American and Asiatic Tchyrayh Company;
Friday, Aay the and otfre the Srnoe,

Mr. Chairman" and Gentlemen or the Committee:
The Government and people of the United Statea
full; appreciate the need and Ligh importance of
n 'juk-Ic and direct communication between tbc
Pacific Coasts of America and tboee of Asia, and
the inhabitants of California, who are the inoet
interested, and therefore warmly desire and favor
the idea of a Sub-Pacific Cable, which will be
the forerunner of many other enterprises, and all
combined will contribute to make Siaii Francisco
the clearing-boufee, and the intermediary point
between Eastern Asia, the United States, and
According to the good order of things, the time
and distance at sea regulates the market on land,
bo anything starting from our western sea coasts
reaches the land where it is sun-rising far eooner
than from any other part of Europe. All this
induces the citizens of California and Oregon to
firmly beheve that China and Japan, could be
made for the Americans the same Held of com
merce, enterprise and wealth, that the East Indies
have been to the English. They arc not to be
conquered by arms, but by the peaceful inventions
of the age steamers, railways, aud telegraphs.
At present the Americans are dependent upon
English enterprise for conveying their submarine
messages from the United States to China and
Japan and rice versa.
K'ow, the gentlemen at the head of the Ameri
can and Asiatic Telegraph Company, whose names,
with mine, are printed in the bill, whose respec
tability is proverbial in California, and whoee
collective wealth is far superior to the amount of
money required to complete this enterprise, have
entrusted to me the high honor to come and speak
before you, and assure you that they design to put
an end to this humiliating Btate of things and
f repare a new way, by laying a cable from our
'acific Coasts across the Pacific Ocean, via the
Sandwich or Aleutian Islands, to Japan, Corea,
and China; shortening the distances, greatly re
ducing prices, and place it under the control of
Americans, giving at all times to their own gov
ernment the priority over all other nations,, cor
porations, or individuals; it asks from Congress
no subsidy or privileges, as it is stated in the bill,
provided that the Secretary ol the Navy be di
rected to detail, for the surveys and soundings, on
and along that portion of the Pacific coasts in
America and Asia, where it may be determined
to establish said submarine cable, one or more
steam vessels to afford such assistance as may be
calculated to promote the success of the enterprise.
Now, this proposition, instead of being a burden
to the Government, will prove beneficial, as all
vessels last longer at sea than laying idle at the
navy yards, while the work assigned will contrib
ute in extending the knowledge of our officers in
the science and practice of hydrography. . To
that effect, the United States steamer Tuscarora
has already completed the sounding from our Pa
cific coaBts, San Diego, California, to Yokohama,
(Japan,) and found that the deepest points of the
waters 3,287, 3,232, and 3,001) lathoms are nearer
to the shores of Asia than those of America.
Now, Mr. Chairman, the Pacific Cable will be
the pivot upon which will turn, in the near fu
ture our supremacy in Japan and China. It
would at once put us in immediate communication
with the far Ea6t; give a wonderful impulse to
our commerce there ; place us in the most favora
ble position for controlling trfc trade; add pres
tige and influence to our name already promi
nent in those Eastern regions awaken sympathy
everywhere, and inspire confidence and security to
governments and people, the idea that they are
connected by cable with a powerful and friendly
nation. Look at the bright future before this
Japan, the most enlightened of the nations of
Asia, has begun the construction of railroads and
telegraphs, and we Americans will help to con
tinue and go-ahead with this work. China with
a population of 400,000,000, and 3,500,000 of
square miles of territory, docs not possess one
mile of railways or telegraph. There is every
probability that as soon as this cable shall reach
the shores of China, grants will be obtained from
the Chinese government to enable the company to
reach all the principal cities of that vast Empire.
Whoevcf builds the telegraph, will build the
railroads. Thus you see what an immense Held
opens for American enterprise, industry, and en
ergy. This is the only way to successfully com
pete with the English, who now have a paramount

We should try to have on land the advantages
they have at sea ; to have them tributary to us
for the pending of messages, importing and ex
porting in and out of the interior of the country,
as we are to them in regard to the sea ; watching
every opportunity to supplant them in the end.

