Tr _l of Stevens. —Aaron Dwight Stevens, the harper's Ferry insurrectionist, is to be tried sometime during tbe winter —perhaps during the present month of January—by the Virginia State authorities, at Charlestown, and not by the United States authorities, as at first proposed. The regular term of the Jefferson Circuit Court is held in May, but a bill is before the Legisla ture to authorize a special session for this pur pose. This change in relation to Stevens' trial lias probably been made in consequeuce of the appointment of Senator Mason's Congressional Investigation Committee, who, it has been in timated, will summon Dr. Howe, Wendell Phil lips, and lither Northern Abolitionists before them as witnesses. Stevens was the right band man of Old Brown, and filled an important post in his command.— He acted as his military instructor, in place of Col. Forbes, and taught him the use of Sharp's rifle. His age is but 28, and he is a native ot Norwich, Conn. He is a large, muscular man,...

Stamtton Spdator* VA. TUESDAY, JANUARY 31, 1860. State of the Country. f Of all the letters from distinguished men which i the present political excitement has called forth, J we have read none which seems to us to meet . the case at all points so satisfactorily as the one < addressed by the Rev. Dr. Breckinridge, of Ken- i tucky, to his nephew, the Vice President of the ' United States. Dr. Breckenridge declares that the settled and deliberate conviction of Kentucky , is that the dissolution of the Union is no remedy for anything whatever, but that it is itself the direst of all calamities. Kentucky has been ex posed, along a frontier of seven hundred miles, to greater evils and losses than all the slave States which have no free frontier put together; yet she has never entertained a single thought of .ecession. It is Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky and Missouri that have borne all the losses and annoyance, and are to bear all the impending peril. To these States, therefore, the de...
