CLARENCE H. SEWARD NOT WOUNDED. ?
In the morning paiiers yesterday Mr. Clarence H J
Si'ward, nephew of the Secretary of State, wan reported I
to be among those Injured by the assassins. It turns out I
that be was not lu Washington at the time at all, and M
that Major William Seward Is the one who waa muant. fjjj
Mr. Clarence U. Seward had Just returned from Washing- B
ton to this city, whirs the horrible nuns was learned by
hiru for ike lirat lime. Ho returued immediately lo the
national capital by the eleven oYlock morning train.
LETTER FROM FREDERICK W. BEWARD.
^Probably the last letter written by Mr. Frederick W.
Seward was received this afternoon by Mr. C?or?-e Francis
Train. Mr. Seward write* under date of Washington,
April 14:?
I thank you sincerely for the k'nd expression of sympathy
iciiiained iuyour letter of yesterday. My father's
condition, we think, Is now gradually Improving from
duy to day, though he still sutlers much pain.
THE CITY IN MOURNING.
The intense feeling of grief among the people at the
untimely dcml.se of the President wiu amply reflected in
the robes of death which darkened every thoroughfare of
this city yesterday. The spectacle prosented was worth
a thousand homilies on affliction and death. New York,
v\ blch had countless banners waving 1b the sunlight of
Hood Friday?whose citizens were holding a peorlt?8
i aruival over the trophies which signalled the restoration
of peace and Union?cast off these signals of triumph and
prt'i>ured to become a city of mourning.
Tnc transition was as sudden aa the assassination which
called it forth. Within twenty four nours the metropolis,
renowned lor its eternal converse, fashion and gaiety, its la
army of eunigns and its general panorama of cosmopoli-l
tan life, seemed like a vast cemetery which helda mill on
of i ullbe.Ters.
One oi the principal features of the display was theH
rapidity with which It appearod. There was no precou- jJ
e.erted ui tion among the community ; eaeh citizen felt, by Q
j UBiinct, niH duty to tno occasion, ana mo crapo, same ,
clnih und other materials of mourning, went up as If b> I
magic, ami was men suspended in foktoons from the
stores and windows of every bou&o. :
Nover has a city preaented more striking evidence of its
Borrow. The silent nundr ds ot thou*undo who marched,
w.tli dowurn t hea.Uaud *ad countouanCH through th
i-t recta seemed apparently content that, the black and
omnipresent drapery should rnvesl tboir griof. Tkoy S
walked ihioi^h thu city with the mien of men who j
wander through a grave; ard, and uiauy <n the va^t multitudes
searched \alnly tor dlasentor* from the general
i^rlef, or those who nil (ht poslhly speak, flippan'Iv of j
the murder of tl.eir chi?itain, in order to vent a wnirl ;
wind of wrath which a disrespectful or treasonable ex- t
pre-sion might create. "

Th.) mournful spectacle which o r leading street |
erUi'.dted cannot bo fully described. Its noble m
bui.illngs, from the Battery to Mtidlson Equate. 9
[were sbrow tied In ercpe. The citizens seemed 4
to vie with each other in the sombre character of 9
the ornaruuit.it.on. (Sulile festoons were tuspeuded Iron. 1
otoro to toof, and every wind ?w wore chain* of crape, a
RHottes of b!ack, with portraits of the late Pres dent en J
closed In wreaths of mourning, wore ublqultoun. Tin a
character of the decorutions wus essentially almi'ur, fot J
the tokens of death admit of little fancy and art. Henc- H
the general spectacle was gloomy, monotonous at?'U
painful. There was nothing to relieve tt. Kvon the hky,H
charged with a ruin storm, looked as black as the tnortu- M
ary exhibition it canopied. ln*ovuial Instances suitable M

