The question la repeatedly and earnestly asked, "Why are not the two upper classes at this academy graduated Instantly?" Is the administration ignorant of the 1 t Ion's deficiency in accomplished drllimasters for our volunteers? The senior class has been at the academy flye years, leas two months; the second class nearly four yetrs. The last Southdra cadets have tendered their resignations, and there still remain in these two climes about eighty highly disciplined young men, perfectly competent to as sume command of any body or troops, from a squad of rocrults to a brigade of regulars- And a still more impor tant point for consideration I es la tbs fact ?h it, wi ih soarce ly half a dozen exceptions, these young gentleman are In tensely eager to volunteer their services in any capacity whatever that may tend to servo the cause of tholr co - ? try, and, liko tho rest of their countryman, would work with all the vigor that youtbrul energy Insplrid by a nqble cause can dcvelope They ans both Impatient and indignant at.bolcg low restrained in inglorious Inactivity, at tho very moment that an opportunity is afforded them of rerving efiectually a government t> wh * they owo ail that they are. ' The "(Dior class should be graduated and commissioned without a moment s 'inntceesary delay. The second class hould have every superfluous branch ?.f>tudy in thoir emalnicg course eliminated ? th' no exclusively military being alone retained? acd be sent tj duty at the earliest possible mernent. lbe professors have unanimously agTwd that tho first c'ajs could s?My be graduated in twenty four hour*. and tho second in two months moro. 80 highly are Weft Potnt graduHtcn apprecitted am o n* our adversaries thst Jeffernon Davis is offering them every Inducement to enliit In hia oau?e. No price seen to him too high to pay for their services, lie Is himself a graduate, an?i can therefore properiv estimate their value Even those cadets who have resigned from the lowest classes ha\e received tho commissions of lieutc*. and captain iu the rebel army. Ihe presence of these eighty young mon among our un <Mfcipllncd soldiery would then bo an acquisition of incal culsble value; and It cannot be too fo-cioiy urged upon the attention or the Secretary of War ho* important it is that the nation should have the immediate and rull bene fit of their services. THE STUDENTS AT WE3T POINT EAGER FOR ACTION. TO TIIE EDITOR OF THE I1ERALD. Wast IVjwt, N. Y., tpril 28, imi Our country Is in daugef ! Volunteers are being called out by tens of thousands! llrave hearts ire mailing with praiseworthy ardor to enroll themselves under the stars and Stripes to maintain the dignity aud honor cf our government. That government calls for soldiers. One hundred thousand have been called for, In addition to the seventy five thousand already askei. We want soldiers, and not an unorganized mob. The more perfect th?ir drill and discipline the greater service they can do. The Se;ro tary of Warfeems toforget that w haveamllitary aeade my? that there are three classes at W est Point that woul-l be of great use in drilling the volunteers, and when wanted every man of them w'll be found re.idy t> do his duty on the Held of battle The flrst of the* .? three classes w<!l graduate In June The aeoond class has s'-udied every portion of tho military course except engineering, and Is proficient in everything necessary to make goodartll'erv infantry or cavalry officers It should be graduated at ence lhe third class has been at tbe academy ?hr?e years, studying practically Infantry and light artll.ery tactics. It Is proficient In the school of the soldier, and a few weeks applied to theoretical military studies would be sufficient to qualify It for the duties of infantry office's. It is impossible for men to devote themaoives t4> ery mathematics when the whole c .untrv is In sneh a slate of excitement.

Mr. Smith, who aooompanied the Twelfth regiment In the opacity of Chaplain as far as Aaaapolls, en route to the capital, preaehed on Sunday, noon and evening, In the chipel, Thlrty fourth street and Broadway. Aa the reverend gentleman was expected to give some inter- ?ting details In connection with the movement# and incidents of the gal'aut troops who left our olty last Funday week, daring thoir trip to, and their snbssqueut halt st Aiuapoile, the roim where the services were I eld was crowded to oversowing. After the preliminary Fervlcrs the preacher gave, as his text, the tairteeutb tnd part or the fourteenth v#r?es of the fourth chapter of fit her, aa follows:? Th-n Mordeoal demanded to answer Father, think not with thyself tbo.t tbou 1 Quit escape la tho King's home, ir->re than all t -e jo*s For If thou altogether hoVest " . peace at tb's time then ahall enhargetient aa<l deliverance arise to the Jew* from another place, bat tbou and thy fathei 'e bouse shall b* destroyed. The test was chosen to afcow that st this tins it was the sacred duty of nil men to declare themselves, that it would be as unaafu as it would be nnpatrto'.ie to waver, and that, 'n fact, the position of the time server or ths neutral man would not avail to shield him from danger, but would rather etitail inevitable disgrace and ignominy upon all who xh mid tako that ground, homo Interesting incidents to mark the uncertainly and precarkiusuets and ihc aluioft certain danger which at teiiicd those who strove to trim their sa 11a to every Droeze during stormy political periods were gives, not the least interesting of which was oik- connected w".h the politi cal troubles which bronght Charles I. of RngHUid to the scaffold. A certain colonel, who had been much In debted to the King for favors and benefits, deemed It bis b<at policy to simulate a dev Jtioo to tho Parliamen tary*, but, In ('o;ng an. he looked but for a position in which he hoped be wonld not come in cjoLael with tho adherents ot the King so that, la the event of the royal cause triumphing, be would meet with no condemnation. Tbuswaverlng between loyalty and disloyalty, tmagln log himself t curc in any event, be obtained from Cromwell the command of t be Isie of Wight, but to this very island did the unioriuuaM King fly. hoping protec tion from the man who thus most unexpeotoflly found h tnFrl' compelled to take side against his king There was ao i-afetj f<r the wavirer in tho distant laian i, and tbere was no tafety for any man now tn neutrality. All must declare theinselvts. There was uo half way. It was Union or disunion. The preacher gav - some account of the f? el lag of the men haltel at Annapolis when they beard that he was about returning to New York. Every cmclvable article at all calculated for the pttrpoVe was turned into a writirg desk, and every ssrap of paper was *oiz?<i ar.d used to transmit some word home. The men of the various reglmenta, ho said, were tn the best pomble spirits and ai<&imia lor the fray, which seemed it i \ liable Much of the warlike ardor in the South was due to the Ignorance of the Southern people with regard to ibe feeling In the North. Bnferrlng to th? arrest of Ceietal Hsrney, he said il was but a ruse, ai thsPresi dt ut had positive Information, for some time ptat, that It was the design of General Harney to transfer hie alle g'ancp to the ><oiiili and t<> betray bis coontr/.
