The adaptation of the principle of electro-mag-netiani
to telegraph purpose has been to rapidlj
developed, from its earliest apprehension, up to
its and complete triumph in the recent lav
ing of the Atlantic cable, that the world has not
kept up with it, and even now can hardly realize
that this great work has indeed been accom
plished. " r
Electro-magnetism was discovered bj Prof. Oer
ten, of Copenhagen, in 1819. Although its ap
plicability to the transmission of telegraphic mes
sage was subsequently conceived of. and estab
lished by others, it was reserved for our country
man, Professor Samuel F. B. Morse, of New
York, to make the grand and crowning discovery,
which was patented in France in 1838, and in
this country in 1840, by the name of the " Amer
ican Electro-Magnetic Telegraph." Subsequently,
Mr. Alexander Bain patented, in England, his
claim for an improved electro-cbemical telegraph,
where the message was recorded by electricity
upon paper chemically prepared ; and in 1848-9,
Mr. Royal E. House, of New York, obtained an
American patent for a telegraph in which the
meeaage was recorded by types, and the circuit
broken and resumed, by means of keys similar to
those of the piano forte, answering to the letters of
the alphabet. The first electro-magnetic line in
the United States was that between Baltimore and
Washington, the distance 40 miles, completed in
1844, Congress contributing $20,000 towards its
construction. From this inception the work has
advanced until the present day, when there are
more then 35,000 miles of telegraph lines in the
United States, and in the world a total length ex
ceeding 100,000 miles.
In ls50, the first submarine tolegraph was laid.
A line of cable, 24 miles in length, was stretched
across the Straits of Dover, thus connecting England-
with France. Owing, however, to the
chafing of the wire against the rocks on the
French coast, it was severed within a month, and
a new and stronger cable was laid down, and is
in successful operation at this time. The imme
diate result of this success was the establishment
of various lines of submarine telegraph in Europe,
of which the line from England to Holland (being
115 miles) was the longest, until the laying of
that of 400 miles across tbe Black Sea. The id of
a trans-Atlantic cable does not seem to have been
entertained at this time. It was too stupendous
to be grasped, or if entertained, the scientific and
mechanical difficulties in the way were supposed
to 1 insuperable. Chief among these was the
difficulty which existed of transmitting a suffi
ciently powerful current of electricity through an
insulated wire of so vast a length. But the
inarch of genius coald not long be stayed.
The plan of an Atlantic telgraph was broached,
and repeated electrical experiments were had,
until perseverance was rewarded with success, and
in 18oo telegraphic signals were successfully re
corded through 2000 miU of wire, covered with
guttapercha; the various lines of the English
and Irish Magnetic Telegraph Company being
joined for the purpose. As the practicability of
the new project was thus far gradually demon
strated, there was room f.r the application of cap
ital. The American Company was therefore
formed as far back as 1854, Messrs. Peter Cooper
and Cyrus vT. Field taking a leading and enf r
getic part in the organization. The first step
was to secure a charter, this wa3 obtained in
April, 1854, from the Colonial Government of
Newfoundland the act being entitled An Act
incorporating a Company for the establishment
of Telegraphic communication between Europe
and America." The Company was thenceforth
known as New York, Newfoundland and Lon
don Telegraph Company." It received various
zr&nts from the Government of Newfoundland,
subsequently from that of Nva Scotia and New
Btunswick, and finally from the Crown of Eng
land and the Conzress of the United States.
Amnn thesa was the exclusive rizht
tor a term
of fifty years of landing telegraphic cable on the
shores of all the British North American Prov
inces except Nova Scotia for twenty-five years.
Great Britain further granted an annual subsidy
of 14,000 sterling until the net profits yield 6
per cent, per annum, on the whole capital of
3o0.000 sterling, the grant to be then reduced
tj 10,000 sterling per annum, for a period of
twenty-five years. The United States granted a
like annual subsidy of $70,000 until the net
profits vild 6 per cent, per annum, then to be
reduced to $50,000 for a period of twenty-five
vears, subject to termination of contract by Con
gress on giving one year's notice. The next step
of the Company was to connect St. Johns, New
foundland, with the lines already in operation in
the British North American Provinr, and in
the United States. by immersing 13 miles of cable
across the Straits of Northumberland, and 85
miles in the waters of the St. Lawrence. Eng
land being already connected telegraphically with
Ireland, there remained only the problem of
trans-Atlantic communication. , In 1856 Mr.
