Halifax, Nova Scotia, August 10, 1855. I take advantage of our brief stay at Halifax to send you an account of our progress thus far. On Tuesday morning, at tea o'clock, we left pier No. 4 North river, in the James Adger, with a com pany of about sixty ladies and gentlemen on board. Among these are Messrs. Peter Cooper, Cyrus W. Field, and Professor Morse, all of whom as has been already stated in the Hkbald, are members of the New York, Newfoundland and London Transatlantic Telegraph Company. To hand down the names of the agreeable party on board to posterity, I annex a corrected list:? Peter Cooper, Mrs. Cooper, Professor S. K. B. Morse, Mr?. Morse, Master A. B. Home. Cvrus W.

Punctual to the hour, the steamer swung loose from her pier, and as she moved out into the river we were greeted with three hearty cheers by our friends on shore, which were repeated again and again as we swept past. A salute of three guns was fired from the bow of our own vessel, which was re sponded to by another from one of Spofford & Tiles ton's steamers, and the United States frigate Poto mac honored us as far as the Rtrict rules of the Navy allowed, by running up the stars and stripes to her peak. We were soon under full headway down the bay, and in a few minutes our friends became indis tinguishable in the lengthening distance. The last we saw of them was through a telescope, and there they still stood at the end of the pier waving their adieus. Gradually we lost sight of the larger public buildings, and even the city itself began to disap pear below the horizon. And now we have left Staten Island behind us, and sweeping past Neva sink are out on the open sea. Long Island, how ever, is still in Bight on our larboard, and remains so for what appears to be an interminable length of time. We want to feel that we are out of sight of land, if it is only for the pleasure of saying so on our return; but Long Island continues visible with the moat provoking persistency. It is 3 o'clock? five hours since we left New York? the dinner bell rings, and we descend below, flattering ourselves with the hope that we have seen the last of it; but the first thing we see upon coming on deck is I^ong Island, stretching away far ahead of us as far as the eye can reach. It would now seem to be running a race with ?our steamer, and if it holds oat much longer, promises to be in Halifax before us. The bell rings again, and in due course of time supper is despatched, but Long Island, like a faithful Mend, or rather like an obnoxious associate, is there still when we come ou deck. As the shades of evening gather around our vessel, it becomes shadowy and indistinct, but its low line of coast can still be traced in the darkness on the utmost verge of the horizon. I can now conceive the reason why it obtained its present name, and have some idea of the impatience with which its discoverers looked for its terminus. Our first night at sea was marked by a grand pyro technic display that illuminated the whole heavens, and converted the liquid element through which we ploughed our way into an ocean of fire. It appear ed as if the powers of the air Lad determined to sig nalize our mission; they did so in a peculiarly ap propriate manner. The scene was one of those which could never be forgotten. During the day an ?electric machine was brought upon the upper deck, and it was still there when evening set in. Beside it sat Professor Morse, its inventor, who had been explaining the principle of its construction to the company but a few hours before. Here and there were little groups? some on the bow, some on the wheelhouse, and others scattered about the deck, enjoying themselves In pleasant social intercourse. The sweet music of woman's voice, singing some favorite melody or air from an open, gave a new attraction to the scene. At first the lightning flashed in broad sheets along the hori zon, then rapidly extending towards the zenith, it illnminated the whole heavens. At intervals, huge fiery serpents darted from their place of conceal ment in the dense black clouds that hnng lowering over our heads, then all was darkness above and be neath. This display lasted about two hours, when the rain, which fell tn torrents, drove us reluctantly into the cabin. Here we had an amateur concert, which, in point of vocal talent, I have seldom seen excelled by any public concert in New York. In this way we passed our first night at sea ? a night which will be remembered hereafter among our most pleasant reminiscences. The remainder of onr voyage watt not marked by any incident of particular note, except that on our third night oat we were overtaken by a fog, and while in it were in imminent danger of a collision with Home vessel. Our captain, however, was on the look oat, and after a few reverse strokes of the en gine, we succeeded in passing her in safety. I after wards ascertained that it was near this latitude that the Arctic was lost. We shall not remain more than a few hours in Halifax? just long enough to engage the services of a pilot who is acquainted with the coast of New foundland, when we will start for Port an Basque' where the Sarah Bryant is lying with the cable on board, ready to be towed across the Gulf of St. Law rence. I send you, in the form of a little story, a few facts which I obtained on board in relation to the inven tion of the telegraph, some of which 1 believe have never appeared in print; and with this I must close my fizat letter. TBI STORY OF THE KLKCTRIC TF.LEflR AFH. The name of the ship Sally will