The Harper' Ferry insurrection, furnishes a raie opportunity for Locofocoism to air iu I nion Bating pretensions, at the expense of Republi canism. An ol'l maniac Brown driven mad by the murder of hid two sons in Kansas, killed by bor der-ruffians, entertains a will scheme of causing the negroes of Virginia to rise againat their mai lers. A moat guilty deed were the element of accountability present that being wanting, it became the act of a madman. Upon the strength of letters written to Brown, upon Kan as matters as lone ao as Jnn, Gerritt Smith is sought to be implicated in this in ad scheme, and through Liin, probably because he opposes the Republican party, and hates it-" leaders, that party is to bo drawn in and niaJa accountable for the blood spilt at Harpers' Ferry. The op pressed people of Scotland, groaning under the civil and religious tyranny of the House, of tu art, might with cjual propriety have been made responsible for the mad acta of John Balfour of Hurler. But fal.-o as U the reasoning, and doubly false the assertions by which the Republican organi cation is sought, to be charged by opHneiits, the colorable opportunity, is just such au one as Lo:ofocoism delights to avail itself. Give a Lo cofoco editor, the motive to bring a base charge, and he will bring it, though he knows that its refutation U but a pace behind, and that the lie which he yearLS to bring forth, can live but for a day. A combination of causes, woi Led together to give the wild old man Brown, power to work upon certain ill-advised and ill-coiiditioued men. and one of these causes was the inability of a Government coutwtvr uannu building by the Government, to pay hifl hands. Thus was a crowd of discontented men, out of employ, mon ey and patience, w ho were reckless and cared not what they did, brought to listen to mad and wicked counsels, for all of which, slavery now proposes to hold the Republican party responsi ble. Tiuly a praiseworthy task. Plai.n. The Buffalo Erprett a sound Re publican paper, speaking of the issues of the party, says: The Washington Uepuhlie has a ust appreciation of the position occupied by the j Republican party in regard to the Slavery ques tion. It coi. tends very propeily that the Re publican pai ty was formed, or rather revived, in ISM, In','., and 1S.V., to restrain the further territorial expansion of Slavery. It has no other bond of union than this; and if this is abandon ed, it is, by that very fact, resolved into its ori ginal elements, and dissolved as a party. It then discusses the proposition often made, that the Republican party cannot succeed in the Southern States without an abandonment of its principles, or, rather, that no opposition party, adopting Republican principles, can succeed in the Southern States, or in any no of them. In answer to this proposition, it contends that the Democratic ascendency, as it is now established in all the Southern States save Maryland, can on ly be overthrown by the resolute advocacy of the truly conservative and national creed of Re publicanism. It conclude bv asserting this truth : "Let the Opposition at the South pursue what course they choose, they may rely upon it that the Re publicans will neither modify their opinions, nor restrain the distinct and catilogical expression of them. We shall make in 1 8t0 the precise is sue which we ruado in 1S5C." The Usiversity. The University at Ann Arbor was never more flourishing than at pros ent. The undergraduates in the Literary, Sci entitle and Partial Courses, outnumber those of previous years by twenty per cent. The stand. ard of attainment required for admission to the Academical Course is very high, and progresses with the advance of the classes. Xo boy, how ever well fitted, can remain in class without thorough and constant application. The Professors' chairs are ably filled, and con stant assiduity marks the daily routine of exer cises. All seem determined to allow no Peat of learning in the Union to call Ann Arbor second. The Law School commences under the most hopeful auspices. The first class numbers sev enty, who listen to most able daily lectures from three able Professors, two of whom are success ful practicing lawyers, and the third a Judge of the Supreme Court. The Medical Department is largely on the increase. At the head of the whole stands President Tappan, a gentleman, a ripe scholar, of com manding talents, and of the widest and highest fame among educational men. IlaaXOXY. A moat rcaceable partv is the Locofoco a'.Kut now, in old Massachusetts as elsewhere. The telegraph announces, under date of Boston, Oct. 'go. that the democratic conveniion of the fifth Congressional district was held yesterday. A double set of delegates, re presenting the custom-house nJ Douglas inter est, were present. Many of the latter forced their way through the windows into the hall, an attempt having been made to exclude them. 8idoey Webster, Esq., was chosen chairman. After an exciting scene, the custom-house bolted nd organized separately. The Douglas men. claiming to be the regular convention, nomina ted if. . HaHet and Cornelius Doherty, both Douglas men, to the Charleston convention. The other convention elected John T. Heard and J. C. Lovejoy, friends of the administration. The democratic convention of the fourth Con gressional district has chosen James Riley and Isaac II. Wright, supposed to be in favor of Douglas, as delegates to the Charleston conven tion. rnoesix Bask Cask. The argument in this case having closed, the decision is dailv expec ted. 1 TaUsuoiTiso. The Executive Proclamation will be found in another column. What th South has had. The Albany Journal thus wittily tills what the South have had sinec the organization of the Government : The Presidency has been held by Southern i 11 l II .. . f - . i .I f r.ira men ami MaveiiUtaers uin w ine- ;vu' i and by Northern men less than twenty-five years. The Presidency of the Senate has ben bel l since 1809 by Souiheru men and Slaveholders, except for three or four sessions by Northern men. The Speakership of the House has been filled by Southern men and Slaveholders forty-five years, and by Northern men but twenty-five. The Supreme Court is now, and for many years has beer., so constituted that a majority of the Judges, including the Chief Justice, are Slaveholders. The Secretaryship of State has been filled by Southern men and .Slaveholders forty years; by Northern men but twenty-eight years. The Attorney-Generalship has been filled by Southern men and Slaveholders forty-two year, and by Northern men but twenty-sis years. The Secretaryship of the Navy has been held by Southern men and Slaveholders fourteen out of the last sixteen ycais. This list might be indefinitely prolonged through all the departments and all th subor dinate officers of Government. Evcrwhcre the Southern men and SloVeholdeis have had the lion's share. Nor is this the only way in which they have monopolized a disproportionate share of power. Under nearly every Administration since lS-'J, (except two years of Taylor) the Northern men holding office have been subser vient and willing tools of the Slavt-hold.rg Par ty and been aided to carry out whar.-ver policy it dictated.

