STARTLING SUICIDE*
A School. Girl in DKntnllton,o M Drown*
IDcntuir.
Cincinnati Uazftlf, Dte, 4.
Tho neighboring city of Hamilton was startled
last evening by a rumor that Mies Miriam 11.
Hanford, daughter of tho Bov. Thomas Han
ford, pastor of the First Baptist Church, of that
place, had committed suicide. Tho young lady
was but 15 years of age, a bright and intelligent
pupil of tho public schools, aud was the general
favorite of her schoolmates.
Tlio fn &t intimation an}* person obtained of tho
calamity was from a uoto left about dark last
evening at the grocery of A. Smith & Rod, on
High street, near tho I’ost-Ofllce, directed to her
father. Sho wan last aeon alive about (i o'clock,
going north on Third atroct, probably directly
after tho delivery of tho letter at tho grocery.
Tho letter nos noon afterward delivered to her
father, who lives on tho corner of Front and
ItoAu streets, First Ward. It was dated Hamil
ton, 0., Doe. 8, 1H76, and addressed to 14 Dear
Pa, Ma, ami Bister.” After informing them that
she had been meditating suicide during tho past
two weeks, it wout mi to say that it boomed to
her as if she was in every person's way; that
the only means of getting out appeared
to ho by suicide, and sho had, there
fore, concluded to drown horsolf that evening;
that sho was in earnest, and fully determined
upon that course. Bho hoped that tho act would
not cause her parents to foul sorry, and closed
by requesting that no inquest bo held over her
body. Tho noto boro hor signature in
full. Her half-distrartcd parents at ouco in
stituted vigilant search and diligent inquiry.
From Miss Lizzie Paul, a schoolmate of Miriam,
thoy loomed that during tho noon recess yester
day in school, Miriam had written flvo letters,
saying that ono of thorn was intended for hor,
but would not bo givou her unless somo certain
thing should happen,
Tho following is a copy of tbo latter address
ed to Miss Paul, couched iu tho simple langnagn
of a school-girl breathing n school-girl's attach
ment, but none of tho horror of death, common
to children especially:
Hamilton, Dec. 3.— To Sallit: Ikm going to tell
you suuiL'ililng. It In that I oni gulag to drown my
self In the deep water, I know not where. It Is an
awful (hlmdthal I toll you, hut It U true. Pleasure

It may bo our lot to must ojaln la that better land.
Yew; itieud, KUuuu.
Her walk up Third street naturally suggested
that sho had gono either toward tho hydraulic or
tho reservoir, aud search iu those directions was
accordingly prosecuted diligently, tho water
being stirred with boards and poles, and tho
gravelly bottom dragged with boat-hooks.
About a quarter-past H o'clock the body was re
covered m tho hydraulic directly in front of tho
Kilos Tool Worse at tbo hood of Third street,
No other reason* than those contained in thu
noto oau bo assigned for thu sad act.
A smnll-Pox Remedy.
A correspondent of the Htookton (Cal.) JtcraUl
writes an follow*: "I hereby append a recipe
which has boon used to tuy knowledge iu hund

Another flemtnksceiice of nr. Wilson.
A<ir York IndtptnJtnt.
We give, ou tho authority of Mr. F. Ik Car-
E enter, a notable story of Henry Wilson that
aa never yet been published. The evening
before bis inauguration as Vice-President
bo called on Ur. tiumnur, and said: “tium
ner, can you lend mo a hundred dollars?
1 bavo not got money enough to be
inaugurated on." Ur. Sumner replied: •'Cer
tainly. It it bad been a laigo sum I might
not have been able to help you; but 1 can al
ways loud a friend a hundred dollars/' He thou
gave Mr. Wilson a check for the amount, and.
after the latter bad retired, Mr. buumer, turning
to Ur. Carpenter, remarked: “There is au
Incident worth remembering—such a cue as

Special Needs of the Hospital,
On lh« North Bide, on the corner of Burling
and Hophla streets, elands sn unprotontioui
brick structure, throo stories and basement
iicight. It is a building that has been described
in these columns, and is occupied by Kt. Joseph's
Hospital, uuo of tlio most deserving but unos
tentatious charities in tho city, and oh biioU
seemingly tho leant appreciated by tho charity*
givers of Chicago.
