I had not intended to offer any disclosure concerning the plotting" of your enemies against you, which coulu be regarded as an inducement for granting my application. I instructed my wife, in pre senting the petition, to refer to the conspi -Jracy of As.hley & Cq so far only as might feeling that might have been engendered within you toward me by the newspaper reports; that I had engaged to assist your oneniles in their nefarious designs, I adopt eU this reserve in the belief that the cervi ces I had rendered the government, as cer tified by Judge Holt, the non. Mr. Kiddle, and Mr. Ashley, would in vour view and judgement, render me deseiying Executive. clemency, and because 1 desired that it jehould appear on the record, and on the Lfaee of my nardon, that clemency had ut'L'ii tuiiuiucu iu ui bojcijt in lxiiisiuerauuii of my services to the government, nnd ex closively on the recommendation of prom inent Radicals, to the end that when I should come to expose the atrocious plot of Ashley Co., the Radicals would not be in a position or'dile to charge; mewith doing so in consideration of apard8n; brlhlf the .President had pardoned me on condition of my implicating his enemies in an infa mous conspiracy. i Prom the moment I was forced into as sociation with these traitors and conspira tors, I determined, as soon as I ehould be released, to place in the hands of your Ex cellency, orjlay before the public a com" plete-exposure ot their diabolical designs and most astoundinc proceedings. This. 1 (believed, would be my sacred duty, for al though accused ot crime, 1 am not so des titute of honor and patriotism as not to feel -on wnteroet in and obligations t0 my country. The interest these persona have felt, And the uflbrts they have made, (which would have succeeded ere this but for the blun der of them.) and which they still propose to make formy release, (F G,) I know were prompted by the most selush motives, in order tlmlhgymight ueq me as an iristnl ment to aoeomphsh tHeir devilislhesigns, nnd I juiall Jiet therefore be miiltr of in- gratitede in abandoning and exposing fheir lily wife has, I believe, explained to you how Ashley, first through his man Fri day, Matchett, and afterward in person, managed to make known to me his wishes, aims, nnd purposes, and enlist me as far as a forced nromise would go in his en terprise. 1 shall, therefore, only advert here to some things which have been said and done by the conspirators, which are susceptible of hoing proved against them by the most irreiragabie evidence. After obtaining ray promise to render all the assistance in my power, Mr. Ashley explained to me the kind of evidence he thought it most advisable to present against you. (I must bo very brief.

He de- clarel that you were a traitor to your party and country, etc, etc ; that there was no doubt of your complicity in the assassina tion conspiracy ; but that the evidence was in the hands of your friends, and could not all be got at ; Tthat enough, however, had been secured to satisfy most reasonable men of his guilt, but that, in order to sat isfy the most exacting, the statements of these persons before the committee would be requisite; that the cud fully justified the means, and that every man ivho con? trfbuted in this way to the impeachment of the President would deserve well of the country, and that he (Ashley; would see them rewarded ten-lold when your succes sor should come into power. i&nbsequently, the parties were presented to, Butler, and, after being inspected and passed by him, were introduced by him add Ashley to several Radical members of the House, who, it was understood, had hitherto doubted the existence ot evidence implicating yon in tiie assassination con spiracy, and who informally interrogated them as to the matters upon which they had been instructed, A.J iJutler desired to have taken the deposi tions of these men at the time, but I would not consent to its being done until I should be released, as at first agreed. 'lhese facw can be proved by these three persons, and also by my wife, whose char acter for truth aiid veracity is not inferior to'Mr. Ashley's: and I shall take pleasure, if at liberty, in producing them before any committee or tribunal tor the impeachment of the impeachers. 15 ut the evidence of this conspiracy does not depend entirely upon oral proof. The letters from Ashley, herewith enclosed, in themselves speak volumes. What state ment B from me could he have wanted, and for' what purpose? Anything it was in my power to state to him could have been stated to him orally a dozen times during his previous visits to me. Uhe statement he wanted was this, anu for this purpose: There were many prom inent Radicals, and especially among his own consumems, .wno'were lukewarm on the subject of impeachment; who were not prepared to believe thatjyou were privy to the murder of Lincoln, arid whose co-oper ation was greatly needed.

After the "persons' I had sent .for to New Ydrkas witnesses had' returned, Matchett entl eavored, without my knowledge, to per- suaue them to come nere again, ana in uis letters to two of them he thoughtlessly suggested some additions that it was de sired they should make to their statements.

