BALTIMORE, October 15, 1858.
The Stock market lias been exceedingly ([uiet
this week, and the transactions have been smaller
than lor a long time past, amounting in the aggre
gate to only about $150,000, and showing a tailing
off since last week of $115,000. Stocks of all kinds,
however, have been firm, and we note an advance
of about $1 per share in Baltimore and Ohio Rail
road since Friday of last week. This stock opened
on Saturday last with sales at $55% buyer 5 days,
$55% regular way, and improved regularly through
out the week. To-day the market was quite ac
tive. 810 shares selling at [email protected]% buyer (10 and
54 days, and $59 regular way and short time con
tracts, closing at $58% bid, 559 asked, regular way,
% higher than yesterday. The sales during the
week are rather upwards of 1,800 shares. North
ern Central has been very quiet, the total sales of
the week reaching only 041 shares. Prices have
advanced about % since last week, the sales to day
comprising 135 shares at $21% buyer GO and s2l
regular way, leaving oil' at $20% bid, s2l asked,
rash, showing no change since yesterday. Bank
Stocks are quiet and lirin, with very little doing
this week. Such sales as were made were at fully
former_rates. To-day there was nothing done.—
Canton has advanced fully $1 since last week. The
only sale this week was 50 shares buyer 30 days at
$19%. It closed to-day without transactions at
S2O bid, cash. Springfield Mining has been quiet,
$2.31 being bid to-day with $2% asked.
In State Loans we are without any transactions
to report. For Maryland o's, 1890, $103% was bid.
Baltimore city G's are steady, SOOB 1890's selling to
day at 98%, the advance for the week being about
%. Baltimore and Ohio Railroad bonds arc firm
and also show an advance of about %. There were
no transactions to-day; forlßß7's9l was bid; 1875's
85% bid; 1880's 84 bid; 1885's 82% bid, 83 asked.
Northern Central 1885's closed firmly to-day at G8
bid, at which rate they have been steady through
out the week. North Western Virginia have ad
vanced, $3,000 Ist mortgage selling' to-day at 98%;
for unendorsed 3d mortgage 32 was bid.
We have no change to note in the Money market
this week. The offerings at the Banks are very
moderate, and all good paper is readily discounted.
The.street rate for first class endorsed paper is 6
per cent., and for second class [email protected] per cent. Call
loans on prime collaterals arc easily negotiated at
G per cent.
The total value of the foreign exports from the
port of Baltimore for the week ending on Thursdav,
is $183,910, included in which are 9,71s bbls. flour,
1,380 bbls. corn meal, 810 bushels corn, and 1,546
lihds. tobacco. There was no wheat exported. The
total value of foreign imports for the week is SIBO,-
014 , of which 8118,560 were free goods, and $G8,054
dutiable.
The New York stock market shows very little
change to-day, but it closed weak. New York
Central fell off %: Reading %; Cleveland and To
ledo %; Rock Island %; Michigan Southern %;
and Harlem %. Both Erie and Panama were steady
at yesterday's prices.
The New York Tribune of to-day says:
The money market exhibits increased ease. The de
mand for first claSk paper is far in excess of the supply,
and money is otferrd nil call even at lower rates than have
been ruling. We hear of exceptional transactions as low
as 2 per cent., but the current rates are 3(o)4 per cent.—
The leading stock houses have more money offered them
at these rates than they can safely and profitably use.—
First class paper, four and six months, is easily passed at
4</ 5 per con-, many of the banks being buyers at these
rates. Some very leading sixty days acceptances have
l>ecn passed at 3 per cent. It appears now to be unad
mitted fact that the present easy state of the financial
world will continue until next Spring, if not until 18G0.
In regard to Dry Goods, The Independent says:
"The demand for goods during the last two weeks has
been steady, without great activity. The city jobbers are
busy, and many have been replenishing their stocks with
the most desirable goods. There have been greater pur
chases made by Western merchants, which has been a
feature of the week. French dress silks are in good de
mand, as well as the best styles of robes. Ribbons also
have been in greater request in Fall styles—red, purple
and blue—although prices are yet low. Woolen goods are
all in super abundant stock, with a light demand and much
heaviness in price. The importations keep up, while there
is no lack of foreign goods, whatever there may be of cus
tomers. The importations of cotton goods are compara
tively light; while those of silk and woolens are very
large. For the month of September, the value of silk
fabrics imported was $2,077,700: that of woolens. $1,910,-
232; while that of cotton goods was only $881,692. In
domestic goods there has been considerable movement,
but the week closed with diminished activity. Cotton
goods are less steady in price. Prints and delaines sell
readily. Desirable styles and qualities of fancy cassimeres
are sought after, and command good prices, but others are
dull and heavy. The supply is large. Business from this
date will, as usual, decline rapidly/' "
The London Times of 29th September says:
In American securities there was a recovery of $2 in Il
linois Central; New York gnd Erie, and Pennsylvania Cen
tral were likewise better. A rise of # per cent, occurred
in New Brunswick Government Bonds. No bargains were
recorded in Atlantic Telegraph, but the nominal quotation
improved to 330 h 360.

