The London Times on the Harper's
Ferry Affair.
The London Timet of November 5 oloses an
article on the affair at Harper's Ferry a fol
lows: These occasional outbreaks are not peculiar
to American slavery, bat were the scourge of
all the nations of antiquity, and of none so
muoh asRomein the very palmiest days of the
Republio. A servile war is a subject from
which history willingly averts her face, and
the outbreaks whioh from time to time have
taken place In America have bees forgotten
by the European publlo as soon a they were
Suelled in torture and in blood. But each of
iese insurrections, oonteinptlble a they may
appear in numbers, in intelligence and in or
ganisation, is a symptom of a state of things
which a wise and understanding people will
do well not to neglect too long. That security
of lL'e and property whioh is, after all, the
main end and objeot of oivil society, does not
exist at least in the European sense of the
term in the slave States of America.
The white population oan never forget,
either as judges, as legislators, or proprietors,
that they are a small minority scattered
among a large and bitterly hostile majority.
They never know in its full foroe the meaning
of the word "seourity." If they lie down to
rest they know not but they may be awoke at
midnight by the light of their biasing houses,
and tbe yells of the inoendiaries. If they
wander in the forest they feel no confidence
that the hand of the assassin does not await
them behind every thioket. Danger begets
fear, and fear oruelty, and that cruelty again
inoreasea danger. Strong as is our sympathy
for the oppressed raee that toils beneath the
lash in the Southern States of Amerioa, we can
not bring ourselves to wish that their bonds
may be broken by an experiment so frightful
as that which has once again been tried and
has onoe again failed the experiment of a
servile war. There was a time when the best
men in Amerioa looked on slavery as merely
a provisional and temporary institution, and
looked forward to the time when the bonds
should drop from the hands of the Afrioan,
and the assertion of the Declaration of Inde
pendence that all men are free and equal
should no longer be a mookery and a reproach.
But that time seems to have passed by, and the
language of the southern slaveholder is now
rather that freedom is an exceptional insti
tution, destined one day to be swallowed up
In the more natural and more humane rule of
slavery. We eannot, therefore, be surprised
to see suoh reasoners reminded from time to
time, by warnings like that afforded by the
Harper's Ferry insurrection, how insecure is
the basis on which the slave-owner builds, and
how dangerous it is for a nation which carries
bo venomous a serpent in bor bosom, to be for
ever trifling with the possibility of a foreign
war, tne nrat eueci ot wnion must almost
necessarily be to rouse the sleeping destroyer
iuto life and activity.
A Bbooklvn Matron Elofks witb a Youho
Mam and $20,000. An establishment on
Brooklyn Heights was on Sunday morning
the scene of deep sorrow, it being formally an
nounced to tbe guests assembled at breakfast
that they were henceforth to be deprived of
the lady who had for years presided at the
board. The lady bad left the house of her
husband, a highly rsspeotable gentleman, at
an early hour Saturday morning, ostensibly
for the purpose of going a-shopping, but in
reality with a purpoae of effeoting a union
with a gay Lothario, with whom she was de
termined to link her fortunes. After the two
had met in New York, according to previous
agreement, they procured passage on the City
of Baltimore and sailed for Europe. The lady
had, up to the time of this molanoholy event,
sustained an unblemished oharaoter. She
leaves three ohildren, the oldest of whom is
about twelve years. Her companion, a young
man, had been a boarder at the establish
ment up to Saturday. He is reputed to be
possessed no of personal attractions, and to be
worth about $20,000.
Dkath or a Dbbpibado in thb Illinois Pen

burglary, in September, 1855, from Cook
County. He was about fifty-four years of
age, and from tbe first gave the officers a
great deal of trouble. Ho led the revolt in
the penitentiary two years ago, and barely
escaped being killed at that time by the
?;uard the shot intended for him taking ef
ect in another of the desperadoes, with
half a dozen othors ho was punished in July
last for firing the wagon-shop. Early in Oc
tober be commenced a succession of attempts
to injure himself, concluding with severely
cutting his throat. Since being sent to the
Hospital at that time he has manifested no
desire to repeat these attempts till within a
few days.

