REPORTED FOR THE PENNY PRESS.
THE HARPER'S FERRY RIOT!
Brown Avows His Object.
DOES NOT REPENT THE DEATH
OF HIS SONS!
OF HIS SONS! PURSUIT OF COOK!
A Portion of His Equipage Captured.
HOW THE AFFAIR IS REGARDED AT
BALTIMORE, October 19.
Several slaves were found In the room with
the insurrectionists, but it is not Ulleved they
were there willingly; indeed, Brown's expecta
tlonsjas to the slarea rushing to him were en
tirely disappointed. None seemed to come to
him willingly, and In most casea were forced
to desert their muter. . But one Initanee In
whloh -the slaves made a public 'pearanoe
with arms In their hands Is relate''.
A negro who bad been sharply used by one
of the town-people, when be found that he had
a pike in bis hand, used his brfef authority to
arrest the citisen and have him ''taken to the
Armory. - ' i '- '
The cltlssni imprisoned by the lasnrreotlon
ista all testify to their lenient treatment; they
were neither tied nor Insulted, and beyond the
outrage of restricting their liberty, were not
ill-used. Captain Brown was always courteous
to them, and at all times assured them that
they should not be injured. He explained bis
purpose to them, and, while he had the work
men la confinement, made a,n abolition speech
to them. i ' , i
During the previous' night he spoke freely
to Col. Washington, and referred to his sons.
He said he had lost one in Kansas, and two
here. He had not pressed them to join him
iu the expedition, but did not regret thoir
loss they had died In a glorious cause.
' The position of Jie prisoners in the engine
house (luring the firing on Monday, and at
the moment of the finai attack, was a very
trying one. ' Witliout any of the incentives
of combat, they had to riek tbe balls of their
friends, but happily they all escaped. -
During Tuesday morning, one of Colonel
Washington's negroes came in and reported
that Captain' Cook .was in the mountains,
only three ' miles1 off.' Tho Indepeudont
Grays, of Baltimore, immediately started on
a scouting expedition, and in two hours re
turned .with two wagons loaded with arms
and ammunition, found at Captain Brown's
house. , The arms consist of boxes filled with
Sharpc's rifles, pistols, &a,, boaring . the
stamp of the Massachusetts Manufacturing
Company, Chicopee, Mass.
There were, found a quantity of United
State ammunition, a large number of spears,
sharp iron, bowie-knives fixed upon poles, a
terrible looking weapon intended for the use
of the negroes, with spades, pick-axes, shov
els, and every thing that might be needed,
thus proving that the expedition was well
provided for, that ft large party of, men
were expected to be armed, and that abun
dant means had ,beon, provided to meet all
expenses.: How All these -.supplies yvurogot
up to tbls farm without attracting attention
is strange. ' ; .
They are supposed to have been brought
through Pennsvlvaniai The Grays pursued
Cook so fast thatthty secured part of bin arms,
but with his more perfect knowledge of looall
tlos he was enabled to evade them. On their
arrival at the Ferry with their spoils they were
greeted with hearty obeeri, The wagons were
driven into' the custody of the Government.
At everybody else helped i themselves, why
should not the Grays have a olaim to the spoils?
The insurrectionists did not attempt to rob the
Pay-master's department at the Armory.,,- - .
A large amount of money was there, but It
was not diet , irbed. A short time after Captain
Brown was brought out, he revived and talked
earnestly to those about him, defending his
course, and avowing he bad only dona what
was right. He replied to the questions put to
him substantially as follows:
"Are yon Captain Brown, of Kansas V
' "I am sometimes called so." -, ,
"Are yon Ossawattomie Brown?"
1 "I tried to do my duty there,". .
: "What was your present object ?" ..
" "To free the slaves from bondage.'' ..
. "Were any other persons but those with you
now connected with the movemsnt?" i
" "No." . .
"Did you expect aid from the North ?"
' "No. There was no one eonneotedwithth
movements but those who cam with me."
.. "Did you expeot to kill people in order to
osrry your point 7" , .,, '., .,
"I did hot wish to do so, but you forced us
'Various questions of this kind were put to
Captain Brown, whloh he answered clearly and
freely, and seemed anxious to vindicate him
self. He, urged 'that he bad the town at his
mercy, that he could have bamed it; and mur
dered the Inhabitants, but did not. . He bad
treated the prisoners with courtesy, and com
plained that he .was hunted down like a beast.
He spoke of the killing of hia son, which be
alleged was done while bearing a flag of truce,
and seemed anxious for. tbe . safety, of his
wounded son. His conversation bore the im
press of aoonviot ion, that whatever he has done
to free tbe slaves was right, and that the war
fare in whloh he was engaged entitled him to
be treated wltb all respect as a prisoner of war.
He seemed fully oonvinoed that he was badly
treated, and had a right to oomplain., , ..
Although thought a dying man on examina
tion, his wounds have proved to be not neces
sarily fatal. . He expressed a desire to live and
to be tried by his country. In his pockets
were nearly $300 in gold, and several import
ant papers found in bis possession were taken
in charge by Col. Leo, and on behalf of th
WASHINGTON, October 19.
. ; The President and Secretary of War were
together several hours yesterday on matters
connected with tbe proceedings at Harper's
Ferry,, Tba result ol which conference was
the eondiug of U, S. .District Attorney Ould
thither to superintend tha legal proceedings
in the promises. .... , , ,.
The excitement which last night oxisted at
Washington and vicinity-has subsided, and
the extraordinary forco relieved., It is Baid
that tbe affair at Harper's , Forry is tho first
case of the kind which has ever occurred in
the country, tnvolviug at the same time both
State and Federal jurisdiction.,. ..
While the State Is affected as to slavery
and locality, " the General . Government is
interested with regard to the public property,
it having exclusive control over the arsenal
grounds, . Independently ; of the State; also
with regard to the mails. Already, . iu dis
tinguished quarters, the question of jurisdic
tion is discussed, as Gov.,Wisewill, it is said,
claim the prisoners now beld by the United
States troop, to be dealt with according to
the laws of Virginia. , ,
- In this case, the, question of jurisdiction
will have to be determined by Judiciary.
Convention of Evangelical Christians.
CHICAGO, October 19.
The Convention of Western Evangelical
Christians opposed to tbe poliey of the A med
ian Tract Society and the subject of Slavery,
met la this olty yesterday. The attendance
was large, embracing delegates from Ohio, In
diana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa and Min
nesota. i The Convention permanently organised by
tbe election of Henry D. Kltcbell, of Michi
gan, as President, and a committee was ap
pointed to report business for action of th
A set of resolutions was reported that the
tract agenoy Is tbe most vital means for the
promotion of tbe cause of Christ; that the ef
forts to revive th African slave trade demand
renewed testimony from the Church against its
abomination; that Evangelical Christianity
oondemns slaveholding aa one of the highest
crimes against God and man; that In view of
the refusal of the American Traot Society of
New York to apply the Gospel to the sin of
slaveholding, the time has come for a reorgan
isation of tbe system of tract operations, with
the view to meet the present exlgenoiss of our
Addresses were made by members of ths
Boston and Cinoinnatl Societies. A strong
feeling In opposition to slavery and the action
of the American Tract Soolety on that subject
pervades the Assembly.
The Convention will probably remain la

