The receipt of the news from Europe respecting the unsuccessful efforts of the Niagara, and Agamemnon to lay the At lantic telegraph, have induced the publi cation of an opinion expressed by profes sor J Morse that the cable should all be packed in one'vessel, and that the more divisions that are made, the more liability to breakage. This idea we hare beard expressed by many persons eeveral times since the Atlantic project was first broach ed and there is another in the same connection which seems now to be com ing into favor, though formeily much rid iculed, and that ia.ihat the cable should be larger, and of consequence much stronger than it now is. ' Prof. Morse thinks the Leviathan could carry and " deliver" it alL . . She is a stupendous vessel, and may ke able to do it, for she probably lias more than double the capacity of the Niagara ; but even half of the cable of the piesent size was a very sevete load for the Aga memnon if not the Niagara. If the pres ent experiment has entirely failed, howe ver, it is to be hoped that the trial will be made with the Leviathan. When that proves impracticable,' then we may return to the ulterior plan (now again revived,) of Tal P. Shaffner, Esq., of Kentucky, which was for a line via Greenland, Ice land and the Faroe Islands. We under stand he has received the right to extend the eabU and connections over the terri tories of Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Russia, and s promise of all (he aid neces sary for a sure communication there. This route require) no longer stretch of sub-marine cable than six hundred miles, and for that distance lines elsewhere, are in successful operation. In Philadelphia, a meeting of stockholders of the Magnetic Aeifgrapii iiom mw Xork to Washington and the eastern and southern lines resol ved to aid Mr. S. - j im great necessity oi a connection between the Atlantic and Pacifio Slates of our Union was fully recognised by our last Congress, but action upon it was crowded out. It cannot be much longer delayed. Emigration is rushing to tho gold fields of Oregon and Washington lentones and the Biitish Possessions, and will probably continue into Russian America, while the Russian Emperor is extending telegraph lines to his eastern boundaries, aud he also supports observa tories for scientific purposes from Ural to the Pacific. , The width of Behring's straits is not greater than that or the English Channel, and wire needed on most of the line, would not be more than half as expensive as that used on the At lantic line. There arc now in operation, lines from Lopdon to St, Petersburg, and Irkoutsh in Central Siberia, and from N. York to a point considerably west of the Mississippi. It is evident, therefore, that a route through our own territories to the Pacific, through the English and Russian Possessions to . Behring's Straits, and across to Asiatic Russia, is both fea sible and necessary. We hope if the Niagara's expedition fails, the Leviathan will be tried ; but if neither are succesful, we are confident that the globe will be girdled with the telegraph wire. If the Atlantic expeditions should all utterly fail, fifteen or twenty years must elapse before the route of which we have just spoken, could be accomplished. There have been eeveral plans projected for routes via the West Indies, etc., but we mention none of them, because we consid er none of them feasible. Pitt. True Pi ess. The Washington Union on Senator Douglas. SeNatoe Douglas at Chicago He is a Douglas Man. There was a time not long ago when it was common to near praises of the abil ity, heroism and fidelity of the honorable Senator from Illinois. He was a favorite of the great Democracy, and exhibited in defence of the great cause decided ingu nuity and talent. The time has passed. We do not recollect the laurels won by the Senator in the debates of the late ses sion. Much was expected of him as he led off with a grand flourish of trumpets in opposition to his old friends ; all were disappointed in the results of that great controversy. It was manifest Mr. Dou glas' old enemies, who burned him in i effigy two years before, and now his new friends only wished to use him to break op the Democracy, not to build ud Re publicanism. They could afford, how ever, to flatter, as the article was cheap and easily bestowed. At length, so we thought, Mr. Senator Douglas came to re alize nig true position Deroretha eMHryv tie had abandoned a great many friends, more than there are in the whole Repub lican family. He could scarcely have made a good transaction. He felt the loss of those who had supported him and saw the difference between that kind of friendship and what he was ratline by supporting the Republicans. Hence, late ly, we have had mysterious givings out that Mr. Douglas would go home and again, by bold declaration, reunite him self with the Democratic party. we nave at length the telegraphic re port of his speech at Chicago. Ic may be imperfect in point of matter It may not embrace all Mr. Douglas said. We sincerely trust it is, that much has been left out and much reported which Mr. Douglas did not say. 1 he latlci would be a most desirable amendment of the speech ; for what is reported lo have been said will greatly astonish the country. Mr. Douglas, we (ear, has mistaken a demonstration in his behalf in two or three cities for popular support and con fidence by the whole country. He ar raings the demooratic party of last winter, and declares that he and his friends de feated and prostrated it in the passage of the English bill, which he and