Judge Wilkins was only saved by a witticism of his He had taken his stand by the side of Gov.

Tht president himself had taken his position but a few minutes previous, precisely where Gov. Gimet was kil edy but for some reason or other went aft, and (was thw providentially saved. The most Heartrending scene however, was thai which followed. The two daughters of Mr. Gardiner. of New York, ware Both on board, and lamented the death of their lather, while Mrs. Gilmer, from whom .hey in vain attempted to keep lite dreedful news of the leath of her husband, presented truly a spectacle fit top: lie depicted by a tragedian. . There she sat on deck, with her hair disheveled, pale is death, struggling with her leelings, and with the dig nity ot a woman. Her lips quivering, her eyes fixed and upturned, without a tear, only the corners a little noist, soliloquising "Oh certainly set! Mr. Gilmei cannot cannot be dead! Who would dare to injure him? Yes, oh Lord, have mercy upon me! Oh Lord, have mercy on him!" And then still more apparently calm and seeming to be collected, with the fuiies tearing her heart within, "I beseech ye, gentlemen, to tell me where my husband isl" "Oh, impossible! impossible! and he, caav he, can he be dead? 'possible!" Here Mr. Senator Uivea, ot Virginia drew near. "Come near, Mr. Rives," she said, in a soft whisper which resembled Ophelia's madness, "tell me where my husband is tell me whether he is dead. Now certain ly, Mr. Rives, this is impossible is it not sol" Mr. Hives stood speeehless, the tears trickling down bis. cheeks. "I tell you, Mr. Rives, it is impossible," she! almost screeched; and then again moderating her voice 'Now do, Mr. Rives, tell bis wife whether her husband H lives." Here several ladies exclaimed, "0 God grant (hat she may be able lo-cry. It would certainly relieve her some. If not, she must die of a broken heart." From the Baltimore Republican of Friday evening.
