But, before speaking of tbla In datail, let me 1 begin at tbe beginning, wblcb, correctly speaking, goes ' r back to the 2d Inst , tbe dste of my last lottor. , | In that communication I stated that it bad been decided, t i after all, we were to take tbe submarine cable on board; J but It was not known where tho vessel would be fitted up, : as Ibo British Admiralty bad to select oue of tbelr nume- ' ous Davy yards for tbe purpose. There waa a delay, there ' I fore, of some days, till tbe date of our departure, which ' r took place on tbe Mb Inst , when we sailed for tbe great J , naval depot of Portsmouth. We were three weeks alto- j 1 getber at Oravesend, having arrived oil that port on tbo : i 14th ef May, and during tbat time our thip was crowded i daily with visiters. Our officers were beset with invita- ! < tlans from official and private persons, and so numerous ! did they become at last, that, finding it Impossible to keep b ran of them, one of their number was appointed to keep a rcgulur dally bulletin posted In the ward room for , the information of the whole mesa.

On * this occasion he was the pri 'ate guest of the Queen, with ' whom be remalnec some two days, at ber residence on a the Isle of Wight. The reel thai It was only a visit to the head of the nation, and not to the nation itself, appears to '* have given considerable umbrage to some of tbe newtpa- , r pert here, who have construed tbe wbole affair Into an iaslnuation against the hospitality of tbe British people. and an apprehension as to bis personal safety among teem. ( Whatever may be the cause, it is certain that he confined * bit visit eichiftvely to the Queen, and that It was of very short duration. Short, however, aa it was, he took E advantage of it to write a communication to Captain Hudw um and the otlicers oT Uie Niagara, returning nis thanks for the hospitality and attention which bad been sr.own to '< the two offlcwrs or the Russian navy who were granted J permission by oar government to he prenent on board our * vessel during tbe expedition After appropriately ackoow II ledgtng ihe courtesies and klndnese ef tbe captain and of, n cere, he concludes by staling that he regards tbsm as an evi denco of the fiw-1 that the reeling of frieodihlp wr.ich lias III" ways existed between the two countries? l.uuia and the 3 I oiled States?Is participated by the naval sen Ides of both dhkid.1. vepuuu .-T.nw?r/. uu i " uranuii rjjwmu, iuc gentlemen referred to id Uie mm ol the Archduke, ere at preeent with him on the UouUoent, anl will Dot to the veancl probably before the goes to ;.lver|e<ol, where the 1 will receive Hie cable. lYoieaeor Morse b*? been at Paris during the past two week*, and .? ex i pected every day.

It was feared tbat by placing to dgo a portion of It in the forepart of the vessel tbo real weight would cause an undue depression of Uie bow, J much so as to interfere with tho working of tbe ship; ul as may bo observed It will not be far euough from tbo nitre of gravity to place her on an uneven keel i addition to this tbe weigot can be so equally distributed y storing tbe provision*, coals and storage 3f the vessel in iher parts as toavold#"h depression of the boa.

Those who have always been accustomed to be comforts of a borne can hardly realize tbe Inoonve icncc and annoyance which will be cansed by tbe Intro uclion of sucb a customer Into tbe wardroom, but every fleer and every sailor Is willing to sacrifice his own a*e In order To carry out .bis undertaking successfully, tnsgtno Iko cable Hying oat from this coil at tbo rsto of breo or four miles nn hour wh.le they aro at dinner, and lithtn some three or four yards of them, pausing up the latrh and away out over the stern, to be submerged st be bottom of tbe ocean at a dep'h of from two miles to wo and a half. The cable wbicb Is to be Placed nn board tbe Agatnemion will be laid in one coll instead of five, and is to be put n Vlie forepart of the ship. It Is perhaps hazarding too nucli to say In advance of the experiment wbicb plan wilt irove the beat, but I bellcvo tbe general opinion is In fa ror of ours, wbicb bos been adopted from necessity, on sc :ount of tbe peculiar construct'on of tbe Niagara To nakc room lor a portion of our half of the cable, some of be coals will bo stowed in another part or tbe kiih, md tbe water tanks will be secareU on the epar leek. In fact, the introduction of the cable will irodnce a complete revolution in tho order of hingi on the Niagara; some of tbe officers will be im?d out of their stateroom*, several of which will be aken down The Captain's cabin will be invaded, and ibout two ftfths of tho crew will be obliged to abandon heir hammocks for beds on tbe deck, or wherever el'o hey may bo fortunate enough to find a place to stretch heimelves. Laying the cable across the Gull of St. Iaw ence was mere chill's play to lh.s work, not only in the engtb or time required, but in the magnitude of tho un lertaklng, and tbe arduous and onerous duties connected sltb it.
