The aetiun of the convention is locidly pro-

To gire variety to tbe staid and loouctenous

assembled in the tail of the dog-days for an ami
cable political pic-nio in the way of plucking a
poor Connty Judge of the County of Oneidi,
who was a good deal of a politician and had the
bad luck to be found out. Let us drop In to tho
Senate Chamber and see the fun. Tn:; cham

accommodates the Senate cr thcte who aisemble
to witness its proceedings. There is no gallery,
and the only place allotted to spectators ii a
small space on the floor of the Senate chamber,
separated from the Senate by a low railinj. The
Senators are seated in a circle, which if often
alluded to in an allegorical way as " the ring"

Tbe Senator from the thud district ibereopoa
expresses Ike bop that lbe Senate will not do
any such thing. Be cannot belirve that the
Senate of tbe State of New York will refu.e to
wefcoiae that "great patriot" Andrew Johnson.
As be proceeds with bis diaooeirie. the Senator
became very earsfK ia hi eketaeace, nod runs
oer. with great apparent rVeliag. the Bat of tbe

hit devotion to hia coaotrv.
Then the Senator from the Tn-toiy-lnb, Sen

Then a Senator suns up in great anxiety, lo

When it comes t tbe turn of

TUB ATL VNTIC CAULK,
Recovery el tbe Cable cf 1SG.
The following intelligence announots tbe
sure-as of the expediilin sen: out to reclaim
the Atlantic cible of 1565. Tbe Great East
rn bad been on this mission twenty-four
J" "nJ nearly all parties bad abandoned
t'.eir hope of lbe sureess of tbo expedition
ot it has been e miplete nevertheless. Tbe
vtble of 1SC5 was recovered in eighteen
hundred fatlwins of water, in latitude 51 52
and longitude 30 03, or about seven bun
dred miles from Heart's Content. Tbo cable
was found to be in as good condition as It
waa when first payed oat. Communitation
wwi immediately bad between tbe b-j; ship
and Vakntia, the siznaL, being sent tbrou
with perfect accuracy. The intelligence of
tbis MicctM was reccividat Valcntia at forty
minutes pas: fire Sunday morning, and was
communicated through trie new cable to
Heart's Content, reaching the letter pjace at
forty-five minutes past six o'clock tbe same
morning. A splice was made with the cable
in the tank of the,Great Eastern, and that
vessel thereupon commenced luwering the
wire into tbo sea, ands now on her iourncy
towards Heart's Content. A constant com-
inunieMtijo is kept up from Heart's Content
with the Great Eastern through the cable
via Valentin, showing that the circuit though
tbe ocean is complete and perfect. The suc
cess is of as much importance as that of the
laying of tbo rcctnt cable.
On tbe 12th the Albany had booked tbe cable
previous to tbe Great Ettem coming np, and

lbe sirain on tba dynamometer increasing to
oineanaanaiftonsthattte came was hooked,
at ooe o'clock -very thinz was made ready to let
j go a large buoy with veerinirrope attached.
I Here the first disaster occurred, the splice
; between the grappling rope and the buoy rope
I buing drawn. Fortunately no one was injured.
; Acgait 17. At eleven o'clock, thip'a time,
the cable cams to tbe inrface at tn. v,-
of the Great Eastern, but while all were jongrat
ulating themselves on thii great roceeta the cable
slipped off the grappling! and ditappeared.
Oa the 1st it wat again secured as above re
counted and tha splice aide on Saturday.
