Grant did not intend, in the terms which
he hss made, to bestow pardon lor offenses
against the civil law open a single rebel.
Even had he so intended, ha would have
no rwiwor to carrv out his deeien. His
functions are purely military. He can
grant to no man immunity from prosecu
tion for crime, whether past, present or
prospective. If there is a man in Lee's or
Johnston's army who has committed mur-
- fler. robberv. or arson, he is Btill liable to
trial, conviction and punishment according
to law. How n-uch more, then, are the
gre&t traitors who hold high command in
these armies liable to the law which they

immunity from disturbance by United
States authority, so long as their parole tub

ft state of war. It is given in order that
the person paroled may not take the field
again in that war until it is relinquished.
"When the war ends,the parole, hy its very
nature, becomes null and void. Korean a

conventson supposes, via; a slate of war.
The armies ot Lee and Johnston are thus
paroled prisoners, free from molestation by
civil authority so long as they continue pa

clared exchanged, or by the cessation of
the war they may lose their character as
prisoners. Then they are liable to civil
laws, if not before.
How far it will be deemed wise to en
force the civil law against those who have
thus offanded against it, cannot at present
be determined. Much will depend upon
questions not yet decid'd the remaining
military strength of the rebellion the

the general disposition and temper of the

We condense from the New York papers,
and especially from the New York World,
an account of the chase and killing of the
assassin J. Wilkes Booth :
Whon the murder occurred, Colonel
Baker was absent from Washington. He
returned on the third morning, and was at
oj.ee brought by Secretary Smriton to j Jin
the hue and cry against the escaped Booth.
The sagacious detective found that nearly
tan thousand cavalry, and one-fourth as
many policemen had been meantime scour
ing, without plan or compass, the whole
territory of Southern Maryland. They
were treading on each other's heels, and
mixing up the thing so confoundedly that
the best place fur the culprits to have gone
would have been in the very midst ef their
pursuers. linker at once possessed himself
of the Utile the War Dt partment had lean
ed, and started immediately to take the
usual detective measurer, till then n6g'ect
ed, of ofiering a reward and gettic gout
photographs of the suspected ones. He then
dispatched a few chosen detectives to cer
tain vital points, and aw&itod the results.
The first clue obtained was from a negro
who testified to having seen Booth and an
other man cross the Potomac in a fishing
boat. Colonel Baker immediately made a
requisition on General Hancock for twenty
five men. He judgod from the typography
of the country that the line of the mur
derers Sight would probably be through or
near Port Royal.
FOLLOWING UP THE SCENT.
Whoa, therefore, twenty-five men, under
one Lieutenant Doughe-ty, arrived at his
office door, Bkr placed the whole under
(vronmand of his former lieufenant-colonel,
E. J. Conger, and his cousin L. B. Baker
the first cf Ohio, the last cf New York
and bade them go with all dispatch to
Belle Plain, on the Lower Potomac, there
to disembark and sci.ur the country faith
fully around Port Boyal, but not to return
unless they captured their men.
Conger is short, decided, indomitable,
courageous fellow, provincial in his man
ners, but fully understands his business,
and collected as a housewife on Sunday.
Young Baker is a large and fine looking
a soldier, but no policemen ai.d he de
ferred to Conger, very pw perly, during
most of the events succeeding.
On Mondvy at 2 P. M ,' the detectives
and cavalry men landed at Belle Plain.
Belle Piain is seventy miles from
Washington city and fifteen miles due
north from the place where the murderer
was captured. They immediately rode out
into the darkness. Cone or and Baker kept
ahead, riding up to farmhouses and ques
tionirg the inmates, pretending to be in
search oi a Marjltnd gentlemen belonging
to the party. But nobody bad seen the
parties described, and, after a futile ride on
the Fredericksburg road, they turned
shortly to the east, an J kept up their
baffled inquiii-s ali the way to Port Con
way on the Bappahannock.
AT PORT ROYAL.
Oa Tuesday morning they presented
themselves at the Port Koyal ferry, and
inquired of the ferry-man, while he was
taking them over seven at a time, il he had
seen any two such men. Continuing their
inquiries at Port Roja!, tbey lound one