insignificant when compared to the internal com
merce of the two whole Empires, that could be
made tributary to the ramifications and connec
tions of our cables or lines of telegraph and rail
roads. The numerous foreign merchants, doine
business there, would at once make free U6e of
telecrranhic facilities, and the Chinese and .Tartan-
ese, although they are not inventors, are certainly
skillful and patient imitators, and keenly alive to
mercantile enterprises. They will not fail to

whom I met in Pekin, the honored representative
of our country. Are they not good proofs of this
friendship; inducements enough to make us turn
our thoughts toward China, Japan, Corea and
Siam, and look at the Pacific Ocean as tho only
one now left to us for the revival of our naviga
tion and commerce? The Pacific cable will be
the foundation stone of this commercial edifice.
Let us retain all the advantages possible of the
friendship of these Orientals, and of the magic
power of this wonderful Italo-American inven
tion, the electric telegraph.
Suppose, Mr. Chairman, if any communication
of a secret need to be sent to our ministers or
admirals in the East, or our relations in that
quarter become complicated, what reliance could
we place in the transmiteion of our Government
messages through cables owned by other nations
and especially so, when it is remembered that
these cables are all controlled by our English
rival? . Our secrets would he a mockery, and
our plans defeated ! ,
Alter enumerating all these facts and supposi
tions as well as advantages, and attentively look
ing at our geographical position, not a true
American can deny that the Pacific cable is an
imnerious necessity. It is a f?i?antic work in
X " W O D
which patriotism ought to occupy a higher place i
than the hope ot grana pecuniary returns. In
deed, it should stir the pride of every American
citizen, and animate them with the noble desire
to witness the completion of the great pathway
toward the East, which had its foundation in the
daring and skill that overcame the obstacles of
the Rocky Mountains.
Gentlemen, do not leave this work unfinished
and incomplete! Crown its summit with this
electric capstone, and help with your wisdom,
patriotism, aid power to establish tho last line
needed for embracing the entire circumference of
the globe with the telegraphic wires! Again,
gentlemen, in the name of the company, I ask
from you, and through you, the sanction from
Congress to lay this cable. We have lull confi
dence that we can furnish the capital necossary
for this national enterprise; we have every reason
to believe that the Chinese and Japanese will vie
with Americans in buying the shares, ns soon as
thy find out that tlie work of the foreigners,
instead of impaling the current of the Eimy
Shun (jrood fortune) ill help it, and in a few
minutes tby can communicate a message, where
before, weeks and months were required ; and as
the postal system docs not exist m China, they
arc obliged to send a footman on their own
account, at a larg" expense of time and money.
Everyone, frrm the highest mandarin to the
lowest eliOpkevi.T, will lay aside their supersti
tions and prejudices, aud will make use of the
telegraph, and travel by railway, as they have
done by tearucrs. At tbc present day nearly
two-thirdi ol the steamers in China waters are
owned by the Chinese. In proof ol this, we only
need to point to the liberal cse that the Chinese
in California make of the wires, railroad, and
the eteamboat3. There is no lack of money in
China and Japan. I have teen with my own
eyes, vast sums of money, both in gold and silver,
hoarded for years without use, waiting for invest
ment. Narly all the Mexican and Spanish pillar
dollars, as well as the East India rupees and a
great deal of gold of every nation, have found
their way into China and Japan the lor.g closed
treasury-fwuse of the world. By means of the
modern Innovations, of which the telegraph is
foremost, we can withdraw them. Commerce
has tried ; but has not succeeded, as there exist
the traditional custom of exchanging ; the China-
man lor wnatever ne Duys irom loreignere, ne
gives in return prodacts of Lis native soil, if tlie
balance is against us foreigners lie wants our
money ; but the plan 1 propose will turn the tide.
The Chinaman who would have to go from one
town to another, could not go to the station and
procure passage-ticket by ouermg in payment a
few pounds of tea, or a few pounds of eilk, but
have to bring his silver or gold. In the same
manner he must do for sending a telegraphic
message, or taking rjassage on board ot steam
boats ; consequently the countless millions that
for centuries have gone and remained in posses
sion of the Chinese and Japanese, will hereafter
take their wav across the Pacific to the United
Mr.. Chairman, grand opportunities present
themselves to a man, as well as to a generation,
seldom more than once in their life-time; so, I
cannot believe that this honorable committee will
refuge its support to the present one, which is en-
... I - 11 - A. A. 1 T-l
iireiy American, anu it aims iu prevent in' -c.u-glish
from driving us away from the Pacific Ocean,
as thev did from the Atlantic. I trust that it
will receive from Congress the hearty response
which it so richly deserves; such an enterprise is
no longer an experiment, but an easy achieve
ment. We, in Ameriea, have no connection with
Asia, and the great Island-Continent of Australia,
and the islands lying between them, except by the
lines through the nations or waters of Asia, the
lied and Mediterranean Seas, the Continent of
Europe, across England and Ireland and New
foundland, and under the Atlantic. To hear
from Australia, Japan, or China, with whom we
have a large and growing trade and intercourse,
the words must travel perhaps, twenty-hve thou
sand miles (25,000) to reach us only six thou
sand (0,000) miles away. This plan of mine, of
a cable from California to China, would save us
three-fourths of the distance, cost, and time now
The amount of money spent every year by the
Government and people of the United States for
sending their messages through English cables
from America to Asia is larger than the interest
at seven per cent, of the capital necessary for the
construction of the Sub-Pacific cable.
