Another Defalcation.
MEW YO UK, September l-l.- Tho t rea y ri?
ver of a company which hfia recently bcea.
established in Wall street, under toe title
of " Tho American Cotton Planting and
Loan Company," with a reported capital ot
$2,500,000, has absconded, leaving the
nr>*Ticiai affaira of the concern in a very
unsatisfactory condition.
An investigation revealed th? met that
notwithstanding the large amount of fund s
which had been paid in for subscriptions,
thc total of which cannot be definitely as- ?
certainod-on account of the treasurer h av- j
ing left subscription books in various lo- I
calities known only to himself, and having j
boon in daily receipt of lotters eupposed to j
have contained remittances-but which is
estimated at $30,000, a largo number of
billa of expense incurred during thc forma- I
tion of the company still remain unpaid.
From some unexplained reason, the direc?
tors have so far taken no steps to have the
defaulting treasurer brought to justice, al?
though it is reported that he retddes in
Philadelphia-thus showing a culpable
negligence in the management nf the af?
fairs of the company, which canses much
complaint on the part of those who have
been led into the scheme by the known re- J
sponsibility of the gentlemen composing
the board of directors.

Thc New Cnhio.
On Saturday afternoon last, was j
consummated one of tho grandest :
achievements of this century, memo- <
rabie ns it is for its political change?, j
its industrial progress and its fpienti- j
fie discovery. A second of those
wonderful links which are to lund
evermore the two continents in indis- 1
soluble union that defies the waste of ;
ocean and ? he flight of time, bringing !
the citizen of New York and the citi- i
zen of Loudon into communication j
with the quickness uhnost of tho light j
mug's Hash, waa landed at Heart's ?
Content-the second in order of time, i
but not in fact, for part of it had laid j
for months in the depths of the s ?a.
Wo all remember how, a year or more j
ago, we were pained by thc news of:
tho failure of thc Great Eastern to lay !
thc cable; how tho sanguine friends
ot' the enterprise grew silent, while :
tho croakers chuckled over thc ful- '
fillment of their forebodings. Dow n
deep in thc depths of the ocean the j
cud of the cable was lost, never, it ?
was believed by many, to he recover- i
ed; and when the expedition .sailed j
this season with a new one on board, I
few expected for it any other fate.
Tho world was electrified when the j
fact was established that along the ?
thin pathway, contrived by human
art, tho thoughts of men were Hash- j
ing from continent to continent; and
though day after day wo got news j
from tho other side of riots and of :
revolutions, of tho overthrow of ctn-i
pires aud the flight of princes, wc
could hardly believe that the wonder '
was real or that it would last. Tin
world laughed a derisive smile ut thc
idea of rescuing the old cable from
thc. almost fathomless bcd of tho sea. ',
and splicing it with a ?rew addition j
that would connect the continents.
Bat enterprise and science have over?
come all obstacles. Thc grappling j
irons, guided by human SK?II, have :
wrought a seeming miracle. The
ocean has yielded its prey, over which
its terrific storms have swept in vain.
The old cable has been recovered,
and the fact announced forthwith to
Europe and then to America The
splice w;ts made on board the Great
Eastern, and which proudly bent its
way to tho Western coast of New?
foundland, and thus another impe?
rishable bond is added to that great
net-work of communication and of
sympathy which is binding the whole
human race together in one common
brotherhood. -National InU .lligemvi'.

GEORGIA DIAMONDS.-Thc diamond
mines in Georgia arc to bo worked
this year by Dr. Stevenson, who, in
1861, put np machinery near Gaines?
ville to work exclusively for these
precious gems. He had got Iiis
works completed, and washed about
two weeks, and found live small ones
td inferior quality, when his hands
~ taken away for the army. It is
proposed during the year to attach a
few skilled hands to the gold-washing
machines, and so settle the question
as to whether diamonds can bo found
in sufficient quantities as to pay for
working.