If, in a.Mition to this, 1 could be informed relative to the hcalities and kinds of rock occurring in your county ; the mineral pio ductions of interest; fossil bones or any other fos.-il remains, you would contiihute much to w aid a rapid completion c( the wo.k which I have in charge. The otily iuluceli:e::t whii h 1 t an !:-!- that should lead you to undertake the labor prop.iseil, is the praise of that pilMie spirit, and the gratifi cation of that toaaciouontss of doing good, which prompt to nearly all the noble deeds that do honor to the names of their authors. Kvery one however acting on the suggestions of this circu lar, will receive full credit for the pait which ho shall have performed, in the publir-hed repot ts of tho Geological Survey ; and will thus be enabled to enjoy the gratitude of his fellow citizens. It is earnestly hoped that this circular may not be put aside for some future consideration, but that the work suggested may be immediately commenced. The paper of Mr. S. A.

The New York V.-rV. is not sure of carrying the State Locofoco. It says: "We have said that New York will in a'l proba bility be carried by the Republicans in Novem ber. We dare say that there is not an intelli gent Democrat who does not entertain this opinion. The treacherous proceedings of the Regency at Albaty, their shameful ruffianism at Syracuse, and the disgusting rowdy elements of Tammany Hall, have all operated to demoralize, disorganize and break down the Democratic party. Thus, agaii st the gederal drift of the Northern tide, it would be absurd any longer to consider our November election a doubtful affair." Dkath ey FiRKARM.s. The Port Huron says that a man named Bisco, living a few miles west or that city, w luie hunting one day last week, climbed upon a fence, and as he sat there, lowered his gun to rest it on the ground. Iu lowering it, the hammer somehow caught upon a stick which sprung it with such force that it exploded the cap, and the gun discharged its contents into the side of Bisco, the ball passing up nearly to the shoulder, from whence it was finally abstracted.

