The Baptist minister, who heard let lecture, told me the next day that her denunciation against the church were too sweeping ; that the chtrsh did not brand the Abolition movement as an iiel movement, but considered it eminently Christian; that the church was doing all ahe could in this etoae. I asked him if the abolition cause waa eminently Christian, why did you organize a Christian .Slavery Society in Worcester, .the other day, Then our Society is so much older, and ready to receive you? loa virtually said, by organizing, that e were anti-Christian. Why did the priests in Boston, in the midst of your revival, pray God to put a look in Theodore Parker's mouth? Simply because It did not believe right : not that he is wanting in mod morals, sympathy, humanity, justice and truth. sid I, what did your brother from Boston last summer tell me? that 4 they were spewing out their fith and slime indiscriminately, and their meetings vers Tammany Hall gatherings.' Said my friend ' Kent, who atood by listening, How many Anti-Sla-; Terr sermons have you preached since you came ten?? Who entertains the Anti-Slavery lecturers ? To whom do they go? "What waa Henry C. Wright called, while here last spring, in the midst of your revival, but an infidel ?' Thank God there ia progress bjmen begin to feel that priests are nothing but men, endless.

She tells me that her - health is better than heretofore, and that she has met with tho kindest reception all. through the State. She bat stirred up our pure minds V uch an extent, that we shall send for ilenry C. Wright to visit us immediately, and assist us to dedicate two new meeting-houses which have been built the last season, one Baptist and the other Methodist. I apprehend that neither will care to have him come, but we have con cluded mac ne is tne man, neat in mm. mcu buwc time in the winter, if he can be obtained, we will have Wendell Phillips, to deliver one or two of his Lyceum lectures. , -Thus we progress here as well as in otner places. Even in old Virginia, the Boston Journal brings us the news that there is now an insurrection. This is but the fruit, of slavery, though the index of progress. But freedom will have to march over the dead bodies of many before her banner can float over a redeemed people. October 19, 1859. G. W. M. T Bet. J. W. Loouew, as a. Slave and as a ' Feeexax.

Mr. Young pre-. aiding. The announced purpose of the meeting was -to hear addresses from various individuals on Slavery , and Temperance ; but as freedom of speech was the 'order accepted for the evening, a wide range of thought was expressed, and a more than incidental ; reference made to the recent scene at Harper'a Ferry. 'Those who indulged in desponding mood in view of new persecutions anticipated were in a decided minority. The others, with a philosophic eye discovered early future for a settlement of the ever-vexing Hwion or slavery. Among the speakers were the venerable Austin Steward and his daughter, who have been holding anfi-lavery meetings in this vicinity; Mrs. Mary 8hadd Cary, editor of the Provincial Freeman, Chat-, Canada West; William F.

The killed and wounded in yesterday's conflict is as follows Killed, six citizens and fifteen insurgents : wonnded. three insurgents, prisoners five. The prisoners have been committed to Charles town Jail, to await the action of the Grand Jurr. They will be indicted and tried in a few days. The question of jurisdiction has been settled in this way: The local authorities are to try the prisoners for murder, and meanwhile the United States authorities are to proceed on the charge of treason. Gov. Wise said to U. S. District Attorney Ould that he haa no objection to the general government proceeding against the prisoners, that is, what will Iks left of them by the time the Virginia authorities have done with them. Brown is better and has made a fuller statement, in which he says he rented the farm from Dr. Kennedy six months tince, and the rent is paid till next March ; he never had over twenty-two men at the farm at one time, that belonged to the organization, but he had pood reason to expect reinforcements from Maryland, Kentucky, North and South Carolina, and Canada ; he had arms sufficient for fifteen hundred men ; he had two hundred revolvers, two hundred Sharpe's rifles, and a thousand spears ; he left them at the farm; he had abundance of powder and other ammu nition ; he brought all the arms, from time to time, from Connecticut and other eastern points, to Cham-bersburgh, Pennsylvania; they were directed to J. Smith & Sons, Kennedy Farm, his assumed name. They were packed in double boxes so as to deceive the parties who handled them on their way