What Rev. Henry Ward Beecher Thinks
of the Harper's Ferry Affair.
The Plymouth Chureh, Brooklyn on Bun
day evening, wns crowded to repletion by a
nuiuorous congregation, to ' hear the pastor
Rev, Mr. Booohor speak upon the present
state of the country.. He lntroducod his sub
ject by in allusion to the difference between
right and wrong. The awful outbreak at
Harper's Ferry, and the agitation which seven
teen whlta men, holding oaptive two thousand
brave Virginians, while the san had . gone
laughing twice around the globe, bad caused
ia the minds of the people and press, ware
dwelt upon at length. On the oeoaelon of the
Kansas straggle, he said, the United States
had no troops to send oat, bat when seventeen
men eanie out and took up arms for the parposs
of setting slaves freo, there was no want of as
sistance to put them down. While he deplored
the misfortune, and sympathized with the old
man who had oome out and openly avowed
his principles, he, could pot but oondemn bis
madness. . i . , , , . . ...
; There was a right aud a wrong way of free
ing slaved, and to undertake an emancipation
with the aword was entirely wrong. ' He con
sidered it wrong to treat tho South with en
mity and bitterness, because it upheld
slavery. Ho would, like to seo all men en
joying freedom, but the right way to bring
about this desired result was not to excite in
the minds of the slaves a feeling of discon
tentment, but by preaohing to them duty
and Christ. It was wrong to excite slaves to
run away from their masters; but where a
man was in bondage it was his right to break
away, and to such he would giro shelter. An
escaped slave should be as woloome as his
own child. It would be hopeless to under
take to seek emancipation by the shedding of
dioou. . it vm naa ror tne siave, naa tor tne
master, and bad for she State, but for people
to 'free themselves was undoubtedly right. 'A
black man iu the North did not have the
privileges of a white mac; he couldn't work
nt any mechanical business, for the white
man would not work with him. . In church
and at other places they were set aside by
themselves."1 The example of the right spiri t
has first to be set in the North, and the South
must be treated with kindness. Love, truth,
honor and fidelity would tend to make tht
slave'free. ' ,, J; ' ,
A Disciple of Paul Clifford Before the
Paris Police Court—A Pickpocket
Lecturing on Natural History.
' A man named Hesault was recently brought
before the Coneotlonal Polios, Paris, having
been detected by two police agents just as he
was about to out off the pooket of a country
woman at the Jardia des Plantes, while giv
ing his unwary victim a leoture on the natural
history of the hippopotamus.. The mudut
operandi' ot the- learned professor Is thus de
scribed by the agent who arrested him:
. . "Madam,'',Bai4 thfnatoralist toh listener,
"this animal; which It also known by the nanio
of the sea-horse, does not much frequent the
society of man; it amuses itaolfi In the water
and In the marshy grounds; and grows fat
there like you or me. When alive.it eata
rattlesnakes, melons, and ' eometimes even it
own young ones, at you may have recently
read in1 all the journals of Paris. (Here the
professor quietly drew from big pooket a pair
oftoisiora) The savages make roast beef of
its flesh, wonted ttocklngs and rszor-stropes
01 its sain, ana wun its tail they rubricate
bell-ropes for their houses. (Hore the natu
ralist, who had bis scissors In his right hand,
gently placed his left on the pooket of the
woman.) After death they are liable to be
stuffed, as ft proof of which you may see sev
eral iu the Museum. Of Natural History of this
city." - ,.: v.-,., -V, ? '
k Here the lecture was brought, suddenly to
a close by the professor being salted by the
agnui jub us ue wss aoout to eneop nig coup by
cutting off tha-pooket. The woman lost the
oonclusiosHSf the explanation, but saved her
property. Renault, in hit defense, declared
be was about to use. the toissors -to out his

