This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for

use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

THE 
UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY. 



The United States Naral Academy was founded in 1845, by George Bancroft, St^cre- 
tary of the Xavy, in the adininialration of President James K. Polk. It was formally 
opened October 10, of that year, undw-Ihe name of the Naval School, with Commander 
Franklin Buchanan as Superintendent. It was placed at Annapolis, Md., on the land 
occupied by Fort Severn, which was given np by the War Department for the pur- 
pose. The School at its establishment numbered 56 Midshipmen, of whom 3G, of the 
<lato of 1840, were preparing for examination ; 13, of the date of 1841, wore to remain 
at their studies until ordered to sea ; and 7, just appointed, were to take the regular 
coarse, which was fixed as one year at the School, three years at sea, and a iifth and 
final year at the School, before promotion. Later, the course was altered to seven years, 
of which the first two and last two were at the School, and the intervening years 
at sea. 

In October, 1849, a board of officers was appointed to re-organize the School. A new 
nyptcm was devised and carried into operation, July 1, 1850. By this, the course of 
instmction was made more extensive, and arranged to cover four conaccntivc years ; 
the corps of Professors was increased, and a Sloop-of-war, the Preble, was attached to 
the School as a practice-ship. The new school was called the Naval Academy, and was 
placed under the supervision of the Chief of the Bureau of Ordnance and Hydrog- 
raphy. A board of visitors was appointed to examine into the state of the Academy 
annually, and to make a report upon its condition to the Secretary of the Navy. The 
first class of Acting Midshipmen under the four years' course entered in October, 
1-51, and was graduated in June, 1854. The previous course was retained for all who 
had entered the service before this time, those of the date of 1850 being graduated in 
1856. 

In May, 18(31, on the outbreak of the war, the Academy was removed to Newport, 
R. I. The three upper classes were detached and ordered to sea, and thoso remaining 
were quartered in the Atlantic House, and on board the Frigate Constitution. In Sep- 
tember, 18G5, the Aca^lemy was restored to Annapolis, where it has since remaincil. 

On the establishment of the Bureau of Navigation, July 5, 1862, the Acadcnjy was 
placed under its supervision ; March 1, 1867, it was placed under the direct care and 
supervision of the Navy Department, the administrative routine and financial man- 
agement being still conducted through the Bureau. This system was followed till 
March 11, 1869, when all connection with the Bureau ceased. 

The terra of the academic course was changed by law, March 3, 1873, from four to 
six years. The change took eftoct with the class which entered in the following sum- 
mer. 

In 1366, a class of Acting Third Assistant Engineers was ordered to the Academy for 
instruction. The course embraced the subjects of steam-engineering, iron-manufac- 
tnre, chemistry, and mechanics, and practical exercises with the steam-engine and in 
the machine-shop. This class was graduated in Juue, 186"^, together with two Cadet^ 
Engineers who had entered the Academy in 1867. After an interval of four years, in 
October, 1871, a new class of Cadet-Kngineers was admitted. This class followed a 
two years* course, somewhat more exteuded than that of the class of IHGS, and was 
graduated in 1873. In 1872 and 1873, new classes were admitted, the first of which 
left the Academy last summer. By an act of Congress, approved February 24, 1874, 
the course of instruction for Cadet-Engineers was made four years, instead of two; and 
the new provision was first applied to the class entering the Academy in the year 1874. 



4 REGISTER OF THE UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY. 

There are, tborefore, three classes of Cadet-Engiaeers now at the Academy : the First , 
which entered in 1873, and which will be graduated in due course in 1875 ; the Second, 
composed of Cadets turned back from the First Class on account of deficiency in schol- 
arship, and whose course ends in 1876; and the Fourth Class, Just admitted by competi- 
tive examination, which will be graduated under the four years' rule in June, 1B78.

THE MERIT-KOLLS. 



EXTRACT FROM CHAPTER VII. OP THE REGULATIONS OF THE UNITED STATES NAVAL 

ACADEMY. 



At every aonaal examination, tbe Academic Board shall form a general merit-roll 
for each class, in the following manner: Of those members of each class who shall 
have received a satisfactory final average in any principal branch, tbe individual hav- 
ing the highest standing shall receive the maximnm number assigned to such branch 
for that class and year in the table of maximnm numbers, and the one having the 
lowest satisfactory average shall receive one-third of the maximum number ; members 
of the class having intermediate standings shall receive numbers decreasing by equal 
differences from the maximum to one-third of the maximum, and members who have 
not received a satisfactory final average shall receive numbers decreasing by the same 
equal diffierences from one-third of the maximum, tbe class being arranged in order of 
merit, as fixed by their relative standing in the branch considered. 

