New York to Portugal, via Cape Charle3, to the
Azores, thence to Lisbon and the Continc.it.
This new and plgautic enterprise Las been
utaricd, and i in the incipicucy of its progress,
wilder the title of "The American Atlantic Cable
Teleeraph Company," which hus ulready been
incorporated under the act passed April 12,
1H48, lor the incorporation and regulation of
Teleeraph Coni pilules. Tue shares arc pl'ice t
at $100, one hundred thousand of whicli form
the capital Ptock. Four persons may take one
share among them nt $2o each. This' coinuanv
has been established with the aim of provi'liutr
for a cheaper, more speedy, and truH wormy
ccmmunicatiou between the Uuited Stales and
all Europe. As the influence of the elements
and the action of electricity became fully un
dendood, science and art f urnished the neces
sary means to accomplish interocennic com
munication and to brine it into successiul
operation. American Telecruph engineers have
been remarkably successful in laying; cables, in
every instance where the Lecd lor their use has
been experienced. The teleeraph 19 essentially
and especially fin American invention; und an
independent American routeshotild he favorably
received by the American public. The route
elected by the "American Atluuiic-Cable Tele
graph Company" is lroui the coast of the United
Slates, via Cape Charles, ucro8 to the island
f Bermuda, passing thiousU ihe coast to the
Azore Islands, commonly known as the Western
Isles, and from thence direct to Lisbon, the
capital of Portugal. A map of the projected
cable, which lies before us, fully explains the
Tonte and the feasibility of the plan. The cable
will be laid in three sections, the tirst and third
of which will be much the same length, and the
second, crossing niid-oceiin, is just double the
distance of the third. In tae event of auy
casualty, no matter how serious, to cither of
the sections, the other two would, as a matter
of course, remain intact, whereas an entire sus
pension of communication would be the result
at any accident, no matter how trifling,
to the present Company:s route from
Valentia to Newfoundland. This route
was suggested by Mr. W. 6. rVorl, the Presi
dent of rhe Company. The success of this
cable will be of great and beneficial service to
the commerce of botu countries, by establis hing
in the Atlantic Ocean two shipping stations. one
at the island of Bermuda und the other at
the Azores, whereat the outward and homeward-bound
master of vessels will be immedi
ately placed In direct communication with the
owners, In case of any exigency arising out of
accident or other perils of the sea. Ihe ques
tion of keeping these two stations connected
with the main land Is a solved problem, as
cables in different parts of the world arc worK
inR a much greater distance than that which
exists between New York an. I Bermuda, or the
Azores and Lisbon. The construction of this

presence seemed to create an awe as hi rode
along, and the most noisy even hushed. Also
the staff that rode behind him were perfectly
quiet. They indulged in no conversation, and
no smile wreathed their lips. Like shadows they
rode after a spectre. The soldiers would say,
Who is that?' 'Why that's General Smith.'
Who's General Smith?' would be the next in

THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH. PHILADELPHIA, MONDAY,, SEPTEMBER 3, 18CG.
fSince the recent mediation ot the Emperor of
the Frt t rh, which has perhaps saved Austria
from total annihilation, there is reason to be
lieve thai the desire of France to possess the
ashen ot the young Prince who was tor a tew
hours .Napoleon II, has been acceded to by the
Kmpcror Francis Joseph, and that the mortal
re mains of the King Qf Rome will soon be placed
beneath the dome of the Invalidcs, side by side
with those of his Illustrious fatbr. Tims the
great Napoleon and his son, separated by destiny
in life, will at last be united in deatb. Botu
died in the land oi exile, and neither will have
found repose upon the soil of Franco until after
many years' sleep far fpom her shores one upon
a rock-bound island in a distant ocean, and the
other in the funeral vault ot an Austrian pa!ace.
Little is generally known In America
of the last years of Napoleon II, and
the present moment reems opportune
to give a sketch of his brief and melan
choly career. Joseph Charles Francis Napo
le n, King of Rome, Duke of Reichstadt, was
bom at Paris on the 20th day of March, 1811.
All the good fairies seemed to have assembled
around his cradle, and all appeared to predict
lor him honors, riches, and power; not ona
intimated a doubt of his futnre grandeur aid
lustre! But, despite the happy presages which
accompanied his birth, scarcely three years
after he came into the world as the heir of
Napoleon, the young Prince left France on the
2d of May, 114, never to return during life.
On antving in the dominions of his grand
father, the Emperor of Austria, his title was
si. i f rcsscd, the name he bore proscribed, every
tact in h.story which recalled the glory of his
father and tie humiliation of his enemies was
carefully concealed from the child's knowledge,
und at seven eart,of acre the son ot Napoleon
brranie.the i)uke of Reichatndt. An Imperial
decree, promulgated July 22, 1818 the 22d of
July was alco the date of his death conferred
upon h'.m the t,(-.e of an Austrian duke, fixed
his iank at the Court of Vienna, the arms he
was io bear, the honors to which ho was to be
entitled, and the position he was to occupy as a
member oi the Imperial family of Austria. No
trace of Napoleon was left, and the name itself
was formally- suppressed by the decree. After
ward, as he grew up and learned what a hero
had been his faiher, he suddenly awoke as
from a lone slumber. When he read in
secret the nory of Napoleon's immortal cam
paigns, and comprehended the glory and
power to which the genius of his father had
attained, it seemed to him that he had all
at once entered upon another world, illuminated
by ihe histcry of gigantic exploits. Then,
oespite those who surronuded him, despite the
incessant watch kept over uim, he determined
to know all. lie obtaiucd and eagerly devoured
every work in which Napoleon's name was
mentioned, aud finally, when he realized how
great his faiher bad be, and what humiliations
had been heaped upon him, Low he died a tor
tured prisoner, the jounsr prince was tilled with
an immense haired ot those who had aecoiu-plit-hed
the banished soldier's long martyrdom.
His indignation was al.-o excited against the
decree which deprived blm of the name which
he iustly regarded as the most glorious of thos
he boie, aud he immediately and resolutely sig
nified his intention to be called Napoleon. Likv
his lather, he was tond of the prolessiou of
arms, but his tall, tbiu body could not
withstand thearduous exercises to which he at
tempted to school himsell. Appointed Colonel
ot the Gustavus asa regiment, be assumed the
active command, tooK nart in every fatiguing
ceremony, in all weather; aud no matter how
ill he was, or how much hid phvsicians remon
strated. His dreams were- of glory. He studied
the art of war in tne numberless descriptions ot
his lather's battles, cither rearing them or in
ducing others to recount them to him, with the
map of Europe beneath his eyes. He would
never consent to lie down, except when his
feebleness absolutely forced him to do so. He
well knew that he must soon die, but he had
only one regret in leaving
that was to have done so
himself worthy to bear the
leon. I remember having

oiten seen, m
America, an engraylug representing him
grasping his fathers sword, ind lamenting
his powerlessness to wield the weapou whicu
had so long "made all Europe tremolo." The
phrae attributed to him may be apocryphal,
as regards the strict letter of the expression, but
that such were in reality his feelings cannot be
doubted for an instant. His mother, a woman
whose heart seemed insensible to any ennobling
emotion, and who had not the dignify to re
main the widow of Napoleon his mother wept
at his bedside, when the fatal moment drew
near. "Mother! mother I" he whispered, "I
am dying I" It was the 32d of July, 1S32, und
these were the laet words of NaDoleon II. ex-
vM& in murmur upon his lips, with his la-t
breath. Thus died the son of the great Captain,
at the age of twenty-one year. Six days after
his death, on the 28th, a post-mortem examina
tion ot the rtmams was made at Schonbrunn.
The following is an extract of the medical
icport: "The body completely emaeiated; the
chest, in proportion to the body, long and nar
row; the sternum flattened; the neck wated."
He wus interred at Schonbrunn with princely
honors, and visitors to his tomb, at the present
day, will see upon it a Latin inscription, ot
which ttio loiiowing is a translation:

A WIDOW'S LOVK FOB BES COACHMAN, AND WHAT

A Pittsburg (Pa.) paper tells the following
"Aoout two years since a wedding took ninac

wealthy old gentleman named Burns then re

became the husband of a prepossessing damsel
ot sweet sixteen. After enjoying tho Bwcets of

months the aged bridegroom died, leaving his
youthful partner the snug sum of ten thousand
dollars. Being very fond of paying vwlts to
the rural districts, as well as to tn'o grave of her
dear departed, sbe frequently had recourse to the

At the recent session of the American Pharma

of Middlctown, N. Y., read a scientific paper oa
"Metallic h ad in flour," in which sumo startling
statements were ra ade. He aid :
"Within a radius of five miles of Philllpsbiirg,

cases oi sickness, piesentlng ihe same symptoms,

was ascertained that three weeks pre
