Hlatory of Use Atlantic TelsrapU 15
Since the consummation or the moet
nificent enterpr'we that ban ever engaged the
attention of mankind the layinp tlovrn of an
electric telegraph under the Atlantic ocean,
whereby the community of Earth's nations
re drawn within the tompan of no many
towni-bips, and the int llipence of the world
is brought within the brief circuit of a small
neighborhood a succinct history of its origin
and progre cannot fail to be highly enter
taining. We have therefore grouped the prin
cipal facts below.
The original idea of thus connecting the
Old and New Worlds was probably conceived
by Trof. Samuel V. B. Moiwe, to whom man
kind is indebted for the Electrc -Magnetic
Telegraph. In bis efforts to establish a line
of this telegraph between Washington and
lialU'more, in 1843. bin experiments verified
the theory of Ohm, that electric currents
were transmissible to almost any conceivable
'Stance, with proper conductors and insula
tion. Accordingly In a letter to the then
Secretary of the Treasury, Hon. Jou.v C.
fencer, he wrote :
"Hit practical inference from tiii law u that a
telegraphic communication on the tLcrtro-magnefic
pLun, may. with certainty, be tstaUithed acroxs ttt
Atlvitk ocean! Startling a tint may now item, I
am confident the time trill come when thit project
will be re-ilued."
Thi letter was dated on the 10th of Au
gust, 1813, and was probably the first public
scrioua expression, of the possible telegraphic
communication between the opposite sides of
trie Atlantic. ' The newspapers in the princi-
il cities of the country nulisiquenlly, and
a;"ter various lines had leen established, took
up the subject, and speculated upon it with
various degrees of earnestness and levity;
but uone of them, though now claiming great
credit to themselves in this behalf, advocated
it with a very zealous faith in its speedy con
Humiliation. Perhaps the only exception to
this remark is found in the Cincinnati Com-
iiwrcud, whose founder and editor, L. G. Ci K-
tiss, Esq., now deceased, as early as 1845,
d -voted bis pen to the subject with great zeal,
Hilda little later, the winter of 1816-7, ad
dressed a letter to Congress, retting forth the
practicability of a submarine Telegraph, and
a etition askiug for power to form a com
puny, with the view of extending the mug
uetic cable across the Atlantic. So sanguine
was he that his plans were feasible, that be
declared '.he ocean ' designed in part fur
t legraphic purposes." No notice was taken
by Congnt-s. of Ibis lettrand pelition; and
I hey were noticed by the pres. only as furn
ishing wlmt they conceived abroad joke, or a
In August 1850, the possibility of trans
mitting the electric current over submerged
wires, was fully demonstrated, by the suc
cessful working of a line acroi-s the strait of
lovcr, from Dover, in England, to Calais, in
France, a distance of 24 mile?. Two years
later, another line was successfully established
from Dover to Ostend, in Belgium. 75 miles
long. Then one of 115 miles, connecting
England and Holland; and another, in 1855,
across the Black Sea, between Varna and
Baluklava, 340 miles liesides several other
shorter lines, making, up to the yeur 1857, au
aggregate of 950 miles of submariae tele
graph in successful operation.
In tliu midst of these attempts, not one of
which had failed, the idea of an Atlantic Tel
egraph began to Mime the air of wilier rea
son. It was early in the month of March
1854, that the stupendous enterprise we lire
now considering, w hose sucreKS is now tilling
the civilized world with mingled exultation
and joy, awe and astonishment, was broached
and agreed upon. A coterie of friends, din
ing with Mr. Crai'8 W. Field, to whose en
ergy and perseverance the enterprise is so
much debtor for its success, engaged in a
general conversation on the subject, examined
mops and agreed to the formation of an asso
ciation for the purpose. The gentlemen present
were Crura W. Field, his brother, I). IUpi.ey
Field. Samif.l F. B. Mouse, Petek Coopeic,
Moses TAn.oit, Mak.su al O. Rohf.hts and
CnAMuoit White. It was concidered that
Newfoundland uus the best suited as the in
itial poiut of the line on the American side,
and the two Fields and Mr. White, proceed d
without delay, to that Island, where they ar
rived on the 20th March 1854, and applied
, for and obtained from the colonial govern
ment, an act of incorporation for the "Xew
York, Newfoundland and iAjnilon Telegraph Com
pany." This act granted them the exclusive
privilege for fifty years of running a telegraph
across that island and through any of the ad
jacent waters; alsoau appropriation of twenty
live thousand dollars for the construction of
a bridle path over the southern portion of the
country, which was considered indispensable
for the regulation and repair of the telegraph;
guarantied the interest on two hundred and
fifty thousand dollars of the Com puny 'h bonds
for twenty years, and a present of fifty square
miles of laud, which the compuuy bad the
liberty of selecting in any part of the inland.