Tho institution is in chargn of the Bisters of
Charity of the Bocioty Ht. Vincent do Paul,
who devote thoir lives to caring for tho sick and
helpless weak-minded. Their mission on earth
is truly a holy one, giving over life's service to
tho chastened of the GreabMastor above, hoping
for thoir reward in tho hereafter,—in the groat
world to come.
Birch in brief is tho institution visited by a
TmncNC reporter yesterday, who, in making n
tour through tho hospital, found that it is also a
puvato asylum for tho eurablo insane, and a
specialty is mado of tho treatment of nervous
diseases, tho most interesting of which wore
taken note of. Tho upper floor is used for
operating rooms, clinical lectures, and Insane
wards.
A sin monr.
In ono of IboßO looraa was tho pitiable wreck
of a man, -13 years of ago. lie was suffering
from partial induration, or hardening of the
bruin, following a homorrhago of tho brain,
which occurred about four toon months ago m
Waterloo, Wis., whore tho man bad held a re
sponsible position, Tbo rcsultof tbo induration
is aparalyzaliouof tbo outiro toft side, tongue,
and lips, with a complete loss of tho faculty of
speech (aphasia), with contraction of tho mus
clea of tho extremities, drawing up tho arm,
band, and foot, and placing them in a turned and
deformed position.
Tho intellect of this man baa remained unim
paired, but
THE EMOTIONS
aro very excitable.—to such an extent that tbo
patient would cry when spoken to. 110 also had
great diillculty in swallowing, a partial paralysis
of tho muscles of deglutition also having taken
place. At times, also, ho becomes exceedingly
irritable, presenting altogetbor a pitiable and
deplorable sight, although a not altogether
hopeless case, as within tho past two weeks
of his residence in tho hospital ho baa
so fur recovered as to .bo ablo to control par
tially tho movements of the tougue and lips,
and tho power of speech to tho degree of ortlc
olating iaqmto a distinct whisper, and thereby
making known his wants aud condition in
telligibly. This patient baa apparently been
used to writing very rapidly, but in consequence
of his disease Ins writing is now illegible, ills
condition is improving.
Tho next floor is used for female wards, pri
vate patients, and nervous diseases
generally. In tho nervous ward are
at present five eases. one that of
an aged woman, 63 years old, who seems halo
and hearty, manages to haro a good appetite,
and says uho needs no physician, for she is too
old to have any good done to her by medicine.
Hho is patiently wailing for the call from the
Lord, and quito child-iiko and voluble, bho is
suffering from tho general debility produced by
old ago, her features being furrowed with wrin
kles, but boaring the imprint of a mind contented
and at pcsoo with all mankind.
locomotor ataxia.
In this ward are three of tho most remarkable
eases—three such as aro rarely found to
gether—side by side. They aro cases
of locomotor ataxia. Tho French term, as de-'
scribed by Duchoono, of Boulogne, is known
among physicians as at&xio locoraotrice. As
stated above, there are tbreo eases at present
confined in tbo hospital, which is unusual, and
yet more rare is the fact of finding them all
among women, as the disease is or much more
frequent occurrence among men.
Thodisoaso is in a majority of ca*es by in
experienced observers, and oven medical men,
regarded as a form of paralysis, which it is not.
It is indeed a very curious sigbt to see a patient
who is able when in a sitting position to push
vigorously with tho foot, sufficiently so an to
push away a chair with a heavy man resting in
it, across tho floor, and who is yet uuablo to
walk, except with great difficulty, or sometimes
oven to stand without assistance.
ANOTHER NAME.
Tho disease is known as- sclerosis, and is an
affection of tho posterior portion of the spinal
cord, attended with a loss of sensibility, as
a result of which tho power of co-ordi
nating muscular action is diminished, tho pa
tient losing tho ability to maintain his or her
equilibrium. Another interesting fact is, that
thu pdlicut is unablu to stand with oyes closed,
apparently becoming top-heavy aud falling. Tho
assistance of tho sense of sight being absolutely
necessary to supply thu dolkioncy occasioned by
the loss of feeling.
THE CAUSE or THE DISEASE.
Thin disease is tho direct result of excessive
muscular action, as acousonuouco of which in
flammatory action iu cortaiu portions of the
spinal-cord wfth secondary degenerations takes
placo. Ik is ono of the careen entailed upon the
victims of n life of drudgery or hard labor. As
an illustration:
OKE OF THE VICTIMS.
