NEW Tons, S-^pt 11.— Hon. 'Samuol Sullivan Cojc diwl nt 8:27 o'clock last evening. Sir. Cox was conscious up to half an hour wforo his di-atli. He then failed to recognize those around him. He had not spoken at any length since 11 n'ciwk in tho morning, when bo talked rather incoherently about th« states and of what ho oxpoctod to do when hj re-entered congress next year. Ho fondly but feebly caressed his wife's arm with his hand just iK'foro losing consciousness. Tho cause of death Is given as peritonitis. The plneo of burial has not yet boon decided n.ton. Prcftcnt nt tlio Dontlilicd. Mrs. Cox, Mrs. Ilnrdenburgh, sister cf of Mr. Cox, and Mr. N. J. Kearney, a close friend of tho statesman, wero present when Mr, Cox died. Thoro wero also n numbjr of intlmnto frionds down stairs waiting for nows from tho sick chamber. A largo number of telegrams from public people among tho most prominent In tho country wore ro- isel ved during the evening. Ills Lnflt Hour*. Mr. Cox turned to Dr. Scuddor with a smile, an hour or so before his dooth, nnd said that he was surprised to find in how little pain ho wnx. Tho ncutencss of the dis- MSO bad spent Its force, and the lack of pain tvns simply an Indication that the fatal exhaustion hod sot in. At 8 o'clock ono of the natchors hskt>d Ml', Cfi.. if bis-uuntuu to bo aiovetl. He did not reply, but raised his win to grasp tho cords which hung over his b^ as if to show that bo had still tho power of assisting himself. Very soon after he lapsed Into unconsciousness, from which he never rallied. _______ A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY. Sltetcli of BIr. Cox'i* Political nml Literary Ufn Work. .

Tho hoy, after pacing throush the common school was sent to tho Ohio university. ' He did not finish bin collegiitto lourso, but went to Brown university at Providence, R. I., and WUH uradu- atod In the class of 1840. He studied law, wont back to Ohio, and began to practice. In JournalUm anil Politic*. Ho did not take kindly to the profession, and after a tour in Kuropo, tbo story of which ho told In "A Buokeyo -Abroad,"- he, In IHiW, became editor of Tho Ohio Statesman, published at Columbus. In 18M ho was appointed secretary of legation to Peru by the Pierce administration, and on his return cultivated politics and was elected from tlu Columbus (O.) district to thoThlrty-flfth congress, which was In session Just preceding the inauguration of Abraham Lincoln as president. Ho stood by tho Union, an I was Rewarded by being returned lo tho Thirty-sixth, Thirty-seventh, and Thlrty-elgth congresses. Ilomovul to New York. In 1804 be was defeated by tho Republican candidate, and removed to Now York city In the following spring. Hero ho wrote his "Eight Years In Congress," an Interesting volume of personal observations and experience. The Interval between hl,» removal from Ohio to New York and his election from a New York dlstrlit Mr. Cox passed either In travels abroad or in writing books about those travels. In-18<l8 Mr. Cox flrac appeared ks a candidate for congress In New York city, and was elected by a largo majority over Starr, his Republican opponent. This ma- 'jorlty was greatly augmented two years after when Horace Greoloy ran against hlrn. Hit Hioond Defeat. In Tit>7 Vwii<>n~bo~ ral j( - for'^cbrigressman-at- large against Lynmn Tremalno, ho was defeated. He was a few months after chosen to All tho scat made vacant by the death of James Brook-*. He was re-elected to the Forty-fourth congress, was appointed speaker pro tomporo Juno 7, 1H7B, and elected speaker pro temporo June 10, 1870, serving until Juno ft. He was elected to tho Forty-fifth, Forty- sixtli, Foi ty-Beventh, Foily-elghth/and Forty. ninth congi'i-sies, and resigned to become minister U> Turkey. This position ho resigned and took his sent In the Forty-ninth congress, filling the vacancy causid by tho resignation of Joseph Pulitzer. Ho was re-elected to the Fiftieth congress, anp again to the FlftVrflrst. • Tho Bimbrlquot of "Sunset." His freedom from partisan bitterness, to- getber.wlth his winning social qualitles,!havB m ulo him a great favorite among Republicans, as his mastery of parliamentary law and constant reinlinoAS to enter into the thick of « party engagement has m:i:lo him a necessity to the Dumo.T.its. Tho production which won for Mr. Cox the oqubrluuetot 'Sunset" was a piece nf descriptive wriilng which appeared in The Ohio Statesman May 10, 1853, and was entitled "A Great Old Buusot." Ho was In tho composing room of Thu titateanum tho evening before and witnessed a peculiarly beautiful sunset. As tlio Inspiration seized him ho picked up bis pencil, arid using a composing stone for a dean hurrielly wrote the article. A Good War Democrat. Mr. Cox was regarded as the best specimen of i war Democrat In congress. Ho never failed to vote for money or supplies, nnd nftor the war was actually begun thore'waS no slaunohur friend of tho Union In congress than ho. For that reason Mr. Lincoln took Mr. Cox Into h'a counsels to a greater degree than has ever bocn generally known, and, 'believing Mr. Cox to bo wholly without personal bias In any advice be gave, the president gave heed to mueh Mr. Cox had to offer. Tho New« ut thu Capital. • WASHINGTON CITY, 8-jpt 11.— Tho news of the death of Reprf sentallve Cox was re- oeived here last night with many expressions of sincere regret. He had many warm friends in this city, and was probably better known here than in the city which bo has reprosauted in past congresses. Probably the one subject in which ho took tho moat intorest'during his life In congress was the life saving service, which ha was Instrumental lu establishing. Ho introduced the flrnt bill in congress for tbo establishment of that institution, and ever slnoe his Interest in it has beon tlroliws and uufl-igging. Must iluve n Jury Koiuehow.
