Liverpool, March 14. The American Chamber of Commerce in this city gave a grand banquet to-uight in honor ol the heroes ol the Atlantic Cable, at which live gold medals were presented to Cyrus W.Field, Capt.

William liathborne presided. The usual loyal toasts were given and the health of the Bresident of the United States drank. Mr. Adams, in reply to a highly com plimentary toast, disclaimed all personal credit tor the maintenance of peace between England and America, saying that his course had been dictated by the American Government.

He said the existing cables were perfect in con st ruction, and could do twelve times the amount of work which was now offered. He therefore * hoped that the tariff on messages would soon be reduced, so that both lines might be kept constantly in operation. He was in favor of allowing the transmission of political intelli gence to the press on both sides of the oaeau at a rate which would enable them to publish full news of the world every day. He promis ed that the working facilities of the cable would be extended and improved in America, and cdoquently expatiated on the future benefits to be derived when these improvements had been completed. He concluded by hoping that the Atlantic Cable would be the means of cement ing the friendship of the two nations, that words of enmity might never pass between mother and child, and that their only rivally would be in extending the blessings of liberty in cither hemisphere. Mr. Field’s speech was received writh the most »-r.thiMiiisf iu nimVniso Capt.