Ono of tho patients now under treatment at
thu hospital, for nine years consecutively, lor a
period covering ton hours each day, worked at
tho ironing tablo of a laundry iu ouo of our best
known hotels, all that time standing immediate
ly over a aiosm-coll. which was constantly kept
hut. Sho is literally helpless, and hor mind is
shattered. Hho is tho poor wreck of a oooe
healthy woman, who, having worked out hor
strength and health for hor employer, and a mis
erable pittance, lies to-day upon a charitable
hospitable pallet guarded over by tho good
nurses who inhabit tho hospital.
THE DEADLY SBWINO-MAOUINB TREADLE.
Tho noxt cane is aleo one for oommissoration
and pity. It is a picture of Hood's “Bong of
tho Blurt 11 brought into a terrible reality, ex
cept that tho “stitching,” which thu poet so
feelingly mentions, was dono by tho sowing
machine, and U has brought this terrible
disease.
Tho victim is a Strode, who, for sovon long
and weary years, worked tho treadle of a sew
ing-machine iu making clothing for a wealthy
dothing-huuso, receiving therefor her miserable
weekly stipend. To-day sho lies helpless, tho
victim of avanco aud wealth, a touching lesion
of tlio uuapprociatlon of the effects of manual
labor on wumau. Hhe bears up wonderfully un
der her misfortune, aud hopes to recover her
health somo day.
A IIBMARKAULB OABB.
The third and last case Id tbo ward Is that of
a young scarcely 20 years old. Hbeisau
unusually young subject to suffer from the
disease, and no cause cau bo assigned for it, un
less it bo that prolific source of human maladies,
malaria. There is no record to bo found of one
so young suffering from locomotor ataxia, and
tho writers ou nervous diseases have failed to
iUsoover a similar cs#©. The patient is a beauti
ful and intelligent-looking girl, born iu Canada,
and a relief patent.
OTIIEU I'UCCUAU FEATURES.
Another feature of this disease n that, where
It attacks tbo upper portion of tbo spinal cord,
tho i-cnao of touch in tbo lingers is as a oouse
(pionco lost. Tbo patient is unablo with the
eyes shut to touch any designated portion of tho
body with tho Unger, being unable sometimes to
oome within several inches of tbs spot aimed at.
Saving written so much of iwculiar nervous dis
eases, lot us take a look-in on the unfortunate
INtUNB PATIENTS.
Those whom (tod has bereft of reason aa well
as chastened with disease, are indeed worthy the
commiseration and attention of the publio.
There are a number of cases in the hospital, but
oulv four, and they tho principal ones, will be
cited, as they are all of interest and wblely dif
ferentia their natures, causes, and condition.
AN EXALTEU MANIAC.
One case Is that of a young girl, subject to
mania with exaltation, whose peculiar fancy la,
that she is smarter than all the rest of the world,
who are, as a consequence, envious of
bur, and wish to shut her up in
an asylum to gratify their- spite.
Her time is occupied mainly lo doing fancy
work, at wblob the la very ekilUol, varying her
occupation by maintaining an extensive but oue

Tho next cane is that of a young girl, J!> years
ol ago. a wad but interesting one. Hho ih of a
very mild and gentle disposition, and sympathy
Is aroused for her at once, aw one is brought in
contact with her. Her history in sorrowful nnd
nliort. Hlio is tho victim of epilepsy, superin
duced by tho maltreatment and brutality of a
drunken mother, who rendered tho chilli’s hfo
wretched during hor early years ey the most
cruel heatings about tho head, and *tbo unnatu
ral mother finally ended her earner by
rinrnm urnTunoAT
in tiro presence of her child.
Tills terrible scone Hcems lo have been Indeli
bly impressed upon the child's brain, and is fre
quently reproduced as the precursor of epileptic
convulsions. This cbild furnishes an illustra
tion of tho beneficial effects of tho now remedy,
nitrite of amyl, in epilepsy. Hbo is provided
wita a small phial containing a few drops of this
drug, upon a Hmall hit of sponge, after tho
fashion of tho vinaigrette, which ebo lias boon
taught to inbalo upon the approach of tho pre
monitory symptoms of a convulsion, tho effect
being lo arrest tbo paroxysm immediately. Her
improvement has been very decided within a
few mouths past.
