' Columbus, Sept. 5, lS'it. ' E. 'T. R.
' From theJYew York Courier Enquirer '.'
Atlabtic Stfam Navioatioi. The an
nunciation that English capitalists have not
embarked in the construction of steamers for
the navigation pf the Atlantic with the readi
ness which was anticipated by many, appears
to raise a doubt in the minds of some, wheth
er the experiment has as yet been fairly tested ;
and consequently, whether the period has in
fact arrived when the navigation ofthe Atlantic
by steam is to be continued and prove both se
cure and profitable. : '"' ' ' ' , 'V
' As we have experienced the advantages of
a passage by ssteam to and from Europe, and
feeling a deep interest in the subject took eve
ry opportunity of informing ourselves in rela
tion to' the practical operation of this grand
"experiment" as it was then considered we
propose briefly to'say a few words on the sub
ject. We re aware that, there exist , a few
among the Packet Captains, who consider eve
ry attempt to facilitate the introduction ofsteam
in the navigation nf the Atlantic as a direct as
sault upon their interests; but we are proud to
add, that these are but exceptions to the gene
eral rule, and that generally speaking, the Pack
et Owners and captains, (and all the captains
are owners,' not only look with favor upon the
success which has thus far attended the expe
riment, but are anxious to render every aid in
their powpr to insure its success, ; True, most
of them believe,' and we think truly, that there
will be business enough In the way of freights,
for both Steamers anu Packets; but if this were
not the case, such is the spirit of liberality and
love of enterprise which characterize thisclasB
of our fellow citizens, that they are willing to
loose sight of all personal considerations in
their1 desire to advance the cause of science,
and improve means of intercourse between the
old and the new world To the liberality . and
enterprise of our Packet owners; the energy,
perseverance, science and skill of our Packet
Captains; and to tho unequalled character of
our Packets their comlort, satety and regu
larity, added to the luxuries which they have
afforded to all who have travelled in them is
the city of New York and the country at 'arge
indebted to an extent which is almost inappre
ciable.. And although the introduction bf
Steam will beyond all doubt, materially injure
their usefulness in the conveyance' of passen
gers and the carrying of news, between the Old
and New world, yet all l who are' guided by cor
rect feelings'will forever be mindful pf what
we owe to Liners, and hold in grateful remem
brance those wild sailed and controlled them.
This is the age of improvement, and what was
invaluable but yesterday, is too often rendered
useless in a few hours by. the developments
of science and practical application to the eve
ry day occurrences' of life. ' If tfierefore, the
march of improvement should thrust aside our
splendid Liners, even those most interested in
them are prepared to, submit with grace, and
will convert a portion at least, of their magni
ficent cabins into hold and thus chancre the
character instead of diminish, the amount of I
their business." '', '.,':,'..
In considering . the feasibility of navigating
the1 Atlantic by steam,' the public have doubt
ed the practicability of carrying sufficient fuel
the comparative safety of steamboats and
finally, whether, these difficulties being, over:.,
come, they could be rendered profitable For
ourselves we never, entertained any doubt ex
cept with regard to the question of profit, ana
even on this ppint ( , there is no longer a question
in our mind.' '"--'.';. .r

tirely different from the rolling of a sail vessel,
that it almost ceases to be an inconvenience.
All who are familiar with the Ocean, are well
ware, that when a sail vessel rolls, she brings
up with jerk which generally sends dishes,
glasses,., tables, and everything that is movea
ble,, from one, side of the cabin to another
sani eeremonie. ; But not so with the Great
Western, or any large steamboat. : From the
causes just enumerated, or some other, when
rolling with the heaviest sea directly abeam,
she rolled so easy that it was impossible to de
termine when she ceased her roll to one ' side
and commenced her roll back again, . The con
sequence of this peculiarity was, that in the
heaviest weather we were quietly seated at ta
ble without the slighest protection to dishes or
wine glasses,' and rarely if ever did it happen
that a wine glass well filled with wine, was in
danger of being upset. On our passage, to
England we had three officers ofthe navy and
several masters of vessels passengers with us,
am) on, our return one officer of the navy and
two masters -of vessels, and we ar authorized
to say, that etch of these repeatedly declared,
that the Great Western wus the easiest sea
boat they had ever been on board of, and in
their estimation,' as safe as any vessel in the
world. .. We will take this occasion to add,
that her captain is as gentlemanly a comman
der as could possibly be desired, and well qua
lified for the important station he holds.
