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.

PREFACE. 



As • eoimnaloa-book of ntetwm for hieU, statiBtidf^ and oth«r dttto, fta ( 
rlMiiBil, tlM HatioBftI AhnaiuM for 18((S took a long stride in adraBoe of any pnoediag 
irork of tko sama genoral dMoription. It thavefore proved to bo a moat aeoeptable and 
papular book, tke salea amoantoig to flfkaea thoaaand oopiea. But Juat as that rolaaw 
mrpaaiad tta predeoessora of the same tjps^ as a sonree of popular information^ tka pff#- 
sa»t Toloma ia belioTed to be in advanoe of the first. It has bemi the svbjeot of mor^ 
labor and more oare; its soope is maoh broader, and its statlatios^ to a rerj large ejrtenl^ 
aia ataah batter aad f^eaher. it is, therefore, antioipated with oonfldenoe tkat i* will 
aMoi with a still mere fiivorable reoeptien by the pablio. 

Aa examples of the fresbnees and valne of the matter of this vohtme^ the reader should 
tarn to the tables, now ftrst published, showing the operations of our Internal Bevenua 
s^rslam ; or to tbe^pagea exhibiting the eondition of our Navy, and its oaptarea during tba 
war; or to the full «mI recent presentations of the aiEurs of the groait Dur eatn s of the 
Interior Department. Beferring to the first of these instanees, the reader will find 
aoptouB taUes, showing tile results of our system of Internal Taxation, stiU so new to the 
prsaent gtiieration of Amerieans. They exhibit in detail the amount of Internal Beremsa 
paid during the last fisoal year by every artiole and olasa of artioies subject to du^; 
they also shew the amount oontributed to the national Treasuiy by elassea of individttalsy 
as Bankers, Brokers, Doctors, Lawyers, Brewers, Distillers, Dealers, Peddlers, elo. ; thay 
Sl^ibit, farther, the proportions of taxes paid by the great interests of the country, 
Mattufthetaures, Agrieultore, Railroads, BaAks, etc. ; ajad, stUl ftirther, the proportknis 
paM by the sararal States, and by the great geographical and poUtieal divisions of tto 
•sunttj. The tables on these subjects are not only important and valuaUe to idl 
MasBS, froM the tax-payer to the law-maker, but they are exceedingly curious and 
lastrustive in th^r lelatioB to tha raaour^ca of the United States. They are, moreover, 
so raceat that> at the date when (bis is written, they have nevw been made public la 
any forts, not even tot the purposes of the Government 

With regard to the second inataacey turn for proof to the statements exhibiting tka 
aame, the description, the tonnage, the guns, and the whereabouts, of eaoh iff the ships 
af ottr DMgalfieeBt Kavy; the distribution of the fleet actively cruising; the condition 
of the veasets in course of construction ; what the Nanry is doing, and what it ha§ don9, 
la the way 7>f saptarea. Pursuing the examination to the third instance, let the reader 
somataie the details under the head of the " Interior Department,-" the informadon eoB>>

la the taUes eoBoemtng the Patent Oiflce ; the facts concerning the fanportant and giow^

4 PREFAOB. 

Let it be borne in mind that the examples here referred to are exttmplm anljf; for th« 
book is full of Just such fresh^ original, and valiiable matter. . 

Another illustration of the valae of the contents in this volume will be found in its 
ample information concerning the Volurtbbbs of the Armies of the United States. 
Hitherto our Army Registers have been confined mainly to the Regular Army; but, by 
means of a large correspondence and careful compilations fVom roluminous official 
records, the National Almanac is enabled to present to the people of the country a mass 
of information relating to the Volunteer smvioe which has never been approached in 
completeness by any single publication on the subject. The tables under this head (for 
which see the several States, and the title " Volunteers" in the Index) give the number 
and description; the arm of the service; term of service; the names of the original 
eoBmanding ofioers; the number of men; the date of muster or departure, and other 
interesting details, of every regunent, or separate organisation, of every loyal State aad 
Territory, during the two memorable years of volunteering, 1861-63. Nowhere else 
ean this magaaine of information ooneeming the Volunteer Armies of the United States 
be found in one volume. As a permanent and compaot reoord of the marvellous deve- 
lopment of the military power and resources of the United States, it is worth more than 
the priee of the whole volume. 

An earnest and, to a large extent, suooessful effort has been made to give oomplete- 
ness and udiformity to the information oonoeming the governments and the supreme 
judiciary of the several States. Under eaeh table of State officers, the time and manner 
of tiieir election or appointment is given, from anthentio souroes; also, the numbers and 
constitution of the State Legislatures, with their time of meeting; and, with respeet to 
the judiciary, the manner of selecting or appointing the judges, their tenure of offioe^ 
and the times and places for holding terms of all the Supreme Courts. 

The affairs of the organised Territories of the United States are treated with more 
.than usual fulness, beeause they are objects of special interest at this time, and because 
recent legislation had so far obliterated old boundaries as to require an entirely new 
.statement of their existing lines, present areas, population, and condition, for publle 
inl<>rmation. 

. The financial affidrs of a country at war being important topics of study and dia- 
eussion, great attention has been given to thai subject in this volume, la the case of 
the Treasury statisties, they are in all essential particulars brought down to a pedod 
<Hie year later than any tabular matter hitherto attempted in a work of this kind. So^ 
too, with regard to the financial affairs of the States. While in some of these the infoim- 
,ation furnished is no later than usual, the editor has succeeded in procuring from 
nearly all the great States either full parUoulars or abstracts of their revenues, expendi- 
tnres, and debt, and of the condition of their banks, a year later than usuaL The Bank 
-returns of the States will be found, in all important oases, to be nearly a year later than 
the most recent returns published by the General Government. 

Statistics are divisible into two principal classes: vis.: (1) those which exhibit the 
.present condition and relations of the objects or affairs to which they refer, and (2) 
those which develop progress or movement Holding this in view, the editor has been 
eareftil (wherever it could be done) to eombine the two classes so as to show both the pre- 
sent condition and relations, and the progress or movement, of the subjects of which they 
4reat Thus, taking our State Prison statistics as an example, the fig^ures given not only 
^present the affairs of those establishments at the dates of the most recent published 
reports, but also show, comparing the seoond year of the prAent war with the first, that 
crime ha§ deertwed everywhere throughout the United States to a very remarkable ex- 



PREFACE. 6 

tent Similar data are fanilehed for eomparifons of the progrese of thoae onerrlng 
indioes of thrift and comfort, — ^the savings-banks of the New England States. The 
additions to the number of depositors and to the amount of deposits during the war, are 
as extraordinary as they are gratifying to record. Data of the same kind are ftimtehed 
for comparisons concerning our Public School systems, our great public eharities, hos- 
pitals, correctional institutions, Ac 

Sereral of the articles on special subjects, by contributors to this Tolnme, are of a 
eharacter to inrite close attention. That on National Burdens and Resources is a mine 
of statistical wealth that will proye the richer the more it is explored; that on the Public 
Libraries of the United States is a very desirable exposition of a subject concerning 
which our bibliographical literature has been yery deficient; that on Population as 
aifected by Immigration presents some startling figures connected with our yital stalls-' 
ties; that on Agriculture will repay perusal by the laborers in the greatest of ail the 
great interests of our country; and that on Mortality and Sickness in the Armies of the 
United States,* with its illustrative diagrams, is upon a subject of the deepest interest 
and importance. 

The Record of the Events of the Waf during the past year is divided into two artieles, 
— the first being a narrative of the operations of each Army or Military B^artment, 
and the second being a record of the prominent events of the year, both military ancf 
eivil, in chronological order. These two, with the Record in the Almanac of 1863, make 
a ftill Diary of the events of the war fW)m the beginning of the rebellion. 

As the present year will be one of Extraordinary politieal interest, there is added to 
the usual contents of the volume a very foil and complete series of returns of the last 
Genera! Elections in all the States and Territories, by counties and Oongressional dis- 
tricts, and also of the Presidential elections from 1848 to 1860. 

One of the most marked improvements in this issue of the National Almanac will be 
found under the head of ** Foreign Countries," extending from page 562 to 627, — ^seventy- 
five pages, concerning the sovereigns, governments, ministries, areas, populations, 
iinanoes, armies, navies, commerce, navigation, and affairs generally, of nearly all the 
eountries of the world, — a volume of interesting and valuable matter, otherwise inaoces- 
sible to the great body of the public. 

It is no part of the purpose of these remarks to attempt even a general outline of the 
contents of this volume: in a work of such multiftkrious details so compactly con- 
densed, such an outline could not be drawn within the limits of any reasonable prefMie. 
The object is simply to present examples of the Areshness and value of the mass of the 
matter, and of the improvements in and wider scope of the subjects introduced. Henoe it 
is not at all improbable that the subjects not mentioned here are quite as important as 
those adduced as examples. Those who would get a fair idea of the extensive and 
varied character of the contents of this volume of the National Almanac must examine 
the body of the book, or, at least, carefully consult the Index. And those whe would 
have a knowledge of the toil and of the vexatious cares of its preparation cmi reach it 
only through practical experience in making such a book. There are twelve pages in 
one set of tables, which involved the sending and receiving of nearly seven hundred 
letters, — the contents of about three hundred and fifty of which are condensed in the 
twelve pages referred to. In that case the postage alone cost nearly twenty-fbnr dollars, 
or about two dollars a page. In the preparation of the whole work, about tw^ve hun- 
dred letters were sent, and about thirteen hundred letters and packets received; and from

6 PREFACE* 

thMt LBtt«rt and pMk«U, Aad nuxlj four hundred offioial reportf and state papen be- 
aides, in print and in mannsoript, the mass of the information in the book has been 
eompiled, condensed, and arranged. 

As with the preceding volome, so in this, it has been a primary object to procure in- 
foimation firom original and offioial sources^ and to have the matter reviewed by offioial 
personages conversant with the particular subjects. This course has been pursued with 
suooesa. The cases in which any thing has been taken at second-hand are very iew 
indeed. No care, labor, or expense has been spared to make the work accurate and 
reliable and to give it a standard character. 

It is a grafceftil duty to acknowledge the favors and courtesy of the many public 
and ptrivate gentlemen who have contributed the valuable materials out of which this 
work ha«'been built. To the Heads of the Executive Departments and Bureaus at 
Washington and their assistants and clerks; to the Foreign Ministers, diplomatic agents, 
and coBJulsj to our own Ministers, diplomatio agents, and consuls abroad; to the 
Oovemor-Genaral and the laeutenant-Govemors of the British North American Pro* 
vinces, their secretaries and clerks; to the Governors, Secretaries of State, Executive and 
Militaiy Secretaries, Adjutant-Generals, Treasurers, Comptrollers, Auditors, Bank Com- 
miasioners. School Superintendents, and other Executive officers of the several States 
and Territories,* to the Judges, Clerks, Ac of the Supreme and other Courts of the 
Stakes ,* to the officers of some of the State Legislatures; to the Hon. Edward MePherson, 
Clerk of the National House of Representatives; to Captain Jas. M. Gilliss, Superintendent 
of the U.S. Naval Observatory to A. R. Spoflford, Esq., of the Congressional Libra^ ; 
to Professor Gould, of Cambridge; to Hon. James Pollock and Dr. H. R. Linder- 
man, of Philadelphia; to James S. GrinneU^ LewU BoUman, and Daniel Buck, Esqa., 
of Washington; to S. E. Hombrook, Esq., of Wheeling; to Lookwood L. Doty, Esq., 
of Albany; to the correspondent of the Publishers' Circular at Paris; to Benjamin 
Moran, Esq., at London, and to many others, who are not forgotten though for the 
present mentioned only in tlus general way, — especial acknowledgments are due for 
documents, materials, and puggestionji sent forward in the most prompt and kindly 
manner. The editor now sees that he should have made a formal list of these kind and 
esteemed auxiliaries, and regrets that such a list cannot be made in time for the present 
volume. It is hoped that they wiU be in part compensated by having at hand in the 
National Almanac a ocmpanion-book of reference, that will save them, one and all, a 
great deal of time-eonsumlng If^bor that would otherwise be spent in searching through 
hundreds of other volumes for the names, events, statistics, and data collected in one 
compact body in the Almanac In many cases the officers of Colleges, Seminaries, Ac, 
the Superintendents of Hospitals, Asylums, and other Institutions for the Insane, Deaf- 
Mutes and Blind, Reform Schools, Ac, the Wardens of Prisons, and other heads of 
Sanitary, Correctional, and Punitive institutions, favored the publisher and editor by 
the prompt and early transmission of reports, catalogues, and circulars. 

Suggestions, corrections, contributions, reports, public papers and materials, for the 
volume for 1866, will be most acceptable, and are earnestly solicited. 

The volume of the National Almanac for 1804 is thus committed to the just judg- 
ment of the public, with a parting remark, in the language of a distinguished American 
officer^ thai it is a little libraiy in itself and one which answers nearly all questions on 
pnUie aiEairs in a most satisfactory manner.

The time oftaiibimtvhae been calculated for only one of the two daUy tides; the other wiU be

The lottaoB.aad«. In the tables for the rising and setting of the planets, and for the eelipses 
of Jnpiter's satellites, signify morning and erening. 

The times given for the rising and setting of the planets, and for the eohpses of the satelUtes of 
Jopiter, are computed for the meridian of Washington. Ilie times of the southing of the sun and 
moon are also giT«<a for the meridian of that observatory : the former Is sufBdently accurate for any 
place in the United States; but to the latter we should add aa we go west, and subtract as we go 
east, about one minote and a half fbr each ten deerees of longitude, aa H direatid for the rising and

L By ProfiMsor Respighi, at Bologna, on the 
28th of November, l*f62. Its orbit is sensibly 
parabolic. 

II. By Dr. Bruhns, at Leiiisic, 2d of December, 
1862. dn account of its rapid motion towards 
the south, It appears to have been observed but 
a short time in tho northern hemisphere, from 
which only we have results. The observations 
are satisfied by a parabola. 

m. By Dr. Klinkorfbes, at GDttingen, 11th of 
April, 1862. On the day following ltd discovery, 
its appearance was described at Paris as ''very 
fine, the disc (nucleus) surrounded by a fkn-ehaped 
luminosity.** It was observed at Washington, 4th 
of May, ajKl appeared as a round nebulosity {/ or 
f/ in oianieter. It was visible to tho imked eye 
daring the earlv part of May. The observations 
extend over an interval of about five months, and 
its orbit seems to be sliarhtlv elllnticiil 



port, Mass., had discovered a companion to Slrina, 
with the great refractor of his constmctlOD. 
This instrument, unrivalled for its magnitude, Is 
216 lines in diameter. Mr. Goldschraidt has an- 
nounced to the Academy of Sciences at Paris the 
discovery of five other companions, the (" 



of his objec^glas8 being onlv 46 lines I He has 
given a diagram showing their places. 

Mr. Dawes appears to have been the second 
person to recognize any of tlie newly^discovored 
companions by Goldschmidt. Ho announces Iiat- 
ing found tho minute star d some 64" to 67'' east 
of the principal one. 

Oompanion of Procyim. — Mr. Hermann Booh 
berg, who has the care of the Observatory of J. 



Oumey Barclay, Esq., at Leyton, Bssez (BiiglandX 
has given measures for angle of position (294*' 6r) 
and distance (45''.8^ of a lOi mag. companion to 



Procyon made in March last. And thus the ano- 
malous motions of Sirius and Procyon are In a 
fair way to be accounted for. Reasoning npoa

THE UNITED STATES NAVAL OBSEBVATOET AT WASHINaTOV. 



Jjt our Tolnme for 1863 we gave some tcootint 
of the United States Ooast Surrey, the institution 
which has unquestionablv done more hitherto 
than any other one In the land towards establish- 
ing on a Arm basis the scientific reputation of the 
United States abroad, and probably more than 
any other also in disseminating sdentlflc methods 
and stimulating to scientiflc progress at home in 
all directions within its scope and influence. 

Immediately following was a similar account 
of the Smithsonian Institution, an organisation 
aiming at a still wider range of influence, — 
namely, both the increase and the diflTusion of 
knowledge ; and these, too, with no restrictions of 
nationality, and no special devotion to any one 
department or class at, departments in learning 
or science. Of the largd and wise policy, and of 
the able administration which has characterized 
this magnificent trust, the nation to whom it was 
confided may well be proud. 

We propose now to giye some account of a third 
prominent American Tnatitution of science.— the 
Naral Observatory at Washington, — which has 
\i"^. — ' — -" ^^ n stylo worthy of a great gov- 
t^uju .: itio outbreak of the present 

iBsriirr ■ h I '.^Ith larger means in men

t^r4!<t! tiC B4:ciinbcy to which all its ol^ervations

Tt'gultrlt^ with v^hlch all its instruments are con- 
stantly (?tnployed (5ach djr that work to which it 
ti bi'B*!: ftJ>i,ri^t«l f^sid At the promptness with 
which the cib^4^ -.j-iiiji^ are reduced and rendered 
•Tailable for use as flist as they are made. These 
are the characteristics of an Observatory of the 
first class. 

