4 GOSSIP WITH. Oust .FRIENDS.—I wish I had
the ability tmdescribe in becoming language the
incidents of &le past week in New York,-partieu
larly twit lairday till Wednesday. AA day and
all night of Tuesday two long lines, four deep,
extended far far away from the City Hall, where
the remains of our loved Presideht reposed in
state. Immediately about the Hall was packed a
solid mass of thousands of men, women and thil
died. Cars, stages and vehiclespf all description s
were stopped, and it was only by.making a long
detour that pedestrians could get past the crowd,
All business was entirely suspended, there not
being a desire to attend to the usual avocations of
life. People patiently awaited their turn for
bears, and there did not seem to be even a show
of impatience from any one., Awe had fallen
upon the multitude, and a solemnity pervaded the
vast assembly that death • could only produce.
There was no confusion, no excitement, no strug-..
gling. At quite an early hoffr Weditesday
morning, the cars and ferry boats began to empty
into the city crowds of people from the subUrbsf
and the surrounding towns and cities, and by ten
o'clock Broadway was lined from the Park up
with a dense mass. I had sufficient foresight to
hire a - coach the night before, and from the top
of it, stationed at a cross street, had a fine oppor
tunity to See the fiineral cortege as it passed. I
have seen crowds, but never such a one as on that
day. There was positively room for no more to
see, and as it was many could not see at all.
From house to curb was a solid body, so compact
that there appeared to be no individual move
ment.—The Dailies have spent all their powers in
noting the procession. Enough for me to say that
its magnificence and extent surpassed all I could
have imagined. New York paid all the honor she
could pay to the dead President; and wher. we
recall to mind the immense majority given Geo. It:
M'Clellan, and the opposition to the administra
tion', the honor seems all the greater. The sol
diers, horse, foot and artillery, the sailors and
marines, the societies of all kinds, the various
nationalities, the foreign officials, all seemed .to
vie with ono another to do honor to the mournful
occasion And then the Lookers on were so quiet,
so solemn. As the funeral car approached, each
citizen took off his bat, and bowed in reverence,
amid it was not until it hail fairly passed that be
replaced it, and that too with the air of one stand
ing in a sacred place. The day was bright and
beautiful, the air balmy and exhfferating, but a
cloud hung over the hearts of the true and honest
throng like a pall. I gazed at the passing pageant
until that brain was almost dizzy, and 'then left
from sheer inability to look any longer It will
be a day long remembered in New York.
HOW little, how inconceivably small seeing the
destruction'of Chambersburg to the assassination
of our chief magistrate ; and how trill; has the
heart of the nation been struck by the slime bul
let that deprived Mr. Lincoln of life. The north
is once more united, the south has succumbed,
the war is practically ended!: leace is near at
band, and in slew short years w will again be
a great, penaceful, prosperous country.

has been taken, and other arrests are speedily sue

N,EIV YORK, April 30,
TAKEN Ftitt Btiorn.—Our townsman'J.
Eyster, Esq., , narrowly escaped arrest in
Huntingdon last week on the suspicion that he
was the veritable J. Wilkes Booth. the murderer
of the President. He had gone there on a visi t
to his brother-in-law, Hon. John Scott, mnil
went into a barber shop to get shaved. He or
dered the barber to shave off bis moustache, w hick
Waslone, and afterihe operation was performed
Mr. Eyster walked out to the house of his rela
tive. As soon as he left the shop, the barber di.;-
elared that he was Booth; that he knew Booth
well and had shaved hint in the oil regions. Of
course an intense excitement Was aroused. The
news spread through, the town with lightning - ,
speed that Booth had, been in the place. The ho
tels were all examined, but no such person had
stopped at any of them, and suspicion was con
firmed by the fact that the suspected individual
must be secreted somewhere about the town.
Mr. Eyster was not out of the house during the
evening, mod was fherefore ignorant of the excite
ment he had created ; • and it was not until the
next morning when be appeared on the street
with Mr. Scott, that the blunder was dislovered.
NOiyi.that Booth has been captured and killed, we
presume that Mr. Eystet will feel safe in venturing
from home again.
TIORSE TVEVES Ano u T.—We .learn that
Washington and Quincy townships iu this county
are infested by a gang of home-thieves, and a num
ber of horses have seen stolen there recently.
Prompt measures have been taken by both the
eivil.and military authorities to break up the bu
siness and capture the 'parties engaged hi it-
There is little doubt that some of the thieving re
bel guerillas have creased to this side of the river
to prosecute their trade. On Sunday last the
people of Hagerstown settled a gentleman of‘that
cloth by shooting him down, and if such depreda
tions continue, our people will doubtless do like
PAY OF DRAFTED • MEN.—A correspondent
at Carlisle writes us to know whether one year
drafted men are entitled to the $lOO bounty paid
volunteers, and whether they are on equal footing

