WM.lnrj AC O BY, ED l TOR. BLOOSISIII Hi;. WEDMKBDIY, DEC. 11, 11869. Execution of Four Insurrectionists. COOK, COPPER, COPELAND and GREEN, the four convicted accomplices of Capt. Brown, who figured in the Harper's Ferry Tragedy, were all executed on last Friday, at the ap pointed time, in Charlestown, Virginia Cook and Coppoe exhibited, it is said, the most unflinching firmness. About the same military display was made on this occasion as was exhibited on the execution of Brown. The convicts were escorted from the jail by military companies and the execution ground well guarded by the military forming into | two hollow squares The bodies of Cook and Coppee were forwarded to their friends, the former to New York, and the latter to lowa. The bodies of the two colored con - I victs were interred, the day after the e.vecu- j tion, on the spot where the gallows was erected. The religious ceremonies in the ceils are spoken of as very impressive, and were conducted by the Rev. Mr. North, of the Presbyterian, and the Rev. Mr. YVaugh, of the M. K. Church. Green and Cope land were executed first, at about 11 o'clodk. Cook and Coppee, a few minutes belore 1 o'clock. The evening before the execution, a quarter past 8 o'clock, Cook and Coppee made an attempt to escape. They had suc ceeded, after about two week's hard labor, in cutting through their iron shackles, so that They could pry them off at any mo- i ment lltey should have their other work completed. With a bed-screw they man aged to remove the plastering from the wall, and then brick after brick, until space suf ficient for lliem to pass through, was open ed, all except the outer brick. This wall was immediately in the rear of their bed, ' and by pushing the bed up to the wall, i completely hid their work from view. Their room being on the first floor, and the aper ture was not more than five feet above the pavement of the yard, and when freed of their shackles, their acce'ss to the yard was quite easy. Hero was the rub, a smooth brick fifteen feet high, to scale; but with the aid of the timbers of the scaf fold on which Old John-Brown was hung, ' and which were intended for their execution on the succeeding day, this difficulty was soon and easily overcome. They gained the top of the wall, when their movements were checked by the vigilence of a sentinel on duty. Tho sentinel stationed near the jail reported that a quarter past 8 o'clock he observed a man on the jail wall, whom he challenged, and receiving no answer, fired at him. The head of another man was also seen above the wall, but he retreated as soon as the first one had been fired at. The tnan at the top of the wall seemed at first determined to persist, and was about mak ing an attempt to jump down, when the Fenlinel declared his intention of impaling him on his bayonet. Not till then did he retreat into the jail yard, with his comrade, where they both gave themselves up with out further resistance. Cook afterwards remarked, that if he could have got over and throttled the guard, he could have made his escape, as the Shenandoah mountains were only within ten minutes run of the jail wall, and had he of reached them, with his perfect knowledge of the moun tains, his arrest would have been very dif ficult. It being after night, but few of the military could have followed him. The general impression is, that if they had put off their attempt to escape until midnight nr thereabouts they might have succeeded in reaching the mountains. But on the other hand it is presumed they were fearful of being watched during the night, or des ired to have as much darkness as possible, to gain a good distance before daylight would allow of a general pursuit. Congress not Organized. YVe learn by the last proceedings that a Speaker is not yet elected. The thirteenth ballot has been taken, and the result of that vote was, Sherman, Rep., lto ; Boteler, 29; Bocock, 19; and the remainder scattering among various gentlemen. On several bal lots previous to this one Sherman received 112 votes. The whole number of voles on the last ballot was 226; necessary to a choice, 114. Schwartz and Hick man vote for Sherman. They have gone completely over to the Republican side of the house. The Message is being anxiously looked for every day. It may be possible that we can lay it before our readers next week. THE Ladies' American Magazine is of no little importance to the reading public; the January number for 1860 *is an improve ment on all former issues. The reading is excellent; and the embeliahmenla, of the first order. "Young Affection" is a beauti ful engraving. "Mother's Hope" is also a handsome engraving,—one very difficult to eurpass. The fashion plates are numerous and rich, displaying a taste that has not been equaled by any Magazine yet received by us for this or any other year. The La dies' Magazine is acknowledged by all to be one of the very cheapest— two dollars a year.

