P? EPAKATION FOR THE FUNERAL.
SYMPATHY FROM ABROAD.
Organization af the Senate
The solemn tones sf the bells which
on Monday night, announced to ?very
cily in the Union the death of Presi?
dent Garfield, struck deeply to the hea-t
of the natic-B, and yesterday, when
rotft begun to consider the event calm?
ly and Quietly, the full measure of the
loss sustained dawned upon them.?
Every village, town and city draped
itself in 'iiuuiiihii-; me stars ana stripe*
which only lately had bsen unfurled to
mark a national holiday, dropped their
folds in the sighing breeze and every
"jutting frieze and coigns of vantage,"
in spite oi the bright sunshine, looked
dark and sombre in their trappings of
grief. Business was generally inter?
rupted; a hush pervaded the usually
ntiey marts of trade and commerce,and
all, although they kaew that the end
bad come and the bng weeks of anxiety
aud suspense were over, seemed eager
to catch any news from the village by
the sea. where, after life's fitful fever,
the President was sleeping well. Across
the electric wire? that bind two con?
tinent? together there flushed words of
sympathy and condolence from nion
archs and princes, and the strife and
turmoil of daily lifo Beamed bushed in
the presence of a commun and univer?
At an eirly hour yesterday morning
Vice-President Arthur took tiie oath of
office in New York, and during the day
went to Long Branch, where all ar?
rangements were finally perfected for
the luneral of the President. The bod-,
will be taken to Washington today, and
lie in state in therotundu of the Capitol
on Thursday ana Friday, when it will
be transported to Clevelaad, arriving
there on Saturday. No inquest will be
held at Long Branch, ox account ?f the
delay wbicb would necessarily occur
bringing those f.om Waahingtoa wl
were witnesses to the shooting. T
result of th? autopsy of the body of tl
President, which was held jester-Jay I
the attending physicians, disclosed tl
fact that the ball bad lodged aix inch'
and a halt to the left of the spine, an
behind the peritoneum, where itbecau

death was secondary bamorrha-_;e. Tl
special dispatches given below furnia
a full history of the events of yesterda
not only at Long Branch, but also i
Washington and New York.
Lono Branch, X. J.\ Sept. 20.
The single telegraphic wire at th
Elberon has been employed all da
conveying official messages und brin?
ing replies. The trains to day brough
new representatives from all sections o
the country, until, with these airead;
here.lhey constituted an army by them
selves. Early in th? morning the de
tails of the last few minutes ef the life
of the dead President were obtaiued,
and when it became knewn that Mrs,
Gartield had sat by the bedside of bei
dead husband from half-past eleven
o'clock until near two o'clock, saying
nothing, but giving vent now and then
to hear pent-up sorrow by suppressed
sobs, the hearts oi all ware touched in
th? deepest manner and eyea filled
with teara. There was an early re?
port that Mrs. Garfield had broken
aoa-pletely down, but this was soon
alter corrected by Dr. Boyntoe. The
Doctor said that while Mrs. Gartield
was suffering the deepest of affl.ctior
yet she was exhibiting wonderful here
ism, fortitude and sell-control. Oal
once during the day did abe Completel

Then her pent-up grief could no longi

sorrow which has come upon her for tl <
roaton that she never was in favor o

to the Soldiers' Home, aa she was cer
tain that in hie infeebkd condition he
could never reeojer from the fatigue of

THE OFFICIAL REPORT OF THE 81
Elbebon, R. J., Se;?. 20.?The ?
lowing official buleiin win prepared
11 o'clock tonif/ht by the surgeons w
have been in attendance upen Ihe It
President: '.By previous arranj-eme
a post-mortem examination of t
body of President Garlleld was ma

