From the Uultlmore Americta. - Among tho articles of tho American Quarterly Review for June, of which we s.,0e vcstcrday, is an excellent ono on "Our JT A - c,i Navy. After reviewing, and justly con. acmning tne niggaraiy poncy nercroiore pursued by US in regard to the Navy, the in telligent writer proceeds to make an estimate f , armament to be kept in com. . . ' . . - j l.";"" no fuwer than seven maritine nations which maintain in commission a navy superior to our own. These arc England, Fiance, Russia, Turkey, Holland, Sweden, and Egypt. Such arc however our naval re- sources that only the two first could cope with us in the event of a struggle. I he Navies of England and France are there, fore made the basis of what ou is ought to bo. m.. KT I l r ! jl rNuvy oi rngiuuu in commission lor last year amounted to fourteen ships of tho line, fifteen frigates, titty-ono sloops. Twenty Five brigs and NChooncrs, ten sur vcying vessels and twenty armed steam vessels. VV ithin two years she can have at sea six times the above force. Tin; Navy of Franco in commission, is ten ships of the line, thirteen frigates, and eighty-eight smaller vessels, capable with in two years of being quadrupled. Uur lavy in commission will n mount, with the appropriations lor its increaso already voted in Congress, to two ships of the line, seven frigates, iouitecn sloops, and seven smaller vessels. inn year mis lorco might bo extended to rlcvcn ships of the line, eighteen frigates, fifteen sloops, and ten smaller vessels. Here wc see how great is the disparity between our available naval force and that of England and France. There is no cor- responding disparity between tho relative amounts of property needing protection on hQ h; . gcas Tho property of England float mav bo estimated at from five to six hundred millions of dollars ; that of Trance, in her own bottoms, at less than three hun drcd millions; nnd that of the United States at moro than four hundred millions. Lng land has ono hundred and sixty. five thou sand seamen ; France claims sixty-six thou sand, and wo have ono hundred thousand. Tho amount of force that wo ought to havo is thus described by tho writer in tho American Quarterly; We think, then, with a view to our re- sources and tho existing armaments of other One half of this force should be in condition to sail within a year, and of tho other half, ono portion might remain constructed on the stocks and tho other in frames ready for setting up. As a nucleus to prepare officers, and to somo extent crews, for theso vessels. gjx ships of tho line, with twice that number of frigates, and sloops and smaller vessels .

Of these ships, three of tho lino mirht be assigned to tho Mediterranean station, two to tho Pacific ocean, where wo have in tcrcsts of great valuo at stake, and one to tho Hrazihan station. Tho friirates and smaller vessels should bo distributed between the stations above named, and the East and West India stations, where, for reasons principally connected with tho climate, they ' - 1 Ml. a 1 may uo moro cincicni and useful man largo ships.

Tho languages of most men in tho intercourse of the civilized world aro unokcn on its shores, and the means and incentives to acquire tham ore aliko imparted to tho officers of our Ships which visit them. Tho shores of tho Mtedi tcrrancan. too, have been the scenes of an. I cient times, and our 'oung officers, while learning meir proiession in circumnaviga ting its entire extent, cannot fail to havo their minds improved, and their genius fired, by visiting a thousand sites crowned by tho pure monuments of classic ages and con. sccratcd by associations.

The trees of primeval forests have not, like modern trees, undergone de. cay yielding back their elements to the earth and atmosphere, by which they were nourished, but, treasured up in subterranean storehouses, havo been transformed into enduring beds of coal, which, to men in these latter ages, have become tho resour. ccs of heat, and light, and wealth.

