Myilerle. of Italian Crime.
EXTRAORDINARY MJKNE IS A FLORENCE
THEATRE —AN ACTOR SHOT DEAD ON THE
STAGE —TEBRHII.E MURDER IN A MILAN
Ad awful occurrence took place a few
evenings! ago at the Principle Umberto
theatre, in Florence, during (he perfor
mance of an equtßtrian spectacle, entitled
"Tho Capture of Cipriano la Gala." At
the culminating point of the piece there is
a grand engagement between a band of
brigands and a party of sharpshooters, the
former stationed upon a group of rocks,
and the latter on the level ground. Just
as tho combat was at its height one of the
sharpshooters fell, and in so natural a
manner that tbo act was greeted with an
enthusiastic round of applause. A mo
ment afterwards, however, it was plain
that something had MM wrong. A cou
ple of men rushed upon the stage and
lifted the body of the prostrate actor,
when it was at ouce seen that ho was lying
in a pool of gore. Cries and shrieks arose
from every part of the house ; women
fainted and men jumped upon the stage.
Meanwhile the orcliestra continue! to play,
and many of tho performsra continued
their parts; others* men and horses, rushed
about in wild confusion.
At last the manager, pale as death,
came forward, and his aspect at once
hushed tho house into silence. An unto
ward accident (he said) had just occurred,
and the representation must at once be
brought to an end. Tho house was imme
diately cleared, but crowds lingered for
some time about the neighborhood of the
theatre, and it was soon known that tho
m»n who had so "naturally" dropped on
(he boards had been shot through the
bead, and was a corpse before tbe first
echoos of the public applause could have
readied his ear. In the Italian theatres
certain gentlemen, who exercise their office
by turns, are answerable for everythirg
connected with tho good order of tin
representation, the taking of proper pre
cautions against accidents, eVo.
On the evening in question the offioiul
on duty had superintended the loading ol
the firearms, and is ready to take oaththtt
they were charged with powder only.
Tbe bullet, therefore, that shattered tbe
skull of tbe poor sharpshooter in the
mimic fight was presumably slipped in
one of the barrels after tho guns had been
distributed among the company ; but by
whom and for what purpose? This is the
mystery to which justice is endeavoring to
find the clue. It should be added that the
King was, according to his custom, preset t
at the entertainment, having a great passion
for all horse spectacles, and occupied his
usual place in a box close to the stage, in
tho cimpauy of tho Bella Rosina and her
daughter, the Marchioness Spinola. The
Siot, however, supposing it inteution.il,
uld not have been directed at his Maj-sty,
r it was fired in tho opposite direction,
From later accounts it would appear
at this sad event was the result of an ac
lent. The same certaiuly cannot be
id of the mysterious deed of blood cum
mitted a short time ago in Milan, Twc
foreigners, who represented themselves ai
just arrived in the city, put up at the Ho
tel de Villo, once the first bouse in Milan
and still the favorite of diplomatists ant
"travellers of distinction." One of tin
strangers entered his name in the visitors
book as Krassovischi, a Pole, and the othe:
as Kauntonsoff, a nativo of Russia. Thej
took possession of two bed rooms upoi
the same floor, and, on the following day
left tho house together for a short time.—
Od their return Kauntoczoff was observer,
to enter his companion's sleeping room
and sometime aft...—•••>- —■ -*-
stairs with his c.irpet-bag. lie gave five
francs to the waiter, observing that he was
suddenly called away by urgent business,
begged him not to disturb Krassovischi,
who was unwell and wanted rest. The
request is curiously suggestivo of tho rel
ative political position of the countries to
which the men belong, or profess to be
At 9 in the evening, four hours after tho
departure of the Russian, a man came to
the Ville with a parcel for Krassovischi,
who had not been seen since the early af
ternoon. The waiter went up stairs, and
found the door of the bed-room locked.
No answer being given to a repeated sum
mons to open, the door was forced, and the
lifeless body of the Pole discovered lying
on the bed. He had been strangled with
a leathern strap, which still encircled his
neck. His features were dreadfully dis
torted, and he had received several heavy
blows in the face from some blunt instru
ment. Dr. Capelli, who was at once
called in, certified that tho unfortunate
man had been dead for some hours, and as
his appearance denoted a fair share of
bodily strength, it is suggested that he
must have been drugged and assassinated
when in a state of insensibility. A. search
bad been instituted for Kauntonzoff, but
hitherto without effect.
FiQHTiNa Women in France.—During
the events of the French revolution of
1789, many women distinguished them
selves by participating in the most sangui
nary scenes, as well as conflicts, of that
bloody period. AmoDg these weie Thero
igoe, of Mericourt, who assisted at the
storming of the Biistile, commanded, with
the title of General, the Third Army Corps
of the Faubourgs of Paris, led a mob of
women from Paris to Versailles at the time
the King was carried thence to the Capita),
and rode on horseback at the side of Jour
dau, on the return of the revolutionists.
By tho side of Thewgnc in these exploits
figured two other celebrated woiueu of
Paris, Louise Audti, called the Queen cf
the Markets, and Jeanne Lc-combe. In
1830 and 1848, many wntnen took part in
the revolutionary utrugjale, helping to
build barricades and defending tbem,
gun in hand, ttutil shot down by tbe at
In thsse later days of Paris, a large num
ber of women have manifested their hero-
ism in scenes of slaughter. They have
fought with the National Guards, and
many were killed and wounded atNeuilly.
A cantiniere, wounded in the head, retired
to have her wound drcsssd, and then re
turned to the fight. An energetic woman,
fighting in the ranks of the Sixty-lirst bat
talion, killed several gendarmes. At the
plateau Cliatillon a cautinieie with the
Nationals loaded her gun and fired at the
Versailllsts repeatedly, and without cessa
tion, and was almost the last to retire
when the Nationals retreated. The cau-
tiniere of the Sixty-eighth battalion at tho
opening of a recent action was killed in
stantly by a piece of exploding shell.
Among the most courageous of these wai
like women was the wife of one of the
Communist commanders, General Eudes,
who went with her huuband into battle.
On the evening of tlie third of April, tight
bodies of National Guards were brought in
after a fi_ht with the Viigailies troops.

