DAKE THEY DO IT 1 As a cotemporary truly remarks, this busi ness or imputing to prominent Republicans complicity in Old Brown's mad raid at Har per's Ferry has been carried quite too far to be allowed to drop where it is. If the charges made against Messrs. Seward, Hale, Giddings and others, of having guilty knowledge of Old Urown's plot to incite a slave insurrec tion, thus involving them in treason against the United States, be true, why don't those who make them have the guilty parties indict ed, arrested and tried ? If the editors of the Lecompton papers are honest in what they eay, and are half as good, peace-loving, law abiding, Union-saving citizens as they would have us believe, how can they evade the re sponsibility of doing so? Gentlemen, we want to see you "come up to the scratch" in this matter. Don't dodge behind Gov. Wise and try to get up a question of jurisdiction and the duty of surrend...

All, no doubt, remember that, when the Ilarper's Ferry Insurrection excitement began, there was published an anonymous letter, re ceived in the latter part of August by Gov. Floyd, the Secretary ot War, setting forth-that the writer had discovered a secret organiza tion, having for its object the liberation of slaves at the South, by an insurrection; that "John Brown, late of Kansas," was the lead er; that one of his accomplices was "in an ar mory in Maryland;" that the rendezvous of the conspirators was in the mountains of Yir ginia; named Harper's Ferry as the place where they would make the first demonstra tion ; and that "the blow would be struck in a few weeks ;" remarking, in conclusion, that, though he dare not sign his name to it, the writer trusted the warning would not be disre garded on that account.

The St. Louis Fvening Xews publishes a long article giving the views of Mr. Bates" on the Slavery question. The News, though it does not speak "by authority," says the opinions it attributes to Mr. Bates are made np of his pub lic and private record. As Mr. Bates is like- ly to be prominent among the opposition can didates for the .Presidency, the article has at tracted considerable atteution. lhe main points it sets forth are as follows : Mr. Bates does not believe that African sla very is a beneficial institution, either in a so cial, political, or religious sense. Not in a political sense, because it is productive of dis cords between nations that tolerate it and na tions that do not, and because it is liable to panics, and has often ended in bloody revolu tions.
