Telegraph Insulators. We were shown yesterday a sample of insulators which have recently been manufactured at the Pacific Pottery, in this city, to be used on the line of the telegraph between Placerville and Salt Lake City. They are constructed of the same material from which stone ware is made, and from experiments previously instituted we are advised that no doubt is entertained of the success of the application. Although this is, apparently, a trifling matter, it is in fact one of great moment inasmuch as it would otherwise be necessary to send to the East for the required article, and great delay would be caused thereby.
