The question which at present agitates the
minds of the colored citizens Is, What shall bo
done with the Southern Immigrants! It Is very
dllllcult to solve. There are now over 2,500 Im
migrants In the city, and most of them are being
maintained by church congregations. So far,
little assistance has been rendered by white
people, who must now bestir themselves In this
cause, or remain Idly by while hundreds of
human being* suffer. The burden which the
congregations of the Eleventh Street, Eighth
Street) and Lower Baptist Churches are bearing
cannot bo longer borne unaided. During the
last throe weeks some 61.500 have been ex
pended, which have been collected from people
who are none too well off.
ADDITIONAL AFFIDAVITS.
Tho following additional alfidavils touching
tbo condition of affairs which has driven these
negroes from their homos In tho South to the
free State of Kansas were obtained by a Globe-
Democrat reporter and a companion Notary
yesterday:
SMILE AUBPITZ
testified as follows: My acre In 82 years; for Uto
post few years I hnvo hccn living In the States
° i Louisiana; 1 was clerking ami
peddling through the country, so I had a good
opportunity of seeing tire treatment received by
the colored people down South; the condition
of the colored people there Is very low: If they
go n oa store they get cheated, If they deal
with the planters they got cheated; on election
days the Democrats are at the polls with arms
mul prevent the colored people from voting;
during the past year through the different par
-lin s, . Louisiana colored people have been
killed by the while people; I have seen It with
my own eyes. During the last Presidential
election, at Columbus, Tex., one stock-dealer
...ii . c °' orccl ni °n and was never arrested;
killed them for not voting the ticket ho gave
I m ,n »’ " U, V were In h(s employ; I saw these men
killed myself; 1 was standing next to the white
manLislfall, In fit, James Parish. Louisiana. I saw
white men standing at the polls with cocked re
volvers, and t hey wouldn't let the niggers come
there. I have seen shooting there at St. James
I arlsh during that same election,—white men
shooting niggers. When a colored man works
u plantation on shares ond raises say eight bales
ot cotton, the planter sells Jt, atid not the nlg
gor : mid he will cheat him by saying the weight
ol the hale Is less than It really Is; and, when he
goes to pet his money from the store of the
p unter, ho buys his provisions and other arti
cles, and Is cheated In the weight, etc. My
opinion Is, that the colored people are doing
tight in leaving the South, and that the South
wII be ruined when they do go, because the
white men can't do the work the negroes do tn
the field, there ore thousands of acres in
Louisiana lying Idle, without any crops, because
the owners won’t rent the land at reasonable
rates, the planters charge 100 ranch rent to
Hie niggers, and, before giving It to them
cheaper, they will let the land lie Idle.
JACOB STEPHENS
testified: I reckon 1 am noout 23 years-old.
Last j car I lived In Hinds County, Miss.; I have
been working there, raising cotton uml corn. I
rented, together with my oldest brother and
mater, about forty acres; wo paid about $lO an
acre In cotton. Wo just lived and breathed
along; could barely live, and that was all. The
condition of the people In the South is awful
had; they are treated awful bad by the white
people. 1 left the South became I couldn’t
make a living and was treated so badly by the
whites, and the white people got so they would
kill the colored people up.. I think about two
years ago lu September, on Sidney Whitehead’s
place, In Urnngc County, Miss., my brother
Charley mid father were shot In my presence.
*lhe white people had hccn over to Mr,
Doffcr’s homo and killed him on the
same place, 1 reckon about good davllght.
