TOWING HER UNWIELDY CONSORT. TIME OF DEPARTURE NOT YET FIXED. [Correspondence of the Manchester Guardian.] Xeakixu Valentia. Tuesday Night. Extremely heavy weather has been encounter ••d bv the Great Eastern on her voyage hither from the Sore. In spite of her gigantic size she has been made to fee! that she is a ship, and that she liears no immunity from the tendency to roll and pitch which lielon’gs to all floating structures. We are forcing our way slowly oil a lee shore, and the night is as dirty as we could wish not to see. To morrow morning we shall he off Valentia. but the programme arranged before we started has been upset by the failure of the Caroline to fulfil her part of it. This vessel, a screw steamer of mode rate tonnage, was entrusted with the duty of laying the shore end of the Atlantic cable. She left London with the end on board eleven or twelve days ago. and ought, long before now, to have reached her destination and i»erformed her work, so that the Great Eastern, immediately on her ar rival at Valentia, could, if the weather had been line, have made a splice and proceeded to sea.— In the channel, however, she was met by heavy, Miually weather, anil found herself unable to get on. She put into Falmouth, and there she remain ed until .Monday morning, when she came out. aud slowly, at the’ rate of about four knots an hour, continued her voyage' Off the Land’s End, we to our great astonishment and disgust, fell in with her. ’1 here was nothing to tie done but to take iii tmv xml holn hi»r aloncr to Valentia with all convenient speed. This was done at once, and, since Monday afternoon, we have been dragging her after us at the rate ot about six knots an hour, a speed which the bad trim of the (treat Eastern, and the bad weather we have had to struggle with, lias made it impossible for us to exceed, to any ma terial extent, at any time during the voyage. The ship left her moorings below the Nore at twelve o'clock on Saturday. This was a good deal later than the timetirst fixed; but, although it might have been desirable for some reasons to start very early in the day, and thus get as many hours ol daylight as possible to show hertlie way through the narrow part of the Channel off Dover and Folkatcne, it was more important to have a rising tide while passing through the shallows at the rneuth of the Thames, so thnt on the event of the ship’s bottom touching sand, the tide would float her off. Ever since the Great Eastern has been devoted to her present duty, a very strong interest has been shown in her welfare, and. of course, when the moment for her depart ure arrived, an attendant train of yachts clus tered round her, sailing along her sides, with their mastheads just peering over her bulwarks,and treking athwart her stem or stern, sometimes so close as almost to brush the paying-out apparatus with their t psails. The morning was perfect in every way—almost cloudless, witn just suflicient wind to carry otf the smoke, but none that could in the least perceptible degree affect the steering of the ship. The trim to which she had been brought did not, of course, promise any very bril liant performances at sea. .She drew at starting thirty-four feet tAO inches aft and a trifle over thirty feet forward. This wa« by several feet a deeper draught than she was designed for, and told very seriously against her spead. Moreover, she ought properly to be on an even keel if re quired to tiehavo well. Many screw steamers re quire a deep draught astern, but this is not the case with the Great Eabtern. The evil will, how ever, be remedied when the actual work of the voyage commences, by paying ont the cable in the after tank first. A lirge party had accumulated on board the Great Eastern'during the two days previous to her departure. Although the Telegraph Con struction and Maintenance Company hare deter mined on a rigorous system of exclusion so far as the voyage from Valentia to Newfoundland is concerned, invitations were issued liberally enough for the trip ronnd to the wes* of Irelunc. Most of the guests were friends of the directors, whom it is not necessaty to nsme; but, as many gentlemen on board are well known In tho scientific world, their presence may be mention ed. Mr. Fairbairn, Mr. Brassey, Mr. Clean and Mr. Gooch were among the visitots. Mr. Cyrus W. Field was, of course, on board, but he goes the whole way. as also Proiessor Thompson, regular ly engaged to give his valuab'e scientific services t’o the enterprise. M. Despeches, a French gen tleman connected with the oceau telegraphy, was also among the passeoge ?. Captaiu Moriarity, the chief sailing master of the navy, had been lent by the Government to assist in the naviga tion of the vessel, and to superintend the adjust ment ot the compass before starting. This last named operation was one of great difficulty, be cause a ship