INCIDENTS OF THE VOYAGE.
[Correspondence of the Washington Chronicle.]
In the course of ft pleasant conversation
with Captain George W, Dutton, company
C. loth regiment Veteran Reserve corps, who
has just returned from the Dry Tortugas, we
iiave obtained some interesting facts relative
to the conspirators and their trip to the rock
bound fortress which is to be (ior three of
them) their last earthly home.
Captain Dutton, with a surgeant, three
corporals, and twenty-six men, reported at
the Washington Arsenal on the morning ot
buuday, July 16, and, taking charge of the
prisoners, placed them on board the steamer
State of Maine, bound for Fortress Monroe,
which point they reached at 4 P. M. on the
17th. They were then transferred to the
Florida, Captain Budd, all on board, with
the exception ot General Dodd, being entire
ly ignorant of the vessel’s destination.
' At dark on the 19th the Florida reached
Port Royal, S. C., where she discharged a
cargo ol cordage, &c., and coaled. On the
" 1 st she sailed for the Dry Tortugas, reaching
that barren and inhospitable spot on the 24th,
just one week after her departure from For
During the voyage all the prisoners were
more or less atiiicted with sea-sickness, and
at one time half of the guards were unlit ior
duty. Dr. Mudd aud Arnold were particu
Sprangler, although quite sick, was given
to practical joking. Finding that while sick
lie could get from the Surgeon, Dr. Por
ter, a modicum of French brandy, he con
cluded to take sick at various odd times, al
ways with pains for which nni galhet s/nritus
is supposed to be a sovereign cure; but his
trick was discovered and he was, much to
his chagrin, obliged to quail Jamaica Ginger
in place of the more palatable beverage
lie was generally quite talkative, and ex
pressed himself as being satisliecl with the
action of the military Commission, but con
tiaued to assert his innocence ot participa
tion in the crime of assassination. In a opn
versation with Captain Dutton, lie remarked
that he knew nothing of Booth’s designs, and
t mt even after the murder, while Booth was
p issiug througli the theatre, he was unaware
oi the foul deed which had been committed,
“flie (act is, Captain,” said he, “Booth was
a privileged character at Ford s. He had the
ran of the house at all times, day and night;
hid access to the dressing rooms, and ire
q iently came to the rehearsals unannounced,
and always by the rear entrance, lie was a
great favorite, and spent money fretfly.—-
Whenever he came with his horse he always
tll H e d tor me to groom the animal, and I
have many a time blacked his boots and
done other menial work for him. I did not
close the door behind Booth. It was a spring
door which you can see when you get back
to Washington, and closed of itself unless
vou held it open. There was nothing unusual
iu my holding Booth’s horse on the night of
the murder, for I had done it twenty times
before. 1 didn't see how the Commission
■wbicli tried me could have decided otlier
•wise in my case, considering the evidence ;
butjl am not guilty of having anything to do
with the crime.”
Spangler was very lively during the voyage
and several times ran up the ladder from the
hold three steps at a time, heavily ironed as
he was. He was quite jubilant over the
idea that he would not be a prisoner Jor hie.
“I ll come out all right-six years is not
such a long time after all,” said he, }ou
need not felicitate yourself on having a short
time to stay, SpaMgler,” said Dr. Mudd. I
don't know where they are taking us, but it
it is to the Dry Tortugas, there is no more
chance lor you than for me. None ol us
wiil live more than two years.”
Vp toUfiatime not a word bad been drop-
ped in reference to the ultimate destination
of the conspirators, but they had occupied
themselves in discussing the probabilities of
a residence at Albany, a trip to some port? on
the Gulf, or a sudden death by drowning.
O Laughlin was very reticent, rarely enter
ing into conversation even with his fellow
Mudd carried with him a printed copy of
the evidence adduced during his trial,and took
great pleasure in picking it pieces. He is
described, by our informant, as a man ot
good education, considerable sbrewduess,
and strong rebel proclivities. lie wa3 never
off his guard, always pondered a question
well before returning an answer, and in
variably spoke of Mrs. Sueratt as having
been unjustly executed. It will be remem
bered that on his trial, Mudd denied all
knowledge of Booth previous to the visit of
the lame assassin to the Doctor's house, but
to Capt. Dutton he confessed that he was ac
quainted with Booth for some time before
the murder. Iu regard to that deplorable
ciimc lie asserted that he did not know of it
until after Booth’s departure.
.Mudd was very gloomy during the vpyage,
and fears were entertained hv the guard that
he contemplated suicide. lie was accord
ingly closely watched, very much to his in
"Why do you keep me so closely guard
ed?” said he to the officer iu charge of him.
said Capt. D., “I am afraid I
may lose you.”
“ How lose me? There is surely no chance
for me to escape here,, and you do not sus
pect that I would kill myself?”
“That is just what I tear; and until I get
my receipt for your body from the com
mandant of the post to which you are as
signed, I deem it my duty to have your every
step strictly watched.”
“ Well, Captain, you heed have no fear on
my account. I would put an end to my
miserable existence, but for the thought of
eternity. lam afraid to die, although - 1 can
bear this terrible life, which is so much worse
When off the coast of Florida, the wea
ther being warm, the prisoners were allowed
to sleep on deck', and during the day their
lions were removed. They were very grate
ful for this unmerited kindness, and showed
their appreciation by giving as little trouble
as possible to those who baa charge of them.
When the steamer came in sight of the
Dry Tortugas on the 24th, and it wa3 made
known to the criminals that this treeless,
lifeless place was to be their prison, ibeir
emotion could not be checked. The}’ cried
like children, Mudd and Arnold, in particu
lar, eviucing the most poignant grief. The
former paced the deck, wringing iiis hands,
and exclaiming, time and again, “There is
no hope for me.” Arnold bewailed his fate
in piteous tones. He said, “I wish this were
Albany, or any other place where my mother
and sisters could sometimes see me, I might
bear my imprisonment. But here I shall have
no one to live for.” Mudd declared, when his
paroxysm of grief had subsided, that he
should lose no opportunity to effect his es
cape. When asked where hq would go if he
succeeded in eluding the vigilance of the gar
rison, he exclaimed, “Home! Government
would not touch me there. It could not
hunt me down in the midst of my wife and