They killed him because he held In with the
black people. Ho was a white man, and I and
my brother were over to Mr. Iloffcr’s house
that day, and us wc came home, going across u
little, cotton patch, uml as we got near toaho
homo, some of the women who were with us
said, “ There comes the while folks,” and, as
they said Hint, my brother walked on ahead of
me. and I followed on after , him pretty perily,
and wo got about ten steps of the door, I sup
posed, when they said, *• Hull, you—
— , wo didn’t exactly hall, and
stepped a few steps further, and the white folks
commenced shooting, and they shot my brother
In the neck uml burnt his shirt-collar, ho was so
eloao to the gun; ami ofter they shot him ho
felt, and raised and weut a step further, and
they shot him right through the side and killed
him; he said. *• 0 Lord l” that was all he said;
the white folks entno. up and turned him
over with their lent after ho'was dead;
my father wag lu the. house, and they
made him open the door and , como
out; thoy led him out to about the middle of
the yard and told him to stop there and toll
them all ho knew (I reckon they meant the
club), and ho told thorp ho didn’t know nothing
about It, ami the Captain or man who had him
said, "1 don’t believe ho knows anything about
It,” uml said, “ IJrlng the old Radical
out hero In the road,” and got him out
there am! stood him at bank beside the fence,
and the Captain said, "If he don’t know auv*
thing about It, he is the
in this country.” At this time rny mother
was crying uml begging them so they told her to
go away, and took my lather on up the read
about 125 yards, and took him into the woods,
on the right hand side of the road, and 1 heard
the guns, ami the people went up there and
found him tying right side the stump; ha was
dead; ho was shot all through the head mid side
with bullets and buckshot: he was shot to pieces;
there were some sevontv-fivc white men In the
crowd; they hud no disguises; I think It was
about the middle of the day; they shot my
father because tie was a Radical; there was
nothing ever done about the shooting; I know
John ami Post Whitehead, who were in the
crowd. On election-days, If a black man got a
Republican ticket to vote, they would say ho
Was "spotted,” and that meant they Intended
to kill him. About a year ago my niolhcr-ln
aw waa shot, in Orange Countv, Mississippi;
hu got talking with a man who owed him four
bits, and ho told the man he owed him 50 cents,
and he said ho didn't, and went ou, mid about
three miles from homo my brother was shot bv
him; be came right up alongside of my brother
on horseback, and didn’t say anything at all,
but shot him rigid In the side uml broke two
ribs, but didn’t kill him; there was nothing
ever said to him for theshootlng; after the men
hud killed my brother, they weut to the well
urn] got a drink of water, and the water was
muddy, and they said: "ThU water smells as If
t had strychnine, and if it has you will smell
bell for it”; they said Uml to my mother. The
pour white people lu the South are in just os
bad condition as the negroes, except the whiles
Won’t kill them. Reason I leave the South is,
because I can’t make a living them and can't
fiet my rights; what I mean by that Is, If 1 owe
a man sll am to pay, und If a man owes mo $1

a STRONG ÜBUORUL.
The following is the full text of a memorial In
connection with the present colored exodus,
which is being extensively circulated for signa
tures in the cltyi
iho undersigned, your memorialists, respect
fully represent that, within Hie last two week*,
mere have come by steamboat up tho Mississippi
tV. Vu r* * rtim Sicily iliu States ui Louisiana uml
Mississippi, und landed at St. Louis, Mo., a
great number of colored cltixons of the United
plates, not Jess than 9,000, and composed of
joen und women, old and young, and with them
~ c *. r children. This multitude is eager to pro
««d to Kansas, and without exception, so far
J* we have learned, refuse all overtures or in
ducements to return South, oven U their pas-
P"M /or 11u‘»n. The condition of

most, part, nml wliltu hern bavn been supported
in some extent by nubile, hut mostly by private,
"he older ones arc lim former slaves
of (lie South ; all now entitled to life and lib*
orly.
. ' ve Mhcr from the first odvtnt ot these
people in this Northern city has been unusually
L l.«r' with Ice ami mow, so that thefr
atmerlnj-a have been areally Increased, ami, lr
nine was in their hearts a single kind remom
branco of their sunny Kouthern homes, they
would naturally give It expression now. Wo
cave taken occasion to examine Into the causes
they themselves assign for their extraordinary
and unexpected transit, and beg leave to sub
mlt herewith the written statements of a num
her of Individuals of the rclmrccs, which wore
taken without any effort to have one thing said
more than another, and to express the sense of
the witness In his own language as nearly as
possible. '
1 lie story (s about the same In each instance:
privation and want from excessive rent
exacted for land, connected with
murder or colored neighbors,
and threats of personal violence to themselves.
1 lie tone of each statement is that of suffering
and terror. Election-days and Christmas, by
the concurrent testimony, seem to have been
appropriated to killing the smart men, while
robbery ami personal violence In one form and
another seem to have run the rear round.
In Mm small number of affidavits taken the
following murders are mentioned s
I’ngc. a smart man, killed at Waterproof,
Miss., before Christmas, 1878. Witness, F.
Marshall.
Bay, smart, and could read the papers, shot
to pieces lu Franklin Parish. Witness, George
Hogcrs.
pon ot Washington Davenport, killed at
Vicksburg at a Republican dub. Blacksmith,
killed by Henderson In 18? J. Witness, It 1),
Daniels?
Harry Curtis, killed for hearing Radical
speeches In 1870. Witness. John Massey.
Negroes sbutm the fields in Tensas Parish,
Ln.; after the compromise, 1878, killing in
Franklin, Washington.ami Tensas Parishes,not
much In Madison. Witness, Jet Gibbs.
Man by thu name of Haffer, und also tho
father and brother of Jacob Stevens, were killed
In Orange County, Allss., about two years ago.
Witness, Jacob Stevens.
The threats of personal violence by shooting
ami Imaging are detailed by each witness
Those who mention the political parties unite
In calling the negroes Republicans und tbclr op
pressors Democrats. 1
Marshal elates Hint when they went to the
polls to vote, the white men would not let tho
colored men vote, nml said, “If you go to tho
box to put the ballot In, we will shoot you.”
