THE NEW YORK HER ALB. OLE NO. 6862. SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 10, 1855. PRICE TWO CENTS VI8IT TO THE NAVY YARD. IMPROVEMENTS IN NEW BUILDINGS-VES SELS ON THE STOCKS? THE srEAM FRI GATE NIAGARA Ac , Ac. The Brooklyn Navy Yard presents, at tbe present mo ment, a *o*a* of industrial activity and official energy directed toward* works of permanent improvement, the advancement of onr marine power, the caoae of univer sal philanlrophy, and the developement of a knowledge of the navigaticn of the icy s?as of the North, which are &t once pleasing to b?hoid, ereditable to the country, and interesting to the civilized world. The appropriation of three hundred and fifty thousand dollars, lately voted by Congress, is being expended in the erection of new buildirgs, suited for th? purposes of an armory, timber s&eds, and smithery ; the promoting of a system ?f general drainage, the secur ng a c mutant supply of water, both for meehanical uses and the comfort of the people employed; the better enclosure of the place along the line separating It from the city, and (he building of a solid boundary wall which will curve around the pre mises inside from point to point, and act as a breakwater to the waves of the Wallabout. On the other hand, the waters of the bay were lately dotted with ten vessel* of war? first class ships, frigates aid sloops, ? which wers aither in process of being computed and made ready for sea, overhauled and repaired, or laid up in ordinary. In addition to these, the twe vessels? Arctic and Release ? which were despatched a few days ago on a cruise to the Arctic Ocean in sesrch of Doctor Kane and his companions, were lying in tbe East river ready to start at a few hours' notice on their mission of patriotism and research. This fine fleet was augmented by the four United States vessels which have been since detached by the executive in order to blockade the steamer United States, in the Kaat river, and thus preserve the present conservatism of onr government in the eyes of other nations, by preventing Cat. Kinney from sailing with hie armed volunteers tor Nicaragua. In the ship building department, an American meshanic? Mr. Geo. Steers? ha* over three hundred men at work on a new ?team fiigate of war, which, when oompleted, will chal lenge the wonder and admiration of the world for siie, beauty of mould and equipment; whilst her launch for the government by a private individual contractor, will afford a bright example of tbe fostering care which our democratic institutions extend over genius and merit. These remarks are necess*ry to enable the reader to clearly understand the result of a visit which one of our reporters paid to ihe Navy Yard on Tuesday, the 29th of Hay, which is detailed below, under different heads, and pretty much in the came order in which the subjects are noticed. With regard to THB LAND IMPROVEMENTS AND NEW BUILDINGS. At a point running about aouth-west from the Are en gine houee in the yard, about fifty laborers are daily employed under direction of the Engineer in Chief in filling in a large space of damp waste ground on which it is intended to build an extensive timber sited. Over ?n acre ef land has been already reclaimed, and nearly double that space will tocn be available. The old tim ber basin, situated in the- same neighborhood, is also being gradually filled in, and another is being formed nt a point more advanced tow rds the river and more convenient to the sheds and saw mills. All the oak was being cleared out of the basin hitherto used, and the magnificent ship knees of that wood which had lain in it for some time, taken to the " knee pond" of the new basin, which is already fit for use. This pond is situate at the end of the new basin nearest te the land, and is divided from that portion of the reservoir which is in tended for general purposes. A little bit further on commences the great and ne cessary work of Vie building of a new quay wall, which Is intended to act as a barrier against the tides and waves of the river and bay This wall will be of blue granite stone, with its foundation laid on wooden piles sunk ten fe?t beneath the concrete of the shore bottom. It will a vet age a breadth of ten feet all through, and extend in a gentle curve for t wo hundred and sixty feet along tbe fringe of the land. After the wal has reached the intended height, a Ruse pave- , meat, extending forty feet in on the yard, will be