Marry America to China and Japan by an elec
tric cord at the bottom of the sea, and the fruit
of the union will be the extension of our civiliza
tion, the increase of our commerce, the main
tenance of our national comity, the diffusion of
Christianity, and the common good of mankind.
Gentlemen, the time will come when all of you
will feel an honorable pride to have given your
powerful support to this grand undertaking, and,
to conclude, I promise you the grand and enviable
reward to 6hare with us the glory to have con
tributed toward extending to more than a third of
the sons of Adam the improvements of modern
times, and the gratitude of the present and fu

The A. S. N. Co.'s S. S. City of Melbourne, J. W.
Brown, Commander, arrived at this port on thelCtli
inst. from Sydney Aug. 29, viaKandavu -the quick
est time yet reported. After taking on board a few
tons of freight and a number of passengers, she
sailed for San Fraucisco at 1 a. m., on .Thursday
We quote paragraphs of interest from the Sydney
Morning Herald of the 28th :
Since the departure of the last mail steamer by
the Pacific route, the organization of the Mail
Service has undergone an important change. Mr.
Hall, the contractor, left by the Mikado, but
without leaving any sufficient provision for the
continuation of the service. Iiis attorney has full
powers, but was without the sinews of war. It has
since transpired that, owing to the unforeseen
expens-'3 occasioned by casualties, the charter
money for the different vessels engaged has not
been punctually remitted, and that the owners had
sent out instructions to withdraw the vessels. The
contractors' agent having been formally applied to
by the Government to know if he was in a position
to continue the service, and having admitted that
he was not, the Government undertook to supply
the omission itself, and has accordingly made a
special contract with the Australasian Steam Navi
gation Co. to carry the mails for the present trip.
The service, therefore, may be considered as in a
transition state ; the contract previously existing is
in suspense, but it way not have been absolutely
terminated. The Government has confined itself,
for the present, to a temporary arrangement for
two reasons, first, because New Zealand is equally
with itself a parly to the contract, and New Zeal
and is not represented in Sydney by any one with
whom the Government could take counsel, nor is
there at present a telegraphic line to that colony
that would enable the Government to be communi
cated with directly. Mr. Vogel has been appealed
to send up a plenipotentiary, and has promised to
do so. Under circumstances the Government of
New South Wales has acted to the best of its judg
ment in the interest of both parties, but at the
same time has done only what was necessary.
pending communications by letter with the Gov
ernment of New Zealand. Another cause that
operates to keep the service in a temporary condi
tion is the fact that it is at present unknown how
far the English capitalists, who are parties to the
permanent contract, are desirous of vacating it,
and until their decision on that point is knowu no
fresh contract can be well entered into.
