Hl* WIFE, IN KISSING HIM, INTRODU CES STRYCHNINE INTO HIS MOUTH. General Baker Chokes Him and Forces Him to Disgorge it. Washington, Nov. 10, 1865. All (ley yesterday Wirz wrote in the little whitewashed room at the Old Capitol till his lelt arm was swollen so that he could write do more. Y T et nowhere in the pages of his manuscript did lie betray ireniulmisness either of mind or muscle. He wrote here al most incessantly during the last twenty four hours of his life, taking stimulants freely, hut not to intoxication in the slightest de gree, and finished a diary up to this morn ing. At Early Day. About two hundred and fifty yellow tickets ol admission to the Old Capitol yard, regu larly and elaborately printed like cards of ad mission to a circus or popular show, wens issued ; perhaps one filth of them to repre sentatives of the press or persons who, from a morbid desire to see death done, repre sented themselves to be such. The scaffold was erected in one corner of the yard, the coldest, it seemed, for the sun which slioue against the side of the Old Capi tul prison house did not warm the soldiers who formed the hollow square around the gibbet. The gallows was an old one used before in civil executions, having become brown and weather-worn from laying exposed in the prison yard. The scaffold was in plain view from the windows on the east side of the prison, from the housetops in the vicinity and Ironi the trees in the Capitol Park, but no portions of it could be seen from the streets. Scenes Before I lie Drop. All along the north side of the yard wall, upon a broad beat, the sentries paced, over look'n' the gallows, the prison yard, the al leys. the adjacent buildings and all the up i r laches to the prison. Up to this broad pa ra It; the spectators flocked. Shorthand re p Tiers closed up to the phalanx of gallows 3 u;irds ns close as possible witlfiu the fall ot the condemned man’s voice. The photo grapher located his camera commanding as good view of tire drop as ever rebel cannon at Andersonville commanded that vile en closure. Some two or three hundred curi osity seekers crowded each other ou the ad jacent. housetops, and noisy, vituperative soldiers clambered into the trees of the Capi tol Park. Just seven women, with a couple of little girls, bad struggled up to the root of a brick building overlooking the yard and gazed—unlike women—unpityingly. The men in the tree tops howled out jokes about the “dead line” pendant from the beam about Wirz, &c., and hurling opprobrious epithets at those in advance. Several limbs broke, and men were precipitated from their perches. Shingles aud tin roofs proved too fragile, and a number of noisy watchers went suddenly out of view. But the jeers, cat calls and oaths from those outside the walls did not abate. The bronze figure of Liberty on the capitol dome, with her seemingly stern face set toward the death place of Wirz, was for the time a picture of Justice with the baudage off witnessing her own aveuge ment. In the CondemncdCcH. At fifteen minutes past ten o'clock Captain Walbridge, the commandant of the prison, proceeded with a corporal’s guard to the condemned cell for the purpose of bringing lorth the prisoner. Wirz hud spent the fore part of the night in writing, and had snached three hours ot steep towards dawn. He awoke eheertul and refreshed, and par took of a light breakfast about six o’clock. So perfectly self possessed and resigned bud lie been that be left nothiug undone. The few books be hud were done up in neat pack ages, with the request that they be forwarded to his children. Those volumes borrowed front the circulating library or kindly fur nish by Father Boyle were properly assorted and lelt for delivery. The journal of his life was completed up to the last day, aud his room was put in order for the final vacation. Key. Fathers Boyle and Wiggett were pre sent wlteu Captain Walbridge entered and in firmed him that the time had come lor the execution of the sentence. Captain Wirz rose and submitted himself to the folds of the black robe with the pendant cowl; drank from a tea cup a heavy dose of whiskey nervously gnawed a piece from a plug of to bacco, which he threw back on the seblf; cast a hurried glance around the apartment, out tlie wiudow where the sun shone on the town, turned, aud with a light step, walked Past the guard at his door Into the hall, ac companied on either hand by his laitliful spiritual advisers, who consoled with words tiud the sigtii of the crucifix. At a turn of the Mans he caught sight through an opeu w ot ’be gallows and the expectant t low'd. Amoiuenttuy start or shrinking, as if loin a shock, and he passed on, with that xpressionof countenance mistaken bv many Ti* us , but which in reality is far from it. iUs, he came to the door of the loom of 1 ■ I .