Detroit, Oct. 24th, 1 85!). Me. Emtor: The latest God-send to the Lo cofoco, to counterbalance the disastrous election news which they have been obliged to smoke for a,.vpral davs. is the affair at Harper's Ferrv. Old John Brown, of Kansas, who had his sons niur dered there in cold blood, sweve he would have revenue upon the elavery party, and conceived an insurrection in old Virginia. The first ac count Mated that his whole "armv" consisted of sixteen deluded white men and five "niggers. but Governor Wise, the great letter writer of Virginia, who has been upon the field of battle, sava tiiere were only tuielve men iu all, and five of thrin " iiisrers;' unless he refuses to recog nize the latter in the count because they are "chattel." Well, old Brown, with his Siven white-men and five negroes, marched upon the town of Harper's Ferry and took it. The town i- compo-ed of over '. of the F. F. V.'s aud their gallant sons, who are always talking about the "co h-" of honor, aud challenging each other to "iight" though these little affairs generally "flash in the pan" after a wordy correspondence in ai ranging the choice of weapons aud the place of annihilation. Iu the midst of this flourishing village of jHMt Virginia Democrats was the U. S. Arsenal, occupied by 2.") soldiers, well drilled in military slviil, and surrounded with stacks and cor. Is of pistols, mu-kets, Sharp's rifles, liombs, mortars, cannons, lowie knives, spears, pikes, -n C-I...U. idiot, .rpcJ.C-, SWOrdS, pOW- .ier, grape, canni-ier, slugs, bayonets, jack knives, Miid all the modern paraphanalia of war; and these J.'.o guardians were the progeny of the F. F. V.'s, and ijli-ri'tHf, true Hue " Irmcrat every mother's son of them. Brown and his party numbered some IT, including five negroes, or 1 not counting them. Hit drew his army up into line, and proceeded fi'St to surround and take the town of J.tHHi rampant Virginia Loco f.ieos. his next step was to take the Arsenal, which contained the brave sons of Virginia, and some -gn oi u stand of arms. He divided his little force, and posted a sufficient number at different p e is to hold the 'g,M Virginia Loeo- focos prion-i-s and prevent their escape from the town. It is -iipposed that this stripped him of a 1 his white men, and perhaps more, so he had hn h and one or more of the five niggers to -tor in the At-en.il. But knowing the pluck and cowaidivc of Pro-.-Iavery Locofocoisrn, ho rushed up with a tit in step, and in about three minutes and a halt he had undisputed Kisscssion of the buildin:: and a large number of gallant prisoners J,. 1 . 1 1 . i. (.in- imeiiai lor hours, until I ncle S. mi sent the marines on from Wash ington and ili-lodged them, and released the im prisoned Democracy. Gov. Wise is very much incensed at this display of pluck by a portion of his 4'constintenis," and calls them "nbeep"- says he would lather have lost both legs and arms than had such a disgrace overcome his auiiis old S'afe. When the aimv came thev killed all but thice or four of the invaders vaders, inflicting e'njht wounds upon old Brown tif'ttr fn- hud k'i rr nd''r'd and called for quarters! Such is the bravery, it would seem, of even the United Slates -oldiers who breathe a pro-t-lavery atmosphere, and are surrounded by pio slavery othcers. Now it is well kuo'.vn that the-e sdavcrv advo cates, and dyed-iii the-wool Democrats of tl South, have been prating and preaching for a !i--o!ul'oii of the Union, and frightening old G.-n. C.i-s nnd other northern doughfaces halt out oi ilielr wits, lor the past twenty years, by their hold threat to dissolve the Union anyhow, unless everything went as they would it to ;o. Suppose those who lave always lteen op posed to the Locofoco party, and now mostly composing the present Republican party, had iiUmrfd them to execute their threats and dis solve the Union ! what an awful fate would have overtaken these most unfortunate 2,'ihi Virginia lambs in the bands of old Brown and his five niggers ! !