Of those who have not been found deficient in conduct, such as have no dements 
shall receive the maximum number allowed for that class and year, and the others 
■hall have that maximnm diminished by one one-thousandth part of itself for eycxj 
demerit recorded against them. All the numbers which shall be thus assigned to the 
aeveral members for the several branches of study and for conduct shall then be 
added together, and the names of the members shall be arranged in each class accord- 
iDK to the aggregates thus obtained, the highest number being placed first on the list, 
and the others in their order. 

At tbe final academic examination, the Academic Board shall make up the ^graduat- 
io/( merit-roll" for this class, by adding the numbers which each member of the class 
shall have received on the several *' general merit-rolls" for the four years, and arrang- 
ing the order of numbers according to the aggregates, placing the highest first. If any 
member has been put back from a higher class, the numbers from the merit-rolls of his 
former class shall be used to supply deficiencies. 

KCLES ADOPTED BT Tfiffi ACADEMIC BOARD TO BE OBSERVED IN PREPARING THE 

MERIT-ROLL& 

1. No final average below 2.50 (on a scale of 4) shall be considered satisfactory in 
assigning the multiples. 

2. Whenever the same class-number shall be assigned to two or more persons in any 
branch, each shall receive as his multiple in that branch the mean of all the multiples 
which would have been assigned to such persons had they been numbered con- 
secutively. 

3. Whenever, for any reason, the class-standing of any person shall not be made out 
until after the multiples of the remainder of his class have been determined, the mul- 
tiple assigned to such person in each branch shall be the mean of the multiples of the 
two members of his class between whom his relative standing in that branch places him. 

4. Whenever the merit-rolls of a former class are nsed to supply deficiencies in the 
graduating merit-roll in the case of any Cadet who has been turned back, he shall 
wceiye the aggregrate multiple which was allowed him in his former cltws, unless tho 
maximam number allowed to that class in the table of maxima difiers from the maxi- 

mam number iw the corresponding year of the class in which he was placed; in which 

casehiB aggregate multiple is to be increased or dimiuishetl in the same proportion as 
themasimum number of his former class has been increased or diminished.

REQUISITES FOR ADMISSION 



COURSE OF INSTRUCTION, 



WITH 



EXAMINATION-PAPERS. 



REGULATIONS 

OOVERNIXG 



THE ADMISSION OF CANDIDATES INTO THE IJAVAL ACADEMY 
AS CADET-MIDSHIPMEN. 



I. Tbenamber of Cadet-Mid fihipmen allowed at the Aca«lemy is one for every Member 
and Delegate of the House of Representatives ; one for the District of Colombia ; and 
ten appointed annually at large. 

IL The nomination of candidates for admission from the District of Colombia, and 
at large, is made by the President. The nomination of a candidate from any congres- 
sional district or Territory is made on the recommendation of the Member or Delegate 
from actnal residents of his district or Territory. 

m. Each year, as soon after the 5th of March as possible, Members and Delegates 
will be notified in writing of vacancies that may exist in their districts. If snch Mem- 
bers or Delegates neglect to recommend candidates by the 1st of July in that year, the 
Secretary of the Navy is reqnired by law to fill the vacancies existing in districts actn- 
allj represented in Congress. 

IV. The nomination of candidates is made annually between the 5th of March and 
the Ist of July. Candidates who are nominated in time to enable them to reach the 
Academy between the 5th and 8th of June will receive permission to present them- 
lelyes at that time to the Superintendent of the Naval Academy, for examination as to 
tbeir qualifications for admission. Those who are nominated prior to July 1, but not 
In time to attend the June examination, will be examined between the 20th and 23d 
of September following ; and should any candidate fail to report, or be found physio- 
ally or mentally disqualified for admission in June, the Member or Delegate from whose 
district he was nominated will be notified to recommend another candidate, who shall 
be examined between the 20th and 23d of September following. 

v. No candidate will be admitted into the Naval Academy, unless he shall have passed 
a satisfactory examination before the Academic Board, and is found, in the opinion of 
a medical board, to be composed of the surgeon of the Naval Academy and two other 
medical officers designated by the Secretary of the Navy, in all respects physically 
Kmnd, well-formed, and of robust constitution, and qualified to endure the arduous 
labors of an officer in the Navy. 

