The enterprise of constructing s continuous Use of telegraph to connect Europe with the United States across the whole of Asia, and tba northwest coast of Iha Pacific, is fairly under way, and we think the lime is not far distant when this important work will be ac complished, and messages can be tent round the world. It is one of the many enterprises that characterizes this remarkable age, and . future generations will read with wonder aud astonishment, on the pages of history, the great improvements in the conditions of hu man life the people of the last half of the nineteenth century have made. God lias ers atod for us a beautiful world, and given us all the elements necessary for a happy life, and if we make a proper and wise uso of these ele ments, we shall duly appreciate]and enjoy our brief existence on earth, and be better pre pared to step out from this temporary dress chamber and enter our eternal home. It is said by some philosophers that there is neith er time nor space In the other world, and if that be true, the telegraph that encircles this globe and eoables us, unobstructed by these obstacles, to Interchange thoughts and sent! mentA wllPtliPr nf hniniAaa ab nloassiM wIwaa us some striking illustrations of that undis covered country from whose bourne no trav eler returns. But philosophy and metaphysics aside, we turn to the practical uses of this telegraphic enterprise, and to the facta ao far as they have been developed. It is an over land route as nearly as it physically can bo. ▲ memorial has been presented to the Com mittee of Commerce of the United States Sen ate by Perry McD Collins, a citizen of Cali fornia, in which he says he has obtained from the Imperial Government of Russia the privi lege to construct a line of telegraph from the mouth of the Amoor river, In Asiatic Russia, to the British possessions. The British Gov ernment baTe also granted the privilege of running the line across the intervening terri tory or British Columbia. The Russian Gov ernment stipulate, on certain conditions, to construct a continuous line, connecting the European system with the Pacific Ocean, about 8600 miles east of London, and on the route of a line which may be projected to Pe kin and the great commercial cities of China. The whole country, except a portion of the route in British Columbia, over which this proposed line must pass, is sparcely inhabi ted, and presents no local inducements for the construction of a telegraph. But the great inducement still remains of the union of Asi atic and European lines with the Americau system, which has already reached the Pacific and up towards the British possessions. The distance from our northern frontier, adjoining British Columbia, to the mouth of the Amoor rivgy may be reckoned in round numbers 6000 miles. The Russian Govern ment authorized Ur. Collius, previous to granting the right of way, to survey a route over all that portion of the Russian dominions east of the Amoor as far as British Columbia. Whaling fleets in considerable force resart to the seas, bays and sounds not only of the Pa cific, but of the Arctic. In one year more than seventy vessels have passed through Behring’s Straits, and still a larger number have visited the waters adjacent aud the Ochotsz Sea. The commerce of Japan and the Amoor region is increasing every year, j hence it is important that we should have a I better knowledge of those interesting regions. u»uuii we siiouiu reap many advantages Irom a telegraphic commu nication which shall not only unite Europe te America, but add the whole of Asia, includ ing Japan, China and India. Such a telegraph would bring us into immediate communica tion with that interesting portion of the globe. Mr. Collins has been, since 1866, commer cial agent for our Government for the A moor river, and a most enlightened, assiduous and faithful representative he has been. Mr. Seward, Secretary of State, has backed this petition of Mr. Collins with a lervor and • logic peculiarly his own. Mr. Seward’s pen never fails to exhaust a subject when he takes hold of it in earnest. He has thrown a flood of light upon the question, and produced all the argument* in it* favor which the most fer tile brain can conjure up. He shows in a very clear light that this enterprise isVeasible and useful, aud has a strong claim upon our Gov ernment for the patronage Mr. Collins In his memorial solicits. The Secretary says the most prominent physical difficulty is the ex tent of territory to be traversed, but this great distance does not constitute an insur mountable, nor even a se-ious difficulty. It can be overcome, and the objective point to be gained warrants the undertaking and in sures its Anal success. The starting point must be chosen in either Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Montano, Idaho, Oregon or Washington. Thence the distauce to be traversed through British America to liussian America is about 600 Wiles; the distance through liussian Ameri- i ca to Cape Prince of Wales is about 1600 miles. Tlie length of submarine cable across Behring’s Straits would be forty miles, and the distance from East Cape, by inland pas sage around the sea Ochotez, and through the settlements of Ocholtz, Ayan