REVIEW OF THE WILMINGTON MARKET.—FOR THE
WEEK ENDING OCTOBER 13.— TURPENTINE— Has slightly
advanced since our last review, and we now quote at $3 10
for virgin and yellow dip, and 1.75 for new hard, per 280
lbs. old hard at this season is put at half the price of yel
low dip, which is 1.55 per 280 lbs. Receipts have been

mon there has been nothing done, ami the market has
ruled quiet. We have not heard of a single transac

vessels.

ceipt and sale since our last of 145 bbls., which chauged
hands at $2 per bbl.—being an advance of 30 cents.; at
which price parcels would sell readily.

GLOUCESTER FLSH MARKET, Oct. 13.-Mackerel,
buyers disposed to purchase at last rates, but holders firm
at high< r prices. But few at rivals are now expected from
the Bay until the close of the season and the prospects are
that none will bring full fares. The season's catch must
necessarily be short. Last sale $12)6, 10and 8)6; held
at $13,11 and S)6. Codfish in good demand, sales at $3.75.
Oil sls 50.
BOSTON BOOT AND SHOE MARKET.—The market
remains very quiet, ami although an occasional Western
or Southern buyer is to be seen here, but very few goods
are moving off in any direction. It has been generally
supposed by our dealers that the Western trade would be
obliged to buy more largely, as but few goods have been
shipped to that section this season; the prospect now,
however is, that there will he but little more doing in that
department of the trade. The prices of all kinds of West
ern produce are declining, and the late foreign advices
only serve to exert a still more depressing influence. The
low prices obtained for Hour and grain on the seaboard,
will be a severe blow to the country towns of the West,
where the effects of the pressure of last year still continue
to be felt.
With the South, the trade has this year been very satis
factory, and probably the larger part of the orders now
making up here are for that market Southern staples
are advancing in price, and reports from that quarter are
favorable for the usual demand.
Most of the manufacturers are working to a limited ex
tent; orders remaining on hand are being filled as fast as
possible, and goods will soon begin to be stored for the
Spring trade. It will be well for all who can conveniently
do so, to limit their operations; stock is at present too
high to risk the manufacturing largely of any kind of
goods. A considerable accumulation would undoubtedly
depress prices. We are glad to be able to state that but a
small stock of goods has been left over this season; which
fact, in the face of a limited demand, shows a commenda
ble degree of caution on the part of our manufacturers.—
Some of them are now turning their attention to making
up for the California trade. If advices be favorable, con
siderable quantities of goods will be forwarded to that
market during the next month.
Among the shipments for the week we notice 941 cases,
ship Wiufield Scott, for San Francisco, October 9th, and
11 cases per Colcord, for Port Spain, Trinidad, Septem
ber 11.
There have lcen two public sales since our last, at which
613 cases were sold for $13,229.

