The Future of the Party.
The result of the recent election has clear
ly demonstrated one fact, that without union
and harmony in the Democratic ranks, Penn
sylvania will soon be Republicanized ; and
the question, how can that necessary union
and harmony be accomplished ? is an impor
In our judgment, men of sense, "and pru
dence, and sound principles—men devoted to
the interests of the party—must have more to
say in its organization, and management, and
discipline ; and mere demagogues—corrupt,
superficial, bigoted, designing, office-seeking
politicians /ass, or the objects which all true
Democrats desire, union and victory, can not
be attained next year, or probably for many
years to come, if, indeed, ever.
We have been beaten in Pennsylvania
twice in succession—beaten in the State, Sen
atorial, and Assembly tickets—beaten badly.
When before, in the history of our party,
did such a result occur?
Let us beware of a third disaster, the evil
consequences of which we will not even esti
It is not many years since Ohio, Michigan,
Wisconsin, lowa, Maine, New Hampshire,
and Connecticut were strong, reliable Demo
cratic States. Where are they now ? In the
emb'i'ace of Abolitionism. Through bad man
agement, under the lead and dictation of
weak, or ambitious, or false men, the Demo
cratic strength has been gradually frittered
away—and now they are Republicanized, or
Abolitionized, or Oppositionized, and lost to
us for years, if not forever.
Men can no longer be driven into the sup
port of false principles, or corrupt measures;
they are too enlightened and too independent
to be coerced by the old-fashioned party drill.
The gag and the lash frighten them no lon
ger. They must be reasoned with and con
vinced, or theywill remain inactive, lA' choose
the worse alternative of going over to the en
It is time for leading politicians to think
of these things, to reflect upon these facts, and
to change the course of their tactics. If we
desire success in future, the time for denun
ciation and proscription for slight or material
differences of opinion involving no infidelity
to principle, has gone by in Pennsylvania—
and we trust that the absurd plan of strength
ening the Democratic party by purging it of
its most active and intelligent element; will
The unqualified support of the policy of an
Administration must no longer be made the
test of party fealty. We profess to be bound
together as a party by principle ; and when
the recognized organ of the party—the Na
tional Convention—has agreed upon and
enunciated a Platform, that, and that alone,
is binding upon Democrats. The moment
that is overstepped, or fallen short of, by sue
cessful candidates of the party, for high or low
offices, the members of the party, the masses,
who constitute its vitality and strength, have
a right to object, complain, and oppose, if
they think proper, without rendering them
solves liable to censure or expulsion.
The Democratic doctrine that the majority
shall, in all cases, rule, is founded on the sup
position that the majority aro enlightened,
honest, and just. When the contrary can
be shown, the rule fails, and men are not
bound by it, any further than to an observ
ance of law and order. They may not enter
into conspiracies or foment tumult, but they
may protest and denounce, without incurring
The intention is that, in political organiza
tions as well as in civil governments, founded
on the Democratic principle, the majority,
shall be ascertained by the voice of the par
ty, or the people, as the case may be, unin
fluenced by bribery or corrupt or pernicious
influences. It is to be a verdict of the com
mon honesty and intelligence of the people,
" unawed by influence and unbribod by gain."
Hence every Administration should stand on
its own merits, and of these the uninfluenced
and unprejudiced public must be free to judge.
It was never intended by the framers of our
government, or the founders of our party,
that administrations or office-holders, beyond
the mere exercise of their own votes, should
exert themselves to perpetuate power which
brought them pelf. This is an innovation
which has crept in since the days of Monroe,
and the country will never be well governed,
or the just rightv•of the people respected,
until the practice is discountenanced and dis
carded by all party organizations.
The Democratic party, which is conserva,
tine as well as progressive—for the terms do
not necessarily conflict—should set the exam
ple, and we believe they will.
The storm of passion which has agitated
us for now nearly two years past, has almost
subsided, and it is time for us to reason to
It is of vital importance to the Democracy
of this State and of the Union to carry the
next election ; and we can only carry it by
prudence and wise counsels.
In October, 1860, we shall have a Gover
nor and Members of Congress to elect, and a
Legislature upon whom will devolve the se
lection of a United States Senator ; and in
the November following we will be called
upon to elect a President of the United States.
In view, then of the importance cf the next
election, let us, as rapidly as possible, free
our minds from prejudice, and act with the
calmness, and honesty, and justice of men
who have at heart only the general welfare.
