TRIAL OF GUITEAU. Story of the Assassination, The DlslricUUoriiey'sOiienliif,' Address. SECRETARY BLAINE AS A WITNtSS, UIS ACCOUNT OF TUB GREAT CRIME. Washington, Kov. 17th, 1831. The Criminal Court room, where the It iul of Charles J. Guiteau for the mur derof l'resident Garfield is in progress, commenced to fill witb spectators about half pait nine o'clock this morning from the east door. There were muny ladies among tho spectators today. By 9:45 o'clock the scuts inside the bar were well filled, and when tho west door was opened, within a few minutes the seats and space outside woro a solid mass of humanity. Ala tew minutes to 10 o'clock tho twelve jurors marched up in procession Irotn tbo National hotel. Hulling on tho stops a pbologrttphor took a pic ture of litem. They aro quartered on tbo third floor, on tbo oast side of the hotel, whero the rooms, for their ac commodation, aro connected. Here, shut out from the outsido world and guarded by Builifls A. B Searlos, T. F. Shryock and Geo. G. Curtis, when not in Court, they take their meals at a common table and spend their time as best they can. J ust betore IU o clock Mr. Davidgo, wilb Judgo Portor and Judge Smith, were in their places, and Mr. Itcoville, Mr. Kohinson and Mr. J. W, Guiteau appeared soon altcrwatds. Mrs. Scovillo was also present, accom panied by bor litllo daughter, seven or eight years old. THE COURT WAS CALLED TO ORDER at ten minutes past ton, and, as usual, llio lormalilios ol calling tbe jury roll otcupiedsome minutes, during which the spectators, who wore crowded in ovory quarter of tho court house, were composing themselves for a long ses sion. Guitoati was then brought in clinging tightly to a bundlo of news papers which ho had brought with bim from thojnil. When the jury roll wits completed all tbe jurors not on tlijs panel wero discharged till to mor row morning. ANOTHER EXCITING SCENE IN COURT. Mr. Scovillo, rising, said bo wished to say a few words in relation to an occurrence on tho first day betwoen himself and his associate. 11 o wanted to cay tbat in fact thoro bad been no disagreement butween them, and since conlerring together, there lind been no lack of harmony. This statement was followed by a scene. Guiteau aroso and staid : "II your honor jileuse, 1 object to Mr. Kobitison sorvingon tho cuso. I want him out of ibo case." "I want you to understand dintinct ly," said Judgo Cox, "that your lubors as counsel in this caso (as you claim to be your own counsel) will bo confined strictly to consultation with your coun sel. lou will not bo beard by tbo court, and if you persist in theso at tempts you will bo removed Irom tbo court by tbe olllcors Guiteau, who had sat down, tried to struggle Io bis led, but was held back by the oflicors. Ho then hnwlml Irom his chair, beating tho table with his fist, "I would like to bo beard in do lenco of my case." "You will havo an opportunity to bo beard, perhaps," suid tho court, "at tho closo of Ibo case. Counsel has been assigned to you." "But without my consent," said tho prisoner. ' I'll bavo this thing go out 10 tho country and make a noise about it. The country is bigger than this court. ' He sat in silenco for a moment, and then raising bis voico again said: "1 want to say there is not ono word of truth in that roiri special Irom Chi cago. It is an absolute lie fro n begin ning to end." Then he again muttered something about going before tho coun try and making a noiso. Then ho spoke aloud and vory emphatically as follows: ''I wouldn't trust my csso to tho best lawyer In tbe country. Ono or two blunderbusses might compro mine my whole aeience. Mr. Scoville here expostulated quiet ly with tbe assassin, but to no avail. He broke out immoilially, "ll Mr Robinson had proper rospect for him self he would get on" the caso. Thai's my opinion about him." Ho remained silent then for several minutes, thon suddenly exclaimed: "If your honor pleaso, 1 am here in the capacity of an agent ol tbe Deity, and 1 am going to assort my rights in that capacity. 