Correspondence of the Savannah Herald.
Nsw York, Aug. 9 p. m.
The sensation to-day is the announcement
that the Atlantic Cable had ceased working,
after being laid 700 miles. I give you the’
latest despatch from Queenstown, July 30.
On Saturday, July 29, when seven hun
dred miles had been paid out from the Great
Eastern, the insulation was lost. The cause
.'of the break was unknown.
The following shows the progte s made:
Wednesday, July 26.—The
adviOTs received to-day are of the most satis
factory nature, and the ‘ kink’ in the cable
on board the great Eastern was discovered
before that portion was payed out. So far as
the ‘ payiug out’ apparatus is concerned,
everything has worked well on board the big
ship, and the latest telegrams to Vnlentia
from Mr. Glass, who is o» board the Great
Eastern, state tbst at 9:60 this morning they
were one hundred and fifty-six miles lfom
land; but at 6:60 there had gone over the
* rollers' at the stem one hundred and fifty

Eastern has only about seven hundred miles
of spare,cable on board, if the general dip is
eaual to that since the vessel left V alentla, it
i? just possible that by the time, she sights
Hope Harbor there may be a ‘length or
two’ wanted. The Great Eastern picked up
* ,’en miles to the fault in the cable, which
was caused by a piece of wire being driven
quite accidentally into the core by the pay
ing out machinery. Captain Gilpin reports
that the piekingup gave great satisfaction to
all on board the Great Eastern. The fault
was localized most accurately by Mr. Saun
ders (electrician). Captain Gilpin also re
ports that the process of paying out was be-
U T’^ußSDAv,July27.—Three hundred miles
Were paid out at 6.50 a. m. to-day, and that
three hundred miles were run at 9.50 a. m.
All is going well. The signals are perfect.
As the steamer becomes gradually lighter,
owing to her consumption of coal and the
paying out of the cable, she is aide to use
her. paddles with more effect, for the screw
is useless, owing to the fact that the cable
has to be paid out over the stem. The calm
ness of the sea was yesterday morning dis
turbed by several squalls, which made a
nasty tumbling sea, some slight di
minution in tlie speed at which (he cable was
paid out. Fortunately, the steering of the
Great Eastern becomes/ easier as she gets
lighter amidships, and she is now much more
managable in bad weather than when she
started from the Nore. At 9.50 a. m. she
■was three hundred miles from the place
where the shore end was spliced to the main
cable and as one of the chief features in
laying the cable this time is the curtailment
of space, it is feared that, in spite of all an
ticipations to the contrary there will be a
considerable length of cable rebuffed when
the Great Eastern reaches Hope Harbor, her
destination on the other side of the Atlantic.
Although the Great Eastern was three hun
dred miles out at sea at 9.60 a. m. yesterday,
she had paid out three hundred miles of the
cable at 5.60 a. m. The insulation through
out was perfect, and it is hoped that in a few
days the cable will be run out with a very
much emaller allowance of ‘slack.’”
“ Fridat, July 28.—Up to 4.5 Qp. m. five
hundred and fifty nautical miles of cable had
been paid out; signals were perfect, and all
“Saturday, July 29th.—Seven hundred
miles of cable paid out (one hundred and
fifty this day), when insulation was lost.
Cause unknown. Further particulars not re
Many believe the defect is merely a tempo
rary one, which will be remedied by under
running and repairing, for which every ap
pliance is provided on board the great ship.
Others think that the cable is done for, and
so express themselves. A few days, perhaps
hours, will determine the question, however.
There are now at this port about ten thou
sand bales of rebel cotton, which will be sold

The sales were stopped recently, and for the

* There is official information that thirty to
fifty thousand bales of cotton, in addition to
the amount now here, may be expected to
arrive at this port, for sale for tbe benefit of
the government. This cotton was hejd by
the rebel authorities, and nobody has any
claim upon it.