to the farm. He says he .made one mistake in either not detaining the train on Sunday night, or permitting it to go on unmolested. This mistake, he seemed to infer, exposed his doings too soon, and prevented his reinforcements from coming. The names of all the parties on Sunday night, except three white men, whom he admits be sent away on an errand, are as follows, with their proper titles under the Provisional Government : -! . - WHITES. . Officer. Gen. John Brown, Commander-in-Chief, wounded, but will recover ; Capt. Oliver Brown, dead ; Capt. Watson Brown, dead ; Capt. Aaron C. Stevens, of Connecticut, wounded badly he has three balls, and cannot possibly recover. Lieut. Edwin Coppie, of Iowa, unhurt; Lieut. Albert Hazlett, of Pennsylvania, dead ; Lieut. Wm. Leman, of Maine, dead ; Capt. John E. Cook, of Connecticut, escaped. Private Stewart Taylor, of Canada, dead ; Charles P. Tidd, of Maine, dead ; Wm. Thompson, of New York, dead ; Adolph Thompson, of New York, dead ; Capt. John King, of Ohio, raised in Virginia, dead; Lieut. Jeremiah Anderson, of Indiana, dead. With the three whites previously sent off, these make a total of seventeen whites. NEGROES. Dangerfield, newly of Ohio, raised in Virginia, dead ; Emperor, of New York, raised in South Carolina, not wounded, but a prisoner. The latter was elected a member of the Provisional Government some time since. Lewis Leary, of Ohio, raised in Virginia, dead. Copeland, of Ohio, raised in Virginia, not wounded, a prisoner at Charlestown. Gen. Brown has nine wounds, but none fatal. Bushels of letters have been discovered from all parts of the country. One from Gerrit Smith informs Brown of money being deposited in a bank in New York to the credit of J. Smith & Sons. It appears to be one of many, informing him from time to time as money was received. THE FRAME-WORK OF THE PROPOSED REVOLUTIONARY GOVERNMENT. Baltimore, Oct. 19. The following documents, found among Brown's papers, were "endorsed : Provisional Constitution and Ordinance for the People of the United States ; PRSAMBLX. Whereas, Slavery throughout its entire existence in the. United States is none other than the most bar barous, unprovoked and unjustifiable war of one por- , tion of its citizens against another portion, the only conditions of which are perpetual imprisonment and hopeless servitude, or absolute extermination, in utter disregard and violation of those eternal and self-evident truths set forth in our Declaration of Independence ; Therefore, we, the citizens of the United States, and the oppressed people, who, by a recent decision of the Supreme Court, are declared to have no rights which the white man is bound to respect ; together with all the other people degraded by the laws thereof, do, for the time being, ordain and establish for ourselves the following Provisional Consti tution and Ordinance, the better to protect our people, j property, Uvea and liberties, and to govern our actions. .

Baltimore, Oct. 20. Gerrit Smith's letter of the most importance is as follows: Peterboro', June 4, 1859. - Capt. Johw Browx : Mr Dear Friend, I wrote you a week ago, directing my letter to the care of Mr. Kearney. He replied, informing me that he had forwarded it to Washington, but as Mr. Morton received, last evening, a letter from Mr. Sanborn, saying your address would be your son's home, viz.. West Audover, I therefore write you without delay, and direct your letter to my son. I have done what I could thus far for Kansas, and what I could to keep you at your Kansas work. Losses by endorsement and otherwise have brought me under heavy embarrassment the last two years, but I must nevertheless continue to do in order to keep you at your Kansas work. I send you herewith my draft for two hundred dollars. Let me hear from you on the receipt of this letter. You live in our hearts, and our prayer to God is that you may have strength to continue in your Kansas work. My wife joins me in affectionate regard to you, dear John, whom we both hold in very high esteem. I suppose you put the Whitman note into Mr. Kearney's hands. It will be a great shame if Mr. Whitman does not pay it. What a noble man is Mr. Kearney ! How liberally he has contributed to keep you in vour Kansas work I Your friend. GERRIT SMITH. , A Press in Danger. So great was the excitement in Washington, growing out of the Harper's Ferry affair, that on Tuesday, says a correspondent of the Baltimore Sun, one of the publishers of the National Era (an anti-slavery paper,) made application at the Central Guard House, asserting that threats had been made to destroy their property, and they had reason to fear that an attack would be made iu the course of