Trial of Garflcld's Assassin.
i The trial of Charles Jumen Guitean for the sinrdor of President Garfield bepin in the Dis trict supreme court at Washington at 1C o'clock. The oonrt-room, capable of scaling 5(10 or COO people, was well but not uneomfort nlily filled. The Rrrnngoir.Hntg for preserving urdcr weie excellent, and the docornra and propriety of the occasion were unbroken by the spectators. Immediately surrounding tin Judge's desk were the seats and tables, and closo tn the marshal the newspaper correspond- .ents. Beyond tliem were placed tables and chairs for counsel and for the prisonor and liis friends. The remaining space within the bar, which comprises about two-thirds of tho area of the room, was reserved for members of the bar and for Indies. Outside the bar a platform three foot high had been eroctod, and about 200 chairB were placod upon it for the accom modation of the Roneral public. , Correspondents and member of tho bar were admitted as they arrived, but tho doors were not open to the general piiblio until a few min utes before 10 o'clock. Ttioro was an exciting scramble for seats by the motloy crowd which rushed in, but it lasted only a few moments. Hnveral special deputy marshals, wearing broad red Millions as badges of authority, woro stationed at different points in the room to preserve order, while two policemen well urinod took their seats directly behind and close to tho ehair reserved for the prisoner. Mr. Bcoville, the brother-in-law and counsel oi tho prisoner, entered the room about 10 o'clock and took one of the chairs reserved for the eounsnl. His eye had its habitual merry twinklo and his face wore a smile. Mrs. Sco villo, tho prisoner's sister, a portly woman neatly dressed in black, accompanied by her brother, John W. Ouiteau, of lioston, a good looking man of about forty or forty-fivu years of age, followed Mr. Scovillo after an interval of a few minutes, and took their Heats bovido him, leaving, however, nu empty chair between Mr. and Mrs. Scovillo. District Attorney Cork hill, accompanied by JikIro l'ortcr and Mr. Davidgo, apsoeiato coun sel tor the government, and by Mr. Hmith, ol the attorney general's department, came next, sealing themselves in a group at tho left of the row reserved for the counsel. Tho entrance of Judge Cox, tho formal oponiug of the court, the calling of the roll of the impaneled jurors and the eutraneo of the prieouer were the inci dents of the next fifteen minutes. Quiteau's air and general appearance were in contrast with what they wero when he was Indicted. Ho - v as clad in a new suit of dark material, and he wore a standing white collar, and his pol ished cutis were fastened with imitation gold cuff buttons. He swaggered as ho came in, scowling instead of cringing as on the former occasion, and very evidently deemed himeelr a persnnago, to honor whom tho assemblage had been gathered. Ho walked around to the seat reserved for him, and stood for a minute or more while his manacles wero being unlocked and removed, at tho eamo time piv ing somo directions to the officers who wero performing the services. Beating himself he looked at tho judge and at the people in front of him for a few seconds, and then turning to his left ho shook bancs rather patroni.iugly with his sister and brother. As the three cat Bide by side it was easy to trace a family re semblance in tho features of tho three, but the faco of the prisoner seemed to be a distorted caricature of the regular features of tho others, lie was less frowzy than on tho former occa sions, but not less repellant. His large cold gray eyes seemed to be incapable of n raring au expression except of cruelty and solfishuiw. He smiled as he greeted his sister, but the ex pression was more devilish than his customary arrogant frown. There were no other persons o( note present except those whose duties called them there. Perhaps a dozen women occupied seats at tho rear within the bar. Tho first proceeding was a plea made by Leigh Hobinsou, the counsel assigned to (itiitoan by the court, for delay. This proceeding was an evi dent surmise to Mr. Scovillo, wlicOwith some thing of indignation in his voice, made a spirited protest against being ignored by Mr. Kobinsun. He said that he represented the prisoner both as relative aud counsel, and that ho would refuse to have anything to do with the case if counsel whom he did not know and had not approved wore brought into tbe case. He was roady to proceed with the trial and did not wish for