CITY INTELLIGE
THE RACES.— The races over the Central Course
were resumed yesterday, after a cessation of three
days in consequence of the unfavorable state of the
weather. The day proved a most auspicious one,
and although the track was rather soft and heavy,
the first race ot the day, a three-mile one, proved
an excellent one, and tiie best of the kind ever run
over this track. The attendance was better than
upon the first day, though limited, considering the
character of the horses entered. The best of order
prevailed, and everything passed of in the incst
gratifying manner—excepting to those who bet 011
the horses that didn't win.
The first race was for a purse of $500: three
mile heats; the entries being-
I'. C. Bush's eh. mare I'arachute.
it. 11. Dickinson's eh. horse Gov. Wickliffe.
J. Campbell's ch. mare Laura Spillman.
V. M. Hall's g. g. One Eyed Joe.
The last named horse being lame, did not start.
Ihe judges for this race were Messrs. Win. 11.
Lowell, of Baltimore, Jacob l'owder, of Maryland,
and Chas. Goddard, of Baltimore.
Upon a toss for the pole Parachute was the win
ne m*i ' VI Laura next, and the horse on the outside.
These horses all came to the score in apparently
the best condition, the horse being the favorite, and
his performance justified the good opinion of his
friends and backers, as he won the race—leading
home in both the second and third heats. The bet
ting, however, previous to the start, was rather
light.
Ftret Heat.— The horses got off well together upon
the first trial, and ran close to the half-mile post,
which was passed bv Parachute and Gov. Wickliffe
neck and neck, with Laura one length in the rear.
They entered upon the home stretch in about the
same positions, hut when half way down the horse
quit company with Parachute, and he passed tiie
stand two lengths in the lead, Laura being also led
the same distance by Parachute, and the mile being
made in 1.59. On the second mile, before reaching
the quarter post, Parachute changed positions with
the horse, and (passed the post one length in the
lead, under a hard pull, the horse leading Laura
about the same distance. They ran thus without
any material change to the home stretch, when
Laura closed with the horse and showed the spirit to
take the lead of both, hut Parachute's rider gave
her the rein and she soon opened a gap of two
lengths, when Laura again fell one length to the
rear of the horse, and thus they passed the stand in
1-57. Before reaching the quarter post on the third
mile, W icklifie made a noble dash'and closed with
Parachute, and they passed the post neck and neck,
both horses running steadily, though evidently at
their best speed, while Laura followed, with a gap
of four lengths intervening. Thus they continued
to the home stretch, having run the halt' mile with
out a variation of over half a length. At the head
of the homestretch, Parachute,with a mighty effort
which astonished all, showed speed which opened a
gap of two lengths before reaching the stand, and
which she thus passed, amid the shouts of both her
own and the horse's friends. Laura fell behind so
far on the home stretch as to barely escape being
distanced. This mile was run in I.s9—the entire
heat being run in 5.52.
This heat did not vary the betting to any extent,
a.-', although Parachute showed both good bottom and
speed, her having been injured a short time since,
created doubts of her sustaining herself thus nobly
throughout another heat. At the end of thirty
minutes, the horses haying cooled off well, they
came up again for the
Second lint. —They again got a good send off
upon the first trial, with Wickliffe slightly in the
lead, hut all running close until they had passed the
quarter post, when Wickliffe opened a gap of one
length and thus passed the half mile post, the two
mares being neck and neck. Thus they entered the
home stretch, and before reaching tiie stand the
horse increased the gap to two lengths, and Para
chute tell to the rear of Laura one length, in which
position they passed the stand, in two minutes.
Upon the second mile they ran thus, with but little
variation, to the home stretch, when all the
horses were put to their best speed, and
passed the stand with the horse one length in the
lead, and the others neck and neck, in 1.59. Upon
the third mile the horse went off at a dashing
pace, and passed the quarter post three lengths in
the lead of Laura, Parachute having "broken down"
in the first quarter, while under a strong pull, and
fallen two lengths to the rear of Laura. She fell to
the rear some six lengths before reaching the quar
ter post, when, despite the efforts of her rider to take
her up, she proved her blood bv making a dash
which lessened the gap by one-half down the bank
stretch, before her rider could get her under check.
The horse passed the half-mile post hut two lengths
in the lead ol Laura, Parachute still maintaining
her position, but before reaching the head of the
home stretch the horse increased the gap between
him and Laura to three lengths, which he led lier
home. Parachute, notwithstanding her misfortune,
having easily got inside the distance post. This
mile was run in I.ss%—the entire heat hein" made
in 5.52%.
Parachute was here withdrawn, and the betting
became quite lively, the horse being the favorite aT
two to one.
Tlnrd Heat. —Wickliffe and Laura came up after
an intermission of thirty-minutes, and got offupon
the first trial, the horse being two lengths in the
load, but before reaching the quarter post the mare
made a dash at him and lessened tiie gap by one
length, and down the back stretch she closed with
him and they passed the half-mile post neck and
neck. Before reaching the home stretch the horse
again opened a gap of one length, but the mare
again closed it before reaching the stand, anil they
passed it neck and neck in 1.58. At the quarter
pole on the second mile, the horse led the mare one
length, when she again closed with him, and they
continued with but little variation to the home
stretch, coming down which, both horses being at
their utmost speed, the horse opened a gap of one
