SHOOTING OF BOOTH.
NEW YORK, April 28.
It appears by the Herald's account
Uolonel baker sent .Laeul. Uol tJongffr ana
Lieut. Baker of his detectives, with Lieut.
Doherty of his cavalry in parpuit of Booth
On reaching Garrett's farm they were
told by a son of Garrett that two men
were in the barn. This was at 2 o'clock
on Wednesday morning. Proceeding to
the barn, Lieut. Baker was sent forward
and called upon Booth to come out and
give up his arms, and surrender, and that
young Garrett would go into the barn to
receive the arms.
When tbe boy entered the barn, Booth
ezclbimed to him: "Get out of here, you
have betrayed me."
A colloquy then ensued, of which the
following is the tut lance :
Lieut. Baker "You .must give up your
arms and surrender : we have come to lake
you prisoner and will treat you as a pris
oner. We will cive you five minutes to
surrender, or we will burn tbe barn."
.Booth " w ho are you, ana wnai ao you
Instructions had been given to Lieut.
Biker not to disclose the character of those
who were in pursuit.
Lieut, Baker "We want you : we intena
to take you prisoner."
Booth "Ibis is a bard case; it may De
that I am to be taken by my friends."
After some further colloquy ot tnis sort,
Booth, seemingly convinced that be was in
the foils ot Federal soldiers, said : "Give me
chance for my life; I am a cripple, with
one leg. Withdraw your men one hundred
yards trom the barn and I will come out
and fight you."
.Lieutenant Baker "we aia noi come
here to light, but to take you prisoner.
You must give up your arms and surren
Booth "Let me have time to consider."
A conversation in the barn between
Booth and Harrold then took place which
was not overheard by the party ouUide.
In about fifteen or twenty minutes Booth
called out, "Who are you? I could have
picked off half a dozen ot your men while
we were talking. 1 could have shot you
two or three times, but 1 don't want to kill
Lieutenant Baker "Then give up your
arms and surrender. We have come to
Booth "I will never surreuder; I will
never be taken alive."
Lieutenant Baker "If you don't do so
immediately we will set fire to the barn."
Booth "Well, my brave boys, prepare
stretcher for me."
After this a conversation took place be
tween Booth and Harrold, during which
Booth was beard to say, "You damned
coward, will you leave me now? But go,
go; I don't want you to stay with me."
He then addressed tbe party outsidr?, and
said . " There is a man here who wants to
Lieut. Baker " Then let him hand out
his arms and oome out."
Another talk here occurred between
Booth and Harrold, in whiiih it appeared
that the latter was begging to be allowed
to take out some arms ilh him, and Booth
was heard to say, " Go away from me, I
don't want anything more to do with
you." Harrold then came to tbe door and
asked to be let out. Lieut. Baker said,
No, hand out your arms." Harrold re
plied, "I have none."
Lieut, Baker Yes you have ; you car
ried a carbine when you came here; you
mart hand it out."
Booth " He has no arms, lhay are all
mine. Upon my word as a gentleman he
has no arms. Ail that are hme belong to
Lieut. Baker then approached the door,
Harrold thrust out his hands and was
pulled from the door, tied tnd placed in
charge of a guard. Colonel Conger was
then satisfied that further parley with
Booth was vain, and proceeding to the
other side of the barn, he pulled out a
whisp of hay and lighted it.
Within a few moments tbe blazing hay
lighted up the whole of tbe barn. Booth
was discovered leaning on a crutch which
he threw aside and with a carbine in his
hand came towards the side where the fire
had been kindled, paused and looked at
the fire a moment and then started towards
the door. When about the middle of the
barn he was shot. Then Colonel Conger
and Baker at once entered tbe barn and
brought Booth out. After identification
by the War Department the body was
properly covered in the clothing which
was upon it.
The Herald's correspondent says the par
ley with Booth lasted a long time; that
Booth told Lieutenant Doheny be had a
a bead drawn on him and could shoot him
if he chote. That Booth could see those