OTUEIt CASES.
There aro other cases of nervous diseases,
but none that offer auy specially interesting
features other than those above noted. In other
wards gone through by tho reporter there were
several cases of tvphotd fever, all of which
aro improving. Then there ate a number of
sot ions surgical cases, Including simple and com*
pound fractures, and several former amputa
tions, all of which, without exception, are doing
well, and the condition of tho patients is gener
ally good, reflecting credit upon tho skill and
assiduity of tho curses.
Before concluding tills article, more than a
mere panning good word should bo said fur St.
Joseph's Hospital, It is eminently a charitable
institution. No one, no mutter how poor ho or
she may bo, is overdriven from its shelter while
suffering. Croud is immaterial, and tho I'rosby
teriau or Methodist conflnod by disease or injury
within its walls io allowed the consolation of
hla own ministers Tho institution needs money.
The Sinters of Charity of Ht. Vincent do Raid
have tho special mission o! canng for tho eiok.
The community is peculiarly fitted for tho call
ing by original intention and life-long training
tn tho wards of hospitals and lunatic asylums in
every quarter of tho globe.
THESE CiUOD wourjr
.deserve the sympathy of all. No sectarian feel
ing should limit their income, as their doors are
oi on to all alike. Their present resources are
still more heavily taxed by tho onerous demands
of tho Relief Association, which compels them
to keep a bed on tho interest of fcl.ODl) per year,
which is wholly Inadequate, os it costs over a
dollar a day to keep a patient, including medi
cine and attendance. Tho funds of tho Relief
Society aro meant for tho nee of charity, hut,
usod iu this way, they only hamper it. Bet
tor by for to bavo one patient well cored
for than two neglected. Tho Hospital, hr all
moan*, should bo dono Justice bv. And. then,
tho Bisters labor under another groat difficulty.
Patients am often brought to the Hospital un
der tho proteuso of paying, and do pay one
week’s boatd in advance; stay fox months, per
haps, until they aro cured, and never pay anoth
er cent. In this way the Slaters are greatly
hampered, for it needs money to ram for the
sick. Tho private rooms la the Hospital are
very neat and comfortable, and cleanliness pre
vails everywhere. Lot tho charitably inclined
help this ndblo charity,which u truly worthy aud
iu need, as. besides having hardly income enough
to sustain it, is largely in debt. At present only
about one-liftlx of the patients are paying ones.
AIDING THE CENTENNIAL
lb tht Editor of J hi Chitnyo Tribunt
lUitAiioo, Sauk Co., Wis.. Nov. 30.— The Cen
tennial Commission having issued a oall lo tbo
citizens of tbo Republic for $3,000,000, that
amount being yet necessary (u make our Na
cioual Exhibition a success ; and the ladies of
tbo Slate Centennial Society at Madison having
resolved to replenish the exhausted treasury of
tbo National Commission by dunating a painting
to the Stato of Wisconsin or its Historical So*
doty, it was resolved, at an enthusiastic mooting
In this village last evening, that wo would assist
our sisters of the Stato Capital in (bo laudablo
endeavor alluded tu. At first, several of our
shrewdest financiers could not understand bow
a gift lo tbo Historical Society would loud
to cancel a portion of tbo $13,000,(100 deficiency;
'others, of a mozo patriotic turn of miud, wore
equally anxious to know in what manner they
wero to bo benefited by bodily exertions or a
private subacniitlon in aid of tbo Historical
fond. Tbo disaffected wore enlightened and
gratified, by being informed that our sbaro of
tbo National Centennial expenses was to bo can*
celed by a loan of the painting to Us Art-Gallery;
and that the individuals who assisted in purchas
ing it were to bo immortalized by baring tbeir
names placed upon an imperishable scroll, which
was to bo attached to the frame of the picture.
