We feel convinced that our readers would not thank us for giving them this lengthy docu- j ment in full in our columns, and therefore we j furnish only a synopsis: The regulav force of the army, consisting ofj eight regiments of infantry, four of artillery, | and two of dragoons, is under the command ofj the major general of the army. Its disposi- j tion, condition, and movements, are detailed at length in the report. Fort Kent, in the Madawaska settlements, j lie has had occupied. A military post has been established at Cop- ! per Harbor, on the extremity of the peninsula ! which juts out far into Lake Superior from the j middle of its southern shore. Besides giving ; protection to the Indians and miners, and pre- ' serving order in a new settlement of such a j mixed population, it forms one point in the new J cordon, which the general extension of our set- j tlements and the enlargement of our territories j by Indian treaties are about tendering necessa- | ry to be established in accordance w'th the po- j L licy which has heretofore been adopted on our j i north western frontier. With a view to that j policy, and to preserve the military posts alrua- ! ■dy established upon our lake frontier, he re- | oommends the appropriation of funds to renew 1 the buildings of Fort Gratiot, commanding the j straits between Lake Huron and Lake St. Clair, and of Fort Brady at the Falls of St. Mary, i upon the outlet of Lake Superior, originally constructed in haste and of slight and perisha ble materials. The remounting of the second regiment of ■dragoons will enlarge the very best force for military service in the prairies—an indispensa ble duty now devolving on the government. Without destroying the military departments, as established by a general order of the 12th day of July, 1842, and at the samo time preserving The command and the control of the major ge neral, commanding in chief, over the forces of the line, ho has reinstated the two geographi cal divisions of the army. The prevalence of tranquility in Florida has caused the withdrawal of the troops thence, and the humane removal of the few remaining Seminoles is likely to be hastened by the sug gestion of tho Executive to the General Com manding in that territory. In regard to the erection of barracks for sol diers in any situations, some suggestions are made, and Congress recommended to make ap propriation therefor, especially on the sea board. There is also a recommendation in fa vor of single iron bedsteads for tho soldiers, instead of the double wooden one; and the es tablishment of schools and places of religious worship at all our permanent fortifications. There are now four companies of horse or light field artillery, all of which are well drill ed, yet defective in organization. The enlist ment of a few additional men in this branch ■of the servico is required The Secretary visited the military academy at West Point during the examination, and unites his commendation of this institution to the many which have been so repeatedly urged upon it by his predecessors. He argues at considerable length in its favor, as an institu tion of republican tendency, and urges that a .joint committee of Congress be appointed to in spect it, or that the authority be restored to ap point an annnal board of visitors. The Secretary says he would encourage re signations by officers of the army, after twenty five years 1 service, with a pension in the shape of a section of public land, and two years 1 fur lough on full pay, with the condition, should he avail himself of this privilege, that his com mission be vacated at tho termination of his furlough; and he suggests the propriety of pas sing a law to that effect. He also suggests the enactment of a law, granting to officers of the line the same pay, emoluments and allowances now given to olficeis of the same grade of the staff corps in which those officers of the line may be detailed for service. [The propriety of fully completing the forti fications of the country is strongly urged. * Whilst Fort McHenry,—a work of" inferior force, —is available to resist a paiticular kind of hostile attack upon Baltimore, it forms the only defeneo by fortification to that important city. The true defence and safety of Baltimore will, it is believed, be found in the erection of permanent works on Point Flats, about ten miles below tho city. Let the proposed fort upon those flats bo completed, and tho in ' habitants of that city will no longer have occa sion toapproheud a second battle at North Point. The resumption of tho work upon Fort Del aware, at the Pea Patch, is anxiously desired 4 by all those interested in the commerce and the country of the Delaware, in the defence of Phil adelphia, Wilmington and Newcastle, of the Delaware and Chesapeake Canal, and of the Baltimore and Philadelphia Railroad. Tho sum of $20,000, re-appropriated at the last ses sion of Congress, if it can be rendof. d availa ble, would be sufficient for this important ob ject for the ensuing year; and it rests ♦ ith Con gress to say whether th#Government A mil con- tinue satisfied with the presumption of 'tie in ■ttts favor, and will remove the restriction upon expenditure of the appropriation. The recommendation is renewed to purchase a site for a Fort on Staten Island, N. Y., imme diately opposite Fort Hamilton, and to either sell or exchango Fort Gansevoort, rendered useless by the growth of New York city. Tho renewal of tho works at the Rip Raps is recom mended; and it is thought that something ought to be done in the way of fortification south of Cape Hatteras, at some point on tho southern shore of Georgia; also on the Florida Reef. In formation received from an off.cor sent to pro cure it, leads to the opinion that the first work should be constructed either at the harbor of Key West or the Tortngas Rock. AND BALTIMORE DAILY CLIPPER. PRINTED AND PUBLISHED EVERY MORNING, BY BOLL <fe TOTTLK, No. 13* BALTIMORE STREET, BALTIMORE, Md. Either of these points, if its fortifications shall be completed, will be of vast advantage in a contest with a naval power, if our own na val force could keep command of the gulf'.