The News. Mr. DawHon having declined the appointment of Governor of Kaunas, ex-Governor Wilson Shannon, ?f Ohio, has been selected for the place. Mr. Shan non was a member of the last Congress, and voted lor the Kansas-Nebraska bill. He may, therefore, prove less objectionable to the squatter sovereigns ?f the new Territory than his predecessor. We publish elsewhere accounts of the recent ter rible riots at Louisville, taken from Know Nothing and anti-Know Nothing journals. Onr readers, therefore, now have an opportunity of reading the ?pinions of the organs of both parties as to the ?rlgin of this tragic event, and possibly of arriving at a satisfactory conclusion as to where the respon sibility should properly rest. With reference to the recent State elections there is but little of a positive character to report. In KENTUCKY there appears to be no doubt of the election of Charles S Morehead, American, to the office of Gov ernor, by a very large majority, and also of the suc cess of the entire Know Nothing State ticket A number of the Congressmen are still in donbt, but the following, judging from the returns as far as re ceived, we believe to be elected: ? tH s.

For Governor, Morehead 3,074, Clark 1,218. For Congress, Marshall 3,057, Preston 1,344. NORTH CAROLINA. As we stated two days back, the Americans have elected their candidates for Congress in the First, Fifth and Siith districts, and the democrata have raeceeded in the five remaining districts, which gives the democratic party the same number of Members in the delegation which they had in the last Congress. TENNESSEE. Nothing certain has been received in regard to the choicc of Governor. Both parties claim the election ?f their candidates, and it may be some time yet before we get sufficient returns on which to base an announcement of the result. Of the election of Con gressmen very little is known beyond the success of Zollikofl'cr, K, N., in the Eighth district. ALABAMA. A despatch states that Shortridge, K. N., is cer tainly elected Governor, and that is about ail the intelligence we have from the State. The Board..at' .Councilmen last night did little taaincES of importance. Most of the evening the Board was in Committee of the Whole, and when the committee rose a resolution was offered directing the Comptroller to publish in his semi-annual re port the amount of carriage hire charged to the Mayor, with the names of the members of the Com mon Council riding at the public expense. This resolution was the feature of the Bession, and was adopted. Id the Board of Aldermen the Finance Committee recommended additional appropriations, amounting to 112*, 321, for the Department of Repairs and Supplies, which recommendation was agreed to. The Law Committee presented a report relative to the refusal of the Mayor to furnish to the Board the names of policemen apppointed siuce 1st of January, lt-35. The committee contend that the Mayor is bound to report the information called for, and argue the point at considerable length and with mnch force. The report concludes with the recom mendation that if the Mayor continues to withhold the desired information, the Corporation Counsel be directed to take legal measnres to enforcc compli ance with the wishes of the Board. An effort was made to adopt the report at once, but finally a mo tion to print prevailed. A special committee, con sisting of Aldermen Ely, Wakcman and Herrick, wan appointed to investigate the charges of corrup tion made against Alderman Moser. It is proposed to erect a new county jail on the corporation pro perty situated between I^udlow and Essex street?, and between Grand and Broome streets. The Alder man of the Eighth ward was appointed to consider the report upon the subject. The steamer James Adger, with the Newfound land telegraphic excursionists on board, arrived at Halifax yesterday forenoon. A despatch tinder the telegraphic head gives a brief sketch of the voyage. The yellow fever continues its ravages at Ports mouth and (Joflport, Va , but at Norfolk it ha* nearly ceased. During the prevalence of the epidemic we have seen the names of sixty-six persons who have died, among whom wo* a family comprising twelve individuals, at the head of which wan Mr. Alexander tioodwin, not one of whom now remain above ground.