Riot at Greenwich, Conn.
Marriage of a Colored Man with
a White Woman.
Attempt to Tar and Feather
A Returned Yolunteer Shot Dead.
The little town of Greenwich, Conn., lias
been thrown into a perfect fever .of excite
ment in consequence of an affray between a
party of whites and a colored man named
Henry Davenport, in which a recently dis
charged soldier was instantly killed.
The circumstances, we are informed, are
as follows: Two years-ago Henry Davenport,
a man well known and esteemed by bis
neighbors for bis marked probity of charac
ter, wooed and won the affections of a white
damsel, and in due time the twain were made
one flesh. It roused the ire of some of the
indignant villagers tbat a white woman
should so far forget her honor and her race
as to ally herself with one of the hated sons
of Ham, and soon after the marriage, fright
ened by their threats, he removed to New
York. A few weeks ago, thinking tbat the
affair had blown over, they returned to their
home. When this became known, the vil
lagers prepared to carry their old threats into
Accordingly on Saturday night, a motley
crowd proceeded to visit his, dwelling with
the intention of administering to him a coat
of tar and feathers, while against his wife
many threats too vile for repetition were ex
pressed or darkly hinted at.
Upon reaching the house they found Da
venport and his family had retired. In res
ponse to their knocks bis mother, a very old
woman, rose and asked what they wanted.
They answered, “Some ice cream.” Upon
being informed that none was to be had, they
demanded that Mr. Davenport and his wife
should confide themselves to their tender
keeping. Upon this hein£ refused, and the
men warned away, they immediately com
menced stoning the house and endeavored to
break in the door, yelling “Drag her out,”
Kill the nigger,” “Roast them,” etc., etc.
Becoming seriously alarmed, the old woman
requested her son to hand her the musket,
which was, in fact, a blunderbuss of the most
antique pattern. This she protruded from
the window and threatened to fire but the
only answer was a shower of stones.
She fired two shots, the first being harm
less. the second taking effect upon a returned
Veteran named Ludd Shade, who was almost
instantly killed. This sobered the rioters,
and they beat a retreat, making no further
demonstrations. Davenport was immediately
arrested, a jury impanneled, and every ef
fort made to impute, blame to him and to his
family for the part they bad enacted, but
Yesterday afternoon the jury returned a
verdict of ‘justifiable homicide,” and Daven
port was released from arrest. While the
friends of the deceased swear vengeance
against him, the utmost excitement prevails
(the town being about equally divided in re
lation to Mrs. Davenport’s justification or
non-justification of the bomicsdej and there
has been, we learn, no little effort to make
political capital out of the unfortunate affair.
Mrs. Davenport informed our reporter that
if they hung her husband she would marry
thh blackest man in the State of Connecticut
that would have her.
Last Winter a negro was shot dead by a
white man with far less provocation than'

was given Davenport, and the white man
was fined the enormous sum of seven dollars.
The town of Greenwich is intensely “Cop
perhead,” and much virulence has been
shown toward colored people by the inhabi
tants of that vicinity. No longer than nine
weeks ago a gentleman of this citv, visiting
the village, was threatened with personal
chastisement for advocating negro suffrage.
Tbe most bitter feeling exists in the county
(Fairfield) against Africans and those who
are their advocates and friends, and colored
persona have frequently suffered insult and
outrage at the hands of their political ene
La9l week, the same party entered a house
belonging to a colored man a mile outside
the village, beat him and his whole family
nigh unto death. Tbe next day they beat
severely two colored coachmen of a gentle
man residing in that neighborhood, and the
day before the attempted outrage upon Da
venport and family,’they “floured” one of
the employes of the Amerlcus Boot Club,
entirely destroying the sight of one eye and
partially destroying the other.
It was currently reported that the real
cause of the bitter animosity shown toward
Davenport and wife was' jealousy. Mrs.
Davenport, who i9 a young and very comejy
female, was courted by several of the love
lorn swains of the village, but refusing all,
married a negro. Davenport is a handsome
Quadroon, has a tolerable education, and is
looked upon as the leading colored man of
the place. — N. Y. TSibhne.
The Assassination Plot at Acqnia Creek.
Plot of Negro laborers to Murder the Whites —
A Bloody Conflict—.rForty Arrests.
As stated on Saturday, Acquia Creek, Va.,
came near being the scene of a bloody affair
a few days ago, but fortunately the plans of
the disorderly parties were discovered in
time, and all those concerned in the plot
were put under arrest. The Washington
Star has the following additional particu
Since the railroad from Richmond to Ac
quia Creek has been placed in charge of the
owners, the company has been repairing that
portion lying between the Potomac and
Fredericksburg, the route being used mean
while by coaches connecting the boat Key
port, running from this city,with that portion
of the road in running order. To place the
road iu order, and to repair the wharf and
erect the necessary buildings, the company
have been working a number of white me
chanics and colored laborers. TheJatter, it
is said, have had very bitter and vindictive
feelings towards tbe whites, but there has
been no open outbreak. Tbe whites have
been latterly on their guard, apprehensive of
trouble, but finally began to suppose that
their fears were unfounded.
Tuesday night one of the colored men let
out the secret, informing them that they (the
blacks) had formed a compact to murder all
the whites at the place, and had for the pur
pose collected pistols, knives, hatchets, &c.,
which, at a preconcerted signal, they were
to seize during the night, and each one rush
and dispatch his victim. Tbe informant
Save the names of tbe principals and other
etails, and also told where the arms were.
The blacks outnumbering by considerable
the whites, the latter Bent to Stafford Court
House and informed the commandant of the
military of the matter, and on Wednesday a
sufficient force was sent down to capture the
plotters. Some of the blacks attempted to
resist oad fought desperately, and in the
melee, in securing them, one of them, we
hear, was killed outright, and two or three
received bayonet wounds. The military took
in custody 40 or 50 of the blacks, and march
ed them off to a place of securily, and also
gathefcd up the motley collection of deadly
implements which were found in the places
described by the informant.
There was considerable excitement during
the time intervening 'between tlic discovery
of the plot and the arrival of the military,
and preparations made by the few
whites, in ease the negroes attempted to put
their plans in execution, to give them a warm
reception. The clerk in charge of the com
missary stores packed them on a barge, and
pushed out into the stream, hut this was
done so quietly that the blacks were not
aware that it was on account of the dis
covery of their plot, and the arrival of the
military was the first intimation they had
that their plans had been made known.

