DOUBLE SHEET THREE CENTS.
TIIE JOINT flIGH COMMISSION.
. Basis of Settlement of the Alabama Claim
Agreed Upon England's Responsibility
for the Alabama's Depredations Con
ceded Final Decisions to be Made Wit hin
It Is understood that the Joint High Commission
lave concluded a convention containing tne basis
of a settlement of the Alabama claims. It would seem
that the question for adjustment pending between
the United States and 4reat Britain are considered
separately, and the plan proposal for their seal- -
went Is to be embodied In distinct conventions or I
treaties, which, or coursn, ant sublect on oar side to
the ratification of the Senate. It is said that the
convention for the settlement of the Alabama
claims has been signed by all the cornmlimloners;
that it la divided Into eight articles, substantially as
First. The high contracting parties agree to be
bonnd Id their conduct by the rule that a nation
shall be responsible for depredations committed on
a friendly power by a vessel fitted out and manned
at a neutral port.
Second. The high contracting parties shall here
after enforce this rale in their treaties with all for
eign powers, and will endeavor to induce the adop
tion of this rule as a principle of international law.
Third. The class or claims known as Alaoama
claims shall be submitted to a commission to conHlst
of five members, one to be appointed by the Presi
dent of the United States, with the advice and con
sent of the Senate, one by the (jaeen of Great
Britain and Ireland, one by the Emperor of Brazil,
one by the President of the Republto of Switzer
land, and one by the King of Italy. This
commission shall meet at Washington, within six
months after the ratification of this convention.
The commission shall decide the responsibility of
Great Britain in each case and award the damages
that may be found. If either of the three powers
lst mentioned falls to appoint a commissioner the
vacancy shall be filled by the King of Sweden and
Fourth. In case of a vacancy In the commission
the vacancy shail be tilled In the same manner as
the original appointment.
Fifth. The members or tho commission shall be
sworn not to be prejudiced in advance, and to de
cide each claim on the evidence presented to them,
being guided, however, by the rule laid down In the
first article of this convention, namely, that a
nation shall be responsible for depredations commit
ted on a friendly power by a vessel fitted oat and
manned at a neutral port. All claims shall be
filed within the commission witnln six months after
their meeting, unless good reason be shown
for delay, in which chub the commission may
extend the time for the presentation of claims.
Final decisions upon all claims roust be made within
two years from the time of the first meeting of the
commission. All sums of money In payment of
claims shall be paid in gold at Washington in Bitch
manner as the commission may direct- No decision
of the commission shall be binding on elttier of the
nigh contracting parties unless agreed to by one of
the two commissioners representing those high
Sixth. This article empowers the commission to
employ all necessary clerks and assistants, provides
that the expenses of the commission shall oe borne
equally by the high contracting parties, and that all
bills shall be paid on the vouchers or the commis
sioners, and enters into the details with reference to
Seventh. This article provides that In case the
commission should fail to agree pn any speclilc
claims, such claims shall be referred to a board of
three members, one to be appointed by the Presi
dent of the United States, with the sanction of tne
Senate, one by the Queen of Great Britain and Ire
land, and one by the Emperor of Russia. This board
shall meet at New York, within six months after the
adjournment or the other commission, shall take
testimony at length and decide as to tacts, amounts
due, etc. This provision is evidently Intended to
cover doubtful cases, with reference to which the
other commission haa not time to take the necessary
Eighth. The last article relates to the expenses of
the board last named, and Is similar to article sixth
In all essential particulars.
Such, it is said, is the basis of agreement which
the Joint High Commission has come to for the set
tlement of the Alabama claims.
They Were Not In Consequence of Sir.
Bootli'u Senftltlveness to Criticism.
The report in the various morning papers yester
day of the obtaining of an order from the Supreme
Court requiring Mr. Edwin Booth to show cause
why Paul P. Nicholson and A. K. Cazauran should
not be admitted to his theatre upon paying the
regular admittance fee and behaving themselves,
was so worded as to convey the impression that the
refusal to admit Messrs. Nicholson and Cazauran
was in consequence of certain denunciatory articles
contained In a paper repectively owned
and edited by them. In correction of this, Mr. J.
H. Magonlgle, the business manager of Booth's
Theatre. inHlsts that the refusal to admit these per
sons was not based upon any criticism of Mr. Booth's
actios or Mr. Booth's character published by them.
and that the order, which emanate 1 from him, la
conseauenceof which they were refused admission.
was meant to apply to only one of them, and was
Issued as applied to him because Mr. Magonlgle be
lieved htm to be an Improper person, who should be
excluded from the theatre as a matter of justice
and protection towards the ladies and gentlemen
constituting tne rest or tne audience.
Mr. Magonlgle also detailed yesterday the bust
nees transactions between himself and Messrs,
Nicholson and Cazauran which had led to the hos
tility of the latter towards Mr. Booth's establish
ment, lie said thatsoaie time ago Mr. Nicholson
was publishing a programme for circulation in the
various theatres, and applied to him for the exclu
sive right to circulate such programme In Booth's
Theatre; that an arrangement to this effect was
entered into, and soon after Mr. Nicholson asked
Mr. M agonic le for a certificate that his publica
tion was the only programme authorized to be
circulated in that theatre; that the certificate
was given, and that then Mr. Nicholson
printed this certificate at the head of his
columns (tnougU he had said ha only wanted It to
help him in canvassing for advertisements), thus
making the management of Booth's Theatre to some
extent resDonslble for the contents of the pro
gramme ; that soon after the programme commenced
attacking the luauatiem.'Utof Mblo'sOirdeu, upon
which Mr. Magonlgle sent for Messrs. Nicholson aud
Cazauran and told them mat may must uisconuue
such attacks; that they promised to do so, but soon
after made p. personal attack in the programme upon
Mr. Theodore Moss, of Wallact'a Theatre; that
he agala Bent for them and warned them
to dUoontlnue their attacks, which they again
promised to do; that they next attacked Mr. Lester
YVallack. were again warned to desist, and again
promised to do so : that after all this they violently
attacked Miss NiUsou, with whom Mr. Magonlgle
was at that verv time negotiating an engagement
at Booth's Theatre, thus directly Interfering with
and in luring the business of that theatre; that upon
this Mr. Magonlgle wrote them a note withdraw
ing the patrouagu of Booth's Theatre frtm their pro
gramme; that his coarse) In excluding the pro
gramme from the theatre was foilo od by every
other nianacer in the t uy, thus raising the pro
Srauiae to suspend publication; aud that then
iet-srs. Nicholson and Cazauran started a small
weeklv Darter, and soon after devoted sixteen
commas of it to an anonymous article purporting
to be a criticism of Booth's "iUcuelisu," but filled
with the Brussest personal abuse of Mr. Booth. Mr.
Magonlgle said further, that since the termination
of his business relations with Mr. Cazauran he bad
evidence of bis bad character, and upon that ground,
and that alone, bad ixsued the oreer to deny him
admission to the theatre, aud that the application
of tha'. order Mr. Nicholson was tne result of ajmls.

