Long r.p.ANcii, N. J., Sept. 90.?The antopara no
the Pie-.pient's body lasted about three und a half
hours. One of the gentlemen ?arenan? makes the
following statement in regard to it:
The ball was not found until the various parts of
the ubdouuju were explored and cut asunder. The
ball in its course broke the eleventh rib, fractured
the spinal column, bal did not touch the spinal cord.
It lodged two and a half or three inches directly
to tho left of tho spinai column in
tbe mesentery. Tbe channel which has hitherto been
fu"?u'sed to be the track of the ball proved to be a
nus cavity formed by the burrowing of the pus
The eatbct'T usc? by the surgeons is believed by
niy informant to have bent upon itself, deceiving
the surgeons in regard to tho real depth of the
Wound. There was a large abscess between the
liver ami the gall duct, which accorditi? to
the same authority was met asta tic.
Taieahaeeea wan mot connected with the traekof
I nd or tho channel formed by burmwng.
On each of tbe kidneys was a small abscess. The
bun;*, especially tbe light one, were hadl.i
? d. A large amount of pus Unwed
freely from the bronchial tubes, while by
cutting into the tubos ? considerable amount
of pus was discovered in little luctustatic aba
there was purulent infiltration of both lungs. This
pus was healthy. There wer?? no abscesses in the
liver itali, luit those in the kidneys wen? nu?

The authority from which this information is

Dr. BlUM on the other baud says that while, there
were septic conditions then? wats no py.ernia.

went into tlie Doctor's room. I found Dr. Bliatl
lasts, and asked him what was to bo given during |
the night. He answered : 'I think I hail better
fix up a list, aud will brim? it in to you pretty
soon.' I then went hack into the surgeon's room,
and had som?. little conversation with Mrs. Oarfield,
she ft it of the Prssldeof? hand ami laid her band I
on his forehead, and said, ' lie seems to be in a
good condition.' and passed out of the
room. I immediately felt bis bands, feet
and knees. I thought that his knees
seemed a little cool and got a flannel cloth, heated
it at the lire and laid it over his limbs. I also
boated another elotta and laid it over his rirrht band,
and then sai .Own In a otaair beside tai? bed. I wasl
hardly seated when Dr. Boyntoa came in ami fell S

he doing Well?' 'Yes' he answered and passed
ont, He was not in the room moro than two min?
" Shortly after this the President BWOko. As he
turned his head on awakening I arose and took
hold of his hand, I was on the left hand side of the
bed SS he lay, I remarked, 'You have had a nice
comfortable Bleep,'
"He then said, 'Oh, Swaim, this terrible pain,'
placing his right hand on his hreast, about over the
region of die heart. I asked him if I could do an\ -
thing fur him. He said,'Sonn? water.' I went to
the Otbet side of the room and poured about an
onnce and a half of Poland water lato a glees and
gave it lo him to drink. He ton!; the glass in his hand,
I raising his head a?: usual, and drank the water \ cry
naturally. I then handed the glen to the colored
man Daniel, who came in during the Urns I wasl

wiped his forehead, Bl he usually perspired OBI
awaking. Be then said. Oh, Swaim, this terribli

" I then saw him looking at Ufl with ;' al SI lug Bl

pain. Reoeiring no answer, I repeated the question. I
with like result. I then concluded th.it he wasl
either dying or was having a severe epasm snd I
called to Daniel, who was at the door, to tell Dr.I

