She iisrcnilcd the scaffold, and was

atoil. An umbrella was holdovorliorliv
thotwoholv fathers, to piotcct her from
the sun, whose ravs shot down like the

tired in a black boinba.ine dross, blnek
I para bonnet, with black veil, which she
wore oyer her face till she vv.ts seated on
tho chair. Dm ing the reading of tljo order
for tho execution by (ieneral llarlranft.tlio

which she kissed fervently several times.
She lir-t looked tit the crowd before

arks to the ollieeis in u low lonc.which

they had tied her elbow s too tight, lor
they slackened the bandage slightly, and
then awaited thu final order. All tho
prisoners wore thus prepared at tho same

About half pa-t eight o'clock this
morning. Miss Snrratt, accompanied by a
ft malu friend, again v isited tho White
llouo, having boon there last evening
for the purpose of obtaining an interview
tt h the I resident. ITo-idcnt .lohiison
having given orders that ho would re
ceive no one to-day, the door-keeper
stopped M'ws Snrratt at the foot of the
tops loading up to tlio l'roidoiit s oi
tice, anil would not permit her to proceed
further. Sho then asked permission to
see (ieneral Mil-soy, the l'resident's Mil
itary Seeietary, who promptly answered
the summons, and promptly came down
tails where Miss Snrratt was standing.
As soon tn tho (ieneral made his ap
pearance, .vii-s Muratt threw heisolt
upon her knees boforo him, catching him
bv tho coat, with loud sobs and stream
ing exes, implored him to as-i-t her in
having a hearing with thu l'ro-idont.

that ho could not comply with her to

imperative, and he would receive no one

on-iderable length of time, sobbing
ilolid in the greatest anguish, protesting
her mother's innocence, and imploring
every ono who caino near to her lo inter

weoping she declined her mother wa-too
;ood and kind to oc gntltv ol the onor
moils ci iiuc ol which she was convicted
and asserted that if her mother was put
to death site wanted to die also.
Tho scone was heart rending, and
inanv ol tho-o who witnessed it, includ
ing a number of bard v soldiers wir
moved to tears. Miss Smratt having be
come quiet, was finally persuaded Intake
a seat in the r.ast ltoom.and here sho re
mained lor several hours, jumping til
Irom her seat ovorv time tho front door
of tho man-ion wa- opened, evidently in
hopes of seeing sonic one enter who
could bo ot service to her, iu obtainin
the ili-ired interview with the President
or that they were tho bearers ut good
news to her.
Two of Harold's sitors dros-od in lull

Ily permission of the authorities, tho
daughter or Mrs. Snrratt passed tho
night piovious to the execution witli her
mother in her cell. Tito entire, interview
was of a very affecting character. Sho
remained with her mother until a short
timebofoic the execution, and when the
time came for separation the screams
of anguish that burst from thu poor
gill could bo distinctly hoard all over
tlio execution ground.

had no tunrer to orant or obtain Hitch ii
favor, and informed the distressed iirl
in an ijentle a manner as possible.

that always characterizes his actions
apart from the stern duties of his noblo

mental anguish of the grief-stricken

Tho alleged inipoitant, after discover,
od testimony which Aiken, counsel for
Mrs. Surratt, stated would prove her in
nocence, was submitted to Judgo Advo
cate (iouoial Holt last night, and after
a careful examination he failed to dis
cover liny thing in it having a boating on

sents unlo vour Honor, that on or
ibottt the 17th dav of April A. D. 180-i,
your petitioner was iirro-tod by thoiuilitary
iiithoritios ot tho I mted States, under
the charge of complicity with tho mur-
er ot Aornuam Lincoln late rrcsidont
f the lTnited States, and has over sincu
nit time been and is now ooiihnod on
lid charge, under ami bv virtue of said
lilitarv power of the I'nited States, anil
is now in custody of Major (ieneral V.
. Hancock, commanding .Middle .Vlili
iry Divi-ion : that since her said arrest
your petitioner ha- been tried ; against
her solemn protest, hy a military coiu-
ini loibiiiilawtullv and without warrant,

.May, the (1th, 180.1, and bv said Com
mission, notwithstanding her former plea
to the jurisdiction of '1110 said Coniinis-
moii, is now unlawfully and unjustly do
nned and sentenced to be hanged on to
morrow. .Inly i, IMi.i, hetweeii the hoius
of ten A. M. and two I'. AL; yourpoti-'
tumor shows your Honor that at tho
time of the conimis-ion of tho said of-
fen-o she was a private citi.en of the
I'nited States, and in no way connected
with the militarv authority of the same,
mil the said offence was committed
within the District of Columbia, said
listrict being within tho lines of tho
iirmio. ()f the Cii'ded Statos.aiul not ene
my's territory, or under the command of
t militaiv commander for the tiial of
civil causes. Hut on tho contrary, vour
petitioner alleges that tho said crime was
an offense simply against tho pcuco of
the I'liiled States, propel ly and solely
cogni.able under the Corstitiitioii and
law- of tho I luted States, by the crimin
al court of this district, and which said
com I was ami is now open for tho trials
of such crimes and oTfences. Wherefore,
ina-mtich as the said crime was only an
olfciiso against the peace of the United
Slates, aud not an act of war, inasmuch
a- your petitioner wa- a pi ivate citi.en of
the same, and not stiojoct to military
jurisdiction or iu any wi-o untenable to
military law ; inasmuch as said District
wa- the peaceful territory of tho United
States, and thai all climes committed
within -tu b tenitory are, under the Con
stitution and laws of tho United States
to be tried only before its criminal tribunal-,
with the right of trial by jury,
Iiia-much as the -aid Commission was a
Military Coniuii ion, organized and
governed by the laws of Military Court
Mmtial, and unlawfully convened with
out warrant or authoiilv, and when sho
had not the right of public trial by jury
us guarantied to her bv the laws and
Constitution ol the United State-, that,
thoreloie, her detention and seiiteneu aru
so without warrant agaiu-t positive law
and unjustifiable ; wherefore she prays
vour Honor to grant unto her thu
United States, most gracious writ of ha
beas corpus commanding the said Major
(ieneral W. S. Hancock to prodiloo be
fore vour Honor the body ot vour said
K-titiotier, with the caii-e and day of
