Washington, July 2. This morn
ing witnessed a scene unparallvlcd in
the LiHtory of the country. The as
sassination of Lincoln, coming as it did,
at tho close of a long and desperate
war, and at tho last expiring throe of
that war was an infinitely more log
ical event than this horror. A dumb
horror suems to have taken poRscsxion
of everybody, and few appear to real
ize the present situation, much b-ns to
forecast the future. A great crowd
gathered almost instantly around the
Baltimore and Potomac depot in which
the Fresidenl was shot. A hundred
different and conflicting stories of tho
manner of the shooting and of ita effect
spread like wild fire through the city.
By common consent business was sus
pended in the shops and stores as well
as in the public ofliees, and the popula
tion of Washington emptied itself into
the streets and gathered at tho conn rs
to listen to tho newest tale told of the
tragedy. An account of the shodlmg
given by Secretary Blaino to Judge
Shellabarger this afternoon is probably
as accurate as any that can be obtained;
The president ond Mr. Blaino rode
to the depot this morning in a carriage
together. Mr. Blaine says that Presi
dent Garfield was in an unusually joy
ous mood and several times expressed
lis keen gratification that relations be
tween himself and the members of his
cabinet were so harmonious, and that
tho administration was an unit. When
the uirriane arrived in front of the
depot the president and Mr. Blaine left
it and entered the ladies waiting room,
through which they passed arm in arm,
Mr. Blaino says that he dropped the
president's arm as they wero walking
through the door into the main room
at which instant two shots wero fired.
Mr. Blaine saw a man running and
started toward him, but turned aluiot-t
immediately and saw that the presi
dent had fallon. It was then that 1 e
first realized thut the shots had been
fired at tho president He sprang
toward hira, as did several others and
and raised his head from the floor. As
the president foil he exclaimed, "My
God." At this time Postmaster Gen
eral James, Secretary Windom and
Secretary Lincoln, who had arrived ear
lier at the train, were promenading on
the platform outside. General James
says that Colonel Jamieson of tho post
ollice department rushed out of the de
pot immediately after the sliota were
firod and exclaimed "Tho president is
shot!" Either the secretary or anotlier
gentleman exclaimed, "Oh, nonsense."
Col. Jamieson said. "I saw it." ' The
party then rushed back and found
Blaine, who appeared te be the only
cool man in the crowd bending over
the presidont and keeping the people
lack. Physicians were hastily sum
moned and Dr. Bliss, Ilyburn and sev
eral others were soon in attendance.
The president -was removed to a room
in the second story and a preliminary
examination of the wound was made
but tho ball, which had entered the right
side of his back, near the spinal column
and immediately over the hip bono,
could not be found, although its course
was traced for about three iucher.
As soon as ho fired the shot the
assassin was seized by Officer Carney
and immediately hurried away to police
headquarters. This was fortunate for
him, for as soon as the dazed crowd as
certained that the murderer was in
custody, there was talk of lynching
him; and if the excited crowd could
have laid hands on him, his fate would
have been a sudden and a tragic one.
Guitteau was locked up and physi-
c;an, summoned. On the arrival of the
prisoner ui me neauifuarrers, no was at
once locked up, and word having been
sent in every direction for physicians,
Dr. TowiiBond, health officer, responded
and subsequently Dr. J. II. Baxter of
the army, Dr. Tell of the navy, and
Dr. D. W. Bliss responded. Guitteau
did not throw tho pistol away, but had
it in his hand when arrested. Tho
crowd outsido tho depot seemed at
a toss whether to go to police head
quarters and lynch the pjtrty, but about
9:45 word came out of tho room into
which tho president was taken that the
wound on the body was not necessar
ily fatal, but that the ball could not be
proWl for until after, and that one
ball had wounded him in tho right arm
just below tho shoulder. This seemed
to re lievo tho crowd sonuiwhat, and
while it became more and more dep.se,
it quietly awaited further nows.
At about 10 o'clock A M. the chief
of police having, after consultation
with Gen. Sherman, ordered out a largo
detail of the polico force, a police anibr.
lance was driven to tho front door of
tho depot. The president appeared to
bo sleeping and was deathly pale. Just
as ho was placed in tho ambulance he
opened his eyes. Tho streets in the
neighborhood of tho depot were thronged
with people, as also was the avenue.
Everything was very quiet. As the
presidont was being placed in the am
bulance somelKxly called out, "Hurrah
for tho man who shot him," but the in
dignant crowd could not discover tho
'A Malwart or Stalwarts."
Washington, July 2. The papers
referred to in Guitteau's letter to Gen
Sherman have not yet lcen given out
for publication. Byron Andrew who
is tho Washington correspondent of the
Chicago Inter Ocean, says that while it
is truo that a packago of papers aro in
the hands of tho police, accompanied by
a note addressed to him (Andrews) he
had no personal acquaintance and never
heard of his existence till this morning.
The following letter was found on the
stroots, shortly after Guitteau's arrest,
in an envelope, unsealed, and addressedi
'Tlcase deliver at onco to Gen. Sher
man or his first assistant of tho War
Department: Gon'l Sherman, I have
just shot the President. I shot him so v.
eral times, as I wished him to go as easy
as possible, I am a lawyer, theologian
and politician, and am a stalwart of the
stalwarts, I was with Gen. Grant, and
the rest of our men in New York dur
ing the canvass. I am going to jail.
