Dutton, Company C, l'Jth Regiment Veteran Kcaerve Corps, who lias just returned from the Dry Tortugas, we have ob? tained some interesting facts relative to the conspirators and their trip to the rock-bound fortress, which is to be (for three of them) .their last' earthly home. Capt. Dutton, wirha sergeant, three corporals and twenty-six men, report? ed ut the W o-shiiigton Arsenal on the morning- of Sunday, July lb, and, biking charge of the prisoner*, placed thom on board Ibo attainer ?Suite of' Maine, bound ?ur Fortress Monroe, whiey point tiny reached at ip. m., uu tin; 17th. 'IneyTtvere then trans? ferred to Hie irrida, (Japt. Budd, nil on board, with the exception of Gen. l^idd, being entirely ignorant of the vessel's destination. At ?lark. oh*the liltb, the Florida, reaeiunl Port Boyal, ?S. C., where she discharged a cargo ol' cordage, ?te., und coaled. On tho _Tst, she sailed for the Dry Tortugas, reaching that barren und iuhospitable spot on th? '2ith, just ono week utter her depar? ture from Fortress Monroe. During the voyage, all the prisoners were more or less afflicted with-sea ! .sickness, and at one time half of the guurds were unfit for duty. Doctor Mudd and Arnold word particularly' wretched. ?Spangler, although quite sick, was fernen to practical joking. Finding ^ftui wliilc sick he c< mid get from the jBgtrgeon, Dr. Porter, a modicum of French brandy, he-concluded to take sick at various odd times, always wit^ pains for which vint GuUaci sjiiriiua is supposed to bo a sovereign cure; but his trick w;?8 discovered, and he was, .- much to his chagrin, obliged to quail' Jamaica ginger m place of. the inore palatable beverage. He was generally quito talkative, and expressed, himself as being satis lied with thc action of the Military j Commission, but continued to assort his innocence-of j >;trticipaiiou in the crime of assassination. In a conver? sation with Capt. Dutton, he remarked that he knew nothing of Booth's de? signs, aud that even after the murder, wmle Booth was passing through the theatre, he was unaware of the foul deed which had boen committed*. "The fact is, captain*" said he, "Booth was a privileged charucUrat Ford's. l?e had the run of the house at all times, day and nigh:,; bad access to the dressing rooms, and frequently carno to tho rehearsals unannounced, and always by th?o rear entrance. He was a great lavente and spent money freely. Whenever he came with his horse, he always called for me to groom the animal; and 1 have many a time blacked his boots, and done other menial work for him. 1 did not close the door behind Booth. It was a spring door, which you tran see when 'you get back to Washington, and .closed of itself, unless you held it open. *There was nothing unusual in my holding Booth's boise on the night of the murder, foy 1 had done it twenty times before. I didn't see how the Commission which tried me could have decided otherwise ia my case, considering the evidence; but I am not guilty of having anything to do with the crime." Hpangler was very lively during the ? voyage, and several .times ran up.the badder from tho hold, three stops uta time; heavily ironed as he was. He was'quite jubilant over the idea that he would not be a prisoner for life. "I'll come out all right; six years is not such along time, after all," said he. "You need not felicitate yourself on having a short time to'vtay, Spau gler," said Dr. Mudd. 'T don'twiow where they :;re taking us, but if it is to the Dry Tortugas, there is no inore chance for you*than for me. None of us will live more than two years." Up to this time not a word had boen dropped in r?f?rence to tho ultimate destination of the conspirators; but tliey had occupied themselves in dis? cussing tho probabilities of a residence ut Albany, a trip to some port on thc Gulf,-or a sudden death by drowning. O'Laugh'in was very reticent, rarely entering into conversation even w itu his fellow-prisoners. ? Mudd carried with him a printed copy of the evidence adduced during his tiial, and took great pleasure in picking it to pieces. Ho is described by our informant as M man of good education, considerable shrewdness, and strong rebel proclivities. Ho wa* never oft* his guard, always pondered a question well before returning an answer, and invariably spoke of Mrs. LSurrat as having been unjustly ?xe Teuted. It will be remembered that '-n his trial Mudd denied all knowledge I of Booth previous to the visit of the j lame assassin to the doctor's house; j but to Cap'..in Dutton he confessed that he was acquainted \vitk-Booth for sometime before the murder. "In re? gard to that deplorable crime, he as? serted that he did not know of it until after Booth's departure. Mudd \v:u> very gloomy during the voyage, and fears were entertained by his g.ftird that ho contemplated suicido. He was, accordingly, closely watyhed, very much ?o his indignation. "Why do you keep nae so closely guarded?'" said ho to t?ie officer in chargt of him, "Because," said Captain D, ''I am afraid I may lose yon. '' '.How loose niel, Then' is surely no chang? for mo to escape hero, and you do not suspect that I would kill myself?'" "That is just what I fear; and until I get my receipt for your body from the commander ot the post to which you are consigned, I deem it my Auty to have vour every step strictlv watch? ed." "Well, captain, you need have nc fear on uiy account. 1 would put ar end to my miserable existence but foi the thought of eternity. ? uni afrah to die, although 1 can bear this terri ble life, which is much worse thai death," When oft" the coast of Florida, tin weather being wann, the (prisoner wen? allowed to sleep on deck, am during the day their irons wore r moved. They were very grateful to this unmerited kindness, and showc? their appreciation by giving as littli trouble as possible to those who hat charge of them. When tho steamer cymo in sight d the Dry Tortuga*;, on the 2-itIu and i was made known to the criminals tim this treeless, lifeless place was tv b j their prison, their emotion could no bo checked. They cried like children Mudd and Arnold, in particulai evincing the most poignant grid Thc former paced the deck, wringin his hands', and exclaiming, time an again, "There is no hope for me, Arnold bewailed his fate in piteou tones. He said, "If this were Albany or any other place where my motin and sisters could sometimes see me, might bear my imprisonment, but hot I shall have no one to live for." Mud declared, when his paroxysm of gri< had subsided, that he should lose n opportunity to effect his escup? When asked where he would go if 1 succeeded in eluding the vigilance < the garrison, he cried out, "Hom Government would not touch n there. It would not hunt me don in tho midst of my wife and children. Shortly ?fier the landing of tl steamer, Col. Hamilton, llOth Ne York Volunteers, commanding tl post, proposed to assign Dr. Mudd duty as hospital steward, and Arno clerk, and to' provide the otho with employment to which they we best adapted, i On the following day the Flori ? loft for Key "West, to coal, Spangler sending to Mr. Ford, by Captain Dnt ton, a message to the effect that he (Spaugler.) was innocent. ? The. steamer was detained for two days ut Key West, and after taking in coal, started for New York, where she arrived in due season. [Washington Chronicle, 9///. To Travellers.