always be remem bered as intimately associated with the invention of the electric telegraph. In the year 1832, during the passage of that vessel from Havre to New York, a company of American gentlemen were assembled on her deck, conversing upon various scientific sub jects. Among them was Professor Morse, who was then pursuing the profession of an artist, and who was comparatively unknown, except to a large circle of friends to whom he had endeared himself by his frank, generous nature, and his simple, unaf fected manners. There was also Mr. Reeves, United States Minister to the Court of France, and Dr. Jack son, a distinguished geologist. The conversation happened to turn on the then recent discovery of electricity produced from magnetism, or, more strict ly speaking, the process by which electricity was produced from the magnet. Its importance aroused the attention of men of science in the Old and New Worlds, among whom it was the all absorbing subject of discussion. In the course of the conversation Dr. Jackson stated that he had seen the experiment sue cesafulJy performed, and described the coil of wire round the uiugnct; when one of the company ob served that it must take :? considerable length of time for s current of ele< trkity to pasa through it ? " No," said the Dwtor, in reply, " I have known the electric rnmnt to pass through -"vera! hundred feet of wire in an instant. Don't you," h?' added, "remem ber the* vi>e- meut of Franklin, to exhibit its veloci ty, and whkb n -suited in proving tbmt the rapidity of its (light could not even be calculated by time f~ I'rofess'ir Morse, who waa an cigT listener to thi? part of tlx conversation, remained that he retnem (?ered an eiperiment of the kind, and be immedi K after - .xi,i -t"d that tf elertrci'y wa? so iwpil, tin re ' I'd ' *t*e o: uo Mfcultjr ta dc? '.sir ig * a by which, through It* aid, information might be trantmitted to a great dMance. The remark was received with a sort of general aaoent, but did not turn the conversation from the experiment which Dr. Jackson had been describing, aud which was the subject of general interest. The active mind of our Professor, however, was busy; and that night the idea which he had conceived was worked out into a practical form. His leisure hoars on board the Sally were devoted to the invention of an instrument which was to prove the possibility of transmitting intelligence by means of electricity between distant points The result was the construction of a machine similar to that now used, with the exception that instead of the spring there was originally a simple permanent magnet. It is sufficient to say, here, that he was satisfied with his success ; but this was not all ? it was merely the beginning of his labors ? he had to contend against the scepticism of an unbelieving world, which had persecuted and tortured, even to death, some of the noblest sons of science for the faith that was in them. After his arrival in New York he succeeded in making a perfect model of his machine. He accom plished this in his studio, in the University, where his time was divided between his great work aud the instruction of some pupils in the art of painting. This was in the fall of ls:t6, when the University was in process of completion. Among his pupils were the distinguished historical painter, Dauiel Huntington, and Mr. 1-oomis, another artist of much merit. Both these gentlemen acted as witnesses in the long and obstinately contested suit betweeu Professor Morse and Mr. O'Reilly. ? In 1P37 a public exhibition of the invention was made in the University, the scene of his unremitting Isliors, before a large audience. A considerable number were attracted by mere curiosity? certainly not from their fuith in the practicability of the invention. Little did they or the world imagine that one day, through its magic agency, the moat distant parta of the earth would be brought toge ther, and that the great ocean itself would present no obstacle to the establishment of immediate com munication between the Old and New Worlds. A large number of persons we have said, were present, and witnessed the success of the ex|>eriincut : it was conclusively proved that intelligence could be transmitted as quick as thought through a wire ten miles long. A few months after this Professor Morse went to Washington, and in February of 1H3H exhibited his machine to the President, his Cabinet, and a large assembly of the members of l>oth houses. The same success attended tUs exhi bition. The subject was soon after brought before Congress, and an appropriation asked for to con struct a telegraph line between Washington and Baltimore. Thirty thousand dollars, it was stated, would be sufficient for the purj>ose, and as the amount was so small it was supposed it would be granted at once; but, like many other great mea sures of public utility, it was nearly killed by delay. Large bodies, it is said, move slowly, and never was the axiom more forcibly illustrated than in this case. The Committee on Commerce, to which the subject had been referred, reported promptly and favorably, recommending that an appropriation of thirty thousand dollurs, the required amount, be granted for the construction of the proposed line. Week after week passed without any notice being taken of the report, month succeeded month, and still Congress took no action on it. Professor Morse, however, was not easily discouraged? he worked with untiring energy, in his studio at the University, for the means to support himself in Washington