-An interesting event In the dramatic
world L the reappearance upon the American
stage ol the veteran actress, Miss Charlotte
Cushman, who is still, notwi? islanding her
age, tn the Iront rank of I' lng actress?.-.
More than a generation hus j a;sed si- ce Miss
Cushman first came belore the public us an
artist. About the year 1830 she made her first
appearance at the Tremont Theatre, In Boston,
as Almaviva, in the opera Marriage of Figuro.
But she quickly learned that opera was not ber
forte, and in 1830 she appeared on the f tage of |
the Old Bowery, in New York, as Lacy Mac?
beth. From that lime forth she maintained
her great reputation as an exponent of Sitakes
pearlan characters, und ot the characters ot
the Intense drama generally. Her first p ofes
slonal visit to Europe was in 1S44. Miss Justi?
nian has not played in this country sine? 18G0.
For some time previous to the presen' year
ehe has been living abroad, and the fi st Inti?
mation of her probable return to the 61 ige was
given out last year, when it was ext? nslveiy
heralded in the press that ihelamouf actress
of other times was slowly dying of ct ocer in
Borne. As fortune would have it, h iwever.
Miss Cushman's death has as yet taken no
more practical shape limn that of the dramatic
boards-a lact which affords great pleasure lo
the friends of the drama, of whlcL she is so
distinguished an adjunct and exponeut.
-Dispatches from Washington report a
growing excitement there about the gloomy
prospects of Secretary Boutweli's Syndicate
scheme. The secretary admits that the sub?
scribers to the Syndicate in Europe have paid
but lillie beyond their five per cent, margin,
and yet he himself sees co teason for discour?
agement, as sixty days yet remain in which to
pay up. He also confesses that Assistant Secre?
tary Richardson has requested that no lore ol'
the new bonds be sent to Europe at prebent, as
the Syndicate already has $20,000,000 on hand
which cannot be disposed ol just now. Letters
to banking houses in Washington also state
that the subscribers are relusing to piy up.
In consequence of these udvices no more ol
the new bonds will be shipped abro id tit
present. If this failure ol the loan should
prove true it would create a financial muddle
In the Treasury Department; for il the Syndi?
cate cannot carry the seventy millions which
they ordered, lhere will not be sufficient
money in the treasury on the 1st ol December
to redeem the one hundred ml'lion flve-twec
ties which have been called in. The best in?
formed financiers, including eenuin treasury
officials, do not see where tho secrelary can
realize more than forty millions whereby to
meet hid heavy obligations on the 1st of De?
cember. It ls affirmed th u ih? reasons given
by European subscribers why Uley do not
more rapidly liquidate their subscriptions ls
tbat the Synt. cale did not deal hurls by
tliem; Dial the loan was so manipulated when
it was placed upon the inurkel that il com?
manded n premium ol lwo and a half per cent. ;
and thal immediately after they had subserit -
ed to the whole amount the bonds went two
and a half per Cent, below par.

Chit Ugo Is Fallen !
The great City of Chicago, which forty
years ago was a mere trading post, whose
magical advance in population and wealth
was one of the marvels of the age, is DOW a
' ?ap of smoking ruins. The fifth city in the
United State?, a teemiDg hive of three hun?
dred thousand busy souls, now appeals for
food for the tens of thousands whom a fear?
ful conflagration has left homeless and desti?
tute. ID twenty years Chicago became one
of the first commercial places of the world,
aod two days has sufficed for its destruction.
The wharves, the warehouses, the depots,
the huge elevators, the mammoth hotels, are
swept away. This Chicago, upon whose
sad notoriety we do cot care to dwell, is
purified by tire.
?s lons ago as 1860 the imports and ex?
ports of Chicago were valued at two bun
dred million dollars. It was the first grain
aod provision market in the world, and its
lumber trade exceeded that of every other |
port i ti the Union. The Chicago peopie be?
lieved, and with good reasoD, that their
city would soon boast of half a million in?
habitants. Tbeir course was to be upward
and onward, without check or bait. Now
they must begin over again the work of ma?
We doubt Dot that the appeal of the j
Mayor bas been promptly answered. Thous?
ands of bands will be ready to do their part
io alleviating the weight of what, in profane |
history, ls an unparalleled disaster. The
crimes of the city will not, we hope nod
trust, be visited upon the beads of its su Her?
The Elections To-Day.
To-day three important elections occur.
Ohio elects State officers and Legislature,
and votes on a revision of the State consti?
tution. That the Republican Stale ticket
will be elected ia conceded, and the chief in?
terest centres in the coolest for the control
if tbe Legislature, which will elect a succes?
sor to Senator Sherman, and have charge of j
:be new apportionment of the State for the
election of Congressmen. The last Legisla?
te stood-on joint ballot-69 Republicans,
ti Democrats and 7 Reformers, who have
usually voted with the Democrats. lu 1869
ihe Republican Governor, Hayes, was elect?
ed by 7518 mojority. Pennsylvania votes
to-day for auditor, surveyor and Legislature.
Philadelphia will elect a mayor and city
orlicer3. The Republican mojority in 1869
was 4596, and tbe Legislature last chosen
stood, on joint ballot, 72 Republicans, 61
Democrats. Iowa also votes for State offi?
cers and members of the Legislature. The
Republican mojority for secretary of State
in 1S69 was 42,489.
The Insurance ot Suicides.
A case was decided in the United States
Circuit Court, sitting at Hartford, Connec?
ticut, last week, which, io all probability,
will oblige the life iosuraoce companies to
revise their policies, at least io one particu?
lar. AraoDg the usual couditioos on which
a life policy is graoted, is one deciariDg that
if the person dies of suicide the ?olicy is
void. It was this poiot which fo..ued the
subject o? a suit before the court.
A mao named Gay, who was iosured
in the Union Life Insurance Company of
Maine, committed suicide, on a railroad
train, by putting a pistol to bis temple and
shooting himself. The widow brought suit
for the amount of the policy-five thousand
dollars-which the company refused to pay,
and removed the case from the State Court
to the Circuit Court of the United States.
The defence was that Gay died by suicide,
arid that the policy was therefore void. The
counsel admitted that there were cases in
which insanity developed itself, and that if,
iu a paroxysm so superinduced, a mau killed
himself, such self-killing would Dot be held
to be suicide within the meaning of that
term. With respect to the deceased, they
couteoded that although the evidence went
to show that he "was to some extent aflect
"ed by insaDe delusions on some subjects,"
bis moral consciousness was not impaired,
and that he knowingly aod deliberately
killed himself rather than live longer. The
counsel for the widow contended that, at
the time Gay fired the pistol shot, be was in?
sane, and, therefore, not responsible for the
act, and, consequently, that he did not com?
mit suicide within the meaning of that term
as used in the policy.
"In view of ihe concession of the defend?
ants the court charged Hie Jury that If Gay
killed himself in a lit ol insanity which over?
powered his consciousness, reason, memory
and will, and thus acted from a mere blind
and uncontrollable impulse, the company was
Hubie. On Ihe other hand ihe court did not
accede to the claim ol the plaintiff, bul in?
structed the jury that il (?ay .*as conscious of j
the act he was comuililing, intended to com
rnltll,and understood its nature and conse?
quences, his death was by suicide within ihe
meaning ol the policy, and that whether he
was capable or understanding ihe moral as
""Vi1? de*?d< ttUtl of distinguishing be
ria? " a"U wro,,i;' was who"* Immale
Tbe ruling of the court favored the inter?
pretation of the law as laid down by the
couusel for the company; but the verdict of
tie jury was for the plaintiff. As most
junes take a btntimeutal view of suicide,
and bold to the opinion that tho element ol
insanity enters into almot every case in
which a man puts an end to bis own life, it
is very evident that the suicide clause in life
policies is virtually, if not practically, of no
effect, and that, as a gerjeral rule, whenever
a policy-bolder kills himself, the company
will be held liable.
From this tendency on the part of juries
to. And insanity in every act of Belf-killing,
it has been suggested that the companies, in
order to protect themselves, "shall insert a
"clause declaring the policy void, if the per
"sou upon whose life the risk is taken dies
"by his own hand, whether sane or insane,
"conscious or unconscious." It is doubtful,
however, whether companies embodying in
their policies a clause so sweeping, would
not, in the long run, lose more than they
would gain. The number of wilful, delibe?
rate, conscious suicides is comparatively
small, and it would probably be more to the
interest of the companies to pay such losses
without contesting them in the courts. They
might easily be covered by letting the actua?
ries include them hereafter in their calcula?
tions of the average death rate, and by
altering the schedule of charges to corres?
A Carpet-Bagger** Opinion of a Colored
[From the Washington Chronicle ]
That a substantial and decided reorganiza?
tion ol the Republican party is needed in the
several States of the South is unquestionable.
Between fraud and Imbecility, or rather by
both, the management is ruinous.
In South Carolina, such a man as Lieuten?
ant-Governor Ransler is totally unfit to be
chairman ol a ward committee, much less of j
the State committee. He Is weak, vacillating,
ignorant, conceited and obstinate. He is on
both sides or every question. He is forever
assuring everybody that he exactly agrees
with them, and explaining to everybody how
it was that within a very short time he had
said, in public speech, what Beems to each to
be in direct and irreconcilable hostility. He is
a perpetual apology.
And so of dozens of others, having little
brains, no education, and less than no charac?
ter. These men must be ousted and better
men be put In their places. Let theTeorgani
zation go on._