like the Great Eastern could not be regularly swung. It was necessary to let her swing herself, and to observe the magnetic devi ations by means of ozimuMi observations us she went round. Owing, jierhap^, to the presence on board of the Atlantic cable, the variations of the compass were very considerable, but these have been caiefully corrected by the insertion of mag nets in the compass boxes. As soon as the anchor was up, the Porcupine— a Government surveying vessel, the services of which have been frequently placed at the disposal of the Atlantic telegraph before—steamed slowly ahead, and the liugeeugines of the Great Eastern began to revolve, they aid not carry heron very rapidly at first, and the awilt Porcupine Lad to check her speed constantly in order to allow her unwieldy consort to follow. For the first few miles of the journey we cannot have gone ahead more than live knots an hour. The paddle en ginea made about five revolutions a minute, the screw engine- twenty-two. The screw did meat of the work. I believe, for the deep trim of the ship was highly unfavorable to the action of the" paddles. The screw engines are, indeed, very much more powerful than their compan ions. It is difficult to believe this w'hlle looking at the colossal proportions of the paddle engines, compared to which the moving parts of the other appear si/ ill; but the effective power of an engine doe* not depend ou the amount of iron in the crank shaft. No tugs were in attendance ou the ship at her departure, although when she left the Medway to tike np her berth at the XTore. uo (ewer than seven hovered ronnd her to render service if they were reauired. On that oc casion, however, it was found that the ship w as handled wily, and that she could safely lie trust ed to steer herself. The alterations which have been made at the stern of the vessel to accommo da'o the machinery for paying out the cable had necessitated a complete change in the arrange ment of the ttiering appaiatus, but this change had not been followed by any injurious results.— At present the wheels are below the upper deck, and the chains pass upward through guide pul ley-. There ate four wheels on the steering shift, and eight men are required to work them even in a calm, in heavy weather it is necessary to put on a greater number. The dial of a signaling apparatus, directed by means of a small wheel ou trie bridge. is fixed in view oi the helmsmen, and in obedience to its direction the ship is steered. The Porcupine led ou out through a channel very rarely used, nearer the Essex shore than that along which ships proceeding from the Thames round the North Foreland habitually pass. This was a round-about way. bat the channel was broader and deeper than the other, and better adapted to a vessel of the Great Eastern's draught. It forced us to take a very long sweep round the coast and it was past six o'clock before we got into the Downs. The excitement of the day was caused by the enthusiasm of numberless small yachts, row boats and steamers with excursion ists. which pushed off' from the coast to see ns go by. The Duke of Sutherland's yacht, a good sized paddle steamer, accompanied us for a few miles, and, owing to the deliberation of our move ments, ’he sailing yachts also found it easy to keep up with us as long as they were disposed to do so. A Margate boat going np to Loudon al tered her course so as to run paat us close along side. and a screw steam yacht, which passed ns near the Foreland, lay to. and gave us two guns by way of salute. Lat;r in the evening off Deal, the water was crowded with small boats, and, so long as the light lasted, one prolonged chorus of vociferous good wishes was bawled into oar ears. The Porcupine, by the way. expressed herself very gracefully when she left us to our own de- i vices off the North Foreland by running up a white flag, with ‘‘God speed you,” painted on it in large letters. She rounded to and passed 119 on the starboard beam when we were fairly in the right road, and her crew gave us a hearty cheer, while all our own people were ordered to the aide to reply. It was nine o’clock, and the sun had gone down completely, before we passed through the Straits of Dover and got fairly iutu the channel. The whole day iiad beeu deliciously fine, the sunset over the Kentish coast exquisitely beautiful, and a cloud less night followed. We could seethe lights of Dover and Folkestone so distinctly that each indi vidual sjieck might have beeu counted, and the electric light on Dungeuess burned brilliantly and steadily. By this time our speed had slightly im ploved’, but "the average for the whole way was very little more than six knots an hour. Subse quently we did about seven, but I do not think that this speed was surpassed at any time during the voyage. The coals burned on the trip round from the Nore will have lighted