In accordance with previous notice, a meeting was held in this town on Wednesday morning last, at 12 o’clock, in the Methodist Episcopal Church, composed of the respective congrega tions of the Methodist Episcopal, Methodist Protestant and Presbyterian Churches, iu respect to the memory of the late President of the Uni ted States, whose funeral obsequies, by appoint ment, took place at that hour in Washington city. The Church was thoroughly draped in mourn ing, and the stars and stripes, in deep mourning, hung in solemn folds over the entrance. The bouse was well filled with solemn and anxious worshipers, and all seemed deeply to feel the so lemnities of the hour. The exercises were opened with a solemn dirge by the Choir, which was followed by the reading of the 90fh Psalm, by the Rev. J. K Nichols, when he offered some remarks appropriate to the occasion, and after singing, offered prayer to Almighty God. He was followed by Rev, Dr. Ilond, in some well-timed and most appropriate reflections, and after singing, he also offered prayer to the Great Sovereign of the world.— Rev. K. Kinzey followed with some excellent re marks on the providences of God, when the Choir again sung, and he offered prayer to Heaven. The Choir then sung a chant, and the congregation wasdismissed with the benediction, by Rev. W. D. Lilsinger. Tbe Revs. Messrs. Bolton and Greenfield were also in the pulpit, and it is due the Rev. Mr. Smith, of the Presbyterian Chun h, to say that lie was prevented from being present and taking part in the solemnity, by domestic affliction in the death of a relative. WAR NEWS. A telegram from Washington states that Gen eral Sherman has announced to the Government tliel he has opened communication with General Johnson, with a view to the surrender of the forces commanded by the latter officer, on the same terms as were agreed upon between Gens. Grant and Lee, and that it was believed they would be accepted. From New Orleans via Cairo it is reported that Forts Spanish and Blakely, which defended ihe approaches to Mobile, were taken by assault on the morning of Ihe 9lli instant, and that five thousand seven hundred prisoners and a large amount of ordnance stores hud been captured in those works. The troops and gunboats subse quently moved up to Mobile, which was also oc cupied by a portion of Gen. Smith's command, after a brief resistance by the enemy. The Winchester, Virginia, correspondent of the New Voik Herald says that an officer, now in command of two regiments of Confederate tioops in the valley that were formerly under Imboden, has offered to surrender his command on tbe same terms that had been granted to Gen Lee Gen. Rosser, whose cavalry was also in the valley, had, on the other hend, expressed hie determination not to yield, but, being deserted by his men, be hud gone south to join the forces under Gen. Johnston. Assassination of President Lincoln. Attempt to Take the Life of Secretary Seward. A brief telegram from Washington an nounces tbe awful tidings that President Lincoln was abut last night, and mortal!}' wounded. A later telegram gives the particulars of the assassination. President Lincoln, together with Mrs. Lincoln and somt friends, visited Fold’s Theatre last even ing ids intention of doing so having been announced in the Washington paper The play was “Our American Cousin.’’— During the third act, and whilst there was a temporary pause for one of the uo tors to enter, a sharp report of a pistol was beard, which, however, septus to have attracted but little attention, until a man, flourishing a dagger, and exclaiming sic temper tyravnis, sprang upon the stage from one of the second tier boxes, and es caping byway of the rear of the stage, mounted a horse and fled. The cries of Mrs. Lincoln gave to tbe astonished au dience the first intimation that the Presi dent was wounded. It was soon found that tbe wound was mortal. Ho had been shot through the head, above and back of the temporal bone, and through the orifice thus created some of the brain oozed out. Tbe weapon, a com mon single barrelled pistol, wag found on the carpet near the cushioned rocking chair on which be had been seated. He was immediately conveyed to a private residence, and at midnight the members of tbe Cabinet and a number of promi nent persons, among whom were Messrs Sumner, Colfax and Farnsworth, Gov Oglesby and General Meigs, assembled at his bedside. He was then in a dying state, and although tbe surgeons were ex hausting every effort of medical skill, all hope of saving bis life bad beeu aban doned. Whilst the excitement at the theatre was at its wildest height, it was reported that Secretary Seward had also been as sassiuated, and ou reaching his residence, it was found true, in so far, that a daring attempt had bepn made to take bis life, although, it is thought, that he may yet possibly recover from the serious wounds inflicted on him. , From such imperfect particulars as could be gathered, it appears that