LET US THINK A LITTLE.
The attempt of a score of infatuated
persons at Harper's Terry to combat and
overthrow the National and State Govern
ments, is nothing so very strotge. We
need not go back to the "horrors of St.
lomingo" or other West Iudia Islands,
or to other parts of the world, in past cen
turies, nor need wo recount the alarms
and agonies caused by Slavery before our
Hovolutionary War collisions of Despot
ism with Liberty, as woful and horrible to
the enslaver as to the enslaved. We will
commence with the close of the Revolu
tion, and revive a memory of tome of the
real, alarming rebellions, of responsible
men, not all caused by Slavery, but some
by other alleged or Teal evils.
In New England, about 1785, at one
time numbered some Too Thousand men
in arms. It was suppressed, after much
alarm, and with considerable address.
This, of course, was all owing to the
Jilack Republican party.. .albeit, the party
did n't then exist !
The WliiKkcjr Insurrection,
In 1792, '3, extending nearly fifty miles
around Pittsburg in every direction, em
braced, it is estimated, fkcen Thoutand
f 'jilting me "shrieking," not for Liberty,
nor for Niggers, but for Free Liquors 1
An open rebellion against the General
Government was organised her officers
Were maltreated, bani&hcd, tarred and fea
thered their houses burned men were
shot, and mortally wounded regular sie
ges were laid the U. S. Mail was robbed
publie property was "appropriated," or
stolen and every evil thing wis done
that mad whiskey could suggest. The in
surgents deliberately shot dead the vener
able Major M'Farland, an officer in the
Revolutionary War, while he was bearing
flag of truce ! Gen. Washington, with
n army of 15,000 men, took the field,
and suppressed the rebellion, which cov
ered several months. Some of the guilty
leaders fled, but others were tried and con
victed, yet we believe no one was finally
executed. This, also, must.be charged
to the fanatics, Greely, Fremont & Co.,
even though they had not yet been born !
No matter for that charge it to them !
some fools will believe it '.
John Fries' Rebellion
Broke out in 1799, when some thirty men
in Lebigh and adjoining counties of I'cnn'a
were tried for repeated, forcible and suc
cessful resistance to U. S. officers enforcing
a direct tax. Fries was convicted of trea
son, and sentenced to be bung, but was
pardoned by John Adams, then Presi
dent. Others were condemned to milder
panishmcnts, which thty suffered. One
of the most active persons convicted, was
Jacob Eyerman,a German preacher. There
is do doubt but licccbcr, Kalloch, Chce
ver and other "political parsons" of our
day, were remotely the instigators of
Fries' and Eyerman's operations, even if
they did not appear in publie until thirty
years afterwards ! Lay it to lieechcr he
can stand it ! -
The Southampton Massacre.
In the Summer of 1331, in the Soutb
Etstern part of Virginia, a slave named
Sat Turner, with no aid from or commu
nication with the whites, planned and ex
ecuted an uprising which spread universal
and long-continued terror through all
Slavedom. He claimed (as Rrown does)
to act with Divine authority but, being
more sane than l!rown is, be planned with
greater sagacity, and hundreds or thou
sands of slaves flew to his standard, accor
ding to previous arrangements. His ca
reer was brief, but bloody, and we think
it cost 0 or 100 human lives.
Virgioia, soon after, held a Convention,
to amend her Constitution. Then, Eman
cipation was powerfully urged, and strong
er or more eloquent denunciations of Sla
very were never ottered than in that Con
vention. It failed by a small majority :
but 'Southampton' and 'Nat Turner' are
times that still make stoat hearts quail,
and bright checks blanch with fear. Be-
Jond all cavil, Nat Turner got bis idea of
the ''irrepressible conflict" from Seward's
Rochester speech, although the latter was
published 27 years afterwards ! How
ler, for political effect, we will allege that
it Wag Seward who cnutcd it !J

BY BESSf MO&POUK
Sir John was old, and Kritn, and eray;
The cares of pixty years be bora ;
The charm of youth had withered away
From his iron features long before.
In his dull old house of blackened stone,
W ith Ferrants quaint, aod tried, and few
For many a year be had ltred alone.
As tbo band, and the cold, and the heartless do.
There was plate on his sideboard plate of price;
His pouch bad ruddy gold at need ;
And twenty men might well suffice
The lands be held by power and deed.
He bad lired the world said mur-h too long,
H ad sold his heart f-r wealth and power ;
And tales, they thought, of bygone wrong.
Would be wailed, too late, at bis dying boor.