On the returu of these gentlemen to New
York from Newfoundland the company was
regularly organized under the al-ove name,
with Peter Cooper, President; S, F. B. Morse,
Vice President; Moses Taylor, Treasurer;
Chandler While, Secretary; David Dudley
Field, Counsel; and E. N. Gioborne, Engi
neer. The Directors were Peter Cooper,
Cyrus W. Field, Mopes Taylor, Marshal O.
Roberts and Chandler White. The capital
Btock of the Company was fixed at $1,750,
000, and the whole was subucrilxjd for, one
hundred and one shares in London, eighty
eight in America, eighty-six in Liverpool,
thirty-seven iu Glasgow, tweuty-etght iu Msu
chester. and the remainder in other parts of
England. The Company now proceeded to
the work before them in good earnest, first
laying a submarine cable across the Gulf of
St. Lawrence, connecting Newfoundland with
the American shore, and perfecting the line
thence to New York.
In order to induce English capitalists to
contribute to the undertaking, It was taought
expedient to incorporate a new company iu
England for the purpose of establishing the
abmariue Hue between New Foundland and
Ireland; ami Mr. Cyrus W. Field went to
England and succeeded in organizing that
company under the tiauie ol "The Atlantic
Telegraph Company," the two companies
binding themselves together by articles of
agreement to operate iu connection. Indeed
the two companies may now be considered,
Cor all practical purposes, as one.
The governments of Great Britain and the
United States gave the compuuy essential aid
in a subsidy of $7 0,000 each per annum, aud
la detailing national vesst U to lake devp ac
soundings along the rout of the proposed
line of telegraph wire. These sounding were
made by Lieut. Bl-krymin iu the U. S. sur
veying vessel Arctic, aud by Capt. DaPtiax In
the British ship Cyclop. These soundings
were mode, according to the report of Lieut.
Berryman, at intervals of thirty, forty, sixty
n& one hundred miles, all attended with
complete suceew, and showed the exUUnce of
plateau the entire distance, quite even and
possessed of the most ravorjble conditions for
the successful laying and forking of a tele
graphic cable. Tbe bottom of the ocean
along the line is composed f shells so minute
as not to be perceptible to e naked eye, and
being wholly free from sanl and gravel, it is
argued that there are n jnrrenta sweeping
this part of the ocean's bed. The depth is
also highly favorable, being only two thou
sand and eighty fathom, at the deepest point.
These governments also detailed national
vessels to lay down the cable. Tbe Company
thris avoided this great expense, excepting
only one steamer. The fleet thus detailed
consisted as follow :' "
1. The U. S. steam frigste Niagara, Cap
tain Hudson, to lay the half of the cable from
2. The IT. S. steam frigate Susquehanna,
Captain Snnds, to attend upou the Niagara,
3. Th U.S. steamer Arctic, Captain Berry
man, to miik further soundings on the coast
4. The T b-graph Company's steamer Vic
toria, Capt. Slnyter, to assist in landing the
cable at Newfoundland.
5. H. M. steamer Agamemnon, Capt. Nod
dall. to lay the half of the cable on the Amer
6. IT. M. steamer Leopard. Captain Wain
wright, to attend upon the Agamemnon.
