THE MONSTER IRON-CLAD BATTERY. A Formidable War !Hochln??The Great Steven* llattrrv at llobokt n?A Snrvhirt Drarriptlon of It* II nil, KukIiic*, Boilers, machinery and Armament?A Commit ter!*lliiK II* Atlup uhility to Prevent War Purposes, 4s<\, tin-. In yesterday 's Hsuau) we gave u Bnoclnct description of a novol steam battery now being eonstructol and nearly ttulshod nl Rortlentown, New Jersey, by Edwin A. ftteveuB, Esq., of Hoboken, its Inventor. When finished it will be presented to the I7ni?n government, through 6ecretary ("base, as a freo-w ill offering of its noblo donor. If a new projiose to give a synoptical description of the groat Stevons battery, Invented by the sumo party, and which, for a number of years, has been secretly construct ing ?t llohoicen. A history of this wonderful machine would no doubt bo acceptable to iho readers of the Hkkam> and the public In genoral; but for want of sufficient and exact data w? can give only that served by memory. It Is this:?About twenty yoars ago Robert L. Stevens and Edwin A Stoveus. I sqs., of this city, Invented and pro. jeclod what tboy thought an indispenxable much me for the prelection of Now York harbor. As goon as their plans wore completed tbev submit ted them to the proper federal authorities at Washington. The subject was respectfully en. lertatned, and referred to a government board then or ganir.od with reference to coast and harbor defoucea. Ths board was composed of Commodores Stewart and Perry, of the navy, and Colonels Toil-n and I'erry, of the army. It is presumed the reiiort of these gentlemen was highly favorahlo to tha Inventors of the tnacbino in question, as In 1S42, the year following, Messr.. Stevens consummated a contract, with the governmint for the immediate construction of their immense battery. The contract was a provi sional one, based upon the following farts, viz:?At that time tho steam frigates Missouri nnd Mississippi had been bmlUfor the United States Navy; but, as they were con structed without any stated sum being appropriated for their payment, their actual cost was not known until loug artor they had entered active service. In this state of affairo the government agreed with Messrs. Stovone for the latter to build the battery. provided its entire cost Would not exceed one half as much as the aggregate cost of building tho two vessels before mentioned. On theso tortns the contract was consummated. The Mis sissippi and the M ssouri cost over one million of dollars? a fact not ascertained until Messrs. Stevens had com tnenced tho construction of their battery. From the date of the contract for tins machine even tip to tho pro Bent time a veil of myslery hits boou drawn over tho origin, character, size and nppearanco of it. Som people insisted thnt the whole thing was a myth, or fu^ contract with tho government; others Insisted that waa a hexagonal platform, or batten, on tho plan of tlia mammoth derricks ?if this day; other" imagined that it was a large square tank, a battering rain, and so on, to an indeliiilto number of shapes. The gecrosy attached to tho plan and construction was highly necessary for tho pro tection of this government against the inroads and encroachments of foreign Powers. Now, when the tnyslory is UDveiled, we soo an immense war machine, combining all the beautiful lines, symmetry nnd s- -oil o' a North river steamboat, the strength of the best c n. strucled ship afloat, and a war vessel probably out rivalling the modern Iron-clad frigate, of t tie navies of Europe, and revealing the facts that in this v? nine ail tho important improvements in iron and xnachinery, which are now styled modern and ascribed to European inventors, but which In fict were made by two of our own townsmen twouty years ago, but from mutiveg of h >nor to their country, and tho contract wp'U tho federal government, have been until now withheld from tho goveinm-ut. Theso Inventions combine high steam, the screw pt opol lei , hollow and lino lines fore and aft, the Iron hull, the box or tubular bridge framing, the link motion or steam reverse gear and inclined armor. The improvements ad vane id at that early day, and not yet adoptod in the heal practice, are the two screws for rapid turning, the water armor for action, the abihty to rise rapidiy to tho surface, the use of heavy ordnance, the unlimited ltori zoiital Ur?all of the highest practical va is in the present cr In 1S43 tho a. j-I .:' >n which the vecs>| is eoa structod (at Hobnkcn) was commoner , but , u account of a change in Iho federal administration, thu interpos ing ofQolal interference, the construe'.! ,u of thu battery w as not begun until 1S61. Within tw n'.y months ? ?! tlia. time tho completion of the ship prop r ? .n ai rapluihod. The original sum furnished by tu> p.-ii-ueut was $.>00,000, in addition thereto Mrs - s. levoi have ex pended $200,000 of their own privai. funds. The cuter prise, however, was stopped by the .v.tlli of K-? ' ? rt L. Ste vens and for want of further appropria r-n-i. Five h ind'e l I thousand dollars and from four to six m inihs tinu< are ' now asked by Mr. K.dwln A. Stovens to compleio and set rraily for ge. vice t1 is formidable war mm bine, and lie 1 promises and g' u an r 'S to tho government that ihe ship shall combine the ,u..owing prlncipl s, viz ?

