OFFICIAL REPORT OF COLONEL LEE. LIST OF THE KILLED AND WOUNDED. The Ontbreak Snrpressed--Rcturn ol the Troops--Various Scenes and Incidents. . The Sun, in its regular edition of yesterday-morning, contained full accounts of the insurrection at Harper's Ferry, up to the very latest moment of going to press, including tke arrivalal of the troops in the town, and. the first atta?k and defeat of the insurgents. It was Captain Alburtis, of Martinshurg, who fought gallantly in the Mexican war, that firsf drove the Insurgents into the house .where they made their final stand. lie had promptly gone te the scene of action on Monday, with volunteers from Martinsburg-, composed mostly of men in the service of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad. Mr. Evans Dorsey, a burden conductor of the Baltimore and Ohio road, who behaved so gallantly in the strike a year ago, and was voted a gold, medal by the company, was seriously wounded in their first assault upon the insurgents. And Messrs. Bowman and Holbert, burden conductors, were also wounded. They were all of the Martinsburg volunteers. Mr. Dorsey, it is supposed, cannot survive. The attack by the party led by Captain Alburtis was made at 3 o'clock on Monday afternoon, 17th, from the west end ef the armory yard. The assault was directed agaicst the paymaster's office, where the insurgents were posted. Seventeen of the prisoners held by them were released by the onslaught. Concern lowing dispatches: The First Battle by Tonnage Men. Harper's Ferry, October ISth 310 A. M. The first battle was mainly fought by the railroad tonnage men frora Martinsbunr. who camedowa m great force, led by Capt. Alburtis. They attacked the rioters single-handed and fought most valiantly. One of the freight conductors, named Evan Dorsey, was shot in the abdomen, and two other conductors, named Bowman and Holbert, were alse seriously wouaded. Mr. Richardson was killed. Ne damage has been done to the railroad or to the bridge, and little or none to the property in the town. The purpose of the insurrectionists seems to have been to hold the town until several thousand slaves could be collected, and then make a stampede through Maryland' and across the Pensylvania line. The parties that have started will be immediately pursued. The Second Battle. Harper's Ferry, 3 A. M., Oct. IS.

The dead body of a man killed last nisht was brought in this morninsr. Brown isthe man whose feats in Kansas as an agitator, obtained such a wide notoriety.

The town beins in possession of the military, the rioters are entrenched in the armory, and hold Mr. Washington and Mr. uangerneid as prisoners. The insurrectionists were commanded bv Capt. Brown, of Kansas notoriety, who gave his name as Anderson to Conductor Phelps. They numbered originally seventeen white men and five negroes, but were reinforced during the day. Allen Evans, one of the insurgents, a white man, is lying here dying, with a ball through nis urease. ie is irom Connecticut, but lias been in Kansas. He says the whole scheme was erot id bv Captain Brown, who represented that the nesrroes would rise by thousands, and Maryland and Virginia would be made free States. Colonel Shriver, of Frederick, has iust had an Interview with Capt. Brown, in the armory. He asked to be allowed to march out with his men, and avowed nls intention te defend nimselx to the last.

All the other white men are unknown, but are supposed to be men who have been connected with Captain Brown in Kansas. It is reported, but not certain, that the rioters have carried off a considerable amount of government funds. No attempt was made to pillage the town or to insuix iemaxes. Official Repoat of Colonel Lee. Lieut. Commanding Lee transmitted yesterday morning the following message to the Secretary of War: At 7 A.M. I summoned the rioters, who had taken refuge in the armory building, to surren- u", li wuuonig w iiuiu lueiu in security uuui luc pleasure ef the President of the United States was known. They declined. The storming party, under Lieut. Green, which had been previously posted near the buildine. and had con certed signals,broke down the door and captured the party.

