JUSTICE^ LAST. "EEMOYAL" Of the Assassin. A WORTHLESS LIFE Fittingly Ended Upon tho Gal lows. DETAILS OF THE LAST HOURS. A Prayer and Poem Read Upon the Scaffold. GUITEAU. United States Jail, Washington, D. C, June 30.— Guiteau was very restlera during the most of the latter part of the night, not sleeping more than twenty minutes at a time. Towards morning he fell into a sounder sleep, from sheer exhaustion. He rose afe w minutes after 5, and breakfasted heartily at 6:30. When the cook took his breakfast into the cell Guiteau told him to bring his dinner at 11 o'clock promptly. Dr. Hicke, who remained at the jail all night, wa6 called into tbe prison er's cell as soon as he rose, and held conversa tion on rellcrious subjects with him. at 8 o'clock Dr. Hicks saw the prisoner again when he made the request to have a bith and asked Hicks to go out and seethe scaffold. GuHeau desired him to arrange with the warden to have the trap sprung as soon after 12 o'clock ac possible. He also expressed considerable anxiety lest some accident should occur, and insisted that Hicks should see that the scaf fold and its appurtenances were all in proper condition. After Guiteau ha<? disposed of these matters he read a poem composed by himself which he calls "Simplicity, or Reli gious Baby Talk." Af terjreading it aloud HE ATTEMPTED TO BINO IT, but broke down in the effort. Guiteau then talked for 6ome time about the future. He remarked his heart was tender. "I don't think," he said, "I cau go through this ordeal without weeping; not because of any great weakness, for the principle in me is felrong, but because I am nearer the other world. I hold to the idea that God inspired me." Guiteau subsequently asked that in his books all complimentary remarks about Pres ident Arthur and his administration be eliminated. Then he presented to Hicks the books that have been companions of his lonely hours. He told Hicks that he wanted him to offer, first, a PRATER ON THE SCAFFOLD, saying that he (Guitean), would then read his favorite eeripturd passage, the tenth chap ter of John and ofler prayer on his own ac count. Then he intended, he said, to read his poem, 'Simplicity.'' He desired to have the execution so arranged that just as ho uttered the last word the drop should be sprung. John W. Guiteau arrived at the jail at 9 o'clock, and was followed in a few minutes by Warden Crocker. These two gentlemen with Hicks had a con sultation as to the disposition of the body. At 9:15 the prisoner came out in the corridor very briskly, making it rather difficult for his guards to keep pace with him. The scene about the jnl this morning is UNIQUE. The office of the jail has been given com pletely up to a large corps of newspaper re porters, and a squad of them are 6cnbblmg away on every table, window sill and every projection that offers a rest for paper. Many newspaper reporters remained all night. - The private office of the warden has been trans ferred temporarily into a telegraph office. At 9 o'clock there was a constant stream of per sons coming into the jail. The scene outside was like that of SOME GREAT GALA OCCASION. Some enterprising colored men bad erected booths from which they dispensed lemonade, rakes and other refreshments to the weary arid thirsty people who began before 9 o'clock to assemble iv the road in front of the jail. Mounted messengers speeding to and from the city, acd carriages briagiug visitors to the jail kept a continual cloud of dust hover ingover the road that winds through the wide coininou that lies between the jail and city. At 10 o'clock (faitean expressed a desire to take v bath, and a large tub whs tiken into his cell. At this hour no one but the death watch wa3 with hiai, Guit eau nervously disrobed and bathed. It was quite apparent to the guard, who was watch iug -his every movement, that his object in a^iuc for a bath was simply to obtain some employment which might distract his thought from the dread contemplation of his approach ing death. He evinced increased uervousness and his uncertain movements, distrait manner and the marked tremor of his tones when he attempted to speak, impressed the guard with the belief that he is RAPIBL.Y WEAKENING. The rotunda was thrown open at 10 o'clock. The newspaper men at once flocked in. There were few other people there except the jail guards aud atquad of artillerymen, who looked dowu upon the scene from the high s-teps leading to the fcaflold. Early this morning the prisoners in the part of the jail orerlookinc the court where the Daily gallows stands were