Now that the assassin has deprived the
nation of its Chief Magistrate, the follow
ing account of an attempt upon the life of
General Jackson, dining his second term,
will be found interesting. We extract it
from the first volume of Colonel Denton's
44 Thirty Years' View."
On Friday, th-3()(h of January, 183.,
the President, with some meihUrs of his
Cabinet, attended the funeral ceremonies
Warren 11. Davis, Esq , in the hall of the
House of Representatives, of which body
Mr. Davis had been a member from the
State of Sou. h Caioliua. The procession
had moved out with the ldv, and its
front had reached the foot of the broad
steps of the eastern rtico, when the
President, with Mr. Woodbury, Secretary
of I he Treasury, and Mr. Mahlou Dick
crson. Secretary ot the Navy, were issuing
from 1 he door of the great rotunda, which
opens uon the portico. At that ins. ant
a person' stopped ft 0111 the crowd into th.
little open space in front of the President,
leveled a pistol at him at the hst.tr.ee of
about eight kct, and attempted to fire. It
was a percussion lock, and the cap explo
ded, without firing the powder in the bar
rel. The explosion of the r ap was so
hind that many thought the pistol was
fired. 1 bean! it at the foot of the steps,
far from the place, and a grat crowd lc
i we n. Instantly the jm rson dropped the
pi-tol which had missed fire, took another
which he held ready cocked in the left
hand concealed by a cloak, leveled it, and
pulled the trigger. It was also a cni
sion lock, and the cap exploded without
liring the powder in the barrel. The
President instantly rushed upon hiui with
his uplifted cane : the man shrank bck,
Mr. Woodbury aimed a blow- at him;
Lieutenant G.iiuoy of the Navy ku- cked,
him down; he was seemed bvthebv

of employment, melancholy an i irascible
The pistols were examined and found
to be well loaded, and th d afterward
without fail, carrying tht ir bullets iru -,
and driving them throu-h inch boards at
tf.vly feet distance, nor could any reason
le found for the two failures at the door
of the rotunda. On his examination th
prisoner seemed to be. at bis ease, as if
unco!ici"t!s of having done anything
wrong refusing to cross-examine the wit
nesses w ho testified against liitn, or to cive
any explanation of his conduct. The
idea of an unsound mind strongly im
pressed itself upon public opinion, the
Marshal of the District invited two of tlfc
most respectable physicians of the city
(Dr. Thomas Sewell) to visit him and ex
amine into his mental condition. They
did so, and the following is the report
which they made upon the case:
We omit the report of the physicians,
which is to the effect that Iiwrencc was
of a morbid, melancholy ilisjKtsitioa, who
had liceii induced to believe that the finan
cial condition of the country was owing
to General Jackson's veto of the bank and
his war on currency ; that if he was once
out of the way, no matter who might b
his successor, business would improve, and
money become plenty.
It is clearly to be seen, from this medi
cal examination of the man, thnt tliis at
tempted assassination of the President was
one of those cases of w hich history pre
sents many instances a diseased mind
acted upon by general outcry against a
public man. Lawrence was in the par
ticular condition to If. acted upon by what
he heard against General Jackson a
wotkinan out of employ mutt, needy, idle,
mentally morbid, and with reason enou:h
to argue regularly from false premises

believed it of making mouev scarce I and
he Itolieved it of producing distress! and
lulieved it of b.inj tyrant! and be

of things required him to do take the
life of the man whom he considered the
whole cause of his own and the general
calamity and the sr-!e obstacle to his own
attd the general happiness. I lalucination
of mind was evident: and the wretched
victim of a dteadful delusion was after
ward treated as insane, and never brought
to trial. Rut the circumstances made n
deep impression upon the public feeling,