It is somewhat remarkable, when we consider 
our national ambition and our aspirations for in- 
tellectual progress, that so long a time elapsed 
b«fore the establishment of any institution in the 
United States claiming even the name of an astro- 
nomical observatory, if we except some tempo* 
rary structures erected during colonial times for 
special purposes. 

Prominent among those who early advocated 
•Ad persistently urged the foundation of such an 
iastitntion, waa John Quincy Adams. As early as 
October, 1823, while Secretary of State, in a letter 
t» one of the oorp<»ation of Harvard (College, he 
urged the establishment of an Astronomical Ob- 
servatory at Cambridge, and offered to contribute 
one thousand dollars pwsonally towards this end 
in ease the reqnisito sum should be raised within 
two years, the concealment of his name being, 
however, ei^joined. At the expiration of that time, 
the amount not having been subscribed, Mr. 
Adams la&siMd the offer; but the spirit of libe- 
ralitv had not at that time been awakened among 
tiM niends of science, and his effort was in vain. 



In 1825, in the first Measage to Goncraas after 
his aooossion to the Presidency of the Unitad 
States, he earnestly reoommended the establish- 
ment of a National Obeenratory, as aJao of a Uni- 
form Standard of Weights and Heaaorea, of • 
Naval Academy, a Nautical Almanac, and a Na- 
tional University. But all thase reconu^endatlaoa 
were treated with ne^ect by Congress; althou^^ 
time has written a sufficient eommentai7 on their 
wisdom and foresight. An ezeelleiit report on 
the snlject, advocating the views of the President, 
was made by Mr. C. F. Mercer, chairman of tlia 
committee of the House to whcrai, in the ordinary 
routine, the subject was referred; but the reoom- 
mendations of the President and of the Commit- 
teo were suffered to lie unnoticed on the tablea of 
both Houses ; and it was reserved for tiie Emperor 
Nicholas of Russia to follow those oonnaels wfaidi 
party rancor precluded tho Congress of the Unitad 
States from adopting on the recommendation <d 
their President, and, by the establishment of the 
noblest Observatory of the vrorld, to rMider the 
capital of his empire a o^ital of aatronomical 
science. 

The first structure in the United States claia»- 
ing tho name of a fixed astronomical obsMratory^ 
was erected on Capitol Hill in Washington, in tiaa 
year ISM, by Lieutenant Wilkes, for the Naval 
Depot of Charts. It was equipped with a threa 
and three-quarter inch transit-instrument mada 
for the Coast Survey in 1816 and loaned to the 
Navy Department on Uoutenant Wilkes's appli- 
cation, and some portable instruments made fbr 
use in an exploring expedition contemplated by 
the Government in 1828. It does not, however, 
appear that any observations were ever made by 
Lieutenant Wilkes other than thoee necessary 
for rating the chronometers. During the next 
year a five-inch t<>Iescope was placed In the steeple 
of one of the buildings of Yale College, by the 
aid of wliich Halloy's comet was roughly observed 
by Professors Olmsted and Loomls. In 1888, an- 
other small astronomical structure was built at 
Hudson, Ohio, through the exertions of Professor 
Ellas Loomis, and fhmished with an Enf^iah 
equatorial of four inches aperture and a threo- 
inch transit-circle. Professor Loomis determined 
the longitude and latitude of his observatory, and 
made observations of five comets and sixteen 
occultations, although the duties of a professor 
engared in constant tuition left him no opportn- 
ni^ for further astronomical research. 

In June, 1838, information was sent by Mr. 
Rush, our minister in England, that he had re- 
ceived the money bequeathed by James Smithson 
for founding in Washington an institution, bearing 
his name, for the increase and difi^ision of know<> 
ledge among men. Mr. Adams again exerted Us 
most strenuous efforts to secure the establishment 
of an Astronomical Observatory as a part of tlM 
institution. He immediately waited on Proefdant 
Yan Buren, and In a long interview urged hli 
views of the subject A few months later, at tha 
call of the Secretary of State, he redueed hla 
views to writing, advocating the appUohtion oi 
part of the ftind to the establishmant of a grtM 
Observatory and of a Nautical Almanao. Mr. Yaik 
Buren expressed his ooacnrrenoe with the Ti«wai, 
but never acted in the premlsea. 

Indeed, so bitter was the naoor of political par-

the lOCh July, 1882j;nt>Tldlng for the survey of 
the ooaati of the tJnited States, the following

w«ll nnderslood that a part of the appropriation 
it contained was neceaaarily to be i4>plied to astro*

apfreprkUed money to the erection of an Astro-

soea of Mr. Adams.* 

In August, 1888, the U J. Exploring Bxpodition

d h e U e d by the Navy Department to take chiurgo 
of the apparatus at the establishment constructed 
by lieutenant WUkea, and to observe moon cul- 
minatkms and transits of moon-cuIminaUng stars 
as oHeo as possible, for use In determining difier- 
fl»eaa of longitude in connection with the Ezpe- 
ditto*. Mr. Bond, of Boston, who possessed a 
■nail tranalt4nstrunient at Dorchester, Massachu- 
■etts, was also employed for the same purpose. 
n« boildtng, being found unsuitable for the pur- 
poaea dsaired, was remodelled by lieutenant GO-

* Catalogue of the Boyal Astronomical SodeU,' it 
occurred to me that whOe carrying out the <y^ecii 
of the Exploring Expedition, the mites which I 
could add to the data for more correctly locating 
' the landmarks of the luiTerse,' would not be en- 
tirely unworthy of collection ; and with this ob* 
Ject in view I determined henceforward to in- 
crease the number of stars to bo nightly observed, 
so as to embrace one in each three and a half 
to four minutes, between the times of transit ot 
the first and last moon^ciilmlnatiag star, the inter- 
val fixed on being the time ordinarily occupied by 
the transit of one star over all the wires, and set- 
ting the finder for its successor. This was all I 
could hope to accomplish with thcT means in my 
power, unless careftU jestintaUons of the apparent 
magnitudes of each star observed should enable 
me to detect at the termination of the series va- 
riations in their brightness, or to confirm the de- 
gree of lustre already assloied to them. What 
has been acoompUshed in this respect is shown 1% 
the notes to the General Catalogue. 

**AI1 the observations In the" volume, excluding 
a part of those of November 28, 1838, and all of 
May 8 and 4, 1841 ^aa sUted in the foot-notes), 
were made by myselL Absence on the latter days 
was caused by illness; and it is proper to state 
that with the above exceptions there was not • 
visible culmination of the moon, which occurred 
when the sun was less than one hour above the 
horixon, during the entire period embraced bv 
the observations, or an oooultation after the 15th 
of June, 1839, except that of 189 Tanri, mentioned 
on page 502, which I did not personally observe. 

** It remains but for me to express my gratitude 
that the prosecution of these observations should 
have resulted In the foundation of*a permanent 
Naval pbservatory, and have obtained for me, 
though for a brief period, the privilege of associ' 
ation with many of the most distinguished astro- 
nomers of the present century.** 

On March 6, 1840, BIr. Adams, being chairman 
of the select committee on the Smithsonian fimd, 
made a second report, in which, after recounting 
all the principal wets connected with the bequest 
and Its acceptance, he again advocated the views 
which he had so often urged. But, while the 

auestion was pending, a resolution was passed* by 
tie Senate appointing a Joint committee on the 
subject of the Smithsonian bequest. The Houso 
in courtesy concurred, and appointed on Its own 
part the members or the select committee of 
which Bfr. Adams was chairman to be members of 
the joint comnllttce. It may readllv be imagined 
that the two portions of the committee were un- 
able to agree; and It was finally decided that each 
of ihe two component parts should present its 
own report; and while Bfr. Adams reported* a 
series of resolutions prescribing the Investment 
and management of the ftoid, and directing that 
the first appropriation of Interest-money should be 
** applied for the erection of an Astronomical Ob- 
servatory, and for the various oblects incident to 
such an establishment,*' Mr. Preston, of South Ca- 
rolina, the chairman of the Senate Committee^ 
presented counter-resolutions containing the pro- 
vision that no part of the funds should be applied 
to the erection of an Astronomical Observatory. 
This report of Mr. Adams Is well worthy the pe-

ruMil of ttTorj lov«r of tht glorious acieDoe of •»• 
tronomj. botn for tbo richneM of iU iofonuatlon 
•nd tho beaaty of its eIoqaeuc«. 

In 1840 And IMl, two obsermtories were eeta- 
Uiihod,->the first at Philadelphia, by the *< High 
School" of that dty, and the second at West Point, 
br the VJS. BUlitaW Academy. The former was 
weed under the dlroction of tlie late Sears C. 
Walker, the pioneer of practical astronomy in the 
United States, and of Professor S. 0. Kendall ; the 
latter under that of Professor Bartlett. To these 
astronomers we owe the first introduction into 
the country of German Instruments which the 
combined genius of Bessel, Stnivo, and Argo- 
landcr, the three leading practical astronomers of 
tho century, and of Vraunbofer, with his gifted 
colaborers In the highest fields of optical and me- 
chanical art, had rendered as far superior to the 
instraments of England and Prance as tbev were 
different in genera! design, — the German Instru- 
ments being doised with a view to the greatest 
possible mobility of their several parts, that by 
use in different positions their errors might \yd 
measured and eradicated ; and tho English being 
constructed with a view to the greatest possible 
fixity, under the Impression that errors might 
thus be avoided. 

Neither of these Observatories had the advantage 
of thorough insulation from other buildings, or 
even of tn^ supports of the instruments being 
near tho ground ; but to them, or rather to the 
ability and assiduity of tlieir diroctors, working 
in the hours of relaxation (him proferaional du- 
ties, we owe the first important serioe of astrono- 
mical observations made In the United States. It 
is to the stimulus given by their obser>'ations,— - 
especially the admirable ones of Mr. Walker, ren- 
dered peculiarly valuable by his computations, for 
which they supplied the material, — and to their 
publications, particularly the ablo Report on Eu- 
ropean Observatories presented by Professor Bart- 
lett to the Engineer Department on returning 
flrom a Journey to Europe for tho purpose of or- 
dering instruments, — that we are doubtless in- 
debted for much of that public sentiment which, 
combined with other inffnences, at last brought 
about the establishment of the Naval Observatory. 
Mr. Adams led the way, and his exertions proba- 
blv secured the result ; but any direct recommend- 
ation of his was sure to be treated with neglect, 
lieutenant Gilllss had, by his diligent, careful, and 
■uccessfbl observations, secured the all-essential 
confidence and co-operation of the Navy Depart- 
ment, and certainly stimulated the naval coinmit 
tees of Congress to action; but In shaping and 
confirming that public sentiment through which 
alone the favorablo action by Congress became 
probable, tho infiuence of the other astronomers 
bore no inconsiderable part. 

On the 12th April, 1M2, Mr. Adams, as pAalr m^ 
of the committee on the Smithsonian fund, pre- 
sented a third report in form of a biU, proviiung 
for its administration on the same principles 
which he had advocated in former years, and 
directing; that tho income already accrued should 
be invested as a capital, and its interest applied to 
the construction and maintenance of an Astro- 
•omlcal Observatory. The bill failed; for, as Mr. 
Adams's biographer remarks, ** there was no pur- 
pose on which the predominating party were more 
fixed than to prevent the eratification of Mr. 
Adams in this well-known cherished wish of his 
haart.** Yet an Ofaservatonr, under a feigned name, 
was established by act of that very Congress at 



[laH 



that very seasioB, without a divWon, «v indsal 
any opposition, in cither House; and four years 
lat«r the Smithsonian Institution was organised 
essentially on the basis so often urged by hia, 
although omitting the Observatory element, wiuch 
was then no longer desirable, inasmuch as ttaa 
end had been obtained by other means. 

On the 15th March, 1S42, the CommlttM on 
Naval AflUrs reported to the House of Represen- 
tatives a bill " to authorise the construction of a 
Depot for Charts and Instruments of the Navy of 
the United States," together with a vrritten re> 
port.* in which occur the following passages: — 

" In the summer of 1838 the honorable Secre- 
tarv of the Navy directed the Supwintendent to 
make a constant series of observations in astro- 
nomy, magnetism, and moteorolo^, ordering aa 
additional number of assistants, and granting au- 
thority for the purchase of all necessary instru- 
ments. 

** Those observations are intended not only for 
the benefit of the Navy, but of tho country and 
the world. 

" Tho house now occupied, and the Observatory 
connected with it, are both private property. The 
former is inadequate to the purposes for which it 
is intended, Irom its possessing no acoommo* 
datiozu for tbo officers in charge ; and the latter 
is unfit f^om its size, and unsafe for the valuable 
instruments It contains. 

** We are indebted to other nations fbr the data 
which enable our ships to cross the ocean. Not 
only has the Navy fkUed to contribute to the ooo»- 
mon stock from which all our navigators borrow, 
but our country has never yet published an obser- 
vation of a celestial body, which boro the imprest 
' by authority,' and it Is believed that until the 
observations before alluded to in this report, none 
have ever been directed by the GovemmMit wtaM» 
can bo considered continuous. 

" That great errors exist in the tabulated places 
of the heavenly bodies, tho labors of astrouomets 
of the present day sufncientiy prove. Indeed, «U 
who were at all curious in such matters could not 
have failed to remark how great a diflerenoe tiiere 
was between the observed and computed times of 
the last annular ecliuse visible in the United Statoe. 

** Observatories, though not expensive, cannot 
irosper in our country until we can obtain rest 
rom the pursuit of mercantile af&drs, or their 
charge is undertaken by the Government. The 
duties are confining; if properly executed, arda* 
ous ; and but few are oualifled by exporieoce or 
habits to undertake tnem. If officers can be 
found with taste for such duties, an Observatory 
will eive more information to the world under 
a military organlxation, in one year, than under 
any other direction in two. 

'*A small Obsorvator>- is absolutely essential to 
the depot; without it the duties cannot be per- 
formed. The present tenement was erected at 
private expense, of slight materials, and is en- 
tirely unsuited to the wants of the Navy or the 
{irotection of tho instruments. From defects in 
ts original construction, a considerable portion 
of tho heavens is entirely obscured to the ob- 
server; nor can these defects be remedied, even 
were the building worthy alteration.

** Deeming an catablishment of this deacription 
laaantlai to the wel&re of the NaTy, the commit- 
tee report the accompanying bill." 

The bill waa identical with the one which sub- 
aaqeaatly became a law. It was read twice, and 
diapoaed of tn the Hooae by reference to the ** Com- 
mittee of the Whole on the SUte of the Union." 

Om the 23d June, a Ull idenUcal with the one 
thaa laid to rest in the Houae, was introduced in 
the a«ftte by the Naral Committee of that body. 
It paaaro through the sereral stages of legislation 
to doe order: without hindrance or objection; 
w a»t to the House on the 80th July; was referred 
to the aame-eoomittee aa before; but as a Senate 
bill jraa treated with courtesy. It waa reported 
beck without diacusaioD, passed by the Ilonae 
withotit debate, and on the 31st August, 1842, be- 
came a law, aa fbllows : — 

** Be it enectod by the Senate and House of Re- 
maeusilaUna of the United States of America in 
Q m^^f e m asaemblod: That the Secretary of the 
navy be and he is hereby authorized to contract 
for tka building of a suitable house for a depot of 
dmrta and instruments of the Navy of the Unitod 
Bcatae, oa a plan not ezoeediDg in cost the sum 
of twe n ty-fire thousand dollars. 

** And be it ftuther enacted. That the sum of ten

aM pto pri ated towards carrying this law into eflTect. 

^Ajid be it farther enacted. That the said esto- 
UMuDent may be located on any portion of the

Preaftdent of the United Statea may deem suited 
to tbeparpose.** 

On ^e 9th September, nine days afto* the pasa- 
a^ of the law, the Secretary of the Nary, '^tak- 
fjkg the report of the Naval Committee, which 
accompanied the [House] bill as the exiwnent of 
the will of Congreas,** confided the preparation of 
the plana to lieutenant OUIiss, the present Soper- 
tateadcnt. After consulting those Americans 
moet coBvaraant with astronomical suMects, he 
▼Wted Kurope to obtain the counsel of foreign 
astienomam, and to make himself acquainted by 
pcsaoaal inspection with the latest improvements 
m tbe oeastrnctlon of astronomical and magnetic 
taaplementa. In March, 1848, he returned home, 
haviag ordered the inatruroents under authority 
from the SecretaiT of the Navv, and began tlio

eompleted, the Instruments mounted and essen- 
tially adjusted, and a library procured within

prc aa nt ad a very datallad report of his labors,— > 
taking due care, of course, to designate the insti- 
tution by tbe name which Congreas had seen fit 
to confer upon it. This report is published as 
Senate Document No. 114, 28th Congrcaa, Second 
Seaaion. It contains a careftil desCTiption, with 
minute drawings, of the instruments, which are 
in the main the same that, after the lapaa of 
eighteen years, are still in active and suocessftil 
employment Indeed, we make use of the report 
for our present deacription of the iiistitution. 

In the letter accompanying the report, lieu- 
tenant Oilliss mys, — 

** I have the honor to transmit herewith a re- 
port detailing the plan and construction of tbe 
Depot of Charts and Instruments, with an outline 
of Its aatronomical instruments, libranr, *c. 

