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 . which both the' man and the- tiger rolled oyer.several times,.

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 as .before described to the enraged animal, and kts efforts to compel Mr. Van Amburgh to release' his hold.
