j5Thc citizens' meeting in the Court
House on Tuesday night, though not
largely attended, was more successful
than could have been expected. Those
ttho were there, were of the right kind of
.tentorial for a business enterprise, and
when we see, such men as are on the two
Committees, take hold of a project, it is a
guaranty for its success. We publish the
proceedings elsewhere. It will be scon
that another mcetiug will be held on the
1st of November, when wo trust fcincere
ly that there will be a general attendance
from vll sectious of our couuty; and in
the meantime that our citizens will every
where encourage this enterprise by a lib
eral subscription fort-lock, when the Com
mittee appointed for that purpose, shall
wait upn you. We agree perfectly with
the writer of the article published in our
la t, that there is probably no one
ihlnjT better calculated to build up
this place, than the establishing in it of
a.pfoporly conducted boot and sboe fac
tory. That it will pay, if properly con
ducted does not admit of a doubt.

The strife in this county, as in many

Wo have been handed a scries of trea
tises on Mathematics, compiled by Bcnja
niiu Grcenlcaf, A. M., embracing a Pri
uinry Arithmetic, a Mental Arithmetic,
tbc Common School and National Arith
metics, a treati-e on Algebra, snd a work
on the -Element? of Geometry six books
in all. From the cursory examination
that wc have been able to give them, the-e

the exercises are of a practical character,

this little work is invaluable as a business

those who are preparing for a higher
course of mathematics, it is indispeDsible
Of the Common School and National
Arithmetics, they have been too long and
favorarlyjcuown to the public, to need a
word from us. They have recently un
dergone revision, and have been enlarged
and improved, even where everything ap
peared excellent before, and perhaps the
bighpst encomium that could bo passed
upon allthe works of this 6crits, is that
thoy arc written by the Author of Green

is tbc Agent for tho sale of the books in
this place, that he will furnish schools
with these books at half of the retail

The Express train going East, was

hands and a negro killed, while they were
endeavoring to get tho train through the

arid arrested two men, who bad come to
town with a load of wheat, and, seizing
their wagon, loaded it with rifles, and
sent them into Maryland. The insurrec
tionists number about two hundred and
fifty whites, and are aided by a gang of
negroes. At last accounts, fighting was
going on. '
The above was given just as it was re
ceived here. It seems very improbable,
and should be received with great cau
tion, until confirmed by further advices.
EAETlMOIiE,Oct.l7. A later despatch
received at tho railroad office says, the
afiYir ha been grcntly exagorated. The
reports had their foundation in a diflkul-j
ty at tho Armory, with which negroes had
nothing to do.
Baltimore, 1 o'clock It is apprehen
ded that tbe affair at harper's Ferry is
more aprious than our citizens seem wil
ling to believe.
The wires from Harper's Ferry are cut,
and consequently we have no telegraphic

Tho Southern train, which was duo here
at an early hour this morning, has not

There are many other wild rumors, but
nothing authentic as yet.

Their statement is to tbe effect that the

The Insurrection, so called at Har
per's Ferry, proves a verity. Old Brown
of Osawatamie, who was heard of on hi
way from Missouri to Canada with a band
of runaway slaves, now turns up in Vir
ginia, where he seems to have been some
months plotting and preparingfbr a gen
eral fctamnede of slaves. How ho came
to be in Harper's Ferry, and in possess
ion of the U. S. Armory, is not yet clear;
but he was probably betrayed or exposed,
ajnd seized tde Armory as a place of se
curity until he could safely get nwsy.
The whole affair seems the work of
madman; but John Brown has so often
looked death serenely in the face that
what seems madness to other doubtless
wore a different aspect to him. He had
twenty one-men with him, mostly white,
who appear to hnve held the Armory
from 9 P. M. of Sunday till 7 of Tuesdoy
morning; when it was stormed'by Col
Leo and a party of U. S. Marines, aud
its defenders nearly all killed or mortally
wounded Old Brown was severely woun
ded end his son (we believe his last sur
viving son) killed. Of the original
twenty-two, fifteen were killed, two mor
l ally wounded, aud two unhurt. The oth
three had pushed northward on Monday
morning guiding a number of fugitive
slaves through Maryland. These were
of courses harply pursued and fired on,
but had not been taken at our last advi
ces. Harper's Ferry was full of sold ierpand
militiamen yesterday and moro constanly
pouring in. Never before was such an
uproar raised by twenty men as by Old
Brown and his confederates iu this deplo
There will be enough to heap oxeora
tion on-tbe memory of these mintaken
men. We leave this work to the fit hands
and tongues of those who regard the fun
damental axioms of the Declaration ot
Independence as "glittering generalities."
Believing tbat the way to Univeral Eman
cipation lies not through insurrection,
civil war aud bloodshed, but through
peace, discussion, and the quiet diffusion
of scutiments of humanity and justice, we
deeply regret this outbreak; but remem
bering tbat, if their fault was grievous,
grievously have they answered it, we will
not, by one reproachful word, diuturb the
bloody ehrouda wherein John Brown and
his compatriots are sleeping. They dar
ed and died for what they felt to be the
right, though in a manner which seems to
ua fatally wrong. Let their epitaphs re
main unwritten until the not distant day.

