Governor Curtin, in his last.annual messege,
to the Legialature, recommended the policy of
establishing a school for the inculcation of
strictly • military knowledge. When this rec
ommendation was made, the necessities of the
state were great, while the military resources
of the same were alum* incalculable and inex
haustible. Pennsylvania has sent into the
field, fully armed and equipped, more than one
hundred thousand: men. .liVhen this force was
being recruited, the only difficulty that threat
ened to obstruct or delay its organization was
the lack of competent _and efficient officers to
take the command ; and even now that these
positions of, command' are filled, complaint , is
epeatedly, Made as to the incompetency 01
theirs who have assumed this authority, while
the frequent resignations of those summoned
before) the - , dniiitary commission instituted to
test the qualifications of officers, seem to justify
the complaint es to the 'inefficiency of certain
officers, and urge more forcibly the `necessity
for the establishment of some system of educa
tion, -whereby competent men can be furnished
for tkoM positions hereafter. The necessity
for an armed' forckto secure the successful ope
ration of the chit authority, will exist for
many years to come. Amnesties end 'treaties
of peace will not eradicate, thOugh they may .
allay the.elements of rebellion, and therefore,
the loyal elates and the nation rur#t.contribute
to the support of a large illitaty force for
years to come,in.order to secure the-tranquility
of the•Vnioo arid the speedy opetation of all
laws:estientisi to, peace and prosperity. When
the states are contributing to this armed force,
the mere strength oU nnoubers,thc)-Willingness
and the valor to'fighttOd conquet4iey
not forget the equal necessity of .rflacing such
force under. the control only of such men as are
fully abli to command i and to lead them to vic
tory.' IndividUalsAt tieir Own expense t however
generous may be their patriotism and their
ardent devotion to the country, eaneotafford to
qualify themselves for such important duties.
that is duty of the state, or nation, and still .
hirther JO eniiance.tlie,eifictency of our already
I .•
immense military resources, the state should at
once provide .. the most liberal means for the
-edpcition of these ,whonre to train cod: con/-
mend *hale forces. Some of our cotemporaries
are advocating the necessity of at once arming
the militia, and organizing large bodies of men
throughout this commonwealth, before we have
fitted - and eduateii others . to:lead and command
such forces. This.seemi like fully, thus to arm
and equip men before..they are drilled and dis
ciplined. The first duty'of-.the state should be
. tki'provide..the means o?f 'a Military education
and training before it, attempts to exact mili
tary-•service. There are:not means afforded for
such an education within the limita of the corn
monwerdth, a fact to which the Governor has
heretofore Es) ably..r,eferred,. and: therefore we
join inthe recommendation which zontemplates
the immediate Mtairr hintini'ef an institution
, iln, Which the knowledge necessary to,euccess in
-the military science can be attained: The-ar

men of the commonwealth. The education be
stowed while securing this knowledge, will not
be lost to the state, though the services ' t of a

of the invasion of the invaders will afford pro
lific themes for more than one fertile pen.
In his annual message to Congress, in De
cember, 1823, President Monroe announced the
doetibie on the subject of European occupation
of certain territory on this hemisphere, which
has Eloise taken his name, and is now referred
to as the Monroe doctrine!. This doctrine, since
the conceited interference of Eogland, France
and Spain, in the domestic affairs of Mexico,
for the purpose of placing a scion of European
nobility on the Mexican throne, is so frequently
quoted, that we deem it important to give the
precise language of the message itself, so that
those who are not fully acquainted with its
terms, may at once comprehend their fuii force
tend meaning. Every intelligent reader has
always underatcod that the Monroe 'doctrins ad_
vised a vigorous opposition to foreign interven
don.or control of the affairs of the governments
on this hemisphere, while the dullest. man in
the nation will be able to comprehend why such
intervention is attempted at this particular pe
clod in the histoty of our government. In the
message referred to, and on the subject to which
we now desire to call the attentionof the reader,
President Monroe thus addressed Congress:
"In the wars of the European powers, in mat
ters relating to themselves, we have never taken
any part, nor does it comport with our policy to
do so. It is only when our rights are invaded
or seriously menaced, that we resent injuries or
make preparations for our defenaii. With the
movements in this hemisphere, we are of neces
eity more immediately connected, and by causes
which must be obvious to all enlightened and
impartial uheervers. The politmal system
of toe allied powers is essentially different in
this respect from that of America. This differ
ence proceeds from that which exists in their
respective governments. And to the defence of
our own, which was achieved by the loss of so
canon b lood and treasure, and matured by the
wisdom of our most enlightened citizens, and
under which we have enjoyed unexampled fe
licity, this whole nation is devoted. We olds it
therefore to candor, and to the amicable relations ex
isting between the Uinta States rind t4641C powers, to
declare, that we sht.uld consider any attempt on their
part to extend their +yam to any ponion of this
nemisphere, as dangerous to our peace and safety—
Witu the existing colonies and dependencies of
any European power, we have not iUterfered
and shall not interfere. But with the governments
which have declared their independence and maintained
it, and whoa independence we have, on great consider
anon, and on just principles acknowledged, we could
not view any interposition for the purpose of %Frets
ing them, or controlling in any ether manner, their
destiny by an:Euro "tem power, in itny'otheitlight than
as the manifest adios of an unfriendly disposition to
wardethe anted States?'
This was the honorable position assumed by
the United States almost forty, years , ago, with
reference more especially to the turOplianliow-.
era of Spain and Portugal. The powers of
Europe evidently regard Mexico as "the sick
man" of, this continent, as they do Turkey of
the European. The three great powers which
now invade Mexico are all anxious to adminis
ter upon Ma estate. That Spain should seek to
re-possess Mexico is not strange, or that either
of the powers should covet the possession of the
isthmus, over which an enormous, commerce
now finds its transit. But the combination of
the three, plausibly excused, as it is, by insin
cere pretence, is remarkable. How insincere
one of these pretences is, that they did not
desire to change the government of Mexico,
bat only to obtain redress of specific grievances,
is seen in their rejection of the overtures of
Juarez, and their proposal now to erect a throne
in Mexico and place upon it an Austrian imbe
cile, with all the heredittiry vices of a cruel and
tyrannical race. The time is chosen, ajso,
when the United States have all theltr=gies
occupied in the supplmlon of - erinost formida
ble reballion,and-when it is imagined l ikre are
imptenel4s assert the approved policy of. our
government, as set forth in the Monica doc
trine. The little republic of Dominica, which
Spain overthrew the last slimmer, thus enlarg
ing her
.West India pm-calms, seems to have
been an experiment upon the temper of our
government, to try whether we would actiudesce
in a similar movement on a larger scale towards
. .
Mexico. The trial may, be disastrous to the
Gov. CURTI& addressed the following letter to
the chaiman of the committee of arrangements
of the Republican Union Felix; held in New
York on Washington's Birthday, in answer to
an invitation to be present on- that occasion.—
Gov. Curtin justly regards Philadelphia as the
metropolis,, and recites a historical fact familiar
only to , the, student, that that city was, the
home of the Father of his Country durlog.the
performancki of his civil service, and also the
centre of those scenes in his military struggles,
which have made his name greater than that of