delay. Mr. Hobinsou pro tested that it was for want of time alone thai he had not consulted Mr. .Scovillo. ; When Mr. tjeovillo concluded, Guitean arosa 'and with emphasis Minified his approval of tho sentiments uttered. Ho did not want delay. From time to time during subsequent proceed ings ho got up and with increasing emphasis assorted that ho was his own lawyer ; that Sir. Scovillo was his assistaut, and that he did not want Mr. Robinson in the case at all. Ho was allowed to talk considerably, but was usually pulled down at last by iho policemen, at whom he growled and whom he commanded to mind their own business. Ouoo ho peremptorily or dered Mr. r.oliinson to take his seat. Vvlieii .lodge Cox commanded him to desist he acimi esood readily, ea ing ho would heed tho com mands of tho judge, but not of policemen, Thero was throughout a willingness on tho part of his couns' l that ho should exhibit himself at his worst ; but tho prisonot himteli soemod to bo inspired by hit own doniinoeringosotism alone. Itwas finally decided to proceed and draw the jury, reserv ing the question of delay until another occasion. The drawing for jurymen occupied tho re mainder of tho session. Mr. Rcoville questioned tho Jurymen, inquiring generally regarding their religion, business, place of residence, ami the depth of their conviction of tho guilt of the prisoner. Tho greater number had convictions too strongly fixed to be shaken by ordinary evidence and were dismissed. Finally live jurors wero qualified and itwas announced tlio t tho panel was exhausted. The following arc tho names of tho jurors selected on the first day : John I'. Ilailin, reatauraut-keeper; Frederick V. liraudeuberg, cigar-maker ; t'harles O. Htewarr, flour and feed dealer; Henry J. Bright, retired from business; Thomas II. Langloy, grocer. At tho suggostion of the district attorney, an ordorwaa issued for the drawing of seventy-live additional names from tho box. The prisoner at this point slowly roso and in formed tho court that he would like to mako a speech tho next morning, but ho was ordered by tho court to take his seat. He then passed the manuscript of his tpeech to a newspaper reporter, but before the latter could leavo the court-room Mr. bcovilio called him Lack and comiKilleu him to return it. This aroused tho inger of the prisoner, who excitodly declared that h was not under tho control of his coun sel; that ho was a lawyer, and knew the law himself; that when lie wanted help he would ask for it, aud that he desirod his speech to be published for tho purpose of influencing public opinion. He was again silenced by tho court, and it having been agreed that tho sittings ol the court should bo from 10 a. m. to 3 p. m. daily, allowing half an hour for recess, the court, at 1:05, adjourned. Tho manuscript which Guiteau passed to a reporter is a long and rambling document, in which he declares that he was inspired by tho Lord to kill the President, and that the latter's death was caused not by the bullet-wound, but by malpractice on the part of the doctors. He says, further, that he is not an assassin but a patriot, and appeals to the press for justieo and to the peoplo for pecuniary aid to liolp him eondnot his caso. He refers also to the claim that insanity is horeditary in his family, Bay ing his father had two sisters and a nephew and a nieco in the insane asylum. Tho second day of Guiteau's trial was occu pied in obtaining jurors. Beventy-five men wero examined as to their qualifications and only four of them were acceptable to counsel on Doth sides and added to tho five jurymen ob tained on tho first day. 'The jurors obtained on tho sooond day were Michael Bheehan, Samuel F. Hobbs, a plaeterer, G. W. Gates, a machinist, and lialph Wormley, a colored plasterer. When the prisoner lelt the court Louso to return to the jail he was conducted through the crowd, which stood close by upon either side, and hooted and jeered him as ho passed. He was probably made to feel for tho first time something of the abhorrence and de testation in which ho is held by the public Ho grew pallid and cringed like a hnntod .animal aa he hurried along toward the waiting prison van, reaching which he jumped nimbly within its sheltering incl wuro and was shut out from the crowd. A parting jeer was sent after him as he drove away. li I). Smith, of Now York, ex-assistant attorney-general, was appointed assistant counsel for the government in the prosecution of Guiteau. On the third day the jury was completed