— But whilst this latter was problematical, it would only have been building a Malta, or erecting a Gibraltar, to add to the superiority of an enemy, who, if master of the gulf, would easily starve the most devoted garrison, placed on a small and barren island, into capitulation. If our naval force on the gulf should only be furnished from the seaports on the Atlantic, (which, for a long time, was admitted to be the case,) such, in fact, notwithstanding the ac knowledged prowess and devotion of that na tional arm of defence, would inevitably have been the destiny of a garrison on tho Dry Tor tngas. A report from this department to the executive, on the sth December, 1840, was the first official announcement that our goverrnent had discovered its possession of other elements of naval power. Its existence had attracted your attention, and has since been recognised by Congress in the establishment of a naval de pot at Memphis, with the wise forecast to bring into harmonious action with the permanent for tifications for tho defence of the gulf coast, the j maritime resources of tho great west and south-1 west. It cannot any longer be doubted that we j can, at will, by the union of the work with this new succor from the Mississip pi, become the strongest naval power on the j Gulf of Mexico, which is, emphatically, "OUR ! OWN SEA. 1 ' This being conceded, a strong for- j tification, placed well in advance, so as to over- j look, not only tho vessels navigating the gulf, j but every one doubling Cape San Antonio, j would be the most powerful auxiliary to the J steam force which we would have afloat in the j gulf. With the small appropriation of $50,000 lor commencing this work, hut little could have been done towards its actual construction. A million of dollars would be a moderate ex penditure for such fortifications as we should have on this Reef. The important positions on the shores of the gulf having been secured, or nearly so, there no longer exists any cause which should lead to a further delay in the commencement of a work of a class fully com mensurate with the wishes of all those (but lit tle, indeed, short of the whole people of the United Slates,) who are interested in the com merce of the Gulf of Mexico. Depots of coal for armed steamres employed in the Gulf of Mexico, are recommended; as is the fortification of Dauphin Island, j The Secretary recommends the organization j of a company of sappers and miners, and the | establishment of a national foundry for the j manufacture of model guns, for testing mate j rials, &c. He mentions that the revolution ! ary pensions due in September last were un paid for the want of appropriations—states that sites for Marine Hospitals have been se j lected in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Kentucky— j $25,000 being required for the erection of I buildings at each place. He deems a modifica tion of the existing law creating the Commis sary General of Subsistence, necessary, so as to authqfize purchases in open market, or by contract, as may ho considered most expedient, &c.—recommends tho sale of the mineral lands j of the United States as other public lands; and j thinks that such an arrangement would bo j highly advantageous. The improvements of j the western rivers and harbors have been vigo j rously prosecuted during the present year, by which the perils of navigation have been great- Ily diminished. The difficulty of removing the j Red River Raft, is noticed, and he recom mends the placing in the hands of the proper | bureau reasonable sums to be annually cxpend ]ed on that object. The transfer of the light* j house system to the bureau of topographical j engineers is recommended. He notices the ex* j ploration of our territory west of the Rocky | Mountains, by Lieut. Fremont; hopes to bo j able to lay the report of that officer before j Congress during the present session; and do ; clares himself lirvorable to the occupation of j that territory. We make the following quota tions from tho report: The immediate valleys of tiie head streams of the Arkansas, tho Platte, and the Yellow Stone rivers, have much rich and valuable land. The Platte, or Nebraska, being the central stream leading into, or from, tho great South Pass, would very properly furnish a name to the territory, which I propose suggesting to be erected into a territorial government in connec tion with, and preliminary to, the extension in that direction of our military posts. I would confine the Nebraska Territory to our undispu ted ])ossessions on this side of tho Rocky Moun tains. Its boundary line would commence at the mouth of the Kanzas, and run up the Mis souri river to the mouth of the Running-water river, and would pursue that stream to the head of its northern branch, and thence duo West to the Wind-river chain. From this point, turning southward, tho line would con tinue along the Wind-river range, and the main chain of tho Rocky Mountains, to the head of the Arkansas; and following that stream to the mouth of the Pawnee Fork, would pass by tho heads of tho Neosho and Os ago rivers, again to the mouth of the Kansas. The eastern section of the region embraced by these boundaries from the Missouri river westward for two hundred and fifty miles, is of great agricultural beauty and facilities, thickly