On this dato tho fttnd for Mrs. Garfield 3 cached the sum of $100,000. On tho 11th the physiciana were confident, and tho sufferer was bravo and chccrlnl, M usual. Oa ibis day ho said tho first ball llred by the assissin grazed his elbow, but that tho sccoud one struck him In tho back. By tho 14th tho favorablo condition of tho sufferer relieved the general anxiety. On tho 1 - lth Quit can made a statement to District Attorney Corkhill, to the effect that bo arrived at Washington on March Ctb; tbat ho followed tho President about, trying to got a shot at him, having on May 10th dotcrmined to kill him. Tho real motive for tbo crime, disappointment at failure to recoive an appointment and desiro for revenge, was brought out fully on the trial. On July ICth - tho President vraa pronounced out of danger, and by the 21st it was believed tho wound had bogun to heal. Delusive hope! On tho 23d ho passed a restless nicht. having had a fever and chill, which was attributed to an accumulation cf rus. a se.oond chill following in the after noon. On tho 21th the surgeons performed an operation, making a "counter opening" to facilitate tho discharge of pus. The re sult was a change for the better. On the 2Cth some bits of bono were removed, and by tho 30th rocovery was considered almost assured. On tho 1st of August Profs. Bell nd Taintor tried to locate tho ball by the aid of electric! apparatus, and thought they uccocdcd. On August 3d the President ato some solid food, and on the G.h he had strawberries for breakfast. Ou August S'.h another operation was porormed, to straighten tho channel of the wound and facilitate tho discharge or pus, The next day tho President wrote his name Two dayo later, tho lllh, the case was sur rounded with anxiety, ana curing me mgiu of tho 13ih the stomach began to give trouble and vomiting ensued. On tho 16 th, during tho forenoon, tho members of the Cabinet visited tho White House, and gen oial gloom and despondency prevailed in WashiDRton and throughout tho whole country. Four days later it was announced that tho patient was suffering from blood poisoning in a mild form, and on the 24th tho parotid gland, which had been giving much trouble, was lanced. Gloom and anxiety increased on tho 2Cth, the next' day hone was abandoned, aeatn was ueciareu only a question of time, and Dr. Bliss, un til then as nopoiui as Mrs. uameia, gave up. Tbo sufferer grew better cn the 29th, bat on September 3d a slight check was experienced. Actlvo preparations lor removal to Long Branch wcro made on the 5 th of September, and at (5:40 on tho morning of tbo Gib the momorablo journey was begun. Tho President was borna on his bed to the street, placed on" an express wagon and from thenco to a car, and at C:30 the train started, arriving at Francklyn cottage, El - bcron, Long Branch, shortly after one o'clock. The removal was at rirst followed bv improvement, but by tho 12th another cause for alarm arose in lung troubles, which exoitod groat anxiety. Ano'iicr week of dread and uncertainty passed, and on tho 17th tho sufferer was decidedly worso. and sevoro chills ensued, the result ol chronio blood poisoning. On the morning of tho 10th the end was pronounced not far off, Mrs. Gm field gave up, Dr. Agncw said there was to hopo, and nt 10:35 that night a spasm of intense pain at the heart seized the inQ'erer, death following immediately. Vico President Arthur was at ence notified, and took tho oath of ofiico as resident, a ceremony which ho repeated atWaghing - ton. 1 no remains were at once preparoa for removal to Washington, whoro they arrived on the 21st, many leading men of the Nation accompanying the funeral train. After lying in Stato in tho rotunda of tho Capitol at Washington, tho funeral train started for Clevoland on tho 23d, and about 0 o'clock on tho evening of that day it passed llarrlsburg on tho opposite side ot tho river. On the 20th tho funeral took place at Clove - land. On tho 2Sth of Septemtor the fund for Mrs. Oarfleld amounted to $321,251 80. At thU juncture Sergeant