Clfvelawo, O., Not. 29. Ia reply ' n arti'le l c'j appeared lu the 2orth Arnerican .'mew, John Brown. Jr., now of Pun-in-Bay, on Lake Eiie, son of Oiowato-mie Brown of anti-helium fam, or old John Brown, whope "soul goes marching on," fctB published a ft ur-column history of the troubles in Kansas in 1&S5. Ha shows tbat influenced by tha glowing ao-C'tiultf of the fertility, bealthfuluesa and beauty cf tbe territory of Kansas, in tba mouth of October twenty-nine years ago, five of tbe sons cf John Iirown John, Jr., Jason, Owen, Frederick and Salmon than resilient. of. tbe Sate of Ohio, made their arrangements to emigrate to tbat Territory and settled about eight mile went of O-iawatotnie. He chimes that at tha first Territorial elec-tioo, held on tba 30th of March in that year, the residents of Missouri along tha borders came into Kansas by thoti-an is find took forcible possession of the polls. T'-ey were well aruied, and although but 8ol leal eltcbitH iu the Territory -voted, f t ere were no lean than fi,3ti0 Totes puled. They t lectart all tha members with a single esc ptioij in either boue the two Free Soiiers being chosen from a remote district which the Misoutiana overlooked or did not caro to reach. Tne stave code w enacted ry the L-gli'latnfft thus frau latently cboaen, and tbe actual settlers at their convention repudia'ed the L gialature iiaHf. Biri'e being iueviiabie, John Brown came to Kansas with arms to tha assistance of bis sons, sec rnrtanied by another sou, Oliver, and a son-in-law, Henry Thompson. John Brown and all his eon except Jasou assisted in the . . DKFEKSK OF LAW8ENCB ajjaii'st the armed bauds from Missouri. During tbe iliMutbancea in tbe State in that year William Dow aud Thouiaa W. Barber, Free Soil men. were shot and killed, aud E. 1. Brown was murdered by the pm-alavery party February 2, 18oG. The only offense of these men was that they were Free Soiltra. A rifl company wan formed in Osawatomie February 27, 1856, and the whole family sigued tbe roll. John Brown, Jr., was elected captaiu. In tha meantime the pro-slavery party were announcing "war to the knife ami the kuito to tbe hut." Early in tha spring Colonel Butoid, cf Alabama, arrived with a regiment of armed men, mostly from South Carolina and Georgia. They came with the openly-declared purpose to make Kansas a slave State at all haztrds. John Browo, acting as a surveyor, ana Ins bona as axmeu and chain-bearers, stirveed into ti.eir camp nn I heard tha intention expressed to "whip, kill or shut up Abolitionists, aucu aa tbrm blanked Browns over there. ' In the spring, while planting corn, word was Irou.ht that Liiwrenei was burning, having been bet on tire by the Missouriaus. He- rallied his company and wurd was brought that all leauiug Free State man were prisoner, that the force which had taken Lawrence had divided and were engaged in the work of destruction and pil-lj;e in otner parts of the Territory, and ' that force of 4U0 men under Butord were In camp a few miles east ot us. Early next day word was brought into our camp from Potawatouiie that the Georgians, aided by tbe proV.avery reiideuta tbeio, were dividing out ihe irSPriOIFXTEX) FEKE STATK settlers ou the creak, that old Mr. Morse had lied in fear of his life, and that bis house had been- villaged. They niarcbt d lu that direction and liberated a couple of klavea who were atterwards returned against bis wishes. Soon after, by order or Culuiiel Sumner, f the United States army, who came, as he said, to disperse all armed gatherings of men on either side, we disbanded in gocd faith and returned to our homes. The ruen from Missouri and those uuder Butord made a si;ow of disbanding and at once reassembled, act ing as aids to the United Sta.es troops, who were ordered to act as a powse for tue Mar shal iu the arrest ot every Free State man who Lad beeu or was likely to be active.

War news and bad cropreporti have had their deV.rtd effect, and prices Lava telescoped upward la respousa to an almost unanimous buyine lemaud. In a letter Issued to-day Irwin, Orr & Co. etato the wave of strength started a few weeks ago has risen ao sharply that conservative men think tha crest has Dearly bean reached. It is considered early in the winter, however, for a sustained bull movement in prices. For ao lou a time prices remained so nearly on the same level aa to indue a very general belief that that level was the bottom, and tbe process of buying quietly for Investment at last reached a point where a very little shock was tufiicieiit to reveal the situation to othern. Tbe disturbance came iu the stupe of a thaw ia the coru fields of tne West and war notes from the Old World. Tha firet exposed the conditions of which tha commercial world should have already been aware, and tbe second contains no menace to the food movement except aa it carries with it the bare possibility, that the war flame will spread when once kindled; but that possibility will remain tor m.mtris aniens it should earlier become a fact, as hostilities are not likely to betiia in the winter and tbe belligerent-i would not wive notice ot intention to fight till their forces were nearly ready to move. "WKAKNJtSS IX VTHEA.T, Hence tha short side, even ia wheat, which Is tba weakest article on the list, cannot bo regarded safe. A stock of 9,000,000,000 bushels at the close of navigation, with larger quantities to come in from the Northwest, because it can be more easily handled here, ia a heavy weight, verbally. In reality it should, for very little of our crop is short ia tbe aggregate, and the surplus not wanted before spring must be held through the winter somewhere. If liere it can bo reached when wanted, and mean time furnish nrontable employment for c pital m carrying it tbrou h the winter. COUH A.WX OATS. The strength of tha situation lies iu corn, wbicli is zao.mii.vw ousneis snort, or 15 per oot., with the price 16 per cent. above the specie average of a lon seriea of years. There is more old corn ou hand this fall than last year, but not enough to make np tha deficiency. Tnere is very little corn north of tha south line of Iowa that will bear cribbing, and much of it will spoil lu tha absence of a demand for it. Corn ouht to be good prop erty, as It promises to be scarce next summer. Theahortage in corn should also make oats vaiuab.e in spite of abundant crops, aa they are now 12 per ceut below tue 34J4c, which is thi average of the last ten years, ft till, holders are free t-allera at present prices, aud are sluigish to follow tba auvance iu corn. Iba stocks of grain tra. groaing, shippers not takiug kindly to tbe advance in freights. Rye is in biz stock, l,20o,tHJ bushels, aud rela tively heavy, wlh little demand by home diau.lets or shippers. IKK PRODUCTS have developed unexpected strength. The winter packing is now nearly a quarter over and tba product lias thus far moved cut nearly as fast as made. Hogs from tna northern half of the coru belt do not show up so well in condition as expected by tbe bears. The plentiful supply of nog may causa a nttia set-back in pro visions, but there ia great confidence in the more remote deliveries, February being just now tha favorite mouth, both in park and lard. A "WAR ROMANCE. The Meeting of a! llusbaad and Wife After 1 wenty Years' tieparatloiL. Cixcinnati, O., Nov. 29. A strange and rem irkabla story comas from Coving ton, Ky. When Fort Sumter was fired upon a young farmer from Greenbrier county, W. Va., left his wife and little boy and came to Cincinnati to enlist in tba Northern army. At the battle of Chickmaaga he was taken pris oner and thrown in tbe pen at Acderaon- ville. Shortly after this news reached the voaog wife In Virginia tbat her hus band was dead. Within a month her hti-e was burned over her head by Con federate soldiers. Having an uncle in Cincinnati, tin young wife, with her chil 1, came here, but the uncle had moved West somewhere, and penniless, abe sought employment. After a few years she west to Covington and there permanently resided. Her little boy she placed in the orphan asylum. Ha was adopted by a wealthy old couple in Dayton, Ohio, and she lost all trace of him. lis was raised in luxury and educated, but at his ma- j jori y was left peuniless, his benefaotora ' tubing all they had in the world. Then he drifted West. The report of the husband's death was erroneous. He was finally released from Anderson ville and sent North. He went to his home iu Virginia to find it swept away and hi family gone, ha knew ot where. He, after a long and fruitless search for them, drifted to Virginia City, Nov., during tha mining excitement, and, staking a claim, in a few months was accounted wealthy. He went to San Francisco and with others opened a banking house. One day a young man entered in reply to an advertisement for a book keeper. A resemblance between himself and the senior proprietor w as noticed, questions were asked, and from the replies given it became apparent that it was tba sou of the banker who was seeking employment. The young man said ha never knew what became of his mother. He was made a partner in the bank. Afterward a man narnad Warren, who bad left West Virginia in company with tba banker to eulis. in tha army, dropped into the bank to get a check cashed, lie recognized his old army friend, aud after a short talk asked him if ha did not know whera his wife was living. Tha banker became agitated and said ha had supposed her to be dead for many years. "Where is she living?" he excitemy assta. "in uovmgton, Ky.," was the answer. A te'egram was at once sent and a reply received from the war-widow of twenty-one year. Then the bauker went to Covmgton, aud there was a jt yous meeting. The poor wife was compelled to atrug.-le hard for a living all these years. The eon aeoompauiad his lather to Covington, and tba three have now gone up tha river on tha steamer Fleetwood to visit come old friends. The name of the banker is withheld at his own request.

GREAT BRITAIN PREPARING lO ADOPT PEOTECTION. The Ruinous Effect of Free Trade Upon Her Manufactures The New Movement Rapidly-Gaining Strength. Special Correspondence of Commercial Gazette. BiuMrNCHAM, Nov. 14. Whilst some of our fellow-citizens are striving to induce tha United States to adopt the principles of tha Cobden Club, the agitation for a return to some sort of protection in England is becoming more widespread and more vigorous. After forty years' trial of tree trade Ed gland finds herself still its only advocate amongst the nations. Those who have tried it, like Germany, have re jected it, and England now finds herself with reduced prosperity, the one among the sisterhood of commercial nations whose foreign trade has increased the least, the only one among them whose ratio of ex ports has actually decreased. THE COBDEN CLUB'S METHODS. These are lacts which are not searched for by the Cobden Club. That organization quotes only such figures as show pros perity, and then jumps to the conclusion tbat this prosperity is a result of free trade. Yet it does not feel as secure as once it did. It is tbe custom of members of tbat club to speak pityingly of the ignorance of the American nation, and to say that it will ba an evil day for England wbeu tha United States, by abolishing duties, so reuuee wages in America as to enable American manufacturers to compete in tha wend a market with British manufacturers. Can any one avoid admiring these gen tlemen, w ho, believing that the adoption of free traoe by tha United States will bring ruin upon themselves, yet nobly exert themselves to the utmost to induce the United States to do so; and send yearly missionaries aud tracts in great numbers to our shores? 1 venture to make a prediction here, and that is unless America or France should greatly reduce their tariff, or adopt frea trade within five years, England will be compelled by popular opinion to return to soma sys'.eui of protection. - In the manu aeturing districts I believe that to-day, if protection disguised by a sugar-coating of some sort, or by another came, such aa fair trade-r-were to be made tha subject of a popular ballot, it would have 3k (ood majority. PROTECTION IK ENQIiAND. The Conservative party is beginning to see its opportunity in this. Tha Radicals are wholly committed to free trade principles and canuot, if they would, oppose them now. The Conservativee.on the other hand, adopted them only under a sort of compulsion. Disraeli was the last English statesman to defend protection In the old days, but his disciples are now rallying around the old cry once mora. So shrewd : r politician as Mr. Lowther recently pub- 1 ltciy disclaimed ever having been a noe trader. Lord Dunraven, a rising statesman, has approved of the tair trade idea, and even Lord Salisbury has admitted that there may be something in it. An argumetit generally advaDced by the frea traoers here is the alleged decrease in the number of paupers. The fair traders ; deny tbat this decrease is real, asserting that it is but tbe result of an arrangerneut ot figures. As Americans we know that : it should be real, tor a country whose sur- plus population is leaving it at the rate of nearly a hundred thousand a year should be very fast going down hill if its propor- tion of paupers increases. It is hardly necessary to say that when England bad protection her emigrants were not a tenth part as many as they now are. However, my object in writing thus Is only to introduce the fact that an active campaiu against Iree trade has bean at last began in this country. The London Horning Post has apparently adopted tne protection idea, and many other conservative journals give it a timid support. Tne Times baa recently given up many columns to correspondency on the question, and meetings have been held in various centres. Mr. Robert . Porter, so well known in America as a statistician and for his graphic tetters on European labor, has now carried tna war into Airlta, as it were, and last Saturday he delivered au addreaa before a Fair Trade meeting in Leamington, near Birmingham. AS IMPORTANT MEETING-. This meeting was an important one. It was presided over by Lord Dunraven. Lord Yarmouth, three members of Parliament and a number of other dignitaries, both church and lay, were present, whilst sympathizing letters were read from num bers of others who were unablo to be pres ent, including tour members of Parlia ment. From Lord Danraven's address I shall only make two extracts, which struck me aa pertinent. uo sad: "1 regard free trade as au impossibility. We could not induce other countries to adopt it, nor could we carry the principle out ia its en tirety ourselves. So long