............ 2,800 Ter a period of about nine years after the present Government of the United States was organized, there was no Navy Department. The executive duties growing out of the management of the narai forces had been committed by Congress to the War Department by an act approved August 7, 1789. It was not until April 30, 1798, that a separate Department was created for the purpose, when the act of that date provided for “an executive department under the denomination of the Department of the Nary, the chief officer of which shall be called the Secretary of the Navy." (For organization of Nary Department and distribution of duties among the Bureaus, see National Almanac, 1863.]

The Congressional legislation of 1862-63 did not materially change the laws governing the Navy. Beyond the authority given to the President to appoint a commissioner to codify the naval laws, and the annnal appropriation bills, there is scarcely any thing worthy of note. Among the principal appropriations are the following: For pay of commission, warrant, and petty officers and seamen, including the engineer corps of the navy....

$14,734,332 70 For the construction and repair of vessels of the navy....

9,298,000 00 For the purchase and building of additional steamers, repairs of the same, charter of

Tessels, extra labor and materials, and repairs of vessels on foreign stations .............. 15,000,000 00 Per two armor-plated sea-steamers of the first class.........

3,000,000 00 For the purchase of hemp and other materials for the navy...

320,000 00 For fuel for the navy, and for the transportation and expenses thereof....

2,690,000 00 For the equipment of vessels in the navy, viz. :For the purchase of varions articles of equipment, canvas, leather, cables, and anchors,

and furniture and stores in the masters', boatswains', and sailmakers' departments... 2,000,000 00 For provisions for commission, warrant, and petty officers, and seamen, including engineers and marines attached to vessels for sea-service......

5,417,745 00 For the construction and repair of machinery for vessels in commission

6,775,000 00 For surgeons' necessaries and appliances for the sick and hurt of the navy, including the engineer and marine corps......

157,500 00 For cannon of all descriptions, field and boat howitzers, gun-carriages, shot, shell, and

equipment of all kinds, powder, purchase of nitre, small arms, ordnance labor at navy-yards, freight, transportation, books, inspecting-instruments, watchmen, assistants, for fabrication and inspection of guns, and contingent expenses of ordnance and Ordnance Bureau .....
