Frightened by a Performing Bear

On Tuesday last, a horse belonging to Mr Thompson, carriage proprietor, took fright at a performing bear in the Lumley Road and started off in a rapid rate.
The landau to which the animal was attached came in contact with the public convenience and was greatly damaged.
Several other animals also took fright at the bear performing on the streets.