by the selection of the remaining three Jurymen necessary to make up the twelve. The names, occupations and characteristic features of this historical jury are given by a correspondent as follows : John P. Hamlin, a tall, silver-haired, thoughtful-faced American, a restaurant keepor; Frederick W. Brandenburg, a little, excitable, black-haired German, a cigar manu facturer; Henry J. Bright, a broad-shouldered, . bright-laced, comfortable-looking American, a retired merchant; and Charles J. Stewart, merchant; Thomas H. Langloy, grocer; Harauel P. Hobbs, plasterer; George W. Gates, machinist ; lialph Wormley, laborer ; W. H. Brawner, grocer ; Thomas Heinleiu, ma chinist, and Joseph Prather, commission mer chant, all of whom, with the exception of Wormley, are men of a similar stripe. Worm ley is a character. He is a man of natural ability, very quick-witted and well-balanced. He wm. year tgn, active in polities, and acquired solf-oonfidonoe and the courage of his conviotlons. : He is square-headed, his hair is slightly silvered, and he wears a perpetual smile. All the Jurors are intelligent, educated, . thinking men. Tboy aro all Christians. There aro no ffice-hohlers or oflioe-Boekors among thoni. Most of them are men of family, and all of them are respectable residents of the District. Taken as a whole it is one of the beet Juries ever im paneled here. The jury is satisfactory, alike to tho prosecution and defense, and from it an impartial verdict may be expcclod. In choon ing the Jury the defonse challenged in all twelve men and the proseontion live. Ihiringtho morning Guitean dashed off one of his char acterislio "statements," and insisted that it should be copied and givon to the press. He became furious when ho caught his brother endeavoring to suppress thn docu ment, aud Bcolded him harshly. Mr. Rcovillo took no special notion of his client's action, but boforo the adjournment of tho court tor the day he took occasion to make a personal expla nation, in which he repudiated tho statement and similar performances of his client, and an nounced that henceforth ho should communi cate with the press only through tho regular proceedings of tho court.. He had no sooner taken his scat than Guitean roso, and, Blinking off the bail ills, addressed tho judge to say li.t wa himself in principal charge of his "own caso, and as such had sent out his state ments. Ho declared in the courBO of his rc markSjWhieh the court permitted him to make, that ho had no assistant but Mr. Scovillo, there by rejooting Mr. Kobiuson; but expected to g t aid from several lawyers of standing through his appeal. "I want tho court ami everybody to understand," he exclaimed, "that I iim in chargo of frhis case mysolf." "Very well, I understand," replied Judge Cox, dryly. This is Guiteau's appeal dated in court : To tub Lf.oal FnorEsstnx ok Amiimca : I am on trial for my life, i formerly practiced law in Now York and Chicago, and" 1 prop js. to take an aetivo part in my defense, us 1 know more about my inspiration tiud views in the case than auy one. My brothcr-in law, Gcorgo Scovillo, Esq., is my only counsel, and I hereby Hppcal to tho legal profession ol America for aid. I expect to havo money shortly so I can pay thoni. I shall get it partly from tho settlement of an oi l mutter in New York and partly from tho sale of my book, and partly from public cni'rilmtiou to my defense. My defense was published in tho New York Herald on October (1, and in my speech pub lished Novombitr 1" (yesterday). Any well known lawyer of criminal capacity di Hiring to assist in my defense will ph ase telegraph, v. ith out delay, to George Scovillo. Washington, 1. (.'. If for any reason an application be refesed, the name will bo withheld from the public. " t'li.utLKs Gri nwr." Immediately alter tho court opened on tho fourth day Counsel Scovillo arose to make n personal explanation in which he said that there had been no disagreement between himself and Mr. liobinson, tho as.