BALTIMORE, WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 19, 1859. They took the survivors prisoners and released their prisoners at the same time, amongwhom was our late agent's . clerk and assistant, Donahue. Major Russell, of the Marine. Corps, headed his men in person unarmed the scene was thrilling. The insurgents are all fanatical, white livered looking scamps. The Pennsylvania railroad directors will leave Martinsburg for Baltimore on mail time. , W. P. Smith. third dispatch. Moxocacy, Oct. 18,2 o'clock P. M. J. W. Garrett, president: Am on my return from Harper's Ferry. Gen. Stewart, whom I met near the Ferry, asks me to say in his name, that no more troops of any description need come up, as their work is over, except what the U. S. marines may have to do in maintaining guard over the armory and the bridge. Gov. Wise and the Richmond aiid Alexandria volunteers have reached Harper's Ferry. The trains are all safe, and will at once resume their ordinary regularity. We have returned the Frederick volunteers to that place; the Shepherdstown Guard, Col. Boteler, went home cn the mail west, getting off at Kerneysville. The entire Baltimore military, except the Independent GraySj are on the train with me. None of thtm are injured We will reach Baltimore about five o'clock. The company's men have all behaved with bravery and energy. Had those from Martinsburg been properly seconded yesterday it is thought the marines would not have found a victory awaiting them to-day. None of the railroad property in track, bridge, trains or other description has been injured, so far as I can learn, nor was the life of any passenger unduly risked. The engines and cars have proved fully adequate to the extraordinary demand upon us, during which we have transported, besides regular passengers, fully five hundred troops and one hundred irregular volunteers, with cannon and equipments. W.P.Smith. Incidents of the First Battle. interesting statement by an eye-witness . A gentleman who returned from the seen? In the 6.30 train, describes the storming of the bridge and town. The first attack was made by a de tachment of the Charlestown (Va.) Guards. They crossed the Potomac river above Harper's Ferry, and reached the building where the insurgents were posted, by the canal, on the Maryland side. A smart firing occurred, and the rioters were driven from the bridge. One man was killed here and another arrested. A man ran out of the building and tried to escape by swimming the river. A dozen shots were fired after hm, and he partially fell, but rose again, threw his gun away and drew his pistols. Beth snapped, and he drew a bowie knife, cut his heavy accoutrements off, and plunged into the river. One of the soldiers was about ten feet behind, the man turned round, threw up his haEds, and said "don't shoot." The soldier fired and the man fell into the water with his face blcwn away. His coat skirts were cut from bis person, and in the pockets was found a Gap-tains commission to Captain E. H. Leeman, from the Provisional Government. The commission was dated October 15, 1350, and signed by A- W . Brown, Commander in Chief of the Army of the Provincial Government of the United States. A party of five of the insurgents armed with Minnie rifles, and posted in the rifle armory,were expelled by the Charlestown Guards. They all ran for the river, and one who was unable to swim, was drowned. The other four swam out to the rocks in the middle of the Shanandoah and fired upon the citizens and troops upon both banks. This drew upon them the muskets of be tween 200 and 300 men, and not less than 400 shots wore fired at them from Harper's Ferry, about 200 yards distant. One was finally shot dead. The second, a negro, attempted to jump over the dam, but fell shot, and was not seen afterwards. 'The third was badly wounded, and the remaining one was taken unharmed. The white insurgent wounded and captured, died in a few moments after in the arms of our infermant.- He was shot through the breast, arm and stomach. He declared there were only nineteen whites engaged in the insurrection. For nearly an hour a running and random firing was kept up by the troops against the rioters. Several were shot down, and many managed to limp away wounded. During the "firing the women and children ran shrieking in every direction , bnt when they learned that the soldiers were their protectors they took courage, and did good service in the way of preparing refreshments and attending the wounded. ' Our informant, who was on the hill when the firing was going on, says all the terrible scenes of a battle passed in reality beneath his eyes. Soldiers could be seen pursuing singly and in couples, and the crack of the musket and rifle was generally followed by ene or more of the insurgents biting the dust. The dead lay in the streets where they fell. The wounded were cared for. MOSE OP THE BLOODY WORK. Samuel K. Thomas, one of the conductors of the