the night. Lieut. McIIenry assured him that a watch would be preserved over the property, though he had no reason himself to apprehend such ait attempt. The chief of police arriving, instructed the guards to pay attention in that direction, but there was no indication of any such movement through the night. t5FTh Washington State, the Douglas organ, n. the following effort to raise a mob lor the destruction of the Era and Republic offices : That there are desperate Abolitionists in this community, prepared to apply the match to the Union, cannot be reasonably doubted. Have the National Era and Republic any subscribers in thit city ? If so, such are in hostile array to its durable well-being. We suspect that the bloody scheme of Harper's Ferry had its aiders and abettors in Washington. We hall not be surprised if it is a concentrating point for the concocting of desperate Black Republican schemes. The Fright Extesdixo. The Adjutant General of Pennsjlvauia has taken away the arm of a volunteer company of colored men in Philadelphia, in consequence of the insurrection in Virginia. Perhaps our legislature will le terrified also, and re-consider their action in relation to the militia. - We wonder how people have been able to live with one whole company of negro soldiers in Philadelphia, that has only 660,000 inhabitants. We hope the Cuahing G uard and the Veterans of this city will be on the alert. We have two colored barbers in this city, and it would be an awful thing if kthey should use their razors on the throat of all the people some . night.-Newburyport Uerald. - , TRIAL OF BROWN. Charlkstowjt, Va."t)ct. 25. Eight magistrates are on the bench, Colonel Davenport presiding justice. At half-past 10, the prisoners were brought into Court, under a guard of eighty arm en men. Guards were stationed around the Court-House, and bayonets are glistening on all sides. Charles B. Hunting and Andrew Hunter act for the prosecution. Brown and Coppie were brought into Court, manacled together. Brown appeared weak, haggard, and eyes swollen from the effects cf the wound in hisjiead. Coppie is uninjured. Stevens also looked haggard and depressed. The prisoners were severally charged with treason and murder. The Court asked if the prisoners had counsel, when Brown spoke as follows : , . I did not ask for any quarter at the time I was taken ; I did not ask ta have my life spared. The Governor of the State of Virginia tendered me assurances that I should have a fair trial, but under no circumstances whatever will I be able to have a fair trial. If you seek my blood, you can have it at any moment, without this mockery of a trial. I have had no counsel. . I have not been able to advise witli an v one. I know nothing about the feelings of my fellow-prisoners, and am utterly unable to attend in any way to my own defence. My memory don't serve me my health is insufficient, although improving. .. There are mitigating circumstances that I would urge in our favor, if a fair trial is to be had ; but if we are to be forced, with a mere form, to trial for execution, you might spare yourself that trouble. I am ready for my fate. I beg for no mockery of a trial no insult ; nothing but that which conscience gives or cowardice drives you to practise. I ask again to be excused from the mockery of a trial. I do not even know what the special design of this examination is ; I do not know what is to be the benefit of it to the Commonwealth. , I have now little further to ask other than that I may not be foolishly insulted, onlr as cowardly barbarians insult those who fall into their power. At the conclusion of Brown's remarks, the Court ; assigned Charles J. Faulkner and Law son Botts as counsel for the. prisoner. The first-named gentleman, after a brief consultation with Brown and others, addressed the Court, stating that he could not, under any circumstances, enter upon the defence of the prisoners on so short a notice. It would be but a mockery of justice. Mr. Botts said he did not feel it to be his duty to decline the appointment of the Court- He was prepared to do his best to defend the prisoners, and he hoped the Court would assign some experienced assistant, in case Mr. Faulkner persisted in his declination. Mr. Harding addressed Brown, and asked him if he was willing to accept Messrs. Faulkner and Botts as his counsel. Mr. Brown replied : ' I wish to say that I have sent for counseL I did apply, through the advice of some persons here, to some persons, whose names I do not now recollect, to act as counsel for me, and I have sent for other counsel, who have had no possible chance to see me. I wish for counsel, if I am to have a trial; but, if I am to