Arthur at tho White House;
Wabiiinoton, July 4. This after
noon tho vice president drove to the
white housa He was received by the
cabinet all of whom wore there, and
they held a conference. Tho vice pres
ident expressed his most profound re
gret at the occurrence, and said that
nothing ever so moved him. Ho ear
nestly hopod for tho President's recov
ery and expressed sincere admiration
for the president, General Arthur was
then usliercd into a room whore Mrs.
Garfield received him. She showed
marked emotion, but bore up well. . In
feeling terms the vice president ex
pressed sympathy for her, and hoped
tho president would recover and enjoy
a peaceful and happy administration.
A member cf the cabinet explained
that tho physicians had positively for
bidden that tho president should see
Arthur; that he must have absolute
quiet, and such a visit would necessar
ily excite him more or less. The vice
president recognized tho force of this
and acquiesced. Secretary Hunt, Post
master General James and other mem
bers of the cabinet say that the vice
president manifested the most sincere
and earnest feeling and sympathy, and
it was evident that he was most deeply
grieved. The vice president said to
the cabinet that, aside from all Other
considerations, he earnestly hoped, on
his own account,- that the president
would get well, and added: "Got
knows I do not want the position to
which I was not tlected--one I never
expected to hold, and under such dread
ful and distressing circumstances."
Albany July 4. Administration
im-n charge the stalwarts with actual
htdirect.respotisibility for the murder
of the president. It is expected thai
some result iu balloting will be reached
rrayer for the President.
Chicago, July 4. Nearly every
church in every hamlet and city in tho
land held services yesterday primarily
or incidentally devoted to prayers for
the safety of Garfield, hopes for his
restoration or to discussion of the isr
Garfield's Last Letter.
Washington, July 4. By a singu
lar coincidence the lost letter written
by the president before ho was shot
was addressed to Gen. Hancock, dated
Friday, and related to an appointment
recently conferred upon ono of Gen,
Hancock's aides do camp. It was
pleasant in tone and could not but
have pleased the recipient Tho letter
informed Gen. Hancock that Col
Mitchell had been appointed assistant
adjutant general of tho army and after
apologizing for depiivingthe general's
stair of an excellent officer, concluded,
"While your staff, general, loses an or
nament, tho service gains an assistant
adjutant general of whom it may well
fuel proud." '
Chas. Guitteau, the would be assassin
went to Washington in February last
with recommendations from various '
parties in Illinois to secure tho United
States consulship to Marseilles, France;
He also applied for tho placd of U. S;
minister to Austria, but he had no en
dorsements whatever, only filing i
copy of one of his speeches in the cam
paign. Ho claimed he was with Grant
last fall, and says he is from Freeport,
Illinois, aged 30 years. Director of the
mint Burchard knows his family. He
evidently planned the.assassination, but
withqut providing for escape. He be
lieved he could convince Sherman hi
lid right. He was hurried to jail sd
fast that there was no time for lynch:
Col. Iiigcrsoll knew, Guitteau as a
quiet and sober man, and believos his"
The assassin Guitteau is a well known
figuro to the peoplo at the white house.
Ho has tried on several occasions W
pass himself off as a newspaper reporter
Ho frequently wroto notes to the Prat-
idont of which tho following is a sample;
"I regret the trouble you are having
with Senator Conkling. You are all
right and should maintain your posi
tion. You have my support and that
of all patriotio citizens. I .would like
an audience of a few momenta." He
used to seize upon tlio Wllite House
state stationery, tako some of it off and
wriie innumerable letters. Ho would
utilize blank cards by Writing himself a
supply, if he should ever need therri
and ono day Col Crook, disbursing
clerk, said to him, "You seem to make
yourself at homo and be laying in a
suply of stationery." Said Guitteau
to him in an insulting manner, "Dd
you know who I ami I am one of the
men who make presidents." Last Tues
day he met one of the employees and
was very particular in inquiring wheri
the president would leave and by what
train and road. He has an idiotio grin
on his faco at times. One day he
he said that this was a "hell of a gov
ernment. The people are nd better
Washington, July 2. Guitteau has
sandy complexion and is of slight build,
weighing not more than 125 pounds,
lie wears a moustache end light chin
whiskers; and his sunken cheeks and
eyes far apart from each other give him
a sullen, or, as an official described it
a bony appearance. The officer in
question stated he had noticed it to be'
the peculiarity of nearly all murderers
that their eyes set far apart and Guit- . .
teat, he said, proved no exception td
the general tile. When the prisoner'
arrived at the jail he was attired in i
suit of blue, and wore a drab hat;
pulled down over his eyes, giving him"
the appearance of an ugly character. It
may bo worthy of note to state thaf
some two or three weeks ago Guineas'
went to jail for tho purpose of visit-'
ing it, but was refused admittance on
the ground of it not being visitors' day;
He at that time mentioned his name'
was Guittertu, and he said he came froni
