The successful construction of tuo canal, of

added to tho necessity Imposed upon the enemv

The regrocs, who are largely engaged upon the
Work of constructing the canal, behaved well

never for an instant ilinciilng, but standing to
their work munfully and creditably. This fact
wa. a source of favorable comin;ut during the

In every view the substantial results of the day
remained to us at nightfall. There can be no

his temerity in killed und wounded. The work

Congratulatory Order of
Secretary Welles for
His Gallant Services
at Mobile.
Wasiiinuto.n, Aogttst 16. Tho Secretary of
the N ivyi has addressed the following to Ad
miral Furragut :
Navy Dkkaktmknt, August 15, 1861. Sir:
Your deputch of the, .Oth instant, stating that
you had, on the morning of that day, entered
Mobile Bay, passing between Forts Morgan and
Gaines, und encountering aud overcoming the
Rebel flee t, 1 bud the satisfaction to reoeive this
Si me preliminary account of your opori'ions
had previou-ly reached us through Reb. 1
( hauiiels.
A';uiii it Is my pleasure und my duty to con
gratulate you and your bravo as-ociatei on an
aehieienient uncqualed lu our service
by any other c imiimuder, und only sur
patstd by that unparalleled mval triumph
of the squadron under )sur command in tbe
spring of 1SC2, when, proceeding up the Missis
slppi, jou passed Forts Jackson and St. Philip,
and overcoming nil obsUc'es, captured New
Orleans and restored unobstructed navigitlon
to the commercial emporium of the great central
valley of the Union.
Tie bay of Mobile w as not only fortified and
guarded by forts and batteries ou shore and by
submerge i obstructions, hut the Ri;b.'!s bad
also lolkctcd there a formidable fleet
ctmmnndcd by their highest naval oitlccr,
a former captain in the Union Navy, who,
false to the Government and the Union, hud de
serted bis country in the hour of peril, and
leveled Ids guns against the flus which It was
his duty to have defended.
The poFscssion of Mobile Ray, which you h.ivo
acquired, will close tbe illicit tratlic which has
been curried on by runulng the blockade in that
part of tiie Gulf, and gives point and valuo to the
suci cts jou have achieved. Great results iu war
aie seldom obtained without great risks, and It
was nut expected that tbe possession of the
harbor of Mobile would be secured without dis
aster. The less of the gallant Craven and his brave
con paniont with tho Tecunueh, a vessel that was
invulnerable to the guns of Fort Morgan, by a
concealed toiptdo, was a casualty which no
human foresight cou'd p event.
While tbe nation awards cheerful honors to the
living, she will ever bold iu grateful remem
brance tbe memory of the ga'.laut and lamonted
dead, who pciiled their lives for their country
apcl iprrt in hr cutis.
I To you and the brave offlcen aad tailors of
yoar squadron who participated la this great
achievement, the Department tendon It) thanks
and those of the Qoveruineut and country.
Very respectfully, Gxoboh Wkllb,
Becretary of the Navy.

