?THE CORPSE IN TEE TRUNK.
USRAVELLIXG THE LATEST NEW \
Identification of the .?lurdere r and His
Victim-Details of the InT-c&tigatlon
-The Case Clearing Up, o?C.
The mystery ot the corpse in the trunk at
New York is being unravelled, step by step. J
As announced by telegraph, the truckman I
came forward and acknowledged that he was
the man who carried the corpse to the depot.
His name was William Pickett. His identica
tion of the boy Potts, who helped the woman
click the trunk at the depot, was the first
step in solving thv mystery. The reBt is told
Picket says that on Saturday last, a woman
came to his stand, on the corner of Twenty
ninth street and Third avenue, and asked him
to go to the basement of No. 687 Second ave
nue and get a trunk of hers, which be would
obtain by ringing the bell and telling the peo?
ple what he wanted. Then he was to put it
oft his truck and briog it to the Hudson River
Railroad depot, whither Bhe was going In a
coupe. She paid him In advance, changing a
five-dollar bill to do so, and they parted. He
went to the house, rang the hell, and, the door I
opening, was ushered into the basement cham
ber. There was no hall. Here he observed
several women and a tall mac, whom the
carman described so aecurately as to enable
acting police Sergeant Rooney to Identify him
as Jacob Rosenzweig, whom he knew well,
acting Sergeant Rooney then went in civilian
clothes, and loitered around the neighbor- I
CAPTURE OF THE SUPPOSED PRINCIPAL.
<0 The sergeant had been there but a short
time when Dr. Jacob Rosenzweig, the occu
?ant of the house, came Irom the direction of I
irst avenue. As the doctor neared tbe house
he recognized the policeman, and immediate?
ly ran Into Boylan's liquor store, at Thirty-1
seventh street and Second avenue, and tried
to hide in a closet. Sergeant Rooney was close
After him, and, dragging him from his hiding
?ilace, led bim Into the street. By this time a
arge multitude, attracted by the presence ot
the police, had gathered in the neighborhood.
As the sergeant returned to the street with his
prisoner, the crowd closed In on him, and the
cry went up of "String the wretch up to a
lamp-post." The crowd' became so demonstra-1
tlve that the sergeant and his men were finally
.C impelled to draw their pistols and warn the ]
crowd to keen back, threatening to shoot the
first man who dared to interfere with their
progress. The prisoner was then taken to the
station, followed by a clamorous crowd, whlcb,
by the time they reached the station, had swell
ed to many thousands.
KNOWN TO THE TOLICE.
The doctor bas gained notoriety with the po
lice, to whom be ls known as Dr. Ascher. He
denied all knowledge ot the murder, and said I
that lt was all a mistake. Dr. Rosenzweig ls a I
Pple. He came to New York from Platz, Po- ,
land, about seven years ago, and immediately
commenced the practice of medicine. He is a
member of the Eclectic College, on Twenty-1 :
sixth street. He ls about thirty-five yean old ?
and very stoat, with large, coarse features.
His hair, which ls light flaxen, curls tightly to 11
his head, and ls worn parted in the middle. I
He has a wife and several children, one an in?
fant 'our weeks old. Pickett said ne believed
Roser ; we! g to be the man who bad given him ?