railroad, and engaged in the storming at the paymaster's office, displayed unparalelled feats. He stood within fifty feet of the building, exposed to the fire of those within, and loaded and fired nearly half a dozen times. His coat was perforated with 'balls, and the skin cut from the flesh of his person by the shot. His preservation from instant deaxn seems miraculous. Aaron D. Stevens, a captain of the rioters, shot at tne bridge, was taken into tne Carroll Hotel, where his dreadful wounds were dressed by Dr. McGarrity. Heavy bullets passed through his breast, head and one arm . He said to those aroifnd him that as he expected to die before mornins. he wanted somebody to telegraph to his father, at Norwich. Conn., to say to him that his son died at Harper's Ferry, in an attempt at high treason against the State of Virginia. He was alive at four o'clock yesterday morning. lie is represented as a remarkably fine looking man, six feet six inches high, and possessed of great nerve. While lying in bed a number of the outraged citizens crowded into the room and attempted to dispatch him, pointing cocked muskets at his head, but Stevens, as he lay help less, folded his arms, and looked them calmly in the eye, without uttering a word. George Turner, a graduate of West Point, and one of the most distinguished citizens of the vicinity, was shot on Monday while coming into town. He died during the night. He has a brother in Baltimore, married in the Patterson family. Incidents of the Second Battle. Our special reporter sent to the scene of acrion, furnishes the following: Preliminary Movements The Fortified Insur gents Stormed by United States Marines Highly Interesting Details Stirring Incidents The Dead- The Captvred Insurgents Their Conduct and Sayings Disposition to Lynch Them Fanatical Appearance, fyc, fc. Harter's Ferry, Oct. 13. The town of Harper's Ferry was thronged last night with military and rioters, and martial law prevailed throughout the entire community. No one could pass the bridge without arrest, unless permitted by Col. Shriver, commanding the Frederick military. The precaution was taken to prevent the possibility of the escape of any of me aisiuroers oi tne peace or tne town. Nearly the first object visible after passing the bridge was a dead negro lying outside the pavement with an ugly gash in his throat, and other wounds. No one seemed to notice him particularly, more than any other dead animal. The citizens have not yet recovered, from their astonishment at the civil war which has so saddenlv been engendered in their peaceful community nor their surprise at the boldness and absurdity which characterizes the efforts of the conspirators who have so mysteriously alighted, full armed,in their midst. The insurgents are caged, however, after their work of violence and death, and the people with great anxiety awaited the results of the events of to-day. At about 5 o'clock yesterday morning the mili tary companies, a part of which had been on duty . , I 11 !-UA 1 , . at guard during me iiigut, were uruereu out. The volunteers took possession of the streets sr- rounding the government buildings, and cleared them of spectators. The marines were drawn up witnin tne enclosure, tinder tne command oi uoi. Lee, Lieut. Stewart, of the army, and Maior Rus sell, with their two Dalhereen 12 pound howit zers. The insurgents were in the engine room of the armory, a small buildine at the extreme ena of the government works. They held as their prisoners some nan dozen citizens or weaim ana respectability, and some nait dozen negroes. One of the Baltimore companies, (the Independent Gravs. Lieut. Simpson commanding.) occu pied the railroad bridge, directly in front of the occupied buildings. The military companies of the adjoining towns and the Baltimore companies presented an imposing military display. The scene was exciting in the extreme. The most breathless suspense existed for the half hour which preceded trie at tack. Death was anticipated, and the reckless daring of the few bold and foolish fanatics who set at defiance the authority of the general gov- ernment and the whole military force in their view, created an intense indignation and a desire for their summary chastisement. The appre hensions for the safety of the gentlemen detained in the custody of the insurgents were also painful The marines in the yard commenced manceuver ing towards a close proximity to the building. At length Col. Lee rppeared in front of the enclosure witn Jjieut. Mewart, wno,witn a citizen, was deputed to bear a flag of truce to the insurgents Every eye was upon the two latter as they ap-approached the door of the building. The con ference was long, especially between the insur gents and the citizen, and the patience of all present was nearly exhausted.. At length they retired. It was understood that Col Lee. In summoning them to surrender, offered them protection till the pleasure of the President of the United States should