all removed to other quarters and locked in cells. At 9 o'clock, as a fort of rehearsal of the part they were to play in the execution, for the purpose chiefly of testing the appliances of the gallows, a bag of Rand weighing 160 poundß was attached to the noose, the trap was sprung by means of a trigger rope which was passed into one of the cells of the north wing. The ropa on the scaffold stood the test well. At 10 o'clock Mr. Hicks and John W. Guiteau went with Gen. Cr*cker to the scaf fold, together with a number of guards. John W. Guiteau ascended the steps and care fully examined the structure, handling the rope and carefully ' Inspecting all the fix tures both above and below the platform. BENEFIT OF THS T. U. C. A. A telegram f ram New York signed J. B. Bunnell, received about 10 o'clock by Dr. Hicks, asks if the sender could obtain pos session of Guiteau's body to exhibit for the benefit of the Young Men's Christian asso ciation. Dr. Hick's paid no attention to the message. The order of the procession to the scaffold as agreed upon this morning is as follows: Warden Crocker and one of his officers will appear first, followed by Dr. Hicks; then will come the prisoner in charge ef two guards, Coleman and Woodward. Behind them will walk, two by two, Jones, Hudson, Johnson and Crocker, (four jail officers) the latter a brother of the warden. At 10 o'clock seventy policemen arrived at the j til, and were posted along the roadway outside the building. In addition to the regular jail guards all the available men of Battery C, Second United States artillery are now on duty outside the jail. Bhortly before 11 o'clock Guiteau called for paper, and for twenty minutes busied him self in making a copy of what he terms his "prayer on the scaffold." As his hands will be pinioned, Dr. Hicks will hold the manu script while Guiteau reads. Now that he is employed he appears much calmer, and is rapidly completing his work, writing in a large, round and legible hand. MRS. SCOVILLE. At 1 1 o'clock contrary to the general ex pectations and purposes as expressed yester day, Mrs. Scovillc arrived at the jail and sought admission. She appeared to be labor ing under great excitement. Gen. Crocker declined to admit her unless the prisoner specially requested it. John W. Guiteau, who was sitting in the rotunda at the time, wag in formed that his gihter was on the outside, and at first be started to go to her, but after a moment's kesitation decided not to interfere, sayiiig, "I will leave the whole matter with Gen. Crocker." Guiteau has not been informed of Mrs. Sco ville's presence, and even if he was aware that she is here, it is believed he would not desire to have her present. His great desire now eeeuis to be that there shall be no scene, and hio programme shall be carriei out without any intervention or incident to detract from the HEROIC PICTURE which he believes he is about to present. At 10 o'clock there was a large crowd of news paper correspondents crowding about the <ate leading iuto Guiteau'i corridor, but they could 6ee nothing except the wooden door which screens Guiteau'* cell from view. Now and then a fcuird appeared at the door and sent come message to the warden. At such times tuose v.t the gate got a view of the table, corridor and chair on which the death-watch sat. After Guiteau had finished copying his "prayer upon the scaffold" he begin lo ar range his dress, putting on a pair of navy blue trousers. At 10:30 the guard came out of the door and said "lie is ready for Doctor Hicks now and wants flo«*ers to come. Another guard, who took the message, hurried off anl soon returned with Hick*, who went iuto the ceil. Guiteau was then reported by the guard to be apparently very composed. (iuiteau's mes sage about flowers referred to his expectation that Mrs. Saoviile would send some ilawers to him, but none had arrived at the time he ask*d for them. After a short conference with Crocker John W. Guiteau went outside of the jail to see his sister. He found her in great excitement bordering upon hysteria, but after a short time he succeeded In calming her and dissuading hvr from any attempt lo gain admission. She ackfiowleiiged the good propriety of euch a course, but said she could not possibly remain in the city during all the wretched hours of the morning. She brought witn her the flowers which Guiteau asked for and they were taken to the prisoner. Mrs. Scoville also brought two handsome flower pieces, a cross and anchor, which she will place upou her brother's coffin with her own hands. 11:35 A. m. While D.