Is the Atlantic Telegraph a Failure ?
The general tone of the press on both sides
of the ocean, says the New York Herald,
regarding the Atlantic telegraph, is one of
discouragement at the result of the enter
prise, which they rather hastily and unwar
rantably pronounced a failure. The French
and English papers ridicule our celebration
in commendation of the successful laying of
the cable as premature, and point to the long
silence which has followed the transmission
of the last.dispatch as a proof of the unsuc
cessful termination of the great undertaking.
But should we never get another word thro'
the present cable, is it just to say that the
enterprise has not succeeded, or that the
practicability of the work has not been fully
and completely established ? Have not the
mechanical difficulties which stood in the way
been removed by Mr. Everett's paying out
machine? And although the electrical de
partment has not yet succeeded in rendering
that success permanent, does any one imag
ine that the Atlantic telegraph is a thing of
the past ?—that it is never to be revived ?
Should the present cable never again be
worked and the present company be unable
to carry the enterprise to a more successful
termination, there are others who will be
ready and willing to undertake the task.—
The great benefits which telegraphic commu
nication between this continent and Europe
must confer upon both, form the best guar
antee that could be presented of its ultimate
and permanent establishment. But even if
private companies were not to be found ready
to enter upon the task, thn English and
Armrie,an governments will take it in. baud.
The - practicability of too enterprise once es
tablished, the mere pecuniary conshlerations
connected with it sink into utter insignifi
cance compared with the great benefits which
it will confor upon the commercial world,
independent of the other and grander results
which must follow its successful accomplish
A COURAGEOUS HOUSEMAID.-"lil a detached
cottage at Twickenham, says an English pa
per, has resided for some time an elderly
maiden • lady in very delicate health, whose
establishment consist of a cook and house
maid. On the 14th however, there were only
the housemaid and her sick mistress in the
house. At about 9-i in the evening the
housemaid, whose name is Ann lletford, and
who is a remarable fine, handsome young
woman, twenty-two years old, went into her
mistress' bed-room to inquire if anything was
wanted before retiring to rest. On opening
the door she was astonished to see a lad, not
more than sixteen, standing over her mistress
as sho lay in bed, apparently in the act of
striking her with a bludgeon. Without hes
itating,. she immediately rushed upon him,
closing so rapidly with him that he was una
ble to use his bludgeon. A desperate and
long protracted struggle ensued, the poor in
valid lady awaiting the issue in intense anx
iety. At length the brave girl succeeded in
completely overpowering her antagonist, and
kneeling upon him as he lay upon his back
on the floor she held him down and called to
her mistress to bring her a piece of cord,
with which she firmly secured the bands of
her captive, who was then locked up in spite
of his entreaties for mercy, in a long cup
board, and shortly afterwards delivered up
to the police, to• whom he was well known.—
The lady states that she was asleep, when he
awoke her, and, raising his stick, demanded
her keys.. She was dreadfully frightened,
and was on the point of delivering them up,
when her servant entered the room. The
maid afterwards received a handsome present
from her mistress
