Dr. J. L. Vattler—Cincinnati Postmaster
—Turnouts—Restoration.
Our worthy Chief Engineer of the General
(iovernmoat, J. B., sots a precedent for lay
ing street railroad tracks. His plan, as to
Postmasters, Is to arrange the track so as first
to turn out, and then to turn in an inoura
bent. Bdck fully understands the circuit and
circumlocution. Isi Cook, P. M. at Chi
cago, went out R. H. entrance; came in on
the Lett. Dr. Vattisr, P. M., went out,
starhoard-the-helm, and comes in helm-a-port.
Thomas Sfaraow, Ex-P. M. at Colum
bus, was shot by Buohakam's arrow, but it
was but a love-bolt, as he, perhaps, in a few
days will be hopping into the pigeon-boxes
opposite the State-house, and Miixkb and his
men be going cut.
We, hsriog oonfidtnoe in the restorative
qualities of the President, took an extreme
ease and yesterday hinted, more as a sog
gester than otherwise, that the son-in-law of
Ex-President General Harbison had been
honored and preferred for the appointment,
as we had oeoasion to know of the readiness
and willingness of the President to distinguish
Mr. Taylor with a plaoe. Dr. Vattirr hag
been officially announced as the appointee, will
soon have his $100,000 security bond Med, and
by the 1st of November be the public's humble
and servioable servant, as he has heretofore
been.
A Full Circult, or Turnouts.
Tho City Council has established routes by
circuits for street railroads in this city, and
has defined a uniform width of traclis. Route
No. 2, up Walnut and out Ninth-alt eet, has
a circuit laid down, but can not be completed,
us the square on Fonrth-stroet, between Vino
nud Walnut-streets, designed to be mutually
used by two companies, is over an inch wider
than the ordinance regulation, and too wide
tor the cars of the Cincinnati Street Railroad
Company. If it be the true policy of this
oily to confine the travel to circuits, the track
must be uniform. But a spirited demand is
being made for turnouts every twelve hun
dred loot all along all the lines; so that a
person can, on any street, go up or down, as
desired, and not go a square across or a mile
around to go home or on a visit.
The Patriot's Indignant Frown.
It is woll known to many that thoro is a
Harper's Ferry, on the Maryland sido, on
tbo stupendous rocks that there overhang tho
Potomac, a wonderful likeness of Washing
ton, who owned large properly near by, and
whose relative was one of tho prisoners of thu
lusurgent Ottawatomies, who bristled for a
lew hours like a fiery comet, at this point
where the gonius of the place should have
awed violence into peace. It is said of this
fancied resemblance to the Father of his
Country, that the nose, chin and lips are ad
mirably formed, bearing the resemblance ot
studied art; that the forehead, usually, is ob
scure, but since the rocoat domoniacal out
rage, in its presence, deep lines of disappro
batory frowns roughen tho usual mildness
if features which the original possessed so
pre-eminently as to inspire all men with a
profound reverence towards hij august pcr
aoiiftge. Horo, where Jkkpkrmon so graphically de
scribed them, stand the " monuments of a
war between rivers and mountains, which
must have shaken the earth to its contor,"
was loo sacred a place to Blain with associa
tions of treason to a sovereign Slato, or rebel
lion to the cause of the Union. The foeble
effort of puny men, however, was spent at
the fool of these rocky barriers. No wonder
that the guardian spirit keeping vigil on tho
blue Kidge frewned at the bold fanaticism
of Brown, the participators or abettors.
The Worthington Grammar School of
Kenyon College.
A new arrangement having boon dotor
mined upon by the Trustees of Kenyon Col
lege, a Protestant Episcopal institution, Itov.
