    The Atlantic Telegraph Cable.

    The fleet with the duty of laying the Atlantic Telegraph Cable between Europe and America, are now engaged in that great enterprise. It is supposed that they arrived in mid-ocean, about the 20th or 25th of June, and that, if successful, we shall hear from the Niagara, between the 30th inst., and the 4th of July. – The N. Y. Tribune, the N. Y. Times, and others of our Eastern exchanges, seem to anticipate another failure, and give strong reasons for this opinion. The chances, it must be admitted, are greatly against success; but success, under such adverse circumstances, would be all the more gratifying. We will, at least, hope for the best, and cling to the belief that the enterprise will be accomplished – if not on the present trial, at some future one. A few days will tell the story.
