From the K Y. Tribune.
The plan of raising the wind by stopping
one's own Las ceased to be merely a ghastly
joke. A desperate gamester is said to have
sold his head to an anatomist for money
enough to ploy a final stake, and, after losing,
was judged, by a jury of honor among his
friends to have committed a gross violation
of all the conveyance by blowing a hole
through a piece of propeity to which he had
no lorger any claim. The suicides of the
present day exhibit equal deliberation and an
equally confused perception of legal and
moral obligation. Several men of late have
taken the" last relics of thoir scanty fortunes
and effected an insurance upon their lives,
and then have killed themselves for the
benefit of their families. " In all cases so far
the courts have held the companies liable for
the amount of the insurance, regarding suicide
as an accident of insanity, and one among
the accidents against which this provident
measure is designed to guard. If, however,
these affairs exhibit a tendency to reproduce
themselves too frequently, it may well be
seriously considered whether some legisla
tion is not necessary to restrict the responsi
bility of the companies, so that an institution
so useful and so beneficial shall not become
an encouragement to self-slaughter.
One of the most singular cases of this kind
bas recently occurred in Memphis. A Hebrew
named Spears, a small shopkeeper, who had,
by the close and sagacious application for
which his race is remarkable, accumulated a
little property worth some $5000, in an unfor
tunate hour was induced to gamble for a
small amount,' which he lost. Not being able
to endure the thought of losing money without
an equivalent, he wont on for some months
with the fatal idea that luck would turjQ and
f course lost all he was worth. He took the
precaution to insure his life for .j000 for the
benefit of his wife, and then went through to
the end of his means. On the last day of his
life he asked his wife for some money. After
remonstrating with him for his course of life
she gave him five dollars, with which he
trudged away to the den where his happiness
bad been squandered, and played for some
time with unusual success; but at last the coil
was tightened upon him, and he was penni
less. On his way home at night he stopped
at a tavern and wrote a heart-broken letter to
his wife, in which the sordid little cares of
business are curiously mingled with bursts of
passionate grief. He sends a tender farewell
to his "good and true wife, and his brave
boy Bennie," and takes care to say that he
"owes Mr. Baldwin five dollars," against
which he offsets "a show-case, some bed-linen,
and the large dolls." "Now I see," he cries,
"what a loving and good wife is. I was the
villain; can I answer before God ? But, dear
wife, it is better for you.". Here he reverts to
the monetary standard of valuation. "If I die,
then you receive $5000; but should I have lived,
our whole capital would have been but $300."
This is an alternative in the face of which
there is no possibility of hesitation. Although
his heart is bleeding at the separation, it
would not be possible to resist such a bargain.
"Zum letzten Male, lebt wohl! lebt wohl!
I have paid the rent up to th 14th of July."
With this strange letter in his pocket he went
home, and in the morning was so unusually
gay as to excite the surprise of his family,
lie had swallowed poison, and was as excited
as a child at the prospect of his journey; he
died apparently without regret. ......
There is a widespread oonf usion of moral
perception in regard to such performances,
which is not only the predisposing cause to
most of these suicides, but also influences the
general feeling of sympathy for the survivors
as against the defrauded corporations. It goes
beyond that natural and whimsioal fanoy of
the boatman who thought himself drowning,
and whose last reflection as he went under
was that it was a good joke on the insurance
companies. It tends to place the insurer and
the insured on . the footing of hostility, in
stead of co-operation, where they really
stand. An Arkansas gentleman tersely ex
pressed this distorted view of the case when,
declining the overtures of an agent, he said
he "had played about every game there was
on the cards, but wouldn't go into a thing
where he had got to die to win." There is
no other idea in the wretched mind of poor
Spears, as he prepares to perfect his title to
that five thousand dollars, which be considers
his own. His death ia only a necessary for
mula to enable him to draw the money.
The disregard for life whioh, in Oriental
countries, finds its highest ' expression in
duels by hari-kari and in vicarious executions,
has long been regarded as marking the most
radical point of difference between the East
era and the Western mind. But if we are to
go on in the way which has been indicated in
the last twelvemonth young metaphysicians
taking poison for purposes of disoovery,
lovers who fear separation killing themselves
with no settled arrangements for housekeep
ing anywhere else, and steady fathers of
family committing suicide in the interests of
their bank account how long will it ' be that
we cap look with wonder or disgust mpon our
antipodes, where, as a recent traveller re
quests us to believe, the height of praotioal
jesting consists in a suicide on a neighbor's
property, so as to give him the amusement
of a trial for murder? i . .
ENGLAND AND GERMANY.