length, which he led her home, passing the stand in
two minutes. On the third mile the horse increased
this gap to two lengths in the first quarter,
in which position they passed the post, and con
tinued down the back stretch, both horses working
very hard and showing considerable fatigue. Upon
reaching the head of the home stretch, the horse
had increased the gap to three lengths, when tho
mare made a noble dash at him and came up close,
but he again shook lier oti and led her home four
lengths, the mile being run in 2.94—time of the
heat, 9.94.
SUMMARY.
Gov. AYickliffe, 2. 1. 1.
Parachute, 1. 3. drawn.
Laura Spillman, - - - 3. 2. 2.
Time —5.52; 5.52%; 9.04.
SECOND RACE.
This was a sweepstakes for three year old's, two
mile heats; S3OO subscriptions; $l9O forfeit, with
the following subscribers:
It. 11. Dickinson's ch. colt by Revenue.
Calvin Green's eh. filly, by Glencoe.
John Campbell's ch. filly, by Giencoe.
The last named paid forfeit. The judges for this
race were Messrs. Henry Fairbanks, F. M. Ilall and
Jacob Powder.
First Heat.—Col. Green's colt took the lead from
the start, and passed the half mile post three lengths
ahead, under a hard pull, and in tiie same position
they entered the home stretch, down which they
made a beautiful dash, but the colt passed the stand
two lengths in the lead, in 1.58. Upon the first
quarter of the second mile, the eolt opened a gap of
six lengths, running easily, and although the filly
made a powerful eti'ort to close with him down the
back stretch, she gained but little thereby; after
passing the half mile post, the colt again led off'at a
dashing pace, and entered the home stretch some
ten lengths in the lead, which he so far increased
before reaching tbestand that the filly barely escaped
being distanced. This mile was made in 1.57. Time
of beat, 3.53.
Second Heat. —Col. Green's colt took the lead
from the start, passing the quarter-post four lengths
ahead, though under a heavy pull. Thus they con
tinued until the half-mile post had been passed, but
before reaching the head of the home stretch, the
gap had been opened to sueli an extent that it was
evident the liliy would be shut out, and although
the colt galloped easily down the stretch, the filly
did not get inside the distance-post before the colt
had passed the stand.
SUMMARY.
Col. Green's eolt, 1. 1.
14. H. Dickinson's filly, 2. dist'ed.
MURDEROUS ASSAULT. —An omnibus, belonging to
Messrs. Coleman & Bailey, was driven up to tho
corner of Gay and Second streets, about one o'clock
yesterday afternoon, containing some ten or fifteen
desperadoes, who, it is alleged, are members of tho
notorious "Rough Skin Club." After getting out,
tiie whole party proceeded to the delivery window
ofthe post-oltice, insulting every one they met. An
old man named Barney Bradey, about 90 years of
age, a laborer engaged upon the Exchange Build
ing, who was in the office at the time, was accosted
by one ofthe party, who inquired who he voted for,
at tiie same time pointing a large rifle-barrelled
pistol at his breast. Bradey answered that he did
not vote for any one, anil requested tho ruffian not
to point his pistol at him. Upon this the whole
party gathered around, him, and commenced
beating him over the head with billys,
clubs, Ac. Colonel George P. Kane, who
was standing by, fearing they would kill the man,
' ran to bis assistance; caught hold of one of the
row dies, who made a desperate effort to escape,
and in so doing left iris coat behind. Several of the
party then drew their revolvers, and were about to
attack Mr. Kane, when Sergeant McComas, of tho
Middle District, ran in, and succeeded in arresting
a man named William Nicholson, who, it is alleged,
was the man who made the first attack upon Bradey.
Upon seeing one ofthe crowd arrested, the balance
ofthe crowd immediately jumped into the omnibus,
which had been waiting for them at the comer, and
drove off. Oflicer McComas stated the facts to Mar
shal Herring, whereupon the Marshal immediately
procured a carriage and went in search of the party.
He gave orders to the police ofthe Eastern District
for their arrest, and Captain Sparklin despatched
Lieut. Marsh, with a squad of officers in search of
them. The party in the omnibus hearing they
were pursued started out the Philadelphia road,
but the officers followed and overtook the omnibus
near the half-way house, and arrested those that
were in it. Several of the party jumped ont ofthe
omnibus along the road and lied to the fields.—
Lieut. Marsh delivered his prisoners at the Middle
District police station, where they were locked up.
Warrants had been issued for the arrest of those
who had committed the assault, and placed in the
hands ofthe United States Marshal, who, on hear
ing of their arrest, proceeded to the station house
and took them in charge. They were taken before
United States Commissioner Ilanna, and committed
to jail, but were subsequently bailed out, for an ex
amination to-day at twelve o'clock. Tho following
are the names of the parties under arrest: George
Stine, alias Rudy, Win. McEllary, Win. Richardson,
and Geo. Fowler. Thos. Hogg, for whom a bench
warrant lias been issued, is still at large. Frank
McDevitt and John Kerwin were arrested by the
police, but the United States Marshal had no war
rants against them. Mr. Bradey is a machinist,
resides at No. 90 York street, Federal Hill. He was
very badly beaten, and was taken in the Exchange
building, where he received medical attention, and
afterwards conveyed to his home.
CHILDREN SHOT. —On Wednesday afternoon,
about o'clock, four children of ilr. Wander,
teacher of a German School on Federal Hill, were
playing in the yard of bis house, situated on Ham
burg street, when suddenly four pistol shots were
fired in quick succession, one ball striking a little
girl of six years of age on tbe upper arm, another
passing close by a little boy, four years of age, and
struck another, breaking a window in the 2d story
of the house. The shots were fired from the com
mons on the back alley side of the house. The
polls of the 17th Ward were opposite Mr. W.'s house
on Hambnrg street.

