April 9- w&s2\v
Copied from a London paper »f the %th of
Monday night the Royal family went to
the little Hay Market Theatre for the firft
time this season. A most afflicting scene oc
curred at the opening of the doors. The
expectation of their Majesties' presence drew
the atfual crowd, and on opening the doors,
the torrent broke in with impetueffity. At
the ejitry of the theatre there is an ill con
trived delcendmg fta'ir, to the pitt; on. which
some of the foremoft of the multitude loft
their feet and fell; the crowd prefled over
them with that thoughtleTs fury. which 'in
such a moment no companion can touch, ri6
eloquence foften. Out readers will hear it
with horror! in shis way, seventeen human
beings ZLx'rr troddeti ■to death !ex el "olive of
thoie, who being recovered from the effeil*
of fuffocation, are scarcely expected to sur
vive the bruises which they ftfftained tinder
■ *he preflure of the eagsr, unthinking crowd,
whose sympathy was extinguished in their
curiolity. The .ronfufipn lasted for h,alf 29
hour, and for all that time no possible aid
could be given to the victims. As soon as
possible the bodies were carried to the ad
joining houses j seven of tfiern to Mr. Win
ches* the druggist, two or three of them to
Meflrs. Longman and Broderip's, and thfe
Tell to other houses in the neighbourhood,
where all the means recommended by the
Humane Society were tried to restore anima
tion in vain. But one person out of all the
vidtims were recovered. Several of them
were immediately recognized as hsving lived
in the neighbourhood, and nine were taken
to St. Martin's work house, where four of
them were owned ; five still remain there
whole names are unknown.
The accident did not interrupt the per
formance ; the hoilfe was quite crowded with
the Beau Mon ,'e, and the pieces went off
with great laughte; and apphirfe. It was
ftid the (hocking event was not made.known
to their Majesties till next rttorning.
The following is a lift of the dead, as ac
curate as we can at present produce :
Mr. and Mrs. Braddfn, of Size-lane.
