The Mrs, Garfield Fund, which
has taken the form of a popular
subscription, has now reached the
sum of nearly 4200,000, and contri
butions arechit flowing in. The
movement Was in iced as a recogni
tion of the nobllbearing and heroic
Christian courage of_ Mrs. Garfield
at, a time when the life of her hus
band, the -President, was in immi
nent peril from o the 'wound inflicted
by the assassin—Guiteau. Its laud
able purpose was the establishing of
a; fund sufficient--'to protect the
Presidents family from want, and to"
testify the profound affection and
sympathy entertained for the up
right and stricken President. It is
now,: in view of his probable re
covery, determined to make it a per
manent fund so placed as that the
interest shall inure to the benefit
the President and his family. Sint
it Ilas been made a popular subscrip-
tid substantial, testimonials are
daily being rec4ived of sums of
varying amounts, of the sympathy
with the President in his affliction,
and, of the affection and confidence
entertained for him by the American
people. The humanities of the Na
tion, irrespective lof party have been
stirred in his behalf as they were
never stirred before. We trust the
teachings of the lesson may soften
the' asperities of party strife and
cement the Republic as a firmly
united, patriotic and loyal people,

The official bulletins of the at
tending physicians at the Executive
Mansion, Washington,' which we
give elsewhere, continue of the moat
encouraging and cheering character,
and give a lively hope of the Presi
dent's ultimate full recovery. The
devout - prayers if a loyal and sym
pathizing people , seem about to be
answered. When the 'shock of the
attempted assassination fell upon
the country, all political ani mosities
were forgotten, and the public heart
was touched with the tenderest emo-
tions of profound sympathy with the
President, and loathing of the
wretch who could attempt so horri
ble a crime. The encouraged hope
of his recovery has dispelled the
gloom which for a week or more
hung like a pall over ; the American
,eople. Yet there is the same'ex
pression - of profound respect and
attachment for :our suffering Chief
Magistrate, and confidence in the
purity and uprightness of his per
&Oriel and public character, No
President, not even the. martyred
Lincoln, it would seem, has been
awarded so large a share of public
confidence. It prevades all classes
afid conditions of society. The
anxious inquiries after the condition
of the wounded President ,by all
classes, and the expression of regret
for his perilous situation, while in
danger of death, showed how firmly
and' deeply they confided in him.
The great heart of the Nation will
rejoice, with the profoundest grati
tude.: for his recovery ; and give
thanks to Almighty God that he is
spared for his own and the conntry,'s
&die. There is an impression abroad
that in the peculiar exigencies of the
time, no man is so well fitted to
administer the Executive affairs of
the country, as President. Garfield.
He has given evidence Since his in
auguration of a full comprehension
of the necessities of the political
situation, ',find his every act has
tended to strengthen public confi
dence in his determination to do right
and discourage wrong. We trust
that in the providence of God he
may be spared to do his work.
WHAT IT REMINDS MB. STEPHENS OF
—"What do you think of COnkling's
resignation ?" some one asked . of Hon
A. IL Stevens on Monday. 1"We11,"
he answered, "I am minded of a story
of a suit between two men about the
payment of a prommistiory note down
in Georgia, near where I live. The
defendant adriaitted he had given the
note and received the money, but said
"Gentlemen of the jury, I have offered
to pay him over and over again, and he
wouldn't take the money, because he
wanted sue me, just out of spite. It's
nothing but spite.' The jury actually
brought-in this verdict : ' 'We find it a
case of spite.' Similarly," continued
Mr. Stevens. "I find this action of Mr.
Conkling ' a case tf spite." Mr. Ste
phens also said, when some one re
marked that Conkling lad Platt bad no
ted very,much the same as the South
ern Senators did in 1 . 8411, who - resigned
their seats just because a President was
eleated whose views did not suit them.
"Of course they have, and they should
be treated just the same as the South-
ern Senators were, and not ha allowed
to come back until their disabilities are

