s effect, with the ignorant masses, but it can scarcely have been entertained by any one who has a just conception of the nature of our federal system of government. It loses sight of the fact, that the States are the creators, and the Federal Government the creature; that not only the military schools, but the Federal Government itself belongs to the States. Whence came the fund for the establishment of these schools? From the States. In what proportion did the States contribute it? Mr. Benton has answered this question, as the reader has seen, when he was discussing the effect of the tariffs under which the South had so long been depleted. He has told us, that four States alone, Virginia, the two Carolinas and Georgia, defrayed three fourths of the expenses of the General Government; and taking the whole South into view, this proportion had even increased since his day, up to the breaking out of the war.

They carried 4 to 16 guns, and some of them were made to float in 2 1/2 feet of water. They were calculated to fight bow on, and were practically invulnerable to 100-pound shot when in this position. The Benton, Exsex, Carondelet, Lexington, and a large number of others, were of this construction. Toward the latter part of the war a number of monitors were built for service on the Mississippi. A class of vessels plated with 3/4-inch iron were jocularly called tin-clads. Their armor was a protection against rifle-balls, but was easily penetrated by shells from the lightest field-pieces. Improvised iron-clads, consisting of river steamers plated with railroad-iron, were used by both parties o