[From the Farts Moulteur, June 21.]
Cartouche and Mandrill would be only pig
mies compared with the young man whose
adventures wc are about, to relate, if justice
bad not come to interrupt aud cut short the
high celebrity he was preparing for himself.
He is at present only twenty-four years of
age, and already his exploits are well worthy
of his most celebrated predecessors on the
road of crime. Fernet is his real name, and
Bostard his feigned name, and jhe one under
which lie lias just been condemned by the
tribunal at Lille to six months’ imprisonment
for vagrancy. Tins individual was born in
Paris. At the early age pf fourteen he com
mitted a murder; at eighteen he was con
demned to live years' imprisonment for an
extensive robbery at Bar-le-Duc; and he had
only been eight flays in captivity in that town
when he escaped, go was, however, re
captured and condemned over again. But
scarcely had he been incarcerated when he
agnin contrived to escape After having had
five different escapes from the prisons of
Fiance, lie was condemned to twenty years'
penal servitude at Cayenne,in the commence
ment of the year 1804. Last year five con
victs escaped from Cayenne, and Pernet was
the chief of the band. lie took also the
command Os the small skiff to which they
confided their fortunes. They had scarcely
put to sea, when the military post on guard
of the prison perceived them, and fired upon
them several limes, but none of the balls
took effect, and Pernet and his companions
were enabled to get out to sea, where tpey
remained for fourteen days and as many
nigte. having no other provisions than a
nioMel of bread and the salt water of the

English. The inhabitants, believing them to
have been shipwrecked, lavished the great
est kindness upon them; nipi; indued, it was
high time, for' all five were in such a slate of
prostration tliatlhey were obliged to be re
moved from the skiff like so much baggage.
They remained for some months otf this isl
and s but soon became tired of their monoto
nous life, aiid Fernet, with his companions,
set out for Spain, where they committed a
most extensive robbery both of money and
dry goods Having been tracked by the po
lice, they fled to Corsica, where they passed
themselves off as big merchants, having im
portant houses in Spain. They were beauti
fully dressed, thanks to the clothes they had
stolen in Spain, and their pockets well filled
with money, for somo time at least, sq that
it was pretty easy for them to procure friends.
They lived a jolly life for a time, but were
soon out of resources. Pernet did not mind
trifles of that kind, so he at first told all liis
friends and acquaintances that ho had lost
his portfolio, which contained lOG.poOf. .Ip
potes, and several other niost valuable arti
cles. He then published by the criers of
Ajacio his loss, offering l(),000f. reward to
whoever would bring back the portfolio,
which it is needless to say was never found.
The stratagem succeeded admirably. All the
friends, touched with the misfortune of the
two supposed Spaniards, put their purses at
their disposal, which kiu4 privilege vyas not
abused by the gentlemen for fear pf exciting
suspicion. Soon, however, they tyere ac

