Gossip from Gotham [excerpt]

Special Correspondence of The Inquirer.
     NEW YORK, Sept. 21.—The hearts of the people have been so saddened by the tragic death of the President that they have had little thought of amusement the last fortnight. Mr. James K. Hackett and Mr. Royal Moss, the manager of Wallack’s, out of courtesy to the dead and in sympathy with the national loss closed the theatres the night of the death and the doors were not opened until the evening following the funeral. This is as it should be, and had the other managers followed their example they would no doubt have earned the approval of the public.
