NAVAL BOAltD AND LIEUT. .
MAfliY.
In the annals oi* blunders ami the-chronicles
of absurdities, there is found no parallel to the
proceedings of the Naval Board Appointed under
an act of the last Congress, entitled, "An art to
promote the efficiency of the Navy," and which
assembled at "Washington on the 2uth of June
and terminated its labors on the 20th of July.?
It wan composwl of five captains, five comman
ders, and five lieutenants, selected by ihe Presi
dent, and they were to report to the President
the names of all navy officers "found incapable
of performing: the duties of their respective
ranks and grades." The Board reported as in
capable, Ac. one hundred and ninety-tour offi
cers who "ran the gauntlet" before them. Of
this number of "incompetents," 138 graded
aborti the junior member of the JJoard and onlv
btlote him, and of his own grade; one-third
? t#f those abort him were found incompetent,
while of the number biloie him only one-*eeenth.
Thi* is rather a remarkable result, and of itself
telis its tale. The records of the Senate during
the present session, show the general dissatis
faction felt everywhere at the unheard of mode
of proceeding adopted by, and the iniquitous re
write consequent upon the action of this Board.
?Day after day do petitions pour in, signed by
the people, protesting against its proceedings anil
asking to have the meritorious officers of the
Navy, its pride and its ornaments, restored to
their country's scrvice and relieved from the
stigma which this Star Chamber proceeding has
affixed to their hitherto unspotted names.
In all the records of the Inquisition there is
found no instance of proceedings such as have
characterized the action of this Board. They sat
with closed doors, examined no witnesses, made
do charges, kept no records, and simply present
to the President their conclusion that the best
officers in the Navy are incompetent. They
were not even sworn to do their duty; a major
ity of one may have decided every case, and we
have thus one hundred and eighty-eight officers
of th? -Vury ejected from office, degraded, and
forectr barred from promotion in their profes
m?n, and thir, pouibly, by the rote of one Liev
tenant, and he not erenncorn.'/ Was ever such
an instance known in the history of tyranny?
Among the number who have beon pronoun
ced "incompetent," is Lieutenant Jr. IV Maury
* of the United States Observatory, and when the
public are informed of this they will not be sur
prised at the violent justice of the complaints
made of the action of this Board.
It seems from a letter of Lieut. Biddle, one of
this notorious Hoard, that Lieut. Maury was cut
off because he met with an accident some 15
years since, while on duty, which was then very
serious. It does not appear that it is so now.
But Lieut. Iiiddle goes on to say that "whenever
eases presented themselves to the Board, of offi
cers physically able, but morally unwilling to
perform that duty, (service afloat,) I consider
they were bound to remove such persons from
the active list?no matter whether that unwill
ingness arose from idleness, love of case, love of
money, preference for other pursuits, or even
from an otherwise most laudable lore of scientific
ditUncUo),:' To be a sailor at the mast, to be
able to load and tire a gun, ship the rudder, furl
the sails, and pilot the ship, seems to be the
acme of naval qualifications, in the opinion of this
board?while the man of science, of intellect, of
general attainments, of the most pre-eminent
naval knowledge, who lias charted out the ocean,'
and plainly marked the pathway of navies over
the deep, who has taught them how to avoid the
trado winds and sliun the storm, who has con
tributed more to promote the "efficiency" of na
vies and navigation, by a single work, than this
Board could contribute in a milcnnium (were
they kept together that long, and with a record
its proceedings); is voted by this sapient as
sembly to be incompeteut and necessary to be
T?note.l in order to promote the "efficiency of
the navy"!! In the 19th century we have had
presented theold question of the ancients("when
band to hand the combatants contended'") wheth
er bodily strength or intellect was the better
general, and a Board of the American Xavr
have deliberately "found for. bodily strength."
W hat a commentary upon the science of the 19th
century! Tho American people will hardly
submit to this. They will be slow to degrade
the man of science in their navy, whose name
is more familiar, through his works, over Christ
endom, than the combined names of all the aspi
rants for the place thus vacated, added to the
names of those who sanctioned their inquisitori
al, unprecedented and tyrannical proceeding.
Wo look confidently to Congress to nullify
the whole proceedings of this board, we look to
Congress to uphold talent, servicc and science,
U> restore, and to promote the men who have
thus been stricken down by the "power of dark
ness," and to say to the world that the Ameri
can Congress has yet to learn that it "promotes
the efficiency of her navy" to strike down and
degrade hertried and noblest officers, herbright
est ornaments, and cast a slur upon science
and naval scientific attainment, but that on the
contrary "naval efficiency" can best be promo
ted by promoting merit and attainment, wherev
er and whenever found in the navy.

PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD
AND BALTIMORE AND OHIO
RAILROAD.
Editors of (he Ji.tKii.iore Amcrifi.cn :
By a report of the annual meeting of the Di
rector? of the Pennsylvania Kailroad, published
in the Philadelphia North American of the 5th
inst., I find an allusion tnade to tho coutraot ex
isting between Messrs. >E Co. and that
road, showing an expi-ijdittue by the Pennsyl
! vania Railroad' to tneiragfciSts for the object of
'securing an eastern bound business of ten per
(rut. on the total revenue controlled by thr-in;
whilst by arrangement between Messrs. Forsyths
& Bain and Mr. Done, on.the part of the Balti
more and Ohio Railroad Company, the whole ex
penditure for securing the sAme business i< twen
ty rtnlit per ton. With this leverage in tho hands
of Messrs. Leech & Co., it has been'shown that
they controlled"! 8,948 tons of produce east
ward in-four. a)i/7 a half month*, making h gross
revenue of $323,497,"at cost of $32,349. Against
this, and with no incentive from the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad, Messrs. Forsyth & Bain con
trolled in four month?2S,Slf tons, making agross
revenue to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (ac
cording to the estimate made by the Pennsyl
vania Railroad Company) of $396,933, and at a
cost of only $4,663.
My object in making a comparison between i
the amount of tonnage contolled by Messrs. Leech:
& Co. over the Pennsylvania Railroad, and that
controlled by Messrs. "Forsyths & Bain over the
Baltimore and Ohio Kailroad, is for the purpose
of showing the advantageous results growing
out of the policy pursed by Mr. Done, whilst act
ing as master of transportation of the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad, and which is evidence of the
economical system pursued by him.

THE CAMP-HUNT.
A Poem iu two Cantos.
CANTO FIRST.
THE DEPARTL'RB.
How gallantly, how gallantly, they Hiring upon their steeds,
These hunters bold, of great renown; these kulglits of noble
deeds?
Kach armed with trusty rifle; shot poach and powder horn,
And boasting of the herds of deer they'll slay ere they re>
turn.
; No more of partridge-shootiog; of doves, or prairie hen;
"The hunting of the red deer is the only sport for men."
Provision offered they reject with scorn but ill concealedt
Their faith La in their good right arms?their rifl?-i? in the
field.
They talk of juicy venfron steaks, and bear's meat nice and
rar*-.
And swear that they could live a month without a thought or
care;
And laughingly they prophesy, so fat they shall have grown,
Their fainting steeds wiil scare suffice to bear the harden
home.
! 80. on this sunny rooming, they marshal side by side,
I And out into the wilderness, with dog and guu they ride.
Thus forth upon a caiup-hunt, ?0 gallantly they're gone,
! While they leave the weeping female* to mourn at home
alone.

T1IE RETURN.
How silently, how silently, they ride in, one by one,
With drooping heads, as if they feared, to look upon the sun,
And If among the bushes a fluttering skirt they see.
They turn aside a moment, and hide behind a tree.
Among the boasting Nimrods, who went forth with gallant
mefo,
No venison, no branching horns, of slaughtered stag are
seen,
No grim and ghastly bear's head upon the pommel borne;
But empty handed, as they went, so, empty they return.
Are these the men who promised hs so fat they should be
come
Their weary steeds could never bear the heavy burden home?
Why, on my word, had I not heard, their wondrous deeds of
yore,
I'd swear they had not tasted meat, for seven days and
more,
Thus stealing back, shame-faeedly, from their camp-hunt,
they come.
And all the merry females with laughter greet them home.

