or a large number of officers, but I believe these will be found sufficient to secure the objects designed to be effected by the passage of the law. In nominating Captain Dimmock, I take the occasion to say, it is understood between us that he is to retain the command of the Public Guard, and to discharge the duties of Colonel of Ordnance, receiving for the performance of the duties of both positions, only the pay attached to the higher rank. The pay of a Colonel of Ordnance in the United States service, on the 1st day ofJanuary, 1850, was $2,554.67, exclusive of forage for horses. The pay and allowances of Captain Dimmock, as Commandant of the Public Guard, exclusive of quarters, is $1,688.91. By the arrangement proposed, a Colonel of Ordnance and a Commandant of the Public Guard will be secured for the sum of $2,554.67. If separated, the expense to the State will be $4,243.61 annually. The plan proposed will save $1,688.94 per year — an item, in the present condition of