In this, and in no other spirit, can we van
quish the party against whom we must con
tend for victory.—So says the Harrisburg
State Sentinel, and so say we.

Insurrection at Harper's Ferry---Great
On Saturday night the 16th inst., a party
of men, white and black, under the lead of
John Brown, of Kansas notoriety, seized the
United States Arsenal at Harper's Ferry,
Virginia, and compelled citizens to enter their
ranks, while others were held as prisoners.—
The town was taken possession of, and great
alarm and consternation prevailed. The trains
ware detained and telegraph wires cut.
The alarm spread rapidly and in a few
hours military companies from Charleston,
Martinsburg, and. Sheperdstown, Virginia,
and Frederick, Maryland, were on the ground.
After a passage over the bridge had been
forced the insurrectionists entrenched in the
armory, where they held a number of promi
nent citizens as prisoners.
We give the particulars as far as we have
HARPER'S FERRY, Oct. 18, 8 a. In.
The armory has just been stormed and
taken, after a determined resistance. COL
Shutt approached with a flag of truce, and
demanded the surrender of the armory. Af
ter expostulating some time, the rioters re
fused. The marines then advanced, and
made a charge, endeavoring to break open
the doors with sledge hammers, but it resis
ted all their efforts. A large ladder was then
used as a battering ram, and the door gave
way. The rioters fired briskly, and shot three
of the marines, who exchanged shots through
the partly broken door. The marines then for
ced their way through the break, and in a
few minutes the resistance was at an end.—
The rioters were brought out amidst the most
intense excitement, many of the armed mili
tia present trying to get an opportunity to
shoot them. Capt. Brown and his son were
both shot, the latter is dead, and the former
is dying. Ile lies in the armory enclosure.
He talks freely and says that he is the old
Opawattomee Brown, whose feats in Kansas
have had such wide notice. He says his
whole object was to free the slaves, and jus
tified his actions ; that he had possession of
the town, and could have murdered all the
people, and had been murdered in return.—
J. G. Anderson was also shot down in the as
sault. He was from Connecticut. The dead
body of a man shot yesterday, was found with
in the armory. Brown declares that there
was none engaged in the plot but those who
accompanied him. The prisoners are re
tained within the armory enclosure,
HARPER'S FERRY, 12 m.
Soon after storming the armory, four dead
bodies of the insurgents who were shot yes
terday were found within tho enclosure.—
Capt. Brown and his son are dangerously
wounded. Only two of the insurrectionists
are unwounded, viz: Edward Co pith (white)
from lowa, and Shields Green (colored) also
The party originally consisted of twenty
two persons, of whom fifteen are killed, two
mortally wounded, two unhurt, and three es.:
taped with the slaves. On Monday morning
soon after the assault on the armory, some
firing took place from the hills on the Mary
land- shore, supposed to be a parting salute
from Cook and his party, who left on Mon
day morning. The fire was returned with a
general volley, but the parties were too dis
tant to do damage. A company of volunteers
have gone in pursuit of the fugitives.
There are propably a thousand armed men
now congregated here. Reinforcements have
been pouring in all night from all parts of
the surrounding country.
HARPER'S FERRY, 1Z• p. m.
The Secretary of War has telegraphed to
Col. Lee that Mr. Ould, the District Attor
ney for this District, will proceed forthwith
to Harper's Ferry, to take charge of the legal
proceedings against the prisoners and bring
them to trial.
The train is now getting ready to convey
horses and men from here to pursue the riot
ers into any State or locality where they may
have fled. This is the order of the President,
at the request of Gov. Wise.
BALTIMORE, Oct. 18, 6 p. m.
An eye witness, who has returned from
Harper's Ferry, describes the scene there as
follows :—The first attack was made by a de
tachment of the Charlestown Guards, who
crossed the Potomac river above Harper's
Ferry, and reached the building where the
insurgents were posted, by the canal on the
Maryland side. Smart firing occurred, and
the rioters were driven from the bridge. One
man was killed here, and another arrested—
the latter ran out and tried to escape by swim
ming the river. A dozen shots were fired
after him, and he partially fell, but rose again
and threw his gun away, drew his pistols,
both of which snapped. He then drew his
bowie knife, and cut all heavy accoutrements
off and plunged into the river. One of the
soldiers was about ten feet behind him. He
turned round, threw up his hands, and cried
" don't shoot." The soldier fired, and the
man fell into the water, his face blown away.
