Death of Robert Btephenaon, the Eminent Knglneeri [From the London l'linee, Oct. 13.] The death of Stephenson comes with startling rapidity upon tliat of Brunei. Both men of rare genius, and both occupying a sort of double throne at the hand of tnelr pro feasion, they have gono to their rest together, and their rivalry has ceased Distinguished sons of distinguished fathers, the two men who tu these latter years have done xpost to perfect the art of travci, and in this way to cultivate social intercourse, multiply wealth and advance Civilization, have boon struck down at one Teh swoop in all the maturity of their power Mr Hteph-naon's health had been delicate for about two years, and he complained of failing strength Just before his lust journey to Norway. In Norway lie became very unwell; his liver was so much uikctcd thai he hurried home, and when he arrived at Inwestoft he was so weak that he Ltd to be carried from his yacht to the railway, and thence to his residence in Gloucester square, where his malady grew so rapidly as to leave from the Urst but faint hopes of bis recovery. He had not strength enough to resist the disease, and he gradually sunk until at length he expired yesterday morning If his loss will be felt severely in his profession, it will be stHI more poignantly felt in ins large circle of friends and acquaintances, for he was as good as be was great, and the man was even more to be admired than the engineer. His benevolence was unbounded, and every year he expended thousands in doing good unseen His chief care in this way was for tho children of old friends w ho had been kind to him in early life, sending them to the best schools and providing for them with characteristic generosity. His own pupils regarded him with a sort of worship, and tho number of men belonging to the Stephen ou school who have taken very high rank In their peculiar walk shows how successful he was in his system of training, and how strong was the force of his example. The feeling of his friends and associates was not less warm. A man of the soundest judgment and the strictest probity, with u noble heart and most genial manner,lie won tnecoufldi nee of all who knew him, and perhaps in all Loudon there were not more plea sant social gatherings* than those which were to be found in his house in Gloucester square, I." himself being the lifeof the party. Without a si>ark of professional jealousy in h s own nature, he was liked by ail his follow engineers, if they did not know him sufficiently to bear him alloction. and we do not believe that even those who Iwd the most reason to wish him out of the way, such as the promoters of the Suez Canal, which he strenuously opposed, ever bore him any ill will. He boa passed uwav, if not very full of y are, yet very fid I of honors?tho creator of public works, a beuofactor of his race, the idol of his friends. The Wlnr Crop of France, [baris (Oct. 3) correspondence of the London New=.] i have Deen favored with the sight of a commercial letter from the south of Frauce, which gives the following account of the vintage ? Nearly three-quarters of the wine crop is now got in, and although the greater part of the new wine is yet iu the must, we are in u position to form a tolerably accural-estimated the new vintage, both us to quantity -nud quality. In the early spring great hopes were entertained" of an extraordinary year. The quantity of fruit was nt least as great .is iu 1S5S. But the white frosts in the spring, old turn in somo places, and, more than all, a few intensely hot days days in July which dried up a very considerable quantity of grapes, reduced the crop to less than hall an average one. On the other hand, the quality of the new wines is far superiorto auything we have seen of late years, and will,vie with that of 1347 The red wines will have much body, strength and color. The white wines also promise well, but they arc more backward than the others, and therefore wears not able to speak with equal confidence about them. The wines of 1S6H (the current year) were no eagerly bought up that the prices have been ri.-ing for some {ime past. The crops of many, vineyards were purchased on the ground by anticipation. At the present momont the new wines are selling for thre-'- or lour times the price which thqy fetched in October last year, and wo doubt whether tb*upward movement has vet seen its highest, for, in consequence ortlie excelleut quality of the wines, scarcely ary are sold for distilling. Opening of the Opera In Paris. [Pans (Oct. 2) Correspondence of I/On<lon Pout.] The Italian Opera opened for the Season last night with Verdi's '? Traviata." Madam*1 l'enco was the Violelta; Ciardonl, Alfredo; and Orazinni, Gcrmond: the remaining characters were respectably filled by the ordinary working artitlts of the company. # Madame l'enco was greeted most warmly on her appearance before a crowded audience, and Gardoui was received with encouraging salutations. Graziani. whom we may now call an " old fa Torite," was also heartliy congratulated on his appearance. Madame FVnco's read'ng of ?? fa Trariat.i" was precisely a repitition of her last year's performance. She contrives to make it as little painful as possible. She sang throughout as an accomplished artist who knows her rule thoroughly, and with a confidence which a fine and never fading voice ensures. Gardoni was called upon to fill a part made familiar to the Parisian? by Mario. Such an accident, I need scarcely remark, was somewhat discouraging, lor Mario is not only a great >inger. but there is a charm iu the quality of his voice which enables him t<? give a color and nmewr I to the music he sings which rornuin in the mind and ear of ! the audience, and is sure to be the more vividly remembered when the same music is sung by another tenor. 