tou. The opcrai'on was perlormeti t
Dr. Lamb. It was found that the bal
after fracturing the right eleventh ri
had passed through the spinal colum
in Iront of the spinal canal, fracturin
the body of ihe first lumbar verterbras
driving a uumbcr of small frp_?ments <
bone into the adjacent soft parts, an
lodgiii-i below the pancreas, about t w
iuchc* and a half to the left of the spin
and behind ihe peritoneum, where i
became cotnpletelv encysled. Th
immediate cause of death was secondar;
he_aorrhage from one of ihe mesentcr'u
arteries adjoining the track ot the bloo
rupturing the peritoneum and nearly ;
pint escaping iuto the abdominal cavity
This hemorrhage is believed to havi
been the cause of the severe pain in tin
lower part of the cheat complained o
just before death. An abscess cavity,
six inches by four in dimensions, was
found in ilia viciuity of th _ gali bladder,
between the lower and the transverso
colon, which were stron_.lv adherent.?
It did not involve the suostance ef the
liver, and no communication was fouud
between it and the wound. A long
suppurating channel exteude.l from the
external wound, between th. lower
muscles and the right kidney, almost to
the riiiht groin. This channel, now
known to be due to the burrowing of
pus from the wound, was ?upposed, dur?
ing life, to have bee? the track of the
ball. O? au exaruiaatian of the or,au
of the chest avidenct of sever? broi
c'iiiis ware found ou bjth sides, wil
bronchial pneumonia of the lover por
lions of the ri^lit lung, and, though U
a much less extent ou the left; the lung
coutain no abscesses aud the heart n
clots. The liver was enlarged an
fatty, but free from abscesses. Nt
were any fouud in any other organ, ex?
cept tli? left kulney, which contain?
near its surface a small abscess abou
one-lhird of an inch in diameter. Ii
reviewing the history of the case, in
connection with the autopsy, it it qaiti
?vident that the diflwrent suppurating
surfaces, aud especially the fractured
spongy tissue of the vertebrae, furnish a
sufficient explanation of the teptie coa
ditioti which existed.
THE BALL KOT WIIEBE IT MAS
Lono Branch, N. J , Sept. 20.?
Althoagh the autopsy was begun a few
minute i nfier four o'clock it was not
until a quarter past eleven o'clock to
night that tl.o result wat made known
by means of a bulletin ligned bj nil the
attending surgeons. Dr. Lamb, of the
Army Medical Museum, who did the
cuttiug and Dr. Smith, of Elbirou, wl.o
was called in ord-jr to comply with the
requirements of tho laws of this State.
The bulletin was read to the corres?
pondents and ts those who have been
watching the case? from the Irst ub.
reportinz each das't hiitoiy. It was
the cauie of much surprise and a grei
deal of comment. The treatment o
the case, viewed in lbs light of the du
closures made by the autopsy, will,
is fcelieycd. be securely arraigced b]
ihti medical profession. The autops
shows conclusively that the bill wa
not where the surgeons said it was, auc
that what has been regarded and pub
lished day by day for A-eek. as the tracl
of th? wound was something else. Tht
surgeons have been treating au opeuiu?

inches rosde byconlhed pus buirowin.

when the latter went in an entirely dif?
ferent direction. The surgeons admit
m the bulletin tti.t an abscess six by
tour inches had formed in the vicinity ot
the gall bladder, between the liver and
the transverse colon. The bulletin
sayt also (hat the ball had passed
through und fractured the spinal column
a fact heretofore strenuously deuied by
the sur-eous. The bulletin fails ta go
very much into details, and after it was
read Di. Bliss said that there was a
small pus CrtVity ou oue af the kidneys
not mentioned tu te bulletin. The
surgeons say that tno immediate cause
of death was secondary hemorrhage
I from oue of the aileries adioiniuz the
track of the ball, the blood iufliniiu.
the peritoneum and nearly a pint escap
iug in Ihe abdominal cavity. A me-di
cal man who heaid the report read Slid
that the treatment of the Preiideut by
be surgeons was condemned by then
own report and thai the di tguo-is of the
case mude at the tim? of the shooting
was uow proved to bo wholly wrong
and at fault. Dr?. Hamilton and Bliss
expected to find th? ball where they
bave insisted for a month itwa??ia
the front part ot the right groin?but
the autopsy disclosed ita presence in
another part of the body.
Attorney-Genera! MacVeagh said (o
ni_*lit that nothing de In it? had been
determined upon as to who would ac?

Several republican members of Con

onsequent upon the death ?f 'he Pres?
ident anal the elevation of Gen. Arthur
to the preeidtney. He thought com
mtnt ?it present was peculiarly uniii
ting, but after giving ?xpression lo bit
Urrow, he went on to say that, aftei
all, the country was going under an
administration that it had iu ft great
measure prepared itself for ; there
would be bo criait nor auy evil rc.ulting
torn it. lUfer'mg to the question as to
th? immediate resignation of the cabi?
net, he said he, of course took It for
granted that the members would at
once resign. Such a course would be
proper and according to custom. He
said the pcopl? would not take in good
part any change in the administration
that would stop in any measure the
good wotk, for instance, like that
againtt the instigator! of the star routa
frauds, and that as Authur was a dtx
trous political manager he would, of
course, te? this, and put off for th?
pr?tent, at least, any change in the
cabinet. The Senate was d?mocratie
when it adjourned, said the Senator
"and it will be d?mocratie when i
aiiemblai, and consequeutly Arthur's
administration will be co-antagonized a
intensely as was that of Hayes's." "Dc
yon at oreaent remember how it was
that thire is no President pro. tern, ol
the Senate ?" was asked, to which the
Senator said ?lowly, "I have understood
that Vice-President Arthur refused to
rac-tte the chuir because of my name
having been mentioned to him as the
choice of the democratic side. The
democrats," said the Senator, "will
askisl the administration in all good
goverment, but if he takes steps to era
ate cab.net o-_.ee.r- who will be likelr
to cease the prosecution of the star
route cate?, then not only the people
?u '.h. democratic party in Con rose will

this is net the proper time," said h?,
"to talk about these ???ttiura. Some
