GXOROBTT. Fun*. Xxeeator o! the last will and testament ot Mary 8. Button, deceased. Ail Ordinance. [Special Letter.] History and romance are interwoven closely. Every time the anniversary of President Lincoln's death cornea around we read versions ol the tragedy differing- from each other in many particulars. Of late years some writers have delighted in picturing John Wilkes Booth, the president's assassin, as aa enthusiast who considered himself a worthy Imitator of Brutus and .other heroes of the stage and of history. Anyone who looks at the as- aassination of April 14, 1805, dispassionately cannot take sides with this morbidly-romantic school of would-be historians. Booth may have thought he waa doing a deed of patriotism when ho flrod the shot which killed Lincoln, but it would require a^re? markable torturing' of facts to make him out a successor of Brutus,_wh<j ils, in many respects, one of tha'nobleat creations ol Shakespeare. , The Conspirator and HI* Tooli» ^ . When John Wilksa, Booth .committed his great crime he "was twenty-, aevon year* of a#e. He was one of the' idols of tbe theater-firolnffpilbllo.hayinK inherited his father's remarkable talent in a greater measure even than his brother Edwin. Being 1 an ardent confederate, the downfall of Lee preyed, on his mind, and may .have produced. monomania. This would perhaps .be a proper and charitable view, had he carried out his evil design without calling to his aid others who were less intelligent and far-seeing,.; When CassiuB and Brutus conspired .they. called upon their equals in rank and opportunities. Booth associated with himself David Herold/a young druggist's olerk; Lewis Payne, a deserter' from the confederate ranks; Oeorpe Atzerodt, a sign painter; Samuel Arnold and Michael McLaufj-hlin, two confederate soldiers, and John H. Suratt, the young son of his landlady. He was the evil genius of these smaller minds. Ho filled their hearts with hatred for 'persons and things which before had been merely objectionable. He persuaded them to believe that murder waa heroic; and. say what we captures me. I will never be taken alive; now will.you help me or not?" While making this speech he pointed a revolver at the soldiers, who were captivated by his remarkable coolness and bravado. They assisted Booth andhis companion to reach Port Eoyal and found refuge for them at the Garrett farm, three miles from Port Eoyal, on the famous road to Bowling Green. Fumed. BJ Lieut, Doherty. Booth at this time was almost certain of making good his escape, He told his protectors that he intended to leave the United States and would go to Mexico to engage in silver mining. When the ex-confederate soldiers, whose names are given as Jett, Ruggles and Bainbridgo, left him ho seemed in good spirits, utterly oblivious of the enormity of his crime. But the hour of reckoning was near at hand. Lieut. E. P. Doherty, of the Sixteenth New York cavalry, with a detail of twenty-five soldiers and two detectives, waa scouring the country. By accident thia party oame to 'the same ferrjn,bj* -which; Booth i.and hi* companions had crossed t the .Rappahannock.

Tbe Great Crime Recalled. Booth himself was made .of sterner stuff. Five minutes past ten on the evening of April 14, 1865, he entered Ford's theater at Washington, where President Lincoln was attending- a performance of "Our American Cousin." Holding in one hand .a revolver, in the other a dagger, . he opened the door of the hox occupied by the presidential party, -placed the revolver close to the -president's head and-fired the fatal shot. At this moment the actor in the man predominated. Ho jumped from the box to the stage, waving the dagger, fell on one knee and shouted: "Sic semper tyrannis." Before actors or. audienco had recovered from their astonishment the assassin had made good hjs escape. When Booth sprang- from the box to the stage one of his spurs caught in a curtain, the fall producing 1 a vertical fracture of the loft log-. a VKtK paldtoladleeandicntlto wll the Rapid Dlih Waiher* Wa«h- •d!M|»i tben to WontOTtemtthottt ««tt]M ; banal.

The Endup* of Booth and Herold, At this moment the murderer must have labored under intense -excitement, for, notwithstanding the most excruciating physical pain, he mounted his horse and sought freedom in flight. Herold, the most faithful of his followers, accompanied him on the journey. When ten miles from Washington, they stopped at an.inn at SurattsvUle, Md., fpr refreshments and then continued .their .expedition until sunrise, when' they arrived at Bryan town. Here a surgeon, .named Dr. Mudd, set Booth's broken limb and persuaded him to rest until evening. Next the conspirators found shelter in the farm house of Samuel Cone, near Port Tobacco. This man was a fanatical. '•'Secessionist and took a lively interest .in the fugitives. -.He introduced them ,to a contraband,trader ; wbo took them .'to a dense forest near his home, where • they remained f6r flVe days waiting for a chance to cross the Potomac into Virginia. ,(I am ,now. quoting • from history.) The opportunity . s finally came. The river was'erossed, and the conspirators prqceeded on their way td:Klo1iinond. At'Port Con way;,on the •Bappahanno'ck river, they encountered throe ex-soldiers of the confederacy. Instead of avoidtoff them.

Of the five he had known one, Capt, Jett, personally. Taking- Rollins, the ferryman, with them, the soldiers proceeded to Bowling Green, where they found Jett in a tavern. Driven, into a corner, the trooper made a cleun breast of his connection with, Booth's escape, and accompanied the soldiers to Garrett's farm. Sergeant Corbett'e Fatal Shot. Lieut. Doherty and his men reached the old farmhouse at two o'clock In the morning. The lieutenant dismounted, knocked, and seized old Garrett as soon as ho had opened the door. The old farmer swore that the two fugitives had left his house, but his son Informed the officer that they were hidden in the barn. The soldiers at once surrounded the rickety structure and demanded the surrender of the inmates. When no response came to this summons, they piled brush and hay against the barn. This significant measure induced Heroltt to give himself up; but Booth appealed to the lieutenant to give him a chance for his life and offered to fight the soldiers singly. The challenge was, of course, declined. Meanwhile the men hod set nrc to the barn. The bright flames revealed the assassin, leaning on a crude crutch, in the act of starting .toward the door. At this moment Sergt. Boston Corbott fired the shot which struck Booth in the back of the head and produced death a few hours later. And thus closed the second act of the great national tragedy, on April 26, 186B. Booth!! Omvo at Baltimore. The-body.-of Booth waa taken to Washington., An autopsy was held and the remains identified. The story that Booth escaped and that som» other body w»s substituted is without foundation. This rumor is repeated about once a year, although it should have been set at rest long ago. After-the inquest the body was buried in one of the cells of the old Washington penitentiary. There it remained several years when it was given to members of his family.
