The telegram embodying the account of Clark's execution at Bozeman, as for warded to the Enterprise cf yesterday, was necessarily brief, and our readers may be interested in a full and more detailed account of the ghastly exhibition and its incidents. From the time the tcrrilde death sen tence was pronounced upon Clark, he seems to have viewed his approaching doom almost with indifference, and at no time exhibited any sign of desponden cy or weakness. Though receiving the ministrations of clergymen kindly, he could not be said to have exhibited any token of having experienced the saving influences of religious instruction. During the night preceding the execution he is said to have awakened and sung a hymn, and for nearly an hour before go ing to the scaffold he was attended by a clergyman and joined with him in singing a number of sacred songs, his voice being strong and clear, if not very musical. When brought out of the cell with unioned arms lie walked briskly to the foot of the scaffold, mounted the steps with as light and firm a tread as it lie had been going to the most joyous ceremony, and took his position on the drop. As the fatal noose was being adjusted on his throat and a second strap drawn on his arms, his hands trembled a little, perhaps from a nervousness lie could not control, perhaps merely from buckling the strap tightly around the muscles of his arms. Ilis legs were also bound with two straps, uid the black cap being placed on his lead he lifted up his face, cleared his throat, and in a voice that many an incipi ent orator might have envied, spoke briefly to the people. He said: " Well, gentlemen, I suppose you know what I am here for—at least you say I am here for the murder of Thomas Rogers. Gentlemen of Bozeman, I stand here to meet my God, aud I say I am an innocent mau. I am innocent of the crime of mur der, and know nothing of it whatever. The man who testified against me swore falsely, but I can meet my God au inno cent man, so far as this crime is concern ed. I was brought up in as good society as any man in Bozeman, and I was raised by a good pious mother in one of the best families of the State where I came from, and now' I will meet my God (lifting his eyes heavenward). Farewell to my sun ny southern home, my mother dear and the one I loved." As the last words left his lips the cap was draw n over his face. Under-Sheriff Ponsford pulled the lever andClprk fell. His feet struck the ground, and (as we noticed afterward) left plain imprints in the frozen ground. He drew up his legs, either from muscular contraction or a conscious desire to hang rather than strangle to death. After a moment they again touched the ground, but by that time a number of men had seized the other end of the rope and he was drawn clear of the ground aud, so suspended, died. The ex amining physicians, Doctors Campbell and Monroe, found that after a little less than three minutes the pulse ceased to beat, and the body was taken down, placed in a coffin and removed for burial. The atten dant physicians were not certain that the neck was broken, though the fact that he died easily and quickly would seem to ar gue that there was a separation of the vertebral column. Clark was a Virginian by birth, but is reported to have said to one who visited him liefore his dead» that John A. Clark was not his name and that his parents and sisters would never known his fate. An other rejHirt at ys that he wrote letters to his relatives on the eve of his execution, but this is not authenticated and is im probable. He wrote a long statement for the Bozeman Chronicle, briefly detailing the course of his life and the chain of cir cumstances that brought him into con nection with Lyman and Rogers, the latter of whom he is taken to have murdered. Could he have prove«! the story he told.he would not have been executed for the crime. He said that after leaving Lyman and Rogers he met two men, Thompson and Roberts, who were on their way to Benton by way of Livingston aud White Sulphur Springs. He came with them to near Livingston ami bought a horse of a man who brought it into cam)». Ou this horse lie rode into Livingston, bought some articles and went up to Hawke»' (or Haxsay's). stay ml there all day and was arrested then: in the evening. He was not able to obtain any trace of those men Thompson or Roher I* afterward.