be made known, and that nearly all ot the InenvirAnt. .. --n in f-i ,mr ff 9(i(0TltiniT tllASP rnn. ditions, but the powerful will ot the leader Brown overruled their wishes, and they refused to surrender. Maior Russell then ordered Lieut Green..witha file of marines, to force the large double doors. They rushed towards them, and attempted with their bayonets to force them open, but the strength of their fastenings defied the ef fort. At this time a volley from within increased the excitement o the spectators, Tke marines then tried to force the doors with heavy sledge hammers, but they also proved ineffectual. A double file of marines was then ordered to attack the doors with a heavy ladder. A few powerful efforts shattered the strong doors of this outhouse of the government, which was filled with fire engines, and as they yielded to the force of this battering ram and flew in pieces, an extra shout went up from the multitude. The moment the upper part of the doors went down, Lt. Green and his marines fired a volley into the insurgents with deadly aim. Maj. Russel then sprang upon the ladder and preceded them. The conflict was terminated in a few minutes. One of the marines, private Quinn, was borne off fatally wounded by a shot in the abdomen, -'nd another private, Rupert, received a flesh wound in - the upper lip and had one or more of his upper teeth knocked out. . The imprisoned citizens,whose names havebeen mentioned, then rushed out, and leaving the enclosure were greeted most warmly by their friends, some or them having been confined since Sunday evening last. Two white insurgents were brought out as prisoners, one named Watson Brown, a son of the leader of the insurgents,who was in a very helpless condition from wounds received on Monday, and another named Edwin Coppee, of Iowa, who was uninjured. A free negro from Harrisburg, named Shields Green, a somewhat notorious character, was also arrested. Four or five other negroes were also taken out of the engine-house, who were known to be slaves belonging to the neighborhood, and supposed to have been forcibly detained. But several of the . insurgents had been killed in the assault by the marines, and the most painful and exciting act in the tragedy was the bringing out of the dead bodies. Five of them lay upon the grass, one named J. C . Anderson in the last agonies of dissolution; another, the leader, the older Brown, with a hea. vy gash upon his forehead.and three other wounds upon his body, supposed to be mortal, but still calm and collected, and conversing intelligently, without an indication or emotion of pain, and answering all the questions of the crowd about him. Another son of the leader, named Brown, was was taken out stark and cold, he having been killed the day previous; Stewart Taylor, also killed instantly by a ball through his head and one through his body, and Albert Haslitt, killed instantly. The wounds were shocking to behold, and all were weltering in blood. The writer had a conversation with the dying man, Ander-derson. He said that the elder Brown had been their leader, and he had always looked up to him as a great man. A letter was found in his pocket from his brother, J. J. Anderson, of Chilicothe, stating that the contents of his last letter upon the question of slavery were "devoured with eagerness." Upon the body of Haslitt was found a lock of his wife's hair and a piece of her dress. Upon the, person of the leader, the notorious "Ossawottamie Brown," of Kansas, was found by one of the volunteer surgeons of the division. Dr. David M'Laughlin, the sum of $305 ita gold, which was handed by him over to Major Russell, of the marine corps. In a conversation with the writer as he lay weltering in his blood, he stated inai ne naa ngured in Kansas. and was known as Ossawottamie Brown" or "Old Brown." He had had a son killed in Kansas (as well as two here.) He hated slavery, and he desired to avenge his son's death. His confederates desired to surrender when they were summoned bv Colonel Lee; but he refused because he did not believe tliat the general government would slaughter his companiens for the sake of killing him. He had always treated his prisoners with courtesy. He hoped that his interrogators would not put words in his mouth, but permit i.: i . i , i . v i , iiiui io make xiis own declarations, xie noped Major Russell would permit him to die in peace. and would treat him humanely. Major Russell suggested mat ne nad better not make any declarations calculated to compromise him in law, and also requested the gentlemen present to withdraw from the room in order that he might not be disturbed. It has been stated -subsequently that his wounds are not mortal, unfortunately periia !s lornimseu. The prisoner Edwin Coppee, upon being asked what he expected would be his fate, said that he only asked his country to give him a fair trial and he would abide the consequences. He manifested no concern or apprehension with respect