and Shaunter’s Bay^well known stations of the whale fishery, to the mouth of the Amoor river would be about 2500 miles. The entire length of the line would be a little more than 0000 miles. Operative submarine telegraph wires have been laid of the lengths, respectively, of 300 and 600 miles, from Dover to Heligoland, and from Malta to Tripoli; therefore water fur nishes no obstacles to this line. The Emperor of Bussia has bound himself to extend the main eastern and western line j froxi Irkoutsk to the mouth of the Amoor, and what this man promises will be per formed, whether it be the emancipation of ! forty millions of serfs or constructing a tele graphic line over an immense extent of terri- i 'tory. He is good for all his promises. The extension of this line Is now rapidly advanc ing. And this is not all, and but a small por' lion of this Emperor’s plans and enterprises. His designs embrace nothing less than the following stupendous works, says Mr. Seward. “A telegraph wire, with the necessary sub marine cables, from the mouth of the Amoor river, acorss the Straits of Tartary, ovei the Island of Sakhalin, across the Straits of La Perouse, over the lilaud of Jeno, through Uakodadi, and across the Straits of Saugar to Yedo. the capital of Japan.” And then he hat other lines iu contemplation, stretching over vast territories to terminate at the Port of Viadi Vostok, on the coast of Tartary, op posite to that part part of Uakodadi on the eastern coast of the Japanese sea, and at the ports of Nankin, Shanghae, Amoy and Can ton, on the Pacific coast, opposite to Califor nia. Russia has already brought all her chief inland markets and mines, as well as her prin cipal ports on the coasts of the Pacific Ocean into telegraphic communication with her cap 1U1. Mr. Seward says that “such efforts belong to the class of human labors which are pro j nounced to b« doubly blessed, because they bless equally those who are subjects and those who are the performers of them.” These tel egraph lines will be instrumental in renewing and restoring the long-languishing civiliza tion of the regions where our race first im pressed Its dominion upon the globe, appoint ed lor its residence. And the time will come when the cost of sending words over wires will be very much cheaper than it is now.— The inventors must now be rewarded, but the old forms will one day be thrown aside and new systems invented which will be much cheaper than the present ones, and equally as good, If not better as well as cheaper, so that the magnetic wire will become, for the chief purposes of social, commercial and political ! communication as practical as, by reason of ' its adaptation,It Is effective. In other words, t this wire will take the place of letter-writing much more extensively than it does now.— I Friends, social, commercial,political, will talk with each other through this space-annihilat ing and time-destroying instrument all ovtr the world. Mr. Seward remarks: I do not know any one object lying within the scope of our foreign relatious more direct 1 ly important than the preservation of peace and friendship with those two great and eu lightened powers. Nor can I conceive of any . one measure of national policy that would I more effectively tend to secure that great ob ject than the construction of tbe proposed iu ter-coulinental telegraph. He hopes to see the magnetic wire stretch ed across on the bed of the Atlantic Ocean from Cape Clear to Cape Race, notwithstand ing past difficulties. The two Hoes in hit opinion would Dalurally aid and strengthen each other. Should they come In competition the world would be benefitted. Besides, the great interests of human society will, ere long, require more than one and even more than two trans-oceanlc,world-encircling telegraphs. If we ever have any friends on the opposite side of our globe, we hope the time will come when we can talk with them throng the tnag • netic wire, snd interchange sent meots 01 friendship and love without wait, rig for the slow car, or the still slower 'msh Phi . losopbers have said that, hap; ss consists ! in the “hurry of the feelings;” t • u wt say, ! let these trans-oceauic and won 1 encircling I I... _ _L.1I _ L_ - 1 breathing place on this planet. [Frutn the Washington Chronicle, June 10th.] The Finances. Every few weeks some parties who would seem to know more shout the affairs of tin I Treasury thau those most familiar with its management, start a story about the enor mous indebtedness of the Government. At one time it U twenty-five hundred millions,al , another four thousand, then it gets down to three. The public is periodically startled bj the announcement that the war coals us from i two to three millions s day, and the nation is on the verge of hnukrnptey. The latest stale menl we have seen, represents our expendi tures as four millions dally, while all the vari ous appropriations, which are said to be al most exhausted, foot up to two thousand seven hundred millions. Now, there is no need for those periodic and incessaut disturbances of tbu public mind.