THE DIART OF WILKES DOOTIT, taken from his body after his capture, is now In possession ol the proper investigating committee, having been handed over to it by the authorities. For some reason its contents'were not used on trial. U shone that he was an agent of the Con federate Government, and received none/ from It, and that at one time aiicast. the plan was to kidnap Mr. Unroll. It is Wdvved to implicate only Booth and Uarrold In the assassination. The entry made on Friday, 21st ot April, one week after the murder, shows that U roast have been written in a perfect agony of mind- It describes his posi tion with a hiokcn leg In the midst ol a swamp, alone, an outcast, an a*sas-Ir, weighed down by hie guilt and a feeling that God would refuse for gjvincffi. It is altogether such a cry of human agony as seldom finds expression is words. KCBUASKA ASP COtOUADO lULLfI.

IJtc words declaring uil persona of African descent born in the united Suics to he citizens coiutltute neither the soul nor tho body of the bill, nor aiu they any pat tot it, as enacted into a law. The amendment was not acceptable to the Senate In that form, and it bad to bo withdrawn the next day ana a sab i<riinteoflend, which now coDßllturaspart of the act. ihe bill, as introduced, was completed, abolishing all discriminations bet-veen the Inhab itants of tho United State* on account of race, color or previous condition of servitude, and se curing to ill alike the equal benefit of nil laws for the protection of person sod iprooerty, and sub jecting alt to the same punishment and none ether, for like oflences.

All tbc rights be longing to the citizen were secured to any inhabi tant of the land hy the terms ot the first eectiou, ce originally introduced, and which at the time and now constitutes the vital part of the bill. In dh cuffing the first section in the Senate, I treated it aid not the words declaring "persons o!

Without the woid every inhabitant of the land bos secured to him all the rights pertaining to citUcn«bio. The words declaring all persons boro In tho Hoi led Slates and not subject to any foreign power i o be citizens were only declarations of what the 'aw already was. The only thing I have to re gret In regard to this act. Is that we have not a President who is disposed fillhfblly and efficient ly to execute Us provisions. 1 shall not. on the present occasion, undertake to Indicate my future action in regard to the com plicated questions which are upon us.

Referred. the House considered Mr. Stevens 1 bill for the rtcocstruci'on of the rebel Slates. Sir. PAINK spoke at length in opposition there to. He denounced the present State Governments as piratical governments, which to this time boo rested on the souls of Andrew Johnson and his Kot then) and Southern satellites,hut would hence lorth rest on the soul of the rash young gentleman fioro Pennsylvania, Mr. btoveca. It would really teem as if be (Stevens) had some lime longed for the President's bread-ana-huttor. Mr. BINGHAM opposed the measure bocans* he recognised tbs power of tho people lq qstab- ISsb guarantees, and the safeguards of the peop'e depended on the incorporation into the Const totlon of tbe great amendment proposed by the Reconstruction Committee. That did not pre vent farther Constitutional legislation, bat ihG bill neither stood with the Constitutional Amend ment nor the duty of Congress to give due protection to citizens of the United States within the disorganized States. Let the f attire aafety of the Republic rest on the irrepealable guarantees imbedded in tbe Constitu tion, and not opon respectable legislation of tbe Insurgent States. so he would hare the lately rebellions States go on and perform acts tor the ratification of the Cotmltutional Amend ment, even though they were not regularly organ ized States, and the ratification of those acts sub sequently by Congress, wo aid legalize them. Aa to the Supreme Court, its powers were very limned. Its appellate powers reared npon the will of Congress and could readily be taken away. This bill was very offensive to him. It attempted to restrict the right of petition, which the Constitution express ly fa;bade. It looked as If drawn by a crowned despot. It declared that all persons who were in rebellion, and bad once taken an oath to the Con stitution of the United States, were no longer cu- Ixtna ofthcDi.ltcd States, and conld rot become so except through forms of naturalization. lie submitted that Congress bad no colorable author ity for declaring, first, (hat a tni'dlon of people of this country were no longer citizens, and second, that they conld late no steps lor organizing the State Governments un til Congress passe an enabling act permuting them to do bo. Id answer to a question, what ' remedy be himself proposed, he eata he wished the measure referred to tbe Joint Committee on deconstruction. Mr. Bingham also objected to other provis ions of tbe bill, one of which declared that no per son should be deprived of his right tovotobccanse of conviction and sentence for any crime oiber than treason. Icanrteution or misprison of treason, it was declaring in otTcct that thieves, robbers, murderers, and midnight assassins should never be deprived of thejclcctlve franchise on account of being convictedoteucb crimes. While he was wil ling to assert all the* rightful powers of this GoTercmcLl, he would never consent to Incorpo rate hy law In the slalnlcs of the nation a provi sion that would deprive the people of the right of altering or amending their legislation—a provision which this bill contained. Congress had not even the color ufa right to pass such a law.