1 don't propose to come here on my bands and knees. That's the view 1 take of Ihis matter, and the view 1 supposed your honor bad." While these rambling romarks wero being made by Guiteau with long pauses, space was being elenred for District Attorney Coikbill before tho jury. Sucre I a ry (llaine had arrived, accomranted by his two sons Walker and Boltertand Mr. Sovellon A. Brown. Tbey took seats at the District Attor ney's table, behind Judge Porter and xwui. .4.J-J-L .. Htl .. . I r -BV, Mr. Smith, Ncitrthcm sat Mrs. Cork bill and a ludy Iriend. District Attorney Corlthill began bis opening address to the jury at bull past 10 o'clock. Ho stood in a small opon space tho only open spaco in tho court room at ono side of tho witness box. lie delivered his retntiiks with considorublo energy and occasionally roso to eloquence. His address wits as follows: OPENINtl STATEMENT or U. S. DISTRICT ATTORNEY COI1KIII1.L. May it Flense the Court and Gentlemen of the Jury: Tbo prisoner at tho bar slands bo foro you charged with tho murder of James A. Guilield. Under ordinary circumstances lliuro rests a grave and responsible obligation upon every man who ia called upon in the disci, urge, of his duty under tho law to render a de cision upon Which depends tho llio ol a fellow creuluro. And while it is truo that tho offence charged in tbo present caso is no greater in legal giu.'ity and consequences to tho prisoner than if ny his act he had taken llio lilo el Ibe biimblust and most obscure citinon of Ibo Bepuhlic, still it is idle to overlook the lucl that tbo eminent clmtacter of thn man whose life wus taken, his high olliciul position and the startling c Heels of llio commission of llio crime, render tbo caso ono of unusual and unparal leled impoitiinco. It is tho second timo n our history that tho citizen chosen by tho people of tho United Slutcs to discharge the bich and re sponsible duties of President has fallen a victim Io a lawless assassin during tho poriod of his incumbency ol the office. But iu the former cuso wo were just emerging from tbo shadows of a long and bloody war. Tho country bud not been racked bv commotions, and stirred' by civil feuds. Throughout tho length and breadth ot tho land nearly every household mourned tbo loss ol men slain on tho hotly contest- ed battlefields of tho Benublic. It was n danger that thoughtful men had anticipated. It was u calamity Unit patriots bail feared. And when ilcunio, with all us dread consequences, it was, nevertheless, accepted as one of the results of llio then disordered and dis cordant condition of public all'uirs. out wo Dim passed Irom tho arena of tbo war ibo sword hud been beaten into a plowshare, and the spear into a pruning hook; tbo country was uni ted, peuco reigned ut lionfe and abroad. Thero woro no local dissensions ; thero wero no inteslino Btrilcs. Seed timo and harvest had come and gone; Ibo buttlu-fields, redeemed from tho scars and buvoo of their bloody contests, wero blossoming with the fruits of peaceful labor. Suddenly llio sturtling fact was proclaimed throughout tho land and around tho entire world, that tho President of tbo United Stales had lullen a victim to tho as-assin's bullet, in tho Capital ol tho Nution I Murder, under all circumstances, and upon all occasions, is shocking. Tho lilo of which wo know so little, and which wo hold by so fragile a ten ure, is deur to us all, and when it is brought to a close, not in tho usual order and course of nature, but prema turely by violenco, no matter what may bo tho condition of tho person, tho human mind is appalled with ter ror. When a mun holding a position of eminence and power falls a cause less victim to tho murderer's stroke, wo rculir.o still more fully tho awful ncss of tho deed which produces this result. This trial is a rcmurkublo illustra tion of the genius and spirit of our Government. Although our chid ruler win murdered, although Iho effects of that death wero felt in every stulion of life, in every avenuo cf business, ill every department of society, yet tbo prisoner, bis murderer, slands beforo you to day entitled to tho same rights, to tho sumo privileges, panoplied by Iho samo guarantees of the Constitu tion as if bo had killed tho lowliest member of this community. Hud Ibis crime been committed in any olhcr country, or under any other form of government, long ere this tho priso ner would huvo paid tho penally of Its commission by a punishment as swift and as rapid as it would havo been etfectivo. 1 doubt whether, in the world's his tory, thoro can bo Idund another in statico liko tho present. In no ago, under no government, has thero been seen such a situation as we havo hero beforo us. Defended by eminent coun sel, demanding of right tho full benefit of ovcry guarantee of the Constitution, with thu power, exercised carefully, to sco that tho jury selected aro unbiased and free from prejudice; every right is extended to tho prisoner that would bo granted to a criminal charged with tbo most insignificant ollencu. It has been a subject of Iho deepest anxiety and gravest consideration on Iho part of the admirers of our form ot lioverfimont whether tho lunilumcmal principles which underho it, did not contain elements Intul to its pormanon cy and success. Willi tho individual citizen aro its absolute destinies, lor weal or woe. Ihe choico ol liropei rulore, tha enactment of law anil tboir prompt execution, depend upon bis churuetcr ; and no mulior how import ant Iho trust or how grave tbo respon sibility, upon the individual citizen rests it finul decision. Tho simplicity of tho forms under which our tiovernmenl la administered, constitute lor ns ono of its greatest ft truclions, but tho easy accessibility to till, ol thoso charged with its adminis tration, exposes them to many dnn i;ers from Ibo evilly-disposed. Tho President of the United Suites, with out pomp and parade, hut alter the manner of tho humblest citizens, and with no other safeguard than those common to all citizens, leaves the scene of bis olliciul labors lor a brief recreation. In a publio depot, tho prisoner at tho bar; without wariiiu.r, tires al bim with a pistol, inflicting wounds which result in his death. And so, to da)', tho greatest case over presented to a coun of justice is trusted entirely to yon, who huvo beon selected from tbo body ol tbo commu nity to weigh the evuleneo and the law, and then to say, upon your oaths, whether tho mun charged wilh the enmo is guilty. Wbilo this trial will attract unusual attention, while every slogo of its progress will bo watched with Inlet, so interest throughout the entire world, yet lis ttnul decision rests with Ton, i on are to determine, after you shall have beard tho evidence and tho law, whether or not the prisoner at tho bar ia guilty ot tho murder ol James A. Garfield. Tho timo utid the scenes of (hat oc casion woro generally disseminated by the press and aro still Ireah in tho minds of every citizen of tho Ilepnblic, and they will remain with all their sad and gloomy results until tho present generation ahall past Irom among mon. After we are dead they will live In tradition, in history, song and story, REPUBL till tho latest hour of timo. There an enormity about tho immediate oc currences as they will bo detailed to you by tho witnesses for tbo Govern ment that make tbem horriblo to con template. No words can faithfully depict tho scenes of that fatal July morning. It wos bright and bountiful, and as the morning sunlight gilded tho dome of ibo Ctipilol, its rays fell upon a city adorned wilh all the luxuriant loveliness of Summer leaf and flower. Tbo President, wearied with ofllcial cares, was especially joyous at his ap proaching vacation. His olliciul life had been ono of anxiety and labor, but on this occasion bo was bright wilh hope for llio luturo. Ho wus on his wuy to join a convalescent wifo at Long Brunch, und then to visit tho collego from which ho hud graduated, und to join wilh comrades of his Btn dent lilo in a reunion In the hulls ol his nmri mnfer. It was to him an ap proaching season of great pleasure, and bo sturtcd from llio Kxcctttivo Mansion, in company with Iho Secro- tury of State, for iho depot, buoyant una gintl. Early on tho morning of July 2J lust, tho prisoner ut tho br mude preparation for tho murder. Break fasting ut tho Biggs II on ho bo took thoteurlul wcuiion thut ho bad pre viously obtained, and going to tho loot of 17th Street, awuy Irom residences und beyond observation, ho planted a slick in tho soft mud on tho river bunk w hero tho tido had gone out and deliberately pruclised his aim and test ed his weapon. Ho intended Ihero should bo no luiluro in tho accomplish ment of tho crime for which he had been preparing. Bclurnitig, bo took wilb him a small bundle ot papers and went to Iho Bultnnoro and Potomao ruilroad depot ut half-past eight o'clock P. M., un hour beforo tho arrivul of tho President. Alter reaching tho depot be went to the news stand and kit certain papers, wilh a letter ad dressed to Byron Andrews, a corre spondent of tho Chicago Jnter Ocenn, and a pu ikago addressed to Mr. Pres ton, ol llio .Now York Herald, and then went into tho closet, carefully examined his weapon, placed it in Ins pocket, returned, and went oulsido to iho pavement, bud his boots blacked, und then, in order to avoid tho swit'i vengeanco of an outraged community, which ho bus properly feared, engaged a back to take him, us ho said, to llio Congressional burying ground, this point being near tbo Jul I, then entered tho waiting-room to watch for his victim. All unconscious ol this preparation for his murder, President dnrtield, in company with Secretary Blaino, ar rived at the depot, and for a lew mo- metits remained in tho carrmgo in conversation. Wbilo thus occupied the assassin stood gazing at them waiting and wutching lor a favorable opportunity lor the perpetration of tho deed. Tho President and tbo Secretary of Stalo alighlcd from the carringo ; with bia usual courtesy Prosident Garfield besituted a moment on tho atop to acknowledge tho salutation of tho policeman ui Ibo door, and then entered the depot. Ho had gone but a few steps when