It is apprehended that tiie affair at Harper's Ferry is more serious than our citizens seem willing to believe. The wires from Harper' Ferry are cut, and consequently we have no telegraphic communication beyond Muucacy Station. The Southern train, which was due here at an early hour this moming, ha not yet arrived. It In rumored there is a stLOipcde of croes from this rotate.

M Another account received br train says the bridge across the Potomac was filled with insurgents all armed. Every light in the town was extinguished and the hotels, etosed in all the streets, were in pos session of the mob, and every road and lane leading thereto barricaded and guarded. Men were seen in every quarter, with muskets and baronet, who ar rested the citizens, snd pressed them into the service, including many negroes. This done, the United States arsenal and government pay-house, in wliich was said to be a large amount of money, and all the other public works were seized by the mob. Some were of the opinion that the object was entirely plunder, and to rob the government of the funds deposited on Satur day at the pay-house. During the night the mob made a demand on the Wager Hotel for provisions, and bodv of armed men enforced the claim. The citizens were in a terrible state of alarm, the insurgents having threatened to burn the town. The follow ing has jurt been received from Monoca- cy, this side of Harper's Ferry : " The mail agent on the Western-bound train has returned to Monocacy, and reports that the train w as unable to get through. The town is in powewlon of the negrnes, who arrest every one they can catch, and imprison. The train due here at S P. M.. could not get throuuh, and the gent came down on an empty engine." Baltibobb, Monday, Oct. 17-2 J P. M. The Wcntern train on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad hao just arrived here. Its officers confirm the statements first received touching the UUturbance vo the armony, -and saw the captain, who-e r.ame i Biix mith ; I was kept prisoner for more than an hour, and saw from five hundred to six hundred ne. groes, all baring arms ; there were two or three hundred white men with them ; all the houses were closed. 1 went into a tavern kept by Mr. Cbabsebs ; thirty of the inhabitants were collected there with arms. They said most of the inhabitants had left, but they declined, preferring to protect themselves; it was reported that fire or six persons bad been shot. Mr. Somen was escorted back over the bridge by six negroes. The train with the Frederick military is laying a Point of Rocks. A train with the directors of the Pennsylvania Railroad on board, Is ou the other side of Harper's Ferry. It was believed that the insurrec tionists would leave as soon as it became dark. Orders have been received here that the train shall stop at Sandy Hook until CoL Lu, who is following in a siieeial train, arrives. These are anv amount of ru mors, but nothing certain. Mobocact, Tuesday, Oct. 18 1 A. M. Tlie special train, with Col. LeK'g command, passed this station at 11:30 P. M. It is supposed that there is difficulty in adjusting the breaks in the road this side of Harper's Ferry, as nothing has since been heard of the expedition. Episewpal CJeaerat Cenveariea.

The, Hcrew-sttamahip iantmenin, of the Ham burg line, from Southampton on the 4th inct, arrived here last evening. The advice thus received are not so late as those supplied by the Jvbrt Bntea ; but we are placed in possession cat London journals to the day of sailing, and from them derive additional news of interest. According to the Daiiy Asm-, ft is said to have been decided that the Great eastern is to leave Portland on the if h and juoreed to Holyhead. Under the provisions of the mercantile marine acts the Great EomUr would not be permitted to carry passengers, and the Directors would be liable to heavy penalties if they did so before receiving the certificate of the Marine Department of the Board of Trade. NO passengers will, therefore, be conveyed on her trial trip. The Timet sars : During the past week no fewer than forty total wrecks have been posted en the books st Uoyd's. Among the more calamitous was the destruction by nre of the ship Schan Jekon, from Calcutta to the West Indies, with SOU coolie emigrants. Another heavylnss Is the total wreck of the Sovereign f Ike fieaa. There are, in addition, several missing vessels, respecting which the most painful forebodings are entertained. The London papers announce the death of that eminent non-eonformist divine and theological writer, Johx tamu J amis. The event occurred at Birmingham on the 1st in st. The convict bankers. Sir Jobs Dzas Pacl and Stba-bajc, now in prison under sentence, will be released from confinement on the 23d inst. The British ship Providence, arrived at Falmouth, reports that she was fired into while passing Tarifa, on tiie tth nit. One man was wounded, some stanchions' Esq., of Glasgow, Is published in the Buiietm cf that eityi - Iojm, Sept. !. 