Whfn ihi* great proj?9t m *po*en of a few jeari ago, it wau condemned at aaee as utt-rly impracticable, ?uid tho** who ad routed it were ?ne?red at a* little b?t ter tl>i a w *ionarlae. Ahanrred oojectioas were urged ngaintt t and it wan supposed for a time tbat it hai been abandoned. Hut ibo*e who had con ceived ihe kiea were thoroughly prast'c*) nun; they had money aid mean* at their ditposal; they had eximin* t all the objectloM, and arrived at th* conclusion after * calm and impartial consideration of the whole cubjeet, tbat it could be utrrted into effect. They contented tbat if it were possible to lay a sub marine telegraph between Rowland and France, tbat, with proper mean* and facilities the same could be done between Amer ca and Enrope, aod tho*e mean* and faoiHti* 8 , tney a?aert*d, were at t'aeir dlaposal. The work, we UBi'n-n'onl, has not been commenced y?t,batth* con tract btk been made and everything prepared to insur* it* complttixi by the specified time. must be mtaftteu. m a atnpendoa* one; out so many things have Mnepiied to fay or those who have undertaken it, that there i? little reason now to doubt of it* ultimate suc diB. Aod here, before entering into a description of the detail* of thi* work, we will cigress a little for the purpose of showing tbe progrei a that has already bee* made in telegraphing from tbe time of it* dUcovery to the present, and the remarkable and almost incredible results wtiich have been aoconplished through it* agency. The il'*t electric telegraph established in the United State* was between Washington and Baltimore, in 1841. The patent waa secured by th* inventor (Professor Morse) n 1837, by whom the electro- magnetic ajency waa fully developed about (ire year* previous. Before this, many attempt* h*d been made in Europe to em ploy etootrieity in the trans mission of intelligence from distant points, bat with only partial sneoea*. The credit of disoorery is claimed by a number of others, among whom are Mr. Alexander Bain, Profeeeor* Cbazlea T. Jackson and Sti-n'niel, all of whose title* to it appear to be equally valid w th that of Pro fessor Morse. The first telegraph, a* w* have stated, was constructed between Washington and Baltimore, a distance o* about forty mile*, by Professor Morse and hi* associate*? Congress having made a grant of thirty thousand doliars to enable Ihem to put it in operation. The *uece?j which attended this led to the establlahment of another line the following year, between New York, Philadelphia and Wilmington, from which it wai ex traded, id 1846, to Baltimore. This, at the time, was eoneidered astonishing progress, and it was prophesied that before ten years the principal cities of the Union ?would be brought into instaat communication; but th moat ar>i?nt enthusiast never ^reasaed that the day would come when the same intimate connection would he eatabl.Hbed between the Old World and tbe Mew. Dur ing the y?ar 1840, aline waa opened from Albany t .Buffalo, *od another from New York to Boston. Th const rue ton of other lines followed in inch rapid auc oersston, that in the course of eleven years? that is from 1P44 to the present time ? their aggregate length extender) 'orty-two thou tan d miles. This is not all, however lor a telegraph line to the Pacific has not only been proposed, but a oompany has been already or ganized Had a charter obtained for the purpose. By the time this and a number of others at present in contem plation are completed, we should not be surprised if we had one hundred thou land milts of telegraph in the United Mate* alone. In Europe the progress of tbe work has not been so rapid, and the total length of the lines ooapleted, or in Mnrse of completion, does not exceed thirty thousand mile*. Tbi* includes tbe line* established by the Rus sian government in it* own dominions, both before and since the commence <nent of the war. Hera, then, we have an aggregate of seventy-two thousand mile* of telegraph on both continents, which it is propoied to connect by a separate and distinct line stretched across the bed of the Atlantic. TDK SUBHABIKE TBLKORIPH. In 18f 0 it was proposed to lay a telegraph between ^Dovsr and Calais, but so many difficulties were present in the way of auoh an undertaking that it wat con ^sidered slmoet impossible. The wire, U was proved by usat attempts, ooald not be wholly insulated, and Meet He fluid, as it passed along it, was to diffused contact with the water as to lose its efficiency, imp, saturated with tar. was employed; but in course time it waa found that the water penetrated through at, and the project was about being abandoned aa P?Inf, wben a new mtter'al was discovered which m found to answer the purpose when everything else i failed. Fortunately just at this very time, wben it is most needed, the valuable properties of gutta rcha apd its entire adaptabilty to this purpose were ide kx wn. It was tested with the most signal sucoess Found not only to resist the action of the water, but ^that it would not interfere with the progress jf the slecirlc fluid as it passed along the wire. This mportao* fact once established, the attempt to con net a snb marine telegraph bstwssn France and Bug d was made, and with the most gratifying re built. A 'artery for the manu'acture of the "sub ma tee telegraph cable, ' ' as it was called, was erected in J,fogl*ad ia 1861, and by September of that yeer twenty 'our miles of it were made and ready to be laid down Yom Calais to Dover. The cable