THE REVOLT IN JAMAICA Full Arrount of the Origin and Progress of the Insurrection. TERRIBLE ATROCITIES COMMITTED BY THE INSURGENTS. Prompt Suppression of the Revolt, and Summary Punishment of the leaders. (Correspondence of the New York Times.] Kingston, Jamaica, Monday, Nov. 6. The first disturbance of the peace occur red on the 7th ot October last, in the Parish of St. Thomas in the East, when a prisoner was rescued from the district jail by a mob. This was followed by a series of violent acts, and the next day the Governor, at Spaui9h Town, was called upon by the authorities to send troops for their protection, as the move ment was likely to become a formidable re bellion. These fears were well grounded. It was well known that ever since the begin ning of last year a set of men have been at work sowing the seeds of disaffection among the peasantry, using their prejudices, and their fancied as well as their actual wrongs,to excite them against the authorities. Asso ciations were formed in St. Thomas in the Last, under the direction of a malcontent named Grant, a saddler by trsde, a man of Considerable tact and influence as a local politician. Among the principal leaders was tbe pa-iorof a negro chapel at Stony Gat, named Paul Bogle, at whose place of wor ship the association was accustomed to hold their treasonable meetings. From every one who became a member of this secret society, an oath of 6ecrecy was extorted, and a com pliance with the combination, under pain of immediate death. It is generally believed that misguided people have been •'swearing in” their own class all round the country for several mouths past, and secretly taking the life of every one upon whom they bad the slightest suspicion of being incon stant. Men were seut for to attend their meetings at the chapel at Stony Gut, and were then and there required to take the oath that had been prepared for them, or told that they would be killed It they did not do so at once. . According to the stories of prisoners taken tl ‘ e rebellion, it would appear that the 19th 01 _ October had been fixed upon by the con spirators for a general uprising of the blacks, ana the indiscriminate slaughter of the white n j lon ' Toe rescue of a prisoner, already i* tii to >. .fastened the outbreak, precipt r! I ,,hostilities before the leaders had com pleted their airangements for a simultaneous •sing. The circumstances of this reserve as , follows: At the Court of Petty Ses at Morant Bay, October 7, a man r * e deohegan wusotdered under „ oy the magistrates for creating a dis fß«anCu ln tlle court room. The ofii s were, however, set upon by Paul about a hundred of his toiloweis, ® , w 'tti sticks, and Geohegan was ... “P RCe< l beyond their reach.

I can not do better than to copy here the graphic account ot this affair given by the Rector of Morant Bay, who at the time of the attack was in the court-bou9e consulting with tbe Vestry as to the best means of delence. Business was proceeded with as usual until about 4 o'clock, when the meeting was dis turbed. Mr. Bowen mentioned that as he came down from Colie, he had met parties of twenty or thirty men, who stated that they were recruit iug. I then told the Baron that there were 300 armed men assembled at the Baptist Chapel on the Blue Mountain road, where Buie officiated, and that they had dispersed for recruits, because they had heard that the Bath Volunteers had been seut for. Tbe Baron did not seem to think that there was any danger to be apprehend ed, but I urged him to get over the business as quickly a, possible. Shortly after this we heard '.he sound of a fife, and then a drum, and I rose up and said, now Baron, they are coiniug ! Several magistrates then rose and the Baron closed the books of tbe vestry ; and so concluded the meeting of the vestry. By this time the rebels had entered the square, where the volunteers had formed a Hue. They numbered some 500 or 600 peo ple, armed with guus, spikes, swords, cut lasses, sticks and stones. On their way to 'the Court-house, they released 9ome fifty one prisoners from the Morant Bay District prison, took the police station, and seized Use arms that were there, and armed them selves with stones from the prison yard, which prisoners had been engaged in break ing there. They steadily advanced on the volunteers, a man (whom I was not near enough to recogniz -,) being in front, danc ing some African wur-dance, and flourish ing a stick. The Barun, by advice, then read the Riot Act; but while that was going on the mob began to pepper the volunteers with stones and bottles and brick-bats. It was not umil then that the order was given to fire, as tbe Baron exercised the most ex traordinary forbearance toward the tumult. The volunteers fired ; numbers of the mob were wouuded and carried off by the rebels, while only three or lour dead bodies were all that were left upon the ground when the rebels had retreated. When the first volley had beeu fired, we all retreated within the court house, where