THE KAVV. The report of the Secretary of the Navy hercwilh accompanying, ex plains fully the condition of that branch of the pnblicservicc,its wants and deficiency, the expenses incurred during the prist year, and the appro priation for the same. 1 1 also gives a complete history of the services of the navy for the past year. In addi tion to its regular service, it is evi dent that unless early steps arc taken to preserve our navy that, in a few years, the United Slates will be the weakest nation upon" the occsn of nearly all the rrcat powers. With an energetic, progressive and business people HUe ours, penetrating ami i forming business relations witu every part of the known world, a navy strong enough to command the re spect of our Hag abroad, is necessary for the full protection of their rights. I recommend a careful consideration by Congress of the recommendations made by the Secretary of the Navy.

An ex penditure of $5,000,000 per annum for the next five j ears, if it would re store to us our proportion of the car rying trade of the world, would be profitably expended. The price of labor iu Euroie has so much enhanc ed within the last few years, that the cost of building and operating ocean i steamers in the United States is not so much greater than in Kurope, that 1 believe the time has arrived for ('onrcsc to take this subject into consijcr3liou THE DEPARTMENT OF JL'STICE.

THE PUBLIC LANHS. Duping the last fiscal year there were disposed of the public lands II,- 804,175 acres, n quantity greater oy'tme in the current history of the 1,099,270 acres thau was disposed ot j country, and it is no doubt true that the previous year. Of this amount j ,i,jg j8 ,jue j,, ft (Treat, measure to the 1,370,320 acres were sold lor cash ; j efforts of the I'urcati of Education. 339,400 acres, located witli military j Tinl, 0fljcc i3 coutinually receiving warrants, 4,071,332 acres were taken j evidence which ubiimbuitly proves for homesteads ; (.93,013 acres ''''-' its clliciency from the various insti-lK-atcd with college scrip; 3,534,SS7 j i,ii01,3 ,,f 0arning and educators acres were granted to wagon roads; i tlirougliout the country.

There were issued from thc Patent Ofliee, during the year ending Sep tember 30, 1871, 13,C2C patents, 233 extensions, and 550 certificates and registers of trade marks. During the same length of time 18,587 ap plications for patents, including re issues and designs, have been receiv ed and 3,100 caveats filed. Thc fees received during the same period amounted to $700,951 80, and thc total expenditures to $023,553 90, making the net receipts over the ex penditures $77,400-90. Since 1830, 200,000 applications for patents have been filed, and about 130,000 patents issued. The office is being conduct ed under the same laws and general organization as were adopted at its inauguration, when only from 100 to 500 applications were made ier annum. The 'Commissioner shows that the office has outgrown thc orig inal plan, and that a new organiza tion has become necessaiy. This subject was presented to Congress in a special communication in February la.-t, with my approval and thc ap proval of the Secretary or the Interi or; and the suggestions contained in said communication were embrac ed in the bill that was reported to the House by the Committees oil Pat ents at the last session. The subject or the reorganization or the Patent office as contemplated by the bill rc fcrrcd to. is one of such importance to thc industrial interests of the coun try that I commend it to the atten tion of Congress. The Commission er also treats ih subject of thc sev aration of the Patent ollice from the Department of the Interior. This subject is also embraced in thc bill heretofore referred to. The Com missioner complains of the want of room for the model gallery and for the working force and necessary files of the offices. It is hniKissiblc to transact thc business of tbc office properly without more room in which to arrange files and drawing that must be consulted hourly in the transaction of business. The whole of the Patent Office buildings, will soon be needed, if it i not already, for the accommodation or the busi ness or thc Patent Ollice. pensions. Thc amount paid for pensions iu the last fiscal year was $30,109,340, an amount larger bj- $3,708,434 than was paid during the preceding year. Of this amount, $2,313,409 was 'paid under the act of Congress of Febru ary 17, 1871, to survivors of the war of 1812. The annual increase of pen sions by the legislation of Congress has more than kept pace with the na tural yearly losses from the rolls. Thc act of Congress of June 8, 1872, has added an entimated amount of $750 per annum to thc rolls without increasing the number or pensioners. We cannot, therefore, look for any substantial decrease in the expendi tures of this necessary department for some time to come, or so long as Congress continues to so change thc rale of pcusons. The whole number of soldiers enlisted in the war of the rebellion was 2,088,523. The total number of claius for invalid pensions is 170,000, being C per cent, of thc whole number or cnliiAcd uen. The! v.. ...... 1,449 navy lensioncrs and 1,730 wid- reduc-jows,orphaiisand dependent relatives, j making thc whole numlier of naval j lnmsioners 3,179.

Thc alfairs iu the territories are generally satisractory. Thc energy and business capacit' or the pioneers who arc settling up the vast domains not j'et incorporated into States are keeping 'pace in the internal improve ment and civil government with the older communities. In but one or them, Utah, is the condition of af fairs unsatisfactory, except so Tar as the quiet or the citizens may be dis turbed by real or imaginary danger or Indian hostilities. It has seemed to be the policy of the Legislature or Utah to evade all responsibility to the government or the United States and even to hold a position in hos tility lo it. I recommend a caitTuI revision or the present laws or thc territory I13' Congress and tlw enact ment of such a law as the one pro posed in Congress at thc last ses sion, for instance, or something simi lar to it, as will secure peace, the. equality rail citizens before the law, and the cxtinguishinciilof pobygamv. Since the establishment or a terri torial government for the District or Columbia, the improvement or thc city or Washington and surround ings, and thc increased prospert' of the citizens, is observable to the most casual visitor. The nation being a large owner of property in this tit)-, should bear with the citizens of the district a just share of these improve ments. "I recommend, therefore, an appropriation to reimburse thc citi zens for the work done oy Ihein along and in front of the public grounds during the past year, and a liberal appropriation in order that the im provement and embellishment of the public buildings and grounds may keep pace with the improvements made by the territorial authorities.