Mr. Lapluun is a friend and former

caucus which was composed almost
entirely of the friends of the admin

fairness in the nomination of Mr.
Lapham, a Conkling man, and
Mr. Miller; an administration 'man.,
This action is in happy contrast
with the dictatorial spirit ,of the
Con Ping stripe of Republicans, who
demand the whole or nothing, and is
in keeping with the whole spirit and
policy of the administration, which
aims to conciliate all interests in the
party. It is a pits that Mr. Conk
ling has ailoived his egotism to
destroy his usefulness and render him
, one of the most unpopular of public
men. It teaches that no one man can
set np his authority against a well
settled public judgment, which as a
rule, is right. The President is sus
tained because he is right, Mr. Conk
ling goes down because he is wrong.

long ago !" They were not allowed to

the 'crowd, crossed iat the !op like the
letter X, and a looped halter pending

masses, while ," Vengeance:!" was the
cry, On the nght,•suddenli,.the shout
rose, "The World! "The World!" "The

"World !" and a movement of perhaps
8,000 or 10,000 tinming their faces in
the direction of that building. began to
be executed. It was a critical moment.
What might come noone could tell, did
that crowd get in front of that office.
Police and military would have availed
little, or been too late. A telegram had
just been read from Washington
"Seward is dying." Just then at that
juncture, a man stepped forward with-a

was tremodons. The crowd stood riv

motionless orator. and thinking - of God

making, under the supervision bf the

the location of the bullet which' lies
embedded' in the President's body.
They were driven at once to the Exec

with Professor Newcomb, in the sur
, room. The instrument which
will be used in these experiments is an
extremely delicate one, known as the
induction balance. It will indicate the
location of an iron or' copper bullet
which lies imbedded at , a depth of four
or five inches, but as it is not nearly
.to the presence of lead,
there is yet some doubt as to its utility
in the President's case. If the exper
iments should prove successful the in
duction balance will soon be used to
locate the ball in the President's,

, during tue night.
T6-day, however, he was not ,quite so

11:39 P. IL—Dr. Bliss being asked
to-night whether there was anything in
the patient's condition to justify unea
siness replied • ". Nothing, whatever.
He is doing very well. The fever is
subsiding, Ole pulse is below one hun
dred and heis sleeiking quietly and will
probatoly . be as well to-morrow morning
as this morning." Regarding the
wound, Dr.. Bliss said : The process of
suppuration is going on satisfactorily,
and the track of the ball is slowly be
ing cleared by discharges. In dress
ing the wound to-night, a flexible drain
age tube, without the exertion of the
least force, was dropped into the depth
of five and a half inches, showing that
the wound is clear and open to that
distance. It has been said by persons
who have not seen; the President since
his injury, that the bullet probably did
not enter the great cavity of the'body
at aIL Onr experience with the.drain
age tube to•night confirms our previ
ously expressed judgment that the ball
did enter the abdominal cavity and
piercd the liver.• I believed it passed
through that organ and is lodged in the
aniteror wall of the abdonien." In con
clusion, Dr. Bliss' said : "There was
nothing in the Presidents nymptoms
to-night to cause anxiety or indicate
that he is not progressing as favorably
as could be expected. At 11:30 the
President's pulse is 96. He is sleep

spears at last to have repented shooting
tbe President. He is reported as hav
ing used substantially the following
language to the District Attorney to
day : "If I had _another opportunity I
would not try to shciot the President.
I thought I had an inspiration-to -re
move him, butt must have been mis
taken, I think It is ordained by God
that the President shall not be killed ,
and for that reason I would not try it
again if I had a chance. If it were' not
decreed by God that he should not be
killed how could he be alive now ?, I
held the pistolclose to his back, a 0 my
hand was steady as iron, I fired point
blank 1,0 him, and nothing but Divine
Providence oould have saved him. He
will not die, I am convinced; and I am
sorry I causeclhim so much , suffering.
It is use for any one to try to kill
him now, for if I could not do it with
the chance I had no bullet can do it.
It is so Ordained, and we must abide
the will of Heaven."