^ In preparing this account I have been Influ- 
enced by a paragraph in a report fh>m the Council 
to the members of the Royal Astronomical Bo- 
detv, in which they state :— 

**^The Council are of opinion that It would 
tend materially to the advancement of astronomy 
if an accurate deacription of every principal Ob- 
servatory could be obtained, accompanied with a 
ground-^an and elevation of the building; to- 
gether with a description of the instruments em- 
ployed, and drawings of such as are remarkable 
either for their novelty or peculiar Intorost.' " 

And in the report itself he continues : — 

** It being evident, ftvm the report of the com- 
mittee of Congrees before named, that it waa in- 
tended to eetablish a Naval Observatory in oouneo- 
tion with the Depot of Charts and Instrumenta, 
it became an object of great Importance to obtain 
instruments of such character In the various de- 
partments of astronomy, terrestrial magnetism, 
and meteorology (designated by them to be pur- 
sued) aa would render the mo«t efficient service 
during the longest portion of time. To this end, 
eminent advice was sought, and a list prepared ibr 
the approval of the honorable Secretary, which, 
regarding their ultimate useAiIness as paramount, 
still kept economy In view. The list embraced, — 

1st. Achromatic refractor. 
2d. MeridUn transit. 
8d. Prime-vertical transit 
4th. Mural cirolo. 
6th. Comet-aearcher. 
6tb. Magnetic' instruments. 
7tb. Meteorological instrumenta. 
8th. Books. 

**In addition to these to be purchased, there 
belong to the Navy a portable forty-two inches 
transit Instrument and two clocks purchased by 
Lieutenant TVilkes for the Exploring Expedition, 
and a thirty-Inches transit circle and two clocks 
ordered for the Depot by myself, all which, with a 
number of mathematical, astronomical, and other 
scientific books, could be rendered uscftil in the 
new establishment." 

The site selected for the building Is on a hill — 
then known as Camp Hill — In the southwostom 
part of the city, on the north bank of the Poto- 
mac, and ninety-fire feet above high-water mark, 
having a horizontal range of a mile and a quarter 
to the north and of eight miles southward. This 
lilll is of gravel formation, covered with a stratum 
of dry, brittle, clayey soil, through which water 
filters freely ; and the grounds assigned comprise 
about seventeen acrea. 

The building consists of a central portion fifty 
feet square, which contains a basement and two

L detaiL In addition to the astro n omi c al 
obaonratory, a snbterraneoas magnetic obeerrar 
tonr was constincted on the most (^iproved prin- 
ciples, and f^iroished with the best inatmments 
which oould be procored. 

At the doae of Beptember, 1S44, Lieutenant 
Gilliss reported the Obserratory ready for^MXopa- 
tioa. The instruments had been mounlBd and 
•4fv<it^ *<mI *» excellent library proTlded. 

On the lat of October, Lieutenant M. F. Maury 
was assigned to the charge of the institution, and 
directed to remove to it the nautical books, charts, 
and instruments of the then existing depot. A 
cmrps of three lieutenants, six midshipmen, and a 
machinist, was assigned him ; and soon after, four 
more lieutenants were ordwed to the Obeerrattay. 
Among their names may be recognised some 
which have already become national, and asso- 
ciated with memories of a nation's gratitude 
earned by gallant naval service in the present 
ttruggle for the preservation of our country and 

Within the year, three profeasors were added to 
the oorpsuand the all-important assistance of Mr. 
Sears C. Walker secured, doubtless at that time 
by far the most eminent practical a«tronomor 
whom our country had produced. To the ability 
and high attainments of Mr. Walker, in connection 
vrith ^feasors Coffin, Keith, and the lamented 
Hubbard,— all of whom soon took high rank 
among astronomers, and whose patriomm and 
love <H science led them to regard no personal 
•acrifloes as too great,— astronomy owes lar more 
than will probably ever be put on record. In the 
following year Mr. Ferguson was added to the 
aatronomical corps, and the xeal and ability with 
which he has emploved the Equatorial are well 
known. It is ivobably far within boands to 8«y 
that more careful observations have been made 
by him with this instmment, than have been 
ever made with all the other equatorial telescopes 
in the country combined. 

Mr. Walker remained but fourteen months at 
the Observatory. Circumstances which it Is need- 
less to rooount, but which can easily be imagined 
by any one. at all conversant with astronomy, who 
vrill ntui tne introduction and oppeudix to either 
of the two earlier volumes of Washington Obser- 
vations, made his continuance at the Observatory 
impossible, and in March. 1847, he resigned his 
position. But his teachings and influence re- 
mained; and an increased number of able profes- 
sors and astronomical assistants promised great 
•dentlflo progress. 

A large scheme of operations had been planned 



ibrtbetnstitatkm. OontinaalobssrvatioiMortkK 
son. moon, and ftmdamental stan were to ba ka|il 
up by each of the three meridiaa inatnuneota, 
and observaUons ui all the mooa-colminattiig 
Stan of the Nantlcal Almanac by the Tranm 
Instrumoit. The Prime-Vertical instrument was 
to be constantly employed in obaervatioua of cer- 
tain special stars ; for the measurement of paral- 
lax if ponible; to obaerve as manv stars of the 
first and second magnltade as mif^t be ; and ip 
form a catalogue of derllnationa of stars Pttming 
near the senith. The Equatmlal was to himisi 
full observations of the relative posttiona, ooloi: 
and macnitude of double stars, as Struve had 
already done in a much less favoraUe geogn^ihi- 
cal positton ; of clusters and nebulas; of oocalt»> 
tions; of comets and newly-disoovered planetary 
bodies. And, besides these, the three Meridian In- 
struments wwe to be actively engaged in none 
observations, systematically organised, and ex- 
tending as fitf as 46^ S., at which paraUel the ob- 
servations were to begin. 

At the cloee of 1845 the first volume of Wash- 
ington Observations was publisbed, bearing the 
di2e September 1, and under the name **Aiitro- 
nomical Observations made at the U.8. Naval Ob- 
servatory." It was on the whole a very creditable 
work for American astronomy. Besides a fair 
amount of observations with the two Isaiiatt 
instruments, in the meridian and the prioM verti- 
cal and with the Mural (Srcle, it contained varionB 
important investii^tions of the errors and oorrso- 
titMM peculiar to the several instroments,— tnvM- 
tigations which must nocessarilv be made m pr»> 
llminary to the soooessftil employment of astro- 
n<Mnioal instruments, but which— espedaJly Um 
discussion of the various peculiarities of the Mand 
Orde— were carried out with remarkable ahiUty. 
Bfr. Walker's Invcstigatfon of the latitude (whi^ 
he fixed as 38° 63^ 89^.25 for tha centre of the 
dome, a value which there has thus fiur seemed no 
occasion for modifying) ;— Professor Coffin's mas- 
terly discussion of the adjustments of the Mural 
Circle, a model dissertation of its kind; his ex- 
pansion of Bessel's Refkvction tables ;— Mr. Walk- 
er's Comparis(m of the Standard Thermometera,— 
are all of great value. The instruments are r^ 
described and rcfigured; but all this material waa 
so extraordinarily combined, was cemented with 
such unscientific phraseology, and interq>ened 
with such unsdentiflc ideas, that the volomo 
seems not to have received the credit, nor ita 
results the confidence, to which they are &irly 
entitled. 

In 1851, the second volume of Obeerrations ap- 
peared, the name of the institution being changed 
upon tho title-page to "National (HMmrvatory.* 
This volume comprised all the observations of 
the year 1848, excepting the nones, and contained 
numerous observations of sun, moon, planets, and 
comcta, together vdth the observed positlona of 
nearly six hundred stars. The volume tta 1847, 
which was published In 1853, contains nearly tha 
some amount of results as its predecessor, but, 
like that, omits the aono observatfons. The vol- 
ume for 1848 was issued in 1850, the name of tha 
Institution being again changed to ^'U.SJf . Obaar- 
vatory,"— the Siecretory of the Navy having in 
1864 directed the discontinuance of the vrard 
" NationaL" inasmuch as it was in no strict sanaa 
a national institution, though pre-eminently a 
naval one.— the expenses being aetnjtA entiraj , 
through tne Navy Department, and a clanse ap-

lluring the memorable days ot April, 1861, Com- 
aaadsr Maury fled fttnn the Obeenratory under 
tke mistaken apprehension that sundry treason- 
able acta of his had already been discorered. Only 
tsro hours previous to his fllf^t be had waited 
upon the Secretary of the Navy at his ofllce, and 
giran no intimation of any desire to resign, or of 
•■7 didoyal sentiment. It was subsequently 
tamad tbMt the preparations for Us departure had 
beea tor aome ttme going on ; but at the last his 
iMBte was ao mtX Uiat sundry documents were 
Ml bdiind which completely disclosed the Hct 
tkat, altlMQgh an officer of the U.S. Mavy, he had 
beeo oigaged in treasonable correspondence with

4mt texaally dismissed fi*om the serrice of the 
Uaited States, and Commander (now Captain) J. 
M. eUUaa. the orisina] builder of the Obserratory, 
wm appointed to his place. 

Dome the sixteen and a half years of Com- 
m "***■' Ifanry's superintendence, rery large sums 
WW annually Toted to the Obeenratory, for Ta- 
zlous purposes connected with its hydrographical 
oad astronomical operations, and fbr the reduction 
of obeerrmtlona. A large corps of assistants, both 
■acvml «m1 astronomical, were constantly on duty, 



and much hard W(vk was unqncstionablv

the Mural Circle by Professor Coffin, until his eye* 
titAt ftdled under the labor; his able discussions 
ec rcsults andl management of reductions until 
Ml aepvatton from the Obserratory in 1866; the 

■t investigations and refined methods of Pro* 
Hubbard, until his health, too, gave way

ObaaiTatory, until his death In the summw of

eC planets and comets which Mr. Ferguson carried 
oa vrfth the Bquatodal, with remarkable skill and 
ran asstdnity, nr some fifteen years ; the ingenuity 
of Piefussor Keith; the unwearying devotion and 
acconte obeervation of Professor Tamall ;— these, 
aad the exertions of other able and aealons men, 
all oontriboted towards the value of the results. 
Bat interqMrsed with theee were the observations 
ef mamr others, who had neither taste Ibr astro* 
Mosy, knowledge of its simplest laws, nor ao- 
foaintaaoe with tlie nature of Instruments. When 
erdsred to the Obstoratory by the Navy Depart- 
■snf. thev obeyed the order; when directed by 
the Supenntendent to observe, they observed as 
well M tbey could; nor are they to be blamed If 
ttabr obeervatioas are not of higfa value. Onlv 
1h0 mode of administration can be censured, 
wUcfa called on thoee neither fitted fbr the task 
Iqt laal* or education, to perform duties entirely 



out of Uie ttae of tiielr iiinffceiioii, and whieh %y 
Its total lack of system fUled to provide the requi- 
slte Instruction, nr even so to arrange the work 
that its value should not be entirely dependent on 
the ability and oonsciontiousnoss of the < ' 



And it is, moreover, a flagrant ground for censure 
that the observations of an Insdtution claiming ta 
rank in the first class should remain unreduced 
fbr ten, twelve, and oven fifteen years, while hun- 
dreds of thousands of dollars approprii^ by 
Consress and available fbr the purpose were ex- 
penaed in performing work of vwy questionable 
value and of very certain inaccuracy. 

The present Superintendent of the Obeenratory 
took charge of the InstHntlon at the close of 
April, 1861, and In February, 1862, the volume of 
obe«-vations for the year 1861 was sent to the 
printer. In the prefktory notice. Captain GilUss 
says:— 

^On taking charge of this establishment at the 
cloee of April last, I fbund that the following ob> 
servHtions, made prior to the 1st of January, 1861, 
had not been prei>ared for the press, tlMt^gh con- 
siderable pnwrees had been made in the reduo*

firom July, 1842. to October, 1844. 
Meteoroloi^cal Observations, from July, 1842; 

to December, 1860. 

** The xone and magnetical oboervatlons were dis- 
continued at the dates last named for each, and 
the Magnetical Instruments were never mounted 
after their removal fhim the building formerly 
occinried near Georgetown. 

** R being physically Impossible for the small 
corps of observers to compute their current obeer* 
vations and prepare tlUs mass of work ftA^print- 
Ing within anv reasonable period, a proposition 
was submitted to Hon. Gideon Welles, Secretary 
of the Navy, for authority to place the astronomi- 
cal portion in charge of a competent astronomer 
not connected with the Observatory. Appreciating 
the ikct that early publication measurably en- 
hances the value ot observations, the honorable 
Secretary recommended the measure to the favor- 
able consideration of Gongress ; and, the necessary 
authority having been granted by that honorable 
body, a corps of copyists was at once employed to 
transcribe on properly ruled forms all tne obsei^ 
vations contained In the record-books. 

**The progress already made in the computa- 
tions secures the publication ot a volume imme- 
diately after the present one can be passed through 
the press. After the copyists shall have com- 
pleted the Eone sheets, they will be employed In 
reducing the maffnetical and meteorologiod oIh 
servatioDs; and should no unfor e see n event occur 
to cause delay, the whole ot the observations will 
be preeented to the public within three years. 

** Commencing with the year 1861, It is designed 
that the meteorological observations shall consti- 
tute part of each annual volume."

tor the sonee obeenred with other inatmmeDts in 
thftt j^KT h«4 alflo boon completed, and as it yrill 
prolMtbly be within bonnd« to estimate the labor 

Suired for completing the redaction of these 
bteen eets of cones as being equal to that of 
adng twelve rolumes of the other current ob- 
serrationa, it will be safe to say, that, while but 
•ix out of the sixteen years' current obeerTations 
Ittd been reduced, only one-ninth part of the 
aone reductions had been completed, although 
these obnenrations were not continuea after the 
year 1851. None of the meteorological or mag- 
netical obsenrations had been prepared at all. 

A careltil examination of the data upon which 
the sone redactions most be based, led to the 
r^ection of the cones for 1860 and 1851 in total, 
as not possessing the requisites for successful com- 
putation. The amount of computation to be done 
was thus Tery much reduced, and the entire mass 
of remaining obserrations is now ready for the 
ininter,— with the exception of those cones which, 
although not containing within thoroselTes all the 
alements required, can yet be proTided with th«m 
by obserrations now making R>r the purpose. 

It would be unjust not to mention in thiH con- 
nection that the Equatorial obecrvations of Mr. 
Ferguson had for the most part already under- 
gone a preliminary reduction by that gentleman 
himself; and that Profosnor Yamall had In like 
manner, of his own accord,*done much towards 
preparing his own observations with the Mural. 
Still, at least flve-seventtu of all the astronomical 
work of the Observatory remained unroducod in 
April, 1861, as well as the whole of the meteoro- 
Ic^cal observations. The magnetic instruments 
were not employed, as has been stated. 

Ttie volume for 1862 was ready for the printer 
OB the 1st of January, 1863; and but for the dif- 
flcoity of obtaining promptness fW>m the Govern- 
mwit printing-ofBce under the present circum- 
stances, not only this but all the observations of 
the omitted years would long since have been 
published. The observations in 1861 give the ob- 
aonred positions of the sun, moon, planets, and 
about 1680 fixed stars. Those in 1802 embrace the 
positions of the moon at all hours, the sun, three 
ooraets, sixteen asteroidvall the large planets, 
many double stars, and 2267 fixed stars. And it 
Is b«Aieved that these observations are Inferior in 
accuracy and correctness of reduction to none 
made at any Observatory existing. There is also 
an elaborate discussion of the longitude of the 
Observatory, as deduced firom all the moon-culmi- 
nations obserred since 1845, and a series of corred 
illustrations of the aspects of Mars and of one of 
the comets as seen with the Equatorial. 

Among the important duties of the institution 
Is that of furnishing to all Government veesels 
the requisite charts and instruments for naviga- 
tlM&,— chronometers, sextants, compasses, spy- 
classes, log and sounding apparatus, fto. The 
balance of the appropriation for the fiscal year 
ending June 80, 1b61, which remained unexpended 
when the present Superintendent took charge 
at the end of April, sufficed to procure the reduc- 
tion of all the observations, and to equip lUl the 
vanels called into service by the omerconcies of 
the war. During the past year the establishment has 
kept five hundred vessels supplied with charts and 
iaatnimenta, being ten times the number which the 
whole Navy counted before the war ; and, best of 
alL this has been done under the now oittablished 
p«Ucy (for which we may thank the zeal of the 



Superintendent and the enlightened views of Che 
Navy Department) that the productioos of Am»> 
rican artists shall always be preferred, that tlM 
best mechanical talent in the country shall be 
stimulated to the construction of the instrumeata, 
until we may now proudly say that better nauti- 
cal instruments are made at home, and for a Icaa 
price, than evor came to us fhim Europe. 

The amount expended upon the **Wlnd and 
Current Charts" by the Observatory nnder Ita 
late Superintendent was about $330,000. If tfa^ 
were accurately prepared, and only proper mate- 
rial used, three hmes the amount would not have 
been too much to pay. But the Navy Department 
has recently referred the subfect of their conti- 
nuance to a committee of the National Academy ; 
and, if rumor speaks true as to tlie result at which 
they have arrived, it may well be doubted whe* 
ther science, navigation, or American reputation 
abroad have been advanced by the charts alluded 
to. 

