Tike Board a* laval (Ire as the National lnUUigeec*rv Ma; 21.) tafiiN, at Its taut session, Vy Win Bonnes, and after full debate, dlroited a Board, consisting of five officera from each of the graUee of cap *toine, commanders, ud lieutenants, to make a cartful ?uBintun into the tfficuncy of the officer* af the ?a*J Ibey in directed to report tbe strati and rank of all e Atria who, in their )udguien<, are incapable ef per forming promptly and efficiently aH their duty, bath at bare and afloat.

In either event the vacancy ia to be fitted by promotions of officer* of capooity: bat those taking the place of officer* on the reserved list, -when ceDed Into active service, are only ti receive their tenser leave pay, augmented by the difference between tbe leave and duty pay of the reserved officer*. tbe Becfsity of Hu.-h a measure ha* not been for maay t care a sutter of debate, Conereaa and the navy have conrurrrtl ou that point, tlw "llffloulty ha* boon to scene a e^hetne aliuh would at once avoid iagrati tiide to Kentonoiis officers aud seeure efficient mea fer active service, without entailing on tbe country the evils of a pension system.

Coa gie** has met thini in a spirit of equal liberality, ae ocpteo their plan for the relief of the service and tbe ettitrr, and placed in tbeir own bauds tbe executioa mt the law to promote tbe efficiency of tbe navy. The eyee ef tbe oooncry are on the proceeding* of this Board, with anxio<i* but confident nope. If it fait in Ma daty, whethrr from want of nerve or want of jn <g Mit, < r waiitof h:ne*ty, the next Congress will respoml to the national demand fer an efficient navy by some tint sharp and salutary remedy. If offioara now Sacri fice tbe country to their interests, tliey miy rsst asstir od tbe ceuotry will have small hesitation in *?erifi -iag them to vte paramount necessities of the public ser vice. Tbia ?uty, if not thoroughly performed, had as well not be attempted ; and the liberal provinons for those ftaai incapaide, without their own default, disarms tbe nasssaiw of even the least appearance of harihn*** and leaves do excuse for leniency. It is the policy and principle of this government to ap noaron the ocean with a navy not numerically equal to fenglsnd er Prance, bnt one adequate to tbe expanded commerce of the peot le, and composed of vessels of auch perfect contraction tod power, defended by armameate of snoh weight and efficieacy, and < irected by men ot each energy and tkill cf mind and body, as shall render victory tue inevitable result of any collision with an nimed fee of anything like equal rate. .Again Bt assaults from vast fleet* our forts muat de toad onr harbors . ? gainst depredations on the high seaa wo must relj upon tbe perfection and power of our ain C vessels, while many of these may be readily corn ed to meet any special emergency. to these principles, embodied in tb* men and material ?f onr navy, wo owe tbe splendors of the last war on the ocean.

The tower ranks of tbe navy are crowded by over-ap pointasenta. Men grow old before they are ealled to the active duties of command. The highest and most re oponsitl* grade of officers is almow. entirely occupied by old men. cot uierelj pa?t tbe age of active energy, but fiat on the decline of life and in many in.itaacta phy?ieal 1; Incapable o' performing the duties or their iiost. lie hind them, in tbe next grades, stand thoBe wbo are to follow tbem, now treading on their heels in point of Cra, and buie to be more incompetent than the present atubenfs before they take their pte.ee*. Bad a* the caae is sow, time, which ha* produced it, ia every day ateacily pggravating tbe evil, and, if no remely he ap plitd.

Hav ing parted forty years of tbeir lives in learning how to ?bey, tbey are ex posted In their old age to know how to command After allowing liberally for the casualties of service In ttoae of peace, these men will, if no war intervene, holl their ccmmissvcoe as post captains at the mature age ef eighty five War would materially simplify the case. Active rervW would bring relief to this Htatc of th nga by eecngaing ships and men under such guidance to ?nin and diahonor, and Congress would then *+ free to Mpply tbe place of the Naval Board by having ta build new ships, to be cotnmanleil by new m?n. It ip nonsense to invoke tbe glories of the last war, for glory is no prctection againtt gunpowder, and its In spiration, which nerves the heart at forty, serves only tor the gairuL'ty of old ago by tba fircaide at eighty. Ike men who wen there glories cannot now repeat the>r caplcta. But men of tbia generation at their age can rival them, and Congress have ordered tbe Naval Hoard to tiear the d? ck* for actisn, that tuch men ciay no', bo aaeilficed. The men of the last war who fought the na vy into favor were of the age at which now our mature peered antdahipmeD pa.-s into tbe grade of lieutenant, ibaageof those men who now comtnind the fleers of Fraace and the powerful ahtps of Britain.