of Chicago, on tho 21st day of May, ISGC, make tho
following declaration of principlei:
and to prevent the people of such Status from being
remitted to a state of anarchy.
2. The guaranty by Cougrc-tss cf equal suffrage to
all loyal nten at the South was demanded by every
consideration of public safety, of giatitude, aud of
Justice, and must be maintained; while the question
of suffrage in all the loyal States properly belongs
to tho people of those States.
3. We denounce ail forms of repudiation bb a na
tion*! crime; aud the national honor requires the
payment of the public Indebtedness In th* utter
most good faith to all creditors at homo and abroad,
not only according to letter, but tho spirit of tbo
laws under which it was contracted.
4. It is duo to the labor of the nation that tax*
tiooshould be equalized,and reduced ai rapidly as
the nationalfaitu wilt permit.
5. The national dob:, contracted aa it has been (or
the preneivatiou of the Union lor all timo to eooio,
■bould be extended over a fair period for -ademption;
and it is the duty of Congress to reduco the rate ot
interest thereon, whenever it cau be honestly dove.
0. That the best policy to diminish our burden of
debt is to so improve our credit that capitalists will
seek to loan us money at lower rates of interest than
we now pay, aud must coutiuuo to pay so lung as re
pudiation, partial or total, opcu or covert, is threat
ened or suspecteJ.
7. The Government of the Uuited States should be
administered with tho strictest economy; and the
corruptions when nave been so shamefully nursed
and f .stored by Audrew Johnson call loii-ly for radi
8. We profoundly deploro the untimely and tragic
dtath of Abraham Lincoln, aud regret the accession
to the Presidency of Andrew Johnson, who has acted
treacherously to the people who elected him aud the
cause ho was pledged to support; who has usurped
high legislative and judicial luuctions; who has re
fused to execute the laws; who has used his figh
offlce to induce other officers to ignore and violate
the laws; who has employed his executive powers
to render insecure the property, the peaco, libcity
and life of the citizen; who lias abuseu the pirdou

lata war, there were uono entitled to more especial
honor than the bravo soldiers and teamen who en
dured the hardships of campaign and cruiee, aud iui
poiilled their lives in the .ervioe of the country;

11. Foreign Immigration, which iv the past Ins
added so much to the wealth, doviloporueut, and re
sources, and increase of p awer to ibis republic, the
asylum of the oppressed of all nations, should be
fostered and encouraged by a liberal aud Just uolicy.

h-th it whom handled theui with masterly sk II ard
. lie p.ows entered were the Dixie two horse iTgut
and left-band plow., and the -»att two-horse left
hand. Soon after the trial commenced, Ihe beam of
tho Dixie r gilt hand broke In two and was laid
aside, the contest being narrowed to the Watt left
hand and Dixie left-hand. The soil first selected
was a stubble loam without soil; but as th. pi >w»
were nea, and did not turn in consequence of the
roughness of tbe castings, after a short tilal ft wan
decided to take th.m into au ither Hold wrier.- tbe
soil was a well-trodden, tenacious clay, » ith a timo
thy sod cove od with vegetation md with draw.
The plows here performed their work admirably,
cutting and uining cl.ar without choking.
As the Dixie was a new comer, as the contest
waxed «arui most of tbe judges took hold of it to
run personally its practical working. Wliilo there

Ihe award of the Judges was unanimously in favor
of the Dixie ou the following grounds:
