The termination of a sanguinary contest, which for
the p.ist four years has presented an impassable barrier
to oil social or commercial lnteicourse between the
two great sections of our country, having at length
happily cleared away all obstacles to a removal of
those relations which formerly bound us together in a
fraternal union, I take the earliest opportunity afford
ed me by this auspicious event, to greet my Sonthem
friends, and to s ’licit from them a renewal of that ex.
tensive business connection which for a quarter of a
century has been uninterrupted save by the great pub
lic calamity to which I have adverted.
It is scarcely necessary, on the threshold of a busi
ness re union, I should repeat the warning w> often
given to my friends —to beware of all those spurious
and de’eterions Compounds which, under the specious
and false titles of Imported Wines, Brandies, Holland
Gin, Liquors. ** have been equally destructive to
G»=uiealtb of onr citizens and prejudicial to
of the legitimate Importer. ”
Many years of my past life have been expended in
an open and Candid attempt t > expose these wholesale
frauds; no time nor expense has been spared to ac
complish this salutary purpose, and to place before
my friends and the public generally; at the lowest
possible market price, and in such qnantities as might
suit their convenience, n traily genuine imported arti
Twenty-five years’ bn'ines3 transactions with the
largest and most respectable exporting houses in
France and Great Britain have afforded me unsurpass
ed facilities for supplying our home market with
Wines, Liqnnrs, and Liqucrs of the best and most ap
proval brands in Euiope, in addition to my own dis
tillery in Holland for the manufacture of Ihe “Schie
d .m Schnapps.'
The latter, so long tested and approved by the med
ical Faculties of the United States, West Indies and
South America as an invaluable Therapeutic, a whole
some, pleasant, and perfectly safe beverage in all cli
mates and during all seasons, quickly excited the cn
pidity of ..the home manufacturers and venders of a
spurious-article nuder the same name.
I trust that I have, after much toil and expense, sur
rounded all my importations with safeguards and di
rections which with ordinary ctrcuinApection will in
sure their delivery, as I receive them from Europe, to
all my customers.
I would, however, recommend in all cases where it
is possible, that orders be sent direct to my Depot, 22
Beaver street, New York, or that purchases be made
of my accredited agents.
In addition to a large stock of Wines, Brandies, &c.,
in wood, I have a considerable supply of old tried for
eign w incs, embracing vintages of many past years,
bottled up before the commencement of the war,
which I can especially recommend to all connoisseurs
of these rare luxuries.
In conclusion, I would specially call the car 1 7 atten
tion of my Southern customers to the advantage to be
derived by transmitting their orders without loss of
time, or calling personally at the Depot, In order to
insure the luMllmcnt of their favors from the present
large and well selected assortment.

States, the youngest of ftie three, have

jftFrom the tenor of an article if the Lon
don Quarterly'Review for April, iutitled our
“Our Ships and Guns—their Defects and
their |Remedy” there is sonic appre
hension betrayed that the day for Maritime
asceudaucy for England is pasting* away, or
that she will lie compelled * so maintain a
struggle for that ascendancy greater than she

national hi9tory. That ascendancy i
as much from accidental circumstances and
good fortune as from nauticul skill. Her
insular situation, whiie it protected
her from invasion, her numerous Col
onies by extending her maritime dominion
afforded her always an ample supply of sea
men for manning her lleets. A large mer
cantile marine was an element of power in
sea fights during the engagement of fleets.
Admitting equal bravery, and skill between
the combatants, the numerical superiority in
ihe material of naval warfare gave to the
‘’wooden walls’’ of old England a decided su
But all that is changed now, since the
wars which grew out of the French revolu
tion, during which British supremacy at sea
was made so manifest, until the war of 1812
with the United States, which awakened her
from her dream of superiority.
* Anew era has dawned on the nations—an
era of steam andiron. Naval battles arc no
longer to be fought by sailors, however har
dy, and seamen, however skilful, but by those
means and appliances which bring nations
nearer to an equality in maritime warfare
than has ever entered into human conception.
In no'previous war has France been able to
meet her old enemy at sea, except in single
ships. In future conflicts on the ocean her
ability to fight fleets on terms of equality,
will insure the chances at least of success.