his friends opposed and voted against! The En glish bill was all wrong, Mr. Douglas could not endorse it ; he voted against it; it became, nevertheless, a law. That law then became a triumph to Mr. Dou glas 1 There are some things to deep for ordinary minds ; and this was never made olearer than in the report of Mr. Douglas' speech. What was the object of the Senator! Did he wish to re-open the old wounds I Did be desire to set un for himself on the small capital of three public receptions ? Has his vanity so overcome his judgment that be can for a moment suppose that nineteen twentieths of the demociatic party are about to stultify themselves, condemn their conduct last winter and come out now for the most infamous of all abolition measures, the Critenden amendment,which Mr. Douglas now so warmly approves T We sdy with all candor to the Illinois senator that he never made a greater mis take. It was his place to forget what passed last winter. He was interested in forgetting it. The country was all ready to recognize and endorse his defective memory in this respect. We believe Mr. Douglas himself really desired to obliterate the infinite blunders of the late session. But he must vindi cate his consistency. He most go down to his people and show ibem that he was quite immaculate that be never made blunders ; and in that act he committed the greatest blunder of his life. We wil not indulge in further comment in antici pation of the autliorative publication of his speech. fCP During the progress of some tin ners at work on the Cupola of the First Presbyterian church at Mt. Vernon, on the 17th inst., some fire ignited with the wood-work which spread rapidly, consu ming the building in spite of all efforts made to save it. No estimate pf the amount of loss. The last instalment of debt on the building had just been paid, from the nroceeds of a t aanherrv festival Igivenby tneladies' " , "v i . .. ..... , - i The Way the Money Goes. u . Senator Wilson, in his speech on the extravagant sums spent by the Adminis tration in collecting the national revenue, stated that there are at Niagara 19 men employed at an expense of $13,000 to collect $8,000, at Oswego 23 men at $18,000 to collect $0,000, at Buffalo 20 men at $17,000 to collect $10,000, at Plattsburg 26 men at $14,000 to collect $18,000, at Burlington 33 men at $16, 000 to collect $8,500, at Wiscasset 8 men at $7,000 to collect $130, at Ports mouth 21 men at $11,000 to collect $5, 500, at Newburyport 13 men at $6,200 to collect $0,000, at Marble bead 0 men at $2,200 to collect $2,250, at New Bed ford 14 men at $7,500 to collect $8,000, at Perth Amboy 13 men at $4,500 to collect $1,600, at Norfolk' 23 meu at $49,000 to collect $61,000, at Oesacoke 7 men at $2,000 to collect $82, at Toledo 9 men at $4,400 to collect $567, at De troit 10 men at $3,600 to collect $495, at San Francisco 134 men at $402,000 to collett $1,580,000, at Benicia 3 men at $4,400 to collect ?2,3Q0, at Stocktou 1 man at $3,100 td collect 143, at' Sacra mento 1 man at $3,000 to collect $402, at San Diego 4 men at $7,600 to collect $30, at Monterey 3 men at $7,050 to collect $45, at San Pedro 6 men at $4, 200 lo collect $304. ' A glance at these figures v. ill suffice to convince any man that the number of employees at these places has been pur posely increased in order to afford snug places for politicians whom the party finds it necessary to reward. Two Or three men would serve to do all the work allotted to 20 or 25; but the Democratic party never hesitate about quartering its favorites on the public treasury. Well Spoken. Considerable interest seems to prevail just now among the Baptist bietliren on the subject of close communion. Some unfortunate ones among them are terribly alarmed at alleged relaxations of opinion in (he denomination respecting this old and ugly distinction. They call lustily for reform. Others ashamed of the bigoted aspect of these views, remonstrate, and think the purity of the denomination not entirely dependent upon uncharitableness to all the rest of the Christian world. A correspondent of tho Examiner, signing himself ' Many Baptists," says : " 1 have long been looking lor some evidence that the tenet of 'Close Com munion,' for which the Baptists of our times consent to stand responsible is real ly held by any considerable portion of ihem, as a positive and earnest religious conviction. During twenty-five years connection with this denomination, in various and somewhat familiar association with its ministers and leading minds, I have never hfjkrd a.sermQn4in this sub.? jec'and never heard the sentiment em bodied in a devout and earnest prayer." fie proceeds to remark on another no ticable fact, namely : "The prevailing demiss and apologetic tone of what we do .say on the subject. There is nothing of the agressiye bold ness of conscious truth in our recent ad vocacy of close communion. We stand on the defensive merely ; and are gener ally contented with throwing up between ouiselves and our -assailants the shield of an argumentum hominem, very just and effective as against our adversary, very inconsequential and unsatisfactory as fur the truth." " He further remarks, that though Baptist " marners'-' do not turn other brethren out of doors, yet their " princi ple" does, He says: " Evade it as we may, by giving our brethren such warning of what awaits them as keep them usually out of the way; disguise it us we may, under gentle tones and 8auvjty of manner, when the disa greeable duty must be done; dodge it as we sometimes do, by hard winking at the critical moment, and discreet silence after wards, there stands the naked fact ; when the juncture comes, we must either swal low our' principles or turn our brethren outofdoois." Now this is honestly and eloquently said ; no man could show himself a bet ter friend to the denomination than he that should thus rebuke the greatest practical heresy of Protestant Christen dom ; the worst deformity of the modern relormed Church. How enlightened and charitable Baptists can tolerate ihis great error ct their sect in an age like this, is indeed a problem. Cb. Adv. and Jour, Too Large a Party. The Evening Post, the old Radical Free Soil branch of the new born Repub liean Parly says: 'The Republican party is just large enougn wnen ii em or aces an me people in the country who cordially and earnest- ly approve of the leadinir doctrines of the Philadelphia platform of 1856; and it is too large when it embraces a single man wno does not. On this 1856 platform, the Republican Party had no votes South, in fifteen States; ana in ine sixteen rree states it was largely in the minority on the aggregate Fillmore and Buchanan vote. Its pros pects ahead are, thus, very brilliant under the Party programme 1 No one legged parly no mere North em sectionalism can ever oblain a vie tory in these United States. To re-pos sess the Government of the nation and to free it from mere Southern sectionalism, a Notional Party, embracing all the thirty-three States is indispensable, 3TA young gentleman from the rural districts, being slightly inebriated, created quite a sensation in Washington, Pa., the other evening, by manifesting a strong propensity to climb a telegraph pole, in order lo escape the ''vast circumference," versus crinoline, alias hoops, of a number of young ladies who were promenading, unsu8pectedly,the principal thoroughfares, The effect produced by this unlooked for scene pin readily be imagined, . ; BY MAGNETIC TELEGRAPH. FROM EUROPE. THE 1AYINO OF THB CABLE A FAILURE. New York, July 20. The steamship North Star has arrived with dates t6 the 7th mat. The Atlantic telegraph cable parted about v thousand miles from the Irish Coast;-1 The Niagara and Gordon arrived baok on the oth, having abandoned the enter prise. The Agamemnon and Valorous had not arrived on the 7th inst. Three attempts had been made to lay the cable. The squadron experienced very bad weather during the Cruise, and on the uin ot June, a heavy gale occurred du ring which the fleet was separated, but met again at the rendezvous. ' Un the first attempt to lay the cable, about ten miles was lost; on the second, about one hundred, and iweniy-five miles, and on the 28 th the cable was again joined, and about two hundred and fifty miles paid out, when communication ceasing to be received, it was known that the cable had again parted Whereupon the Niagara and Gorgon proceeded to this place. They were much surprised, however, to find that he 'Agamemnon and Valorous had hot preceded them, as they had more man two nunureu miles the start. Rev. M. Spurgeon is coming to Amer ica. . ' j , Madrid. The cabinet is completed. Gen Ross de Alano is the Captain General of Cula. ..(- Difficulties hate occurred between Ger many and Denmark. The Agamemnon is reported to have suffered some dauages in a gale.' After communication ceased the Niagara allow' cd the cable to swing and an additional strain ot lour tons was applied to . the breaks and although blowing fresh, the cable held her an hour when a sudden pitch of sea snapped the cable and the Niagara bore away for Queenstown. bhould nothing be heard of the Agamem non, the Niagara will, after coaling, pro ceed in mid-ocean, having still thirteen hundred miles of cable. It is conjectured the Agamemnon was not delivered with the arranged quantity of coal at the time of the failure and was awaiting the Niag ara. Commercial. Liverpool, July 6.

The Commissioner on Indian Affairs has re ceived a letter from Fort Arbuckle, dated June 22d, stating that the Comancbes were nightly engaged in extensive depre dations. . Gen. Cooper, the Choctaw and Chickasaw . agent, had just started for Washita, where the troubles commenced, but an express bad been sent requesting bis return. There weie but six white men at Fort Arbuckle, and the post might be laiten at any moment. I he Camanches are very much irrita ted by the losses they sustained in the recent conflict with the Texas rangers. The order for the march of the Second Cavalry to Fort Leavenworth has been countermanded, and that regiment will remain on duty in the department of Tex as. vOn the first of.Auguatiho department of Florida will be broken up and the sev eral military stations there will revert to the department of the East. .

One of the sufferers, by the taxation movement of the Zuloaga government had an interview this morning with the Pres ident upon the subject. It is understood that he will make an affidavit of all the facts in the case, and file it in the State Department. Acting under the advice of Minister Forsyth he refused to pay tho tax, and, with another citizen, was com' celled to leave Mexico. It is not nroha ble that Mr. Forsyth would have been directed to withdraw the legation and return home, had he not terminated his functions with the Zuloaga government. Notwithstanding the published state ment, it is well known here that Colonel Kane will not publish a report of his Ulan mission. Sufficient reasons are assigned why this would not advance the public interest. 11 Gov. Denvor left ' this afternoon for Kansas. . FROM SALT LAKE CITY. Sr. Louis, July 21. Joseph B.
