On that other facts had come to light asl
Conclusive as any which came out upon,
the stand, irepliedling Mrs. Surratt in
these deeds of de: i kth. Puring the ride
to Surrattsville, on the afternoon of the
I4th, she inquired of a person whh lived
on the road, if the pickets remained out
all night, and on being told that they
acre called in at eight o'clock, replied
that she was glad to know it. On the
• .
evening of the • 14th of . April she was
pacing her sitting room, counting her
beads, in a state of highly nervous excite
: meat: A torchlight procession was pa- i
rading- the city, in . celebration of • 0101
national victories ;,she inquired of Weich
man jthe Idirectien the procession was
taking, remarking that she had great
interest in that
. procession. She desired
Welehman and her daughter, Miss Sur
ratt,also Miss Fitzpatrick, to "pray for
her intentions." These young people
were making some noise with their talk
ing, and laughter and she excitedly bade
all of them tolleave the' room. Before
this; some ono came to the house and
rang the bell' Mrs.. Surratt answered at,
the door.- It was aferwards known that the'
person who Oiled was J. , Wilkes Booth,
who doubtlesg came to inquire the result
of her visit td Lloyd's tavern, and to as ! :.
certain if tbb arrangements made , were
such that he might rely upon them.
The fact that Lloyd had thelfshooting
irons" ready,in obedience to Mrs.Surratt's
instructions, and that Booth and Harold,
in thcir flight after the guilty deed, did
call at Lloyd's tavern, and obtained one
of the two carbines, Booth confessing his
inability from his wound to carry the
ether, leaves no_question es to Mrs. Sur
ratt's guilty knowledge of and participa
tion in the conspiracy.
• Another proof of the guilt of. this wo
man is circumstantially furnished in the
return of Payne to her house, as to -a
' Place of refuge, after three days and
!pal/Ls of skulking before the pursuing

upon his shoulder, rod upon his head, for

The Prd'sident of the U. S. Sanitary
Commission, Dr,„. Bellows, has issued a
farewell adress to the branches and aid
societies, notifying them that their labor
in collecting supplies for the Commission
now ends. Such supplies as are on hand
are to be forwarded to the receiving de
pots. , In the Eastern department, the
work of supply is substantially done,
with the exception of a small servicqstill
required in the neighborhood of Wash
ington. In the Western departmet it
may continue, on a very diminished s ‘ cale,
a couple of months !alga. Texas
and the Gulf possibly the supply'service
'may last all summer. But by economy
of the stores in hand, the Commission
feel authorized to say that, after collect.
ing what is already in existence, they
will be able to meet all just demands
made upon them. The, President speaks.
earnestly of the l aid the ladies of the,
'country have ,ziven to this benevolent
enterprise, and closes his address with
the following
"We have tried to do our duty impar
tially, dilligently, wisely. For the irmaas
of carrying on 'this vital work, which has
grown up in our hands, keepinr , pace:
with the growing immensity of the war,
and winch we arc now about to lay down,
after giving the American public an
account of our stewardship, we arc chiefly
indebted to the money created by the
fairs which American women inaugur ted
and condupted, and to the supplies col,
looted by' you under our organization.
To you, then, is finally/ due the 'largest
part of whatever gratitude belongs to the
Sanitary C3minission. 'lt is as it should
be. The soldier will return to his home
to thank his own wife, mother,. sister,
daughter, for so tenderly looking' after
him in camp and field, in hospital and
prison; and thus it will be seen that it
is the homes of the country which have

Secretaryship 'of War and subsequent )
short stay in Russia, which at the time'
were thought to indicate 4-want of confi
dence in liiiii on the part of the Admin
istration. It appears, however, from the
present account, that the contrary was
the Case, and that his withilrawal from
office was very creditable to him. The
1 1
ifisaster to our arms in .1861 seemed to,
render necessary the ; calling of General
McClellan to the command of the army,
and he being able to dictate the terms of I
Lis' acceptance, did not fail to use his I
power. lie stipulated that he should
pass upon all appointments and promo
tions, and the President and G;en. Cam
eronfelt compelled, fur the s#e of the
country and its safety, to accede to them.
Things went on from bad to worse, and i
Gen. Cameron said that it was necessitry I
to break the agreement with *McClellan,
even at the sacrifice of his (the Secret -
' ry's) own . interests. Mr. Lincoln agree
with him in his view of the case, b t
thought it itorMssible to retract the terms
pledged to Mc - Clellan. General Cameron
replied, "I will resign, and you can ap
point another to my position." The
/President objected that it would ruin
General Cameron politically, but the
latter insisted, and it was finally agreed
that the resignation should; take place—,
General Cameron to be sent o Russia as'
a mark of the confidence of the American
ration, and Mr. Stanton be apiminted hie
successor, who would be sure to clip the
wings of th., "Young Napoleon" as soon
as possible., General Cameron did not I
want, the Russian appointment, but took'
it for the causeabove assigned, on the
condition that he might 'resign as soon as
he chose. ''Mr. Stanton succeeded him,
and if the foregoing statement be true,
we have an explanation f the coolness
which was apparent between Stanton arid
McClellan from the first.
Tho difficulty of punishirw. Jeff.
DaviS without making a martyr of i3 him
has occurred to ? very one, and some aro
very much annoyed by it. To secure the
punishment, and yet avcid martyrdom,
the New York corresponderdof the Lon
don S . pectator has hit upon the following
plan :
"Mr. Davis murt bo condemned to
death, but were I President Johnson, I
would neither pardon him and send him
into exile; nor allow him to bo hanged.
if he Ism pardoned on condition of exile,
Ise would merely lead a comfortable, per
haps a luxurious life abroad,, rt3ebiving
ninch attention from certain people. .11. p
must be conspicuously Punished, and y9t
not made a martyr either by his impris
onment or 'his death. Therefore, upon
his condemnation I would reprieve his
sentence indefinitely, on condition that
he gave his parole never to 'leave the
country and to report himself once a
month to the judicial or military officer
of the Republic, nearest 6 i his place of
residence, and once a year t'(> the Presi
dent of the United States.! From any
position of public trust hey is of course
cut off. If necessary
. he should be com
fortably suppoilted at the expense of the
nation. Ilis only punishment should be
that of owing his life to the ctmency of
the Government he sought t .destroy,
and the becoming humiliation Of publicly
acknowledging its authority once a month
while he lived. And such an example
would be more instructive than a hang
meg. Thus would Ido with the chief
civil and military leaders of the rebellion."