a negro named Lucas, as having driven
two n)9 a short distance toward Bowling
Green fa a wagon. It wan found thaUhaim
men answered to the description, Bxrth
having a crutch as previously ascertained.
Afiar, fruitless search on Tuesday they
rode into Bowling Green at elevon o'clock
Tuesday night,where tbey found a captain,
formorly of Moseby's command, on whoso
horse Booth had ridden from Port Royal.
He told the pursuers that Booth and Har
rold were then at the house cf one Gar
rett, three miles bck toward Port Royal.
Back, thereupon, rode the party to Gar
rett's house :
In the pale nr fanlight, three hundred
yards from the main road, to the left, a
plain old farmhouse looked grayly through
its environing locusts. It was worn and
white-washed, and two-storied, and its half
human windows glowered down upon the
silestcavalrymen likewatchingowls which
stood as sentries over some terrible secret
asleep within. The front of this house
looked up the road toward the Kapphhnn
nock, but did not face it, and on that side a
long-Virginia porch protruded, where, in
the summer, among the honeysuckles, the
humming bird flew like a visible odor.
Nearest the main road, against tbe pallid
gable, a single-storied kitchen stood, and
there were three other doors, one opening
upod the porch, one in tbe kitchen gable,
and one in the rear of the farm house.
Dimly seen behind, an old born, high
and weather-beaten, faced the roadside
gate, for tbe house itself lay to the left of
its own lane; and nestling beneath the
birn, a few long corn-cribs lay with a cat
tle shed at hand. There was not a swell
of the ltndscape anywhere in sight. A
plain dead level contained all the tene
ments and structures. A worm fence
stretched along the road, broken by two
battered gate-posts, and, between the road
and the house, tbe lane was crossed by a
second fence and gate. The farm-house
lane, passing the house front, kept straight
on to the barn, though a second earrings
track ran up to the porch.
THE HOUSE SURROUNDED.
In the dead stillness, Baker dismounted
and forced the outer gale; Conger kept
clo-e behind him, and the horsemen follow
ed cautiously. Tbey made no noise in the
soft clay, nor broke the hl'-foreboding si
lence anywhere, till the second gate swung
open gratingly, yet even then nor hoarse
nor shrill respi-nse cjrae back, save distant
croaking, as of fiogs or owl , or the whizz
of some passing night hiwk So they sur
rounded the pleasant old nomestead, each
horseman, carbine in pise, adjusted under
tbe grove of locusts, so as to inclose tbe
dwelling with a circle ot fire. After a
pause, Baker rode to the kitchen door on
the side, and dismounting, rapped and hal
loed lustily. An old man, in drawers and
night-shirt, hastily undrew the bolts, and
stood on the threshold, peering sbiveriogly
Baker seized him by the throat at once.
and held a pistol to his ear. "Who who
is it that calls me I cried the old man.
"Where are the men who stay with you?'
challenged Baker. "If you prevaricate
you are a dead man 1" Tbe old man, who
proved to be the head of the family, was
so overawed and paralyzed that he stam
mered, and shook, and said not a word.
"Go light a candle, cried Bakar, sternly,
"and be quick about it." The trembling
old man obeyed, and in a moment the im
perfect rays nared upon Lis whitening
hairs and bluishly p&l.ii f ice. Then the
question was repeated, backed up by the'
glimmerirg pistol, "where are those men?'
The old man held to the wall, and his
knees smote each other. "They are gone,"
he said. "We hav'nt got tbem ia the
house ; I assure you that they are gone."
Here there were sounds and whisperings
in the main building adjoining, and the
lieutenant strode towards the door. A lu
dicrous instant intervened. The old man's
modesty outran his terror. " Don't go iu
there," he said, feebly, "there are women
undressed in there." "Damn the women,"
cried Baker; "what if tWy are undressed ?
We shall go in there U they haven't a
rag. . Ijeaving tne old man in mute as
tonishment, Baker bolted through the door
and stood in an Msemblage of bare arms
and night robes.- His loaded pistol dis
armed modesty of its delicacy and substi