Senator Benjamin, of I?nW?na, has written a let ter in opposition to the Know Nothing party. The annual legatta ot the New York Yacht Clnb will come off at Newport on Tuesday next. Five hnndred dollars is the prize to be contended for, and the race will be open to all crews. Wo have datca from Porto Cabello, Venezuela, to the 23d of July. The republic was tranquil, healthy and prosperous. Business was extremely dull, and likely to continue so for some months to come. The stock of coffee did not exceed one thoosund bag*, which could not be purchased under 11 Jc. Hides, on board ship, were quoted at 164, and scarce at that price. German and Spanish merchants were In the market, giving the highest price for all kinds of pro duce. The following notice relative to the packing and repacking of men lumilise has been isaued by the Treaanry Department " All merchandise in public or private bonded warehouies may be examined at any time during the business houra of the port by the importer, consignee, or agent, who shall have liberty to take samples of his goods in quantities ac cording to the osage of the port, make all needful repairs of pa< ksges, and to repack the sutne, pro vided the original contents are placed in the new (ackage, and the original marks and numbers placed ibcreon in the mode prescribed in the s ver?j tiih -ciiion of the act of 2d March, 17'J'J, and I thirty-set oi;d section of the act of 1st March, 1823: ; rovid< <1 thut oo i- iu-'plcH shall bo taken, nor shall .inj gr< us be exhibit id or examined, union* under ii:e immediate sni'orvinion of an inspector of the .u?toniH, ur.d by order of the importer, owner, or eonngtee, at hi.i expense; nor nhall any package be repairfd, or gocds repaeked, without a written order from the collector of the port.'' ' ' " s^'us cotton yesterday reached abont 1,500 buies, the market dosing flroi. Floor was active, without chauge of moment in prices. Wheat was tinner, especially for good white. Fair Southern red sold at $1 <jo a $1 95; white ditto, at $2 12; and a cargo of superior North Carolina white at $1 25. Indian corn was about one cent a bushel higher. Sales of Western mixed were pretty freely made at 87ic., including one cargo at 8?c. Pork was active and firmer. Sugars were in good demand, with/ree ales at quite full prices. Cofle-e was also firm, with free sales of Java at 14Jc. The advance in corn de pressed the rates for its shipment to Liverpool, while cotton wus taken at 3-ltid. Kansas and the Restoration of the Missouri Compromise? A Difficulty. It is a notable feature ol the times that the great abolition movement in the North, em bracing the organization of the republican party by the Sewards and Van Burens, the fusion in Ohio, under Chase, and the original negro worshippers in Massachusetts and New England, is now made to hinge almost exclu sively on the restoration of the Missouri com promise, and the defeat of the people of Kan pas in their asserted rights of self-government. It is a great point gained when an issue is se cured from an unscrupulous opponent. Whether the agitators have been driven off from other points, or on to this, it makes little difference. The former is probably the ease, as the fugitive law, the Wilmot proviso, and hall a dozen other specific aggressions of the* oligarchy, seein to have lost their force. Mas sachusetts, Vermont, Ohio, and Wisconsin, ran the opposition to the Fugitive act entirely un derground. They overloaded the subject with so much of folly and madness, it is no wonder that even the people of Massachusetts ? a peo ple who elected a Hiss Legislature and a \\ ilson to the fcenate, and licensed their repre sentatives to run a muck anwfngst its women and children, ami were in ecstacies of triumph when they found that the sacred cloisters of female worship could not shield the affrighted devotees from the paid spies of the old Com monwealth ? it is no wonder that even such a people should turn in disgust from their follies, and shirk off the Fugitive law for the more distant and less dangerous matter of the resto ration ol the Missouri compromise, and flat footed opposition to the people of Kansas upon the question of self-government. If ever a people had reason to doubt the propriety of popular sovereignty, it is the vaunted freemen of Massachusetts. If that principle in government has been impeached, or its practical exercise seriously brought in question, wc may appeal, not to Kansas, Min nesota, or New Mexico, but to New Englaud, for testimony in that behalf. Taking the worst view of the flisovders of the Territory presided over by Gov. Reeder, and they become harmless election disputes compared with the studied treason of the Legislature of Massa chusetts against the Union of the States, and the exercise of popular rights. The question is now narrowed down to the Kansas perlidy ? to the "desertion** of the North by the "doughfaces"' ? and the remedy for all this is restoration and repeal ! It is a little remarkable that those who deem them selves aggrieved as members of the Federal I n ton, and call for restitution, are in open rebellion against the constitution and laws of the United States. But no matter. At pre cisely this point the issue is made. The Fugi tive law, the Tempcrancc farce, and all other rituals of agitation and folly, are thrust aside for the trial of the question of the repeal of the Kansas act, aud the restoration of the Missouri compromise. That work accom plished. and even the Courier and Enquirer will lapse into its former conservative position ? will give up Garrison and Tappan, and again take to the constitution and the fraternal harmony of the States. It will lie seen that there arc two questie>ns involved in this "republican*' programme of repeal ? the one affecting the compromise, and tlifi other the right of the people of Kansas to carry on their present government. It is well to be practical