J-Vi . to Say. j New Yor.K, July 13th.— John Wilson Guitteau, a brother of the assassin, Rives a short family history in the lioaton Hi >■<'!•!. He denies that there has been insanity in either hU father's or rnothet'ij family, except the single case 'of Us father's brother, who died in an insane asylum from remorse at having killed a rival in a duel. He has but little personal knowledge of his brother's life ; thinks he w*s to a certain extent insane— whether insane to the extent of not knowing the moral character and i effect of his own act or of losing the power to restrain h:a criaioal intentions, if he had any desire to do co, will undoubtedly be properly investi gated, in the | light of ail the facts, by the proper tribunals. He resents the deed as a mest atrocious, foul and Moody murder, and a . crime sga'cst the nation and the progress of Christian civilization* throughout the woild. He concludes as fol lows : " I respectfully, and in deep humilia tion and sorrow, request the prayers of all who know God in spirit and in truth, that the Father may cause my brother's darkened un derstanding to be opened ; that the evil spirit which now possesses him may be cast out, and that he may in true penitence and sorrow turn, while he yet has life, to the God whom his father, mother and his ancestors for so many generations have loved and worshiped." The A*«n»ftln'» First Shot— A Man who Claim-, to have the Bnltet In III* IV.- session. Washington, July 13th.— The following communication has been published here : - Axxapolin, July 10,1881. Editor Star: As 1 was an • eyewitness »f the shout : n; of President Gariield, and being able to explain which shot entered. the Chief Maoist rate's body, and the course and presen' whereabouts of the ball that missed liiin, I - deem it proper to impart to you the information . I possess of the traced v, as it will : clear away the mystery of the lost builtt which the newspaper men ore trying to solve. In the Haiti more Sun on Friday I noticed a few lines that KpoKe the difference cf opinion as to whether it was the Er»t or second shot that struck President CarfleM, and the mystery that surrounded the bullet that entered his coat sleeve, as do trace of it could be fouml, thontrh the most diUjrectcearch was made for it. They may search till doomsday, but without suc cess, for the bullet thatentcred the President's sleeve a second af'i i" passed into my possession, and is ■till retained by me as a rd ; c, not akmc bee: use of it.j connection with the President, but principally because it very narrowly escaped BDt.-rinK my bo !y, which it certainly would have done had its l rr>»ress not been checke 1 by a largo filvcr medal, which I wore suspended from my neck, and which was pre sented to me by Key. Father '/.': itajr, formerly r.as (or of St. Mary's Church in this city. On the roaming of the 2.1 of July, being in (be vicioHy of the Baltimore and Potomac depot, an hearing that the President aid Cabinet would soon be nt the depot, I Mid my friend, Samuel Frazer, concluded to stop and see the treat man of whom we had heard so mv h but bad never before seen. We had not Ions: to wait, for soou the President and a gentleman whom I was told was Secretary Rlaino entered the depot, accompanied by a number of ladies. Two gentlemen walked to and fro cn^atfcd in conversation, wh le my friend and I sat on h bench and watched them. Soon the sharp rrack of a pistol burst upon the air, which was fo lowed alorost instantly by a second. On the instant that tba report of the first shot was lome to my cars I felt a stinging > crsation on ray ■■'.jest. ■ I left the place in a hurry, believing that Ili 1 1 been fatally shot. As noon an 1 could i stepped my chest hare and found that my life hail been saved h\ the medal that I hare worn I r twelve years. The f|>ot where the medal had rested felt sore and *vag very red. The bullet I found in my shirt bosom. I left Washinwtnn with my friend at noon, and arrive lii Annapolis at 2 o'clock r. M. I enjoined strict secrecy upon my friend, for I knew what trouble would follow if 1 was detained as a witness. The loss of my situation would surely follow if I was kept from my work, us my employer would have filled my place with some one else if i was detained in Washington one day. I will surrender the bullet if I am assured that it trill be returned to me if the District Attorney shall have no further use for it. Pleaao have this shown to C'orkhilL Any f urllier information you may desire, which I can give, I shall be happy to furnish yon with. NICHOLAS JACKSOX, No. 20 Cornliill street, Annapolis, Md.

" New York, July 13tb.— Th« Tribune's Washington special says : It is said upon good authority that one of Guitteau's letters now in possession of the District Attorney reflects bitterly on ] Maine, which leads to the inference that Guitteau entertained designs on the life of the Secretary of State as well as upon the President.