7. II. M. steamer Cyclops. Captain Dap
man, to go ahead of the steamers and keep
8. The fteamrr Advice, Captain Raymond,
to assist in the landing of the cable at Ya
lentia. The engineers and electricians of the Com
pany, Prof. Morse, Mr. Bright. Prof. Thomp
son, Mr. J. C. Laws, Mr. Appold, Mr. Amos.
Mr. Woodhouse, Prof. Whitehouse, Mr. Can
ning. Mr. De Santy and Mr. Clifford, were
divided between tne two principal steamers,
for the purpose of conducting the paying out,
and directing the operation of the complicated
machinery. The force on board the Niagara
consisted of 287 officers and men, C7 men in
the Engineer corps, and 50 in the Marine
guard, making a total of 404. The force on
the Agamemnon was slightly larger.
The Company next solicited the advice of
that modern Neptune, M. F. Maihy, as to the
best time for laying the cable, and as an evi
dence of the extraordinary accuracy of his
research, we subjoin an extract from bis re
ply, lie wrote:
Nevertheless, the enterprise upon which
you are engaged is an important one. Good
weather tor it is very dirahle, nay, almost
indispensable; and these barometric anomalies
are very suggestive. Perhaps it would be
ise for the steamers not to join cables until
after the 20th of July. I think between that
lime ami the 10ih of August thestate of both
sea and air is u-ually iu the most favorable
condition possible; and that is the time my in
vextignlions indicate as the most favorable fi r
la iug down the wire. I recommend it, and
wish you good luek."
These preliminaries being setted, the com
pany proceeded to contract for the necessary
cable, and by July. 1857, Messrs. Glass, Elli
ott t Co.. of England, the contractors, had
completed 2500 miles of tested cable, ready
for the vessels which were to lay it. The ca
ble consisted of seven copper telegraph wires,
covered by three coats of gutta percha, those
in turn by six strands of yarn, and upon the
outside eighteen strands composed of seven of
the liest of charcoal iron wires. The whole
was 1 1-1 6ths of an inch in diameter, weighed
18(i0 pounds to the mile, and was capable of
sustaining six miles of its own leugth, if sus
pended vertically. The aggregate length ol
the smaller wires required in the manufacture
of one mile of cable was 12G miles, so that
378.000 miles were used in the composition of
3000 miles of cable prepared for the attempt
of the present year. It had been determined
that Valentin Bay, on the South-west coast of
Ireland, and Trinity Bay, Newfoundland, j
should be the termini of this great ocean line
of telegraph. And it was resolved after
much d.-bate, that the paying out of the cable
should begin at Valentia B.iy, from thencvto
mid-ocean paying out the cable on board the
Niagara, and paying out the Agamemnon's
share on American side.
All being in readiness, the fleet sailed from
Plymouth. England, about the 1st of August,
1857. ii in I on the evening of the Oth the shore
end for Vnientia Bay was landed with formal
ceremonies, iu which the Lord Lieutenant, the
church dignitaries, nobility and gentry of Ire
land, in large numliers, participated. On the
morning of the 7th the fleet set sail, and ev
erything went on well till the fifth day out,
tbe 11th, when, by application of the brakes,
at the wrong time, so great a strain was put
on the cable that it broke. It was found that
334 miles of cubic hail beeu payed out, leaving
on board the vessel 1817 miles, or a surplus
of 207 miles over the distance between the
terminus at Ireland and Newfoundland; but!
this was deemed an insufficient quantity with
which to proceed to a second to trial at one;
and the fleet returned to Plymouth, where the
cable was unshipped and packed away in tar,
pitch, linseed oil and beeswax. And thus
ended the first attempt. It is well reinem-Is-red
how universal was the regret over the
failure. The actual cost of the cable bad
l;en $485 per mile, Wiiich made a total for
the 2500 miles, of SI. 2 12,500 which was in
creased to $1,258,250, by extra cable for the
shore ends. The finances of the company
were thus measurably ntisorhcd, and many
sjMculations were rile and popular through
out the world, that the project was wholly
impracticable and futile, "and that any further
attempt would prove a failure. The company,
was, of course, much disheartened; but Mr.