A lonely Utile cottage, about tout miles (Tom Valparaiso, Indiana, and forty mites southeast of Chicago, was the scene, on tho cold midnight of Tuesday, of one of tho most horrible and cold- blooded crimes that it has ever been the doty ol vho press to relate. VTbito 'lie quiet farming neighborhood was Plcepimr. a man—rather a fiend In tinman shape—burets la the door, ehoois dead two of the Inmates, an aged lady of some eeveriy year*, and bis own wife to whom be bad been but two years married; shoots, heats find braises a young girl, and then sets fire to the house and bums it down, to cover the silent witnesses of hie fourfold crime! The circumstances In detail are as follows: About two years ago. Chauncey Page, a man about Jhlrty-two years old, now the murderer and tr.ccLdijny. married a yonng, nay girl of only twenty summers, named Emma Goss. She lived with her mother and her stepfather, Mr. Benjamin 1 one, a wealthy and esteemed farmer, whose home was in the town of Union, about four miles west of Valparaiso. The old people were mem bers of the “iianeese'* orderof Christians,® sect re sembling the Quakers in dress and customs. They never vote or resort to the law in any case, are unict and peaceable, and bear the best of character among their neighbors. After Iheir marriage Page and hlt» yonng wife moved to Valparaiso, where' he worked al the watch-maUng trade with Mr. A.’ Kogera. ilc appears to have been of a very quick tempered and tyrannical disposition, and In a very short time iheir married life became intolerable (oboth. In three months they separated, the bride return ing to her stepfjiher’a root and the husband starting off on « peddling ton-, in which occu pation be La? he-u engaecdmoet of the lime since, travelling through Indiana, lowa and Illinois, and having no permanent abode, though frequent ly returning to Valparaiso. Previous to his marriage he had lived in California fur some years. Be bad some properly in Valparaiso, be- I sides hie slock ot jewelry which he carried, and Is supposed to be wonh some JG.WO or 57,000. I About a year ago hla wife applied for a divorce on the grounds of HI treatment, failure to render I support, and abandonment. The case was dis missed for some Informality, but a new applica tion was made about two months ago and the trial was to come off this week. Page has made fre quent ond open threats that his wife should never obtain a divorce from him, sndwvnt so far In his malfpnUy as to offer a mao fifty dollar? to seduce bis wife so that hcwoaldbave ground on which to base an application for separation I On Monday night r«ge returned to Valparaiso and stooped at ibe Gould Uonso. Bis name I* «cen on 'be register, giving his iesid“nco In Chi cago. Be bod first written “lo"—probably intend ing lowa. On Tnesdav he wml out to Mr, Long ? honscand eat some time with bis wife and her mother, apparently in s friendly manner. About eleven o'clock, when the family were asleep, he retn - nfd asalu and knocked for admission. Be had learned during the day ibat Mr. Long was absent, visiting a sen some ten miles away. The o'.d Indv came to the rioorand inquired who was there. It- answered “Pace,’* and she told him that he could rot come in at (bat hour ol the night. IViihont further delay Page burst open the door, and drawing a alx-ehooiing revolver fired, and the old lady of seventy years felt dead al hU feet. Ills wife, who was sleeping in an adjoining room, rusted ont and laljiugon her beg ged him not to kill her mother. Wlihou*- a word the fiend raised her by one arm, placed the pistol at her head, fired, and his yonng wife too fell, without a groan, upon Ihe floor, a corpse. In the bed with Mrs. Pago was a young girl, diu'-htcr of a near neighbor, Mr, Martin Hudohm, about seventeen rears ot age, an invilid. She was called “Hetty' 1 llndolpb, and was spending the night there for company’s sake in the absence of Mr. Terrified by the fearful scene without she drew the bod clothes over her bead lor coccealmeal, and in doing so left one foot exposed. The Infuriated man Uncovered this, and rendered more desperate, like a beast, by the taste of Wool, or determined to leave no witness behind him, rushed to the bed. seixed her by the foot and threw her upon Ibe floor. Then raising the helpless victim by tbe left arm and placing the revolver against her face he fired,and the ball passed Ihrongh beneath ihe upperpait of the nose, coming out below the other » ye. Again he fired and the ball passed ’through the right shoulder; ogam, and one of the feeble wrists was shattered; still again, and the load passed through the thigh and lodged in the lower part of the leg. The contents of the revolver were now exhausted, and the three victims la» at the murderer's feet, appa rently dead. lint when Ibe morning should come Iheir cold faces and bloody wounds would bo tearful evidence of his work, and so tin Ir honsc must become their tomb, and fire ob literate the trace of blood. So tbe murderer took the lamp which had been left, with me light part ly mined out for the night, and dashed it Into fragment? upon the floor; then teaching up to the bureau, he lit a match ned applied It to the oil, nml the room «ns In a blase. Then be seined the rirl and dragged her prostrate form into the I'ame. bho crooned and moved, and seeing that bis work w»s not complete, tho fiend mired a heavy chair and da*hed It npon her head. Iho poor victim groaned again ani arnin tho tonrderons blow fjiinwcd. with riiOiiHh of life left to think that she nui'tfticn' dsa'h. she 'Oppressed the cry which her agony would extort, Placing his ear to her face, nnd hi nring nohreslh, the murderer deemed niswoik complete and fled* 1 , , , . _ qjic flames of tho burning houoo shol up t.rightly Into ibo air and gave tho first liKnoMhohorrlJ de;d.