as we raised something like nineteen or twenty million of pounds pLr annum, how could wa be irea traders? Frea traders said: 'Look at ' tha advance England has mada under frea 1 trade. ho tlouoi she advanced by leans aud.bounds, but other nations had done the same under the protectira system, and some of them had made uuderthat system great er leaps and bounds than Lglaud had done." The other extract is this: "The only place where free trade was actually carried out was in the United States where they have free trade amongst themselves and protection against all tha rest of the world." Mr. Stavtlay Hill, M. P., has been three times to America and has failed to discover any tendency there to adopt free trade. Ha said: "la Canada a high protective tariff has beeu adopted; previously Canada was beggared; she was tbe slaughter market of tha United States. Not Canada ia one of the most nourishing countries in the world. Before protection men were walking about tha atreets of Montreal having nothing to do; now every man has plenty of work, la const quence of protection Canada has become a rich country with a good trade. I shall not quote much of Mr. Porter's address becaie its substance ia familiar to your readtrs. It was a history of tha prosperity ot the United States, of tha Morrii Tariflbill, and of tha work of Che Tariff Commiisiou, of which Mr. Porter was a member. He spoke also, however, of his recent ttudies in tha industrial centres of KngUnd, France, Belgium and Germany. Ha h-w found the American workingmaa to b paid much better than tha Eugiisu workiuman, and to have but slightly greater Xoenes. In Germany aud France, both protected countries, the working peopl live very much cheaper than ia fra trade England. Ha told what he had heard and seen of the depressed condition of almost every branch of trade in Engnd, and from all these ha drew tha coueiaioa mat Mr. Cobdeu'a dreams bad not- lj fulfilled, as his prophe iea had proved fH;aeions. ENGLISH ST7FFKKIS03 FROMKKB TRADK. Mr. Mclver, M. P., spoka with regret and apprehension of the genel want of fcinpioyuueut now existing among the arti san aud working cla.-3i3, wtucv he at tributed in a great degree to the etpjmous quantities of manufactured goods, many of them the staples of British trade, wtiica are now imported daty free, m displaoQ tha home industrials. Mr. Hawkea. Coroner of Birmingham. mada some remarks which I chouid like u y commend to t-U attention of that corres pondent of the Pittsburgh Linpatch whtt wroMs of tha superiority of Birmingham workiB2TOna homes. i v Mr. Hawkes said: 'If Mr. Porter wi uid visit Birmingham he would find that the- condition of the artisan population wasasdtfplorable. in the vast majority of ca-ea, as that wbicb he had correctly described the nailers of crcesterahire to be in..

In February, 1877, Louis - C, Loudenski, with a party of men, was crossing the mountains in lioumania, and had a large sum of money with him. A band of rob bers attacked the party and cut their throats. Loudenski was the fourth man whosa throat was cut; but his windpipe and oesophagus alone were severed, while the jugular vein was unharmed. As be showed signs of life the robbers placed a rope arouud his neck and hanged him to a. tree. Ordinarily this would have produced death in a short time; but owing to tbe severed windpipe Loudenski still breathed through the aperture, and the rope did not strangle him. After hanging iorty-eight hours he was discovered and cut down. Me was removed to Vienna. where Professor Schraeder succeeded in ef- feetine what is afmO-it a care. From Vienna ti has travelled about the world, being exhibited at different medical colleges. Loudenski is twenty-eiht years old, about five feet tall has a 8-tliow com plexion, and weighs-!? pound. His wei4ht before he received tha injury was 172 pounds. In his throat, half an inch below tha Adam's apple, is an orifice prov ing tbe truth ot'hts ecory. In this is tube which he closes'when he wants to speak, but otherwL-ie he inhales air chiefly througn tne note in his throat. , THS WO-SDJEuRFtrL 'WOUNIX Dr. S. H. Warrenlwho examined the man carefully, describes his wound as fol lows: "An Incision was made across the throat from tha inner side of both jagular veins, which extends tthe carotid artery, severing the trachea or bronchial tubes. Through the orifice can be eeen the vocal chords, larynx and diverging tubas. Lou denski, at his pleasure, can show tha action of t lotus m respiration something never before beheld by (surgeons iu a living sub- Isct." Ha breathes througa a tuoe -throe- eighths of an inch in diameter, which curves downward. He lives mainly on liquid food, btdn$ unable to digest gross food.