thoassassin, lurking in tho rear, stepped up behind bun, and pointing bis pistol with deliberate aim, fired at bis back ; tho first shot no doubt doing its lutul work. The President shuddered, staggered and attempted to turn, when another shot was hied and ho tell, bleeding, to the floor, unconscious. Tho horror thut seized every ono may bo imagined, but no words can describo it. Tbo bull Irom tho assassin's pistol bad'ontered Iho middle of tho back of tbe Presi dent, about threo inches to tho right of tho back bono, inflicting a fcai'lul wound, which resulted in his death alter nearly threo months of pain and sunorin g. And horo tho story of this crimo might legally end. Tho unlaw Iul killing of any reasonable crenturo bi- person of sound memory and discre tion, with malice aforethought cither expressed or implied, is murder. Tho motives and intentions of an individual who commits a crimo aro ot necessity known to him 'alone human power can penetrate tho recesses ol tho lieart. No oyo but tho cyo ot God can discern iho motives lor human action. Tho law wisely soya that a mun's motives shall bo judged from his acts, so that it ono kill another slid donly without any provocation tho law implies malice. If a man uses a dendly weapon it is presumed ho intended to commit murder, and in general tbo low presumes a man to intend tho natural consequences of bis act. Woro thoro nothing more against tho accused than the occurrences of Iho morning ol July 21, Iho evidence of his crimo would bo completo and yon would he authorized to conclude that he feloniously, wil fully, and with malieo aforethought did kill and murder James A. Gurliold. But crimo is never natural. Tho mun who attempts to violate tbo luws of liod and society goes contrary to tne ordinary course of human action. Ho is a world to himself. Bo ia against society, against organization and of ncooasity bib action enn never bo measured by Iho rules governing men in tho everyday transactions of life. No criminal over violated tbolnws.who did not leave tho traces of bis crimo distinct and clear when onco discov ered. So in this caso wo can only add to tho enormity of this offense by showing you ils origin, its conception and llio plans adopted lor its execution. Ono year ago tho 11th day of the present month, ho addressed to ilon Win. M. Evnrts, then Secretary of Slate, tho following letter: Nbw Your, Novrmber 11, ln"0. N. H'm. it. KrH.

CtiABLBe UelTBAe. At this timo over a year ago it will bo seen ho had in his mind an applica tion for, and expoctod ol, receiving an otllt'o tinder ihe approaching adminis nation. In pcrsuunco of that hopo tho prisoner camo to this cily on the afternoon of tho fii.li of last .March, no doubt believing that ho would receive at the hands of an administration ho supposed ho had assisted in placing in power, such recognition as, according to bis own opinion ol bis merits, he deserved. Ho was outspoken and earnest in his demands, and in his va rious conversations seemed to leol confident ol snccoss. From bis own letters it is evident that during Octo ber and January he had written Pres ident Garfield, calling attention to his services in tho campaign and soliciting an appointment. On the Hib ot March he addressed a loiter to Ihe Prosident, calling his attention to the fact of his desire to bo appointed to the Paris Consulate. On the'llth of March ho wrolo Secretary Bluino tho following letter Marten II, ll-M. Srmalor Plaint : In October end Jenuary latt I wrte General Gerfleld touching the Aualrlen rotation, end I think be baa Bled my application and ia favora bly iBclincd. biace tbea I bare enocluded to ap ply for tbe Cooaul Uenerel at I'erie, inrtead of Ibo Aualrian unaaioo, a. 1 prrfrr Parla to Vienna.

Youra, aery reapecttully, OUASI.RB UlirEAU. Ho followed up bis communication by persistent personal uppeals, and by writing notes aud tellers, urging in various ways his claims lor this posi tion. Not only did bo besiege the Secretary of Kioto and tho officers of iho Stalo Department, but tbo Presi dent and tbo oflicors of tho Executive Mansion. Generally tna'.ed witb courtesy and kindly dismissed, as bis wunls und necessities becumo more urgent ho became moro persistent and determined. On tbe Hill of March he commenced wriling to tho President, staling his reasons why tho position should bo given him, and urging in various ways his claims for tho pluco. Vt hen his application leached tho President, ho wus politely referred, us were all other applicants for similar appointments, to tbo Department of Suite, tho recommendation ol which wus uetlul for positions ol tho grado ho sought. Ho lrcqueiilly saw tho Secre tary of State, and had various conver sations with Mr. Hilt, tho Assistant Secretary, in