Gxttlbiskn?The President bee '? eaused yon to be Aaermnled" with a view to cairr into execution an *c. approved February J?? 18S\ entitled " An act to pro J??te the efficiency of the navy." The lev directe thu 10 be performed under such regulation* ee (bell be prescribed by the Secretarj of the Nery " , , . ... Your path of duty la marked out eo plainly, and with Much dlatinctneee, by the language of the statute, a* to poahh jou to advance unemiarraesed with technical questions, and nndlaturbed by olfiieultiea, save tboee necessarily Incident to the delicate and responsible teak pf paeeing upon the relatire merit and Incapacity of Officers attached to your own honorable branch of the public service. In prescribing regulation! 1 hball en dearer te be very brief and coneiM, in order to avoid trammelling your deliberation* by n multitude of rules, Often more calcolated to confuse than to direct. Reposing confidence in jour Integrity and intelligence; persuaded of yonr competency to discriminate with j us Aice, becauie of your experience and your personal and official association with your brother officers; entertain ing no doubt of your having the independence to dis charge your dnty with fidelity and steadiness of purpose, however delicate or painful. I have an abiding faith that the honor and reputation of the service will be safe In your hands, and that I need not indulge In elaborate ar S anient or appeals to your pride as officers and patriot, im as citizens, to o?-operate in causing the standard of capacity in the American navy to be maintained at an alevation commanding the confidence and respect of the country. Considerate etatesmeu loos to the ocean at the Iheatre on which future national conflicts are, to a luge patent, to be settled, and the commerce of tne country regards the navy not merely as a friendly ally, but a pure protector. Our wonder. nl expansion as a nation, the necessary multiplication of grave questions with dis tant foreign Power*, and our wide spread commerce, have attracted, with greatly increased concern, the at tention of the legislative and executive departments of government to the condition of tbe navy, and the impor tance of securing vigor, energy, and capacity in its per ianal In order the more eUectually to attain that ob ]eet, and yet not do injurtice from haste or igooraoce, Congress has authorized th? assembling of a board of offi cers, whose duties shall be merely of an advisory nature, and as an aid to the Executive in promoting " the efficiency" of the navy. The Executive has appointed yon under that law, and it now becomes your duty to make a "careful examination," and report in pursuance Hereof. And here, gentlemen, allow me to invite your Attentioh to the searching language of the law. Tne law requires capacity; but it stops not here, for it muit be a capacity to perform "all duty"?"ashore and afloat." Bat it stops not here, for it le not content with a mere capacity to perform duty, but demuids that it shall be done, not merely "promptly," but "efficiently." The law, therelore, has fixed the test. You aro as an advi pory board to assist in snforcing it Your own sound common senss and acquaintance with the duties of an Officer will guide you to the true practical interpretation of this. Efficiency, efficiency?that is what is requised. Inefficiency, inefficiency?that is what is to be withdrawn in order to "promote" the efficient Neither the law por the country asks for anything unreasonable, in ex am icing as to who are "incapable of performing their ayhole duty both ashore and afloat," I need hardly sug gest to you that an officer may he "incapable" either mentally, physically or morally, for although he may possess a strong mind and robust frame, yet if hlo moral perception or right and wrong be so blunted and debased as to render him unreliable, he could hardly be ranked as the capable officer, to be intrusted with the lives of his countrymen and the property and honor of his country. Yon will perceive that there are two distlnot classes, Bnd that one of those classes in t ub dlvidsd. You are re quired to report me names of offioers who should he, in vour judgment, plagpd pn the "reserved list," end then designate those of the **?.,erved" who, in your opinion, tor service rendered and fo? fidelity in the discharge of duty, should receive full "leave of absence" pay, and those who should merely receive furlough or half "leave pf absence" pey. You nre required to advance a step farther in your examination and discrimination, and report the names of such