the trunk, but he was not sure that he had I j
?ver seen the girl bet?re. The wife, he thought, | <
was in the basement at the time of its deliv- ,
erv, and asked him where he was going to I (
take lt. However, he was not very clear on i i
On further examination it was found that .
Hrs. Rosenzweig, who first denied all know-1 ?
fledge of the trunk business, said very Inno- I,
?.centiy that she was too delicate to be down I ?
stairs on Saturday when the truckman called, I .
but hastily correcting herself, she again pro-1 j
leased total ignorance of any such affair having i
transpired. Inspector Walling found out af-1 ?
terwards that the woman had been down to 11
the basement four or five times since her con- IJ
finement; ' Dr. Rosenzweig has two houses In 11
- - which, he carries on his business. Those who i
know him say that about two years ago he
kept a lager beer saloon in this city, but prob
ably not finding lt as profitable as be desired, 11
he. turned his attention to the "practice" ot i
medicine. He ls a fat, coarse and sensual I.
looking fellow, without any traces of refine-1
ment In person or manners, and does net bear
the faintest appearance of the educated phys!-1 j
HORE LIGHT. j
A thorough search ol Dr. Rosenzweig's !
premises failed to discover the woman who
had caused the trunk to be checked. The I
house ls still under surveillance. Rosenzweig
has a diploma Irom . he so-called medical col-1 "
Ieee of Philadelphia. The prisoner ls very ;
reticent, and denies all knowledge of the '
affair, though the police claim to possess posl-1 :
tlve evidence of als complicity. Inspectors I}
Jameson and Walling believe they have a cer-1
tain clue to the woman who accompanied the I :
trunk to the depot. I j
ANOTHER CLUE. I ']
? notice came to Inspector Walling to-day, '
from the eighteenth precinct, that an under I f
taker had called at tlie statlonhouse and testi- i
fled that a man called on him a few days ago 1
and wished him to bury a body,* which ne 1
stated was that of bis servant; also that be did 1
?ot care how lt was burled, but wished it done ?
nickly, and that he only wanted the hearse, c.
be undertaker, who gives his name as James 1
" Boyle, and place of business as No. 658 Sec- I
ond avenue, was then shown the doctor, and e
identified him as the man who called on him fi
and wished to have the body of his servant e
burled. Boyle says he asked the doctor for a t
certificate, and the doctor wanted to know if r
?he could not be burled without a certificate, i
Boyle also says the doctor's manner was calca- c
lated to excite suspicion, as he seemed fearful c
of every sound. Boyle signed the above state- \
ment, and declared he was willing to testify in 1
court at any time. t
The body in the trunk has been finally iden- ,
tifled as Alice Bowlesley, of Paterson, N. J. ,
The teeth, the peculiar positkv- of a vaccine ,
Ajnark, a mole and a scar made the identifica
.Tion complete. A handkerchief, marked A.
A Bowlesley, was found at Dr. Rosenzweig's 1
Walter Conklldg, of Paterson, New Jersey, f
connected with the Bowlesley affair, has com?
mitted suicide. Bali has been refused in the 1
case of Dr. Perry and Madame Van Buskirk, ?
the alleged abortionists. A habeas corpus waa .
issued for Dr. Rosenzweig.