Con versaiion instantly became hushed to low murroered comments upon the bearing of the one central and sombre figure that ad vanced through the line hedged with bayo nets and mounted without a glance to the right or left the rough stairway that led to the platform and the noose. Seated upon a stool and facing the quarters he hau just left, the gallows swaying over him, a soldier standing rigidly at a shoulder arms in either corner ot the platform, the two reve rend fathers pouring words of comfort and consolation iuto his ear,and the officer charged with the execution pronouncing in clearly audible tones the findings of the court mar lial and the sentence, W irz was as conspicu ous to tlie gaze of all within the enclosure as gaping vision could desire. The condemned had been draped with the shapeless robe of serge which has figured iu all the executions known to the walls of the Old Capitol prison, anti which, drawn closely about the chin, increased the natural pallor of the face and made the appearance of the man still more repulsive and indefinable. His whiskers closely cropped, lips apart and his closing teeth, black with the use of tobacco, eyes suukeD, forehead retreating and topped with disheveled and noddy hair, added to the wierdness of the look he has worn daily at his trial, aud that has impressed all who have ever seen him. Meantime tlie enumeration of his crimes, as declared .by the court, went forward. Father Boyle bunt constantly over bim and frequently pressed a small crucifix to his lips, urging perfect trust iu his God and counselling entire, outspoken candor in these his last moments. At first Wirz averted his face, though occasionally replying steadily that he looked lor perfect peace and happi uesß above, and knew that the Snpieme Kuler recoguizcd his innocence of the crimes for which he suffered. Once he turned liis eyes towards the Capitol, where, between himself aud the majestic dome that rose be yond, he could see the tree tops swarming with men eager to see him pendant from the rope, and could almost distinguish the tenor of the inhuman anathemas they gleefully shouted as i hey remarked the perfec lon of the final arrangements for his death. As if this sight touched him more deeply than the rest, his head, was speedily turned and his undivided attention given alternately to his spiritual adviser aud the reading of the charges against him. Neither atiitude, ex pression nor utterance indicated other Iban the most perfect self-command and calmness ou the part ot Wirz. Directly upon seating liiinscll he had crossed his tegs, and with his arms listlessly restiug upon his kuees he sat slightly leaning forward, apparently the most unmoved auditor and specta tor of the thrilling aud painful scene. To the words of bis priest lie frequently nodded assent aud replied earnestly ; hut as the tenor of certain specifications struck upon his ear he would start, aud with a hit ter sneer contorting his features, shake his head for a few seconds and renew his protes tations of innocence to Fathers Boyle and Wiggett; aud thus throughout the eighteen minutes of life that intervened to Wirtz from the lime he leit the cell to the moment he plunged into the depths of the unknown realm he sat upon the threshold of the por tal that would usher him iuto another world without a single prayerful utterance of contrition and devoid of but one absorbing desire—to reiter ate his claim to innocence. Involuntari ly the spec tutor realized Unit this wus not tlie man wbo has given to the Andersonville stockade the historic horrors which are a sleeping aud waking nightmare under tlie roots of thousands ol Northern homes and have stricken the hearts aud whitened locks of mothers aud fathers everywhere. At tweuty-five minutes past ten the find ings of the court had been read aud the sen tence was given. The prisouer kissed the crucifix presented to Lis lips, and afterwards nodded as if to signify his resigned accept ance of his fate as the penalty tell upon his ear. Three minutes later aud the last of the documentary authority for hanging bim was pronounced, and needed but the endorsement of his death to complete the record pertain ing to the crimes for which be suffers. His baud was then shakkeu by Major Russell, Captain Walbridge, commandant of the prisoD, and by Fattiers Boyle aud Wiggett. Each received a composed expression of thanks for his kindness from the criminal. His arms were drawn back and pinioned closely behind him, and the noose was thrown over his head aud drawn loosely