on any threatened point that no hostile force is likely to seek au encounter with us CD our own soil A small army sent upon our shores could not hope for success it is not probable that any large one will incur the risk We have therefore fear from invasion and are free from the necessity of large standing armies or fortifying against land attacks But our long coaet line Is pecxiliarly ex posed to an attack from the sea So Jong as an enemy can roach vulnerable points out exposing himself to our laud forces le may Inflict blows which we are parry and which may cause losses all to be endured No great civilized nation has more just cause than ours to look well to the condition of its coast defenses snd none since the civil war has so wholly neglected them It is a matter of congrat ulation that this National deficiency is be ginning to excite the attention it especially as thu even more than money is necessary for its preparation A modern land battery when once con structed and armed needs few repairs aad no renewals Outlays forcoast defence are investments which yield large interest in the form of insuiauce with little deteri oration to principal As the sole object of harbor fortifications is defense ite construc tion should at least keep pace with if not every other preparation forit has been well said that while we may afford to be deficient In means of offense we can not afford to be On the matter of armament the Secretary snys a satisfactory beginning has and the factory Watervliet is turning out completed steel guns and the art of modern gun making is now well inaugurated in this country On the subject of desertions the Secre tary says there was a decrease during the7 twelve months ending September 30fch of 24 per cent a compared with the previous year
