_ERIDAY MORNING. SEPTEMBER 8, 1865.
TH^> CABLE-BR. RUSSELL'S STORY.
Lord Cranston's goblin pago, according to the
Xay ui the Last Minstrel, ran about crying "lost,
lost, lost." Thc historiographers of tho ill-fated
Atlantic cable arc given to uko melancholy utter?
ances, vet o? the goblin lived long enough to
change" hie refrain into "found, found, found," so
ft -wc trust that thc luckless wire winch is now lying,
' we forget how many fathoms deep in its watery
bcd, wrtl ere long be enabled to indulge in a like
chnngo of tune : "found, found, found.''
Dr. Russell's official account of Hie Great East
--.ern's voyage, and the abortive attempt to lay the
cable, has found its way into thc journals-but thc
public interest in it has been iii great measure an
. ticipatcd by the record ol results previously pub?
lished. The Doctor, however, branga his clever
pen into play, and he tells tho whole story with
tho vividness of a real artist, who knows how to
-invest even the driest scientific technicalities with
a melo-dramatic attractiveness that is certain to
arrest thc public attention. Tako for example his
description of thc snapping of the cable, and its
disappearance from mortal eye in the waves of
the Atlantic:
"It is not possible-' for any words to portray the
dismay with which the sight was witnessed and the
news heard. It was enough to move to tears ! And
when a man came aft with a piece of the inner end
lashed still to the chain, and one saw the tortured
strands-torn wires-tho lacerated core-it is no
exaggeration to say that a strange feeling of pity,
as though for some sentient creature, mutilated
and dragged asunder by brutal force, passed
through the hearts ol'the spectators. But ol'what
use sentimental abstraction, when instant, stren?
uous action was demanded ? Alas ! action ! There
around lay thc placid Atlantic, smiling in tho sun,
and not a dimple to show where lay so many hopes
buried (if cables be a?men) till the sea gives up_
her dead. Rut there was no blank dcspaii, and if
any felt it thev suppressed the expression of it,
whilst by far* the greatest number of thoso on
board were actually animated, not by the loss it?
self, but by the accidental nature of the occurrence
and felt greater confidence than eyer in the layin:'
of the cable.
Confidence, under these disheartening circum?
stances, it seems to us, was heroism itself, and
this heroism was not of the abstract, sentimental
kind, for straightway
"After a brief consideration, Mr. Canning, whose
presence of mind and self-possession never left
him, decided (all but egregious folly it seemed) to
?eek for the cable in the bottom of the Atlantic
to get out the grapnels and drop down to it and
pick it up again. Never hau alchemist less
chance of finding gold buttons in the dross from
which he was seeking annan polab'tlc, or Philoso?
pher's stone. But, then, what would they say in
England if not even an attempt, however desper- i
atc, had been made? There were men on hoard j i
who had picked up cables from tho Mediterranean
full 1400 fathoms down. The weather was bcauti- j
fol, and if even there wore no soundings, and the
depth beneath us was matter of confidence, it was '
settled at last that the Great Eastern should steam
ten or twelve miles to windward, eastward of the
Sosition in which she was when the cable went
own-out with the grapnels ar.d wire rope, and
' ?L ift down across the course of the track in which
the cable was supposed to be lying. Although all
utterance of hope was suppressed, and no word ,
?ff confidence escaped the lips, thc mocking shad- j
' "fews ol' both were treasured "in scmo quiet Book of ,
the fancy. The doctrine of e-?ancC could not '
touch such a contingency as we had to speculate
upon. And now they caine forth-the grapnels,
two five-armed anchors, with linkes sharply curv?
ed, and tapering to an oblique toothlike end-the
hooks with which the Giant* Despair was going to 1
fish from thc Great Eastern for a take worth, with 1
all its belongings, inure than a million." ^ <
But it was cull, drowsy work, and. after all, ,
lhere seems lo have been" but little real heart in ?,
it. for Hie Doctor goes on to say :
"At first the iron sank but slowly, but soon the ?1
momentum of descent increased, *o as to lay groat ? I
stress on the picking-up machinery, which was ' i
rendered available to lowering the novel messen-1,
ger, willi warrant of search for the fugitive hid- ?,
den in mysterious caverns beneath. Length fie**'
after length, over cog-wheel and drum, till tho ? 1
iron, warming willi work, heated at last so as to ' '
convert the water thrown upon the machinery into ;
clouds of steam. Thc time passed hea vily indeed ! i
Ail life had (bed out in the vessel, and no noise ,
was hoard except the dull grating of thc wire ca?
ble over the wheels at the bow. The most apa- 1
thctic and indifferent would have sacrificed much '
to have heard the rumble of the cable again, and j 1
have thought and esteemed it thc most grateful , :
music in the world. The electrician's room was j i
dosed-ail their subtle apparatus stood function- i *
less, and cell, zinc and copper threw ofl'supcrbons | "
currents in the darkened chamber. The jockeys ?1
had run their race and reposed in their h on sad?
dles-the drums beat no more--heir long reveille ?
was ended at last in the mumed roll of death-that I ;
which had been broken could give no trouble to j J
brake?, md man shunned the region where all these
mute witnesses were testifying to the vanity of
haman wishes. Away fiew the wire strands,
length after length; ocean was indscd insatiable
'.more" and "more," cried the daughter of horse
leech from the black night of waters, and still the
rope descended. One thousand fathoms, fifteen
hundred fathoms, two thousand fathoms, hun?
dreds again mounting np, till at last at 5.6 P. M. '
the strain was diminished, and at 2500 fathoms or .
15,000 feet the grapnel reached the bcd of the At?
lantic, and set to its task of finding and holding
thc cable. Where that lay was <>f course beyond .
haman knowledge, but as the ship drifted down
across its course, there was just a sort of kead
bhaking surmise that thc grapnel might catch ;
it-that the ship might feel it-that the :ron rope
might be brought up again, and thc cable across
it might-here was the most hazardous hitch of
all-might come up without breaking. But 2500
fathoms! Alas! and so in thc darkness of the
night-not more gloomy than her errand-the
Great Eastorn having 'cleared away one of the
great buoys and got it over her bows, was left as a '
?port to the wind and drifted at thc rate of seventy 1
feet a minute down upon the imaginary fine
beneath which the cable had sunk to useless rest." <
Nevertheless, as the reader already knowB, the
cable was really "clutched," once, twice, thrice
bat the "clutch" did not hold-the strain was too
great-and so the great ship had to give it up an.i t
return to England, with Mr. Field and all thc staff, i
Dr. Russell adding, "much strengthened bv the j
conviction that but for thc faults in the cable the
Old World and the New World would have been
ere this united by thc Atlantic Telegraph, and ani- '
mated by thc firmest belief in ultimate success.'' i
Thc "faults" alluded to, it is insinuated, were the
doings of some malicious employee-but the in- ]
sinuation does not seem to bc supported by any
?coloring of facts.
THE ERA OF GERAT FKAUPH.-At no time within
?or recollection has there been such a succession
of great frauds as during the past three or four
months. Following each other so rapidly that
their extent and audacity have severely shaken
the public sense of security, the wonder is that no
.serious financial revolution has followed in their
wake. Just glance at the list of these huge rob?
beries :

Thus, within the briet space of one hundred
days, or thereabouts, frauds and robberies by
trusted financial agents have been brought to ? ,
light amountiug to near six millions of dollars. ! j
?Jnch a statement would stagger anv sober com- '
mnnity. But Wall-street is so drunk with greed
?nd gambling that it ruffles thc thark surface and
then passes into oblivion. Nor is this to be won?
dered at. The class which, in the hour of our
deadliest peril, could play at foot-ball with the na?
tional credit and the national honor, aro more
apt to sympathize and condole with these detected
?coundreh than to institute a reform of this high?
ly disgraceful state of things among themselves.

Jeff. Davis' Family in montreal - Yoong
Davis on Yankee? and Custard.
[Correrpondcxcf cf Ute yew Tort; Httald.]
MONTREAL, Anglist i!"-, ?sc>?.
Since tho commencement o?' the summ ir excur?
sion season wo have hed a great many strangers
among us in this city, particularly from tho States
and our 6i.iter provinces. Ali the butf-lo Lave been
and are still nllcd up with braiders, transient anti
permanent, and it nr.s not nnfrocmontlv o.;cnrrcd
that our accommoda ?inns have been msnfllcicnt
for the unprecedented rush of visitors. St. Law?
rence Hall and the Doncgana Hotel are nov- flited
to their utmost capacity.
Among thc recent arrivals hero were the three
children, mother-in-law and servant of Jem Davis.
Tliey put up at thc Doncgana Hotel, and cansctl
quito a little excitement during their sta v. Your
readers arc already iainiliar willi tho personnel of
thc family, thc age of etch, and their peculiarities.
I shall not, therefore, attempt to describe thom
but merely relato a few little incidents during their
residence at the Docegana.
lt was their custom to cat at the public table
along with thc other guests of the establishment.
Tho little boy, about nine years old, was very talk?
ative and noisy. On a nm all scale lie kicked np as
much noise ami fuss at the Doncgana as his pa?
ternal relative did on a large soalo during thc re?
bellion. At meale he was constantlv gabbing in a
loud voice, and ?nd?ig fault with everything
placed before him on the table, and with the ser?
vants. Withai be is a lad of much spirit and ori?
ginality of thought and expression.
"I say, nigger," said he one day to ono of tho
colored servants, "I wish you would bring me
soa^e custard.''
The custard, in considerable quantity, was
brought and placed before him.
"Is that thc way you bring custard in this coun?
try V asked the boy.
.'Yes." answered thc servant; "you can help
yourself to as much or as litt In as you choose."
"I don't like it that way. In my country we al?
ways get it in nice little cups,'' saul Master Davis.
"Herc, nigger." (To the scrvaui.)
Servant-"I don't think you'll lind such a word
as nigger in the English dictionary."
Master Davis-"Ob, indeed! Why, I suppose I
shall have to have a dictionary with* me hereafter
when I want to converse with colored people in
Canada." ' ?
On another occasion a young lady stopping at thc
hotel asked Master Davis if ho would give her one
of his buttons. After looking at her attentively
for a while, he said:
Master Davis-"Arc you a Southerner?"
Lady-"No."
Master Davis-".Are you a Canadian ?"'
Lady-"No."
Master Davis-"Perhaps, then, you're a Yan?
kee ?"
Lady-"No, not a Yankee, either."
Master Davis-"I would not give one of my but?
tons to a Yankee for thc world. But if you were a
Southerner I would give you one. Those arc the
buttons I wore when 1 was a Colonel in tho
army-the rebel army-mind that-not the Yankee
trmy."
Lady-"I would cot mind kissing you if you
javc me one of your buttons."
Master Davis-"Oh! I would not kiss a Yankee
ivoman; no, not for all the world."
Lady-"But I'm not a Yankee."
Master Davis-"I'm afraid you aro."
Lady-"You won't give mc a button, then?" I
Master Davis-"No."
Jeff. Davis Ls now reported to submit gracefully
:o his discomforts. He would probably bu&r a
irial civilly.

Mesorw. Fishier k Haskell, Cotton Planters at Newbcrn. N. C., write, Jnly, WfiS, ai follows:
"Tlie Phosphate of Lime we purchased of you gives good satisfaction. Last year we applied fifty-five (55) tono to -
three hundred a ud seventy-five (:?75) acres of land tor cotton, soy about (MOO) three hundred pounds per acre. Wemb- .
bed the seed in the Phosphate, and also sowed it in the drill with the seed at the time of planting. On a portion ot
the laud we appl lcd a top dressing of the Lime at the second boeing. Throughout the season thc cotton plants greV
well-the leaves were ol a dark, healthy color, and " NO JUJHT" was seen on the plantation. Thc ravages of the
crmy worm prevented us from realizing the benefit from mw outlay for the Lime in full, still thc large number of
Tartly grown boils and forms gave Mme idea of what the crop would have been could they have matured. Al?
though we saved a large quantity ol' manure on thc place taut yeal-, ?mr confidence iu the value of yo-ir Phosphate
lcd UH to parchase ol' you last spriug seventy tonn, one-hnlf of which we used ourselves, and Voe balance wa? ?
bought for a friend, who was satisfied of its worth iii cotton culture. At the time of writing this, ous crop ia Jook
iug finely, and promises an abundant yield. One portion of our plantation consists of highlands with a clay sub?
soil, running near thc surface; the remainder is fiat and Inclined to be sandy. The owner of Hie place cells us that
he did not succeed with cotton on this last pari: but owing, as we think, to the liberal use of your Phosphate, we
have now a good crop growing upon it. This ls but the second season of cotton growing with us; still, froth our ?
experience thus far, we do not hesitate to recommend your Phosphate of Lime as a manure well adapted io th? .
wants of the cotton planter."
NEWBF.HKT, S. C., October, IStfO.
Professor J. J. MATES- Dear Sir: I bought twenty bugs of your Nitrogenized Superphosphate o? Lime, nf '
you r Agents, Messrs. H. & N. K. Solomon, Hamburg, S. C. (who solicited a statement of its effects), and applied it
to forty acres of my poorest cotton land.
This land ls on the public road, where its effects were seen. My neighbors, who are acquainted with the land,
were astonished at the luxuriant growth of the cotton where I used your Superphosphate. It produced better cot?
ton, and a larger amount, than on my good laud; less work was needed m making the cotton than on my other -
land. Not a particle, of cwt was to be seen where I applied your Superphosphate, while tho rust prevailed over
every other portion ol' the crop.