1 Gardoni last night scarcely did justice to himself. He | seeme I to be conscious of the d.lllctilties Is- had to contend with, anl In addition he was not familiar with his ' audience. Nevertheless, Ms ggod taste and careful style I were perceptible throughout, and he certainly merited the applause he received. Graziani was perfectly at home, and his fine voico seemed to animate the audience to tl ,? tin r warmly expressed satisfaction of the evening M. Calzado, the manager, has this year issued a very generous programme. He has availed himself of all the known talent he could command, and permitted one or two unknown singers to try their fortune, among whom is a tenor, Morinl?an assumed nam", by the way. Madame Borglii Mamo returns this year to the Italian Opera, as well as Alhoni. Mario has deserted us, thejr say, for ever; but at the end of the season Tatnherllk condescends to sing to us for a few nights, for -which he is to be paid 40.090 francs. Badtali and Zucbini (batri) are to <!o the comic business, so that with less-r stars we get a very fair company. Giuglini was to have favored us, but there was su;ne difficulty about the "terms." which has greatly disappointed the patrons of Italian Opera in Paris. One might have expected, perhaps, some new prime domae and Imuri from Italy, as that nursery of singing birds is now nlmnst broken up on account of political troubles. In Italy, the drama outside the theatre walls luia j usurjiod Apollo's throne. It is remarkable that the ' market is not bettor supplied when one considers the large sums paid to singers. M. Calzado's company, as far as I cau calculate, is costing liim this year something like 400,(XXH\ Bj* the way, one may compliment him on the improvement of the chorus this season. Our old friend Bonetti is again in the orchestra, which, during the last two years, he ha? so able conducted. How we lire to get all the op ms promised in th" programme I am unable to conceive. They are?"II Klauto Magiro" and "I/- Nozzo" of Mozart: tic "Crociata"' of Meyerbeer: the-'Regina ite Golconda" and "Fnrioso" of Donizetti, with the following of tb" general repertoire:? "II Barbiere'' "h'ltallana in Algicrt," ".Seniiramide," I "Matdde ifi Bhahron." -'Otello,'' "Cn Gurioso Aucidcntc." 1 "Norma,"' "I Puritan!," "Cupuli tti e Monti-cclii," "Anna Boleca," "Lucia di Laromermoor," "Poiiuto," "Giuramento." "la Tractate," "II Trovatorn," "Rlgo!et:>i," "Krnanl," "Salfo." "Marta,' "II Matrimonio Segieto,'' "Don Giovanni." The London Money Market.

Tho following is a portion of the correspondence and papers found on old John Drown after bis capture at Harper's Ferry. It may help to elucidate the mystery that at present overhangs and enshrouds the affair, and possibly he Die means of aiding tlio Investigations and bringing to justice the dastardly miscreants wbo h?vo been engaged in assisting and abetting this wild and fanatical scheme, and also of showing the complicity of men occupying respectable positions in society in the North and West. Tt is clear, from the correspondence, which dates hack for many months, that the objects of this movement were well and extensively known throughout the North. The names used by the parties engaged to designate the movement are in most instances fictitious. Sometimes it is characterized "Mining operations," then ''Missionary work," "Stock operations;'" then again as "Kansas work,"' &c. But the correspondence below speaks for itself.

C. Stephens, w ho was taOen with " Old Man Brown" and conveyed to Cliarlestown jail dangerously not likely to live this day out. He was much worse last evening and supposed to be dying, and the physician was summoned tn great haste. In the morning lie was more comfortable, but rapidly failing. The feeling that the attack upon Harper's Ferry was Uie flrst of a widespread conspiracy is gaining ground here. Circumstances have transpired tending to show that this morcmeut was by no means isolated?that attacks were expected to have been made simultaneously at numerous other points. There is even a suspicion, how well founded it is impossible to tell, that the recent outrages at Brownsville, Texas, were instigated at least by the abolitionists. The following memoranda were found yesterday, written upon ivory tablets, in the pockets Of Kagi, who was shot in the Shenandoah river on the retreat from the ritle factory:?