This ;cheap and easy method of wtthug our
sbaro of tbo Centennial debt, and receiving a
guaranteed immortality, proving satisfactory
to tbo majority of those present,
the meeting adjourned, with the under
standing that the ofilcere would moot on
the following day in order to perfect arrange
ments for a ’7O dance soil an old-time food. The
question now arises, Can the National Commis
sion afford to qralmtotißlt/ advertise tbo artist
who Is to paint our picture, and, at the same
tlino. assist in immortalizing those who pay bis
bill? Moro cbef-d'omvrea have aloady been
offered to tbo National Art-Qalicrr than it can
accommodate; in foot, the )>aiutinga are eo
numerous that a-Committee of experts is to bo
appointed to select the most meritorious, there
not being sufficient spaoo to accommodate them
all. Then, again, tbo gontlomeu and artists who
make tbo offerings I have alluded to, do not
consider they aro conferring a favor upon tbo
institution, but know they are receiving one by
having their names or productions advertised to
tbe world. Tbo fact is, cash, and cash alone,
will meet tbo emergency. This being tbo case,
tbo money appropriated by our Legislature, and
that raised by private subscription, abould be
paid into tbo treasury of tbo National Society;
there it will do tbo most good. If ibis fa done,
then tbo ladies of Wisconsin will be credited
with a noble and patriotic act, Instead of bring
ing ridicule upon our Commonwealth by tbe
paltry loan that 1 have alluded. 8.

AN UNWRITTEN WAR-CHAPTER.
A Story of fho ** I’onno Negotia
tion*” nt tho Clifton House,
What Those Interviews Were In-
tended to Accomplish.
Cmmp/.nJ. »H Stv York Tiff**.
Niaoatu Tau.h, Nov. 30.—A casual visit to
thin now lonely nnd deserted resort has reminded
me of a very cur,ous and rather startling epi
soda ( t tho War. which wan narrated to mo hero
Homo three yearn unco by a gentleman who hel l
a prominent an 1 confidential pus.lion on Gen.
Ijix’h staff while tho latter was in command in
New York. Thin gentleman in now, or was qtillo
recently, a resident of jtatavia. I send you htn
name with this, and avow my own confidence in
the perfect truth of his Hlnr|. It in one of the
hundreds of unwritten chapters of tin necr»t
history of the War, which, if puhtinhol, mi,da
give a now aspect to many important features of
the groat struggle. At pages CCI-3 of Greeley's
“American Conflict,” Yol. 2,may ho found that
author's account of the famous peace negotia
tions of the summer cf I'rOt at Niagara Tails.
At page CG7 following, relative to tho outside
scenes at the Democratic National Convention at
Chicago, iv tho following language, so pertinent
to the subject of this letter that it becomes its
almost accessary Introduction:
None can say how many of the vast gathering who
yelled aiwrit t« such ulWxikm know taai th»y wsr*
surrounded by and mlinl up with Rebel uiTiccr* fr*j»L
from Canada, who Lad sent here c-ipre«ly to co
operate with renaln domestic traitors, high in ofllcc in
tin- sveret organization aforesaid, in the sudden tuus
tcrlntf of a force, mainly of “American Knights” (lo
rnlly known as “ ILinJ which should first Iterate
thee.i.-uo Rebel captive* than held In Camp Douglas,
n«ar tliat city; theneu niihiug with rapidly augmented
number* tothe achievement of a simLar surccn* at the
j ri* m camp near Indianapolis—thus raising the siege
of Richmond and Atlanta by ** a lire in the rear ’’—but
Hut such a coiiHjiirac-y Lad for weeks existed; that
many then in Chicago were heartily engaged In it;
and that, but for tho extraordinary astuteness, rigi
lance, and energy of Col. 11. J. Sweat, then to com
mand over Camp Douglas, there would Lave bocu at
least a desperate attempt to oxecuto the bloody pro
gramme—are fact* which rest on testimony too posi
tive, and drawn from 100 many independent sources,
to bn distrusted.
In a foot-note tho author says still farther oa
Iho aatao subject :
Weeks Utcr, with larger muni and a better organi
zation, the coniplralorM had prepared for an outbreak
uq Iho day of the Presidential election, etc.
Tim story of my Informant, itself a record of
personal experience, conclusively shows that Iho
plans of tho Rebel conspirators bad a*, that time
another object, and odo well calculated to throw
tho whole S'ortii into consternation and dismay.
The scheme happily failed, hut tta success might
have lod to another and very dilTereut result of
tho War than that which Providence vouchsafed
us. My informant shall tell hie olurr in his own
words.