-. Hicks was in the prisoner's cell at 11 o'clock Guiteau made some requests as to the execution, and having made copies of his "last prayer," poem and other writing tore up the original. He then sent for the jail bootblack and gave him his shoestobeshined. His dinner was Drought as the doctor was leaving and ho ate with much relish. His dinner consisted of a pound of broiled steak, a dish of boiled potatoes, four slices of toast ani a quart of coffee. Dr. Hicks, when he catno out of the cell, said the prisoner had NOT THE SLIGHTEST FEAR. "We have had a pleasant religious talk. He feels now his preparation and he is ready for the last formality. He commits himself to God with utmost confidence. I think he will 6how some emotion, because the nervous strain ie so great." Nobody, Dr. Hicks said, had seen the pris oner at that time, except himself and the jii officers. At 11 o'clock, Dr. A. E. Mac Donald of New York and Dr. Francis Loring of this city, expert witnesses at Guiteau's trial, arrived. At the jail Dr. Mac Donald said, as he under stood it, an autopsy would be performed by three physicians, agreed upon by the friends of the condemned man. Afterwards the brain would be removed for further examination. The three physicians selected to perform the autopsy are Dr. Lamb, who made the autopsy of the president, Dr. Savers an** Dr. Hartigan, the deputy coroner of this city. Dr. Loring expects to make a thorough examination of the prisoner's eyes. Shortly before 12 o'clock Guiteau eeemed to BREAK DOWN COMPLETELT and burst into tears and sobbed hysterically. Dr. Hicks sat by hb side fanning him and vainly trying to calm him. About 11.30 preparations began to be made for the execu tion. At 11:50 a detachment of artillery was formed on the east 6ide of the rotunda and brought their muskets to a parade rest. At that time almost 250 people were in the rotuoda. Dr. Hicks was with the prisoner and engaged in prayer. The crowd outside the juil had got word that Guiteau had been tucged and was rending the air with shouts, so it was impossible to heir a voice inside the jai! office. Guiteau showed great nervous ness and appeared greatly start'.ed when he heard the rattle of muskets on the stone floor of the rotuuda. From that moment Gaiteau appeared to be thoroughly overcome with emotion. He wept freely and seemed to be in gre-it anguish. "THE SCENE IN THE ROTUNDA yhile waiting for the prisoner, was one long obe remembered. The soldiers were drawn >n oae side, a long line of spectators facing hem on the other. It was understood that Guiteau wa6 very much depressed, and it was expected that his passage to the gallows would present a very distressing sight. The movement of officers about the jail door was noticed with eager at tention. After the death warrant was read by the warden the prisoner became more com posed and turning away began to brush his hair. At 12:25 a loud steam whistle was blown at BT, PAUL, SATUBUAY MORNING, JULY 1, 1882— SIX PAGES. the workhouse which is near the jail. This whistle usually blows at 12 o'clock, and by it Guiteau was in the habit of gauging time. The delay to day was by special arrangement, so that its startling summons might not come before tbe officers were ready. Two minutes later tbe iron gates at the end of the corridor clicked. Then Warden Crocker made bis appearaice, and a moment later the familiar FIGCBB OF SCITBAC WAS SEEN. His face was pallid, and the muscles about his mouth meved nervously. Other than this, there was no sign of faltering. The proces sion moved quickly to the scaffold and Guiteau ascended the somewhat steep steps with as much steadiness as could be expected from a man whose arms were tightly pinioned. At the last step he faltered for a moment, but was assisted by the officers who walked upon either side. Upon reaching the platform Guiteau was placed immediately be hind the drop, facing the front of the scaffold. Capt. Coleman stood upon his right, Robert Strong upon his left and Woodward directly behind him, Jones took a position on the north side near the beam. Warden Crocker took his position at the northeast corner of the structure. There was a slight delay while the spectators were push ing and jostling through the door leading from the rotunda to the corridor, at the lower end of which the gallows was placed. Guiteau meanwhile gazed upon the crowd, looked up at the beam over his head and quickly made a survey of all the dread para ph-.