for this reason 1 allude to it. John Brown
vas a bravo man ; he had the courage to
attempt lo execulo what the cowardly ac
cessories to the in u i der dared not to at
tempt to do. He knew the peat Ity if he
lulled in his enterprise. He carried his
life in his hand forfeited, mid he paid the
penalty manfully. The Kepi.blican parly
now disown the uct ; they call him a mo
nomaniac, an insane man 1 but when the
telegraphic sires, with lightning speed
brought tho news of his death to New
lirgland, so depraved at that time was tho
public sentiment here, that the villnge
church hells tolled out his funeral knt-ll,
and tho ministers of God, with a lew hon
oiable exceptions, prayed in their pulpits
lhat the depailed spirit of Ihe patriot
saint might rest in pouco. This act, Mr.
President vas the death-blow lo Ihe peace
of Iho Union. Without it, Virginia
would not have acceded and God grant
that we tuny yet recover from it. 1 know
the names of the persons who were en
gaged in this transaction, nnd khall leuve
a record of then: for hisiory. (Perhaps ii
may not be improper, however, for mo to

ind exclaimed in substunce, "Why stand
we here idle? To the rescue!" A rush
ivas immediately made for ih Courthouse,
and at the door s'ood a poor laboring man,

wife un-1 twp children were probably sleep

ho was toiling for their daily bread. The

inn was imnieui'iieiy assassinate! upon

never knew. These men, M President,

river into Georgia and Florid i occupied
nearly two columns of tho daily paper:
recounting the successful capture of "tijht

that such a man should pronounce "one
regiment of blank worth two regimonts

that whito sol-lieis refuse to serve with
such fanatics a.id traitors to tho Conttitu