Clarence Wren saves “If wo vo’cd the Re
publican ticket the Democrats would cot up In
a mob and kill us off. At tbo last Presidential
election, after voting was done at Kayla,
DOORS WERE BROKEN OPEN AND BALLOTS
TAKEN,
and colored men In charge driven off.”
James Brown says the agent of the place he
rented of said, “Jim, wo are going to carry
this thing our own way: you nlggcri had
things your own way long enough, and wc white
folks are going to have It our own way or kill
all you G d Republican niggers.”
Lewis Woods says: “In Madison Parish, at
the election last fall, wo wore allowed to vote as
wc pleased, because the whiles were afraid to
come on account of the yellow-fever. In tho
adjoining parishes the colored people wore not
olloned to vote the Republican ticket.”
J. D. Daniels speaks of the Democrats throw
ing ballot-boxes In the river In 1874, and says
negroes could not hold their dub meetings; the
negroes wen; Republicans.
John Massey says the Democrats would give
them tlckels, and say if they did not vole It
they would kill them; times wero so bad tho
colored man dared not speak above his breath.
Daniel Parker says Darby was u preacher, mid
was told If ho told tho people how to vote ho
would be shot.
T. J. Watts says no Republican ticket was
nominated in June. 1878, because the Demo
crats would not allow It.
Jet Gibbs says colored men wore Killed to
prevent tbclr voting the Republican ticket.
Jacob ’Stevens says: “The condition of tbo
colored people in the South is awful bad; they
are treated awful bad by the whites: my father
nml brother wero killed by the whites about
two years ago because they were Radicals; on
cl-ctlou-day, If a black man got a Republican
ticket to vote, they would say ho was spotted,
mid that meant they were going to kill him
they would
NOT ALLOW TUB COLORED PEOPLB TO VOTE
os they wanted. After the men had killed my
brother they went to the well to got a drink of
water, and the water was mudoy, und thev said
to my mother: ‘This water smells as If it hod
strychnine In It, and If It has you will smell hell
for ttl ’ the poor white people In the South are
n just as had condition as the negroes, except
being killed. Could not carry mo back South
unless (hey would chain me.”
Wo submit that the great migration of ne
groes from the South Is Itself a fact that over
bears all contradiction, mul proves conclusively
that causes must exist at the South to account
for It. Hero they arc. in multitudes,—not men
alone, hut women mid children, old, middle
aged, and young,—with commou consent leav
ing their old homes In u natural climate, und
facing storms and unknown dangers to go to
Northern Kansas. Why? Among them all there Is
little said of hope in the future. It Is all of fear lu
the past. They am nut drawn bv the attractions
ol Kansas,—they are driven by the terrors of
Mississippi and Louisiana. Whatever becomes
of them, they am unanimous In their unaltera
ble determination nut to return. There are
others coming. Those who have comcand gone
on to Kansas must suffer, oveu unto death? wo
fear,—at all events, more.thon anybody of peo
ple entitled to liberty and law, the possession of
property, the right to vote, and the pursuit
of hapolncei, should ho compelled to suffer,
under n free Government, from terror Inspired
by
liOUBCnr, TIIIIBATS, ASSAULTS, AND MURDERS.
The occasion Is, wo think, a fit one for us to
protest against a state of affairs thus exhibited
to those parts of the Union from which these
negroes come, which Is uot only most barbarous
toward the negro, but Is destructive to the con
stitutional rights of all citizens ot our common
country. •
It is Intolerable to believe that with the In
creased representation of the Southern States
In Congress, those shall not be allowed freely
to cast their ballots upon whose right to vote
that representation has been enlarged. We be
lieve no Government can prosper that will al
low such a shite of Injustice to the body of Us
people to exist, any mom than society can en
dure where robbery and murder go unchal
lenged.
Wo protest against the direful necessities Im
pelling this exodus, mid against the violation
of common right, natural and constitutional,
proven of most frequent occurrence in places
named; and we ask such action in behalf of
our representatives ana our Government as
shall Investigate the full extent of the causes
lerdlng to this unnatural state of affairs, and
protect the people Irom Its continuance,—not
only protect liberty and life, but enforce law
auu order.

New York, Marcb 25.—Miss Middy Morgan,
the well-known stock-reporter, and certainly
one of the best posted persons on livestock in

the cattle trade ot America Is in a bad way, bo
far as foreign shipments arc concerned. She
says none of tho shippers are sending cattle to
Europe, and that the worst fears aro entertained
for the trade In tho future. Tho (Irm of
Tolley Brothers, also that of Norton, Fuller &
Co., both of Philadelphia, have not only ceased
to ship cattle on tho hoof, but through their
representatives have testified before the English
Privy Council that, under tho existing stringent
laws enforced by the foreign quarantine author

has stopped shipping his cattle entirely, but
continues shlpiueuts of dressed beef, and now
and then sends over a dock of sheep. All the
others have also stopped shipping.