"CAMERON CI.UB."— Some of the leading Republicans of Danville have formed them selves into an organization entitiled the "Cameron Club of Danville." This organ ization has for its object, we understand, the promotion of the nomination of Hon. Simon Cameron for the Presidency by the Opposi tion National Convention. For the promo lion of Mr. Cameron's election it will take about two Clubs. A. F. Russet is President of this Club. . The Schuylkill Democracy. , The Democratic Committee of Schuyl kill county had a full meeting at Po'.tsville on the sth inst., to take into consideration matters connected with the campaign of 1860. Hon. Bernard Reilly presided, and a very excellent address was delivered by the Hon. F. \V. Hughes; after which tho Hon. George Rahn, from a committee ap pointed for the purpose, reported a series of admirable and patriotic resolutions, from which w extract the following: Resolved, That the recent abortive at tempt to create a servile insurrection at Harper's Ferry was a natural consequence of the teachings of the Repulican party, and that tho country should hold them re sponsible for it. Resolved, That in the opinion of this meet ing the Union of these Slates has been and is now more imperiled by the recent in surrectionary attemptat Harper's Ferry, and the teachings which brought it about, and the smypathies which followed it, than by any other act or series of acts which has ever happened Irom the formation of our government to the present time. Resolved, That we deeply deplore the bit ter agitation occasioned by the Harper's Ferry troubles, and that we turn with con fidence of the Democratic party as the only party that can calm the violent passions which now threaten the perpetuity of the Union, —and (eel assured that in 1860 it will again ptonounce its fideliiy to its ancient principles and its known patriotism, and restore peace and harmony to a troubled land. Resolved, That we utterly condemn tho expressions of sympathy in the Republican parly for the traitor and murderer, John Brown, and bis confederates, and consider such sentiments as countenancing treason as the worst ol crimes, and as repugnant to that comity, and inconsistent with that good faith due among citizens of a common confederacy. Resolved, That as to principles the great Democratic parly ol the country is a unit ; and that, although difference, slight and tri vial, as to the application of some of these principles may exist, yet it is our duty, in view of the enemy with whom we have to fight, and the enormity of the principles which we have to contend against to forget these minor matters, and shoulder to shoul der and hand to hand, do battle for our country and its Constitution, the result of which will be certain victory and a sore triumph of right over fanaticism and wrong. MR. SICKLES IN CONGRESS.—The Phila delphia Press, in speaking of the different members of Congress, thus alludes to Mr. Sickles : I am desirous of adding a line in refer ence to Mr. Sickles, of New York, and par ticularly in regard to the universally accept ed opinion that he is not spoken to by his fellow-members. It is quite true that there is very little disposition manifested by any of the Representatives to establish intimate relations with Mr. Sickles, but justice to the man himself requires that I should state that he seems to invite no such relations.— Every day, about fifteen minutes past twelve, when debate has begun, he walks in quietly from the side door, and takes his seat on one ol the sofas on the western side of the House, where resting his head upon his gloved hand, he remains seated, taking no part in the discussions, voting, when called upon, in a low voice. He dresses in exquisite taste, and has cultivated a large pair of brown whiskers. He seems con scious that public opinion is greatly against him, and although his bearing is full of his characteristic ease and coolness, it is singu larly retiring and unobtrusive. Sitting in the gallery on Wednesday and Thursday, I noticed several of the leading members of the House going up to him, shaking hands with him. and passing on to their seats. I have not met Mr. Sickles, and therefore, speak of liirn simply as an observer. DROWNED !—The wife ol Solomon Rob erts, living some four or five miles above this place, was drowned in the Susquehan na River on Friday night last. It seems that Mr. and Mrs. Roberts started front this place about dark in a carriage, to return home byway of the tow-path and had got nearly in sight of home, when from some cause, the irons attaching the poll to the wagon, gave way, and the wagon pre cipitated down a steep embankment into the River, where the water was deep and current swift. Mr. Roberts succeeded in swimming to the shore, but his wife togeth er with the wagon, were carried down the River. As soon as the alarm was given, every effort was made to rescue the drown ing woman, but the water was high and rough, and all their efforts proved unavail ing. She was last heard to cry for help about a mile above this place, since which time, nothing has been heard or seen of her or the wagon. She was about sixty years of age, a mother of a large family, and a woman highly esteemed by the communi ty in which she resided.— Tunkkannock Dem ocrat. THR Union County Teachers' Institute met in Middleburg on Monday the sth inst.. and continued to its varied sessions until Wednesday evaniug, same week. This meeting, judging from the report, was one of much interost and importance. Able and instructive addresses were delivered by different persons; and a string of resolu tions read and ylopled, among which we notice one sustaining their County Superin tendent in his efforts to advance the interests of the school system, and especially com mending the energy and perseverance which he has exhibited during his term of office. WOMAN DROWNED. —The wife of a boat man named Putton. of New Brunswick, was thrown into the dam at this place, by a low line, on Friday night last, and drowned.