dance to pleasing melodies, and when bear

of fighting ! The same love of music in the
horse has been noted in more modern times.

French journals tell a very painful story. A
few days back, a lady elegantly dressed, and
wearing many diamonds, drove up to the
house of a gentleman at Enghein, a village
near l'aris, and preaeoting herself as the
Queen of 3pain, said she desired to rent his
house, and wished to be allowed to visit it.
He proceeded to phow her over it, but her
manner was strange, and after awhile she
addressed him as "Sire." He naturally
came to the conclusion tbat she was a luna
tic, tut was embarrassed as to what he
should do. Presently, however, two well
dressed men arrived. The lady at first
6tarted on seeing them, but followed them
quietly, and they twk her away. They told
the gentleman tbat she was a very great
lady, that her mind was affected, and that
she had e caped from Paris on her way to
the Pyrenees, where she had been ordered
by her physicians. The gentleman subse
quently learned that she was no less a per
sonage than the sister of the King of the
Belgians,the sister-in law of the Emperor of
Austria, ihe cousin of the Queen of Eng
land she was the widow of Maximilian,
Emperor of Mexico. She is, it appears,

In the House of Re Dreseuta tires, on Jan
uary 21st, 1870, the bill for the transfer ol
the navy yard from Philadelphia to League
Island being under consideration, Mr. S co
field said: -
Mr. Speaker: The extraordinary efforts
made to defeat this bill, regardless, as it
seems to me, of its merits or demerits, indu
ces me to trespass once again upon the pa
tience of the House. Almost everything
has been discussed by its opponents except
the provisious of the bill itself. Proposed
or apprehended expendtturescHsewhcre have
been sharply criticised perhaps justly ; the
administration of the President in every de
partment has been arrainged, as if to con
vert the opponents of the Administration
into opponents of this bill. Let each mat
ter stand by itself. If improper measures
are proposed there will be an opportunity to
discuss and expose them. If the Adminis
tration has been or proposes to be extrava
gant or wasteful, it will be a fit time for ani
madversion when instances are before the
House. For the present, it is enough to
consider the pending bill.
Now, let us see what this bill proposes to
do. For a long time the Government has
felt the want of a navy yard in which iron
and iron-clad vessels might be constructed.
During the eaily part of the late war this
want was so pressing tbat steps were taken
to supply it. It was urged upon Congress
by the Navy Department. Ouuimissioner
were several times appointed to select a site.
Congressional committees were appointed to
report upon it. These commissioners and
committees, after roaming up and down the
coast and examining all proposed localities,
made their reports. Congress acted upon
them. Such a yard, it was agreed upon by
ail hands, should possess certain advantages.
It should le upon fresh water. It should
be inland, both to secure fresh water and to
be safe from a sudden attack of n enemy.
It should be near iroo and coal. It should
be near to a large city, where artisans, me
cbanics, and laborers of all kinds, and where
machinery of every description, could be
found. It should be where there was plen
ty of space. The navy yards at Boston, New
York, and Philadelphia were all too small.
League Island had all these advantage.-. and
alter a long debate and controversy in Con-gres--,
running through several years, it was
tiually selected. Ihe city of Philadelphia
gave us six hundred acres of .land. It was
staked off and appropriated by the Govern
ment. The gentleman from Massachusetts
says it is a ' tiled fact." I so regard it.
Fixed by law, and more firmly fixed by its
pe.uliar advantages. The owners of adjoin
ing land knew what they are to have for
neighbors. No expensive reside nees, or oth
er buildings unfit for such a locality, will be
erected there, except such buildings as may
be appropriate. The city will grow in an
other direci ion.
' Now, what does this bill propos-e to do?
Make an appropriation to begin the con
struction ot tho yard now? No, ir;no mon
ey can be drawn from the Treasury in conse
quence of this bill. But it proposes that
when League Isl;i:id shall be improved, how
ever near or distant that time may be, a
certain other thing shall be done also. What
is that? The Government has now a navy-
yard at Philadelphia lor the construction ofi
wooden vessels. It lies several miles further
up the 1'eUwa c, in the middle of the city,
(t contains twenty-three acres of land, worth
about three million dollars. It does not
contain half space enough for the use o the
Government, Out it is a great offense tot'that
portion of the city and an obstacle to its
growth. Shall we maintain two navy yards
at Philadelphia, one for iron clads and one
for wooden vessels ? This bill says no. It
undertakes to provide that when the new
navy-yard shall be begun, the machinery and
materials of the old shall be moved down to
it, and as portions of the ground shall thus
become racant they shall be sold. It un
dertakes to authorize the Secretary of the
Navy to improve the new yurd in this way
whenever Uongress suau auiuonzeium to
improve it at all.
Why not wait, it is asked, nntil an appro
priation shall be made for t hi purpose, and
put this direction iu that bill? Because the
rules of the House forbid any legislation in
an appropriation bill. Boides, it could not
thus be done, it w better to do it now. It
may be years before an appropriation will be
made; out it is better for the cit ol Fhil dil
phia that it should bi determined now that
this obstacle to its growth is at some future
time to bo removed ; but it is said also that
it is not safo to leave th-J terms of sale to be
settled by the President, and that the pro
ceeds of it should be paid iuto the Treasury
instead of being expended upon League Is
land. Very well; the friends of the bill
have already accepted amendments to re
move both of these objections.
When the gentleman from Massachusetts
Mr. Dawes is forced to admit that it au
thorizes n. expenditure of money until nn
appropriation shall be made by Congress, he
drops down into an assertion that it is at
least a "forerunner" of an appropriation.
I cannot see much force in his ineverent
wit. If he means simply to say that it is
