FURIOUS ATTACK ON MR. VAN ADIBURCK,

TIGERS. Shied Wednesday last, 'the prin

titled the "Lion conquerer'of Pompeii,' has
excited within these few days past so much
public attention. . Mr. Van Amburgh lies
beeir styled by the philolog6.sr 'of the above
equestrian establishment as the brute tamer,_
and certainly the appellation is well applied,
never was the courage or the presence of i
mindtof than put - to a. severer test. From 1
the information, obtained by our reporter,
.yekerday, from an authentic source It ap 7 *
pears that On Wednesday last a rehearsal
was going on in circus of the theatre,
when Mr,,: Van Ainburgh, wishing one of
his tigers to perform a certain feat which the
animal-was uterly unable _or unwilling to
accomplish, had recourse to severe, doporeal
punishment, whipli'clieStisementlie itiflict

-censed, ll ---and-suddenly-sprang-Aion—Mr,-
Van Amburgh,• who instantly .was hurled
with-violence to 'the ' ground, `from -- the
_strength_ and weight of his incensed assail
ant. Mr. Van Amburgh, whO is of ller
culean cast, and•possessing extraordinary .
muscular power, instantly perceived the in-.
-tendon. of -the -animal i - -which-was-that-- of
tearing hiM to pieces, and with the courage
and presence of mind, which few rnen . p,m,
sess, seized his foe by the lip of the lower
jaw, andthus pinioned hith as a bull dog
would an ox at a bait.. ' A long and fearful
struggle now ensued, in the- corirse of 1

suffering fro* the punishment he had re
ceived. It may here be proper to mention
ifie.performers (so we understood,) did not
pay any attention to the struggle, consider
' ing that it was merely a rehearsal of the part
to be played in the evening,'untilthey saw
him 'administering the severe chastisement
