Promotions in the navy.

--We understand that Commanders Lee and Whittle have been promoted to the rank of CaptainsCaptains ‘"for the war."’ From this we gather that it is the intention of our Government to establish something of a Provisional navy, and under that impression take leave to protest in the strongest terms against any policy which has a tendency to dwarf the growth and development of this important arm of our defence. It is a vast mistake — a most serious error, to suppose that either now or hereafter we can dispense with a large naval establishment.--Norfolk Day Book.
