PiofCMorl'.T. Miles, ot this city, who win
honored with an Invitation to attend tho au
topry of Oulteau's bodyat Washington yoster
day, was called upon at his residence, No. 2 1
Cathedral streot, last night by a 0'irt reporter.
1'iofeseor Mites said that ho was sorry to dis
appoint tho especial Ions ot Iho public, but ho
tenlly thought It useless tor him to visit Wash
ington yesterday on tho Invitation, bt-eause In
his opinion tlio autopsy would bo outlrcly
superficial, and, ho thought, unproductive ot
any real knowledge ot tho man's meat it con
dition whllo ntlvo. Unless there was
a grots dc-rect lu tho brain tho more vlow
would not dlscloso nuy data upon which
tlio sanity or Insanity of tho man could bo
based. To arrive fully and satisfactorily nt
tho correct condition ot tho bralu It will bo
necessary to placo It in somo preserving aud
hardening fluid which will prepare It for
lmuoilticnnd allow ot n careful and faithful
moauirctuout ot tno vm, tissues. Until
lhla.19 done or a plastor cast made m u. ,,in
the result ot any examination with the brain
In Its original state will bo generally devoid ot
accuracy. In yesterday's autopsy tho apcclllc
gravity couiu do rcauuy ouiuiuou, nui it is
strictly ossontlal thatcomploto mo.asuromonts
should he taken nnd comparisons made with
oilier human binlns In order to dis
cover any deviations from tho standard ot
binlns ot persons ot sound mind.
Professor Miles exhibited a collection nt
brains, Including that ot n unco notorious
blind criminal ot Baltimore, showing tho per
fect rannner In which they may bo indurate!
or casts mado of them lu plaster. In tho casts
tha v at lous formations nro as faithfully pre

Is removed from the skull. Profess r Miles