-ociato counsel, as would appear from certain publication-, and in con clusion said that Mr. Hooinson would : tuler ad the aid possible in tho caso, and that they would work in hauuonw At this point liuitcau roso to his feet and objected to Mr. liobinson taking part in his defense. He said he would manage his own caso, wovl I not trust Mr. lloiiuioit wish anything, as he had no brains. Ho wished the court to undcrs'and him on this point, and if counsel woro fotvu't upon bun ho would make a noise about it to tlie country. Ho represented the IVity in this case aud wished the court to understand it. iVnliuuing, be sni.l two or throe bhurlerbuss lawyers would lose the ca-o for him, and ho did not propose to submit to anything of the kind. The court informed the prisoner that if lie did not remain quiet ho would bo removed from the room. District Attorney Corkhid then made the open ing speech for the prosecution. Ho revie wed the circumstances of tho shooting and of the President's l. ath, detailed the conduct of Guitean, au.l showed by his letters that he had way back in l!?-0 begun tssiay plans for getting au oftieo from President Garfield, and bow in his disappointment he plotted the President's death. Mr. Corkbill declared that Guitean's claim of acting in vindication of some great principle, and taking advantage of the dissen sion in tho liepublican party to cloak bis real motive, was only a shrewd pretense. The address was eloquent, and it at times drew tears irom the auditors. Alter Mr. Cork hill had sat down Mr, liobinson said that tho defense would lescrvo their open ing. Secretary Blaine wr.s then called to tho stand by tho counsel to tho government, aud testified that ho had known James A. Gar field from 13f,3 to the time of his death. Ho said, on reaching the depot, cn tho morning of tho assassination, tho President turned to say good-bye, but he in-isted upon accompanying him to the car. Ho heard a pistol shot, fol lowed almost immediately by another, and thinking there was soino trouble, touched the President for the purpose of hurrying him on ward. At this moment tho President threw up his arms, exclaiming, "My God I What is tills V " The secretary, continuing, detailed the circnmstauceB of the removal of the President to tho White Honee and other matters pertain ing to the shooting, all of which have been pub lished heretofore. In response to Colonel Corkbill, the secretary testified that Guiteau visited tho department many limes seeking the appointment cf the consul-generalship at Paris, lie informed Guiteau that thero were no pros pects of his receiving tho appointment, and requested him to discontinue his visits. Secre tary Blaino was cross-examined, and testified as to tho locality of tho shooting, pointing out on a diagram of tho Baltimore and Potomac depot the spot on which tho shooting occurred. Ho said ho had received numerous letters from tho prisoner persistently urging to be assigned to speak in tiio Maine campaign ; the letters were doubtless destroyed with other campaign debris, liegardiug Guiteau's isits to the state department tho secretary taid he was one of perhaps forty applicants on tho days ho came, and that ho suffered tho disappointment of tho rest in his endeavors to ob'.ain an appointment. Ho at no time noticed anything which would indicate nny derangement of Guiteau's mind. Mr. Scovillo in questioning Mr. Blaino referred to the difficulty which aroto in tho ltepublican party in New York after the appointment ol Collector Itobertsonaud requested the secretary to explain the situation as it existed. Secretary Blaine answered a number of questions on the subject of tho resignations of Senators Conk ling and Piatt aud the controversy in tho New York legislature, and upon being further ques tioned suggostod that ho would make a political speech lor tho defense if it was desired. Mr. Scovillo explainod his reason for putting the questions, saying that ho desired to show tho feeling of bitterness in political circles with a viow to proving the bearing it -had upon the prisoner's mind. At this point the prisoner ex postulated with Mr. Scovillo, stating that ho desired him to comply with his (Guiteau's) w ishes in the caso, and if he did not do so thero would bo a big row. Ho was removed by the bailiffs with difficulty. Ho desired to contiimo the conversation. Mr. Scovillo paid no atten tion to his client. In reply to further ques tions the secretary stated that after tho assas sination of the Prosidout he paid littlo or no attention to tho conflict in tho Now York legis lature, and, in fact, thought nothing of politics. Ho said he invented the term " Stalwart " him self in 1H75. Scorolary Blaino, after further questioning, left the stand at 12:20 p. M., aud was followed by Mr. Simon Cn macho, the Venezuelan uiiuistor; Mrs. Sarah B. White, who was in charge of the ladies' waiting-room at the depot when President Garfield was Bhot; liobert A. Parke, ticket agent at the depot; Jud son W. Wheeler, a young man who was in tho