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 tant one. 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 mate. 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 emy. 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 now cease. 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 just censure. 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 gether. 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. ziOr The Post Office Union is boiling over with rage because Gen. Speer was not elected Sheriff. Democrats who worked and voted for the General in good faith, are accused of treachery, and denounced as pirates. If the Union speaks for Gen. Speer, we may have something more to say upon the subject.— But why, Mr. Uizion, shed all your tears of blood over the defeat of Mr. Speer ?

Insurrection at Harper's Ferry---Great Excitement. 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 roon2: 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 from lowa. 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 rection. 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 him. 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. Wounded, Prisoners, 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 days. 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 coming. The names of all his party at the Ferry on Sunday night, except three white men whom he admits to send on an errand, are as fol lows, with their proper titles under the Pro visional Government. General John Brown, Commander-in-Chief —wounded, but will recover. Capt. Oliver Brown, dead ; Capt. Watson Brown, dead. Capt. John of Ohio, raised in Vir ginia, dead. Capt. Aaron C. Stephens, of Connecticut, wounded badly—has three balls in his body, and cannot possibly recover. Lieutenant Edwin Coppic, of lowa, un hurt. Lieutenant Albert Hazlett,. of Pennsylva nia, dead. Lieutenant Jeremiah Anderson, of Indiana, dead. Leutenant Wm. Leman, of Maine, dead. Captain John E. Cook, of Connecticut, es caped. Privates—Stewart Taylor, of Canada, dead; Chas. P. Fidd, of Maine, dead ; Wm. Thomp son, of New York, dead ; Dolp Thompson, of New York, dead. . The above, with the three whites previous ly sent off, make in all seventeen whites. Negroes—Dangerfield Newley, of Ohio, raised in Virginia, dead. Emperor, of New York, raised in South Carolina, not wounded, a prisoner. The latter was elected a mem ber of Congress of the Provisional Govern ment some time since. Lewis Leary, of Ohio, raised in Virginia, dead. Copeland, of Ohio, raised in Virginia, not wounded, a pris oner at Charleston. General Brown has nine wounds, but none fatal. A bushel of letters were discovered from all parts of the country. One from Gerritt Smith informs Brown of money being de posited in a Bank in New York to the credit of J. Smith & Sons, and appears to be one of many informing him from time to time as money was received. s 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 tained. - - 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 two hundred Sharpe'S rifles, one thousand pikes, and two hundred revolvers. These were brought in on Tuesday night, together with spades, pick-axes, tents, blankets, one military field spy-glass, $2OO to $3OO in gold and silver, and a call-whistle. do. do. Brown said he had arms and ammunition for fifte hundred men, but he expected the assistance of five thousand men. All the arms and ammunition were from abroad, and not from the armory at Harper's Ferry. The arms of the arsenal were not molested. LETTER FROM GERRET SMITH TO CAPT. BROWN. The most important and significant of the letters from Gerret Smith, found among the papers of Brown, is the following : 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 Kansas work. 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.