Such has been the hlstorv of the Naval Obaer* 
vatory. While on the one hand it may, perfaapa, 
be questioned whether the advancement of science 
and the intellectual progress of the United Statea 
might not have been better subserved by as insti- 
tution on a less restricted bosis, by a truly na- 
tional Obsnratory, whose officers should be ap> 
pointed solely with reference to their scieutifla 
attainments without r^;ard to naval conunissiona, 
we may find much cause for satisfiwction that it la 
at present under the charge of an experienced 
observer, and that its present astronomical assist- 
ants are fitted for their positions both by taste 
and education. It is probably at this moment 
making a lai^^ amount of good obscrvatioits 
than any observatory in existence, the quality of 
the work as well as its quantity being caxeftUly 
regarded, and the constant aim being to direct 
the energies of the institution to such objects as 
the present condition of astronomy most dis- 
tinctly indicates to be desirable. The number of 
assistants is less by more than fourteen than the 
average number employed by the late Superin- 
tendent. 

During the year 1847, a dwelling for the Super- 
intendent was erected immediately ea«t of the 
Observatory; and in the following year the east 
wing was extended twenty-four feet, so as to con- 
nect it with the former building. The room thus 
added is used for the chronometers and other in» 
s^ruments belonging to the Navy. Of the foror 
rooms on each floor of the central building, one 
is occupied as a library-room and office for the 
Superintendent; two are filled with charts pn^ 
perly arranged for distribution to ships of the 
Navy, and the remainder on the first and second 
floors are assigned to the assistants. A standard 
clock by Keesels, and a standard barometer by 
Green, are mounted in the office of the Superin- 
tendent. One rot>m of the basement has been 
fitted as a workshop for the machinist; instru- 
ments returned fh>m ships and needing repairt 
ore temporarily placed in a second one ; and the 
other two are used for store-rooms. All of them, 
together with the separating halls, are heated by 
iron pipon through which hot water circulates 
from a boiler under the residence of the Superin- 
tendent. 

The present instruments of the Observatory are 
those with which it was originally provided, 
although roost of them have since undergone 
some mechanical or optical modification, In trwj

voted to nautiral and other instruments for naval 
purposes. CutH« to contain the chronometers, 
and shelves, ^c, are so disposed as to accommo- 
date the largest number and facilitate their ex* 
amlnation or distribution. The clock used in 
rating the chronometers was made for the old 
Depot of Chartti and Instruments by Messrs. Paik- 
inson k FrodAham, and is similar to that of the 
west wing. It U mounted upon a granite pier, la 
the southwest comer of the room, and, except the 
Kessols' cloclc, its performance is more satisfiotory 
than that of any other one beloncing to the esta* 
blishment To fikcilitate and render mam certain 
the comparison of chronometers when noise ren- 
ders the beat inaudible, it is provided with an 
electro-magnetic battery, connected by wires with 
a heavy-sounding tilt-hammer placed near the 
chronometer cases, which strikes seconds audibly 
at each impact of its pendulum index with the 
mercury globule. 

*'The Transit in the prime vertical is in the 
north room of tho south wing. The telescope has 
an aperture of 4.85 inches, and a focal length of 
seventy-eight inches. It is attached to one ex- 
tremity of an axis forty-two inches long, the other 
extremity carrying a counterpoise. The pivots of 
the axis are of fine steel, 3.5 inches in diameter, 
and are hollow. The telescope and its counter- 
poise are outside of the supporting pier, but their 
weights are transferred to the b^iring points of 
the Ys by levers and other counterpoises within 
the pivots and axis. Its pier is a wide monolith, 
whose centra] portion has been cut out for the ac- 
commodation of a reversing apparatus of spedal 
construction. 

"The instrument has not been in use for seve* 
ral years, and such had been its neglect that it was 
necMsary to dismount and grind out the oxidation 
of its pivots and make other extensive repairs. 
These were very successfully performed by Mr. 
William Wurdemann and the machinist, of the 
Observatory, and observations in the prime verti- 
cal are now made. 

♦♦ The clock was made by Charles Frodsham, and 
is mounted against a granite pier placed east of 
the prime vertical transit instrument. Instead 
of glass, it has a steel cylinder for the mercury of 
its penduhun, and the pendulum-rod screws into 
a <xp covering the upper part of it. The pendu- 
lum index has a single knife-edge, like the. clock 
of the west wrlnir.

M eaniiiig the Hnndredtli Fart of a Seoond. 



As a nutter of popular information for the 
benefit of those who read and wonder at the 
accounts of astronomical observations which re- 
cord the movements of the heavenly bodies to 
tht htmdredthpart qf a geeond of time, we extract 
fh>m a pamphlet issued by one of our colleges the 
following description of the instrument fluod the 
method by which that wonder is performed. 

The elegant instrument of Prof. W. C. Bond, 
known as the ** Magnetic Register,** or ** Spring 
Governor,** is one, by and upon which, through 
the influence of electro-magnetism, the instant of 
time at which an obsorraoon takes place can be 
precisely recorded. By means of very delicate 
machinery regulated by the " Spring Governor,** 
a contrivance at once peculiar and beautifVil, a 
horizontal cylinder, thirteen Incboa long and six 
in diameter. Is made to revolve with ^eat uni- 
formity, predsely once per minute of sidereal 
time. Around this cylinder is clamped a sheet 
of paper; and upon this rests a glass pen filled 
with Ink, which, as the cylinder turns from under 
it. marks a line fhim end to end of the sheet. 
Tnis line, in length. Is the exact measure of the 
duration of one minute of time. Upon the op- 
posite end of a delicate lever, to which the glass 
pen is attached, is a small vortical iron bar, known 
as an " armature,** resting close in front of, but 
not in contact with, the ** poles'* of a soft Iron 
horseshoe magnet. This magnet Is colled with 
wire, and Is In the circuit of a galvanic battery. 



which circuit Is also, by an ingenious _ 
ment, made to pass through a fine sted spring 
dipping into a globule of nulcksilver directly be- 
neath the pendulum of a sidereal clock. Attached 
to the lower extremity of the pendulum is a small 
Ivory index, which, at every vibration, drives the 
little spring out of the mercury, but instantly on 
passing, allows It to return. In this manner the 
circuit Is almost instantaneously iNroken and 
closed, at the termination of each second of time; 
and this *' break** 'and ** make"* of circuit are at 
once answered by the pen, in obedience to the 
action or rest of the magnet with which it Is oott- 
nected,thu8 dotting upon the sheet, as it revolvsa^ 
the sixty seconds constituting the minute of its 
revolution. The movement of the "armature** 
from the magnet during the instantaneous re* 
lease of the latter from the influence of the 
galvanic circuit, is effected by a little bow spring; 
and, in order that the pen shall not return upon 
the lines already described, the whole magnet ia 
moved forward on a miniature railwav, by means 
of a cord passing round the axle of one of the 
main wheels of the " Spring Governor.** By means 
of this instrument and a "brMk circuit** keT, 
alwavs near his hand, the observer, by simply 
touching a delicate spring, is enabled to rsoord 
with the utmost degree of precision in among tbe 
second marks of the clock, the time of any ob* 
servatlon he may wish to obtain, to the huadredtk 
part of a second.

A ooaparlioa between the years 1860 and 1862 
ai%nila a high state of agricultural prosperity. 
tla% however, cannot be attributed altogeUier to 
aMyidnr adrance^ but, to some extent, to the 
tet that the crop of 1860, of which the Census 
«M tekMi, was below an ayerage crop, whilst 
that af 1882 was the best erer before produced. 
Aa etof or Tobacco is the only one exhibiting a

decrease, and this was caused by the war in Ken- 
tucky and Missouri, which SUtes, in 1860, pro* 
duosd 183,188,628 lbs. One-fourth of this was do- 
ducted in the estimates for 1868, on account of 
the war. The Tobacco crop, in 1860, of ad the 
States, was 420,864.761 lbs., and that of the loyal 
States, in 1863, 267,302,770 lbs., a difference of 
162,061,081 lbs., showing that, greatly as this crop 
has been increased, it may yet be ftirther in- 
creased with profit. 

The aggregate of the summer crops of 1868 sur- 
passes that of 1862, large as it was. But the fall 
crops, with the exception of Tobacco, are less, and 
especially the national crop of Corn. This do* 
crease is attributable to two cauMS, the drought 
of eariy summer in Iowa, Wisconsin, Illlnoii^ In- 
diana and Ohio, and to the early and destructire 
/rotU of August 30th and September 18th. The 
Tbbocco crop, also, was much injured by the first 
of these frosts, but as much of It had been har- 
Tcsted before the frost, and the acreage planted 
much greater than that of 1862, the yfold ex- 
ceeded that of 1862. 

The fro.^ts in the Mississippi Talley, during the 
summer and foil of 1868, are so remarkable, and 
were so destructive, that a more particular refor* 
ence to them is demanded. 

Brought and cold seem to be associated. ** The 
cold winter,'* says Mr. Flint, In his article on the 
climate of New Bngland, **of 1607, resembling 
that of 1641, preceded a summer marked by** 
sore and long-continued drought' in July and 
August. In 1748 the drought was intense in New 
England ; and this summer was followed by so 
hard a winter that * the suffering was intense.' " 
In 1740 there was another seTcre drought, and 
this summer was succeeded by a winter so hard 
*' that it was difflcolt to keep cattle aliire." In 
1761 there was another ••melancholy dry time;** 
the winter following "long and dreary;" and the 
summer of 1762 accompanied by a drought of 
"terrible severity .** Without rvforring to any 
more instances during the earlier history of the 
country, we may cite the droughts of 1864 and 
1866, and the winters following these years, as 
still fresh in the recollection of all, for their in- 
tense severity. 

In the Mississippi Talley, the spring of 186S 
was unfavorable generally, on account of severe 
drought In May and June, and, in extensive dis- 
tricts, continuing into July. The drought, In the 
Eastern States, gave way. in June, to fiivorable 
rains; but, in many parts of niinois, Indiana, 
Iowa and Ohio, it continued in great severity dar- 
ing June, and part of July, when mln fell in 
these States, it was sncceednd, about the middle 
of July, by an extenriro froj«t in the west and 
north-western States, ** sufiSciently serere, in low 
situations, to injure com, sorgbum, and toma- 
toes." 

Favorable weather followed this frost, during 
which the foil crops rapi<Ily advanced, and pro- 
mised a favorable yield. The weather, generally, 
was very warm. But, on the 22d of August, the 
thermometer rapidly fell in Minnesota, and, in 
less than a day, the change was twenty-three de- 
grees. It conUnned to den^nd, and, on the 
morning of the 20th, ice formed, about an eighth 
of an inch in tbicknes.^ and com was killed In

plMM. In Mebnu^ka, Iowa imd Wi»ron«in, the 
fall, daring the unine dnys, wiw more than thirty- 
two degreen. In Kansas and .Mii^ftouri the change 
waa aa ffreat, but took place between the night 
of the 23d and that of the iiOtb. In IlUnoia, Indi- 
ana and Michigan, tlie fall, in the thermometer, 
waa to the name number of defnven, although tlie 
time wax between the 24th and aist. But the cold 
lUr was ao far mitigated, when it had reached the 
middle of Ohio, aa to be of little i^Jnry to the cropa. 

The atmospherical oonditiona, Immediately pre- 
eedlng those changes, were strong winds, blowing 
fh>m the south-west, Teering to the west, then to 
the north-west, and settling doe north. They 
blew with Tiolenoe orer l^ke Saperior, and exhi- 
bited all the charaeterlstica of a oold storm. The 
destrnction by this fkiist was Tery irregular; one 
field was doatroyed, whilst an adjoining one was 
untoucJied, showing that warm and cold currents 
of air were in oontact, but not blended in a uni- 
form temperature. In low planes, unprotected by 
fttgp, the crops suffered most, because the oold air, 
being heariest, flowed Into low places, displacing 
but not mixing with the warm air over them. 
The uplands suffered least, for the warm air, ele- 
rated by the oold air underneath, spread over 
them. Hills protected crops lying immediately 
south of them, by checking the progress of the 
cold air coming from the north. All theae phe- 
nomena indicate that the cold air came fh>m the 
extreme north. But meteorolo^ cannot satisfac- 
torily determine the causes that brought it south- 
wards. When general rains fall, the diange from 
Tapor to rain, in oondensation, liberatea an im- 
mense latent heat, which rapidly raises the tem- 
perature of the air into which it passes, causing 
its rapid ascension. The motion would extend to 
the air beneath, especially when warm, and the 
vacuum thus created would be filled by the oold 
air from the north. Again, when the atmosphere 
next to the earth Is greatly heated, a aimilar a»- 
cension would be the result, prodndng a Tacuum 
which would be filled in a like manner. In these 
dianges, the surrounding atmosphere becomes im- 
plicated, resulting in the general displacement 
noticed. Or it may be that terrestrial magnetism 
and the electrical condition of the air and earth 
are the chief causes. In the Monthly Report of 
the Agricultural Department, it is aaid, that 
*' changes, similar In kind, though less distinctly 
marked, so fitr from being unusuHl, are exhibited 
in the meteorological records of every season." 
This is true of the climate of the Mississippi Val- 
ley, which having no mountain range to intercept 
the north and north-west winds, or any warm sir 
of ocean currents to mitigate them, is expoeed to 
the greatest extremes of atmospheric changes. 
But frosts, so untimely and so seTere, are, fortu- 
natnly, sddom experienced there. 

After the frost of the 80th of August, the wea- 
ther continued cool for scTeral days, during which 
the crops made but little progress in maturing, 
and the earth rapidly cooled. But on the 13th 
of September a rapid elevation of the temperature 
took place, reaching, in Nebraska, to eighty-three 
degrees. But, on the 16th, it rapidly fell, and, on 
the 18th, had (alien forty-six degrees below the 
temperature of the 13th. On the 18th, the fro»t 
was general throughout the West, and, on account 
of the cooling of the earth, fkr more destmctive 
than the fl-ost of August It had a similar pro- 
gress to that one : the winds were the same, occu- 
pying about two days iu passing from the remote 



western States to the ettstam, and raoalvfnf Am 
same modification of teiuperatnre in tbair pa» 
sage. The causes producing these frosts were ap- 
parently the same. They were preceded by great 
heat, rains following, accompanied with high 
winds, which changed rapidly from the aoatb to 
the north by the west. 

On the 22d of October, a snow fell over nearly 
all of the West, commencing in Utah on the 18th, 
at Green Bay, in Wisconsin, on the 22d, at Fort 
Riley. Kansas, at St. Paul, Minneaota, in lllinoia 
and Indiana on the same day, changing to rain In 
Ohio and eastward, and reaching the ocean abont 
the 24th. This snow seems to have been attended 
with the same peculiarities as the fWtsta. .\t 
Oreen Bay, it tell to the depth of one Saoit-mxtd la 
Indiana of about three inches. 

Sinoe then, the weather waa favorabla to the 
recently-sown crops for 1864, and for all flu»- 
work. Pastures were in good condition, and 
farm-stock required no other fbod up to the mid- 
die of December.

From the Annual Report of the Agricaltaral 
Department for 1802, we take the following ax> 
tract. 1 1 is from the report of Mr. Boll man. Chief 
Clerk of the Statistical Division of that Depart- 
ment, to the CommlssionerofAgricnlturw, in whk^ 
from the Census sUtistics of I860 and 1S60, he ooa- 
ments on the great agricultural proaparlty of the 
country during the decade between these Taara. 

No one, he says, can examine the tablea of 
those statistics wlthont making a compnriMm be- 
tween the progress of the sections of our country 
now known as the loyal and disloyal States, so that 
be may aee the causea, if any exist, which h«T« 
led to a rebellion now desolating so many por- 
tions of the South, and consigning to unknown 
and premature gravaa ao many American oiti- 
xens. 

