NEW YORK, May 1.
The Herald's Newborn special says it is
generally believed that Johnston, or
of the leading rebels, expected the
Feder tlsto accede to theirjpropositions un

prominent civilians, who accompanied

peared soon after. Another is that on
leirning that our Government had refused

no further time for reflection or confer
ance wilh the military authorities. At six
clo k on the morning of the 24th Gener
al Sherman notified Johnston that his
terms were not accepted, and truce would
in forty-eight hours. Later in the day
sent another demand to surrender his
army on tho same terms accorded to Lee.
Johnston replied on the 25th, asking an
interview for modifying the previous
agreement for surrendering his army.
Sherman deelined to discuss the subject on
basis of the old agreement, but named
time and place where he would meet
him. Johnston accepted. They accord
ingly met near Dura Dam Station, about
twenty-seven miles trom Raleigh, on the
26th. Sherman arrived on time, but ow
ing to an accident to tbe train by which
Johnston was coming from Greensboro,
arrival was delayed several hours. He
finally made his appearance, looking much
worse for the past two week's anxiety and
trouble, but was outspoken and franc in
arranging tbe agreement for his capitula
A lew minutes conversation settled
preliminaries and terms. These were
soon reduced to writing and signed, and
are the same as those extended to Lee, al
though probably not expressed in precise
ly the same language. The negotiations
were conducted in General Sherman's
name, and Johnston had no intimation of
the Lieutenant General's presence at Ral
eigh until the final teams of capitulation
were signed, wnen Grant quietly put his
approval on the back of them.
During tbe interview between Generals
Sherman and Johnston, the latter uniform
ly declared tbat the war was over, and to
continue the war longer was not only
wrong but criminal, and when the south
ern people learned that his army and
Lee's had surrendered, there would be none
counsel a longer continuance of the con
test. He stated openly that bis troops
should fight no longer. IT he could not
obtain reasonable and satisfactory terms,
would disband his troops and send
them home. The armies were nearly six
miles apart at the time the capitulation
signed. General Sherman had moved
part of his army far beyond Raleigh be
fore the truce was agreed upon. After
the signing of this famous memoranda, this
army was drawn back to the latter city, ex
cept Kilpatrick's cavalry, which picketed
the line of country for about twenty-five
miles- beyond Raleigh, and Johnston's
troops, well back towards Greensboro,

na The tavern is owned by Mrs. Surratt,
and leased to the old man who keeps It.
L" con a close examination, he stated that
Mrs. Surratt had been there on Friday af
ternoon, and left word that two men would
arrive during the night, who were to be
crenerallv provided for. She also directed
that two carbines suspended by a string be
tween the plastering ot a partition, snouia
be given them.
Booth and Harold arrived as 'expected,
and remained until some time on Saturday.
forenoon, but on leaving Booth, declined, to
take a carbine, stating tnat ne was too lame
to carrv it.
Harold, however, tooK one, wnen tne two
set out for the lower counties. Upon reach-
in e the neighborhood of Bryanton, near
Port Tobacco. Booth's lee became too
vjainful to proceed further, and the servi
ces ot Dr. Mudd cf that vicinity were
called into requisition.
After the fracture had been dressed and
Booth had left, the detectives arrested
Mudd,whodenied all knowledgeof his char
acter. The boot, nowever, wmcn nao oeen
cutoff from Booth's foot, the inflammation
rendering it impossible to draw it off, was
found, and in it was written with ink, J.
Wilkes, the word Booth evidently having
been scratched out with a knife. Why
any portion of the name was left is a mys
tery, unless a sudden alarm hurried oft tha
party before the completion ;of the eras ion.
The next place Booth and Harold wera
heard from was at the house of Dr. Coxa.
The latter, on being questioned, denied
having seen any such persons, but said
hree paroled rebel soldiers had ap
plied there for accommodations, and had.
been sent away. Coxe s servants, however,
all assert that the two men had stayed
there over night, that their master had en
tertained them in the most hospitable man
ner and upon their departure in the morn
ing gave each a quantity of whisky.
The detectives next came upon the fugi
tives at or nearThatcher swamp in Charles)
county. There they found a dilapidated
shanty, occapied by an old colored woman
who stated tbat on uut morning two wen,
one of them with a crutch, had come out
of the woods and asked for something to
eat, offering to pay any sum for it. She?
oeing atraid of them told them she had
nothing; there were no white people around
there; and that they could get nothing to
eat in that vicinity.
The lame man then inauired the direc
tion to the Great Swamp, which she gave,
and they went off.

surrounded on all sides bv dense rjina
woods, with the exception of tha MIA airier
bounded by the swamp.
. The 8th Illinois cavalry and a regiment
of colored troops were immediately sent
through the swamp in every direction,
searching every thicket, but without find
ing any trace of the assassins, tha latter
evidently having secreted themselves in
the pine woods, and made their escape)
while the swamp was being scoured.
Oa Sunday afternoon Booth and Barokl
crossed the .Potomac, at Swann Point, a
short distance below Mathias Point, and
passing Port Boyal, en route to Louisa
Court House, were captured at Garrett's
xlarold, in a conversation with an art.'

some time previous to the murder of Presi
dent Lincoln made a remark that excited
no special attention at the time, but in tha
light ot subsequent events it would appear
that Booth and himself contemplated (hal
ter somewhere in tbe Spanish dominions.
Surprise has been expressed that Booth
selected such a shallow-psted blab-mouUr
as Harold vs his nearest accomrilice in aa
terrible a plot. This mystery may be ex
plained in this way: Harold, a young
man of idle and vagabond habits, was a
good shot and capital boatman, spending;
much of his time in gunning and fi-hing
excursions in the lower counties of Mary
land, acquiring in this way a thorough
knowledge ot the country, especially its by
paths, forests, swamps, and creeks, sonzht
only by the hunter and fisherman.
Un tbe outbreak of the rebellion thic
knowledge made his services valuable in
the capacity of guide for blockade-runners.
sua mere is no aouoi dui tnat ne has been
actively engaged in that business through
out the war. - Doubtless he was recom

flight, and that the acquaintance between
them was formed in that way.
But for the injury received by Booth in