which ho urged his claims upon their attention, n caned by bis importunity, the Secretary of Stule, on Suluiduy, tho Mill ot May, nccording to tho prisoner's statement in writing, said lo bim: "Never spoke to sio aguin on Ibo Putis Consulship as long us you live." On the following Monday ho wrote lo tho President informing bim of Mr. Bluino's statement, umi suying ho was satisfied Mr, Blaine wus endeu'voring to run tbo Stulo Depart ment in the interests ot his own cutuli- ducy for tho Presidency in 1SS4, and appeuling to tho President direct for au immediate order for bis appoint ment. During this timo bo continued 10 visit tho Lsxecutivo Mansion, and urged und insisted upon un opportunity to sco tbo President, finally, it be came necessary in order to avoid his presumptive intrusion, to prohibit bis entrance into tbo WbitoHouso. Soured and indignant at this ttcatment, disap pointed and enraged, on Ibe 2IIJ of Muy ho wrote President Gurfield u Idler, in which, In tho light of the fearful trag edy that followed, it needs no discern ing eye to dolect tho threat of murder; this is the first premonition ot llio con ception of this crime. That loiter was the first indication thut disappointment hud turned his heart to malieo, and that ho bad dotermined in rovenge to commit the crime with which ho stands chargod. Ho was still smarting under tho indignity cast upon him by tho Secretary of Slate ; bo was still suffer ing from the rebuild ho hud received at tho hands of tho employees ot tho Exoeulivo Mansion ; ot inordinato van ity, nnd of nparnlleled sell'cstcem, ho bus keenly fill tbo personal outrages ho supposed had boon committed upon him, and bo dotermined to avengo tbem. That letter is a rcmarknblo ono ro markablo as indicating tho niotivo that prompted this terrible crime remark able as giving an insight into tho rea sons thul impelled this man to ncrvo himself up lo a condition to commit ill's deed. It was as follows : ffrirrrof OertrM : Prlrate 1 have brea tryiog to beyoar friend. 1 do not know whether you appreciate it or not, but 1 am moved lo call your atientton lo the remarkable latter from Mr. Ul.ice, which I havo )uat noticed. According to Mr. Farwell, of Chicago, Illaioc ia a vindictive politician and an evil teniae, end yon will bare no peace till you get rid ot him. Thie letter ahowa Mr. Illatne la a wicked man, and yoa ought lo demand hie immediate re.icna tion, otherwiaa you and the Iti-puhlicao party will come to grief. I will aoe you In tbo morn ing if 1 can and talk with you. Vary re.pectlully, Cnaa. OciTRAn, Y'ou seo in these sentences his bitter ness of spirit, inspired by tbe trontmcnt he claims to havo received at the bands of tbe Secretary of Stalo, and tho do niund for his removal, and tho threat 11 it was not dono what would result. Yet wo will find that on tho 21st of March ho wrolo to Secretary Blaine : I am vary glad peraonally that the Preaident .elected yuu lor hit premier, e a a yuu tbe mau above all olbora lor the plaoe. That is ono chapter in tho history oi this crime. Tbo letter standing alone and independent of other circumstances would not of itself attract attenlion to its peculiar and signdicunt expressions. But it will bo shown that among tho papers left by this mun for publication is found one dated Juno Hi, 1881, in which ho uses this significant language: "I conceived tho idea ol removing tho President tour weeks ago." So that al iho timo ho wrolo tbat letter be in effect said, "I want my oflico; Mr. Bluino stands in my way ; I demand bis removal ; if it is not done, ruin for you and tho parly will bo tho result." It will bo lor you to cousidur whether ibis was not as near a threat ol his determination to do this crimo as ho dared then to mako with bis knowl edge ot llio law and tho danger of ex posure. Whon ho bad conceived tho idea ho had been rebuffed and, as ho thought, insulted by tho Secretary of Slato. He had been driven from the Wbito House, ho was disappointed In bis grand ex pectations, ho was without money, and an almost destiltito wanderer upon tho streets, and he soon dotermined to do tho cruel deed ; but here is tbe first conception, the original inspiration hero tho ground work of his settled determination. Onco the idea con ceived that ho was a wronged and out raged man, it took but litllo time lor bun to decide lo represent his actions as being tho result of his desire to vindieaio somo great principle. Ho knew, and well know, that he must bang somo screen in lront of tho real motive for his crimo. His heart was wicked enough to conceivo from it own malignity the crimo itself, bin bis shrewdness and vanity demanded that the publio should not g"'-" upon his real motives. This will account tor many of tho