VI. Candidates for appointment as Cadet-Midshipmen must be between fourteen and 
cigbteen years of age when examined for admission. All candidates for admission will 
be required to certify on lumar to their precise age, to the Academic Board, previous to 
examination, and none will be examined who are over or under the prescribed age. 
They must be of good moral character, satisfactory testimonials of which, from persons 
of good repute in the neighborhood of their respective residences, must be presented ; 
and testimonials from clergymen and instructors in colleges and high schools will have 
special weight. They must also pass a satisfactory examination before the Academic 
^rd in reading, writing, spelling, arithmetic, geography, and English grammar, viz : 
ia reading, they must read clearly and intelligibly from any English narrative work, as, 
fot example, Bancroft's History of the United States; in writing and spelling, they must 
▼nte from dictation, in a legible hand, and spell with correctness, both orally and in 
"WT\t\ng-, in arithmetiCj they will be examined in numeration, and the addition, subtrac- 
tion, multiplication, and division of whole numbers and vulgar and decimal fractions, 
aodin proportion, or the rule of throe, and show a goo<l knowledge of the subject. It 
IB desirable that the board should ascertain the aptitude of a candidate in this brafich 
of study, which, if good, should count in his favor in case of a slight deficiency in other 



48 REGISTER OF THE UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY. 

branches. In geography f candidates will be examined as to the grand divisions, the con- 
inents, oceans, and seas, the chief mountains and rivers, and the bonndaries and popu- 
lation of the chief nations, their governments, capitals, and chief cities ; in English gram- 
mar, they will be examined as to the parts of speech, the rales connected therewith, 
and the elementary construction of sentences, and will be required to write such origi- 
nal paragraphs as will show that they have a proper knowledge of the subject. 

The board will judge whether the proficiency of the candidate in these branches is 
sufficient to qualify him to enter upon the studies of the Academy. 
VII. Any one of the following conditions will be sufficient to reject a candidate :— 
Feeble constitution ; permanently impaired general health ; decided cachexia ; all 
chronic diseases, or results of injuries that would permanently impair efficiency, viz., — 

1. Infectious disorders. 

2. Weak or disordered intellect. 

3. Unnatural curvature of spine. 

4. Epilepsy, or other convulsions, within five years. 

5. Impaired vision, or chronic disease of the organs of vision. 

6. Great permanent hardness of hearing, or chronic disease of the ears. 

7. Loss or decay of teeth to such an extent as to interfere with digestion and impair 
health. 

8. Impediment of speech to such an extent as to impair efficiency in the performance 
of duty. 

9. Decided indications of liability to pulmonary disease. 

10. Permanent inefficiency of either of the extremities. 

11. Hernia. 

12. Incurable sarcocele, hydrocele, fistula, stricture, or hemorrhoids. 

13. Large varicose veins of lower limbs. Chronic ulcers. 

14. Attention will also be paid to the stature of the candidate ; and no one mani- 
festly undersized for his age will be received into the Academy. In case of doubt about 
the physical condition of the candidate, any marked deviation from the usual standard 
of height will add materially to the consideration for rejection. Five feet will be the 
minimum height for the candidate. 

15. The board will exercise a proper discretion in the application of the above con- 
ditions to each case, rejecting no candidate who is likely to be efficient in the service, 
and admitting no one who is likely to prove physically inefficient. No candidate re- 
jected by the board will be allowed a re-elamination. 

Vin. If both these examinations result favorably, the candidate will receive an ap- 
pointment as a midshipman, become an inmate of the Academy, and be allowed his 
actual and necessary traveling-expenses from his residence to the Naval Academy, and 
be required to sign articles by which he will bind himself to serve in the United States 
Navy eight years, (including his term of probation at the Naval Academy,) unless 
sooner discharged. K, on the contrary, he shall not pass both of these examinations, 
he will receive neither an appointment nor his traveling-expenses ; nor can be by law 
have the privilege of another examination for admission to the same class unless recom- 
mended by the Academic Board. 

IX. When candidates shall have passed the required examinations and been admitted 
as members of the Academy, they must immediately furnish themselves with the fol- 
lowing articles, viz., —

The articles marked *, not being required to conform to a standard pattern, may be

lations, and are therefore required to be supplied by the Store-keeper. 