Rktcrn op Charles Sumner from Eubope.
The New York 3W4m of Tuesday says: It
gives us great pleasure to announce the re
turn of tho Hon. Charles Sumner from Eu
rope, who arrived yesterday at Boston by the
Canada. He comes back ready to take his
seat in the Senate, and to resume the duties
and responsibilities of that oflioe. His health,
as we learn from his own lips, he considers as
completely re-established. He feels in full
possession of his natural physieal vigor, and
that the exorcise of his brain is no longer for
bidden or limited by tho heavy trammels of
a diseased and suffering body. Several of
Mr. Sumner's personal and political friends
mot him, on the arrival of the Canada at her
wharf, with a hearty welcome.
The Boston Journal of Tuesday evening ob
serves ! -
A large number of his personal and political
friends called upon him this morning at the
residence of his mother, No. 20 Hancook
street, to congratulate him upon his safe re
turn. Ho was also waited upon by a commit
tee of his political friends who tendered to
him a public dinner, which, however, he re
spectfully declined. It had been arranged to
give Mr. Sumner a complimentary serenade
this evening, but at his earnest request even
this ovation has been dispensed with.
Mart, thb Motheb op Washington. The
editor of the New York Prcthjterian writes
from Fredericksburg, Va., concerning the
mother of Washington, as follows:
There are those still living here who are
able to speak from their personal reoolleotiona
of "Mary, the mother of Washington." A
venerable lady with whom I have been talk
ing tells me that she oan distinctly reoall her
short, rather thiok-set figure, and her peculiar
round straw hat and red cloak, as in her child
hood days she was acoustomed to see the old
lady stirring around the neighborhood. The
traditions are that she was not remarkable for
amenities of cbartoter, but rather for method
and order, strict household government, and
decision of purpose. To these characteristics
her immortal son was doubtless indebted for
his admirable system in all his pursuits, and
for his inflexible endurance and determina
tion. It is generally understood that she did
not sympathise In his revolutionary ideas,
thinking that he would have done muoh better
to have attended to his surveying than to tbe
pitting himself against the venerated and alt
powerful mother country.

Captain W. II. Wilson, from London to Car

steamer, is an entire wreck, and we regret to
say that every soul on board perishod, in
cluding the pilot. None of the bodies have
yet been recovered, and to the present time
only the head-board and a small part of the
wreck have come on shore at Padston, Eng
land. Captain Wilson belonged in Wellfleet,
Massachusetts. ,It is supposed that there
were about thirty persons on board at the
time of the disaster. The .Fawit' was a fine
ship of 1,040 tuns, built at East Boston in
1858, and was owned by Wm. F. Weld & Co.,
of Boston.

sorry I've transgressed; and now I have done.
Ahl shut me not out from the free light of sun.

but well. I'm a Briton by birth, and I'd
have you to know that I was once well off,
though I'm now rather low. Restore me to
freedom but give me relief, from my bonds,
and I'll bless you, Oh, most worthy chief. If
you fine me, it may be supposed very fine,
but you never shall handle one stiver of mine;
cause why, I've not got one, my person pray
try; so that fining, you see, will be all in my
eye. Mayor Well, I can not send to prison
one who pleads his cause so eloquently. The
Constable tells me yoa-cam quietly, so you
are discharged; but mind, don't come here
again. Prisonor Most potent, I thank you;
Oh, long may you rule; I'll frankly confess
that I have been a fool, but never again will
I ever offend, so my path to my lodgings di
rectly I'll bend. No more I'll be ship
wrecked on whisky's sharp rocks; but, magis
trate, tell 'em to give me my box. Mayor
Certainly. Prisoner Grammercy, your wor
ship, and now fare thee well, elsewhere to all
people your kindness I'll tell; goodgentlo
men, all, I will bid ye good night. Witn your
leave, gentle sir, I'll vanish from sight.
Here tbe prisoner made a low bow, and,
grasping his box, vanished. We are bound
to confess 'that the above account of the case
presents but a feeble outline of the reality,
and the rhyming of tbe poet in trouble, who
for some twenty minutes kept the Court and
all present in roars of laughter.

