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.
