NEW YORK, October 26.
Tbe Ttmtt contains a very thorough scien
tific description of the trial trip of the Grtat
EtuUm, from a special correspondent, whom
the Timet describes as an Ainorican engineer,
who has taken a professional Interest in tin
The general conclusion the writer stews to
have attained is that while the expectations of
the public, unduly wrought np by incompetent
authorities, ere disappointed, those of the pro
jectors are abundantly verified. , Thus, while
tne vessel can not be advantageously employed
for a mere trans-Atlantic service, it is perfectly
adapted to tbo long Australian voyage for
which it was designed. It cannot attain a
speed of thirty miles an hour, but) it can ac
complish a rate of fifteen miles. It eon not
make a trip from Liverpool to New York in
fire dajn, but it can in ton. It doss not
wholly obviate the dixeomfortsof a sea voyage;
it does not go through the waves instead of
over them, but it does pitch and roll so slightly
as to oause little serious distress to the passen
gers. Other points, of interest aredaveloped
by the trial ; the security of the vessel b im
perfect; the bulkheads are neither fire-tight
nor water-tight; important valves are not as
they should bo, automatio j the apparatus for
super-heating steam seems only to be available
at the cost of great peril ; the maohlnery is
very far from having that completeness and
that proportion people have been led to antici
pate ; tbe boilers are Inadequate to furnish the
power required by the engines ; there is a want
of hermony in the working of the screw and
side wheel engines, and the donkey engines
are by no means as serviceable as certain
American Inventions of the same kind, and
the machinery for raising and handling tho
anchors is likewise of an indifferent vHue. On
tho other hand, the vessel Is under perfect con
trol of the helm, with no greater amount of
force than is required by a first-olats frigate.
The consumption of ooal Is moderate, and the
engines work with none of the stiffness cf new
machinery. Tbe opinion formed by the writer
is thus, upon the whole, not unfavorable to its
claims. Indeed, he doss not hosltnte to pro
nounce it a success. Tbe same correspondent
also gives the gratifying Intelligence that the
American trip o( tbe Qrmt Eattern Is not to be
deferred until Spring. The Wreotors have de
termined to dispatoh her on or very shortly after
November 1. -,. , , ... .

CHARLESTON, VA., October 26.
' Circuit Court, Jodge Parker oh the benoh'.
Court met at ten o'clock. The Grand Jury was
called and retired to resume the examination
of witnesses. Tho,Court took a recess, await
ing tbe return ot the Grand Jury. '
M. Johnson, United States Marshal; of
Cleveland, Ohio, arrived this morning and
visited the prisoners, lie identified Copeland
as a fugitive from justice from Ohio. It is
supposed that the objeet of this is to ferret out
textiinonv inplioating other parties. The ex-
felteraent is unabated, snd erowds of persons
from the surrounding country are present, n o
fears are entertained as to the unfaithfulness of
the slaves, but a military guard is still koptup,
fearing an attempt to resoue the prisoners.
Consternation exists among- the slaves, oausod
by a fear of being soiled like those of Colonel
Washington. They firmly believe that the
object of the prisoaers was to carry them
South and sell them. Not a single slave has
yet been implicated as even sympathizing
with the inaurreotionisis. Those carried off
have all been oaptured and returned to their
masters. Cannon are stationed in front of the
Court-house, and an armed guard is patroling
around the jail.

There is a decided sympathy for Stevons, not
only on account of his sufferings, but also be
cause be has shown none of that vindlotire
ness and hardihood that oharaoterit.es Brown.
His regret is regarded as oausod by the oonse
quenoes of his folly.
The examination yesterday Indicated that
the other prisoners have lost their confidence
in Brown, and are. not disposed to follow him
la his defiant course.
Twelve o'clock Court reassembled Tho
jury reported a true bill against the prisoners
and wss discharged.
Charles B. Harding, assisted by Andrew
Hunter, represent tho Commonwealth; Charles
J. Faulkner and Lawson Bolts, counsel for the
prisoners. True bill read agalnsteach prisoner,
first for oonspiring with negroes to produoe in
surrection,' seoond, for treason to the Common
wealth, and third, for murder.
The prisoners were brought into Court, ao
companied by a body of armed men. Brown