For this timely act and inter ference on the part of "Uncle Sam," the I-oco-foco party ought to be decent enough to stop their threats about dissolving the Union for at least a month or two, until Gov. Wise shall hang old Brown, which he probably will, for this marked insult to the " chivalry" of the old do minion; for it "i( be construed into au insult and nothing h ss, for any one man though he be ciazy and half a dozen tiiggers to go and capture a whole town of 2,000 pure Democrats, The Locofoco editors throughout the North are a set of ingrates in relation to this affair. They don't seem to appreciate the value of the Union in the part it acted in rescuing 2,000 of their political brethren and co-laborers from the clutches of Brown and his five niggers. I say they don't seem to realize the value of the Union in the case, because they are still abusing the opposition to the Locofoco pro-slavery party the same opposition that goes in for maintaining and protecting the Union. Is not this the basest of ingratitude t I have little doubt that they are secretly grateful to the Republicans for pre serving the Union, and thus saving 2,0' 0 of their unfortunate but valiant political brethren, but they are so bent on d's-olving the Union that it seems to come the " natural wav" to them to abuse the Republicans, though they have just done them such a good turn by successfully op posing their disunion scheme. Thev ouirht to come out openly and tender thanks for this kind act, i-r it perhaps saved them :!,nm precious Democratic votes for President in 1m0 and 2,ia Democratic votes on that occasion i.j be very useful just then, even in Virginia. The editor cf the 1'rrs here, iu his anx iety to elect John Harmon Mayor, so that he can get the Custom House, seems to overlook all these considerations, an. heaps column upon column of abuse upon the opposition to the Lo cofoco rarty, and even foolishly attempt1 to connect the Republican party with the opera tions of old Brown and his five negross in cap turing 2,'ssi Virginia Democats. I presume, however, that he takes his cue iu this matter from the New York H'raJd, which works for much better pay than the Fre Pret$ gets or even will get if it gets even the Custom House. And all the Kttle organs will echo the howls of the Free Prtt and more especially vour near neigblior, who has the dignity of the pro-slavery party to sustain by keeping the Fost-Ofliee. These editors are very much chop-fallen over the late election news, and this chance to scream about the irrepressible conflict," " great re lief to them. For a week or two they have been devoted mostly to matters pertaining to the peace ful pursuits of agriculture ; it suited them much better thaa the news from the elections. Would it not be wise ia them to drop the ' irrepressible conflict" theme, and try to explain to the world how old crazv Brown and five "chattels" cap- tured 2,Xs) Virginia Democrats . They certainly i must do this, or stop their pratins about the ! pluck and braverv of the F. F. V.'s and their sci- ons. ine irrepressible connici ooug bardlv serve them in this ca.-e, unless 2, j " rro slaverv brethren can make a better show xauisi seven white men and five negroes for this affair hardly amounted to a "conflict" at all, of any kind.

