as assigned to the command of the powder division, an important and complicated duty, which could not have been better performed. Surgeon Phillips and Assistant Surgeon Garnett were prompt and attentive in the discharge of their duties ; their kind and considerate care of the wounded, and the skill and ability displayed in the t came under their charge, and justly entitled them to the confidence of officers and crew. I beg leave to call the attention of the department to the case of Doctor Garnett. He stands deservedly high in his profession, is at the head of the list of assistant surgeons, and there being a vacancy, in consequence of the recent death of Surgeon Blacknall, I should be much gratified if Doctor Garnett could be promoted to it. The engines and machinery, upon which so much depended, performed much better than was expected. This is due to the intelligence, experience, and coolness of Acting Chief-Engineer Ramsey. His efforts were ably seconded by his assistan

Permit me then, sir, to read a brief sketch of the life of him whose portrait I entrust to your Honor's keeping. The Hon. James Mercer Garnett, of Elmwood, Essex county, Va., was born June 8th, 1770, the second child and oldest son of ten children. His father, Muscoe Garnett, of Essex county, was the son of James Garnett and Elizabeth Muscoe, his second wife, the daughter of Captain Salvator Muscoe, and was the only child of that marriage.