laid down all along its length, which will make a complete finish on that aide, and add greatly to the beauty of the premises. On the old wall, which separate! the yard from the city of Brooklyn, about eight hundred feet of spiked iron fence railing have been pat lately. Tliis completes tbe protection of the place on that sids , and was very much required. The eng ineer having lately ordered that water pipes should be laid down, so as to supply the mechanical departments re quiring it, this work has been nearly finished, anl in a Ihort time some thousands of feet of pipe will convey ftater into the shops of the smith and boiler maker, as it is now brought to the offices of the various officers. With respect te the mew buildings, in the vicinity of tbe newly formed ground an oblong brick house has been put up. of the dimensions of three hundred feet long by eighty feet broad. It stands with on* end to the river, and is entered by elegant and light arches on either side. This buil<iiDg is nearly two stories high, but will not have any floor above. The roof is grace fully supported and braced by light rrutal rots. One end of It will be partitioned off and used as a piutnmsr'i ?bop, the remainder will be fitted up as a ramithery. No building could be better adapted tor such purposes, as its great extent, admirable location and arrangements for ventilation will secure both tbe de spatch of work and the health of the artisans. South of this smitbery a boiler-maker's shop will be immediately nut. of tbe extent of three hundred feet by sixty. 1 his building has been already commenced, as alto a coil house of the sice of one hundred and thirty - live feet by twenty. Running east by west in the yard, and nearly forming tbe other side of a square with the new smithery, about i forty men, seasons, with their attendants, are employed t in builoiog a brick house intended for a timber shed. f It will be three hundred feet long by sixty, and a story I and a half high. A aeries of elegant and substantial arches, groinde with cut stone, will leal into it, and thence to a large room overhead. A new aimory, which will be two itories high and two hundred feet long by sixty feet wide, is also going up, and a new gun carriage house aud gun carriage shed, the one of iron and the other of brict, will be built. The upper ntory of the armory will be used tor the keep ing ot small arms. Near the emithery just spoken of, the mason* are em ployed in raising a foundry chimney, which will go up to a height of one hundred and twenty-five feet from a olue stone base of eighteen feet. This chimney will have four flues, one connecting with each shop requiring heat, such ss the smithery and boiler- makers The old houses, half of wood and brick, so long used as rigger's and blockmaker's shops, a gun carriage house, and coffee and npice mills sre about to be taken down am) new shops for th<> joiners and carpenters erected on their sites. It has also been decided to put up a new oakum shed. A steam sawmill is also nearly completed All these im provements have been made with a view to a system of thorough drainage. About sixty men are oonstantly employed la dredging the harbor close to the shore, iu Order to permit tbe masons to carry on tbe work of the new quay wall, already described. These laborers work in all sea?ons. In connection with the mwly made ground ou which many of th? buildings have been erected, a curiou* fact ? related by Mr. O Neil, the mastsr housecarpenter of the yard ? is worthy ot mention. Some year* ago the Ger man rsg pickers of Brooklyn, men, women, and children, wtre In the habit of resorting to thi* swamp lanl dally, in order to sift tbe heaps of coal ashes they bad collect ed. Tbe.y were not disturbed, and the effect was, that tbe riddling" formed a hard foundation and dried up a lot of land which it would have cost the government apwenl* of ten thousand dollars to reclaim in the usual way. since the organisation of their new settlement, neer Williamsburg, these German aids of "Uncle Ram" bave ceased operations, but they remain tnank tul for the accommodation he afforded tnem in lime of need. Mr. Entriken, master mason, directs the men employed on the new houses; Mr. Wi'sou superintends the progress of the quay wsll and tlued cbimnef . Mr. Charles Beak is in charge of the lumber abed, and Mr. E. J. Sturges of the armjry? all of whom are employed, of course, In carrying out the de signs and direttion* of