His coat-skirts were cut from his person, and
in the pockets was found a captains commis
sion, to Captain F. H. Leeman, from the pro
visional government of the United States.—
The commission was dated Oct. 15th, 1859,
and signed by A. W. Brown, commander-in
chief of the army of the provisional govern
ment of the United States.
A party of five of the insurgents, armed
with minie rifles, and posted in the rifle ar
mory, were expelled by the Charlestown
Guards. They all ran for the river, and one,
who was unable to swim, was drowned. The
other four swam out to the rocks in the mid
dle of the Shenandoah, and fired upon the
citizens and troops assembled upon both banks.
This drew upon them the muskets of between
two hundred and three hundred men, and
not less than four hundred shots were fired at
them from Harper's Ferry, about two hundred
yards distant. One was shot dead ; the sec
ond a negro, attempted to jump over the dam,
but fell shot, and was not seen afterwards ;
the third was badly wounded, and the re
maining one was taken unharmed. The
white insurgent wounded and captured died
in a few moments after in the arms of our in
formant. He was shot through the breast,
arm, and stomach. He declared there were
only nineteen whites engaged in this insur
For nearly an hour a running and random
fire was kept up by the troops against the
rioters. Several were shot down, while many
managed to limp away, wounded. During
the firing the women and children ran shriek
ing in every direction; but when they learned
the soldiers were their protectors, they took
good courage, and did good service in the
way of preparing refreshments, and attend
ing the wounded. Our informant who was
on the hill when the firing was going on, says
all the terrible scenes of a battle passed in
reality beneath his eyes. Soldiers could be
seen pursuing, singly and in couples, and the
crack of the musket and rifle was generally
followed by one or more of the insurgents
biting the dust. The dead lay in the streets
where they fell, but the wounded were cared
for. Captain Brown's wounds consists of a
sword cut in the forehead and a bayonet
wound in the kidneys.
BALTIMORE, Oct. 19.—The following im
portant intelligence from Harper's Ferry, has
just been received.
Last evening a detachment of the marines,
accompanied by some of the volunteers, made
a visit to Captain Brown's house. The first
visit was to the school house and not Brown's
residence, as supposed yesterday.
They found a large quantity of blankets,
boots, shoes, clothes, tents, fifteen hundred
pikes, with large blades affixed ; and, also,
discovered documents throwing much light
on the affair. Among them are the printed
constitutions and by-laws of the organization,
and having or indicating a ramification of
the Union ; and they also found letters from
various individuals at the North.
One from Fred. Douglas, containing $lO
from a lady for the cause.
Also a letter from Gerritt Smith, about
money matters, and a check or draft by him
for :$lOO, endorsed by the cashier of the
New York Bank, whose name is not recollec
ted. All these documents are in the posses
sion of Gov. Wise.
The Governor has issued a proclamation,
offering $lOOO reward for the capture of
Cook. A large number of armed men are
now scouring the mountains in pursuit of
THE KILLED AND WOUNDED.
HARPER'S FERRY, Oct. 19.—The following
is the number of the killed and wounded du
ring the recent insurrection :
Killed, 5 citizens.
Do., 15 insurgents.
HARPER'S FERRY, Oct. 19.—The prisoners
have been committed to Charleston jail to
await the action of the Grand Jury, when
they will be indicted and tried in a few
The arrangement about the jurisdiction has
been settled in this way. The local authori
ties are to try the prisoners for murder, and
in the meanwhile the United States authori
ties will proceed on the charge of treason.—
Governor 'Wise said to Mr. Ould, the U. S.
District Attorney, that he had no objection
to the General Government proceeding against
the prisoners ; that is, what will be eft of
them by the time the Virginia authorities are
done with them.