Field infused into it some of the sanguine
hope which be himself felt; and it was re
solved to order 1000 miles more of cable,
with a view to proceeding with another trial
in 1858. An increuse of the capital stock of
the Company was asked for, and granted by
Parliament, to the extent of an additional
million dollars. Mr. Field, duriug the winter,
was made manager and general agent of the
company, lie procured, 'y consent or the
L'uitetl Stttt.-u Covt-rtlinvnt for bin Chief Ktt-
gineer, Mr. M. E. Ever. tt. of the l S. Corps
of Engineers, who proceeded to make most
valuable improvements in the paying out ma
chinery, as did the electricians in their appa
ratus. The Niagara and Agamemnon were
again detailed for the service, together with
the British steamers Valorous, Gorgon aud
Porcupine, the Susquehanna having been
withdrawn, on account of the yellow fever,
which attacked her officers and crew while on
service iu the West Indies Wt spring.
it was now determined to adopt the plan of
paying out the cable from both tbipt at the
the same time. About the first of June the
vettseltf made anexjerimet)Ul trip to deep wa
ter olf the coast, and mudo a series of experi
ment iu this maimer, with the cable that had
U'en submerged in the first attruipt. last year,
which proved satisfactory. Iteturning aud
getiiug all things iu readiness, on the 10th of
Juae, without any public demonstration, like
that of laat year, tbe fleet left England, for
the purpt.se of again laying the Vlcgraphic
cable aecrosa the Atlantic. The pWut uf ren
dezvous was, latitude 5 J -5 9 North. 1 oagi lude
32.27 U'ent from Greenwich. TLe passage
out was very stormy, and the Aramemuon
nearly fuuudered, but on the 2Gth uf Jane the
cable was spliced and the paying out w as
commenced. Au accideut to the machinery
on board the Niagara kuap-l tbf cable be
fore the vpmm-U were ta o tulles spirt. Tbej
spliced again the same day and iroce-4"4.
AUmiI oue o'clock n the uiorniug tf the JIUi,
about forty miles baring Iteeit ptid ont, the
cable again broke, aud no x plans lo i vt tbe
breakage has yet beeo ottered. On the ifcih
the Veil again met. spilcrd the a-ire, pro
ceeded on. their wtji, aud every i!ai worked
well till the night of the 23, b, Vxi ajotr
break occurred, and tbe vessels returned to
Queenstown, Ireland. In this last trial about
290 miles of the cable were lost, in about e
qual portions from the Niagara and the Aga
memnon; yet there still remained about 2500
miles. Tbe news of this last disaster soon
reached this country, and was generally re
garded as the harbinger of another, and per
haps a total and final failure of tbe scheme of
obtaining telegraphic communication between
tbe old and the new world. As soon as the
news reached London, the stock of the com
pany fell fifty percent, and indeed it was un
saleable at any price. But the body, soul and
spirit of the enterprise, Mr. Field, w as not
yet overcome. He still retained confidence,
under Providence, in the success of his efforts.
The distance between Valentia and Trinity
Bays was only 1650 miles. He bad onboard
bis ships 2500 miles of cable. His orders
were to coal the vessels as speedily as possi
ble, and to "try again." 3TU dtfperandum,
multum optandum. It may have been the last
desperate struggle for a fortune, otherwise
lost; for fame, otherwise Fhame. Or it may
have been a calm and unshaken reliance in
the eternal and unchangeable laws of God.
and an undying trust in their blessings to man
when rightly understood and applied. Who
shall say? At all events, on the morning of
the 17th July, that same fleet left Queens
town for the rendezvous. On the 23;d the
Niagara arrived again at Lat. 52.59, Long.