Mitsori, 0110 of tho guards at tho jail whero Guiteau was confined, uhot through ono of the windows of that institution in the hope of killing the assassin. On Ootobor 3d the grand jury began tho consideration of the charges against Guiteau, and the next day presented an Indictment for murder. Ten days later tho wretch was arraigned, and pleaded not guilty. The trial began on the 11th, Mr. ooviJlo, bi9 brother - in - law, and Mr. Robinson, of New York, being bis counsel. The following named persons constituted tho Jury: J. P. Ilarlin, F. W. Brandenburg, C. G. Stewart, II. J. Bright, T. II. Lang - loy, Michael Sheahey, Samuel F. Hobbs, G. YV. Gates, llalph Woimley, Wm. II. Browner, S. lleinloin and Joseph Prather. Tho trial attracted great attention. Mr. Blaiuo was the prinoipal witness for tho Government. On the 21st tho prosecution rested. Three days later tho defense, which was insanity, - was begun by tte Eroscntation of testimony, General lOgan being among the witnesses. Guiteau was called to the stand in his own behalf on the 20th. On the 10th of December the trial was postponed because of the death of Juror Hobbs' wife. Oa the 28th Guiteau'8 abuse, which had been heaped upon witnesses, counsel and court, became insupportable, and ho was removed to the dock. On January 4th, 1882, the hearing of evidence was closed, the argument ot the law points bogan on tho 7th, and the arguments to tho jury on the 12th. On the 21st Guiteau made a speech to the jury, during which ho broke down. Judge Cox charged the jury on the afternoon of the 25th, and thirty minutes after that body retired for consultation tho verdict of guilty was announced. On the 27th the assassin appealed to the country through the press. This was followed by a rumor of his suicide. Sentence of death was pronounced by Judge Cox on February 4th and June 30th fixed as the day of execution. The trial of Sergeant Mason for infraction of military disciplino in shooting at a prisonor under his charge wa3 begun, and he was sentenced on tho 11th of March. On the17th the Baltimore American started a subscrip tlon for Mason's wife "Betty and the Baby," tho opportuuity of subscribing to this fund having been afforded the people of llarrisburg by tho Telegraph. Tho argument of the bill of exceptions in tho Guiteau caso was begun before tho Supreme Court of the District of Columbia in bano on May 0th, the points of tho defenso being want of jurisdiction of tho court and illegality of death sentence, tho claim Doing made tbat the time fixed should have been on a day within one month alter the fourth Monday of October, 1882. Before this trouble had arisen between Mr. and Mrs. Scoville, she having left her husband and ho having withdrawn from Guiteau's defonso, which was conducted subsequently by Mi? lteod, of Chicago, Mr. Robinson having withdrawn tome time before Mr. Scoville. On May 22d the court in banc unanimously denied a now trial. A rehearing of tho argument was asked for by Mr. Reed on tho 2d ot Juno, which was refused three days later. On tho 7th Mrs. Scoville, who stood by her unfortunato brother throughout tho caso, wrote him from Chicago a letter of encouragement and sympathy. Two days later Guiteau said his only hopo was in tho President. On the 13th Mr. Reed appliod to Juslica Bradloy, of the U. S. - Supremo Court, for a writ cf hlbcjis corpus, which wa3 refusod. This was j followed on tho 22d by an appeal to the 1 President for a reprieve, which was unanimously refused by the Cabinet on the 2 lf.h. and the Attorney General requested to caution tVardcn Crocker to permit only the asaHlu'a relatives, couuscl and spiritual adviser to viaifc hira. Dming the past wcok Guiteau occupied h'stimo in preparations for death, his spi ritual advisor, Dr. Hicks, visiting him frequently, lie had an interuiew with his brother, John W. Guiteau, on Wednesday last, on which day the gallows was thoroughly tested. Mrs. Scoville, who is in Washington, made a last appeal to tbe President for clemency on Wednesday, but no reply was made to the epistle.

