shall satisfy the United States that the Ameri

and further, that she had ho right to the

me words "immediate mease, as applica
ble to the delivery of the Virginius and the
surviving passengers and crew, imply, of
course, a reasonable time for its execution, as
some days must elapse before Havana and
Santiago de uuba can be reached.
The nxing of the zotn of December as the
time of saluting our flag is to allow tho neces

question whethor the damages shall be paid to

This decision waa not arrived at by the Span-
i8ii uoverument before it Had confidentially
consulted with the powers of Europe, and was

Secretary Robeson's Report—The United
States Navy Inferior to That of Any
Respectable Power—Results of the Polaris
Expedition—The Death of Capt.
The Secretary Navy, report
the President says there are now in the navy
165 vessels, carrying, exclusive of howitzers,
1,269 gnns, a reduction since his last annual
report, by sale and otherwise, of thirteen
A general enumeration of these vessels
presents 63 steamers other than iron-clads
and tugs, carrying 82G guns ; 23 sailing ves
sels, with 332 guns ; -lrt iron-clad vessels,
with 121 guns : and 25 tugs used for navy-
yard aud freight purposes. Of this number,
there are at present in commission for sea
service, distributed on the several foreign
stations, and on our own coast 46 vessels,
carrying 407 guns. The cruisiag or active
force of the navy, as they may be called, and
which is controlled by the appropriations made
and the seamen authorized by law, is about
tne Bame as last year.
Mix of our live-oan cruising snips are now in
various stages of forwardness at the several
navy yards. These are all of moderate size,
and none of tnem sumcientiy aavancea to De
of present use, but tliev are adapted to the
wants of of our cruising naw, and will, in a
few weeks, add materially to its strength and
efficiency. The eight sloops of war author
ized by the last Congress are all in process of
building. The valuable work thuB begun
should not be discontinued, but the Depart
ment should he provided with a moderate
amount of funds and authorized to commence
each year to build a certain number of tons,
to supply regularly the regular yearly expen
diture oi tne navai rorce, wniun will oi neces
sity, occur. The work of putting our iron
clad force in efficient condition, referred to in
the Secretary's last report, has been proceed
ed with as fast as the means necessary for the
extraordinary work could be spared f rum the
current appropriations for the suppoi t of tbe
navy. The wisdom of this action needs no
illustration from him at this time. Without it
we should have been left not only powerless
to assert our own ngnts, but almost defence
less against arrogance or aggression.
Tbe Secretary says the naval force on the
North Atlantic Station was reduced in the
spring and summer by ordering north as a
necessity some of the vessels which were
much in need of repairs, and whose crews
peeded a change, having been long in the
The expedition for the survey of the Darien
and Inter-Oceanic Canal has completed its
duties and submitted its reports.
The Secretary, in speaking of the Polaris,
says her cruise has been decidedly the most
successful of Arctic expeditions. The geo
graphical knowledge of the Arctic regions
has been largely advanced by it. A very par
ticular questioning of eveiy one of the officers
and crew of the Polaris, and of the scientific
corps, except the three persons yet unexam
ined, has completely l alia tied his associates
and himself that Capt. Hall's death occurred
from purely natural causes ; that his medical
treatment was Judiciously adapted to his case,
and that be was tenderly nursed and cared fcr
to the last.
The evidence has also made it manifest that
Capt. Hall wasralwavs faithful to the trust re
posed in him in assigning him to the command
of the expedition ;' that he was kind, firm,
and humane in the exercise of his authority ;
that he was earnest in his desire and in his
attempts to reach a high northern latitude,
and if practicable, the Pole itself ; and that
his untimely death was: an irreparable loss to
the expedition. It is also apparent that Capt.
Buddington, who succeeded to the chief com
mand on tho death of Capt. Hall, proved him
self to be a good seaman, and that in all dan
gerous positions in which the Polaris was
placed his conduct as the commander was
skillful and judicious the natural result of
long experience at sea and in command in
The Secretary renews the recommendation
that the forces in our navy yards be increased
and developed so that we may be prepared for
ail emergencies : that the old navy yard at
Philadelphia be abandoned, and new buildings
erected at League Island ; that the New York
yard be preserved in its present site, and that
the Pensacola yard be, in a measure, rebuilt.
The Secretary earnestly recommends that
ample provisions bo made for tho Bupport of
the Ordnunce Bureau, in order that nothing
may interfere with the efforts to supply our
ships with tbe most powerful guns.
The estimates for the next Ureal year are
$19,252,235, and fo this is added the 'sua of
864,539 for the current repairs of buildings,
docks, and incidental expenses in the navy
yards, etc. Thess estimates are less than
those of last year by rather more than $2,000,
000, but they do not include any extraordinary
expenditure for the permanent improvement
of the navy, nor amounts necessary for the
repairs of our iron-clad fleet, nor for the con
tinned prosecution of some of the great works
necessary to a proper condition of our naval
Since the conimoi:ceinent. of the presont
month events have taken place which make
it proper that the navy should be put at once
upon a footing for active service. It is by no
means the province of this Department, as
such, to take part in the conduct or discus
sion of any diplomatic question, nor should
its attitude, at a time wtien serious interna
tional difficulties are possible, be held to in
dicate anything more than a determination
on the part of a military department of
the Government to bo prepared for ac
tion should the necessity for action arise. A
respectable force of war vessels aud moni
tors is already on the sea and concentrating
at the statious nearest the scene of our pos
sible difficulties. Our whole available iron
clad fleet is on .hand, and every wooden war
vessel that will float is in active preparation
at the various naval stations. These will be
ready for sea, fully fitted, as fast as proper
crews can be provided for tlicm, and. if the
necessity for action uhould come befoi6 the
time for it arrives, all thero is of the Ameri
can navy which can be put afloat on the At
lantic Ocean, will be in condition and position
to take its proper part.
" Inadequate," says the Secretary, " as this
force may be deemed to the responsibilities
and pretensions of a Government like ours,
and greatly at a disadvantage, as we certainly
shall be in respect to the number aud charac
ter of our vessels iu a contest with the fleets
of any respectable i.aval power, I believe
th t the activity, skill, science, and experi
ence of our navy will be found equal to any
difficulty which courage dare to moot or
energy will avail to conquer."
Tbe Secretary concludes as follows : ' In
taking the action above referred to, the Navy
Department has already incurred considerable
expense, and has been forced to assume re
sponsibilities unusual in times of peace; but,
convinced of the wisdom of prompt and deci
ded action, I have not shrunk from those re
sponsibilities, nor hesitated, with tho ap
proval of the President, to make warlike
preparations in the interests of peace and hu
manity. I confidently rely for support in
this attitude upon the patriotism and good
sense of the American people and their rep
resentatives, who cannot fail to rememljer
tbat our naval condition is the result of
causes which have been constantly pressed
unon their consideration, but wrhich have
failed to receive full attention, doabt
less ou account of moio pressing pres
ent requirements aud obligations, and
who will clearly realize that duties constantly
postponed are certain to be more difficult anil
much more expensive when performem in
haste under tho pressure of imperious neces
sity. The Department has had iionecesnity to
overstep its appropriations, even if it were
lawful to do so, but the pressing demands of
the present will consume now what was pro
vided for the service of the year iu several of
the working bureaus. These must be prompt
ly relieved, if their work is to go on. The oc
casion has already shown, I think, that our
navy, as it exists, should at least be put in a
condition for active service ; and in any event
a moderate appropriation for this purpose
outrht at once to bo made, and, if war should
by any possibility come, we uiuui uu uueiauy
provided to utilize means we have, and to
provide others to meet the emergency.