The following table will aid in Instituting such 
comparison. It shows the per cent, increaw, trom 
1860 to 1860, of the principal agricultural prodoo* 
tiona of both sections :

Great as has been the agricultural pmsp<*rltj 
of the oountry during the last decennlnl period 
between 1860 and I860, we see that the irAUth haa 
not only shared in it. but has outstripped the 
North. Such prosperity fully sustains the decla- 
ratlona of Mr. Stephens, in his reply to Mr. 
Toombs, when tlie former was opposing tba M«e*- 
tion of Georgia from the Union. He said »

Kortb, grown great, prosperous, and happy under 
the operation of the general GoTemment? Has 
any part of the world ever shown such rapid pro- 



gress in the deTelopment of wealth, and all of the 
material resources of national power and great- 
ness, as the Southern States have under tho 
general OoTemment, notwithstanding all Itp

The annexed statistics of the annual export of breadstuffs for a scries of years is from the Circular 
of If a. KowAsn Bill. The export trade of this country, in brftadstuflii, to Great Britain and Ireland 
Ibr the past three years, has greatly exceeded that of any former period, and Its Imporunce is duly 
aetlaated by all reflecting minds. The tables are made up to the end of the cereal year, and may be

claring that the oetlmfttcs are eren too low; but, 
overborne by the prevsiilinp; doctrines of tlie 
** diduiul sohool," be deserts his data and bis convic- 
tions, and simply adds tbirty>tiiree and a third per 
cent, for the Increase of twenty years, for no as- 
signable reason except that McCuIloch had said, 
"sixty years is the shortest time in which the 
capital of an old and denst^Iy-peopled country can 
be expected to be doubled." But, according to 
Lowe and Porter, the wealth of the kingdom 
nearly doubled In eighteen years — firom 1823 to 
1841 ; according to Porter and Levi, it increaaed 
60 per cent, in seventeen years, at which rate it 
would double in about twenty-nine years. Por- 
ter's estimate for 1841 is an increase over tho 
amount at which these people put the valuation 
in 1812, at a rate which would double in thirty- 
two years. Levi's £6,000,000,000 in 1858 is an In- 
crease of 185i per cent, in forty-six years, and 
would be 126i per cent, on Ck>lquhoun's estimate, 
if his *' extravagant hypotheses and exaggera- 
tions" were accepted as the true valuation of 1812. 
Nothing can save these calculators from still 
greater extravagance than they charge upon Col- 
qnhoun, but their admission that his statement is 
moderate and Just. Thus McCuUoch's sixty-year 
period of doubling is totally demolished, oven by 
the showing of those who have permitted them- 
selves to bo overruled by it. Pobrer quotes a 
report of the House of Commons in 1830, which 
showed that in Ireland the increase of wealth 
was far greater than of population. He knew 
that this was also true of France. He even states 
tho general opinion of all the economists of the 
productive school in confirmation; yet he submits 
■o far to the " authorities" as to assign a much 
lower rate of increase in the wealth than in the 
population of the United Kingdom for the period 
ttom 1812 to 1833. 

Leone Levi, one of the latest and most approved 
of this sect of economists, puts tho increase of 
the nation's wealth at 122 per cent, iu the period 
1800 to 1841, and at 60 per cent, from 1841 to 1858, 
an accurately even rate of accumulation, — ^for as 
41Is to 122, so is 17 to 50. This is arithmetic, not 
enumeration, estimation, or appraisement. A 
period, one-half of which elapsed before the 
modem improvements in manufactures and agri- 
culture were fidrly introduced, cannot approach 
such equality of wealth-producing power with 
that which covers all the productive agencies 
brought into service between 1811 and 1858. 

The estimates which, for want of authorities, we 
have supplied, are made in conformity with the 
doctrines and data of those qnoted in the table. 
The results show that no concordance can be 
effected, and help to expose the absence of theo- 
retic and practical truth, in the principles and 
process which they adopt 

All the English statisticians exclude the British 
national stocks or funds, and all bonds, mortgages, 
acceptances, and other evidences of domestic 
debt, from their estimates of the people's wealth. 
Lowe rejects jewelry, household furniture, and 
oroaments; he admits the houses that twenty 
millions of people live in, and the lumber they 
are made of, but he excludes the wearing-apparel 
they live in, while he puts the rendy-niade manu- 
factures at as high a figure as Colquhoun does. 
UcCnlloch's definition of capital excludes jewelry, 
but embraces race-horses; with him it is nothing 
but ••that porUon of the produce of industry 
which maybe made directly available, either for 
the support of human eslBtonce, or the CMUitating 



of prodnction.** This is what capital means fn 
the current language of tradesmen ; but he gives 
it as the true dutinition in the science of political 
economy. Pebrer includes the industry of a na- 
tion iu bis definition as if he intended to capitiUiM 
it, but, of courrf*s ho gives only the value of im- 
plements and machinery, and not of tho men and 
women that employ them in production. 

Statisticians are generally held to be eminently 
practical people; on tho coutrai-y, they are more 
given to theorizing than any other class of writem, 
and are generally less expert in it. 

2. The annual products of industry and capital, 
as stated in percentage of tho capital-wealth of 
the British Empire, look as if they might bo tme^ 
and might also afford a law of the relation. They 
hold a pretty regular proportion to the given 
capital through all the periods tabled, declining 
in proportion as capital increases, which is doubt- 
less truo; but, closely examined, these annual in- 
comes appear to come by arithmetical rules, or 
are at least controlled by them. They decline 
from 15 to 10 per cent, of tho capital in sixtj'-five 
years with tolerable regularity, but there is no 
law of the subject in them, for they are certainly 
not true fiGM:ts. When the distributive share of 
each person in the product of the year is ex- 
amined, it is manifestly inadequate at onco to the 
current support of the people and the constant 
accumulation of wealth, though taken at its 
lowest statement. 

We conclude that tho authorized estimates of 
the capital and annual income of tho British 

Seople need reformation, and, cspecUJly, that the 
octrines of Malthus and Ricardo must be dis- 
carded by their statisticians if the facta and 
figure of universal experience are ever to get 
allowance. 

3. Capital wealth and annual product of the 
United States and of the loyal States: — 

The first attempt to obtain the data by actual 
investigation was made by tho United States Mar- 
shals in 1840. Since that time we liave official 
valuations more and more complete at the end of 
each census decade. That these tliree inventories 
of the property of the Union are all defective in 
tho matters intended to bo embraced, and under- 
stated also in valuation, is well known. There is 
not an item in which they are suspected of over- 
statement. 

We are lndel>ted to Professor Tucker for hit 
digest of the Census of 1840, and to him and the 
Secretary of tlu) Treasury (Mr. Guthrie) for the 
like sen-ice in 1850. Tlie valuation of property 
in 1860 for the Union and for the loyal Statw*, we 
have fkt>m the Cemtis Bureau. From the ofHdat 
returns of both 1850 and 1860, wo have subtracted 
the value of the slaves, which was included in 
the official aggregates, holding them, fbr all the 
purposes of our inquiry, as producers and con- 
sumers of wealth, and not as property, otherwise 
than the laborers of any other counti^ are a part 
of their national wealth and resources. 

The property value of the loyal States at mid- 
summer, 1863, we have estimated by adding to its 
amount in 1860 tho average increase of the decade 
ending tluit year, and not at the market-prices 
ruling In 1863. 

Tlio estimates for the other periods In tho tabla 
for which no authority is qnoted, are our own, 
under guidance of suoh data as we coald com- 
mand. 

Tho valne of the year's products in 1860 is ob- 
tained by taking the agricnltmml piquets of tfant

the value of the niMiufiftcturcs ooo-third tor the 
mw niAteriale, which are included in the esti- 
mate of the agricaltural values; and by adding 
400,000,000 for the profits of commerce. 

We have not room, here, to descril>e the procees 
by which we obtain the year's product for 1800 in 
toe lojfol 8tat«s. No labor or care has been 
q>ared in obtaining it. 

The annual product put down in the table to 
the United States in the several periods, is in all 
instances greatly below the .truth. The share 
iUlowed to each person stands at $02.28 in 1840, 
and at $80.41 in 1850; but the expenditure or 
consumption per head, in these years, cannot be 
estimated at leas than $100; and the consumption 
per h^ul in 1860 was at least equal to the amount 
allowed by the stated production of the year. 
Beside this deficiency of provision for the current 
rabsistenco of the people, there is the accumula- 
Hon of capital wealth to be accounted for, amount< 
log to 3,410,000,000 in the former period, and to 
the enormous sum of 8,009,000,000, or an increase 
of 130 per cent^ in the hktter. 

We need not stop here to estimate the sponta- 
BeouB growth of our national wealth, or that en< 
bancement of value which occurs in real estate 
bv the rapid settlement of our wild lands, and 
auwMt as rapid growth in the value of the fixed 
property in the older States, which, of course, 
would account for a very considerable part of the 
apparent disinrity between the property value 
and the annual production, because on unques- 
tionable deficiency in the reported products occurs 
in the following particulars, for which the Census- 
takers are not responsible : — 

Thtj take no account of the current consump- 
tion c^ our agricniturists -and of their (amilles 
and employees. In 1840, this class amounted to 
three-fourths of the total popuhuion, and ap- 
proached the same proportion in 1850; nor are 
any manufiKrturing or meclumical products of the 
Tear returned whose annual value falls below 
$600, Beside all this, which probably amounts to 
oae-fonrth of the total annual product, no account 
li taken of the labor employed in clearing and 
Improving land, in building riiilroadB, canals, 
boosea, manufactories, steamships, and other voe- 
•ale; nor of the htbor employed in coal-mines; 
nothing of the prodncts of the fine arts, nor of a 
large portion of the products of the usefhl arts ; 
all of wliich may be very safely stated as equal to 
half the value of the agricultiural and manufnc- 
toring products noticed by the Census -takers.

; these appear in the valuation of the pro- 
perty of the country in the decennial Census 
appraisementB, and help to swell the obvious dis- 
parity. The very considerable increase of the 
values of 1863 over those of 1800, is owing to the 
fmct that the growth of wealth in the loyal States 
te so ranch great«r than the average enhancement 
in the whole Union before the severance of the 
c«timate4 given' in the tabular statement. The 
■MMt surprising of our statements are precisely 
those which have been most carefully considered 
and best verified. 

4. Population colnnm. No official ennmeratiun 
of the people of England, Wales, and Scotland 
was made previous to tlie year 1801, and no com- 
plete enomeration in Ireland till 1821. The popu- 
btiun of the United Kiugtlom for otlier years 
•tated, la obtahied by cakuhition. 



Hie population of the United States for every 
Census-year, is the official return for the date. 
For other years it is estimated by Tucker's rule 
of 8 per cent, increase per annum, except for the 
loyal States in 1863, to which his rule does not 
apply. In time of peace, with immigration at ita 
average rate, the loyal States would have had a 
population of 24,500,000 in June, 1663; but allow- 
ing iialf a million for loss by the casualties of 
war, deficiency of births, and of customary immi- 
gration,— considerably too large an allowance, — 
would leave 24,000,000 as we have stated it. In 
the number given to the loyal States in 1860, the 
Census returns for that year are exactly followed, 
the counties which now constitute West Virginia 
being included. 

6. British debt. The authority for the amount 
of British debt and annual charge Onterest and 
management), is the financial reports presented 
to Parliament and published by order of the 
House of Commons, except for the year ending 
March 31, 1863, which is taken fh>m the Royia 
Almanac for 1864, in which, however, the capital 
of the unfunded debt is not given. We have cal- 
culated it fW>m the rates of interest which its 
items severally bear. 

It must be observed that the Exchequer bills 
ref|uirod to meet deficiencies of the last quarter 
of the current y<Hur, and which are issued in the 
first quarter of the ensuing year, are not included 
in the first statement of the debt and interest. 
This deficiency was, in March, 1 862, nearly 2,000,000 
poimds sterling. Moreover, very considerable dif- 
ferences of the total amount of the debt and an- 
nual charge are met with in the best authorities. 
Some of Ihem capitalize the terminable annuities, 
adding the amount to- the ^'debt;'* some charge 
them to the annual intotcst account, and some 
overlook them. Properly they have no principal, 
nor do they represent the« interest of cash bor» 
rowed and paid into the Exchequer. They gene- 
rally express the depredation of loans, or part of 
the depreciation of loans sold at a nominal price 
above their market value. Generally, they are 
compensatory payments. Nevertheless their arith- 
metical principal is as much a part pf the debt 
proper as aro the consols, which art perpettuxl an- 
nuities, have no principal demandable by the 
holders, and whose capital is simply the market- 
price at which they sell at the brokers board. 
They differ fVom the United States debt in this, 
tltat the Exchequer is under no contract to pay or 
reimburse the capital of the debt at any time. 

The very considerable variance of the debt and 
annual charge in 1858 and 1861, was occasioned by 
the expiry of terminable annuities in 1859 and 
1860. 

The increase of the capital of the debt in 1858 
over its amount in 1S50 was produced by a loan 
of £16,000,000 taken in April, 1855, by the Messrs. 
Rothschild at the rate of £100 in consols for every 
£100 cash subscribed, and a terminable annnlty 
for thirty years of 14«. 6c/. for every £100 of »toi k, 
— that is, at tlie rate of 3.725 per cent for thirty 
years, and 3 per cent, thereafter. This js reckoned 
as equivalent to a loan in consols at 87 1, wijlch i:< 
the same thing as saying that the loan was con- 
tracted at 3.425 per cent. The Increase of the 
debt in 1863 over the amount in 1860-1, may be 
accounted for by an excess of expenditure over 
ordinary revenue In 1861 and 1862, resulting, in 
1863, in an increase of the total debt of about 
$15,000,000. 

The annual charge in 1863 waa lessened as com-

ri8«4r 



pared with that of 1858 upon a nearly equal prln> 
dpal, in part by tho expiry of terminable annol- 
llea, chai^;ed as interest, and in part bT the re- 
daoed rate of interest on the floating debt in the 
latter year; banlc interest ranging through the 
flsoal year 1858 at 5 to 10 per cent, and in the year 
ending March, 1863, at 2i to 3 per cent^ and in 
the money-market foiling from 12 per cent, in tho 
former to 6 and 5 in the latter ; besidee, 5,000,000 
of Exchequer bonds oatstanding in 1858 were re- 
duced to ^418,800 in 1863. 

These statements are made to caution the reader 
against authors who report the debt and charge 
from official summaries. Upon turning from such 
tabular statements to the account of annual ex- 
penditure published under tho same official 
sanction, it will be found that the amount of the 
annual charge sometimes varies as much as 
£3,000,000. 

6w United States debt and interest Our debt is 
official for erery period stated. For 1863 it is 
given as it stood on the books of the Treasury on 
me 1st of October. It is treated in the other 
columns of the table as chargeable upon the peo- 

8Ie and property of the loyal States only. And 
tie annual interest stated is the amount which 
the principal would carry for the year ending 
October 1, 1864. if the principal remained so long 
mchanged. The proportion of this Interest to 
the annual income of the year, is stated at 1^ per 
oant This would be true if the annual income 
of the people were correctly given ; but if, as we 
ffoppoae, this is put down at two-thirds of its real 
amount, the burden of interest upon the people's 
inoome would be something less tnan nine-tenths 
of 1 percent. 

The proportion of the total debt of the United 
States to the private property of the loyal Stipes, 
■tated at 8f per cent, nearly, means that the value 
of oar property in 1863, at the prices ruling be- 
fore the rebellion, if standing at the amount given 
in the pnq;>erQr-colamn twenty years hence, or at 



the matority of the debt, would b« aa $100 to 
$8.77 of debt, and takes no account of the en- 
hancement of our wealth in the mean time. 
What that shall be when the debt is to be reim- 
bursed, cannot now be foretold or even imagined. 
If it shall increase during the two next decennial 
periods following the year 1868, at the rate of the 
period between 1850 and 1800, the sum will be 
above 70,000,000,000, or double the preeent com- 
puted value of Great Britain and Ireland; and a 
debt of 2,000,000,000 would then be lees than 3 
per cent upon the principal of the wealth pledged 
for its ultimate discbarge, while the burden of its 
interest upon the annual income of the ooonti-y 
would be lessened in corresponding proportion. 

If we take the estimated w^th of Great 
Britain to be equally underrated in 1816 and in 
1858, we see how the burden of national debt d^ 
clines relatively to the value of the property 
which must pay it. In these forty-two years the 
incumbrance fell from 40 to 18 per cent of the 
national wealth, while the capital of the debt waa 
raduced lees than 3,000,000 on 4,200,000,000, or tho 
burden fell fh>m 40 to 18, while the debt fell onlj 
as ftx>m 40 to 37. or, in other words, the debt of 
1858 would have been a charge of 87i per cent oa 
the property of 1816, but was only 18^ per cent 
of the property of 1868. The debt of the United 
States in 1810 was a charge of 7 per cent on the 
property of that day; in 1860 it would have been 
no more than nine-tenths of 1 per cent.; and a 
debt of 1^222,000,000, which is Ff per cent of tha 
computed wealth of the loyal States in IftBS, 
would, at a rate of increase in valuation in tha 
next twenty years no greater than occurred Ib 
the last ton years, sink to I A per cent 

Our tabular statement, wiih these hints, is anb- 
mitted as a study in financial statistics. Sk- 
haustive tabulation is a sort oi crows harrowing 
of the subject, which Is its best and most search- 
ing exploration, and the best method of geCtteg 
at the use and value of the data.

Tha increase of the total population of the 
United States in the ten years, 1860-60, was 85 J2 
per cent. — of the total population of the fi«e 
States, 41.62 per cent; of the loyal States, 40.22 
per cent; of the total population of the rebel 
States, 25.37 per cent.: of the free population of 
the rebel States, 26.32 per cent; of the slave 

Spulation of the rebel States, 23.5 per cent.; of 
e whole slave population of the Union, 28.38 
Ssr cent; and of the total ft'ee colored popula- 
on, 12.3 per cent 

Tho increased value of tho property of the 
United States in the same period (1850—1860) 
was 129.7 per cent— of the pK^erty of the tno 
States, 124^52 per cent; of the loyal slave States, 
182.04 per cent.; of the rebel slave States, 139.76. 