It is a remarkable feature in the history of
Naval improvement, that the application of
steam to naval purposes, the rise ofriron in
the construction of vessels of war, and the
invention of new and more formidable pro
jectiles, as well as ibe greater means of pro
pulsion, should all have taken place within
nient in these branches have gone almost
hand in hand with each other.' The screw
propeller has superseded the paddle-wheel—
the rifled cannon' lias supplanted the smooth
bore, while proportionally heavy armour was
found equally necessary to the defensive pro
perties of thy ship..
It would appear as if the conflict of opin
ion has not yet terminated between the fa
ffrrers of iron and of wooden ships respec
tively. So high au authority as Sir Howard
Doughw has still a lctmlug-to the latter, aud
has pronounced the opinion, “that ves
sels formed wholly of iron were utterly uufit
for all the purposes aud contingencies of wars,
aud that no ship has yet been produced ca
pablp of resisting the penetrations an 1 im
pacts of heayy shot, fulfilling, at the same
time, all the requirements which sea-going
vessel must possess," adding that the Gloire
is a failure as a sea-goiDg ship, and that she
is so burdcred with the weight of armament
and with 820 lons of armour plates, as not
to be capable of ocean service.” Tuo ques
tion is therefore yet in abeyance between iron
aud wood, at least in England.
Aster enumerating the defects of iron ships
the reviewer comes to the remedy. He
speaks in this wise "Skilful! officers and
well disciplined meu will not, however,
alofie give us the victor}’. The new artillery,
the Dew naval architecture must be frankly
, adopted, and we must now briefly consider
; the two material elements of success. When
I the Russian shot aud shell rained harmle93-
[ ly on the first French irou clads at Klnbnrn,
Ia revolution took place iu naval war. At
i first the advantage was entirely on the side
of the ships. Ships could be built of suffice !
enl size to rarry armour all but impenetra
ble to every projectile then in use. The
great danger of a modern sea fight is fife, and
the iron sides conldnot exclude those missies
which were continued to set fire to a wooden
enemy. But the superiority of the iron clads
was short-lived. Guns were continued of so
powerful fa character that no shtp would
float the armour required to oppose them
successfully. The attempt to give entire pro
tection to the ship can now need no longer be
entertained, and it behooves us, under these
altered circumstances, to decide what are
the qualities necessary in a modern man of
war _ . .
The first question to be resolved is the gun :
with which she is to be armed. If tbe Ad
miralty had at once bethought them of find- j
lug the best gun, aud had not fettered that j
consideration with others of minor impnr- j
tance, the question would be nearer solution. ,
The Admiralty however, hampered the gun-!
makers by the incompatible condition of a
gun to be made too light in comparison with
its projectile. The solution of the problem is
to be found by accepting the necessity of a
heavy projectile, fired from a gun of the
requisite weight with a sufficient charge of
powder. The four essential qualities
ties of a gun are precision, force, safety and
endurance. To obtain precision and range
the gun must be rifled, and in the present
state of our knowledge, on the best of those
systems which allows of easy muzzle-load
ing to jobtnin foree, a charge of powder
must be used of at least one-sixth of the
weight of the rifled projectile. To obtain
safety the gun must be made of some mate*
rial which will not burst under rapid and
continuous fire, aud to obtain endurance
1 nr*. i„ igrnnV tyba of-the gun-must be made of
some substance us nai a u»o ctoi»i nmlec
tile, or must be protected from friction by the
interposition of a softer substance upon the
shot. The gun should also be sufficiently
long to give full effect to the charge, and at
least one hundred and fifty times the weight
of the projectile. Add to this that the pro
jectiles must be of steel, aud of 9ueb a diame
ter as to ensure that the holes they make
cannot easily be plugged, and that the charge
they may contain shall blow the side in on
the bursting ol the shell, if. the shell itself
fails’to penetrate. The iron plate committee
found by experiment carefully and repeated
ly made, that no gun of less than twelve tons
weight and capable of being used with 45 lbs.