About 200 people were present to gee him eat his first meal.

He be lieved there was great virtue in fasting, and he was going to . fact ' longer than ■' necessary iv ' order -to : show that it was a good' remedial agent. It had once cured him when his physicians had Mid he must die. He did not believe is indiscriminate nor unnecessarily prolonged abstinence. At the conclusion of his speech he took a goblet of milk, and with the since deliberation that had marked ; bis motions all the I morning ■ while superintending the preparation of hi* breakfast,- drank slowly of its contents, which seemed to tempt him a* little as any of his observer?. Thea he era tiously dissected some milk toast, after which, preening hi* hand to his head, he complained of a slight headache. . This passed away, and he resumed his practice at the table, drinking coffee, and little by little taking a nibble at the contents of most of the dishes. , Although hungry i.nd possessed of a good appetite; he was not ravenous. The crowd lingered an hour or more, and thea left the wonder to himself. . .... .... ... .■.....;:. : ';■: '■■;-'■ The lown Flood*. Drs MoiNie, July 13;h. — lUccoon river continues ti> me.

Fifth Session of the State Prison Investigation Commission. THE MOBAL INSTBUOTOR'S HOUSE, Director Chapman Tells What He Knows cf (he Matter. EVIDENCE OF A CONTRACTOR ' 3 FOREKAIf. The Difference Between the Labor of Con victs and Free Ken. [SPECIAL BT TELEOKAPH TO TIIR itnCORDCSIOX.I Pan Quistm, July 13th.— The fifth ses sion of the San Joaipiin State Prison Investi gation Commission opened this morning at 10:30. Present, Commissioners Mills, Gibbs and Watt. Directors Neff, ISchell, BfWMa and Chapman, and J. J. Owen, of the San Jose Mercur;/, were also in attendance. 1 The reading of the minutes of the previous day were dispensed with. Judj;e Ames asked that the published state ment that Mr. Sheppard was a convict be corrected. He waa not, but was employed as a gaefitter and plumber. STATE PBISON RIHECTOR CHAPMAN Waa the first witness c»llecJ, and testified : Am one of the Prison Directors ; kcow of no order passed by the Board to build a home for the Moral Instructor. Mr. Owen here read a paper from Governor Perkins to Mr. Cummings, the Moral In structor, in which the Governor stited that he learn; d from Director Chaprain that the Board were going to instruct Judge Ames to bui'd a house, but as the statutes did not provide for a house for the Moral Instructor, it would be necessary for the Instructor to pay a rent lor it. Witnes3 — Xo ord;r or appropriation to build a housa was made by the Board ; there was some conversati>n on th* Bul»je> - ;, but cot at a basiaefs meeticg. I mentioned what we had said to tUa Governor, but as no order was passed the Governor probably misunderstood what I sai 1 ; did not lead tho Governor to believe that an order to build the house had been passed ; I told him that we had informally dhcusrej that] at the regular meeting of the Board. Some objec tions were raised in regard to the style of the house that it had been proposed to build, and the subject was dropped. It had been pro posed to build a bouse in the style of the Berkeley College. The Governor probably thought that the Board would carry out the idea we hud dtscussed, and on tl c ttrength of it wrote that letter to Mr. Cummings. The letter was written by tbe Governor before knowiug that no definite action had been taken in the matter. A COSTEACTOR"s KOEF.WAM. E. A. Falby was the next witness called, and testified : I am employed by Armes & Dallam, wood and willow-ware manufactur ers ; have been here in that capacity three years and ten months ; am familiar, as an objsrver, with the prison matters; think the front-gate keeper incompetent, and that he discharges his duties irregularly ; he frequent ly leaves the gate open ; the management of the gate is altogether in his hands ; the keys of the double gate are kept by him ; ciu't spec ify any other irregularities ; know nothing of his treatment of officers ; never have seen the Warden drink but once, but have caen him when I thought him under . the itiluence cf liquor ; when I taw hi;n drink, at the time I refer to, is was outside the prison limits ; in regard to the beef, it was very bad ; when it was being cooked I could dutiniruiib. tha of fensive smell in my shop ; my pUca it at ; least 150 feet from where ths bc-ef was cooked ; any cruelty to the convicts is from the fore men ; the convicts are often disposed to be insolent ; convict Traven was insolent to me ; I reported to tha Captain of the Yard about this man ; saw the same man often ; spoke to the officers about a convict I have with me now, who is often insolent and Uzy. To Mr. ?