Recent Ens-lish advices inform ua that
the managers of the Atlantic telegraph
enterprise, undismayed by former fail
ures, are earnestly at worK, maturing
their plans for another attempt to lay
their cable between the old world and
the new. The present attempt will be
made in June, and the Great Eastern, as
before, will be employed in the undertak
ing, under command ot Captain Ander
son, while the details will be in cnarge
of the same gentlemen who directed the
operations last summer. As at present
arrnncwwl- til ft Great Knst.prn will Carrv
the new cable, will lay it to Newfound
land, and will there coal and return to
mid-Atlantic, where she will, with her
consorts, grapple for the lost end, the lo
cality of which can be ascertained within
a quarter of a mile, through the observa
tions taken last summer by Captain An
derson. It is not intended that the part
of the old cable which now lies in the
Great Eastern's tanks 6hall be again
stowed in her hold on the outward trip.
It will be carried in another vessel until
it is needed. The new cable which is to
be laid first, differs in appearance from
the last, will bear a strain of from fifteen
hundred to two thousand pounds more
than last year. The composition lor
coating the wires, used in the former ca
ble, is now dispensed with, the outer or
protecting wires of the new cable being
galvanized instead. About 160 miles
of this cable have been already made, and
when all the machinery is set to work,
as it soon will be, the manufacture will
proceed at the rate of 190 miles per
week. By working overtime this im
mense speed could be nearly doubled.
In all departments of the machinery the
capacity has been much increased since
last year. The following from the -London
Herald describes the method by
which it is hoped to grapple the cable
now lying on the bed of the ocean :
Three vessels, including the Great
Eastern, will be provided with grap
pling apparatus. Last year, it may be
remembered, the grappling was done
with makeshift appliances. In fact the
grappling lines were only buoy ropes,
and the swivels which broke while the
cable was being hauled up were never
intended to bear any snch strain as that
to which they were subjected. In the
new grappling tackle there will be no
swivels ; perhaps even no shackles.
Each line will be, if possible, in one
piece, certainly in not more than two
joined together by a strong schackle.
1 here is, therefore, little tear that it
the cable is grappled, of which there
can be no reasonable doubt in the mind
of any one conversant with the subject,
it will be brought to the surface. And
there is the more probability of this be
cause the cable will be grappled in three
places, at intervals of about two miles.
One vessel will grapple, and, if neces
sary, cut her end by means of a steel
blade set in the grappling iron; the
middle ship will haul up, and the tliird
vessel will also raise the cable to lessen
the strain. There will therefore be
tliree bights on the cable, or two bights
and an end, and this end will be pre
vented from slippiug by the formation
of the grappling iron, in which the ca
ble will be jammed. Xo one connected
with the project appears to entertain
the slightest doubt about the success of
this section of it. When the end is re
covered and a message sent through to
Valentia, as a test of the electrical con
dition, the splice will be made with the
cable now lying in the Great Eastern,
and then all will be plain sailing, except
in case of another accident similar to
that of last yeaF, when all would have
to be done over again ; but this would
be the worst damage. If one grappling
is successful there is no reason why a
second should not be, and even a third
and a lourth, if it should come to that,
The laying of the old cable may there-
tore be considered a certainty, so lar as
anything about cable laying can be
The Last Prisoner of "War. There ar
rived in this city last evening, on his way to
North-Carolina, the last of the Confederate
prisoners who had been confined at Fort
McHenry. His name is Hayton Davis, and
he served through the war as a member of
Barksdale's brigade of the Army of North
ern Virginia. He lost his leg in the battle
of Cedar Creek, October, 1864, and was
there captured. He was detained by the na
ture of his wound, and speaks in the most
grateful terms of the kind treatment received
from the United States officers and soldiers
at the fort. Petersburg Index.
Southerers in Boston. It is stated by
a gentleman at the South End, who deals
largely in real estate, that during the past
two months more than twenty first-class
dwelling-houses have been purchased by
Southerners. Many of these persons pretend
to have amassed a fortune during the late
war and have now come North to invest
their funds and to engage in permanent bus

