Palmer was visited at BeUavue Hospital yesterday by Coroner Woltman and Deputy Coroner Cush-man. Hs seemed to .know who they were, and said : Gentlemen, you are paid fordoing this. Please hurry up aad go away. I don't want to bars you about." ha spoke with pleasure of having killed Furnees. and regretted that ho "hadn't "killed the other three officers also. When he noticed that neither Coroner Woltman nor Dr. Cushman appeared to be ia a hurry to leave, he asked tho policeman who was guarding him to land him his revolver to that he could shoot the Coroner with it. Being refused, he then asked the officer for hi pocket-knife, so tbst he con Id peifoiiu " aa autopsy on the live Deputy Coroner." He then said that when he got his liberty he was going to chsnge the style of revolver he would carry, and arm himself with "one of those big fellows, tha aame as policemen carry." Palmer has steadily refused to eat or drink since be waa taken to the hospital, claiming that he would be poisoned, and by tbe advice of Prof. Wood and the consent of the Coroner and tba District Attorney ho was taken out in a carriage last evening to a restaurant for supper. He went willingly, but refuted to eat at the restaurant ehosen by his attendants, and asked to be driven about until he found one to suit him, and be was then taken down Fourth avenue. At a corner stand ho . bought bananas, oranges and prunes, and in. a neighboring restaurant ho ate bread and eondenssd milk, and drank mach water. Tbsa be went into a grocery store and bought a can of condensed milk, which was put into his pocket with the fruit. He then announced his readiness to return, aad was taken back to tbe hospital. Palmer will not permit tbe doctors ta touch his wounded finger, believing they would - put poison in to kill him." Tha doctors fear that Inflammation will act in, and amputation of the whole hand bsmuis neeeesary. Palmer still contends that he was shot by one of tbe officers, and ailled Furnees in self-defense. Prof. Wood pronounces him violently insane, and Coroner Woltman will not allow him to be present at tba inquest today unless his friends should insist upon it. CHANGED KITS CRIMIXAL it A LPRA.

WALLACE'S THEATRE. , The production of a new play aad the reappearance of Mr. Lester Wallack were the two potent attractions which drew a laree audience to this theatre last evening. The aew play la qusstloa has for aame At Last," a title which possesses the vte. tae of being applicable to almost aay literary work t its author la Mr. Paul Merrltt, aa Paglisbmae and B ptayrlght of some note If Mr. Wallack has chosen "At Last- and placed H upoa tho stage with tbe hope that it may prove a strong success, be has evidently msde a mistake for Mr. Msr-ritt'a play, beyond the interest which It excites as a pretty story told with some skill aad interblended with a few ingenious dramatic surprises, la by no means notable for -vigorous purpose or striking treatment. Mr. Merritt is, it may be observed urlth regret, a disciple of the advanced sentimental school whose professed object is to touch tha emotions to a gentle manner, without regard to tba development of character or to tha Illustration of high and human motives. Tha mod-era French school has been charged, aad Justly, with changing all dramatic scenes, even those belonging to comedy, into purely emotional ones; but, on tha other hand, tha beat Frencn dramatists are In a true sense artists, and all the essentials of a play plot, characters, motive aad situations are faithfully studied and, in.s large measure realised by them. They understand tha passions, moreover, and the relations of those to contemporary life and customs, and this Important knowledge is carefully utilised. Above everything, despite their emotion U tendencies, tbe interest of their work is rarely of a purely sentimental order. Their imitators In England, however, carry the dramatic fashions of the time to an extreme and become mere sentimentalists ; Just as the imitators of Byron emphasixed tha faults of their idol, without repeating his inspiration. Mr. Merrltt's play aims to depict au unfortunate love affair, ia which a husband and his wife act the part of heroes. As usual. In pieces of this class, nearly all the characters are in love although , despite the prevalence of .this affsction, there la a striking absence of sincerity ; one young girl, who is certainly bright enough to know better, dotes on a fool; and one old fellow, who Is at first supposed to entertain a Platonic feeling for a creature lost to bim. finally engages himself to a wldowsd coquette. While regarding this intermingling of conventional characters and tender histories of the heart, we feel assured that tha author waa prompted to invent them, not because they were of aay vital importance to a truthful dramatic conception, but wholly because they were tbe most obvious things at hand. It ia ussless to search for ideas when one can find so many lying loose around him. This is the maxim of common-place, whose apostles are Ilka the leaves of tha trees in midsummer time As a rule uowadaye It is not the custom of the critic to analyze