young man's head, followed on to the barn,
it lay a hundred yards from the house, the
front ba.n door fating the west gable, and
was an old and spacious structure, with
floors only a trifle above the ground level.
SURROUNDING THE BARN.
The troops, were
at regular intervals around it, and ten yards
diatant at every point, four special guards
placed to command tbe door, and all with
weapons In supple preparation, while Baker
and Conger went direct to tbe door. It
had a padlock upon it, and the key of this
Bikur secured at once. In the interval of
silence that ensued, the rustling of planks
and straw was heard inside, as of persons
riiing from sleep.
At the same moment Baker hailed:
To the persons in this barn. I have a
proposal to make ; we are about to send
in to you the son of the man in whose cus
tody you are found. Either surrender to
him your arms and then give yourselves
up, or we'll set fire to the place. We mean
to take you both, or to have a bonfire and
a sho jting match.
No answer came to this of any kind.
Tbe lad, John M. Garrett, who was in
deadly fear, was here pushed through the
door by a sudden opening of it, and imme
diately Lieutenant Baker locked tbe do t
on tlie outside. The boy was heard to
state bis appeal in undertone. Bjoth replied:
" Damn you. Get out of here. You have

Harrold gave up his arms, and Booth, after
proposing to fl. ht the party at fifty yards
distance, declare! that he would die rather
than surrender, has already been transmit
ted by telegraph. The barn was then fired,
in order to drive Booth out from it.
Behind tbe blaze wi! h bis eyes to a crack,
Conger saw Wilkes Booth standing up
right upon a crutch. He likens him at
this instmt to his brother Edwin, whom he
says he so much resembled that he half be
lieved for the moment, the whole pursuit
to have ben a mistake. At tbe gleam of
the fire Wi kes dropped his crutch and
carbine, dnd on both bards crept up to tbe

turned gUring at the fire, as ii to leap upon
it and ex ir gui h it, but it had made such
headway lht this was a futile impulse and
ha dUniitsed it. As calmly ss upon the
battle-field a veteran sttnda amidst the hail
of ba'l and shell, and plunging iron, Booth
turned at a man's stride and pushed for
the d or, carbine in poise, and the last ra
solve of death, which we name despair,
set on his hij.li, bloodless forehead,

fell headlong to the floor, lying there in a
heap, a 'ittle life remaining. But no.
" He has shot himself," cried Baker, un
aware of the source of the report, and
ru-hing in, ho grasped his arms to guard
against any feint or strategy. A moment
convinced him that further struggle with
tbe proLe fieeh was useless. Booth did
not move, nor breathe, nor gasp. Conger
and two sergeants now entered, and taking
up the body, they bore it in haste from
the advancing fl.me, and lail it without
upon tLe gates, all fresh with heavenly
"Water," cried Conger, "bring water."
When this was dashed into his face, he
levived a moment and stirred his lips.
Baker put his ear close down, and heard
"Tell mother and die for my conn-try."
They lifted him again, the fire encroach
ing in hotness upon them, and placed him
on the porch before the dwelling
upon a roattrass and given brandy and
water. Meantime the Stp, which had
nearly destroyed the barn, was prevented
from spreading to tbe corn-cribs. When
he was able to articulate again, he muttered
to Lieutenant Baker the same words, with
an addenda. "Tell mother I died for my
country. I thought I did for the best"
Bsker repeated this, saying at tbe same
time, "Booth, do I repeat it correctly."
Booth nodded his head. Twice he was
heard to soy, "kill me, kill me " His lips
olten moved but could complete no appre
ciable sound. He made once a motion
which the quick eye of Conger understood
to mean that his throat pained him. Con