officers as you "believe" have become incompe lent "from any cause implying sufficient blame on tbe part af the officers to justify" yonr recommending them so "be stricken altogether from the rolls " And on this point I venture to suggest the opinion that an officer ia zo "blame if be has become Incompetent from neglect Of duty and inattcnti in and indifference to his profes plon, as well as from dissipation and immoral indul gences." I (ear a mlapprehension may exist in the minds of pome in regard to the position before the country of of ficers placed on tbe reserved list, with full leave of ab pence pay. it ia bo degradation; It is rather a high com pliment. The pay is liberal and amply sufficient to the comfortable support of the oflioer and bis family. Indeed, It is the generous act of a government say ing to the meritorious officer, " you nave served with fidelity, and now, as you have become incompetent to the severe duties of naval life, you can rest from the labors of your profession without care or anxiety as to your support, as we have provided for it." Ner, gentle men, do 1 consider that it will be necessarily a degrada tion or a mark of govermental displeasure for an officer to be placed on fnriough, whleh is half ltave-of absence pay, because he may have become really incom Jstent to the discharge of his datlee, and yet may not ava served so long and faithfnUy and with such credit ns to entitle him to the highest compensation to the re ceived. _ According to my conoeptlona of the spirit of this law ?nd justice to officers and the government, the standard of merit and services should be high to enable an officer to fee placed on the reserved list with full leava-of abssnoe n question having arisen as to the true interpretation Bf the proviso to the first section, the opinion of the xhtifX7wSg,1iteie<1UMt#d' from ?hloh 1 " I think, therefore, that the effect of the proviso is to require the hoerd to be subdivided in theprooessof it* action, and to make three dlstinet sub-reports, which together shell constitute the general report. That Is to say, the entire body will sit together, de liberate and determine, and by proper means authenti cate their conclusion as to lieutenants, matters, and passed midshipmen: after that the lieutenants will feave to retire, and the eaptaina end oommaiders will net in regard te all officers of the rank of eommander: whea tbe commanders mast retire, and the captains will net ns to officers of that rank. All the examinations having thus been made, and tbe proper judgments reached, in the manner contemplated by the law, the cum total ot the opinio*a will be certified to the Secre tary in euch form of authentication as he. In his regu lations, shall see fit to prescribe. The records and fllea of this department are at your pervioe, and shall be freely submitted to you to assist in your " examination " I esteem it but proper to say to you that, not with i standing every effort to avoid them, both my predeces sors and myself may have committed mistake* in issu ing orders to officers who, " m the judgment of the Board," msy not be competent according to the spirit and meaning of tbe law. You will not allow such caies, If there be any, to oeuse yon tbe slightest embarass ment. A calm, conciliatory spirit in your deliberations will do much to prevent disoord, Irritation, and heart burnings. Ail that you are expected to do is to contri bute your opinion, your judgment, to aid the Executive, nnder the provisions of this liberal statute, in relieving the service of the Inefficient, and thereby " promote the efficiency of the navy." I transmit herewith, for the Information of the Board, copies of the act under which it is convened. 1. You wt 1 therefore assemble, deliberate, and deter tnine, after a "careful examination" in pursuance of the law as to passed midshipmen, masters, and lieute nants, daring which deliberation tbe junior lieutenant | will set as the secretary of tbe board. Whareupon the 1 aald secretary will make a record, in the nature of n sub-report, of "the judgment of the board" as to each prude, separately, and, after certifying to it* correct . % nee*, shall deliver tbe same to the senior officer, who ?ball attest it; and the lieutenants will then retire, but pot consider themselves s* detached from duty. 1. After the retirement of tbe lieutenants, the cap tains and commanders will assemble, deliberate, an l determine, after a "careful examination" ia pursuance of the law as to commanders, during which deliberation the junior commander will act as secretary.