up, with the kuot resting beneath the lobe of the left ear. An officer was about to produce and adjust the black cap, when those nearest him saw a slight tremor of the lower jaw, which, as it increased, gave the whole face a ghastly grin; but the black cap speedily curtained the face from further view ; aud lelt the cowled and sombre sinqie stuud- j ing rigid for the fall. Ail but the officer who was Charged with spiiugiug the trup retired j from the scaffoU, aud as the latter passed swiftly to either side of the drop, withdraw- j ing the bolts that were used to sustain it iu : addition to the spring, Wirz, who seemed to ! have expected tlie fall immediately, was seen • to sway slightly, but even then there ap- j peared to he a determined rtcuveiy of equili brium, aucl be became motionless. Slaudiug thus eight or ten seconds, when the officer j below raised his cap as a signal, aud there j was a crash of the lalliug trap, a sudden jeik and tension of the rope, aud a dark and lengthened form swung convulsively beneath j the scaffold. For a moment there was a hush upon the multitude within aud the 1 people upon adjacent house tops as all eyes | noted the spasmodic twitching of the lower j parts of the criminal’s body, aud some strong nerved man iu the crowd made an audible ! calculation of the number of tremors that pass through the frame before life becomes j totally extiu'et. Then came something like i a cheer from beyond the prison walls, where i all available objects commanding a view ofi the scene within were crowded with citizens and soldieis, ami gradually there was lilted ! from tlie nearer spectators the awe occasion- | ed from sceiug a life pass violeutly from most infamous manhood to the daikest valley of the shadow of death, and there was a hum j of comment accompanied with a general j crowding nearer the scaffold At the same tune a photographer adjusted his instrument upon the roof of an adjoiuiug abed, with, its lens covering the scatfold aud the wretch that quivers limn its beam. Fifteen minutes more pass ed without material event. The people who had beeu on the roofs of houses and in the branches of trees, together with Consider able numbers from the prison, retiied trom the contemplation ot the scene, leaving only a few oltieeis and a large group of the mem bers of the press to witness the last of the tragedy/ .About “ quarter to eleven a sur ; geoo approached the pendant body, careful ly raided tlie lower part of the hood and pecreofor a little time into the dead mans nice aud felt for the flutter of his pulse.

Mr. tkliada Ufa Ua fas called upon bv SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 18. 1865. several persons last night, as was also Father Boyle, who communicated information pur porting to come from a member of the Cabi net* to the effect that if Wirz would acknowl edge that Jeff Davis was connected with the atrocities at Andersonville his sentence should be commuted. Although Mr. Scliade did uot place full confidence iu the reports he considered it to be his duty to relate it to the prisioncr at his last conference with him. Captain Wirz, in reply said, “Mi. Scliade, you know I have always told you that I did not know- anything about Jeff. Dav's. He had no connection with me as to what was done at Andersouville, and it I knew he had I would uot become a traitor egainst him or any one else to save my life.” The following letter was written by Wirz before mounting the gallows : Old Cafitoi. Piuson, Nov. 10, 1865. Mr. Sciiadk—Dear Sir: It is no doubt the last time I address myself to you. What I have said to you otten and often, I repeal; accept my thanks, my sincere, heartfelt thanks, for all you have done ior me. May God reward you—l cannot. Still I have something more to ask of you, and I am con fident that you will uot refuse to receive my dying request. Please help my pour family -—my dear wife and children. War, cruel wai has swept everything from me, and to day my wife, my children are beggars. My life is demanded as an atonement. I am wil ling to give it; and I hope that after awhile I will be judged differently from what I am now. If any one ought to come to the re lief of my family it is tlie people of the South, for whose sake I have sacrificed all. I know you will excuse me tor troubling you again. Farewell, dear sir. May God bless you. Your thankful H. Wmz. Among the spectators present at the exe cution was a man from Vermont, who al leged that he had travelled post haste from his home in that State for the express pur pose of witnessing