Several slaves were found in the rocni, with the insurrectionists, but is not b. lii-vei. they were there willingly; indeed. Biown's expecta tions as to trie slaves ru!uiig t t.im, was utterlv disappointed. None seem to have come to hiiu willingly, and ia ino-t case were for-! ced to deert their niist.-rs. But one ir.-T.uice, in which the slaves male a public appearance with arms in their hands, is related. A negro who had been sharply used by one of the towns-people, when he found a pike i:i his hands, used his brief authority on the c'.ii.-n and had him taken to the armory. Tho citizens imprisoned bv the insurrection ists all testify to their lenient treatment. They were neither tied nor insulted, and bevond the outrage of restricting their liberty, were not ill useL Capt. Brown was always courteous to them, and at all times assured them that they should not bo injured. He explained l is pur poses to them, and whilst ho had the w orkmen in confinement made an atoiit. on speech to them. Duringjthe previous night he .-poke freely to Col. Washington, and referred to Ins sons. Me sai l he had lost one in Kansas and two here. He had not pressed tliem to join him in the expedi tion, but did not regret their lo-s they had died in a glorious cau-e. The position of the prisoners in the eiigtne- houe during ine tiring t .Moml ty, and at tt:e moment of the final atta.-k was a very trjin; one; without any of the incentives of the coin bat thev had to ri-k the balls of their t;ie:nl-. but happily they all escaped. Dining iuesday morning one ot I oi. U n-h- igton s negroes came in and repor ted that Capt. Cook was in thv' mountain, only three miles off. The Independent Gr.-y. of Balti more, immediately started on a scouting expe dition. I:i two hours thev returned with two wagons, loaded with anus and ammunition f at Capt. Brown's. The anus con-i-ted of boxes filled with Sharpe's rith s, pistols, etc., bearing tin stamp of the Mas-achu-etts Manufacturing Com pany, t hieopee, Massachusetts. There were found a qiimtity of U. S. ammu nition, a large number of spr.os, sharp iio: bowie knives fixed upon pnl.- a ten idle weap on intended for the use of the negro.-- .mil spade, pickaxes, shovel-and cvervthiiiir that might be needed, thus proving that the ekji. tion was well provided for, that a large pailv men were cxpecfid to be aimed, and that abundant means had been provided to i I all expenses. How u.l the-e supplies were got to this farm without attracting olis.-i vati.ii, is strange. They are -nppos,-. t,( hive been brought through P nn-vivania. The Giev's i"'rs"i-.i" - ' m n i.u v aecured part of his aims, but with hi- more perfect knowledge id the leinioi v he was ena bled to escape tliem. On their way to the Fetry with their spoils, they were greele 1 with le-aiu cheers. The wajous were given into the eu-t.i-dy of the government.

I did not wi-h to do so, bin ou Luc. d us to do it. Various qucsrons of this kind were .iit to Capt. Brown, which ho answeicd cle.ulv and freely, and seemed anxious to viiehcate hiai-. ll.

The telegraph brings the news of the decease of the non. John Y. Mason, our late Hinistor to France. Mr. Mason was bom in Virginia, about the year 1795. In ISlo he graduated at the I inversity oi Aonn v aronu x. He devoted himself to the'study of the law im mediately after his graduation, and rapidly at tained distinction in his profession. For some wars he tccupied the oihee of Judge of the District Court of lrginia. Between ine years 1 S3 1 and IS 17, he acted as a representative ot his native State in Congress. The prominent part which he took in political affairs, and the abititv which he displayed, gamea mm a t-eai iu Tyler's Cabinet. He accepted the appointment of Secretary of the Navy under that Presideut, on the 14th of March, 1S44, and resigned the position on the Sd of March, 1S45. He was not, however, permuted to remain long in private life. President Tolk assigned hiiu the position of Attornev General in his Cabinet, Mr. Mason occupied this post but a short lime. 1 it IS5ti he was transferred to the avy Pepartmeht, with the duties ot which his previous experience rendered hiiu more familiar. He occupied this position with much credit during the remainder of Mr. Folk's administration, retiring to private life upon the inauguration tt Gen. Tay lor. I pou the accession ot Gen.

From time to time rumors of impaired health, and ot consequent incapacity for business, have reached this country, and it has occasionally been stated that he was to be removed, in order to give room to some more efficient and vigorous representative. .V.

It is noticed as an evidence of the changed state ot affairs in Ireland, that there has not, for many a day, been so much activity in the building trade, as at the present time.

A iiiter ot any capacity will get 1 lt'.s per week. This extraordinary de maud is easily accounted for. There has been since the famine a steady and very decided in crease of wealth in Ireland, extending to landlords, tanners, trader, ami other c!ase. Formerly the owners of the soil were mink deeply iu im providence. But ail that is changed now. The te-wns are improving, country mansions are im proved, and manv new ones are m course ot erec tion ; and so general is the demand for artisans that the supplv is inadequate. Besides, there art' orders for tradesman of this class from some parts of r.ngl.tnd, and altogether employment is much more active and labor is b.-ttur remunerated than perhaps at anv former period. The accounts from l ister show- that employment is more brisk in the linen trade, and that the prospects are im proving. Si i kkvik Col rt.
