Army Correspondence. ARMY OF THE CUMBERLAND, Headquarters, 78th Regt. P. V., Nashville, March 25, 1865. DEAR GLOBE :--As most of those in terested are aware, the company of men enlisted and organized by Capt. obn: Brewster and Lieut. D. G. En eart loft Camp Curtin on Sabbath morning, 12th inst, and about two o'clock of the same day passed thro' Old Huntingdon, en route for Tennes :ee. We had .a pleasant ride over the s mountain and we could have enjoyed it very much bad it not been that pas :sing through Huntingdon brought the most of us so near our homes, reviving • ividly all their precious memories, that a tinge of sadness settled upon nearly every heart. Wo reached Pittsburgh about one tieloek that night, and soon were coin ortably quartered in a large building used for that purpose, in the vicinity .f the Girard House, where we slept -oundly till morning. For breakfast .we repaired to the Girard House, now used as a Soldier's Rest, and sur ounding Uncle Sam's table, ate hear tily of his plain but substantial fare. Upon returning to our quarters wo were informed that it was customary for the citizens of P. to give one meal . every company, or regiment, of sol .iers passing through their city, and that if we saw proper to accept their hospitality we should have dinner at the. City Hall. This offer was accept .ll by the company without a dissent. ing voice; accordingly we held our selves in readiness, for an attack at noon upon the generosity of Pittsburg. Meanwhile, we strolled through the city and Were surprised to find that in ` Pittsburg the citizens of all classes did not think it beneath them to notice a soldier and treat him kindly. The heerfal, genial kindness of the people .1 Pittsburgh toward us and Captain hock's men, whom we overtook hero, .ntrasted with oar treatment in Har risburg, was as the warm sunshine of June to the chilling blasts of Decem . er. While in Harrisburg the upplea taut impression forced itself upon us that it was no longer an honor, as it once was, to be an American soldier, but that in entering the service of our country we bad bade adieu to our man_ hood. Inyittsburgh the reverse was the feeling that took possession of our minds, and her citizens told us—by works as well ae words—that above everyone, it is the American soldier whom the people of Pittsburgh delight to honor. I should like to make men tion here of many little incidents il lustrating the kindness of the people .f Pittsburgh to us, but space will not permit. At noon we repaired to the City all, and partook of an excellent din . or. The Hall itself is a large room ad beautiflilly decorated. Wreaths :of spruce, gemmed with flowers, and surmounted with miniature flags, : :ves a pleasing effect to the place. Al 5 o'clock we took the cars on the ittsburgh, Fort Wayne & Chicago ' R. The train moved slowly off at first, and from every part of the city we could see flags and handkerchiefs nd hats wave, and above the rumble of the train hear prolonged cheers from hundreds of voices. Never can we forget Pittsburg. It reminded IA f the early days of the war, when Old Huntingdon lavished her patriotic , nthusiaern upon the soldiers passing through. The distancp from Pitts argil to Crestline, Ohio, where we were to change cars for Cincinnati, is 156 miles. Consequently, we wore all night on the road. The train on which we. left Pitts •urgh was an "extra," made up of in. ferior cars with narrow cushionless . -eats, and as we were much crowded we . passed the night uncomfortably, •• without sleep. A good breakfast with warm coffee made some amends •or the discomforts of the night. At 1.1 A. M. we cheerfully entered the •ars of the Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati R. R., and resumed 'our "ourney: Of the general appearance •f the country, the improvements and farm management, between Crestline nd Columbus, until you near the lat ter place, little can be said that is ore. ditab/e to Ohio intelligence, taste and industry. The fencing is inferior, the barns mostly small log structures Dn. .rovided with threshing floors, the dwellings correspondingly poor, and rendered generally unattractive by the .ntire absence of trees and shrubbery. • Wo noticed all along the road large - fields of corn standing in shocks un touched in other places the farmers were engaged in husking and hauling it away. I do not make mention of 'this to condemn; perhaps, there may be arguments in favor of this plan, ;sufficiently strong, to justify its being practiced here. Much attention is WILLIAM LEWIS, Editor and