PROFESSOR HERMANN'S ENTERTAINMENT. - Professor Hermann performed before a tolerably large company on Monday [19th]. During the evening, however, a slight accident occurred to him by a piece of wadding, which was fired from a gun, his object being to catch the bullet between his teeth, striking him on the forehead. The tickets of admission were at once returned to the audience, and the performances were postponed till Tuesday evening. On that occasion the room was very well filled, and the Professor, who had quite recovered from his mishap, appeared, and went through some entirely new and clever tricks, to the evident satisfaction of the company.