in the application of remedies when we propose to apply them. In this view, is it not obvious that the restoration of the act of 1820 would fail to abrogate government in Kansas? Is it not equally plain that the repeal of the Terri torial law would also fail essentially to affect the present rule there ? The success of both these measures would leave the people of Kan pas precisely where the Californiann found themselves, without any Territorial act, but with ample ability and will to provide a system of laws suited to their condition and necessities. Kansas has already organized her government, and the continuance of the law of Congress un der which she has so far acted is no more ne cesary to its vitality and stability than is the fifth wheel to the movement of a coach. We may as well look this question directly in the face, that we may not spend too much time in foolishly trying to mould it to our own views. The Missouri compromise controlled Kansas very well as long as that Territory had no in habitant*; it was not expected to do more. .So long as there were no people to exercise the powers of freemen ? so long as the Territory had no other signification than that of lands ? it was all very well. Iudecd. nobody has doubted the eflicacy of that act, as the soul of a mere the ory: ? as a practical limitation of the people, it never had any binding force, or even the charm of temporary control. To test this, it is only necessary to anticipate its full restoration; aud even go tarther, and repeal the Territorial law. do away entirely with the "perfidy," annihilate all tlx' ?' dough faces," and what have you accomplished ? Hy this paper conquest, have yon destroyed the government of Kansas ? Have you limited the rights of popular sovereignty there! Ila\e you brought its people into subjection to your anti-slavery or your slavery ideas? None of these n Milt will follow your work". You will have yonr l;il.or for your pains. Th'- people hav>> established an independent govn'iinn'nt th??r>\ subject to the provisions .if the constitution >>1 the I'nited States, and it is impossible to change it.

Neither the constitution or the deduction* of common sen?e, in this r. spoet, recc^nl/e ?uy betwen a Territory a ^f'ate :n th? exercise of the ordinary rights ot govern ment. Judge McLean fays: "A State cannot divot itself of the essential attributes oi Kovereignty. It cannot enter into a compact not to excise Its legislative and judicial func tions or its elective rights, because this would l.o to change the form of government guaran tee by the federal constitution.'' What this ??form of government" is, is apparent. Indeed, if there is p?nt in the nature of American policy made more obvious than another, it is thai of popular sovereignty-tbat the people sha be considered the primary fource of power. the eorner stone and foundation of the icpu > lie. It is a pervading principle, admitting ot no material exceptions. The case of the District of Columbia, the seat of the federal government end the home of its patronage-a source ot perpetual compensations and bribes-is the only radical violation of the rule. The constitution never contemplated the e. 'stence of any other Territory. It treats other organized communities as States; and to a egal intents and purposes, in the exercise o elective rights, they are States. We have endeavored thus to separa e question of the restoration of the act of 1 from that of the repeal of the Territorial law of Kansas. The former is a lifeless medium o political excitement and of sectional bitter ness? the latter ia an incipient State of the confederacy in process of rapid increase, an in spite of its detractors will soon add its pro ductions to the commerce of the world, has the power alike to govern itself and to vindicate its character from assaults, from whatever source. It is a living element in the American system of organized labor anc rule, resting upon boundless capabilities, easy and sure of devclopemcnt. The question is, whether It shall be governed by its own people or by an act of Congress passed thirty-five vears before it had an existence? an act which never had its origin in the American policy a bantling of excitement, an abortion of re vo lution. Its existence was a shame to leg ami a dfc.gr"* to .be government to which its incubation was committed. It is a worthy subject for the negro worshippers worthy of the " republican ? party ot Seward, Wilson and Chase? of their exclusive labors , worthy of the Tribune, the Time*, and the Courier and Enquirer* But what is to l?e gained by restoration and repeal' Is it to provide another compromise, to reach away oft' in the future, and again to topple over and crumble to dust when called upon to interpose its lifeless inhibitions against the fixed laws of population? Can the free men of the North he saved from slavery only by leaning on such a fragment of folly, and denying the rights of popular sovereignty to Kansas? Are we thus called upon to enslave the whites in order to prevent a citizen of Kentucky from taking his labor into the pub lie. Territory? Are the people of Kansas to be driven out, and provisions made to settle that Territory exclusively under the super vision of the Emigrant Aid Society . There is but one idea involved in the programme ot the negro worshippers, as a practical question. What is it ? What is it ? \MERICAV AM) EnOUSH WxTEHISO Pl. VCKS John bux and Brother Jonathan in t.ik.r Dimmer Retreats. ? W e present to our readers to-day, a large hatch of correspondence from all the principal watering places in the I- .11011, together with a well written and interesting letter descriptive of society at the English sorinM. From these chapters of social life, in its freest and gayest aspects, much amusement and some instruction may be gleaned. It we have not an opportunity of seeing ourselves as other? see us. we have at least the advantage