-r i alia. As soon as tbe crowd gained ac cess, Gen. Crocker waived to them to un cover, and all heads were bared. Dr. Hicks then prayed in these words: "Father, out of the depths we cry to thee. Hear thou our supplication for the sake of Jesus Christ, the Savior, who has made full propitiation for us. Behold this, thy servant. We humbly pray thou will deliver him at this supreme moment of his life. Let thy light descend upon him; liberate his soul from its prison. May he appear before you absolved by thy great mercy from the blood guiltiness brought upon him and us. God have mercy on to us. Christ have mercy on us. The Limb of God that taketh away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Amen and amen. During the prayer Guiteau stood with bow ed head. At its conclusion Dr. Hicks opened the Bible and Guiteau in a firm tone said. "I will read a selection from the tenth chap ter of Matthew, from the 28th to the 41st verses, inclusive." He read in a clear, strong voice and with good intonation, showing little if any nervous ness. Dr. Hicks then produced the manu script which was prepared by the prisoner this morning and held it before him while Guiteau react. While Dr. Hicks was arrang ing the manuscript Guiteau exhibited slight nervousness, and moved several times from one foot to the other. He soon recovered his composure and looked over the sea of upturn* ed faces. . "I am now going to read to you my last dying prayer." He then read in a loud tone and with distinct and deliberative emphasis the fol lowing : THE yiUTER ON TBE SCAFFOLD. "My dying prayer on the gallows : '•Father, vow Igo to thee. Savior, I have finished tlie work thou gayest me to do, and I am only too happy to go to thee. The world does not yet appreciate my mission, but thou knowest it. Thou knowest thou didst inspire Garfield'i removal, and only good has come from it. This is the best evidence that this in spiration came from thee, and I have set it forth in my book that all men may read and rary know that thou, Father, didst the act for which I am murdered. " i h s government and nation by this act I know will incur thy eternal emnity, as did the Jews by killing thy man, my Savior. The re tribution in that case came quick and sharp, and I know thy divine law of retribution wiil strike this nation and my murderers in the same way. The diabolical spirit of this nation, its government and ite newspapers towards me will justify thea in cursiug them, and j know that the divine law of retribution is in exorable. I, therefore, predict this nation will go down in blood, and my murderers, from the executive to the hangman, will go to hell. Tny laws are inexorable. Ob! Thou supreme judge; woe unto the men that violate thy laws, only weeping and gnashing of teeth awaits them! "The American press has a large bill to settle with thee, righteous Father, for their vindic tiveness in this matter. Nothing hut blood will satisfy them, and now my blood will be on them and the nation and its officials. Ar thur, the president, is a coward and an in grate. His ingratitude to the man that made him and 6aved his party and land from over throw, has no parallel in history, but thou, righteous Father, will judge him. Father thou knowest me, but the world hath not tknown me, and now I go to thee and the Say iour without the slightest ill will toward a human being. Farewell, ye men of earth " At several points he paused and endeavored to impart increased emphasis to his words by the peculiar facial expression so often ob served during the trial, when he was angered at something which was said or doae. This was particularly noticeable when he alluded to President Arthur and when he predicted that this nation would go down in blood. When he had finished reading his prayer he again surveyed the crowd and said, still with a firm voice: "I am now going to read some verses which are intended to indicate my feelings at the moment of leaving this world. If set to music they may be rendered more effective. The idea is that v child is babbling to his ma, and his pa. I wrote it this morning about 10 o'clock. He then commenced to chant these verses in a sad, doleful style: "I am going to the Lordv, lam so glad. I am so glad I am going to the Lordy. I am so glad, I am going to the Lordy. Glory hallelujah. Glory hallelujah. I am going to the Lordy." Here his feelings overcame him and he leaned his head on the shoulder of Dr. Hicks and cobbed pitifully: "I wonder what I will do when I get to the Lordy? Igueas I will wtep no more. When I get to the Lordy. Glory hallelujah. " Here there was another interruption caused by the sobs and emotions which he was un able