nian attempted to cough, but only caused
the blood at his perforated neck to flow
more lively. He bled very little, although
shot quite through, beneath and behind the
ears, his collar being severed on both

not by speech, but by gesture, and he was

his heart would cesse to throb, and his

A LAST REQUEST.
Just at his coming Booth had asked to
have his hands raited and shown him.
They wore so paralyzed that ha did not
kuow their location. When they were
displayed he muttered, with a sad lethargy.
"Useless, useless." These were the las,
words he ever uttered. As he began to
die the sun rose and threw beams into all
the tree-tops. It was of a man's height
when the struggle ot death twitched and
fingered in the fading bravo's face. His
jaw drew spasmodically and obliquely
downward; his eyeballs rolled toward his
feet, and began to swell; lividness, like a
horrible shadow, fastened upon him, and,
with a sort of gurgle and sudden check, he
stretched his leet and threw his head back
and gave up the ghost.

WHERE BOOTH LIES.
Yesterday the Secretary of War, without
instructions of any kind, committed to Col
OLel Lafayette C. Baker, of the secret ser
vice, the corpse of Booth. The secret ser
vice never fulfilled its.-volition more secre
tively. "What have you done with the
bady ?" said I to Baker. 'That is known,"
he answered, 'to only one man living be
sides myself. It is gone. I will net tell
you where The only man who knows is
sworn to silence. Never till the great
trumpeter comes shall the grave of Booth
be discovered." And this is true. L'ist
night, the 27th of April, a small row boat
received tbe circass of the murderer; two
men were in it ; they carried the body off
into the darkness, and out of that darkness
it wilt never return. In the darkness, like
his great crime, may it remain foinver, im
palpable, invisible, noncescript, condemn
ed to that worse than damnation, annihila
tion. Tbe river-bottom may ooza about it

[From the Washington Chronicle, April 28.]
FLIGHT OF THE ASSASSINS.
Booth and Earo'd left here together
after the a!Brsination,and made their way
into Maryland, remained in the swamps
until the 22d inst., and then crossed ever
into Virginia, via Swan's point, landing at
Bluff Point. They then took the Toad to
Port Koyal, and finally to Bowling Groen.
Harrold, however, is the only one of the
two who went so far as Bowling Green,
Booth stopping at Garrett's, where Har
rold rejoined him. Their evident intention
was to reach the mountains of East Ten
nessee, by the way of Orarge Court house.
It appears to be pretty well ascertained
that when Booth alighted on the stage at
the theatre, as he jumped from tha box, be
broke the lesser bone of his leg a little
above the ankle, and though the excite
ment of the moment drowned the pain,
when he began to ride, the broken bone
must have caused him excruciating pain.
The leg was clumsily re-set for him, and
with the help of crutches he made his way
through swamps and over roads, with death
for a jack-o'lantern lighting him to tha
barn at Garrett's. With a party of Con
federate soldiers whom they met, he psssed
himself off as a wounded officer, being
ashamed to own even to a rebel that he
was a murderer, fleeing from human law
and national wrath.
Booth stoned at Garrett's. Harold
went to Bowling Green ; returned to Gar
rett's, there had supper. Before they had
supper, a party of cavalrymen, whose ep
pearance there the reader will understand
from our account of the pursuit, passed the
house, and Booth and Harold, as the cav
alry disappeared, made for tbe woods, in
which they remained till tbey came in to
supper. Hi' y evidently had no idea that
the cavalry would return there in the
night,Jand believed that in the barn, if not
in the dwelling, they would be ss safe as
in the woods. To this conclusion tbey
were in ali probability driven by thestrong

