The Republican national policy with re
gard to the management of the public debt
has been so wise, so statesiumlilre,xo sound,
so honest to the national 'creditors; yet I so
little burdeusopie to the people, that all the
Republican States of the north and west
have imitated it in the 'management of
their - own State debt, and have thus heen ,
enabled to pay off and reduce . both 'the
principal and interest of their debts with
out, increasing the burdens of taxation.
Says the North American: "It is ill wind
that blows no one any good. Owing to the
political disturbance by which it has been
agitated," and,to the still unsettled condi
tion of the country, Egypt this year will
not Wive so much wheat ..and cotton to
spare for: British use as heretofore, and
this will have the effect of increasing the
demand 'for the American products. Ac
cording to the latest crop reports, the de
mand is one, which there will be -no diffi
culty in supplying."
At the Democratic State Conventiory at
Harrisburg last week,' the following ticket
was placed in nomination: Robt. •E. Pat
tison, forGOvernor; Ch..uaCey F. Black, of
York, for Lieutenant Governor; Silas M.
Clark for Supreme ' Judge; J Simpson
Africa, Secretary of Internal Affairs;
Montimer F. Elliot; for Congressman-at
Lrrge. Owing to the crowd of other mat
ter we are unable to give the proceedings
or platform this week, but will speak of
both in {► subsequent issue.
The ifnportant.que4ion as to the corona
tion of fhe Russian Czar appears to. tie - ; re
marks the Philadelphia North American,
k. -
whethe:r the anticipated attempt at - the
assassination of the Emperor shall precede,
, .
accompany or follow the act of coronation.
Fo 'it seems t 9i t
o' be tolerably clear that the
spimtors meditating these attempts aro
pOwerful enough to defy the government;
andlthat no actual discovery has yet been
i--made of the machinery or participate in
t. ,
i the conspiracy;• which latter in fact is now
s .. recognized asi being a distinct element;
fully organized, self-sustaining and in pos
session of abundant resources.
Five years ago, the United States Fish
Conimissionsent shad eggs to California,
and hatched them in the Sacramento River.
Shad have - been caught in small numbers in .
Monterey, - SanFrancisco` and Humboldt
Bays. Two years ago two were caught in
the Columbia river, Oregon, and last year
quite a numberlwere taken. Now comes
alOng the Olympia Transcript, Of Washing
ton Territory, Which says two • shad were
caught away_up in the head waters of
Puget Sound. Would it not be,singular, if
that million of shad eggs taken from the
hatchery at Port Deposit, at the mouth of
the Susquehanna River, Thadthe
Pacific coast rivers with Susquelianna'shad.
The world "do move."
Now that Guiteau is hanged and the
hanging written up, it is to be hoped that
he and all the rest of the Guiteau family
will be allowed to drop out of 'sight. The
public mind has been sated for a year with
the blasphemeous utterances Of the vilest
criminal this country ever prOduced. The
laws delays have been vexatious. The peo
ple feared that 'the assassin would escape
,justice. But they now know that, justice
i,tliough . slow, is nevertheless sure'. We
never believed in the insanity theory:,
Our.own conviction, which we think is'
founded in reason, is that in his insatiate
desire to obtain an office, which ho failed
to get from the Garfield Administration,
he conceived the idea that by killing Gar
field and making Authur President, he
would place him and his political friends
under such strong obligations to him, ‘ that
Arthur would - not only protect him in his
crime, but would give him the office he
wanted. He deliberately planned and ex.:
ecuted his purpose. His Whole conduct
shows this. The sentences of his - dying
prayer, in which he implores the vengeance
fof the Aliiiglity upon Arthur because he
did tint pardon him shows this: No, he was
not ifisarie, bnt most maliciously wicked
and :devilish.. The world is the better off
to be rid of, such a monster.
Th6j'affort for Republican union
which . i demanded by the earnest