ladies' waiting-room at the timo of the shoot ing; George W. Adams, publisher of tne Wash ington Star, who witnessed the murder, ami Jacob T. Smith, janitor of the depot. All theso witnesses testified as to the shooting aud guva such facta as wore made publio at tho time ol tho assassination. At tho opening of tho court r.n tho fifth day, and before tho prisoner was brought in, Mr. Mcoville addressed the judge, asking him to en force quiet on tho part of Guiteau. He was continuing with a request that an order be issued prohibiting any oilleial at the jail or elsewhere from giving to the press anything which Guiteau might write, when the prisonor entered and caught the purport of tho remarks. Guiteau, with flashing eyes, and with extreme anger displayed in evory" feature, arose and do noiuiced liis counsel as a double-dealer. Mr. Scovillo tried to quiet the prieouer, but his anger seemed to increase. When Judge Cox commanded the prisoner to be silent, and pro ceeded to sav something, Guiteau continued his angiy declamation, interrupting the Judgo, aud asserting that he did not care for the rul ings,, and that if he was excluded from the court during the trial, he would have a new trial by the court in banc. When he was seized by the officers ho shook them off, snarled at them in a flurry of passion, called them Bcoundrels, and bade thorn mind their own business. He made re marks at times during the remainder of the session, but with the exception narrated ho seemed peaceably and indeed humorously In clined, lie passed much of his time reading the papers and writiug. Occasionally he looked up at witnesses and smiled good-humoredly as the circumstances surrounding the assassin ation were alluded to, occasionally interjecting explanatory remarks of his own into the testi mony riven by witnesses. " I might observe that" to-day I have had the first square meal since July 3," he said, as a witness expressed tho opinion that ho was fleshier on tho i suouun than now. Ho enjoyed his own sallies and laughod heartily at thoin. The witnesses who testified on tho fifth day were Joseph K. Sharp, assistant train master of tho Baltimore and Potomac railroad; Miss Ella M. llldgley. who was present at tho depot on the morning of the mnrdor; Joshua Davis, gateman at tho depot; William S. Crawford, who drove some of Presi dent Garfield's batrgttgo to tho depot; John 11. Heott, a Bpecial officer at tho depot; L. L. Dtt Barry, a oivil engineer; Policeman Fatriek Kearny, who arrested Ouiteau: T. H. Alexan der, present at the depot; John Taylor, a colored hackman; A. Brown, chiof clerk at the state department; AdolphusJ Eekloff, a police lieutenant; J. Btanloy Brown, President Gar field's private secretary, who testified to Ouiteau's frequent calls at the White Houbo, and Jamos L. Denny, in chargo of the news stand at the depot. None of the evidence of Iheso wilncssoi contained anything that has not already been mado public. On the sixth day tho first witness examined was George O. Maynard, an electrician, who' testified to having loaned Guileau $25 $15 at one timo and till at another. Tho prosecution desired to prove lv this witness that Ouiteau borrowed tho $15' with which ho liought the revolver to shoot Ihn President. Ouiteau in-; torrupted tho witness several times in an excited manner. Joseph N. Bnrkart, cleikto Mr. Majnnrd, also testified to the loan of tho f 15, and thought Ouiteau's walk and tho way hn held his head a littlo peculiar. John O'Mcivm testified to selling tho pistol toi Ouiteau. Ho couldn't identify it, as thero' were thousands just, like it. Tho charges woro (hen drawn from tho revolver, at tho sugges tion of counsel and much to tho relief of the audience. Pending the examination of tho pistol, Ouiteau desired to announce to the court, that ho invited John D. Townend, of New York, and Leonard Hwett and A. B. Trudo, of Chicago, to assist him. Thero was plenty of brains on the olher sido, and ho desired aa much on his in the interest of justice "Anntheii matter," ho continued, "I desire to call to tho attention of tho court, Thero aro a number of disreputable chat actors about tho court, aud somo threats of viob neo have boon mado dur ing tho week past. I havo no fonrs for my per-i soiial safety. The chief of polico has kindly furnished mo a body-guard, and I wiBh to' notify all evil-disposo I persons that it they attempt to barm mo my body guard will shoot them down, that's' all there is about it." Then nodding to the reporters' tables ho added: " ltoportcrs, put tin' down !" Colonel A. L. llockwell was tho next witness, and proceeded to detail what he, observed at the time of the shooting. Mr. Sco villo interrupted to inquire whether it was worth while to go into tho details, adding, " Wo do not deny tho killing .'" Ouiteau horo broko in with: " Wo do denv tbo killing, your honor. Wo admit tho shooting." General D. O. Hwsim, the next witness, testified that ho was tho last, person to whom Mr. Garfield spoko Iub last words being ' Oh, Swuii'i!'' Dr. D. JV. Bliss was tho next witness. Ho pointed outon a por t on of a human skeleton tho course which the ball had talon, and tho manner in which death had boon produced. The wound mado by tho ball was the immedi ate cause of death." On oross-cxamiation Mr. liobinson required lhat Dr. Bliss should do scribo the varying symptoms of tho President's eao from tho' timo when tho doctor saw Gon iral tlarlicld at tho depot on July 2 until bis death at l-'.lboron, describing tho symptoms of each day separately. This mado a reforonco to the medical diary of the physicians necessary, and Pr. I'liM began to read from tho records. Dr. Heybuin. who wrote them, was sworn and placed in tiio witn-si box to act as an intor juoter of his handwriting. This had been go ing on for somo timo anil it was apparent that it would require, ono or two daily sessions of the court to complete the reading. Counsel for the prosecution, therefore, protested and offered to piaoo the record in the hands of the defense, from which they could frame such questions as they might desire, which offer was accepted. A section of tho vertebral column of the late President, showing tho track of the bullet through it, was handed to Dr. Bliss and identi fied bv him. Afterward this pieco was picked up by Mr. Scovillo, and wdiile ho held it Guiteau leaned xovcr it and for Bevoral minutes examined it. There was no expression except cno of curiosity in his countenance as ho gazed upon tho relic of the man he had murdered. Re port of tho Secretary of the Interior. The annual report of Secretary Kirkwood re lates largely to the Indians. Ho Bays, that "when tiio Indian shall have learned to speak and writo our language, to cam his own living by his own labor, to obey tho law aud aid in making and administering it, tho Indian problem will bo solved, and not until then." The secretary recommends tho following meth od of solving tho Indian problem: " There aro now in tho States and Territories west of tho Mississippi river 102 reservations, great aud small, on which are located, in round numbers, 221,000 Indians. Tiio numbers on Iho differ ent reservations vary from a few hundred to several thousand. There oro attached to theso ri sorvations sixty-eight agencies, each with its staff of employes. Thero are also established near them lor the protection alike of the whites and Indians thirty-seven military posts with laiger er smaller garrisons. Tho transporta tion of supplies to so many and so widely scat tered agencies and military posts is very ex pensive, anel our army is so small that tho gar risons at many of tbo posts aro not Butlicicnt either to prevent outbreaks or to suppress them promptly when they occur. It is my duty to say, and I say it with great pleasure, that the military authorities have, when called upon by this department, always responded with promptness aud efficiency; but it must bo ap parent to all who havo had occasion to noto their operations, that they havo been eeriously embarrassed in their efforts to coueen trato speedily at particular points suffi cient force to meet emergencies. Tho peculiar conditions attending tho transaction of public business for some months havo prevented me from giving this subject tho attention that in my opinion it deserves, but I am strongly inclined to believo that if all tho Indians west of tho Mississippi wero gathere d upon four or live reservations our In dian affairs could be managed with greater economy to the government and greater benefit to the Indians. In view of tbo facts stated as to existing reservations, I recommend that CongresH be asked to create a commission of three or four eminent citizeiiB.to visit during tho next year the reservations west of the Mississippi river for the purposo of recommending to Con gress, if they shall deem it wise to do so, tho concentration of tho Indians on four or fivo large reservations, to bo selecteel in dillerent parts of the West, on which tho different tribes shall bo located; and if this shall, in