Cbngress at its last sessio i, in vi w of the imp inatico of this great invontion to present etii en os, appointed a committee, consisting ni Commodore r-iringli:, m. Com modore lnmann,Captain Horn in and I'hiof i.i.ginoor Stoi mus, of thu navy, and Frof. Henry, of WasUingtou, to ex amine more fully the merits of this battery, and to re port progress at the earliest day. These gentlemen hare uearty completed their investigations, and tt is presumed It will bo favorable to the immediate completion of the battery. Wo will now give a brief description of tbo battery ? THK Hl'LL. It is 420 feet long over all. Its bottom ts flat, like the North river sleamnrs. The water lines ere hollow fore and art. The straiu Is about the sum as those having a.i extraordinarily tine run. The bow hollows in at the lower leek about oaefoot in fifty; the pmriortlnn of the length to the benm is about eight to one Hi# deck lilies of tho how perfectly hollow. The b ittom plates are of iror. one inoh thick, tape-tng toward tin- top to one lialf in- U, ami are overlapped or clinker built (original wuib Mr. Ste vens) In tho style now ad pml u modern iron slops. The ribs or franc s are < ; ? r cu d of two fi by 3ff inclius heavy angle iron, ivm ? t together lengthwtso by throe and a half inch tlaii.p s. I'ho battery or ship has tyro decks, one fourtoeu 'out high from tho bottom of tho bold and the other twenty-ona lest. The latter, or main deck, is of wood, covered with iron plates lice, y emeigli (as determined by a sories of experiments by Messrs. Stevens) to resist the force of any modern shells r other cniBHiloe l iat may fall on it from the false dek .ih >vr. T e main deck is supported by ihe sides of the ship and by trusses made of boiler plated in ute in hollow t citus and |s?t?. Over tho digitus, which ae nmU.-l t the deck is supported by tho engine framre, and it: ti.e foro and aft parts of the chip by cnsi buH-hc, 'Hit coal comiiartmvnts are bdkwltie low or deck nL o tlie storage room.

The cylinder of each of tho eight ei<glnea Ss forty-live inch s in dumeter and Uie stroko of piston forty-two inches. A remarkable lout ore of the engines Is, that all the priori pdl Journal boxes, including Ibo crank pin ends of tho connecting rods, are hollow, aud furnished with induc tion and i otnru piped, which keep a continual stream o. water rut ning through ihom, rendering it impossible for them to heat. Tho steam pressure to bo carried, to attain | from eighty to one hundred revolutions of tho propellers, | will be about s.xly pounds, at the noinlual horsepower i of 8,600. THK B01LF.RB. Tlie boiler room or compartment is located about 120 fent from tho bow of tho vessel, aud extends back 100 j toot to about the centre of the ship. The boilers are tea la number, five on each side, separated by a central lire room or passage. Fitch boiler Is about 14 feet high, and 11 by 14 feet in length; they have each two furnaces In the low r part, the upper part being tilled with hundreds of two and a quarter inch roturu (lues ton feet long. The ag gregate heating surrncc yT all is ubopl 28,000 square feet. It is not nocessary to use all Ihe boilers except to attain a maximum speed. A railroad runs from the coal bunkers fore and aft to the tire room, by which to obtain coal for use. Two large fans?the engines to drive which are on the upper deck?occupy a position forward of the rows of boilers, which serve to drivo a current of lrosh air Into i the Are room, and also to accolerato tho draft under the furnaces. *H1 8CWSW PKOrM.LF.lH. Tho size of the propellers has not yot been determined upon. The principle, however, of having two of lh"m on war vesicle is an invontion and suggestion entirely ori ginal with Mr. Stevens. The great featuro of this princl pie is their ability to turn the ship round on its own cen tre, as if on a ilxed pivot. This Idea has boon fully ex | cmpltflcd by experiment on other steamers constructed and owned by Mr. Stoveus, and cannot bo too highly esti mated. THK AKMOll AND ARMAMRNT. The armament of the vessel is to comprise guns of the largest calibre, capable of throwing shot of from lour hundred and twenty five to six hundred pounds each. The guns uro worked on nearly fixed pivots, auildshipa, niuo fo t nbovo the surface of the water, and the highest part of the armed portion, or any part of the ship, ox i cept the chimney (telescopic), is hut five and a halt feet | above the surface of tho sea. Thus the angle of tlic mailed j sizu is very flat, being only two to one, while the top purt of the mailed part Is entirely fiat. The whole of tho arm r shuts down over the ve-cl like covers, and consists of a battery beginning 1<>8 led tor ward <>l the centre. ' From the point below water, where ttie si .es ol the ship proper b gin to run up vertically, tho armor sta- is and runs up. ne'lining outwardly to about the surface <>l ?>> water, and leaving a V shaped space between the armor ami the ,-i les of tho ship proper some three feet Mink, which is filled with solid ouk. From this corner the ar mor inciiuos inward at an angle of one rise, to two hori ?/ontal, joining the upper dock. Tho inclined pai is ol armor are inches thick. Tho deck is covered with iron plates thick enough to keep olt hells. Foltd shot would s'riko it at such a very acute angle us to glance on.