— Her husband is the owner of several boats, one of which she and two sous were ruu ning when the sad affair occurred. Imme diate efforts were made to recover her body, but without success, until Sunday afternoon. —Mauck Ckunk Democrat. Execution of Copelaud and Green. At half-past 10 o'clock, Gen. Taliaferro, with his staff, numbering about twenty-five officers, having given orders to prepare the two negro prisoners, Shields Green and John Copeland, for execution, took their departure, to join the main body of troops on the field. The military then formed a hollow square around the jail, and an open wagon, containing the coffit.s of the prison ers, drew up In front, with a carriage to convey Sheriff Campbell and his deputies. The crowd of citizens and strangers was very great—at least five times as numerous as on the occasion of Brown's execution most of whom wore already on the field, whilst others waited to see the- prisoners brought out. The religous ceremonies in the cell were very impressive, and were conducted by the Rev. Mr. North of the Presbyterian, and the Rev. Mr. Beverly VVaugh. of the M. E. Church. At a quarter before 11 o'clock, the prisoners', accompanied by Sheriff Campbell and the Rev. Mr. North, appear ed at the jail door, and with their arms pin ioned moved slowly towards the vehicle in waiting for them. They seemed downcast, and wore some of that calm, tearless spirit evinced by Brown under similar circum stances. They were helped into the wag on, and took seats on the coffins without scarcely looking to the right or left. The escort now commenced to move, the wagon being closely llanked on either side by a company of riflmen, marching in double file and lock step. At seven minutes before 11 o'clock, the procession entered the field occupied by the military, and tho prisoners cast a shud dering glance towards the gallows erected on the rising ground in its center. In two minutes more the wagon stopped at the foot of the gallows, and whilst the prison firs were alighting the companies forming the escort moved off to the position assign ed them on the field. The prisoners mounted the scaffold with a firm step, and were immediately joined by Sheriff Canpbell. After a brief prayer by one of the clergymen, the caps were drawn over their heads and the ropes ad justed around their necks. During the few moments they thus stood, Copeland re mained quiet ; but Green was engaged in earnest prayer up to the moment the trap was drawn and they were launched into eternity. Green died very easy, his neck being bro ken by the fall, and the motion of his body was very slight. Copeland seemed to dif fer very much, and his body writhed in vio lent contortions for several minutes. They were accompanied on the gallows by the Rev. Messrs. VVaugh, North and Lehr, to whom they bid an affectionate farewell, and expressed the hope of meeting them in heaven. The bodies after being cut down were placed in popular coffins, and carried back to the jail. They will bo interred to-mor row on the spot were the gallows stands, though there is a party of medical students here from Winchester, who will doubtless not allow them to remain there long. EXECUTION OF COOK AND COPPIE. The bodies of the two negro prisoners having been brought back to the jstil at about a quarter to 12 o'clock, notice was given to Cook and Coppie that their time was approaching, only one hour more be ing allowed them. The military movements similar to those at the first execution were repeated, and a wagon with two more cof fins was standing at the door of the jail at half past 12 o'clock. The same military escort was in readiness. Meantime the closing religious ceremonies were progress ing in the cell. Since the failure of the at tempt of Cook and Coppie to escape last night, their assumed composure and appa rent resignation had given away, and they now looked at the reality of their fate with the full conviction of its awful certainty.— They were reserved and rather quiet, but joined with fervor in the religious ceremon ies conducted by the Rev. Messrs. North, Lehr, and Waugli. When called upon by the Sheriff, they stood calm and quietly whilst their arms were being pinioned, and after bidding farewell to the guards of the jail, were helped into the wagon and took seats on their coffins. Their appearance was rather that of hopeless despair than of resignation, and they seemed to take but littles notice of anything as the procession slowly moved on to tho field of death. The wagon reached the scaffold at thir teen minutes' before one o'clock, and the prisoners ascendeil with a determined firm ness scarcely surpassed by that of Capt. Brown. A brief prayer was offered up by one of the clergymen, the ropes were ad justed, the caps drawn over their heads, and both were launched into eternity in seven minutes after they ascended the gal lows. They both exhibited the most un flinching firmness, saying nothing with the exception of bidding farewell to the minis ters and Sheriff. After the rope was adjusted about Cook's neck, he exclaimed, "Be quick, as quick as possible," which was also repeated by Coppie. After hanging .about thirty min utes, both bodies were taken down and placed in black walnut coffins prepared for them. That ot Cook was then placed in a poplar box labelled and directed as follows: "Ashbell P. Willard and Robert Crowley, 104 William street, New York, care of Adam's Express." The coffin ot Coppie was placed in a similar box, to be forwarded to his mother, in lowa. THE SATURDAY EVENING POST. —A Premi um Engraving to Every Subscriber.