All soldiers, whether volunteers, or conscri4ts, are
on exactly equal footing as regards clothing, rations,
pay and pensions, but only volunteers are entitled

We trust that the officers will see that soldiers
cease annoying citizens, and the civil authorities
have their share of the work of reformation to

The Liking and the Dead -Assassin in Washington.
From the Washington Chronicle, April :9th
The city yesterday throbbed with fierce excite
ment when the news reached it that the murder
er of the great President had been captured, and
had met a fate in every way suited to his charac
ter and to his-crime. The anxiety for his capture
had become a very mania with otfrlPeople, and
when the news of its'aecomplishment had reached
them there was a general satisfaction. a feeling
that a duty v , ibieh it was a solemn obligation to
perform had been accomplished at last ,
The details of the flight and the pursuit will
suggest to every reader the sum of punishment
that met the assassin between the committal of
crime and its, final retribution here. He died like
a coward, burned out of a trap like a rat; armed
to the teeth, but fearing to-use his arms, either
on his pursuers or even on himself lie showed
be could be a bravo before a theatrical audience,
but failed to show that he:could face death with
the common courage of a bandit. Like many
another actor, he could not act to a poor house.
His misled accomplice, the paltry partner of
his flight, and approver of his crime, shared his
sufferings, but nut hi& nerveless apathy, for he
surrendered without any attempt at acting, and
now lies awaiting the sentence that he has bought
with so much recklessness, so much guilt and so
much suffering.
Booth and Harrold left here together after the
assassination, and made their way into Maryland,
remained in the swamps until the 2 . 2dinltaut, and
then crossed over into Virginia, via Swan's Point,
landing at Bluff Point. They then took the road
to Port, Royal; and 'finally to Bowling Green.
Harrold, however, is the only one of the two who
went so far as Bowling Green, Booth stopping at
Garrett's, where Harrold rejoined him. Their
evident intention was to reach the mountains of
East Tennessee, by the way of Orange -.(2`ourt
house. •
It appears to be pretty well ascertained, that
when Booth alighted on the stage at the theatre,
as he jumped from the box, he broke the lesser
hone, of his 17 a little above the ankle, and,
though the excitement of the moment drowned
the pain, when he began to ride, the broken bone
must have caused him' most excruciating pain.
The leg was clumsily reset tor him, and with the
help of crutches made his way through swamps
and over roads, :With death for rotick-o'-lantern

party of Confederate soldiers whout they met. he

will understand from our account of the put-hint.
passed the house, and Booth and lfarrold, as the
,cavairy disappeared. made for the WIN nil I, is
hich they remained till they came in to supper.
They evidently had no idea that that cavalry
would return there in the night, and believed
that in- the balm, if not in the dwelling, they
would be as safe as in the woods. To this con
clusion they were in all probability driven by the
strong logic of physical suffering and unrest.
in that barn Booth had his crutches, rendered
necessary to him by the fracture of his leg, and
one seven-shooting rifle, one revolver, a carbine,
and a bowie-knife ; but not the one 'he had on the
6ventful night of the 14th April, for tint knife
was not a bowie at all.
Col; L. C. Baker, chief detective ui, the War
Depsitinent, has the honor of having planned the
pursuit which has 13 weeded'in the capture of
Booth and Bartok' into consider

- To the pirtiewietMg under Col. Baker's orders
no little credd Is due for the faithfulness, industry
and endurancelithich they display ed in the expe