But whatever be tbs means adepted, be is responsible for the efllcieney of hU tost mine nts. Congress have aided hi* judgment by ?ivlag h'm tbe benefit of the Inquevt by the Hoard.

Heyoad this they have nc duty, no right, and no responsibility. K tbe Beard find all the offigersocmpetont for all their titles, Congress snd the people will be very proud of the tenacity of American nerve and sinew, and think the ttetnee of live oak has permeated from one hulk to an other; but tbey must so teport, and then no ohange is ??ee ted, and nobody is b urt or benefitted : but if thete to sny officer incompetent to discharge all his duties, then thry must so report. * hat fellows on their report the law does tbrongh the President. If be disapproves the report, then It ia of no eflact, and no change ia produced; If he in Hia coascieaoe thinks it ought to be approved, he will a 3 approve it. We shall then have the ooocurrent opinion of the Presi dent and the Board that certain officer* liable to be charged with th* maintenance of Amenoan honor, the protection of American interests, tbe defence of the country by American blood, are laeorapetert to perform those antics. If this be the feet, wfco is so siUy as to aca that snrh interests be confided to such keeping t Congress decided the matter in aonordanoe with com mon rense. Ihey have reeolved that men so (acorn pe t en' stall be relieved from tbe duties of active service, and others who are ootnpcteat shall be promoted In their places. In the eye of the conntry the first thing Is that A me rtran '-amen and officers shall not he sacrificed bv in competent commands. To this everything Is subordi nate, and for this tbe Board was created. How Indlvi duals may be affected, whether the country have treat ed he roe f ungratefully or net, ia none of their business. They are charged to see that lives of American seamen and the higher life of American honor bo neither thrown ?way nor jeoparded by hands of whose competency tbey an not convinced. If Deeatur were alive, bnt blind, or ? paralytic, er deaf or dnmb, or so feeble as to be unable to encounter the hardships of a srulse. It would be their dntv to say so, and leave the country to take oars of fh? Mro while supplying his place.

It couid not be open without excising to injury characters Whose fitness was questioued, but approved.

The characters and responsibili ties of the officers are a guarantee of the fa.tbtul per torn urce of their duty, and publicity would only create a combined eliort sm- ng those impeached to protect eaoh other by destroying the work of the Board. One obierratlon remains Congress has allowed cap tains alone to pass on captain*. The other ??moari of the Board will be present and witness their proeeedings, but without power to affect the result, rbe inoiirereuce, not to say hostility, wMch has b>en exhibited very generally by thlB grade of officers to this great measure of ref Dim has, it cannot be denied, created soma misgiv ings ir and outer the navy as to the course whlcu might be pursued by the representatives of this grade on tbe Board; but ttese misgiving*) have doubtless arisen more Irrm the peculiar organization of the Board, th* law vi?tng such paramount pow?r in five of tbe fifteen numbers composing it, than from nny doubt in the high integrity and sense of duty of tfce captains likely to be selected. We will not entertain the shadow of a doubt that 1 hey will execute the stern but imperative duty required by Congress in a manner altogetner consistent with the highest honor known to the naval profession Should it be otherwise the whole proceeding will bs a failure; but fortunately the reascn of the failure will be as apparent as the fact, and Congress will know how to apply tbe re?edy; and s' ould it find that any grade baa no stomach for exercising discipline over ft# fellows, Cotgress m'ght think It worth whi'e to try the sharper appetite of their juniors, whose interests will coincide wi'.li their duty. Congress has, however, confided to the high sense of duty of the officers of tfee navy the interests of the country. Cangress has provided active service and higher rank for the young and aspiring; ease, honorable retirement and undiminished pay for the faithful and worthy who have become worn out in the public ser vice. And, ia order that this may be done without any additional call upon the public treasury, tbe younger officers of the navy are ready to perform tbe more re sponsible duties of higher rank without demanding the full pay of the rank, an?l the country .ooks to the navy to reform itself; but reformed it must be. Tb# 1'nited States will encounter no such disaster from neflecta* bas destroyed the KngUsh army before jabaa topol. They will not stake the national safety or honor on the iasne of a combat between youth and age, energy and decrepitude, science anl routine They wi'l place on the water the beat aimaoents in the world, man them with the beat hearts her citizens can produoe. and then cor.flf!ent)y abide the issue. The Naval Board is chargrd to scrutinize the men of the navy; to name those unfit for every exigency of ac tive service. The Tietldent is directed to remove s-iih as are so designated frcm the active service list. If tbe H. atd fail in if* duty, Congress will find a remedy and a mode of executing it. More than one radical measure of r?form baa been proposed ? four year appo ntmnnts, vacating a 1 commissions, and th? like, the moderation of the peop'e, of the majorities in Congress, and laiti in the h'gb-minded honor of naval officers, have prevented eucL rash courses. But, If Congress see that they not only rave among them men who are inefficient, but al>o that tbe whole bo<5y is infected so as to be incapable of anplyirg a reim dy, they will find a short cut to the con clusion that there is little of tVe olt scaterial worth pre set vtng.