by an ex-member of the tegb.lature and
Judge, a quarrel
. A portion
of the crowd was ejected, when. they
made a furimis attack upon the house,
breaking all the windows and wrecking
the surroundings. A party of circus
men, - who approaChed. were attacked
by roughs, most of whoM were Molly
Mame& A fierce fight ensued. The
clip= men shot *t their assailanta, l and
a ball entered the house and billed John
Magin, and a second bullet struck
Mollie Murphy in the shoulder. The
excitement , ,becanie intense. " The men
in the house, armed with pistols, knives

assumed the proportions of a riot. The
circus men retreste,) to the train, where
the fight% was renewed, but the circus

The_ August number of the Nor& Ameri
can liming devOtes a liberal share of its
space to.a polemical duel between Col. In
, great exponent of the unbelief
of the day, and Judge Jeremiah S. Black, the
eminent jurist. Col. ,Ingersoll is muter of
some of the Most effective art, of the rhetori
cian and the popular orator. As an assailant
of revealed religion he has more • chance of
success in confirming the akeptieldfand car
rying away the waverinF than perhaps any
other infidel of modern times. lie is en
gaged in constant aggressive attack; and the
audiences which applaud him afford evidence
that be is producing - elfect. l l Judge Black is
distinguished alike for his steadfast faith in
orthodox Christianity and for the power and I
skill with which be 'is able to sustain any
cause in which his convictions are enlisted.
He is, like The challenger, k man nf the ,
world in his serious occupations and , modes
of thought. He is accustomed to contests in
the arena of public discussions and to the use
of all the weapons of controversy by which
men are convinced"; be is familiar with the
arguments that have been riled by the de
fenders of his cause, and be has the nerve
and vigor of a born disputant. Col. Inger.
soli has made his attack in the Review and
sustained it with all his force:as an aggres
sive. assailant. Judge Black has taken , up
the - challenge as the champion of Christian)
ity. It is Well that The flaring infidel should
be called-out and that he should he -- met by
such an antagonist. .The cause of truth can;
have nothing to fear from a contest of this
kind. Of the merits of the battle it k is fur
an interested public to judge.

White is said to he engaged on a critical and
historical sketCh of music in America, for
which he has accumulated a large mass of
material, illustrating our musical annals for
more than fifty years past. A student of mu
sic and a Practical musician from his boy
hood, he made hie entrance intoiteratureas
an amateur critic of music, and is said to
have been the first to introduce testlietic and
scientific criticism of,music into our jooinal
isn. Among American men of lettets be is.
perhaps; the only ette who is both a writer of
reputation and an accomplished musician.
The knowledge of Mr. White's project among
musicians has already secured him proffers
of aid from the most distinguished professori.
An important part of his work-ztlie history
of opera in New York—will soon appear is a
series of articles in Scribner's Monthly, :in
which it will be illustrated by portraits of the
principal artists • who have appeared in
The forthcomidg "Midsummer Number" of
Scribner's will, it is said, contain some of the
finest examples of American wood -engraving
which 'have ever appetred. An article en
titled "By the gea in Norniandy" has been
,made the occasion of preaenting a collection
of pictures by such French and American
artists as Buil% Bastion twig°, Feyen-
Perrin, Douglas 'folk, *nd 'Wm. P. W. Dana.
Thelfrontispiece of the number is . Butin's
"Siilor's Wife," engraved by Gleason.' As
promiied in a former number, Mullen Le
page's famous "First Communion" is given
here. the engraving being ape of Cole`p mas
terpieces. It is printed iu the body of the
magazine; without any type on the blot.
Readers •of Mr.. 13choyier's "Peter the
Great," in Scribner, will reinember the •order
of that famous reformer requiring Russian
seamen to be clean-shaven.
Czar, who seems to have a decided dislike
for anything which smacks of Western cul
ture, has rescinded this rule, and for the first
time in tiro 'hundred years, beards will be
worn by the sailors in.the Russian vary.
. Harper's Magazine for Augrist is magnifi-_
cently illustrated. It opens with a frontis
piece—an illustration for Margaret Veley's
poem "Almoed Illossom"---drawn by Abbey
and engraved' by Cole. In its marvellous
delioacy this cut seems to almost transcend
the possibilities of wood engraving. Mr.
