Stickney, Sallie


A magnificent entertainment is announced to come off in this place on Saturday, June 30, containing a full and splendid collection of Wild Beasts, S.P. Stickney’s fine Troupe of Equestriennes, and the veritable GENERAL TOM THUMB, of Barnum and European renown. The General, we are happy to learn, although a few years older, is in excellent health, and his shadow no GREATER than it was fifteen years ago. Of the Circus with which he is connected we have heard the most favorable accounts. It is composed almost entirely of American Artistes, among whom mention is made of SALLIE STICKNEY, a young lady of the most brilliant talents in her line, and said to excel in her feats of equestrianism all the most popular demoiselles and signoras in the country.

GEN. TOM THUMB is to appear in all his famous performances, changes of character, &c., holding his Levee in the arena of the Circus.

In the forenoon the Company will enter town in grand procession, consisting of the travelling equipments of the Troupe, a cortege of Equestrians, gaily mounted and caparisoned.