E5f~"The good time coming," about which
so much has been said and sung, has at last ac
tually arrived, and in announcing this auspic
ous event, we take almost as much pleasure as
we should in heralding, the dawn of the millcni
al morning. The especial "good time" to which
we refer consists in the fact that the dreaded
scourge of the West, Fever and Ague, has found
its master and for the future will be robbed of
its terrors.
Rhodes' Fever and Ague Cure is the article
which has accomplished this glorious result and
like a piean in honor of some valiant conqueror,
rises the sound of gratitude from thousand voi
ces all over the land.
The proprietor may feel inward satisfaction at
being the means of dispensing joy and gladness
to thousands who have hitherto groaned in bon
dage worse than was ever imposed by Egyptian
task masters. Rejoice afflicted; for in this in
comparable remedy you have certain restoration
to that perfect heaitH withoutwhichlifc is weari
some.
A Spirit Raited Rappkd.?A noted spirit
rapper in one of the Northern conventicles, at a
recent sitting of the faithful, remarked thai he
hadjustreceived intelligence of the death of a
dear, devoted, and estimable friend in Califor
uia, and expressed a desire at once to enter into
communication with liis spirit After the usual
preparatory table turning and rapping, the spir
it of the departed manifested its willingness to
commence a cosy chat, whereupon the enter
tainment opened and closed with the following
short diatogue:
'How long have you been dead;'
'Ten weeks next Thursday.
'And the cause of your aeaUrt'
'I was hung for stealing a yoke of steers and
altering the brand!!
No more questions were sent under that ta
ble.- complete silence reigned.

TH KI .OST STEAMSHIPS. >
Since 1853, no less thanj.welve international
steamships liave been lost. TheSepjhunt's Maga
zine, in.an article upon the subject/pays:
x" "For tliree consecutive months, early in 1853,
^'Pacific' waters uttered their voices of alarm and
instruction, by the total loss of three valuable
steamships, and sacrifice of over one and ont
fflurth hundred lives of our citizens. It were j
possible the voice of spring, thus uttered, might J
be unheeded, and the last month of the retiring
year utters again the Pacific's voice in the total .
loss of the '\Vinfield Scott,' ami the Atlantic's.,
voicc is hear?l through the 4IIumboIt ana the ;
San Brancisco,'affixing theical to {heK-insfa-uc-_ J
tions, a* to the imvneidmt state or' our' ttfinii- ;
WyS not only by the loss of these three valun- "|
ble ships and much merchandise^ but by the sap- ;
ritlce of over two hundred lives, many of whom ,
bad entered the ranks gf national usefulness, and. .
national promotion to high responsibilities.
?'The sum total of 1853, makes five valuable
steamships stranded and totally lost; one disabled, !
abandoned and lowt at sea; and with two out of j
the 'six, over three aud half hundred valuable lives ;
perished with the wrecks.
"The Atlantic waters introduced the losses by ;
this class of international steamships for 185+,'
and March utters her lesson by the 'City of t'ilas- |
gow,' and about four hundred and eighty lives; '
July by the 'Franklin,' which is stranded and :
lost at the door of our harbor; September, by !
the 'City of Philadelphia,' stranded and lost; and \
in hot haste the 'Arctic,! with hundreds of lives ;
sinks to rise no more. History can never por- j
tray the horrors and sorrows with which memo- J
ry imbues the mind that has witnessed, or,listeh; |
ed to the witnesses of this sad catastrophe. Im- ;
mediately succeeding these two September losses p
the 1st of October speaks from the Pacific through :
the total wreck of the 'Vankee Blade,' and near- S
Iy half a hundred lives. j
"Wo sum up for lf-ji, three valuable steam- ;
ships stranded and totally lost, with much of i
their very valuable cargoes; and one that sunk j
to bury its own history; and auother that sunk !
to stamp its history indelibly upon the minds of :
the commercial world. j
"We have the siuking of the 2<orith Carolina' ;
in a few minutes after her collision, for April, I
1855, and just before she reached her destination i
in a foreign port: also, iu the same month, we i
have the stranding of the 'Golden Age/and may !
we not hope that the lesson of her imminent per- i
il, with eight hundred passengers, and (what is, ]
perhaps, more significant t<> some) oue-and-tlirce |
tenths millions of specie; with the fortunate and ?
providential rescue of all, may prove a golden !
lesson tothis'age,' and the more especially siuce i
the projector and president of this line stood up- |
on her decks an eye-witness of her perils, her exi
gencies, and her improvident state.
"Duringa period of twenty-six months, twelve
of this class of steamships were totally lost, and
one more 'scarely' saved.
"The nine stranded ships, at the time of their
casualties, had an aggregate of over four-and-a- j
half thousand passengers, and adding crews, o- >;
ver five-and-a-half thousand persons. They al
so possessed a value in bottomry of over t\vo-and
onc-fourth millions, and in specie and merchan
dise of six and-one-fourth millions; hence, a total
of over eight-and-a-half millions of dollars was
thus jeoparded.
"The four sunk at sea jeoparded over sixteen
hundred lives, and over two-and-a-half millions
of property."