Respectfully yours, DAVID PAYNE
NOTE.-Mr. Payne's goal land compares favorably with the best cotton lands on the Saluda River. The Salud?
bottoms are proverbial for producing large quantities of cotton.

Mr. J. J. MATES--IVar Sir: In reply to yours of thc 1st inst., I cheei-fully statu: I have used Mspes' Nitro
genized SnperpLospliate of Lime on my cotton of the present year, and mu perfectly satisfied with it* yield.
I can recommend it to my neighbors with confidence, aa a pure and effective manure, and would give it the -
preference to any oilier in thc market.
Yours, respectfully, TAOS. DAVIS.
Mr. Charles W. Mixon, of Edcnton, Chowan County, N. C.. writes to Mr. Bockover:
In regard to Mails' Phosphate lt worked admirably for me, the product being fully equal if not superior to?
both the manures before mentioned. It did not start the young plant as early as either the other manures; but lt ?
seemed to retain its color and pods much better, ami rio symptom of nut was ever seen where it was applied-alf.
the land I planted in cotton being about the same quality and strength. CHARLES Vi. MIXON.
Extract from a lotter from Colonel Gideon Dowse, of Derzelia, near Augusto, Ga.. August, 18G0:
J. ,T. MAP?-?Jrar Sir: I have no hesitation in saying that on my own farm your Superphosphate has been,,
and is now. superior in its effects, where I have applied lt on my cotton, to either lot-mauuro or cotton need; and,.'
as compared to '.he laud without manure in the same field (in my opinion the only true way to test it), it is as tour
to one in the number of grown bolls, and as ten to ono in the young fruit and forms, in favor of the Superphos?
phate.
This opinion is formed from a close and critical examination by my overseer and myself. There is one result ?
from Its application, which, if it had nothing else to recommend it, is of incalculable value, and that is, it doc?
seem to guard against that worst enemy of the cotton plaut, namely, the runt.
I have applied it to land that Invariably rusts cotton, and there is as yet not a sign of rust in it, while the same
kind of land just adjoining is completely ruined by it already.
This experiment confirms that made by Mr. Lomas, of S. C., last year; and I ara fully persuaded that any plant
manured with it does withstand a drought better and keeps green longer than with any other application that hay
come under my notice. I have seen cotton, corn, okra, melons and other garden plants, that have kept green,
during the terrible drought that has so completely destroyed all our gardens, and my nu tm eg melons are as green*
and blooming a* beautifully as in spring.
I have written this as the result ol ray Judgment from close observation. When I shall have gathered my crops'
lt will give mc pleasure to give you the result from actual weight a*id measure.
Yours. GIDEON DOWSE
Extract from Weekly Day-Hook:
NEW YORK, October 20, 1859.
"We have, (S the course of au extensive agricultural correspondence, gathered evidence of the superior value
of Napes' Nitre genized Superphosphate of Lime upon the cotton fields of the South, where Peruvian tinaco had.
been used w ith partial success. The bollt have been header, and of greater number, the yield of cotton /u r acre nae
be eu larger, and what is also of the greatest consequence, no nut is (h'seotrm/ in cotton fields where thia article im
applied, to which may bc added its peculiar lasting power nf fertilization, und its comparative cheapness. These*
tacto bave- come to us in correspondence from parties who have used othtr like agents, and who give this by Jar the
highest praise.
"We have arrived nt the conclusion, aftc-r considerable experiment ourselves, and of careful search for the re?
sults of the trials of others, tbut Mopes' FerrtUier has More of the property needed ia a general manure, in horticul?
ture and agriculture, than any thing else of the kind we aro acquainted with."
Enr.EFiELn. S. C.. October 10, 1660.
,T. J. MAPFS. Esq., New York-Dear Sir: I bought four tons or your Superphosphate of Lime tor my cotton,
crop, also some guano, and have tried them side by side on the same quality ol' land. AW a parti?'-: of rust waa to?
be seen where your Superphosphate was used: and I also applied stable manure on a portion of my land. The*
cotton had the rust when the latter was tued. The yield of eottou was splendid rl/n the Superphosphate wa?
used, despite the extraordinary dry year. When I applied the other manure the yield was not good.
I applied the Superphosphate at the rate of 100 lbs. per acre, and believe it would have paid bettes if I had put
more per acre. *
I sold my cotton In Hamburg yesterday at !?'c. per pound over the usual market price. The hut was consid?
ered very strung and heavy. I consider yours a reliable manure.
Yours, truly. JAMES M. LANHAM.
