r,pen"d a few week's fir;o by Assistant
Secretary of thi Navy William McAdoo.
The general resnlt of all tho work done
at u!l there places and in tho various
Fhipyards to thus snr:ned up by jMr.
JlcAdooal; tho close of tho fiscal year
liiiit: "Tiionnrrfd States, while it does
ui;t p.wsrss a great navy in tho number
of Unships, has within its limits colossal
plants, hoih pnbha and juivate, and
great tirades uf skilled workmen, led by
contractors, designers and inventors of
marked ability. It is therefore essen
tially and Hiibstnntially oapablo of na
tional defense, and, if need be, of offense,
operations." Tho general summary of
every naval report of this year is that,
wo are juii. -ready to make a roat navy
Bud to niako it quickly.
Histjiry is taught at this navy yard
by object lfssotw, and tho lessons nro
fa-iciiiatint; indeed. Firr.t. is tho progress
in ordiianco making Khown by tho old
gnus ranged in their order from tho old
est piece hammered out by tho black
s.nithsiof colonitil times and coming
down or up through nil tho changes
wroudit by tho Kevolution, tlio second
V.T.r with Great Lrilaiu and tho ltarba
rv. Jfn-siean and civil wars. Potun of
tlu; old pnm look like mure nnwteldly
lumps of metal, bearing a ludicrous re
s ".nblancu th the "toy gnus which boys
sometimes niPiuifactnro of load on tho
Irishman'!) principlo "take a hole nnd
pr.ur tho :u around it." Tho old mor
tars whieii firod hot tthot into tho cities
of tho Barlnu-y const look like big ket
tles with somewhat raised sides, and to
tho ordinary civilian eyo it would seem
impossible to givo any designed direc
tion to. a shot from ono of them. Tho
Algerines had captnred various pieces
from tho French and, Spaniards in the
e"i)tmy before wo went to war with
them, and it was onr good fortuno to
cayturo some if thoso pieces.' which are
hero to excite tho pride of visitors. Tho
qneor old inscriptions on them can still
be ciphered a::d indicate that ono was
regarded as a terror to tho foe, another
destroyer, aud so ou.
Every avenue and square in tho yard
boars a historic name. Tho first nvenuo
is named for Hear Admiral John A.
Dahlgren, tho second for Commodore
Lew is Warrington of tho war of 1S12,
tho third for Commodore Charles Mor
ris of the same war, the fourth for tho
immortal Commodore Hull, and so on.
Tho list of commandants of tho yard is
also fdlof interest. Theth'st appointee,
Captain Thomas Tingey, took the placo
Jan. ISOO, held it. :!'.) years and died
in office. A melancholy interest attaches
to tho record of Captain Beverly Kill
lion, who was appointed by the first Pres
ident Harrison, and two years later was
killed by the bursting of the Peacemak
er on tho Ptimvlon tit tlio time when
two members of the cabinet and various
other persons were killed. The sixteenth
commandant was Captain Franklin
Buchanan, appointed in May, 1H,V., who
went south when the civil war bi g;.n
and became famous in the Confederate
navy. Rear Admiral Il.ihlgrcn was the
twenty-second and died inolHcoiu INTO.
The present commandant, Captain J. A.
Howell, is tho thirty-third ;ufl took tho
place Feb. 1MK!.
A Hern!! Saber.
Our navy department is rich in relics
nnd memorials of many kinds, but the
only ones kept at this yard tiro the old
guns mentioned. By somebody's awk
wardness the I'nitid Stales failed to be
come tiio owner of one very interesting
relic, which was, however, a few wee ks
ago presented to tlio Annapolis Naval
academy, and that is doubtless as well.
This is the famous battle saber of Cap
tain Samuel Chester Keid, who com
manded the brig-ol'-war (lemral Arm
strong and won the astonishing victory
at Fayal, Azores, in September, lsll.
With this saber Captain Reid, inn hand
to hand fight, killed tlio tir.-t lieutenant
of the British frigate Rota cud wounded
several others. Tho blood of that com
bat was never wa.-hed oil" tho saber and
is st ill .-lightly visible. At the ball given
to Lafayette in New York in IN'.'-I Cap
tain Reid woro this sword for tho lust
time, it is believed, alter which ii was
laid away as a precious memorial. His
son, Colonel Samuel ('. Reid, tendered
it us a free gift to the United States,
and in March, Js'.IO, Senator Voorhees
of the committee on the library e'Veied
a joint resolution providing for the ac
ceptance of tho sword and tho striking
of memorial gold medal to be pre
sented to tile son. The latter part of the
resolution was opposed so vigorously
that the matter was delayed some three
years, wh-n Colonel Reid grew indig
nant nnd vithrrcv tlio olfer. A year
lab r he presented it to the ac idemy. It
is the judgment of our naval historians
that, "tlie injury inflicted on the British
forces at I" aval resulted in such delay
that they diil not r 'ach New irloans till
after General .T:!eso:i ha I had time to
prepare for them. . .bin r.ri.v, says
Cooper, it. is likely the city would have
fallen without a blow and possibly the
whole history of tho west liavo been