X. Each cadet-midshipman must, on admission, deposit with the paymaster the sum 
of $100, for which he will be credited on the books of that officer, to be expended, by 
direction of the Superintendent, for the purchase of text-books and other authorized

vertical and horizontal components of the acceleration of the motion of the centre of 
gravity of the system. 

5. A horizontal plane is descending with a velocity of 32' per second, when a bill ^ 
dropped from a point 48' above it; the elasticity being perfect, find the distaaee 
between the highest point of the rebound and the point from which the ball started.

perpendicular to the line of the keel ; supposing the box not to slide, what must be the 
velocity of the ship if, when she is brought up suddenly, the box just topples overf 

8. A shot weighing 6 pounds leaves the muzzle of a gun with a velocity of 1,000^ per 
second ; determine the mean pressure of the gases on the shot, if the distance from the 
seat of the shot to the muzzle be 5'.

Seboolj before promotion. Later, the coarse was altered to seven years, of which 
two and last two were at the School, and the intervening years at sea. 
October, 1649, a board of officers was appointed to re-organize the School, A new 

was devised, and carried into operation, July 1, lt*oO. By this, the course of J 
ict>4>n was made mure ext4!nBive} and arranged to cover four couaecutive yaim|J 
t^tfrn of Prufi'ssors was increased, and a Sloop-of'War, the Preblo, was attached tau 
School a-» a practice-ship. The new school was called the Naval Academy, aod 
placed under the snper^'tsion of the Chief of the Bareau of Ordnance and Hydrog- 
A board of visitors was appointed ti> examine into the state of the Academy 
loalty, and to make a report upon its condition to the Secretary of the Navy. The 
ctase of Acting Midshipmen under the four years' course entered in October, IbSl| 
was graduated in June, 1854.

1. Define straight Utu, plane surface, right angle, quadrilateral. Name and defino tlio 

ttBerent classes of qaadri laterals, giviii;r a dia);raiii of earh. Prove that the sum of 

IBbe aogles of any plane triangle is two right angles. Prove that the three bisM^tors of 

te ftDgles of a triangle meet in a point. 

1 Explain the terms chord, arc, sector, segment, H<iant, tangent. Prove that an angle 

iHcribed in a circle is measured by one-half the int^treopted arc. Prove that, if 

Ihnmgh a 6xed point within a circumference a chord be drawn, the proiluct of the 

ttowgments of the chord is coustant. 

3. Write formulas for the areas of triangh^s, trapezoids, aud circles, and for the cir- 
onderence of the circle. What is the diameter of a circU^ whose area is equal to that 
if tiuee circles whose diameters are 6 inches, H inches, aud 24 iuches res|)ectively f A 

tain arc is eqnal in length to the radius; lind its h'ligth in degrees, minutes, aud 
Moods. 

4. loBcribe a regular decagon in a ciiclo whoso diameter is .3 inches, and prove the 
ooDitniction. Find an algebraic expression for the hMigth of a side of the decagon, 
^booUog the radius of the circle by a. 

5. Prove that the s^iuare described up(m the hypothenuse of a light triangle is etpiiv- 
ilentto the sum of the scjuares described on tbe other two sides. Prove that a Hue 
iawn from the vertex of the right angle to the middle of the hypothenuse is equal to 
Me-half the hypothenuse. ^

^0, find expressions for (1) the diagonal of a square, {2) the altitude of an equilateral 
triftogle,(3>thenuliusof a circle circumscribed about a regular hexagon, (4) the radius 
; ifieizclecircamscribed about an equilateral triangle, (5) the radius of a circle iuscribed 
- vithiu an equilateral triangle. 

7. Define prism, conical surface, spherical triangle, tri -rectangular triangle. Write formu- 
Inibrthe volumes and surfaces of the coue, cylinder, aud sphere, the volume of the 
frutom of a cone, and the surface of a zone. l*rove that a triangular pyramid is one- 
tUid of a triangular prism which has the sanie base and altitude. 