The last shipment made of sheep was by
yesterday’s steamer. Half the number shipped
aro close-shorn, as an experiment, to see if they
would nut sutler leas between decks from the

To add to the perplexity of American ship

has succeeded iu inducing the Privy Council to
strengthen its quarantine regulations, and at
the same time has secured au order permitting
the unrestricted admission of til Irish cattle at

AMUSEMENTS.
UAVEULY’S.
“King Henry VIII.” Is one of the least
dramatic of Bhakspcare’s plays. There Is In It
little action or violence of passion, but much
matter for mild and thoughtful contemplation,
and therefore It Is more favorably known in the
closet than upon the stage. The virtuous dis
tresses and the mock sorrows of Qu«* Kathe
rine, some episodes In the life of Woftey In
which his character is shadowed forth, and the
vulgar, arrogant, cruel, and hypocritical King
have supplied Shakspearc with colors by means
of which he has given us this picture of “Bluff
King Hal’s" days. John McCullough last
night enacted the part of Cardinal Wo’eej/.
Strength Is by no means the characteristic
of the role, and It is ill suited
for the display of these qualities
native to this actor. It la Impossible for on
artist to bo great In everything. A player,
whether ho knows It or not, betrays himself
like a writer. Any one who touches seriously
with pen and Ink cannot long hide bis nature
from prying eyes. Mention a voluminous
author who has not exposed himself. Their
secrets get into the Ink In spite of them. So It
Is with the player. Some familiar tone, some
treacherous gesture, some habit, trick, or
peculiarity betrays the mental predisposition or
the bodily weakness. Even Salvlnl, the most
versatile of oil artists, docs not escape from the
thraldom of high health and muscularity In a
quiet comedy part. 80, too, with Edwin
Forrest. Ho never succeeded In completely
subduing the manifestation of an In
corrigible spirit, and In bending
It to the truthful embodiment
of miscellaneous characters. John McCullough
betrays In Woltey the leonine growl and the
stalwart manhood heard and seen in the heroic
roles In which bo has oppeared during bis en
gagement, and In the personation of which he
has so Justly won a widespread reputation. His
full voice, bis robust figure, and bis firm stop
fall to present fully the picture of the wily,
proud, ambitious, yet tottering schemer. But
the personation Is a careful one, and shows
much study. His reading, as it Invariably Is,
was the perfection of elocution. The apos
trophe, "Farewell, a long farewell to all my
greatness,” was delivered with a tine appre
ciation of every word’s meaning, conveying by
action mid expression the utter helplessness of
the CanHna.’g situation. Miss Emily Qavln, a
young lady who appeared as Kmllta In the
"Othello” cast of last week, was tho Qu«a
Katherine, We do not wish to wound this
lady’s feelings, but la a spirit of candor wo may
say that her stature will make It Impossible for
tier ever to become a popular actress. Bbe Is
too tali. True, bad she phenomenal qualities
of voice and feature and dramatic Intuition of
an unusual order, she might overcome this—for
the stage—physical defect, and become famous
In such parts as Lady Macbeth, Queen Kath
erine, Jtmnhtlde, or Meg Merrilies, but, as
she Is not gifted with a vocal organ
possessing the trade ring, nor a face
capable of expressing varied emotions,
and kb the dramatic spark within her, judged
by her performances last fall and last night,
appears to Bicker but feebly, tragic greatness,
wu arc afraid, will never bo her portion, la her
personation of Queen Katherine it should be said
that sbe read the Hues with creditable Intelli
gence, but her delineation of the “ mock sor
rows ” and “virtuous distresses ”of the un
fortunate wife of Kmg Henry lacked that refine
incut mul sympathy necessary to convoy tho ex
cessive mildness of disposition which makes the
entirety of her character. In the trial scone the
revelation of sorrow was reasonably well made,
und In the subsequent sccuo In which
occurs the hue “i am the most un
happy woman living,” she showed that
her conception was much better than were
her means of execution. This, too, was appa
rent in the last act, which requires most care
ful elaboration to be at all acceptable. The
actress must Indicate by visible signs tbo slow
but sure approach of death. Miss Qavln did
this, out Inartlstlcally. There was the feeble
movements, the Involuntary play of tho bunds,
und the sad, uncertain gaze,—olldono verv nice
ly, but not obovo the standard of a good ama
teur. Thu sentiment of religious resignation
permeating tho character was made prominent
In a clover way, but tho high breeding inherent
.to tho lady who, though meek, la still an Arm
goocse, was wanting In the assump
tion. As .to the support, little cau bo
said against It, but much that Is favorable. Mr.