Republican masses throughout the
State ilia length taking practical shape.
The Regular candidates and the Regu
lar State Committee are moving for
ward together in this direction.
The conference of General Beaver
and his associates yesterday was of the
highest significance and importance.
The second Republican Convention :at
Harrisburg directed the Seate Coinmit
tee to take measures towards harmony.
THE said the day after that the
Committee would naturally be expect
ed to act in concurrence with the can
, 3lidatti. Indeed; it was plain that, the
candidates must really take the initia
tive and the responsibility.' In the
confere,,nce of yesterday they met this
• obligation in a manly and, patriotic
spirit. '-They have determined to join
in a letter which skall open the ques
t' tion of an understanding with the
Independent Republicans Uy which the
union of the two elements of the party
can be effected.
We have had faith. that when the
right time should come General Beaver
would prove his honest devotion to the
true interests of the Republican party
by responding to the Ball for all reason
able efforts to promote its unity and
harmony. He has justified this confi
- deuce by the honorable and chivalrous
spirit which be manifests in the prssent
movement, and his action deseri-es
cordial recognition . His associates
have cooperated with him, and while
this is only the first step there is much
to encourage the hope os an adjustment
which will lead t) Republican success.
--Phi/a. Press. July Ist.
We hail _with pleasure this evidence
of a patriotic spirit on the part of the
candidates nominated on the Rep-
Republican ticket in taking
the initiative steps toward an amicable
adjuitment of the existing divieion ,in
the 'Republican party. The ticket
nominated by the Democrati let Har-
risburg on 1 June 28th, tho4h much
stronger than any they have, for many
years past presented, can'_ easily be
defeated by a united Republican party-
The nominees representing the re-
I tspeetive wings of the party, h j ve it in
ofpower by the, exercise, mutually
of a patriotic devotion to the principles
of the Republican party, to bring about
a cordial union of the partyjorces and
insure success in the State. T i lie Regu
lars have taken the initiative under the
lead of General Beaver who lieadS the
ticket, and he is seconded by his col
leagues. This movement is . ' highly
commendable and evinces an unselfish
devotion to the princiPliiii of. Repub
licanism. It will be seconded by every
Republican in the State whose attach
ment to principles is stronger than his
devotion to men. , The p positions ,
to be submitted as a , basis of union
should be so eminently just l and fait,
and square, that there will be no ground
left for the cavillier to stand upon.
The people will not fail to distinguish
betwixt the mere captious cavillier and
the earnest, sincere temper of a
genuine' proposition for harm!
rejection by either wing of
of an honest and reasonably
harmony will greatly weaken ]
rejecting it.
The RzeuntaceN of June Ist. our
reaeers will bear witness, Said 'We sub
mit a proposition to all the candidates on
both tickets viz: That they 'meet to-.
gether and settle the Conflict 'independ
ent of dictation from any quarter)
They are all intelligent men. and if
they .are imbued with that unselfish
devotion to the cause of 'Republicanism
they profess, they can lead the Repub
licans of the State to al successful and s
satisfactory solution of the whole diffi;
calty. Dont - step to ask Cameron or
Mitchell, Quay or Wolfe; Cooper
McKee, what you shall do, but at once'
what the duty of the hour demands of
you.. Follow Marshall's • example and
decline and demand that,a union con
vention be. held under the !new rules
and have party reform, now. If the
candidates will adopt these snggestions
they will be wiser tan the bosses and
wiser than the conventions which
placed them in nomination.': :
Our mind is unchanged in this regard
and we therefore hail with :,sincere
joieing•miy inoi;ement that Books to the
restoration of party unity in our
State. r