the ship to some extent, amt before the autual work begins a hun dred and fifty tuns of water will be pumped out of the after tank, which will improve her trim and materially increase the effective powers of the en gines. Of course a very higli speed is not required, but it is very desirable that one greater than six knots an hour should be commanded, so that that speed at any rate may be maintained even in unfa vorable weather. Bebkhaven, Bantky Bay. duly 19. We reached \ alentia this morning at half-past six. The Caroline had cast off her tow rope a little before this, and made her own way into the harbor. The Gloat Eastern then sent a boat on shore with Mr. Canning, the chief engineer, and immediately afterwards went about and made for this harbor, wheteshe will remain until the Shore end of the cable is laid. A very heavy swell is still on. and no work can be done till the weather moderates. How many days will be wasted it is at present impossible to say. The Sphynx and Terrible are here, and a calm is all we want. [By Electric Telegraph.] Valkntia, Friday. The cable was landed to-day for the earth con nection. and two miles were paid out to sea. The main shore end of the cable will be landed to rorrow, if the weather continues favorable. ITEMS. It is estimated that there are now 100,000 negro soldiers under Government pay. Lieut J. P. Jones, of Norwalk, Ohio, com mitted snicide a few days since. Major General Augur yesterday issued an order discontinuing tho District of Washing, tou. It is said that the lady visitors at Sarato ga, this summer, patronize the faro hanks. We are “piogressing.” A peach train of twenty-eight cars passed over the Delaware Railroad one day last week. The number of applications for widow’s pensions already amounts to over one hun dred thousand, aud for invalid pensions to about seventy-five thousand. Secretary McCulloch has decided that all bonds, Treasury notes and other obligations of the Government are free from State or municipal taxation. A movement is ou foot among certain rich citizens of St. Louis to present Gen. Sher man with a fine house in that city. About twenty persons, so far, have made subscrip tions averaging $1,000 each. A convention of deaf mutes will assemble in Wieting Hall, at Syracuse, New York, at two o’clock, P. M. on Wednesday, the 30th i of August, and continue during Thursday, to organize an association. Mrs. Geer, of Clinton, Wayne county, Midi., went into her pasture lot on Sunday, wearing a red shawl, when a ferocious bull attacked her, driving his horns into her breast and killing her instantly. An unknown foreigner shot himself recent ly on a radroad train, .just as it entered a funnel near London. When the train emerg ed into daylight, his blood and brains were fonnd scattered over other passengers. A strange young man in cavalry unilbrm went into an unoccupied house at Brighton on Saturday, put a rope about his neck, mounted a chair, fastened the rope to a naii in the wall, und kicked away the chair.— When found ho was dead. By order of General Canby, two wealthy beef contractors ot St. Louis, named Aiken and Morser, have been arrested on charges of fraud in furnishing beef to the army.— They are uow under heavy bonds, and will be sent to New Orleans for trial. A rat hunt was recently held In the sewers of Paris, where the vermin had taken refuge from the cold. They were driven by dogs and yells to a common centre, where iu a large sewer tho dogs were let in loose upon them and 110,000 killed in forty-live hours. At a pic nic at Ilawesville, Kentucky, on Monday a man named Cheatham drew his pistol in a quarrel, but instead of firing at his adversary, the weapon went off acciden tally, the ball passing through the heart of his wife, who was standing near him. At the Saratoga ball European aristocracy was represented by the daughter of the Duke of Newcastle, richly dressed in white, em broidered with pale green, with a zouave jacket, diamond and pearl necklace. The arena. HUH iici ugui umr aua Willie COiiniC nance, made her quite attractice. Dr. Thomas Bynes, of Hope Church, Ga., was shot on Thursday by a party of six of his former slaves, who supposed if he was dead they would get his land. His body was not found until it had beoa nearly de voured by hogs. The negroes have been ar. rested, and one of them has made a confes sion. At Grass Lake, Mich., last Sunday and Monday, two murders were committed—one a returned soldier named Short, who was poisoned by a woman with whom he was on a druuk the other a citizen named David fmolk, who was stabbed by Short’s com panion, a soldier named Thompson. Major General Benjamin Prentice was ar rested at Quincy, Illinois, on Saturday, and fined five dollars for thrashing a young man who kept company with his daughter against the General’s wishes. His son aided his fa ther in the work, and