Mr Simpkins found theliorse just , to

and when they returned home at night,
Mrs. Simpkins really had to acknowledge
that,, notwithstanding the ; crosses of the

and found more honest folks than she
thought there were in the whole world.

Young Men and Trek Frogs. The
following quaint comparison is forcible
and true, ll would be well if our young
men would nleilie mota! ol the lerse pas
sage below: . . , ,
The tree frog acquires the color of what
ever il adheres lo lor a short lime; i! it be
found on the oak it will bear the color o
that tree; if on the sycamore or cypress,! jl
will be a whitish lu'owu; and when it is
found on ihe growing corn il is sure lo be
green. Just 6o ii is'', with young men;
iheii 'companions tell us what their char
acters are; if i hey associate with ihe vul
gar, the licentious and ihe prolans, then
ilieir' henris are already blained with their
guilt and shame, and they will themselves
become alike vicious. The study of bad
books, or the love of wicked companions,
is the broadest and most - certain road
ihai a young man can travel; and a few
well directed lessons in either will lead
them on, step by step lo the gale of de
struction. 0ur moral and physical laws
show how important il is to have proper
associations of every kind, especially in
youth. How dangerous it is to gaze on a
picture or scene that pollutes ihe imniagi
naiion or blunts the moral perceptions, or
has a tendency to deaden a sense of our
duty to God and man. . ., ,

This Forbes appeared in our eity some
time after the explosion of the .European
Revolutionary Uprising ,of 1848, and
claimed, to. have .borne an imporUnt part m
that movement. ; Of course, he was needy,
and the "Herald" says he wa "at one
time a reporter or translator on- the 'Tri
bune.'," This is quit probable, though
1 do hot recollect it. . .: ; v. '
- Sinie time hue in 1856. (I think il
was,) I was apprised that lie was going
out lo Kansas to help the Free Slate men,
then threatened. with annihilation by the
border, rufflansof Missouii, backed by Fed
eral functionaries and Hoop. Lawrence
had then been twice beleaguered and once
sacked; Otsawaltomie had been twice rav
aged and burned; Leavenworth .had been
just belore swept clean of Free Siats men
by a Missouri raid William runup us
ing butchered while defending his own
house, his bro her., .badly, wounded, and
capiured, w hile those who made no resist
ance were sent down the river at an hour's
nonce. . As Forbes professed to be a capa
ble and experienced military ofticei, espe
cially .qualified for guei.illrt or border war
fare, and as he had always cl iraed to be
an earnest Red Republican and foe of ev
ery form of Human Slavery, I thought his
resolution naiuial and .commendable.
KnowiiK' him lo be poor, I yave him 820
as lie was sinning; others gave him larger
sums; how much, in-all, 1 donotktiov;
but l think hia total receipts from fiiends
ot r :ee Kansas, on, account of Ins resolve,
cannot have fallen below $700.- .';'
He went was .absent, eome months
came back that is all 1 know of his ser
vices to the Free SlAle cause in any shape.
Whether because: he was not needed, oi
was not trusted, or was found incompe
tent, 1 do not know I only know that
he did nothing, and was practically worih
nothing. I believe he spent art of the
money given bin inpriuiMig a -pamphlet,
embodying his notions of guerilla or par
tisan wariare of course no dollar ever
came back. I think 1 heard of him before
his return, clamoring lor more money.
In due lime, lie reappeared in New
York, and came lo me (as lo others) wiih
complaints ll.at he had been deceived.
misled, swindled, beggared, his lamity
(in Paris) turned into ihe sireeis lo
starve, &c. tfco. 1 tried to ascertain who
had deceived him, what piotnises made
to him had been broken, Am., but with
little success. All I could make out was
ihat some one he now says il was Old
Brown had promised him something in
the way of pecuniary recompense for his
services, which hud not been made good,
and that his family were cn'isequenily re

To this hour, I have never learned
what Brow u (or any one else) promised
Forb' 8, nor how far the promiser pro
fessed to have ihe right lo commit others.
1 do not be icvu that John Brown ever
wiliullv deceived him or any one else. . 1
am very suie that no one was ever au.lior
ized lo engage (he services of "Col.
Forbes" in behalf of the F'lee Siate men
of Kansas, on condition thai said Forbes
should, be authorized to charge his own
pi ice fur those services, and draw, ai
pleasure, on 6ome responsible party1 for
payment.; I have m-ver heard any one's
version of the matter but Fuibe's; and I
confidently inter from this that,, if there
was mutual misunderstanding and disap
pointment in the premises, the employing
parly had decidedly the worst ol it.
,, Forbes says that in response to his
complaints and representations "argued
that I he had no legal claim, according
to the lower law." U really seems to me
that there-was n room for argument n
thai point. He further says thai I toM
him he "ought to have known that en
gagements ol this sort never are kepi
4iever are meant to be kept." As 1 have
not to this hour been able to ascertain
what "eniratremeni," if any, was made
with him, nor by whom, this cannot be
the full and lair purport of my remark. I
did urge that, if he had a contract with
any one, whereby others were held bound
to pay him money, whether in definite or
indetini-e amounts, he ought lo be able to