Brown is better to-day, and has made a
fuller statement of his operations. He says
that he rented the farm of Dr. Kennedy six
months since, and the rent is paid until next
March. He never had over twenty-two men
at the farm at any time that belonged to the
organization, but that he had good reason to
expect reinforcements from Maryland, Ken
tucky, North and South Carolina, and the
Canadas. Ho had provided arms sufficient
for fifteen hundred men, including two hun
dred revolvers, two hundred Sharpe's rifles,
and a thousand spears, all of which were
left at the farm. lie also had an abundance
of powder and fixed ammunition. All the
arms were from time to time brought from
Connecticut and other Eastern points, to
Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, and were di
rected to J. Smith & Sons, Kentucky Farm,
his assumed name. They were packed in
double boxes so as to deceive the parties who
handled them on the way to the farm. He
says that he made one mistake in either not
detaining the train on Sunday night, or else
permitting it to go unmolested. This mis
take, ho seemed to infer, exposed his doings
too soon and prevented his reinforcements

FURTHER PARTICULARS OF THE INSURRECTION.
On Governor Wise reaching the arsenal,
old Brown received him with the utmost com
posure, though evidently suffering much
from his wounds. He said, "Well Governor,
I suppose you think me a depraved criminal.
Well, sir, we have our opinions of each oth
er." The remark was made with no disre
spect whatever. The Governor replied, "You
are in the hands of the State, and I have
questions to ask, which you can answer, or
not, as you choose." Brown answered every
question, and made a full confession, which
will be published hereafter. Brown said he
was conscious he was in the hands of the law,
and was prepared to meet his fate; that as
far as he himself and those already in custo,
dy were concerned, he had no concealments
whatever to make; that he had been mista
ken in his calculations about assistance from
others, otherwise he would have given much
more trouble. He said that the whole plot
was well contrived and arranged as far back
as 1856, and that he had reason to expect as
sistance of from three to five thousand men,
that ho looked for aid from every State, (Vir-
ginia included.) Upon being asked if any
negroes or whites in or about Harper's Ferry
were pledged to him, he declined answering.
- But upon reflection he framed an answer in
these words: " From my visits and associa
tions arid inquiries about here, I have a right
to expect the aid of from three to five thous
and men." Being interrogated very closely
by Wise as to where the boxes of guns and
ammunition came from, Brown said they
were shipped from Connecticut to Chambers
burg, Pa., directed to " J. Smith & Son," in
two boxes, and were hauled to Kennedy's
farm, in Maryland (the rendevous) by dri
vers who knew nothing of what they con
A provisional constitution was found on
one of the rioters, (Stevens,) and shown to
Brown, to know if it was genuine. Upon
hearing the preamble read, be pronounced it
genuine, and confessed that he was the au
thor chiefly, though the document was amen
ded in their convention. He declined an
swering questions that might implicate oth
ers until yesterday, when he said he had fixed
upon Harper's Ferry in 1856 as the point to
commence his operations against the South
ern States ; that he had fully examined its
strength, ascertained the number of men in
charge of it, and the probabilities of taking
it; said he rented the Kennedy farm in Ma
ryland about two years ago, for his two sons,
Oliver and Watson, under the name of Smith,
to secrete the weapons, &c., and had contin
ued, from time to time, to add to his stores.
He thought he would have succeeded had he
held Phelp's train at Harper's Ferry ; thinks
he would then have been able to hold the
place long enough to inspire confidence in
him and his plans, and then his promised
support would have come up.
Brown confessed that he had twenty-three
boxes of Sharpe's rifles, and a number of
Colt's revolvers. There had been found, also

PETERBOROUGH, Juno 4, 1859.
Capt. JouN BROWN-My Dear Friend: I
wrote you a week ago, directing my letter to
the care of Mr. Kearney. He replied inform
ing me that he had forwarded it to Washing
ton. But as Mr. Morton received last even
ing a letter from Mr. Sanborn saying your
address would be your eon's home, viz.,
West Andover, I, therefore, write you with
out delay, and direct your letter to my . son.
I have done what I could, thus far for Kan
sas, and what I could, to keep you at your
Losses by indorsement and otherwise have
brought me under heavy embarrassment the
last two years. But I must, nevertheless,
continue to do in order to keep you at your
Kansas work. I send you herewith my draft
for $2OO. Let me hear from you on the re
ceipt of this letter. You live in our hearts,
and our prayer to God is that you may have
strength to continue in your Kansas work.
My wife joins me in affectionate regard to
you, dear John, whom we both hold in very
high esteem. I suppose you put the Whit
man note into Mr. Kearney's hands. It will
be a great shame if Mr. Whitman does not
pay it. What a noble man is Mr. Kearney.
How liberally he has contributed to keep you
in your Kansas work. Your friend,