Foreign exchange was held at 109% by most of the leading bunkers to-day, and parties who were obliged to remit had to pay this rate. Wc dnubt, however, whether ?5,000 in all were sold above 100%. There is no demand for bills from the tsnde. !!? uce, notwithstanding the scarcity of mercantile Mils, ar 1 consequently the unwillingness of the hankers to draw, the advance in bills may almost be considered merely nominal. The indications nr< thai we may count on an export average for the winter of a million and a half to a million and three-quarters per week, exclusive of cotton. This will supply all the hills required by the importers, provided Congress will raise tlio duties on foreign silks, luces, ribbons and other aiticlcs of luxury which can be dispensed with. Mom while, if the pre si nt upward tendency of the market continues, a- it pr mixes to do, a small specie shipment may be made on Wednesday next, it is as well that the tluiig should he done, as people will then see how groundless the present dread of specie ship- ! nient* is. There is no change in money, and very little doing in paper, 7'he heavy lender,-, still expect to get G for ? all loans, but active borrowers can oh tain II they want at 6. The brokers allow 3 on t, npi rary deposits. The market for money gene rally is rendered dull by the pending suspense in regard to the financial policy of the government. The stork market opened with sonic strength this morning, but showed a tendency to advance so rapiJly that tin hears, for the sake of their con tracts, were forced to put out some options in or der t j keep prices down.

The subject of a bank suspension of specie pay ments is engaging very considerable attention in financial circles It is evident that if the govern ment pays the troops and contractors in paper not redeemable till after the war it will become unsafe lor the banks to continue to pay specie. The emission of irredeemable paper is invariably fob owed by hoarding, and hoarding is quite as sure to be latal to banks us a foreign drain. There is but one proteci on against the one as against the other, namely, a general suspension of specie pay ments. The question arises, when should su. h a suspension take place? Should it be effected w hen the banks are in the plenitude of thoir strength, and before the public Lave begun to take the alarm at the increase of paper money, or should it he deferred till the issue of war paper has begun to produce its effects, and people have weakened the banks by withdrawals of coin? If the ultimate result be inevitable, there can be no difficulty in deciding which of the two courses is the wiser. One point must be borne in mind by the public. A temporary suspension of speoie payments involves no neces sary danger or injury. It may be injurious if, as is the case in the rebel States, it proves the occasion of the issue of large amounts of irredeemable paper, representing no real value, and compara tively certain to prove ultimately worthless. And it may prove injurious in our dealings with foreign States if the balance of trade turns against us. Hut the experience of 1857 is there to prove that, under sound management, banks raay^uspend and business go on, a d specie payments be resumed after a period without causing a single disaster or even any real inconvenience. If, for instance, our associated banks, in view of the nncertairi ties of the future and the probabilities of large issuos of government paper, should decide to suspend with their forty-two millions of coin in their vaults, and the whole country at least one hundred millions richer than it ever was before, what evil consequences would ensue? There is no reason to suppose that specie would rise to a premium, or that there would bo any difficulty in obtaining it for legitimate purposes. Trade would go on as usual; the government would issue its paper, for the due redemption of which the whole resources of the country would be pledged; and by-and-l.y, when pence was restored, or was rendered so cer tain that no further apprehensions of hoarding were entertained, the hanks would resume, as they did after the suspension of 1857, without con traction and without causing any emliivrnssmeut t<> the mercantile community. The suspension wonld have answered its purpose by protecting the bank reneivo from an obvtous danger; and neither the banks nor the public would be any tlio worse. It might i ifme an nidation for a time; but it is not absolutely necessary that this should be followed by disasters, except to a few rash specu lators. ^ The decline of 17 per cent in Pacific Mail in tho course of less than three Weeks?from par, divi- 1 dend on, to 88?-has been one of tho most curious ! features of our stock market. It has generally been supposed that I'acifi# declined because its ships were so peculiarly exposed to danger in the event of war with England. It turns out, how ever, that there was a much better reason for the ' decline. A company is understood to huve been ' formed here some time since for the reopening of the Nicaragua route under reliable auspices. With in a few days the steamer John Hart, Captain Griffin, is said to have^been despatched to Nicara gua to ply on the lake, and negotiations are now pending with an English company, which is to place a line of first class steamers on the Pacific to run between San Juan del Sur. San Francisco, and probably British Columbia. It is the expectation of the friends of the new enterprise that the route will be opened before the spring. In this event the value of Pacific Mail Htock would become pure ly speculative, and it is easy to understand the re ft ut decline. As usual, the parties behind tho curtain have been taking care of themselves. We understand that the last steamer from Ha vana brought over thirty Mexican gentlemen, each provided with a commission from the Mexican government authorising him to fit out a privateer to prey upon the commerce of Great Britain, France and Spain. However grossly the go vernment of Great Britain is violating the spirit of its treaties with na by shelter ing the pirate steamer Nashville, and denying to the captain of the Harvey Birch the poor privi lege of reclaiming the property stolen from him by the pirate Pegram. it is not prohuble that these Mexican agents will find countenance here.