Cities on the sea-coast, it is stated, are in a
very defenseless condition, and the Secretary
calls the earnest attention of Congress to the
fact, suggesting that $1,500,000, the estimate
of the Cnief of Ordnance, be appropriated to
put tbem in a sta'e of defense, and says this
sum will only provide the defenses with one
sixth of tbe complement of guns required for

GEN. SHEEMAU'S B1POBT.

tary of War, Bays the number of enlisted men
in the army is iS5 less than the 30,000 limited
bv law. In active regiments the number of
men tick and on necessary details about
posts will fully equal 25 per cent., so that the
actual strength for military service does not
exceed 19,652 man. In order that the regular
army should fulfill its arduous duties ou the
frontier, as also to form a model on which to
shape the volunteer and militia force of the
United States, I earnestly recommend that
Contiress be asked to hx the limit or tbe en

" The ear 1872 proved a disastrous ono to
life and property on water. Onehundred and
ninety-two casualties were reported as having
occurred to ttqim vessels, I y which 306 lives
are known to have been lost, aud, as nearly art
could be ascertained, resulting in the loss of
propertv to the amount of $4,008,113. Prop
erty amounting to $2,023,528, and 198 lives,
were lost through casua'ties by fire alone,
showing the urgent necessity of still greater
precautions being taken to guard against that
destructive element on steam vessels.
" Notwithstanding tho steam marine of the
country has suffered severely by reason of
casualties I am pleased to btate thit a con

an impetus to commerce which, it is hoped,
.may result in the establishment of other

number of steamships in this country which
shall traverse the seas under the American
flag, aud thus aid in the restoration of the
prestige of our commerce on tho ocean.
" During the year ending June 30, there
had been inspected by the various local
Boards 3.G53 steam vessels of all classes,
with an aggregate tonnage of 1,018,484. Cer
