Execution of Four Insurrectionists.
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
THE Ladies' American Magazine is of no
little importance to the reading public; the

ment on all former issues. The reading is
excellent; and the embeliahmenla, of the

handsome engraving,—one very difficult to

and rich, displaying a taste that has not
been equaled by any Magazine yet received

Address, Henry While, 87 l'ark Row, New
"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
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
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.
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
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
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.

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
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
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.
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.
