Trial of the Harper’s Ferry Insurgents.

CHARLESTOWN, VA., Nov. 5.
Shields Green, one of the negro prisoners, was found guilty this morning. The first count, for treason, was abandoned upon objection taken by Mr. Sennott, that it was not proven that the prisoner was a free person, and therefore did not come under the statute which reads “any free person,” &c. His sentence was deferred. Copeland is now on trial, Mr. Sennott defending him. Tranquility is being restored.
