An Enraged Actress.
--Stanwix Hall, Albany
, was the scene of what might have proved a tragedy a few days since.
Miss Henrietta Irving
--one of the Irving sisters — was the heroine of the affair.
She entered the room of J. W. Booth
, who was stopping at the Stanwix, and attacked him with a dirk, cutting his face badly.
She did not however, succeed in inflicting a mortal wound.
Failing in this, she retired to her own room and stabbed herself.
Again she failed in her destructive purpose.
What promised to be a real tragedy in the outset was, after all, but a farce.
The cause of this singular proceeding was attributed to jealousy or misunderstanding.