. Before readinz the arraignment, Hunter
called the attention ef the Court to the neces
sity of appointing additional counsel lor tne
prisoners, stating that one of the oounsel
(Faulkner) was appointed by the County Court,
and considering his duty In that opacity as
having ended, had left The frisoners, there
fore, had no other counsel than Botts. If the
Court was about to assign then other counsel,
it might be proper to do ao now. Tbe Court
stated that it would giro then any members
of the bar they might select. ( After consulting
Captain Brown, Mr. Botts saidthat tho prisoner
retained him, and desired to have Mr. Green
attist him. If tbe Court would accede to that
arrangement, it would be i?ry agreeable to
him personally. . j 1
Tbe Court requested Mr.Greea to act ss
counsel for the prisoners, apt be contented to
do so. .:',- '
' Brown arose and eaid : "J do not intend to
detain the Court, hut merely with to eay, as I
have been promised a fsir Upl, that I am not
now in circumstances that enable me to attend
a trial, owing to the statejof my health. I
have a severe injury in the back, or rather in
one kidney, which enfeebUa me very much.
But I am doing well, and I (inly ask for a very
short delay of my trial, and I think I may get
able to listen to it, and 1 merely ask this that,
aa the saying is, ' the devil miy have his daes,'
no mote. I with to aay, further, that my hear
ing is impaired, and rendered Indistinct, in
consequence ef the wounds I have about my
head. I oan not heat distinotly at all. Ioould
not hear what the Court said this morning. I
would be glad to hear what is said on my trial,
and I am now doing better than I could ex
pect, so that, seeing that under the circum
stances a very short time woild be all I would
ask. I do not presume to ask more than a
very short delay, so that I may in some de
gree recover, and be able, at least, to listen to
my trial, and hear what questions aro asked
of tbe citizens, and what their answers are. If
that could be allowed me, ( ehould be very
much obliged." . ' . -i.. t !. :;,di. , J j
Hunter said the request was rather prema
ture; the arrangements ootid be made, and
this question could then be considered, i The
Court ordered tbe indictment to be read, so that
each prisoner could plead gtilty or not guilty,
and it would then consider Brown's request.
The prisoners were compelled to stand daring
the arraignment, Brown also standing.
Brown stood up with dificulty, and Ste
vens was held upright by two baliffs. i -A.
Porte Crayon was present ind took sketches
of the prisoners as thus arre-igned.i The
reading of the indictment occupied about
twenty minutos. The prisoners each re
sponded to the usual queetien, "Not Guilty,"
and desired to be tried sepnratoly.

into. ' ' : ' -'J ;
Mr. Bolls 1 am instructed to eay, by Mr.
Brown, that ho is mentally and physically
unable to proced iu his trial at this time. He
has also heard to-day, that counsel of his nwn :
choice will will be hore, whom ho will, of
course, prefer. He asks orly for a delay of
two or three days. It seems to me but a rea
sonable request, and I hops the Court will
grant it, ( .:,.;..,
Mr. Hunter said he did not think It tbe
duty of theproiecutorof the Commonwealth,
or any one occudj'ing that position, to oppose
BDythiug that justice required, nor to object
to anything that involved a simple 'consider
ation of humanrly, where it could be prop
erly allowed; yet in regard to this proposi
tion, to delay ithe trial of John Brown one,
two or three days, they t'ecmed it their duty
that the Court, before determining the mat
ter, should be put in possession of facta and
circumstance judicially that ' they were
awere of in the line of their ditties as prose
cutor. His own opinion wa, that it was not
proper to delay tho trial of this prisoner for
a single day, and that thero was no neces
sity for it. He alluded in general terms to
the conditiou of things with which they are
now surrounded, being- such as rendered it
dangorous, to say nothing of tho exceeding
pretsuro upon the physical retourccs of our
community growing out of tho circumstances
conneoted with the affairs for which the pris
oners are to be tried, and that our law in
making special provisions for allowing a
briefer time (hen usual, in case of conviction
for such offenders, within the discretion of
tbe Court, between condemnation and execu
tion, evidently, indicates indirectly the ne
cessity for acting promptly and decisively,
though always justly iu proceedings of this
In referonce to tbe physical condition of
Brown, he asked the Court not to receive un
important statements of the piisoners as suf
ficient ground for delay, but that tbe jailor and
physician be examined. As to expecting
counsel from abroad, he said no impediment
bad been thrown In tbe way of the prisoners
procuring such counsel as they desired, but on
the contrary evory facility had been afforded.
Able and Intelligent connsel had been assigned
them here, and he apprehended there was
little reason to expeet the attendance of these
gentlemen from the North who bad been
written to. There was also a public duty rest
ing upon them to avoid as far as possible
within the foima of t'.e law with reference to
tbe great and uever-to-be-lost-slght-of princi
ple, i. . giving a fair and impartial trial to the
prisoner. Tbe introduction of anything likely
to weaken our position and to give strength to
our enemies abroad; whether It Issued from the
jury, or whether it comes from tbe mouth of
the prisoner, or any other source, it was their
position that im' boen imperiled and jeopar
dised as they suimoee bv enemies., I
Mr. Hur ling concurred in the objection of
Mr. Hunter, on the ground ot, danger in delay,
also beoatue lirown was the leader of the In
surrection, und his trial aught to be proceeded
with on account of tbe advantage -thereby
acoruing oa the trial of the others. 1 j
Mr. Green remarked that he hsd enjoyed no
opportunity for consulting with the prisoner or
prop wing a defense. The letters for Northern
oounBel had been sent off but sufficient time
bad not been afforded to receive answers.
Under tbe circumstances he thronght a short
dolay desirable. , . ....
Mr. Botts added, that at present the excite
ment was so great as perhaps to deter northern
oounsel from coming, but now that it had been
promised that the prisoners were to have a fair
and impartial trial, he presumed, they would
come and take part in tbe case
The Court stated that if physical Inability
was shewn, a reasonable delay must be granted.
As to tho expectation ef other counsel that did
not constitute a sufficient oauae for delay, as
there was no certainty about them coming.
Under the eircumstanoes in which the prisoners
were situated, it was natural that they should
seek delay. Tbe brief period remained before
the olose of tbe term of the Court, rendered It
necessary to prooeed as expeditious aa was
praotioaMe, and to be cautious about granting
delays, he would request the physioiaa who
bad attended Brown, to testify as to his con
dition. ...
