlor, told her the full extent of the danger. The wagon was suffered to remain in position until morning, when it was returned to its proper moor ings. Although considerably frightened, Mrs. Hill nor her chil dren sustained no personal injury, but it will give a #75 job to the carpenter. We are not prepared to say what a flock of these old quartz wagons might take into their (they’ve got tongues and must have) heads to do some windy night, and as we live on the down hill side, we suggest that their owners make a sure thing of secur ing them hereafter.
