Toe colored(troops have been allowed
qo bounty and under the construction
given by the Department they MI only, by
the existing isw, receive the pay of ten
dollars per month, while other soldiers are
being paid thirteen dollars per month,
with clothing and daily rations. There
seems to be inequality, and iskultice in
this distinction, and an amendment author
ising the same pay and bounty as white
troops rroeise is recommended. As sol
diers of the Union, fighting under its ban
ner, exposing their lives to uphold the gov

refit a solemn unit upon the government.
Their necessities haie to some extent been
supplied by the orders of this department;
but a general and permanent system for
their protection end support should be
speedily adopted by Congress. Even if
they are to be regarded in some degree as
a burthen upqn the government, they are a
greater loss to the enemy. Every woman

Their labor in the cotton field le a source of

enlistmtnt in the regular service be axed at
three years, in accordance with the act of
July 29,1861, whiehezpired by limits lemon
the let of January, 1863. Second, that the
law regulating the payment of chaplains be
amended so as to allow half pay and es
dons during absence on leave, occasioned
by other cause than wortieds or sickness,
and tall pay without rations, when absent
for those causes.

From the report of the Chief Engineers,
It appears that the grants made by Con
gress for fortifications. at the last station,
amounted to $5,2.30000 for permanent
works, Ind $700,000 for temporary works.
These liberal provisions allowed very ma
tuba progress being made upon important
fortifications now under construction, and
of essential modifications being effected in
old works and existing batteries to obtain
largely luereased efficiency by preparing
them to receive ordnance of greatly in
creased calibre, and to store great bulks of
ammunition, with additional safety there
for. These important objects have been
very generally realised. Difficulties exist
lug lest year In the procurement and trans
portation of materials, and in obtaining
the requisite amount of skilled and ordi
nary labor, have increased; but these Milt .
amities have beet surmounted to such a
degree that the general result is very favor
able, and oar seaboard and border fortifi
cations are now in condition to afford a
formidable defence decidedly altos ger than
last year.
AgeT POIBT MILITARY ACADEMY,
The report of the Annual Board of Via'
tore to the Military Academy is submitted
There being no representation from the
rebel States in the academy since the war
commenced, there existed acoommodation
for a considerable number of cadets beyond
those furnished from the loyal States. Timers ,
seemed to be no good reason 'why the ad
vantages of the academy should not be em
ployed to their fattest capacity, and accord
ingly the vacancies were filled up by ap
pointments from the loyal States, generals
commanding armies being invited to furnish
names of deserving young men, and in this
way the number of cadets allowed by law
have been admitted to the advantages of a
military education in the academy at West
Point. A general statement, showing the
condition in life of the cadets for a num.
bes of years past, and a list of the pre
sent officers and cadets of the academy, ac
company the report of the Chief Engineer.

The operations connected with the survey
of the Northern and Northwestern lakes
have been actively continued, and duriog
the last season have consisted in the our
ye; of Portage entry on Lake Superior,
-anti in resuming the survey cf Green Bay
sad its entrance from Like Michigan; also
in periodical examinations of the channele
of the S.. Clair Fiats and of Lake George,
on Si. Mary's river. Observations for
the determination of geographical post
Clone, of the fluctuations and eleen
Lions of the surface of lakes, of meter,
logical phenomena, ore embraced in the
operations of the survey. The number of
lake charts dtstributed to navigators up to
October 1, 1803, exceeds twenty-lour thou
sand, of whioh four thousand were distrib
uted during the past year.
An experienced officer hos been detailed
to examine and report what temporary
works are required to guard the lake 'them,
from rebel piratical raids. The depart
ment charged with the dishuiserneld at
fuels for surveys for military defences boa,
in addition to its current duties, prepared
for military purposes an aggregate of eight
thousand eight hundred and forty-one mare,
of which six thousand nine hundred and
twenty seven were engraved and litho

The clothing end equipment of troops,
their shelter and transportation, the par
ohase of horses, wagons and mules, the
supply of forage, the conetzucuon, repair
and working of military reeds, cud the
supply of boats for transportation by water,
constitute the importantdmies of the Quar
termaster General's Department. Toe de
tails of three operations, toter as is proper
for public information, are oontaieed in the
Acting Quieten:raster Oeneral's report, and
need not hers be recapitulated.
The adequate supply of mules end horse,
and tittle eubstatenee are among the most
ardnoos.duties of the service. To system
atixe.this branch with adequate eupervie-
lottaind proper toonomy, so tar an practice
hie, a cavalry bateau traweetablished a tea
months ago and is now its operation at

means much improvemeut may be mane
with proper - diligence end fidelity on the

bas for some time been making a careful

beef and flour, Las, in great part,
been procured by adeetaising for bids,
and selecting the lowest fur suitable
articles in Beaton, NUw York, Phi's
, delptilia Baltimore, Cincinnati, Louisville
and St. Louie. Flour has, when possible,
been procured in the same manner, at
points nearer to our armies. Fresh beet
has been obtained In general by contract,
sometime/on the hoof and at other times
from the block. Oa the coasts of the Ca
relines and the gulf, and for a large por
tion of the year at New Orleans, beef is
forwarded on the hoof from New York. It
is believed that at every point the troops
have been supplied with abundance of
good .wholesome food, and that if, in the
Movement of the armies, temporary want
has been felt, it has not been due to any
ogees of which the officers of the depart
merit had control. In addiuon to the
troops, subsistence has been furnished to
all pet:entre, whether political or war, to
large 'combos of contraband., and to out.

ing the total number of miles of land and
submarine military telegraph lines in
operation during the year five thonsand
three hundred and twenty-six—being a
length of line sufficient to girdle more than
one fifth of the circumference of the globe.
By close estimate it appears that at least
1,200,000 telegrams have been tient and re

daring the Stool year ending June 30th,
