successfully violated lair and Dahlia mo
rality in illicit traffic with the rebels during
the early Dart of the war have found .their
operations during the En t year most dssas
trout'. Admiral Lee continues to command
the North Atlantic Squadron. Tho highest
encomium is pasted on the naval officer, as
men of sleepless vigilance end heroic bravery.
It is not known that any' vessels elude the
Vigilance of the South Atlantic Squadron,.
More than a year ago, operations were com
menced, with a view of interdicting all Oahe
and if possible of capturing Charleston itself;
but by reason of delays and difficulties in fit- '
ting Qnt the In-clad fleet, la demonstraion
was not made ti ll
till April 7th. A history of t the'
operations before Charleston IS than given. `
The Secretary then alludes to the conflict
that took place in Warsaw Bound between the
Weehawken and the Atlanta, and Concludes
that this remarkable result was an additional
testimony in favor of tali Monitor class of
vessels for harbor defense and coast surrey
against any navy vessel/ that have been or
are likely to be constructed to Visit our shore.
It appears to have extinguished whatever
lingering hope the rebels may Dave had of
withstanding oar naval power by naval means.
Admiral Bailey continues do command the
Eastern Gulf Squadron.
Then fellows a history 'of the operations of
the Southern Gulf Squadron under Admiral,
Farragut. Had a land force been in readi
ness to co-operate with the fleet Vicksburg
could hare been captured after the oceapation
of New Orleans. The blockade of the Gulf is,
satisfactory, and recently the rebel trail°
through Matamoros has become insignificant,
since the capture of Brownsville. Admiral
Porter in command of the Mississippi Squad
ron, is complimented as an officer of groat en
ergy and extraordinary vigor. It in but a lit
tle over two years shire we had not a naval
vessel on all the Western waters. Now we
have a hundred Vessel carrying 462 guns and

The naval force at, the commencement of
'the Administration consisted of seventy.eix

commission. The additions which have sines
been made hare elevated the country into a
first class naval power. In the following ta

'There hare bans added to the nary during
the past year, by purchase, some thirty tugs,
over fifty steamers for blockading and supply
purposes, and over twenty other vessels f.,r
tenders and storeships. At least , twenty of
the steamers were captured in endeavoring to
violate the blockade.
The Secretary then discusses at some length
tho improvements la naval vessels. Alter
speaking of the wonderful revolution that has
taken place la naval architecture since the
war broke out, he proceeds as follows : The
Monitor class of armed ships with revolving
turrets, and from guns - of hoary calibre, has
proved itself wall adapted for barber defense
and coast eerier, and in some emergencies
these vessels, from their great powers of endu
rance, hare shown themselves efficient and
serviceable In offensive operations. This form
and description of vessel which originated in
the inventive genius of Capt. John Ericsson,
will : : - perform not only all that should be ex
pected of them to make our harbors secure,
bet when of enlarged capacity may supersede
shis or higher pretensions.
10 maintain our rightful maritime position
and predominancy on the oceans, vessels of
greater sloe than any tarretted vessel yet
completed may be essential. . Not only moot
they carry.guns of a heavier calibre than have
heretofore been used at sea; but In order to
make long cruises and to rope successfully
with any force, these vessels must have all
possible strength, endurance ani speed.
Their structure Mist therefore afford space
enough for full sailing

most powerfal steam mac hinery; =id the large

Probably greater strength of iron, permits the
construction of ships of greater silo and finer

their parts are safe from lire and are better
protected from great leeks, as they can have

great durability they aro prob ably in the end
not more costly. An iron vessel, moreover,
can be taken front the water and placed on