Pktkr B. Kuth, many years since a graduate
thereof, has accepted tho position of Princi
pal of a Diocesan School for boys, at Wor
thington, Ohio. This is an cnlerpriso that
appeals to historical associations, for many
persons will reniembor with interest that it
was at that place that Bishop Cuack first
commenced in Ohio his labors in providing
instruction for the youth of the West. Whilo
the College classes and Mil nor Hall pupils
will still be engaged at Oambier, it has beon
determined to accept of many proffered fa
cilities at Worthington, nine miles from Co
lumbus, of building, revenues, accessible
and pleasant locality, staid and substantial
society, Ac, and provide an additional prepar
atory school, frem which lads may be trans
ferred to the Hill at Gambier. Knowing the
Reverend gentleman to whom has been com
mitted the proposed school, in our own
school-boy days, and latterly since his worth
and ability has beon exemplified by experi
ence, we look forward with confidence to
the success of the enterprise.
This locality is emphatically a sohool locality.
The settlers on this township tract in 1803
were limited to forty. Each of whom were
unanimously chosen by ballot, a single ballot
being suflkiont to prevent an election. The
first eabin built was for a school-house and
church of the Protejtant Episcopal donomina
tion; the first Sabbath after the arrival of the
third family, divine worship was held therein,
and on the arrival of the eleventh family, a
school was commenced. The devotion of the
people to religion and education still continues
and the society thereabout is the proper kind
by whioh youth should be surrounded. The
patriotism of the people was evinced at an
early day. The 4th of July, fifty-six yean
zo. was appropriately celebrated. Seventeen
gigantic trees emblematical of the then sev
enteen States forming the Federal Union, were
cut so that a few blows of the ax at sunrise on
the Fourth, prostrated each successively with
a tremendous crash, forming a national salute
peculiarly W astern and novel in the world's
history.

Heavy Breach of Trust—A Dishonest

One of the heaviest cases of breach of truBt
whioh we have had to record for some time,
occurred yesterday, on Pearl-street. It ap
pears that Henry Laner & Bro., who keep a

man named Willieh, a porter, and since then
his exemplary conduot won for him their en

have long continued to his pecuniary profit
but for the circumstances we are about to re
late. At two o'clock yesterday afternoon, having
a note to pay at the Valley Bank, tho firm
gave Willieh a check on C.L. Adae &; Co., for
ine amount 01 fci.tiss a, ana requested him
to draw the money and take up the note. A
part of their instruction ho oboyed to the
vary letter, for he drew the money ; but thon
instead ot talcing up trio note be took his de
parture. After waiting a considerable length of time
for the return of their employeo, they concluded
all was not right, and upon visiting the bank
found their worst fears had truly portrayed the

they, impelled by the promise of a reward of a

Examination of the Insurrectionists
CHARLESTOWN, VA., October 25.
The examination of the Harper's Ferry
prisoners will be commoneed to-day. The law
requires' that the decision of the Justioes of tho
Examining Court, who may numbor from firo
to sixteen, must be unanimous. The prisoners
will be examiued together, and it is supposed
that the examination trial will be concluded by
two o'clock, to whioh timo the Hrand Jury has
, beon adjourned by the Court. TheGrand Jury
will thon take np the case immediately, and
the indictments, which are already prepared,
will probably be presented to the Court on
Wednesday morning, when the trial of the
prisoners will oommenoe before the Court and
jury. Should they be found guilty, and sen
tence of death be pronounced upon them, the
Judge, undor the laws of this State, fixes the
day of exeoution, independent of the Governor.
The usual delay of thirty days after sentence
is excepted in cases of insurrection and rebel
lion, and the prisoners, if convicted of the
same, may be hung immediately, within or
without the jail-yard.
A fellow named James Lynoh aliat Wm. J.
Stoburgh, supposed to be onoof the fillibuaters,
was brought in a prisoner to-day and lodged
in jail. He was eaptured some days ago by M.
E. Price, Mail Agent on the B. it. 0. R. R., at
a place called Sir John's Run, and kept in a
room till to-day. He is quite nnderslied, of a
simple and foolish appearance, and bad been
several weeks loitering about this and the ad
jolningcounties, begging and borrowing money.
His commitment on suspicion of aiding and
abetting John Brown & Co. was issued by Jus
tice Eichelberger.
CHARLESTOWN, October 25—P. M.
The preliminary examination of the prison
ers commenced this morning before the Magis
trates Court. The following Magistrates ooou
piod the bench: Col. Davenport, Presiding Jus
tioe, assisted by Dr. Alexander, Justioe J.