The Indiana were all mounted and the truil was ther-fora easily mistaken. Mrs. Johns saw eight Indians and one ngro the negro was naked except a wool lea flip ho wore. Sho iuw.no houses, and probably there were more than eight Indians, as ther would undoubtedly be very likely to loave soma with tho horses. It was now ascertain' that the Indians had taken five horses from Mr. En. bink, one from Mr. RatclofT, and three from Mr. Johns, whom they murdered, and also that our ptrty was off their trail. It was not possible to follow the trail of horses in the night, and thera foro our men encamped. E :rly in the morninjf they set out, and supposing the Indians turned from the left of the road, they Btruck into the woods in order to coma upon tho triil without losing tho tiino of retracing their steps to tho house whera Mr. Johns was burned. They struck the trail quite early and followed it with oil the speed possible. They found whora ths Indians stopped to take a lunch, as was supposed. They continued the pursuit to the haad of Black Creek, where, finding that the Indiana, having, as was known, six hours the start on the day ba. fore, had traveled in tha night, and th it too with great rapidity, as the trail showed. Our towns, men, with these who joined them, making 23 in number, cimetotho conclusion that further pur. suit would ba useless, and with disippointmsnt and regret, and reluctance, giva up tha pursuit; and it being near night on Fridiy, they turned for home and reached here to day. Tha Indians roda with all the spaed of thoir horses. Those they took wore among the boat in our county, and able to bear pushing. Our party had good horses and they pushed tham ia pursuit all that their speed and bottom would bear, but it was in vain. Tha enemy expected pursuit and therefore directed their rapid flight for tha nation, where it is supposed they arrived without stopping. It is presumed they mada for Payn's Tniria, we had hoped that this daring p irty would hava bean rash enough to attempt to drive cattla before tham. In that cise our men would hava push d ou till th?y overtook tham. l.ioae incli.ns cama in the same direction they , took on their rot urn. There were plain to be eon bore and there tha remnants of a trail, os. ecially in tha grass and by palmetto leavos Pith. erod in several pi ices whore they stopped and proDiDiy encampea. . It is thought they cimo in tan days or twe weeks ago Juring which tim? to th present they have bean lurking about Brandy Branch when Indians have several times been se:n. T.iey have undoubtedly spied oat tha whole soe. tion, and are now gone to report their intelligenes. taking with them tune stolen hones, and a wo man's scalp. It is true this party of Indiana were well mounted on fresh horses, but still tha issue of the pursuit shows how almost impossible it is to overtake them, in their retreat after com. mitling depredations. If they have a fw hours only tha st rt, they can raach tha Nation ia saf.ty and mock pursuit. In truth a good por. tion of tha movements of tha army (with soma bright exceptions) havo f.ued of otfxt through tardiness and through want of a suffieient num. erofgooJ spies. 1 aat these cursed butchorers, so bold as to coma within soven miles to commit thoir dapre. nations, should escape lrom so ready, rapid, and hot a pursuit, and that too, from man of known bravery and parscveranco, and determined at every haurd to overtake and chastise thorn, gives us great mortification and pain. They did all that men could do, except running, only 20 strong, and without food and forage, into the Na. tion atier them, which would hava bocn folly and ranhnoss. Upon tho arrival at Black Creek of the express sent to Mijor Pierce, ho immediately ordered out three companies in different direction, to cut otf their retreat. Ihe Indians undoubtedly passed near Kingsley'a Pond. We understand company went to that piss on I may evening. but saw neither Indians or their trail. The com. panics returned Frid ly night, without making njr uieuuvury. arj iniorinoa uiai on oatur. ay morning Juij. 1'ierca at the head of 50 men went again to strike, if possible, thoir trail, in consoauonco of the report of tha mail carrier frouv this place, who arrived Friday night. We pray that Al ij. riorca. to whom rreat- credit is due for his prompt and vigorous exertions to intarcept this banditti, may be ablo to full ia with them. A letter to the editor under dato of tho 10th inst., late at night, from a friend, a lioutenant. wlioia mettla lias been proved to be pure gold. tl.ua eloses : 1'no mail-carrier, for whoso fate we were nuito anxious, has arrived, and information re. ceivad from him has determined M jjor Pierce to set out in tho morning at tho hoad ol 50 man, tu scour the country in the direction of Santa-Fo and New river. Be assured that every exertion in tha power of man will be made, to capture or destroy those savages. If we ever strike the trail thay are ours." uod grant that the next intauigonca lrom that quarter may be, that this party of desperadoes is cut off; but the spaed of thoir flight fore as us to supposo that they have encapod, in spita of all the exertions made to ovcrtako and intercept thorn.