Proprietor. VOL. XX. paid here to wool growing, and we saw everywhere large flocks of sheep in good condition. We reached Columbus about 8 p. m. Columbus is a beautiful city, and had our inclinations been 'consulted we would have preferred staying there a day. No offer of this kind being made us; we obediently entered the cars at the signal, and were soon under way to Cincinnati. We passed throughaenia and reach ed Cincinnati at 8 P M. Of the man try between Columbus and Cincinnati too much can hardly be said in its praise. The Littie Miami flows Oro' a portion of it, and the whole country is possessed df great natural advanta ges. Broad fields of well cultivated land spread out before the eye of the traveller, while beautiful residences, environed in evergreens and shrubbe ry, with substantial outbuildings, aro everywhere seen. On arriving . at Cincinnati we were conducted to the Soldiers' Homo of the Cincinnati branch of the U. S. Sanitary Commission. Hero we were treated with the warm cordiality of friendship. Supper was given us and comfortable lodging. The next morning breakfast was furnished us in like manner, and as Captain Shock's men and ourselves were to leave Cincinnati at noon,, the Commission got up a special meal for us at 11 A. M. It was a dinner such as ony one at home would esteem a privilege to partake of. We ate hear tily, and, with feelings of gratitude and admiration for the Sanitary Corn mission, loft the Soldiers' Rest for the steamboat. Before leaving, however, both companies drew up in line before the Commission's building, and gave three rousing cheers for the Cincinnati Branch of the Sanitary Commission. Half an hour later we were on board the steamer General Lyttle, and shortly after this were sailing down the Ohio. Ho must indeed be insensi ble to much that'is beautiful and ro mantic in nature, who fails to be agree. ably entertained by a trip down this noble river. After leaving Cincinnati the first thing that called forth our admiration particularly, was the vine yards stretching along the right bank of the river. From the bank of the river back half a mile the ground slopes gradually, and at others rises abruptly. For a distance of seven miles this slope is covered with the vine. As far as the vineyards extend ed, at the foot of the slope, and imme diately on the bank of the river, are seen, nestled in among evergreens, tasteful cottages, forming, with the vineyards in the background, a scene of beauty rarely equalled. As we stood on the bow of the beautiful sten /nor, and watched her cleaving the wave, and gazed upon the fine, scenery on either side, we almost forgot that every. groan of her great engines, eve• ry stroke of her wheel, and every vi bration that ran through her huge frame, was a reminder that we were being borne farther and farther from our native hills. Night came, arid with it pretty much ended the enjoy ment of this part of the trip. The night was too stormy to sleep with safety on the upper deck, or on the guard around the cabin. So we had only one choice left and that was qui etly to take up our quarters on the lower dock. I shall not torture. you witha description of how two hundred men, jammed in among huge.piles of boxes, barrels, hogsheads, etc:, tried with becoming perseverance to dispose their weary bodies in an attitude for sleep. Suffice to say, few were so for tunate as to woo to their embrace, "Nature's sweet restorer." - We reached Louisville in the night, but remained in the boat till morning. Our first view of the "Old Kentucky" shore was by no means enchanting. A heavy, cold northeaster was blowing, and the rain was coming down in torrents. On the wharf was a mixed up mass of men in charge of the unla ding, nogroes, great and small, and mules ; all trying by dint of scolding, pushing, whipping, pulling, and awful swearing—the mules didn't swear—to induce certain drays and omnibuses to forsake mud and go up into the city. We left the boat and marched one mile in the direction of the Depot to the Government Soldiers' Rest. We passed the place where the famous guerilla, Sue Drunday, had been exe cuted the day before. At noon we entered the cars of the Louisville & Nashville R. R.. On! thp'. day before, 25th, two trains, Nl:ben forty miles be low Louisville, had been fired into, thrown off the trark and destroyed, by Gentry's band of guerillas. The mail and Adam's Express were robbed, also the passengers, and the soldiers acting as train guard, paroled. No wore in structed to load our guns and be in readiness as an attack was