the nature of a play, to contrast its personages, to weigh its motive to discover wherein it is true or untrue to a worthy standard. If we should do this in the present instance and in a measure this method of criticism is suggssteo abov Mr. Msrritt's aew play would seem hut a poor scrap-work. On the other hand, is it interesting from a general stand-point I At already stated, it is based upon a pretty story, and it may pleass the public for a brief space : but it has not strength snough to insure for Itself genuine popularity. Tba first act It weak, and falls to prepossess the audience, while the real gist of the plsy does not really become apparent until tbe dose of the second. As there are only three acta, it will be seen that ths interest excited does not cover wide ground. The closing scenes are pathetic, although then- effect-is spoiled by a conventional anti-climax. The acting, on the whole was not noteworthy. Mr. Wallack was aniisbla and ha morons, but be had little to do of any consequence. Mr. Coghlan and Miss Coghlan, as husband and wife, were unsatisfactory in the first interview, although both did excellently in the second one Miss Effis Germon played with spirit, and tha others were respectable although Mr. Floyd made SmitA altogether too great a blockhead. GENERAL MENTION. V Edward Falconer's popular Irish play. "Peep o' Day. was produced butt evening at Niblo's. witn a cast Including all the members of the company at-t ached to that tbsatre. This play always succeeds in interesting a miscellaneous assemblage. The production of " The Barbarian " (better known as Ingomsr ") at the Olympic Theatre last night served to Introduce Mr. Fleming, a capable actor, in the part of the savsge hero. Miss Florence Ellis was tbe ParOunia, a rule which Mlas Mary Anderson may be said to have msde her owe The change .effected last night in the programme at Booth's Theatre wss an entirely acceptable one. Instead of the whole burlesque of " Evangeline." tbe two best acts from this burlesque were given, in addition so one act from "Ths Babes in the Wood." All the sougs aud dances of both pieces were Included in the entertainment. Last evening Mrc A dele Broas gave her promised readings at Steinway Hall, and the occasion was thoroughly enjoyable. The programme included selections from Longfellow, Tennyson. George Mac-don aid, Shakespeare and othere in addition to that amusing sketch, " A Night of Troubles," by Josiah Allen's Wife Mr. Frank Gilder, the pianist, was also on tha programme with several musical selection.

IS EPIDEMIC IMPENDING? AT. A KM AT TEE FRETALESCE OF SCARLET FEVER TTt ITEADT PROGRESS BDTCX JtOVEhtBEB LAST XO DECIXITK ACTIO YET TAKXX BT TBE HEALTH BOARD Krr&OaPXC-TITE PACTS AXD FIGURES, -t ? . While there Is no present occasion for alarm, according to the Judtrsvoat of the most distinguished physicians ia the City, tha Increasing death fate from ecarJot fever It the sourse of eonsiderablo anxiety both to the walVlnformod public aad' to the nwdieal profession. Of some curiosity, aad scientific interest too, uT the more inquiring membera of the latter, inasmuch aa' tbe fourth quarter or the year usually shout a marked dlmiaw tioa of deaths from iHssases of the ferssent group, and aa the nearly' epidemic pievaleuea of one of tbe group la tha month ef December Is strikingly significant. Statirsphieally arranged, representing the whole mortality of this City for any given year by 100, the deaths from symotic diseases may be represented by 33. But this average relation of zymosis (ferment) to other causes of death ts by ao means steadily maintained, but, oa the contrary, subject to many fluctuation. For the first quarter, tor example tha ratio is 2 to 100. for the second 23 to 100, for the third, embracing July. August, and September, 48 to 100; for the fourth, embracing October, Kovember. aad December. 29a to 100. These ratios are subject to some exception, but they represent tho average prevalence of the xymotle group of death-eaueea during an aversge year. The rule appears to be that firment diseases are at their climax of preponderance in July. August and September, and gradually shade off during the months of October, November, and December into comparative infreqaeney in January and February. Such was the ease during the year Just ending until the last week in Kovember. (ending Nov. 30,1 when 100 eases were reported. The week following showed 120 eases: the week ending Dec 14, ltJ8 case; the week ending Dee. Ul. 175 rants, the week ending Dec 24 exhibiting still an increase over its predecessor. The Increase of fatal eases has kept steady pace with the general Increase having 31 for the first, 28 for the second, 30 for the third, 43 for the fourth. 