From the St. Lout Republican.
It is stated that Mr. Vandtrbilt in es
tablishing a I'ne of steamships between
New York and European potts to run in
connection with his railroad system, sought
for American vessels for the 6et!ce; but
they were not to be had. 1 uero are very
lew nrst-cias ron steamers of Amencpi
build in existence; they it-e so costly,
tnrougn tae larm on iron, lumber and
nearly all other materials entering into
hcni, that we have nesrly ceased
to build them. Mr. Venderbilt would
have ordered the ships he needed
built tibroad, or he would have bought
them already built, and put them to work;
out ttiat was not allowed him; our nalga
i. on luwa stand nthe way. lliesy laws
deny the privilege of home re&Istt y to ves
se!s built abroad. There was nothing to be
done, therefore, but employ foreia phips.
built and owned abroad, to perform the
service and tnis was resorted ti at Inst.

publican statesmen are entirely satisfied
with tiie result. They hold that it N better

no business carrying our own immense ex
ports tr Europe and claiming flic frifght
money thereon, unless we can can them
m vessels built as well as owned at home.
Wc have tried this New Encland policy
for eighteen years ever since the Republi
can party came into power, and 'roin the
beginning n tb's i me we have seen our
shipping, which, vnder Detnocuauc rule.
covered every sea and was the glory of the
corctry, absolute free trade in ships, and
in eveu iiung that enters into the composi
tion ot snips. Lniler the Blame-Roach
system, a steamer bmlt in England costs
th'uy per cent less han one of the same
class and style built m America. If pro
tection were out ot the way, how Ion'' would
it be betore "the boot was on the other leg?''
If American cotton goods, cutlery,
agricultural machinery, and lo
comotive? are Bucccsstully competing
wttn me English artirles tn the
principal foreign markets, why may not
American ships do to same? When Mis
souri alone has more iron than a'l Englcnd
when our mechanics arc unrivalled for
skill and ingenuity, and when we lead he
word in tho variety ami profectioa of oir
labor saving appliance can we not, w ith a
fair chance, undersell England h ships?
Give us, then, the fair chance, and mean
while allow our shtpp'n' merchants to buy
vessels where they can be bought cheapest.
Wc may protect and subsidise for the next
century without accomplishing any good
result. Ten years of free-trado would not
only lift our ocean commerce to larger dim
ensions than it has ever known, but make

Washington, June 23, 1879.
A matter of great importance has been
brought to the attention of the committee
on military affairs of the house, and will
be cmboddiod in a resolution at this or
early in the next aession. It appears by
the testimony of military men and experts
that while our private manufacturers of
arms and ordaanco are selling improved
instruments of war to foreign nations to
use In emergencies ngainst us, our array and
navy are atill using inferior material only
became it Is manufactured by tho govern
ment, and thoso who control it are opposed
to change, General Gilmore of tho array,
ami Chief Engineer King, of the navy,
have recently called public attention to tho
fact that our sen coasts aro practically de
fenceless against tho heavily armed and
armored hip of Europe-, while the condi
tion of our nuvy is ettmlly deplorable.
Tho heaviest tfunn niountod at our forts aro
13 Inch mnnntli Imros these have a range
of about 4 mllcn and throw a projectilo
weighing . 430 pounds. - The Italian
government possrw ono hundred
NEW SERIES NO. 314.
ton guns made by Sir William Armstrong 1
n Knrrltinn ftr thai if.n
throw a projectile weighing 2300 pounds
9 miles. Such a weapon could sink any
ship in our navy and demolish any of our
forts on the sea board, that at a long range
where it would be impossible for our guns
to inflict the slightest injury in reply. In
England the plant necessary to make a 100
ton gun has been prepared. In View of
these facta it is clear that in event of war
our commerce would be rapidly destroyed,'
our ports blockaded, and our great cities on
the sea cast be placed under contribution.
There are over $2,000,000,000 worth of
property on our coasts says Gen. Gillmorc,
that would be in easy range of hostile fleets.
The neglect of Congress to provide the
greatly needed armamen cannot be consid
ered less than criminal, for wo are liable at
any time to bo suddenly plunged into a war
with 6ome foreign nation possessing power
ful ordnance, from which ' we could
not fail to retreat with losses of national
honor and reputation and tremendous
pecuniary damage, simply because our sea-
coast 8nd naval vessels were unprovided
with suitable heavy guns. It should bo
remembered that the work of procuring
these guns cannot be left until there i im
mediate dunger of hostilities, as to make a
single gun, such as a twelve inch rifle is a
work requiring months, and also extensive
plant and skilled labor which cannot bc-
procured readily, Another fact well
known to frontiersmen is that the Indians
have better rifles than our soldiers have to
fight with because red tape prevents our
soldiers from being provided with the
latest improvements used by private man
ufacturers. Among the many plans proposed by the
majority in congress for overcoming the
objections of the executive and accomplish
ing as much towards their own purpose as
possible, the more plausible one is that for
passing a bill for the judicial expenses
with only the jury test oath repeal attach
ed, and the appropriation for U. S. marshals
omitted, but to be embodied
in a seperate bill. The first of course
the president will sign as he is in favor of
the repeal of the test oath. The second
will contain a prohibition of payment for
U. S. deputy marshals for election purposes
and the Democrats, or a large majority of
them declare that having provided for the
courts, and every branch of the service, if
tne premuenr vi-ioes m, ,.,
S. marshal appropriation may fail. This is
probably the "last ditch," and I believe the
Democrats will stick to it. I believe also
that the president will not call congress to
gether again merely because of the failure
to appropriate money for the marshals.
Some cmbarassment might ensue in certain
cases, but it could not be great until con
gress meets again.
There can be no mistaking the fact that
late events have alienated the president and
his southern Democratic friends, many of
whom have had a high regard for him.
They declare that now he is fairly identified
with the stalwart Republicans ami they
have no more hope ot him.
The ''woman's friend'' is what Dr. Bull'a
Baltimore Pills may well Ixs termed, for
every woman that has onced used them will
not be without them.
