, fully to -weigh . the costs in a case of
. such urgency it would be shown that
tho additional expense would be campar
tirely light. .-With the increase of the
numerical force of the army, should I
think,' be combined, eertaiu measures of
: reform in its organio arrangements and
administration. J. he present organiza
tion is the result of partial legislation
directed to special objects and interests
and the laws regulating ra k and com
mand, having been adopted manyyeais
- ' ago trom the Jbritish code are not al
- ways -applicable to our service, it is
not surprising therefore that the system
' -should be deficient in the symetry and
. simplicity fl-rseatial to toe harmonious
ororkiftg of -its several parts and require
a careful revisor. The present organi-.-..'
zation by maintaining large - staff - corps
or departments separates many officers
from that close connection with troops
and these active in duty in the field
. which are deemed requisite to "qualify
m for tbe varied responsibilities of
uigh command. Were the duties of the
army staff mainly desparaged the officers
-intaclied from their regiments, it is be
lieved that the special service would be

line and instruction of the army improv;

ing the just pride of men who, by past
. services, have established a claim to
.."high cooslslration. - In again comincnd
ini''E!?3mrcsur9 to the favorable con-
ieratioa of Congress, I would suggest
that the power of placing offioers on the
retired list Delimited to one year. The
practical operation of the measure would
thus be tested, and, if after the lapse of
years there should. . be occasion to re
verse the provision it can be produced
with any improvements which experience
4nay indicate. ' ... ..
The present organization of the artil
lery into regiments is liable to. objec
. tions. The service, of artillery is that
of batteries and an organization of bat
teries into a corpse of artillery would be
more consistent with the nature of their
duties. A large part of the troops now
called artillery are and have been on
duty as infantry, The. distinction be
tween the two arms being merely notnl
of sympathy and sorrow throughout the
cou-itry. It may well be doubtful
wether all these calamitous - events are
wholly attributable to the necessary and
inevitable dangers of the sea, - - The mer
chants, mariners and ship-builders of the
United States are, it its true, unsurpas
sed in far-reaching enterprise, skill, in
telligence and courage by any others in
the world, but v.ith the increasing am
ount of our commercial tounase iu the
aggregate aud the larger size and im
proved equipments of the ships now con
structed, a deficiency in the su, ply of
reliable seaman begins to be very seri
ously felt. The inconvenience may per
haps bo met in part by due regulation
for the introduction into our merchant
ships of indented apprentices. It would
afford useful and eligible occupation "to
numerous young men ; would have a
tendency to raise the character of sea
men as a class and it is deserving of seri
ous reflections whether it may not be
desirable to revise the existing laws for
the maintenance of discif.lmu at sea,
upon, which the security of life and pro
perty on tbe oceau must to so great ex
tent depend. ' ,
Although much attcutioa Las already
been giveu by Congress to the proper
construction and arrangement of steam
vessels and all passenger ships, still it is
believed that the achievements ofscienCo
and mechanical skill in this direction
have not been exhausted. No good
reason exists for the marked distinction
which appears upon our statute between
the laws for protecting life and proper
ty at sea and those for protecting them
on land. In most of the States severe
penalties are provided to punish conduc
tors of trains, engineers and - others em
ployed in tbe transportation of persons
by railway or by steamboats on rivers,
why should not the same principle be
applied to acta of insubordination, cow
ardice or other misconduct on the part
f i 3 1
oi masters ana mariners, producing in
jury or death, to passengers ou the high
seas, beyond' the jurisdiction of any
State aud where such delinquencies can
not be reached only by the power of
Congress. The whole sabject is earnest
ly commended to your consideration.
. The report of the Post Master Gen
eral to which you aro referred, for many
interesting details' ia relation to this
important and rapidly entending branch
of the public service, shows that the ex
penditure of the year, ending Juue 30th,
1854, including $33,483 of balance' due
to foreign offices amounted to $3,61 0,907.
The gross receipts during the same
period amounted to $6,935,580, exhibit
ing an expenditure of over $1,759,321
aud a diminution of deficiency as -compared
with last year, of $360,756. The
income of the revenue to the department,
forj the year ending June 30th 1 854 over
tL-jB3eUing year was $970,39 No
proportMMtte increase however, can be

