Though in the Oc tober number reaching the end of Its first year, this publication has already fairly won Its rank as the best of its kind Im the country.

The only danger is, that the publication is gotten tin with so much care and expense ns to be too Rood to last. hi. Nicholas.

If it is to give you a few more of my reminiscences, In,iicun ;ltr;,,ia administration, the Cabi- tie shape of a truthful (whatever may be its other merits) account of an old timo trip 1 made from Chicago to New York. It was In the latter part id ls;J7. I left Chl caco with a favorite riding horse of mine, cro-sing the lake to Michigan City in a boat Tin n, with my animal nicely groomed, I was off for Niles, but before I got out of Indiana the became leg weary and lay down and tlied. I to:k off saddle and bridle and lelt with tears in my eyes, but as I had about me a com plica ted lot of lied Dog, Yellow Dog and Wild Cat. amounting to about five thousand dollars enough to float me across the St. Jo without a boat I couldn't afford to stop. I pushed on to Niles, where I got a square meal and a good night's rest Next morning I went to the bank a building about the size of an or dinary smoke house and presented a lot of notes for redemption. I!ut they were made payable one year after date, and I guess that rear hasn't come yet I took the stage to Cold water, and thoagh but 20 miles distant It took all day to make It I had an Impression the stage hindered me on purpose. But arrired there I Tisited the bank .with the lame result as at Nile. Then I bought horse tad started in search of some other "banks." Soma I found so lo - cated tlmt tley couM lu approac-Lid only in a boat. My liorse got lus rxt m a corduroy bridge and put Ins ankle out of joint, so that I left him, wllli saddle, bridle and spurs, hoping some one would have companion on bini. Fussed on to a cabin and tras dincti.'d to the t.iif. roml. where I waited two dnvs before the r, rmn If arrived with six nuvcii-1 gers. among whom were young lieaubien from Chicago, whom I knew, and three Indian Chiefs on their way to Washington to talk with the "Great rather." We had a lively time in that coach for several days. Two of the In dians repeated the speeches they were tu make in Washington, and vouue ISuaubieu was as noisy as any of them. We made Ypsilanti, where ve struck the only railroad in the sialo that ran by steam It was built on stumps cut oil evenly about two feet above the ground. It was sixty miles to Detroit, an J rather contrary to my expecta tion tho locomotive took us through safe. The Indian Chiefs had a couple of hundred ponies for sale in Detroit, and they presented Heaubien hihI me with one each, and we bought the necessary equipments. His destination was Quebec, Canada, and mine was New York. Hut it m in I e little ditlerence to me which way I went, aud we passed over tho river together, and at the first tavern we came to stopped and took a drink. As we came out to remount we were arrested and pHt iuto a corral, ponies and all. Iieaubien wrote to his uncle in Detroit, and the old gentleman came over with passes for both of us. As they had to be shown and countersigned every few miles, I lelt my young friend ami passed back to "the land ofciviliza- L.(m - I returned my pony to the Indians anil took passage in the little steamer "(ien. Urady" for Toledo. The reason why they were so par- titular in Canada w v that it was in the midst of the "l'atriot War." There were but few passengers on the hteam cr, and on the way we stopped at Mource, where about IiOO men were concealed in the store house, who at once seized the boat to im press it in the Patriot service. I slipped ashore and took a last fond look at the craft as it steamed away, glad to get oil" so easily. A lew days later the news came that she had been seized and burned, and all ou board made prisoners. I stayed at Monroe a couple of days, and then took the stage for Toledo, but as it broke down at the end rf the first mile I made the rest of the distance on foot, arriving ns muddy as a hog out of its wallow ami altogether iu a sorry plight. Next day, after being fed and washed up, I walked on to I'errysburg on the Maumee; stayed a tlay or two, and bought an other horse, which I got through to New York. Alter a tedious journey through Ohio 1 reached liulfalo, where I stopped at the Eagle Hotel, theu the headquarters of Major General Win