Iii unstippoited assertion..- Had -Brown
been any how indebted lo Foibes for ser
vices lo the Free State cause, I doubi not
that he (B.) would have seitled with him
and at least acknowledge the obligation ill
wining. - Had Urown stipulated that out
ers should pay him money, he (U.wouiu
at least ' have seitled the account ana
given him (F.) an order on the person
who was to pay it. But Forbes showed
no contract,, no acknowledgment iol
ii.debtedness, no evidence that any .; one
but himself considered the friends of Free
Kansas, indebted to him to the amount of
one farthing. -- ', ;,. , .
The whole matter showed on its faoe
that whoever employed Forbes,' felt that
F. had got quite enough out of Free State

"had pio legal claim," and that "engage

is, such "engagements" as he appeared

the following strange tale:
About two weeks ago. Mr. John Elder,
of thin town, had an under-sack for a bed,
filled with straw at Kenmore, by a negio
man. It was brought home and placed
under a feaihei bed which wits slept on by
a daughter, of Mr. Elder. The young
lady complained of slumbeis disiuibed by
distinct thumps from underneath, bu: ex
animations revealed nothing. On Tnurs
day morning, while Miss Elder was silting
down 6lairs, facing the steps which led to
her loom, she was stni'iled by a curious
noise, and looking up.'discoveied a moc
casin snake descending, blowing and his
sing in a siyle peculiar to the reptile. , An
examination of ihe up-slairs premises was
made at once, when a 6mall hole was dis
covered in the iindersacking. and. on lip
ninif the bed cpen the full length sk'n of
a -uake was found at. ihe hole, which his
siiakeship had shed befoie he resolved on
the strike for l.is .freedom. .The lady had
occupied rather unenviable quartets i , for
the last fortnight. ,

ihev must be held -responsible. I do nut
think "the inquisitive gentleman" from

ought to have. found, a lelier of mine aik
dressed to Bro'vn; at least 1 wioi him,
addressed to West Audover, Ohio, saying
we should be glad id Sue him aljefleisi'in.
He had beeu at'Clevefnndand liud Ifc-;
tured there, Our people had felt a great
desire to see him, and we were a little sur
prised that he did not call at our village
which is the seal of justice for ihe county,
as it was said he had'visiied a son who
was living in that vicinity.
I am entirely unable to state the time
he whs in our place; but have no doubt
Brown was correct in his siatemeiit.
When I came to this city, I would have
said, I never saw Brown but once Upon
reflect ion, however, I am of opinion thai
lie came lo Jefferson on Saturday aftei noon,
thai so far as 1 was informed, hia object
was to make arrangements for the lecture.
On Sabbath, after the regular .seivioe,
ho spoke hi our Church. Tlie minister ol
ihat Chtjrch and of other CI urches, 1
think, attended the lecture. Ladies and
gentlemen were present. Republicans and
Democrats all listened to his stoiy wiih
attention, ll is impossible for me at this
lime to give an abstract of his lecture. If
any one desires knowledge on this point, 1
would lefer him to Hon. Jonathan War
ner, a Democratic leader of ihat county.-
He was present, and one or twj of his sons;
and being very pro-slavery, he would be
more likely to recollect particulars than
myself. (Laughter and applause.) He.
spoke of his Kansas troubles; of his ex
pedition into Missouri, and bunging off
some' twelve or twenty slaves; and lie
utged it as a solemn christian du y to as
sist slaves lo obiam iheir freedom, lie
gave us clearly lo understand that he held
lo the doctrines of the Christian religion
as they were enunciated by ihe Savior.
1 1 am not aware that he spoke of going
into Slave St'ties to aid slaves in escaping
from bondage; bui .1 had the lmpresoimi
ihat he would do 6o, if oppoi lunity should
present. 1 think, however, thai 1 inlened
ihis from the fad thai l.e had done it in
Missouri, raiher than from what he said.
Aliei he do ed, I addressed a few wolds
to the audience iu favor of a contribution;
referring to his condition, lo the death ol

he had no business which he could lollow
lor his support. 1 believe lieaily every
Democrat as wi ll as Republican present,
gave something. - -
After the close of the meeting I cor
dially invited him to lake tea at my house.
While there, at llie fireside. 1 enquired as
to the particulars of his Missouri expedi
tion. Mrs. Giddings also put questions.
1 fully expressed my own opinions as to
ihe crime ot Slavery, llie ri. hl of a Slave
lo his liberty at all times andunder all cir
cumstances. 1 oiu not express as radical
views as I had done in Congress; such is
not my habit. This 1 presume is the con
versation which Brown delicately re used
lo make known lo the "inquisitive gentle
man" from Ohio. While we weie thus
engaged, his carriage came, and lie left
me. Tliese are the oniv limes l ever saw
him: Neither in his lecture, nor in con
versation, did Ik say one word as lo his
having any associates, or assistants, or
arms; nor did he speak of Virginia, or of
Haiper s Ferry, ot organization or oi pro
visional government; nor do 1 believe that

he was in Ohio; but tins is opinion merely.
I see the telegraphic dispatches repre
sent that tome one informed Mr Brown,
or somehndy elue, that J. R. G. had taken
thiee hundred dollars siock, etc. It would
hard'y be supposed ihat 1 would reply to
such an intimation from an anonymous
writer, directed lo an anonymous person.
This report will gain no credence wheie t
am known. No man knowing the limited
state of my finances will believe 1 ever
gave three hundred du lurt to Captain
Brown or lo any othet man. I did, how
ever, understand that Brown was in the

Noon, night, moinini; passed, bui he came
not. A week rolled by, bui ne appeared
