Bayard Taylor hissed.

--During a lecture of Bayard Taylor, in Brooklyn, on Tuesday evening, he undertook to criticise the conduct of those who a few days ago prevented Geo. W. Curtis from delivering his abolition lecture in Philadelphia, and thus avoiding an anticipated mob. A scene of the utmost confusion followed these remarks of Mr. Taylor. A portion of the audience applauded while another portion hissed, and for about five minutes the noise was kept up, each party endeavoring to silence the other. The applauding party finally succumbed to their opponents, who kept up a loud hissing until the lecturer resumed his regular discourse.