field Scott and his staff. Found the socie ty so good that I stopped two weeks, dining at the same table w ith the General, who oue day sent the waiter to my seat with hu long-necked bottle, aud tapping me on the shoulder said "Gen. Scott's compliments." I filled my glass aud drank It oil with a military salute to the General. I had never spoken to him before, though I had frequently saluted him in pass ing; but the incident made nie a big toad In the F.aglo Hotel puddle, and everybody want ed to make my acquaintance. There were in liulfalo at that time Four dis tlngubdied men Gen. Scott, (Sen. Van Matrr of the Patriot Army, Major I'liderhi", sent out afterwards with Gen. McClellau to the Crimea, and Mr. llathbone, the Patriot leader, in jail between the two hotels. As the people rone iu mass to liberate him, he walked out on the balcony ami iu beautiful language told the people not to do it, for if they liberated him he would return to his prison. It would be tedious to ilei-eribe the rest of my trip to New York, where I arrived in due time with no notable occurrence by tho way; and 1 will close with just one incident because it had n slight connection with something re lated above. It was in is 12, 1 think, that I was standing on the railroad platform in Ilaltimoro when Gen. Scott drove up nnd alighting from his carriage with a bundle of dispatches in his hand asked if there was any gentleman in the crowd who would carry them to tho Secretary of War at Washington. I stepped up and said, "General, I would like to do myself the honor to carry your dispatches to the Secretary of War." He took me by the hand and gave nie a hearty shake, saying, "I think I recognize in you an old acquaintance." I mentioned the glass of wine I hail taken with him at HufTalo, and he said he remembered it, adding that his house would always be open tome. I). H. I'. Wellington Letter.

These questions, of greater or less interest to the entire country, are questions of life ami net of the deceased President w ill be retained. and hundreds of officials, w ho hold places di rectly under the present Cabinet, will eat their ' bread lu peace. II the Cabinet is to be changed, many chiefs of bureau ami a large clerical force must be changed with it. For it is an unwritten law of our civil service that a new Cabinet officer may appoint his own corps of assistants. It is now pretty definitely known that there w ill be an entire change of Cabinet, but it is not believed that this change will be made before the called session of the Senate, and maybe not before the regular session of Congress. Two members of General Garfield's administration have such experience, talent and reputation that It is expected they will al most immediately reappear in public life. Mr. Windom will, It Is thought, be returned to the Senate, and Mr. Iilalne to the House, where it is believed he could easily be elected speaker. Such a course by Mr. lilalno would be a great disappointment to Mr. Kasson and other aspi- rants to this office, the third In dignity in the United States, and second la influence only to the office of President On the other hand, it is said that Mr. Blaine will be urged to retain the portfolio of state, sd that Conkllng will be made Secretary of the Treasury. The ap lpearance of Mr. Blaine and Mr. Conkllng at the eaine table would Hcem to be an impossible spectacle, but it is said to be the wish of Presi dent Arthur to enforce harmony between these two Btalwart leaders, whose political views are entirely harmonious, and who.su antagonism Is personal. It is evident that Ohio Is no long- cr to be llic moM lavoreci nauon ai me i ""' . . ... ..... .-. ..:..! of the lnite.1 States, and the Idea is gamin?. cround that New York is as big a state a Ohio. Well, anything for a change; a Cabi net without one or two Ohio men in it will lack a long familiar monotony. Toilay I was at the jail and saw the worst execrated man In the I'nited States. "What do vou think of mv case?" said be. 1 said, "I think you will Ik: banged." "liut wait, wait," he replied, "you have not heard my side of the question." "It will make no dif ference what your side of the question may be, you arc going to be hanged." If any one thinks this was inhuman, let him remember that the capital penalty is inadequate punish ment for the crime committed, and the agony suffered by the victim, his family, and tin country.

