N. Y. Sun, 25th.
A private letter from Aagusta, Me.,
gives the particulars of the sad accident
to Senator Blaine's daughter Alice. She
is sixteen years of age, very pretty, full
of talent, charming and popular. Talk
ing with a gentleman on Saturday even
ing in tbe parlor of her father's house,
she toyed and played with a tiny pistol
that belonged to her brother. The
visitor begged her to pat it away, al
though it was unloaded, and spoke
gravely of asing even empty pistols as
playthings. When he arose to go away,
she laughingly ran up stairs te her
brother's room, got a cartridge and put
it in tbe cylinder, and came bounding
down, calling to ber friend, who was
passing out of tbe front yard, to see
her shoot but before she bad leveled
the weapon in her gleeful hurry, she
pressed the trigger, and tbe ball struck
between her eyes, passing upward.
Miss Blaine clasped her head with her
hand, and crying, Ub! I am shot! fell to
tbe floor. Surgeons have probed for
the ball, bat cannot fiad it. The child
suffers terribly. Inflamatien of the
brain is feared, but tbe surgeons give
the family hope.

Csllector Simmons apparently doesn't
sympathize with tbe whining of some
of his fellow federal office holders and
their sore beaded sympathizers over
tbe civil service reform order as des
ti active to the Republican party.
What he says in worth quoting again
for its bard sense and its complete
answer to what is popularly called "the
great moral lesson of the Ohio result."
"The idea of the great Republican party
of Massachusetts being in jeopardy,
on account of the non-activity of a few
hundred federal officials, is to the last
degree nonsensical and absard. If the
party in our State be reduced to this
dependence, there is little help for its

Senator Morton. Faffing Pas*—Only
Kept Alive by Opiatee and SUstn

Bth»Verji "Worst—Still Later, Dead.
Ls»TA*» APOI.15, IXD., Oct, 29.—:The
Senator Morton is not so
hopeful as it has been for a week pas?.
His 6tomach has retained nothing which
has been taken into it for the past twen
ty-four hours, and as a consequence has
grown weaker. He has been kept op in
fact by the administratioift)f opiates and
nutritious aids by the hypodermic pro
cess. His attending physician. Dr.
Thompson, does not think there is any
probability of his immediate death. It
is evident he cannot last loagunless tho«
is a change ia the condition
THE WORST—DZATH NEAR AT HA3TD.
In regard to Senator Morton's condi
tion to-night the truth is perhaps best
told by the following, which will appear
in the editorial column of the
morrow morning: Senator Morton ja
gradually sinking, and it now seenQ
scarcely possible that he can last mote
than a day or two more. Hope strength
ens the hearts of his friends^ for an boor
or two each day, but when in the retmto
of night they compare his condition with
that of the day before, there is some new
evidence of growing weakness and new
complications in his disease which leave*
all in dispair. Nothing has been read to
him nor any communication of news made
to him for the last twenty-four hours.
His stomach retained a small portion of
nourishment in the forenoon, bat ejected
everything given in the evening. He no
longer takes interest in what is going on
around him, and only craves the presence
of his own family. He asked his broth
er-in-law, Col. Holloway, yesterday, if the
physicians had given him np. He may
last several days, but the chances are
against his surviving through Wednesday
night. There were rumors of his death
upon the streets through the day and a
general feeling of gloom overshadowed
the city as reports of his condition were
made known. While there has been lit
tle from which to take hope for several
days, yet the people are reluctant to be
lieve they are to lose Senator Morton,
His physician, Dr. Thompson, stands by.
him day and night, and yet expresses, a.
hope that some change may take place
that will enable the stomach of his pa
tient to retain nourishment, 'and wHIr
such a change be thinks he might yet
survive. There, is a bare ptssibility tbat_
such may be the result, but it is scarcely
probable. The end of the great states
man. to all human appearances, is near
at hand, -r
LATER.—The Senator is dead as tha
telegraph elsewhere reports.
THE CUSTER BATTLEFIELD.
Facta Ahomt tfco Condition of «lo
ChravM—Wolveo and. India—
As mach has been said aboat Caster's
battle gfoand and that tbe dead have
not been interred, bat are lying above
gronnd, I will state tbe exact facts as
tbe case now stands. Upon the arrival
of tbe Second cavalry at the scene of
the massacre to-day, Lt. Col. Brackett
immediately stated his intention of re
interring those bodies aad bones which
bad bean dag up. Yoar correspondent
went ever tbe scene of Reno's fight and
all that part of tbe hill where Caster
and his party mat their deplorable fate.
On tbe bill where Reno made bis stand
the numerous rifle pits and breast
works show what his men did for their
defense. Down the bill aboat a hun
dred yards lie tbe remains of forty-six
horses, killed at tbe picket line.
Across the hills, and distant about a
mile and a half, yon come across the
first graves of Caster's men.
They are in good condition. Only one
was dag ap. Farther ap is tbe bill up
on which Caster fell, and where the fi
nal stand was made. Bones were scat
tered in every direction, bat not ha*
man bones. So many horses had been
Killed on these bluffs that their bones
were met with on every side. Graves
were fonnd in which all the fallen men
bad been interred. Stakes had been
driven at tbe beads of these graves to
mark tbe in 'There was fonnd akow
ground only twelve human sknlls and
some bones, evidently dag np by In*
dians and coyotes.
In two or three cases sknlls were
found stuck upon tbe grave stakes. Col.
Brackett immediately set about collect
ing these bones, and had them reinter
red as well as it was possible todowith
knives and horses' shoulder-blade
bones, tbe only implements at band.
It is unseemly for people to say that
these men's bones lie bleaching in the
sun and without decent bariat. All
who are conversant with military life
know that a dead comrade always re
ceives the best barial which it is possi
ble to accord him with the means at
hand. In a country like this, swarm
ing with wolves at all times and with
Indians a greater portion of the lims,
it is very difficult to keep a grave from
Let Them in All.
Randall, in appointing committees,
appears to have designed to let in nil
the prominent measures proposed, in
cluding railroad and levee subsidies,

sion, trusting to the House to take
care of every measure which any'com
mittee might offer.