Sie value of the slaves in neither case included.) 
greater increased per cent, of the wealth of 
the slave than of the tne States, in the decade, is 
mainly attributable to the quantity of cotton 
produced in the period, and the price it com- 
manded. From 1840 to 1850, the export-* of cotton 
to foreign countries were valued at $533,000,000, 
and at an average of 7.7 cents per pound ; in the 
period 1850 to 1860, the exports amounted to 
$1,23&000,000, at an average of lOi cents per 
pound. To this must be added their exports of 
iobaooo, rice, and breadstuff and provisions, and 
the amount of all these articles sold to the North- 
am States. But to understand the value of this 



greater increase as expressed In percentaga, tt 
most be recollected that the capital wealth of tha 
rebel States in 1850 was but $2^000,006, aUraa 
included, while that of the loyal Statea «m 
$4,846,000,000,— the latter having increased their 
capital $6,050,000,000, the former but$2,018.000,oe6; 
— the Census valuation of the slaves being eoi- 
braced in these aggr^tes. But the character 
of this enhanced wealth is also a matter of prima 
importance in estimating its worth as a meaaora 
and index of prosperity. The real estate of tha 
rebel Statee, as reported by the marshals in I860, 
was 43 per cent and the poraonal 57 per cent of 
their property; while in tne loyal States tiie real 
was 66 per cent, and the personal but 34. TIm 
average ratio of real to p«nsonal estate in New 
York, Massachusetts, and Penneylvania, is 75 f-ar 
cent, of the total, or ^ against -f^ the average 
of the rebel States. South Carolina, Qeorgia, and 
North Carolina have but 30 per cent of their 
wealth in real estate, and 70 in personal. The 
proportion of fixed to floating capital in a natkm 
is the truest measure of its real wealth and of ila 
grade of civilization. Among savages land ia 
worth little, and its improvMnents nothing; real 
property scarcely exists. In the higliest dviUa*. 
tion and greatest prosperity, real estate prepoude- 
rnteti, and its degree of excess over personal, 
measures and expressrt the national welfora.

The Seeretary of War authorised the appoint-

and practices connected with the inspection of re- 
cruits and enlisted men; the sanitary condition of

Tba e a erg ise of the Commission were first 
Jh e ei ed to a thorough inspection of the Camps 
aad Hoepiteli 9t the Army. To this end a corps 
9t medieal experts was formed, composed of those 
who bad devoted time to hygiene and other sub- 
Jeeteheeriaff upon the well-being of troops. Regi- 
meate were not only Tisited on their entrance 
toto service, but at steted periods afterwards; 
amrs of diet, or treatment of the men, were 
aejaud one to the oAcer, and assistonoe rendered 
W every way to enable the latter to obtain the 
neatest po<wible effldeney ftom his command. 
Wherever, through ignorance or fhtud, on the 
part of Quartermasters and Commissaries, the sol- 
dier was deprived of such advantages as were bis 
duSk the defoet was examined into, traced to Ite 
eansc, and then pursued until redress was ob- 
tained l^oii the proper authority. 

As the wer advanced. It was found that all the 
■oppllee which eould be collected by the Govern- 
ment would be inadequate to the wanto of the 
iiek and wounded. Tlie people were desirous of

coatributions* without the help of an organisa- 
tloa tborooghlv trained and skilled in militery

and wonM insure detzimeat to diseipUDe. The 



Commission then undertook this task of distrlbu* 
tion,— becoming the recognised almoners of a 
nation's good will to her soldiers^ The distribu- 
tion has always been preferably made in accord- 
ance with the vrritten stetement of a medical 
officer as to the existence of want. In this way it 
has acted, even in ite relief work^ as a body sup- 
pUmmUny to the rmlar Medical Bureau. Ite 
business is not flkolt-nnding, but relief- bringing, — 
to prevent suffering wherever po88ible,~nnd, 
wherever suffering is found, to aid the regular 
medical officers to alleviate it in such ways as they 
m^ indicate. 

We do not dwell upon certain new features 
grafted upon the Medical Bureau, through the In- 
fluence of the Commission, in which particular It 
has simply given intelligible utterance to the 
feelings of the people, whoee representative it is.

since been evaporatMl, the sborlcoiiiiuKS uf the

tbey oftQ be proTeu to b«i elosrf or bindeniDctw,

ter adapted for the emergeocy. Our war is for 
Natioual existence; and while no expeDse i« 
ppared in carrying out all its details, that which 
i« involved in supplying the wants of the men is 
stylrd extravagance by no one. 

Thtj Commission has distributed clothing, oon- 
ccDtratml food, firesh vegetables, stimulants, read- 
ing matUtr, etc, to the value of |7 ,000,000. This 
has beeu raised all through the land. It has 
come in gold and silver bars from California and 
Kevada, in oontribuiions from patriotic Amert- 
eaun living abruad, and from the aged <»ires, anx- 
ious mothers, and warm-hearted sisters of the 
soldiers now toiling in the field. Little sewing 
drclee, in villages, have reckoned it a great privP 
l^e to conuibute their mite to the soldier, and 
have consigned it to the Commission with full 
confidence that it would reach some one whose 
needs it would supply. The prayers of thousands 
bav« been poured Ibrlh in it« behalf. 

Our space prevents us giving more than a very 
brief outline of the modus operandi of this pecu- 
liar auxiliary to the great war. The work of tJie 
Commission is carried on under two general 
heada— 7nspec/ton and JUliff. For the first, a 
oorpv of medical officers, known as Sanitary Jn- 
iWcUfrSy has been created, whose members are 
distributed through all the gruut Armies of the 
United States. Their business is to carry on a 
regular series of inspections of the troops and Hos- 
pitals, 80 as to keep the Cbii-f of inspection 
inform^ of their condition. In makin;< these 
inspections, It is expected tbut tbeyconfei >..rectly 
with the officers in charge, and aid them, by ad- 
vice, or otherwise, in any emergencies that may 
require such aid. Wherever defects occur, their 
buNinees is especially to solicit remedial means 
from the officer directly in charge, and, if this 
source of relief fail, then to report the case to 
others higher in authority. Tbey nre not sent to 
pry uut the wenk points, but to aid in strength- 
ening such. These duties, which may te called 
advisory and prnventive, do nut cuuslituto the 
whole of the Inspector's duty. He bus also scien- 
tific duties, comprising the collection of statistical 
data, the examination of local causes of disease^ 
the efiects of certain kinds of clothing, food, of 
loni^ marches, etc., eic.,upon the men, and other 
subjects calling forth a high order of profehsional 
training. 

The work of iPe/iV/is divided into two kinds, 
that which is rendered in accordance with ihe 
order of a mudical offic*fr, and that which is given 
directly to the soldier, separate from his command 
or liotipitMl, and which is styled Special Meh^. 
For the due execution of the first, the Commia- 
siou has rugulur i^t»ecial Kelief Agents in every 
army, aud others who vihii hospitals likely to be 
in « uut of necessary articIeK. The people demand 
that no soldier suffer, if help can reach him. 
These Relief Agents are their uiiuislers. They do 
not only visit comfortable hospital.^ in out-of-the- 
way places of »ecurity, but live in the Army, and 
are found on the baitli*-field, as at the battle of 
Gettysburg, dispensing comforts, while the balls 
are whittling around ther hesds. In some 
armies, an ngeni Hvuk in eacli otrps, is supplied 
wiib a large wugou, ki'pt constantly full of such 
supplies MB are needed in the field, aud shares the 
hard^hips of tlio soldier's life. This plan is 
adopted in the Army of the Potomac, where, 
under the direction of Dr. I^wis li. Steiaer, Chief 



Inspeetor, and J. Warner Johnson, Field Snper 
intendent, it has been quite sucoessfVil. By oon 
stant association with the officers of a corps, tb« 
agent beoomes f^lly able to detect wants, and la 
enaUed to satisfy them with the greatest prompt* 
ness and certainty. 

The general purpose of the Special Rditf-wcK^ 
of the Commission is best set forth in the Report 
of the Bpedal Relief Agent at Washington, mtOm 
At one of the meetings of the Board : 

1st " To supply to the sick men of the newly- 
arrived regiments such medicines, fix>d, and ear« 
as it is impoesible for them to receive in the midst 
of the confusion, and with the unavoidable lack 
of fadlitlea from their own officers. The men t» 
be thus aided are those who are not so sick as to 
have a elatan upon a general hospital, and yet 
need immediate care to guard them against nri> 
01)8 sickness." 

2d. *' To famish suitable food, lodging, care and 
assistance, to men who are honoratuy discharged 
fh>m service, sent fhnn general hospitals, ot from 
their regiments, but who are often delaved a day 
or more, sometimes many days, before they obtain 
their papers and pay." 

3d. '*To communicate with distant regiments 
in behalf of discharged men whom certificates of 
disability, or descriptive lists, on which to draw 
their pay, prove to be defective ;— the invalid sol- 
diers, meantime, being cared for, and not exposed 
to the fifttiguo and risk of going in person to their 
regiments to have their papers corrected.** 

4th. ** To act as the unpaid agent or attorney 
of discharged soldiers who are too foeble, or too 
utterly disabled, to present their own claim at 
the paymaster's office." 

Sth. *^ To look into the oonditlon of dlsdiarged 
men who assume to be without means to pay th* 
expense of going to their homes, and to furniah 
the necessary means whwe we find the man la 
true, and the need real." 

6th. ''To secure, to disabled soldiers, railroad 
tickets at reduced rates, and. through an agent at 
the railroad station, see that these men are not 
robbed or imposed upon by sharpers." 

7th. ''To see that all men who are distdiarftod 
and paid off do at onoe leave the city for their 
homes; or, in cases where they have been indneed, 
by evil companions, to remain behind, to endeavor 
to reecue them, and see them started, with through 
tickets, to their own towns." 

Sth. **1\> make reasonably clean and comfort 
aUe, before they leave the city, such discharged 
men as are deficient in cleanlinefis and clotbea." 

9li>. **To be prepared to meet at onoe, with food 
or other akl, such immediate neoesalties as ariso 
when sick men arrive In the dty, in large num- 
bers, Arom battle-ilelds or distant hospitab*." 

lOth. ''To keep a watohful eye upon all sol- 
diers who are out of hospitals, yet not in servloti, 
and give information to the proper authorities, of 
such soldiers as seem endeavoring to avoid duty, 
or to desert frY>m the ranks." 

In the business of the Special Relief Depiut- 
ment, both Kast and Weft, are enlisted many 
energetic, whole-souled men and women, who 
take great pleasure in thus contributing to tbo 
needs of our men. There may be some persona 
who will cavil at this work, and who i<neeringi7 
ask, where are the officers of the Medical and 
other Departments, that such a w6rk aa this of 
Special Relief is required? 

To mnet such, Mr. Knapp thus speaks In tha 
Report already alluded to: *'The foot is sSmptj 



■«le a Ut^t and wiser prorfalon for the sick 
and wounded tb»n the world erer before saw;

WI, and a waiting at erwry corner, to giTe to a 
Wnthig soldier a cup of water, tuch aa frlenda at 
borne, in their aaxious lore, aak for. Yet thia 
work needs to be done, and, therefore, we, who 
are rim pi J the pmple's heart and bounty, do the 
work. But if the Medical Department were to 
attempt it, in all its minutis) of detail, their 
power for their own hundred-fold greater work 
would be weakened in a way that would find no 
instifleatlon." 

The Sanitary Gommisfdon has alao a Hospital 
Ihrectory, in which arrangements are made for 
"^PPlying information relative to all patients in 
*°* Army Hospitals. This information is fur- 
mahed gratnitoxisly. 

The autlstical material collected from all parU 
of iu work is aubmitted to proper dincuitsloh by 
•n acoompliahed Actuary, and the reiulu are 



whose use such result* are obtained. 

A large number of monographs, on speclsl sub- 
jects of interest to medical oAoera, have been 
prepared, so as to place, in the hands ot the 8ur> 
gcon in the field, compendious epitomes of the 
most modem Information, and these are gratul> 
tottsly distributed. 

The oriidnsl organiaatioa of the Commission 
owes much to the first Genersl Seeretsry, F. L. 
Olmsted, l£sq., who labored with great seal in Its 
serTioe. ^Its officers now are working with a 
quiet enthusiasm, which could not be obtained 
for money, or any other reward ; and erery em>

ranks, st the command of a great people, whoee

THE KATIOKAL ALMANAC. 



[1864. 



THB PUBLIO LIBRABIES OF THE TJVJTED STATES. 



UifTiL within A ftw yean, the public libraries 
of America were neither ao nomerous nor bo im- 
portant aa to render their statieticfl interesting. 
A young nation, wfaoee independent existence 
dates back lea than a century, and acting as the 
pioneer of dvilisatlon in so broad a territory, 
could not be expected speedily to rival the great 
repositories of learning which adorn so many 
of the ci4>itals of Europe. Where Ooremment 
patronage is wholly wanting, and not even 
the accessions of a copy-tax are ei^oyed by 
a single library, whatever has been done to- 
ward the foundation or increase of collections is 
dne to individual liberality or associated entei^ 
prise. 

When due allowance is made for all the ob- 
stacles, the growth and extent of our public 
collections wul compare favorably with those of 
any country. True, we have no one library which 
rivals or approaches that of the British Museum, 
with its 600,000 volumes, or even the Bodleian 
Library at Oxford, with its 800,000; but neither 
have our librariee any of the adventitious ad- 
vantages ei^oyod by those institutions, of re- 
ceiving copies of every thing published in the 
United Kingdom free of cost If our largest 
libraries must look with envy upon the 900,000 
Tolumos, besides 500,000 pamphlets, of the Impe- 
rial Library at Paris (now the largest collection 
In the world), that feeling may be tempered by 
the reflection that its splondid facilities for amass- 
ing books, in the centre of European civilizHtion, 
with four centuries of opportunity since the in- 
vention of printing, and the uncounted spoils of 
monkish and church libraries which it has ab- 
sorbed, ftimish abundant reason for its supe- 
riority. If we are reminded of the fitct that 
twelve librariee in Europe exceed 300,000 volumes 
each, while not one In tno United States has yet 
reached 150,000, we may be partially consoled by 
the reflection that the former are chiefly the 
grovrth of Oovemment patronage, built up by 
sovereigns fh>m the taxation of the people; 
while the latter are the free-will oflTerfngs of 
liberal-minded men to the cause of letters. 

Neither should it be forgotten that the more 
numerical extent of librariee is a most unsafe 
criterion of their real value. Some, at least, of 
the Continental libraries, which reckon their 
stores by the hundred thousand, are chiefly vast 
repositories of mediteval rubbish, with little or 
«w> attHiHnna fmm th#» RrtiAnce and literature of

In the quarter of a century which has elapsed 
since the above table was prepared, the reader 
cannot iUl to remark a progress which is com- 
mendable in itself, and a prognostic of still hii^ier 
results to come. Yet so litUe i^parent advance 
had been made in the importance of oollections, 
or the public information as to their extent, that 
we And an American Secretary of State, as late as 
the year 1860, replying to a circular of a com- 
mittee of Parliament designod to elidt informa- 
tion r«ipecting the statistics of libraries throng 
out the world, in the following terms : — 

** DBPABTMX2IT OF STATI, WASSDWTOir, 

''July 18. 1860. 
** I regret to be obliged to ininrm yon that, aoon 
after the receipt of Mr. Crampton*s note (aolidt- 
ing '* certain authentic information wiUi regard 
to public Ubrariea in the United Btatsa"), an 
attempt was made to obtain the partioidar In- 
formation desired, but without success; and tiutt, 
with every disposition to do so, the Dmartmeat 
flnds that it has no means of gratifying the wishes 
of Her Mi^eety's Government in this respect. 

(Signed) ** J. M, CUTTOisr." 

Yet the attempt to gather information aa to 
certain libraries on British ground appears to 
have been equally fruitless ; for we find the com- 
missionon statinic. in their voluminous report.

PUBLIC LIBRARIES OF TH£ UNITED STATES. 



1S64.]. 



In 1869 wM i88iiad**A Manual of Public Li- 
bvBilM, InaUtotiona. and Societies in the United 
Sttitaii. by William J. Blieee,"— a work originally 
daaifnted a« a continuation of Profeseor Jewett'f 
Bmithaonian Report, but expanded beyond the 
oacpected Hmite, and forming a Tolume of 687 
pam. The inibnmation it embodies, though reiy 
Talaable and fhll as regards many libraries, is 
▼«ry incomplete, as may be seen fh)m the feet 
that, while it gires the na^nes of 2902 libraries 
of ail sizes, it records the number of volumes in 
only 1388 of them, leaving the large proportion 
of 1M1 unreported. The failure to respond to 
dicolan of inquiry was the cause of this de- 
ficieiicy. Its statistics of the size of libmries, 
dating as tar bacl& as 1857, and in many instances 
stUl earlier, are now chiefly valuable for purposes 
of omnpsuiBon. 

In the table now published, the brevity so 
aveotlai in a work of this kind excludes all 
mention of libraries numbering less than 10,000 
volomea ; while it precludes any attempt to com- 
meauMrate the history, merits, or peculiarities of 
any of tlie collections. The thousands of school- 
Ubnriea, so widely diffused in this country that 
in. nuanr States one is placed in every school-dis- 
ttiet (uioso of New York alone numbering, in 
1802, 1,208,076 volumes), would require a volume 
for the mere record of their statistics. 

The church, parish, and Bunday-school libra- 
riea— which exist in stfll greater numbers, and 
the aggregate contents of which have been esti- 
natedat firom flvo to six milUons of volumes- 
can receive but a passing mention. 

