gg An appeal is here made for the sick sol
diers at the hospital. Milk,.butter, eggs, chick
one vegetables are painfully needed. A little
smil, and a few chickens are now required by
several of the sick, who it is feared, will not re

nourishment. Let those who hive it in their.

From an Atlanta pape of the 26th April, we
gather the following items:
A Baltimore dispatch to the N. Y. Herald says,

Toward the beginning of the secowd scene of
the third act, John Wilkes Booth,,brother to
Edwin atid Junius Booth, and son to the celebra
ted actor of the same nime, visited this exclusive
domain to which his profession as actor was an
open sesame. Re entered the back door of the
theatre, and left 'very soon, leaving d7at back
door opem. He had evidently ridden to the thea
tre, for er- enEering t he left his horse in the
The comedy is in its third act, in the 2d scene
of it. Madame Mountchessington has left the
stage to A.% Trenchard, with the'remark
"You don't understand the manners of. goo&
society. That alone can excuse the inpertinence
of which you are guilty."
Trenchard: answers-"II guess Lknow enough
to.turn you inside out." And the audience ciap
their hands and laugh in glee. 'ncoln
joins in the laugh-.-pistol shot, sha clear
-is heard. The words Sic semper tyrarnis are
whispered. "Revenge for the South is aed."
A white'face, covered with -'a night of hair,"
lighted by two black,. shining eyes is en be
tween the- President's box and the Isage; a mo
ment passes-it drops. A form cr6uches as it
falls-then rises in histrionic attitude-in its
hand a knife .whose -newly polished surface re
fleets the numerous gas jets. Three seconds
nay. two-nd it is gone.
Still as the bush that followjs a prayer-in the
chamber of the dying, the audience sits "spell
bound,.it may have been for two seconds. 'A
tall man jumps upon the stage, and he too, dis
appeared, while.a voice in the audience at last
utters the name of the. assein-John Wilkes
Booth.- -
It has now been proven tiat Booth after his
visit behind the scenes, aving left that back
door open, rapidly went to the front of -the thea
tre, ascended into the dress circle, pa sed -by the
only door open into the box, advanced to the
front of it and.lening, over, with, the- elbow of
his right arm out of the box, his left hand on'the
balustrade, fired -a pistol -at the Presiden . This
pisol, a Deringer, was evidently loaded with. two
[perhaps with more than t wo.balls, of -diameter
less than that of the piofbarrel,*one of these
balls struck the President below the lefAear and
two inches behind it. The other did not Nit him
but ient through the locked an*l unused door of
the box, scattering splintera outside (not inside)'
the box.. Having fired, Booth dropped the-pis
tol, and drew a long knife, 'shapedlike' the sword
of Roman gladiator-e^ regular ,tyfus in form,
but rounded not angled to a point. He vaulted
over the balustrade to the floor of the box, hism
left hand supporting his ireight ad breaking-his
fall by i hold oni it.* The distance (rom the
balustrade to the floqr of the thedke is-exactly
twelve feet and eight itches. The exclamadion
"Sic semnper tyranis," was uttered as.lie vaulted