The modsrados, a* well aa the apostollcals, with the King? or the husband af the Qneen? at their head, loet no opportunity of creating difficulties. Many eitiea directed memorials lo the Queen, asking her to withheld her consent; aa.1 ttw Cardinal Arrbblsbop of Toledo, chief of the abovemsn tioaed conspiracy, and member of the lecret society of the Exterminating Angel, made a harsh aad fierce re precentation against the ?aid law. 80 things went on. It was necessary for the government to find out the opinion of the Qusen touching her approbation, and with tbis inte ntion the Gen Duke de la Victoria prsmm'.sd himself on the 29th at Aranjuez and had an au liease with the Queen, finding her very much opposed to giving tbe required sanction. In thia state of affairs the entire Ministry addrssesd themielvea to her Majesty , and General O'Donnolleu tersd tint to speak to the Queeo. Flud-.ng her so strongly opposed, he pictured to her the an I a whioh her resistance wonld eau*e to the country : that if ?he refuted, the Ministry would resign; ha called npoo her to ltfleet, also, that this country was still in a revolutionary state; that *he would loie more than any one by tbe publie agitation? not to forget what happened to Charles the tenth for not withdrawing hi* decree* ? and in tbe last pUse. that if he, as a general at the head of a confiding army, were an ambitious men, he would counsel her not to sign it, because he would be aura to triumph ; but that lie spake for her good, and asked her for this reason not to withhold ber sanction, for that it would not be aiffl cult, ia case of her refusal, for the princ**s to be proclaimed Queen, with a regensy, ana that she would be *et aside. By all these reason* the mind of the Quean? powerfully agitated for a Ion* time past by tha secret suggestion* of the modendos and tbe spot to Ileal party, and worked upon by the per sistence of her own huaband? remained for tome tins undecided, but at length she yielded and said that she would sign it. O'Donnell left her, and waited with the commission of the Cortes who had bronght the law, for *ome time, m the ante' room, expecting to be called for the signature but time pasred, and the ministers ware not called. Im.' patience and doubt began to disturb their min.'.i, when a person of rank came ont of tha Queen'* apartment* and told them that thing* were not progressing favora biy- that the King had just entered and had succeeded in agitating her Majesty so that the would probably re fuse; but, ai the same time, ihat various persons of her Majesty's service, who were present, had Had the hold nths to mamiest to her Msjesty that sue had pledged her royal word, and could not withdraw it wit aout giving rite to great tcandal, 4c. She then sanctioned it. hhorily after two of the gentlemen in w.iting to the King began to make use of some scandalous expressions it the palace? one nam-d NewUnd and the other I? uero ?saying that her Majesty bad been forced to sign under duress, which is false; and they coutinueo speaking in such a manner against the ministry that General Ecbague, chief governor of the paJace, informed O'Uun lell of what was going cn, and the ministers agreed amongst themselves to request tbe King to dismiss these two gentlemen, ana that they should b? confined? one in Burgo.t and the other in Majorca The Queen did nit oppose It; but when the Kiug heard the request be be came liir'ous and said he would not consent to it. General Febague being charged with their arrest, went to the palace; tha King, npoa seeing him, seized him rudely by the hand, and draw ing him into one of the apartmen'a, thow?d bim Kuero guarded by a file of halbardler*, and laid to him that to take that gentleman, it wa* no cteiary to pars tho. e halberds. Ine General left the r<om. tluebee. with anger, and direr.tel himself to ths ? lartutDta or tboQuten, the King following him.