From the jr. Y. World. ' ' ' ' , t
It seems to be admitted by the leading press
of England that the Prince-Premier of the new
German empire has really undertaken to ne
gotiate with Earl Granville for the surrender
to Germany of the Island of Heligoland. ' If
this is true Prince Bismarck must count
rather upon the prestige won by Germany in
her recent war with France, and upon the dis
position of Earl Granville's party in England
to keep the peace "at any price," than either
the inherent right of Germany in this case or
upon her power to enforce such a right, for
the success of his demand.
England undoubtedly holds Heligoland to
day by quite as good a tenure as that by which
Germany holds Holstein, and nothing is less
clear than the capacity of Germany to engage
in a successful conflict with England. The
strength of Germany is in her army, of which
there is no reason whatever to suppose that
she icould "mobilize" by sea any considerable
portion, in the face of the hostility
of the first naval power of the world. If
Germany . could count either upon ' the
forbearance of France or the alliance of
llussia, an attempt on her part to
force England at this time to the wall miht
he more probable than it can now be held to
be. But it is clear that nothing can be
rafely predicated of the French until their
government u reorganized on an enduring
basis, and it is hardly less clear that no Rus
sian Emperor,, whatever may be bia personal
Affinities with the princes of Germany, can
safely venture on a policy the effect of
which would be to give Germany absolute
control of the Baltic - It remains, therefore,
to be seen only whether Earl Granville and
the Government of whioh be is a member
are sufficiently impressed by the peril of their
own position of a great foreign war to seek
an escape from that peril through a still
more perilous abdication of England's posi
tion as a great power.
In this connection it is worth noting that
Blackwood' t clever parable of the "Battle of
Dorking" has just been reinforced by the
English Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr.
Robert Lowe, in a striking speech on the
apparent safety and the possible peril of
England. If it is in some respects a foible
of Mr. Lowe that he is the most un-English
of English statesmen, it is also in some re
spects his forte. If he worries his party and
helps its enemies by a disposition to treat the
solemn traditions of English culture and
English society as disrespectfully as Sir
David Brewster treated the North Pole, his
Australian experience and his cosmopolite
temper enable him to see England somewhat
as men outside of England see her. In the
speech to which we allude Mr. Lowe
urged upon the House of Commons
continuance in a steady reduction of the na
tional debt as a duty which the passing Eng
lishmen of to-day imperatively owe to the
enduring England of which they are citizens,
in view of the gathering clouds along the Eu
ropean horizon. He made a very felicitous
comparison between the condition of England
and of Europe at the close of the war of the
American Revolution and at the close of the
Franco-Prussian war. "Upon the conclusion
of Mr. Titt's commercial treaty of 178." with
the France of Louis XVI," said Mr. Lowe,
"everything seemed as if England was enter
ing on an era of prosperity." But what Eng
land really was entering on at that time were
the loDg and terrible wars with the French
republio and the French empire neither of
them then so much as dreamed of by the
wisest statesmen of the world.
Mr. Lowe might have pushed his com.
parison even further than he did. At the
close of the Crimean war, in 1 ."(!, England
seemed to have strengthened herself against
any probability of danger from abroad quite
as solidly as she seemed to have strengthened
herself against such dangers by the magnifi
cent triumphs of the elder Pitt, confirmed
to her in 1702 by the peaoe of Fontainebleau.
The prostration of Russia in 185G seemed
to deliver her from all risk of her position in
Asia, as the surrender of Canada by France in
1702 seemed to deliver her from all risk of
her position in America. Yet thirteen years
after the signing of the treaty of Fontaine
bleau that great war in the West began which
ended only with the downfall of the British
American empire. And fourteen years after
the signing of the treaty of Paris Russia has
recovered by a single bold diplomatio move
all the ground she had lost in the disastrous
war of the Crimea. Nay, only seven years
after the imaginary pacification of Europe by
the treaty of 1785 we find the great English
Minister openly saying in the House of Com
mons that he thought "England might safely
reckon on ten years of unbroken peace;" and
two years before this, in 1700, Edmund Burke
himself had pronounced France to be "self
extinguished in Europe," and upon the
strength of this verdict had recommended
"the speedy reduction of the English war
Mr. Lowe, however, has reasons to offer
tot Lis warning fresher and more striking
even than any reference to the shortsighted
ness of wise men as proved by the past. He
bids England take heed to herself for the
single and sufficient motive that she has
ceased to be confronted by a congeries of
powers, none of them exactly strong enough
to assail her if unsupported; and that she
finds herself to-day faoe to faoe with three or
four colossal States, any one of them abun
dantly able to grapple with her single-handed.
The old maxim of "Divide and conquer" has
ceased to be applicable with the absorption of
the smaller States of Europe. What England
has now to provide for is the contingency of a
conflict with such a power as Russia, or the
new German empire, or the United States.
