. . . The Poat Mortem.
Elberon,' Sept. 20. The autopsy has been hi
progress for more than an hour. One of tne first
discovering made was a large clot of blood in the
heart, which corroborates the opinion of the at
tending surgeons regarding the immediate cause
ol death. .
The autopsy of the President's body com
menced about 5 o'clock, and was not concluded
until nearly 8. A large crowd of persons assem
bled at the Elberon Hotel to hear tne results. Dr.
Bliss stated the autopsy had been a very tedious
one, and that the time occupied in searching
for the ball alone was three quarters of an hour.
The Poctor faid Mrs. Garfield was not much re
lieved since the autopsy, iuasmnch as it resulted
in the establishment ol the fact that the patient s
death was inevitable. The Poctor stated
that - the farther- point of the ball
was in , a . somewhat blunt or battered
condition, caused by the force with w hich it
truck the rib, while in other respects its original
hape was not altered. Pr. BIlss took charge of
the bullet, and sealed it for preservation until
the Courts should reouire its production. The
State of New Jersey has issued a permit for the
removal of the body.

Elberon, N. J., Sept. 20. The autopsy is pretty
nearly completed. It is s;,id the bullet was found
immediately back of the heart.
The anuouncemeci that the ball ' w as found in
the region of the heart has been verified. nd it is
6tated on authority that the developments of the
autopsy prove that death was inevitable, and the
President's life was only sustained by most excel