proposed to pass this bill now, and that
some other kill may be proposed at some fu
ture time, it is true enough. . In that sense
it is a forerunner of all bubseauent legisla
tion. But it he means to say the passage of
this bill necessitates or even facilitates an
appropriation, he has entirely misappre
hended its terms. It does not require the
construction of the navy -yard at League Is
land to be undertaken now, but simply when
it thall be undertaken the old material shall
be used instead of buying new, and that the
old ground shall be sold; in short, that we
shall havo but one navy-yard in Philadelphia
instead of two, as is now provided by law.
It is a measure of economy and retrench
ment, instead of extravagarce or waste.
Faidng to find anything to condemn in
the bill itself, the gentleman starts out on a
hunt through the Departments for topirs of
animadversion. The Secretary of the Navy
has recommended appropriations to the sev
eral navy-yards of the country. It is the
usual course. All other Secretaries have
done the same thing Some years it is more,
some years less. If we are going to have
navy yards at all, we must keep them in re
pair. But the Secretary has been endeav
oring to economize in coal. He has direct
ed the commanders of vessels to uso sails in
stead of steam ; and when the sails were
wanting he has supplied them. He hored
he would thus save money and make better
Xiamen at the same time. Does the gentle
man condemn him for this? Oh, no. sir;
but while he admits that something will
thus be saved, he thinks that the Secretary
has overestimated the amount. And for
this he is made the Bubject of criticism and
ridicule ; and that, too, in a speech profess
edly made in the interest of economy.
"Faithful." cries the gentleman from Mas
sachusetts, as he gives him this unmerited
thrust, "taithlul are the wounds of a friend."
The Postmaster General is the next victim
of these "faithful wounds." What has he
done? He baa reconia ended the abolition
of the franking privilege. In this he repre
sents the wishes of the people. One of the
great journals of the country has-been advo
cating it for many years, making it almost a
speciality. It is an old abuse. The public
interest, as well as the people, demand are
form. Mr. Creswell has the courage to un
dertake it. Doe the ientleiuan take an
open issue with him upon this subject? I
do not so understand him. But he complains
that the amount to be saved to the Treasury
has been overstated. The savin? will not
be $5,000,000. as claimed by the Pos'master
General. Well, suppose it is not, suppose
it is only $1,000,000, is uot that soaielhii it ?
Is not that worth saving? Should this offi
cer be held up as a subject of ad i mad version
and ridicu'e. in a speech claiming to advo
cate economy, for trying to save to the coun
try that small sum, even if tie was mistaken
in his belief that it would be tive times as
much ? Such criticism is not becoming te an
earnest advocate of the uropoed reform.
These are "wounds" indeed, but not the
"faithful wotuvls of a friend." They sug
gest rather tho balance of the text. They
would have been more appropriate than the
part reviled. It is not the cheer of a cj la
borer in a good cause.
But my friend does not content himself
with only two victims of "faithful wounds "
"While the glow is on him" bo calls the
whole Administration to account. Last
year President Johnson made estimates of
the amounts which he thought would Iks suf
ficient for his successor. General Grant.
They were his last will and testament.
Wasteful a his own Administration had
been, he determined to cn'ail a rigid econo
my upon his successor. The gentleman has
been adding up these estimates. Hi makes
them amount to $ ',f)i.0!0.0(W. But he ha
made a mistake. He has left out I7.WX,
000 of the estimate for the Post Olfiee De
partment. With this omiited item incl id
ed. the sura is $:20.SOd,000. Mr. Johnsim
spent a irnod deal more than this himself
but he thought this sum would do for Gen
eral Grant.
Very well, sir: General Orar.t has not
only got alone with this sum but a good deal
less, and with a reduced rate ot taxation ha
already paid nearly eighty one million do
lars of tho public deb'. Bi t the gentleman
further says that General Grant now asks
for more than Mr. Johnson thought he
should have. savs the e.-timates for this
year amount to $331,000,000. Here is an
other error. The estimates tor this year are
a trifle over three hundred and ni eteen mil
lion dollars. The increased sum U made by
iiotitig the estimate for the Post Office De
partment $11,700,000 more than it really
is. When this correction is made it appears
that the whole estimates for this year are
considerably smaller than they were lat.
But this is not all. About six million dol
lars of the estimate ibr thU year go to pay
interest due the sinkin.s fund, which interest
is used to purchase more bonds for the same
fund. This is no part ot th: current expens
es. It should be deducted from the eni
mates. It will thus Iw seen that the John
son estimates exceed those of General Grant
by seven or eiirht milliou dollars. The Ken-
tlemau from Massachusetts had it f'JJ.lWU,
000 the other way.
Mr. Speaker, two things have been alleg
ed in this debate : first, that this bill involv
ed a lann? Ksrwnditure of m mey ; and, sec
ond, tbat the general estimates of this year
are larfterttian they were last. 1 nave snown
that both alle.sat ions are unfounded intact.
The sale ot the old ground will put more
money in the Trea-ury than the removal ot
the old machinery can possibly take out.
The show of hostility to the Administration
is only assumed to mislead thejreal "oppoM
tion" to cast a solid vote aeiinst the bill.
An Administration with a deuiinishing debt
and deminishing fixation cannot be sucojss
fullvtdiarceii' with rndiir:litv.
The old rivalry of location disguised as a
question of icmomy, and charging extrav
agance upon the Administration, is at the
bottom ot thii fight. With some of the op
ponents of this measure the love of economy
is altogether a new passion. Their present
speeches condemn thmr former votes ; and
if this bill, through these dissuises. shall be
defeated, as quite likely it may be, their
subsequent votes, no doubt, will fall und t
the same condemnation. As in oia anec
dote has it, the pigeons will be found ia the
letter, but none in the basket.