Gen. Ward B. Burnett, chief en gineer, and Mr McKlroy, bu assistant. Having concluded the report of the aew work* going up in the yard, the next thing in point of interest is to notice the flHir BUILDING ? HI* STEAM FRIO ATI NIAGARA ? VE8 HKI.8 It RP AIRING, LAID UP, AND BRADY FOR RE A. The great point of attraction, both to citisen* and visiters from foreign countries, la the building shel where the new ear steam fiigate Niagara is now on the stocks, under the direction of Mr. George Steers. Of the five frigates ordered to be built by the (at* vote of CoLgreM, the Niagara Is the only one the contract for which h*s \>een entrusted to a private individual ; and it Istliotig' . that the vessel, when finished, will fully jus lily the ttf?ctation of the people, anl do credit to the foresight of Mr. Secretary Dobb'n. On Tuesday last there wi re over three hundred ship carpenters employed on tbe Niagara, ''kneeing" her deck frame*, and putting lb her fore and aft pteaes. The Inten tion of the government was that this vtesej rhomld cost one million dollars, but the bu'lder and others are of opinion that she will be finish* ! lot a sum UtUe exceeding nine hualred ait thirty thousand. When oompleted thff NUgara will be, we be ? blieve, the largest ship afloat on any water in the wor.d. Eer dimension* and tonnage will be as follow ?Tonnage Ore thousand two hundred; extreme length of the deck three hundred and forty-six feet; extreme breadth fifty' eix feet ; and depth of hold thirty-one feet, the load line w 111 be three hundred and twenty-three fee*; ?he will be full ship rigged ; the mainmast wi? be one ban" dred and ten'or eleven feet high, with a diameter of three feet four Inches; her mainyard will be fifty- At* feet long, and the mlzen spanker boom aixty seven feet. Besides her orlop three other decks will be put in. Bhe will be built with live oak all through. The Niagara will be armed with twelve 11-inch ptvot guns, eaoh ?f which will throw a shot weighing one hundred and seventy ponnds. Mr. Steers calculate# that this frigate will use up in her construction, ef live oak, 40,000 cubic feet; while oak. 10,000 cubic feet, white plank, 11,000 super ficial cubic feet; yellow pin*, 42, (Kit cubic fe*t; yellow pine plank, 60,000 superficial feet ; white pins timber. 8,000 cubio feet; white pine plank, 42,000 siperfleia. pet ; iron, 350,000 pounds, copper, 140,000 pounds spikes, 20,000 pounds. It Is thought that the frigate when under sail will make stventsen knots an hoar He* steam engine* will not be proportionate to her sire in other rvspects, and parhaps she mar not steam so uuickly. It .1 hoped that the Niagara will be ready for launohing in the early part of 1856, when she will be manned by a crew exoeeding four hundred, all told. ?the8abm?. another frigate of the first olasa? which baa bsen lately launched, and then described rnoir column*? is now bsing completed, and in almost all or the shops men are employed in furnishing her different requirements. In tne gunners' department men are busy in arranging her battery and ?$***??' wb'iat the artisans are ttttirg up their tackling and making her leather powder cases, funwads and general tarnebs work. The breeching ot her guns i* finished bun carriages are being completed for to ft ; her pivot guns with torty eight truck carriages. The Sabine has bad two complete suites o' sails Irom the sallmaiter, and half a dot*n of ship carpenters are at work Inside of hsr cleaning her off and giving hsr a finish, rhe i?t>Jns win carry sixteen thirty -two pounders, weighing thirty three hundred each, with two pivot guns-one placed Tor ward and the other aft. She will soon be ready for sea. The frigate Congress, a beautiful vessel, can be got ready for sea in one day. This frigate was built in 1841 at Kittery, (Me.,) for forty four guns, nni to suit a crew ot four hundrtd men. 3he is now destined to be the flag ship ot Commodore Bree.e, when in command of the Mediterranean squadron, and only ljing to awaiting the order of the authsritiei i to depart.

When ^mina^re Rod aers in the President chased the British frigate BelviiJere, 23d June, 1812, off New York, the Congress came up and K?ve the latter fenr shots at the moment of her lucky and uarrow tecape from capturs.

In December of the same year Capt. Smith took the Congress into Portsmouth, N. H .repining that be tad Uken only six Britiih vessels during a ?ni*e beginning on the 30th of April before.