anticipated When we reached Elizabeth city we came up with tho train that had loft Louisville in the morning. The Road had not yet been cleared of the wreck ed trains, nor the track repaired. By 11 o'clock at night the road was re• paired and both trains, comprising some fifteen passenger cars, left Eliza both city: Before leaving, the lights in the cars were extinguished, and seen, enshrouded in the darkness of midnight, wo were whizzing through the deep forests of the "Dark and Bloody Ground" with a speed that was perfectly reckless and terrifying. We reached Pilot Knob, now historic ground, twenty-one miles from Nash ville, just as the beautiful orb of day was emerging from the chambers of the east. An hour later wo wore in Nashville, and had the satisfaction to learn that the 78th regiment was en camped near Fort Negloy, ono mile south of the city. Thither we bent our steps and wore soon warmly we!. corned by the officers and mon of the Old 78th. We were conducted to comfortable barracks and by evening felt much at home. The 78th occupy what is called the Transfer Barracks, of which I shall speak again. We have plenty of good limestone water, and the air is pure and delight ful. There is but little sickness in our company and most of the men aro cheerful and contented. We should like our friends at borne to remember us by sending us, regularly, letters and Huntingdon papers. A Complete and most Graphic Ac count of the Movements of J. W. Boothin his Assassination of Abra ham Lincoln, . We extract the whole of the follow ing account of the conduct of the assns-' sin on the day ,1 . -ooding tho night of the tragedy from the correspondence of the New York World by Jerome 13. Stilison. Without any exception, it is the best and most circumstantial ac count, if the whole of it be based upon fact, of any which wo have hitherto seen; and if wo dare say co : is one of the most dramatically detailed ac counts of an appalling incident in na tional history which has over been of fered to any nation : Some very deliberate, but not at all extraordinary, movements wore made by a handsome and extremely well dressed young man in the city of Wash ington last Friday. At about 111 o'- clock A. M. this person, whose name is J. Wilkes Booth, by profession an actor, and recently engaged in oilspec ulations,sauntered into Ford's Theatre, on Tenth, between E and: . F streets, and exchanged greetings with the man at the box office. In the conversation which ensued the ticket agent inform ed Booth that a box was taken for Mr. Lincoln and-General Grant, who wore expected to visit the theatre, and con• tribute to the benefit of Miss Laura Keene and satisfy tho curiosity of a large audience. Mr. Booth went away with a jest, and a lightly spoken "Good afternoon." Strolling down to Pumphreys' stable, on C street, in the rear of the National Hotel, he engaged a saddle horse, a high-strung, fast, beautiful bay mare, telling Mr. Pam phreys that ho should call for her iu the middle of the afternoon. Visits Mr. Johnson. Prom here ho went to tlio Kirkwood Hotel, on the corner of Pennsylvania avenue and Twelfth street, Whore, call ing for a card and a sheet of note pa per, he sat down and wrote upon the first as follows ? I don't wish to disturb you; aro you at home 7 J. W. BOOTH. To this message, which was sent up by the obliging clerk, Mr. Johnson re sponded that ho was very busily en gaged. Mr. Booth smiled, and, turn• ing to his shoot of note paper, wrote on it. The fact, if fact it is, that ho had been disappointed in not obtaining an examination of the Vico President's apartment and a knowledge of the Vice President's probable whereabouts the ensuing ovoning in no way affected his composure. The note, the contents of wlnich are unknoWn, was signed and Sealed within a few mon nts. Booth arose, and bowed tea. 4 • • •:•••; tance, and passed into the elegant person was seen on e a few • minutes, and was t• • n into the Metropolitan Hotel. He Visits His Stable At 4 .y. M. he again appeared at Pumphroys' livery stable, mounted the mare ho had engaged, rode leisurely up F street, turned into an alloy between Ninth and Tenth streets, and thence into an alloy reloading to the rear of Ford's Theatre, which fronts on Tenth street, between E and F streets. Here ho alighted and deposited the mare in eisinall stable off the alloy, which ho had hired some time before for the ac commodation of a saddle horse which HUNTINGDON, PA., WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26, 1865. Yours truly, M. H. S -PERSEVERE.