at about ten o’clock last evening a man rang the bell of Mr. Seward’s bouse, and on tbe door being opened by a colored servant, the stranger said he had been sent by Mr. Seward’s family physician with a prescrip tion, and that he must see the Secretary personally as he had been intrusted with particular directions concerning the medi cine. On the refusal of the servant to al low him to pass, tbe mao pushed tbe lat ter aside, and after reaching tbe chamber and disabling Mr. Frederick Seward, Ma jor Seward, Mr. Hansell, and two male nurses, rushed upon Secretary Seward and stabbed him three times in the ueuk ; but, it is believed, that although seriously injured no mortal wound was inflic ted. We have thus condensed the de tails of this bloody and atrocious outbreak of passionate revenge, although tbe min uter narrative, as given by the Associated Press, will not fail to be universally read. —Baltimore Gazette, 15tA nut. Correspondence qf the New York Daily News, THE ASSASSINATION OF THE PRESI DENT. All the circumstances preceding, at tending and succeeding tbe perpetration of the horrible deed point so conclusively in one direction that no one presumes to doubt that President Lincoln was assassi nated by John Wilkes Booth, Booth has been an irregular guest at the National Hotel for several months past. He retired from the stage some time since, and has lately been engaged in the oil business, in which it is understood he had amassed a considerable fortune. On Monday last he arrived in Washington, some say from Baltimore, others say from a (arm which be is said to own at B aid g Ferry, on the lower Potomac. As usual, he put up at tbe National Hotel, aud u -frequently seen on Pennsylvania' avenue iu company with friends and casual ac quaintances. On Friday morning he visi ted Ford’s theatre, and, in conversation at the box office, learned that the President aud Gen. Grant would attend the thea tre in the evening. This information did not appear to produce any effect on him. He soon after went away, and during the afternoon visited a stable near tbe hotel and hired a horse to which the proprietor attached great value, between 6 and 7 o’clock. He was seen on Pennsylvania avenue, aud those who knew him noticed he appeared rather abstracted and agitated About nine o’clock he stopped at the ho tel and received two cards which had been left there for him. After reading the names on the cards be asked the clerk for some note paper, and proceeded to write at the office. His abstracted manner was here noticed by the clerk. He uppi arod to have been drinking, and before com mencing the letter asked the clerk whai mouth and year it was. The clerk re marked familiarly; “Wtll, Booth, have you made a thousand dollars to day ?” Booth replied, “No, but I have worked 'hard enough for it.” Soon alter lie left the hotel, and was not seen there after ward. About ten o’clock, or perhaps some minutes after, the exact time was not 'noticed, Booth rode dowu an alley lead ing from F street to the rear of the tbea Ire, and dismounting, culled for the stage carpenter, and requested him to hold the horse. The carpenter was about to take the bridle over the horse’s head, but Booth objected, requesting him to have the bridle on tbe animal's neek and hold him by the bit. Booth then entered by the stage door, and remained a few mo merits. Ou coming out he left tbe door standing open, but this wasn' t particular ly notice ti at tbe time. He theu passed around to the front of the theatre, and en tered, as he was in the habit of going there almost nightly, wh< u in the city His presence did nut attract unusual at tention from the attaches of the building Passing upstairs he was next seen on the same side of tbe tier with the box in which the President was sitting. Au unusually large audience was present, expecting to see the Prt sidt ut and General Grant, and the passage way between the sofas and the wall of tbe building was crowded with per sons who could not obtain seats. Some of tbe ushers noticed Booth edging bis way through tbe crowd, and remarked that be was acting strangely iu pushing so close to the President's box ; but, as be enjoyed all the privileges of a regular attacliee of the theatre, he was allowed to procetd-—- There are two boxes ou the right hand side of the audience, with a door leading to each. A partition divides these boxes, and whenever the President visiteu the theatre this partition was removed. The door of the hoz next the stage is parallel with the side scenes. Tbe other stands gt an angle with the first When tbe deed was committed tbe Prtsident was silting iu the box nearest the audience, with his back toward the angel formed by the wall and stage side ot the other box. Mrs Lincoln was sit ting in the box next the stage. Miss Harris was in the same box with Mrs. Lincoln, and Major Buthbun was sitting on a sofa near the door. A sentinel was stationed in the passage between tin por tion of tbe tier set apart for the public and 'the door leading to the President’s box His duty was to prevent any one ap preaching the President. When Booth .approached be was stopped by tbe senii 'nel and told (bat he could uut enter.