6. State and prove the relation between the parts of a spherieal triangle and those 
If iDg opposite to them in the polar triangle. Show that the area of a spherical tri- 
ttgls is measured by the sphericul excess. If i" of spherical ex(M>ss represents one 
iqnare mile of surface, what is the diameter of the sphere f 

9. The section of a ditch is a trapezoid, of which tht^ parallel sides are 7 feet and 1 
hot respectively, and the depth is fi'ut. If its length is a (jnarter of a mile, how 
nuHiy cubic yards will it contain? What gennn^trioal figure is the ditrh ? What is 
the depth of water when the ditch is half full 7 

10. A heavy sphere is placed in a hollow conr of revolution, the radius of the base 

of the coue being -y\-- inches, and the axis 10 inches. The axis of the cone is vertical 

lod the vertex downward. The spaee internuMliato to the two bodies is filled with 
water, which Just covers the sphere as it begins to llow uv<;r. If the sphere, be slowly

UNITKO STATES NAVAi. ACAD LIMY." 



The United Statps Kavnl Aciidetny was founded in 1^45. by Hon* Gcorg< 
Secretary of the Navy, in tht? administration of President James K» Polk, 
mally opened October 10, of that year, under tbe nanje of tbe Naral SchooU with Coiu- 
mander P'ranklin Buchanan as Superintendent, It was placed at Annapolb, Md.. «m 
the laud occupied l»y Fort Severn, which was given «p by the War I>epartment foe 
the purpoae. The course waB fixed at l3ve years, of which ibe 6r?it and last only wf>tw 
spent at the School^ the intervening tbr^e bv^ing passed at sea. This »rTHngeii)«*nt «»§ 
not strictly adhered to, the exigencies of the service making it neceasaryt t 
casef, to ftborten tbe period of study. In January, 1846, four monthn after the ^ ; 
of the School, the students consift-t-ed of tiC Midshipmen, of the date of 1^40, who Ttpw 
preparing for tbe examination for promotion; Hi of tbe date of 1^41, who v:t'Tv f» 
remain until dratted for service at sea; and 7 Acting Midi^hipmen, appoints 
September of the previous year. The Midshipmen of the date of 1^0 were lh». .--. . 
graduate, finishing their limited course in July, lic'46, and they were followed in onlcr 
by the subsefimmt dates, until tho re-organi/ation of the Sehoob in Ir^al. 

In September, l^A9, a Board was appointi-d to revise the plan and regulation* of j 
Kaval Schoob The Hoard was composed of the following otficera: 

Commodore William li. Shnhrick, 

Commander Franklin Buchanan, 

Commander Samuel t\ DnPoot, 

Commander George P, Upshufi 

Surgeon W. S. W. Ruechenberger, 

Professor William Cbanveuet, 

Captain Henry Brewerton, IT. S. A. 
Tbe plan reported by the Board was approved, and went into operation July T, 
The new organization provided for a cours^e of seven years, the tir^t two 
at the School ami tbe three intiiiuediate years at sea. The School was [ 
the ftupervisiou of the Bureau of Ordnance and Hydrography, and its natue ' 
changed to the United States Xaval Academy, The corps of professors was eiila 
the course was extended^ and the system of separate departments, with exeon^ 
heads, was fully adopted. It was provided that a Board of Visitors sbpntd ntak« 
annual inspection of the Academy, and report upon its condition to the Secretary ♦kf I 
Navy, A suitable vessel was attached to the Academy a^i a practiee-shipi ftBdf 
annual practic^-cmises were begun. 

After the system had been in operation a year new chnngcs were propo^ul, nnd] 
recommendations of the Academic Board on the »ut>ject were referred to the W<m 
Examiners of tbe year ie51| composed of the following ol^cera: 

Com mod or f^ David Conner, 

Captain Samuel L, Breese, 

Comm under C. K. Strlbling^ 

Commander A, Bigelow,

Lieutenant Thomas T, Craven. 
The change recommended by the Board of Examiners, and adopted by tb^

tbe middle of Ibe course, thus inakiug tbe four years of study consecutive. The prac- 
tu*e-cruit»e8 supplieil tbe place of tbe oniltted sea-service, aud ^ave better opportunities 
of trniuiug. Tbe cbaiigo went into operation in Novendier, L-^Gl, together with other 
iiuproveiueuts reeoui mended by the Board. Tbe system has continued, witli slight 
niodiHcatious, to the present time. Tbe first class to receive tbe benelit of it was that 
vbich entered in lf^5l. Six members of this class c<mii)leted tbe course in three years, 
and graduated in June, l?*r)4 ; tbe rest of tbe class followed in l^r)5. 

lu May, IsCl, on tbe outbreak of tbe war, the Academy was removed to Newport, 
R. I. The three upper classes were detached aud ordered to sea, and tbe remaining 
Acting Midshipmen were quartered in tbe Atlantic Hounc and on board tbe Frigate 
Constitution. In September. l^Sijo, tbe Academy was moved back to Annapolis, where 
it bns since remained. 