Lock, John F. Smith, Thos. H. Willis, Geo. W.
Eioholberger, Chas. H. Lewis and Mosos W.
Burr.
At half-past ten o'elook tho Sheriff was di
rooted to bring in the prisonors, who were con
ducted from tho jail undor a guard of eighty
armed men, A guard was also stationed
around tho Court-house, and bayonets aro
bristling on all sides. ,
Charles B. Harding, Attorney for tho County,
is assisted by Andrew Hunter, Counsel for the
Commonwealth.
The prisoners were brought in, Gen. Brown
and E. Coppic being manacled together, frown
seemed weak and haggard, with his eyes swollen
from the effects of the wounds on bis head.
Coppic is uninjured. Stevens seemed lass In
jured than Brown, but looked haggard and
deprcssod. There are a number of wounds on
the heads of both. John Copland is a bright
mulatto, about twenty-five years of age. dreen
is a dark negro, about thirty years of age.
Sheriff Campbell thon read the committment.
The prisoners are charged with treason and
murder. Harding, States A ttorney, asked that
the Court might assign counsel for the prison
ers if they bad none.
The Court Inquired if tho prisoners had
oonnsci, when Brown addressed tho Court as
follows:
"I did not ask for any quarter at the time
I was taken; I did not ask to havo my life
spared. Tho Governor of the State of Vir
ginia tendorcd mo his assurance that I should
have a fair trial, and undor no circumstances
whatever will I be ablo to attend to a trial.
If you seek my blood you can havo It at any
moment, without tho mockery of a trial; I
have had no counsel; I have not beon able to
advise with one; I know nothing about the
feelings of my fellow-prisoners, and I am ut
terly unablo to attend in any way to my own
defense. My memory don't serve me; my
health is insufficient, although improving.
Thceoaremitigating circumstancosjif a fair trial
is to be allowed ua, that I would urgo in our
favor; but if we are to be forced with a inero
form of a trial to execution, you might spare
yourselves that trouble; I am ready for my
late: J. don task a trial: I beg lor no mookory
of a trial, no insult, nothing but that which
conscience gives or cowardice would drive you
to practice. I ask to be excused from tho
mockery of a trial. I do not know what tho
design of this examination is; I do not know
what is to be the benefit of it to the Common
wealth; I havo now little to ask, other than
that I be not foolishly insulted at cowardly
barbarians insult those who fall into their
power.
Tho Court assigned Charles J. Faulkner and
Laweon Botts as counsel for the prisoners.
After consulting the prisonors, Mr. Faulkner
addressed the Court, lie stated that he denied
the right of this Court to assign counsel for tho
prisoners, and that he could not under any olr
ou instances enter upon the defense of the
prisoners on such short notice, as it would
indeed be a mockery of justice.
Mr. Botts said tbat he did not feel it his
duty to decline tho appointment of the Court.
Mr. Harding addressed Brown, and asked
him if he was willing to aocopt Messrs. Faulk
ner and Botts at counsel?
Brown replied, "I wish to say that I have
sent lor counsol; I did apply, through tho
advice of some persons here, to some persons
whose names I do not recollect, to act as
counsel for me, and I have sent for other
counsel, who have bad no possible opportunity
to soe me. 1 wisn tor counsel it 1 am to nave
a trial, but if I am to have nothing but the
mockery of a trial, as I said before, I do not
care anything about counsel; it is unneeeosary
to trouble any gentleman with that duty."
Harding "You aro to have a fair trial."
Brown Thero wero certain men, I think
Mr. Botts was one of thorn, who declined
aoting as counsel, but I am not positiveabout
it. I can not remember whether he was one
or not, because I have hoard so many names.
i am a straugcr here; i do not know the dis
positions or character of tho gontlomen
named. I have applied for counsol of my
own, and doubtless could have them, if I am
not, os I said before, to bo hurried to exeou
tion before they can reach hore; but if that
is tho disposition that is to be made of mo,
all this trouble and cxponso can be saved.