of instituting a comparison, where a compari son may be useful. . , . , There is one noticeable feature in the let ters of our correspondents which gives us sincere pleasure, and which, we have no doubt, will be attended with a beneficial effect. It will be seen that they one and all set their faces against the attempts made in some ot the watering places to convert the healthful enjoy ments of the country into the dissipation and extravagance which characterize the society of our larger cities. Such a perversion of God s most enjoyable gifts ought to be strenuously resisted and written down. The foolish ambi tion and rivalry which suggest it are produc tive of sufficiently mischievous conscqucnces in their original sphere, without their being .suf fered to poison and destroy those rural plea sures in which the overtaxed mind seeks relief What chances arc there of tranquillity and con valescence for the invalid, when he knows that the fashionable outfit of his wife and daughters for the springs will plunge him into pecuniary difficulties and harrassing anxieties for the re mainder of the year ? How many cares, too, of u more delicate character may not the free asso ciation with what is called fashionable society in such places bring with it ! Composed but too frequently of shameless intrigante a, for tune hunters, gamblers, and unprincipled adventurers of all sorts, nothing can be more dangerous than close contact with it. It is the duty, therefore, of every one who has the least regard to the interests and happiness of his family, to prevent them mixing with or imi tating the habits of these so-called fashionables. They ar<> all pursuing a game which can nei ther benefit the morals nor the reputations ?f respectable people. In another point of view these letters will Ih> found useful. To persons in almost all condi tions of physical derangement, they will sug gest both a choice of the localities ?uit<-d to their complaints, and >erve as a sort of guide to them. No country in the world possesses a greater variety of natural remedial agents in the shape of mineral waters, than this; and the case must be a peculiar one, indeed, which will not be in some way benefitted by their use. For those to whom they are prohibited, there are other resources in the fine surf bathing and refresh ing breeies of our extensive and varied coast M-enrry; whilst in cas^s wher>' the mountain air alone is required, we have, within a few hours' distance of our city, some of the most picturesque and delightful spots in th" world. If invalids will only be satisfied to leave be hind them their fashionable prejudices and <Mty habits, they may tind in some one or oth<>r of these places tlx healing and renovating influ j .<!??, -s of which they are in search.

We publihhed on I in -day last an editorial paragraph statiag that there was an error in the translation of the ad, Ire*, of Jhc Cuban Junta, which appeared the previous day iu our columns, and which made them complain of the coldness and op position of the American people. The amende was made at the request of the Secretary of the Junta, and in the absence from town ot our translator. He has since returned, and re spectfully insists on the fidelity and correct ness with which the document in question was rendered. The only paragraph about which there is any question is the following, which we give in the original, with the translation of it, as published: ?

And If these stigmas were the only ones which the ad m nistration cast upon the national character, they might p< rhaps be washed away in the bath of its own cowardlcp and inaptitude. But there are other re^nXnitle* tlon. which *1"! r<r?\ f"r th" &r,>at <l?y ?f revela tions. whn h may then condemn the national character lo the animadversion of all the generous hearts of the world. It will be seen by any person having a gram matical knowledge of the Spanish languuge, that the point in dispute consists in the proper rendering of the little pronoun lo in the last section. It is the accusative masculine for it. The Junta say that they intended it to apply to the administration: our translator made it ap ply to the national character. Which is the correct rendering ? .Our translator contends that his is the only proper grammatical con struction that can be given to the sentence, and gives the following reason. The phrase la actual administration, in the same paragraph, is feminine, and if the application as to the ani madversion of the world was intended to apply to the administration, the word la (the accusa tive feminine) should have been used instead of lo (the masculine). But the phrase el rarac Ur de m nation, in the preceding sentence, is masculine, and the pronoun lo, in the following one. can ouly grammatically apply to it. And that is the interpretation, it will be seen, which our translator has given it, and which is in perfect harmony, we think, with the succeed ing and other paragraphs. The Cuban Junta will see, and doubtless ac knowledge, that if their ideas have been mis construed, it was their own, not our transla tor s fault, and that in all such cases, where there might possibly 1? a doubt of the meaning of a sentence, precision of language and clear ness of expression are most desirable. Where the error is their own, they should certainly not seek to shift the responsibility. Newspaper Impostors.? We have been shown another letter from our soidisant associate, Mr. J. F. Carman, in the same terms as the last. It runs as follows:? Mr Dkar Sir: ? My new IF8- , ?*)& "T Y"r?\ -2 "-Win t!FSSFZ?? tn il? r y' "r"V"'"'K ri,"lcr p reused for paper, 1 wiHh to beg of you the loan and favor of $10, which I will re b^k?ag?h.0nit day' toSether wiHi a few copiei of the respectfully, ^ P?r STiaKS?