The misadventures which have befallen the ser
vice by the stranding of the Mucgreyor and the
Tartar, are greatly to be lamented, but such acci
dents might happen to any service, and in fact they
happen to most services. The opinion that prevails
in Sydney is that the English capitalists, who are
parties to the contract, have been unnecessarily
alarmed, and have done themselves a wrong by
backing out of an enterprise which contains
within itself an abundant promise of a future
proGt. It is thought that if they had been in full
possession of all the facts of the case they would
have seen that the anticipated loss incurred ia the
first instance would be more than redeemed by
spirited persistence in the enterprise. The passen
ger traffic that has already been diverted to the
new route has astonished every one, and it would
have continued to increase if the vessels had all
been adapted to the service, and the arrangements
for the comfort of the passengers had been satis
factory. But the vessfla having been hurriedly
selected and brought on to Ibe route, and having
been originally designed more for cargo than for
passenger traffic, it was impossible to improvise
such accommodation as passengers are entitled to
expect. With vessels however adapted to the line,
and the organization of the line completed so as
to enable the voyages to be performed with regu
larity, no such complaints would arise. By the
almosL universal, testimony of ihose who have
taken the Pacific route, it is, in every way. prefera
ble to that by way of Cape Horn, being both less
disagreeable and more interesting; and as the flow
! of passenger traffic to and fro between Europe,
America ana Australia, vt annually increasing, tne
trade, large as it is. has already shown that it must
steadily increase. It will be a matter of consid
erable regret if thone gentlemen who took up this
contract should prematurely drop it and lose their
money, because we should desire that those who
come forward to carry out a contract on our
behalf should find a fair reward for their capital
and their enterprise. If. however, they withdraw,
the service itself will not lapsv There are others
who have been watching its development with no
j little interest,-who are perfectly cognizant of its
i capabilities, and w:ho are quite ready to accept ii
t rpousiuilitis.'3 So far as hi Government ol this
j colony is concerned,' it has announced its resolu
t lion t-ii no account whatever to allow the service
to lapse5, and ; have every reason to hope (bat
j .the.Governiaejit of New Zealand will be equally
i reolute. The local steam fleet, with th' ,s?i,Lince
of such vessel now running in tlie Iirin service
a can be retained on the guarantee of the Gov
ernment, will suSce t. keep the service goir.s for
the present, and until new arrangements can be
made ; so that our English reader niav be assured
that whoever else is dismayed the Government of
this colony is not. but will either arrange to tare
the fervice temporarily cou:iuued or will carry it
on itseM until a fresh permanent coniract can be
entered into. No doubt whatever e.iti in Sydney
as to the policy cf maiataiaiug this line of mail
coxmuriication" nor i there anything like regret
at the colony having committed i'.sell to the enter
prise. Every reason which justilUd its inception
justifies its maintenance, an l it will be carried
through ia spite cf all obstacle.
The events of the past month though not exactly
cf a sensational character have not been Altogether
devoid of interest. That which has perhaps exercised
the pablis mini most, is the position of the Sin Fran
cisco mail service, which was threatened with & tem
porary interruption. This has Dot only been averted
by the timely aid of the A. S. N. Co., but we have
had a public assurance from the Premier that the line
will not be closed, even though the contract with the
Australian and American Mail Company should
break down. Since this announcement was made
the Colonial Secretary proceeded to th Riverine dis
trict, and there, we learn by telegram, he has pro
mised speedy railway communication with Sydney as
well as an amended land law, enabling those who
wish to combine graiing and agriculture to take up
larger areas of land than are obtainable under the
present Act. As Parliament has been further pro
rogued to September 15 without the date of meeting
being notified, next session must necessarily be of
such brief duration as to cause the remission of an
amended land bil' to a new House. Extremely wet
weather in the interior, while being unfavorable to
business, has been of service to the agricultural and
pastoral interests, neither cf which have ever pre
sented more favorable indications than they do at this
moment. Ihe increased yield of our wool last year,
as shown by that portion shipped here, was 10,000
bales more than the preceding one; ana for the sea
son of 184-o we anticipate a still. larger increase.
Money has been plentiful; we believe it will continue
so unless bo me very unforeseen causes arise. Regret
is expressed for the misfortunes which have occurred
to the Torres Straits mail steamers, lhe tlintshire
had hardly left the colony after repairing before the
Jeddah was reported as having put into lwoiou isay,
with cartjo on fire in the forehold, which necessitated
that compartment being scuttled. Notwithstanding
these mishaps the company's trade is steadily increas
ing, and when their new boats are running a pros
perous business is almost certain. We regret having
to announce the untimely death of Commander uowl
land. It. N., Admiralty Surveyor, who was drowned
on the 14th, while taking soundings at Sydney Heads.
Besides being an officer of great scientific attainments
he was deservedly respected by all classes, and his
loss is much regretted. News from the mining dis
tricts, if not startling, is at least satisfactory, and if
we do not hear of any wonderful finds, we have en
couraging reports from the gold and tin companies, as
well as from the principal copper-proJuciDg districts.
Ureal interest is manifested in the forthcoming Inter
colonial Gig Race, to take place on the Parramatta
River next month. The Sydney rowers have met
Victorian crews in four contests, suffered defeat once.
and as that once transferred the championship to
Melbourne, they are anxious to recover it. Nothing
positive is yet known as to the departure of His Ex
cellency Sir 11. Robinson for xiji, his lull instructions
from the Home Government not having yet arrived.
His Excellency the Governor has been pleased to
approve of Mr. James II. Williams being provisionally
recoenized as Actinir Commercial Agent lor the
United States of America, at Sydney, pending a ref
erence to her Majesty a Government.
