Brown returned to the States soon after his triumphal entry into Canada as a liberator, and was at Cleveland from the 20th to the 30th of March. He entered his name on the hotel-book, as John Brown, of Kansas, advertised two horses for sale at auction; and, at the time of the sale, stood in front of the auctioneer's stand, notifying all bidders that the title might be considered defective, since he had taken the horses with the slaves whom he liberated in Western

John Brown. Lawrence, Kansas, Sept. 7, 1856. Brown's plan as explained in 1858, reported by Richard Realf. John Brown stated that for twenty or thirty years the idea had possessed him like a passion of giving liberty to the slaves; that he made a journey to England, during which he made a tour upon the European continent, inspecting all fortifications, and especially all earth-work forts which he could find, with a view of applying the knowledge thus gained, with modifications and inventions of his own. to a mountain warfare in the United States.

These records, with other memorials of him, will be published, in due time, in a supplementary volume. The latest telegraphic news makes one correction necessary. I have spoken of Richard Realf as dead. I thought that he died a natural death on the ocean. It appears that he still lives in the body; but dead to honor, the voice of conscience, and the cries of the poor. He has chosen the part of Judas, and promises to play it wells I am indebted to several friends for valuable aid in the preparation of this volume--first, to every one whom I have mentioned in the notes, or text, or whose letters I have quoted; and to Dr. Thomas H.

After premising that all the young men of principle in Kansas, by the law of attraction or mental affinity, were the devoted friends and admirers of John Brown; and mentioning that, in November, 1857, Cook, Realf, and Kagi left the Territory for.Tabor, in Iowa, in his company; and recording his arrival in Lawrence under the name of Captain Morgan, on the 25th of June, 1858, he thus continues: A talk with John Brown and Kagi. On Sunday I held a very e hardest lesson to learn. I have waited for twenty years to accomplish my purpose.

Civil matters, too, found poetic voices: Bret Harte's The Copperhead and The Copperhead Convention, and Thomas Clarke's Sir Copp, stinging denunciations; F. W. Lander's Rhode Island to the South, full of prophetic challenge; Richard Realf's Io Triumphe, hopeful and resolute; W. A.
