Kthanfcsgiving with this black stain of grief
i J 1 - 1 . 1 - 1 .1
How shall we write the terrible words!
jthat we must record to-night) How shall
we blot the bright happiness of yesterday's
and crime I The brain reels, the heart
ickens, the whole frame shudders at the
very thought of our great affliolion. The
rebellion, in its last dying agoniea, true to
the spirit which characterized its life, has
struck down our great, our good, oar noble
President, and, in the very hour of the na
tion's grandest triumph, he has fallen a
victim to the dagger of a base
itgsissin. - Even as we write
the words, the horror and en or
mity of the crime seems too great for com
prehension or belief, and were it not fori
ttie lnauDitaDie evidence Deibre us 01 tne:
fact, we should ihudderingly deny that hu
manity could be so base. ' '
We cannot dwell upon the terrible loe
which theXatkm has sustained. We can
not describe the personal grief which su
peradds its crashing weight npon each
man's heart to-day. We cannot spare
pace even to allude to tne Daroansm
and malignity which prompted thb
deed and which it evinces. One feei
ng over-masters thought, reasoning.
even grief the desire tor justice
and a righteous vengeance' npon the
traitors who struck this blow. Vused
into one fiery mass of burning and hoi;
wrath, the whole North will rise up, ii
need be, to avenge the death of our pat
riotic, self-sacriilcing, devoted and now
martyred President. Over his murdered
corse every lover of the Union will swearr
eternal vengeance upon treason and J
traitors.
Grief mingles with and intensifies the;
passion of righteous indignation ! He, the!
Great Emancipator; he, the laborious, pa-l
tient, prudent leader; he, the choice, the.
idol, the savior of the people, fallen I and
fallen, too, after four years of such toil and
anxiety and anguish in the cause of the
nation as none ever bore before him, and

No arteries cut. Particulars soon.
THIRD DISPATCH.
President Lincoln and wife, with other
friends, this evening visited Ford's Theatre
for the purpose of witnessing the perform
ance of the American Cousin. It was an
nounced in the papers that General Grant
would also be present, but that gentleman
took the late train of cars for New Jersey.
The theatre was densely crowded and
everybody delighted with the scene be-
More them. During the 3d act, and wMethe
there was a temporary pause
one of the actors to enter, a sharp report
of a pistol was heard which merely at
tracted atUntion, but suggested, nothing
serious until a man rushed to the front of
the President's box, waving a long dagger
in his right hand, and exclaiming . "Sic
semper tyrannis 1" and immediately leaped
from the box which was on the second
tier to the stage beneath, and ran across:
to the oppoaiteaideof tho stage, making his
escape, amid the bewilderment of the au
dience, from the rear of the theatre, and
mounting a horse fled. The tcroams of
Mrs. Lincoln first disclosed the fact to thetJ
- ...
Esaudience that the President had been!
shot, when all present rose to their!
feet, rushing towards the stage, many ex
claiming "Hang him." The excitement!
was of the wildest possible description, and
of course there was an abrupt internals-
sion of the theatrical performance. There!
was a rush towards the President's box,
when cries were heard of, "Stand back and!
Ijgive him air," "Has any one stimulants.'"
On a hasty examination it was found
that the President had been shot through
Hthe head above and back of the temporal!
jbona, and that some of the brains were
a - .
out. Ale was removed to a private
fj House opposite the theatre, and the Sur

Fred. Seward, of whom he demanded to see
the BecreUry, making the same representa-l
lion which he did to the servant. -What
further passed in the way of col
loquy is not known, but the man struck
him on the head with a billy, severely in
urine- the skull and felling him
almost senseless.
The assassin then rushed into the cham
ber and attacked Mr. Seward, a Pay
master of the United States Army, and
Mr. Hansell, a messenger of the State De
partment, and two male nurses, disabling:
them.
J He then rushed upon the Secretary who
was lying in bed in the same room and
nflicted three stabs in the neck, but sev
eriig, it is thought and hoped, no Arte-
ries, though he bled profusely.
The assassin then rushed down stairs
noun led his horse at the door and rode oflj
before an alarm could be sounded, in the
ame manner as the assassin of the
President.
It is believed that the injuries of the
Secretary ate not mortal, nor those of the
othtr3, although both the Secretary and.
Assistant Secretary are senousiy in
forgjured.
Secretaries Stanton and Welles and
other prominent officers of the Govern'
ment called at Secretary Seward's house
to inquire into hia condition, and there
heard ofthe assassination of the President
They then proceeded to the house where
he was lying, exhibiting of coarse intense
anxiety and solicitude.
An immense crowd was gathered in
front of the President's house, and a strong
truard was also stationed there, many per
sons evidently supposing he would be
brought to bis home.
The entire city to-night presents a scene
of wild excitement, accompanied by violent
expressions of indignation and the prc-Ii
roundest sorrow, many shed tears. The.
military authorities have dispatched
mounted patrols in every direction in order
if possible to arrest the assassins. The
whole Metropolitan police are likewise.
vigilant for the same purpose.
The attacks, both at the theatre and
Secretary Seward's house, took place at
bout tne same hour, 10 o'clock, thus show
ng a preconcerted plan to assassinate
these gentlemen.
Some evidence of the guilt of the party
who attacked the President are in posses-
aion of the Government and Board of
Police.
Vice President Johnson is in the city
and his headquarters are guarded by:
troops.

cavalry having pushed forward three days
with unexampled speed, arrived just in .
time to head off the advance) guard of ,

guard the railroad, came np during the af
ternoon and evening, joining General
Sheridan at the close of the terrific march- ' '
, averaging from twenty to thirty miles '
iperday. . . " '. "
The next morning Own. Urant ordered
n advance to Jettersville in the following
order: 2d Corps on the left of the 6th
Oorps, or left center, the 6th Corps on the
right center, and Sheridan, with the moat
oi his cavalry, on the right Cavalry was . .
ilso thrown it on the left flank. Lee had
not waited at Amelia Court House to re-'
iceive the shock intended for him, bat he ,
was aoon discovered hastening toward
Tayille, en the Appomatox where the
Jiburg road crossed it, twelve miles
jnorthwestof Bark's Station. The direction
jof Meade's and Sheridan's advance was
heading off the enemy.
The 2d corps on the left and the 6th
sorps on the right, moved toward the.
northwest. The 6 Ji on the right of the.

moving down from above joined in the
assault which resulted in Swell's sur-
render. During the night Lee was.
very busy crossing a portion of his troops:
over the high bridge. He prepared hla.
trains ani remainder for retreat. Fri

treat, setting fire to tbo high bridge, and
failing slowly back along the lower side.

Here until night he hell us at bay.
Prom here he directed his last unavailable
efforts to pierce oar lines and get around

possessing Prince Edwards Court House,

General Ord took a position in conjunc

Grant entered Farm villa and sent bis first
note to General Lee, asking the surrender
of his forces. Lee thought there wast

He commenced on Friday night in getting,