When the Bureau of Navigation was established, July 5. 1j?C*2, the Academy was 
placed under its supervision : March 1, lr*67, it was placed under tbe direct care and 
Mipervisiouof tbe Navy Department; tbe administrative routine aud tiuancial manage- 
ment being still conducted through tbe Bureau. On tbe Utb of March, l"?r»9, all ollicial 
connection with tbe Bureau came to an end. 

Tbe term of tbe academic course was changed by law, March 3, 1S7:5, from four to 
«x years. Tbe change took etfect with the class which entered in tbe following sum- 
mer. 

Ill 1860, a class of Acting Tbir<l Assistant Engineers was ordered to the Academy for 
iu»truction. The course embraced the subjects of steam-engineering, irou-manufact- 
nre. chemistry, and mechanics, and practical exercises with tbe steam-engine and in 
thi-uiacbine-sbop. This class graduated in June, l^Or?, together with two Cadet-Engi- 
^*^T^ who had entered the Academy in l^GT. After an interval of four years, in Octo- 
W. l?71, a new class of Cadet-Engineers was admitted. This class followed a two 
yj-aiV course, somewhat more extended than that of tbe class of IHjS, au<l graduated 
>u 1*T:?. In l!f72 and 1'!'73, new classes were admitted, the first of which left tbe 
A<:adeniy in l'?74 and the second in l-ifT."). By an act of Congress approved February 
''^<. 1*74. tbe course of instruction for Cadet-Engineers was made four years, instead of 
^«": and tbe new provision was Hrst applied to tbe class entering tbe A<'ailemy in the 
,V--;ir 1*74. 

Tbere are now three classes of Cadet-Eujxineers at tbe Academy: tlu" second, which 
entered in 1>74 under tbe new law: and tbe third and fonrtb, admitted in 1*^75 and 
3**0, respectively.

1. Prove that the sum of the angles of any plane triangle is two right angles. 
Deduce an expression for the sum of all the angles of a polygon of n sides. If the 
polygon is regular, what is each angle ? Prove that in an isosceles triangle the angles 
opposite the equal sides are equal. 

2. Prove that the straight lines which bisect two adjacent supplementary angles are 
perpendicular to each other. Prove that, if through the middle point of one side of 
a triangle a straight line be drawn parallel to the base, it will bisect the other side, and 
the intercepted portion will be equal in length to one-half the base. 

3. Prove that, in any triangle, the bisector of an angle, or of its exterior angle 
divides the opposite side, internally or externally, into segments which are propor- 
tional to the adjacent sides. 

4. Prove that the square described on the hypothenuse of a riG:ht triangle is 
equivalent to the sum of the squares described on the other two sides. 

5. Prove that a triangular pyramid is one-third of a triangular prism of the same 
base and altitude, and that the frustum of a triangular pyramid is equivalent to the 
sum of three pyramids, &.C., &c. 

6. Define spherical triangle. Explain what is meant by the term polar triangle, and 
state the relation between the parts of a spherical triangle and those of its trihedral 
angle at the centre of the sphere. Prove that, in two polar triangles, each angle of 
one is measured by the supplement of the side lying opposite to it in the other. 

7. A right triangle A C Bf whose sides C A and C B are respectively 12 and 5, is 
placed with the vertices A and B on two lines A and OB, which meet at right 
angles ; it is required to find the perpendicular distance of the vertex of the right angle 
C from each of the lines J, J5, and the length of the line C, Given that the 
angle OA B = BAC, 

ti. A cone is circumscribed about a sphere, and its height is double the diameter of 
the sphere (radius a). Compare the surfaces and volumes of the cone and sphere.

THE UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMV. 