his leg, and one seven-shooting rifle, one

BURNING OF THE SULTANA.
BURNING OF THE SULTANA. Full Account of the Terrible Disaster
—Fourteen Hundred Lives Lost—
The Cincinnati Gazette of the :o:h contains
a full account of the explosion of the
steamer Sultana, on the 27th, from which
The following is the Memphis Bulletin's
account of the disaster;
The steamer Sultana, Captain Mason, ar
rived from New Orleans but night, the 2Cth,
with about 2,200 people on board, 1,064 of
whom were exchanged Federal prisoners
from Vicksburg, the bilance being refugees
and regular passengers from various points
along the river, proceeding towards St
Louis She left the coal pile at one o'clock
this morning, and had made some eight or
ten miles, when an explosion of one of her
boilers occurred. Tbe boat, with iu mass of
living freight, took fire in the vicinity of
the engines, and in a short time she was
burned to the water, and now lies on a sand
bar near Foglemau's Lar ding, nothing visi
ble but her charred remains and jacksuff
The scene following the explosion was
terrible and heart rending in tne extreme.
Hundreds of people were blown into the
air, and descending into the water, some
dead, some with broken lirubs, some
scalded, were borne under by the resistlom
current of the great river, never lo ri-e
again. The survivors represent the screitLg
as agonizing beyond precedent. S.me
clung to frail pie es of the wrecs, as
downing men cling to straws, and sus
tained themselves for a few moments, but
finally becime exhausted and sank. On'y
tha beet swimmers, aided by fragments of
the wreck, were enabled to reiich the
woods, and there take refuge, uniil rescued
by boats sent from the tanning here to
There were abuut fif een women and
children aboard, and as near as cun be as
eertained, not more than two or three had
been found at the hour when this account
Some of the wretched people were borne
by the current as far down as tbe l6veo at
this city, and this was the fiMt intimation
the officers of the boats iu port received of
the terrible disaster. A yawl trss imme
diately sent cut from the MurbleCity, and
in a few minutes sever-tl pc.-ois were
picked out of thewalerand brought a'h.r.
Two were afterward found clinging to the
wheel, and they were also saved. Upon
being brought lo arealization of tbe calam
ity, tha officers of the boats ia port, under
notification of Captain Senior of tha lt vcr
Guard, steamed up, and iu a sh.'rt tune
were at the burning steamer, where hund
reds of peop'e were picked up and brou -Lt
to this landing, arriving about daylight.
They were met by a number of citizens and
ladies, who supplied theru with abundance
of dry clothing from the Qitrtermtister's
Department and from varii us stores.
Mr. John Fogleman, residing on the Ar
kansss side, on being aroused by tbe noite,
and seeing the burning sttauic-r, bsti'y
constructed a rude raft, and in tbU way,

The steamer Boetona No. 2, Captain
Watson, was coming down stream from
Cincinnati wben the explosion occurred,
and rendered very valuable assistance, sav
ing many lives. The Pocahontas, Silver

Ruse Hambledon and others also rendered
At the time of the explosion Captain
Mason had retired from watch, and was
in bed. He was afterwards seen throwing
shutters and doors to the assistance of peo
ple in the water, and here all traces of him
vanished. Clerks Gamble and Stralton
are also missing.
The body' of Wm. Cruddee, Co. I, lit
Virginia Cavalry, from Wheeling, Va, was
found. He had taken the precaution to
label himself. Among tbe soldiers on
board were thirty commissioned offimrs.
The troops were of various regiments, and
nearly all exchanged prisoners. They
belonged principally to western regiments.
At the hour of writing only five or six
hundred person had been saved. Not less
than one thousand lives were hurlet into
eternity by this most wonderful of all river
disasters. Hon. W. D. Snow, member Of
Congress from Arkansas; was on board and
escaped nn injured.