Fred. Douglas's Oratory. The Nash
ville Banner is responsible for the following :
"We never heard Fred. Douglas speak but
once. He is a pretty sharp darkey, well in
formed, rather graceful and entirely ready.
On the occasion to which we allude, he spoke
in Independence Square, Philadelphia. His
harrangue was violent, made up chiefly of de
scriptions of the outrages practiced upon
the slave by his master, and produced a very
decided effect upon the crowd. Perceiving
this, Fred, took his advantage at the flood,
and went higher into the region of eloquence,
" Ah, my friends," he said, " I do not speak
from hearsay, I stand before you a living I
was going to say a bleeding witness to the
truth of all I relate. If you could behold
the stripes and scars upon my back" just
here an Irishman vociferated, "Hould on,
Freddy, darling is it truth you is telling
us?" The darkey orator lifted his finger
tragically to heaven in the affirmative. " Och,
murther, and did they lacerate you V Fred,
answered they did. . " Did they thumb-screw
y6u ?" " Yes." Did they buck you, like
a shoat ?" " Yes." " Bejabers" roared Pat,
" if that be true, you must have been a d d
bad nager 1" It closed the meeting in a gen

The following Act, in relation to the scaling of
Confederate Currency, from the time of its first
issue to the end of the war, passed at the recent
session of the General Assembly :
A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT TO
ESTABLISH A SCALE OF DEPRECIATION
OF CONFEDERATE CURRENCY.
Whereas, By an ordinance of the Convention,
entitled " An ordinance declaring what laws and
ordinances are in force, and for other purposes,"
ratified on the 18th day of October, A. D., 1865,
it is made the duty of the General Assembly to
provide a scale of depreciation of the Confederate
Currency from the time of its first issue to the
end of the war; and it is further therein declared
that " all executory contracts, solvable in money,
whether under seal or not, made after the depre
ciatiou of said currency before the 1st of May,
1865, and unfilled (except official bonds and penal
bonds payable to the Suite) shall be deemed to
have been made with the understanding that they
were solvable in money of the said currency,"
subject, nevertheless, to evidence of different in
tent of the parties to the contract ; therefore,
He it enacted by the General Assembly of the State
of .North-Carolina, and it is hereby enacted.bij the
authority of the same, That the following scale ot
depreciation be and the same is hereby adopted
and established as the measure ot value of one
trold dollar in Confederate currency, for each

Revenue Stamps may be used indiscriminately
upon any of the matters or things enumerated in
schedule B, except proprietary and playing card
stamps, for which a special use has been provided.
Jrostage stamps cannot be used in payment of
the duty chargeable on instruments.
It is the duty of the maker of an instrument to
aflix and cancel the stamp thereon. If he neglects
to do so, the party for whom it is made, may
stamp it before it is used ; and if used after the
30th of July, 1864, and used without a stamp, it
canuot afterwards be effectually stamped. Any
tuilure upon the part ot the maker ot an instru
ment to appropriately stamp it, renders him lia
ble to a penalty of two hundred dollars.
Suits are commenced in many States by other
process than writ, viz: summons, warrants, pub
lication, petition, ezc, in wiucn case these, as tne
original process, severally require stamps.
Writs of scira facias are subject to stamp duty
as original processes.
The jurat ot an auidavit, taken Dciore a justice
of the Peace, Notary Public, or other oflieei duly
authorized to take affidavits, is held to be a cer
tificate, and is subject to a stuufp duty of five
cents, except when taken in suits of legal proceed
ings. Certificates of loan in which there shall appear
any printed or written evidence of an amount of
money to be paid on demand or at any time de
signated, are subject to stamp duty as Promisory
The assignment of a mortgage is subject to the
same duty as thut imposed upon the original in
strument ; that is to say for ever- sum of five
hundred dollars, or any fractional part thereof, of
the amount secured by the mortgage, at time of
its assignment there must be affixed a stamp or
stamps, denoting a duty of five cents.
When two or more persons join in the execution
of au instrument, the stamps to which this instru
ment is liable under the law, may be affixed aud
cancelled by one of the parties.
In conveyances of real estate, the law provides
that the stamp affixed must answer to the value
of the estate on interest conveyed.
No stamp is required on any warrant of attor
ney accompanying a bond or note, when such
bond or note has affixed thereto the stamp or
stamps denoting the duty required, and whenever
any bond or note is secured by mortgage, but one
stamp duty is required on such papers, such
stamp duty being the highest rates required for
such instruments, or either of them. In such a
case a note or memorandum of the value or de
nomination of the staniD affixed should be made
upon the margin or in the acknowledgement of
the instrument wmcn is not stamped.