A. Lungdou In make up amt bearing excellently
portrayed tbo sensual and arrogant King Henry ,
John ». Sutton was a trlllo too Jollv-looKhig fur

KICK'S RAMBLES THROUGH PARIS.
Persons who have a taste for travel, for art or
architecture, have found much to entertain and
instruct them in the unique and enjoyable enter*
lolnments which Judge Dick (s giving with his
Euryscopc in McCormick Hall. The constantly*
Increasing attendance Indicates that the public
has discovered something beyond the ordinary
lu the "tours'* and "rambles" which ore
undertaken under Judge Dick's escort,and after,
the extensive excursions through England and
Europe during the past ten days, it Is not dllll
cult for those who have seen the Illustrations to
conclude that, ns Edward Everett Halo said In
Uodtou, "Nothing more magnificent has been
seen In tbls country." The splendid
galleries and marble corridors of Versailles,
the scenery in the parks, the strolls about

a way last nlcht as to revive all the memories
of those who hsd before visited thoplsccs pie*

“riXAVOIIE.”
The veteran John Ellslcr has a “ Plmforo ”
company with himself as the Admiral nnd-bls
daughters, Elbe and Annie, as Jotephlne and
Hebe.
A well-known New York manager is said to be
about to bring out “Plualoro" with none nut
children ot from 7 to 14 years In tho cast, being
now busy rehearsing forty odd youngsters In
thc-lr parts.
The “ Pinafore " continues to draw large audi
ences at McVicker's, and seats aro already sell
ing for the second week. There is every pros
pect now that tho mania may rage here as fierce
ly as it hat at the East. It Is one of the curiosi
ties of the epidemic that it has altackod the
musical community, and tho theatre Is now tilled
nightly with the class of people who are usually
only seou at grand opera and important con
certs. r
A Scotch verdict on " H. M. 8. Pinafore ” has
been recorded in Boston: “Why now, d'ye
mind nuo, it's perfectly redeocutous to suppose
Hint the rules o'the navy wad aboo sic famed
iarlty between tho olllcersnmd men, or that yon
mao Porter could tak about twa doxeu weemen
along wf him on board the ship. An* tho
Captain on' Admiral wadoa sing slc-iiko songs,
fur huo could dcesciplUie bo presatmdl It's
nonsensical trash, moq."
It would bo strange If, after being played all
through this couutrv without making him a
penny the richer, “Pinafore" should be tiie
death of its author. A Loudon letter says that
Arthur Sullivan "baa lost prestige of late lu
musical London, principally on account of his
having stooped to the level of 41. M. 8. Pina
fore,' which, though a very clever work In its
line, is thought by many persons to be beneath
tho dignity of a doctor ot music and a man of
Mr. Sullivan's position and ability."
Mr. Arthur Sullivan has published a letter in
au English paper, acknowledging the receipt of
a payment by Manager Ford of Baltimore, oo
account of the profits of performing "B, M. a.
Pinafore,” mid lie has also sent the following
note to Messrs. Dltson «fc 00., of Boston:

When English authors complain of “piracy”
by American publishers, they ought to remem
ber that the unreasonable demands of their
own publishers have constituted for years the
chief obstacle to Ute arrangement of an inter
national copyright. The principal publishing
houses on this aide of the water would be very
glad of a law to protect authors' rights, hut tho
proposals for a treatv heretofore submitted on
the part of the Britfsb have been designed not
at ail for the benefit of authors, but rather to
secure to British manufacturers a monopoly of
the AriWlcan market Justice does not require

TUB COUNT JOANNES AS LORD
DUNDHBAUY.
A ’no fork Herald, March n.
The sgony of suspense which for a week has
been torturing Mr. Sothern’s admirers is over,
and tho worst is known. When It was an
nounccd a few days ago that the Count Joannes
was to play Dundreary la 11 The American
Cousin,” there were among Bolhcrn's friends
those who feared that between the Count’s
known abilities and tho 111 health of tho most
prominent of previous representatives of the
alleged nobleman of a certain period, the
laurels might he transferred to the brow of Uie
uncrusbed tragedian. Bat the Count has mag
nanimously waived Die laurels; he has success
fully captured Mr. Sothcru’s whiskers, hair,
eyeglass, and drosslng-gowu; ho has even es
tablished a partial claim to the standard Dun
dreary step; but with these he has apparently
contented himself.
The peculiar assemblage which nearly filled
the little St. James Opera-House last night was
both sympathetic and critical; but, for practical
purposes, it was better fit lor . a “Pinafore”
chorus or a ratification meeting than a body of
beholders of an eminent tragedian who was es
saying a popular comedyrole. It was distinctive
ly a musical audience, keeping time with feet
and canes to such orchestral efforts as were
peculiar to the ballroom and singing the words
of all song music that was played. All Ibis was
mero play, however, for long before the curtain
rose the impatience of the gallery was manifest
ed in a manner that Xlearcd the scats beneath.