of powder had been successfully used by
them against targets representing modern
iron-clads, even at two hundred yards dis
tance. It would follow that a steel rifled
projectile of 300 lbs. is tbe. smallest with
which our ships should be armed. To fire
this efficiently a charge of at least CO lbs. of
powder is requisite, aud the only guns wlriclf
can be trusted to fire such charges have been
made, up to this period, of volled wrought
iron. Such a gun as this, however, should
weigh at least 22 ton*, and tbe problem to
be solved is, how to use it at sea. Experi
ments have conclusively proved that no gun
less than the 300 pouuder at present .is equal
to the iron-clads which are uow in the pos
session of our own country and of foreign
navies, but the 300 pounder at- present is a
gun of only 12 tons weight. The best of the
old 32 pounders was nearly 200 times the
weight of the shot, and the 95 cwt. G 8 poun
der was more than 180 times'*the weight of
the shot. But the Admiralty .will not give
up the broadside principle ; and though only
two ycap ago they decided that no ship
could use guns of more than G tons weight
in the broadside, they have determined rath
er than give up their darling broadsides, to
make wbat they caU a compromise, and to
Uie a 12 ton gun which is too heavy for the
broadside and too light for the shot. No
doubt exists that such guns a3 we require can
be constructed, for a gun of twice the speci
fied weight, known as "Big Will,” has been
successfully used with a shot twice ns heavy
aud a charge of 70 lbs.; and not only can
they be constructed, but guns as large are
being made iu this cotiutry, and supplied to
every foreign Po wer from Russia to Peru.”
These eontemplaced improvements show
that the construction and armament of Ves
sels of wat are earnestly discussed in Eng
land, in view of those terrible conflicts at sea
which the new modes of naval warfare will
force ou the acceptance of all countries not
insensihlo to maritime reputation. The fol
lowing sentence would seem to appropriate
a discovery made by one of our own naval
constructors: “ Simultaneously with the
gre it advances in artillery, white we have
ban discussing, h discovery waar made which
gave us the power to use these monster guns
PRICE, 5 CENTS
at sea. An i.rgeu.ous officer, now famous,
Opt. Coles* bethought him of applying the
railway turn-table to ship purposes, and by
ao ingenious adaptation, the now well known
cupola protected the gun and gave it facility
for mancjpuvering. Grudgingly did the Ad
miralty accept this fortunate discovery, and
its advantages had been recognize by Panes
and. .-lf/G/ irm? long before we hid a ship ol
the necessaiy pattern.” The author of this
discovery i*weH known to be Ericsson, &n
American, and although the appropriation of
the discovery is disguised under the term
adaptaf.oh, it is obvious that credit is not
freely given where it is due, but assigned in
a general way to Danes and American.—
This is the first anon tion wo-have seen of any
part of the credit being due to the Danes for
one of the most splendid nautical discoveries
| of the age.
From the subjoined statement we would
conclude that the British navy was not in the
; most efficient condition
“If this idea of what our fleet should be is
correct, the state of the navy, atter fifty-eight
millions of Whig expenditures, cannot be
considered very satisfactory. We have only
four shi;is with turn-tables, nnduotouc of
them is a sca-going ship. In the channel our
iron-clad fleet is, with few exceptions, re
ported to bo not very sea-worthy.. In the
Mediterranean there ate only three Iron-clads,
and the two Admirals there hoist their flag3
in wooden screw line-of-battle-ships, with
which it would be madness to meet the small
est iron-clad of Frauce or Italy. Os the
twcnty-lour wooden ships under Sir James
Hope's orders, on the coast of North Ameri
ca, none are iron-plated, and it is said that
no gun is on board any of them capable of
making any impression on an iron-clad ship.
The other stations are similarly unprepared,
and the farce of a squadron of seventeen
ships is maintained ou the West const of
Africa for the suppression of the slave trade,
which the slavers laugh to scorn—a squadron
of which about fifteen ships are gunboals, or
vessels built too late for the Russian war, not
one. of whirk can steam nine knots, though
their duty is to catch steamers known to be
! the swiftest on the ocean.”
We have made these extracts to show how
oiwu-atlv alive Britfrh statesmen are to the
Improvements which the material ol irou has
introduced iuto the construction and arma
ment ofvessejs of war. They seem fully
alive to the changes which their neighbors
the French have made in their means of
maritime attack and defence, but trom the
absence of all allusion to American improve
ments of a similar character, except in a
single iustance, it would seem as if the last
four years had left a blank iu national re