to his punishment. The prisoner Brown, son of the leader, was too debilitated from his wounds to realize his situation. The wounded have been removed to the hospi tal of the arsenal, including the rjoter A. D. Stevens. Such was the excitement on Monday night that Stevens would have been shot in his bed. had it not been for the restraint exercised by others upon those who permitted their passions to become ungovernable. The wretched man stated his willingness to go out in the morning and be shot upon his coffin, but begged them not to shoot him in his bed. He is reported to be mortally wounded; but it is thought by some that his four wounds are not fatal. During the deep suspense pending the attack of the marines upon the insurgents in the engine-house a party of Baltimore "Roughs," recegnized as members of the clubs, numbering twenty or more, were seen right up at the gate of the public 1...: 1 .3 "l. : . l. ,i . . , uu j iu iii '.-, traLu witu a iuu&ei or nae in naild. eager for the fray." Their anxiety to participate in the engagement was so manifest that Colonel Shutt called out to them not to fire, because there were citizens held in the building whose lives they might endanger Finally they were ordered away from their close proximity to the scene oi tne coniest. wnen tne crisis oi toe engagement arrived even the outside military and citizens could hardly restrain themselves from rushing forward, and discharging their arms. Loud calls of order arrested their impulses. When the prisoners came out there were vociferous cries of "hang them" constantly repeated . The companies and citizens were afterwards admitted to the government grounds. and all had an opportunity to view the corpses of the deluded fanatics who had so foolishly forfeited their lives. The iaces oi an tne victims, it was a suoiect ot general remark, exhibited peculiar characteristics. The public authorities have made arrangements for their burial. The marine corps remain at Harper's Ferrv with their prisoners in custody, awaiting the in structions or tne general government as to their present disposition and trial. The Independent Grays, under the orders of General Egerton, were dispatched about 10 o'clk in search of the wagons which were seen to leave Harper's Ferry under the conduct of the insurgents, a day or two since, and also to capture any members of the organization who might be found located at near points. About twelve o'clock the loud cheering of the crowd announced the return of the Grays with two wagon loads of the national arms which they had found secreted in the recesses of the hills. While they were unloading the arms at the armory, the train with the remainder of the Baltimore and Frederick treops was compelled to leave, and they remained behind. me urays will probably return to Baltimore this morning. Among the arms captured was a large number of Sharp's rifles, which were sent to the insurgents at Chambersburg, Pa., by the Massachusetts Emigration Aid Society ,and which were considered by many f the soldiers lawful prizes. Among the arms found in possessson of the insurgents were also found a large number of roughly made pikes, evidently not the manufacture of the Government; This negro weapon was also appropriated as a tro?hy by many visi tors to the scene of action. Col. Egerton gained possession of one-half, cut in two bv a Minnie ball, and discolored by the blood of the fanatic leader, Brown. ADout tne middle ot tne stream or tne toroad Potomac lies the bodv of one of the insursents named Wm H. Lecman. who was shot -on Mon day ,while attempting to make his escape from the town, ins Diack nair may iust be seen floating upon tne sunace or tne water and waving with every ripple. 1 he visitors, upon discovering the body to-day .saluted it with a shower of balls, but the action was one of very questionable taste and propriety. He was honored with the commission oi captain irom Mr. Brown, the following being a true copy or ine document round m his pocket: head-quarters war department, Near Harness Ferry, Md. S Whereas, W. H. Leeman has been nominated a captain in the army established under the Pro visional Constitution; now, therefere, in pursu ance ot the authority vested in me by said consti tution . we do hereby appoint and commission the said v m.

There was taken from the person of Stevens a printed pamphlet of twenty-five pages, contain ing the constitution, &c, of Mr. Brown's provis lonal government. The work is in the posses sion of Col. Lee, and would be treasonable were it not too ridiculous. This extraordinary movement at Harper's Ferry on the part of the abolittonist Brown, character ized by such audacity and folly, is fertile of comment. It appears that he was a monomaniac, possessing a strong will, superior firmness and resources of mind, and that his followers possessed a weakness of mind and character which enabled him to obtain that ascendency over them which red tnem to their destruction.