1- Mi D Pt The fatal day of Vtllafranca prostrated my hopes at a moment when we nad the deliverance of my country within sight ; nay. almost within the reach of our hand, like a ripe fruit ready to be plucked ; and here I am again, a poor exile, as I was four months ago, only older by ten years from the bitter pang of disappointment. I say designedly "disappointment,' nnd not "deceit.'' Of deceit I cannot complain, for I took good care to guard myself and my country against even the possibility of deceit ; but I feel my heart nearly broken by disappointment, unwarranted by circumstances, unaccounted and unaccountable. Without that thunderbolt from a clear sky the Til-lafraaca arrangement this moment at which I write, Hungary weatid have already filled a page tn the annals of history than which none eqwal stands yet on record ; because the whole nation was waited, reedy, and resolved as scarcely ever before. All the feelings which sometimes bring division into a national house-holddlfjerence of religion, language, race, ami distinction ef claws had melted into one great common resolution to get rid of the banditti rule of the House of Austria as soon aa the war would take its logical expansion. -And the positive knowledge ef this fact only adds to the bitter pangs of my disappointment. To be thus stopped at tbe moment when we were stretching out oar hand to pluck tbe ripe fruit of liberty Is distressing beyond description. Weil, it Is as it is, and st aat be borne. It shall be borne undespondlngly, though not without grief. 1 feel tranquil in my conscience that I have done the duty of an honest man and of a good citizen, by not neglecting to try whether or not events might be turned, on n solid basis, to the profit of my native land. - And some consolation I have besides. I bad occasion to est reassured on the point that no diplomatic tricks ia fact, nothing that the lying craft ol despots msy devtse-will ever for a moment divert my nation from its unalterable determination to take advantage of every reasonable opportunity for reasserting lis Independence. I have learned that this resolution can as Utile be broken by terrrorism as it can be shaken bv any eon-cessions which the HArsacaes may devise in the hour of their need. I have learned that Hungary knows how to endure, how to wait, but never will change. I know that the nation is as well disciplined as it is determined. I have bean confirmed, together with my nation, in tbe conviction that no great European question can ever receive its definitive solution without us ; nor can Europe be brought to a settled condition without the rights and legitimate claims of Hungary being taken into due account. From this convtctloa we desire the of our pericnce of the past win be tamed to the edrtae ef the future, so that If war should again break out '" it may not be attendee with lese glory to onr arm than In these later years, and that, ander alt ctreuaa- . stances, the Emperor may rely en year bravery ana . devoted loyalty. Unceasingly occupied in super! a- , tending and encouraging your labora, 1 shall always J be happy to reward your services. " " TUB 8TATR OF iTAXT. .vf ciacrLAB or trx asJuasiAJi Bonnnwrnr. " af tha Xsassa Tease. Pansa, Sunday, Oct S P. M. i A circular nets haa been sent by the Sardinian : Minister of Forrlaa Affairs to the diploma tic agat .' of that country at the Courts of Ixmclon, Paris, Bar- .f Un and fit. Petersburgh, for the purpose of coeaatani eating it to those Governatenta. The doeuaseat tat question la couched, I understand, in lucid and. . earnest terms: and forcibly sets forth surgaments ia ' favor ef the formation of n strong and fasaepewdent kingdom of Upper Italy, euflacaently powwfut tas -cotuitet balance tbe influence of Aastrta, anal keep In . check her domineering tendencies. The coaatltution, of such a State would, it is urged, dispel the apprehensions sad tranquitis the mind ef Knrope, at the " same time that it full I led the tost wishes, se ssodly and unanimously expressed, of those Italian eoantrien t which hate lately shaken off tyranical govern stent. The note points out the Impossibility of Piedmont's re- '-sisttng Austria, should thai Power, at any future time ' think fit to attack her, anlesa she he put la a snore fa- 7 vorable posit ion for so doing than has hitherto been 1 secured to her . Intrenched In Venice and tbe sjnaeV -1 riiateral, Austria will alwavs press upon Italy, if . there be not tn that country a Power capable of insplr- ' ing her with respect. With Austria's tWtre over- ' looking her Lombard provinces, and with n nntiiaa -Dukes established by Austrian inffurtiee ia tae ether , countries adjacent. Sardinia would had herself hemmed in by hostile Governments, and her resist- . ance to an attack might be desperate, but must be in- ' effectual. Sisnor Dabozbida points oat that peace, ' made on such bases, would be in reality only a trace, -to be broken by Austria w ltenever she saw what she held to be a favorable opportunity. Tbe people of Cer.tnl Italy, with a true Instinct of the necessities ' of the case, have shown it to with great justice argued in tlie note by their recent conduct hew inlis- i pensable they deem the Jbrmatioa of the Klandosa of Upper Italy. Forgetting their long-standing feelings . of rivalrv. anu discarding old jealousies, the different ' States voted, one after the other, with the utmost or- ' der and unanimity, tneir own annexation to Pied -i moii t. Their w lab, the note proceeds to say, has the . strongest claim to respect ; its realisation would not be the sanction or introduction of a new and subversive principle, or of one opposed to European law and " precedent, since the principle that would be reeog-
