large augmentation of that portion of our

great ' cause to fear that tha squadron

stances It wtt considered expedient to

experience, with a snfTidti.t cumber of
surgeons, lo furnish, in any event, the aid
necessary for the safely and proper con
duct of the squadron, with power lo re

Capt Rodger cheerfully consented lo en

It is believed that ihe Honda station it
incalculably important to some ol the best
interests of this Union ; and thai it ought
not to be deserted unul every expedient

For the protection of commetre, and
the suppression of piracv in the Western
Atlantic and Culph of Mexico, ii is pro
posed, in i'ir ensuing year, to continue
Thorrtpson't Naiid as the station for tha
vessels emplovcd in tbre objects i to
plare there a ship ol thc linr, aimed and
manned as a frigate, for which purpose
the independence is well fitted; and to
attach to the command the John Adarna
and Hornet, and one otlici sloop of war,
with four of the Uigc schooners, the'
Grampus, Porpoise, Shaik and Spark,
one of the smaller schooners and the bar
ges. I he force is competent to piotect
all our interests. I he ship of the lino
placed in a proper position, will afford
comfiH tsbe ar com mndatirma to those
obliged fo remain at the" station; and pre
vent the necessity rf intercourse with ib
tlnd, when danger is suspected. I he
visit the coasi . ... .!. except th'.se who
to four, five, or six weeks, anu, ..j
reiurn, theircrews may "be exchanged for
others, who, (luting that time, have been
stationary. By tbese means, and a prop
er atiention to cleanliness, butli in the
men and the vessel, and avoiding inter
course with plarrs known to be sickly, the
health of all will probably br pioeivcd.
For the proper execution of tuch a tyt
tem, full reliance mav be pUedin our
offirera. The Und itself, by clearing,
dr-ining, and cultivating, will, fer a
time, probably become more healthful.
It will be perceived, that this distribu
U(iipfJorce includesonh one of the small
schooners. They were .admirably calcu
lated for the end for which they were
purchased, and have effected it. But,
piracy being for the present repressed,
and requiring only such a force as will
prevent its revival, they are no longer
necessary ; and, being both very expen
sive and utterly subversive of all disci
pline, it is respectfully recommended
that they be sold, retaining one for the
present season, after which it may bo
sold. The Porpoise and a small schooner
have been emplovcd under the command
of Lieut. Rumage, in the survey of P"rt