mate of Great Britain probably not agreeiug
with him, he embarked for France, and ar
rived at Boulogne on the 15th. He was with
out resource, and in travelling by the coach
from Boulogne to Calais, he made the ac
quaintance of a charitable person of the for
mer town, to whom he related, not his ad
ventures, hut the disagreeable position in
which lie was placed iu consequence of the
loss of his papers. This person took him
under his patronage, and even procured em
ployment for him at Boulogne; but Pernet
did not long remain there, and on the 20th of
June lie presented himself at the police office
of Lille, asking fur a ticket for his lodging,
being utterly destitute. At first the police
had some suspicions as to the identity of this
individual, although his certificate" was in
perfect order under the name of Bostard.
They commenced by locking him up, and

public prosecutor, and at the bar of the court
of justice he waited until his condemnation,

now about to suffer his punishment, at the

Phenix Bank Robbery.

Embezzlement, Blaeli - Mailing, “ Pretty
Waiter Girls,” Self murder.
Suicide in the Station House..
A TV’lsonev Kills Himself with
Amount of Embezzlement, $318,000.,
The Phenix Bank defalcation, says the
World of Saturday, was further developed
yesterday in the most astounding and shock
ing features of crime.
Embezzlement, black-mailing, conjugal in
fidelity, prostitution, suicide—nearly all the
horrors in the catalogue of crime—seem to
have followed thick and fast upon each other
to complete the fearful and tragic drama.
Even yet there is much of mystery con
nected with the whole affair. The case
stands partially out at present in panoramic
horror, with still more astounding develop
ments appearing every hour.
There is a fearful sameness in nearly all
exhibitions of embezzlement, and especially
of bank defalcations. A confidential clerk
abstracts his employer's money for specula
tion. He loses; becomes bolder and repeats
his theft; keeps a mistress who caresses him
until she gains his confidence, and then
blackmails him; through fear of exposure,
and to satisfy her demands he steals again,
and again, until the discovery of the first
link in his chain of crime reveals the whole,
and iu the grasp of justice, aghast and ter
rified, the guilty wretch confesses all, and
fearing his fellow-men more than the mys
tery of death, completes the terrible round
of wickedness by suicide. The histories of
nearly all great embezzlements from banks
or employers show' that these features ap
pear iu nearly every individual case, and in
the present they appear in horrid distinct
Thus far four al-rests have been made:
First, of Henry li. Jenkins, second teller of
the Pluenix National Bank, acting as paying
teller during the first teller’s temporary ab
sence from the city. He was arrested, as
related in the W orld of yesterday, on
Second, John H. Earle, formerly a book
keeper in the Phoenix Hank, and late a clerk
in the office of Martin, Smith & Cos., in
Broad street. It appears that Earle shared
in the money obtained by Jenkins's embezzle
Third, Genevieve Lyons, alias Vieve Brow
er, alias Brown, formerly a- “pretty waiter
girl" in a concert saloon, hut lively the mis
tress of Jenkius. It appears she also shared
in the moiiey Jenkius obtained fraudulently,
and also blackmailed him repeatedly ou dis
covering his stealing from the bank.
Fourth, Charles Brower, alias Brown, alias
“Sam Davis.” It is alleged that he was a
Joyer of the girl Genevieve, and that he also
blackmailed Jenkins, iuformed of his defal
cations by her.
These are all the arrests that the police
have as yet reported. It is rumored, how
pyer, that other parties are still at large, for
whom diligent search is making, aud they
may be arrested to-day, or the police may
already have some of them iu custody,
though desiring not iy disclose the fact at
present, in hopes oF still further develop
ing what seemed at first one of the most
complicated mysteries of crime that ever
was woven by “the thread ot circumstan

