The favorable symptoms in Mr. Richard
son's case night belore last gavo way jester,
day morning to unfavorable ones, nud bo
began the day In a condition fur from as
suring to bis friends. Tho infhmation
around tbe wound did not increase, and hnd
his safety depended alone on this there was
nothing to cause alarm. Bui li lit strength
gradually failed, owing to the lack of mmr.
ishuient during tho live dayB s'.uoj bo was
Ilia vomiting erased, and he bad little pain
but bis mind wandered occasionally, and
be appeared quite feverish. His p ul so rose,
end ot sunset reached 1.12, with indication
of failing strength. For on hour or two
after sunset he appeared to rally, but after
that the loss of strength continued, and at
midnight there was hardly a ray of hope
that ho could recover.
Mr. Richardson bad eaten nolbing since ho
was shot. His stomach will retain nothing.
Tbe vomitings bavo ceased. 11 .s strength
bas almost entirely left him. The doctors
are ol tbe opinion that when he received
tho fatal wound tbe coiitents of the stom
ach ran Into the Intestinal cavity. If this
bo so, and all tbe appearances indicate it,
there is not the slightest hope of his recov
ery. Dr. Swan visited bim frequently, and Dr.
Carter was in constant attendance. Drs.
Saj re and Ilnlcoinu called in the morning
and evening, and several of the suH'rei's
friends were with him. Ilia brother, Char
les A. Kichard.'on, of tho Boston CoxaiiK
hatioxai.ist, arrived early yesterday tnorn

during tbe dny.
Mr. Richardson was married to Mrs. Al

Among those piesent werti Mr. Junius Il. n

partlully propped by pillows. Thou:,b very
weak, he was not pule, und looked some
what flushed. Mrs. McFarland occupied u
chair at the bead of the bi d. Everything
being in readiness, tbe Rev. O. B. Frothlng-
bam opened tbe servics with prayer, after
which the simple marriage ceremony, of the
Congregational Church was perfoiined by
the Rev. Henry Ward Beecber. At Us con
clusion tbe Hon. Horace Greoly, Mr. White-

bad just urrived, entered the room und held
a short conversation with Mr. Richardson,
Tbe marrluge was at the request of Mr,

of the friends of botb parties.