They were accompanied by Sholton's brae* band? Grafuia, leader. On the ariival of the train the Gearl were received with cheer* by the crowd aaeemhled, and on eat mag the depot they were received ly C. Dor win, Esq .Lotted States Oonsul, who presto ted the following address to Captain Ferti*:? Bm?I have great satisfaction in availing myealf of this opportunity of meeting you, jnet on the eve of your entrnnoe with your gallant oorps into the city of Moa tied, the commercial metropolis of British North Ame rica, as it affords me much pleaeure to be tne instru ment. by virtu* of tbe office I have the honor to hold, of Introducing yourself and company to the Mayor, Aldermen end citizens ef Montreal. I beg to nasuru ion, air. moat emphatically, that you will receive at their handa, on your landing upon yon pleeaant shore, n most cordial reception and a hearty weloome. Permit me, air, to eay that, although the city of Montreal, in comparison with your great city?the metropolis of the Western hemisphere?is bat Insignificant, eUll there are many thiega there that are highly interesting and novel to the passing etranger. The wharves and docae, the magnificent banking houses and market house, with the City Hall, Mechanics' Institute, French Catnedral, antiquated nunnerisa, with their thousand inmates, with mtny other public edifices, will bear n favorable comparison with the buildings of your own great city. All of them, I have much pleaeure to in form yon, will be most cordially and chsirfnlly thrown open to your view by the citizens of Moa trenl, who, without distinction of race, creed, or ori gin, are proverbial for their courtesy and urbanity to strangers. In concluaien, I venture to hope that your visit nere, and your whole excursion, may piove as pleasant and satisfactory to yourself and company, as I am sure it will be gratifying and acceptable to the inha bitants of the city of Montreal. C. PORWIN, United States Consul. To which Captain Kerns replied:? Mr Dorwix?I have the honor, as the head of my company, to ailute you, as Consul of the United States, and it affords me great gratification in doing *o to state that you are of all men the very one whom we ooula have wished to see first on oar landing. We come from onr own soil into a strange land. We are among stran gers and behold strange flags fisting above us and ase strange faces around us, yet we are welcomed as warm ly by the citizens as If we had known them a life-time. I hope the time will come wlipn. under the new organi zation, Montreal will have her citizen soldiery also who will visit New York, and I assure you, great as that city is, it would be too small to held them, so warm would their welcome be. The compsny then embarked on board the fine ferry steamer Iron Duke, which soon brought them to tho Montreal shore. Hero the Mayor was in waiting to re ceive them, with several members or the City Council, among whom we noticed Aldermen B.unsdon, Atwnter, Whitney, M P. P., and Homier; and Councillors Lyman, Day, Ryan, & Masson, D. Maason, MeGrath. Thompson, and Browne. Having gone on board and having been Introduced to the officers of the company, they took them in their carriage* through the principal streets, the guards and an eacort of the Montreal Cavalry fol lowing. The city and the water police were drawn up upon tbe wharf also to receive them, nndar the oom mand of Col. Ermatinger and Capt. Hayes. A large crowd was gathered at the wharves and in the streets te see the foreign soldiers. A long line of flags stretched across the Custom House square, from tbe Montreal House (the bead quarters of tbe Guard) to the ware houses opposite At the Ottawa Hotel, Great dt James street, the American flag was displayed, and at Dolly's and tha Metropolitan the flags of England, France and the United States were suspended acroes the streets. After marching through several of the principal streets, the party proceeded to the City Hall, where, in addition to the members of the City Council already mentioned, we noticed J. Papin, Esq.. M. P. P.; T. J. l.oranger, Eiq., M. P. P ; J. DeWltt, Esq., M. P. P.; O. Berthelot, Esq , Bon. Mr. Bourrst, Recorder; J. P. Sexton, Esq., City Clerk, end others. The Guards and the Montreal Cavalry having been formed in line in the City Concert Hall, the Mayor presented tbe following address :? Captain Fxkkis :?Sir : On behalf of the inhabitants of Montreal, I beg to tender you a most oordial welcome to our city, and trust that your visit to this place will be as agreeable to you and your gallant and highly re spectable corps, as I know it is most gratifying to our citizens. Such interchanges of civilities are conducive to the cultivation of the best and most friendly feelings between people as Intimately connect* d as wc are by our geographical position, and oar resources and produc tions, and to a greater extent entertaining the same pre dilections. In the wisdom of the Infinite Providence, it would appear to be ordained that men shall live in communities, and be, in a great measure, depen dent upon the countenance and labots of each other. Wc are