Thoi>?pay,?Kec'd letter from Merriam dated Baltimore. Friday.?Sent telegram to Merriam at liulnmure. Saturday.?[Blank. ] The Merriam referred to in the m< morapda is supposed to be a ;nan who stopped at the Wager House on Saturday last, bringing a heavy tiunk, which was taken olf in a wagon by one of Brown's sons and a negro man. Before leaving the hotel he registered his name ?' F. G. Merriam, Massachusetts," and took dinner. He then procured [hi per and wrote a large number of letters, taking peculiar puins to prevent any one from seeing what he had written. It is supposed that bo took some part in the doings of fe'tindSV night, and escaped in company With Cook and his party. His taeo was very peculiarly ; marked with blotches, and a man answering his descrip lion exactly is known to have registered the name of "J. ' Henry" at Chambersburg. It is conjectured that this , man had charge of the procuring of the supplies of arms, 1 ammunition, Ac , for the "provisional artny." Lati evening Mr. Wm. McDanicI, who resides about J three quarters of a mile above the village, on the bank 01 the Potomac, picked up by the side of a fence in tho ra j vine a woman's dress, hoop .skirt, bonnet and shawl, I which he found rolled in a bundle. The dress had evi dently been torn off in great haste, and there was a large s)M>t of blood on the skirt. It is supposed to have been used as a disguise by the insurgents or .some ol' thuir spies. A very tall woman had l?<en noticed in tho early evening passing through tho upper part of the villago, and walking rapidly. The examination trial, previous to indictment, of Brown and bis fellow prisoners will commence on Tuesday, and if a separate triul be granted to each, as will probably bo the cose if applied for. the indictment will not be ended before tho close of the week. It is stnfed that the prisoners are assured of having every possible legul advantage, und the host counsel In the commonwealth assigned for tln*r defence in case they do not obtain counsel from the North. Old Biown lies written letters to several eminent legal gentlemen at 1 he North, among others to Gov. Chase, of Ohio. Kacli of the prisoners will probably be tried separately, aud on the trial of the negroes the testimony of negro witnesses will be received. Gov. Wise says these men must have a [terfectly luir trial, for the sake of the honor of Old Virginia. If counsel come from the North to defend the prisoners they will l>e treated with courtesy and respect, unless they attempt to ring in views on the subject of slavery such us are never toloratrd in this latitude. Tho empaunelling ot a jury for the Una! trial wiil probably occupy a week, so that the Until trial will not fairly be begun hi le.-s tliun a fortnight. A large bundle of letters, addressed lo Charles 1'. Tldd, one of the dead filUbustcrs, was found In a trunk at the house of Captain Cook's mother-in-law. Among them wore several from his mother, who, it appears, lives witu a second husband at or m ar Springduie, Iowa, breathing the most tender and affectionate spirit, and praying Il"uven to bless and protect her "dear child, Charles," through a!' the dangers which ho was about to pass, and bogging him if ho unharmed to return at unci to his home. All the letters are written in the Quaker style of "tbecing and thouing," and ore pervaded with a deeply religious torn-.

INDIGNATION AGAINST GOVKUNOlt WISE. The Harper's Furry people ure iudiguant at tho languago employed by Governor Wise in censuring them for allowing tho.armory to bo taken, and think the papers havo not given them proper credit for their efforts to repel tho invaders. Tho citizens, they say, did all that was donedrove Brown's party into tho engine house, and kept them there, and not a filibuster was killed, wounded or captured by the uniformed militia, to whom all tho credit bos been given by the newspapers. They talk of holding a meeting to vindicate the honor of the town. A NEGRESS AliHESTED AND EXAMINED. Betsey l'i uts, u negroes, who lived at Bolivar, a mile above the Fi rry, was arrested and examined to-day be. fore Justice Turk, on suspicion of having had coinuiuuication with the conspirators. It seems she weal to sec her mother, somewhere in XJillsboro'county, betbre tho outbreak, and staid Inst night in Loudon county, where she told a white woman that she had seen (lie negro Spears several times at Cook's house, was well acquainted with Cook, who owned a rifie that would fire twentv shots,and had heard him say that if he could gel his wife aud child to New York, he would turn Harper's Ferry upside down. She acknowledged at tho examination having told the woman these thiugs, but said tliey were all lies. She was let oil easy. Habpjcr's Fkkbt, Oct. 23, Va., 1859. The people of this village were thrown iuto considerable excitement this pleasant Sabbath morning, by the arrival of two horsemen from Maryland, who were escorted across the bridge by Capt. Isaac Boteler, a planter residing on the Maryland side, ubout eight or nine miles from here. They proved to be Capt. Charles Campbell uad Lieut. M. W. Hanser, of Chambersburg, Fa., who arrived with intelligence of the capture of a man, supposed to be Capt. Cook, nt Carlisle, Fa. They had pursued the man from the house occupied by Cook's wife, at Chambersburg, wliorc he left a blanket and a revolving pistol,being hard pressed. The blanket was marked "A. H.," und the man said his name was A. II..zlitt. Campbell and Hanser followed the fugitive from Cliutiibersburg all the way up the Cumberland