the death struggle of Wirz. He attracted considerable notice while the former liuug suspended by offering an impromptu and not very reverent petitiou to Heaven that “To this end may all the Southern leaders come." Wirz’* Attempt to Commit Suicide. A startliug fact iu connection with Wirz’ imprisonment, which it lias not been deemed expedient to publish heretofore, may now be given to the public. This is im> less than an attempt to poison Wirz, which, but for the quickness of the official present, would have been successful. When Mrs. Wirz came on here it was the desire of the government to give her every facility for enjoying inter views with her husband, with only such pre cautions as were indispensably necessary.— The Secretary of War, therefore, requested General L. C. Baker to arrange for such in terviews, aud to be present at them. The first interview of Mrs. Wirz with her itusband was in his ceil, just after the commencement of his trial. Then- meetng was uot at all ot the diameter that would be expected between man aDd wife under such circumstances.— There was no appearance of tenderness, no embrace or kiss, no tears, ami no apparent emotion of any kind ou the part ot either. The lady s first words were. How are, you, Wirz ?” “Weil,” he answered in a gloomy voice, “I am getting along pretty well.” She looked at him a moment aud her next words were— “ When did you have on a clean shilt last? 1 I Dever saw you look so dirty tu my lite.” Wirz replied that lie had had oue on with in the last week, and begau to complaiu of his misfortunes. Tlieir conversation through out was cald and ttippaut. She took leave of hi miu the same manner, and General j Baker made arrangements that she should see him twice a week. She represented that she had not means to pay her way while in this city, aud as Wirz had nothing to give her, Geuerai Baker, pitying her condition, supplied her with titty dollars from his pri ; vate funds. The secoDd interview was as j cold and as devoid of affection or emotion as I the first. The conduct ol Mrs. Wirz towards | her husband at tiie first interview had ! aroused General Baker's suspicions of her | good faith in visiting him, and he watched j them very closely. He noticed that Mrs. j Wirz kept moving some small object in her | hand nervously. They sat one at each end ; of the small pine table in the cell, and Geu j oral Baker sat at the side. He noticed that j they hitched close to the table so as to get I tlieir kuees uearer together under the table, I aud Mrs. Wirz's movements seemed to iudi cate that she wished to pass something under j the table to the piisouer. Witz wa3 talking j principally about the testimony then being i t ikeu on bis trial, denying the truth of the | charges against him. General Baker watched the two so closely that nothing could be passed between them without his notice. — He was very strongly impressed with the idea that something wrong j was iutended. The third interview was on Sunday, October 29. The two exchanged commonplace salutations as be fore, amt indulged in commonplace couversa tiou. Geuerai Baker saw Mrs. Witzs draw off' her glove and saw agaiu tlie nervous mo tion of her hand as though nioviug some thing in it which she desired to conceal. As she rose to go, steped up to Wirz and for the first lime, made a movement to kiss him. Geuerai Baker stood at tlieir sides, where Be could see the meeting ot the lips. It wag not a quick, passiouate kiss ; but Geuerai Baker noticed that they occupied longer than necessary, and tlmt tlie movements of their lips were rather peculiar for a kiss. As their lips parted Geuerai Baker was convinced that she hail passed something from her mouth into his and that he was about to swallow it. He sprang towards Wirz and caught him by the throat, partly choking him for the in stant. General Baker Commanded him to open his mouth, aDd as lie did so he spit out a little ball which he lmd partly crushed and which General Biker picked up. It was somewhat smaller than au acorn, aud was ascertained to be strycnine, enclosed in oil silk aud Coated with liquorice. It is now in General Baker’s possession. Iu getting up Mrs. Wirz bad probably dexteiously convey ed it. to his mouth. In au instant more Wirz would have swallowed it, aud as soon as the outside coating had dissolved, it wr uld have caused his immediate death. Mrs. Wirz was uot again allowed to visit the cell. She left the city nearly two weeks ago, not waiting either to hear her husband's sentence or to see him again before his death.
