The man who fired at the queen gave the narao of Roderick McLean , and aaldjtlmt ho committed the act through starvation , but several valu able articles and a sum of money found ou him disprove this assertion.

The examination into the antece dents of the assassin is now going on , but its results have not boon made public. The impression increases however , that McLean is something moro than an insane vagrant and that the investigation will show that some- .hing like a half-digested plan for the \ssassination of the queen had really yeen formed. Roderick McLean , the young man who shot at the queen yesterday , was examined this afternoon. Ho was cool and straightforward in his an swers , He affirmed that ho did not mean o harm the person of the queen ; at JM > , fired the ihot at her because ng the public attention to the state of affairs which compelled him to commit a crime against the very heart of the nation in order to roach the bloated aristocracy of the country and make thorn sensible to the popular hatred of the institution which hedged thorn about and protected them in their villainies against the people. He admitted that in his esti mation the queen had done nothing herself to oppress her subjects , but insisted that she was at the head of the aristocratic system that doro down upon the people with an unsupporta- bleweighfand tyranny , and that his shot Was directed towards her , not for the purpose of harming her , but of warning the aaistocracy that the peo- Elo of wnom he was one , and whom o volunteered to represent , wore nn- patiuit and in a dangerous temper.