valley, and finally overtook him in Carlisle. Some railroad men first went up to arrest him, but be thrcatcued tbein with a revolver, and they left; when Mr. Hanser catne up behind, clapped him on the hack, utid said, "Is your name Cookl'" "No," was the reply. "You are my prisoner," said Hanser. The man instantly thrust bis hand into his pocket, as if to draw a pistol, but at tills Instant Captain Campbell came up and seized him by tho arms. The man answers to the description oi Captain Cook very closely, but the wife of Cook says she does not know him. Tho Chambersburg men represent the feeling in Chambersburg, and all that region as being one of ontiio aud almost unanimous reprobation of the conduct of these insurgents. Men were out in all directions searching for Cook. They say that a number of people, both while and black, in ana around Chambersburg. are clearly implicated in the movement, and aro urgent lo have the general government order their arrest Nome of the abolitionists who had not been let into the scsret ot this outrage arc now among the loudest beard in denunciation. The Chambersburg men, in company with Mr. Price, the mail agent, immediately proceeded to Cburlcstown by private conveyance, and bad an Interview with the pri. sisters there confined. Old Brown refused to hold any communication w ith them, but asked Mr. Price to call on the poyuiaster of the armory on his return, and ask him to send the $400 in his hands belonging to him (Brown), staling that lie wonted to send money to his wife, and to procure comforts, Ac., for himself and men In prison. Stephens, who was not expected to live yesterday, was much easier, but not able to converse. The others wore somewhat more communicative. They said ilazlitt was certainly killed in the fight hero a:el thrown oil' the Potomac bridge, as lies once been reported, and that Hazlitt was four iucbcs taller than Cook. Coppce says he had a brother in tho fight, an older man than himself, but what became of hiiu he did not know. The men readily recognized the two negroes, who had frequently been seen at Chambersburg, but Copjiee was a stranger to them. A communication will be sent from here by tho 1:20 A. M. train tomorrow morning, to Governor Wise, for a requisition on the Covernor of Pennsylvania to bring the prisoner to Charlcstown. He is now confined in Carlisle An urgent request en me from the Maryland side this afternoon, asking for arms for a patrol about to be raised there. Companies have been organized to-duy at this place, Bolivar, and Camp HilL Special despatches have been sent to Washington as well as to Governor Wise. There are abundance of armed men here, and no reason to fear ns to the result of any demonstration from tho friends of the miscreants, should one be attempted. It is reported that there has been a large gathering of abolitionists in and around Cliambersburg, and that Fred, i onglass. the black abolttitiouist, has been among them. Among the papers in Stephen's portemounaic, given by him In Ihc landlord of the Wager House, was the follow - ing,"which tt is supposed win intended to serve as a sort of voucher lor iiia soundness on the "gooso question" In cuse of his arrest in a slave State:? A copy of the neolutiun adopted by the citizens of Tabor, Feb. 7, ISM:? B??oive<i, That ?- Ude we sympathise with the oppressed and will do all that we conscleaUoiisly can to help them In their ellnrts few ftcedom. nevertheless we have no sympathy with thoea who go to since States to entice 11 w ii y slaves iiudtake property i r lite when necessary to sttaiu that end. J 8. SMf rll, Secretary of said meeting. Tibob, Feb. P. 1PM. When Stephen? was brought into the hotel wounded, lie professed to be sorry for the mischief ho bad done, and when reproached by tho landlord's sister, he usked her to forgive him. This lady?Hiss Christine Fouke? deserves great credit lor the coolness and courage she displayed throughout the affair. She brought in the body of lir. Beckham, which hud been left lying for aomo hours en the platform, exposed to the guerillas' guns, and site exerted herself to the utmost to protect the prisonors in the botoi. who were threatened by tho infuriated citizens alter the murder of Beckham. GOV. WIISE'S RETURN FROM HARPER'S FERRY?HIS SPEECH IN RICHMOND. [From the Richmond Whig, (let. 22.] Gov. lb ?ry A. Wise returned from Harper's Ferry yesterday , in lhi- t en o'clock train from Acjuia creek, and was received at the depot on I'.road street by Company K, Cayt. Car;,, and a large concourse or citlaong. He was conducted to a can luge, and thus escorted to the Governor's mansion, Company F aeilug as an escort. Tho multitude followed the cortege until it approached the City Hall, when a general rush was made towards tho Governor's grounds. The j oriico of tho house and the enclosure in front were soon filled with citizens eager to hear a speech from his Excellency. Presently tho Governor and his escort entered, and room being made for them, tho Governor alighted from the carriage, entered his dwelling, and exchanged brief greetings with members of his family. He then came forward, and was received with arms presented by Company F, the armory bund playing tho "Star Spangled Banner." At tho conclusion of tbeso ceremonies tho Governor proceeded to address the military and the a.-seiiibled crowd of civilians. He spokn forty-Ave minutes, and was several times Interrupted with loud applause and cheering. Wo annex a report of his remarks, which is unavoidably condensed and imperfect. Cai-r.