— The Treasury is not slow in communicating the facta aud dgures respecting the finances ; and despite all the clamor about impending bankruptcy, the interest-paying portion of the public debt is less than one thousand three hundred millions. The entire amount of the public indebted ness Is $1,734,230,403.31. Of this sum $402, 603,860.47 is in the shape of legal tender and fractional currency, which leaves but $1,271, 507,503.84 on which interest U payable. By the new loan bill just iutroduced into the House, it is proposed to effect another six per cent. loan, $400,000,000 in amount. This, we have but little doubt, will be teadlly taken, and as the proceeds from the tax bill are ex pected to reach upwards of a million a day, the Government will have ample lands for a year, when it it considered that a temporary ! loan of $150,000,000 is authorized to meet any sudden emergency. So thst the public debt even if the war continues through this cam paign, is not likely to overrun $2,000,000,000 though there are claims for damages, <*c., j which may swell it beyond that ilgure. The interest on this sum is $120,000,000. The or- 1 dinary expenses of the Government can be defrayed by the tariff. What then becomes of the forebodings and the lamentations of i those who are eternally dinning in the ears of ; this wealthy and growing population, with its unbounded resources and magnificent teiri- 1 tory, the clamorous threatening of national bankruptcy? Away with such faint-hearted patriotism, such inexcusable ignorance or wanton misrepresentation; we can pty every ! dollar we expend, both principal and l iteresf, 1 and he is no true friend of his country who cavils at our ability, or questions our disposi tion so to do. Ratification Meeting.—A Urge and en thusiastic meeting was held in Bangor on Sat urday evening last, to ratify the nomination of Lincolu and Johnson. The meeting was addressed by Gen. S. F. Ilersey, Hon. Hanni bal Hamlin, Prof. Harris. T. H. Garnsey, Esq., and Hon. John A. Peters. The Whig says the meeting was most enthusiastic through out, and the speeches were Interrupted fre quently by applause.

Negro SufiV&ge—Now and Then Of late the statesmen (!) of the copperhead persuasion seem grratly disturbed lest the elective franchise should be degraded by being exercised by free men of color; by native American Africans as well as by naturalized Europeans. They talk of negro suffrage and negro equality as they would of poligamy and the worship of idols; as though they were contrary to all past usage and had no historic precedent. Now the facts show that in former years this feeling against the exercise of the rights of citizenship by free negroes found no place in the Democratic household. * In fact it comes not of true Democracy, but of that bare illegitimate spawn of Aristocracy, better known as proslavery copperheadism. It is not many years since free negroes were allowed to vote in North Carolina and Mary land as they now do in Ne v England and New York. John Bell, of Bell-Everelt notoriety did not disguise the fact that on more tbau one occasion he was indebted for bis election to congress to the negro vote of his district, the uegro voters holding therein the balance of power. This statement we make on the authority of Henry Winter Davis, of Balti more, who said in his speech in this city last seasou that he had heard Mr. Bell make a sim ilar statement The Nashville Times states some facts rela ting to negro suffrage in Tennessee which we commend to the copperhead fraternity. Up to the year 1835 free negroes voted in that Butte. A motion in the first constitu tional convention, to confine the right of suf frage to “free white men" was voted down. The Times says: The politicians courted the free negro vote. | Candidates lor Congress electioneered with ne gro voters as laboriously and zealously as they did in bar-rooms and doggeries with white vo ters. The aged and venerable Major Wm. B. Lewis, of this city, Gen. Jackson's confidential Iriend, and auditor in the l’aeasury Depart ment during his administration, a man ol high social position, and a slaveholder, informed us recently that the leaders of the various politi cal parties manifested quite as tnhch solicitude to secure the voles of free negroes as they did Lhn&tt of wliitn man Tim »a<vr» - elected Hon. John Bell to the national House of Representatives, and no doubt the great chautpiou ol "Southern Right"aud the “Union, Constitution and enforcement of the laws," treated many a sable Iriend to a glaas of pure “old Robertson." Andrew Jackson received thousands of free negro voles, for they were very friendly to the brave soldier on account ot the high compli ment he paid to his colored soldiers at Mobile lor their bravery, in a public order, in which he said: “I expected much of you. 1 knew how well you loved your native country. You have doue more than I expected. Iu addition to the qualities I before knew you to possess, I found among you a noble enthusiasm,which lead* to the performance of great things." The negro is a grateful being, aud be never de serted Old Hickory. Hon. Felix Grundy, U. States Senator, and a member of the Cabinet, and Hon. Ephraim H. Foster, U.nlted States Seualor, and one of the leadiug politicians of the Slate for many years, were both great fa- j voriles at different periods with the free negro voters. Foster at oue time was