The Atlantic Telegraph Cable.
The last steamer from England brings the
following:
The shore end of the Atlantic cable was
Sanded and successfully connected with the in
struments on board the Great Eastern. The
SSnight of Kerry invoked success on the under -
?dertaking, and in conclusion called on Sir
Bobert Peel, who made an admirable address.
?Oheers were then given for the President of the
United States, when paying out of the heavy
shore end of the cable commenced. The
splice was completed in the most successful
spanner, and the cable worked perfectly. The
gunboats Terrible and Sphynx accompanied
the Great Eastern. Ajelegram from Valen
cia, dated the 24th of July, says : "Insulation
defects took place on Monday afternoon. The
mischief is supposed to exisfc^ three miles west
of the shore-end splice, and it is believed that
ifc was caused by too much strain from the
Great Eastern. She hove too ten miles from
the shore. The Caroline is picking up and
underrunning the splice and repairing the fault.
It is expected that the damage will be rectified
immediately.
The rest of the cable remains perfect. A
telegram from the Great Eastern, dated the
25thof July, says: "The cable is all 0. K.
again.^ The signals are perfect. A small fault
wa3 discovered and cut out. The Great East
ern is now paying out the cable in lat. 52, long.
12."
From this end of the line we have the follow
ing: Aspy Bay, Aug. 5.?We have succeeded
in getting on board three miles of the New
foundland cable after great labor; the cable,
however, is so much corroded that we have no
hopes of repairing it. In underrunning it
parted three times. We get no tidings of the
steamship Great Eastern as yet.
