If bis victim had died shortly after the shooting,, the shootei would doubtless have been tried and hanged. Should Mr. Garfield recover from his wound, the attack on him makes only a case of assault to kill. Were the President to die at the present time, his having . lingered so .long between life and death would compel a jury to decide whether death was due to the bullet, to the treatment of his physicians, or to the pattern's unfavorable hygienic surround ings, and what that jury's verdict would be is past finding out. In the event of the President's failing to die within ' "a year and a day" from the date of his injury, the comiaon . law comes to-the relief of the assassin and presume ; an other cause of death, Tand the crime -is once more merely an assault.

' - AN ENCOURAGING PICTURE. An eastern exchange, in an article rel ative to the future of the South, under the caption of "Glimpses of the New Dixie,".says: "The South of 18S1 is in a transition state. A new generation not bora under the curse of slavery ,1s coming into possession of its fields, its shops, and its avenues of t radc and trans portation. Idleness, - which viv once thought the only honorable condition for white men, is more and more de spised as unmanly-. The young men are not afraid of work, and many of them are achieving by tho labor of their own hands and braius greater results than their raiaera obtained from, tha unwil ling : toil pf slaves!

Altogether ' we must regard the appearance of the states south of the Potomac and the Ohio aaTery hopeful. Their polities have not advanced as fust as their industry.

The doctor was asked if it . was not a well established theory that when " . .IRRITATION PRESENTED . itself in the form of a swellinz. relief al ways followed suppuration. He admit ted that such " was ordinarily the case, but in the present condition, said he. suppuration is not, desired, because of the possible injury which might follow.

'.The doctor con sidered the glandular complication the most .serious feature of the case at the present time. ' Dr. Woodward expressed the opinion as he left the mansion about 2 p. m. that the President was doing as well as could bo expected. Another of the attending surgeons informed a friend during the afternoon that be viewed the case in a more hopeful liht to-day than he had for several days past. When asked what be thought , about ' the glandular trouble, he said that while ho should have preferred not UThave met with lhat complication, he did not now consider it or serious importance, Aa Exploration of the President's MTonBd. Washington, D. C' August 20. I an interview wilh a representative of the press this afternoon JJr. Jiliss gave in substance tbe following account of the recent - exploration of the President's wound by means of a flexible rubber catheter, reference to which was mad for the first time tn . tlie noon bulletin to day. Since the operation of the 8th of August no drainage tube lias been used in the ; wound. At the morning and evening dressings, however, a small flexi ble rubber tube about a quarter of an bach in diameter was introduced and a Week solution of carbolic acid and water forced through it to cleanse the wound and bring out the accumulated pus. Up to yesterday morning, the surgeons had been unable to pass tbe tube beyond the point distant throe and a half . inches from the mouth of the lost incision. At that point it always met with an obstruc tion, which could not be overcome willi outan exertion of force, and force the surgeons did not think it prudent to em. ploy, -i The apparent permanence of this obstruction finally led the surgeons to believe the depth of the wound had heal ed, or at least the track of the ball had healed at a point where the rubber cath eter was stopped.. A few days since, however, it was noticed that the quantity of pes discharged by the wound atone of tbe regular dressings was greater than the quantity of water which, the wound would bold after the pus had been re moved. This clearly indicated one of two things, either that the pus which - .:.- WAS IN EXCESS of the apparent capacity of the wound came from a concealed and unsuspected cavity or that the surgeons were mis taken in supposing the depths: of the wound to have healed. : It also indicat ed that the obstruction which prevented the passage of the catheter did not inter fere witn lb& now of pus outward from the deeper and - unhealed interior. : The low temperature of the patient negatived the theory of a pus cavity and the sur geons came to the conclusion that tbe deeper parts of the wound must still be open and - that the excess of pus which could not otherwise . bo accounted for must have come from there, notwith standing the apparent- obstruction en countered by the catheter.- On. Thurs day Dr. Bliss made, a long and careful examination of the wound but was still unable to get the tube deeper in than about three and a half inches. On Fri day morning, however, during the dress ing of the wound, a small piece of cellu lar tissue,- a piece about as large as the end of one's little finger, became detached land was washed out with, the pus. This fragment of tissue bad apparently been half detached for. some time, and had acted as a sort of rude valve at the point where tho track of the ball seemed to be obstructed, closing it against the catheter and against water; from the outside, but opening to pressure from the inside and allowing an routflow ;ef pus from the deeper part. of- the wound. Upon the removal of this fragment of tissue Dr. Bliss again introduced the flexible rob ber tube, and finding that it no longer - j ; ENCOCHTERKD RK8I8TANCB, pasaed it on a already stated to the dis tance of twelve and one-half inches. Al most the entire track of the ball was thus thoroughly washed out aud cleans ed.! The pus which came from the deep er part -l'"4fae , wowad, , although not greater in quantity, was white and per fectly healthy In character. It was, ia fact, better pas than that secreted by the more snperUeial part of tbe wound.' If any Septic taint has - passed into the patient's blood if originated not in the pns which haa been entirely protected from air, but from that secreted in the separating surface between tbe recent obstruction and the mouth of tbe incis ion. Nothing new with regard to the location of the ball -'was' learned; Dr. Bliss said,; ' from the passage of the .' catheter to -ithis unusual depth.' The tube wa so soft and flexible that one could only judge ; approximate ly the direct ion which it had taken. - It pauned downward -and- forward toward a point m the abdomen where the ball had always been supposed to tie,' and that was the most tba could be affirmed. Dr. Hamilton-said he thought the- end of the tube racked about three inches of reaching the ball and the intervening pace had "healed j-In his (Fr Bliss) opinio, however, the' 'distance from the end of the tube to the -'ball was hot so great. In reply to a question inregardTtrted utruL, fluui which the Presides be bee reported V he suffer ing, be said emphatically that tbe Pres ident has not' on his body a single sore, swelling or-vbraskni of any kiml, whh the exception of a swelling 'under the ar, caused y inflanHnarioe of the parMid gland, andronods in the back - CArKO BTTHrf nfl.T-PT . .r .i " ami keife.- iaffanmiatfoavtf the parotid gtaad has not, hesafd.diminished mnch since 'yesterday.1- Tbe 'swelling of - the surrounding part has eubsided ao thai the expression of the face is again natur-' a), but the gland itself is sifd trouble. ! some. Scattering applications of collo dion and iodoform have been made to it, but ft ia impossible to say yet whether suppuration can ' be prevented. Mean time, me patient suaers to some extent from stiffness of the jaw and from the accumulation of phlegm in the throat. Upon being asked wuetner tbere were ai'y indications yet In the President case of malaria, he replied in the negative. Quinine had been given, be said, in eve gram aosea, at in tervals, bnt , rather for its general toinie effects than because any par ticular symptoms, seemed 10 call for it." The President, in his opinion, is not of tbe intermittent type, and ia not influenced by malara. In conclusion. he aaid the wholo question of the fu ture of tbe President's case turns now upon the ctomacb. if that organ can receive and assimilate food enough to make good tbe present drain upon the system and enable the patient to regain his strength he will stand a fair chance for recovery. If on the contrary the stomach again becomes intolerant of nourishment, and entirely refuses for any .great length of time to receive food, the cosseaueccc may be fatal. At pres ent all indications are that the stomach is recovering its tone, and upon this fact, he said, we base our hopeful anticipa tions. ... ANNOUNCEMENTS.
