STRANGE SCENE IN A THEATRE. A curious scene occurred the other night at the Chatelet, Paris. A gentleman named Serviere was amongst the audience, and supposed to occupy box No. 18. About nine o'clock a messenger arrived at the stage entrance and informed the controller-in. chief that he had been sent to apprize M. Serviere, who he said would be found in the part of the theatre just mentioned, that his house was on fire, and that his attendance was required immediately. No snob person, however, was to be found in box 18, and the Rtage authorities determined to announce the fact of the fire publicly from the stage, and called out M. Ser- viere by name, adding that he was requested to hurry home. At this announcement the audience burst out laughing, and M. Serviere himself, who was in the slips, joined in the hilarity, regarding the intelligence merely as a practical joke, played upon him by some friend who knew he was at the theatre. In the mean- time the actor who made known the news, observing that the audience regarded the matter in the same light as the person immediately concerned, assured them in the most solemn manner that there was really nothing to laugh at, that the affair was very serious, and the gentleman's house was actually on fire. Upon this the risible faculties of the spectators were again strongly excited. After this interruption the performance proceeded. The gentleman in question, on returning home at midnight, found to his regret that there was no blague in the earnest ansu- ranees and repeated calls for him, which had excited so much merriment, his house being then in flames in every part.