A number of the officers and directors of the Central Pennsylvania Railroad had been on an excursion, accompanied by their families, and fot down within a short distance of Harper's erry on Monday, when the train was ordered to halt.- The condition of affairs was made known to the conductor, and immediately the train was backed to Martinsburg. A young man of the excursion party, anxious to witness what was going on, left the train and went on a hill for the purpose of obtaining a full view. He was there but a short lime when he was espied and arrested. He protested that he did not belong to the insurgent gang, but that did not effect his release, and he was marched to Charlestown and imprisoned. His friends interceded and he was finally released. John Hulme, Esq , one of the directors and excursionists, states that on the return of the train to Martinsburg the people at once began to arm, and every available weapon was brought into requisition. Old shot guns and rifles, pistols and swords, were put in order, and after obtaining a supply of ammunition, they started for the scene of insurrection. Yesterday the excursionists stopped at Harper's Ferry and went over the ground. A few loop holes had been made by the insurgents 'in the engine house, where they had fortified themselves. A few dead bodies were lying about the place, and the a ppearance of those of the slain insurgents presented more of the bandit than anything else. He noticed one dead body lying on a rock in the river, which it was supposed had been pierced by at least forty or fifty bullets. The following were the directors on the train, and who were detained: Washington Butcher. Benjamin T. Curtis, Thomas J. Firth, M. Morris. Josiah Bacon, John Hulme, Samuel Megarge, William R. Thompson and William B. Fester, Jr. CAPT. OTTAWOTTAMIE BROWN IN BALTIMORE. A man answering the description of Ottawot-tamie Brown, commander in chief of the provisional government of the United States, is said to havebeen in this city on Friday last, and purchased fifty thousand percussion ips. CAPT. BILL COOKE. This man is represented to be a most notorious and blood-thirsty individual. Possessing alarge amount of brute courage, he is reckless of his conduct, and hesitates not to shoot an adversary. Some time ago he got into a difficulty in the neighborhood of Harper's Ferry with one of the railroad employees. The man was very close to Cook and when the latter drew his revolver seized it and turned the muzzle from its aim. Cook discharged it, however, and the charge Eassed through the clothing of the right side of irn whom he sought to kill. Before he had time to fire the weapon again he was felled to the ground by a well-directed blow with a slung shot, from the effect of which he laid insensible for more than two hours. That, however.did not deter him from further acts of outrage. His nativity is not known. He is said to be a man of fair education, but is regarded by all who know him as a designing, and dangerous man. Cooke married several years ago in the neighborhood of Harper's Ferry, but it is said that he left on Mon day afternoon with his family, but what direction he took could not be ascertained. THE CONSPIRACY THE LETTER TO THE SECRETARY OF WAR. The anonymous letter heretofore spoken of as having been received bv Gov. Floyd, the Secretary of War, reached him while at Old Point, lately. It stated that insurrections would occur simultaneously at Wheeling, Harper's Ferry and Washington, for the purpose of freeing slaves. It is understood that about 400 slaves have lately escaped from Virginia and Maryland under the agency of the emissaries. The people of tho adjacent country in Maryland and Virginia will be on the look ont for these runaways before reaching Pennsylvania. Gov. Wise, of Virginia, who in going up to the scene of riot, yesterday morning, had set on foot the measure (which it subsequently became unnecessary to carry out) for sending cavalry from this city to pursue and hunt the fleeing insurgents through any portion of Virginia, had also by telegraph requested the President of the United States to authorize the cavalry to follow them into any State or locality, they having stolen the property and treasure of the government, and placed its stolen arms in the hands of negroes and others. If they should get into Pennsylvania, it is to be presumed that the Governor of that patriotic Commonwealth would promptly afford all due assistance and au- -i . . - i- i 1 a l t. : i- -1 3 .

Governor Wise, of Virginia, after consulting with the President, came down to the Relay House in the early Washington train, accompanied by ninety Virginia volunteers. At the Relay House he was joined by Gen. George Steuart, and both proceeded together. Gov. Wise will remain at Harper's Ferry several days, and will, meanwhile, institute a most rigid investigation of the origin and all the facts connected with the insurrection. REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT AND SECRETARY OV WAR. Major Russell, of the U.