Cvrus W. Field visited England, for the purpose
of making final arrangements, and a.s a conse
quence .thereof the " Atlantic . Telegraph Com
pany" was formed, with a capital of 350,000.
The charter of the former, company was then
made over t the new one, with all its exclusive
rights and privileges, present and orospecti ve. The
next step was to acquire an accurate knowledge
of the geographical character of the bed of the
Atlantic, and the selection of the most feasible
route. The deep sea soundings of Lieuts. Maury
and Berrvman were mainly depended upon. The
basin of "the Atlantic was proved to be a lon
trough or groove, indented between the Old and
the New orlds. and extending almost from the
Northern to the Southern Pole. The hollow of
this burin is so great that the lowest depth of the
Atlantic is nine miles beneath tbe highest peak of
the Andes. In most places the actual bottom of
the Atlantic is much broken up and very irreg
ular, and of course if a route were selected where
these sudden elevations and depressions were most
decided, the cable would be suspended from sub
marine hill to hill, subject to a thousand disas
trous contingencies. A route was finally decided
upon, from information furnished by Lieut.
Maury. He demonstrated that there was a prac
ticable path North of the Bank of Newfoundland
on a vast oceanic plain or plateau. This plain is
scarcely 12,000 feet below the level of the sea,
and extends in a continuous ledge from Caje
Race, in Newfoundland, to Cap Clear in Ireland.
The greatest depression is in mid-ocean, whence
it imperceptibly ascends to the shoro on either
This plain was generally leveled, so deep as to
be below the reach of disturbing superficial
causes, and composed of particles of shells, so
minutely triturated as to render their character
indefectible save with the aid of a microscope.
Their presence, examined by the lights of science,
S roved how little those profound depths had been
isturbed in the course of uncounted ages, and
encouraged the hope that the cable, when once
laid along with them, might rest as tranquilly
perhaps as long.
The next thing in ordT, was to determine
what sort of a cable should be used. It must
not be so heavy as to break by its own weight, or
so light that it would be at the mercy of the cur
rents. After numberless experiments, the present
form was adopted. The central conducting wire
is a strand made of seven wires of the purest cop
per, of the guage known in the trade as No. 22.
The strand itself is about the sixteenth of an inch
in diameter, and is form.d of one straight,
drawn wire, with six others twisted round it;
this is accomplished by the central wire being
dragged from a drum, through a bole in a hori
xontal table, while the table itself revolves
rapidly, under the impulse of steam, carrying
near its circumference six reels or drums, each
armed with copper wire. Every drum revolves
upon its own horizontal axis, and so delivers its
wire as it turns. This strand, having been wrap
ped in cotton, is heavily encased in gutta percha,
and the whole fabric is covered with wire, and
ooated with tar.
The mechanical construction of the cable hav
ing thus been settled upon, as also the character
of the machinery for paying it out, it was deter
mined to make the first attempt at laying it in
tbe month of August, 1857. The steam frigate
Niagara was detailed for that purpose by the
United States, and the English government
provided the frigate Agamemnon ; while the nec
essary tenders were furnished jointly by the two
fo vera menU. The plan was for tbe Niagara
the cable having been fira,t made fast on shore at
Valencia Bay, Ireland,) to pay out her half of
the cable, until mid ocean. being reached, the
Agamemnon should erect a splice, and continue
the laying of the same to Trinity Bay on the
ronst of New Foundland.
Th 1W . coJmpring sfeh vl iild from
Valencia Bay on the 5th day of August. After
335 miles of the cable had been laid, it parted in
consequence of an injudicious application of the
brakes to the paying out machinery.