Hording The question is, do you desire
the aid of Messrs. Faulkner and Botts as your
counBol? Plcaso to answer yes or no.
Brown I can not regard this as nn exam
ination under any circumstances. I would
prefer that they should exercise their own
pleasure. 1 foci as if it was a matter of very
littlo account to mo; if they had designed to
assist as my counsel, I should hnvo wanted
an opportunity to consult them at my leisure.
Harding Slevcus, aro you willing thoso
gcntlomcn should act ns your counsel?
Stevens I am willing that gentleman
all, (pointing to Mr. Botts.)
Harding Do you object to Faulkner?
Slovens No, I am willinc to tuke both.
Harding thon addrossed each of the other
prisoners separately, and each statod Lis wil
lingness to be defended by the counsel named
by the Court.
The Court issuod peremptory orders that the
press should not publish tbo detailed testimony,
as it would render the getting of a jury before
the Circuit Court impossible.
Lewis Washington states that about one
o'clock on Sunday nietat, he was osloon, and
awoko by a noise, heard his name called, went
uown ana was surroundd by six men. Stevens
appeared in command. Cook,Coppoo and two
negro prisoners wero along, and another who
no anerwaru recognized as Jtagio. Washington
then proeeodod to detail all the nartio
ulars of his being taken as a prisoner with his
negroes to the armory, and subsequent events
up to tho attack by the marines and delivery.
A. M. Kittmiller gavo tho particulars of his
being taken prisoner and locked ud: sub
sequently had several interviews with Brown.
wao always treated him with u great deal
respect ana courtosy. ndeavorea to ascertain
from Brown what object he had in view, and
ho ropo&todly told him his only object was
fceo slaves, and that he was willing to fight
pro-slavery Men to accomplish tbat object.
Ua one occasion during the attack, I said
Brown, "This is getting hot work, and if you
allow mo to interfero, I oan possibly accommodate
matters." He wont out with Slovens,
with a flair of truco. On Monday afternoon.
he requostod titovene to remain, while he went
forward, when Stevens was fired on and fell.
Recognized only Brown and Stevens, but
counted twenty-two men early in the morning
around with Sharp's rises. When Stevens
was lying bounded be remarked to me "I have
been cruolly deceived."
Washington reoalled Said that in a conver
sation with Governor Wise, Brown was told
he need not answer questions unless he chose;
that Brown replied, he had nothing to eonoeal,
no favors to ask, that he bad arms enough for
two thousand mon and could get enough for
fire thousand if wanted.
Armstead Ball declared to his being arrested
by the Insurgents. Had an interview after his
arrest with Brown, who stated be had come for
no child's play and was prepared to carry out
his designs; tbat his object was not to make
war against the people, and they would not be
Injured if they remained quiet. His object
was to plaoe United States arms in the hands
of black men, and proposed to lree all the
slaves in the vicinity. Brown repeatedly said
his whole object was to release the slaves; I
asked him if some plan could not be arranged
for the liberation of myself and other prisonors?
He said we could only be released by furnish
ing able bodied slaves in the plaoe of each of
as; 1 recognise Stevens, Green and Brown.
Captain Brown told the prisoners, when the
charge of the marines was about being mads,
that though he did not intend to injure them
himself, that they should equally occupy the
post of danger with him; that if they were not
dear enough to their fellow-citizen j to accept the
terms he had proposed to seoure their safety,
they mast be the worst of barbarians. Coppeo,
on the other hand told himself and friends to
get behind the engines, tbat he did not wish to
soe any of them Injured. Heard one of the in
surgents (Beckham) say "have dropped him."
Did not see Captain Brown fire onoe from the
engine-house; does not think he fired once.
Green fired several times. The prisoners were
never nnreasonably exposed.
John Alstadt, one of the slave-owners who
wss brought into the Armory with the slaves
detailed the particulars of battering down his
door, and his seizure by six armed men. At
this point Stevens appeared to be fainting, and
a mattrass was procured for him, on which he
lay during the balance of the examination.
Alstadt resumed Thinks Brown fired sev
eral times; knows he saw him with his gun
leveled. Saw all the prisoners exoept the yel
low man Copeland.
