Miscellanies of the Month. ATTEMPTED Assassination of Louis Philip.—Mademoiselle Adèle Boury, aged nineteen, daughter of the Postmaster of Bergues, in the Department du Nord, was on the descent of the Pont Royal when the cortège passed. She placed herself in front, on the edge of the causeway. Two ladies stood near. When the shouts of “ l'ive le Roi !” and “A bas les chapeaux !” announced the arrival of the King, a young man violently pushed back Mlle. de Boury, and placed bimself before her. The young lady remonstrated against his rudeness; but he made no reply, being intent upon his criminal design. As Mlle. Boury could not resist, she remained behind him, stood on tiptoe, and leaned on his shoulder to see the procession pass. The individual then raised his left arm, and drew from his pocket a small pistol. By this movement he struck the young lady's chin. He had apparently his finger on the trigger, and was taking his aim, when Mlle. Boury perceived the end of the barrel. She instantly seized the man's arm with both her hands, pulled him back towards her, and the pistol went off. The young lady still held his arm with so much force, that she tore his coat; but she was obliged to quit her hold, as another individual, who stood behind her, pushed her rudely off the causeway, and she fell on the ground. On seeing the assassin escape in the direction of the Tuileries, she exclaimed, “ Arrêtez, arrêtez!” She rose up with some difficulty, and went and leaned against the parapet of the bridge. Some persons among the crowd said to the Generals who were approaching, " That is the lady!” On being surrounded, she fainted, and was taken up by one of the carriages of the corrège. When she had somewhat recovered, she named M. Thiers, the minister. She was immediately conveyed to his house; and there, on recovering her senses, gave her name and residence. She was afterwards taken to the Procureur du Roi, to give her testimony, and from thence to the palace of the Tuileries. She entered the royal apartments led by two persons, amidst shouts of “Bravo!” from the Generals, Deputies, Peers of France, and others who were present. The Queen, affected to tears, threw herself round her neck, exclaiming, “ Is it you, then, my dear, who saved the life of my husband!” The shouts of “Bravo!” the place of the scene, the enthusiasm expressed by every one, made such an impression on Mlle. Boury, that she went into fits, which she had never experienced before. Immediate assistance was afforded her. The Procureur du Roi then offered to accompany her to her hotel, where she arrived in an agitated state at half-past six o'clock in the evening. The sight of persons of her acquaintance soon calmed her mind, and she is at this moment much better — Constitutionel.
PHENOMENON.—The Brighton Herald gives the following account of an extraordinary phenomenon which was visible from Brighton on Monday night last:—“ Thousands of falling stars and meteors were seen from midnight until half-past two o'clock on Tuesday morning. I counted 173, and they then appeared so rapidly that I gave up my calculation. Of these 173, 37 were of considerable magnitude; and many of them were accompanied by sounds like the rattling of a carriage, and others like the rushing into the air of a skyrocket. One in particular, which passed N. W. to S. W., was attended with a noise greater than that of the great meteor of the 18th August, 1783, which must still be remembered by many persons. This meteor lasted upwards of six minutes, during which period it assumed various forms. It was first like a ball of fire, afterwards it became blue, then it descended like the nucleus of a comet, and disappeared in a cloud of fiery sparks. It is remarkable that the same appearances should have happened on the 12th November in 1783. The same appearances were visible at Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight.