* yourii. Assistant Editor New York IIhuu). Mr. Carman, it appears, has been going pret ty extensively into the business. When he wrote to thcMcthodifltsor the piously inclined, he called himself an assistant editor of the Commercial Advertiser; to the merchants and the public at large he assumed the title of assist ant editor of the Herald. In both cases the modest creature only asked for ten dollars, which he was to repay, and givebooka into the bargain. Once for all, the attaches of the Herald ex pect and want neither loans, favors, nor gra tuities of any kind from the public, or the people with whom they come into contact in the way of business. Any one who, pretending to belong to the Herald, writes letters like Mr. ( nrman s is an impostor. Any one who under the like pretence, seeks to travel free on a railroad, is an impostor. Any one who, under cover of the Herald's name, endeavors to pass as a deadhead at hotels, or any where else, is an impostor, and will we hope be treated as such. No one connected with this establish ment is authorized or desires to avail himself of the old fashioned immunities of the press, in order to practise economies which are not open to the rest of mankind. The public is lairly warned; it must now take care of its?lf. Thcrlow Weed on the American Paktt. ? VTlie Albany Journal lias made the astonishing discovery that while the platforms of the Know Nothing State Councils North of Mason and Dixon's line are of the anti-slavery stripe, those on the South side are of the most decided pro-slavery character. This is old news. We had supposed that the split in the Philadelphia Council had left the party in each section and in each State to take Its own course on the slavery question, and that they have been act ing independently of each other, in pursuance of the Philadelphia plan of agreeing to disa gree for the present. The truth is, that all par ties, upon all questions ? especially the slavery question ? are all adrift, North and South. East and West, except as sectional organizations. Nor is there any visible nucleus or prospect of a national organization in 1H56, except from the materials of the American party, and their reconstruction upon the living practical issues of the day, with a strong, sound, reliable con servative man at the helm. In the mean time, Know Nothing State platforms signify little or nothing.

According to the latest a - J counts, the Kansas experiment of " squatter sovereignty" will have produced a pretty k<>t tlo of fish lor the approaching Congress, it appears that the*1 border ruffians," not satisfied w iih the removal of Reedor, have named a man ol their own as his successor; that the Legisla ture of Kansas is composed largely of Missouri J ans who still live in Missouri; that they have moved 4he seat of government to suit their own convenience, in sspite of the Governor's pro test; and, finally, that they have adopted a resolution imposing a fine of fivis dollars upon i any man in the Territory who shall-call <!ov. Ileeder by any higher civil title than Squire Keeder. All these knotty and embarrassing proceedings are of course too much for Mr. President Pierce. He will let thi'in ran on ; he lias burnt his fingers badly enough already in this Kansas business. The squatters and ?? border ruffians," on both sides, meantime, are preparing for war in earnest; but tljey may go to war with impunity. Our administration is afraid to touch them, one way or the other. Our only hope, therefore, of escaping a bloody wur among the " border ruffians" is, that hos tilities may be delayed till Congress can inter fere. What a glorious administration ! The Tkxaxa and the Mexican Revolution ists.' ? We perceive by our exchanges that the frontier people of Texas are preparing to lend a helping hand to the Mexican rcvolutionistsj with a view to the annexation of the northern provinces of Mexico to the United States. The game is hardly worth the candle. cThe people of Texas had better let the Mexicans fight it out among themselves, for the result is inevitable, sooner or later, and we can* a? ford to wait a little longer, especially with the present fanatical and threatening free soil and abolition agitation upon our hands. Moreover, we have some treaty obligations to fulfil towards Mexico, which should not be dis regarded by the magnanimous people of Texas. We should also be glad to be informed by Mr. Pierce's organs of the "difference betwixt tweedle dum and tweedle dec." Under the threats of England and France, the whole power of the administration, on land and sea, has been brought to bear against the Cuban Junta and their associate liberators; while, as it appears, the Mexican revolutionists and Texan filibusters make our side of the boundary a place of retreat and military rendezvous at their convenience, and without the slightest molestation from the United States authori ties, civil or military. We should like to know from the Washington Union whether Marcy is still the friend of Santa Anna, or is in this Texas border conspiracy to despoil him of half his empire. Our exterior and border troubles seem to be getting worse and worse every day. An Oi.n Foot Wakinq Up. ? One of our Wall street cotemporaries kicked a little the other day, and softly remonstrated against the programme of whig, free soil and abolition fusion, as laid down by the Seward Astor House Junta. The same deliberate and modest old fogy becomcs, however, a little excited on learning that the '-free democracy" of this State ? the free soilers proper of the Hale and John Jay party ? have issue'd a manifesto dis banding their forces and proclaiming a junc tion with Seward's Holy Alliance. The old Wall street whig is indignant. But what will he do? Will he surrender or submit? Gen. Webb has led the way. Fall in. It is absurd to be fastidious about our company in war times. Rely upon it, the whig party is dead, and its remains are buried in this Seward fusion of the nigger loving factions. Let our old Wall street whig fall in. We cannot otherwise provide for him.