said to have unbounded influence with the negroes, and to carry their votea in his pocket—Tha- gallant old aoldier aud upright man, Gen. Win. 11. Car- , roll was also very popular with the free negroea and courted their votea very successfully in his different canvasses. At oue hotly contes ted election, one of bis friends led a procession of sixty negroes to the polls, who esat a solid vote for Gen. Carroll. Not the slightest op position was made to the polling of tbit vote, and no one ever dared to molest negroes at the poll*. A physician in Southern Kentucky, a genllemau of unimpeachable veracity, told us several years sgo, that he had teeq Hon. face Johnson, Postmaster General under Van Pares, in his early political races lead ' two negro voters to the polls, on election day, , one on each arm. The instances which we have enumerated are not exceptional cases ; they were of usual occurrence for more than thirty years, and doubtless our older citizen* can recall multitudes of like cases. The Times gives the names of a number of negroes at Nashville who were formerly voter*, ardent supporters of Jackson, and straight out State-Rights Democrat*. Free negroes were also required to do military duty the same aa whites, and trained in the same company with white men. No class ol persona, not excepting the moat radical of the abolitionists, have ever been more untiring In their devotions or ardent in their wooing to secure the favorable opinions of our "sable brothers", than have been the Demociatic politicians, especially when by to doing place and power seemed more likely to uc btcuicu. iu Tiew 01 mis wnoie mailer, ana of the above facta exhumed from Teouessee history, the Kennebec Journal well says:— “ K there is anything relating to free black men disagreeable to Democratic olfactories, it was not sut&cieut to repel the Democratic pol itician in search of votes. It is also important to observe that no negro was, during that pe riod, elected Governor of the State, or sent to either House of Congress, though we are warn ed by the Copperhead leaders that such are the necessary results of colored suffrage. Nor is it recorded that the tendency to miscegeua tion was any more marked in the State of Tennessee during the thirty years and more while colored citizens Were allowed to vote, than since that right was taken from them.” “Over the River.” The above is the beautiful poetic title of a modest little volume of 272 pages, from the , press of Thompkins * Co., Boston, from the pen of Rev. Thomas B. Thayer. The full title Is as follows: “Over the Kiver, or Pleasant Walks into the Valley of Shadows and Be yond ; a Book ol Consolation for the Sick, the Dying and the Bereaved.” We envy not the state of mind of that indi vidual who can peruse this little volume and not feel inspired with better impulses; not feel that his own spiritual growth is promoted by the exercise. Mr. Thayer is a sweet writ- , er, because he is actuated by a kind and geni al spirit. He writes not for controversy, as a sectarian, but for the spiritual camlortand im- 1 provemenl of others, as a sincere, humble Christian. And few men now iu the exercise ofhealth and with life’s blessings falling thick- | ly around them, have had more intimate ex perience with the “Valley of Shadows” than Mr. T. For long, weary, painful months, he itood face to face wlih death, insomuch that his present condition seems almost as much the work of miracle as was the leaping of the lame man in the gospel; and he knows the I>ower of a truthful, childlike lailh in an Al mighty Father to support the sinking soul iu tuch a conflict. The following are a few of the topics discuss ed iu this volume: The Revelations of Sick less; Good iu Evil; The Blessings ol aCheer Piety; Is thy House in Order? The Ear y Teut-the Heavenly House; Falling Asleep • I he Death of the body the Life ol the Spir t; The World beyond the Kiver; Einploy nents of the Future Life: the ..r Heaven; the Lesions of Sorrow; the Death if Children, dtc.

Dr. Wheeler, mail agent, who has been at Fraukfoit, Ky during the siege, lelt there at 3.30 this morning, and has arrived here lie reports that the tight commenced at 0 o clock Friday alleruoon, and lasted till dark and at intervals during the night. The enemy approached from Georgetown in two forces aggregating 1200 men, 700enteredlold and 500 New Frankfort. They had no artillery. A ■mall fjur-pounder had been placed lelow the fort to protect our rillo pits, which was cap tured, but subsequently recaptured. On Sat urday tiring continued from 7 o'clock in the morning until 3 o’clock in the afternoon, with short intervals of interruption. The rebels made two demands during the day for the sur render of the fort. Both were refused by Col. Monroe, of the 22d Kentucky. The reb els abandoned the attack at 4 o’clock Satur day afternoon, and by 7 o'clock were moving eastward. The Federal loss was six wound ed, one severely. The rebel loss is unknown. The fort was garrisoned by 150 men, only twelve of whom were soldiers. No injury was done to Frankfort, except the burning ol the barracks on the edge of the city on Fri day, which was erroneously reported to be the bridgo three miles northward. Capt. Dickson, of Gen.
