2 FOREIGN. AUSTRIA. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, New York, May 17.—Figures bliow that tflo total creation of new securities in Germany ■within the last twenty-seven months is 3,051,-* 000,000 guilders, or equal to $1,220,000,000. Of this total 203,500,000 guilders consist of State and city~lcmiiß,*"which~aTe “presumably goodf and not to be;reckoQed ; in'-'any;respect as spec ulative issues. * The* creation of "new banks rep resents 1,003,600,000 “gmlders,'or “$401^)00, 001T. an amonnt closely approaching the entire capital of tlje National Banks of the United States.' The issues of railroad securities, Bonds and stocks' amount to 516,100,000 gilders, ■which,’ as it . is equal to only $90,000,000 per.annum, cau hardly be regarded as an excessive issue during a period of legitimately extensive railroad construction; etill bebiud the expansion there appears to have been a very -substantial improvement -‘ in -'{he’ tradb of tlie country. • ■ . ; : The consolidation of the Austrian Empire seems to have given birth to a new era of prosperity; and special efforts have been made to develops • the rich resources of Hungary, the result of which appeared in 1871, m an increase of about 100,000,000 florins, or 20 per cent in the imports and exports, respectively, of the Empire. It is believed that this real prosperity has been one of the causes of the excessive speculation.' The German bankers of the .city, nearly all of whom are in telegraphic correspondence with jFrank fort, Berlin, and other European capitals, unanimously report comparative quiet .on the other : side,; and/ .agree 7" in , the statement that if there have been failures in Vienna, thev have occurred among smaller mid uninfluential concerns, whose weal or woe is of but slight interest to the commercial world. It appears that the wild spirit of speculation which now and then afflicts America, has reached the Austrian capital, and Unnatural inflation has been followed by the natural result. Thus for, tho suspension of no important bank is report ed, and it is affirmed that there is no necessity for apprehension, the trouble being confined to tho minor firms. No sales of, .American securi ties have been ordered by German bankers in consequence of the reputed stringency abroad. GERMANY. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Trtbune, New Yobk, May 17.—A Berlin correspondent, under date of Hie middle of ApriL presents a curious condition of affairs already developed in Germany by the anti-monastic legislation .of Prince Bismarck. The writer says the Jesuits have found, a fresh ally in Prussia and the ranks of the enemies of the now ecclesiastical legisla tion are swollen by combatants whoso loyalty, hitherto has been unswerving. • Herr Yon Gorlach no longer stands alone as a Protestant opponent of the Chancellors policy. A portion of the . Protestant aristocracy of the old provinces of the kingdom have passed over into the camp of the enemy. In Pomerania and Silesia a bitterness' of antag onism has revealed itself which was never sus pected. These facts have excited much com ment in Germany. The official papers openly accuse tho Protestant clergy of the Eastern Provinces of becoming the allies of the Ultra moutanes, and the ministerial difficulties of Prince Bismarck are not decreasing.

THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: MONDAY, MAY 19, 1873. NEW YORK. - *• wA to The Chicaao Tribune.' - YbEk t ;lTay 17.—The suburban campaign for the auction sale of real estate'is now fairly opened, and. in the opinion of the Jnosfc eiperi , enced dealora/r-blda fair to surpass any season since 18G9. It has been estimated thafrabout 200,000 salaried men, young merchants, and arti -eanfl in'New-York find -it- expensive and unsatis factory to rear families in tenement and board ing-houses, and need healthy and economical -homea-in the suburbs. Dr. Docortez* who destroyed himself lyn, was unmarried, a native of Barcelona,' Spain, and in hia 84th year. Ho - graduated at -the Uni-, versity of Bahia,'Brazil, and also atOxford, Eng land. • A friend of Decortoz recently committed suicide in Hartford, and.this r coppled with pecu niary embarrassment, produced'* excessive de spondency.. Dccortez iras a man of very high intellectual attainments, an excellent linguist, a .profound, observer, and a graceful;writer, but was unable to earn a livelihood. ; He was of an ancient line of Spanish aristocracy. -. j At.7 o’clock this morning the barkeeper: of - a low negro danoe-houso r at 69 Sullivan street,. TUBhed up to a policeman in an excited ‘manner, and asked him to come inside. In a priyyin the rear the officer found a large pool of blood two inches the centre of which was lying a razor. ; Blood was spattered on the walls, and marks of bloody fingers were on the door-posts. The officer tracked drops of blood from the pool .to a hallway, coriier of Broome and Sullivan streets. Satisfied that a great crime' had been committed, he hurried to the Police Station and reported to: Oapt. McCullough, and a platoon of .men in civilian dress at once began a thorough search of the neighborhood. Meantime an immense crowd of excited blacks and whites gathered around, anddicussed the mystery; At 10:40 o’clock a negro .rushed into the ponce station and said that Mary Jane' Sul-' livan, of 57 Thompson .street, hadbeen killed by, her- paramour, who had fled* Proceeding thither, the.officers.clambered up two pairs of stairs, and found a young white woman lying on. a bed, dead, and covered with bruises. They as certained that she had been living with a colored -calciminer, named Jim, alias Joe Jackson, and that he had disappeared.. His bank-book and several other articles were also missing.’ The row of houses of which No. 67 is one is known as “ Nigger Alley,” and is peopled by negroes and their white mistresses.: Besides the dead woman, two other young white women, also mistresses of Jackson, were in the room, and were arrested as witnesses. The wounds on the corpse:-were evidently inflicted by some heavy blunt instrument like • on- ax-handlo, which was found on the floor. None could have been done’ with a razor, and there . was no connection between the body end the pool of blood in the privy of 69 Sullivan street; The police formed a theory that Jackson had caught her in the act of unfaithfulness with another colored man in the latter place, had killed him -with a razor, hidden his body, drove her home, murdered her, and fled. AU the facts since as certained seem to bear out this horrible theory. When the Corronor and his assistants arrived at the house of death they found such a crowd assembled • that it was with the utmost difficulty, they elbow ed their way to the door. The interior of the miserable shanty was so densely packed that a strong force of: police was found necessary to clear the way to the room where the body lay. It was that of & young woman of 22, with beauti ful features, slim, hut elegant figure, rather below medium size. She had long, dark' silken hair, dark complexion, and dark eyes. She lay on her side,_ near the front edge of the bed/and was covered only with a chemise and , coarse brown horse-hlanket. - A deep cut was found over the right temple. The'nose-was swollen as if hya blow. Both eyes and the right check wore discolored, and the . face,'neck, and chemise were stained with blood. Near tho right elbow was an abrasion surrounded by discoloration: as if in warding off a blow from a club. This arm day across the body, and' tbo other was partly outstretched as, •if in the act of - supplication for mercy, on act which tho open mouth strongly suggested. The skull was not fractured, but. death was found to have resulted from compres sion of the brain by a large clot of coagulated blood from one of the external arteries, which had * been ruptured by a blow on the temple. Prom the large quantity of coagulated blood* around tbo heart, and tho -rigidity of the body, it was concluded that she had lived two or three hours after receiving her injuries, and had" died about 4 o’clock. The jury was impaneled, and a formal inquest is to bo held on Monday. The Coroner then-took tho informal deposition of. the witnesses captured by the police. ' Alfred Wilkes, colored, testified that ho was in tho liquor-store at Broome and Sullivan streets, at midnight’last night. Deceased.ou- at tor partaking of a glass ‘of ale,- had-a bottle filled with whisky, with -which eho was about leaving when Jackson came in. On seeing her be shouted, “You d d b——h, what are you doing hero.” Deceased answered “Nothing.” Jackson then said, “ Get out of here,” and struck her back with. I a club, which witness identified as tho one found on the floor of the rbom in which tne corpse lay. Jackson drove her out and followed, and witness heard them talking in loud and angry tones outside. Jackson was perfectly sober at tho time. • Nellie Crnmmel, washerwoman of Jackson’s harem, testified that tho murdered woman took the missing pictures and clock to her house for safe keeping several days ago. Sho said Miss Sullivan wandered into Jackson’s room while drunk three months ago, and-lay down on his’ rhed ; that she had lived with him since. Miss Sullivan had wealthy relatives in Philadelphia, some of whom visited her a few days ago and wanted her to go home with them, hut sho re .fused. - Jackson’s two ‘ other mistresses denied any knoWledge’of the tragedy. One-of them, Lottie Armstrong, described the light-handled razor with gilt letters on it owned ‘by Jackson. * The Coroner showed her the razor found in the pool of blood. It is light-handled, and has on it in heavily-gmlt old English letters : “ The Old English-Bazor.'She-was startled, but- strove to throw doubts upon its identity. The'keeper of tbo dance-house and Ida barkeeper could not recollect whether Jackson was in ..the place last night, although they acknowledged that he was a nightly visitor. The Coroner subsequent ly visited the privy at 69 Sullivan street. Dr. poTjpnan estimated the quantity.©! blood in the that it *^ ee pints, and gave it: as. hia : opinion artery,! suddenly from some main AU the a full,for analysis, were locked up in th® ■ •’washerwoman, Late to-night.a Detention. . v , , washerwoman’s hearing the. -which theJbody lay, and .identi^l^ lo room in •'Miss Cad Gibson, daughter of a'weaief 8 that; of chant of that place.