was fined a like amount. In the Mexican advices just to hand it is announced that Wade Hampton had arrived in that country with several hundred armed men. T lerc are reasons for doubting this, as about the time these advices were dated the noted South Caroiiniau wai near Co lumbia, in that State, where he had written a letter rebutting certain charges that had been made against him by Gen. Sherman. A correspondent of the Lewiston Journal says he overheard the following conversation between two small urchins: says one, “Ain’t you got no grandmother?” “No.” “I tell yer,” responded tin first, “they’re tip-top. Let yer do as yer please ; give yer as much good stuff as yer can eat, and the more you sarse ’em the better they like it.” The flies have driven the United States Surveyors out of the woods of fhawano county, Wisconsin. These insects are called land flies, and they gather about the neck as soon as the sun warms them up out of the ground, and their bite is painful and poison ous, creating considerable sores, and causing the neck to swell. It is <-<tiinated that there are about one, hundred thousand Americans in Europe at this time. Probably there will have been altogether not less than two hundred thou sand there fu the course ot this summer.— Paris is, of course, their chief place of re sort, but they penetrate into every country of Europe. On Thursday last, about a dozen prisoners in jail at Wheeling, Va., dug a hole through a brick wall, and made an attack npon the jailor with various missiles. He seized his revolver and faced them bravely, instantly killing one, Abner Marks, a highway robber, and seriously wounding two others. During the melee, two of the party made their es cape. Mrs. Killgore, of Kosston, Fa., disap pered some days since. Last Thursday, her body was found near a highway in somo bushos. She had been stabbed to death af ter a fearful struggle, in which her ear-drops were torn from her ears, her arms and chest lacerated, and her clothing rent into shreds. Robbery was not the object of the murder, as valuable jewelry, which she wore, was left untouched. On Saturday, Joseph Burrill, a young colored man who hail served in the I'nion army for three years, was drowned while bathing in the Pocstenkill creek at Troy.— He was seized with a cramp and sank. Coroner Hums took possession of his clothes and money and commenced a search for the body, which was found yesterday alternoon. An inquest resulted in a verdict of “acci dental drowning.” Penuy Trains are now “an institution” in London. They run early and late on the underground railroads. The workiug man descends into a spacious subterranean depot, well lighted in one part of London, takes his neat iu a third class “carriage,” and for two cents, in teu minutes, is landed miles away in another part of London, whither by “bus” would have cost him twelve cents and an hour’s ride. In this way the mechanic, in his pretty cottage in the country, or in a dis tant street, is really close by his work ; and one great evil in a large city checked in part. A woman, the wile of a returned soldier, residing at Mo. 45 North Moore street, New York, received him on his arrival from the South the other day with the most violent demonstrations of joy and alfection, and was so completely happy at meeting her liege lord that the first night of their re-union she self. The sequel proved that she was deeply enamored of another man, and had been his mistress for two years, and knowing she must separate from him alter the return of her lawful spouse, she concluded, if she could no longer sleep on her lover’s bosom, to sleep under the waters of the Hudson. A young Frenchman belonging to one of the “llrst families” in San Francisco, mar ried a young countrywoman fresh from a convent school, with great eclut at the Ca thedral of Notre Dame des Viet >ires, ono Sunday evening last month. The ceremony was performed in the presence of a largo number of the elite of the city, and the bridesmaids were among the loveliest and most elegantly attired ever seen iu the cathe dral. On Wednesday the town was startled by the report that the beautiful meek-eyed bride had decamped with the marriage pre sents and weading garments, in company with a gay Lothario, whose acquaintance she had made Heaven only know s how or where, leaving the late happy bridegroom in his des olate home without so much as saying “Good bye.” The forlorn husband contents him self with advertising his truant wilo in the usual manner, adding that “from date he will resume the liberty of dngle blessed ness”—(“JM reprend toute so liberte de gar con.’’) BOOkS STATIONERY, ETC, J^IDGOOD 4 RILEY, (Successors to George I..

His terms arc more moderate than those of mere boasting pretenders, whose only purpose is to fleece the unfortunate, and then advise them, when it is almost too late, to apply to him.
