THE DAILY DISPATCH
REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF
THE NAVY.
The Secretary of the Navy, in bringing to
the notice of the President and Congress the
subjects worthy their attention, reminds them
that many valuable suggestions of his piede
cessurs y-et t. a fueled on have lost none of their
interest.
The distribution of the navy into six squad
ron* has still been adhered to, and the term of
cruise remains at three years, except on the
coast of Africa, where it has been linited to
two. The term, however, is subject to an oc »
casiona! prolongation when the public interest
requires it.
The East India squadron has bee.n lately re
organized and placed undercommand of Com
modore Perry, and his force will consist of the
line-of battle ship Vermont, to be ready about
the Ist of Mareh next; the steam frigate Missis
sippi, his flag-ship; to be followed by the steain-
I'rigate Powhatan, detailed in place of the
Princeton, whose machinery has been found
imperfect. The corvette Macedonian, the
sloop-ofwar Vandalia, and the steamer Al
leghany, will compose the remainder of this
force. The storeships Supply and South
ampton are also attached to the East India
squadron.
The Pacific squadron will be put under com
mand of Cnpt. Dulanv.
Ths Af ican squadron will be placed under
the command of Commodore Levalette. The
Secretary suggests that the time has come
when the necessity of continuing this squadron
may be considered.
On the coast of Brazil, Captain Salter
will, in the spring, relieve Commodore Mc-
Keever.
The Mediterranean squadron, in command
of Comm. String'mim, will probably hereaf
ter be reinforced by either the Princeton or Sa
ranac. This squadron has been conspicuously
engaged, and the zeal with which it has per
formed ita duty is commended.
The Home squadron, under command of
Commodore Newton, consists of the flag-ship,
the irigatc Columbia, the steamers Saranac
and Fulton, and the sloops-of-war Albany and
Cyane.
The Secretary adverts to the expedition for
the purpose of establishing relations of amity
and commerce with the empire of Japan, and
to the expedition for the exploration and survey
of the China seas, the Northern Pacific, and
Behrign's straits. lie anticipates important re
sults from both these expeditions. The latter
is placed under the command of Commander
Ringgold, distinguished for his participation
in a former expedition; and the sloop-of war
Vincenneß, the propeller John Hancock, and
the brig Porpoise have been detailed lor the
purpose.
With the view of contributing to the fulfil
ment of the high expectations which the coun
try has formed of the navy, the Secretary has
also set on foot t .vo other expeditions, from
whicii great good is anticipated. These are
the Aliican expedition, under Commander
Lynch, and the expedition for the purpose of
exploring the river La Plata and its tributaries,
which will be placed under the command of
Lieutenant Page.
In connexion with these, the Secretary re
fers to the return of Lieutenant Herndon, to
whom was consigned, in conjunction with
Passed Midshipman (now Lieutenant) Gib
bon, an exploration of the valley of the riv
er Amazon and its tributaries. Lieutenant
Herndon has collected valuable statistics in
relation to the country, and a report of his
journey is in course of preparation. Lieute
nant Gibbon has not yet arrived, but when be
returns the facts gathered in his loute will
also be submitted.
The services of Lieutenants Lee and Ber
ry man in ascertaining the position ol dange
rous rocks between the United States and Eu
rope tire noticed.
The expedition in seatch of Sir John Frank
lin, about to be organized under the auspices
of Messrs. Grinnell and Peabody, will furnish
occasion for valuable scientific observation;
and the Secretary thinks he has done no more
than justice to a meritorious officer in acced
ing to the request of Lady FrankliP, by per
mitting Dr. Kane to accompany the expedi
tion. If additional means should be necessa
ry for his scientifie researches, the subject is
commended to the attention of Congress.
Of the Naval Academy at Annapolis the
Secretary gives his views at some length. As
the number ot those who can be admitted to
the school under the present system is neces
sarily small, and as the school is liable to
some other oljections, he propose a fundamen
tal change in its structure, and recommends
that the academy should be composed exclu
sively of cadets, or young men who are re
ceived as candidates fcr admission to the navy.
By the arrangement which he proposes,
Congress would be called on to nominate fifty
seven candidates every year, and the Presi
dent five, beside the appointuiedt to vacancies
arising out of failure to pass preliminary ex
aminations. Various other suggestions, io
this connexion, are offered in regard to the
classification of midshipmen, passed midship
men, and masters# und the establishment of a
hydrographical corps. The yearly graduates
ol the academy will, according to this system,
be assigned to the two branches of service de
scribed—namely, the regular naval service
and that of the hydrographical corps. Tne
Secretary enters inio very explicit details of
the proposed system, and states succinctly the
reasons which call for its adoption.
