SHIP BUILDING OF THE UNITED
Appended o the andual report of the
Secretary of tae ,Treasuo was a very neat
statistical char., illustrative of the progress
of ship building in the United States, pre
pared by Joseph iiimmo, Jr. From the ac
companying report we learn that the ton
nage of A.metle.an vebsels entered at sea
ports of the United States from foreign coun
tries rose froml i 22,582,017 tone during the
20 years from 1828 to 1848, to 49;562,920
tons, during the 20 years,frotn 1848 to 1868,
an increase o r 120 per cent. During the
same two periods of 20 years the ship
buildlpg of New England rose from 1,316,-
896 tons to 2,099,137 tons, an increase of
128 - per cent. , e
Wa r difference of only eight per ce'nt in
the two rates of increase is accounted for by
the relative increase, during the last five
years, in - the building of small 'male de
signed only for i the home trade, and by the
falling off in the building of large vessels
designed for the foreign trade. • ,
The chart shOws that previous to the year
1845 there was a gradual increase of our
ocean ship building, that since that' time it
has fluctuated frequently and widely, and
that during the last _ten years it has-,been
greatly depressed. 'The discovery of gold,
in California in 1848; find the apeculative pe;
rtod which followed, stimulated the ship
building interest, far beyond the legitimate
demands l',4* commerce. It ran up to its cul,
minationin 1845, when it fell off rapidly,'
and the commercial , revulsionof 1857 da..
pressed it to a lower point in 1859 than it
had touched since 1845. Before any mate.
rial notion had taken :place,' the war broke
out, and within two years the depredations
of rebel cruisers well-nightrave the'Ameri-
MA flag from the commerce of thp seas.
In 1882 the ship buildingof the, coast was
less than it, had been during any year since
A. D. 1844, and there , has been , but little
improvement since. The depression of our
ship- building is, duo, almost exclusively,-to
the great falling off in the building of large,
vessels designed for foreign trade."
The building of brigs, schoonenh and
sloops designed for the home trade is not
affected by foreign cmnpetition, from- the
fact that our navigation. laws exclude all
foreign vessels I,rom that branch of our com
The falling off in the building of:large •
vessels since the war is further illustrated
as follows: gluing the five yearefrom 1853
to 1808, 65 per cent. of our total . seagoing
tonnage built on the coast consisted of ships
and barks, while during the five years from
. 1863 to 1868, only 28 per cent. consisted of
ships and barks.
During the year 1855 —the mast prosper
ous year in the history of American ship
building—there' were 305 ships and barks
apd 173 schooners built in_the New Eng
land States, the aggregate tonnage 'built
having been 820,492 tons, while during the
year ending June 30, 1868, there were a
ships • and barks, and .214 schoimers built,
the aggregate tonnage having been 98,697
tons. It is ascertained, moreover, that the
average tonnage of ships and barks built
since the war has fallen off ten per ce t. /
A very large number of our best ships
were destroyed by Privateers dux.' gine

seagoing vessels are annually lost',or fibrin=

g' the year ending June 80, 1868, there
were but six ocean steamers built in the
United States, whose aggregate tonnage
amounted to 14,855 tons. Nearly all the
steamers built in thls country during the
last five years have been intended to meet
the demands of our coastwise trade.
The depletion of our forests of ship tim
ber renders it probable that within' the
next ten years we shall be compelled to re
sort to ironl as a ship banding material. The
iron ship building enterprise which sprang
up at several points in this. country before
the war, enjoyed for a while a degree of
prosperity. which gave promise of great fu
ture success. That interest is now prostra

In orderlto show our relative inferiority .
in this branch of ship building. it may be
stated that daring the year '1867, there were
99 , iron stilling vessels built in England,
Scotland and Ireland, whose aggregate ton

s stegmers whose aggregate tonnage amounted
to 90,823 tons; the iron sailing vessels
amounting to , 84 per cent. of the total sail

_per cent. of the total steam tonnage Sant.
Thus it is seen that the competition of

ANOTHER terrible State secret has bees
unearthed from the dust of three centuries,
Juana, the mother of the Emperor Charles
V., was the legitimate Queen of, Spain; the
historianisay thit she went mad in conse
quence of the sudden death of her husband
Philip. But, in reality, she was not mt.d at
all, but was kept cruelly imprisoned, first,
by her father Ferdinana, and then by her
son, the German Emperor Charles V., for
fifty long years. The persecutions of which
she was made a victim were commenced by
her mother, Isabella, because Juana uttered
heretical 'views about the persecutions of
heretics, (burning at the stake, &-c.) . After
Isabella's . death, her father, Ferdinand, con
tinued to maltreat the poor woman, in order
to reign in her place: Finally her own son,
Charles V., confired her in a dungeon, and
permitted himself to abuse and torture 'her
when she refused to take part in the divine
service held in the prison. These facts
have been brought to light by a German
historian, 31. Bergenroth, who derived them
from the autograph letters of Charles V.,
hitherto kept secret in the archives of Siman
cas, and published thr SYbel's
hope to see a comm..— amendment
framed and adopted which will couple uni
versal amnesty with impartial suffrage, and
make them a part of our fundamental law.
Of course the RePublicans of West Virgin
ia, Missouri andifennessee will not like to
be voted down'in their respective States, or
in portions thereof, by the now disfranchi
sed rebels, but no more will the now domi
nant rebels of Maryland, Kentucky and
Delaware relish the enfranchisement of
their black neighbors. No comprehensive
settlement of, a great controversy ever did
or ever can help exciting some local griev
ances, real or imaginary, as in this case.

sighted clamor in contemplation of endur
