BOMBARDMENT INSURANCE. Bombardment insurance" is the latest feature in the insurance world says the Toronto Economist, and is written on property along the United States coast in danger of bombardment during the war with Spain. One paper in New York puts the bombard- ,ment rate at 15 per cent., at which an insurance com- pany should grow rich with great rapidity. A fancy leaver" is reported. It insures two dwellings and .contents at New Orleans, La., against riot, pillage, (&c., exclusive of bombardment or fire. The amount is 30,000dol;, and the rate two per cent. The assured are two Spanish maiden ladies, who fear that their houses may be robbed by rioters or ruffians in case of war. The Spanish complications are developing the speculative instinct in underwriting circles, and will probably result in many odd policies being issued. Risks on sailing vessels to the West Indies and the east-coast of South America were quoted afcfive per cent., while the rate on steamers for the same ports was one per cent., while one-half of one per cent. was quoted on steamers in the coastwise trade. Insurance was also written on several steamers on the lacific.
