At precisely the same hour—ten o'clock—another ruffian pene- trated into
Mr. Seward's sick room, injured Mr. Frederick Seward. so seriously that he is not expected to recover, wounded Major Seward and a male nurse, and then fell upon the help- lees and prostrate Secretary, who was in bed, and hacked him about the face. This fellow, too, escaped, owing to the want of presence of mind in the astonished household. But Mr. Seward had not been mortally wounded, and though very weak from his previous sickness, it is hoped that he may recover. Neither assassin had been captured on the 15th of April.