The countless private libraries of the country — 
■wny of them of great extent and value— must 
also rannin unnoticed, save by the remark that, 
in Dr. Wynne's volume entitled, ** The Private Li- 
btwiea of New York,*' are found notices of over 
forty collections of 400O volumes and upwards; 
wUU tifte nnmber exceeding 10,000 volumes ap- 
proaches a doien. The same remark would hold 
good with regard to the private collections of 
Boston and its vicinity; while in all parts of the 
covntry noteworthy collections of special value 
attest ttie seal and the taste of scholars and

of information,— generally the (unpublished) een* 
BUS returns of 1800. 

An attempt has been made to correct the most 
mrevalent source of error in the enumeration of 
libraries, bv calling for a statement of pamphlets 
as distinguished from bound volumes. It is ob- 
viously unfiiir that libraries wliich are largely 
composed of tracts and pamphlets should recxon 
them against other librarise whoso stores consist 
wholly of bound books. 

In the column of information respecting cata- 
logues, a very commendable efficiency will be 
OMerved, in comparison with the great European 
libraries, only one of which (the Bodleian) has a 
printed catalogue at all approaching comploteness. 

The statistics regarding the nimiber of attend* 
ants employed in libraries, although collected, 
are not here given, as they fell to afford a fair 
basis of comparison as to the staff requisite to 
administer the affairs of a large library. For 
example, the Boston Public Library has a staiT 
of eighteen officers, while the Astor Library and 
the Library of Congress employ six officers each. 
The difference is accounted for in the fact that 
the former is a lending librarv, circulating pro- 
bably more books than any other public instito- 
tion in the world ; while the two latter are llbrsr 
ries of reference chieflv. The statistics as to the 
time of opening of the different libraries are 
omitted, for siindlar. reasons. The collection of 
statistics as to the circulation of the lending 
libraries, and the average number of readers at 
all libraries, was relinquished because of the unl< 
versal ill success which has attended attempts to 
collect specific information upon points which 
are usually murecorded, and therefore 8ub;je<;t to 
very wide conjecture. 

In stating the size of college or univsrsity libra- 
ries, only those actually possessed by the institu- 
tions are intended, the society-libraries of the 
students being lejft to stand by themselves. 
Thus, Harvard University is properly credited 
with the libraries of its Law. Medical, and Theo- 
logical departments, in addition to its miscel- 
laneous library of 104,000 volumes, — swelling its 
aggregate to 140,000 ; but no account is taken of 
the various society and club libraries at Cam- 
bridge, which would cmry it still higher. The 
foundation of the same libranr is given as 1704, 
instead of 1688, as often stated; because the first 
library, dating back to the origin of Uarvard 
University, was totally destroyed by fire in 1764, 
and the formation of the present collection dates 
firom that year. For a similar reason, the Library 
of Congress, which was burned by the British army 
in 1814, is reckoned as founded in 1815, when 
Mr. Jefferson's library was purchased to form 
the basis of the present collection. The latter 
library, it may be remarked, has been singularly 
unfortunate, having again lost 30,000 volumes by 
fire in 1851,— which partially accounts for its 
numerical disadvantage in the present table. 
But the United States will never possess a public 
library which can fitiy be called national, until 
Congress shall take a more liberal view of the 
value and importance of such a collection. 

Some of the libraries embraced in the table 
are not ** public libraries'* in the strict sense of 
the term, being designed for the special use of 
members of the institutions whose names they 
bear. Yet, 'vrith regard to all of them it may be 
said that, for purposes of reference or more ex- 
tended study, access to their stores is not difficult 
for any one to obtain. ^<^ ^ ^ ^T ^

Potomac and the various coast expeditions. The 
annual mortality from disease alone among those 
troops was S3v40 per thousand of mean strength. 

The second consists of the troops operating in 
the central basin of the continent, between the 
Appalachian and the Rocky Mountains, and in- 
dndee Western Virginia, the armies under Gena- 
rab Buell, Grant, and Pope, the department of 
Bfissouri, with the Boattered troops in Kansas, Na- 
braska. New Mexico, and the Northwest. The 
annual mortality from disease alone in this region 
was 82.19 per thousand. 

The third division consists of the troops on the 
Pacific slope, between the Rocky Mountains and 
the sea. It includes those serving in Northern 
and Southern California, Oregon, and Washington 
Territory. The annual mortality rate was 10.70 
per thousand. 

It will thus be seen that on the Pacific slope 
the mortality rate was three time^ lem than on 
the Atlantic coast, while that of the latter region 
was twice and a half less than that of the troops 
serving in the central region. 

The small amount of mortality on the Pacifle 
coast is worthy of attention. The rate is hardly 
greater than that attributed by British and New 
England statisticians to young men of similar ages 
in private life. This exemption is in part due, 
there can be no doubt, to the fact that on the Pa- 
cific coast our troops found themselves under con- 
ditions much more closely approximating those of 
peace than of war. But the rate is so much less 
than has ever been known in the whole United 
States Army In time of peace, that an idea of the 
superior healthftilnees of the Pacific coast Is at 
once suggested. The greater mortality of the cen- 
tral reckon, as compared with the Atlantic coast, 
would appear to hold a close relationship to the 
great prevalence of malarious disease in the- val- 
leys of the Blisslssippi and its tributaries which 
is Indicated by the Tables HI^ IV., and V., show- 
ing the monthly rates of camp fever, of intermit- 
tent fever, jmd of diarrhoea. 

The three great regions above contrasted differ 
not only in their annual mortality rate, but the 
relations of mortality to season are also c^uite 
different. ^

and II. The height of the several coliuuuB in each month is drawn to a scale, and corresponds to

General Pretalxkcs or Dmeass. 

The difference between the three regions aboro 
contrasted is not so conHpIcnous in the general 
slckncHS rates as in the mortality; yet the whole 
number taken sick in tho central region wcs 
greater than on the. Atlantic coast, ana in this, 
again, greater than on the Pacific. In the first, 
the number taken on sick report during tho year 
was 3S6S.14 per thousand of mean 8trenp:th, in 
the second, irr48.83, and in tho third, 2[:86.e0. It 
Mill thus be seen that In each of those regions a 
larfte proportion of tho troops must have beeiu. 
taken ttick several times during the year. 

Table II. exhibits the monthly ratio of " taken 



sick" for each of the three regions. It doe« not 
indicate the "constant fickncai rate," bnt the 
total number taken on sick report onring the 
month. Tho monthly fluctuations exhilited by 
this table are, of course, much less instmctK* 
than those of individual diseases; they rcrrp, 
however, to indicate a gradual improvement in 
the sanitary condition of the army during the mar. 
It would bo exceedingly IntereRting were it 
possible to present a table representing the "co»- 
Ktant sickness rates** for the same period ; tut tits 
imperfect data in the Surgeon-General*B OfBce 
for the first year of tho war do not afford the 
means for computing such a table in a reliable 
manner.

the coaunencemeut of th« war, the vast minority 
of the camp feren of the army were of a mixed 
character, exhibiting undoobted enteric pheno- 
mena, rarioasly oomWned with the periodicity 
and other peculiaritlea of malarial disease, and 
still farther modified by the tendency to inci- 
pient scurvy which is the ordinary concomitmt 
of camp diet. To indicate this mixed nature, the 
term ** typho^nalarial fevor,*' which I had the honor 
to sugsest to the Department in J une, 186^ appears 
appropriate, and at the present time is coming 
into Tery general use. 

A correct nndcrsUnding of the nature of these 
ferers is of the utmost importance, as they play 
a conqiicuons part in the mortality of our armies. 
During the year under consideration, 44.6 per 
oent. of all the deaths from disease were ^due te 
eamp foTers. 

An examination of Table m. shows that the 
frequency and mortality of camp fcTer differ 
conalderably in the three great regions. On the 
Atlantic border the annual ratio of cases was 
238.90 per thousand of mean strength, and tho 
' ratio or deaths to cases was 71.9 per thoii>Nind, or 
one death to erery 184) cases. In the central ro- 

TABLB m.

alon the annual ratio of cases was SIDJM per 
thousand, and the ratio of deaths 101.8 per tboo- 
sand cases, or one in 9.8. On the Pacific coast the 
annnal ratio of cases was only OOJN» per ttraii- 
sand, and the ratio of deaths to cases 4&12, or oos 
in 22.1. The severity of cantp lievers in these 
several regions in thuit shown to dilfer as coosi- 
dertibly as their frequency. 

An inspection of thu tablu.or of the accompanying 
diugrum, at once exhibits the autumnal character 
of the disease. On the Atlantic coast the monthly 
number of attacks steadily increased until NoveM> 
ber, 1861, then as steadily diminished until March, 
Ibtti; after which they once more increased in fre- 
quency. In the central region the maximum was 
attained in September, 1861, followed by a gradaal 
diminution till March, and a subsequent Increaas^ 
as on the Atlantic coasL On the Pacific coast, al- 
though there is loss regularity in the fluctoatea, it 
willbe observed that October was the maxImuM 
month. The most superficial observer cannot frtll 
to be struck witn the.simihuity between these three 
waves and those of the intermittent fevers, of whose 
malarial nature there is.no doubt, and which ars 
illustrated in the next Uble and diagram.

Intermittent fever, although a very frequent 
affection, has not been the cause of any great 
mortality. On the Atlantic border the annual 
ratio of cases was 195.94 per thousand of mean 
strengtii, the rate of deaths to cas(>« 6.0 per thou* 
sand, or one to 165.9. In the central r^on the 



annual ratio was 375.M, the deaths 5.9 per t

the annnal ratio was 151.68 per thousand of fl

Dionrhoea and dysentery caused about one- 
fourth of all the sickness reported. On the At- 
lantic border more than hali the army suffered, 
and In the central region the number of cases 
almost equalled the mean strength. Although 
not near^ so fatal as camp fever, aflections uf 
this class were an important cause of thu niortul- 
ity of our army. In the chronic cases, though 
most generally called diarrhoea, and not dysentery, 
the colon was the seat of the chief lesion. The 
most characteristic pott^mortem appearance was 
a tliickened, softened condition of the mucous 
membrane, with pigment deposit and enlargement

CSatarrfaal alTections of every class were exceed- 
ingly common, attacking nearly one-half the 
forces in the field. The relative frequency in 
the three regions of the country appears to have 
been about the same:— on the Atlantic border 
456.47 per thousand of mean strength. In the 
central region 427.20 per diousand, and on the 
Pacific slope 407 .61. In all, the frequency of these 
affections increased greatly during the winter 
and diminished during the warmer months, the 
maximum month being January for the Atlantic 
and central, and February for the Pacific region. 
A large proportion of the severer catarrhal cases 
occurred as sequelsa to camp measles. The vast 
minority of the simple catarrhal cases terminated 
In recovery, the deadis being one to every 1127.8 



case* on the Atlantic coast, one to every £604) 
cases in the central region, and no deaths occur- 
ring ftom this cause in the Pacific reaion. A 
certain number of these catarrhal cases, no we ver, 
terminated in pneumonia, and thus a part, at 
least, of the mortulity of catarrhal afifrctions is 
reported under that head. The annual rates of 
t-neumonia for the three re^ons were as lollowt: 
—On the Atlantic const, 26^ cases per thousand 
of mean strength, the deaths b<>ing Vil,l per 
thousand cases, or one death to everv 't .6 casea; in 
the central region the cases were 64J2 per tho«- 
^nnd of mean strength, the deaths *IS9^ per

RnUBILITT 07 THB rOKMOIirO RATIOS. 



In conclusion, a fow remarks may be made upon 
the reliability of tlie BtntlHticji ft-om which tiie fore- 
going ratios are deduced. It id fraiilily admitted 
that the data in the Surgeun-Generars Office, 
from wliich the statintlcs of the first year of the 
war were compiled, are exceedingly incomplete. 
Mo systematic effort appears to have been made 
to secure reports of siclc and wounded prior to 
June, 1862, when already fourteen mouths of the 
war had elapsed. The existing reports, referring to 
the three-montlis men, are too few to enable the 
statistician to deduce any reliable r.ttio of sick- 
liets and mortality for that force ; and for a lon^ 
time after the three-years vuluittoers were mus- 
tered into the service, many of their surgeons 
persistently neglected to furnish the reports 
required by regulations. In fact, up to tli » 
cloie of the first year of the war tlie sick reports 
received at the Surgcon-Qenemrs Office never 
represented, for any one month, more than two- 
thinls of tlie army actually in the field. In 
careAilly attempting to compile the statistics of 
the several armies for the first year of the war. 
It has not been possible, therefore, to 8i*cnre a per- 
fect record for any one of them; the figures never 
represent the whole force, but always merely a 
certain number of the component regiments: 
neTertheless, so far as they go, it is believed tliat 

Tabular SnxriMEXt of D£ath8, btDubasi aics in Battlb, or Ceataix MioaxoAN ReoDiE^rTS » 1861-41. 



[1864. 

these statistlct are m aocorato and roliaUe m 
any medical statUitios heretofore published; and, 
althougli it has not been possible to represent 
the whole anuy by tluMu, they correspond to so 
viist a host that they possess high value in them- 
selves, and may fai ly be assumed to aptiroximat* 
in the closest manner the results which would 
have been attained had the repents been ooni- 
plete. 

In fact, the number of regiments reporting is 
so great that the statistics IVom wlilch these ratios 
have been prepared may safely be said to be the 
largest medico-military statistics yet ever com- 
piled. 

Great efforts have been made dnring the fiscal 
yenr ending June £0, 1863, to secnre con^leto- 
nees in tlie medical statistics; and these efforts, 
although not crowned with perfect success, liave 
had the effect of rendering the reports for that 
year companitlvely complete; and the work of 
compiling them is progressing as rapidly as is 
possible with the clerical force employed. 

It is believed that, ai tlie attention of the 
medical officers In service is now fully directed to 
the effort being made to cohipile these stHtistics. 
their hearty co-operation may be relied upon, ana 
that the figures for the present year may be 
hoped to be as nearly complete as can be ex- 
pected fh>m any groat amly in time of war.

KtttatiTes. Die Oongrew innat meet at leMt uuce 
ioerwyyear, which meeting mudt be on the flnt 
Holiday in December, unle^ they by Uw appoint 
atfftrentday. 

Yhe Senate of the United State* ia composed of 
tv»8aMtora from each State, cho«en by tlie liOgis- 
Utare thereof for elx yoara. At their amt meet- 
ins «Q<i^ the Cou«titatlon, the Seuatura were 
mteii into three cl^ajca, to that the terms of 
ooMUrd of the Senators might expire every 
tecowl year. By thid means one-third of the Se- 
nrte U renewed biennially. No person can be a 
Seastor who is nnder thirty yean of age, nor 
onksi he has been nine years a citixeu of the 
Uiitcd aiatca, and when elected an inhabitant 
of the State for which he is chown. When 
TSGiiideihi4>pei] |n any State, temporary appoint- 
nmHn aiay be made (if the Legislatnro l>e not in 
m4tm) by the BxecntlTc of the Sute, until tlie 
sett Bieettng of the Legislatnre. The Vice-Pre- 
Mrat or the United States U President of the 
5«ate, bat has no rote unletM they bo eqnally 
dhrided The Senate in required to choosi^ also a 
pfwideot proteaupon, who presides in the absence 
of tliP Vice-Prcrident or when the hitter shall 
eisrciw the office of Preeident. 

«• Uonse uf Representatives is composed of 
■«nl*ri cbuaen every siieond year by the people 
01 the levenU States. No person can be a Kepre- 
wrtstive ^iho is under twenty-ftve years of age, 
**'"»I<*» he has been seven years a citizen of 
weCnittdStotea. and, when elected, an lnhabI^ 
«« ojtlie State for which ho is chosen. Repre- 
■Jttttvw are apportioned among the several 
Ww« sctording to their respective numbers, 
™h namliers are ascertained by an actnal enu- 
JJWion, or census, of all Ui© inhabitants, made 
JJJWtt every term of ten years. When by this 
■"■n* the whole nnmber of ft*oc persons is ascei^ 
uiow^excluding Indians not t»x«-d, there is added 
]*|*»eh nnmber three-flftbs of all other persons, 
fr *•»« •Wregate thus found is the represent- 
3» population. By the law of 23d of May, 1F50, 
!y I'P.feh the exIsHnsr apportionment of Re- 
g2«»arfli wss orhdnally made, it was enacted 
S-utJISI?^ of RepreseutMtivea in Congress 
T?"f^ «3. that the rcpreeontatlve popuhition 
!jjTOj by the eonsos of that year and there- 
"WttottUbodiTided by Bald number 233, and 



that the quotient so found should be the ratio of 
representation for the several States. The ratio 
tlius ascertained under the census of 1860 was 



I'i4,l83; and upon this basis the 233 Ropi 
ativeit were apportioned aqnong the several States, 
one Repreeeiitative for every district containing 
that number of persons; giving to each State at 
least one Representative. Subsequently, by the act 
of March 4, 1802, the number of Representatlvei 
Irom and after March 3,1863, was increased fh)m 
233 to 241 by allowing oner additional Represent- 
ative to each of the foTlo«-ing States, viz. : Illinois, . 
Iowa, Kentucky, Biiunesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, 
Rhode Island, and Vermont. 