tlci s we have heard of for s 'mo time, and one
which is against the very best Interest of tho
Government, is imw lndng crpetrated In this
city by naval recruiting oillci rs. Y. stj-rd iy live
young men prescn cd them -elves at boa Iqua ters
and desired to enter tho navy. The fattier of one
ot tho .vonmt mm accompanied them for the pur
pose of seeing justice done.
When they applied they were informed by one
of tho i ttlcials in charge that they woo d have to
place themselves in thu htods of a broker, as all
business was done through that class of indi
viduals. At the s uiue lime a broker who was
walling in tho ntllco was pointed out to them
He Informed the young men that If they desired
to enter the service he would givo tliLiu eah a
certain sum, just about one half what they were
entitle d to and whh h the Government a lows.
Of course they refused to submit to a su ivo of
this kind, and left utter having in vain endea
vored to deal directly with those whom tho Gov
ernment pays io attend to Ibis duty. Th s singu
lar proceeding was reported to tho Ciuef of
Police, and w ill at once bo brouir'it to the atten
tion ol the Navy Department.
should act in tins manner the reader mast
Ii was also brought to the attention of tho Dis
trict Attorney a few days siucc that It is lain ici
ble to have a man swum iuto thu navy an I cre
dited to Philadelphia, ns some of those having
charge if naval enlistments i-oem very muju
interested in J rsey. These are HM tcra 'hat
atlect the interest of our city, mid it is to ie hope, I
that the measures taken tonurds putting a stop
to such proceedings will prove effective.
Ni;w Military Oiioani.ations. Under the
lawgiving the Governor of Pennsylvania power to
orgunl.o ton new regiments as part of tbe qti )ta
of tho State, power was also gra.ited to him to
muster in conditionally otlieers to recruit for the
new regiments, with the rank of second nonten
ant and recruiting ollicer. These lioiitenints,
everul ofc whom havo been appointed for this
city, hove power to enlist aud administer tho
oath, which holds the recruit to service. After
being enlisted and sworn into tho -rvice, and
psssing tbe surgeon's examination, tho recruits
are clothed anil sent lo camp.
Hut, her. totorc, the recruits could not he mus.
ten d Into the I niu d States service un il tho com
pany had the minimum number of men (SO)
therefore could not lio credited for local bounty,
which was a great obstacle in getting recruits for
the new companies. II y a recent ordor from tho
War Department this lillll.'ulty is now obviated,
by which the recruits for now organiz itions c iu
be mustered in singly or by squ ids as soon as
they aie enlisted and p isseJ surgeon's examina
tion. If men prefer now organi. atlons to old
ones, there is now nothing to prevent them from
joining the same they will tie enlisted and mus
tered by the lieutenants appointed for i h it pur
pose, in the same manner thai other recruiting
otlieers enlist men for the old regiin-nu in tho
field. Of the ten new organizations, three arc
being rnised in this city.
Shootino AnAin. ltctwecn 11 and 12 o'clock
last night, a man by the name of Andrew Arthur,
about '26 years of nge, was shot in thu neighbor
hood of Kifih und Sbippcn streets. It seems be
had been with a party of rough characters in a
tavern corner of Filth and Rbdford streets, where
some liillie ulty arose, and alter coming out of the
tavern he shut, supposed by one Fiiink
Dillon, a ill,. meter wed known to the Police. Up
to 1 c'cliK:k this afternoon tin offender had not
been arrested. The 1'ijiir d man Is said 1 1 b : in
a very i ritieni condition, the bi 1 having ta'icu
e tfect in his stoma h.
Fast Dhivino. Fast driving is more strictly
prohibited i.t Fa 'minuet l'li'l; than it is lu our
public highways. Notwithstanding this fact,
however, the Park Police have occasion now und
then to overhaul cert tin parties who havo not the
fear ot the law la-foie them. Ye t rdiv, Joun
Shei rer und John Schiiterui in ma le their ap
li:ranco in the Park, und drove rapidly around
tho grounds. A child narrowly e-eaped scrums
ii jury, the bor-e pas-lag over tlie little one with
out touching her. Tho two men were arrested
and held to answer by Alderman Hutchinson.
IIioiiway KoiiniitY. This morning James
MeColgnn was lafore Alderman Plonkiugtou,
charged with highway robbery. It seems that
between H and 9 o'clock lu-t night he stopped a
lad about fourteen years of ugc ut F.ightli and
Vine streets ami inquired of him the time. The 1 ti
ter pulled out his viaicu.u hen Mef'uU m snatched
It and ran oil. He was pursue. 1 ana captured
and h iked tip a;l nielit. This moruiug he w s
sent to prison to await It's trial.
Hiiinvy's SiiAtti'siioin i rs. This morning re-
ei oiling stations were opened for the Ave cum
panics of Rirney's Slmrpshoo'ers to be raised in
this city. Five captains will take charge of the
recruiting In dith rei t parts of tho city, while
Colonel Moore will have his general headquarters
til No. ..'( Chesnut street. Leery rxortion will
be made lo till these live companies before the oth
of September.
Assavlt and Thia morning
Thomas Duffy was beforo Alderman Hunter,
charged with assaulting the Sergeant of the
Nineteenth Ward Police. It seems thut a free
light occurred, when the sergeant interfered and
attempted to arrest the ringleaders. Dairy, who
was one of the worst of the gang, struck the oitl
ccr and was consequently tulycu iuto custody and
committed lor trial.
Etaiuuno A ffair. Michael Sullivan was
arrested yesterday upon the charge of having
stabbed another man on Sunday last, at
Eighteenth and Pennsylvania avenne. The two
men got iuto a squabble, when Sullivan cut his
opponent, lio was held to uau uy Alderman