53 for tbe fifth week. It should not be concluded, however, from these data that there Is anything startling or unexampled In this rie of the percentage of mortality from scarlet fever in the month of IXcember. In 1872 a similar phenomenon waa presented, and the percentage of fatality rose steadily during the last three weeks of the year from 8 out of every 55 to 24 out of every 55. tbe highest mltUummer ratio having been 38 in 55. it then descended steadily, having remained stationary for New-Year week, until at the end of the second week in January it was only 12 in 55. It became epidemic, however in July. 187a So far, during ths present prevalence of tbe dls-esss, the percentage of fatality has not been aa high as it wss in the Autumn of lr72 ; and this of itself considering that ths disease usually subsides during the first and second weeks in Jsnuary, ia a highly encouraging fact. "Perhaps, "said a distinguished medical msn last night, "some instructive lessons mar be drawn from the parallel between tbe few last weeks in 1672 and those of 187S. Tbe last two weeks of the former showed an extraordinary amount of rainfall, with an abrupt descent ot temperature from 32 to 16 Fahrenheit, and similar extremes of humidity. The amount of surface moisture during the third week in December was nearly as extreme as it has been at different times since the tremendous storms in the latter part of November. The parallel is sag. gestlve as showing that surface moisture is probably one of the important factors la determining epidemics of scarlet fever and diphtheria." Another very important point presents Itself, and that Is the intercurrent and relative prevalence of diphtheric cronp, and scarlatina, and the constancy of their assorts tina since the latter, from its first spordtie ease in Hudson-street, in February, ln.VA followed by 2 fatal cases in 1857. 6 in 158, and 53 in 1859, essoined ltt epidemic form in February. Id60. binee the first diphtheria epidemic the eomtiii-eation of scarlatina and croup with the exudation membrane ha been of such constant occurrence as to greatlr increase the fatality of the former and to embarrass medical practitioners in their reports of causes of destb. The instances are a large percentage of tha whole in which scarlet fever ha to be described as complicated with diphtheritic exudation or asthenia, and In which it is not possible to ascribe the fatal result to scarlatina alone. For the last 18 years the fact is noticeable that every increase in the fatality of scarlat as bas been msrked bv a corresponding Increase of fatality from diphtheric The possible exceptions to this rule are constituted by sueh scarlatina epidemics as those of I860 and 1870. Croup may be dismissed from the comparison as possibly a near relative of the latter. To point to particular Instances of the correspondence in fluctuation when, during the fire years from 160 to 1864 Inclusive diphtheria raged with epidemic violence scarlatina proved eorresnondlnrlv prevalent and fatal. When, in December. 1872. scarlatina roe into the epidemic form, diphtnevia waa at Its highest : when. In 1873. dipbtneria destroyed 1.151 lives in a tingle year, scsrlatlne with corresponding virulence destroyed 1.045. A tabular comparison ot the fluctuation of tbe two diseases for the fourteen vears from lB0 to Is 73. Inclusive furnishes st a glance such an Illustration of the constancy of this fact at to be worth compiling: Scarlatina. lAphUrria.

Agsin. as might be shown by a similar table, while there wss no spparent relation between scarlatina and croup, and they were neither intercurrent nor consecutive until diphtheria appeared, they have become more directly associated since then in mortuary statistics. Another fact is worth csreful attention. In the earlier visitations of diptheris, tlie Eleventh. Fourth. (Seventeenth, and Eighteenth Wards were the principal centres of its activity. In common witb that of scarlatina. Ia the epidemic of 1873. on the contrary, its leading centres of mortality and prevalence were In the Nineteenth and Twentieth Wards, which alo became scarlatina centres, snd yet the meet fatal uuarters of the yesr for diphtheris here almost Invariably been the first and fourth, while those of scarlatina are the Third and Fourth. It may be noticed, also, at this juncture that able physicians bare of late shown a marked disposition to reject both the sewer-gas and germ theory of the onsrin of these diseases, aad to Insist that, while microscopic organisms are associated with their development and progress, they are not the cause of the Inf eerion. iL Colin, before the Paris Academy of Medsrine and M. Bert.-before the Institute of France, have eonslusively discredited many of the popular doctrines ot Pasteur snd TyndaU. Von hJetseuskl. an able Vienna physician, after study ot the epidemic of 1873 ia that city, classified its causes under two heads, mlssmas and eontagie defining the first as poisonous gase abundant In hydrogen, such as sulphuretted hydrogea aud sulpha-hydrate of ammonia, and th last an germ cells, but adding that the latter only flourish ia aa atmosphere of the former. IL Davanil, Paris Acad emv of Medicine on the contrary, agreec with MM. Colin and Bert, aad hss produced aa extract of putnd blood no calls avptVjtssi. which kills by injection Into tbe eireulatloa of a healthy anim-i and becomes more and more virulent with oacn tiaasmts-aion. until the trUlionth part of a drop of blood from aa infected animal proves fatal to a healthy oae ia less than 40 hours.