OTHER INCIDENTS. Captain Talbott, adjutant of the 6th regiment, has in his possession a navy revolving pistol, which belonged to J . D. Cook, one of the escap ed ringleaders, and a tsnarp s nne, with tne mi tials or J. C. Anderson thereon. The acting second sergeant of the company of Law Grays was seized with a fit at the moment the company was being engaged in the storming of the armory. He was taken from the line. tl. Li. U'Donneii, the baggage master or trie military train, exhibited a musket ball through the top of his hat, cutting some of the hair of his head away. in tne midst or tne ngnting artists were seen pausing in tl" ay, and sketching the scene as its points presented themselves before them. Among these soldier-artists was Mr. John W. Torsch. of the Law Grays. Captain W. D. Brown, attached to the Law Grays, was detailed to guard a wounded insurgent to the quarters, and protect him from the violence of the citizens. While so employed he asked him to confess how long the plot had been going on, who were its autnors, and wnere their meetings were held, but the dying man refused. Captain Brown took from the man's pocket a note-book or cypher s and secret cnaracters, and has it now in his possession. The cyphers are interspersed with a few English words and names of places, among them the following: "Springdale, Cedar co .'Illinois;" "Iowa," "St. Paul, Minnesota." and the sentence, "I once more sit down to write to vou." A number of the military and others returned to the city yesterday bringing with them as tro- pnies or tne ngnt, eiegant arms taken irom tne rioters, and a peculiar kind of spear found in the hands or many or the negroes. Movements in Baltimore. NO MORE TROOPS. - Earlv vesterdav morning, in view of the state of affairs at Harper's Ferry, and the ability of the troora already at the scene to put down the riot ers. General George H. Steuart countermanded the order for fresh troops, At 7 o'clock a detachment or tne ijarayette Guards, under Capt. Ferrandini, and the reserve guard ot the Liaw cireys, marched te tne uamden station, as per orders, "to be conveyed to Harper's Ferry, uen. steuart was present, and returned the companies to their armories. The Baltimore and Turner Rifles and a detach ment of the Shields Guards also marched to the depot, expecting to be conveyed to the place, but were also returned The Turner Rifles marched back with drums beating. The companies of artillery were also returned. The three companies or united states troops from Old Point Comfort have arrived here, and are quartered at Fort MeHenry, awaiting the or ders of the Secretary of War. ORDERS FOR MOUNTED TR0OPS SUBSEQUENT COUK- : TERMANDING. At 9 o'clock A. M., General Steuart, through Gov Wise, aetins- under instructions from the : President of the United States, communicated an order to General J. Wesley Watkins, calling upon him to prepare, equip and mount immediately a body of men for service in the moun tains and lastnesses near Harper's ferry, wnitner many of the insurgents had fled. The order was promptly carried out, and by 2 o'clock a company OI UU mounted dragoons were uiusiereu oil vjaiu-den street, at the hall of the station . . ; The corps was composed of the Taylor Light Dragoons, and the Lafayette Light Dragoons, Col Zimmerman and Lt.

All day vesterdav.. from dawn until dark, the depot of the Camden Station was thronged by anxious citizens inquiring after the latest intelli -vewpc. The passengers on every wain tnai arnv -ed, whether irom vv asningwm or ireumcn, were eagerly- questioned, and the least morsel of information concerning the absorbing event seemed to satisfy. When it was announced that the extra train containing the gallant Baltimore military would arrive, the throngs about the depot Increased until several thousand men, women and children were crowded into the depot. At 4 o'clock the reserve guard of the taw Grays, under the command of Sergeant Connolly, headed by Capt. Leidy's band, marched to the depot to receive their returning brother soldiers and escort them to their armories. Theetachment, on reaching the depot and gnd-ing the 4.SQ Westem - "I , - .

At five o'clock the whistle of the extra military train signaled her coming, and ill a moment there was a rush of the excited throng-, and the train was saluted at the entrance of the depot by cheering and waving of hats from the sidewalk, and the handkerchiefs of the ladies from the windows of the dwellings in sight. The train passed Into the depot,when the companies were disembarked, and formed in line on the platform, headed by martial music. The soldiers looked dusty and haggard, and bore good evidence of having undergone great fatigue. They got under way in a few minutes, and moved up Howard street and down Baltimore street, the band playing lively airs. Thousands of persons thronged the pavements, and every face wore an expression of welcome and gladness. As they reached the vicinity of their armories the companies filed off, and soon all were welcomed safe to their homes and firesides once more. Population of the Disturbed District. The district of country intended to be effected by the outbreak contains a large slave population. The following was the relative population at the last census: Whites. 16.438 li.016 9,815 - 13.031 50,950 37,074 28.754 Slaves. 5.6U 4,341 1.9)8 2,294 14,332 3,913 2,90 Loudoun county, Va., jenerson ' Berkeley ' Frederick " (C Frederick county, Md.