Baltimore Amusements—A Local Editor
Shoots an Acting Mayor.
JThe telegraph has already mentioned the
fact of the shooting of the acting Mayor In
Baltimore by one of the looal editors of the
Bun, bat that journal gives these particulars:
- An unfortunate ooourrence transpired last
evening at the Old City Hall, which it is our
unwelcome duty to record, and with profound
regret. The facts, as we learn them from Mr.
Hanna, a reporter on: the Sun, who is a party
to the affair, are to this effect: That he entered
the -station-house and found assembled there
some fifteen or twenty1 persons; among whom
was Wm. MoPhail, Esq., acting Mayor, and
approaching Mr. Haroourtj the telegraph oper
ator at the station, he asked If there was any
news.. . In' i. i, .; i,-i. .. .,, ., .
. Being answered that there was nothing of
note, he . asked jocosely, " What is this, a
political gathering?" to whioh Mr. Harconrt
responded angrily, bidding Mr. Hanna not to
joke with him, or something to that effeot, at
the tame time drawing a single-barrel pistol
and presenting it at Hanna, upon which Hanna
drew a revolver and with it struck Harcourt's
Slutol. At the same Instant Haroourt grasped
anna's pistol, and, cocking it, presented it
at . Hanna,1 who retreated within - the inner
roon. Immediately thereafter he heard a erv
of fdon't shoot", and the report of ft' pistol,
and; learning that Mr. Mol'hail was shot, ia
theexoitement which ensued, at the suggestion
of Jouie one present, he withdrew.
' tin the other hand, it ia stated by some who
were present that when Mr. Hanna oauio in
Haroourt said to him, "Where did' voo rot
such fine clothes?" To which Hanna angrily
responded, "Co you moan to insult nia?'' and
drew a single barrel pistol, whioh Haroourt
took from him, that he then drew a revolver,
when a souffle ensued, and in the etrnggle bo
tween the two the pistol went off, and the
ball struok Mr. MoPhail. . r .
It was immediately ascertained that the un
fortunate gentleman was seriously wounded,
the ball having struok the upper portion of
the thigh, and passing entirely through. : The
nervous system was for some time greatly
prostrated, but In the course of an hour aroao
tlon took place and oonsoionsness was restored,
the natural warmth also returning. Upon re.
severing sufficiently to converse, Mr. MoPhail
stated that the shooting wss entirely aooldenttl,
tnougo, oi course, no must ne patntuuy tensi

The Bead Sea hat nothing ot tie desolation
whioh It has been the 'pleasure of travelers to
describe, and it seems to smile at the secret
dread it inspired. - I, of course, took a bath
here, and for a swimmer who has a fancy to
keep his legs at well at hit head out of water,
I can imagine It must be quite pleasant. , My
Frenoh friend, who it not a little inolined to
oorpulenoy, oomplalned that he could not get
down into the water, and .floated about, now
one side up, now another, for all the world
like an inflated bladder. . On emerging from
the water, it wai evaporated by the sun ; and
the salt, orystalUing on our . bodies, gave us
the appearance of animated rook candy, or a
family resemblance to Lot's wife, with a sen
sation upon ourjskln as if wa had been pickled
for family use, and with a taste in our mouths
compounded of glauber salts and assafoetida.
We concluded that one bath in the Bead Sea
was enough for a lifetime, ., ,, ; ,. ., ,

Wendell Phillips on Harper's Ferry.
NEW YORK, November 2.
Wendell Phillips, of Bonton, delivered a
loeturo last night In Brooklyn, In which, he
argued that John Brown was the only Ameri
can who had acted boldly up to the true
Amerioan idos; oast aside also thoeo false
and fatal wrappings of an effeto conservatism,
and refused to' regard anything 'as govern
ment, or any statute as law, exoept those which
conformed to his own sense of justice and of
right. Virginia was not a State; Jlr. Wise was
not a Governor. The Union was not a nation;
all these to-oalled governments were organized
piracies: and John Brown waa to-day the only
real and true government on the soil of Vir
ginia, and had an infinitely better 'right to
hang Governor Wise than Governor Wise had
to hang him. He also ' (aid, "I think you can
make a better use of iron than forcing it into
chains."' -' '-,'-' ' ! ' , '

of Ohio, waa present on the plutfbrm; aud
being called upon for a 0coh, said ho was

allowed to rolled upon what he had heard