But our object is not to write and article in
favor of either the Great Western or her Com
mander. Ws commenced these remarks un
der a conviction that our fellow-citizens have
exhibited a lukewannness in regard to this
question of Atlantic steam navication. which
does not become the commercial emporium of
the union; and having had more than usual ex
perience in the matter, we deem it our duty
frankly to report the result of those observa
tions, in the hope of arousing our merchants
to the necessity of making some prompt and ef
ficient efforts to rntain in their hands the car
rying arid passage trade between Euland and
America. What we have said therefore, in re
gard to the good qualities of the Great West
ern, we deem still more applicable to steam
vessels of 4 larger class. Sho is of the burthen
of 1340 tons, we believe; and the result of our
observations and reflection is, that she is of the
Smallest tonnage that can ever prove profitable,
and that all well built boats, will be secure,
comfurtable, and profitable, just in the ratio of
their tonnage, taking three thousand tons as
a maximum. We are of opinion, that it .would
riot cost more than fifty per cent additional to
-navigate a steamer of three thousand tons than
it does the Great Western, while she would be
able to accommodate with perfect comfort, 25"
instead of 75 or 80 passengers, and instead of
being able to carry 159 tons nf merchandize,
v ould, without inconvenience to her passen
gers, very easily carry seven or eight hundred
tons possibly more. The great size of such
a vessel would very greatly increase her safe
ty, as it is well known that when clear of land
and rocks, the safety of a vessel from the ac
tion ofthe winds and the waves, is in propor
tion to her size. - And with retard to Bteam
power, two engines of three hundred horse
power each would propel a ship ot three thou
sand tons quite as rapidly as two of 2i5 horse
power would propel one of 1340 tons.' Thus
the British Queen, although five hundred tons
larger than "the Great Western" has two en-giii-S
of only 50 horse power each, and she
being of .1800 tons burthen and upwards, pro
bably engines of less than SOOliorse power each,
would be sufficient for a steamer of 8000 tons.
But' we take that power as a maximum, and
argue thai under no circumstances Would
the expenses of running a boat of 3000 tons be
fifty per cent greater than are the present, ex
penses of the Great Western. . . .
If then, we admit the security of ihe Great
Western, and of this (here can be no ' doubt,
and also her-ability to carry sufficient coal to
make the voyage across the Atlantic and, back
which we Know to be the fact -and if, not
withstanding her comparatively small size and
inability to accommodate as many passengers
as offer, or to carry more than 150- tons of 1
freight, it we say, under all these disadvan
tages, she is still doing a more profitable busi
ness than any vessel ever did before, can there
be a doubt of the far greater security and far
greater profit in a vessel of three thousand tons
or more, at but a slight increase of expenset
One bf the great objections on the part of
many to steam boats and steam slnpB, is the
apprehensions of the constant jarring motion
which all have experienced on our River boats.
But nothings of the, kind has ever been felt on
board the Great Western, or ever will be on
any steamer probaby built for navigating the
Atlantic. The reason is obvious.;; Instead of
being slightly constructed for River navigation
and speed, as are all our boats, the Great
Western is built as strong as wood and iron
can make her. One half of her entire length
in the centre, is - a solid . mass, of sixten inch
timber curked, traced and stayed with wood
and iron in every way that -ingenuity can de
vise ; and this effectually , prevents: the usual
tremulous motion of our steam boats.. Then
her engine works perfectly easy as good en
gines should, and the engines and boilers being
in. an iron-cased room to guard against ire,
neithei noise nor any disagreeable odour is ex
perienced in the cabins from this source. In
short, it was very justly said by her passengers
on one of her trips, that it is impossible to de
termine when sitting in, the saloon,- whether
her encineB are or are not in motion. .' ,
.: i But, say some of our capitalists, if the nav
igation ofthe Atlantic by steam is as profita
ble as is tronerallr reputed, how is it that Eng
lish capitalists evince an unwillingness to em
bark m the enterprise? . The answer is at hand,
and we know from capitalists themselves that
it js the true one 1 They -are: laboring Hinder
the full conviction that whenever we commence
building steamers, on this side of tho Atlantic,
they will be faster; better regulated, and bet
ter navigated i and consequently', that e shall
monopolize the business as we did the packet
business, and English boats will become nnpro
fitables. r :This is certainly t high compliment
'toAneric,entejrimi ; but it is richly- meri
tedand wa re Deal that we know this was the
only reason why the organization of a companjr
in lilverpool failed, - ena wny 111c urem t ch
tern Company hsvi not -commenced the two
additional steamers some months since deter
mined upon.- If the capitalists of England had
i.othixig to apprehend frorri our enterprise, the
keels of a -dozen -steamers of not' lens ttinn
twenty-five hundred w'i. would be. (aid within
as many weekT - .
