ONE of 'the features of the remarkable
revivals now in proeress in different por
tions of Indiana, is the temperance feature.
In Indianapolis the ladies who are con
nected with the revival meetings, have
instituted a committee to visit the saloons
and urge thiKkeepers to attend the meet
ings. At Kokomo, in Indiana, the wo.
men gatheFin the bar-rooms and saloons
and •'hazethe tipplers and loafers out
with prayers." This resulted in the sa
loon keepers forbidding the women en-
trance to their "grog shops," and so the
women hold their prayer meetings outside,
on the paveinent; and pray without ceas

The Assuslnatloti of 181 K •
A letter written by , one who had just
conversed with persons living in the re
gion to which the assassin fled, after the
commission of the crime, makes the fol
lowing statement: "I have always be- -
lieved, from careful examination of the
few circumstances attending the crime
that the so called • trial gave us, that the
assassination, however long premeditated,
was hastily planned. Thisis evident,
when we remember that Booth could not
have known that Lincoln would 'attend
the theatre until - noon of the night the
murder occurred. The Burrattville mat
ter uf ropes and concealed weapons re
ferred to a preVionsly planned abduction
that had been long abandoned, .and we
recognize in the great crime itself three
conspirators, Booth, Payne, and one
unknown. It was, evidently, Booth
intention to have the gas turned of -
on the report of the pistol, and the un
known murderer, whose duty it was to
plunge the startled audience into utter
darkness, failed him at the critical mo
ment, and so brought the chief actor on
the stage, for all to gaze upon and recok
nize. It was admirably planned, but had
the plot been ( Carried out, there was yet a
clue to the assassin. My friend, Capt.
McGowan attended, Ford's theater that
night, and finding the house crowded,
procured% camp stool,- and seated himself
in the passage -way, next the private box.
occupied by the President and his party.
A lover of the drama he was well ac
quainted with the ac tors, and saw Booth
come and pause, for a moment,"near the
door of the private box. ,Then
came slowly do , en the passage, and
stood near Capt. McGowan, and
looked earnestly at a paper he took- - '
from his hat. He could see very plainly
into the box, where he was standing, 'and.
the manceuver was evidently eXecuted
to satisfy himself as to the position of his
victim. He then walked back and enter
the fatal place. Almost "immediately
after, the loud report of the pistolstartled
the house. Capt. McGowan is a cool,
self possessed man, and would have iden

lam inclined to the belief that John Bar- •
ratt's hand was relied on to cover in dark
ness the crime and the flight of the sans-
sin. He lacked the courage , necessary to
carry out the design, and he subsequently
lacked the i courage to save his poor
mother. He knew she .was innocent;
and he knew, moreover, that were he to
deliver himself up, with a confesaion of
his guilt, he would save her.

The Nashville _Press says: The calling
out; of the militia was attended by a
speedy tessatlint 'of outrages. The Ku
'dux disappeared as if by magic, and the
garb of the conclave of assassins was seen
no more. Bands of prowlers no more in
fested the roads at nightfall, abusing the
colored people, hauling them forth from
their cabins to be whipped, hung or shot,
as the vindictiveness of their unrelenting
• persecutors suggested. Outrages ceased,
quiet was restored. The militia sent into
disaffected counties restored confldebee in
thelmindsef the Union people, and sent
terror to the hearts of evil-doers. Many
of the most notorious Kuklux leaders left
the. State. A great and good work 'was
thus accomplished, the ditnity, of the
State maintained, and the lives of inoffen
sive and loyal citizens protected. The
militia were eminently successful; and
now, after . having accomplished their
mission, thb greater portion will be die
banded and sent home, subject to be
called out at the Governor's discretion.
Five 'full companies will, however, be re
tained in the service, under the command -
of Gen. Cooper, an able and experienced.
officer, as heretofore.
