The vast amount of labor and talent bestowed upon the ieading journals of the day, the close attention paid to their numerous departments, when combined with the extraordinary facilities enjoyed for the rapid communication of intelligence, now about being Tendered world-wide by submarine telegraphic communication across the Atlantic, effect an end which realizes one of tho grandest conceptions of the hitman mind. Among tbe most mysterious and unfathomable attributes oi the Deity are those which endow Him with ths power of beholding all things, and of being everywhere at the same time.