Though this first attempt to lay the great
Ocean Telegraph was a disappointment, yet the
people on both sides of the Atlantic had a firm
taith in the accomplishment of the enterprise at
some future period; and the directors of the
Atlantic Telegraph Company, nothing daunted
by the first failure of their great enterprise, at
once commenced preparations for a Sicoxn Ex
pedition, and no time has been fruitlessly spent
in carrying them out.
Accordingly, early in the fall of 1857 the
Piimmm held a series of meetings, at which
many modifications and improvements, suggested
by the first unsuccessful attempt, were Drougnt
under discussion. The result of these con
ferences, was a thorough revision of their former
plan, and the adoption of a new one, the leading
features of which were
1. Junction of the Telegraphic Cable in mid-
The provision of a greater length of Cable.
The selection of an earlier season of the
An improvement in the paying-out machin
A second attempt having been determined
upon, the Niagara in the meantime visited New
lork, and having undergone the necessary re-
Biirs, was again detailed for this purpose, while
er Majesty's Government again assigned the
Agamemnon to the service of tbe Company, and
issued orders to the reddle-wheel steamers Valor
ous and Gordon to accompany the expedition as
tenders. The Gordon acted subsequently as ten
der to the Niagara, and the taloious waited
upon the Agamemnon. In March, 1858, the
fWt Kp"nr in rpnriinpm. and the Cora nan v having
provided an additional supply of Telegraphic
Cable, nothing remained but to proceed with the
preparations for the sailing of the fleet. The
stowing of the cable on board the two vessels,
was then commenced at Keyham Docks, and was
conducted with great care. It was finished on
the 18th day of May, at which time there was
about 1500 miles of cable' on board eachship.
The shipment having been completed, the Niagara
and Agamemnon sailed for Queenstown, Ireland,
on Saturday, May 29th.
After a tew days spent in experimental trips,
the Second Telegraphic Expedition sailed from
Plymouth for the rendezvous in mid-ocean, on
Thursday, June 10. The Niagara and Agamem
non were attended by Her Britanic Majesty's
steamers Gorgon and Valorous.
The announcement ot the departure oi tne
Expedition, revived the anxiety with which every
step of this grand enterprise has been received by
the public during the period of the first attempt.
T-dings from the fleet were awaited in painful
suspense. Meanwhile, a stormier June than has
been known on the Atlantic for many years,
inspired fears for the result. Days passed away,
and still no news came. .. "Weeks fled, and yet no
tidings were received ; until at last the unwelcome
news came, that the mishaps of wind and weather
had proved disastrous to the expedition. Three
distinct trials had leen made, and all unsuccess
fully. The vessels then returned to Queenstown,
the'Niagara arriving on the 5th of July, and the
Agamemnon one week later.
Immediately after the return of the Telegraphic
Fleet, the Directors of the Company in England
held a special meeting, to take into consideration
the exnedienev of makimr another attempt. A
sufficient amounet of cable still remaining perfect.
on board the Niagara and Agan emnon, and the
months of July and August being considered a
suitable season, another trial teas resolved upon,
and the expedition sailed on the morning of Sun
day, the 18th of July last.
On the afternoon of lhurdav, August otn, tne
startling intelligence reached this city, that the
Submarine Cadi.e hap been- scccessitlly laid.
and that the line was in perfect working order.
The welcome news could scarcely be credited, un
til fully corroborated by subsequent dispatches.
The public has since "been gratified with full
extracts from the log, as kept during the pro
gress of the laying of the cable, by Cyrus TV.
Field, Eq., who has been the masW-spirit of the
enterprise, and identified with it from the begin
ning. It is peculiarly gratifying to Americans,
that this enterprise was first conceived in this
country. In spite of all the objections urged
against it, a small company of New York capi
talists persevered with a determination that was
proof against all discouragement. Had they suc
cumbed, the world would in all probability have
been deprived of this great boon ; for the numer
ous disasters and the enormous loss of capital,
would have prevented a renewal of the enterprise,
until a very distant future.
The work is done. It is no wonder that popu
lar enthusiasm has been raised to fever heat by
this achievement, as glorious as it is unexpected
one destined to result in incalculable benefits
to all mankind. N. H. Register.