32.27, W. One by one tbe others came plow
ing the deep. On Thursday. July 29th. they
were all in sight, and in mid-ocean, with no
human eye to scan, none to applaud, none to
express distrust, nothing but the waters,
against which the grand struggle, lM-neath,
and the protecting Almighty alove, at 1
o'clock P. M. the splice was made, and tbe
ships parted company the Agamemnon with
813 nautical miles before her to Valentia Bay,
and the Niagara with 822 miles before her to
Trinity Bay. Twice, in the course of the voy
age, the signals, between the ships were inter
rupted; but these proved to be temporary,
being attributable to kinks in the cable on
board. The days passed without accident.
The storms and tempests of old ocean seemed,
for once, to be awed iuto silence; and at 1.45
A. M., of August 5th the Niagara anchored in
Trinity Bay. At 2.45 A. M., same day. a sig
nal was received from the Agamemnon that
bhe had payed out 1010 miles of the cable
and was safely in the harbor of Valentia. Iu
the language of Mr. Field, as used in his di
ary, -'At 5.15 A. M., the telegraph cable was
landed. At 6 A. M. the shore end of the ca
ble was carried into the telegraph house, and
a strong current of electricity was received
through the whole cable, from the other side
of the Atlantic. Capt. Ilrnso.v then read
prayers and made some remarks;" and in that
of his despatch to the United States, "The
Cahi.k is srccEssFrLLY laid."
From the above history it appears that this
unparalleled achievement is American in its
conception, and mainly so in its execution a
fact which cannot fail to lie grateful to the
popular heart of America. And while the
world at large is celebrating the event with
)onfires and illuminations and rejoicings, we
may justly experience a feeling of exultation
which can reach the hearts of no other peo
ple. Already has America given to-the rest
of mankind most of the inventions and dis
coveries that have revolutionized the com
merce of nations, qulcked the intellct, eleva
ted the social nature, liberalized government
and accelerated the course of the world in all
the wonderful avenues of progress. And
now she sends the electric flash, as subtle and
rapid us thought, along the led of the ocean,
to the ends of the earth. Whatever may le
the immediate effect or the ulterior tendency
of the Atlantic Telegraph, there can be no
question as to its stupendous magnitude, and
its brilliancy as a triumph of scieuce and hu
man intelligence and energy over the ele
ments of nature. It forms au era in the
course of time that will illumine the page of
this day's history with a splendor and mag
nificence nnapproaclnd by the Past, and prob
ably unapproachable by the Future.
The I'lrxt Native Wine.
B. Buchanan reports ii- the Horticulturist
the following incident concerning the first
experiment iu Wine making at the West:
My friend. Dr. S. told me that about thirty
years a"o, when our native wines were much
taked of, but scarcely known, he was invited
by a hospitable farmer of a neighlioring State
to dine with him: and, amongst other induce
ments, was promised a glass of native wine
the "pure juice of the grape."' At dinner the
wine was produced it was of a fine red color,
like claret or Burgundy. There," said his
host, -is something that I am proud of, for I
made it myself, and know it to le a pure
article none of your foreign mixed stuff."
The Doctor took a good taste of it. made a
wry face, and set his glass down, remarking
that it was unlike any wine he had ever
tasted." I fear," said his friend, ''you don't
like it; but 3 011 need not be afraid todriuk it,
for it is a genuine native wine, and I pledge
you my, word it is the 'pure juice of the
grape,' without a particle of sugar, or a drop
of water in it. I assisted myself to gather
the grapes, of the best varieties, from the
woxls, had the hunches packed up carefully
in a new, cleen barrel, and filled it with u lufhy
the best old Courbon I could find to ex
tract the grape juice. ir that is nrt tne native,
I don't know what is." The Doctor suggest
ed that it might be native enough, but was
not wine." -Nonsense," said bis friend,
'have I not made 'peach cordial' that way
many a time; and why not wine?" It was a
long time before the Doctor ventured to
taste unother gloss of native wine made in

Blevins was undoubtedly one of th finest

a marked position iu bis profession, the law,
and ranking among the most tab-nted aud

Remarkable Cure of m Lunatic.