A bngQ black casket Tr stood.
Ko friend of hie they wer far and few
Had ever Men the opened lid ;
iS'ot even tbe tonjeue of a Mrraut knew
What thing of wraith the casket hid.
'Twan rnmorrd, that, at dead of night,
W hen abut and barred were window and door,
It opened to the old uan'a fight;
11 ut that waa rumor nothing more.
Eyes glanced upon It, quick and keen,
And mind with doubt Impatient awelled ;
What could these years of vyatery mean?
What could be the wealth the racket held f
Twas wondrous wealth so murh, knew all ;
For these bold words the coTering cruascd :
4Jeineniber,all, it' harm Detail,

rrhapft tbe red gold nertlrd there,

Or diamonds lit the nunlem sir,
Or rubies hlunhed like bridal. wine ;

Tbe half of a realm in Timour's day,
U iffht here, beyond temptation a thought,
lte hidden in safety: who could say I
glr John was dead. Tbe needy heirs
Followed cloae and thick bvbind bis bier,
Blf nding dingust at the teUionji prayers
With a proper sob and a decorous tear ;
And scarce the sound of teethed died,
Cluemg the vault for hia mouldering rest
When rung the cliinel opening wide
That strange, old, guarded treasure chest.
What Cnund they t Faces darkened and frowned,
And curses smothered under the breath,
As the heavy lid waa at last unbound,
And the heirs expectant looked beneath.
Hot an acre not a bamjttet more
Would all the wealth of the casket buy I
No wonder their faces this anger wore
That curled the lip aud flashed the eye.
What found they ? Top. and whip, and ball,
And kuife, and cord each veriest toy