outside plainly while they could not see
mm insiae; tnat when the tire was lighted
Booth could be seen and then Lieutenant
Dougherty ordered Sergeant Corbett to
nre, wmcn ne aid through one oi we crev
ices. Booth was armed with two six bar
reled and one seven barrel revolver.
When the party started to return with
the body, Harrold refused to walk, woen
rope was fastened to his neck and the other
end of it was fastened to the saddle ol one
of the cavalry men. As soon as a horse
iwnld be procured, he was mounted. The
World's correspondent says it learned that
lla rjld joined Booth just after the assss
sination, and it is believed brought the
hone into the alley.
The following is the statement of Per.
geant Bjston Corbetl: J Jn Tuesday P. M,
my superior officer, Col. Doherty, received
information that two persons answering to
tbe description of Booth and his accomplice
Harrold, were concealed in a' barn on the
plscs of Henry Garrett, about three miles
from Port Koyal, in tbe direction of Bow
ling Green. They then captured a man
named Jelt, who ferried Booth and his
companion across the Potomac At first b
denied knowing about the matter, but
when threatened with death if he did not
reveal the spot where the artassins were
secreted, be told us where they could be
found and piloted us to tbe place.
.Booth and Harrold reached the barn
about dusk on Tuesday evening. The barn
was at once surrounded by our cavalry, and
some of our party engaged in conversation
with Booth from tbe outeide. He was
oommanded to surrender several times, but
made no reply to the demand, save that
"it you want me you must take me.
When first asked to surrender, he asked
"Who do yoa take me for ?" A short time
after, in response to the question as to
wnetner tnere was anybody else with him
in the barn, he slated that he was the only
person in tbe building ; that his companion
Harrold had taken another direction, and
was Deyond the reach of capture.
At three o'clock or a little after, the barn
was fired. Before the Mimes were kindled
Booth bad the advantage of us in respect
to light. He could see us but we could not
see him. But after that the tables were
turned againet him. We could see him
plainly, but could not be seen by him. The
names appeared to contuse hi.u, una he
made a spring forward to the dcor, as it to
attempt to work his way out. As he passed
byonecf the crevices I fired at Lim: I
aimed at nis body, did not want to kill him
I took deliberate aim at his shoulders, but
my aim was too high. Tbe ball struck
him in the head just below the right ear.
and passing through came out about an
inch above the left ear. I think he stop
ped to pick up something just as I fired,
and that may probably account for bis re
ceiving the ball in the head. I was not
over eight or ten yards distant from him
when 1 bred. 1 was afraid that it I did
not wouFd him ho would kill some of our
men. Af.er be wss wounded I went into
the barn. Booth was lying in a reclining
DotitionontheOcor. I asked him. "Where
are you wounded?" Ue replied in a feeble
voice, his eye beaming wuh a pc-culiar
brilliancy, "In tte head, you have rin sncd
me. ll was then carried out of tne
burning buildicg into the optn air, where
he died about two houis afterwards.
About an hour bofore be breathed his last
he prayed for us to Ebout him through tbe
heart. His sufferings were intense. Al
though hemigbt havo killed f-vurnlof our
party, he seemed to be afraid to fire. Mine
was the only shot on eiUer side. Wben
he fell he had in his hand a six-barreled
revolver, and at his feet ws King a seven
shooter, which he dropped after he was
wounded. 1 wo otber revolvers were found
near him. He declared that the arms be
longed to him, and that Harrold had noth
ing to do with the murder. We gave him
bran by. and four men went in search tf a
doctor, who was found about four miles
away, but when be arrived Booth was dy
ing, ue aid not talk much after receiving
is wound. Wben asked if he had any
thing to say, he replied, "I die for my
country," and asked these standing by to
tell hn mother so. He diu not deny his