Then she suddenly disap peared, and the next heard of. her she was at Omaha, leading a life of shame. Thence she went to Chicago, and, ; after staying there a while, returned to Philadelphia,.

So inuch was Pierrepont’s; heart in the Treasury; and so confidently did be expect to succeedßoutwell, that he. visited: the various bankers and leading capitalists of 'Europe'hot long,since, and from them gathered the informa-' tion that a United States., thirty or fifty-year bond at 4 percentom interest could be readily spld: in . Europe. 1 Tho capitalists preferred a long time : bond;. at . a low rate of. interest,: to a short time bond, at' 6 or 7 per cent. It will be readily inferred-from this .state** ment that: Judge : Pierrepont has a .finan cial -theory directly at variance from that of the Administration. He would cease paying off the public debt, as is now. done, and poa£ pone, its payment for thirty .to fifty years ;; but what his plan is. for providing, a sinking-fund or other measure for ultimate liquidation.olthe debt.does not appear. The prediction is rthat ho will decline the mission! to Russia; or; if ho accepts it, wiUJjo accompanied with an under-, standing that.his resignation .may be expected within six months. .Pierrepont .will the distinction, the prestige m which he delights above all things; save the -dollars, which may* make the way smooth to his larger ambition..: - ...

Assembly In Session in Baltimore-* _ A Manifested to InVesti gatc tlie Publication JB poycdßeorgnnizatiou. / Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. t Baltdiobs, Md., May 17.—The feature of to day’s session was the debate on the .resolution i offered by the Eov. James Dunn, requiring from ' the Board of Publication a detailed financial l . statement. The Assembly has manifested a pur pose to' press hard this Board, and discover whether it is managed on sound business princi -1 pies. There is no evidence of fraud or extrava -1 • g&nco, but rather 'of carelessness : and a purpose to create a close corporation, of Philadelphia Presbyterians. When the issue was made, to-day, Bra. Booth and Backus spoke -very plainly of the continued refusal of. the Board to. present proper accounts. The latter gentleman said that no. body of .men, however respectable, wore justified in expending the Church’s money and not accounting therefor. The Western members are especially hostile to the Board’s recent conduct, and many of them express an intention at rebuking its arrogance. Their first move will be against the proposed pe riodical for gratuitous circulation, .which, it ia said,-is designed to satisfy the editorial proclivi ties of certain officials without involving their private fortunes. • . Phillip Schaff to-day secured from the Assem bly tho surrender of-an entire evening'next week to the hearing of addresses in behalf of tho Evangelical Alliance, which meets in New York next October. This is a pet measure of Br. Sob all’s, and he was sent to the Assembly to represent it. . . One of the most important matters to come before the Assembly is a plan for the consoli dation of the Boards of the Church, and a sim plification of its machinery. Several papers on this subject.were offered to-day.- There is now top much friction in tho workings of tho Church,; as compared with the products of eleven boards and committees, all with salaried officials and separate Treasurers to perform’ a work which might bo entrusted to four. - Undoubtedly the .present Assembly, will-remedy thismatter.- * * -To-morrow all-the-Presbyterian pulpits and many of other, denominations will oe filled by delegates.