The letters of reference inserted in the foregoing, and annexed to the succeeding, are not upon the originals, but are introduced solely tor yonr convenience in perusing mis repori. lue siiDjoinea paper, neaueu memorans ilhm," "by the hand that wrote it, bears in tprhnl evidence of having been furnished s n mide to some person or persons who were expected to labncate corresponamg testimony: o . . . " 1? Shortly before the inauguration of Lin- colp a'nd" Johnson, the lattr, through or in connection with Booth, sent several letters to the Confederacy, one of which was in tended for Jefferson Davis. These letters were borne by a messenger named Allen, who had been acting as a scout or spy for mm nf the Union Generals. Allen was I -picket lines, and was supposed to have been sent on scCTtduty, in connection-with his command. Ho was also provided with papers from a Rebel emissary at the North, to ensure him proper treatment when he should enter the Confederate lines. After delivering his mail in Richmond, he re turned, bearing several letters which he received from J. P. Benjamin. These let ters were enclosed to Booth. On returning to Washington, Allen called on Booth and the parties themselves, what was said and done'bj'andtween .thcrajnth'matteft rfflie.ta1eme1nWtieywefe desired to jnafefc delivered' the package, and Booth, after j pxamipingBopiff of the letters; went out,aai he eaid, inrcli of hia njegtenger.

And, also, that it can fnrther'be proved by . two persons; formerly isaoei sciater?, mat Booth, on the first or second day before his death, fell in with them near, Garrett's, and asked their advice, and assistance in his efforts to escape. He informed them that he had killed Lincoln, and thereby made a. good Southern man President. One of the partic, whose name is uawson, said to mm that if he meant that he liad made Andy Johnson President he had done the worst possible thing for the South, as he was more extreme in his views', and a greater enemy to the South than Lincoln. Booth replied that it was a mistake that John son, as a candidate and office-seeker, had to say a great many things, but that as President he could do what he pleased; that he was bound to be a friend of the South, and that if he went back on him (Booth) he would have him hung higher than Haman. These men belong to good families and bear excellent characters, and can be produced as witnesses. Here the paper ends; but the iollowing, which was originally the final clause, and is now concluded, is still legible : For the names of Dawson and Allen, used above; leave blanks, or substitute the names of such persons as you know will take their parls.

HOLT AND RIDDLE HEAR A HAND. For this despicable service Conover, alias Dunham was to be pardoned out of the penitentiary.

Tbfflabor and difficulties of the case were great, and the government is under great obligations to Charles A. Dunham for ranch r.alnahle information, both as to theiacts, and witnesses for the United States, and for the history of and facts concerning the wit neaies called for the defense. Although in iail. he managed to keep informed, of the progress of the case, and from time to time mmmiin!fttl Jmnortant faclS'And sugges tions, and seemingly for the sole purpose of a fair investigation ol the case, wnemcr iv feould work for hU benefit or not. It seems to me that for hia services in thia behalf the government should mark iU appreciation of them in a way not to be mistaken. Respectfully, A.G.Kiddxe.

J. Holt. A new hog disease, it is reported, has broken out among the hogs of South Mis souri, which, is killing off nearly all at tacked by it. At first the disease wa3 sup posed to be hog cholera, but close observa- tion shows that the symptoms and actions are' quite different from that disease. The animal has mucli the appearance of having what is known among farmers as " blind staggers." As long as warmth and circu lation are kept up, the animal shows no signs of disease, but as soon as it is quiet and inactive the suffering appears intense. Ih many instances the eyeballs are turned completely around, and frequently burnt. The hog attacked generally lives from two to three days. All remedies yet tried have proved ineffective, and many farmers, are in dismay at the ravages of the disease. Judge FisnER, who materially assisted the prosecution in the recent trial of John H. Surratt. inliis speech to the jury, gave vent to the following Pharisaical exclama tion: "In a cause involving the life of the pri soner upon the one hand, and the vindica tipn of the outraged justice of a nation in mourning upon the other, l aeemea ii my duty to cast not an atom in the one scale o the other which might by any possibili ty) tend to prejudice either side of the issue." ,Any one wno waicneu me iriai, anu saw the extraordinary manner in which Judge Fisher ruled against the prisoner, will be surely tempted to place the Judge in the same category with the witnesses whose character for truth and veracity was so se verely questioned by their neighbor's testi mony.
