Towanda, Thursday, May 11, 1865.
Among the most notable signs of peace
now chronicled is the fact that President
Johnson lias made a general jail delivery
of all prisoners of war and political offen
ders. One hundred and fifty such were re- j
leased from Fort McHenry, Baltimore liar-1
bnr, on the 2d, and deliveries of the same j
sort have been ordered at other places. The
prisoners taken during the war are, ot j
course, no longer proper subjects of deten
tion, as we cannot exchange them. Their
number has been very large, but they have
been so distributed about the country that
tbe public has known little or nothing in
regard to them. The class of political of
fenders incarcerated is composed of persons
mostly taken at the north for endeavoring
to aid the enemy. This general release
will be accompanied by no ill effects to the
cause of order and freedom, for the rebel
soldiers will be glad of the opportunity to
return to their homes and remain quiet,and
the others have now no rebel cause to aid.
Not the least important consideration in
the matter is that a large amount of money j
will be saved to the government by this ,
By order of the President, the Secretary
of War has revoked the order of Novem
ber 21, 1862, prohibiting the exportation
of ammunition and arms ; and also the or
der of May 2, 1865, prohibiting the expor
tation of horses, mules and live stock. —
Thus another of the numerous restrictions
on commerce incident to the war disap
pears with the cause which produced it,and
our shippers are once more free to supply j
arms, ammunition, horses and live stock to ;
whomsoever they find it profitable to deal |
with. To the American manufacturers of
firearms this chauge is of the utmost im- j
portauce. Their great customer, the gov- j
eminent, being out of the market, they can
now go abroad seeking others all over the !
world In the progress of the Mexican |
troubles this freedom may become of great!

states that General Potter's force had re
turned from its expedition into the interior
of South Carolina, having destroyed an im
mense amount of rebel property. The
guerillas have again become troublesome
in the southern part of the State. On the
27th ult. a party of them made their appear
ance within six miles of Charleston and
tore up some railri>ad track. Another strong
force of national troops is soon to be sent
out through the State. The rebel ram Col
umbia, sunk in Magnolia creek, has been
raised, and is found to be not greatly in
jured. She will be brought to the North.
The secessionists of Charleston were wild
with joy on learning of the assassination
of President Lincoln, and it is said that
women were actually so profane and sac
rilegious as to fall on their knees and ex
; press their thanks to God for this enormous
| crime. But the sudden arrest of ex-Gover
nor Aiken appeared to bring them to their
: senses, and they immediately became more
i discreet in their conduct, Mr. Aiken's arrest
j and the expulsion of the contumacious
Episcopalian clergyman, Mr. Marshall, who
refused to substitute the prayer for the Pres
ident of the United States for that which
he had been offering for .Jeff, Davis, had
caused much excitement among the Charlcs
tonians. They insist that Governor Aiken
has never been anything but a Union man.
FOREIGN NEWS. — By the arrival of the
America at New York and the Hibernian
off Port an Basque, we have five days later
news from Europe.
The news of the surrender of Lee and
the assassination of President Lincoln had
been received. The former was generally
expected ; the latter produced a most pro
found sensation. Meetings were at once
held in London, Liverpool and many En
glish towns, to express horror and indigna
tion at the assassination. The Italian
Chamber of Deputies was draped in honor
of the President and adopted an address
expressing grief. Earl Russell and Sir G.
Grey, on behalf of Lord Palmerston, were
to move addresses in the two houses of
Parliament expressing soriow and indigna
tion on the Ist of May. Mr. Adams was
to preside on the Ist of May at amass
meeting of Americans in London. Mr. Ma
son, in a letter to The hitler, repudiates the
| crime in behalf of the Rebel States.
Mr. Bigelow, the New Minister of the
United States at Paris, had had a public