have nothing but the mockery of a trial, as I said, I do not care any thing about counseL It is unnecessary to trouble any gentleman with that duty.' , Mr. Harding You are to have a fair trial. Mr. Brown There are certain men, I think Mr. Botts was one of them, who declined acting as counsel ; but I am not positive about it, I cannot remember whether he waa one, because I have heard so many names. I am a stranger here. I do not know the disposition or character of the gentlemen named. I have applied for counsel of my own, and doubtless could have them, if I am not, as I said before, to be hurried to execution before they can.reach me; but, if that is the disposition that is to be made of me, ail this trouble and expense can be saved. Mr. Harding The question is, do you desire the aid of Messrs. Faulkner arftl Botts as your counsel i Please to answer Yes or No. . Mr. Brown I cannot regard this as an examination under any circumstances. I would prefer that they should exercise their own pleasure. I feel as if it was a matter of very little account to me. If they had designed to assist me as counsel, I should have wanted an opportunity to consult them at my leisure. Mr. Harding Are you willing these gentlemen should act as your counsel ? Stevens I am willing that gentleman ahould (pointing to Mr. Botts.) Mr. Harding Do you object to Mr. Faulkner? Steven Xo, I am willing to take both. Mr. Harding addressed each of the other prisoners separately, and each stated his willingness to be defended by the counsel named. The Court issued a peremptory order that the press should not publish detailed testimony, as it would render t he getting of a Jury before the Circuit Court impossible The preliminary examination being concluded, the Court remanded the prisoners for trial before the Circuit Court. . The examination to-day was merely to see whether the charges are of sufficient importance to go before the Grand Jury. To-morrow the Jury will report the bill, and the case will then be immediately called for trial. There is an evident intention to hurry the trial through and execute the prisoners as soon as possible, fearing an attempt to rescue them. In the case of servile insurrection, thirty days are not required between conviction and execution, as in other capital convictions. ;The principal witnesses to-day gave precisely the same testimony in detail as was published in their statement. Beyond a doubt the trial will commence to-morrow morning, although much difficulty is anticipated in obtaining a jury. Brown's objection in refusing the aid of counsel is, that if he has counsel, he will not be allowed to speak himself, and southern counsel will not be willing to express his views. Washington, Oct. 25. A letter from U. S. Senator Mason, after due investigation at Harper's Ferry, say there was no insurrection in any form whatsoever on the part of the inhabitants of that town or vicinity The fact is undoubted that not a man, black or white, joined the invaders after they came into Virginia, or gave them aid or assistance in any form. So far as can be discovered, not one of the nineteen escaped. Not a slave escaped, or attempted to escape, during the tumult. Of the few carried off by Cook across the river, all escaped from him and came safely back : but one, who, it appears, was drowned while crossing the river, homeward bound. Chaxbersbcro, Pa., 26th. Cook, the filibuster insurrectionist, was arrested last night, and committed to await a requisition from the Governor of Virginia. He was arrested at Montallo, 14 miles from this place. Hia printed commission, signed by Brown, was found on his person. He was fully armed, and made a desperate resistance. He was almost starved, and came from the mountain into the settlement to obtain provisions. He acknowledged having three companions on the mountain. Parties have gone in pursuit of them. - . Richmond, Va. 26th. Gov. Wise having learned by telegraph to-day of the arrest of Cook, at Cham-bersburg, immediately sent on a requisition for him to the Executive of Pennsylvania. Charlestown.Va 26th. Brown, the insurrectionist, makes no confession- He says he haa full confidence God will rescue him ; he has many times been in as gTeat a peril as now, but God always befriended him. He fears nothing.- x South Natici, Oct. 17, 1859. Our village church was nearly full Sunday evening last, to enjoy the pulpit services of Mrs. Caroline li. Dall, of Boston. She conducted all the exercises oj the desk with an ability and persuasiveness and acceptance which her well known gifts impart to her. The best way to settle all doubts about woman's sphere as a preacher or at the altar, is to give her a hearing.
