MO HITCH OB ACCIDENT of any kind occurred In laying the cable from Halifax to within ten miles of the shoals, where it is buoyed; but two or three days were lost by the fog on the Banks. Mr. Siemens received a despatch to day (rom London, stating that the steamer Ambassador, with the Rye end of the oable, did not leave England until June 2; so she cannot arrive here so soon as was expected? perhaps about the 12tb instant.

The party will probably visit Manchester on the following day. THE STAT OF THE KAKKADAY here Is uncertain, but probably sbe will remain until the Ambassador arrives, alter which she will proceed to lay the cable remaining on board between Halilax and Newfoundland and then return to England to load again to lay the cable between Ireland and Halifax. The deep sea cable Is very strong and light, weighing only three tons to the mile, while the shore endings are im mensely large and heavy, being two and a half Inches in diameter and weighing eighteen tons to the mile. There are also two other Intermediate sizes. The Farraday is an object of great attention and Is visited by a large numoer of citizens and stran gers. A TERRIBLE DISASTER.
