Mr. Welles Refases to Order One in Time to Meet the Merrimac. Sketch of Mr. Burr's Iron Clad Ram. Bis Plans Lest or Stolen?The Vessels Built by the Bebels and Euglisb. How Iron-Clad Inventors Are Used at Washington. Ccrioun Developments in Relation to Our Naval Affairs, ft*., Ac.. As As early as 1549 Mr. William Burr, or thi? city, pre paredlhe plans of an iron clad ram ami unboa. I he ram was fubmorged, and calculated lo give au enemy 'a vessel a glrkiUK blow when striking uar. Tlio invenior, f, e|j; t tba; it was a difficult mutter -o persuade the Navy Department to build a vessel on his plans, besiiatod some time before presenting them. Finally, however ,i)0 lind two Interviews with Mr Toucey.then Secretary of the Navy one in 1867 and one in 13G0. This official *-? very ranch pleased wilh the plans and models, ns explained by Mr. flurr, but promised nothing doCuito in rela'ion to ihem. Immediately afler Mr. Gideon Welles was appointed Sec rotary of tlio Navy he wis waited upon,and the plena J and models fully explained to him; and the threatening j siena of the tiraea indicating that ho might be desirous or adding such a vessel to the navy, which in herself would defy all the vessels tho rebels might construct, Mr. Welles w:.s urged to prepare for the storm which was rapldlv risiog; and he was shown clearly that a g.eal necessity demanded that something should l.e dore Immediately. It was shown to bim that if he would load off the government would reap groat ( benefits, but tbat to delay would enable these invaluable advantages to,.'all into foroign hands, or perhaps into the bands or tho rebels. Mr. Welles dozed over the matter, and could not see how the government could adopt such a vossel and expend so much money in timos like those. Mr. Burr was so sanguine of the Immense power thfs class of vossel would havo over those In use la the navy that ho offered to give Mr. Welles satisfactory hands that a vessel should bo completed la four months, and further stipulated to go Into action at tbat time with two of the enemy's vessels, nnd if he did not sink them both in lees than two hours, In spile of any resistance they could offer, bo would forfeit the cost of the vossel. At the close of this interview Mr. Welles remarked that ho did not profess to bo an expert in such mutters, and desired Mr. Burr to show his plans and models in tho other bureaus. The conversation took place a few days after Mr. Welles entered apon bis duties, and long before the rebels made tho slightest attempt to convert tho Morri mac into an lfeo*olii,j?r| in fast, beforo she was raised from the Klieaboth river. It will bo readilv seen how great an opportunity was allowed to pa?a by unheeded. These plans wcro preecnted to and urged ui?o the Soc retary no less than four different times during the early months of Mr. Wollas' sccrotaryship; yet In every in staneo he failed to givo the subject hie attention. It ho bad built a vessel or this class she would havo been com pleted some six or eight mouth" previous to the advent or tho Merrimac, so that in the event of her making her appesran e in Hampton Roads she would havo met an an tacoaut superior to her in every respect. lusteud of having struck the enemy a fatal blow, we lost two line vessels, scores of valuablo lives, and suffered the dis grace of having our Heel held at bay for months, and being subjected te a host of great inconveniences. The vessel which wes then offered to the government was to bo built or Iron, wood backing excepted. The armor was live inches In thickness, and would show about the same height above the water as that of tho Monitor pattern since built. The solid wrought Iron beak would have weighed about fifteen tons, secured nrd supported on heavy tubes by sn ingenious system of powerful cellular work, so constructed and connected with hesvy bulkheads ar.d "trong gusset* that the whole would be connected wt'b powerful stringers running the whole length of the ship. Tho rum or bctk, when the vessel was on an even keel, was submerged about four feet; bnt by means of water ballast it could be depressed to about seveu feet below the water line, or elevated nearly to the surface. Her-speed was guaranteed to be eleven toot*, -"be was to havo carried several heavy guns tn a casemate, covered with live inches of iron, standing at an angle of forty degrees. A turret was pin-ed on tte casemate, only a =u.n? ient portion appear tnifwbove to allow the two guns t<> he fired. In f ct, she would have been not unlike the I?nn ferhorg la manv respcCle. Mr. Webb's draughtsman saw and examined the plans of Mr. Burr some nme mouths before the Dun derberg was commenced. After somS conversation Admiral Davis requested (hat Mr. Burr sboold leave his plans and in>dels with birr, premising to return them at anv time when they should be asked for. This was reluctantly compiled with, as the gentleman stated lo the Admiral that he had co copy of them. It was not losg before the plans, be., woro soot for by their owner, who received word from Admiral Da vis tbat they war* lost and coo Id not be found, but If efier another search they should still he among tho miss ing th? government would pay for them. Subsequently be wrote the lollowing explanatory note:? WcsBisoros, August 18.1M3. Sin?1 find, upon inquiry, tbsi I spuka too hastily la Offering to supply you wltn a copy of your lost drawings.

These drawings wore the resell of months of labor and study, and, lustoad of acting as a government should have done, ourft have acted in a very curious manner.
