The event has produced a great deal
of excitement here among the foreign
ministers. The residence of the Aus

by nearly all of these officials, who

The Hon. Mr. Campbell, late United
States Minister to Mexico, arrived
here last night, and had an interview
with the Assistant Secretary of State.
It appears Mr. Campbell had pre-emp-tory
orders from Mr. Seward to re
main in New Orleans, and no orders
to go to Mexico in search of Presi
dent Juarez were received by him until
the first of the present month. The in
structions then giten him were to
proceed to Mexico' and take his sta
tion near President Juarez, but no
method of conveyance was indicated
by which he could get there. Mr.
Campbell, it seems, was ill with au
attack of fever, when these instruc
tions reached ;him. He at once "set
about procuring a vessel for the jour
ney, but was tunable to obtain any.
Finding there was no means of trans
portation, he telegraphed to the De
partment to have a vessel assigned for
his use, "Which request was refused.
As his orders were emphatic to join
the Mexican President, and he found
it impossible to do so, except by jour
neying overland with blanket and
haversack, he telegraphed to Mr. Sew
ard tendering his resignation, which
was accepted, and another Minister
-The Herald' North Platte corre
spondent says intelligence was brought
in this morning by a party of inde
pendent scouts from the Pawnee
Reservation, that a large band of hos
tile Sioux suddenly appeared and sur
rounded the , Pawnee Reservation,
twepty miles northwest of Columbus,
Nebraska. There is great excitement,
of course, among the Indians and
white settlers, and the worstjesults
are reasonably anticipated. The scouts
have traveled fast, for the purpose of
procuring immediate relief. A band
of Pawnee Indians, tribal relatives of
the warriors on the war-path, are en
camped tweuty miles west of Omaha.
These will be afforded every possible
means of rushing to the rescue. The
scouts will also aid them to the best
of their ability. '

was' named as a special officer ini the
War Department; did not - tell
John Ford that I told Stanton that I
knew where Surratt . was at the .time
of the assassination; on the forenoon
after the assassination met Hallahan
on the street; went home to breakfast:
said I believed Atzerott assassinated
the President: said I would disclose
all I knew: remember hearin&r the
remark at the table, that the death of
A. Lincoln was nothing more than
the death of a negro in the army.ti t.n
Anna Surratt said that she did , not
testify that before, on account of sym
pathy for the poor girl; would tell it
now, because it was drawn out of 'me,
and because I have been hunted down

of these people; did not tell Mr. CaW

Weiehman a3 a government detective,
April 16, 1865.
... Witness denied having ever spoken
to Carlin or Brophy about confession;
never said anything to them about it.
This ended Weichman's testimony.

Witness recognized it as a resem

. Dr.' Lewis Joseph Archibald
McMillan sworn; from April to Octo
ber, :65, was surgeon of the steamship
Peruvian; left Quebec for Liverpool,
September 16th; know prisoner; he
crossed the ocean with me on that
voyage to Londonderry; -first, saw
prisoner on the mail steamer Montre
al, running between Montreal and
Quebec, on the 15th of September,
1865; about a week or ten days previ
ous, a man named Lapierre, a priest,
who, at the time: lived inr,Montreal,
came to me and said somebody was
coming; and on the 15th of Septem
ber I was going to Quebec ' on the
steamer Montreal, and there met this
Mr. Lapierre again; he said he would
introduce me to his friend; he took
me to a state room, of which Lapier
re had the key; the "state room ,was
locked, dnd lie unlocked it;' in the
room I found, the prisoner at the bar;
Mr. Lapierre introduced the prisoner
under the name of McCarty; I never
suspected who ' the person was, and I
passed the evening and night with him.
The prisoner's hair was short then of
a dark brown color. I did not per
ceive it was dyed, but afterwards
found it out in conversation that even
ing. Gen. Lapierre went to Quebec
with us, and when we got to Quebec,
we had breakfast on the steamer at
seven or eight o'clock, and betweeu
nine and ten o'clock the passengers
were transferred to the steamer Pe
ruvian. Upon reaching the Peruvian,
Lapierre said to me in Surratt's pres
ence, he wished me to let Surratt oc
cupy my room till the steamer left,
and I did so, and he occupied my room
untii the steamer left. The steamer
left in half an hour, and Lapierre
went ashore. That day, I remember,
either after lunch or dinner, the pris
oner came to me, and pointing to
one of the passengers, asked' me if I
knew who he was; I said I did not
know Surratt said he thought
the man was an American detective,
and was after him ; I told hita I

messages: the soldiers referred to
were uniformed.
Mr. Bradley said he could uot
6ee where the evidence was tending.
Judee I isher said he could nor see
to what it tended; it was not Pierpont
they would connect with the conspir
acy: witness resumed, and said that
Surratt told him he received money
from Benjamin, the Confederate Sec
retary ot State; the amounts he
Darned were $70,000 aud $30,000; he
said he was in Richmond a few days
previous to its fall ; he said one day
that several of them went to crossing
the Potomac in a boat, when i they
were oursued bv a eunboat and order
ed to surrender or they would be fired
upon; a small boat was sent to them,,
and they fired into the small boat
as soon as it came alongside.-
V itness was asked to repeat this, by
defence, and retorted by . telling Mr.
Merrick that he (Merrick) equld un
derstand it if he would keep his ears
open; he (McMillan) was not to be
insulted, as all witnesses had already
been, and he thought the insulting of
witnesses wa3 the act of a coward and
saeak. Merrick asked if that was
proper language for a witness to use
in court. Court said it ,wa3 not, but
counsel must not worry and annoy
wituesses; witness said Mr. ;MerncJc
had said the other day that all the
witnesses ought to be in the penitentia
ry, and he wanted it understood he was
as good as Merrick.
Witness resumed and said that Sur
ratt stated that he had frequently
traveled to Richmond under the as
sumed names of Haversond and Sher
man. Upon reaching the coast of
Ireland, Surratt called tne behind the
wheel-house, and remarked that he
saw foreign land at last, and putting
his hand upon the pistol in his pocket,
he said he hoped to live to see the day
when he could return and serve An
drew Johnson a3 Abraham Lincoln
had been served. He said also that if
an English officer attempted to arrest
him, he would shoot him. I told him
if he did, he would meet with very little
mercy in England. He replied he knew
that, but he would do it never
theless, for he would sooner be hung
by an English jury than a Yankee
one, and that if he went to the Uni
