The effect of the late storm on the naval Shipping.

--The Navy Department has received intelligence from many of the naval vessels along the Northern coast that have suffered by the late storm. Not less than twenty-seven vessels are reported as requiring repairs. Experience has shown that many of the merchant steamers purchased or chartered are too weak for naval service. Reliable ships for the navy can only be obtained by being built especially for the purpose, though necessity has brought vessels constructed for other purposes into the service.--Phil. Press.
