J-Tho complaint of "Citizen," which will bo' found on tho 3d page of our paper, in our estimation and those familiar with the nromisoa in nuestion. is not without much show of reason, as will appear from an obser vation of the premises.

Very respectfully, Wi. Henry Smith, Secretary of Stale. Surgeon O.' A. Judson, Superintendent : of Carver Hospital, Washingtoiv-the largest hospital in the country and a man of rare professional attainments and great experience in the class ot diseases under whicn tne wov ernor was laboring, to proceed to this city for the purpose of consultation. Surgeon' Judson accordingly arrived here about tlie 1st of August, and has devoted himself with great ability and fidelity to the case in hand. Gen eral Barr welcomed most cordially the assist ance of Burgeon Judson, and these two, in conjunction with the family physicians of the Governor and the most eminent medical gen tlemen of this city, have been almost literally sleepless in their attentions. Xhey have fouirht the malady inch by inch, and have several times thought themselves the victors, only to bo disappointed by seeine the subtle disease take a Protean turn and plunge the patient into a leanul relapse.- The original disease was spontaneous cellulitis locauy de veloped in the hand and foot from a slight in jury, followed by gangrene; in . the wounds causeu ur iimiBiuug iu uie iuui, curuuiicius and numerous abscesses. The gangrone did not set in in the cuts of the hand. It. hod entirely healed before death. The sloughing process would be arrested tor a tew days, when tne process oi granulation ana suppura tion would seem fairly to commence. But goon he would be seized by terrible congestive chills, in several of which he was though to be dying. 1 hen dark spots indicating gan irreno would reappear, calling for fresh incis- i - ,i i j . ons. ana cauBiuir tne aurffeuiis uiwu w ucs nair. The Governor has been almost literally cut to pieces. .'. Eight regular surgical opera tions have been perlormed on him, besides the opening of. threjiittrbufecles, and no less than twentv-five abscesses, Milch discharged, each one, from two table spoonfuls to a pint of matter. But the gangrenous ulcers baffled the skill of the surgeons, aitnougn tne enuro portion of the foot, from the outside of the ankle ioint to the center of tho sole had been . . - . .r t I 1 1 1 il !.,.! laid bare, tno Knueirueiv usuu, mm mu mnnu litcrally cauterized with nitric acid. Tho Rnvnmor has been a creat suffcror, but has borne these terrible operations with great he roism. For the most part he retuscd to take chloroform, telling tho surgeon : " w nen you get ready to cut tell me, and then cut, watch fner thn nnerution without a uroan. The annetito of the Governor long since 'fulled in n-reat part and he has been kept . . upon stimulants, ne was oi course greanv reduced in flesh, his extremities being dread fiillv attenuated, his hands looking like birds' claws. For some time he has been irrational frnm the effects of the disease, but with oc casional lucid intervals, in which his intellect shone out with all its accustomed clearness, and in which he gave his attention to the more pressing thoughts pertaining to the du ties of his office. He held many conversa tions with Snrgeon Barr in relerence to the noaihle fatal issue of the disease, and talked with great Calmness and solemnity about the realities of death and the future. After seve ral hours of deep stupor, the Governor awoke about nine o'clock Monday evening, and was nlnihed in his risrht mind for several hours. Until midnight he conversed with his family and physicians a pleasant, refreshing, prec ious conversation to an cimcerneu, u rujjuri, of which is given elsewhere. No one can overestimate the value whioh the revelations of ilinaa lirief houti will have for all time in the mincfS'of the bereaved family.

The Cleveland Leader gives the following account of the last illness and closing scenes in the life of the late Governor of Ohio : On the 29th of June the Governor came to this citv to recuperate. He had then been suffering a week or more from a foot and , i i -i j:ij v. nana made aura in wve umuuer uciaircu uj Surseon Barr to the Secretary of War. We reproduce the diagnosis of the Surgeon, writ ten July zotn: To be brief, in the first place he had been much broken down by overlabor and anxiety since the death of President Lincoln. About five or six weeks since he slightly injured his foot by stepping on a small pebble one evening : L 1. I. - ' j ' 1 nn inmrv wim;u un Kumiuatm iu ire biiuuiv a bruise or sprain of the foot, and to rest that foot walked about for a week after, leaning heavily on a cane, which produced the same condition in his left hand. Violent inflamation of the periosteum and entire cellular structure of both hand and foot followed, with phagadenio sloughing and gan grene of the soft structure, which was followed with much irritative fever and deterum death of some of the bones of the toes, and also frequent ; hemorrhages from sloughing of smau arteries ana enormous aosccsses in au- ferent parts of the limbs aad body. He was at his home in Cleveland at the time of the most violent onset of the attack. Not appre hending so serious a matter, I had, three days before he telegraphed me to see him, advised him to go home and rest, and nnrse his sores. Immediately on seeing him the hrst time, on consultation with his family physician, I ad vised free, deep, and numerous incisions in his hand and foot These gave him great re lief, but, owing to the condition of his system and tho viruiency ot tne atucn, mucn siougn- ine and lreauent hemorrhages lollowcd; and. as I supposo, by absorption, morbid material through the lymphatics, or from great pros tration or poverty of blood, followed these terrible abscesses Surgeon Barr's treatment was approved by Surgeon General Barnes at Washington, but such was the Secretary's interest in the Gov ernor, he requested Surgeon Barnes to detail o'clock, when the great soul of the patriot and statesman, John Brough, was borne from the sufferings and sorrows of the earthly life, to tho rewards and giones ot an lmmunui existence. the closing scene. The closing scene in the life of Governor Rrnno-b n described to us by an eve witness. are full of interest and pathos. On Monday evening at -about nine o clock, the Governor awakened irom tne liisensiuiniv in wiucu nu had luin for some days, and at the request of his family, who gathered around his bedside, Surgeon General Barr informed him that nil which human sum coura uo lor mm nun ueun attempted, nnd in vain, and that now he was in tho hands of Almighty God. He colild not live forty-eight hours, ine uovcrnor- was greatly shocked at this announcement, and, looking uenerai iarr in wo mc, mwra u"" to repeat what he had said. General Burr again stated that he had not forty-eight hoHrs to live. The Governor then requested that all except his family and General Barr should Ipnvn tho room. After this had been done, he conversed camly and rationally with his family for sometime on private family affairs. Tnminir to General Barr, and apparently addressing his remarks more particularly to him, tho Governor proceeded to speak of his religious views and hopes. Ho said, in sub stanco, that he was no theologian, and had never made any protession ot religion., no had, however, always endeavored to live hon estly and uprightly in his relations with his fellow men, and he hoped and believed that ho had so dono. He coniesseo mat no naa sinned greatlv, although he denounced as false tho slanderous rumors of his drunken ness and licentiousness which had been circu lated. But, though he acknowledged that he had been a grent sinner in the sight of God, he stated that every act of his in discharging his duty as Governor had been performed with tho strictest conscientiousness, and with prnycrful regard to his responsibility, not only to tho country, but to God. He also stated that he had never gone to bed at night for twenty years without first praying to God for forgiveness and protecuou, uuu vu m mou penitently, acknowledging his sins and trust ing in Christ for pardon. As he spoke, tho Governor raised his eyes, and, as though death keenness to them, exclaimed that he saw the Mediator standing on the right hand of the Father making intercession Inv hia Bina.
