Atlantic Telegraph

NEW YORK, March 27. – Private advices from London of the 15th state that Mr. Field and other leading gentlemen and capitalists interested in the Atlantic Telegraph enterprise were to meet Lord Palmerston in the afternoon of the 21st inst, and that the prospect of a satisfactory termination of negotiations with the Government in regard to raising the necessary capital to secure the proposed new cable were very encouraging.  Mr. Field confidently expected to return to New York with assurances of the earnest co-operation of the British Government in the great undertaking with which he has so long and ably endeavored to bring to a successful issue.
