Washington, July 6.
Gen. Hancock repaired to the arsenal at
noon to-day, and delivered the death war
rants of Payne, Harold, Mrs. Surratt and
Atzerott, to Gen. Hartrauft, who is in
charge of the prisoners, when they went
together and visited the condemned, to
inform them of the sentences pronounced
and the time tixed for the execution. Payne
was the first to whom the intelligence was
communicated. It did not seem to take him
by surprise, as he doubtless expected no
other, and behaved himself accordingly.
T'ie others were more or less affected. Mrs.
Surratt particularly sank under the dread
announcement, an' pleaded four days addi
tional time to prepare herself for death. All
the prisoners will be attended by clergymen
of their own designation. A s;affold has
been erected in the south yard of the old
penitentiary building, which is inclosed by
a high brick wall. The coffins and burial

witness the scene.

diate effect.
Washington, July 7.
All condemned conspirators sentenced to v
be hanged to-day, were executed. On the I
petition of Mary Surratt, through her coun- I
;el, Aiken and Clamett, Judge Wilder, of c
the Supreme Court of this district, directed c
,n issue of a writ of habeas corpus to General t
Hancock, commanding him to produce in
Court, at ten o'clock this morning, the body
of Mary E. Surratt, with the cause and day
of detention. The writ was served on Gen.
Hancock at eight o'clock this morning, by
U. S. Marshal Gooding. He immediately
consulted with the Attorney-General and the
Secretary of War. At 10:30, the General
had not obeyed the writ. This fact was.
brought to the notice of the Court by her
counsel, but the Judge said he had no power
to enforce the writ. To-day guards were
placed all around the Arsenal grounds to
prevent intrusion of persons to the scene of
execution-none being admitted excepting
those previously supplied with tickets by
Gen. Hancock. The relatives of Mrs. Surratt
and Harold spent several hours with them
during the forenoon. They were attended
by their spiritual advisers, as were also
Payne and Atzerott. A few minutes after one
o'clock the outer prison door was opened.
Mrs. Surratt was supported on her way to
the gallows by two military officers; next

on the platform, in the following order:
Mrs. Surratt, Payne, Harold and Atzerott.
Officers intrusted with the execution, and
ministers, occupied intermediate positions.
Gen. Hartrauft, who had been from the
commencement in charge of the prisoners,
came forward and read the order of the War

the latter his sincere thanks to General G
Hartrauft and the officers and soldiers who g,
had charge of him, for their personal kind- C,

and given no unpleasant look or gesture, but C,
seemed to compassionate his misfortune. A
The minister then uttered a brief prvyer, pq
asking for Payne's forgiveness of all sins, it
and a passage out of this world into the joys b.
of Heaven. The minister who attended on it
Harold also returned thanks for kind treat- l:i

that God would receive his soul. Harold o
was affected to tears. The minister who a
attended Atzerott also returned thanks to
Gen. Hartrauft and other officers, for their b
kind attention, and then invoked the mercy *
of God on the prisoners condemned. They h
were required to rise from their seats, when,
the chairs being removed,'they were all'on g
the drops; their hands were fastened behind
them, and legs `bandaged below and- above ,
the knees, while caps were placed over their
heads. Atzerott, while being prepaked for
exeeution, exclaimed: "Gentlemed, fare
well! Take care! Good bye, gentlemen,
now before me." One of the clergymen

of the platform on which they bad been
standing suddenly fell. The culprits were
e hanging several feet from the ground. Mrs.
e Surratt and Payne scarcely moved a muscle.
Atserott exhibited some twitching; but
e Harold showed more nervous sensibility
than any of the others. The bodies hung
until life was extinct. Afterwards they were
- given over for burial, rough cofins having
re already been provided forthat purpose. The
arrangements for the execution were perfect.
Gen. Hancock was present throughout the
proceedings. It is said that Payne last night
as made a statement in behalf of Mrs. Surratt,

pit $54, in a day. There are two good bars
and plenty of water. The town is thriving.
It contains about forty houses, and a brew
