Niw Yobs. January 24. No testimony haa
oeen given Deiore the Committee cf investi
gation in any way implicating the Republi
cans with John Brown's raid.
Mr. Realf states emphatically that the
movement was known to but few persons, as
Brown wu a secretive man, and kept his own
counsels. None who aooomranied him to
Harper's Ferry put Kagi was informed of the
plan, whloh did not contemplate running off
negroes. He says, also, that Brown and
those in his confidence were radical Aboli
tionists, who denounced the Republicans.
When Senator Wilson made his spoeoh in
Lawrence, they usailed him for failing to ap
proach their standard of duty. Mr. Wilson
appeared before the Committee, and stated
that he bad written to Dr. IIowo, of Boston,
for the original letter wbioh had been referred
to by Realf.
Tnat letter was written in May, 1858, and
substantially tells Dr. Howe that information
has reached bin to the effect that Brown in
tended using arms furnished for Kansas by
tho Massachusetts Aid isocioty in a manner
not oontomplated, and advises that they should
tie witnarawn irom mm. Mr. uiair, or col
linsville, who manufactured the pikes which
figured at Harper's Ferry, states that they
were orderod during the Kansas troubles a
weapons of protection. Mr. Callendor, cash
ler of the Bank at Hartford, proves that Brown
had funds there, which were drawn to furnish
supplies for Kansas. Neither had the re
motest idea of the movement in Virginia nntil
it was pnbllsned.
The Herald't correspondent ssyt: Realf eon
eluded his testimony before the committee to
day. It was a detailed aocount of the organ'
ization of the Brown Provisional Government,
in Canada, which has already been published.
He testified that he went to England In 1858,
and knew nothing about Brown's operations
after that time, lie wu requested to exam
ine certain letters found in Brown's bag, to
see if he could Identify them, but testified that
ne Knew nothing about Brown's correspond
ence or the authorship of the letters.
It is evident that some members of the com
roittee have been disappointed in Realf's tes
timony, he having testified to nothing of any
importance that was not before in evidence.
Mr. ii. B. Newton, the Vermont member ol
the .National Kansas Uommlttee. and rirevi.
ousiy tne leader 01 a colony at Mapieton, Bour
bon County, Kansas, confirmed the testimony
of Mr. Corning. The refusal of the National

the invasion of Kansu by armed bodies of
men, He was stopped, senator Wilson wont
before the committee to-day and informed
them of the time ho would produce a copy of
tne letter to ur. uowe, concerning tne move
ments of Brown, based upon the information
he reooived from Col. Forbes.
He sent to Natlcb for It. The Chairman
informed him they were willing to give him
his own time to prepare his testimony.