H'uy He IM'teriiilneil to Murder tint Prcxl iient mill How He Din It. The New York Ifn-uh' of the (Itli inst. pub lishes a lengthy biography of the assassin Gui teau, dictated by himself, the only important part of which of course is that relating to his motive and manner of assassinating the presi dent. The biography is said to have been drawn from the assassin through the persup sion of district attorney Corkhill, with the promise that it thould bo published in pam phlet form and sold for Gultenu's benefit, and tho district attorney is sharply censured by the press for his breach of faith with tho assassin iu giving tho manuscript to the rtbl for publication. However that niny be, nnd how ever indiscreet it may hav6 been on the part of the prosecuting attorney, as a matter ol le gal tactics, to give to the public in advance of his trial such convincing evidence of the ac- cused's insanity, we proceed to select trom the voluminous narrative a tew striking para graphs. HliSTCONCKI-nON OF Til K ASSASSIN ATION. Alter narrating how he had applied to the President and Secretary Ulainc for the Mis sion to Austria, and finding that disposed ol, then lor the consulship at Paris, to his appli cation for which he was patiently awaiting an answer, the narrative proceeds: I conceived the idea of removing the Presi dent pending the answer, and as far as the Paris Consulship had any influence on my mind at all it would have deterred me from the act, because I expected, as a matter of fact, that I would get the Paris Consulship. After 1 conceived the ide.iot removing the President I did not go near Mr. Blame or near the Pres ident to press my application. About two or three weeks intervened from tho tune that I called at the President's when the doorkeeper said, "Mr. Guiteau, the President says it will bo impossible tor lnni to see you to day," to the timo that I conceived the idea of removing him, during which time 1 was waiting patient ly for my answer, which, as a matter of fact, 1 have never yet received. I had been pressing the President and Mr. Blaine for an answer, aud I thought that it would be better for meto keen away from them. J hey had my address, and I thought if they concluded to give me the Paris Consulship they would notify me or 1 si.ouiu see an nnnouneciueni oi ine appoint ment in tho paper, and, as I have stated, after I conceived the idea of rem viug the Presi dent 1 did not go near tLo President or Mr. limine. My conception of the idea of removing the President was this: Mr. Conkling resigned on Monday, May 10, 1SS1. On the following Wednesday 1 was in bed. 1 think 1 retired about 8 o'clock. I telt depressed and perplex ed ou account of the political situation, and I retired much earlier than usual. 1 lelt wear ied in mind nnd body, and I was in my bed uluiiit i nVlorU nnd I vn thlnbmrr ovir tho milltlnnl aitnution nnd Hin tibm tlntilwwl tlimiitrli my brain that if the President was out of the way everything would go better. At first this was a mere impression. It startled me, but the next morning it came to me with renewed force, and I began to read the papers with my eye on the possibility that the President would have to go ; and the more I read, the more 1 saw tho complication oi puoiic nnairs, tnc more was I Impressed with the necessity of re moving him. J his thing continued lor about two weeks. 1 kept reading the papers aud kept being im pressed, and the idea kept bearing and bearing and bearing down upou me that the only way to unite the two tactions ot the Republican party and save the republic from going into hands of the rebels and Democrats was to quiet ly remove the President rilF.rAUATIO.SS FOB. TIIK ( ltlMK. Two weeks after I conceived the idea my. mind was thoroughly settled on the intention to remove thu President. I then prepared my self. I sent to Bostou for a copy of my book ("Tin; Truth"), and I spent a week in prepar- uigthat. I cut out a tiaragraph anil a linoand a word hero ami there, and added one or two new chapters, put some new ideas in it, and I greatly Improved it. I knew that it would probably have a large sale on account of the notoriety that the net of removing the Presi dent would give me, and I wished the book to go out to the public in proper shape. That was one preparation for it. Another prepara tion was to think the matter all uut in detail, and to buy a revolver and to prepr-.re myself lor executing the idea. This required some two or three weeks, and I gave my entire time and mind in preparing myself to execute the conception of removing the President. I never mentioned the conception to a living soul. 1 did most ot my thinking in the park ami on the street, and I used to l'o to the Arlington and the Kiggs House daily to rend the papers. Thus prepared, his mind fullv made tin to commit the deed, his next care was to find an opportunity to put his hellish purpose into execution. The first that presented itself was while the president was at church on Sunday: I looked around for several days to try and get a good chance at him: aud one Sundav (the Sunday before bo went to Long Branch) l went to ins church m the morn inc. it is a small frame buildinir. and I stood there at the dir a moment I was a little late; the services bad progressed about one-third. I no ticed the President sitting by an open window about three fi-et irom the ground, and I thought to myself, "I hat would be a good chance to (ret him." I intended to shoot him through the back of the head and let the ball pass through the celling, in order that no one else