>lilU— l reported the case of inso lence, and he was confined in the dungeon for two days ; he always tried to beat the chop ; that i?, avoid hw work ; I knew of a convict named Spencer; he was not reported as a workman of the State for two days, although he was working all the day ; his time was transferred to another prisoner ; Arnie3 & Dallam paid for the work done by thU pris oner, but the amount was paid to another, whoee time was nearly out, and be would be soon discharged ; the . discharged prisoner would receive the money and cot the State ; the present discipline of the prison is not so good as under the last administration, speak ing as a foreman ; wo got more work out of the men during the last administration than we get out of the present one ; have reported this to Captaia Kis.in repeatedly ; have nine men under me at the present time ; have had one of them three years ; he is a good work man ! had a Chinaman two years and a half ; ha was a bad worker ; under the previous administration my complaints were always attended to (com no attention being paid to them, the value of the convicts' labor is depreciating. To Mr. Watt— ln the shop thera is a tally board ; when tha men come they are checked off, and the report compared with that cf the Captain of the Yard, to see that th<-y are all there. To Mr. Mills— The day's work is nine hours and a quarter ; we pay half a dollar for the labor of some, and a dollar for others ; convict labor, as compared with free labor, depends generally oo those wbo have control over the convicts ; under any conditions, convict labor is less productive than free la bor : the percentage would be about three to five ; the stock represents more than the la bor ; the stock would represent about 75 and the labor 25 per cent, of the total cost. \To Mr. Gibba— The wages of -free men, using a good many boy?, would be about $1 25 a day; for convict labor we pay 50 cents for some and Si for others ; our firm allows tobacco to convicts — one . plug a week ; the general moral " condition of the prison is, in my opinion and from my obser vation, fair ; have noticed that the men are less disposed lately to manifest that vicijus ness I at first noticed ; the labor they are en gaged in here has a reformatory tendency; they at first ridiculed the efforts of ,* the Moral Instructor ; at present they do not— at least ito " the same extent ; if the convicts were bossed by another convict , the result would be bad ; have heard many of them say they would not be bossed by a convist. "I ' To Mr. Watt — Have not seen any gambling d urine I the ; present ! administration ; ''■■ under Governor Low there was plenty of it ; it was done quite openly, and ■to a : very large ' ex tent ; have seen large sums . of , money ex change hands ; did not see any under Gov ernor Johnson'^, nor any under this adminis tratien. THE TRISON CLET.K SWORN, "' J. G. ''Hanks Vai'jcext sworn," but was withdrawn before any; material ".testimony was! elicite ', i and W. V. Ellis, clerk of : the prison, v as placed on the stand [and interro gated by Mr. Mills in" reference to a coayict , in i i.i ki:«:»i:i> i m»\ >r.Rt>. by the name of Sheldon, who hail incurred a bill for whisky at the saloon of . one : Farrell. The atnonnt of the debt had subsequently been deducted from money due the convict and in the hands of the clerk. The witness denied all knowledge of the liquor tmnuac tion. He had received from England a check for Sheldon, which Varrell had cashed in his presence, deducting therefrom the amount due him, but the witness did not know how the debt had been incurred. the PROSECCTIOS BESTS. The prosecution here rested its case, and Mr. Owen asked for an expression on the part of the Commissioners justifying him in the publication made in the San .lose Mercury concerning the State Prison. After consultation the Board announced that it deemed it inexpedient to make rack an ex pression of opinion at this stage of the pro ceedings. Coaniisstonera Watt and Uibbe, as individual members of the Board, stated that they deemed Mr. Owen's coarse perfectly justifiallr. Mr. Mills said it was seldom that journals were as careful as Mr. Owens" had been, or were in possession of as much information upon which to base charges against public institutions. SENATOR SSARS TKSTinKS. Win. H. Sear.', a State Senator, was called by the Commission and questioned in refer ence to hi* knowledge of a law passed by the U«t l«~>Utare *Uowin|r the Prison Directors $100 per month for expense*. Witness said the object of the law was to define ami specify the obligations of the State, it being more desirable that the people of the State, should know what they had to pay, rather than that it be left undeteruiinate. He be lieved he was the author of the bill. No in fluence had been brought to bear on him by th 9 Warden or Directors in the matter ; had conversed with thorn oa the subject, but did not think it was until after the bill had been introduced. Was of the opinion that the measure waa constitutional. Witcess was interrogated in reference to the pur chase of lands from Dsvid Porter by tbo Prison Directors for brick yard.