extraordinary eirenmstancosconnootod wilh tho crimo. Tbia will explain many of his lofty and egotistical utter ances. It is true there was a period during this timo w lien there existed dissensions in tho party in power. It is a well known lacl tbat, as between tho Execu tive and certain prominent and emi nent men, thero was a dillerenco of opinion as to the courso to ho pursued and the policy to be inaugurated by ibe administration then just in its com mencement. It is truo there were grave differences of opinion and earnest expressions of sentiment on questions of great gravity and importance to tho peace and wollaro ol the country, ana CAN, I as attendant upon those there were licquont utterances ol bitterness by partisans on o'ther side. To this man's wicked and revengeful mind it immo diately occurred, "here is tho oppor tunity to commit this crimo, to avenge myself and shelter my action under the claim that it was tho out growth of tbo present strife ;" and be systematically and cunningly prepared au apology and defence, of his crimo in accordance with this. You will learn by tbi testimony that will bo presented to you, that from the timo of his arrival in this city, and un til bo had lost the expectation of favors io do received, and made up riiB mind to kill iho President, a period of nearly three months, ho was an earnest so called Gurfield man. lie announced to the President, as will bo shown by his own letter, his dovotion and lealty to him in tbo contest then going on. Ho desired constantly to impress upon tho President thut he was for bim as against ovory ono clso. You will find him, on May 7th, announcing to tho i'resi dent that in tbo contest going on ho stood by bim. But when ho had lost all hopo of tho appointment desired under tho administration of President Garfield and all expectation of olliciul recognition from ibis source, bo re. solved to seize upon tbe pretext afforded by tho situation to gratify bis rovongo, to kill tho President and shield bis real motives from tho public. After tbiB hud been fully settled in his mind, with his knowledge of tbo world, wilb bis experience of human afluirs, wilh his observations of society lor bo is a man ol no ordinary ability in theso direc tions bo cnrcfully determined to make the situation ol advuntngo to him, and when ho hud fully conceived this Idea, when it bud fastened itself on his mind, bo went to work to accomplish his pur pose with a spirit of vindiclivoness with a cool determination that has scarcely a parallel in tho annals ot crime How many efforts he made to do this deed, or when and whero ho decided upon tbo exact method ot its commis sion, no human mind can tell. On the 8th day ot Juno ho borrowed from an neqiiaiutonco in this city fl5, repre senting thut ho was out of money and desired tho amount to pay his board bill. After procuring this loan he at onco visited the store of Mr. O'Meara, on tho corner of lotb and F streets, lor tho purposo of purchasing a weapon, in tins, as in all other acts connected with tho commission of this crime, he displayed the malignity of his deter mination end tho wickedness of bis motives. Ho asked for a pistol of tho largest culibro and ono that would do tho most effective work, and was shown and purchased tho pistol which ho finally used, a wenpon terrible to bo bold, carrying a bullet of tho largest sizo, a weapon that was setl'cocking, in order that thero might bo no delay in its uso when an emorgency occurred. How for twonty-fonr days he carried that deadly weapon, and bow ollen he dogged tbe footatops of the unsuspect ing President, bow ho watched his carriage, how ho made bis arrange ments at tbo church, how he followed bim from tbo rosidonco of Mr. Blaine, watching and waiting for Ibo latal hour, be alone can tell. But on tbe morning of tho 18th of Juno bo ascertained, from publications in tho nowspapors, that the President would go to Long Brnnch, and hfl de termined to kill him at tbe depot. How he went thero fully prepared for that purposo end was deterred from its accomplishments bia own words best lell. Boturning to bis room he wrote : W AaniROToR, Jone 18th, 1SSI. I Intendei to remore tbe 1'reaideot tbia morn ing at the depot aa ha topk the oera for Long Branch, but Mra. Oarfleld looked ao tbia, aad olung ao truierly to .the Pretident'a arm my heart failed ma to part them, aod I decided to lake him alone. It will be oo worse for Mra. Garfield to part with ber buahand tbla way than by natural death, lie la liable to go at any time anyway. 