pursuit no flagging, was permitted. The work
was continuous, aed so worn were the physical
powers of the men by this lengthened exertion
that it was with the utmost difficulty that they
could be kept awake at its closing hours.
On Monday, the 24th, a detachment of the 16th
New York cavelry,wei - e - ordered by General Han
cock to report to Colonel L. C. Baker, special
detective of the War Department. The detach
ment numbered 25 men, under the command of
Lieutenant Dougherty. On the afternoon of thy
same day, Colonel Baker detailed Lieutenant
Colonel E. J. Conger and Lieutenant Baker, .05f
his detective force, to go in pursuit of - Booth,
pliteing the aforsaid Way of cavalry in their charge,
and under their implicit command.
At '2 P.M. the force left this city on the Jno.
S. He, and at 10 P. Methey disembarked at Belle
Plain, and took the road toward Fredericksburg.
travelling thereon three miles, and then turning
in a southeasterly direction, toward the Rappa
hannock. They stopped at all the houses on the
route, inquiring for any Mary land men of Lee's
army who might be travelling in that section.
They continued their"ourney through the night
y ti
and the next dant' 1 noon, when they reached
Port Con 9 way, on the Korth side of the river, op.
polite Port Royal.
There they toned a man, who, upon seeing the ,
photographs/of Booth, Harrold, and Surratt point
ed out the two former as two men whom he 'was
. positive he bad seen the day before, at one P. 31.,
at Port Conway. He said these men endeavored
to hire him to convey them to Bowling Green, but
that they could not agree in the bargain : and
that, subsequently, lisrrold came to him and said
th 4 had met friends, and did not wont his still/-
res. 'Their information also stated that he saw a
party,of conceder:lth soldiers convey the t%i'o men
whom he, had recognized by the photographs
across the river.
Lieutenant Colonel
. Couger and Lieutenant Ba
ker decided to take this man as a guide. They
commenced crossing the river with their force nt
2P. M. Having a boat which could holy carry
seveir at once, they did not finish the crossing till
5 o'clock. They then proceeded hall-way from
Port Royal to Bowling Green, where they _found
snare women, who stated that the party' of Con
federate soldiers had returned on Tioidny, one'
less in number and that neither of those who Came
,Lack was lame. They subsequently aseeitained
that the soldiers went three miles w ith Bootb, to
the house of Mr. John W. Garrett, and that Har
rold continued on to Bowling Green on Moudoy
night, also that Harrold returned to Garrett's on
Tuesday afternoon.
The pursuing force'passed Garrett's, house a few
i moments after Harrold's return to it, andwent on
! some fifteen miles to Bowling Green. There they
captured one of the Confederate soldiers who had
been with Booth the day before. He mode a
statement to them as to the whereabouts mid -
Movements of Booth and Harrold, fully confirm
ing that above given. This was at 11 o'clock on
Tuesday night They then went back to Gilt....
' rett's which they reached at 2 A. M., surrounding
'the dwelling and out-houses.
it° the first inquiry as to the whereabouts of
Booth and Harrold, the family gave no satisfac
tory reply ; but soon alter the son of one of the
Garrett brothers, confessed his knowledge of their
both being at that moment in the barn.
The force, which bad been extended in loose
cordon around the whele.premises; was then form
ed in heavier line around the barn alone, with or
ders so to remain. The line was at an average
distance of thirty feet from the barn walls. •
Lie*. Col. Conger sent Garrett's son into the
barn to tell the fugitives to surrender to him their
arms, and come out deliver themselves up. Booth
threatened him, saying that he had betrayed them,
and be must leave the barn. Lieut. Baker then
went to the door and again demanded them to
surrender, upon which a long parley ensued,
Booth fiPitively refusing.
(201. Conger then pulled some hay through
a crack iu the wall, ignited it, and pressed it back
into the mow.. The thunes rose rapidly, firing the
whole - building. Booth canie to the corner where
Conger.stood to shoot the party who had fired the
building. He stood with pistol raised, peering
into the darkness, but seemed unable to perceive
any one. Ile then turned, gazed upon the flames,
and suddenly started for the door.
Sergeant Corbett, of the eavalryforce, in viola
thm of orde+L's, left the line, and going close to the
wall before him, fired his pistol through a crack,
shielding Booth ;in the neck.
Booth fell as soon as shot. The ball had sevef
ed the thorax. Lient. Col. Conger and
Baker, with two soldiers, then entered the - barn
and carried him iati; the yard. At first he seemed
as if life had left him, but he soon revived and en
deavored to speak. Lint. Col. Conger, placing
his ear to the mouth of the dying man, heard him
say, " Tell mother I died for my country."
He was then carried to the porch of the house,
and the Lieutenant Colonel despatched a me4en
ger to Port Royal for a physician. When the
doctor arrived Booth was too exhausted to be re
vived by human skill. Booth was also heard by
Lieutenant Baker to say, " I thought I was doing
the - best for the country. Kill rue, kill the !" and
other expressions seemingly a the same purport,
which were not continually audible, and while
Lieutenant Baker was rubbing his paralyzed
Lands, he said, " useless, useless!"
Ife'was shot at fifteen minutes past three, lait
Tuesday morning, the twenty-fifth instant, and
died at ten minutes past seven, twelve minutes
earlier than the great soul of his august victim
left earth to bear witness against him, at the bar
to which fate was hastening him.
The dead body of Booth, and the living one of
Harrold, were soon after conveyed to Belle Plain,
placed on the steamet• Jno. i. Ide, which still re
mained awaiting the return of the little com
mand and the coming of the assassins. •
They arrived at the Navy-yard at l o'clock yes
terday morning. Harrold was then transferred
to a - secure custody, while the body of Booth was
landed at the Navy-yard, and an autopsy held by
Surgeon General Barnes and several assistants.
Bowling Green, near which place Booth was
killed, is a post village, 4e capital of Caroline
county, Va., on the road from Richmond to Fred•
ericksburg, forty-five miles north of the former,
and is situated in a fertile and healthy region. It
contains two churches, three stores, two mills and
about 300 inhabitants,
Port Royal is a post village in Caroline county,
Va., on the right bank of the Rappahannock - river,
.2 . 2 . nailes below Fredericksburg. It has a popu
!lotion of 600, and there is a good steamboat land
ing -near the-place.
Harrold, in company with others, also connec
ted with the conspiracy, was photographed at
5 o'c kick yesterday afternoon. Harrold is a youth
well known about the Navy Yard and* vicinity.
A druggist by profession, "a sport" by choice.
He was fund of horses and fancy arms. The hor
ses he could seldom keep long, selling them to pay
their board.. He was foe a time employed as clerk
by Mr. Walsh, and left opthe limp of his father's
death, which occurred stme months -ago.
• He has since that time led a reckless life, living
carelessly, without visible income. He was born
in this city seine twenty-two years ago, and did
nut possess either literary or artistic tastes likely
to have made him an agreeable companion to a
Booth before the contemplation of murder had
transformed his nature. Harrold - was a boy in
everything, easily led and moulded by a common
will, and so given To bragging that-few of hie in
timates ever attached any importance to anything
he said. I iarrold always talked "chivalry," and
all his empathy, as thr as he had any, went Dix
ie-ward. In convert.ation he was obscene to such
a degree is to render him loathsome to evenhis
own associates.
His arrival at the Navy Yard, with that of
Booth's body, attracted inononse crowds thither,
anxious to obtain a view of all that remains of
ftheAssassin and of Harrold, Ni‘lio in that neigh