AMERICAN" STATE DEBTS.
A paragraph with regard to American State
debts, in a letter inserted in the Times to-day
from Sir F. 15. Head, calls fora remark. It re
fers to "the repudiation by the State of Florida
of about $2,000,000, by the State of Arkansas of
all their debts, by tlu- State of Mississippi of
$5,000,000 of their debt," and, Anally, to "the
unpaid debts to this country of the States of Al
abama, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
The charge thus made against Florida, Arkan
sas and Mississippi is perfectly correct, and the
list might have been increased, by including the
State of Michigan, which, like Mississippi, is
one of the most prosperous of the Union, and is
equally shameless in the treatment of its credit
ors. Alabama, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ma
ryland, however, have not only never repudiated
their obligations, but arc free from any arrear of
debt. It is true that Pennsylvania and Mary
land suspenped payment for a short period, but
the latter Stale made effort to avoid the disaster,
and ultimately met every claim in an honorable
manner, while Pennsylvania, whose conduct at
one time seemed likely to be very discreditable,
also,' in the end, discharged her arrears, and
would have entirely redeemed her character had
she not, in connection with a small amount ot
bonds, temporarily issued to represent those ar
rears, refused to pay the full rate of interest she
had contracted for. It is esseutial that these
points should be borne in mind, and they have
been frequently repeated by the Times, especial
ly, as regards Pennsylvania, with the object of
correcting the mistake into which English wri
ters commonly fall of speaking of that State as
the centre of American dishonor. As the pros
pect of the really delinquent States being bro t
to a batter course must depend chiefly 'upon
keeping them constantly before the world, in
disgraceful isolation froin all respectable rem.
munitie*, nothing can be more iujurious to the
cause ofthe creditors than the practice of con
founding them with others against whom them
is uO complaint.
Increase or Railroad Fares.?At the late
annaul meeting of the Boston it orcesw Rail
road Company, the subject of the unreinuncra
tive rates of fare and freights, was introduced
by Mr. Win. Sturgis. lie commented upon the
iucrea.se ofthe construction account since 1S4!:,
from $1,800,000 to $5,000,000?of this increase
two and a half millions had been for extra freight
accommodations, which had not paid four per
cent, on the money invested. Of the million bar
rels or more of flour carried over the road, much
of it had been at less than cost. If, continued
he, forwarders will not pay a fair price for peir
flour carriage, let them keep it at home.
The speaker then took up the subject of fares.
The original fare between Worcester snd Boston
was $2,''it being now $1.50. Tho speaker quo
ted from the Directors of the Vermont and Mas
sachusetts road on the subject of the inadequacy
of present rates. lie was in favor of the estab
lishment of remunerating rates, whether other
roads did or not. A document, he said, would
shortly appear which would show that the rail
roads running out of Boston had sunk eight
millions of dollars from inadequate fares and
other causes.
He concluded by reading a preamble and reso
lution. setting forth that while freights had been
diminished, outlavs and expenses had been in
creased, until the nctt receipts were not remu
nerative ?and therefore the directors wwc re
quested to increase, as soon a9 may be, the rates
sufficiently1" to obtain an increased yearly income
of $130,000, and to effect this to advance season
tickets twenty-five per cent, and transient
sengers to at least three cents per mile?and an
increase on freight so that it wiU pay its share
ofthe increased income. After some debate the
preamble and resolution were adopted.
The stockholders of the Boston k Providence
Railroad Company, at a recent meeting, voted
unanimously that it was expedient to raise the
transient fares on the road at least 20 pfcr cent.
It was also voted as the opinion of the meeting,
that there should be a decided general advance
in the tariff on freights.?.V. 1'. Courier ana En

tyThe bill to reraore the restrictions from
the charter of the Northwestern railroad compa
ny came up in the Hons* of Delegates last week,
and was wiselv so amended as to require the
Baltimore and" Ohio railroad company to pay the
interest (in dividends or otherwise) upon the
$500,000 which Wheeling borrowed and inves-.
ted in that company's stock. "W hereupon' Mr.
Brannon, a friend ofthe bill before its amend
ment, moved to lay it upon the table; and it was
done We hope the House will be firm. There
Is a great deal more than $500,000 invested in
the Northwestern railroad, and it.is .not likely
that the B. A. O. company will choose the great
er evil. The people who are petitioning for the
removal of the restrictions need tiotfear the re

of ibc best physician* In England, and all the relief I obMlu*