Dr. Liqqtiiill Dear Sir: Allow me
to express my giatefnl thanks for the skill
and kind attention rendered to my daugh
ter, whose ears have been badly affected
for many years, and for some months past
has been nearly deprived of hearing. The
loss of this important sense ia certainly
ead deprivation, painfully embarrassing,
and to a degree known only to those who
have experienced it. If, therefore, there
be a remedy for this great evil, the cause
of humanity obviously requires that it
should be universally disseminated. I feel
it my duty, therefore, and it affords me
much pleasure, to give my testimony to the
happy tffectsof your treatment and reme
dies. My daughter-has suffered from deaf
ness since early childhood. The left ear
has been badly diseased. The right ear,
also, for several years, was seriously affect
ed, and the disease apparently increasing,
threatening the entire loss of her hearing.
It was with extreme difficulty that she
could participate in tbeconversation of her
iriends, and for two jeara has been deprived
of this source of social erjoyment. Hap
pily my attention was directed to your ad
vertisement, and 1 was induced to place
her in ycur care. Your treatment, under
favor of a kind Providence, has been suc-
cnpslul. tier hearin?, so far as I can judge.
sppeare to be perfectly restored. "Whether
tins restoration is permanent is a question
time alone can detoru.ine, but present re
sults are certainly very gratiiymg.
I am, dear sir,
Truly and gratefully yours,
B.T. W eixh, D.D.
From Rev. tred. S. Jewell, Professor of the
btate normal acnool, Albany, a. 1 .
Er Liguthiix Dear Sir: Under date
of March 14 I sent you a careful statement
( t my case, my lormqr treatment, my fail
ure to obtain relief in that direction, my
resort to your tseatment and its beneficial
I have been, from the winter of the year
subject to violent periodical attacks
of catarrh, marked by febrile symptoms,
viuitmb iuuuiuuiuuu ui tuts iinmg mem
branes of the cavities of the head, accom
panied in the tirst stages by a watery dis-
cnarge irom inenose, substquently becom
ing acrid and yellow, and towards the close
of the attack purient and bloody. 'I hone
attacks produced a most distressing species
of headache, occurring periodically each
day fi r a period varying from one to three
weeks, sometimes so violent as to incapac
itate me lor business, and confine me to
my bjd. At times the attendant infltm.
mation would extend to the teeth, pro
ducing tootcacne,or to me throat, occasion
ing hoarsenets and partial loss of voice;
and twice within the la;t tew years it has
so alfected the right eye as to confine me
for wk3 to a darkened room.
X had tried medicines and applications
of various kinds; snul and other catarrhal
preparations of some half a dusen kinds;
applications to the head of camphor, ginger
and hot iomentation of different kinds;
and in connection with these the usual
emetics and cathartics employed to induce
counter action, liut not e of these had
produced any permanent improvement,
and in the few instances in which tempo
ral relief was afforded, it was at the ex
pense oi so much strength as to leave me
greatly exhausted. Under these circum
stances I was led, though with some re
luctance, from the supposed incurability of
the disease, to make a trial of your treat
ment. I found it soon beyond even my
hopes, reaching the disease as it had never
been readied botore, and alleviating its
symptoms to an extent which I had sup
posed impossible. At the lime wben I
give you my foimer certificate, while I did
nut feel assured of a sumplete cure, I had
obtained a material relief which amply
repaid me for my trial of you treatment,
and which satisfied me that tnat treatment
was as effective as it was simple and philo
sophical. A substantial escape from my
old attacks of catarrh, for the almost un
precedented period of nearly half a year,
and that in spite of severe attacks of ill
ness, which would have formerly rendered
such an occun-ence inevitable, was, to me,
proof of an important success.. - It ia now
six months since I sent you that statement'
and while it is unpleasant forme to appear
thus constantly, and in this guise, before
the public, it seems to me a matter of sim
ple justice to yourself and to those who
may be suffering as I was, to add that I
am not only as lully satisfied as to the util
ity and efficacy of your treatment of ca
tarrh as I was six months ago, but I am
now of the belief that if there is such a
thing as a cure tor Chbohio CixutBH, in
my cas a substantial cure has bean ef
fected, f bkdesicx S. Jewell,