notified to disregard his orders cannot
long retain with self respect or even be re

J. WILKES BOOTH.
The Commercial Advertiser's Washing
ton apecial says there are reasons for be
lieving Booth was affiance! to an estima
ble lady in New York. It is certain there
is no ground for the rumor that he had won
the affections of the daughter of a promi
nent New England Senator; there was
nothing more than a drawing room ac
quaintance between the parties.
On Booth's person was found a diary in
which he had recorded the events of his
flight, and other matters calculated to con
firm his guilt connected with therebel gov-
ernment. There was also found in his
pockets sterling exchange, obtained in Can
ada last October, where the diabolica't plot
was doubtless arranged.

Since tbe departure of the remains of

not to hasten her departure from the
White House, and she will remain there
until the close of May, when it is her
present intention to locate herself in Chi
cago. Her eldest son, Captain Lincoln,
proposes to study law in that city, where

THE BODY OF COL. KELLEY.
The body of Colonel Kelley, Chief Com
missary of General Sherman's command,
who died at City Point, Wednesday, of
pneumonia, arrived here to-day en route to
the friends of the deceaced in theNortb.
A very great curiosity prevails as to the
disposition to be made of the remains of
Booth, but it seems that the authorities
are not inclined to give the wretched car
cat the honor of meeting the public gaze,
and it will probably bo deposited in what
ever place promises the most utter obscuri
ty. Yesterdty a photographic view of the
body was taken before it was removed
frcin the monitor. It was then placed on
an ordinary gray army blanket, in which
it was sewed up. A plain ba.ket shaped
box, measuring six feet by two, had been
previously made in a joiner's shop for the
remains, but was net used.

Sorrow and Devotion of tho People.
Testorday was among the most memorable
and historic ever known to tbe city
of Cleveland. The occasion itself, the
preparations for and the ceremonial at
tending it, the vast throng of spectators
that gathered to obaarve It, the universal
grief and moarning which it called forth,
combined to ronder tbe day most memo
rable for Badness, solemnity and sublimity.
The greatest and beet man of the whole na
tion, the savior of the country from the
perils of the moat gigantic treason
in tbe annals of history, holding
the highest office in the gift of
the people, was dead, and not only dead,
but foully murdered by a traitorous assas
sin in the very summit of his glory, at the
threshold of a second term of office, to
which he had been chosen by the suffrages
of a grateful people, and in which he hoped
to reap the fruit of the suffering and sacri
fices of his first administration. A sorrow
ing people, mourning a loss which all felt
most bitterly, were following him to his
grave among the prairies, with every dem
onstration of grief and woe. Cleveland had
become one of the stations in this great fu
neral procession, and yesterday was for a
short time the depository of the mortal re
mains of the dead President, Such was the
occasion that wrapped our city in sombre
weeds, and drew to it, by thousands and
tens of thousands, the people of the sur
THE CITY IN MOURNING.
Tho symbols of sorrow and grief which
have draped the city in darkness since the
announcement of the President's death,
Were increased ten-fold yesterday. Beauti
ful, tasteful and costly decorations, all most
mournfully expressive, hung over the door
of almost every private house and covered
the front of almost every business block.
When all were thus mindful of the pro
prieties of the occasion it would be invidi
ous in us to particularize in our praise. The
universality of the moarning was equally
remarkable with its elegance and appropri
ateness. Nut only the dwellings 01 tne
rich and the big business blocks thus wore
the emblems of woe, but the houses of the
poor, all bore some modest badge of mourn
ing. The whole people mourned when
Abraham Lincoln died.
IN THE EARLY MORNING.
Cleveland never woke earlier than on
vesterdjy morning. By day-break the
streets were alive with people and present
ed a stirring aspect quite unwonted at the
hour. On the business thoroughfares men
were engaged in completing the drapery of
mourning upon the fronts of houses and
blocks. Comp-inioi) if the 2'JihO. N. G., with
bayonets glistening in the level sunbeams,
were marching to the place of rendezvous
on .Euclid street, vivio associations ana
organizations, with banners and regalias,
r'.so turned their faces in the ssme direc
tion. Here and there migbt be seen a
unely mounted and red-scarfed Marshal of
the Cay, riding leisurely to his duties.
Bands, playing slow and solemn airs, pass
ed along the streets. The sidewalks were
crowded with the throng of early risers,
hurrying to the various points along tbe
shore cf the L'ka, commanding a view
of the railroad, and to
THE UNION DEPOT.
At this pjiat, ts in fact at every eligible
location from which could be obtained
view of tbe expected funeral train, li'g-f
crowds had gathered. Hence, at half after
five a. m ., the committee appointed by the
Mayor to meet the train at Euclid had takou
lis departure in aspecial train. The com
u.itu.0 an-t the funerul train at the point
rieigaated aud returned with it.
VISITORS TO THE CITY.
At en es.r'y hour every road leading to the
city wss thronged with vehicles. The
whole surrouadinj country; emptied itaell
into Cleveland. Special trains were run on
all the railroads centering in this city, and
thousands to-jk this opportunity of behold-
ng the pageant. Tue Detroit boat had
'.so broughtdown alarge delegation. Some
30t porsous came up from Meadville, and
every h.iU-1 in the city was full to