At Brussels, on the 22d of April, a great

i Reports from New-Orleans state that the
Mexican Liberals under Ccrtinas are mak
ing progress. Monterey is said to have
been occupied by them, and Matamoros is
. seriously threatened.
Richmond despatches show the ter
rible state of impoverishment in which the
people of Virginia are now found to be, and
to which they have been reduced by the
drafts of the rebel military establishment on
their resources of all kinds. Thousands of
the inhabitants of Richmond, Petersburg
and the surrounding country are preserved
from starvation only by the supplies of
food which the I nited States commissaries
turnish them. Strong desires are expressed
for the removal by government of all re
strictions on trade not contraband of war,
so that facilities may be afforded for a re
suscitation of industry both in the towns
and rural districts. At present the farmers
generally are without the implements or
seeds necessary to do their planting, and
unless these can be speedily procured there
will be no crops forthcoming in the State
I in the summer and fall.
THE COXSTITITIONAL YMEVTOIEVT.
Twenty-one States, including Louisiana, j
Tennessee and Arkansas, have now, through
their Legislatures, ratified the Constitution
al Amendment abolishing Slavery. There :
is no doubt but that New-Hampshire, Con
necticut, lowa, Oregon and California will
follow their example in due season. The
assent of but one more member of the
Union will then be required to make the
Amendment the law of the laud, provided
Louisania, Tennessee and Arkansas are
recognised as organised States. Some ex-
Slave State will, in that case, have the hon
or of giving the casting vote for Freedom, j
Will it bo Kentucky, North Carolina or
Florida ? As to Delaware and New-Jersey, ;
they occupy the unenviable position of dogs 1
in the manger, endeavoring to delay what
they cannot hope to prevent. The Amend- j
ment will be passed in spite of them,and by !
the votes of States a thousand times more
deeply interested in the perpetuity of the i
accursed institution, and more vitally affect
ed by its abolition, than these lree and j
semi-free menials of the Slave power have
ever been, or ever can be.
St3f~ The principal citizens and local offi
cials of Richmond are rapidly coming for- i
ward to the Provost Marshal's office and j
taking the oath of allegiance to the gov
ernment. Among others who have subscri
bed to it are Mayor Mayo, Judge Lyons j
and Littleton Tazewell, Prosecuting Attor
ney in one of the courts. Judge Ould, for
merly of Washington, and lately rebel Com
missioner of Exchange, has, it is reported,
been arrested, by order of the government.
Mr. Pierpont, the loyal Governor of Vir
ginia, is expected to arrive in Richmond
shortly, when, it is supposed, the seat of
the State government will be transferred
to that city from Alexandria.
It is understood that the Army of
the James, commanded by General Ord, and
consisting of the Twenty-fourth and Twenty
fifth corps, will remain in Virginia for the
present. It is said that the Twenty-fifth
corps, consisting of colored troops, will go
into camp at City Point A portion of the
Army of the Potomac was expected to pass
through Richmond on Thursday or yester
day, on its way to Washington.
OUR DEAD PRESIDENT.
OBSEQUIES AT SPRINCFIELD.
SPRINGFIELD, 111., Mnv -1, 1805.
The already large number of visitors who
have been called here to view the remains
of the late President, was increased last
night and this morning by numerous arri
vals from all quarters.
The remains will be accompanied to the
vault by a military and civic procession.
Large numbers have continued to visit
1 the former residence of the late President
| on the corner of Eight and Jefferson-sts.
It is hung with mourning without and taste
fully decorated within.
Large delegations from the adjoining
States and neighboring settlements arrived
through the night, and this morning the ho
tels are overflowing. Some of the visitors
are entertained by the citizens, while thous
, ands of others are unable to find accommo
The weather is warm and the sun uncloud-
I ed. Every body in Springfield is on the
streets. The State House continued to be
visited. At 11 o'clock last night the ladies
of the Soldier's Aid Society laid upon thecof
fin a beautiful cross of evergreens studded
with rare flowers. Other similar tokens
j have been contributed to-day.
At noon twenty-one guns were fired, and
; afterwards single guns at intervals of ten
About noon the remains were brought
| from the State House and placed in the
hearse, which was from St. Louis, and was