Many exaggerated reports are in circula
tion about this affair. We publish below the
official report on the subject:
Game Point, August 2, 18C5.
Captain G. W. Hooker— Sir: I have the
houor to report that last night the negro
hands employed on the railroad at this point
raised, with the/avowed intention of murder
ing all the whites. I being very ill, and hav
ing lost much sleep, slefct very soundly, and
knew nothing of it until I was called by a
faithful servant from the neighborhood. The
insurgents by this time had Jrccomc quiet,
after running all the whites off. I very quiet
ly removed my stores and books, and re
turned this.-morning to find Lieut. E. C.
Lefeber, with a detachment of his command
(stationed at Stafford Court House) on the

Correspondence of the Sr. Louis Republican.
Guay mas, Sonora, '
Wednesday, May 24, 1863.
The terrible monotony and stupidity of our
life here has this week received the shock of
a -‘new sensation.” On the morning of the
22d instant, very early, about 000 French
troops, including 52 cavalry—Chasseurs
D’Afrique—moved out of the city while
everybody slept, going so quieify that, very
tew ol the sleepers were awakened. They
rose in the morning to find that half the
French had gone, and speculation was busy
to determine what the movement meant.
Some of the more ardent partisiana of tho
French, who believe that fifty French sol
diers can thrash ten times as many Mexicans,
did not doubt that this small torpe of 650
men had started to open commniication with
Hermosillo, and that they. wouklj make the
march in spite of Pesqueira’s 2/Lp or 8,000
men, and capture and UoUWpgJureest aud
wealthiest city <4 the State;
Hut others vv l i T- of tlih
meat was only a reconnoissftuce, designed to
ascertain the position and numerical force
At night of the 22d we began to get the
news, ft appears that the French force
moved out from the city about 12 miles, de
viating from the Herinosillo road about five
miles out, taking a direction towards a range
of mountain hills lying between the Hermo
sillo and Bau Marcial roads.
The 52 Chasseurs D’Afrique were in the
advance, the infantry being marefthan a mile
in the rear. They encountered on the road
a score or so of Pesqueira’s horseman, who
took to their heels, making toward camp
with considerable speed, the Chasseurs in
lively pursuit. They struck into a canon,
or dry bed of a creek, running down between
two mountain hills, and before the Chasseurs
were aware of it they had ridden right into
the heart of Pesqueira’s army, which was
enpamped on the hills on each side of the
canon. The French captain of cavalry
finding that he had plunged into a trap, his
men being in the center of from 1,000 to 2, -
OuO men, who commenced shooting from the
hills on each side, instantly decided that the
safest course was to continue) at a rapid gal
lop, on through the Mexican army and then
wheel and make a detour back to the French
infantry. Buddenly, however, he heard the
Mexicans sounding the retreat, and, giving
the word, his men wheeled and rode back,
cutting and slashing as they went, losing five
men, a Lieutenant and four privates. It was
a marvelous escape. But the Mexican forces
were as much.astonished and astounded to
see those 52 French troopers in the midst of
them as the Chasseurs were to find them
selves there, and a paDic seized them.
The whole army melted away, going belter
skelter over the bills, the chief officers being
in advance. The French in tin try did not
get within fighting distance, except with ar
tillery, with which shells were sent after the
retreating forces. It is difficult to get any
trustworthy statement as to the number of
Mexicans killed. The figures given range all
the way from three to one hundred and fifty.
The probability is that very fev were killed,
as really no attacking force could get at them.
Thev fled instantly upon the apparition of the
fifty-two troopers in their centre, giving no
chance for a battle, or even a skirmish.
Some of their supplies and munitions were
captured, but they got off with their three or
four pieces of cannon.
The French made no pursuit. Indeed it
was impossible over those 1411s. The day
was prodigiously hot, and, after resting till
toward night, the French all fame back to
the city—the result of the lay’s business
being that Pesqueira’s army vanished, re