In a letter of reasonable length, it is not
possible to give a detailed-report of that
transpired at the Jail of the District of
Columbia on Friday st connected With the
execution of the man who one year. ago
assassinated President James A. Garfield.
I must therefore content myself yAth,
some of the most notable incidents.
The-mock heroism displayed by this great
criminal through all his confinement, did
not desert him in the final hour. ' , '
The efforts of his attorney; to prevail
upon President Arthur to grant him" a . re
prieve for a short period were not entirely
abandoned until nithinless than a, week of
the day set for the execution. - Five days
prior to that 414 , he was informed that - the .
last hopowas gone. This information, j to
all outward appearance, produced no
change in the mental or physieal conductor
appearunce.of the', prisoner. 'Up to the
last night prior to his execution, he ate and:
slept well. But the - Jest night prior to, the
dread ordeal he tossed restlessly on his
couch until morning. ;After Ipintaking of
his, last breakfast, he was escorted by . his
watches Ito the bath and he enjoyed his. last
bath. Re said but little, and I appeared as
though in deep meditation. The day prior
and during the early morning of Friday 1 he
employed his time in writing, land composed
the prayer, which he read upon'the scaffold
and which for the purpose of , reserving it,
we reproduce in connection * 1
th the ac
count of his execution: - The first sign. of
emotion was at 12 o'clock, T . when the
guard of soldiers marched into the corridor
and brought their muskets to the floor. As
the sound struck his 'ear, he Ifor the • mo-
ment became tremulous with lemotion. He
soon recovered _ himself,
"under the reas
suring words of the Rev. Hicks, his spirit
ual adviser who remained in `his cell all
the morning and accompanied him to' the
scaffold. At a few minutes after 12 o'clock
Warden Crocker appeared atlthe door of his
cell and read to him the . death warrant,
which the Warden preedtld with some
remarks reciting the events _ the year.
.Guitoati cut him short by sayings- "I want
to hear no mpre I Lspit upon that docu
ment ! • You will all go to hell who take,
part in killing me:" • Immediately after the
reading of the document the arras Of the
prisoner were pinioned and - 1
began, formed as follows:
Gen. CroChet, the. warden with Mr.
Robert Strong:" C -
- Rev. W. W. Hicki, of the Tabernacle
Church, (Congregational.) .1
• 1 . The prisoner with Messrs Woodward and
Mewls. John 11. Jones and V. W. !And
rn• -. •
` Messrs. W. C. Crocker and . T. John
As the prisoner stepped but into--:the
corridor, he gave one look backward into
his cell, placed himself between the', guards .
and moved forward. The l i seenes ', ail this
moment were deeply impressive. A crowd
of about 250 persons wen 3. inside the jail
inclosure, watching every Movement and
pressing forward to get 'a glimpse of the'
doomed criminal. Outside of the jail yard
stood a crowd of sevenl thousand people
who could not• gain admittance, waiting in
brethless silence to catch the; first word that
Guiteau was dead. Thedistance from the
prisoner's cell to the , gallowtk was more than,
fifty yards, through the corridors of the
prison, As the nAassin, iimnecliately he-,
hind the warden, emerged fom the gate at,
the end of the long corridor, his eyes were
restless and he appeared .under great . ex
citement. pie° muscles about his mouth
twitched and his face grew deathly pale as
he advanced toward the gallows. It was a
moment of profound silenCe, broken only
by the tread of the procession. Guiteau
walked on withoht
falterinT and ascended
the steps of the ',' sca ff old. He stopped . a
moment as he reached the last step as if ex
hausted, but was soon helped n E 4 and then
stood on the platform behind the drop
i facing the spectators. '
, 1 ,
i I
The crowd at this moment began Jost'
ling each other to get - in full view,. wh i ch
attracted the attention of the prisoner,
and for a moment he' scanned the noisy
flushing crowd below. He then surveyed
the frame-work of the gallows above him,
and was looking from the kalllows to the
crowd when, on a motion from the warden,
all hats were removed and the religious ex
ercises began. This consisted of a prayer
by the minister. Guiteau meanwhile stand
ing with bowed head. Br) Hicks • then
ihe Bible, and the p ' •
opened t der, with a
i rt
strop e oice, read a selection -from the 10th ,
chapte l of Matthew, from the 28th to the
41st veise, inclusive, beginning with: "And
fear n 4, them which kill the Body, but are
not able to _kill the soul, butt rather fear ,
him which is able to destroy ;both soul and
body in hell:?' - '
Then follinved the prisoners priyer,
which he read from manuscript, the minis-
inter holding it for him while he read. No
tremor was notiPeable in his voice, but a
decided emphasis when allusion was made
to President Arthur and the future destiny
of the nation.' 1,
After closing his prayer, he was' allowed
to read a foolish little, poem, which wits the
merest drivel and nonsense, after which
the attendants qukkly pinioned his legs,
placed the noose around his neck, and drew
the black cap over his head and face, and
the assassin stood ready for the final launch
into eternity. j
AS 100 n as the cap was drawn down
Gniteau shouted in a loud voice, "Ready !
Glory ! Glory !". at the same time dropping
a piece of paper, Which was to be a signal
that he was ready, and the drop fell, and
the tragic scene was ended. Thafe was
hardly a perc:eivable motion of the body;
and after half an hour it [was cut down and
mny. The
the .patty
:.,basis of
placed in the- coffin. 1 .
AS soon as the crowd outside the jail ,got
the word that G9iteau was hanged, they
rent the air with shduts of rejoicing. Per
sons came many hundred miles to be pres
ent at the execution of the most . execrated
criminal in American history, but failed 'of
the opportunity -of witnessing . It. A very
general expression Of relief is heard 'on all
hands-that his miserable life is ended.
Yesterday, July 24, was the.anniversary
of the woundiiig of President Garfield. The
',Vermont Avenue Christian Church (Dis
-ciples) where he •worshipped, of which de
nomination he was a member, made •it the
occasion for laying the . corner stone of the
a handsome brick edifice now in process of
construction:: The ceremonies were of
special :interest. A general invitation was
extended .to members of the Christian
church throughout the country. The cere
mony of laying the corner . stone took place
at 6 - o'clock p. in. President •Tringdale, of,
Hiram College, Ohio, delivered the address,]
and 'gave an interesting history of the rise;
progress, and present membership of the
denomination known as Disciples or Chris
tians. Hon. A. S. Willis, of Kentucky, and
Hon. A. H. Pettit:lone, of Tennessee, who
were students at Hifi= College, delivered
addresses, Rev. Dr. Butler;of the Lutheran
Church, Verinont Avenue; made the open
.,ing prayer, and Rev. F. D. Power, pastor
of the church; Chaplain .of the House of
'RepreeentatiVes pronounced the benedic-'
tion. The allusions to the lifd history of
the late. President Garfield and, the tragic
ending of his useful life were touching in
the txtreme. The whole ceremonies at
tendant upon the occasion were of a highly
interestiqgccharacter. It is expected !that
the new church structure will be ready for
occupancy by the congregation, which now
numbers about 400, by December next.

