A. "John Brown" and slavery • niee'ting was
held in -Lawrente last evening, December. loth'.
After some oldie speakers bad lauded Brown
as ttseconli Jelius;and one of theni alluded to
the Pottowattamie massacre, which has been
laid tit John's door, Mr. Stevens said, he did not
believe John Brown had any. thing, to do with
It;' but there was a gentleman present who
could. testify to that fact, "Name -him"
"naive him," Several cried out:
,"It is Captain
Walker," (noW.Shertff of Douglass .county,•anti
one.of the braveit of the Fiee-State leaders.)
Captain" Walker arose and said, "Gentlemen,
there is no use in keeping back the truth or
pertterting.facti.' John Brown told me himself
that he was present at the murder of those:men
on Pottawatamie Creek.:"- This startled like a
thunderclap the defenders . of Brown. 'He, pro
ceeded am ready, to take an.orith that John
Brown, made such a statement to me. I know
more-about this matter than I can state, es
pecially.as it .would implicate, as actors•in that
murder, some yersons noWin this room. John
.Brown. had those men in' his power, and' he
could have kept,them prisoners. ...For, himself,
he never Could justify "taking a man prisoner
and then deliberatety 'cutting his throat. Ohl
Titus., whom he took 'prisoner, had, threatened
to' cut his throat; had insulted his wife, and
threatened her life; yet he never felt justified in
taking his life when his' Vrisoners." -•
Governor . Charles-Robinson also said' that. he
belieVed John Brown had ecknoWledged to him
he was preient and 'approved of the.killine of
those men on Pottawatamie creek. He had
not and could not justify the excesses commit-,
ted by Free Stato men after they had the civil
power in their hands. ' •
. Dr. Adir a , nephew 'of John, Brown-, 'was
questioned in reference to John Brown's eon
mectlen.with the Pottawatomie massacre". He
said John Brown told' him he "was present at
the killing of those men, But there are rialli
sting circumstances connected with it.
I may add that thereis no question whatev
er, from what I have heard from pers.ons who
.know the facts, that John Brown'planned and
carried out that massacre„- The 'facts come.