— Booth then told the sentinel that be must see the President ou important business, 'and gave tbe name of some distinguished man whose name was familiar to the guard. His gentlemanly and genteel ap pearance deceived the sentinel, who al lowed him to pass to tbe President’s box. Filtering quickly by tbe open door the as sassin raised his pistol in an instant, and lodged tbe fatal bullet in the President’s brain. It is said that he theu fired asi - enud shot, which passed through tbe door behind the President, but this is out posi tively known. He then dropped tbe pis tol and sprang to tbe front of' tbe box. — M-jiir Ilalhbun attempted to inhrcepl him, and, while springing forward for ibat purpose, received a stub iu tbe arm trum .i dagger, which was drawn by the assassin when be dropped tbe pistol. Kcstingoue hand on tbe balustrade aud brandishing the dagger in the other, Booth vaulted tipou the stage, which, at that moment, was un occupied by acton. Tbe distance from ■7—— '2 the box to the stage is about fifteen feet On alighting. Booth fell upon one knee, hut, quickly regaining hie feet, he rushed towards the door by which he first enter od the theatre, and out to the alley in which the horse was standing. While Booth was in the theatre the stage carpenter bad given the horse in charge of a boy employed about the build ing. Booth sprang to the saddle, striking the boy with the hilt of the dagger as he did so, and sped off at full gallop. While making from the stage be en countered the leader of the orchestra, ami made a lunge at him with the dagger, but did not succeed in slabbing him Miss Laura Keene was standing close to the passage when Booth rushed to the alley. Before any one had recovered sufficient presence of mind to pursue him he had escaped. A Pointed Rebuke. A d<bate took place in the U. 8. Senate recently, on the question of illegal arrests It was contended by many S' uators ol both parties that no man tan he arrested without ‘‘due process of law,'’ and that military trials are unconstitutional Con ness, who misrepresents the great State o California in the Senate, in his speech on the subject, said he “cared nothing for the Constitution." Senator Trumbull of Illinois, replied to the expression used by Conness, and in doing so literally skin tied the poor California Infidel alive. We quote from the Globe : Mr. Trumbull. A word or two, and only a word or two, as to the Senator from California, [Mr. Conness,] who modestlv assumes so much patriotism ; and if pa li iotism consists in noise and blast r, he certainly is possessed of a great deal He made himself heard most certainly, and he talks of “croaking,” and of “cowards,’’ and says that he cares nothing f r the Constitution, so that he has a country He had better migrate to Dahomey, or somewhere else, where there, is a country I care, sir, for the Constitution and h r liberty, and I think a country or life its ilf scarcely worth having without liben\ —without liberty regulated by law Bu 1 he is bold and brave ! bold enough to vio late his oath aud defy the Almighty ! Yes, sir, bold and brave, and would sink the Government, would vote againt all ap propriatious, sooner than not have the power to try a man by a court martial or a military commission ! That great pa triol would stand here and vote— von against appropriations for ihe Army or anything else, if'be could not arrest some body and try him in a loyal state, when the courts are open, by military commis sion or court-martial ! He says substan tially, “I will not appropriate to sustaii our soldiers; the rebi Is may come her and tear down the Capitol and destroy tin Govtrnminl, because I, the Infidel Sena tor from California, cannot he pirmitteo to have somebody arrested—no, not arres ted, but cannot have somebody tried by i, court martialaud ihat is his patriotism that is his love of country 1 And be av> no provost marshal arrested him. Why, sir, those who “crook the pregnant iiing - of the knee where thrill may follow fawn ing” are never arrested. Mr Conness rose. Presiding Officer : Docs the Stna 'or from Illinois give way ? Mr Trumbull : When lam through the Senator can talk if he wishes Hi need not expect to he arrested ; oh no. sir ! But the liberty he ralks of is tin liberty of the highwayman. Disregard law ! How is he any better than the bn gatid who meets you at night and call up.in you to stand and deliver? No re- I gat'd for law j he cans “nothing for tin Constitution," so that he has a country mid he talks of cowards and etoukers ! I am not brave enough, thank God ! J am not hold enough to walk up to that stand and lay my band upon tin w rds of Eternal Life and promise, calling God to witness, to maintain the Constitution, auo then say I care nothing for it ! lam not hold enough to make such u declaration L hope 1 never may be. Sir, if nothin, should restrain us from treating with con t- nipt the constitution of the country, tin oath we have taken should restrain us, the appeal we have made to the Supreme Be ing, should withhold us from such adeela raitou. 