A SHAKESPEARIAN RAT. Last week, as Othello was being performed at. the Theatre Royal, Greenock, a large grey-haired rat ap- peared upon the stage, having emerged from one of the side-wings, and approached the footlights. The presence of the brute proved too much for the nerves both of "Desdemona (Miss Eliza Faucit Saville) and Emilia," who uttered a faint scream. Iago," with his arms akimbo, looked upon the rat with a sardonic frown, well befitting the character, but he did not draw his sword and execute summary vengeance upon it, as "Hamlet" is supposed to do when he finds" Polonius" concealed in his mother's antechamber, .and exclaims, How now, a rat! Dead for a ducat, dead Cross- ing the stage, and being apparently dazzled with the light, the animal ran tilt against the wing, which caused it to divert from its purpose, and approach the orchestra. The presence of the manipulator on the bass fiddle, however, compelled the intruder to turn again and escape by the wing. The audience enjoyed a hearty laugh at the incident, and the play was thereafter proceeded with.
