LITS OF CRITICISM.
A Caise op War.?The bless! np pronounced

papers. The popular opinion tbat the conductors of
newt-papers like war, because war helps to sell their
Journals, ls probably erroneous. War is bad tor trade,
and any thin nthat ls bsd for trade is bud for the press.
But, on the whole, out of the mere desire to Hud some?
thing to jay, newspapers do sometimes happen to tn
courage war. There may bo some slight lll-leellng be?

are bound to drag tbe altair Into pul.I.i ii v.

that abe lias taken a diplomatic, licking, or that Italy

The closine; performance ol Miss Neilson's engage
nirnt at Booth's Theatro oeettrred last nit'lit. anti
was seen by one of the large:v-t assemblsges eyer
congregated in that house. A littlo before the per?
formance began lhere wu a lim* display of eolored

tion, tbat tbo public applause WM more than com?
monly quick and eager. In other respects tbe oe
easton offered no exceptional feature, and it is not
essential here to comment afresh ou tho art work
of the night.
If thought was stimulated in nny one direction
moro than another hy Miss Neilson's acting
of Juliet, it was toward lier profound sincerity
and indomitable will. .Miicli as she has played
Juliit, lier treatment of its lightest grace and sub?
tlest meanings, equally with its strongest scenes of
passion, was found to lie as thorough as the lim ll
?kill and tbe deepest feeling could make it. Notic?
ing was neglected ; nothing lightly dono; tho grace
of unconscious identification played all along (lie
line of tho work, and the glow of spontaneity lit
up thc text and mada it " ai musical as is Apollo's
lute." This deep conscientiousness is a very im?
portant part of the strength of Miss Neilson's act?
ing, rand forms the proper basis ol all her graceful
There wore in tho Balcony Scene last night cer?
tain exceedingly sweet touches of girlish archness
the signs of a bright young spirit inuliiiig its tray
through tho tumult and intensity of newly-bum
passion and strange, bewildering circumstances -
winch, somehow-, scorned to make this charming
passage more eloquent than eter, as tho cxpre-slon
ol ideal beauty. Another token, this, that Miss
Neilson's instinct of art is unerringly oorreet?tor
the shadow of dark presentiment, falling ai thc first
upon both Juli, f and Romeo, ia but a passing gloom,
and neither of them ean really foresee the " conse?
quence yet hanging in tlie stars." lu what way
this actress Intensifies mid strengthens, a>
what is thus prefigured finally comes (?>
pass, this public of pl.iv-goo rs has often
seen, and this column ians sufficiently described.
Tbe personation waa as pure uud radiant as wind?
swept lilies in Its earlier scenes Inst night, and ii

That there were Blight signs nt fatigue in .Miss
Neilson's acting should cause no surprise. Hhe is
near tbe cud of one of thc most laborious and c\
acting professional seasons that she h;is eyer filled.
lt began on October 20 last year, at the Park The?
atre, in Brooklyn, and, except for hriel mt. rinis

MUHDERED BY HER HUSBAND
A VICTIM OF JEALOUS FRENZY.
DRLIDBItAlK JIlCliDKIt OF MPS. JOHANNA BBF.l
MAN'N OTII TWO MONTHS OF MAItHIED lift.
A terrible ennui was brought to light yesterday
by the police of thc Eighteenth Precinct. Mrs.
Johanna iireimann, tho wife of a German baiter,
was lound murdored in ber room on tbo third floor
of tho tem.iiiciit-liou.-ji* No. 512 East Sixteenth-st.
On thc table lay a letter, written by her husband,
in which bo stated that he bad killed ber because
she was unfaithful to bim. Tbe woman bad lain
dead sine? Thursday nijrht. Whether ber husband,
after killing her, had fled with their savings, or had
sought death in the river, has not yet been discov?
ered by the police.
The Iireimann family hired two rear rooms in the
house two months ugo of Jacob Becker, the land?
lord. They were then newly married. Tbe bus
baiid,Frciicrick Emil Breimann.waa by trade abaker
and worked iu George Heubner's bakery at No. 109
Keveuth-ave. Tbe wife waa a good-looking German
woman of twenty-five years, hard-working and
thrifty. Thev had not lived long in the house be?
fore tho man's insane aud apparently unfounded
jealousy drove bim to acts of violence, and he was
f requen t ly heard to beat his wife. In tbeir quarrels
a sum of money which Mrs. Iireimann bad saved np
before her marriage played a part as welL The
baker wanted this money, said to amount to over
?f OOO, in order tbat be might begin business on hui
own account, but his wife opposed tbe plan and re?
fused to surrender tbe bank book. To her neighbors,
who had grown to like the patient woman, Mrs.
Iireimann complaiued at times that ber husband
woe unreasonable and violent, and once or twice
they were called upon to protect her against his
On Thursday evening the woman visited a Mrs.
Lopez, whoso rooms adjoin ber own, nnd told ber
that she had found some work to do and waa going
out in t bo morning early. Shortly after Mrs. Lopez
beard Mn, Lieimauu talking to her husband in
their bedroom, and thought that they hud retired.
Tho peace of the house .voa not disturbed that
night, but at 10 o'clock another neighbor heard the
baker walk hnrriedly down tbo stairs. Tbe next
morning the baker's door remained clotted, and
neither ho nor bis wifo was seeu. The matter ox
cited no suspicion, as it was thought that the
woman was out at work. But yesterday after?
noon, when Mrs. Becker, tho landlord's wife, tried
to enter and found the door still closed, sbe was
curious enonah to procure a chair, and wltb a
neighbor woman got un and looked through tbo fan?
light over tho door. They saw tbe room bespat
ti red with blood, and, ^frighted, seut for Ibe police.
Three officers bani open thc door and found Mrs.
Breimann, with her throat cul from ear to ear, lying
npon her bed in luy; night clothes. She bad been
dead since Thursday night. Her attitude was ono
<>f (lesiur.itu self-defence, and black bruises on ber
hotly and limbs showed that a violent struggle had
taken place. On tbe floor beside tho bed lay au
open clasp-knife ami a razor. The murderer bad
used both, taking up (lie razor apparently when be
found the knife too dull. A sponge had beeu thrust
into thc gaping wound iii tho woman's throat, with
fiendish canning, to prevent bec death-rattle irom
being heard in the adjoining room. A trunk that
contained the dead woman's private property had
been emptied on the floor and its contents appar?
ently turtled over ni haste. Flung upon tho floor
wirra man's clothes covered willi blood. The mur?
der, r h.ul washed himself and changed his clothes
before ho went away. On the tabli* in tho centre of
tbe room the police foand Hu* explanation of the
foul died ni a imfr scrawled in German on a piece of
paper, which a saloon-keeper in the house recog?
nizeil at having been given by him to lSreimaun,
with a pencil, ai 8 o'clock on 'thursday Olgh<t, at his
request, Tho note ran as follows: *

Heubner's bakery on Thursday morn in ir, nnd
Hom this mouietit probably dated tbe resolution,