Tho Uultetl Stafea Naval Aco^lemy was fonnded in 1845^ by Hon. Goor^i« Hauotd 
Secietiiry of the Navy^ iu tht^ adiiiitiiatnition of President James K. Polk. It wa^i 
nially opt^ned October 10, of thrtt yeiir, under tbe iu%me of the Naval School, with Cti 
itiander Frunkliu BiichaQiin tin Sivperiut^'ttdeut. It waa placcnl at Xnn^poUn^ Md,, j 
the laud nccupied by Fort Severu, which was given up by the War Departmoat | 
the purpose. The coiiree wi\8 fixed at five years, of which the 6r»t and last only ^ 
spent at the School, the intervening thrue being passed at aoa. This arTangem«Dt 
not fitrictly adlipred to, the exigencies of the service making it ueceiiMjfity» i" ^^ 
cases, to shorten the period of study. In Juiuiary, 1646, four months after the ofieal 
of the School, the students consiated of 3(> Mtilnhipiuenf of the date of 1^0, who ^ 
preparing for the examination for promotion; 13 of the date of lf?41, whow«f«i 
reuituTi untit druftetl for service at sen; and 7 ActJu|^f Midahipmen, appointed *ia» 
September of the previous year. The Midshipmen of the date of 1340 wore th/c fin* 
to gradnate, tinishing their limited course in July, 184fi, and they wore followed jj 
order by the 9ut>8ef^nerit dates, until the reorganization of the School, in l'J5l. 

In September, 1649, a Board was uppoiuted to revise the plan and regular iiui« of 1 
Naval Schoal. The Board was composed of the following officers: 

Comma<]ore William B, Shubnck, 

Commander Franklin Buchanan, 

Commander Samuel F. DnPont, 

Commander George P. Upshur, 

Surgeon W, S, W, Huschenberger, 

Professor William Chaavenet, 

Captain Henry Brewerton, U. 8. A. 
The plan reported by the Board was approved, and went into operation July 1, 18 
The new organisation provided for a course of seven years, the first two and laxt 1 
at the Sclio(d and the three intermediate years at sea. Tho School waa placed ow 
the supervision fjf the Hiirean of Ordnance and Hydrography, and its Qafu# 
changed to the United States Naval Academy. The corps of profesaora was (»nUri 
the course was extendwl, and the system of separate departments, with ^xecut 
heads, was fully adopted. It was provided that a Board of Visitors should make i 
annual inspection of the Academy, and rejmrfc opon its condition to the BecrcjL 
the Navy. A suitable vessel was attachod to the Academy as a praotioe^lup, AOil | 
annual practioe^ornises were begun. 

After the system had been in operation a year Bew change wore propowMi, j^iid j 
recommendations of tbo Academic Board on the subject were referred to the BoifdJ 
Examiners of the year 1851, composed of tbo following officers: 

Commodore David Conner, 

Captain Samuel L. Breeae, ' 

Commander C. K. Strihling, 

Commander A, Bigelow, 

Commander Franklin Bnohanan, 

Lieutenant Thomas T- Craven, 
The change recommended by the Board of Examiners, and adopted by tlui De 
meati, cooaisted mainly la leaving out the requlreoieut of three yeaiv of et'o-terrks i

the middle of the conrse, thas makinji; the foar years of stady consecative. The prac- 
tice-cruises supplied the place of the omitted sea-service, and j;ave better opportunities 
of training. The change went into operation in November, 1851, together with other 
improvements recommended by the Board. The system has continned, with slight 
motliiications, to the present time. The first class to receive the benefit of it was that 
which entered in 1S5I. Six members of this class completed the conree in three years, 
and graduated in June, 1854 ; the rest of the class followed in 1855. 

In May, IcJGl, on the outbreak of the war, the Academy was removed to Newport, 
S. I. The three upper classes were detached and ordered to sea, and the remaining 
Acting Midshipmen were quartered in the Atlantic House and on board 'the Frigates 
Constitution aud Santee. In September, 18G5, the Academy was moved back to An- 
napolis, where it has since remained. 

When the Bureau of Navigation was established, July 5, 1862, the Academy was 
placed under its supervision ; March 1, 1867, it was placed under the direct care and 
■apervision of the Navy Department; the administrative routine and financial man- 
agement being still conducted through the Bureau. On the 11th of March, 1869, all 
official connection with the Bureau came to an end . 

The term of the academic course was changed by law, March 3, 1873, from four to 
aiz years. The change took effect with the class which entered iu the following sum- 



In 1866, a class of Acting Third Assistant Engineers was ordered to the Academy for 
intttmction. The course embraced the subjects of steam-engineering, iron-man ufact- 
nre, chemistry, and mechanics, and |iractical exercises with the steam-engine and in 
the uiachine-shop. This class graduated iu June, 1868, together with two Cadet-Engi- 
neers who had entered the Academy in 1867. After an interval of four years, in Octo- 
ber, 1871, a new class of Cadet-Eiigineers was admitted. This class followed a two 
years' conrdo, somewhat more extended than that of the class of 1868, and graduated 
in 1873. In 1872 aud 1873, new classes were admitted, the first of which left the 
Academy in 1874 and the seciond in 1875. By an act of Congress approved February 
W, 1874, the course of instruction for Cadet-Engineers was made four years, instead of 
two; and the new provision was first applied to the class entering the Academy in the 
year 1874.