Besides Senators and Representatives, there is 
a class of members of Congress, called Delegates, 
who sit in the House and represent the organized 
Territories of the United States. These iMeraites 
may present subjects for legislation and address 
the IlouBo, but, not representing States, they have 
no votes. In the present Congress there are nine, 
—one each fh>m the Territories of Washington, 
New Mexico, Utah, Nebraska, Colorado, Nevada, 
Dakota, Arixona, and Idaho. 

Under the law of August 16, 18(6, the oompeI^ 
satlon of a Senator, Representative, or Delegate 
in Congress is 16000 for each Congress, at the rate 
of $3000 per annum, and mileage at the rate of 
$8 for evur>' twenty miles of estimated distance 
by the most usual road (h)m his place of residence 
to the sent of Congress, at the commencement and 
at the end of every session; but this mileage is 
allowed for two searions only in each Con^tm. 
Tlie compensation of the Speaker of the House la 
double that of a Representative, and the President 
pro tenport of the Senate, when there is no vlc^ 
President, is entitled to the compensation allowed 
by law to the Vice-President, $8000 per annum. 

The times, places, and manner of holding elec- 
tions for Senators and Represontativw are pre- 
scribed in each State by tho l^^^S^,^^^^

that the members who voted for Mr. Colfax are 
cordial and uniform supporters of Mr. Lincoln's 
administration. lience they are classed as Ad- 
ministration members; their names, including 
that of Mr. Colfax, who did not rote, are printed 
in Iloman letters. Those who voted for other per- 
sons tlian Mr. Colfax, it is assumed, are opposed to 
Mr. Lincoln*s administration. Hence they are

classed as Anti-Administration ; their names are 
printed in italic characters. The names of tbuos 
who did not vote are printed in hUAU. capitau 
(excepting those of Mr. Colfax and Mr. 8telUhM); 
while it may be an error to clsss them with lb* 
opponents of the administration, they are MfU 
placed in that column as being perhaps leM 
thorough and uniform supporters than thoaa in

THE NATIONAL ALHAHAO. 



PMl 



HTBBIAL BEYEVHB OB EXOIBBi AID DIBEOT TAX LAW& 



Pkiok to the year 1861, the present generation 
of Americana were unaccustomed to any other 
modes of raising moneys ibr the support of tho 
Ooremment of we United StatoSf than by duties 
on foreign goods imported, and by the sale of the 
public lands. Other means, howerer, had been 
wed during the earlier periods of our national 
career. Under the power granted in aection 8 of 
Article L of the Oonstitution, Compieas had many 
times exercised the power **to lay and collect 
taxes, duties, imposts, and extises, to pay the 
debts and/oroTlde for the common defence and 

Eineral welfare of the United States," by impoe- 
g direct taxes and internal or excise duties 
■imilar to those in operation at this time. On 
these 8nlQ()ect8 no less than s^enty-flre acts were 
paased, extending fhmi 8d of March, 1791, to 23d 
of December, 1817, when exdse or internal dntiee 
were abolished. The whole amount realised to 
ttM Treasury by the operation of thoae laws waa 
184,996,340. The highest amount collected in any 
one year was in 1810, when it reached 19,378,844. 
Great difficulty attended the collections, and some 
ot the taxes and duties did not reach the Treasury 
until 1880. The people of the United States were 
eomparatiTdy poor in those da^ra. It may aerre 
to indicate our advance in wealui and in tax-pay- 
lag power to state in this place that there waa 
ooUected during about tiz numtht of active opera- 
tions of the present laws, an amount exceeding 
by flfty per cent, the agp*M^ate ooUectionB fVom 
Mmilar sources during our whole previous history. 
The receipts Arom internal revenue in the year 
1808, to September 30, were $53,025,678 40. 

The following will serve to show the relative 
productiveness of the several sources of revenue 
prior to the passage of the laws of 1801-2-8.

THE NATIONAL ALMANAC. 



[1884. 



THE UNITED STATES. 



Thb azistence of the Unite<] StatM of America 
as a separate and independent nation usually 
dates from July 4, 1776, wheu the itocond Conti- 
nental Congress passed the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence, dissolving all connection with Great 
Britain. The coUmies, however, were virtually 
under their omti government from the time of the 
meeting of the second Continental Congress, May 
10, 1775, which body continued ito sittings during 
the greater part of the Revolutionary War, and 
had the general direction of aflairs. The powers 
<^ this Congress were not defluod,— there was no 
•ettled form of government ; but, their authority 
being of a revolutionary or provisional character, 
they exercised such as the necessities of the times 
required. The Rbtolutionakt Ootsbkhsitt con- 
tinned until the Confederation was organised, the 
articles for which were adopted by the Congress 
as early as November 15, 1777, but were not Anally 
ratifled by aU the Colonies until March 1, 1781. 
On the following day (March 2, 1781) Congress 
assembled under the Confederation. The Con- 
PiDnun GovKRNHBiTT was intended to be per- 
petual; but it was soon found to be so defective, 



Inefllcient, and even powerless, that a oooTentioa 
of delegates was called to meet at Philaddphia od 
the Uth of May, 1787, ^for the sole and express 
purpose of revising the Articles of Ooofederatiuo, 
and reporting such alterations and proTWons 
tboreln as shall render the Federal ConatitntioD 
adequate to the exigencies of the Qovemment 
and the preservation of the Union." The Coo- 
sTiTunoRAL Uov£a:fXE:«T was the result of tha 
deliberations of this convention ; for tboy adopted, 
on tlie 17th ot September, 1787, that great and 
wise charter known. as the Constitution of tb« 
United States. Eleven of the States having rati- 
fied this Constitution, Congress, on the 17 th of 
September, 1788, reaulved that it should go Into 
operation on Wednesday, the 4th day of Mardi, 
1789. 

The powers granted by this Constitution are 
distributed among three separate ami distinct 
bodies,— the legislative powers being vested in a 
Congress ; the executive power, iu the Preslclent I 
nud the Judicial power, in one Supreme Court, 
and such inferior courts as Congress may from 
time to time ordain and establish. 



BXBCTJTIVS OOVEBmCENT. 

The nineteenth Presidential term of four years since the establishment of the Ooremment of tka 
United States, under the ConsUtution, began on the 4th day of March, 1861, and it will expire on the

Birces had been committed by Congress to the War Department by an act approred Angnst 7, 1788. 
It was not until April 80, 1798, that a separate Department was created for the purpose, when the aot 
of that date prorided Ibr **an execntive department nnder the denomination of the Department of 
tbe NaTj, the chief oflBcer of which shall be called the Secretary of the Nary." [For OTganization of 
Havy Department and distribution of duties among the Bureaus, see National Almanac, 1868.1 

Tbe Congreaslonal legislation of 1802-63 did not materially change the laws goTemlng the Navy.

NOTB.— The account for the flica] year 1860-61 it corrected by taking the actoal exports and 1b- 
ports of like qoarters of the previous fiscal year as a minimum estimate for the last two qtutien 
of the fiscal year 1860-61, of transactious which continued under the Am(»1can flag, hut which' vers 
not reported to the Treasury Department in regular quivterly returns. The quantities thus added 
are $161,611,905 of domestic exports, $500,000 of foreign exports, and $16,425,382 of imports. 

Prior to 1821 the Treasury reports did not give a complete return of imports. To that period their 
Talue, and also the proportion of exports designated respectively as domestic and foreiipi, has bstB 
estimated flrom sources believed to bo authentic. The total of exports is official fh>m the first. Fran 
1821 to 1863, inclusive, all values have been taken fix)m official returns, with the exception abors 
noted for omitted quarters of 1861 at certain Southern ports. L. £. CHITTENDEN, ''—'-^—

What is now called the Post-Offlce Dopartment 
was established in 1780 as the " Post-Offlce," and 
subsequently as the ** Oeneral Post-Offlce," under 
the power given to Congress by the Constitution 
**to establish post-offices and post-roadB." The 
first act of Congress briefly declares that ** there 
shall be ^pointed a Postmaster-General," and 
that his powers and salacy and the compensation 
to the assistant or clerk and deputies, and the 
regulations of the office, shall be the same as thoy 
were under the Congress of the Confederation. 
This refers the origin of our Post-office system 
to the old Confederation and beyond. There Is, 
however, but little publtcly known of its early 
history, although the Gouertu Office is In possession 
of some very interesting aud valuable materials on 
the subject. The flrst recorded notice of any 
attempt in the colonies to convey letters by post, 
relates to the petition of certain Boston merchants 
to Uie Court, and the subsequent appointment of 
John Hay ward, in 1077, " to take in aud convey 
letters according to their direction." This ap- 
pears to have been the first postal arrangement in 
America. By gradual but untraceable growth, local 
arrangements like the above became general ; but 
tliere was nothing like system until 1710, when the 
British Parliament authorized the Postmastcr- 
Qenoral " to keep one chief letter office in New 
York, and other chief letter offices in each of 
Her Majesty's provinces or colonies in America." 
Deputy Postmasters-General for North America 
were subsequently from time to tioic appointed 
by .the British Postmaster-General. Colonel Spotts- 
wood was one of those in 1737, as in that year 
he appointed Boqjamin Franklin Postmaster of 
Philadelphia. 

Franklin was subsequently employed as comp- 
troller of several post-oflfces, and, in 1753, was 
made Postmaster-General Jointly with William 
Hunter. Down to that time the American office 
had never paid ai«y thing to that of England. 



Franklin and Hunter were promised £600 a year 
between them if they could make that amount out 
of thd profits of the office; and this Franklin's 
fertility of resources and inltiatiTe mind enabled 
them, after some time, to do. The improTcments 
in the malls which he introduced were at fint ao 
expensive that the office sunk £000 in fonr yean. 
But after that it began to pay both him and the 
Crown a handsome revenue. In 1774, when ha 
was dismissed, it was yielding a clear rerenue to 
the British Troasurv of £30W) per annum, Jnst 
three times as much as the yield ftt>m the Post- 
Office of Ireland at the same time. Speaking of 
tlds progress of the office under his management 
and of his dismissal, Franklin quaintly observe, 
"Since that imprudent transaction they [the 
British Ministi^J have received (hom it— not ooa 
fiu-thing." 

On the 26th of July, 1775, the Continental Con- 
gress ordained that a PostmasterOeneral be ap- 
pointed for the United Colonics. Under this ordi- 
nance,Beiviamin Franklin was unanimonsiT chosen 
PoHtniaster-Oencral. He was allowed $1000 per 
annum for himself, and $340 for a secretary and 
comptroller. The Articles of Confederation of 1788 
gave to Congress *' the sole and exclusive right 
and power of establishing and regulating post- 
offices from one State to anofli^r, throughoot all 
the United States, and oxncting such postage on 
the papers passing tlirough the same as may bo 
requisite to defray the expenses of an offloe." 
Very little progress was made under the Con- 
federation. It was the " Post-Office" system thus 
imperfectly traced from Its first perceptible be- 
ginnings that was continued by tno act of Sep- 
tember 22, 1780, above noted. Under that act wa 
have the earliest reliable statistics of its opera- 
tions, commencing in 1790. Its subsequent pro- 
gross and present condition are exhibited in the 
statistical tablM hereto appended.

iMTXaif ATIOKAL POOTAL COSFBaiMGS.— In Jolj. 

1868, at the invitation of the PoatOffico D^vi* 
ment of the United States, a postal ooBCnsBOS 
was held at Puis to consider the subject of gwtar 
uniibrmity of administration in international pos- 
tal ailairs. The conference was attended by deto- 
gates representing the Post-OflAce DeparCmcBt* 
of ftanoe, Great Britain, Austria, Belgfaun, Ooata 
Rica, Denmark, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands 
Portugal, Prussia, Switzerhuid, the Sandwich 
IshindB, the Hanseatic League, and the United 
States; the last named being represented by tbs 
Hon. John A Kasson, who fist made the 8ugga»> 
tion or such an interchange of views. The result 
of their ddiberations was tho adoption of a coda 
of thirty-one rules, to be recommended to ^tlMir 
several governments as the bases of action in 
making postal treaties or conventions. The sgra> 
tern suggested in these thirty-one rules has al- 
ready been adopted by the governments of Bel- 
gium, Italy, and the United States. About one* 
half of the rules affect matters of administration 
exclusively; those which have a popular Interest 
are noticed in the subjoined summary, and, tf 
generally adopted, they will greatly Ikcilitata in- 
ternational postal intercourse, by reducing the 
present cumbrous syst^ of complex rates and 
weights, and conflicting rules and regulations, to 
something like simplicity and uniformity. &«> 
tion 1 divides all matter, to be carried by inter- 
national mails, into six classes,— ordinary lettcn^ 
registered letters (two classes! corrected procrf* 
sheets, Ac, samples of merchandise, Jbc, and 
printed matter. Section 2 recommendls thsct pre- 
payment should be optional, but that unpaid 
letters should pay additional postage. Se co o a g 
4, 5, and 6 recommend the prepayment of rsgia- 
tered letters and nrinted matter, and tiaat matter 
fhlly prepaid shall be ddittrtd wUhaut an^ ad- 
ditional charge tohatevtr. Sections 7, 8, 9, 10, U 
recommend the adoption of the French nutrical 
decimal svstem of weights in all international 
postal afTairs, and that the standard weight for a 
single-rate letter shall be 15 grammes (about | 
ox.*X And for a single rate for the other classes 
(except printed matter) 40 grammes (a litUe lees 
than li oz.); leaving the standard fbr inlnted 
matter for fhtnre adjustment. Sections 13, 14, 1ft 
recommend an additional charge upon reglatered 
letters, and tho payment of indemnity in case of 
the loss or abstraction of such letters or of tfaelr 
contents. Sections 27 and 80 suggest the adoption 
of international money-order arrangemeats, and 
that provision be made for a class of letters, de- 
nominated "urgent," to be delivered byexiness 
messengers. The other sections refer oxcluivdy 
to details of administration. If the code of rules 
thus described shall be adopted, it will not only 



mails to the transmission of printed and other 
matter in many cases where such matter Is now 
excluded.

cdstenee vider the act aboTe epedfied. The 
working ftNnoe of tiM olllce it now engaged upon 
the TolnmiiioDa retome of the Geneui of 1860, for 
wUoh an appropriation of $1,000,000 wai made on 
flfee a6th of June in that year. It ia under the

The taking of the cenaua in the United States 
le a Batter of more consequence than in most 
other countries; for here it is of high political 
as well aa economical importance. Bepresenta- 
tion and taction in this country are apportioned 
according to numbers. The Constitution provides, 
in Seetion 2 of Article L, that *• Representatives 
and direct taxes shall be apportioned among the 
several States which may be included in this 
Union according to their respeotive numbers;" 
and the same section direcUthat "the actual 
enumeration shall be made within three years 
after the lint meeting of the Congress of the 
United States, and within every subsequent term 
of ten years.** Under these povisionB, and the 
laws passed in pursuance of them, the Census of 
the United States has been taken eight times 
from 1700 to 1860. As years rolled on, and our 
nopnlatioD and populated territory expanded 
by rapid growth, the work of enumeration in- 
creased in magnitode and importance, and the 
rssnlto have been of greater value, aside ftook 
thsir poUtieal nstowltj^ Perhaps no better idea 
of the augmented labor necessarily bestowed 
upon the work, and of the increased value of the 
retams, can be given than by presenting a sum- 
■Mry of the cost of the census for each of the 



Navy Invalids, $34,840; Navy Pension Fund, 
$180; widows, mothers, children, and sisters, 
$107,886;ptivateer pensioners, $fl22;total, $148,528.

several decennial periods. The Census of 1790 
cost $44,877.28: that of MOO. $66^09.04; that of 
1810, $178,144i7; that of 1820, ^^525.09; that 
of 1830, $878,545^8 ; that of 1840, $^^70.95 ; that 
of 1850, $1,818,027^ exclusive of the expense of 
IMrinting and bindinf , and scnne other expenses 
subeeouent to the 80th of September, 1863. For 
the Hghth Census (1860) an i^j^propriation of 
$1,000,000 haa been made, as already mentioned. 
Bach of the earlier censuses was provided for by 
a special act, aa the neoessitv aroae; but in 1850 
Congress passed a general law on the sulilect, 
maldng provision for the Seventh, or any subse- 
quent, Census, if no other law should be passed 
by the 1st dav of January of the year when, by 
the Constitution, an enumeration is to be made. 
This law is specific and comprehensive in ita 
directions, f^inUsliing a complete chart to the 
marshals, to the Secretary of the Interior, to 
whom the returns are required to be made, and 
to the Superintendent, who is authorised by the 
same law to be appointed for the immediate 
Buperviaion of the work. It also directa how the 
ratio of representation shall be ascertained, and 
the forms to be pursued in apportionimr the Con* 
gresslonal Representatives among the States. 

Since the issue of the National Almanac for 
1863, no farther publication of the statistics of 
1860 has been made, and the only matter we can 
now add to the copious tables republished in that 
volume is contained in the following interesting 
statementa of the nativities of the population of 
the United States, for which we are indebted to 
the courtesy of the Superintondeat, who ftimi«hed 
them in advance of his report