Early in Julv, 1861, and before anything had
got into the newspapers about peace negotia
tions at Niagara, private intelligence reached
Gen. Dix’s headquarters at New York of a
gathering of eminent Rebels at the Clifton
House. Secret dispatches from Richmond—and
it is a fact not generally known that a week
rarely passed without oar Loins furnished with
such—had fur some tirno foreshadowed that
something of importance was being concocted
iu Cana la against the national cause. Many
men in official and scral-ofllciul positions in tho
Confederacy were known to have repaired
thither, and the nir of Richmond—so our spies
reported—was full of intimations of "good
news from Canada.” These expectations were
afterward partially justified by tho piracies upon
tho lakes, iho attempt,to bum Now York, tho
•• infected-clothing ” plot, the attempted re
lease of Rebel prisoners, etc., Strange
to say, tho darkest and most hidcotH
item of the whole list of objects of
this border conspiracy has never been put in
print. There were reasons, as you shall hear,
for suppressing it, bb far as that was possible
dating the War; there can bo none that I know
of. Gen. Dix being ignorant of the designs of
tho Rebels in that quarter, and appreciating the
importance of securing trustworthy intelligence
on the subject, dispatched me to discover all I
could in ray own way.
I wont to Niagara, and—in cltic.ea'o clothes of
course—crossed Iho river and put up at the
Clifton House. There 1 stayed until the un
called “ peace negotiations ” were finished, and
until I bad learned tho real object of tho as
semblage of Confederates there. Many I met
whom 1 had known in former years, but it so
happened that I saw no oao who know of my
oflicial connection with Gen. Dix. 1 wo*
thus enabled to find out all that any man
of ordinary acuteness could have dis
covered, wbopo mind was not led
astray by the flimsy pretext of *• peace negotia
tions. 1 * That this subject was a mere pretext,
intended solely as a mask to tho real designs of
tho Rebel •• Commissioners," I have positive and
certain knowledge. The letter to Horace Gree
ley (p. fI(H, “American Conflict,” Vol. LM. tho
so’iomn consultations with him at tho Clifton,
the filling of our papers with columns of stuff
about those negotiations, and the impossible
pence they wore thought to promise,wore all art
fully-contrived adjuncts, inteuded to lead tho
attention of the people away from the real ob
ject of tho conspiracy. Tho “ Commissioners ”
certainly succeeded in tbot. if in nothing else.
And if wo mav Judge from Greeley's remarks on
tho subject m Vol. 2of his hook, pp. OCI-5. ho
loft Niagara after his ineffectual closeting* with
Messrs. Clay, Holcombe, and Baundcra iu iho be
lief that ho had been talking with men whoso
bona lido object was to do something by way of
private treaty for tho restoration of peace.
1 remained at tho Clifton while these inter
views wore going on; 1 remained after tho de
parture of Mr. Greeley. The ** Commissioners"
still tarried; and there were other Confederates
of more or less note remaining. Ordinarily, wo
understand that a great diplomatic mission
comes to an end with the failure of its object,
and we usually look for the departure thereupon
from the scone of the treaty of those at all con
cerned in tho negotiations. It was not so hero.
There was still au apparent expectation of some
thing of tho greatest importance yet to come
manifested by the crowd of Confederates and
thoir sympathizers in and about tho Clifton. I
saw that my own mission had but Ju«t began.
Soon there came arrivals from tho American
side. Dozens of men came ami wore closeted
with the ’'Commissioners,” and interviews with
out number were held in their private apart
ment. Some of those men were unknown to mo;
some I recognized as the most bitter Copperheads
of Buffalo and neighboring cities; others, to my
snrprise, I learned to bo patriotic and influential
War Democrats. While I continued to watch
closely all that took place within myobserratlon,
one of the (< Commissioners” one morning rec
ognized me as a friend of former years and an
old party associate. Several days before I had
recognized him, but a regard for the success of
mv mission restrained mo from making myself
known. Rat when this man took-mo py tho
hand and cordially greeted mo I saw that ho
know nothing of my oflicial position and sus
pected nothing. After a few casual remarks, ho
said:
"H , you used to bo a Democrat before tlio
War."
“ V«b, ami I am one now.” I responded.
"That's right,” he said, rubbing hio hands.
"Come with mo; I hare something to tell you.
Wo are not tolling it to everybody—only to a four
to begin with—whom wo can trust.”