then only acting In obedience to all- wise precept and beheet, when we manifest a kind and bro therly sentiment towards one another. But bee ides the elcseness of our neighborhood and the dally business re lations which necesssrlly result from It, there are other reasons why we should live in tbe bonds uf friend ship, and entsrtain the utmost mutual good will. This arises frcm the fact that the dwellers on both aides of tne line 45 deg , (an arbitrary one.) owe their origin to one common stock. The unhappy differences which have arisen .during the political existence of both nations, seem to be inseparable from all human Institutions; but hlstorv fcarcely affords an instance wherein so much good has resulted equally to the benefit of all the parties concerned. Good sense, sound judgment, and a truly patriotic and Chrlatlan feeling bid us to bury in oblivion certain events, tbe more especially as they will not, from the vcrv nature of things, ever again recur. And whtlat we are living as different people under different govern ments, yet should the ties and reoollections of tha fatherland ever be cherished with affeotion and entbnsi asas, and although we nave Just reason to exult In our orl fin, we may, at the same time, boast without egotism that he land of our sires can have no ground to be ashamed of their descendants in the Ntw World, who must always entertain the most lively interest in any contest for poli tical freedom and ho man enlightenment in which we may be engaged, and most fervently wish them " God speed!" You have come ameng na with all "the pride and circumstance" of martial bearing, one which is so characteristic of the energy and seal of "Americans." This is wise, for freemen should ever be prepared to grapple with internal or external difficulties and foes. But that your happy and magnificent country as well as our own, which isjust emerging from its infancy, may long, very long, be spared from entering upon any other than holiday campaigns, is, I can assure you all, the fervent wish and prayer of every Canadian. WOLFRED NELSON, Mayor. To this address Capt. Ferris replied Mr. Mayor, Gentlemen of the Corporation, and Citizens of Montreal,?On behlf of my corps I thank you all for the kind and unexpected, and I may say, to myself, un precedented welcome extended to ue by the citizens of Monties), high and low, rich and poor, alike. He had felt seme doubt about their reoeption, as they ware the first corps of American militia which had ever entered Canada on a similar errand. He might mention, what he had not Intended to do, that the people of Montreal who imagined they were welcoming such a carps last year were mistaken. The Guards had tbe honor to b* the first corps of American militia thus welcomed. Why should there not be such an interchange of hospitable greeting*? They were all one race?the Anglo Saxen blood ran in all their veins? the blood of a race which, happen wliat might, was des tined to absorb and override all other* upon the earth. Recent legislation tended to promote theee feelings of mutual good-will, and to extend the Intercourse between the two connti iee. The Reciprocity treaty now permitted them to interchange their pr oducts free of duty; but he prayed Canadians not to allow their expounders of tbe treaty to be so sharp as to tax the parcels in which they (the Americans) sent their goole. If they eent them flour, they ctight not to tax the barrels; If they sent them eggs, they ocgbt not te tax the ehelle; or If ap ples, they should not tax their skint. They (Ameri cans) had been trying free trade in some matters, and every step tbey made in that direction had tended to tbeir benefit, had been so much gained over old fog) ism. He could not detain them longer. Hie men were somewhat fatigued with their march ing; in fact, their friends generally gave them enough of thet, but he could assure them of one thing?that, if they could usa them up in march they could not over-match them In cordiality or good fellowihip. He was happy to see the Montreal Cavalry there in their neat, simple uniform?a uniform well calculated fur service. He hoped that under the new militia organization In Canada, the people would come to learn now it was that men of wealth and poei tion went Into the raake end bandied tha musket, and were proud to do ao; and become so attached to their corps that, like one of hie men, they would weep with vexation to bo absent from any ef their excursions; that man, however, was with them nevertheless. They bad a standing army to protect their borders and snforce the laws?the Unite J States had none, but aha had en effi cient citizen soldiery, whose motto was, whatever the lswe might be; "Obey end enforce tbe law." Again he thanked them for the kindness of their reception. The Captain concluded amid loud checra. The Major claimed one word. Captain Ferris bad male allusion to the duty on package*. Be wa* happy to Inform him that news had been received in town yea terday of its abolition. (Cheers.) The company then passed into the City Hall, tbe bend of tb^ufird* playing "God save the Queen."