MERIT-ROLLS FOR 1S7C-7 



Merit-nills, made out yearly for each cIqsb, show the proficiency of the Cadets in each 
branch of Ktiidy. The numbers ^iveu in the preceding tabl>^, Hhowinj; tiie relative 
^'eight cf the different branches, are used as coefticients; the final mark in each 
branch (on a scale of 4) being multiplied by the number assigned to that branch. The 
•QDi of the products, after making deductions for conduct, is the final mark of the 
Cadet fur the year. 

Ill the case of Cadets who take an elective conrse in any branch, the final nmrk in 
^bat branch is determined by adding to the final mark received in the re(]uire<l coarse 
'^ne-tifth of the a uount by which the final mark in the elective course exceeds 2.50. 

In the graduating merit-roll, the final mark for the course is determined by the sum 
*^* the four yearly marks. 

"Cadets who attain 85 per cent, of the multiple in any year shall be distinguished 
**y a star aflixed to their names on the merit-rolls."— (Kegula:ions U. fc>. Naval Acad- 
^uiy, $ 1.50.) 

Cadets whose names are marked thus (t) were found deficient, but were allowed to 
Continue in their classes on c edition of passing at a re-examination. 

Tho^e marked thus (t) were found deficient, and turned back, tu recommence the 
^tndies «)f their resj^ective classes. 

Those marked thus {^) were f«)und deficient, aud recommended to be dropped. 

a denotes absence from examination.

THE mOTED STATES KAVAL ACADE5iT, 

I midtllo of the four^cj, thus making tbo fmir years of study conaenutive, Tho prac- 
cruu^t>s supplied the place of the omitted sea-service, and gflve bett-er opportunities 

' traiuing. Tlie change weut into operation in Kovember, 1851, together with other 

apmvcnients reromun.iudt'd by tUiJ Boar<l. The system has continued, \ritb alight 
m<Mli(lcation8, to the present time. The first claaa to receive the benefit of it was that 
which eut«»red in lr^r>l. Six members of tliis elaas completed tbo coiirae in three years, 
and ijradnated in June, 1854 ; the rest of the clrisn followed iu 1855. 

In May, 1801, on the outbreak of the war, the Aeaderay was removed to Newportt 
R, I. The three upper claasea were detached and ordered to sea, and the remaining 
Actin^^ MkUhipmen were quartered in the Atlantic Houi%c and on board the frigates 
Constitution and 8antee. In September, 1805, the Academy was moved back to An- 
napolis, where it baa since remained. 

When the Bureau of Navij^ation was established, July 5, 1862, the Academy was 
pliKod tinder its supervinion; March 1, 1867, it was plac^^d under the direct care and 
supervision of the Navy Department, the admiuiatrativo routine and financial man- 
»gem<*nt iM^ing still conducted through the Bureau. On the llth of March, 1869, all 
aifieial connection with the Bun^au came to an end. 

The term of the academic course was changed by law, March 3, 1973, from four to 
six years. The change took effect with the elasw which entered in the following aiim- 
nicr. 

In 1835, a dans of Acting Third Assistant Enguieers was ordered to the Academy for 
instruction. The course embraced the subjects of steam-engineering, iron-manufact- 
ure, chemUitry, and mechanicH, and practical exercises with the steam-engine and in 
tbe machine-shop. This class graduated in June, 18*>8^ together with two Cadet-Engi- 
neern who had entered the Academy in 1867* After an interval of four years, in Octo- 
ber, 1j?71, a new class of Cadet-Engincors were admitted. This class followed a two 
ye^ars* course, somewhat more extruded than that of the class of 18&8, and graduated 
in 1873. In 1872 and 1873, new elasst^s w<*re udmitted, the first of winch left the 
Academy in 1874 and the second in 1875. By an act of Congress approved February 
2Af 1874, the course of itistrnctiou for Cadet-E*igineers was made four years instead of 
two; and the new provision wa** first applied to the clais enteriug the Academy in the 
year 1874.
