at his office in the headquaitersuildiug,

He Srst asked for the facts regarding the
platform, being evidently more anxious
ou that accouut thau about the manner
of bis nomination.
He was given a telegraphic synopsis of
the resolutions, which. he read very care
fully, espresniug himself perfectly a.itis
fiud with every plank.
While manifesting the greatest inter
est in the news received regarding the
canvass for Vice President, he expressed
uo opiuion of the various candidates, aud
gave uo indication of his pcrfeooal pre

twenty or thirty Senators aud represen

as to howbe caught fire. By some it it
supposed that iu a fit of intoxication his
clothes caught fire from his pipe, and
that he was too much under the influence
of liquor to extinguish the flames.
Agaiu, it is probable that, while attempt

upon the fire, the oil was ppilled upou
his clothing, and enveloped him in

terribly excruciating. The deceasod, al

The wituesi believed that this propo
sition from the Senator wa intended t-j
entrap him, and acting under that belief,
determined that he would lrad them on
until he could espo-e tl.cm. The wit
ness assigned as reasons tor thi. belief
that the Senator was a strong portisan j
that he felt bitterly toward the President
and that if money was his object, the
party to which he belonged ws much
butter able to pay thau the adaiini&ira
tioD. In addition to which, the person in
enumerating the names of Senators
which Mr. Pomery proposed to control,
included the name of Morton, of Indi
ana, and witness did not believe such aa
assertion to be possible. The name of
Sena'or Nye was also included.
The interviews with witness wcn
sought by the party professing to act for
Seuator Pomeroy. He brought letters
showing his authority. The terms vere