• .The vitality.of the Presbyterian Church
hi the United States is strikingly attested
by theinergy with which it carries on the
great work preaching the gospel to the
heathen world. During the past thirty
years it has spent more than ten million
dolaS in supporting missionaries in foreign
lands and upwards of six hundred thousand
dollars has been appropriated for the main
tenance of its missions for the next twelve
months. If the material strength and
spiritual earnestness of a church are in
proportion, to its missionary enterprise,
Presbyterianism must be in- a healthy and
vigorous condition. • f

composed by himself, which he calls
." Simplicity, or religious b-thy talk"
after reading it aloud he attempted to
sing it, bUt broke dovin in the, effort,
which would have appeared ridiculous

Guiteau then talked about his future.
He remarked that his heart-was tender.

not because of -any great weakness, for

presented to Hicks the bookS that have
been his companions during lonely
hours. He told Hicks he would-like to

Stprtly before l eleven Guiteau called for
some paper, and for twenty minutes
busied himself making a copy of his
prayer to be read
.upon the scaffold.
As his hands `;will be pinioned Hicks
will hold the manuscript while Guiteau
reads. NOW l that he is employed, he
appears much calm r, and is rapidly
completing the work of writing in a
large, round, legible hand. At 11
o'clock contrary to the general expecta
tion, Mrs. Scoville, arrived at the jail
and;sought admission. She appeared
to be laboring under great excitement.

and at first started to go to her, but

to interfere, haying, " I will leave-the

It is believed that he would not desire to

dress, puttini' on a pair of navy blue

out of-the dcior and said, " Heis ready
for the doctor, now, and wants the
flowers to clinic.' Another guard took
a uicssage . and hurried off,' and soon
returned with Dr. Hicks, who went in
to the cell. Guitead• was then appar
ently very .coraposed. Atter a short
conference with the warden, John W.
Giiiteau went outside the
.jeilto see his
sister: He found - her in: great excite
ment, bordering on hysterics, but -lie
soon calmefl her and dissuaded her
from any attempt to gain admissi6n.
She aeknowledged the propriety of such
- a course, but said she 'could nit
bly remain in the city during aIL the
Wretched hours of the morning.. She
brought with her the flowers Giiiteaa
asked for, and they were taken to the
priloner. Sfrs. . Scoville also brought
a handsome floral cross and anchor.
She will beepertnitted to view the re
mains and place a. 14.10 - offering upon