otewurt, in ouiun Dcuuate, juass., recently
died at thegreat age or ninety-six yeata. The
following account is given of her strange per
sonal history :
Her father was a white man, a sea captain,
and her mother was a full-blooded Indian.
She waB brought up in one of the firat fami
lies in the town of Scituate, and had until
within a vear or two lived in the family down
to the fifth generation. Within that time
she had been unable to support herself and
became an inmate of the alms-house. She
was a woman of good manners and possessed
a great deal of pride. She was muoh averse
to going to the alm-ahouse, and until the day
of her death was in the habit of dressing in a
very gay style. She requested, just before
she died, to he laid out in her bright pink
dress, and to have on her lace turban, which
was decked very gaily with feathers and
showy ribbons, and her 'kerchief round her
neck. She also wished her coffin to be lined
with flowers. She also requested to be buried
in the burial ground with and near the family
she had lived with most of her days. She
wished to be carried to the Methodist Church
and have the Episcopal minister attend her
funeral. She requested the minister to state
(which he did) that she had never been out
of the limits of the town, and had never en
tered a ohuroh door until she was carried in
for burial.
A Monstkb Cbibncv. A chimney, 468 feet
high from the foundation, has been comple
ted in connection with the Crawford-street
Chemical Works, at Glasgow. The founda
tion extends to 11 feet under ground, and is
fifty feet in external diameter. The base ol
the chimney at the level of the ground is 34
feet wide, and the innor diameter is there 20
feet, while the wall is 5 feet 6 inches thick, ex
clusive of a coating of fire-brick 1 foot 6 inches
deep, which reaches up for about 50 feet on
the inside. To build the chimney, 1,500,000
bricks were required, each of which is capa
ble of sustaining a pressure equivalent to 90
tuns per square loot. The weight of these
bricks is 8,000 tuns, and the cost of putting
them in anything but a "thin red line" over
each other is estimated at about 10,000.
Ssiztiii op $60,000 wosth op Diamonds
$80,000 worth of diamonds, jewelry and watch
movements were seised, on tbe arrival of tbe
steamship jlti'a, at her dock in Jersey City,
on Sunday the 13th Inst., mostly the property
cf two Spanish gentlemen, who made an
ineffectual attempt to smuggle it on shore. It
appears that a wide-awake Jerseyman taw
several Spaniards, who arrived that morning
on the Ana, who were conversing aside, and
appeared to show considerable anxiety. Mr.
Hart, tbe Surveyor of the pet, was apprised
of their tuspiobus aotions, and a watch was
kept upon their movements until the seizure
was made.
Dr. Bbowsson on Frsnch ahd Irish Ca
tholicism. Dr. Brownson, in his St view,
thinks the Gallicand Celtic Catholics have
more religion of the head than tbe heart. He
says :
"We find with the French, and evn with
the Irish, far more Catholic piety or senti
ment than Catholic principle; and greater
horror, with the latter, of eating meats on
Fridays, than of lying and stealing; and
with the former of misplacing a genuflection
than of rejecting a dogma." .
Bice ahd Paoni. An Irish news-carrier,
says tbe Builder, who sometimes eourts the
Muset, has given his idea of the church-building
taste of the people of Amerioa in the fol
lowing lines, which contain more truth than
"They puts ne a front to the street,
Like ould Westminster Abbeyil
But tli I u they thinks to chate tha Lord,
And builds tha back part shabby."
Tbi Epqlish Mihistrt. The London
ikforntn Advertiser gives currency to the fol
lowing rumon: That Lord Campbell will
cease to be Lord Chancellor, and, upon his
retirement will be raised to the dignity of an
Earl; that tbe Lord Chief Justice of England
will take his seat upon the woolsack at Chan
cellor, and that the Lord Chief Justice Erie