ALMOST A VICTIM. The Man Who Blows Oat the Oas. Last night about eleven o'clock a man named J. Hambright, of M'Veytown, Juniata county, registered at the United States Hotel and was assigned a room, to which ho immediately went. About two o'clock cne cf the guests at the hotel, whose room was on the same floor as that of Hambright, noticed a strong odor of gas in his room, and making an examination found the odor much stronger in the hall - way. . He informed the night caller, Alfred Garner, and the latter, after a search, found that the gas ca - mo from Hambright's room. He tried to awaken the latter, but could not, and wa3 fie ally compelled to break in the door, when Hambright was found lying in bed, half dead from the fume3 of gas. He was carried into the air and restoratives applied, and in half an hour had recovered sufficiently to tell that he had blown out the gas instead of turning it off. Hambright gave his rescuer a dollar and thought he was exceedingly generous. He went home to day. JDJB , LOKG'J MOTH BOOK. W. if. Herald. The notes made by De Long during his retreat were begun October 1, 1881,and were continued to October 30, when he was himself, after seeing all but three of his comrades fall, no longer able to write; Oa October 0 they were slowly following Ninder - mann and Noros, who had been Bent on to obtain relief, but the latter did not reach a settlement until the 29ih of October. This settlement known as Bulun or Bolonega, was apparently one hundred and twenty miles from the locality at which Engineer Melville recently found the remains of De Long's party. It will be remembered that the accounts whiih reached us last winter stated that on the arrival of Ninder - man and Noros at Bulun the fact was communicated to Engineer Melville, then at some distance, and thus he learned for the first time that DeLong's party had actually landed cn the Lena Delta and had been retreating southward. Whatever resources might have been at Engineer Melville's command for prosecuting a search for his commander itwas even then too late to have been or any avail, for the ominous absence of any entry in DeLong's note boos after October 30 leaves no question that he was on that day hopelessly overcome by the tern bie exhaustion of the march. JNoex pedition could have reached him from Bulun even had they known just where to find him in time to have rendered him effectual succor. Happily, amid all the sad circumstances attending the close of DeLong's journey, the entries in his own note book completely explode the theory which some have indulged, that had a more thorough and persistent search been made in .November it would have resulted in his recovery. Some mashers would have made a run for it, but this one didn't. He set off on a gallop, and as he wanted to go light he left his grip - sack and a ton of brass behind him. BTKAXCIAI.

There has been some licjuida - Hon of account on the anticipation of prolonged holidays, bnt prices have been well maintained, and fluctuations have boon confined to narrow limits. There has been no pressure or stocks for tale. Tho majority of the room traders look for a better market after the Fourth. Heading stock hai been considerably sold by some of the large bear?, who are basing their operations on reports of the failure to place tho Heading loan. Tho only feature 01 importance was 1 ho dissemination Of poiuts to buy Texas Pacific, Kansas and Texas and the Southwestern roads generally, Out tho quarter from which this comes is the same as usual, and is received with some caution. Money was in rather more demand, loaning as high ss 8 par cent. The mejority of the loans, however, have been made between 4 and 5 per cent. Tho Philadelphia market was quiet and strong on early dealings, with veiy lew stocks offering. The buU party took advantage of this condition to bid Pennsylvania up from lYa to 56, and Lehigh to 39, and if disposed could easUy have marked the whole list up,had not a reluctance to carry stock over the holidays prevented. A feature of later dealings was a selling movement in Heading which came from New York, and though it met with a fair local demand broke the price from 29 to 28. During the morning inquiries ware received from prominent New York houses as to the . probable payment of Heading scrip and of interest July 1st, and these inquiries met with doubtful answers, which probaMy led to the selling movement, Tbe general market sold oil', in sympathy by a fraction, but closed very steady.