With some the desire for vengeance was uppermost; B
ufliera viewed iho deplorable event w.th the calmness B
of Intenn grief, and all seem-d desirous that time should B
roll on with unusual speed to lift them out of the po- |l
rtod rife with the notes of (hue extraordinary obss- B
quios. Even Kastertidu, when the joys of Chil-lmas are
duplicated, w is iorgotten. The Greeks saluted each B
other on one Easter morn with the sentence, "Byron's B
dead," Instead of "Ohrist Is rlson;" and our B
community yesterday, when laboring under the shook B
which the niurlor created, Imitated their example, and
hailed each other with the anno'incemeut, "1 TBBldBSl m
Lincoln is dead!'1 Then eamo an outburst of In'UgnnntB
lamentation. The people, like tho Roman populace B
around the corpse of Cmsar, wandered to and l'ro far B
orators to enlighten them on the death of their B
Chief Magistrate, and deliver ^anegyiica to hi* memory. B
The merciful nature of Mr. LlMwl, his leniency, hibH
afTuble nature, and his la.st great a t, In which h volun- B
tarlly parted with unnecessary military power, by abol- B
^Uing, at one foil pwoop, the burthensoms mactilncry H
of provost miirshalshlp In all tha loyal states, and its M
attendant Incubus, the draft, wero recalled to re
meinbranco, like the boon of Cse-'ar after his II
iissasslnatlou; and the scenes which followed B
showed "be'wan loved of tho distracted multitude.'' Q
But there were men in every courourso who woro practi- Hj
cul In the midst of their sorrow, and who looked beyond H
Mie narrow limits or death, and contemplated tbe iinme- B
dmto inmMm of the republic. These counselled their H
hearers e^ ery .\ li-re to transfer the.r support from the M
dead chii-fiuiu to the living President, whom the conatt- B
ItUtloa ordained to be Iris MMMMW, and the sentiment |J
elicited unreserved approval. B
THE EXCITEMENT IN WALL STREET IKBl
AT THE MERCHANTS' EXCHANGE. |
From an ciuly hour tlie greatest excitement prevailed I
in Wall street, and the national eulamity was on the lips B
of every person, youog and old; on every corner could g
be seen groups of people discussing the unparalleled mis- D
frrtuno whl'-h tho country bad sustained iu the loe&of Its H
< hiof Magistrate, Abraham Lincoln. H
The Sub Treasury was cloned from about noon Nogj
business was transacted In the early part of tbe day nzcopt
the payment of drafts. The doom and windows!
v-ere draped in mourninjr, as was alwo a portrait of thef]
luie President In the Treasurer's room. In tbe Custom L
HouM business was entirely suspended, and tbe had und fg
mournful looks of the employes throughout the building I
betokened the mMortuno which has befallen thesountry M
Hiirlness was completely suspended In tbe street, and thoH
fronts of the principal buildings were covered w<iiL
mourning. Tbe oxi itemont could not have Ik en greater E
uudcr any circumstances. Tho hanging oi' Jet!'. Davis I
and all the leu.lers of tbe rebellion was discussed on every B
tide. "What I" said rumo people, "shall Abraham Lin-1
coin bo murdered and such a wrctcb as Davis be allowed ?
to eec^ie!" "Never, never!" said a hundred volce?B
v.ithln hearing. As regards tbe feellug thai oxUiodp
amount the people iu relation to the leaders 01 the#'
rebellion, there was but one opinion, and thai was "show |r
them no leniency, but'hang them all." I

Genoral O'ltrnrin sa:d-~-Tto night before my departure
from Washington It was ray privilege to witness
the ilium nation of which you have heard, whf< h ex
preaaed the.joy of this great nation as It was never ex
(ifHfced before, In view of tho grout victories
that had crowded our arms; and tnen came this
terr.ble contrast in tho news which rer.chcd in" upon
arriving in thin city. It seenui us though the rebellion
by thin last act of frightful madness. at the moment
wh u the peple were rejoi* Ing At having reached the
haven of pcace at last, bad determined that the President
of ihe republic should fco to Join the army of th? dead
who have laid down tin Ir lives on tho hatile Held. (Applause.)
lint, fellow citizens, they have slain the noblest
and most generous spirit that over put down a rebellionL
on tills earth. (Applause.) It may be almost Impious tog
say It; but It does seem to me that his death almost
parallels that of the S-on of Ood, who cried out'"Father,
jforgive U.em, for they know not what they do." Hut lu
taking auay that lif they have left tho iron hand of tho
pt-oplo to full upon them. (Great u|^ilauye.) Peac-,
forgivenesa and mercy arc the attributes of this government,
b t Justice aud Judgment with Inexorable
troad follow behind, aud when they have Main love
w hen they have despised mercy, when they have rejected
those ihat would be their best friends, then coin-*
luMlce with hoodwinked eyi s and the sword. (Applause.)
From every gaping wound of our dead chief?tioui <ver>
wound of your dying Secretary of State and hla ?on Hit
the voice go up to this people to see to It that our house
is swept and gnmtshed. I will say one thing more. For
mere revenge I would do nothing. Tliia nation la too
great to look for mere reveuge, but for the security of
the future I would do everything. (Applause.) Our
honored dead, if they could look down upon this seine,
would say to yoa, "we have committed to you tho high
and holy charge that we ahull not have" lived m vain." I
do not believe It Is In the character of the
Am ricau people to become assassins, I ke the people
of France and Italy. (Applause, and crea of "Never.")
IdonotbelievethatOencralI.ee and bis officers could
have sanctioned this act: but If they do?oh! If they do?
let them feel the red lightnings of the people's vengeance.
(Applause.) I will not detain you, fellow citizens.
(Cries of "Go on?goon.'') My heart Is too full
I had an Interview only y tterday with oue member of
the Cabinet, aud almost the last words he said to me
were: ? '1 love our President more and more every day 1
see him; there is no point of rebellion that he does uot
understand, aud which he does not 6eem to have consld
red with all the eurn-stness of hi* apirit; I believe he
ho? thought more deeply than any other Americau citi
*en upon the subject of this war " But he is gone from
among us; but though dead he Is your President and
mine to-day. (Applause.)

said that tho men who hid starved our prisoners should