would seem to render proper and de

ciple there asserted, with regard to
naL This nominal artillery in our service the limitation of the pover of Congress
is entirely disproportionate to the whole
, force rnd greater than the wants of the
country demand. -1" therefore commend
the discontinuance of a distinction which
-has no foundation in either the arms used
-or the the character of the service expec
ted to be performed. . Connected with
. the proposition for the increase of the
Army I have presented these suggestions
with regard to certain measures of re
form as - the complement . of a system
which would produce the happiest, re-
- .suits from a given expenditure and
which I hope may retract the efy at
tention and be deemed worthy of the ap
proval of Congress.
The i rrrmiiTaenrhtinn of the Secretary
of the ifflvy, having reference to more
ample provisions for the discipline and
treneral improvement in the character of
seamen, and for the re-organizatioa and
cradual increase of tbe navy, I deem
. eminently worthy your favorable conci
deration. The principles which have
controled our : policy in relation to the
permanent military force by sea aud
- land, are sound, and consistaut with the
theory of our system, and should by no
means be disregarded. - iut apply the
force to the objects particularly set forth
in the preceding part of this message.
We should not overlook the present
magnitude and prospective adventition
cf our commercial marine, nor fail k
- give due weight to the fact that, besides
the 2,000 miles of Atlantic seaboard, we
Lava now "a Pacific coast, extending
from Mexico to the BritUh Provinces in
the north, teeming with wealth and en
erprise, and demanding the . constant
esence of ships of war. The angmen
- tation of the navy has not kept pace
with the duties properly and profitably
assigned to it in time of peace ; and it is
inadequate for the large field of its oper
ation not merely in the-present, but
still mee In jthe progressively increaa-,
I entertain no doubt; but in its appli
cation, it is not enough that the value
of lands in a particular locality may
not be enhanced; that in fact a larger
amount of money may probably be re
ceived in a given time for alternate sec
tions, than could have been realized, for
all the sections, without the impulse and
influence of the proposed improvements.
A prudent proprietor looks beyoud
limited sections of his domain, beyond
present resu'ts to the ultimate effects
which a particular line of policy is likely
to produce upon all his possessions -and
interests. The government, which is the
trustee it tne matter tor tne people in
the States, is bound to ttiko the same
wise and comprehensive views. Prior
to aud during the last session of Con
gress upwards of thirty millions acres of
laud were withdrawn from public sale
with a view to applications for grants
of this character pending before Con
gress. A caretui review oi the whole
subject led me to direct that all such or
ders be abrogated and the lands restor
ed to market, and instructions were im
mediately given, to that effect. The ap
plications at last session contemplated
the -construction of more than 5000
miles of road, and grants to the amount
of more than twenty millions of acres of
the public domain. Even admitting the
right on the part of Congrcsato be un
questionable, it is quite clear that tee
proposed grants should be productive of
rood and not evtl.
The different projects are confined at present to
eleven StaUs of the Union, and one Teri
to ry. Tbe reasons assigned for the grants snow that
it is proposed to put tne works speedily in process
ol construction. When we reflect that since the
commencement of the construction of Hallways in
the United Stales, stimulated as they have been by
the large dividensrealized from tbe early works
over the great through fares between tbe most im
portant points of commerce, and population en
couraged by state legislation, and pressed forward
United States requires modification, and
certain reforms in tbe manner of. con
ducting tho legal business of the govern
ment, are also much needed, but as
have, addressed . you on . both of these
subjects at length before, I have only
to call your attention to the suggestion
made in my former recommendation in
relation to suitable provisions for various
objects of deep interest to the Juhabi
tauts of the District- of Columbia, are
renewed. i'-Al any of these objects par
take largely of a national character, and
are independent of their relation to tbe
prosperity of the only considerable or
ganized community in the Union, entire

such subjects as appear to mo' to be of
particular interest or importance and

we extract as follows :
"Exoerlment bas demonstrated that the puriying