In the wars of the last century and in the
Napoleonic wars the principle of coalition
played a great part, and diplomaoy had ample
scope and verge enough in the making and
the breaking up of combinations of States.
The Crimean war proved, by the attitude of
Austria, how much ' more difficult it is ' to
effect a coalition between two or three great
powers than between one great power and
several smaller States. The Franco-German
war inaugurates a new era of colossal duels,
and the power which is unprepared to sustain
such a duel single-handed is In very serious
peril of its position as a great -power if not
of its existence as a nation. Hence . the
timorous attitude of Austria at this
moment; and hence, as Mr. Lowe
conceives, the urgent necessity for England
of a reorganization of her. financial and her
fighting force. - Another motive for anxiety
on the part of England Mr. Lowe touched
upon more lightly. It is the decay, made
manifest by the internal condition of
France during the late war, of what used
to be the spirit of patriotism in Europe; . and
the tendency of classes . to array themselves
on the lines of class sympathy in obedience
to class interests. It was believed by all the
world down to the outbreak of the recent
Parisian civil war that the 'French feeling"
of Frenchmen was stronger than the corres
pondent national feeling of any nation in
Europe. . .
Events have dissipated that belief. Bat is
there any good ground for believing that the
divorce of class from class has made less pro
gress in England than on the Continent ? Is
there not reason even to believe that it has
made more progress in England than on the
. . -
! REVIVAL OF THE SLAVE TRADE.
From the K. Y. Timet. .
When the account was lately received from
China , of the shocking catastrophe whereby
nearly six hundred coolies were destroyed
who were pent up in the hold of a burning
ship, the question naturally arose as to why
these miserable beings were so confined. The
tragedy itself equals any of the worst horrors
of the Middle Passage that roused the virtu
ous fury of Wilberforce, and there Is, we
fear, searoely less reason for the interference
of ! the civilized and philanthropic world in
the one case than there was in the other.
It is not generally known that, beside the
trade in coolies, another similar traffic is now
carried on which even exceeds it in nefarious
injustice. It is the old story of cruelty, despo
tism, and selfishness, stricken down ia one
quarter, appearing and flourishing under a
new name in another. We are assured that
for years pa6t vessels have been fitted up for
the ostensible purpose of trading with the
Sooth Sea Islands, but in reality for kidnap
ping the the finiplft. minded Polynesians and
delivering them into bondage. There is a
great demand for labor among the Queens
land planters, and they are willing, it is de
rlarttl, to pay a good price for the wretch si
I inlanders thus wickedly obtained. Of c auras,
it does not answer to call these people slaves.
The are styled laborers, and their toil,
by a polite fiction, is supposed to be
voluntary. Indeed, it has been generally
thought that colonial legislation provided for
the welfare and right treatment of the im
ported hands, whether coolies or Polynesians.
The theory was that these laborers were kept
only for three yean, at the expiration of which
time they were sent home, each receiving a
final sum of ninety dollars. The practioe
was to get the unfortunate savage in debt for
clothes and small luxuries extravagantly
charged for, so that at the end of his term,
instead of getting his discharge and his ninety
dollars, the poor fellow wenld find himself in
debt to his master, and forced to begin a
fresh period of servitude to work it out.
It is true that in 18G8 the Queensland au
thorities passed a Foreign Immigration act,
"that no person shall Import Polynesians unless he
enters Into a bond of ts.wo, with two sureties, to pre
vent kidnapping; and a further bond of tr0 for each
Immigrant, to return lilra to his country at the end
of three years; nor may any native be landed In
Queensland unless he understands the agreement
and has entered Into It voluntarily."
But this act, we are advised, is systematiq
ally and easily violated, so that it in effect
renders matters worse for the laborers than
they were before. What with men of straw
for sureties, the enforced consent, under
pressure of debt,, of the immigrant to a
waiver of his bond of return, and other
facile devices, the act practically affords no
protection at all. Meanwhile, the treatment
of the immigrants on the seas is most in
human. The commander of a man-of-war,
the Daphne, that recently boarded one of
these modern slave-ships, discovered
over one hundred natives in a state of com
plete nudity, although the act expressly pro
vided that each one shall be furnished with a
shirt, a pair of trousers, and a blanket. This
gentleman, Commander Palmer, states it as
his opinion that all these unhappy people
were kidnapped, and says, further, that the
ship was fitted in every respect as a slave
trader, irons alone excepted. It is to be hoped
that a knowledge of these facts by the English
uovernment will lead to the application of
such prompt and stringent remedies as may
put an end to proceedings so heinous.