Of the floidittj; memorials of tlm.hc
roie ago of our navy there are few in
deed, as it is a melancholy fact that the

life of a ship, so to speak, is generally
very short. The old sailing frigato
Portsmouth is still afloat e.s a training
ship, with a crew foinp--ned mostly of
apprentice boys. With her black hull
low in the water and square gun ports
for the old style battery and high ma
she is an oddity indeed among our mod
ern ships. Yet naval here say that
with nono of these molu'u improve
ments and obliged to tnist to wind and
tide tho old wooden vi ssel is stiil al
most as comfortable as any of tho new
ones, for there is no smoke or dirt from
engines and boilers, and -in warm
weather her decks are much cooler than
those of a steamer. The Constellation
after many years' service as a practice
ship has gone to New-port us a, receiv
ing ship, whole she will be roofed in,
and her hitdi mtlsts, which made her for
years tho fastest sailing warship in tho
world, will bo seen no move. The oiteo
famous Jamestown now lies at Hamp
ton Heads dismasted nnd dismantled as
a floating qnnrantino hospital. As ta
the often sung and celebrated Constitn
tion, everybody knows that, li'rt.o a fa
mous old wnrhorse or men horse, she is
kept for tho good she has done at-.d to
pral if v American pride nnd sentiment
that, most honorable pride in the na
tion's past, without, which no nation
cau havo an honorablo future.

One of the faults of piano pnpils in
primary grades is too rapid playing.
Once acquired, great difficulties will
follow. This is the fault of tho teacher.
It is surprising how few teachers fully
appreciate the necessity of nlower prac
tice or playing. Tho foundation of runs
ttnd passages of velocity is slow practic
ing, and t ho beauty can be. obtained in
no other way. "Play slowly if you ever
hope to play fast." It is tin easy task
for a teacher to start out w ith beginners
on the slow movement, but decidedly
diU'icult to make fast players over into
slow' players. Pupils lind it irskoiue to
play every note slowly nnd surely al'ler
having played them as fast, as the lingers
could work. It is not safe to allow ft
pupil to play otherwise than slowly dur
ing the iirst three grades, except a few
pieces that are especially well learned,
and iifter this only by degrees.
Scales and exercises are the most im
portant for beginners", and they should
bo taught without notes, (o allow tho
pupil to watch the position of tho hand
and movements of lingers. If nny finger
is found weak, it must do twice the
work of fho stronger ones, sons to ac
quire an even touch. In four months a
pupil of ordinary ability should play
and understand fully all the major and
perhaps also the minor scales, and yet
not one out of ten r.ceoniplishes thus
much. WhtiM fault; is it? The teacher's

they must be;;in at the foundation