Fix his, on behalf of the Mow York Guards, then replied Tbe distinguished and flattering reception with which yeu have taouglit fit to honor as on this occsion cells for our heartiest thanks. lnd?ed, T may any that I ova hardly express to you our gratitude for the honor ol this public demons'ration in our be half. It is with gr*at pride and Satisfaction that wa re ceive these fraternal assurances of regard and sympathy at the hands of the Nee England Society ef Montreal, and the undeniable Importance and vidue of su-.h asso ciations is here abundantly testified; for it la ths pride of the descendants of our Pilgrim F ethers to beast that the principles imanatiag from that little hand that alighted en Plymouth Rock hove extended their reform ing and salutary influence over every part o' this continent, from flan Francisco to the Stats of Mains. Those who are not of tho New England Society and who have favored us with their pre sence, will, I am sure, appreciate the patri 01 ic feelings which such an occasion calls forth. When I think of the astonishing and unexpect ed heartiness of your greeting*, both civic and military, all tiring with each other In tendering to us so prjud ar <f*h. any a welcome, b# assured, gentlemen, that it will remain an Imperishable record on our hearts ot ygur good sympathy and fellowship. For myself, I f rire itaa one or ths brightest periods of my existence, t is true that in our own cities of New kork, llostoo, Providence, and further South, such demonstrations amongst onrielvea are not uncommon. The present, bawever, Is an occasion that occurs but seldom. To find ouaeelves In a strange land, and yet amongst breth ren?1 say this strange, but p easing fact, may seem in comprehensible; but yet. as our preaent meeting proves, how natural and cordial are the rslatiens that bind us. Allow, me, la conclusion, ia tbe name of my fellow oflloerH aad the City Guard, to thank you cordially for the handsome manner of our reception; and the kind in vitation to 'accompany the members of the society on the excursion which Is proposed around your beautiful mountain and neighborhood?a treat which I have my self enjoyed on a former occasion, in a more private capacity, and which I can promise my colleagues much pleasure from. The Guards then having exchanged their full dpeu for their neat blue undresn uniform, a cavalcade of dome forty or fifty carriages was formed, and tat off for a drive around the Mountain. After their return from thair drive, they dined to gether at the Montreal House, and at half past eight o'clock marched with their band to the Theatre Royal to witness Mr. Blake's admirable impersonation of Sir Anthony Absolute In tbe " Rivals." The uniform of tho Guards le a white coat with red facings, blue tieuaers with a red cord, and a bear skin cap. It has somewhst the appearance of tho Austrian uniform, and is mora showy, and somewhat loss adapted to hard service than one would have expected from our very practical American cousins. The Band (Shelton's) is a very good one?numbering some 24 musicians. The Inm Major, with his tall grenadier cap, festheri and staff, almost eclipses the splendid specimens of his clsss In our own regular army. ac??. S&mSZmLV' wm ?* P"d"~a' MMMt faWvlSl1 ** M^mbU??

ML Aittr the intense apeculative excitement noticed jtkletcey, it is bat natural that there ihould have been a relapee. The oparationa today were large but considerably less than those of yetterday, and piicee in numerous instances ruled much lower. A tbe first board today, Missouri sixes advanced J ptr cent; Illinois Central, j; Nicaragua Transit, | Cnmberlsrd Coal, 1; Hudson Rsilrcad, i; Reading |.