; used at the funeral of the Hon. Thomas 11.
j Benton, Gen. Lyon and Gov. Gamble. The
! hearse was surrounded by by a magnificent
J crown of flowers.
Meanwhile a chorus of hundreds of voices,
accompanied by a brass band, sung hymn
"Children of the Heavenly King
As we journey let us sing,"
from the portico of the Capital.
The funeral procession was under the im
mediate direction of Major-Gen. Hooker,
| Marshal-in-Chief; Brig.-Gen. Cook and staff,
1 and Brevet Brig.-Gen. Oaks and staff. The
military and the firemen made a fine appear
ance. The guard of honor consisted of
Gen. Barnard, Rear-Admiral Davis, and
Gens. McCallum, Ramsay, Caldwell, Thorn
; as, Howe, Townsend. and Eakin, and Capt,
i Field of the Marine Corps. The relations
! and family friends of the deceased were in
[ carriages. Among thorn were Judge Da
j vis of the Supreme Court, the officiating
! clergyman, Bishop Simpson, Dr. Gurley, and
' others. In the procession were the Gover
j nors of six or seven States, members of
! Congress with their officers, the State and
municipal authorities, and delegations from
adjoining States. The long line of civilians
; was closed by the Free Masons, Odd Fel
j lows, and citizens at large, including color
ed persons. The hearse was immediately
followed by the horse formerly belonginig
Ito Mr. Lincoln. Its body was covered
with black cloth trimmed with silver fringe.
Never before was there so large a military
and civic display in Springfield. There
| were immense crowds of people in the im
mediate vicinity of the Capitol to see the
procession as it passed, and the people for
1 several miles occupied the side ways.
The procession arrived at Oakwood Cem
etery at 1 o'clock. On the left of the vault
in which the remains of the President and
1 his son were deposited immediately on
their arrival was a platform, on which sing
; ers and an instrumental band were in place,
| ami these united in the chanting and and
J singing of appropriate music, including a
1 burial hymn by the deceased President's
pastor, the Rev. Dr. Gurley. On the right
was the speakers' stand, appropriately dra
' ped with mourning.
PLACE "OF BURI AL
A short time ago a piece of property con
taining eight acres, and located in the heart
of the city, was purchased by the citizens
for $53,000. The ground is improved with
several substantial houses, and trees and
shrubbery. It was designed to render the
site additionally beautiful and attractive,
and to erect thereon a monument to the il
lustrious dead. A vault has been completed
j for the reception of the remains, but owing
j to the wishes of Robert Lincoln, the re
mains were deposited in Oak wood Cemetery,
nearly two miles l'rorn the city. The vault
at this place is erected at the foot of a
knoll in a beautiful part of the grounds,
which contains forest trees of all varieties.
It has a doric galde resting on pilasters,
the main wall being rustic. The vault iB
fifteen feet high and about the same in
width, with semi-circular wings of brick
projecting from the hill-sides. The materi
al is lime stone, procured at Joliet, 111.,
Directly inside of the ponderous doors is an
iron grating. The interior walls are cover
with black velvet, dotted with ever
greens. In the center of the vault is a
foundations of brick capped with a marble
slab, on which the coftin rests. The front
of the vault is trimmed with evergreens.
The Dead March in " Saul" was sung, ac
companied by the band, as the remains
Thousands of persons were assembled at
the cemetery before the arrival of the pro
cession, occupying the succession of green
hills. The scene was one of solemnly in
tense interest. The landscape was beauti
ful in the light of an unclouded sun.
The religious exercises were commenced
by the singing of a dirge. Then followed
the reading ol appropriate portions of the
scriptures and a prayer. After a hymn by
the choir, the Rev. Mr. Hubbard read the i
last inaugural of President Lincoln. Next j
a dirge was sung by the choir, when Bishop j
Simpson delivered the funeral oration. — i
It was in the highest degree eloquent, and
the patriotic portions of it were applauded.
Then followed another hymn, when a bene
diction was pronounced by the Rev. Doctor.
The procession was then reformed and re
turned to the city.
REWARD FOR JEFF DAVIS AND HIS
Whereas, It appears from evidence in the
Bureau of Military Justice that the atro
cious murder of the late President, Abraham
Lincoln, md the attempted assassination
of the Hon. W. H. Seward, Secretary of
State, were incited, concerted, and procured
! by and between Jefferson Davis, late of
Richmond, Va., and Jacob Thompson, Cle