IlraitwAT ROHBEUY. —A high handed and outra
geous robbery was perpetrated upon a gentleman,
named Samuel B. Epplcy, from Frederick County, i
on Thursday night. Mr. Eppley, is a miller, and
came to this city on Thursday afternoon at four
o'clock, with a large amount of money in his posses- j
sion, with the intention of liquidating some debts |
due for Flour, and from merchants, in this city for i
stock. Upon his arrival here, he proceeded to Mil- I
ler's Hotel, corner of German, and I'aca streets, !
and after eating his supper, started out for tiie pur- j
pose of spending the evening with some friends,
lie was advised by Mr. Miller, before leaving tin
house, to beware of his pocket hook, as tlu-re were
desperadoes lurking about the streets in search of
victims. He was returiiiing home, about half past
nine o'clock, and when in the vicinity ' of
Carpenters alley and I'aca street, he was
approached by two men from hehfnd,
one of whom dealt him a violent blow over
the head, and then caught him around the waist. !
The two ot tlieui then dragged him into the stone-j
yard of Mr. Sumwalt, which was near by, and, |
after stulling a handkerchief into his mouth to pre- i
vent his making an alarm, deliberately rifled his j
pockets of everything they contained, consisting of]
a large wallet, containing"sl,o9() in notes and gold, j
some small change, several notes and papers, AC. i
They also took a gold patent lever watch from his!
pocket, valued at $149. After robbing him, they !
heat him so badly that he was unable to give chase i
to the thieves, lie remained where he was attacked
for some time before lie was able to raise an alarm,
but he finally got out into the street, and called 1
for tiie police, but none were to be found. All at-;
tempts to discover the perpetrators of this outrage- [
ous robbery have so far proved fruitless.
A DUCTAL OCTKAGE. —Mr. Cyrus Gault, who re
sides at No. 335 West Lombard, near Fremont
street, was assailed and knocked down by a gang of