A despatchlron) General Grant, dated Raleigh
10 I'. M. April '2Xith,just received by this Depart
ment, states that Johnston ban surrendered thd
lorees in his command, embracing all from here
to tliP ChaVahoochie, to Gen. Sherman on the
basis agre . eil upon between Lee and myself for
the army of Northern Virginia.
E. 31. STANTON, Sec'y of War.
Thy thrall's Newheni correspondence of
April 27th says : The lamentations of Sherman's
anny over the assassination of President Lincoln
were suddenly changed to rijoicings at the ap
pearance of General Grant. his old Army of
the Tennessee were wild with joy. The terms
grunted ,Johnston embrace in the surrender four
armies of the Military Division of the West, but
excludes the fifth, that of Dick Taylor, lying west
of the Chattalmochie rivet . . Among the generals
surrendered ir, Beauregard. Principal among
the lieutenant generals is Hardee. Bragg having
lately Vern relieved of his command wax nut sur
rendered. Wade Hampton refused to be surren
dered and is reported. to have been shot by John
ston in an altercatioh, but a more trust worthy
report us that he fled in company with Davis.—
The number actually surrendered is 27.400 al
though more names are given. All the militia
from South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia
and the Gulf States are included* Gen. Grant
returned to Washington on Saturday.
THE World, editorially, says : In the grave of
our President just men of all parties and shades
of opinion this day bury their bitterness and ex
travagance, born of political conflict, about his
mermiresand his policy. They remember only
that he loved his country ; that he earnestly and
bravely labored for its salvation. With such
memories and with the fame which springs from
them, green and undying, the name of Abraham
Lincoln passes to-day into American history.
That history remains with us to love our coun
try as well as he; to labor as earnestly, as hum
bly, as bravely, for its salvation. Each of us, ac
cording to his light, to maintain all 'duals dent to
qht Siqnktift iltviogitarn i IfbainbitebUtgi Pa.
ha as citizens and as men, is a lesson which this
day reads t,) us, that out of this cloud of sorrow
the nation may pass on and up again into new and
nobler peace, prosperity and glory. The Herald

As the a tack on Sumter sumulatedthe nation to
a war tha it would have chosen to avoid, so this
second ass, It must and will stimulate it to go on
against the rebellion until it has extennmated the
very spirit in which their damnable atorcities
originated. •
The surrender of Johnston to Sherman and the
destruction of the-lost vestige of military power
of treason east of the Mississippi, did not Affect
securitied materially. Gold receded to 144 and
the upward tendency of stocks was arrested for a
few days, , but no sensible change in prices was
effected. We have now reached a point when
military events must cease to influence trade, and
business men can calculate with reasonable ,cer
tainty as to their operations We look for amp
id revival of trade, and very likely a strong specu
lative tendency.