0. U. And after this came another poriod of watching and wailing. It might be a Btory ot thrilling interest to kuow how ollen tbo fatal danger threatened the lamented dend, and how olton, while buoyant with life, the shadow of deal h haunted him. But again, we aro in tho field ot conjocturo until wo como to tho morning of tho murder, tho occurrences of which I have already described. And this completes the story of this orime : This ends the recital of tbo circum stances attendant upon Ihis national boroa-emont. .For it cannot bo lor gottcn '.hat the effects of tbat fatal shot wero felt throughout Ihe land; that not only ono lumily mourned, but around every hearlhstono and about every fireside thoro hung a shadow, and it is not rsurpising that many for a time forgot law and doubled i'rovi dence, lor it soemcd so torrihlo that this man in the lull tide of his career of eminence and usefulness should fall murdered without warning or notice No verdict of yours can recall him. Ho "sleeps tho sleep that knows no waking on tho peaceini banks 01 bcatitilul Lake Erie, whoso limpid waters wash the boundaries of bis nativo Suite, overlooking the cily ho loved so well, and beneath the sod of that Stale whose people had crowned his lilo with tho highest honors. It is too lato to call that husband back to to tho bereaved wifo and fatherless children. For that wailing litllo mother whoso faco will never tado Irom tho nation's memory, thero can bo no ro lict in this world, The latal deed in dono and Its horrors and griefs must remain. You bavo boen each asked whether you wero governed by religious con viclions, and upon your oaths you hnvo answored affirmatively. Eighteen hundred years ago it eras written by Ihe pen ol inspiration as the law of that merciful God vfiom you revero: "Woe unto tho trorld bocatiso of offences, lor it rnue. ncods bo that offences como. But woo unto that man by whom the offnco eomoth I ' It were bettor lor him that a mil'stone wero hangod about his neck and that be were drowned in tbo dearths of the sea." And tbo honest, patriotlo, law-abiding people of this country aro waiting lor your verdict, to see If iho man by whom this great offence came shall suffer tbo just and moritod punishment of the law. GUITEAU'S INDIFFERENCE, During the delivery of the above address quiet reigned in every cornor of the court room. Guiteau himself was tbe only man who seomed to nay no attention to it. In his exalted placo as "an agent of Iho Deity" bs appar ently considers himsoll above subll mary eloquence. Ho spent tho time looking over newspapers and occasion ally conversing wilh his brother. Messrs. Scovillo and Bobinson, during the delivery of the speech, paid careful attention to it, and occasionally mado notes. Mr, Scovillo smiled in Ins quiot way whon some ol Guiloau's eccentric letters were rend, for there is no man who has a livelier appreciation of tbe grotesque phases of the case than Mr. Scovillo. SECRETARY BLAINE. When the reference waa mado to Guiteau's assertion that Secretary Blaine was running bis department io tbo interest of bis own Presidential as pirations In 1881, the Secretary broke out into a good humored smilo. Later whon a loiter was read charging Ihe Secretary with being a vindictive man, and advising the President to get rid ol him, thero was a general laugh, in which the Secretary joined. TUEBE WAS ONE MARKED SCENE in tho delivery cf the sddro. In tl passage whero the District Attorney showed that he bad threalonod ruin to the President tho prisoner, who waa apparently a careless listener, dropped his paper, broke out and said, with considerable nonchulutice : "Political ruin, your honor not personal ruin thut 'a what I meant." Hero Judgo Portor aroso and said, wilh great gravity : "Tbo administra tion of justice, your honor, and espe cially ol criminal justice, should never bo obstructed by t.io clamor or disor der, or contumacy of tho prisoner." "1 think," remarked Judgo Cox, "tbat it is in tho power ol tho court to havo tho prisoner removed, and pro ceed wilh tho trial without bim" "I will nut offend again, your honor," interrupted the prisoner. "I led a deep interest in this case." "I should think, under the circum stances, you would," reraarkod the court dryly. Guiteau then subsided. DURING THE AFFECTING CLOSE of Mr. Corkkili'a address, Mrs. Scoville bowed ber bead and wept. Several oilier ladies In tbo court room wore ia tears, and somo reports affirmed that the jury was affected. Mr. Corkbill finished at ten minutes past 11 o'clock, and his address was roundly applauded by the spectators. Mr. Bobitison announced that tho defence would reserve their opening. SECRETARY 1ILA1NE ON THE WITNESS STAND. Socretury Blaino may tuke tho stund," suid Col. Corkbill. Tho Secre tary then stepped into Iho box and was sworn. "What is your naino and business?" asked Iho Distnct Attorney, who con ducted tho examination. "My name is James G. Bluino, and 1 am at