'While Hicks, was in thecell Giiite.iii
madel some i regnests as to the execu;
ti4fi, and having copied the prayer, and
other writings, tore up the originals.
He sent ford the jail bootblack arid gave
his. shoes to shine for the last time.
Dinner was brought and he ate with
much relishi The dinner consisted of .a
prinndqof broiled steak, fried potatoes,
four slices of toast; a quart of . coffee! ' of
which very,)ittle Was left. Hicks,
when he came out:of his cell, said; the
prisoner had not the slightest fear. 'We
have had a pleasant religious talk. 'Be
feels now that his . preparation is
finished, and he is 'ready for the last
formality.commitS himself to God
with confid :nee. I think he will show
some emotion, because the nervous
strain is so Igreat.- .
Shoitly before Guit‘au seemed to
break dowricompletely, and burst 'into
tears and sobbed hysterically. Hicks
fanned and tried to calm . him: At
half-past eleven preparations began to
be made for the execution. - At 11:50
a detachment of artillery '.wris '.formed
• . on' the east side of . the rotunda and
brought their muskets to parade rest,
At that tine -there were .about 250
people in the rotunda. HickS was with
the prisoner l engaged in prayer.--
Vruiteau show'ed great. ,nerydusness
and appeared greatly startled when he
heard -the rattle of inusxets on the stone
floor, ;of the rotunda. i From that
moment 'iteau appc,,red to' be
thoroughly g oyercOme with • emotion.
He wept freely and seemed: to - Ile in
gteat anguish. An autopsy will be
performed at .2 o'clock in the chapel of
the jail: , The scene on the rotunda
while waiting for the prisoner was one
long tc.le remembered ; soldiers were
drawn ity.oe one, side end, a ton ;;line
of speetatdre opposite them on the
After the death warrant had been
read, the prisoner became much more,
composed, and ,turning away began' o
brush his hair with his old apparent
swaggering_ sang froid. ,
At 12:25 the stea d whistle was
blown at -,the work-houSe near the jail.
TwO minutes after the iron gates at the
end Of the corridor . clicked, and the
warden appeared, and a moment later
Guiteau with , face paled. The mus.
cles -of his , mouttr moved about ner
vously. There wis itIO signs of falter.-
ing.,-. The procession moved quickly to
the scaffold.- Guiteau ascended the
twelve somewhat steep steps with as
a te
much steadiness as - could be e. eted
from a man whose arms were , ightly
pinioned behind-Wm. At the,l t step
he faltered a moment but *as assisted'
by two / officers. Gulteau; was placed
immediately behind the drop with his
face to the front of the scaffold. Cap
tain Coleman stood upon, his right.
Robert Strong on his left and Wood
ward . behind' him: ' Jones took -lis
position on the north side. . .
Warden Crocker tcok his position
the southeast corner of the structure.
There was a slight delay while 250 or
more spectators were pushing through
the door from_the rotunda to the corri
dor, at-the lower end of which the gal
lows was pl4ced, Guiteau gazed on
the crowd .spid looked on the - beam
overhead and quickly surveyek-all the
dread paraphernalia.
Father, out .Of the depths we cry to Thee.
Hear Thou our.supplicatiim, for the sake of
Jesus Christ the Saviour, who has made'full
propitiation for us Behold this, Thy ser-
vent. No: humbly pray theist Thou will

During thl prayer . Guiteau stood
With bowed Ittad. At its conclusidn

the manuscript which was prepared by
the prisPner this morning, and held it
befoiel, him while Guiteau read. While

,movea several ti mes from
one foot to the other. He soon - re - -
covered - his ccimposure, - looked over the

HOW • THH P14:1171t WAS Itt AD.
At several poitits

paused and'endeavored to impart in-'

angered at snmething.. Thi2i peculiarity'

finished reading,he again surveyed the,

.they may be rendered effective. the
ide t - is, that of is ehild7;lbabh:ing, his

this morning hbout 10 o'elock.''.
then commeueed to chant these verses
in a sad .doleful style :
1 am,going to the Lorily, I, am so glad
I am the Lordy, I am so glad.
Pam going to the Lordy ; glory hilielujah, glory

I am going to the Lordyj

And that islhe reason I am going to the Lord.

- Here Guiteau's.• voice failed, and lie;
bowed his head and brokei'intb sobs.
But he rallied 3. little and went.on with

But they have murdered me for it, and.. that is

. •
Here again . his feelings oVereatne
him and he. leaned his .head
. oti the
shoulder of Mr. Hicks and sobbed piti
fully. Still he went,on.
I wonder what I will do when I 'get tb the
Lordy. . . ! ! 3 , • ,
guess that I will weep no more.'wlicargid to