1 say that Ido care for the Con stitution anil for law and lor lihertv, aim that 1 aui tor pr-serving them all, and the country and the Union also, for it is he Constitution and liberty that mak<- tin Union worth preserving Without them a Union forced by arbitrary power, a Union such as is brought about by the heel of despotism is not the Unton I am struggling tor. It is not the Union rhai tie brave soldiers of the republic are fight mg tor They go forth to battle for lb purpose of main'uiuing the Government thi tr lathers founded, fur the purpose of maintaining the Constitution under which they themselves have enjoyed freedom, and handing it down for the protection ot their posterity. It is f r this wi are tight mg, and uot simply for power, or to try a man by a court-martial or a mdiiary cunt mission 1 have no disposition to prolong the de bate. I d not desire the bill to he h at, nut I have felt it due to myseli, after the rematks made by tin Senator Ifom Cab f rnia, to say thus much. Many Murders—lt is noticeable how, in this fifth year of the war, the num b, rof civil crimes is increasing. Some of the tragedies recently enacted in both East and Wes' are of a lerriblc character, ami the details of the executions succeed ing them are almost as revolting us the original bloodshed. Cases have transpir ed where whole families have been butch ered, aud many of the crimes com mitten have been treacherous aud unuamrul be yond parallel. All this shows the slow but certain demoralization of war, when life becomes so cheap that bid men take it without compunction. We ■ annul now remedy the evil, aud must be contented witli remarking it aud regretting it.— N. ¥ Mercury. * &President Johnson is nearly two mouths older thau President Lincoln was. The New Republican Plank. The right of freed negroes to vote is the I new plank-in the Republican platform P Weudell Philips declares that “this is lib erty according to the Northerq interpreta tion.” George Thompson, the Englishman from whom Republicans learn how Ame rica should be governed, says : “I agree with Mr. Philips that your Constitution needs two amendments, one prohibiting slavery throughout the Union, and anoth er forbidding the States to enact laws which shall make any distinction among their citiz- ns, on account of race or col or. I desire to see the negro enfran chised, protected by the ballot, placed upon a footing of absolute civil and po litical equality with the white man. I believe that this country is to be saved through the negro, and fir the negro.”— Frederick Douglass, maintaining the fit ness ot the present hour fur insisting upon the right of the treed negroes to citizen hip, says : “This is the hour. Now is the time to press this right;’’ and Wil- I liam Lloyd Garrison chimes in as follows: 9 “Glory, Alleluia, Amen aud zVtucn.’’— 9 Upon all the above the Independent com- I ttiets thus: “We think the above ex- 9 raets are good reading—hearty, good- N tempered, sound and durable. If any- I body differs with us in this opinion, lot I him sponge away from his mind the stain I of old time prejudice against the excellent 9 men whose names wo have quoted, and 9 whose ‘good,’ we trust, may now cease ‘to I be evil spoken of.’’ The Independent is certainly right in |j demanding that the true leaders of the 9 Republican party, Philips, Thompson, 1 Garrison and I‘red. Douglass, the men 9 whoso ideas guide and rule it, shall have ■ recognition lor their rightful authority.— 9 They have always been one step in ad- 9 v..nce of the time Servers, the politicians 5 and the rank aud file of the party; but ■ ihese have never yet failed to keep step I with them and follow closely on. The !y Times, for example, is just now spitting | un this plank as it used to spit upon the 9 Abolition plank, before it became the 9 most enthusiastic Abolition sheet of all. | But it will have only its trouble for its 9 pains, now as then. It must walk up to S the scratch and too it within a very few months, aud Free Suffrage for the Free 9 Negro will be its future cry, as sure as the 1 sun rises and sets. 1 Indeed the Republican caucus which iJ was lately held at Washington made no 3 hones of the matter. It was there resolv- S ed upon that the vote of the freed negroes !S “f the South was an absolute necessity to 9 the dwindling Republican party at the B ■North.; that, with the negro vote secured, ■ they could hold on to power for an indeti- 9 nite tern, of years, and, by keeping up a % large military establishment after peace is B declared, hold down the whites of the ■ South, and retain a secure hold at the E North on the contractors, manufacturers, J and those who profit by the war expendi- yf turcs.