A Church Brawl Thore has been a tre
mendous uproar raging in London for two or
three months, owing to riotous demonstrations
taking place every Sunday In a church, iu the
east end of the oily, known as "St. George's in
the East." Tho rector, It appears, Is a Puseyite,
of the most advanced type. who. besides dlvnn
innovations in costume, manner of conducting
the service, io., finally raisod the altar to the
standard Roman Oatholio sight, and lighted
wax candles upon it. The result was that the
congregation booted him every Sunday, and
the church wardens in vain protested againet
his doings. As a last resource, to end the
soandal, tbe Bishop of London has closed the
church for the present.

Algeria, recently made an extraordinary at
tempt to murder his wife. While she was

to his horse, and then made the animal gallop
off at a rapid rate, dragging the poor woman
after him. Her piercing dies soon attracted
some neighbors, and they released her; but
she was in a pitiable plight, her flesh hanging
in shreds from parts of her person, and that of
her arms being entirely stripped off. The hus

Actios or Sugar on tub Trrth M. Lares,
ofFranoe, in the course of his investigations
on tbe teeth, has arrived at the following con
clusions 1st, That reflnsd sugar, from either
eitne or beets, is injurious to healthy teeth,
either by immediate oontaot with these organs
or by the gas developed, owing to its stoppage
in the stomach, 2d, That if a tooth is mace
rated in a saturated solution of sugar, it is so
much altered in tbe chemical composition tbat
it becomes gelatinous, and its enamel opaque,
spongy, and easily broken; this modification U
due not to free acid, but to a tendency of augar
to eombin with the oaloareous basis of tbe
tooth. ' .
