JOT7BXAt,9 CrOM ilUBBENT TOPICS COMPILED EVEBT DAT FOB THB EVENING TELEGRAPH. PROVIDENT SUICIDES. From the K Y. Tribune. The plan of raising the wind by stopping one's own Las ceased to be merely a ghastly joke. A desperate gamester is said to have sold his head to an anatomist for money enough to ploy a final stake, and, after losing, was judged, by a jury of honor among his friends to have committed a gross violation of all the conveyance by blowing a hole through a piece of propeity to which he had no lorger any claim. The suicides of the present day exhibit equal deliberation and an equally confused perception of legal and moral obligation. Several men of late have taken the" last relics of thoir scanty fortunes and effected an insurance upon their lives, and then have killed themselves for the benefit of their families. " In all cases so far the courts have held the companies liable for the amount of the insurance, regarding suicide as an accident of insanity, and one among the accidents against which this provident measure is designed to guard. If, however, these affairs exhibit a tendency to reproduce themselves too frequently, it may well be seriously considered whether some legisla tion is not necessary to restrict the responsi bility of the companies, so that an institution so useful and so beneficial shall not become an encouragement to self-slaughter. One of the most singular cases of this kind bas recently occurred in Memphis. A Hebrew named Spears, a small shopkeeper, who had, by the close and sagacious application for which his race is remarkable, accumulated a little property worth some $5000, in an unfor tunate hour was induced to gamble for a small amount,' which he lost. Not being able to endure the thought of losing money without an equivalent, he wont on for some months with the fatal idea that luck would turjQ and f course lost all he was worth. He took the precaution to insure his life for .j000 for the benefit of his wife, and then went through to the end of his means. On the last day of his life he asked his wife for some money. After remonstrating with him for his course of life she gave him five dollars, with which he trudged away to the den where his happiness bad been squandered, and played for some time with unusual success; but at last the coil was tightened upon him, and he was penni less. On his way home at night he stopped at a tavern and wrote a heart-broken letter to his wife, in which the sordid little cares of business are curiously mingled with bursts of passionate grief. He sends a tender farewell to his "good and true wife, and his brave boy Bennie," and takes care to say that he "owes Mr. Baldwin five dollars," against which he offsets "a show-case, some bed-linen, and the large dolls." "Now I see," he cries, "what a loving and good wife is. I was the villain; can I answer before God ? But, dear wife, it is better for you.". Here he reverts to the monetary standard of valuation. "If I die, then you receive $5000; but should I have lived, our whole capital would have been but $300." This is an alternative in the face of which there is no possibility of hesitation. Although his heart is bleeding at the separation, it would not be possible to resist such a bargain. "Zum letzten Male, lebt wohl! lebt wohl! I have paid the rent up to th 14th of July." With this strange letter in his pocket he went home, and in the morning was so unusually gay as to excite the surprise of his family, lie had swallowed poison, and was as excited as a child at the prospect of his journey; he died apparently without regret. ...... There is a widespread oonf usion of moral perception in regard to such performances, which is not only the predisposing cause to most of these suicides, but also influences the general feeling of sympathy for the survivors as against the defrauded corporations. It goes beyond that natural and whimsioal fanoy of the boatman who thought himself drowning, and whose last reflection as he went under was that it was a good joke on the insurance companies. It tends to place the insurer and the insured on . the footing of hostility, in stead of co-operation, where they really stand. An Arkansas gentleman tersely ex pressed this distorted view of the case when, declining the overtures of an agent, he said he "had played about every game there was on the cards, but wouldn't go into a thing where he had got to die to win." There is no other idea in the wretched mind of poor Spears, as he prepares to perfect his title to that five thousand dollars, which be considers his own. His death ia only a necessary for mula to enable him to draw the money. The disregard for life whioh, in Oriental countries, finds its highest ' expression in duels by hari-kari and in vicarious executions, has long been regarded as marking the most radical point of difference between the East era and the Western mind. But if we are to go on in the way which has been indicated in the last twelvemonth young metaphysicians taking poison for purposes of disoovery, lovers who fear separation killing themselves with no settled arrangements for housekeep ing anywhere else, and steady fathers of family committing suicide in the interests of their bank account how long will it ' be that we cap look with wonder or disgust mpon our antipodes, where, as a recent traveller re quests us to believe, the height of praotioal jesting consists in a suicide on a neighbor's property, so as to give him the amusement of a trial for murder? i . . ENGLAND