Under the laborers' department, there war# two hundred and forty Men employed in general yard work, and on some of the old ships. Taking the wagaa af tact of these at six dollars a weak, it would mako a ram of ?>? thousand four hundred and forty dollars.

The large it size is eighteen feet long and sere a feet at its greatest diameter, and gradually tapers away to eithir end to a diameter sot exceeding twenty-two inches. The beautifully made stavei etart at the end at a breadth of one and three- fourth Inches, and expand towards the thljkest part of the buoy, and then fall off again ta a narrow end. One of the largest ' ' non buoys" will aoon be put jown at Sandy Hook. The small ones are fourteen feet a long, and a u um ber of each size are nearly ready. good many "can buoys" are alio on hand, and a large number of water bariels bare been given to the Levant an 1 oihar ves sels. Mr. Hardenbrook employs his men well. Mr. O'Neil ? the master house carpenter? who i? a very scientific man, employs his men about the new tint bet shed, in mating improvements in the engineer de partment, clearing off piles for the new quay wall and other works He is also finishing a new magazine on Ellis's Inland, which is nearly completed, and a new house for a gunner, forty-four feet by thirty-two, and two atory high. It will be a double house. Mr. O'Neil is also perfecting an improvement in a wheel for steamers, calculated to add to its force, ease eff the back water. and afford a buoyancy to the veeeel. This is to be done by placing a new invention, called a "float," on each bar of the wheel which changes frem the centre to the circumferrence. As each revolution is made these floats will fall down on the bar, and thus add to the velocity of the wheel, whilst it will cause the backwater to be thrown olf. The wheal !s worthy of inspection, and its progress shows that Mr O'Neil knows how to combine the pursuits of science with those ot duty. Twenty- three aailmakers have used two hundred and fifty bolts of canvass in three months in making sails for various veesels, and are now preparing an ample deck awning for the North Carolina. In the shops of the plumber, moulder, painter, ord nance master, ship ctrpenter, blockmaker, moulder, and boat building, the same activity is obtervt ble . The mast house is also in a highly creditable state, and contains the lines, of a large line of battleship, with the vasts and spars of a seventy four, and other work. Commodore Boorman commands in the yard. Mr. Dela no, Naval Constructor, performs daily the most arduous duties In a most efficient manner, as does Mr. Brady, Master or the Yard. Colonel Delavan, Storekeeper, and his able Deputy, Mr. Purdv, will have now a little relax ation from sfficial toil, whilst the duty of General Bar neit will still Increase until the BrookJyn Npvy Yard is a model for the world. Operatic Intelligence. A SPEECH FROM A Pa I MA DONNA ? Til IT ItaBfclO EltKh'T OPABA THOLTPU ON TUB PACIFIC, EfO. The Academy Opera troupe in Boston have given their concluding performance. Curing the week the princi pal artists bad their benefits. Vestvali had her benefit on Monday, and, being called out, read the fol lowing speech:? Ladies and Centlemen ? It would be flattering to my prii'e 10 think that the crowd which fills the Boston theatre to nigbt was a mark of your esteem for ine. But 1 attribute it solely to your higu appreciation of tne cistingnisbed artists around me, whose ?Sorts have so repeatedly called dowu your enthusiastic plaudits. Still, I am sensible and meat grateful tor the hearty greeting you have personally awarded to me, as well as 'or the kindness I have received from the moment of my first appearance, both within and without the walls of the theatre. I shall leave this charming city with deep regret, but cherishing the hope that my good fortune will bring me back some day, to receive new marks of your cendescending favor. This is the firtt speesh from a prima donna contralto that we have ever seen. It is "neat." The very last performance of this company was given in Boston on yesterday afternoon. The artists will return to New York, and give the "Trovstors" at the Academy on Monday. At the Academy, Bellini has reigned supreme during this week, very much to the delight of the admirers of that composer. "The Puritan!" has been given twice, to full homes, and ''Norma" is announoei for Friday.