From a Student in Euroiie No. 1.
Ueiiun, Oct. 1, 1859.
As yon see, I have arrived safely at my
destination, and on this the first day of!
"tbo month of the Bereand withered leaf"
hail from the banks of the Spree, in the
realms of his majesty the king of Prussia.
It would be folly to sttcmpt to give the
details of my voyage to Liverpool, or cv -
.. . . ..
, en 10 ocscriUo the principal incidents ot
I the passage, as it would occupy too much
of your paper, aud perhaps bo unintercst-
ing to your readers. The truth is, ac-
counts of voyages are so common, now-a-days,
that unless they arc tilled with amu
sing and startling iucidents, well-sandwiched,
they are apt to digest with diffi
culty. Besides, the various little occur
rences which excite an interest in the
minds of those subject to the monotonous
routine of ship-iife and very trifling
things serve to give variety can not,
when recounted, have the same effect up
on persons uninfluenced by the samo cir
cumstances. You will therefore excuse
me whcn 1 mcreIy ,hat we hii vcrJ
pl-snt passage, of eleven days and a
quarter, in the "City of Washington," in-
cIudiD6 the detention at Cork to land pas-
6cog--- Our accommodations werecvery-
ijf L 11 a
tniog mat couiu nave ocen asteu, ana our
cabin passengers, of whom there were
forty, comprising persons of six different
countries, soon became acquainted with
each other, and, before dropping anchor
in the Mersey, many friendships had been
formed, whose remembrance will always
be cherished with pleasure.
Once landed, our friends the Custom
House officers took tbe trouble to see that
our luggage was all right, for which, as
they were not at all overpowering in their
attentions, we felt truly grateful. Like
some of our Western "Injuns," their Grot
cry was for "baccab ;" but, on telling
tbcm I had none, tbey kindly passed my
trunk, barely looking into it. By a little
misunderstanding in regard to the time of
tbe Loudon trains, I bad several hours to
spend in Liverpool, and through the kind
ness of one of our passengers a Scotch
man, well acquainted with the place I was
enabled to see the principal objects of in
terest in the city. Among these are the
Docks, known all over the world for their
extent and solidity of construction the
Nelson Monument tho Exchange and
St. George's Hall, which, besides other
things, contains tbe finest lecture and mu
sic ball I havo ever seen,
In company with two young A men
cans, passengers by the City of Washing
ton, who were going to Paris to study for
tbe priesthood, I came from Liverpool to
London, by tbe Great Western Railway.
Our route lay through, or rather by, the
ancient town of Chester a very quaint-
looking place, well known in the Welch
border wars, and still surrounded by
wall in a cood state of preservation. At
Birmingham, we stopped for tho night.
For some miles before reaching it, the
road is literally lined with furnaces and
forges, whose glare lit np the sky, produ
cing the appearance of a grand conflagra
tion. From Birmingham, tho train took
us, next morning, to London a distance
of 130 miles in threo hours. This is
not an uncommon rate on English roads,
some of the express trains running at tbe
greater speed of fifty miles an bour : and
yet, the roads are so firmly cocstructcd,
and ably managed, that there are seldom
any accidents. Tho scenery, along tbe
whole route, is extremely beautiful. Ev
erywhere are neatly-trimmed hedges, beau
tiful clumps of trees of fantastic appear
ance, smothly-soddcd bauks, and graceful
cottages surrounded by the most elegant
shrubbery. Every foot of ground bears
the marks of cultivation. In some places,
farmers were still busy with their hay,
and we saw a number of women in the
fields, assisting to spread tbe grass out to
dry. One we observed engaged in the
more laborious occupation of scattering
Arrived in London, I scarcely knew bow
to employ tbe time of my stay to the best
advaotsge. In so large a city in com
parison with which, New York is only a
moderate sized town and where there
are so many monuments of interest to be
seen, one feels utterly confused, at first,
and knows not wbat direction to take. As
my stay was to be limited to a week, there
was no time to lose ; so, having taken
lodgings in tho very heart of the city, be
neath the blackened dome of St Paul's,
and armed myself with a "shilling Dandy
Book," I sallied forth to "sea tbe sights."
Miogling with tbo tide which flows along
Chcapside lowarili the river, I soon stood up-1 timely fate thumb-screws and other in
on I.nnrl.in IJrid.'c. where one can pet some ' strumcnts of torture weapons of every
ideaof the topoL-rai-hy of the city, and of its;
immensn finimlatiun. Over this bridge
thorn n.i. from davli.rht till ten o'clock
at night, three dense processions of vuhi -
cles of everv kind, two eoins the same
run ttm fnntamlL-s on cither side
urn n rrnwiW with ne.lcstrians that it is
almost impossible to cct alonj. From
ten o'clock till morning, the travel con
tinues, but of courso greatly diminished.
Standing on tho bridge, ono can sue the
Tower of London, the monument in com
memoration of the great lire of 1000, St.
Paul's, and several other prominent struc
tures, which serve as landmarks iu his
wanderings tlirounh the ereatcity. Ilav-
ids learned bv ioi'iirv the direction to
Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey,
Sio., I was prepared to be my own guide
to all tho places of most importauco.
One of the first which I visited, was
the Abbev. where repose the ashes of
' most of England's sovereigns, down to a
.i if i ..r
i recent penou, ana wuere me greater in
j the English poets and statesmen arc either
buried, or have statues and inscriptions to
their memory. A part of this structure
particularly the cloisters is of great age,
and contains toiubs of abbots dated as fur
buck as 1000. Within tho main edifice,
which is of later erection, and near the
entrance, is a tablet with the inscription,
"lleare lyes (expecting the Second coui
minge of our Savior Christ Jesus) the
body of Edinond Spencer, the prince of
poets in bis tymc, whose Divine Spirrit
needs noe othir witnesse then the works
which he left belli u do hitn.. He was
borne in London in tho yearo 1553, and
died in the yearo 159S." Near him are
tablets to .Milton, Southey, Dryden, Gay,
and other master spirits of poesy. In
these, I took more interest than in the
older and more costly tombs of the kings
and queens, though theso too are full uf
interest to one versed in English history.
In different parts of the Abbey, are the
tombs of statesmen and nobles of more or
less distinction Pitt, Fox, liurke, and a
whole catalogue of others. On one of the
walls, is a large tablet, containing, besides
an inscription to Major Andre, a repre
sentation in relief of his delivery up to
the Americans. Ou the floor of one of
the chapels, and apart from the other
great writers, is a tablet to the memory of
Addison, on which is inscribed :
Neer to 1hee chambers .here Ihe mighty reel,
Sinee tlteir loumlalioti, rauie a m.tiU-ritu-.t,

A latrer spirit, fir lucre w-li-ftne kliale.

Aud iee in peace Heat lb lured Uoutaue.
I might fill several sheets with accounts of
the various chapels, and the tombs of the
illustrious dead which they contain, but
forbear. The general appearance of the
interior of the building, is imposing in j
tho extreme, and well calculated to im-1
press one with a feeling of reverence for j
an aaererl a. rtlaca.
Leaving Westminster Abbey, I visited
the new Houses of Parliament, which are
li.hl. mamentr.J with mosaic work.
. - i , n i