and traitors against the Government of the
United States, harbored in Canada; now,
therefore, to the end that justice may be

arrest of said persons, or either of them

MONTREAL, Friday, May 5, 1865.
George N. Saunders and Beverly Tucker
are out with another manifesto to-day ad
dressed to Andrew Johnson, in which they
accuse him of " a hellish plot to murder
their Christian President," but giving no
particulars. They agree to go to Rouse's
| Point, or some other place, and be tried on
the charge made in the President's recent
proclamation, if the United States Govern
j ment will pay for their defense and guar

JEFF. DAVIS IMPLICATED.
The Washington correspondent of The
Philadelphia Inquirer makes the following
i statement: " The confession of Harrold
and the documentary evidence found on
I Booth's body, fasten, beyond cavil, the pilot
and its full sanction upon Jeff. Davis and
his Canada Commissioners." •
• [From Thursday's Washington Chronicle. ]
The propeller John S. Ide, Capt. James
Wilson, arrived at the Sixth-st. wharf yes
terday, having on board eight of the par-
I ties who are charged with aiding Booth in
j his escape through Maryland and Virginia
after the assassination <f President Lin
coln. One of these parties was a mat:
whom Booth gTtve ten dollars in gold to in
duce him to take him a few miles into the j
country. The Ide also brought up the boat j
in which Booth crossed the Potomac into |
Virginia. It is a small batteaux, with two j
oars, and is in a very dilapidated condition.
The oars look as though they had been
made of several distinct pieces of wood, j
and the boat itself does not seem as though !
it would bear up under even a slight gale, j
The boat was locked up in one of the sheds |
on the Wharf j but before it could be se- j
cured, relic hunters had clipped off pieces |
from the seats and other parts of the boat. I
WHERE THE ASSASSINS ORGANIZED.
The Washington Republican of Monday j
says : It is positively ascertained, and the
evidence is in possession of the govern
ment, that the assassination of Abraham \
Lincoln, the Vice President, and the heads
of the several Departments of the govern
ment, and Lieutenant General Grant, j
was well understood in Richmond among ;
the leading traitors there, and that the in
fernal work was planned in all its details
in Canada. Men who have heretofore been
prominently connected with the govern
ment of the United States are known to
have been active in the murderous work.
It is also in evidence how much money
was paid to the assassins, and who paid it.

HOW BOOTH'S BODY WAS DISPOSED
[From the Boston Advertiser.]
WASHINGTON, May 2, 1865.—The vexed
| question as to the disposal made of the re
mains of John Wilkes Booth is at length
| settled by a statement which may be re
i garded as final. After the head and heart,
which have been deposited in the army
j medical museum in this city, had been re
moved, the corpse was placed in charge of
two men, who, after various movements
calculated to baffle impertinent curiosity,
I dug a grave in a little spot of ground close
j to the penitentiary, where for some years
| felons have been buried. Booth's body was
deposited here, and the earth over it was
| smoothed and carefully sodded over. The
| other graves of less infamous felons had
■ previously been leveled, and a strong guard
j is now in charge of the spot, and will con-
I tinue to keep it undisturbed until the grass
| has grown so thickly that no one will ever
' be aide to distinguish the place where the
j assassin's corpse was interred froin other
' nameless graves around it.
REPORTED ARRIVAL OF SURRATT IN
[From tin; Albany Argus, May 2. ]
The Canadian newspapers announce the
| arrival there of Surratt, who was probably
| the assailant of Secretary Seward and his
attendants, although the New York detec
tives have flattered themselves they have
the man who made such bloody work in
Madison-place. This man, who says that
his name is Paine, undoubtedly was an ac
complice, and there are others under ar
; rest who will be found to have played con
i spicuons parts in the great conspiracy ;
but it is a pity and a surprise that the army
of detectives should have allowed any of
the principals to have escaped.
SURGICAL ANALYSIS OF THE CAUSE
OF THE ASSASSIN BOOTH'S DEATH.
To the Editor of the PhiladeijMa Presx :
SIH : Booth's wound and death were so
peculiar that they deserve notice and at
tention. A post-mortem examination was
made, but the result has not been published;
yet sufficient is known to enable us to state
what were the parts injured,his sufferings,
and his painful horrid death.
The ball from the cavalry revolver en
tered on the left side, back of the bead and
below it, and passed out on the right side,
j He fell a helpless mass, unable to move, ex
claiming : "I am finished !" He was car
ried out of the burning barn and laid upon
the grass, and survived the wound four
hours. He requested several times to be
turned or moved.from side to side, on his
stomach, and asked to see his hands. When
raised, he gazed upon the helpless dead
| niemliers, exclaiming, "Useless—useles,"
and asked more than once of those about
j hiin "to kill liiin," thus to end his pain and
From these statements from those who
I were about him and witnessed the " fussy
doctor " probe his wound, we know that lie
j had a wound of the spinal cord, about the
j second cervical vertebra, which was doubt
-1 less fractured. Such a wound would pro
I duce complete paralysis of the arms, legs,
and lower portions of the trunk, while res
! piration and the action of the heart would
continue, as the nerves which proceed to
i those organs pass oft'from the cranium and
: not from the spinal cord. The mind was
i clear and undisturbed, save from the shock
j of the wound and pain ; but the brain was
uninjured. It was a living, active mind,
with a dead, helpless body, with the most
excruciating, agonizing pain that a human
body can be subject to. We once saw an
, officer with a similar wound lower down in
the spine ; his sufferings were terrible, and
! he prayed and implored all about him to
j " kill him " and end his misery.
In Booth's case the nerves of organic
! life, respiration and circulation were unin
, j tired ; and the only muscles over which he