The Common Council very properly instituted an inquiry into the matter of the ten new omnibuses licensed to run on Broadway, and received from the Mayor an answer justifying his right to license omnibuses. He argues that the new law does not deprive him of the right he pos sessed under the old one, and ho on. Mr. Wood evades or mistakes the issue. The question is not whether he, as Mayor, had or had not the right to license new omnibuses on Broadway; but whether it was right and proper so to do, the state of the street duly considered. The public opinion is that Broadway is sufficiently crowded as it is ; that ten new omnibuses will add to the inconvenience already felt by the community; and that Mayor Wood had far , better try to explaiu why be inflicted that ad ditional inconvenience than enter into a com mentary on the law. The Cextkai, Park. ? Why have the Com missioners appointed to tracc and lay out ihc Central Park not made their report ? Suppose (he Common Council request the Corporation Attorney to answer this question, or, in ca?che cannot, to institute the inquiries necessary to elicit an answer from the proper quarter. These Commissioners have been at work two years or thereabout*, at a cost to the city of twenty dollars a day. It does not appear that the task they were to perform ought to have taken over a part of a single season. Let the Common Council inquire how long the city is to pay the $20 per diem, and when we shall have the report? Cabinet Movements. ?

A correspondent of the Republican, writing from Fort I aramie, under date of July 16, says that all was quiet in tbat region. Captain Foote's company of infantry had arrived. Colonel Howe's dragoons were met within fifty miles of Fort Kearney, 'lhe road was lined with trains, and lho,-e attending them were all well. No Sioux Indianti were seen on the route. Cholera was prevailing with great fatality at Fort Riley. Major Ogden was among its victims. Several companies of troops and a large number of mechanic* were there.

The steamer James Adger, from New York, with the New York ajid Newfoundland Telegraph Company ex cursionist* on board, has arrived at this port. We are indebted to a distinguished gentleman in the telegraphic world for the following graphic account of the trip thus far: ? We arrived here at eleven o'clock this morning, just three days from New York by the outside of l/-ng Island route. The weather was extremely pleasant until yes terday afternoon. We passed tbe ateaiurhip Baltic, bound to New York, and saw numerous whales and a fleet of from one hundred to one hundred and fifty fish ing be/ate catching cod. Our party consists of tid persons, composed of religious, literary, legal, medical, scientific, ?telegraphic and business gentlemen and tb< ir ladies . Yesterday afternoon a storm arose, increasing in fury until near midnight, during which the Adgvr behaved well. Captain Turner is a perfect trump, and so are hi* officers and crew. Wo were within fifteen or twenty miles of this port last night, but the storm prevented the possibility of getting a pilot, and we put off to sea for safety, and after being tossed about all nigbt came io this morning. We coal here and start this afternoon for Port au Basque, where we take a 2,000 ton ship in tow for Cape Breton, to pay out tbe cable across the <>ulf of St. Ijiwrence, thence we proceed across the tanks of St. Johns, N. F. Halifax is a fine place, and tbe ladies are pretty. We must annex l>efore long. The gentlemen luivr proved themselves quite agreeable. Telegraph to Holmes' Hole, Kdgarton and Nantucket. , Bowon, August 10, 1855. Tbe Boston and Cape Cod Telegraph Company have de cided to extend their wires, by a strong submarine cable, of the same siie as that now being laid down between New foundland and Nova Scotia, to Holmes' Hole (Martha's. Vineyard), Edgarton and Nantucket; and we l?arn that contracts were made to-day binding tbe company to have the line completed on the 1st of November. Th<* proposed line will prove of great value to tho shipping interest, n? it will place the important points named inconstant com munication with this city at all seasons of the y-ar.
