THE ATLANTIC TELEGRAPH COMPANY. The several Boards of the companies interested ir the Atlantic Telegraph Cable held meetings on Monday to consider] their position under the temporary dis- appointment whith has occurred. Of course, at so short a notice, no specific course has been definitely settled. A spirit of the utmost confidence in the realisation of a great success during the spring of next year prevailed in every quarter. The necessary overhauling of the Great Eastern's boilers, the con- struction of new hauling-in gear, the manufacture of new rope, and other work, would, it is found, occupy too much time to allow of another expedition being sent to sea this year with a certainty of success, hub not the slightest doubt exists as to finding with the greatest precision the position of the broken end by solar observation, or raising and repairing it with droper apparatus in May or June next. The several companies are animated by the single principle of determination to perfect the telegraphic connection between Europe and America, and are act- ing in perfect harmony. Immediate and energetic action will be taken not only to oomplete during next spring the laying of the present cable, which has proved to be by recent experience perfectly practi- cable, but to submerge another by its side, it being the unanimous opinion of the directors of the Con- struction Company and those of the Atlantic Tele- graph Company that economy and permanent efficiency will be most securely attained by preparing immedi- ately to lay a second cable simultaneously with the completion of the first.