Praise is awarded to Commander Stribhng,
who has charge of the institutions, and to the
officers, professors, and assistants under his
command for the assiduity ana intelligence
with which they have performed their du
, e 6n the subjeet of the organization and dis
cipline of seamen, the Secretary dwells at
length. The abolition of eorporal punishment
without provision for a suitable substitute, has
been followed by unsatisfactory results, and
the most frequent complaints against the abo
lition of corporal punishment are made by
seamen themselves. Looking at this state of
things, the Secretarv submits the outlines of a
of enlistment, by wh ch the sailor,
after suitable probation, shall be permanently
attached to the navy of the United States,
receiving an additional dolhr a month for
everv successive five years' service, the right
to this additional pay being liable to forfeiture
by his resignation or being struck off the list,
which i» only to bo done by order of the Sec
retary of the Navy or by sentence of a conrt
niaitial: the registei *d seamen to be exempt
from anv corporal or other punishment.
The Secretary recommends an increase of
the naval establishment of the United States,
and especially invites attention to the recom
mendation ol the Bureau of Construction that
three first class screwpropeller frigate* and
the same number of propeller sloops of war
be provided for. There is an abundance of
timber irrthe nsvy yards. In connexion with
this subi-'ct, fie represents the necessity ot
establishing ooe or more factories for the con
struction of machinery for the largest class of
steamers.
It is also necessary to increase the number
of aeamer, and to increase their wag*«.
Authority Is asked for the nppolntment of
twenty assistant surgeons, with a correspond
ing promotion of those already in servies.
The marine corps and the inadequacy of ill
PRICE ONE CENT.
numbers are next rtferred to.
Additional pursers are needed.
The Secretary renews the recommendations
heretofore made in regard to a retired lijnaod
states his concurrence in the views o lf his 'pre
decessor as to the propriety of recognising the
'tie of commodore and of creatin* at least
two rear admirals. °
The reports of the various bureaus an com
mended to the attention of Congress Tb»
Secretsry concurs in the opinion that the Na
val Asylum should be removed from Philadel
phia to Annapolis or Norfolk.
The Naval Observatory ia referred to with
appro'iation.
The return of Lieut. Gilliss with rich con
tnbutions to science is noticed, and his report
promised. , r
Prot<?sßor Espy is making commendable pro
gress in his meteorojogical observations.
Sundry other topics of minor interest are
adverted to.
The concluding portion of the report is de
voted to the expenditures and estimates of ex
penditures of the Department.
Shakii6 Hands.—An exchange says that l
at a recent duel near Vicksburg the pattiee
discharged their pistols without effect; where
upon, one of the seconds interfered, am) pro
posed that the combatants should shake
hands. 1 o this the other second objected as
unnecessary .• for their hands have been shak
ing this half hour.
' Last week, says the Hudson Gazette, Mr
Henry Hcllenbeck of this city, having seen a
statement in the papers of the wonderful per
formance of an Englishman, concluded to try
his band. He accordingly took his gun, load
ed and laid it upon the ground; he then took
up a potato, threw it up in the air, turned a
somerset, took up the gun, fired and hit the
potato before it reached the ground. This
feat he performed four times.

BITTERS, pfepared by Dr C M Jackson, at the Ger
man Medicine Store, 1 JO Arch street, Philadelphia.
Their power over the above diseases is not excelled
—if equalled—by any other preparation in the United
States, as the cures attest, in many cases after skilful
physicians had failed.
These bitters are worthy the attention of invalid*.—
Possessing great virtues in the rectification of diseases
of the liver and lesser glands, exercising the most
searching powers in weakness and affections of the di
gestive organa, they are, withal, safe, certain and plea

Charles Robinson, Esq, Easton, Md, in a letter to Dt
Jackson, January 9, 185(1, said:
My wife and myself have received more benefit from
your medicine than any other we have ever taken for
dyspepsia an<* liver disease.
The Tenth Legion, published at Woodstock, Va, Ja
nuary 10, 1850, said ;
A GREAT MEDICINE.
We have uniformly refrained from recommending to
the public any of the various Patent Medicines of tha
day, unless thoroughly convinced of their value. A
mong those we consider worthy of notice is the Ger
man Bitten, invented by Dr Hoofland, and prepared by
Dr Jackson, in Philadelphia. One instancein particu
lar, in which the superior virtue of this medicine has
been tested, ha* fallen under our observation During
the last sutnmer, a son of Mr Abraham Crabill, of ftis
county, was very seriously afflicted with liver com
plaint, and after trying in vain various remedies, he
purchased a bottle of the Bitters, and after using it, wa*
so much relieved of his distressing malady, that he
procured another bottle, and is restored entirely to
health
MORE EVIDENCE.
The Philadelphia Saturday Gazette, the best family
newspaper published in the United States. The J&th
tor HOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS,
It is seldom that we recommend what are termed
Patent Medicines to the confidence and patronage of
our readers; and, therefore, whe/i we recommend Dr
Hoofland's German Bitters, we wish it to be distinctly
understood that we are not speaking of the nostrums of
the dav. that are noised about for a brief period and
then forgotten after it has done its guilty race of mis
chief, but of a medicine ion* established, universally
prized, and which has met the hearty approval of the
faculty itself.
This medir ine has attained that high character which
is necessary for all medicines to attain to induce coun
terfeits to put forth a »purious article at the risk of tb*
lives of those who are innocently deceived.
Look well to tke Marks of the Genuine.
They have the written signature of C M Jackson
upon the wrapper, and the name blown in the bottle—