AND GERMANY. From the jr. Y. World. ' ' ' ' , t It seems to be admitted by the leading press of England that the Prince-Premier of the new German empire has really undertaken to ne gotiate with Earl Granville for the surrender to Germany of the Island of Heligoland. ' If this is true Prince Bismarck must count rather upon the prestige won by Germany in her recent war with France, and upon the dis position of Earl Granville's party in England to keep the peace "at any price," than either the inherent right of Germany in this case or upon her power to enforce such a right, for the success of his demand. England undoubtedly holds Heligoland to day by quite as good a tenure as that by which Germany holds Holstein, and nothing is less clear than the capacity of Germany to engage in a successful conflict with England. The strength of Germany is in her army, of which there is no reason whatever to suppose that she icould "mobilize" by sea any considerable portion, in the face of the hostility of the first naval power of the world. If Germany . could count either upon ' the forbearance of France or the alliance of llussia, an attempt on her part to force England at this time to the wall miht he more probable than it can now be held to be. But it is clear that nothing can be rafely predicated of the French until their government u reorganized on an enduring basis, and it is hardly less clear that no Rus sian Emperor,, whatever may be bia personal Affinities with the princes of Germany, can safely venture on a policy the effect of which would be to give Germany absolute control of the Baltic - It remains, therefore, to be seen only whether Earl Granville and the Government of whioh be is a member are sufficiently impressed by the peril of their own position of a great foreign war to seek an escape from that peril through a still more perilous abdication of England's posi tion as a great power. In this connection it is worth noting that Blackwood' t clever parable of the "Battle of Dorking" has just been reinforced by the English Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr. Robert Lowe, in a striking speech on the apparent safety and the possible peril of England. If it is in some respects a foible of Mr. Lowe that he is the most un-English of English statesmen, it is also in some re spects his forte. If he worries his party and helps its enemies by a disposition to treat the solemn traditions of English culture and English society as disrespectfully as Sir David Brewster treated the North Pole, his Australian experience and his cosmopolite temper enable him to see England somewhat as men outside of England see her. In the speech to which we allude Mr. Lowe urged upon the House of Commons continuance in a steady reduction of the na tional debt as a duty which the passing Eng lishmen of to-day imperatively owe to the enduring England of which they are citizens, in view of the gathering clouds along the Eu ropean horizon. He made a very felicitous comparison between the condition of England and of Europe at the close of the war of the American Revolution and at the close of the Franco-Prussian war. "Upon the conclusion of Mr. Titt's commercial treaty of 178." with the France of Louis XVI," said Mr. Lowe, "everything seemed as if England was enter ing on an era of prosperity." But what Eng land really was entering on at that time were the loDg and terrible wars with the French republio and the French empire neither of them then so much as dreamed of by the wisest statesmen of the world. Mr. Lowe might have pushed his com. parison even further than he did. At the close of the Crimean war, in 1 ."(!, England seemed to have strengthened herself against any probability of danger from abroad quite as solidly as she seemed to have strengthened herself against such dangers by the magnifi cent triumphs of the elder Pitt, confirmed to her in 1702 by the peaoe of Fontainebleau. The prostration of Russia in 185G seemed to deliver her from all risk of her position in Asia, as the surrender of Canada by France in 1702 seemed to deliver her from all risk of her position in America. Yet thirteen years after the signing of the treaty of Fontaine bleau that great war in the West began which ended only with the downfall of the British American empire. And fourteen years after the signing of the treaty of Paris Russia has recovered by a single bold diplomatio move all the ground she had lost in the disastrous war of the Crimea. Nay, only seven years after the imaginary pacification of Europe by the treaty of 1785 we find the great English Minister openly saying in the House of Com mons that he thought "England might safely reckon on ten years of unbroken peace;" and two years before this, in 1700, Edmund Burke himself had pronounced France to be "self extinguished in Europe," and upon the strength of this verdict had recommended "the speedy reduction of the English war establishment." Mr. Lowe, however, has reasons to offer tot Lis warning fresher and more striking even than any reference to the shortsighted ness of wise men as proved by the past. He bids England take heed to herself for the single and sufficient motive that she has ceased to be confronted by a congeries of powers, none of them exactly strong enough to assail her if unsupported; and that she finds herself to-day faoe to faoe with three or four colossal States, any one of them abun dantly able to grapple with her single-handed. The old maxim of "Divide and conquer" has ceased to be