-What then is to be done on 'this side of the
watert Where is the first steamer to be built!
Is the Commercial Emporium the City of ail
others most interested in this great movement
to be first in the field, or is she to sink into a
place of secondary consideration and give way
to the superior enterprize of the sister of Bro
therly Love? , For the honor and the interests
of New-York we hope not, nay,- when wo
know that the principle Packet House m tho
City has come forward with a degree of liber
ality which is onlv in knpnino- with its general
character, and v offered to - take one hundred
thousand, dollars of stock? of a boat of three
thousand tons, we cannot doubt but other
houses will promptly ' respond toheir offer,
and the keel of a vessel shortly' be kid. which
shall be unrivalled in size, strength and beauty.
That we can' build a more perfect hull in this
city, both for strength and beautythan in any
other port in the world, we believe there is no
earthly question; -it is equally certain that with
the great experience of our packet owners and
builders, we can arrange the accommodations
of such a steamer as we refer to. more judi
ciously; and lastly, we do not hesitate to say, -that
whenever the proper order is given for en
gines in which strength , beauty, and perfectioa
of machinery is to be consulted, : and not, tho
cost, we can construct quite as good engines
as the world cad produce. We have all the
materials the very best of foreign and native
mechanics Abundance of science and -even
more experience in the building of engines than '
iney nave aoroaa. . we are aware that at pre
sent we have no works at which shafts of tho
size oT those in the Quren and the Western cant
be made of. wrought iron, but this difficulty is
now in progress of bsing obviated by the con
struction ot a trip-hammer by Mr. Kbmblb at
his West Point Works, which will.be the hea
viest on either side ofthe water. " '- ?
These remarks have already become exten
ded far beyond what we proposed- when wo
commenced them: and we slioll therefore con
clude by an earnest appeal to the merchants of
tnis city to move immediately in this all-important
business. ' We are satisfied from our own
observations, that any merchant of fair stand
ing who will take the trouble of devoting ene
day to the subject, can raise more than suffi
cient funds for this great enterprise. But what
is every body's business is nobody's, and thus
an enterprize of such incalculable importance
of which every body is in favor, and which)
every body advocates, continues to be talked of.
only, from week to week, without any . thing;
being done to secure its accomplishment. This
should not be ; New-York owes it to herself;
her merchants owe it to themselves s to eeaso
talking and commence acting, . We should no
longer be subject to the reproach - of being
wanting in a proper spirit- ot enterprize ; but
we should take prompt measures to- demon-
strate that notwithstanding the crusade which
has been carried on against our' merchants,
they are still as fearless, as liberal,- and as en-.
terprising as they ever were. Let the Great
Western then, when next she returns to Eng
land, take with her the information that Now
York has commenced the great work ; and
the consequence will be, that wO shall hear of
no other keels being laid on the other side of
the water. But delay acting, and Boats will,
be built in England, which subsequently must
come in competition with us, and more or less
interfere with our profits; Our true policy is,'
to evince a determination at once to secure t
ourselves this trade, and thcrdby discourage-
every attempt to increase the number of boats
on the other side of the water. Let there be
action nd let the first news conveyed to tho
Great Western on her arrival here on Sunday
morning, the S3d inst. be the intelligence of
our having determined to build a steamer of
three thousand (ons, which shall in every res
pect, be worthy of continuing and securing to
the world, the benefits of an enterprise whicbs
she has so nobly demonstrated to be, expedU,
tiotis, safe, comfortable and lucrative. ,