- ho had recently sold. Mr. Booth soon afterward retired from the stable and is supposed to have refreshed himself at the neighboring bar-room. The Scene at the Theatre AtS o'clock the same evening, Pres: ident Lincoln and Speaker Colfax mit together in a private room at the White House, pleasantly conversing. Gcn: Grant, with whom the President had engaged to attend Ford's Theatre that evening, had left with his wife for Burlington, New Jersey, in the six o'clock train. After this departure Mr. Lincoln rather reluctantly deter mined to keep his part of the engage ment, rather than to disappoint his friends and the audience. Mrs. Lin coln, entering the room and turning to Mr. Colfax, said, in a half laughing, half serious way, "Well, Mr; Lincoln, are you going to the theatre with me or not ?" suppose I shall have to go, Colfax," said the PresideUt, and the Speaker took his leave, in com pany. with :Major Ratlibono, of the Provost Marshal General's office, who escorted Miss Harris, daughter of Sen ator Harris, of NoW York. Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln reached : Ford's Theatre at twenty minutes before 9 o'clock. The house was filled in every part 'with a largo and brilliantly attired au dience. As the Presidential party as cended the stairs, and passed behind the dress circle to the entrance of the private box reserved for them, the whole assemblage, having in mind the recent Union victories, arose, cheered, waving lilts and handkerchiefs, and manifesting every other accustomed sign of enthusiasm. The President, last to enter the box, turned before do ing so, and bowed a courteous acknowl edgment of his reception. At the mo ment of the President's arrival, .Mr. Hawks, one of the actors, performing the well known part of Dundreary, had exclaimed :, "This reminds me of a story, as Mr. Lincoln says." The au dience forced him, after the interrup lion, to tell the story over again. It evidently pleased Mr. Lincoln, who turned laughingly to his wife and tondo a romark which woe not over heard. The Box. The-box in which the President sat consisted of two boxes turned into one, the middle partition being removed, as on all occasions when a state party visited the theatre. The box was on a level with the dress circle, about twelve feet above the stage. There were two entrances—the door nearest to the wall haying been closed and locked; the door nearest the balustrades of the dress circle, and at right angles with it, being open and left open after the visitors had entered. The interior was carpeted, lined with crimson paper, and furnished with a sofa covered with crimson velvet, three arm chairs simi larly covered, and six cane-bottomed chairs. Festoons of flags hung before the front of the box against a back. ground of laee. The Arrangement of the Party President Lincoln took one of the arm-chairs and seated himself in the front of the box, in the angle nearest the audience, where,partia!ly screened from observation, he had the best view of what was transpiring on the stage. Mrs. Lincoln sat next him, and. Mies :Harris in the opposite angle nearest the stage. Major Rathbone sat just behind Mrs. Lincoln and Miss Harris. These four were the only persons in the box. The Play Tho play proceeded. The audionee at Ford's including Mrs. Lincoln, seem ed to enjoy it very much. The worthy wife of the President leaned forward, her hand upon her husband's knee, watching every scene in the drama with amused attention. Even across the President's face at intervals swept a smile, robbing it of its habitual sad. floss. Tha Assassin's .Prelinzinariesto Flight. About the beginning of the second act, the mare standing in the stable in the rear of the theatre, was disturbed in the midst of her meal by the en trance of the young man who had quitted her iu the afternoon. It is pre sumed that she was saddled and bri dled with exquisite care. Booth Enters the Theatre Having completed' these prepare ; tions, Mr. Booth entered the theatre by the stage-door; summoned one of the scene•shifters, :Mr. John Spangler, emerged through the same door with that individual, leaving the door open, and left the mare in his hands to be hold until he (Booth) should return. Booth, who was morefashionably and richly dressed than usual, walked thence around to the front of the thea tre and went in. Ascending to thodross circle, he stood for a little time gazing around upon the audience, and occa sionally upon the stage, in his usual graceful manner. He was subsequent• g '.- . 1-I 4-2:-., 1, 1 --- ...4,. ;,7 t ; ',..