used was composed of the gutta peroha which enclosed the wires, hemp steep id in a solution of tar and tallow, and iron wire, of the ickect kind. The process of manufacturing this ca ts exceedingly simple. The copper wire, which is not ueh thicker than the wire of which pins are made, is plstely covered by gutta peroha. Four of these, of which is about as thick as an ordinary sized ipe stem, are bound round with hemp prepared as we ve described, and over this again ia wound the iron The winding of this wire requires great care to t ite breaking, as It would be next to impossible repair any damage after it waa laid. Nine miles of cable can be manufactured every day. The cable of four wires which connects Do *r with Calais, Is about an ia?h and a half n dif meter, and is galvanised, to keep It from justing. We saw a specimen of this cable which 5iad been taken up after lying in the water for four '-?an, and it was aa perfeit a a when first put down. In tddition to this, there are two other oablee, oae can -Meting Calais with Ostead, and the other connecting <oodon with the Haft*. As each of these have four , vine, there are twelve altogether for the transmission i news between Great Britain and the Continent "hese, however, are net the only submarine telegraphs rhleh have been constructed in the Old World, for we Ind that the French and Sardinian governments are at - ireeent mgaged ia the completion of one extending from iareeilles to Algiers, by way of Speisia, Corsica and ?rdinia. Of this line about 280 miles will be under rater, and will bo oompoaed of cables containing four fires. When finished, the connection between Europe ad Africa win be complete, and as tt la proposed y the Rnglish goverment to run a telegraph coaaeetioa with this across the northern of Africa, by way of the Isthmus of Vj) /, to their possessions in the East, three oontinents fa -be brought into aa direst communication with each ae New York and Mew Orioana. Surprising as aU enterprises may appear, they dwindle Into iaslgai eaaee compared wftk that to which we have alluded la bsgiuniac of this article? THE UKKAT ATLANTIC tCDNARINE TKLBORAPS.

Kobtrti, Chandler White* ' resident Peter Coop?r. Vice President Chandler White. Treasurer Moses Tavlor. Electrician Samuel F. B. Mono. These gentlemen, about a year and a balf ago, having carefully weighed and considered the difficulties by which the enterpriae waa beast, applied to the colonial government of Newfoundland lor a charter granting them tbe exclusive privilege, for fifty yean, of ranatng a telegraph as rose teat island, and through any of the adjacent waUrs. After several weeks of negotiation, they not 'only succeeded in obtaining this, but aa an encouragement to the enterprise, five thousand pounds sterling were appropriated by tbat government towards tire construction of a briile path aerosti tbe island, whitfb was considered isdispecsable far tbe regulation and repair of the telegraph. Their liberality, bo* ever, did not stop nere; for realizing the great advantage such a work would be in opening up tbe country and in developing its re?oarc?s, they secured to tbe company tbe interest on fifty thousand pounds sterlitg for twenty years, snd them a present of fifty square miles of land, waich they are at liberty to ?elect in any part of the island. Tbe conditions on which these generous gifts have been made, ia tbe oom pletirn of tbe line to St. John's. In addition to all this, fifty more miles will be given when the lino is laid across tbe Atlantic. The charter hu been ratified by the borne government, and the work ia at present ra pioly progressing towards completion, lhey were also successful in obtaining an eiclualve charter from Priaoe Edward Ialand for the same term, and purchased one which bad been previously obtained in New Brunswick. It was still necessary, however, for them to seoure one ft om Canada, giving tbem full liberty to cross any part of tbe territory which they might consider necei. eary. la addition to the fifty miles presented by tbe government of Newfoundland, they received 1,000 acres from that of Princs Edward's I? land, and were granted every privilege they a*ked, and which tbey deemed necessary to carry out their work successfully. Tbe company having now obtained all, and mora than tbey bad asked for, proceeded energetically to work, and, aa a preliminary step, made a contract with Pro fesscr Morse, by wblch they secured the use of his patents and all renewals. A steamer waa purchased and sent to Newfoundland with an engineer and assistants, and, about aix hundred men having been engaged, opera tions were immediately commenced. The route over whioli the line waa to be constructed is a perfect wilder nees, and presents, one would suppose, aa almost In superable obstacle in the way of the enterprise; but such wsa tbe energy brought to the work that it will be com pleted in less than four months. While tbe oompany bad men employed in clearing the wilderness and coa structing their liae, they had others engaged in the , selection of and exploration of the land which had been granted by the government. The services of three mi neralogists were secured, and their investigations re tutted in tbe diaoovery of two coal mines, one lead mine and ore of copper, besides valuable trasta of ship tim ber atd seveial quarries of alabaster and elate. Tbe diaoovery of these ia only one of the many benefit! wh ch it is expected the new telegraph will confer upon tbat portion