during the sessions of Congress, and in the midst of the greatest difficulties, the false pro mises of politicians, the indifference of pretended filends, and the delays and vexations of tedious le gislation, labored with the most determined perse verance to secure the passage of the bill reported by the committee. Tbe first year passed, the second was near its close, anil still there appeared to l>e no prospect that it would be acted upon. Professor Morse, during the interval between the sessions , went to England, having secured his invention here, and endeavored to obtain a patent from the British government. This application, however, was met and opposed by Wheats-ti ne and Davy, and was defeated in conse quence of their alleging that the invention had already been published, and that, according to Eng lish patent law, it was public property. Failing in KuKlund, he weut to France, where he" succeeded in obtaining a patent, and where his invention was exhibited by the great French astronomer, Arago, before the Academy of Sciences. Hut although ne was tmccessful in securing the patent, when he at tempted to construct a line from Paris to St. (?ei main, the government interposed, and claimed the exclusive right to the u^e of the inven tion, on the ground that it was a govern. Hint monopoly, and, that according to the laws of France, conld not I* possessed by an indi vidual. Thus while there was one law requiring him to carry his invention into practical operation within two years, there was another which prohibi ted him from m-ing it; and both being in conflict, he was compiled to abandon the design of using his patent in that country. He now returned to his native land, and proceeded immediately to Washing ton, where he renewed his endeavors to procure the passage of the bill granting the appropriation of thirty thousand dollars. Towards the close of tbe session of 1844, the House of Representathes took it up and past-ed it by a large majority, and it only remaiued for the action of the Senate. Its progress through this bouse, as might be supposed, was watched with tbe most intense anxiety by Professor Morse. There were only two days tieiorc the close of the session, and it was found on examination of the calendar, no less than one hundred and forty three bills bod precedence of it. Professor Morse had nearly reached tbe bottom of bis purse, his hard earned savings were almost spent, and although he had struggled on with undying hope for many years, it is hardly to l.e wondered at if he felt dis heartened now. On the la?t night of the session he remained till nine o'clock, anil then left without tlie slightest hope that the bill would be passed. He returned to his hotel, counted his mo ney, and found that after paying his expenses to New York he would have seventy-five cents left. That night he went to bed sad, but not without hope for the future, for through all his difficulties and trials that never forsook him. The next morn ing, as he w as going to breakfast, one of tbe waiters iniormed him that a voung lady was in tbe parlor waiting to see him. He went in immediately, and found that the voung lady was Miss Ellsworth, daughter of the Commissioner of Patents, who had been his most steadfast friend while in Washington. " I come," said she, " to congratulate you." " For what?" said Professor Morse. " On the passage of your bill," she replied. "Oh, no ? you must lie mistaken," said he. "I remained in tbe Senate till a late hour last night, and there was no prospect of its being reached. "Am 1 tbe first, then," she exclaimed joyfully , "to tell von ?" " Yes, if it is really so." " Well," she continued, " father remained till the adjournment, and heard it passed, and I asked him if I might not run over and tell you." "Annie," said the Professor, his emotion almost choking his utterance, "Annie, the first message that ia sent from Washington to Baltimore shall be cent from vou." " Well,' she replied, " I will keep you to your word." While tbe line was in procewi of completion Pro fessor Morse was in New York, and upon receiving intelligence that it was in working order he wrote to t h<?e in charge, telling them not to transmit any messages over it till his arrival. He then net out immediately for Washington, and on reaching that city gent a note to Miss fill worth informing her that he was now ready to fulfil bis promise, and asked her what message he should send. To this be received tbe following reply, " What bath < >od wrought 1"? words that ought to be written In characters of living light. The message was twice repeated, and e* h time witb the greatest su< I ccss. As soon as the result of the experiment was made known, CJovernor Seymour, of Connecticut, who la at pr?-*ent U, S, Minister to St. Petersburg, called upon Professor Morse and claimed the first message for his State, on tbe grnmd that Miss Ells worth ws" a native of Hartford. We need scarcely add that bis claim was adm'tted, and, now engraved in letters of gold, it Is displayed conspicuously in tbe archives of the Historical Society of Connecticut. Numerous claimants have arisen since then to contest the right of Profenaor Morse to the inven tion of the electric telegraph; but the whole scien tific world now recognizes our distinguished <XNB tryman as tbe first to prove tlie practicability of transmitting intelligence between distant |s>ints through the agency of the electric current. The English have at last, after a long and obstinate M niggle, given in, and admitted the justice <?f his i laims.