FEARFUL RETRIBUTION. Harper's Ferrr, Oct. 18. The ringleaders of the insurgents have met a fearful retribution. Out of the 23 of whom their party originally consisted, fifteen are now dead and three mortally wounded. Two unhurt, but made prisoners, and three have gone off with a large body of slaves towards the Pennsylvania line. TThey were this morning early seen on the Maryland shore, and the military are in pursuit. Another rioter, named Lewis Leary, has died. Before breathing his last he confessed the particulars of the plot. He said it was concocted by Brown at the fair held in Ohio two months ago. ' The town is full of military, and arrived men are continually arriving from every part of the surrounding country. Special Dispatch tohe Baltimore Sail. The Government Money Safe. Harper's Ferry, Oct 18. 10 P. M. The rumor that a large amount of U. S. government money had been stolen by the insurgents is untrue. It is all safe. . Dr. Murphy, the paymaster, has in his possession between S200 and S300 of the money of old John Brown, of Kansas notoriety, who is among the wounded. - The Fugitive Slaves from Harper's Ferry No Tidings of Them. Hagerstown, Oct. 18. Our town is quiet and we have no tidings of any fugitives in this di rection. Frederick, Oct. 18. The military from this place have all returned from Harper's Ferry. The town is still excited in regard to the insurrection. Nothing has been seen or heard of fugitive negroes in this direction yet. But some are suppos ed to be in the mountains or on the way to Pennsylvania, through the range of mountains near Hagerstown. The town is all quiet to-night. The Last Accounts from Harper's Ferry. Harper's Ferry, Oct. Its 11) o'clock P.M. Gov. Wise is here, having arriven at noon. District Attorney Ould is also 1 ere, to institute proper legal proceedings at instructions of the government. Capt. Brown is still living, and his wounds are rot considered so serious as first sup-peraed. The determination of the government in reference to the prisoners will probably be known in the morning. All is quiet here to-night. The U. S. marines are guarding the village. Virginia Military for Harper's Ferry. Washington, Oct. 18. Six companies Vir ginia military, numbering three hundred rank and file, arrived here this evening from Richmond, on their way to Harper's Ferry; but as the order calling them out had been countermanded they returned again this evening.

The President and Secretary of War were together for several hours to-day deliberating on matters connected with the proceedings at Harper's Ferry, the result of which conference was the sending of the United States District Attorney Ould thither to superintend the legal proceedings in the premises. The excitement which existed last night in Washington and neighborhood has subsided. It is said that the affair at narper-s t erry is tne first case of the kind which has occurred in this country involving at the same time both State and Federal jurisdiction. While the State is effected as to slavery and locality, the general government is interested with regard to puunc property, ik uaviu cAtiuei , control over the arsenal grounds, independently of the State; also with regard to the mails. Al-TtMdv in rfistintrriished nuarters the Question of jurisdiction is discussed, as Governor Wise will, it is said, claim tne prisoners now neid oy tne u . S. troops, to be dealt with according to the laws of Virginia. In this case the question of jurisdiction will have to be determined by the judiciary. Later from Buenos Ayres. New York. Oct. 18.

Mr. Henderson, the British charge at Paraguay, had demanded his passports in consequence of the Camstad affair not having been satisfactorily settled. General Convention of the Episcopal Church Richmond, Oct. 18. A long report from the committee on canons and the general theological seminary was presented. The house refused to entertain a resolution fixing a day for an adjourn ment. A resolution was adopted, appointing a committee to inquire into the expediency of effecting a severance between the General Convention and the General Theological Seminary. The order of the day relating to religious toleration in Cuba gave rise to a long and able de bate. The resolution was recommitted. The House of Bishops have nominated Rev. Jacob L.

Thompson, the secretary of Mayor Swann, it then transpired that, in consequence of the latter gentleman having been taken sick on Saturday last, and having been unable only to inform the acting mayor of the specific appointment of twelve o'clock, there had been some hearing of witnesses in the usual course of procedure, at an earlier hour in the morning, on the part of officer Edwards, as well as Sergeant Bartholow, who was charged with neglect of duty on election day at the same poll, and no parties or witnesses appearing to sustain the charges against them, they had been ordered to be reinstated In the positions from which they had been temporarily suspended. The acting mayor, howetfet on the appearanceand application of Mr. Thomas, on due explanation, readily assented to give bin and his witnesses a hearing then or at a subsequent time. But, on reflection, Mr. Thomas preferred, in view of all the circumstances and the fact that he had first opened his case with Mayer Swann himself, that the investigation should be deferred until that gentleman was sufficiently restored to give it his personal attention. This was assented to, and with the undevstanding that he would be notified by the Mayor when able to take up the case, Mr. Thomas and his witnesses left the office. The Harper's Ferry Insurrection.