shouia oc injured. And there could not pos slbly be a better place to remove a man than in his devotions. I had my revolver in my posaeulon when 1 first went to the church, having purchased It about ten days before the President's going to Ixmg Branch. HI. courags faded him, however, at the sticking point, and tho President returned to the white house as safe as he waa unconscious of the danger he had escaped. The next op portunity incurred at tho Baltimore depot when the President first went to Long Branch leaving his wife there and returning to Wash ington. It was, we believe, the second Satur day before the fatal Saturday on which the fa tal i-bot was fired : About twenty-five minutes after nine the President nnd his carriage and servants and friends came up. He got out of his carriage. I r tooil in the ladies' room about the middle of the room, watching him. Mrs. Garfield got out, and they walked through the ladies' room, and the presence of Mrs. Garfield deterred me Irom firing on bun. I was all ready; my mind was all made up; I had all my papers with me; I bad all the arrangements made to shoot him and to jump into a carriage and drive over to the jail. Mrs. Garfield looked so thin and tdie clung so tenderly to the President's arm that I Jul not have the heart to fire on him. He passed right through tho ladies' re ceptiou room, through the main entrance, and took the cars. Then he decided he would do the shooting when the President returned, and he met him on Monday at the depot for that purpose; but again bis cmirgo failed. Then he dogged him all week uutil Saturday, July 2d, when he knew thu Prcsidint would again start for Long Branch, and when, at last, he felt his nerves equal to the effort and II IS MIND rTI.I.Y MADK IT. I went to the depot, and I got there about ten minutes alter nine. There were three or four huckinen there who were very anxious to servo nie, when finally I noticed a colored man and I said to him, "What will you take mc out to the Congressional Cemetery for?" He says, "Well, I will take you out there for $2." "All right," said I, "if I want to use you I will let you know." I then went into the depot and took my pri vate papers which I intended for the press (in chiding a revised edition of my book, "The Truth, a Companion to thu Bible"), and step ped tip to the news stand and asked thu young man in charge if I could leave those papcis with linn a few moments, and he said, "Cer tainly;" ami he placed them up against the wall on top of some other papers. This was about twenty minutes after nine, and I went into the ladies' reception room, and 1 looked around, saw there were a good many people in the depot, and carriages outside, but I did not see the President's enrriage. I examined my revolver to sec that it was all right, and took oil' the paper I had wrapped around it to keep the moisture oil. I waited five or six minutes longer, sat down on a seat in the la dies' room, and very soon the President drove up. IIo was in company with a gentleman who 1 understand was Mr. Blaine, and I am satisfied that he was Mr. Blaine, although 1 did not recognize bun. The President seemed to bo in very earnest and private conversation with Mr. Blaine. The President got out on the pavement side and Mr. Blaine on the other sido. They en tered the ladies' room ; I stood there watch ing the President, and they passed by me. Be fore they reached the depot I had been prom enading up and down the ladies' room between the ticket oflice door and tho news stand door, and I walked up and down there I should say some two or three times, working myself up. as I knew the hour was at hand. Tho Presi dent and Air. Blaine camo into the ladies' room ar.d walked right by me; they did not notice me, as there were quite a number of ladies and children in the room. HOW THK I'llKsIDKNT FF.1.1.. There was quite a largo crowd of ticket pur chasers at the gentlemen's ticket office in the adjoining room; the depot seemed to be quite full of people. There was quite a crowd and commotion around, and the President was in the uct of passing Irom the ladies' room to the main entrance through the door. I should say he waa four or five feet from the door nearest the ticket office, in the act of passing through the depot to get on the cars. He was about three or four feet from tho door. 1 stood five or six feet behind him, right in the middle of the room, and as he was in the actor walking away from me I pulled out the revolver and fired. He straightened up and threw his head back, and seemed to be perfectly bewildered. He did not seem to know what stuck him. I looked at him ; he did not drop : I thereupon pulled again, lie dropped his head, seemed to reel, and fell over. 1 do not know where the first shot hit him: 1 aimed at the hollow of his back; I did not aim for any particular place, but I knew if I got those two bullets In his back he would certainly go. I was in a diagonal line from the President, to the north west, and supposed both shots struck. Dr. Glenn, the California wheat grower, Is unfortunate this year, bis crop amounting to only 100,01)0 sacks. This would satisfy most fanners, either in that or other states; but when the further facts are mentioned that he will have to keep iJo.OlK) sacks merely for seed for next year, and that his last crop before this was 400,000 sacks, it is evident that the year is likely to prove a losing one to the Doctor. It costs a large amount of money to run his 50,000 acre farm and the hundreds of men and horses employed on it. Advice to travelers.