the judg ment of the commission, not bo wise, then to recommend the conoeutration of existing small agencies whero that can properly be dono, and tho reduction of tho area of others to dimensions proportionate to the number eif IudiaiiB now located thereon." In regard to tho work of tho patent office the roportsays that 15,175 patents wero granted during the last fiscal year, and tho receipts of the patent ollico wero $7b9,sii 5. Tho report of the commissioner of education is quptcd as showing that the progress of education during the year has been substantial and satisfactory. It is specially noted that in tho Southern States tho incomo derived from tho Ptabody fund has had the effect of stimulating tho work of education in a marked degree Hecro tary Kirkwood also quotes, but without com ment, Commissioner Eaton's recoinmcndatinu that the net proceeds of all ealos of public lands be devoted to educational purpose s and divided among tho several States and Terri tories in proportion to their illiterate popula tion. A Cuiljiu Custom. The Jayau Weekly Mail states that in the province of Rinkin it has always been the custom to disinter the dead at the end of every three years for the purpose of washing and otherwise pay ing homage to the skeletons, prompted by the same policy that leads rural col leges to confer tho degreo of A. JJ. on their alumni of three years' standing, on the supposition that wherever they are, their intellectual march will be on ward and upward. As Iiinkin was rav aged by cholera in 1878, the government of Japan naturally objects to the resur rection of the dead for cleansing pur poses, and has issued an edict forbid ding tho ceremonial. The ltinkinans, however, are obstinate, and to wash or not wash is the question now agitating the minds of the living, and possibly tbo dead, subjects of the mikado. The coming holidays will be more generally observed than any for many years, and wa would remind our readers that a bottle of Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup will prove a moat accept able holiday present A Cental Freak. -A Dayton (Ohio) correspondent of the Uncmnati Oatette tells this queer story: Many of the citizens tf Cincinnati will recollect that some time during the vear 18(50 professor conneoted with the Mount Auburn female seminary was murdered km Main street, near the canal rvnige. In company with two ladies be was returning home from somo place of entertainment, near midnight, and there being n Btreet cars at the time and the omnibus having ceased .? ,r",?; they wero talking to the hilltop. Just Rftor they crowed the bndge n couple of roughs mado use of some vulgar and insulting lan guage in reference to tho ladies, which the professor stopped to resent, when thertiflians stabbed him to death and imme.liitftly mn awav, and v,e think wero nev.-r apprehended. A full ac count of tho murder and all the pur ticnlars were published in the GawUe. and other dailies the next morning, giving the names of tho profesnor and ladies, nil of whom wero un!r"wn per sonally to tho writer of this nrticle. . Aw the time of the murder I was liv ing in 1'iqurv, Ohio, and the Cincinnati dailies readied tho rtty then as now, near noon timo. .Reaching niy residence about 12 o'clock I stepped into tho yard to see if the paper had arrived, and not fancliDg it I threw myself on a lounge n the dining-room to wait for dinner, and soon fell asleep. While thus dozing I dreamed I had in mv hands the CivZ mm-cial, tho paper I was then taking, and on opening the paper niy atten tion was attracted to the headlines calling attention to the murder, which I read through qnita carefully, readiij" all the namesatid circumstance ns thero given- deeply interested. As soon as 1 awoke, being called to dinner, I stepped out into the yard and fonnd my paper had arrived. Judge of mv sur prise on opening it 0 find the exact ac count of tho murder just as I hud read it iq my dream, and 60 far as I could recollect giving tho tame language 1 had read in my sleep, snd occupying just tho same amount of space in" tho paper that I had found in my dream rending. While sleeping, I had read correctly the name of the professor and tho ladies, although I nave no recol lection of ever having heard of Iberu before. This has ever been to mo a mystery which I could not comprehend, unless the theory be true, sometimes advanced, that the mind took a step out side of the body and went down street to hear the news, as similar occurrences havo been related.