A young man in Canton, by the name of
Case, fell desperately in love with a Miss
Wright, who did not reciprocate, and “gave
him the mitteu.” Case attempted suicide
by taking laudanum, and went into convul
sions. For a while his life was at stake,
but his physician succeeded in bringing him
out of the most alarming symptoms, and he
is now in a fair way to recover
A MAN READS HIS BIBLE AND GOES TO THE

A man by the name of Isicius Carpenter,
of Ellington, ,shot himself on Friday, the

his actions for some time previous, having

SUICIDE OF A MAN WORTH SBO,OOO— HE IS CON
SCIOUS, AND TALKS FOR SOME TIME WITH THE
HALL IN HIS BRAIN.
[From the Hartford Times, August 5.)
Just as we are going to press we learn that
an elderly man by. the name of Coffin, resid
ing in West Hartford, shot himself in thp
head with a pistol last evening. The partic
ulars in the case are substantially as follows:
Mr. Coffin had not been in good health for
some time past, aud has been very much de
pressed at times, and fears have been en
tertained by his friends that he would make
an attempt upon his own life; in fact, it is
said that he did take a dose of poisou last
year, and that bis life was with much diffi
culty saved by the efforts of his physician,
Dr. Ellsworth, of this city. It seems that
last evening, about five o’clock, Mr. Coffin
went into the cellar of his house, and dis
charged a ball from one barrel of his revolver
into his head. The pistol was held in his
right baud, and pointed to a spot jqst back
of and two inches above his right ear. The
ball passed downward into the brain toward
a point back of the left ear; but did not come
out, remaining in the brain. Some of/ his
family hearing the report, rushed down to the
cellar, and found him living and able to talk.
He told his friends something in substance
like this : “I am shot, and shall die : I mean
to kill myself; I have tried to do it since
last summer, hut was prevented; I have
done it now. Lift me up carefully so as not
to hurt me.” He was carefully lifted and
conveyed up stairs, but not without causing
him such pain as to make him scream. A
physician was called, and Mr. Coffin said to
him, “You are too latfi*tliis time. You
stopped it before—[alluding to the poison
last fall]—but you can’t now.” He con
tinned living through the night. Dr. Ells
worth of this city, was called, aud probed
tbe wound to a considerable depth, but
without finding the hall. Mr. Coffin did not
retain his senses, apparently, long after tbe
removal up stairs, but continued to live, and
was alive to-day at noon, though fast sink
ing. It is an unprecedented case, so far as we
know, that he should have retained his rea
son and power to talk so clearly, after a bul
let had been shdt through his brain. He is a
weathy citizen,owning property to the amount
of $80,000; and his family have highly re
spectable Connections by marriage in this
city. He came from Great Barrington,

[From the Hocking (O.) Sentinel,]
A farmer of Randolph, Wisconsin, last
week took a pretty girl with him to the cir
cus. His wife immediately went to the
druggist’s and bought some arsenic, which
she put into a pie. Her husband ate it the
next day for dinner, and at night was a dead
man. His wife is now in jail at Machisno.