The raising of the curtain elicited a roar of satis
faction, above which was beard a voice, appar
ently aucclcd by the sight of thcmucb-laundrlcd
Ulnney, proclaiming “Sixshirts for nine dol
lars I l ' The emotion subsided enough for the
utterances on the stage to be partially audible to
tboso who gave them, but when the invincible
Avoula Fairbanks appeared in the traditional
garb and chcvaluro of Florence Trcnchard, one
delicious, long-drawn “Ah!" shook the house.
A moment or two later the lady seated herself.
Why this simple act should have provoked a
tremendous “OhI” in which surprise, horror,
and admiration strove for the mastery, was not
ctcarlv explained, though perhaps the fact that
all toilets arc not equally manageable, and that
the public has its own Ideas as U> how much
fummlne stocking should be displayed elsewhere
than on clothcs-lluos and in Hie windows of
ladles* furnishing-goods establishments, may
throw some light upon the subject. A scatter
ing liru of comments and diminutive terms
of endearment followed, some over-enthusiastic
youths and old gentlemen addressing the hero
ine as “Avvy” and “Vony,” but the audience
was reserving Its forces for a fitting welcome to
the noble porsonatorof a noble name, and when
the Count, capitally made up for Solheru, am
bled gracefully to the centre and front, the
BoJiern clique, which came to scoff, felt its
knees to rattle abjectly against each other as
cheers, roars, yells, catcalls, whistles, ami other
tokens of esteem shivered the trembling air
into multitudinous vibrations. Thu Count
bowed; bis tragic brow cast off Its wrinkles; he
was evidently pleased and was not ashamed to
show lu His lips moved; perhaps bo said
something, but If bo did only the sensitive pho
nograph of Heaven caught his words. Hut ap
plause, even ot one’s friends, cannot lost for
ever in a critical audience, and soon n person
who noted the shortness ot the nobleman's vest
shouted, “Ocorgle, pull down your vest,”—a
suggestion which the audience heartily empba
slxca. Boon afterward,! during a temporary
lull, the Count was heard to speak the Hue.
“I’ve got an idea,” and|he audience applauded
as heartily us It this was an acquisition which no
one had over before suspected. Then bo dis
charged an assortment of wonderful puns that
Sotbern can never hope to equal unless ho first
takes a four years* course lu a lunatic asylum.
Occasionally did ho preface a pun with the an
nouncement, “This Is a good one.’* at which
the audience, acknowledging Us Intellectual in
feriority to the noble comedian, would respond
piteously, “Make It light” As each pun was
propounded the unanimous reply of the house
was “Give It up.” When the Count said of
somo one that bo was a lunatic, a ribald youth
exclaimed, '* Why, ho must bo your long-lost
brother,'* and, when the actor asserted his pos
session of brains, the surprise of the audience
seemed to know no bounds. Such was the
hero-worship of the spectators that they
could seem to have lu mind no one but the
player of the title role. When Asa Trcnchard
expressed a desire to be kept out of Hie way of
a jackass he was besought to “ keep away from
Ocorgle,*’ and when the American complained
of the lunch set before him, because there was
no “mush** served, ho was. advised to “put
Ocorgle on the plate.” But even friendly ad
miration cannot stand everything, uml when in
the second act Qcorghma surprised her noble
lover In the act of lilrllng with Florence Trench
ard, with the final result that the Count’s arms
uml shoulders were freighted with the combined
charms of bath beauteous damsels, the regard
of the audience changed to an envy that was al
most demoniac In Ui exoresston. This tempo
rary unpleasantness was allayed, however, by
the Count exclaiming “Never" about some
thing; ut which well, everybody (hut bus
heard “Pinafore” knows what eomes alter
“ Never,” mid every man (n that audience hud
evidently “ done ” the leading sensation.
As a whole the Count's performance was evi
dently pleasing, but there were those lu the
audience who seemed to fear that In departing
from high tragedy Hie noted actor was commit
ting an error.' The support was better lu;w
aountl and dress than has sometimes been seen
lu New Turk fur the same piece. Indeed, some
of Uie acting was so gaud as lu cause regret that
the bulk of the beholders had not come from
deal and dumb institutions instead of private
lunatic asylums. In one respect the audience
was remarkable; whenever the curtain fell it
arose almost to a man and sought thu neighbor
ing bars.

A CINCINNATI MYSTERY*
Tbo Murder of Harry Haldwlo.
Cincinnati Letter.