VERSAILLES, August 31.
Ia the Assembly, to-day, there was a lull at?
tendance of deputies, and the galleries were
crowded in expectation o? decisive action on
the prolongation ol Thlers's powers. Rivet
announced that the special committee bad
agreed to receive the amendment proposed by
Dulalre to the decree reported by them on
Monday. It was therefore announced that the
government would accept the decree. Loud
protests were made by members of the Left.
Numerous amendments, which had been pro?
posed to the measure, were withdrawn. The
excitement in the chamber during these pro?
ceedings was intense. The discussion on the
preamble, whereby the Assembly assumes con?
stituent powers, proved tumultuous. A violent
scene of ten minutes' duration was closed by
the president putting on his hat. Gambetta
opposed the assumption of constitutional pow?
ers, declaring he would not accept even the
Republic from the present Assembly. Fiually,
the preamble assuming constituent powers
was adopted, 433 to 227. The subject of the
dissolution of the Assembly is settled for the
present. A caucus held by the extreme Lett,

assuming constituent powers.
MADRID, August 30.

It applies to all political offences committed In

THE CHEAP MEAT PROBLEM. ;
Texas Beef Retailed on Shipboard from
Philadelphia-A New Departure for
The arrival of the steamer Fire Fly, at Phil?
adelphia, with a cargo ot fresh Texas beef,
brought under a patent refrigerating process, !
has already been mentioned. The city retail 1
butchers did not purchase the car??, and an?
nouncement was made that beef as fresh and
Brm and sweet as the most dainty appetite ,
2ou!d ask would be sold at retail on board the '
Fire Fly at five to fifteen cents per pound. The
following description of the lively scene which
ensued ls given by the Philadelphia Bul- \
letln : 1
when it-became known that fresh Texas <
beef was being sold on the steamer at half the f
rates charged in the street markets, a great f
rush ot people of all colorr was at once made 1
to tf.ke advantage of the rare opportunity ot '
obtaining good meat at such very low rates. <
Cap uiii Townsend at once transformed a por- '
lion of the lore-deck into a well-appointed
meat-stand, and secured a corps of carvers, '
who are now, and have been since this tempo- <
rary meat shop was opened, Industriously en?
gaged In attending to the host of customers
constantly pressing forward for the cheap
texas beet. The scene this morning was an
nterestlDg one. Rich and poor crowded for?
ward to be served, calling for quantities from
i pound to a quarter, and while waiting were 2
prolific in their encomiums upon its good quail- '
:.y and its cheapness, and their riddance from
the "butcher monopoly" which they were com?
pelled to support for so long a time.
The Philadelphia North American of the 25th
instant devotes an editorial column to a bis
ioryofthe enterprise and the plans for Its
:uture prosecution. It says: i
The refrigerating process involved is a c
patent, and has worked with the utmost satis
action. The meat is sweet and tender and
uley, and wants only In those characteristics
hat belong to stall-fed or highly prepared
in ?mais that are sought by connoisseurs at ex
reme prices. Those used were an average of
nterlor herds. The hides and horns were i
tent on the same 6hip with the carcasses, on s
leek, and found a ready sale at private terms, t
rte temperature there, when killed, was 95 r
legrees. As the first shipment was In Its t
?ature experimental, nearly a week was al
owed to elapse before an organized effort was
nade to market lt. This lt was calculated
vould remove any prejudice that existed, or
?how the failure of the enterprise decisively,
rhe point ls settled, and it is so settled that t
viii!e this beef has been disposed of at between
ive and fifteen cents, according to quality, we t
nay look forward to sales at still lower prices,
tow large receiving refrigerators will be built i
here and here. Philadelphia butchers will c
eave -teere on the return trip. An United
itates inspector will be sent out to certify the ri
luality ot the meat. The cattle will be grain- a
ed on their receipt, before being butchered, i
he poorer portions salted, and only the besty c
hipped. And the sblD running between the
;reat refrigerators will not be detained at ii
lither port. It is intended to add mutton to v
he cargo, and to bring red fish, red snapper, v
lompano and other choice varieties of fish,
ind should the demand warrant, the endless
?yster-fllled bayous of Barataria and the whole
loast, and the countless flocks of ducks that
vaste along the streams of Southeastern
rexas, where they can be and are killed by
he boat load, will also be sent forward. The r
?ext cargo ls to be expected in about forty- r
ive days from the day of departure here. It ,
nay be sold by the cargo on arrival, or stored
ind retailed to large dealers. It will not be
retailed again as In this instance.
The foregoing account indicates that one t
lrst difficulty in the way of bringing fresh ,
neat, preserved by the Telller process ol re?
frigeration, from Texa?, was encountered in
he opposition of the local butchers. This was
promptly overcome by converting the steamer
nto a retail beef mn: kit, and so effectually
.hat the retail butchers appear now to have
;mbarked in the enterprise. If lt be true that
resh, wholesome meat, of good quality, can
ie profitably retailed at ten to fifteen cents per ?
KHind, the "new departure" in transportation j
viii be welcomed wlih a cordiality verging on t
; nth us ? asm. <

At no previous period In the history or the Cot

evidence of their great agrien:taral capacity than
daring the year Just closed. Commencing at the
termination ot hostilities, six years ago, with
change In the labor systam, without precedent in
Its suddenness, and which was supposed by many
to have placed them ina condition to prevent any
development ot their wealth for a considerable
time, without capital, except the energy ot the
population and a fruitful soil, the leading stap
has Increased In growth until lt has reached an
amount only surpassed by one year la former
Industrial efforts. This has been achieved In the
face of heavily retarding political conditions,
which are only gradually being overcome by
praiseworthy fortitude and self-command. As
the rapid development of the Southern cotton

lowing facts will Indicate Its progressi Ia

The Crop of 1870-'71.
The great results of the cotton crop just closed
was largely owing to tba protracted favorable
season, which was almost without precedeat In
Its long continued spell of good picking weather,
and which enabled the planters to secare and
send to market an amount of the staple beyond
the highest estimates early ia the j ear; but the
large quaut Hy steadily forced do wa prices, and
the crop was marketed with but ll'tie benefit to
the Sooth, middling ranging from 13>i@21c In
this market, and the net results were so limited)
as to cause the general business of this section to
be the most unsatisfactory since the war. The

