2. It is perceived that the expeose of the first class may be reduced $20,000, if only one arsenal building be required in that class. The same remark applies to the other classes.
3. There are times when several companios of troops may be required, temporarily at least, at each class of the arsenals. The barracks are, there- fore, made of the same size at each of the classes, and large enough to accommodate the companies as well as the troops of the ordnance proper. There has always been a deuciency at the arsonals in barracks, when they have been occupied by troops.
4. The above includes everything connected with the buildings and site proper, nothing more. The expenses of the apparatus and tools, utensils, engines, &c , which may be necessary to put the several classes into operation, are not included.
3. The extent of the site occupied by each of the classes may be the same ; and thus any one class may be enlarged into its next adjacent class, without other expense than is required by the additional buildings.
6. The estimated expenditures in these statenients are founded on the prices paid in the vicinity of Philadelphin, and are sufficiently near the truth, it is believed, for all positions which are not iu Florida, Louisiana, or Alabama.