steps of his own door. It appears that lie was re
turning from his place of business about half-past
six o'clock in the evening, and when about half way
home was approached by a rough looking man, who
demanded twenty-live cents. Mr. G. refused to
comply with his demand, upon which the man left
him, muttering curses and swearing to have re
venge. Mr. G. proceeded on liis way, and when
within a short distance of his residence, noticed
several men following him, among whom was the
man who had first accosted him. They followed up
pretty close behind, when one of tho party struck
him a violent blow on the head with a "billy,"
which was followed up by the whole party; one of
them caught him by the hair, and, holding Iris
licad down, kicked him in the face several times,
closing both of his eyes and disfiguring him about
the face for life. lie appealed to them for mercy,
but instead of listening to his appeals, tliey attacked
him the more savagely. lie called for assistance,
but no one offered to assist him in any manner. Mr.

too; the same ball that struck Bradley hit my child; they
were iu a line with each other towards the door; the hall
passed through the pants of John Cunningham; .1 i.T not

any person to shoot at from the outside, if I was near the
light: was standing on the sill of the door when the shot
was fired; believe the shot was fired in the house or near
the side door; soon after tiie firing Mr. Hopkins limped out

we left Rainey's; don't know who fired the gun: could not
have been more than ten feet away from the shot, but
could not say where it was fired from; it was not fired
from the opposite side of the street: Hopkins was wounded
with a ball: Bradley had a gun; I saw it loaded and it was
with small shot; often go to Rainey's; he keeps a good
house, with a good reputation; never heard any firing at
his place.
John Coonan sworn. —T was in the house of Mr. Bran
nan when the party entered; they called for drink; heard
the shot fired and went out; saw young Hopkins on the
outside; said he was shot: asked him who did it. and he
said no one—that it was an accident, they didn't want to
shoot him There was no person about; when I went out
saw Hopkins on the corner of North and Pleasant streets;
did not see any of the party charged with this act; four of
the party went out: only saw two in the room when the
firing took place; can't say who fired the shot
Tims. llainill sworn.—l was in com],any with the party
who went to Braunan's; we were at Kainey's, hat he re

nan's, got liquor ami sugars, and paiil for them; went out

met <i policeman and told him that there had hoot!
persons shot; went to the station house, and toid
the officers of the occurrence; saw a man in a hack room
of Brannanvhavc what I thonght was a musket; a woman
said something to him and he put it away: don't know I
who fired the shot; did not see either Green, Rainey or ,
Judge, when I went out; often go to liainey's; never saw i
any shooting about his house; saw Rainey once fire a
pistol at a crowd.
Here the examination closed. The Justice said j
that no part of the evidence weighed against the;
party accused, and he therefore dismissed the case.

TIIE ATLANTIC TELEGRAPH—PROPOSALS
FOR A NEW CABLE.
[From the London Times.]
The Atlantic telegraph, and all that relates to it,
the best kind of rope to be used, the best moans of
getting it down, and the best way to work it when
it is down: the whole scheme, in fact, seems to he
slowly drilling hack again into those realms of theo
ry and speculation from which it has only so recent
ly emerged. Already there are many" projectors
and competitors in the field, some to work the old
rope, some to make anew. It is not cheering to
find that public attention is almost instinctively di
rected to the consideration ofthe latter project, and
that, to the hopes and expectations of the majority,
the present wire—laid at such a cost, and with such
risks—is already regarded as virtually lost and use
less.
Among those who have come forward with reme
dies for overcoming the difficulties of the Atlantic,
in case a new rope is required, is Mr. Kowett, who,
that there may be no mistake about the matter, ex
presses himself as willing to contract to lay the
rope from Valentia to Newfoundland, everything
included, for as small a sum as £182,000, or £200,-
000 less than the capital expended by the Atlantic
Company. Such an offer lias naturally directed
some attention to Mr. Ilowett's plan, which is sim
ply that of a rope-covered electric wire instead ot
the old mode of proceeding by a wire-covered rope.
.Mr. Ilowett's idea is to have the conductor well and
safely insulated with gutta percha, and then simply
enclosed without further preparation in the strands
of a coninion hemp cable about an inch in diameter.
A piece has already been made—not with a view of
displaying what would be necessary for the Atlantic
depths, but to illustrate the peculiar advantages
which sucli a mode of construction gives over the
wire cable. This specimen is certainly as light, as
flexible and as strong as could be desired, and these
three qualities must be the very sine tjua now with
all future Atlantic telegraphs.
The cost of such a cable would bo only, as' Mr. How
ett alleges, £.1(1 per mile, its weight about 0 cwt.,
and its breaking strain four tons, or nearly twice as
much as could ever come upon it while being sub
merged—no matter what the state of the weather, or
how the vessel might be plunging. To this particu
lar rope, as we have said, a certain amount of at
tention has lately been directed, owing no doubt,
to Mr. Rowett's offer to take it in working order
across the ocean to America for a regular con
tract price per mile. But, beyond the the feeling
due to an oiler of such magnitude, and made with
such confidence of success, neither the proposal
or the rope deserve the notice they have attracted.
Mr. Rowett's idea of a rope-covered wire is by
no means a new or.c, and, what is more to the pur
pose, the cable is almost without exception fur in
ferior in most important requisites to others that
were designed some time before this was thought
of. It is light., strong and flexible, but so are all
such ropes, and so even is the present Atlantic cable
(if we may still call it so) in a very high degree.—
The difference between Mr. Rowett's rope and
and others of the same kind is, that in the former
no adequate protection is given to the gutta percha,
and never can bo given by his method of stranding
the hemp, whereas with all others this important
point is carefully considered and provided for. For
these and for other reasons which show the cable to
have been designed and constructed by a person un
acquainted with what a sub-marine telegraph re
quires, it is of its kind an inferior cable, though it
has certainly done good service in directing atten
tion to the general question of rope covered with
wires for the purpose of deep sea telegraphy.