Dr, Boyntou gives the following foil account
nl I lie death scene :
.lot before lOo'elook as the cottage waai '
';;, \> . .t up to th? President's room and upon I? ? 111 ,?
the President's pulse noticed it was weaker, With?
outswsksning the President be celled tbeatteo
tion of General Swaim to the fact, and then, thil ! -
ingschsnge was Impending, he areni overtotbe
hotel tiseiil some dispatch. He wasalmoal Innv
diately summoned. Upon going over in haste am!
entering the room he saw clearly that the Prosrai nl
wss dying, M??st of the family had arrived in the
loom, all the surgeons were found in time except
Dr. Hamilton? Scarcely ? word wasspoken by snj
one, as it was char to all at a glance
that the President ?as dying. As those
Ululimi,ed came in they silently took theii
place? about the bed. Colonel Rookwell stood at
tin- te? ni, General Swaim Bret to the. led, next Vis
darti? Id, win. gently held her hand on the Presi?
iteat'sface and breast? Next sto?.?! Mr. W. Rook?
well. Dr. Boyuton stood to the right of the Presi?
dent's head, next Dr. Agnew, and next to him Dr.
Misa Private Secretar? Brown stood a little in tbsl
real ami to the left of Mrs. (Jarli.id. " Dan," tie J
colored man, waa a little way from (he fool of th I
bed, Mia* MoUis Qariield was near the door.
All stood silently in these positions watching I he I
dying man. Once or twice there ware low whisper? I
among th o surgeons Dr. Agnew held the pulse, I
and Di. Boyuton listened lor the hear!, hut could
bear no souud. The only treatment attempted ?va?.
to give a hypodermic injection to allay pain. The
??. snicei lay perfectly etili aftei be (irsi called f<u
Qeneral Swaim and told him of the pain over !>N
heai?. Beabnply gasped slowly and at Intervals,!
ami thna watohed he passed quietly away in about |
twenty mlnntea ??? ? muscle moved except In the
gasping, end then? was no Quiver or expression toi
tell of pain. At death, the eyes rested half closed,
as if in palliai sleep. Mrs. Oarfield was strongly al I
footed, but asid nothing, snd did noi break down.
siici death she loft the room quietly, but returned
in about half an hour and eat by the bed, scarcely
?peaking until about 2 o'clock. At that hour Dr,
Boyuton urged her tO retire, which she did.
One present In the room at the linn- ol the death
says .Mis. Qarflold bore herself with surprising forti
(ade, Her Christian courage did not forsake her
for a moment. She remained s short time after
ih.; death was Sppareul to all, then withdrew
quieti) to her own room, Miaa MoUie Oarfield waa
on roome from the momonl of tbe sudden Bnmmon.
U? go to her father*? bedaide, and gave full reni to
her grief lu spite of every effort st self-control. T<
moal th< re, si to all outside, the sodden and anfore*
peen new? came mors as a bewildering shook than
as an event which could be measured ox realised,
11?nils after men walked and tallied of it us of a
mailer scarcely tangible,
Secretary Windoro, Secretary Kirkwood and
?Osimasi? ?-ii. ?.??.?I .lame., bad jus! returned to tin m
,,?,, and retired. They apent the time after theii
arrlvsl st the Francklyn Cottage In discussing the
preparations for the obsequies and kindred affairs,
but took no formal action sxoept In regard to tele?
graphing the \ oe-Presldsnt. Secretary Wlndom
-aid thai he bad been trying to convince himself,
and had almost BUCOeodod, that there was stilla
Ohanes for recovery, when lie wa? suddenly r?
qaeated by Mr. Jsmeson t<> open his door and the
ptartiing annouuosmenl was mads that the Presi?
dent was dead.
"i bad bees dsptaaued aU day," said Postala tez
? ?cm tai James, " and could not gai lid of the idea
that tin?, end was near, yet I think it ?hooked ua all
more than it would have done had death resulted
.(..m after the ahooting.''
"I was in he.l," said Secretary Kirkwood, "and
:!i<- BUB niions came like S thunder clap out of the
cleat sky. I have had little hope of hid recovery fur
esvara] days, bat this was a Burpriso,
?? ? holier? ht was reedy Ces death,'' mid Mr.
[jsaaBSj " uw u,i^ was better nieparod."
" Yes," added Secretary Windom, " he was not
afraid of it. He has discussed the matter during tbe
last two or three days with his attendants, and his
words have shown that he was considering the sad
probability very calmly. Yos, lie was ready on the
very day he was shot, when he expected to die. He
said to Mrs. Windoro : ' That is all right, all right.' "
No w?>rds can describe the grief which the tone ami
BUbduad manner of the speakers betrayed. Bandi
were clasped at parting as if in this common sorrow
they fain would sustain each other.
The suddenness with which the news of tie deal!
came can hardly be realized hy one not at Biberon
The cottagi? was closed at 10 o'clock for the night
The two doorkeepers, Kicker and Atehison, had
strolled down to the he ich for a short walk he fore

Secretary Hrown. who told them that the Pr?sident

Cabinet, Dr. Boynton was talking in tin? hotel
orfico St the time. He hastily ran toward the cot?
tage, and in a moment or two returned and an?
nounced that the President was rapidly sinking
and again he returned to the death chamber. At

up and dressed in two or three minutes, A carriage
was hastily dispatched for the other member? of
the Cabinet at the West Km!, hut they did not ?it