Alex. Kelly detailed the particulars of his
collision with the insurgents, and exchanging
several shots. Could not identify any of tho
prisoners.
Wm. Johnson testified to arrest of Copeland,
the yellow man, who was attempting to escape
across the river. He was armed with a epoar
and rifle in thomiddlo of the Shenandoah ; said
he had been placed in charge of Hall's rifle
factory by Captain Brown.
Andrew Kennedy was at the jail when Cope
land was brought in. Questioned him ; said
ho canio from the Western Reserve of Ohio ;
that Brown came there in August, and em
ployed him at $20 per month.
Faulkner objected to the testimony as impli
cating the white prisoners.
Presiding Judge His testimony could only
be rooeived as implicating himself.
Kennedy rosumed Copeland continued, our
object was to release the slaves of this country ;
that he knew of ninoteen in the party, but
thero wero several others he did not know.
Joseph A. Breos was One of the prisoners in
the engine house ; was permitted to go out sev-.
eral times with a flag of truce during tbe firing.
Coppeo fired twine, and at the second fire Brown
remarkod, " That man Is down." Witness then
asked permission to go out, and found tbat
Beckham bad Just been shot, and has no doubt
that Coppeo shot him.' . -
Alstadt recalled Thinks that Captain Brown
shot tho marine who was killed ; saw him fire.
The preliminary examination being con
cluded, the Court remanded the prisoners for
trial before the Circuit Court .
The examination to-day is merely to see
whether the charges are ot sufficient import
ance to go before the grand jury. To-morrow
the jury will report a bill of indictment, and
the ease will be immediately eaiieu up lor
trial. There is an evident intention to hurry
the trial through, and execute the prisoners as
soon as possible, lor fear 01 an attempt being
made to rescue them. In cases of servilo in
surrection thirty days is not required between
the convietlon and execution, as in otner cap
iat offenBea.
Cut ri.kston, V a., October 25. ,
Circuit Court. Jeflersou County. Judge
Parker on tbe bench. Court assembled at two
o'olick, the Grand Jury was called and the
magistrates of tne Court reported tne result 01
the examination in the case of Captain Brown
and othors. The prisoners and Grand Jury
retired and the witnesses taken before them.
At five o'olook the Grand J ury returned into
Court and stated that they had not finished the
examination of the witnesses, and were dis
obarzed until ten o'olook to-morrow morning.
It is rumored that Brown is desirous of
making a full statement of his motives and In
tentions through the press, but the Court has
refused all furthor access to him by reportors,
feanug he may put forth something calculated
to influence the public mind and to have a bad
effect on the slaves. The mother of Cook's
wife was in Conrt throughout the examination.
The general belief is tbat took is still in the
mountains, near the Ferry. On Sunday night
the woman who keeps the canal-look says he
came to her house and asked the privilege to
warm himself. Sao knows him well, and is a
relative of his wife.
Coppee says he had a brother in the party,
and that Brown had three sons'. Also that
there were two others named Taylor and Haz
let, so that, including Cook, five have esoaped,
twelve killed and five oaptured, making twenty
two in all. ' The trial will commence to-morrow
mornine, beyond a doubt, though muoh diffi
culty is anticipated In obtaining a jury. Cap
tain Browns object in retusing counsel is innt
if he has counsel he will not be allowed to
speak himself, and Southern counsel will not
be willing to express bis views.
The reason given for hurrying the trial, is
that the people of the whole oountry are kept
in a state ef exoitemont, and a large foroe re
quired to prevent attempts at resent. It is
presumed they will demand soparate trials.
After conviotion but a few days will be given
then before exeoution. It is thought all but
Brown will make full confessions. The pris
oners, as brought into Court, present a pitiable
sight. Brown and Stevens are unable to stand
without assistance. Brown has three sword
stabs in his body and a sabre cut over the head.
Stovens has three balls in his head, and had
two in his breast, and one in his arm; ho was
also out on the forehead by a rifle ball, which
glanced off, leaving a bad wound. Tbe trial
will go on to-morrow.