limbered on the numerous tributaries of tho Kanzas, Osage and Neosha rivers, and in fer tility equal to the best land in Missouri. From the limit of this fertile portion, westward for a spaco of four hundred miles, the country is en tirely covered with ricli grasses, which improve in quantity and quality up to the snow of tho mountains. The limits of this territory include the ex treme head of navigation of the Arkansas, all the good lines of communication with Califor nia, the road from our frontier to tho Mexican boundary and Santa Fe, and also an excellent and more direct pass to Oregon, discovered by recent exploration, about one hundred and fifty miles southward of the great South Pass. Although the number of inhabitants engaged in agricultural and other pursuits within those j limits do not afford an amount of population at all adequate, at present, to the formation of a full and complete territorial government, yet such an inchoate or preliminary organization might be now adopted as would be necessary to extend the control and authority of the general government, and to throw its protection around our omigrants to Oiegon in their passage through this country. A territorial organization of the country, and a military force placed on the very sunun l ' whence flow all tho groat streams of the N- rih j American continent, either into the Gulf of; SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 7, 1844. Mexico, or tho Pacific Ocean, would no longer leave our title to the Oregon Territory a bar ren or untenable claim. Its possession and oc cupancy would thenceforth not depend upon the naval superiority on the Pacific Ocean. Troops and supplies from the project! d Ne braska Territory would be able to contend for its possession with any force coming from the sea. Natural obstructions in the navigation of tho Columbia river would enable settlements gradually to approach the coast, in defiance (if it should come to that) of any navy in the world. The time, indeed, might not be dis tant, when these very settlements would supply all the elements which might bo needed, of na val strength, to give us our natural and proper positiolf on the Pacific Ocean. In carrying out these views, I would recommend an appropria tion of SIOO,OOO for erecting the military posts from the Missouri river to the Rocky Moun tains. Eighty-nine thousand two hundred and eigh ty Indians have been transferred by the United States west of the Mississippi; making the whole Indian population west of tiie river, and contiguous to tho United States 254,092; inde pendent of the numerous wandering tribes, whoso numbers cannot be ascertained. sl,- 193,629 will be required by the Indian Bureau for various objects. The Secretary considers the improvement in some of the tribes so ra pid and extensive, that lie suggests the propri-1 oty of incorporating them with ourselves, and ! extending to thorn the blessings of our iristitu-j tions; and this idea lie enforces at some length. I He refers to tho disagreements between the different bands of the Cherokee Indians, and has appointed threo agents to inquire into the causes of dicontent, Sue.—and he concludes by recommending the erection of additional build-1 ings, for the safety of the records of the de- ! partment, and the more convenient despatch ! of business. [For the American Republican.] TEMPERANCE—MARION SOCIETY—SPEECH ] OF MR. JOHN HAWKINS, THE CELEBRATED TEMPERANCE LECTURER. I have noticed fori some time past, and with regret, that the' efforts which were formerly made by many So- 1 cieties to push on the blessed cause of Temper- ! ance, have been suffered to flag, and that less j interest is now manifested by the citizens ofj Baltimore in the success of this great and en-1 nobling enterprise. Surely this ought not lo jbo said of us, and ought not so to be. The ! I Marion Society, a meeting of which we at- i j tended on Wednesday evening, deserve great i credit for their efficient zeal and honest deter mination to push ahead, and if seconded by | the combined efforts of the other associations j in the city, will no doubt do much, during the j present winter, towards diffusing life and ani j mation amongst the friends of Temperance, and stir them up to renewed exertion. I have heard before of tho "great reformed," as Mr. Hawkins has beon termed, but having never listened to an address from him, I was induced to attend the meeting above-mentioned. Mr. 11. appears to have taken hold of the enter prise in the only true and proper spirit, by j which wo may hope to make reform permanent, and that is, in the spirit of the philanthropist and Christian. His address proved him, to my mind, to have at heart, and deeply too, the re formation of the unhappy and disgraced ine briate, and the comfort and prosperity of his suffering family. The avowal of his condition and the bodily and mental suffering which in temperance once subjected him to, enlisted the deep sympathies of his audience, and few who listened to his recital of suoh plain and unvar nished statements, —for all who knew any thing of tho evils of intemperance readily recognized thorn as vivid and graphic J'ucts, —could restrain their tears. I look upon Mr. Hawkins as an eloquent and practical advocate in the great cause which he has espoused, and as a man calculated to do a thousand times more good j than all the fine-spun and nicely-worded lec ! turos on intemperance that could be written. Mr. Hawkins, I have been told, intends extend ing the field of his labor to the great West— and sincerely 1 hope, that wherever he may proclaim tho objects of his glorious mission, his exertions may be crowned with success, and his spiiit cheered with the evidences of Divine approval.