The Murderous Plot.
The San Francisco papers come cloth
ed in mourning for tho death of Senator
Broderiek, while their columns teem with
tributes to the memory of the deceased,
and denunciations of the conspirator who
murdered him. One of them states tbat
several days before there was any an
nouncement of a duel, the vagabond pol
iticians in the interest of tho Nationa.1
Administration were heard to declare
that Broderiek was to be killed off that
be was never moro to sit in tho United
States Senae That Judge Terry was to
try his hand first, and if he did not
succeed, then .a second, expert shooter
wa3 to try, and so on until ho was
put out of the, way. Terry being tbe
best shot iu the State, was sure to kill
him. Then Terry was tho smallest loss
if ho should fall, as his term of office was
out he was under disgrace of tbe Vigi
lance Committee recollection, and could
be best spared out of the crowd who hun
gered aud thirsted for his seat in the Sen
ate. Terry, by all the tricks of the most
practiced duelist, killed the hated, bunted
man. He was not to bo spared by Terry
so no other man need try hi hand.

Let there bo gladness in every false

stood up like a pyramid of rough granite
amid the vile herd for ten years, is struck
down, hunted to the death, for his opio

nia is an offence which nothing but death
can atouo for. To staud for tbe right,
and battle against wrong, is iu this free
State an offense against tho chivalry so
great that blood alone can wash tho re
cord out. Blood has been shed, but the
record lives. Tbe record lives that the
man whose voice has tor ten years rung
for freedom in California, whose voice in
Congress was for freedom and against s
corrupt Administration, has been bunted
to death for it Rejoice, then, yo false
hounds of bis own native blood, ye who
carry the hod for Southern taskmasters;
ye who mix the mortar and make bricks

tyrants, vote to perpetuate slavery in the

The Wealth of Califonia.
In regard to the present production of
gold in California, It is not certain that it
is loss per annum than in tbe most palmy
days of its history, but the averaged val
ue to each laborer employed in the col
lection of the metal is undoubtedly con
siderably less; and will be yet further re
duced. According to the California Re
gister for 5859, a really valuable work of
statistics, there were in operation in 1859,
in fifteen counties from which information
had been obtained, three hundred and thirty-three
quartzcrushing mills, the ma
chinery of which cost $3,300,067
sixty-seven thousand dollars. A San
Francisco correspondent of the New York
Courier says tbat the richest quariz vein iu
the State is that of Allison' Ranche which
is believed to be the richest gold mines
in tho world. The first sixty-threo tons
of quattz from tho vein produced twenty
two thousand dolUra. Tho vein or lode
oalled by tbe miner., was opened in Oo
toberlBSfi. The yield during the endu
ing two years was estimated at one mil
lion five hundrod thousand dollars, Eight
thousand ton of .the rock had been crush
ed, which yielded two hundred dollars
per ton. Street & Soulsby's claim, in
Tuolumc county, ir supposed to contain
gold rock worth four millions of dollars.
Fremont's Mariposa mines yield five thou
sand dollars a week. Wo may add that
the authorities adopted by tho Rcdister
state the production to have been very
uniform sinoo 1H54, at about seventy mil
lionth of dollars per anum. Tho total
yield of tho California mines from the
discovery up to December 31, 1855 is
stated to have been five hundred and

Its taste is not like the ftewed pie, which

The remainder of the pumpkin can bo
cleaned out and kept in a cool pantry for