*. The land had been bought for $300 an acre ; he hid advocated m appropriation for that pur pose, in the Legitlatuie ; was attorney for Porter in the transaction, and was his legal adviser in other matters. He thought the land hid been purchased for a reasonable price. The testimony of Mr. Seirs mm in terrupted by that of J. D. XARRELL, A saloon keeper, who had fold liquor to Shel don, a< hjfora related above. lie did not think that Mr. Ellis knew that Sheldon owed him for liquor. Hid commenced writing a receipt for Sheldon after being paid the in debtedness, but refused, on account of tha impudence of Sheldor. Ha 1 n1 i liquors to convicts ; waa never informed by the prison authorities that such t ales were contrary to law, but once, and that was by the Captain of the Guard of a former administration. William H. Sear?, recalled — Was the au thor of the bill making an appropriation tii the State Prison fur the establishment of a jute manufactory ; took an interest in prison mat ters ; had studied but little on reforma tory prisons, and waa not prepared to atate by what system reformatioi could ba best effected. Had known Warden Ames for fifteen years ; had never seen him intoxica ted ; had drank with him on two occasions ; once the Warden draak onsets water and one: cider. DONALD BOVTHKRtAXU, Foreman in the prison shops for J. G. John son &Co was call*! by the Commission. Had worked in the prison fjr seventeen years'. Formerly had been in the employ of Stone & '■ Haydon as general manager. v He had be tween fifty and s:xty convicts under hi* charge, whom he paid fifty cents a day after they had been a certain length of time at tho business, lie was of the opinion that prison discipline was as goo] cow as under past ad ministrations. I'endirg the further ex adication of Sontberlan'l, WILLIAM IHVISE Was sworn for the defense and testified that he ha I known Waiiljn Ames for seveial years, and f cr the last three years intimately ; , had seen him under a variety of circumstances, : in the political canvass, in Court proceeding?, at eating and drinking place?, and at hi; own house, and had never seen him under the in fluence of liquor. Ha bad known him to drink wine and other intoxicants, but had never Feen him drink twicj on the same occa sion. Mr. Seminarian:! was then recalled. He testified that _ prison la iion Was only half as valuable c? free labor when compulsory ; when compensated in any de gree for their labor, however, they did more work, and he knew some convicts equal in capacity to f roe men. It was the habit of contractors to give convicts a premium en goo 1 work. Under some previous administra tions compensation in money had sot been permitted, but the prisoners had always received tobacco for their services. Even this had a tendency to increase the value cf their labor. Witness had not much con£ deuce in lha efficacy of moral instruction upon convicts ; they were inclined to cccut at religion ; if separated from each other, this might not be tha case. The influ ence of labor lie considered benefi cial. , Religions teachings alone, . with out work, would, in the majority of cases make prisoners worse when they left the penitentiary than when they entered it. Moral instruction, combined with, labor, might exert some beneficial effect. Witness had known of convicts who pretended to have been converted, but the majority of such prisoners had returned to prison after their discharge, and he doubted that their regener ation was real. Most criminals did not ex hibit any conception of religious principles. As a class they were SOT ILLITERATE. Nearly all could read, and were fond of read ing. He thought prison libraries exerted a. good influence. Men who entered prison whet under 23 years of age were rarely re formed, and generally were convicted of a second offense. Had known cases of older men who seemed ; to have undergone a gen uine reformation ; he also remembered cases of convicts who had led honest lives for three or four years after their discharge, »nd then reoffended. They attribute their fall in most cases to ;■'" the influence of other criminals. Many prisoners have been discharged whom he had never seen again, but it wag probable that they had left the State and had been incarcerated in other penal institutions. , He thought it likely that other States also contributed their quota to the criminal population of this State. Men who ; have been convicted of burglary, ' and then discharged, were generally, leincarcer ated for burglary. CRIME IS DIVIDED IKTO DIFFERENT CLASSES, And criminals of one class rarely change to another. Thus a man convictel of (■' age robbery would keep on robbiDg B'ages, and a forger would keep on forging. With persons convicted of manslaughter and offensea which might be the result of violent ebullitions of passion it was citferent, and the man who in the first instance n as confine! for an assault to murder mig'.t le convicted the second time for some other crime. This would prob ably be the res alt c f prison association. As ft whole, the witness was not much inclined to [COSUHVSD 9H USI PAOB.J