The Cropof 187i-'7?.
The very low rates obtained for the cotton crop
if last year, which was cultivated ander heavy
izpense, rendered lt necessary that the present
me should be made at low figures. For this pur
>ose, commercial fertilizers were only purchased
otha extent of about one-fourth. The area In
cotton was] lessened over a large surface to the
imount of ou ?-sixth, a full grain crop was plant
id, and great economy practiced la all expend?
urea. The early part of the planting season was
rery unsatisfactory over a great part,of the South
vest, heavy and continued rains taking place,
ireventlng the proper working of the fields, caus
ng a luxuriant growth or gr??s, and rendering lt
lecessary to abandon parts of the crop. In the
nore northerly portions of the cotton belt, the
veatber, early In the season, acted more favo ra?
lly, and the prospect for a full average yield la
ropurtlon to the surface planted was good; bur,
a Jane and July a severe drought in Caro
loa damaged both corn and cotton. Later in the
eason the complaints were more general, with
eports ot worms In the Ou r States, with rust tn
he Atlantic section, indicating a diminished crop,
'he causes tending to rednce the crop are a more
imlted surface planted, bad weather early In the
ear in the most ptolinc portions of the South,
nth a drought injune and July la Carolina, a
ery limited use or fertilizers, and generally an
Qfcrlor condition of the plant without reports
? worms, rust, Ac. The deduction to bo
o be made for these canses ls qnlte speculative,
nd may amount to 1,000,000 bale3 or over-leav
ag a probable crop of 3,000,000 to 3.250,000 bales,
he latest aspect rather indicating about 3,000,000
ales, and with an early frost and bad weather in
he rall, this an&u nt might even be reduced.
The Sea Island Crop.
The planters of the long stap.le cotton In Caro?
ma, Georgia and Florida, have had numerous
lirrlculiies to obstruct their raising or this staple
n addition to troubles aristo; from the unsettled
tate of labor, the destructive action of insects
vas without precedent, and seemed to have be
:ome a hxed feature of the climate. To meet
bis difficulty short staple cotton was, to a certain
.xtent, substituted during the past season; but
.he result proved unprofitable, and the experi
nent this year was abandoned. It is difficult to
;s : ima te the precise area placed under cultiva
lon for the present crop. While In some localities
lhere will be an Increase owing to the absence of
:he short staple culture, In o.hers the lessened
neans of punters, in consequence or the difficulty
>f obtaining advances, have restricted operations
The weather, up to a late date, was propitious,
ind the plant promised well; but heavy easterly
tales have lately prevailed over Florida and the
:oast of Carolina and Georgia, and much injury ls
.eported la some quarters, which may reduce the
neal to an important extent, and may prevent
;he result from rising above tue figures or the
rear just closed-say 20,coo bags of Carolina,
3eorgla and Floridas.
The prices during the past seas in in thia market
yere as follows : In September last medium Caro
mas opened at 6Cc ty tt. In October common
ivere quoted at 38@42, medium at 43@55, good
lae at 65@75c. In November common were at
18@45, medium at 46@55, good at 56@85, fine at

In January common Carolinas improved to 40@

57 for medium, 7C@76 for good, and 80@85 for

The Rice Crop.
The difficulties attending the cultivation of this
valuable grain have prevented its anti-war pro
duct, and the crop or Carolina and Georgia
creake moderately. The main obstacles are
heavy outlay neccessary to keep the ditches
banks, Ac. tn proper order, and the want
cheap and reliable labor. The procurement or these
Important facilities requiring time, the work
recuperation bas been slow. There has, however
been some enlargement In the growth, and the
great superiorly that has always characterized
the Carolina article, as compared wlthothe* ', w
secure lt a market at full rates. The demaud
from the northwest section or our country has
been good during the past season, and as the
orders have come direct to this point, Instead
via New York, lt has done much to add to the
tone and strength or prices here. This grain bas
been sent In many cases direct by rall to places
tn Illinois, Missouri, Iowa and Kansas, as well
those near at hand; and that great secton
country promises In i he future to be a'valuable
customer In this market. The Information re
celved in reference to the area planted docs net
make lt vary materially from the year before
but perhaps on the whole the agricultural season
up to a late period was better, and the cultivation
more thorough. But In a few weeks past, heavy
gales, with high waters, have occurred, banks
bave been broken, and the plant overflowed; this
being, however, mostly confined to the rice dis
trlct near Savannah and the southern rivers ot
this State. The amonnt or damage sustained
rrom this cause ls uncertain, and a larger result
than last year can hardly be expected. The
range of prices for the last crop took a wide
scope, reaching at one time quite a low point
but again rallying, the rates showed the follow
lng movement for thia term: In September, 187
good rice was quoted at 9c, and ralr at 8)?c $ rb
In October 6X@7c for good, and e@e>?c for fair
In November for good, and 5@5?ic for