The Industrial KeJiihtfvm? Anniversary of the Dcvth of Napoleon I. llsnori's trial foi h's attempt on the llfa of the Em peror, took place yesterday, and terminated i? his con viction of tha erlme of parricide, which condemns hi as to walk bare footed to tbe place of execution, with a linen shirt covering hi* clothe* and a black veil over his face. The Court of Aaalzes wa* devoted to the proceedings, and, as might be expected, crowded to exoees. Ths prisoner, though he represented himself as twenty eight I jears af age, had all the appearaneo of five and thirty, j His features were stronglj lined, his complexion at onee swarthy and rouge, and over his whole physiognomy plajed a sardonic smile which indicated a man at bay, hopeless of mercy, aad prepared to bear all without wlseing. The indictment may be said to have been perfectly sustained, which represented him aa a soldier in tbe In surrectionary army of Italy la 1848; aa soiling to Mar seille* In 1864, and anbaequently to Paris, nader the name of Iiverani, working at tba trade ef shoeasaklag; alter which, as going to London last December. In March, 1866, he returns, well clothed, with ample funda, aad careless about work. In hi* poshes lion is a double |

barrelled pistol, of English sianufacture, for whioh be admits having paid 160 francs, and can give no account how he obtained these funda, except by stating that I tney were the proceeds of his earnings at the boot and aboe trade in London, in whlob he obtained a weekly salary of Ut francs, though he does out reoollsct the name of bis employ sr, nor the street ia which he lived. Ths interrogatories put to the prisoner concern ing tbe attempt made by bin on Saturday, the 20th of April, so entirely established ths narrative, I, as any eye witness, gave jou last weak, that It is ?nnsc*esary for me to allude to them. The only motive be chn?e te ad mit was tbe sufferings be had endured on the failure of tbe Homan revolt-a failure which be understood ws* attributable to tbe Es?peror of the French. Thersfore It was tbat "withoat pre meditation exactly, while strolling In the Chair pa Elys.-ea, and seeing the people tane oir their bat- to a person whom he presumed to he the Kmperor, having throe pistols properly loaded with ball about him, besides a poignard snd a newly sharpened r*;oT, ha shot at hi* Msjf*ty one barrel be admits, but if two be doe* not recollect." HI* replle* were given throughout with a sort of devil- may care nonchalance, and on heating his sentence be did not display ths slightest emotion.

Cc njeetura is now rife whether Napoleon will suffer tbe law to take it* proper eoarse, or interpose tbat clsmeney which is his jffoat characteristic. It Is possi ble tba* much will depend on the prlsoasr. or rather convict, himself. At present the inference is clear that he is the hired instrument of other*, theiugb to what ex t?it be himself may n>t be aware; but he ha* made ao rertlaBons. lbe a* t oral lave ef life may induce his* te ?a be a clean breast of U, and a voyage *?

The af fect produced by this foul attempt, in opsn day, caanot be exaatly measured . On the ana hand, it has drawn toward* the Emper*r his firm adherents in town an> country, and gives rise to an outburst of loyalty at vari ance with the ? neral character of tha people, bat *n the more gratif) ing to the object of it; and the Bm'^ror and tbe empress cannot new show themselves In '^ubMe, visit the theatres, tha Palais da l'Industrta, ar 'th, noU da B?ulogne, without large erowla hanging m th-lr chariot wheels and maaing tha air rear with entbusiaitic cries of sympathy and affeef ,0B.