applicable with the absorption of the smaller States of Europe. What England has now to provide for is the contingency of a conflict with such a power as Russia, or the new German empire, or the United States. In the wars of the last century and in the Napoleonic wars the principle of coalition played a great part, and diplomaoy had ample scope and verge enough in the making and the breaking up of combinations of States. The Crimean war proved, by the attitude of Austria, how much ' more difficult it is ' to effect a coalition between two or three great powers than between one great power and several smaller States. The Franco-German war inaugurates a new era of colossal duels, and the power which is unprepared to sustain such a duel single-handed is In very serious peril of its position as a great -power if not of its existence as a nation. Hence . the timorous attitude of Austria at this moment; and hence, as Mr. Lowe conceives, the urgent necessity for England of a reorganization of her. financial and her fighting force. - Another motive for anxiety on the part of England Mr. Lowe touched upon more lightly. It is the decay, made manifest by the internal condition of France during the late war, of what used to be the spirit of patriotism in Europe; . and the tendency of classes . to array themselves on the lines of class sympathy in obedience to class interests. It was believed by all the world down to the outbreak of the recent Parisian civil war that the 'French feeling" of Frenchmen was stronger than the corres pondent national feeling of any nation in Europe. . . Events have dissipated that belief. Bat is there any good ground for believing that the divorce of class from class has made less pro gress in England than on the Continent ? Is there not reason even to believe that it has made more progress in England than on the Continent? ' . . - ! REVIVAL OF THE SLAVE TRADE. From the K. Y. Timet. . When the account was lately received from China , of the shocking catastrophe whereby nearly six hundred coolies were destroyed who were pent up in the hold of a burning ship, the question naturally arose as to why these miserable beings were so confined. The tragedy itself equals any of the worst horrors of the Middle Passage that roused the virtu ous fury of Wilberforce, and there Is, we fear, searoely less reason for the interference of ! the civilized and philanthropic world in the one case than there was in the other. It is not generally known that, beside the trade in coolies, another similar traffic is now carried on which even exceeds it in nefarious injustice. It is the old story of cruelty, despo tism, and selfishness, stricken down ia one quarter, appearing and flourishing under a new name in another. We are assured that for years pa6t vessels have been fitted up for the ostensible purpose of trading with the Sooth Sea Islands, but in reality for kidnap ping the the finiplft. minded Polynesians and delivering them into bondage. There is a great demand for labor among the Queens land planters, and they are willing, it is de rlarttl, to pay a good price for the wretch si I inlanders thus wickedly obtained. Of c auras, it does not answer to call these people slaves. The are styled laborers, and their toil, by a polite fiction, is supposed to be voluntary. Indeed, it has been generally thought that colonial legislation provided for the welfare and right treatment of the im ported hands, whether coolies or Polynesians. The theory was that these laborers were kept only for three yean, at the expiration of which time they were sent home, each receiving a final sum of ninety dollars. The practioe was to get the unfortunate savage in debt for clothes and small luxuries extravagantly charged for, so that at the end of his term, instead of getting his discharge and his ninety dollars, the poor fellow wenld find himself in debt to his master, and forced to begin a fresh period of servitude to work it out. It is true that in 18G8 the Queensland au thorities passed a Foreign Immigration act, which provides "that no person shall Import Polynesians unless he enters Into a bond of ts.wo, with two sureties, to pre vent kidnapping; and a further bond of tr0 for each Immigrant, to return lilra to his country at the end of three years; nor may any native be landed In Queensland unless he understands the agreement and has entered Into It voluntarily." But this act, we are advised, is systematiq ally and easily violated, so that it in effect renders matters worse for the laborers than they were before. What with men of straw for sureties, the enforced consent, under pressure of debt,, of the immigrant to a waiver of his bond of return, and other facile devices, the act practically affords no protection at all. Meanwhile, the treatment of the immigrants on the seas is most in human. The commander of a man-of-war, the Daphne, that recently boarded one of these modern slave-ships, discovered over one hundred natives in a state of com plete nudity, although the act expressly pro vided that each one shall be furnished with a shirt, a pair of trousers, and a blanket. This gentleman, Commander Palmer, states it as his opinion that all these unhappy people were kidnapped, and says, further, that the ship was fitted in every respect as a slave trader, irons alone excepted. It is to be hoped that a knowledge of these facts by the English uovernment will lead to the application of such prompt and stringent remedies as may put an end to proceedings so heinous.