ing the Abbey, a guide or hanger-on had )
button-holed me, and after going through
the Houses, he offered to take me to sec
the Funeral Car of tbe Duke of Welling
ton all this, of course, in the expectation
of reward. I went with him, and he led
me through St James' Park on different
sides of which ore Buckingham Palace
(the Queen's residence,) St. James' Pal
ace, and Whitehall to a low, frame
building, near the Horse Guards, where
tbe Car is kept with great care. It is
made from cannon taken in several bat
tles in which the Duko commanded, and
was cast in either four or six different cit
ies. Attached to it, are imitation horses,
ml ilioan. trtirpther with the ear. are cnv.
r,J .ith funeral dramnirs. so that it
stands to day just as it was used at the
burial of the Duke. In taking mo to this
place, (which is seldom seen by strangers,)
my guide walked so rapidly that I could
J fc 1
scarcely keep up with him, and by the
time wo reached it, I was in a complete
perspiration. He seemed to be a walker
in visiting St. i'aul's, ana wuiiociimD-
ing np into the ball, I made the acquain
tance of a young Knglishman, who after
wards proved of much service to mo, iu
showing mo through the city. St. Paul's
has been so often and so ably described,
that I will not attempt a description of it.
Tbe lickct-rcceiver in tbe dome, said that
some American ladies bad climbed clear
np to the ball the day before a feat that
reflects great credit upon them, seeing j
that there are several perpendicular lad
ders to ascend, and that tbe upper batch
way is not more than a foot aud a half in j
During the succeeding days, I visited
tbe Hospital and Observatory at Green
wich, 'Thames Tunnel, tbo Tower, New
gate, the Crystal Palace at Sydenham, ie.
Almost any one of these would require an
entire sheet for a satisfactory description.
The Tower is full of interest, but it calls
up so many momories of bloody deeds,
that it is almost painful to go through it.
Here are representations of sovereigns and
knights in the actual armor of the times to
which they belonged execution blocks,
on which manj a poor noble met Lis un
variety and age a long catalogue of
thincs which speak of centuries of barbar -
itv. Here are also the crown jewels, the
! prineipal interest of which, in the eyes of!
1 the person who shows them, appears to be
! the fact that thev are "valued at over
! three millions sterline." The "Painted
Ruoiu" in Grecnwieh Hospital, contains,
besides the beautiful frescoes which give
it its name, many pictures of naval con
test, and relics of distioguinhed comman
ders. The uniform worn by Nelson in
the battle of the Nile, i shown, and the
coat and waistcoat which he wore at Tra
falgar, where he received his death-wound.
Here are also the relics of Sir John Frank

j two sg, consisting of "a watcti, coins,

To a casual observer, there are few ev

in America. The people dress the fame,

own ; and were it not fur the different

FRUITS OF TYRAKMY.
Harper's Fury Kaid Public Opinion.
It is an old maxim, verified by a world's
history, that 'Oreniou icill make a vrite
man, mad." The annuls of Slavery iu the
United States, show for it almost eoutinued
and unnunished O'qretsion. Xo outrages
committed by the Slave Power, were ever
well rebuked by the Government. Were
the laws executed 'properly, thousands of
j the Slave party would ere this have "bit
I the dust' from a deadly shot or thrust, or
"daugled in the air" for treason. Any
amount of money is expended to catch a
slave any number of soldiers ordered to
enforce a slave law but nothing to restore
to liberty, and none to seenre freedom.
The recent lamentable afftir at Harper's
Ferry, is tbe natural result of tbe out
rages in Kansas, three years ago. It was
the reaction uf excited minds against the
dreadful cruelties and ravages committed
against their homes and families when tbey
wero peaceful settlers in the far-off West.
What a tremendous responsibility rests
upon those who supported and vindicated
those outrages, and especially upon the
sworn officers of tho government I An
article in the VhV.i. Xurth American cloaca
as follows :
"In truth, ihe whole of this bloody drama is
a seqnel of Ihe border outrages td which we

pertinent comments upon this affair and
its causes, and rebukes thoe who endeavor
to saddle the whole North with the respon

The truth is, if tbe political history of
the time must be explored fur the cause of
tbe Harper's Ferry insurrection, we must
go bttek to tbe Kansas-Nebraska bill. The
North aud South were pitted against each
other in tho Territory of Kansas, like a
pair of gladiators, and by that measure
some of the combatants naturally retained
the passions engendered by the fierce con
flicts precipitated by the "popular sovreigo
ty" policy. Drown is ono of these. All
accounts agree iu representing himasouce
a mild, religious man, but now partially 1
insane, and iu attributing bis insanity to
the fate which befell his family in Kansas.

But the Hiltimnre American, ther saying
that "it is difficult to decide whether the

a ludicrous tragedy, or a solemn farce,"
truly says :