We walked apart, and ho deliberately pare mo
tho mam features of the infamoue conspiracy
that ho was arsisiing to organize. Its object
was no less than the assassination of President
IJucoln I Its details wore to bo arranged with
an oyo to results which ho thought certain to in*
sure the recognition of the Coufedeiaoy and the
end of tho War, The plot was to bo communi
cated to tho loading Democrats of tho North,
aud they were to assist In making the organiza
tion perfect. The plans wero to bo secretly and
quietly matured, and the fatal blow was to bo
struck on the night before election. This, it
was anticipated, would produce tho utmost con
sternation throughout tho North. Tho nows of
tho President's assassination reaching the pooplo
on tho morning of election, thousands of He
publicans would fail or refuse tovolo their
electoral ticket, not knowing who the choice
of tho electors would bo. It was nut
thought iiossible, under these circum
stances. that the Republican doctoral ticket
could be cboson. The party would bo utterly
demoralized: without time or opportunity to
consult, aud bewildered by their novel and dis
tressing position, tho result would certainly ho
so groat a falling off of their votes as to give all
the "close” Stales to the Democrats. Tho
election of a Democratic President would thus
bo made certain, with a consequent cessation of
hostilities and a treaty of peace between the
North aud the Bomb, which would eventually ln«
sure the Independence of the latter.* Ho flo
ished his revelation by asking mo what I
thought of tho plot. Hupproaetug idy Indigna
tion, I told him that it appeared impracticable ;
that leading Democrats could nut be induced to
Join in it, aud that secrecy was almost impossi
ble. Us differed with me, assuring me that the
conspiracy had aiready met with great favor
from many (whom ho did not name), and added
that I, of course, would sot mention it oa '' tho
other side." And. of course. I assured him lhat
I would not. Ho ended by paving that ho wifiid
lilio to talk with mo further on ti.o subject, hut
that about that hour ho un< 1 In-' C'-Hcagucs wore
to men a very <llhtinin(io'l .%>* York Perrin
cunt. I allied h : a name, ami lie readily annwoo 1
iJf-an Kiriiniond!
’J'hat lutcnrimr look p!ac> the name dar. and I
lurried of it as soon at it wan over. il'r. Itirh
maud came from UuffVoat Hie rrquent of minor
more of the lliroo, unadvised of what they
"bind to c imnunlcato Ho heard the i ifamons
plot that had been whispered to me. ana prompt*
ly declined to linr anything further, or to ho in
any maimer concerned in it. JIo further d>l i
there high-minded Southrons that the loyal He*
mocraav of llio North would neither engage iu
nor ccuutcuarien any schcmo of murder; and for
himself, lin told them, i:i tho most emphatic
language, that if the consniraev wan not imme
diately stonned, an 1 r.ll with people
on Inc ollur udo of the nvi r dlneoufiuu< d, !io
would ruhdrh the whole plot in tho buffalo ju
pcr.i tho next morning!
That, of course, ended tho matter. Whether
thin conspiracy hud any direct relation to that
other oiiii with tho sanio ob)tci, which uuhap] t*
iysuccec.led in Aurii, IBIS. I cannot nay.
1 haHtonod back to Now York and reported all
I had loatued to Gan. Hix, an I ho wuit paisun
ally to Washington with tho intelligence. And
hero tho Inquiry will occur to everybody, Why
wa.» nrt this plot published to the country, and
| optilar indignation aroused ? It wan, in fact,
ina io the subject of & Cabinet conference, and
this view urn urged Ly tho majuiily. llity
anmed that the revelation would h« a i owerfu’;
stimulus to the war feeling, and wou'd strength
en thn national eanso. Tho cooler judgment of
100 President himself decided against it. and
1 am inclined to think ho was right, it
wan perhaps tho gloomiest poiiod of the
war. Grant wan apjaienlly bafllol before
itichmond. Hhorman was still onmdo Atlanta,
oud tho Ucbels were raid ,ng through Maryland
and Southern I'ennsylvarna mid Uiraatsnimr the
Capital itself, lo pubhr-u a; Mich a lime the
news of tho detection of so audacioun and tre
mendous a conspiracy would, tho President
thought, stiiko terror or abject despondency to
the hearts of thousands of ciireouragod
L'nionistß, and produce a paralyzing effect in
some <jdarters. So it was nupprciHed.
I have only to add that tho facts here detailed
