From a statement of the Secretary of the

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. But the simple "Cit
izen" who in the simplicity of his heart lags
behind tho age in which we live, has yet to
Ipam the distinction theso modern times
oxic ting between matters of the mind and of
bodily health, tho wherewithal to nil an
empty Btomach, and remedial measures to be
resorted to after disease shall have Sot in.
Had ho taken into consideration that Alder
men nro incontrovertible gormands, and that
us a substitute for roast beef, (an unhculty
food these sultry days) either turtle soup or
broiled frogs are essentials to tho delicate
stomachs of officials, and that gnats, and par
ticularly musqnitos have becomo approved
medicaments in the advanced stage of the
medical profession, particularly as a substitute
for the lancet in the practice of f lea-bot omy,
wo believe he would have held his peace,
and suffered our city fathers to go on their
way unchallenged and ccnsurelcss. Now
should "Citizen" instead of grumbling and
complaining, by a due exercise of his genius
have contributed to the enlargement of a new
species of delicato food such for instance as
niay bo found in the frog family and to the
advancement of science and commerce in a
new species of trade calculated to deplete the
body of its overcharged fluid, we cannot
but believe ho would have done himself great
er honor, and deserved more at the hands of
posterity than ho is now likely to receive,

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-

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

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. Soon the

AV ACCOUNT of his affliction.
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

sufferings and sorrows of the earthly life, to

The closing scene in the life of Governor

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