of the British poteeaaioos. The length of tbe route which will be traversed by the liae of the new company ia seven hundred miles, and extends from St. Jahna to Cape Tormentine. Commencing at thia cape, it runs through the Btraita of Northum berlasd to Prince Edward's Ia'anc*, a distance of ten milee and a balf; tbeace to Cape East, thmoe to Cape Breton, and thence to St. Johns. A portion of this route ia laid with submarine telegraph. Tie company have entered into an agreement with tb* companies whose lines ran from New York to New Brunswick, through Boston and Maine. Bat fas the great objects, to tbe accomplishment of which all these operations may be regarded as to* rely preliminary, could not be undertaken without the atslstanc* of some tele graph company in Europe, they deputed one ot their number to visit England, for tbe purp ?ee of securing tbe co-operation of one of the principal companies therf. Ihe same success which attended them in their previous negotiations, followed them her*. A contract was made with tho ? -Trans- Atlantio Telegraph Company," com posed of French and imglish capitalists, by which that company agreed to oonatruct and lay down at their own expense and risk, a submarine cable extending from Ireland to St. Johns, at the time already stated. This contract afro binds tbe two companies to operate in con nection with each other, to the sic la* ton of all other lines for tbe period of fifty years. We were shown a specimen of the cable which is to be laid across tbs Atlantic, and which has no less than six wires. It is about two Inches in diameter, and is considered strong enough to bear all the straining to which it may be subject. The whole expense of its manufacture and laying down is estimated at ten millions of dollars, but such are the expectations that have been formed of ita success, that it will more than pay for itself in three months. This may soem in. credible; but if the calculations which have been made in regard to it are borne out, the receipt* will amount to over six time* the amoant of capital invested in it. In justice, however, to the company, w* must say that they have formed no suoh est' mate of its suoosss, al though they are confident that it will pay liberally. The cable, as wo have said, has six wires, and these are ca pable of transmitting seventy- two thousand words in twenty-four hours. Mow, the rate which it is propose! to charge, is twenty-five dollars for every ten words, and if all tbe wires are in constant operation, the annual receipts will, at this rate* amount to sixty-five millions seven hundred thou sand dollars? an almost fabnlous amount. We are authorised to state, however, that if all the wires are kept in constant operation the rate will be reduoed to the lowest possible figure, which wiO pay them a fair and reasonable interest m tbe capltol Invested. The weight of the great submarine cable will be eight toes to the mile, making an aggregate of about thirteen thousand tons, which will require at least four of the largest atoed steamers in its laying down. In this connec tion we may state that there is at present building in England, a steamship seven hundred feet in length, and capable of carrying over twenty thousand tons. Should she be finished in time, she may be employed in laying this gigantic cable. It would certainly be a good idea to employ the largest vessel ever constructed in laying the greatest submarine telegraph the world has ever heard of. We have spoken of the suocess which attended all the movements ef tbe company, but there is one remarkable faet connected with U, which is still more deserving of mention. It was at lint feared that the inequalities which were suppoeed to exist In the bed of the osean between Ireland and Newfoundland would present an 'neurmountable barrier to the completion of the pro ject; but It has been proved by Lieut Maury that there are no rach Inequalities tn this parte* the ocean. In the summer of 1863, Lieut. Berry man, In command of the United State* brig Dolphin, was employed in making deep sea sounding* along the purposed rout* from Newfoundland to Ireland, Lieut. Maury says, the distance between the nearest point* to one thousand six hundred mil**, and the bottom ef tbe sea between theae is a plateau, whioh appear* to have been placed there especially for the purpos* of holding the win* ot a sub marine telegraph, and of keeping them nut of harm'* way. It to neither to* deep no* too shallow, y*t It Is so deep that the wires, once landed, will remain forever beyond the reach of vessels, anchors, icebergs, and drift* of any kind; and so shallow that the wires may fee readily lodged upon the bottom. The depth ef th* plateau to quite r*f ular, gradually iacmslaf from tbe ihorM of .Vewf.unilaod, frtm the Cap'U of fifteen han dled to two f?thow> it it approaches ttoae of Ireland. A wir# llU AJtOi* from Newfoundland would pace to the north of the Grand Banks, anl rest on the plateau alluded to, aed where tbo waters of the see, ac cording to Lieut. llanry, eppevr as quiet sad as ocmpletely at rent as the bottom of a milt pood Be u;i that there are no perceptible curreaU' and no abrading agents at wotk at the bottom of the sea upon this t-lrgraph plateau; and this Infer enoe be derlvee from the etudy of a fact which beoam kt9waU>b*min making deep sea windings Lieut Berry Olid, >Mppe?re, brought up with the app?ret<u specimens of the boiivB from this plateau, whloh, whin examined with the micfJHtof, *??

