The papers for the last week have been filled with the proceedings,
and accounts of the insurrection at Harper's Ferry, Virginia.
The trial of the insurgents is now progressing, at Charleston, Va., and
are reported in full by the Telegraph. The last report is that
a jury was empannelled, and the preliminary questions being argued before Court.
The insurgents have all been arrested -- Captain Cook was arrested in
the mountains near Chambersburg, and taken to Virginia on Thursday.
Cook is a brother of Mrs. Gov.. Willard --
all her friends, and those of the Governor, sympathize with them in the
disgrace brought on them by their relative. The Governor, Joseph
E. McDonald, and Hon. D. W.
Vorhees have gone on to see that justice is done Cook -- that is all any
one could ask for a man engaged in such business, with such associates.
