LEIDY & FHIPPEN. The Assassination. Since Saturday tbepeople have been a ferment to learn the latest news Hams'/' lifdncerning President Garfield, and the | pj | ances for or against his z'ecovery. f; £ jj| nday morning and during the en- |!^ Jife day the reports were of a more . fpficouraging character, and it was pped that the wound would not Stove a mortal one. These hopes were ^^^ ispelled, however, on yesterday, M> 3 || rhen the news came of high fever, girireat pain and symptoms most al- | rming. About 6 o 'clock last evenly' the news was announced that the President was dead, and a hush fell | pon the people, peculiar and distressing, Flags were draped and Iitknots of men congregated at the * Street corners, talking of the terrible ^^ iffair, and muttering vengeance. Sud j ^ i ^ denly there was a stir, and the glad Sews, denying the President's death "• Iwas brought. The flags were robbed iS 'of their indications of mourning, and there was joy because of the good news. • However, this was of short duration, f m for again the click of the telegraph jWi'^ announced more unfavorable symp- || torns, and all intelligence since goes l|; to prepare the country for the dread | § annoiinceinent of death! Before this' llpaper reaches its readers this news will probably come. II' Vice- president Arthur has gone to p. Washington, called there by those in attendance upon Garfield. Unthinkjing men. throughout the country are laying blame upon Gonkling and Arthur for the terrible crime commit 1 ted by Gilleau. but the sober second thought will no doubt do these men . the jnstioo-. th. at every man is, entitled Ho. A telegram received hero at A small sum of money was found in Koenig's barber shop, Saturday evening. The owner can have the same py proving up; and paying for this, notice. Con. Corkery now has a full team at work in his shops. Charley Ward is boss at the corner of Main and Sixth streets, and Clement Ryan, a Dubuque boy, and Corkery himself manage the old stand. Last evening Pat Hopkins paid the boys fifteen dollars, the consideration on their part being that they would make no noisy demonstration inasmuch as the Nation's President was supposed to be dying. Mr. King, Superintendent Parker will send six extra coaches to LeMars to accommo-! 0. L^ v Berg, date the crowds who will wait to visit Sionx City on business next Monday. One car will be especially provided for those good people, who only want to see the anmals. Round- trip tickets only 50 cents. 10: 30 says: The President is- sinking rapidly The attendants have abandoned all hope. The. Liberal, after receiving the above from a passenger on the Con tral train, ( the news purporting to have been received at Cherokee) tele graphed to that place, and learned that no such news had been received over the wire. At this writing the latest news received is dated at Washington, 8: 30 a. m., and says: " Presi dent Garfield is reported better." j The murderer Gilleau is strongly guarded in prison. He is wholly unconcerned apparently, only showing nervousness! when the reports indicating the probable recovery of the President. It is positively asserted that Gilleau had allies, and that he was signalled by one of these confederates when the President's carriage reached the depot. LATEST.— The following telegram received at 3 o'clock, brings good news. That it may but foreshadow the recovery of the President every American heart will wish. Dr. Reyburn, one of the attending physicians, has just come from White House and says the symptoms are ' more favorable than at any previous hour. Couxtui,.— The macting of the city council was held at- Mayor Woodard's office Saturday evening. The usual routine work was passed through kur- j Hart, ricdly, and after Clerk Myers had tendered his resignation ( which was laid on the tables) and the bonds of city treasure were approved the council adjourned to meet on Thursday evening of the present week. The Mayor lias purchased con fort able chairs and tables for the use of council, and the room tcmporariy occupied makes a very eonfort.' iblc place for the Conscript Fathers. But permanent) quarters will have to bo secured in some central part of town. FROM CHEROKEE.— N. P. Coe. of Washington township, came in from Cherokee this morning. He reports a big crowd and pleasant time. Mr. Coo says that Saturday-- morjaiug„ Jii « - old soldiers' meeting opened with every propect of a joyous time, but that at an early hour the news of President Garfield's assassination was re- Sportsmen's Pourtli of July. The celebrated Gateway Shooting Club observed the anniversary of American independence by several first class matches yesterday, near Gehlen's Grove. Notwithstanding the heat and dust a largo crowd assembled to witness the contests, which were interesting to those who admire skill and nerve.

Mr. Coe says every part of the three days' exercises had been carefully arranged, and the boys all expressed themselves as delighted with their treatment. An immense throng of people was present. POLITICAL.— To- morrow the representatives of the six Counties comprising the Fiftieth Senatorial district will meet in this place for the purpose of selecting a candidate for Senator on the Republican ticket. Three names arc mentioned— Curtis, Chase and Robinson— but the light lies practically between Curtis and Chase, The former . has a solid county as much encouragement behind him, while Capt. Chase, though he managed to secure his county delegation, is oharg cd with having resorted to foul means in the accomplishment of his end ; The Captain is not a popular man with the masses, because of which we hope lie may be nominated, as that step will make the Democratic victory more easy. There no doubt will be lots of fun at the convention to- morrow. Judge Eccleston, ot Lyon county, is in town. The Liberal's bulletin boards have attracted large crowds since the assassination. E. If. Israel left for the east yesterday afternoon. He will be absent about ten days. Prof. S. N. Fellows, and Mr. A. N. Fellows left yesterday for Iowa City. The latter will return about the 25th.

We understand that there will be some effort to have a " ward building" put up on the north side of town. This, it seems to us, would be wiser than the completion of more room in the present building. There is a large number of primary scholars on tho north side of town, sufficient, in fact, to fill a room, and the erection of a building on that side would prove a convenience and a blessing in rough pnd Btormy weather.