In the Supreme Court, yesterday, Reverdy Johnson, Esq., as counsel for Andrew Aldridge and others, plaintiffs in error, concluded his very able address to tho Court, on tho interest ing case which has been under consideration and argument sinco the opening of the Court, i This being the day appointed for the hearing of motions, tho business in the Supreme Court was not of an interesting character. The Court will not, as I am informed, continue their ! silting on Saturdays. It is expected the Court j will remain in session until March. | The Circuit Court for the County of Wash ington, which was adjourned until this day, j was again adjourned by tho Hon. Judge Mor j sell, until next Tuesday. The Hon. Chief Judgo Cranch is still presiding in the Circuit Court for Alexandria county, where the pro tracted and important will case, which has oc cupied so much time, remains yet unfinished. It is supposed by some of the learned counsel who practice in our Circuit Court, that as Judge Tluuston still continues sick, and as many of tho lawyers will have to attend tho Suproine Court, there will bo a postponement of all the cases in the Circuit Court until the March term. It is supposed, moreover, that there will be an alteration in tiie time of holding the Circuit Court, so as to avoid the present colli sion with the Supreme Court. The Capitol is quite dull -to-day, in conse qucnco of the adjournment in both branches of Congress until next Monday. The Swiss Bell Ringers attracted another crowded and fashionable audience last night, . the Washington Assembly Room. To-night another crowded house is confidently expected. Every one who has hoard these wonderful per formances is much delighted with them. METROPOLIS. FROM THE BRITISH WEST INDIES.

We loam from the New Orleans papers that the English frigate Spaitan, Capt. Elliott, arrived at the Southwest Pass on the 26th ult., from Vera Cruz, bringing important despatches for the English Government as well a3 for our own- The Bee says the affairs of Mexico begin to wear a portentous aspect. An insurrection has broken out at Gandalaxara, Guanajuato and Sari Luis, sufficiently serious to require the personal attention of Santa Ana. The move ment was headed by Gen Pateotes, who calls the President to an an account for the enormous sums of money expended during his adminis tration. Our information on this subject is de rived from a letter dated Mexico, the 16th No vernber, from a highly respectable and unques tionable source. Santa Ana had raised an ar my of 10,000 men, and proceeded towards Guadalaxara, for the purpose of quelling the sedition. It is rumored likewise that two ad joining provinces had joined the movement, but the last mail which had reached the city of Mexico failed to corroborate this intelligence. It would appear, says the Picayune, from such of the published correspodence as we have seen in the Dihrio, that on the 31st ult. Governor Shannon addressed a letter to the Mexican Government, protesting against the proposed invasion of Texas by Mexico, and especially against the manner in which the in vasion was to be made. To this the Ministet of Foreign Affairs replied—(we have not seen his communication) —denying the right of the United States or any foreign government to interfere in the internal affairs of the republic. Gov. Shannon, in answer, characterizes the Secretary's letter as being grossly offonsive, in asmuch as it charges the United States, its government and people, With falsehood, trick ery, intrigue and designs of the most dishonor able character. Gov. Shannon alleges that the note of the Secretary is so gross in its cha racter, so offensive, that he can only demand that it be at once withdrawn. The Mexican Minister replies with the ut most warmth. lie treats the earlier part of Gov. Shannon's correspondence as being super cilious and offensive, justifies all that ho has himself written, protests that the Mexican government has done, and is doing, all that it | can to prevent a rupture with the United | Statos, but that affuim have roached such a I crisis that it is necessary for his government to 1 speak out plainly before the world. He therc i fore declines to withdraw the note. FIRE AT DEXTER, MICHIGAN. A letter of 25th Nov., from Dexter, to the Detroit Free I Press, says:—"Yesterday, about 1 o'clock, a ! fire broke out in a cabinet shop, occupied by ! Henry Vincle, and swept off all the buildings . on that side of the street for several rods.— Seven stores besides cabinet shops, shoe shops, ! tin shops, &c., were swept by the board in less | than 1 1-2 hours. But veiy little of either | goods or houses were insured; the loss cannot i be estimated clearly by either owners or citi | zens. The stores occupied by Messrs. D. C. . Whitwood, Hays, Swift, Shepard, and others : were consumed, sustaining a great loss." FATAL ACCIDENT. TWO men named Mar : tin and Miller, were killed, and three others were severely injured, at Shippingport, Ky., ■ on Saturday evening last, by the falling of | Capt. Irwin's new boat, which they wero gct | ting ready for launching. Baker, Miller, and the boy, who wero injured during the demo- I cratic celebration at Louisville, last week, have since died.