Earle committed suicide in the station
house yesterday morning. What part of the
evidence may have been hidden by his death
is a rpatter ot somewhat interesting conjec
ture ; perhaps spare of the earlier features of
the embezzlement, but none, it is believed,
in regal’d to the essential fact of its occur
rence. Whether he was the originator of
the whole affair and used Jenkins as the
“cats’-paw” in the beginning, or whether he
learned of Jenkins knavery only after it was
accomplished, is not now a mhtter of cer
AMOUNT OF THE EMIIEZALEMKNT.
At first it was supposed that the amount
of the defalcation was about $250,000. The
clerks remained at the bank urjtil a late hour
Thursday night examining the accounts, and
continued the labor yesterday. It is now
believed that the total amount is $518,000.
It is also stated that the bank has a surplus
fund of $270,000, besides the earnings of the
past six months, which, apart from the July
dividends, are considerable. lion. John Mc-
Keon, who represents the bank as counsel,
stated that its operations will not be inter
fered with by the defalcation.
• THE ARREST OF JENKINS.
Officer McCarty proceeded to the residence
of Jenkins, at No. 10 Union place, at IQ
o'clock on Thursday morning, for the pur-
Cpse of arresting his man. lie was received
y Mrs. Jenkins in a very courteous manner,
notwithstanding the unseasonableness of the
hour for making a call, but the lady denied
having any knowledge ot the whereabouts
of her husband. The officer then started on
ft tour of inspection, but just as he began his
search, Jenkins suddenly made his appear
ance, and was immediately arrested. Mr.
Parks, one of the offices of Hie bank, who
accompanied officer McCarty, confronted
Jenkins and charged him with having rob
bed the bank. The cornered man at once
realized the position iu whip!} bis guilf had
placed him, and unhesitatingly acknowledg
ed the crime. Mr. P. asked him to state the
1 amount of money he had taken, but this
Jenkins declined to do, tearing, as he said,
that it might hurt the feelings of the officers
of the bank. The request was a number of
limes repeated, but the defaulter was' inex
orable, and said that he would wait and see
how things went on before he should say
much about the matter. -
[ He was but little surprised at his arrest,
and'acted with perfect coolness, treating the
officer in the most aflfce manner, and con
senting to accompany him to the station
house without making any ado about the
Before leaving the bouse the officer search
ed every room, bureau, trunk and drawer,
but discovered little bearing on the case.—
Jenkins said that ail papers relative to the
defalcation were locked up in his private
drawer at the hank, and further said that
they would give the bank offices all the in
formation about the matter that they might
Subsequently Jenkins became more com
municative, aud expressed a desire to aid the
officers all in bis power in makiug up the
case. He talked as if he was merely a wit
ness rather than the principal in the matter.
He soon developed the fact that there was
a woman in the case, and said that her name
was Vieve Lyons,alias Brower, alias Brown.
This woman was formerly a “pretty waiter
girl” in Madame Bell’s concert saloon, at
which place Jenkins farmed her acquain
tance. It would appear from his statement
that he formed a very close inti
macy with her, inasmuch as he con
fessed that she had obtained between
$7,000 and SB,OOO trom him in sums ranging
from SIOO to SI,OOO. He said that he final
ly made up his mind to avoid her, but that
she “dogged” him and was assisted in the
operation by her man Brower, who also was
she recipient of SB,OOO or $9,000, which he
deposited to his account in the Greenwich
Jenkin's family consists of a wife and
three children, to whom, it is said, he was
very warmly attached; but for some time
past he has been in the habit of spending
his evenings away from home. Madame
Bell's saloon appears to have been his prin
cipal resort, until determined to “shake”
the woman who had received from him a
good lump of the pile which ho had stolen
from the hank.
ARREST OP EAHLK.
Among the papers found during the arrest
of Jenkins were some implicutiug one James
11. Farle as a receiver of part of the stolen
money. Earle was formerly employed in
the bank, but at the time of his arrest was a
clerk in a business office in Broad street.
He was connected with some of the most
respectable families in Newark and Orange,
The officers proceeded to the office where
he was employed, aud calling the man aside
asked him what he had done with the money.
He at once-owned tip to having received
SIOO,OOO, which, together with $45,000 ot
his patrimony, he had lo6t in stock gamb
ling, Taken to the bank, he volunteered
there the same story, and was then taken to
the Twenty-nipth precinct station-house for

routine of police business, sent below in

pocket-book were delivered to the sergeant
in charge, but no weapon was found upon

This, then, brings the story down to the
time when the four parties were all in ous
Earle was in bis cell, and nothing was
heard from during the night. He was seen
alive at 4 a.m., hut at 8 a. m., when the
prisoners were ordered up, Earle failed to
respond. The doorman shook him once or
twice, but still he did not move, The door
man them discovered a pool of blood, and,
ou close examination, found the prisoner was
dead, having killed himself with a pen-knife,

An examination of the wound showed that
Earle had first cut a hole near the jugular

round and round till he made a hole in his
neck about the size of a quarter of a dollar.
Earle was about 5 feet 5 inches high, ot dark

was attired with much care. He had lost