Pere there was another intertuption
caused by sobs And emotimi which he
was unable to repress. oe wept bit-t•
terly. With quiVcringlius and mourns
ful tones, he went on to finish his ditty';,
I wonder what I Will see, when I get to the Lordy.,
I expect to ate, moat splendid thing's beyond all ,
I , earthly cOncepti?n,l
When I am with the Lordy, Glory hallelujah,
( - Raising his ,voice to the high it
pitch he could command.) •
Glory hallelujah I ani..7ith the Lord. •
Thus closed the'cha, and then R -+ .I
Dr. : Hicks gave to Guiteau his final
benediCtion. .
Guiteau when het' came into the ro
tunda from his cell ,looked calm 'and
colleet4d, but very pale. - His arias
were pinioned behind and he held his
head erect. lie•gdted upon the crowd
without flinching. .He wore a black'
suit, and instead of a collar had ahaird
kerchief thrown loosely about his neck.
Those expecting distressing scenes-.w6•e
disappointed. Guiteau walked firmly
through the rotunda and crowd. s He
stumbled on one of the steps ,of the
scaffold, but recovered at once. When
he began to read his voice .was loud
rand firm. He gave the ' words now
and then a sort of singing inflection,
like a preacher reading a Ifyinn.
After Dr. _Hicks bad pronounced the
benediction, Old Bob Strong came for.
ward in his grizzly personality and tied
Guiteau's legs, spending it seemed; a
needless long time at it, for the sus
pense was terrible. Thei Strong ad
justed the rope about ;,he n, ck, Guiteau•
bending his head and stooPing lo per
mit it to be-done with' greater ease.
The knot was carefully placed behind
the.' left er, Guiteau flinching no more
than a statute% Then Old -Bob took,
from'his grizzly coat' the horrible black
cap and pulled it .over the - murderer's
'head, the .latter shooting " glory,"
" glory,''" glory."
A more perfect picture of -resi& - rnation
could not be imagined'' than `Guiteau
waiting for his legs to be tied. He
stepped i forward, so as to get to the
centre of the trap, stood erect as an
Indian, and, • with his head !well
Indanced, shut his eyes; Not a feature
gave way or showed any weakness. At
last. everything was ready. No.thing
more remained to be dime. The atten
dants had stepped off the trap.
The condemned .man stood alone On
the frail bridge separating this world
from eternity. The vulgar crowd
looked up expectant. -- Nature is hashetl
the sun shines calmly through the win
dows, bright with warmth and joy.s ,
The warden 'bows his head ; the
preacher turns. his back from the spei`t
tacle and kneels at he rail, his Bibleini
his hand. The guards half turn away.
From under the black cap comes the
word, strong, and !distinct, " ready."
The criminal at the same; time drops a
piece of - white paper . froin his hand;
the executioner from his blind cell
looks through a little - - We in the cur
tain. He hears the . word. He sacs
the signal. quick pull at the rope
within WI hand, the bolts arc slipped
.from their places, the trap falls like
lightning, and the end is at hand. Then
a shout -vent up most joyously, as
though some great victory had been
won. • The.prisoners• locked up in their
cells joined in the - char, and clanked
their tin cups sad plates against the
iron gratings - ,of their pens.
.This was echoed outside by the
voices of aj thou Sand or more peopli
who hurrahed lustily. There Was a
general onslaught by the populace upon
the door, which
..was so powerful that
the officerikwere , unable to withstand it.
Hundredslif people crowded into the
office and ,t ere was 'a terrible crush at
the doors.'
i' • •
For at least forty seconds after the
drop fell the body hung motionless,
then there_ was a slight motion of the
shoulders and legs, due to muscular .
contraction.. Three minutes after the
trap fell. the body was lowered to be
examined, by - the physicians., There ,
-was a decided action of the' hart for
,fully.fourteen. minutes, and the pulse
Iluttere& two minutes longer. When
the body
,had hung with the
.feet just
touching the groudd for over, half an
hour it was lowered into the coffin,
Which was waiting for it under the scaf
fold. - When the : body was lowered the
black cap was removes and the face
exposed; .The fatureS were pallid and
compressed. .About
.the mouth' there
was considerable moisture. '
After the body had been arranged in
the Warden Crocker ascended
the steps of 'the scaffold, and, addre.stiing
the crowd which was kept back' froth
the scaffold by a line of offieers,.stld
those who 'desired could pass along the
side of thOseaffold and view the licitly.
Then the crowd of siketators was
- formed info" line, and, passing between
the scaffold and the wall of the jail ;
viewed the dead face. Some jail oil'
cers, two or three physicians and Dr.
Hicks stood pbout the coffin. John W.
Guiteaujoined this . company and tuf,netl
his dead' bfother's face to keep away
; the flies. .When liberty was given to
the crowd t.. view the remains the seat-,
fold was at Once filled with people who
-curiously examined every joint and bolt.
At •• 1;40 MI, the! lid of the coffin.
was Rut in place, qui the body was
borne 'to the chapel, where the
physicians who were to- make the
autopsy: were assembled. •
Dr. Blig§ arrived at the jail. at. :1:30
in the afternoon, .ant joined, the Physi

was found:in a normal condition and
weighed forty-nine ()tikes. The heart