With wooden vessels. The disadvantages- of
iron vessels aro the serious local weakness of
the thin plates composiug the bottom of an
Iron ship, the danger that would result from

their liability to rapidly become foul ha salt

impaired—there requiring to bo frequently

when the plates are broken or smaehed by

the difficulty in making temporary repair of
allot holes and the limited number of artisans
yet procured having skill in this description of
It should- also bo borne in mind that while
we have several navy yards for building yes-
sole, the government possesses not a single
yard and establishment for constructing these
iron vessels, nor even for making plates and
shafting. While the principal attention of the
Department has in this minis of our affairs
been necessarily given to present and more
pressing necessities it has nevertheless kept
in view the important end of eatablishing our
naval power on a permanent basis. There aro '
no parties in this country fully prepared to
build Iron vessels of the magnitude and de
scription proposed, and the present high prices
of uustenal anti labor unavoidably nuisance
the cost. The Government itself is unpre
pared to execute any such work, having no
suitable yard and establishment, and is conse
quently wholly in the hands of private par
ties to demand what they think proper, add to
prescribe their own terms.
Besides the turreted teazels for coast de
fense, and large armored ships for naval con
flict, ..we nerd, and should have, steamers of
high speed, constructed of wood, with which
to sweep the ocean, and chase and bunt down
the versals of an enemy. Fortunately we aro
able to supply ourselves with teasels of this
description, and a competent and healthful
competition exists for their construction. A
large proportion of the establishments adapted
to the construction of nautical engines have
been enlisted by the department in the man
ufacture of steam machinery for vessels build
ing at the nary yards and at private estab-
I lishmenta.
The Secretary advises not only an additional
navy yard, but also the enlargement of the
yard at Philadelphia, which could be done for
three hundred thousand dollars. But with
that addition the yard would still be wholly
inadequate to the public necessities, and to
small for an extensive establishment as the
want, of the Government require. It would
uhdoubtedly ho the part of wisdom and true
economy to procure ground with ample water
front for snob an establishment as the increas
ing peblie wants demand in -the vicinity sf
Philadelphia, and so 11040 as it tan be made
available to dispose of the present grounds
and apply the proceeds towards improving
the new location. League Island and Berens
Hook, near Philadelphia, are suggested us
suitable locations.
I deem it proper to again allude to the ex
pediency of establishing at no distant day a
naval depot, yard and foundry at tome acces
sible and suitable point on one of the rivers
is the valley of the Mississippi. The selection
of an appropriate Broaden for this purpose 1
where vessels can be constructed and repaired
is a question - of - national importance. The
United States have, at this time, ono hundred
naval versals en the Mississippi and its tribu
taries. Iron and coal, Al well as wood, with
all the materials for ships-of-war, are attend
ant, and may be realist contiguous to eligible
Steamers of iroa will eudate for ye•rs in
fresh water, and the naval rissole which the
government may place In those rivers will ba
preserved. Should the projected water com
munication connecting the northern lakes
with the great interior risers by an enlarged
ship canal be carried into effect, the Minis
sippi squadron could he made available for
the decenee of one northern frontier, when
circumstances required it.
The Secretary makes a strong appeal in Le- 1
half of Naval Education, urging the thorough
instruction of every officer of the line in Engi
neering,ein addition to their llama acquire
ments. The naval service and the country
have suffered injury that eau scarcely be es
timated, from the want of thorough; capable
and well educated engineers.
Many of our most efficient respell bars
been disabled and crippled is the midst of
their cruise, and sometimes even at the very
commencement of theirsortice, in consequence
of the incapacity of tie engineers, whereby
the country hare been deprired not only of
the use of tho vessel Sro weeks and sometimes
for months but the °abler' and crow have
been eensaained tubs tetivity instead of being
employed against the enemy. Some measures
are necessary to contract and prevent these
disasters so injurloy to the country, and I
know of 120110 so thorough and complete as
that publicly educating and trainingengineers
to the service.
The most important branch or study at the
Naval Academy is very appropriately sea
manship, a general knowledge of the applica
tion and use of steam, and practical mechanics
should follow, as almost equally ersential.
Line ofileete of the Navy, of whatever rank,
should, moreover, have the privilege of at
leeturei and pursuing the study of
steam, mechanics, and, indeed, every branch
that may be taught at the Navy Academy,
and it is recommended that arrangements be
made for carrying into effect these suggestions.
Fronting, as our country does, on the two great
oceans, this system would insure to us, let,
reseals built and ready at alt times for fighting
purposes. 2d, An organizattion of able and effi
cient officers with well trained and educated