The Cleveland Herald of Monday last con
tains tbe following very interesting account
of a surgical operation apon a lunatic, which
resulted in the entire restoration of his reason.
Tbe man was thrown from a wagon, about
five years since, fracturing bis skull against a
fence stake, the injury bringing on violent
derangement, which became permanent. - He
vras taken to the Lunatic Asylnm. where he
remained a considerable time, until be was
discharged as incurable, aud finally remanded
to the county jail, where remained for about
a year past. His wife engaged the services
of Dr. Thayer, to attempt the cure of her un
fortunate husband. After examining the
case, Dr. T. found a portion of the skull much
depressed, and resolved tn remove it. On
entering tbe cell for that purpose, on Friday,
the man became greatly enraged, and poured
out volleys of execrations on the doctor, as
though he was aware of the business he came
on. At the order of Jaib r Frazee, the lun
atic laid down on his b d, when be was im
mediately confined, and copious doses of chlor
oform administered nntil be became perfctly
insensible. Tbe depressed portion of the
skull forming a piece a little larger than a
quarter of a dollar which bad been pres
sing on the brain, was then taken out, and
found to have thickened considerably on one
side. The bead was then bound with a band
age, saturat d with water, and the patient
left to recover from his stupor.
On Saturday morning be awoke, rose from
bis bed and walked up and down the room,
perfectly rational. He complained that the
bandages, which for some reason that he didn't
und- rstand had been put on bis head, hurt
him, and asked the attendant if they might
be loosened. As soon as relieved from the
pressure, he lay down on bis bed and fell
asleep On his again awaking, he was asked
if he would like his wife to see him. She had
a child but a few days before his accident,
and he now expressed a doubt whether she
would be able to get out of bed. On her en
tering, be was astonished to find le-r so well
after her recent illness, and feared that her
health would suffer from exposing hsrself so
early. He asked after the child and wished
to see it, but was put off with an evasive
answer until it was thought advisable to ex
plain matters to him. He then commenced
talking of things that happened five years
ago, as if having occurred but yesterday. It
was a long time before be could le made
aware of his long illness and insanity, and,
when at last convinced of it, statt d that he
had 110 recollection of anything other than a
misty kind of dream about his being sick.
He recommended his wife to go home to her
friends until he was well, as her stay iu
Cleveland nould be expensive, and talked
perfectly rational on other subjects. He is
now in a fair way of recovery, ami will pro
bably do well unless inflammation should
1'lie Eflectaortlie Cable ou the move
ments of tottou.
Mr. Wm. P. Wright, iu bis circular to bis
correspondents per steamer Europa. which
sailed from Boston Wednesday last, remarks
as follows, upon the effect of the Atlantic
telegraph cable upon the movements of
The business in cotton during the past week
has almost ls en suspended, on foreign ac
counts, by the excitement attendant upon the
announcement that the 'Atlantic telegraph
cable has been successfully laid." Great
anxiety exists in the cotton trade to see the
working of the cable, as it must cause con
siderable change in the mode of transacting
business in future. The ctnrt of this new
agency will be the equalization ol market-',
and diminished chances for those serious losses
which periodically occur iu the Liverpool
cotton trade. A new system of purchasing
to arrive, in Liverjiool. by classification or
sample, will soon be adopted, and there will
be an increase of the transitu business in
this city. New York will receive less cotton
direct from the South, except from points
where there is no other outlet, but her
position as a cotton centre will le vastly
i m pro veil by the receipt of orders from the
manufacturers of England and France.
Spinners and others in Europe will soou
ihscover bow much their interest can be
served by the free use of the telegraph, and
how admirably adapted the transit business
of New York is in ordering cotton to arrive
with them at once, iu a month, or in two or
three months, there by making a large saving
in interest, and enabling tin-in to secure at
once a supply of the raw material, to till even
extensive contracts for g'Ksls aud yams. The
transitu busins of this city bus been found
to work well for four or live years, aud is now
capable of great increase, and it may not lie
too bold to predict that the day is not far
lintantwheu the bulk of the cotton trade
between Europe and America will be transac