CTcncinnati, March 34.—Nino days have
passed since Hie murder of young Horry Bald
win, und still there Is no elewto the perpetrator
of the deed. Stimulated by Uie offered reward
of |I,OOO, detectives have worked utght and
day, but they are apparently no nearer a solu
tion of the mystery than when they began.
Baldwin was found In a dying state within a
square of bis own home, loaning against the
wall nearly opposite the public bouse of which
Kate Bennett U mistress. With no other ground
than this the theories of the police have centered
about the Bennett house, and persisted In
cuuncctlug his death with that. All manner
of stories have been invented and circulated,
tho burden of most of them being that Baldwin,
before his recent marriage, had Improper rela
tions with a girl who became desperate at the
loss of his affections and shot him, but up to
this time not one particle of evidence to sup
port such a theory has been discovered, and no
such girl is to be found. The Investigation so
far has gone to prove that Baldwin was a man
of irreproachable habits in his Intercourse with
women.
It Is ascertained that on arriving at Connors*
villc, on bis way to Cincinnati, on the night of
tlic murder, he bad In bis possession about 1100,
which amount was Increased by collections in
that town; that he was careless enough to show
money in a billiard saloon there, and to speak ol
his collections at the depot; that the number of
Connorivillo passengers on the train was
(Treater than the conductor supposed,
mid may bate Included the un
known murderer; that Baldwin was seen
walking homeward In Cincinnati about 10:30
o'clock, perfectly sober;' that a shot was heard
lust before 11 o'clock: In the alley near
Vlckor’s Church: that tlio valise and a pistol of
Baldwin’s were found near the spot from which
(he sound proceeded; that about 1 o'clock bo
was seen staggering along the sumo alley,
about a square distant, with hit bead hang
ing upon his breast, and clutching at his
trousers, which had been detached from
the susocudcrs, as If by some ono
who had been searching foramoney-belt, and
that a little later ho was found by a policeman,
speechless and dying, as already indicated, ami
with little money on his person. All this seems
to show that he was la the alloy, where he bad
slopped in passing, and that the motive was
robbery. Detectives it ml the local newspapers,
hdwover. generally cling to the theory that a
woman had something to do with the murder.
No case of crime in Cincinnati fur the past teu
years bus attracted so much attention.
The story of this murder is one ol the most
mysterious which Ims ever been developed in
the criminal history of this city. Harry U.
Baldwin, the victim, was an agent of the Michi
gan Mutual Life-Insurance Company. He was
married a little over a year ago to a daughter
of Mr. Wlswcll, a prominent citizen of Cincin
nati, and the youngcouplo seemed to live very
happily together. On Thursday, March 13.
Baldwin went to llusbvlllo on business con
nected with the Insurance company, which bo
represented, lie remained there until the fol
lowing Saturday morning, when ho started for
home, stopping at Connersvlllc on the way to
transact some business. Hero ho remained oil
day. spending most of the time in the company
of Thomas J. Taylor, the editor of the Conners
ville iVfiM. He was much dispirited during the
entire day, end Mr. Tjjtor believes that ho was
oppressed by some premonition of his coming
fate. Ue remarked several times that he was
soiry that ho bad written to bis wife an
nouncing that he would bo home that evening,
and seemed to fear (o undertake the Journey to
Cincinnati. When ho was called at the hotel to
go to the train ho refused to ride, and set out
on foot for the depot. Ho was warned that bo
bad little time, and that he must hurry or he
would bo late. His answer was that he hoped
he would bo loft. He had bo heart for the
Journey, and would out go at alt that
i evening, but that his wife expected him.
Ue reached the depot In time, however, ami
started for Cluelnuatl On the train noth
ing particular occurred, tie passed part of his
tune lu Urn imoking-cur, and the remainder in
the regular coach, talking with friends. He
reached Cincinnati in safety, and was seen by
one uf Ids friends, I'hllip Cosgrove, at 10:30
Hint night, going east, on the south «»Ido of
Sixth street, lie bad his valise tu his hind,
and looked tired and care-worn. Ilfs face was
travel-stained, but he walked steadily, and
gave uo evidence of being Intoxicated. That
was the last time Harry Baldwlu was sepa alive
and well.
About midnight I’rlvato Watchman William
Domn and Ollleer Hurtlg went Into a saloon on
Kim street to engage, us they allege, In the In
nocent recreation of reading the newspapers.
While there a piitol-shut was heard, aud the
two oillcers rushed into die street. They found
four or lire men in Die middle of tho street,
and asked them who haa done die shooting.