present Secretary of Stuto." "Wero yon acquainted with James A. Garfield f" "1 was acquainted witb him liom 18(13 to tho hour of his death." ' "Will you pleaso state wholher you ever saw tho prisonor before ?" "I saw bim vory frequently in the months of March, April and May last." "Woro you with President Garfiold at the timo bo was shot?." "I was by his side." Tbo District Atlorncy hero asked tho witness to state whut then occur red. "In narrutivo form ?" inquired tbe Socrctnry. "Yes, sir." "1 wish to tuke tho directions of the counsel for tbo Government," said the Socretury, hesitating, "as to what point ot tho naralivo 1 should begin." The District Attorney suggested thut ho should begin wilb the lucls im mediately preceding tho shooting. the secretary's oraphic story or THE ASSASSINATION. "On tbo night of July 1st," began the Secretary, "I was engaged until near midnight wilh the President on public business. Oo parting ho said that 1 bad better come aguin in the morning, aB hooxpected toleave thocity that morning. On tbe morning of tho 2d I went to tho Wbito House accord ing to bis request ; 1 was detuined somo little time in consultation with bim io tho Cabinet room, and then we started for the depot. Ho rode in the carriage in which 1 came to tho White House ; it was the Slate department carriage ; it was followed by President Garfield's carriugo witb tho children ; we rode down the avenue with no par ticular Incident. When we arrived at the Baltimore and Potomac depot at tho B street side wc sat a moment to continue the conversation we bad beon engaged in at tho Wbito House. Tbon ho turned to say 'good bye' to mo, and I said 'no,' I would escort him to tbo car, for 1 did not think it proper tbat tho President should go unattended,and besides, 1 wanted lo see and talk wilh the members ol the Cabinet wbo wero about to go. Stepping from the car riage he took my arm, as he ascended the steps of tho depot. He was on my left. Ho stopped lo speak to some one 1 think a police officer, tho same who had just beforo that had told us that we had ten or twolvo minutes beforo tho train would leavo. As be turned to speak our arms became disengaged. As wo entered the waiting room we woro not arm in arm, but side by side. Wo had got half way across tbe room when suddenly there was a very loud discharge of a pistol, followed instantly by a second report. At first I thought it was somo ono wbo bad become en gaged in an affray, and did not think any deed of violence had been at tempted against tbe President. I touched him to hurry him on away from dsngor. Aa I did that tho Pres ident threw his arms up and said, "My God I what's this ?" According to my impression this exclamation was made between tbo shots. There was thon a rush by mo of a man. 1 think it was on my right that he passed. 1 followed alter him instinctively and followed, I think, a distance ol eight foot, when a shout came up : "We have caught him ; wo have caught him." I turned then, and tho President had sunk quite down. When I got there be was vom iting profusely. Thore was, of courso, immediately a very large crowd around him. Mallrossca wore brought and he was taken to an upper room. Med ical aid was immediately at hand, and bo was then taken to the White House. This was fifty minutes or an hour after he was shot, I think. 1 re turned to my own homo and wrote a dispatch for tho public tbe European publio especially, though I gave it out to Ihe public bero in which 1 stated "At this hour, 10 SO." I arrived at my bouse about the time the President was taken to tho White House" "Thoso aro in brief," said tbe Score tary. "the circumstances connected with my observation. When tho Pres ident was lying in tbe upper room at the depot thoro was a gathering around of the Cabinot officers. Thore had yet been no report mado as to wbo had fired iho shot, but 1 gave my informa tion that tho man I saw warf Charles Guiteau, whom 1 had socwj several times. I gave that Information, 1 think, before it was known to the po lice who the man was. Cf coarse as Ibe shot waa fired behind my back X did not see the shot fired, and did not soe tbe pistol, as he did not have it ex posed. 1 recognized the man as be fled." Horo a largo diagram showing the ground plan of the dopo' was brought in, and the Secretary pointing out the different parts of the depot, explained to the jury more minutely tba various points. THE SECRETARY'S KNOWLEDGE OF GUI TEAC AS AN OfllCI SEEKER. "Ilow oBon have you socn the pris oner to the best ol yotirrooolloction 7" "Well, very often. Numerical state, menu ir apt to be exaggerated when recalling such circumstances. Accord ing to my recollection bo visited meat the Stato Dcpartmont tarenty or twen-ty-five times.