wc barricaded ourselves for the time. We weie here assailed by hun dreds of stones and brick-bats that came showering from the wiudows. Tbe volun teers theu picked off from tbe windows men who appeared at intervals to shower in vol leys ot stones, and in this way they managed for a time to keep the rebels at a distance. Finding their men picked oft by the volun teers from the windows of the court-house, and fearing to approach by the front, tuey retreated from the square to plunder a stole for ammunition. At this juncture, a tew of the volunteers who had been secreted below, made their way to the top door for aumissior, and ftuding tbe square cleared, I was, as by inspiration, instiuetively induced to leave, commuting myself to the care of an over rating Providence. I left the court-house alone, and proceeded quietly and without any interruption down stairs and down the bill, until I got about half way to the road. "Here I was inter rupted by four or five people who made a rush to attack me I immediately folded my arms, and, looking them full in the face, saiu, “ How dare you strike an old man like me— a minister of the Gospel! "who has labored among you for so long a time—who has always been your friend—and done every thing for you?’ They seemed surprised at this unexpected address and p us and fora moment. One man, bolder than the rest, made a rush at me; he made a blow at me with his stick, which I warded off with my stick, and a second blow kuocked off my hat. A man and a woman then spraug upon me, crying, “You shall not strike him; uo, you shall not strike him,” and covered me so completely in their embrace that no blows could reach me which did not first fall upon them. I was then lifted into the buggy standing at the foot of tbe hill, and was driven off in great haste to the rectory. My son Arthur was following me, and was just getting into the buggy with me, when he was beaten and left for dead upon the ground. Millie Frazer, hearing that he had been killed, went in search of the body; finding that he was still breathing, begged the man who was standing over him not to strike him again ; but even this entreaty was disregarded, for he gave another heavy blow across the face, which drove my son’s eye from its socket, and left him ! He was now dead, and this faithful woman pulled some bushes and covered bis face, to conceal tbe horrible disfigurement and to keep away the flies. After dusk, Millie Frazer, Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Darby assisted in bringing the body to the Mission-hoase at Highbury, where I and my family had taken refuge. Oa the morning of the outbreak, some of the rebels told my coachman that they would have my bead cut off before night; but the poor fellow, with an amount of forethought hardly to be expected, said: “No! no! you must not do that; massa owe me lot of money, and if you kiU him I’ll not get a quattie; you must not do that.” “Oh! well,” replied the rebels, “if that’s so we won’t touch him.” This boy knew what was logic for the negroes, aad although I did not owe him a shilling, I have no doubt but that in terposition of his did me a service. On the Wednesday evening, while we were at the Wesleyan Mission House, two men walked in at the Rectory gate, where they were met by an old woman who was standing at tbe gate. She asked them what they were going to do; to which they re plied: “To burn the house, to be sure.” “No, you don't,” she replied, stopping the way. “Dis do Parson house; you shan’t do it; if it were not for de Parson, ’we would hab been beggar to-day.” I cannot, in a single lelter, trace tbe iu surreciion through tbe different towus and : settlements ot the island. A perfect reign ofterrpi prevailed everywhere. The most dreadlui rumors were everywhere prevalent. The work of pluuder and murder went on for days, almost without hindrance, for there was no concert of action among the whites, nnd it was impossible for tbe inhabitants of one village to communicate with those of another, the roads being everywhere held and guarded by tbe insurgents. But on tbe 12th, tbe troops sent for by the Baron ar rived from Spanish Town at Morant Bay. Immediate measures were taken to put down tbe insurgents. From Morant Bay the troops were march ed toward the interior, where tbe rebel forces were assembled. Os course they bad no regular organization, nothing that could be called un army; but throughout the parish they had established camps, where they gathered stores of provisions plundered from the whites. Their war-cry was death to the white man, aud the atrocities they practiced upon the defenceless citizens were beyond all description. The presence of the'm these mirages, and seemed to quell the spir it of lb* rebels. The first Insurgent* taken prisoners were tried and Imniciilaiely hung. 1 hear summary measures had ilia effect to induce great uumlmra to throw away their arum aud am render themselves, at (he same Mum asking for protection against tha mill «ry and their own Blends.