to repress. He wept bitterly and then with quivering lip 3 and mournful tones he went on tofinisb his ditty: "I am going to the Lordy. I love the Lordy with all my soul, Glory hallelujah, And that is the reason I am going to the Lordy. Glory hallelujah, Glory halleluiah, I am going to the Lordy — " Here Guiteau's voice fai'ed, and he bowed his head and broke into sob 3, but he rallied a little, and went on with his chant "l savtd my party and my lr.nd, Glory hallelujah! But they have murdered nw for it, And that is the reason I am _#«-i» to the Lord, Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujih! I wonder what I will see, When I get to the Lordy. I expect to see most splendid things, beyond all earthly conception, When lam with the Lordy, Glory hallelujah!" Raising his voice to tbe Ugbest pitch that he could command, "G^ory hallelujah! "I am with the Lord!" Thi6 closed the chant, and then Rev. Mr. Hicks gave Guiteau his final benediction and farewell, saying: » God, the father, be with you, and be with thee and give thee peace for ever." The attendant then pinioned bis legs and carefully adjusted the noose about his neck. Mr. Strong placed the black cap over his 1 ttad and, at he did so Guiteau called out, "Glory, glory, glory." Instantly tLe drop was sprung. The •■".... '> - ..-. ". . • BODT TURNED TARTLY . ABOUND, . . but . there was not the slightest perceptible motion of the limbs. When the drop fell a yell was sent up by some persons inside the jail. This was re-echoed outside by 1,000 or more people who hurrahed lustily. There was a general onslaught by the populace upon the jail • doors. The officers were unable to withstand it, and hundreds of people crowded into the office. , : • v ... . For at least forty seconds after the drop fell the body hung motionless. Then there .was a slight motion of shoulders and legs, due to muscular contraction. Three minutes after the droD fell the body was lowered to be ex amined by the physicians. . There ■ '"as a . de cided action of the heart for fully ■ fourteen minutes, and the pulse flattered two minutes longer. -. ■• ?- : When the body had hung with its feet just touching the ground over half ar hour it was lowered into the coffin, which was wait ing for it under the scaffold. ! . The physicians decided the neck had been broken. When the body was lowered the black cap was removed and his face exposed. . The features were pal Id and composed. About the mouth there was considerable moisture. Af ter the body had been arranged in the coffin Warden Crocker * ascended the steps :of the scaffold . and addressing the crowd ' said, "Those who desire can now TIBW THB BODT." Then the crowd of spectators were formed in line, passing between the scaffold and wall of the jail and viewed the remains. Some jail officers, two or three physicians, and Dr. Hicks stood about the coMu. John W. Guiteau joined their company and fanned his dead brother's face to keep away the flier. John W. Guiteau did not go on the scaffold but stood during the scene just within the line of the officers at the bottom of tbe step. When liberty was given to tbr crowd to view the body the scaffold was at once filled with people, who curiously ex amined every joint and bolt. At 1:40 p. m. the lid of the coffin was put in place and the body borne to the jail chape], where the physicians who were to make the autopsy were assembled, After the body was taken to the chapel, ar rangements were made to let Mrs. Scoville new it. Mrs. Scoville, after waiting upon the out side of the jail until after the execution, de cided not to view the remains this afternoon, and about 2 o'clock returned to the sity. Quiteau, just before the trap was sprung, dropped a piece of paper from his hand. This paper was given him by Warden Crocker to be dropped as a signal when he was ready. John w. Guiteau said to a reporter just after the execution that he was glad it was over. "What will be done with the remains?' asked the reporter. "Wewill bury him herein the jail where he' will be safe," said Mr. Guiteau. "He will not be taken out of the jail." The ?pot indicated by the warden as Gui teau's burial place ii> in the same court as tb9 gallows end four yards from it. JOHN IS SATISFIES. Just before noun John W. Guitean said to a representative of the Associated Press that he felt cheerlul so far as his brother was con cerned, b6lieving it to be far better for him to die than lire. He said no one felt keener anguish than he himself that the crime had beed commit ted, which plunged the nation into grief. He