From the Chicago Jourr al cf June 23. J The annourcament is made of the death in thi3 city, on Wednesday evening last, of Beverly W. Egle, only son of Dr. W. II. Egle, of Harrisburg, Pa. His death was remarkable from the peculiar nature of the disease which carried him off. About three weeks ago he was attacked with a malignant boil cn the upper lip, the inflammation from which followed the course ot the veins leading to the brain, and caused inflammation of the brain, from which he died. Clotted blood also formed in the right lung. Such cases are very rare, but when they occur they are almost certain to prove fatal, on account of the direct connection of the veins of the upper lip with the brain, through which inflammation of the brain is produced, ending in paralysis and death in a large proportion of cases. The dece3ged was a young man of unusual promise. He was in this city studying at Chicago Medical College, where, had he lived until next spring, he would have graduated, no doubt with high honors, as since the commencement of his college course, he has always stood in the very front rank of his class, and showed marked ability and talent. He was possessed of rare Bccial qualities, and, by courteous manners and obliging disposition, as well as by his rich mental endowments, he won for himself the love and reepect of his professors and classmates. Probably there was not a more popular student connected with the college. When it wa9 seen that he was sinking his father was sent for and artived here last Saturday night, remaining until last evening, when he left for Harrisburg with the remains. When he arrived, however, he unfortunately found his sen unconscious, in which state he remained till he died, so that his father was unable to have any conversation with him. Deceased was twentyone years of age, and an only son and grandson, and his death will be an exceedingly heavy blow to his relatives, who have the sympathy of all their acquaintances and friends in their sad bereavement. HIGH SCHOOL ALPMBI, Annual meeting Held Last evening.

Duiinff the Democratic Convention yes terday an incident happened, the points of which few but an old politician could take in and enjoy. Samuel Patterson, a member of the Allegheny delegation, and ex - Speaker of the House, a Democrat who never knew anything and nas lorgotten that, arose and in bombastic style strode down the middle aisle to place in nomination a andidate for Congressman - at - .Large. "Mr. Chairman," said Patterson, "I desire to place in nomination the son of one of the grandest Democratic Governors that ever tilled the chair of State. I" Just here James P. Earr rushed up to Patterson and whispered something in hia car, and the speaker wilted as if a wet blanket had been thrown on liim. He stammered and stuttered until he informed the convention that hi3 nominee wa3 Rich ard Johnson, of Armstrong county. The point of the affair is that Governor Johnston was a Whi? and an intense hater of Democ racy. The son has turned from the idols of his father, and would have blushed to hear the laughter that greeted Patterson's an nouncement. Coal and lrou Police Commissioned. Commissions were issued this morning at the State Department to fifty coal and iron police, who have been deputed for duty m the bituminous coal regions where a strike now exists. They were appointed at the request of the coal exchange of Clear field and Clinton counties, and have been selected by Captain Clark, of Clearfield county, from among the tough citizens of Philadelphia. Detective Anderson, ot this city, is ecting with Captain Clark in the matter. The fifty new police passed through Harrisburg this afferncon on their way to assume their duties. To say the least they were a desperate looking set of fellows, who would rather right than eat. Among those who went from this city was George H. Adams. if IK 15 &T DAUPHIN. Tha Old Kobioson Tannery In Flames. A telegram was received by the mayor to day at noon from Dauphin informing him that a large fire was raging at that place and requesting assistance. The matter was placed in the hands of Chief Engineer Welper, who detailed the Hope steamer and hose cariiage and Citizen hose carriage to go to the ecene, a special train taking them to Dauphin at great speed. It is learned that the building on fire was the bark shed belonging to the William J. Robinson estate, one of the largest buildings in the place, and that it was a total Iobs. The tannery was situated near the Northern Central bridge, along the river, and it was feared tht this structure would be burned. Serious lrray. Last evening two Italian vendors of ice cream, Pascal Baste and Michael Moorey, engaged in a very serious quarrel at the circus grouuds corner cf North street and Pennsylvania avenue. Their trouble commenced in a wrangle about the location of their caita, and Moorey being much the larger man of the two attacked Baste with a large dinner bell. He abused him terribly about the face and head. His in juries were such that it was necessary that be should be taken to the tjity Hospital, wker3 his wounds could receive proper , treatment. Moorey was committed to jail for hearing. Four New Pal'.voads Charters were issued at the State Department to day for new railroads, a? follows : .
