The burn i n|c of the \ttr Ironsides at League Island, lor want ot water to extinguish the flames, bas se palpably demonstrated tbennrtfnewi i f that place for the proposed .National Arsenal tor iron-clads, that the proposmou 'o e-'abub it there will probably be abandoned. '1 be Philadelpha papers state that when tbe tide went out, the Are companies abandoned the vessel to her fate, and returned to the ci:y. as there wan no water to be untamed Tbe truth is that Washington is tft^ proper point for tbe location of the iron did Jtfd, and tta fitness for the purpose would have long ago beer recognised but for the scramble tuade by parties in tbe interest ?t different localities to secure it for their own advantage, without the slightest regard fo national intereits. Tbe contest has been mainly between the advocates of J^eague Island and New London. It Is an insuperable objection to New London that the waier is salt there, aud consequently unfi' for storing iron-clad*, aud against League .island it u urged that it m.t low mod-bank in shallow water, wbere thecostof makiugsoltd foundations, even for the commencement of operations, would be enormous, and when completed it would be >n?tnbout asserviceabie as is* celebrated Memphis Navy Yard, -built wbere the ground was a liuie damp," and ever used to launch even a canoe. The Navy Yard harbor at this point has already shown its capacity and fituess for the storing of ironclads, having bad a fleet of them loca-vd here foi a long time, and tbe yard h w all the ad. juncts and appliaures required lu connestion With their disposition here. 1 he New \ork fust, while demonstratiug tbe unfitness of League Island for tbe position. errs in holding that tbe arsenal should be located upon an open ?ea front. It is an indispensable requisite that iron-clads shal be stored in fresh water, and ;bus the a-gume-nts in favor of placing navy yards upon ses-frwnts are not valid in this case. The New Yoia Herald points out tbe advantages of Washington for tbe arsenal rery conclusive, ly. as follows : 4 We have reeeived a jrreat manv communicatton?. pamphlets, and argument* on tbs subject of locating a navy-yard for building and repairing our iron-clad war vessels. Several 'bijf b^n urgea, and, ol course, very airocgly. bv the mbabitnuts, propertv-bolders and interested parties of theie i.cau'jT o^ 11148 *ci one anvtber. saying * * tie or nothing of tbe di?ad vantages. Congressmen and the authorities ot tbe Navy Itepartmeni havebe?u bored te death upon the * abject. >ew York would bs tbe best place undoubtedly, if :ue water ot our b^ys w?e not salt. Tbe cry ol liudsoa. up the North ? w*re- London wants tee yard, bu . the same objection as to salt water applies to that city as to New Vork. League Island, up the .Delaware, has the advant&g* oi lTrsh water and convenience to tue coal and iron region, but vessels ot deep draught cannot a?ceud so far up. and tbe Delaware is closed up with ice part ot tbe year. Tbe proper place is Washington city, the seat of government There is a navy yard there airtaoy vessels of tbe largest cla-s can get up the Potomac is seldom froven to Impede navlgalios, anil n is fre,h water. Beside, it is n?arty or quite aacoaveaient tothecoal and *ron regions ot Peaa>-ytvania, Marriand. and Virginia. by tbe Dalttmore aad Ohio railroad, and canal and bj no otber nennsor communicirion, as Philadelphia is to tbe mieersl regions of Pennsylvania. The gieater distance from *he aea Is also another advantage. It would b? betur protected near tbe capt*ol of the Repub i lie trom foreign enemies than eltewh^re In -very jmint of view then, aad to end the trou- ! ble ai*>ut th- matter arising from the IlVtl ! claims ol tbe diltereui places and int?rmti>(] : pariie?, tbe Government should decide atonee to locate the navy yard for iron-cladi at Washington. THE MARYLAND LLUI8LATI RE. Tbe Legislature ol Maryland meet* on Wed. nesday neat at Annapolis, and the session will no doubt he an interesting one, la consequence ot :he political cbangt-s brought about at the recent election. One ol the hrst subjeeU to engage Us attention will be tbe election of a successor to 1 nited Slates Senator Cresawell' wbote term expires on tbe ?ib of March. Many surmises are ufloat as to its probable course m reference to nbtienal ai d State questions which wtll ccme before it. Thus it (s said tba1 the Constitutional amendment will be rejected' btit that as atonement for snch action the ?bi<oiiou? Stale laws in reference to colored people will be modified, aud negro tesmnony *1 milled m the Sta?e courts. It is also stated that aM effort will be made to declare tbe last alec. t*r. lor Ma>or and City Council of Haiti more illegal and void, said election having been held n nder tbe regrstration lis'* of 1CG3, to the exclusion of tbose rejri-teri-d last fall, and that a L'ii will be introduced looking to the generni an, neety, by w hu b all those disfranchised an. O. ? il?e |?rw wioit* cl (be State ?onstitutlohfor ayn.j ati > with or participating .u the eb-llioti will be restored to their potitirol rights: but these are mere surmises, and it is not po?*ihie o fcreteil the action of any legislative bodj In ,heee dajs of politual turmoil and commotion, wben party lines are laid down one day, only o be departed from lor new onej on the next- 1 1KPCFTA.NT DECISION ON TUB TEST O kTtt ACREED TPO.N.