A man in thu party named William
Schuller said Dial he hud done It, and that ho
hud dunu It " just tor fun." Just then two
of thu regular force came along aud arrested thu
party. Bchsder gave up tho pistol, uud the
party started awav with die oillcers. They pro
ceeded only about aevcoty-Avu feet, when they
returned, and Be halier, after treating tho crowd,
was allowed to go free. Hurtig and Doran re
turned to thu saloon to get their lanterns, uud
Doran then passed up Elm street. About
elehicoDfcct south of uu alley ou Elm street,
between Eighth uud Ninth, Doran discovered
Baldwin leuulng heavily ogalust a door
way. ills trousers were broken from hi*
suspenders. Ills collar bung by one button*
bole, and he bad all the anpcaiance of being
very badly Intoxicated. Dorati spoke to him,
but received no answer. He then attempted to
take him to the Central Police Stathm-Uouße,
but the man was unable to walk. Ho seated
Baldwin oa the steps of tbe bouse where bo
was found, am! hunted up Hurtlie again, ami
the two carried Baldwin bodily to the Central
Station. Hera It was oral discovered
tlint ho was not drunk, but wounded.
There was a bullet-hole passing entirely
through bis head, from one side to the other.
Such surgical attention as police service afford
ed was given the sufferer, and a messenger was
dispatched to Mr. Wlswell, hJa father-in-law.
This messenger, according to bis own story,
upon Informing Mr. U’lawell that fats son-in-law
was dying lu the station-house, was answered,
“All right." Mr. Wlswell slammed down his
window again and went book to bed. Baldwin
never spoke after bis discovery by the oQlcer on
Him street. lie died at 8 o’clock on Sunday
morning.
Suspicion at first pointed toward Scbalter, tbe
man who had fired the pistol on Elm street, the
theory being broached that he,bad shot Bald
win accidentally. He was arrested, but released
after one day’s detention. The wound lo Bald
win’s bead bad been made by s pistol carrying a
cartridge of 33-calibre, and the weapon taken
from Scballer was 33-eallbre. Oa Sunday tbe
valise and bat of Baldwin and a pistol were
found In the alley-way near which be was dis
covered, and stains, which afterwards proved
to be of blood, were found on the walls uud on
the ground. The alloy-way leads to several dis
reputable bouses, mid the Inmates of there
places were promptly arrested. There was no
evidence, however, upon which to hold them,
and, alter an examination, they were released.
That there bad been a struggle teemed to ho
shown from the fart that the collar had been
wrenched from the button on one side, and the
necktie of tbe dead man was missing. Tim lat
ter, however, was afterward found by the widow
la the pocket of her husband’s coat, after It hod
been returned to ber by the police. This added
a new element of mystery to the affair, as rob
ners do not usually take (be trouble to pack tire
wardrobes of tbelr victims so carefully away.
On the strength of this discovery the theory of
suicide was started, but as Mr. Baldwin Is not
known to have had any serious troubles, that
theory was quickly abandoned as untenable.
UURTIO AND DORAN BU9PBCTKD.
Cincinnati Xnautrer, Harm 20.
Yesterday, lu tbe Baldwin case, was a field day
for those woo hate advanced and held to tbe
theory that liarrv Baldwin was shot by a notice*
man who mistook him for a burglar. Hereto*
fore the Enquirer baa avoided publishing the
names of the officers suspected, but the clamor
against Officers liurtlir and Doran, who first re*
ported Baldwin's condition, and were found In
possession of him, has become so loud, and tbe
many fingers of tbe law point so plainly toward
them, that It la useless longer to withhold even
the names.
Private Watchmen Hnrtlg and Doran are now
suspected by Cnlcf Wappcnsteln and Coroner
Carrick of having shot Harry Baldwin by mis*
take, and that they have tbrongb fear of the re*
suit failed to tell "me whole truth." Corouer
Carrick says that be bos formed no opinion on
thu subject, but admits that his suspicious can
not but be strongly aroused. Chief Wappcusteln
frankly says that bo more than suspects—that
ho believes—this Is the correct theory. Ei-De
tectivu Jjm Wblto Is convinced that such Is
the fact, and, os this bos been bis theory from
tbe first, la not much surprised at the result,
lu fact, a large proportion of those who have
worked In thu case have bceu forced to believe,
for the past two days, that Doran and Hurtle
knew mure than they were telling.
The theory upon which Uic officials seem to
be settling down Is about as follows: That Bald
win came up Sixth street to Central ave
nue or Plum street, followed up one of
those streets to Eighth, arriving there
about 11 o'clock, and >that on reaching
the alley running north from Eighth street be
tween Plum and Elm (the one In which the va
lise was found) he was obliged bv a sudden at
tack of a complaint to which he was subject to
retire to the nearest alley, and that while there
In a sitting position was mistaken by the watch
man lor a burglar and at, that ho lav In
sensible In the allev untirncarly2 o'clock, when
consciousness probably returned, when he stag
gered out of the alley unable to arrange bis
clothing, down Eighth street to Elm, and around
the corner aud across the street where be was
found. _