Alleged Malpractice Professor Gross VI u-
District Court Judtie Lyni.
This court was to-day neaped with the case of
Henrietta Fisher, colored, vs. Professor U. D. Uross
and Dr. Samuel W. Gross, which was aa action to
recover damages for the death of plaintitrs husband,
alleged to have been caused by malpractice on the
part of the defendants. Thedeceased, Thaddeus
havens, an lmeuigeni young coiorea man, wnne
serving as a soldier, in June, 1864, received a wound
in tne ngnt tnign, wnicn necessitated an amputa
tion jUBt above the knee, and he afterwards wore an
artlflclal leg upon the stump.
After tne close or tne war ne registered nimseir
as a student-at-law In- the oillce of J. Wagner Jer-
mon, of this city, and then attended lectures at the
Howard College in Washington. In 1S67 he married
the plaintiff, but in tne course oi a year ne deserted
her. Returning here in June, 1869, to attend the
funeral of bis brother, he became reconciled to his
wife and lived with tier several weeks, when they
atra In senarated. intending, however, to resume
their married relations when his studies should be
completed. The amputation had caused an
aneurism 10 lorm just, oeiow me joint oi tne tnign
bone, which gave rise to a worrisome thumping and
pulsation In the artery, and this was aggravated by
a fall from a car In Baltimore. After going to see
several medical gentlemen he called upon Professor
Gross and had the operation for aneurism per.
formed, the Professor operating himself, attended
by his son, Dr. Samuel uross, aud several
other eminent surgeons. This Is a capital
operation aud one of the most critical known to sur
crerv. There were several methods of treatment re
cognized la the profession, and in this case that of
tvincr up the artery was adopted as the safest. The
oneration was all that skill and care could make it.
The patient was taKen irom tne operation room or
the Jeii'erson College to his residence In Addison
street, where he was constantly attended by Profes
sor uross, wno prescrmeu ior nini, ana oy un,
Samuel Gross, Andrews, Newcomb, Saunders, John
son, and Allls. and nursed by students of the col
lege. There was no iacK oi attention, ior some oi
these gentlemen were always with him, day and
night, and l'rofessor Gross left orders to have the
nearest Dhvslelan sent for In case bleeding should
occur, and when It did take place a physician was
promptly in attendance, rne great danger attending
these operations Is the secondary hemorrhage,
and after the lapse of several days the hemorrhage
happened, and was checked. Fifteen minutes before
death came Dr. Samuel Gross visited the patient,
and shaking him by the hand said, "Usher, you are
not going to die ; yon know me." This was the onlv
specification of malpractice In the patient's room
that was alleged, and when Mrs. Fisher Bald ha was
acting too raoeiy, me jjoctor saia, -jno; i tnougat
he would recoffnize me." The services of Professor
Gross and all the others were without compensa
tion. Before death risner sent ror Mr. Jermoa and
said that if he died he wished the matter to be in
vestlgated, and Professor Gross to be sued for
heavy damages. Alderman Nichols was procured
to take his dying declamatloa, which the
Conrt ruled not to b evidence. The Coroner
held an inquisition, wnicn exonerated the sur
geons. Sabsequently, against the express wish
of the mother of the deceased, the body was disin
terred by order of Mr. Jermon, aud re-examined by
Dr. Dun, wiio was unaoie to discover irom it any
evidence or malpractice, or evmi tne cause of (feats.
the veins naving been removed irom me stump by
the Coroner's physician. Suit was then instituted
by Mr. jermon, according, as ne said, to tho dying
request of Fisher. The following is the substance
of;the medical testimony submitted against Profes
sor and Dr. uross:

the Philadelphia University I cannot tell what I
wonld have done In this case; I might have elevated

tion for aneurism is a very dangerous ene; after
snch an operation I should suppose students would

double knot on the ligature and some a half not; It
Is simply a matter of judgment prompted by the
circumstances of each ease.