This man, finding himself in danger of arrest, gave himself up to the military authorities, lie was imme diately placed in eloee confinement, tu which his only solace was singing psalms and pray ing. On the 20th he waS taken to Morant Bay, and on the following day he was put on tiial. He looked pale and emaciated, but was not wanting in coolness and delibera tion. He took notes during bis trial. The court was dissolved at 530 o'clock, and separated williout passing sentence. On his removal from the court the prisoner was taken to the police station, where he remain ed until justice claimed him as her own.— The following day being Sunday, he passed the entire Sabbath reading from the Bible.— Late in the day preceding bis execution, I saw him pale and thin, and as if dreaming, although awake. A fixed, earnest, settled stare was on his countenance : a stare evi dently bespeaking mental torture, and a heart torn with remorse the most acute. his last moments. He was marched under a strong guard of the Sixth lioyal Regiment to the place of i execution. With a firm step he mounted 1 the ladder placed beneath the centre arch of j the burnt court-house, the rope hanging ! from the same, and stood on the barrel pre pared as a trap-board. Standing thereon, lie gazed beneath him on the loyal hearts as sembled, as well as the prisoners paraded to witness the doom lie so justly merited, and on eighteen of his brothers in crime, who were hanging below. On his arms anil legs being held to he pinioned, he handed his spectacles to a sailor of the Wolvorine. The Provost-Marshal then uttered the words “sentenced to be hanged the order was given, “pull away.” and the traitor was launched into eternity. He struggled fully fifteen minutes. A PLOT TO BURN KISOSTON. Among the treasonable documents recent ly captured by tbe authorities, in their search since the outbreak in St. Thomas in the East, is a plan of Kingston, said to have been prepared under the direction of Geu. Larno the, the Haytien refugee. The plan presents the point at which the city was to be fired—the points to which it was expected the authorities would repair— tbe points at which the massacre was to commence from, and tbe points at which posts were to be stationed, so as to cut off the flight of those who escaped to the roads leading out of the city. The conspirators were to await the arrival of the troops at the scene of conflagration, and then on a given signal were to seize the camp, the barracks, the arsenal and the batteries ; there was to have followed a geneial massacre in every si reel from both ends, every house being entered and searched. THE PLAN FOR A GENERAL RISING. From all that can be gathered, it appears that the outbreak at Morant Bay was prema ture. It was to have commenced on Christ mas eve, and was to have been general throughout the island. In support of this, it is strange that a verification of this informa tion should have been elicited from a prison er in the General PenitenGarv. A man named Antoi y. who was one of the five prisoners brougut from ‘‘Mouckla..d-, and sentenced to seven years in the General Peniten tiary, being overheard using seditious language, was sent to camp with a prisoner belonging to this city, and named Elbert Bayley, who carried on the seditious conversation with Anthony. A part of the conversation of Anthony was to the follow ing effect: “We black people never make ; anything go straight. We break out too soon ; we were to have come to town some time about races or Christmas.” Such was the comprehensive plan which had been matured for anew revolution and anew massacre of the whites. But it is in structive to note that the plot originated in the resentment of a white man, who was not only a respected citizen, but a prominent member of the Assembly. Had tljer.e been no such tampering with their loyalty, the black population ot' the island would proba bly have remained contented and quiet. They are, for the most part, a loyal, indus trious, simple-hearted race, who only require just treatment, wise and moderate control, and proper encouragement, to make them a most useful class of citizens. Once roused by the arts of designing men, and the old halt-extinguished fires of barbarism once more enkindled into full flame in their hearts, they become savages, demons ; but even then are they not as much sinned against as sinning ? The island is now comparatively tranquil again; but we cannot but feel that we are sleeping upon a volcano, which at any mo ment may break forth, and overwhelm us with fearful ruin. FROM HILTON HEAD.
