llerahi special ; The friends of Mr.
liancroft, the historian, will be grieved
to learn that Mrs. Bancroft divd this
evening at 9:30. She had been gravely
ill for a number of weeks, but until
within a few days it was believed
that she might regain Iter strength
with the approach of spring, as was
the case last year, and be able to re
turn to Newport for the summer. Bi.t
her life was too greatly exhausted by
the disease from which she had long
Buffered. Mrs. Bancroft will be sorely
missed by the numerous circle of
friends she had drawn around her in
this city. Her bright conversation,
her constant cheerfulness and gayety
amid almost constant suffering, "and
her unflagging interest in all that went
on in the political and social world
here and abroad, made her house
the most charming in Washington,
and her acquaintance was sought and
enjoyed alike by statesmen and byjthe
youuger ami gayer part of society,
ller strong sympathy with ivery good
cause and her admirable judgment of
men and events made her conversa
tion delightful and instructive to those
who were admitted to her :riendshu
and who regarded her with affection
ate reverence. Like her husband, she
retained her faithful sympathies in
her old age, and no oneVho knew
her will ever forget the singular charm
of her presence, her kindly Hiiile and
her friendly conversation. Her death
is a grievous loss to all who had the
happiness to know her.

the last words of Joachim Hayward

breathed his last at his home, No.
2tHW Thirteenth street, Sunday night.
This remarkable and interesting man
was bom at Calcutta in the tirst year
of this century, but was early taken
to Kngland. There ho passed his
boyhood. His mother was visiting in
Brussels during "the hundred days"
in 1815. She was invited to the
Duchess of Bichmond's hall, and in
the absence of his father young Sid
dons, hardly fifteen years old, accom
panied his moMier. fcven during his
ast illness tho aged man graphically
described the departure of tlie En
glish ollicers for the field on which
the battle of Waterloo was subse
quently fought. Byron immortalized
the incident, but in a note he cast
some doubt upon the reality of tho
event. Mr. Siddons, however, main
uuncti its utmost accuracy, tie wag
an actor at seventeen. Two years
later ne secured a commission in the
British army and went to India
Aften ten years' service he resitrned
to take charge of the Calcutta English
man. At various times he lived over
forty years in India, and built the San

a major oi Mddonss regiment was
letailed to go ashore and deliver these
gifts. Ho took young Siddons along
as an aid. itiey totind .Bonaparte in
the garden, and he walked with them
slowly back to the house. He an-
eared greatly affected by the thought
til remembrance of his English
friends. When the British officer and
his young aid were taking their de
parture, tlie deposed Emperor turned
pathetically to Siddons and said: "I
w ish you well, young man, and I hoie
your success may bo more enduring
than mine." These words were uttered
in a tone of voice so heartbroken. Mr.
Siddons was often wont to say, that
the tears came to his young eyes de
spite all his English training regarding
Bonaparte. The death of the captive
occurred a little more than a year
after, in May, 1K21.

22, 18S0, the steam yacht Mamie, car
rying the acolytes of Most Holy Trin
ity Catholic church, collided with the
ferry steamer Garland, having an ex
cursion party on loard. Seven per
sons were drowned, and suits for dam
ages wore begun by relatives against
the two boats. During the past six
years an immense amount of litigation
has been carried on, the matter being
fought through the Canadian courts
and the State and I'nited States
court, one suit reaching the Supreme
Court. There were in all forty-eight
suits pending when a settlement was
reached. The surplus of the com
pany, after certain previous obliga
tions are paid, will be paid over to the
plaintiffs. The suits in the various
courts were discontinued this morning-

: 5,0 0 tons of special steel, which can
be made and delivered in American
markets at from $2 5 ) to $i per ton
less than the price at which the Amer

to the increased cost of labor and
material. It is apprehended that