If, then, it should seem impossible to carry such a bill in the face of such opposition, why would it not be better for the anti-Nebraska members to plant themselves at once on the ground of a principle instead of a Coin Promise ? ? the principle of ''No slavery within 'nited States territory," instead of no slavery in a portion of I nited State* territory f The ground the free State* stood on in 1848 was the policy ef the ordinance of 1787, interdicting slavery in all federal territory. Betrayed, nud driven from that position, it was *ome compensation in their defeat to remember that tbe Missouri compromise, itself a depar tuie from the policy of the ordinance, still secured the larger and more valuable part of the territory of the L'nion to freedom. But in 1 KM, again tietrayed, they were robbed of this heritage, the policy of slavery -prohi bition anywhere was broken down and the slave power now demands all. Whither j-hall they go V Is there a lower deep to which they can he driven ? They have turned upon the aggressor, determined upon a final re sistance I What now is their true course? " Fifty -tour Forty, or Fight!" No more compromise? no halfway measure ? no issue upon exceptions ! Let them demand the revival of the potlcy of the ordinance of 1787 ? " No Hlavery in federal territory. This i* a principle, sound, constitutional, comprehensive, sanctioned liy our fa thers ? a principle, adherence to which gave us ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, with their mil lion* of free laborer*, and the repudiation of which ha* given ii* Texa*. nullification, propagandist!!, with a horde of slavery conspirator*, who are laboring to use the L'nion as the chief agency in effecting their devilish pur pose*. l.?t the aoti-Nebra*ka members of the next Congress meet the crlsi*, then, like men. Thev can just as easily carry a bill prohibiting slavery in all federal territory a* one excluding it from above W degrees :w> minute*. The slave power will no more consent to one measure than to the other. I'lanting themnelres upon a princi ple, they can put forth their full energies ? they will nut convict themselves by Implication to any compromise ? thev will show the South that they have confidence in the justice of their cause ? they will define the true plat form of action for the party of the people, which is now rallying for the campaign of next year. There will be no plotting to induce Northern members to lower their demands. hnow Nothlngism will prove n disturbing element. Ambitious aspirants for the Speak er'* eliair may lie willing to barter piinciple for votes. There arc Northern eandiilate* who may seek to wriggle themselves into that place through new anil tortuous schemes of compromise. 1 et aiitl-N'ehriiska members be ware lest they invest with power a man who will assigu to slavery the control of the important committees After all, it is not improbable that tlie real battle of freed) in may be fought on the question of admitting new States. Oregon was ready last year. Next winter, a bill for tier admission as a State will la- brought forward, and possibly Minnesota may ask recognition. The slave power will i eslst both measures it- cherished policy has licen, the admission of free and al.ive States in pair>, with a view to preserve "the equilibrium" between the two nection*. It will adhere to it with desperate tenacity : it mill keep Oregon Mailing, with the hope of consum mating the perlldly of the repeal of the Missouri compro mise. by yoking Kansas with Oregon, forcing the one to drag into the I nion the other as a slave State. This abominable plot is what gives so much practical signifi cance to the retolve ot the North. ' 'No more ?.lave States." The North and West must take this grond. or there is no hope for Kansas. If their representatives are true, the icl.eme of the slavery parly will be bullied, and the ques tion of the admission of Oreeoi^as well as alt the other HggiavatiiiK issue* forced li^fiiThe coantrv bv the slave power, will lie thrown into the ('residential canvass, 'then let the non-slaveholders of the Colon lie true to themselves, and instal an anti-slavery administration, and all else that I* needful will follow in order.

