(From our ltegnlnr Corresjioudent. )
Washinotov, January 22, lss3.
Just at present it is the Navy that Con
gress is talking about. Tho Navy, mark
you, the-Vrtr, wants itseit mcreaseu oe
causo forsooth, it is tho ' laughing stock of
Europe." If there is auy rolo tho Navy
cannot eudurc it U th 0 rolo of a laughing
stock, hence every year is repeated this cat
apult nrguweut : "our Navy is the laugh
ing stock of Europe." From a naval point
of view the Navy of tho United States liven,
moves and has its being as tho cynosure of
European admiration. Aud to be laughed
at by Europe. Oh I horrors. It is fortuu
ato for tho United States that this morbid
love of admiration is couflnod principally to
tho official personnel of tho Navy. All of
them havo been to Europe at Government
expense, aud the most that their travels has
taught them is to be ashamed of their
country beenuso it does not live for war, and
has fewer aud less imposing ships aud guns
than the monarchies of Europe, which live
to fight aud fight to live. If '.iio United
States should endeavor to remodel itself in
every lino in which it is the laughing stock
of Europe it would have a stupendous task
before it and our naval 5unthornes may as
well faco their share of European derision.
But there is a lesson that both the Army aud
oili.iinl nnsomu-1 should bem to
learn : Our traditions arc not wavlike : our
chief industry is not war: the flower of
or.r population is not under arms; wo have
not aud cauuot havo a personal interest in
tho armed balance maintained by the colos-

feel themselves de tvop without war ships
aud armies for a setting so much the worse
for their profession aud so much tho better
for the country. The United States can
well all'ord to be laughed at for beating
swords and spears into implements of hus
bandry, and if we havo fewer iron clads and
guns than any great Europeau power, wo on
the other hand have more threshing ma
chines than all of them combined.
There are at least three branches of the
public service for which wo pay a great
deal and for which we have very little use.
Theyaro the Diplomatic, the Military and
the Naval establishments. It may be well
to keep skeleton military and naval estab
lishments as a nucleus of National defence,
but the diplomatic corps is an antiquity, ut
terly useless in modern times. We had no
use for it before the laying of tlu lirst At
lantic cable, but since then it has had no
shadow of excuse for remaining above
There was a spirited debate in Congress
on Saturday relative to the Naval bill and
the discussion will be continued to-day, but
no real reform need bo expected until an
other party has control of legislation, and
executive matters.
Daring the course of the debate Mr.
Knott of Kentu.ky said there werj iu com
mission thirty steaming vessels, for them
were 2:.l engiaeers officers at an aggregate
pav of lUi.OtlO for sea duty. Though
these iientlomon understood their duties
theoretically, he undertook to say that with
the exception of a few men like Melville.
none of them ever had a monkey wrench or
an oil can in their hands since they had
been iu service. Twenty-five officers of
this cii'dneer corns were so loaded with
rink and dignity that there was not a shir
iu the Navy big enough to hold them. If
some indiscreet secretary of the navy should
order a chief engineer, a pay director, aud
11 m.vli.ikl inspector for dutv on the 6ame
ship, the vessel would inevitably siuk.
Th.rw was another corns of which tho
couutry has heard a good deal the marine
coqt which bad a long list officers. The
duties of every one of these officers could lx
us we'd performed by an officer detailed
from the hue of tho Navy : and if he had an
onnori.iuitv he would offer an amendment
k.jokir.2toth.it result. He would also offer
anicndtiients for the gradual alioutiou 01
tb pny corps, and for a reduction in the
rn'ince r corps.