Here, iheo, Id this timely discovery of t-wut Usury, and in tbat of the pccull <r anil valuable propertied of gotta ptrnha natuie itaeir appears to haw in favrr of the great submaiina telegraph, which is to con neet Europe und Amtrica. Whatever optoione others may eutertaln of its probabls sucoesa, tooeo wbo have undertaken tbe work, and who have invested tteir capi tal in tbe unctrtakmg, are mint sangutn* regarding it; andtleyare men who, we think, wou d not be e.eily carried away by their enthusiasm if the proepecti of eucceea, were not very certain. Kf FKCT8 OF THE 8U0C?BI? OP TUB SUBMABUfl TKLS SKAPH Tbe first fact that strikes a person in considering the effects which muat reenlt from the eucotes or this enter priae, is the annihilation of bothepace and time between the Old and the New Worlds. We can have the new* here almost ae eoon as it ia known in England, and pub' lbh It eimnltaneoosly with the English pipers Thus the Herald will be enabled to publish tie proceedings in the British Parliament, ths Intelli gence from the seat ot war and any other important in formation, on the same morning that it appears in the Time*. We might go somewhat further, and aay tha^ we eonld publish the news before it transpires; tbat ia, if we made no allowance for the difference between Bng lieh and American time. Say, for instance, that the line had been completed before the death of the late Cur, and that intelligence of the event reached Eng land at four o'clock in the afternoon, we would have received it at eleven o'clock on the morning Of the same dsy, as the sun rises five hours earlier on the English than be does on us New Yorkers. The proceedings Of the stock markets in London, Liverpool aad many of the principal oitiea in Europe, may also be made known through the telegraph to our merchants before they meet on 'Clange. Ihen, again, our great meroantile fiims can trammit their orders by it to dif ferent psrts of Europe, and countermand them with the same rapidity, should they find it their internet to do ro. It is hardly possible to calculate the effects of this stupendous undertaking if successful; and if laid, there can hardly, it ia thought, be a doubt of its success in a pecuniary point of view. When it ii con sidered tbat it will be connected with the various lines on both sides of the Atlantic, and that it will be the only means of oo-amunication between tiem, it would seem as if the six wires, of which it i? composed, would l-e Inadequate to the demand that will be made upon them. Such, we are told, is the opinion of some wao have bad a long expei ieoce in teugrapning, aad wh> predict that tefcre five years elapre two sub-mar ne cablei will be tequired instead of one. We bave alloc ed to the enterprise of the English and French governments in tbe eoabltabment of new lines of telegianh through different parts of tnelr dominions, but the nxHteurpiieing feat which they havs yet per formed was in the laying ot th? great aub-mmne cable through the Black ben, a distance of over three huolred milts. Through means of this tha Or m-a -.a brought nto direct sno constant communication with the govern ments at Paris ami Iondon, aud it is said that Louis Napoleon is enabled to direct tbe movements of the army before ?ebsstnpol through the same wonderfal agency. The Bnatfa&gcvernm<nt seems to be aetuated iy the same spirit of enterpriee, and talks of sons trusting telegraph lines even to the utmo?t verge of its dominions. Should It do so, should the East India line oe estaa liahed, and should tbe Atlantic telegraph be suesescfal, we will have a complete girdle around the earth. A company has been already chartered to construct a line along tbe Mississippi to San Franoisoo, thus uniting our Atlantic and Pacific coasts. In tne event of the Russian goverrment carrying out its project, this Bight be con nected with the terminus of their line at the nearest point on tbe extteme boundary of their Asiatic posses sions, and a communication being thus establishes with London by way of Bt. Petersburg, tbe girdle would be complete. Ihoogh this may se?m improbable now, be is a fool who would say, in looking back at th? great progress which has been made in science during the past fllty years, that it is impossible. Base Ball.

There was quite a spirited meeting ef the (old men's) Whig General Committee held last night at the Broad way Honse, General Hall presiding, and Charles S. Tappan officiating as socretary. Among the members In attendance waa Alderman Briggs, just fresh from his rough and tumble fight with Frank O'Keefe. The ill fated Alderman looked quite disconsolate, and loudly proclaimed that the fight was not a fair one, ha being alone, and at least twenty psrsons at him at one time. The Alderman's (nee wss much .cut, and his handker chief saturated withstood, which he every now and then kept applying to his (ace. His lsft eye was much swollen. After the reeding of the minutes, a resolution was oileted by E. Delafield Smith to appoint a committee to inquire into tbe recent police appointments by Mayoc Wood and the Recorder. In tbe discussion that en sued much indignation waa expressed at what they deemed the unjust action of the Police Commissioners, the resolution was adopted, and a committee of Ave ap pointed to pur roe the investigation..
