OPENSATURDAY, DEC. 7.
RtTWIlKLKANK, Ih*c. B.- Prom tin- be^^ginning ^^f iii^ fatal illness, Mr. Dans luitl^insisted that his raw was nearly fir unite^hopeless, though the dread of puin never^appcan-d to take the slightest hold il|s^ll^his spirits. In vain did the doctors strive^to impress ii|m^ii him that his health was^imjimving. He steadily insisted that there^was no improvement, hut with ('hristut.il^resignation, lie was content to neeeju^whatever providence had in store for hiin.^At ^^ o'eloek last evening Mr. Davis was^aeiseil with a congestive chill. which^seemed to absolutely ertlsh the vitality^out of his already enfeebled Issly. So^weak was Mr. Davis that the violence of^the assault soon subsided for lack of vital^^ity ii|m.ii which to prey. From that mo-^MMH to the moment of hiadeutli the his^^tory of his case was that ofjrravlu.il siuk-^ing.
At7 o'clock Mrs Davis administered^some medicine, lint the cx-prcsident de^^clined to receive tlie whole thsse. She^urjfeil u|k^ii linn the neeesaity of tnkinjr^the ri'iiiaiuder. hut puttiuji it aside with a^jfeutle tfeKtuns he whisperi-d. ^Pray ex-^eiiKe me.^ These were his last words.
Graduallyhe jrrt-w weaker, lull iievi-r^for iiu iuKtnnt si.^.|in^l to lose conscious^^ness, lyiiiK peacefully upon hi^ l^ ^l anil^without a trace of pain in MB l^m^k. he n-^muincil for hoiii-m Hileiitly claspiujr and^tenderly cureHsiiifX his wife's hand. He^awaited the end from the moment of the^dread assault of the eonjteative elnll.
XtstsMirath^'ri'd tilsiut the In-dside who^had hM watching and notiiijr with MM*^fill interest every ehalijre or symiitom for^the past month, knew well that the dread^messeiijrer was even at the door.
Ily11 ::^t^ oVI^M-k there were assembled^in tlie death chandler Mrs. Davis, Drs.
hcavicand liickliam, AssiM-iate Justice^and Mrs. KeiiniT. Miss Nannie Smith,^jrraiiduii ^-^' of the ilyiujf ex-prcsideiu, and^Mr. and Mrs. K. H. Fnrrah.
Fiiidiujrthat Mr. Davis was hrcathinjr^somewhat lu-avily us he lay Mp^ his^hack. th^' doctors assisted him to turn upon^his riejlit side with his cheek restiiij* MfMjJj^his rij;ht hand. He lay there for some l.r^^minutes lireathiuif softly hut faintly. Nfore^and more fi-i-hle In-eanie his respirations^until they passed into silence, and then^the watele-rs knew that the silver cord^had cut and the father of the confedcracy^was tlead.
Despitethe fact that the end had come^slowly and iM-uccfully and after they had^been face to face wtth dread reality, the^blow fell with crushing force upon the af^^flicted widow. As long as there had Immui^work for either head or hands she hail^borne up brnvely, and not until the uses^of her tender ministrations were lost did^she seem to realize the terrible force of^the blow that had fallen upon Iter. Know^^ing of her prcdisivmition to heart uttlic-^tiou the doctors were at once jjravely^alarmed for her. They promptly admin^^istered u composing draught and nt a late^hour this morning she was resting tpiielly.
Itis Is lieved the foundation of Mr.^Davis' Inst illness was malaria eomplica-^catcd with acute bronchitis. Careful^nursing and -killed medical sttetition had^mastered the latter hut it is supposed the^congestive chill, which was the immedi^^ate cause of death, was attributable to the^return of the malaria. After death the^face of the deceased, though Usiking^slightly emaciated, showed no trace of^suffering, more nearly resembling that of^a peaceful sleeper than of the dead.
Whenthe family partially recovered^from the slns-k of Davis' death, Mr. K.-tr-^rar sent dispatches to Miss Winnie Davis,^who is in Paris with Mr. Pulitzer, to I^Davis' son-in-law in Colorado City, and^also uotilh-d Governor Lowrey of Mississ^^ippi. Mrs. Hayes, Davis' daughter, due^here yesterday, was detained last^night at Fort Worth, ami is not cxis-ctcd^in the city until Saturday. Judge Feiiner^and Furrur have the attain* of the dead^man in hand, lint the latter said last night^they would not take any steps looking to^n funeral until they hud consultation with^Mrs. Davis, who is at present |M much^grieved to lie approached oil the subject.^Farrar stati-d that he did not know but^Mrs. Davis received some final wish from^her husband regarding the place of burial.^Mrs. Davis had not intimated where she^desired the interment made.
Bishopt.allele r will Im* r^^^|iicstoil to^conduct the religious ceremonies at the^funeral and to summon whatever assist^^ance from the clergy he may desire. It^was also decided to invite the entire clergy^of the city, including ull denominations.^The military of Mobile and other neigh-^tMiriilg towns have telegraphed that they^will come here in time to swell the grand^demonstration of res|km-t and at tlie pres^^ent writing it promises to Is* tin* grandest^and most impressive affair that lias oc^^curred in the history of the South.
Allthe governors of the southern states^will also be notified officially of tlie death^of the chieftain of the confederacy, ticn-^eral Gordon, commander-in-chief of the^United Confederate Veteran association,^lias Is-cii officially notillcd of the death^of Mr. Davis ami lias issued instructions^to various camps an organizations.

He needs^i no eulogy from me. His life is history ami^] his memory is enshrined in the heart of^every man and woman ami child in this^! hr.sid south. We ull loved him and we all^^ owe him honor and reverence.
Tin*Tmirn /Vmoecuf editorially say-:^! ^Jefferson Davis is dead. He was trie I^I in many high office* and found faithful
iuull: he was tested in many critical
juncturesand proved true to his country^and his |s*onlc. His life was one long^sacrifice of interest to duty. The fame ^ f^the illustrious dead shall in years to colli^^grow brighter as the emliera of passion^die away
mournfor one who represented more^than any other the cause for which a mil^^lion of her moat chivalrvnis sons drew^their swords and joined battle with tlie^most formidable of adversaries.

Justicel.amar saiil: ^The whole people^of Mississippi are iu grief. My imtsoiiuI^relations with him were not only kind but^affectionate. As a public man luy esti^^mate of him was of the most exulted^character. He was a man of intellect,^honor ami statesmanship.
SenatorGeorge said: ^Whatever may^Is- said of Mr. Davis by some of bis eon*^temiMiries who differ with him, I am sure^the judgement of posterity will Is- that he^was a pure, utile and patriotic citizen.
SenatorWalthall said : ^Mr. Davia ill^Ills last flays had a stronger hold on the^affections of his own |M-ople than lie had^in tlie time of his greatest power. There^will tie universal mourning in tin- south.