unable to obtain bods. By nine

ARRIVAL OF THE TRAIN.
gine and car made their appearance, an
nouncing the near approach of tbe train
itself, and punctually at the arrival of the
hoar the funeral train appeared. It was
drawn by tho engine "L. Case," heavily
draped in white and black, and consisted
one baggage car; three sleeping cars;
three new and handsome cars, furnished
by the line between Buffalo and Columbus .
the funeral car, which belongs to the
United States, and is most magnificently
fitted op and draped with black, with sil
ver fringe ; and an elegant car, belonging
the management of the Philadelphia,
Baltimore and Washington line, and occu
pied by the Guard of Honor. The whole
train, being draped havily and tastefully
with white and black trimmings, present
ed a striking and suggestive appearance.
The train was stopped, the engine "L,
Case " detached, and the C. & P. engine
"Dispstch," which was shrouded with
black on the sides, and almost covered with
trimmings of black and white attached.
Almost without a moment's pause, and
certainly with no formality or ceremonial,
this transfer was effected, and soon the train
moved away, on the Pittsburgh track, for
AT EUCLID STREET STATION.
station at 7.20 A. M. At it approached the
station a national salute of thirty-six guna
was fired. The train, which consist! of
nina-eoacb.es, was stopped at a point leav
ing the funeral car nearly across the public
road. Tbe depot was hang with black cloth
and tha national colors draped, and a crap
ed flag was suspended from a cord stretch
ed across the road.
The Military Guard of Honor, consisting
of members of the Veteran Reserve Corps
who accompany the remains, was imme
diately drawn np areand th hearse car,
sight of there holding themaelvee in readi
ness to carry the coffin to the hearse sta
tioned few yardt distant, while the rest
flanksd the military pall-bearers on either
side, with swords drawn to the
remains. On either side of the mili
tary guard stood the special Guard of Hon
or, composed of Generals in the United
States service, on one part, and of G over
aor Brougn and staff, with the civie pall
bearers and leading members of various
Committees, on the other. .'
The military Guard of Honor took the
coffin upon their shoulders and moved slow
ly and solemnly to the hearse, attended by
their associates with drawn swords, as tha
. 'amp Chase Band, stationed in front of the
depot, pi jed a dirge. The hearse present
ed a splendid appearance. Its floor wss
covered with beautiful white flowers which
relieved theiombrenessof plames and drap
ed flags with which it was surmounted.
The drapery was black velvet looped up
with rosettes, in the center of each a silver
star. The hearse was drawn by six pare
white horses, all appropriately decorated,
and each attended by a colored groom,
wearing badges of mourning.
The following gentlemen acted as Pa' I
Bearers: Ex-Gov. Tod, Hon. R. P. Spal
ding, Hon. J. C. Diven, Gen. R. P. Back

Hon. A. Everett, Amass Stone, Jr., Esq.,
Stillman Witt, Esq., L. A. Piece, Esq.
The coffin hav ug been placed in the
hears-, a beautiful cross wrought of whit
flowers was placed apon the head and foot
of the same. The military Guard of Honor
formed around the hearse, which, preceded
by the Camp Chase Band, moved off slowly
on Willson Avenue, followed by the Pall
Bearers on either flank, and by theaGuard
of Honor, mounted. Tha 29th O. N. G., waa
drawn up in line, with arms reversed, and
saluted tbe hearse and Guard as they
pasted. The cortege was met at Prospect
street by the Civie Guard of Honor, when it
turned back to Eeclid street, and consti
tuted the head of the procession which waa
formed according to the programme by
Colonel Barnett, Chief Marshal, and hia
As the magnificent cortege moved slowly
and solemnly down Euclid street, led by
tha band playing a funeral march, the vast
crowds of people of both sexes and of all
ages and conditions, who had packed th
vast area about. the depot, eager and rev
erent spectators of the grand pageant, be
gan a general movement down the broad,
beautiful avenue. We have never seen a
better mannered crowd, or a procession
conducted throughout with such consum
mate precision and order. This was in part
owing to the capital police arrangement,
bat still more largely due to the sympa
thetic spirit of the spectators, which,
would not allow them to run into any bois
terous or selfish manifestations.