believed, however, that his brother would show himseli to be a brave man, and from bis own standpoint would vindicate his idea of patriotism. "His life is a wreck and worth lees," said John, "and I thin!: this is the must tilling end to a checkered and ias-uie career." He believed Ills brother would die happy, and owing to his demented condition would be forgiven in the next world. He thought his brother would be happier in death than in life under the circumstances, and if he (John) con Id he would not ask to have him reprieved. John was in tbe same mood after the execu tion. "I believe he was Insane, I predicted just what would happen," said he, "that he would go bravely to the gallows. The trial wag a farce, and to-day an insane man was executed. Whether ineane before God, I do not know, still I believe if he was to be tried again he would be convicted. It was not a question for a jury." At 3:15 the military guard on duty at the jail ever since the second of July inarchad away. They were loudly cheered as they left After her ineffectual attempt to get into the jail Mrs. Sceville returned to the city and went to her lodging place. It was understood at tbe jail this afternoon that she will not come until to-morrow, when she will be per mitted to view the remains of her brother. Very foou after the hanging Dr. Hicks and John W. Guiteau made a thorough examina tion of the cells occupied by Guiteau. Dr. Hicks took poseeeion of the books and other effects of the deceased. A great many of those at the f jail visited the cells to see the place where Guiteau spent his last days. There was a disposition on the part of some present to get mementoes of the occasion at any cost. The jail officers took the rope from the gallows and secreted it as soon as the noose was removed from the dead man's neck. Dr. Hicks, when asked about it, said he didn't want to say where the body would be interred. The funeral, such as it will be, will take place to-morrow and will be as private as possible. The Autopsy. The physicians who performed the autopsy were Drs. D. L. Lamb. J. F. Hartigan and 8- T. Sawyer. In addition to these physicians there were present Drs. Bliss and son, Drs. Noble, Young, Robert Reyburn, A.E.Mac- Donald, Johnson, Elliott, A. H. Hinckmac, P. J. Murphy. Chas. H. Nichols, Surgeon General Barnes, of the army. Surgeon General Waters, of the navy, Drs. W. A. Gedding, A. H. Wilmer acd Clarke Patterson, of St. Eliza beth asylum; Dr. D. C. Patterson, coroner of the District; C. A. Kleinschmidt, J. R. Haynes and Drs. Birdsall and Parish. Jno. W. Guiteau and Rev. Mr. Hicks were present for a short time but left the jail be fore the conclusion of the autopsy and re turned to the city about 3 o'clock. A close examination of the body showed that Guiteau's neck was broken and that the rope had cut deep into the flesh of the neck. The reporter of the Associated Press was the only newspaper man admitted to the chapel where the body was beiug dissected. The chapel is a spacious apartment contain ing only a few benches and tables. The coffin was placed upon a bench and tbe body removed and after having been stripped was laid upon the table. Scales and other ap pliances for determining the weight and other phenomena of different parts of the body were placed about on tables. The operations of the three surgeons engaged in the autopsy were watched wflh the greatest interest by the other medical genthmen who crowded about tae table. After examination of the eyes the brain was removed and inspected. Dr. A. B. Loring found the leffc eye completely sufiused with blood, and both eyes so indistinct that no opinion cculd be formed of their condition or expression. Then the body was cut open and a thorough and complete examination made with a view of determining pyschological facts that could be of interest in connection with the caee. The brain was found to be in its normal condition and weighed forty-nine ounces. The heart weighed a little over nine ounces and was in a healthy condition, as well as was all the other internal organs. Dr. Mac- Williams, the first person to leave the room where the autopsy was held, eaid there was nothing so far as he could see about the brain that was abnormal. Its weight, according to Dr. Mac Williams, was forty-nine and a half ounces. The gen eral viscera, he said were in perfect condition. At 3:15 the autopsy was adjouned until this evening, when tUa brain will be taken to the medical museum on Tenth street, where a more minute and critical examination is to be | mad*. The physicians wtre disinclined to go J^jkp* J^^ks^ftc .