Oregon would lie admitted, free and inde|>erid< nt. Kansas would lie remanded to its territo rial condition, to lie organized by its aetual settlers into a free State. And one by one wiuld the aggression* of slnvery l>e remedied, until the principle of no slavery wltblli the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal govern ment, should be fully carried out and practically estab llshed beyond cavil or disturliance.

Wolf Kivkr, Kanea.s Ter., Aug. 4, 1*55, Logan Pontanelle, chief of the Omaha*, has just been slain and scalped at Ixtnp Pork, by n Isuid of Sioux.

Just then, however, as he was again reloading, his horse stum bled and fell, and the band ru-hed upon him btftlM he had well recovered from the shock. He was shot with bulletM and arrowH, and gashed with toma hawks, and pierced with lances; notwithstanding all which, he arose amidnt his foes, and with his clnbbed ritle aud hunting knite, he piled uroiind him five prostrate bodies, and fell with hia back upon their corpses and expired, still fighting. He was scalped, and hundreds of warriors held a great war-dancc over him. Thus Logan Fontanelle departed, aud hiH noble spirit was followed to spirit-land by the sighs and lamentations of bis nation and the sympathies aud aspirations of the brave of every laud. The Sioux, a short time since, held a great na tional feast at the Black Hills, when their bible was opened, and a somewhat romanticlnddcnt occurred, which 1 will give you in my next. Superior Court?

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. nOHET MARKET. Fkidav, August 17 ? (1 ]\ M. There was a slight reaction in the stock market thin morning. In amount of business there wan not much change, but priced were not ho (Irmly maintain ed. A decline wan realized in almost every in Htance. At the first l>oiird Cumberland Coal fell off i per ccnt; New York Central Railroad, 4; Krie Railroad, Harlem, Heading,!; Cleveland and Pittsburg, \\ Cleveland and Toledo, ; Chicago and Hock Inland, New York Central Honds odvunc ? d 4 per cent; New York Central 7's, 4; Nicaragua Transit, J. There were no Kales of Illinois Central Honds, of either class, at the Unit board, and there wan not much business in any other description. Cumberland wax no Id in large Iota to-day, but cloned at prices lower than at the opening. At the necond board Heading advanced i percent; New York Central bonds, 4: New York Central Railroad, J. Heading wan quite active, and cloned fiim. There were large seller* of Cumberland on time, for a decline. The greatent advance ha* been in stocks which pay good dividend.n, and the abun dance of money will doubtle.ns sustain most of them, if nothing trannpiren in their internal management calculated to weaken public confidence. Money in plenty enough for all sound legitimate transactions but it 1s warre enough for anything of a npeculative character. New York Central and Heading are the steadiest ntockn on the list, and probably will con tinue SO. The steamship Henry Wells left thia port .venter day for Cartbagena, New 'Granada, to enter upon the navigation of the canal and Magdalena river. She ia the flint of five iron nteamnhipn which will be despatched to that country, and we have no doubt but that in the course of a year or ho the whole fleet will I* in active and successful operation. The capital of the company in $2,(><M),0<X>, and it baa ample means for the accomplishment of the vant enter prise in view. The steamship Henry Well* la under the command of a gentleman who ban been actively engaged during the pant three years in navigating the Magdalena river, and ia therefore thornghly ac quainted with the duties of hin position. There im no doubt but that the company will literally coin money, merely by tho trade of the canal, whi'h it has a complete monopoly of for sixty yarn. At a meeting of the Hoard of Directors of the ("treat Western Insurance Company, held on Thurs day, Aug. IB, the following gentlemen were unani mously elected : Richard l-athern, President; John A. Parker, Vice President; James F, Cox, Hecond Vice Pnwident; Douglas Robinnon, Secretary: Jabez Williamn, Marine Inspector; and Wm. M. Kvart*, Esq., as Counsel.