The Legislature went off the first part of the week, very quietly, after a lively session of more than four m< nth* and a half, which would have been without muah trouble in its course, if the members had had the saga city to let the nunneries alone. Since Henry Vlil.'s tiae, gentlemen in power have made little eut ef inter vtntion with that cJaf* of peculiar institut on*. An I in end to devote my next letter to an accennt of the state at political affairs as they stand here at this time, when the first legislature of the American party'* e.ec tint has just broken up, I wM pa** over all criticisms en the doings of the legislator# for the present. The CeU no i nation of the temperance party to do seme thing tbat shall show tbat the new law is a very different aflair frim the old one, has led to some important ac tion, indicative of a disposition to deal summarily with great dealers In liquors. At the anti liquor law meeting last Monday nitbt, one ef the speakers asked liow it would seem to have such men as Moses Williams, Paran Stevens, and Harvey D. Parker arrested, and so forth, fhe ten peiance mtn, as if bent upon giviog a prnjtlcal answer to this pertinent questioa, caused these gentle men, with seme others of soaroely inferior rank in the trade, to be complained of, and taken before the police oourt. This was done yesterday, but ?he trials wtie postponed until next Tuesday, till juid thev go against the defendants, appeal* will be taken, und tl.e qieetion of tbe constitutionality of the law b brought to an early teet. The namea of Mr. Cboate and fcidm v liar lie tt and other eminent lawyers, are already asfcociated with the cause of the defendants Mr. Williams 1. repot ed to hare sent a letter to the Major reque.t irg that the force of the law might be fli si tried at bia 1 According to a ?tory that i* eurrent, the liquor deal ers have resolved that they will not sell any liquor to tbe State agent, Mr. Mans Held, just appointed. U is said that the agent calculates that the profits of the place will be $14,000 per annum, but another tempo iance gentleman, who ex pecteo to get the office at one time, and who probably cyphered out all the detail* in anticipation of success, like Mr. Alnascuir, of ilagdad, say* that it will not yield above $7,000.

IMPORTANT CHATTEL MORTGAGE CASE. Before Judge Green and a Jury. Mat 2 t.?Sli West against Thomas McItUyre and Benja min J. Carr. ? An action to recover $100 damage* for unlawfully taking and detaining furniture, the alleged property of ib* plaintiff, of the value of that sam. Ibe defendant* in their answer deny that the plalatifT I was the owner of the property in question, bat say that one Wm. H. Chester was the owner, and in pxiesaisn of ib* troperty, and that the defendant, Melntyre, recov ered a judgment against him. and issued an oxe:utioa which was plsced ia the hands of bis co defendant, Carr, constable, to be served accoroing to law; that said Oarr. by virtue of said execution, levied upon aad said laid furniture. Tbe plaintiff read in evidence a chattel saort gags which had been died in th* Kagiatar's offiee, cover ing th* prop?rty in question; and th*n call* defendant Carr a* a witness, who swore that he was a ooastable, aad that, bv virtue of th* execution in favor of hi* co d*f*ncant, he levied and sold the goods in question; thst when be levied oo them, they were la th* po*s*s*ioa of Chester. The plaintiff then proved by another witnesa that the nonstable waa notified of the mortgage before the sale of hi* lien, and also notified that the goods w?-re sold by the constable for 96W; and there the plaia titT's counsel rested bis case. The def^adaat's counsel n oved lor a nonsuit on the following grounds : ? 1st. 1 bat there was no evidence to show why Cheater con tinued in possesiion of the property mortgaged; that such poetessioa being unexplained, waa conclusive evi dence of Iraud a* against judgment creditors, and that ther* 1* no question of tact to be submitted to a jury; coLiequently it la the duty of the Court to nonaait. 2d Tbat the constable had a right to Mil th* property in question; the purchaser would receive Merely tbe right, title and interest of Chester, the mortgager. Tie Judge graated the motioa oa beta ground* taken by th* defendant's counsel, and referred to the case of Hill vs. Carnley, 1 Kenans R, p. 601, in which the Coort of Appeals ruled that the officer making the seixura and sale ia not liable to the mortgagee, although be sell tbe property generally without in any way re cog nixing the lien of the mortgagee, and he deliver pos session to ths purctaaer ; the Court, In that case, say " the mortgsgee w. uld aet be deprived of Hi* interest wbich did net recognise th* mortgage, a or would the purchaser, under suoh aale, acquire anything more than tba istereat which was bound oy the execution, to wit : the right of the mortgager t? the poeaessioa, aad the equity of redemption " This is a caae in point, aad 1 must, therefore, a< asult tke plaintiff.