^lak«<.- jt into details in regard to the results thus far reached. Dr. Hartigan left the jail, soon after 4 o clock, taking with him the brain. Dr. Godding, who has maintained that he was insane, said when aeked what result the autopsy developed, "I have nothiDg to say." Another physician remarked, "We are ALL KNOW NOTHINGS." A bystander replied, "8o the uneducated non-expert public thought at the time of the other autopsy." All the Dhyaiciana agreed that there were lymphs» in the brain and hardsning of the dura mater. None of them care to express a positive opinion until after the examination bhall be completed. Dr. Hartigan, who had the custody of the brain, took it at 4.80 to the army medical museum where, in a room set apart for pho tographic purposes, a number of surgeons and physicians had assembled to continue tbe autopsy. Among those present were Drs. Nichols and McDonald, New York, and Drs. Lamb, Lorieg, Powers, Reyburn, Elliot and Godding, of Washing ton. The direction of the operations was by unanimous consent given to Dr. Lamb. It had been the intention of the sur geons to begia by making a plaster cast of the braia with a view to permanent preserva tion in that form of its configuration and ex ternal characteristics, but the organ was found to be so soft and yielding as to render this impracticable. A resort therefore was bad to On account of the lateness of the hour and dull and overcast sky, the preparations were necessarily hindered, but after placiHg the brain in a mass of curled hair such as that need in upholstering and disposing of it in the form which it had during life, a number of negatives were taken of it from various points of view, with more or less successful results. The ex amination of the brain was then resumed. This examination, which will include careful microscopical study of the tissues and struc tural characteristics of the organ, will cer tainly net be finished before to-morrow after noon and may occupy several days. The sur geons and physicians who are participating in the autopsy have pledged themselves not t« make public in the meantime any individ dual conclusions at which they may arrive, in order that the official report when made may have full weight and value aa representing the conclusion of all the examining physicians. BEBCLTB. The results of the autopsy, so far as they can be learned tonight from the surgeons present, may be stated as follows: After surveying the body externally, the surgeons proceeded to lay open the brain cavity and thorax, and to examlue the organs tv- rein contained. The brain was found to weigh forty-nine and one-half ounces, which is a little more than the weight of the average human brain. It was well formed and presented no external evidence of disease of leison. The 1 ungs and heart were in their normal condition, but there was a slight ruffling of the aorta in the vicinity of the heart. The neck was not dislocated or fractured, as the surgeons at first supposed, but there wae a rupture of the sterno-cleido mastoid ror.c-cle on both sides as well as of the thvro-hyoid membrane. It follows, therefore, that death resulted from suffocation and not from dislocation of the spinal vertebra. A partial examination was mads of the abdom inal viscera, but it had not been completed at the time the autopsy was suspended. The spleen was found to be considerably enlarged, its weight being fifteen ounces, or more than twice that of the normal spleen. Other abdominal organs, as far as they were examined, presented no unusual features. The report of the surgeons making the au topsy will probably not be ready for publica tion before Wednesday next.

In addition to tho natural attraction of the p<trk, tbe celebrated Muldoon- Whistler combination will give an exhibition of thuir skill in manly arts that in ancient time* drew tbe attention and presence of the then civilized portion of the world. This exhibition will be given in the grand arena of the park, which is surrounded by a natural amphitheatre capable of affording a good point of view to twenty thous and persons. These exhibitions will consist of wrestling, boxing, heavy weight practice, exhibitions upon the turning bars, foot racing, etc., etc. The Great Western band will furnish the music for the occasion and every arrangement has been made for good order ami the pleasure of thoee who attend. The trains run every hour, and you can come and g6 at your pleasure, at trifling expense. Till: COURTS : Probate Court. [Before Judge O'Gorman.J E;tate of Eliza J.