•' tr.;., 4i: : ,. . ,"Y , 1 1% %\1 . l li'l - ,. ?..'; %P- /.'‘.-:;-. • ly observed by Mr. Ford, the proprie tor of the theatre, to be slowly elbow ing his way through the crowd that packed the rear of the dress-circle, toward the right side, at the extremity of which was the box where Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln and their companions were seated. Mr. Ford casually no ticed this as a slightly extraordinary symptom of interest on his part of an actor so familiar with the routine of the theatre and the play. The curtain bad arisen on the third act, and Mrs. Mountghessington and Asa Trenchard were exchanging viva cious stupidities, when a young man, precisely resembling the ono described as J. Wilkes Booth ; appeared before the open door of the President's box, and prepared to.enter. The Assassin at the Box Door The servant who attended Mr. Lin coln said politely : "This is the Pres ident's box, sir; no one is permitted to enter." "I am a Senator," responded the person, "Mr. Lincoln has sent for me." The attendant gave way, and the young man passed into the box.. In the Box As he appeared at the door, taking a quick, comprehensive glance at the in terior, Major Rathbone arose. "Are you aware sir," ho said, courteously, "upon whom you are intruding ? This is the President's box, and no ono is admitted." The intruder answered not a word. Fastening his eyes upon Mr. Lincoln, who had half turned his head to ascertain what caused the dis turbance, he stepped quickly back without the door. The Shot. Drawing a Derringer pistol, and ta king, by moans of some almost mirac ulous calculation, a deadly aim, he tir ed through the closed door, on his right, the ball passing through the door, and on,Eorius - tho brain of the PieSident. The Assassin's Flight The movements of the assassin wore from henceforth quick as lightning. Springing into the box . through the door of which ho had just retreated, he drepped his pistol on the floor, and drawing a bowie-knife, struck Major Rathbone, who opposed him, ripping through his coat from the shoulder down, and inflicting a severe flesh wound in his arm. Ito leaped then upon the Tol vo t covered balustrade at the front of the box, between Mrs. Lincoln and Miss Harris, and parting with both hands the flags that drooped on either aide, dropped to the stage beneath. Arising, and turning full upon the audience, with the knife lifted in his right hand above his head, he shouted : "Sic semper tyrannis— Virginia is avenged !" Another instant and he had fled across the stage and behind the scenes. Col. J. B. Stewart, the only person in the audience who seemed to comprehend the deed lie had committed, cliinbed from his seat near the orchestra to the stage, and followed close behind. The assassin was too fleet and too desperate. Meet ing Mr. Withers, the leader of the or chestra, just behind the scene, he struck him aside with a blow-that for tunately was not a wound; overturn. ing Miss Jenny Gourley, an actress, who came next in his path, ho gained, without further hindrance, the back door previously loft open at the rear of the theatre; rushed through it; leap ed upon the horse hold by Mr. Span gler, and without vouchsafing that person a word of information, rode out through the alley lea - ding into F street; and thence rapidly away. His horse's hoofs might almost have been hoard amid the silence that for a few sec onds dwelt in the interior of the thee- The Scene in the Theatre Then Mrs. Lincoln screamed, Mrs. Harris cried fur water, and the full ghastly truth broke upon all-:"The President is murdered !" The scene that ensued was as tumultuous and terrible as one of Dante's pictures of hell. Some women fainted, others uttered piercing shrieks, and cries for vonganco and unmeaning shouts for help burst from the mouths of men. Miss Laura Keene, the actress, proved herself in this awful time as equal to sustain a part in real tragedy as to interpret that of the stage, Pausing ono moment before the footlights to entreat the audience to be calm, she ascended the stairs in the rear of Mr. Lincoln's box, entered it, took the dy ing President's head in her lap, bath ed it with the water she bad brought, and endeavored to force some of the liquid through the insensible lips. The locality of the wound was supposed to be in the breast. It wits not until af ter the neck and shoulders had been bared and no mark discovered, that the dress of Miss KCODO, stained with blood revealed whore the ball bad penetrated. TERMS, $2,00, a year in advance. The Insensible PresiiieQ Carried out As soon as the confusion and crowd wore partially overcome, the form of the President was conveyed , from the theatre to the residence of Mr. Peter son, on the opposite side of Tenth street. Iler3 upon a bed, in a little hastily prepared chamber, it was laid and attended b.f . Surgeon General Barnes and other physicians, speedily summoned. The - Excitement in the Capital: In the meanwhile the news spraed through the capital as if borne on tungues of flamo. Senator, •Sumner, hearing of the affair at his residence, took a carriage and drove at a gallop to the White House, where he hoard where it had taken place, to find Rob ert Lincoln and other members of the household still unaware of it. Both drove to Ford's Theatre, and were soon at the President's bedside. Sec retary Stanton and other members of the Cabinet were at hand almost as soon. A vast crowd, surging up Pennsylvania avenue toward Willard's Hotel, cried, "The President is shot!" "President Lincoln is murdered." Another crowd sweeping down the avenue met the first'with the tidings, "Secretary Seward has been assassin ated in bed." Instantly a wild appre hension of an organized conspiracy and of other murders took possession of the people. The shout "To arms!" was mingled with the expressions of sorrow and rage that everywhere fill ed the air. "Where is General Grant?" or "Where is Secretary Stanton ?" "Whore are the rest of the Cabinet?" broke from thousands of lips. A con flagration of fire is not half so terri ble as was the conflagration of passion that rolled through the streets and houses of Washington on that awful night. The attempt on Secretary Seward's life. The attempt on the life of Secreta ry Seward was perhaps, as daring, if net so dramatic, as the assassination of the President. At 9.20 o'clock a man; tall, athletic, and dressed in light colored clothes, alighted from a horse in front of Mr. Soward's resi dence, in Madison place, where the Secretary was lying very feebly from his recent injuries. Tho house, a solid three story brick building, was for-. tneely the old Washington Club House. Leaving his horse standing, the stran ger rang at the door, and inforthed the servant who admitted him that he desired to see Mr. Seward. The servant responded that Mr. Seward was very ill, and that no visitors were admitted. 'But I am a messenger from Dr. Verdi, Mr. Seward's physi cian; I have a prescription which I must deliver myself." The servant still demurring, the stranger, without further parley, pushed him aside and ascended the stairs. Moving to the right, he proceeded towards Mr. Sew ard's room, and was about to enter if, when Mr. Frederick Seward appeared from an opposite doorway and deman ded his business. Ho responded in the same manner as to the servant below, but being met with a refusal, sudden-. ly closed the contraversy by striking Mr. Seward a severe and perhaps mortal blow across the forehead with the butt of a pistol. As the first vic tim fell, Major Seward, another and younger son of the Secretary emerged from his father's room. 'Without a word the man drew a knife and struck the Major several blows with it, rushed into the chamber as he did so; then, after dealing Mr. Haniell, the nurse, a horrible wound across the bowels, he sprang to the bed upon which the Secretary lay, stabbing him two or three times in the face and neck. Mr. Seward arose convulsively and fell from the bed to the floor. Turning and brandishing his knife anew ; the assassin fled from the room, cleared the prostrate form of Frederick Sew ard in the hall, descended tho stairs in three leaps, and was out of the door and upon his horse in an instant. It is stated by a person who saw him mount, that although ho leaped upon his he'rse with most unseemly haste, he, trot cd away around the corner of the block with circumspect deliberation. The Gathering of time People. Around both the house on Tenth street and the residence of Secretary Seward, as the fact of both tragedies became generally known, crowds soon gathered so vast and tumultuous that military guards scarcely sufficed to keep them from the doors. The Death-Chamber of the President. The room to which the President had been conveyed is on the first floor, at the end of the hall. It is only fif teen feet square, with a Brussels car pet, papered with brown, and hung with a Photograph of Rosa Bonheur's "Horse Fair," and engraved copy of Herring's "Village Blacksmith," and two smaller once of "The Stable" Erna' "The Pam Yard," from thOlimme art- THE G-I.Jo - E3= JOB PRINTING OFFICE.
