asked the Postmaster General, Whether the three Cables uniting Jersey with France and Guernsey are broken; and, when he expects to get Telegraphic Communication restored?

The two cables, the property of the Department, between Guernsey and Jersey are broken: it is expected that the repairing ship will roach Jersey next week, when immediate steps will be taken for repairing the cables. The cable between Jersey and France is the property of the Submarine Telegraph Company. I am informed by the Secretary of that Company that so soon as the repairs of the cables between England and Franco which are at present broken are completed, the repair of this cable will be effected.
