the pest in its strong hold. No
matter, the money can be spent
in some other way, perhaps.

stated by friends of the late W. S.
Ol'Brien, that the person at Baldwins
hotel,, representing himself ap P. S.

just what he represents himself to be.
But it does not necessarily follow that

fact he can do nothing if he would.
Nothing has transpired to show that
he has any such design.

A provision of the new army
bill which will hardly meet public
favor, is that abolishing- ''govern
ment arsenals so far- as they are
manufactories of arms, ammuni
tion and ordnance. 3Jhis involves
the. sacrifice, of the fapious aijmory
at Springfield, where the. best
arms in the world are. constructed..
If the manufacturing of arms and
ammunition is stopped, the govern
ment will have to obtain war ma
terial by contract-a process wljicjh
is sometimes made profitable, to
contractors. The provision should
be looked ia,to to see. if it has any
other purpose than, to serve, pri

As I have been making a few refer
ences to the past, I tako a brief retro
spect of ocean navigation, During one
of the best seasons for te trans-Atlantic
trade the passages to Liverpool aver
aged 22i days, while the homeward
voyages averaged 33 daya.. At the
time referred to (1840) there were six
teen sailing packets in the above men
tioned service, and, therefore, if they
had a good run two could leave, this
port every week. At present, how
ever, a half dozen steamships per week
is only a moderate sailing list. In
L1839, when steam was. but little known
on the ocean, the los3 of shipping in
clude 442 craft, of wnch 74 were, first
class vessels, and the loss of life wast
537 reported, besides many who, were
unknown, The year previous. the loss
o life was 756. In 1834 the loss of
life, reached 1,256.