The National Council have done nothing important to day , except to admit the lx>uisiana delegates, and reject finally the Catholic set. The Committee on Platform will sit until midnight, and then be ready for the Council on Monday, when action will be had, and the slavery question will be set* tied. It will be apon the following basis;? The Nebraska bill will be allowed to stand, and ths Missouri compro mise will not be restored? in place of which all Terri tories will be settled by people who will make their own Uws, and elect all their officers, without any interference by the general government, except to appoint judges, marshals, &c , as is now done in the States of the Union.

Conduct of the Achninit(ratio? ?? The Know Nothings, dc., <tc. If Prwident Pierce flatten himnelf tha' b/Keanaof bia two papers in this city he will be able to keep froai the public the real truth aa to the cause of Mr. Perrry'a return from Madrid, he will bnd himaelf In the ead much mia taken. The story that Par rj'a totter to the President, a? pub lished in the InUUigtnctr, bad prwked Genera1 Pierce to hia recall, is a pieee of miserable fabrication, put forth to coaeeal the truth. To those acquaint?* with the President, and is his confidence, 1} is know* that the appearance of Perry'a letter gave him g-eat pleasure, and wan just the thing that he hod been wish ing to obtain aiacj the return of Mr. Soulr frem hti mission. It was kaowa to the government, and men particularly to Got. Marey. from hia private correspon dence with Mr. Perry, which he received and eacoaraged, that serious difficulties exUted between Mr. ftouli- and his Secretary, and that the latter was anxious to make public certain charges against hit chief? which could not be permitt-sd so long as be re mained io the government employ. And farther, the President was fuMr awara that Mr. Perry hal written the letter, which subsequently appeared first in this city, having himself been furnished with a copy of the- samo through the m?aw of a friend rrho had made tie acquaintance- of Perry at Madrid, by pee seating him with a letter of introduotion from General Pierce himself. It has bee* publicly stated that the bearer of this totter urged bcth the writing and publish ing of the letter, and that he- advised Mr. Perry to col lect all the fact* he could get together, for dm hereaf ter. The report that Mr. Perry was recalled in disgrace, I repeat, is net true, as will be mtfle known shortly af ter his art ival in 4he United tlates, by the receipt of tome favor from the President, which he has reason to expect. Kor was he succeeded in his post until Mr. Soule's card made ids appearance, threatening exposure, when it was seen that Mr. Perry's presence was neces sary to give it such snswers as were only in hi* pjsxes mob, with occasional ai?, as migiit be necessary, from the President and Secretary Marcy. It is no wish of the government to take any open part In the threatened controversy, and without the aid of Perry it would be forced to a quiet submission to the heavy blow* which are likely to tall from the pen of Mr. foul. I repeat, that the President and Secretary of State are on friendly terms with Mr Perry, having up proved all that he has done officially and that the return of that gentleman will not, in a pecuniary pcint of view, be to his injury. Tne President flatters himself in oe lievingthat the throateaec publication of Mr Sonic will be con&ned to only such parts of his mission as is found necessary to make good bis charge* against Mr. Perry; but in this he will be mistaken, u? a friend of the ex mi nister, now in tbe city, informs nut that the publication will contain everytblngcmnected with his lite mission, even to the private correspondence which for some time was cstried on between himself and the President. A general marking down oi pernor shortly to bs re moved for their Know Nothinglsm from public offices, is tow going on, and from the number of suxpectsd peraous requiring examination, it is supposed that tbe list will not be completed for some day* to cume. A general order has been sent to tbe he* it of ail our custom houses, poet offices, &c , throughout the Inicn, enjoining tho remove 1 of all who may oe tinc tured with the doctrines of Know N'o'hingism Many, who were but a few weeks sinoe loud in their support of '?t'am," are changing s.des, but to receive in ths end a fate similar to the one that has followed the trimmer, B. U. French ? retirement. It is the common observation everywhere bear.l, that Wathington was never so dull as it is at present. Two or three of the Cabinet are travelling, and ths heads and clerks of the lower departments throughout the city are taking turns in visiting their homes, or enjoying the fresh mountain air so very plentiful in the immediate nt igbboihood of Washington.