Tss Norwalk accident cost the Nov H?vea Rdlroed Company more than three hundred thousand dol lars, causing a suspension of dividends for an ioded nite period. Every train of can that lsav? tie depot of any railroad company in the ooont-y, is linble to accidents, which may cat off dividend* for ynaia. Par, therefore, for a ten per cent dividend paying ra..road stock is all tbat it is worth as an in mtment The leading raiiroadstocks, and Camber- I lard sod Nicaragua, were active this morning. BiiL road hoods and State at :oks were comparatively quiet. Comber land sold to an unusual extent, open ing at 31 j, cash, and closing at 324, buyer eix?y | days. A very large nnuintof cash stock wss put on the market, bat it failed to depress prices. Erie opened at a decline this morning, bat partially ' recovered towards the close. We look for higher prices in this stock. It has already advanced pretty fast, but is yet a good ways behind less vain able securities. Reading was firm this morning, and sold freely at a slight improvement in muketvalne Nicaragua Trantit was in dema-.d to day. Wa as demand tbat this company havs cCared to the Pi tific Mail Steamship Company to traosport passen gere across the Isthmus of Nicaragua, from o era to noean, for fifteen dollars each, if the Pacific comoa nj's steamers will run to and fro betw?en San Juan del Bur and Ban Francisco, and make a weekly line between Nrw York and California. The Panama Railroad Company now charge twenty five dollars per bead for transporting passenger* across the lit a mos of Pasema. This arrangement would remove at once ail the difficulties existing between the two companies, and give the community a weekly con veyance to and fiom Bah Francisco.

Tl e indications are decidedly In favor of a deprecia tion of some importance, particularly In those stocks which have been so rapidly Inflated.

The Asia arrived tbe same evening, llvr ac counts cau'Sd a spirited demand on Monday, and holders succeeded ia obtaining a further advance of ^d. per pcund on the current qualities of americaa descrip tions, speculators evincing increased confidence, and purchasing largely. Tuesday'* transactions were oat eo extensive, end the market ws* lo-s buoyant; and on Wednesday there waa an evident de*ire to realis-i profits, which occasioned a pause in the inquiry, ani induced small (peculator* to sell below the previous value, which fetlieg baa gained ground as the week progressed, result ng in the loss of the advance above mentioned. Our stock doe* not diminish, but, if figures are 10 form would appear that en the let November we should be entirely bare of Americaa cotton, excepting what spinners bold, i. e. with a con tinuation ot the present scale of consumption, aad up to tfala period 'bare are no *j mptom* of its being car tailed. Rumors ef a further French loan, and u reac tion In the Continental exchanges, as well as the apathy of operators in goods and yarns to follow the course of tbia market, rising prices of grain, and the Bank not having lowered tbe rata of Interest, are rea sons assigned for the ohange apparent, which, however, ia likely to be dispelled by later American advices and more genial weather for harvest prospects. To day the salea are estimated at 12,000 bales, (0,000 to specula tors and exporter*,) the market o;o*ing with more stea li re** The total salea of the week amount to 108,320 bales, of which 73,620 are American. Speculators have taken02,930, and exporter* 2,630, leaving 42,800 biles of all kinds to the trade. The import for the same time is 50,167 biles, of which 43,972 are American. The quantity snown to be at sea from American porta ia about 82.000 halea. In Manchester apinneis are as indifferent about taking future orders for yarns as buyers are unwilling to give them out; and some manufacturers are reselling their stock of goods at available profits, rather than risk the ohance of a rise in foreign markets, which Imparts ths opinion that the trade hold a large surplus stock o' the raw material, and renders the deficiency in the porta of less importance than is generally understood. In the limned bniineea m progress, however, an advance equivalent to that in cotton has been established; but it is likely that operations will be conftnud to the pur chasing tor immediate wants till ths question of supply be solved.
