L. E. CHITTENDEN, Register. TREASURY DEPARTMENT,

Register's Office, November 29, 1862.

WAR DEPARTMENT,

Washington City, November 28, 1862. Sir: I have the honor to submit herewith estimates of additional appropriations required for the service of this department for the present fiscal year. Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

EDWIN M. STANTON,

Secretary of War. Hon. S. P. CHASE, Secretary of the Treasury.

QUARTERMASTER GENERAL'S OFFICE,

Washington City, November 11, 1862. SIR: I have the honor to submit herewith an estimate for deficiencies in the appropriations of the last session of Congress, arising from the increase of force authorized by an act of Congress approved July 17, 1862, and called into the service of the United States by the President on the 4th of August, 1862, and from the increased price of certain supplies required for the army.

The estimate submitted on 230 May last, upon which the appropriation for the fleet of steam rams was made, provided for the maintenance of that fleet until the 30th of September, 1862, only, by which time it was hoped that the Mississippi river would be open and the fleet could be dispensed with. The failure of the attack on Vicksburg, however, has made it necessary to retain this fleet in service, and an item of $450,000 is included in the estimate of deficiencies, in order to provide for the expenses of the fleet during the nine months from 30th September, 1862, to 30th June, 1863. This estimate is marked D. I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

M. C. MEIGS,

Quartermaster General. Hon. EDWIN M. STANTON, Secretary of War.

D. Estimate of funds required to supply a deficiency in the appropriations for

the quartermaster's department for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1863, caused by the advance in prices of certain articles of supplies, and the in

creased force called into the service of the United States. For the regular supplies of the quartermaster's departmentfuel, forage, straw, and stationery ......................

$6,000, 000 00 For the purchase of cavalry and artillery horses.......... 11, 000, 000 00 For the transportation of the army and its supplies........ 25, 000, 000 00 For the erection, hire, and repairs of barracks, quarters, and hospitals .........................................

ORDNANCE OFFICE, War Department, Washington, November 27, 1862. SIR: In obedience to the order of 25th instant, I have the honor to submit, herewith an additional estimate of funds which will be required for the service of the Ordnance department during the remainder of the fiscal year ending June 30, 1863. Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

JAMES W, RIPLEY,

Brigadier General, Chief of Ordnance. Hon. E. M. STANTON,

Secretary of War.

Estimate of additional appropriations, under the control of the War Depart. ment, required for the ordnance service during the first and second quarters

of the fiscal year ending June 30, 1863. For the purchase of arms for volunteers and regulars, and ordnance and ordnance stores..........

$13,226,788 For the purchase of gunpowder and lead.........

1,500,000

14,726,788

REMARKS IN EXPLANATION TO THE FOREGOING ESTIMATES. Purchase of arms for volunteers, fc.-The amount of this item is deduced from the average past expenditure, during the last four months, of the amount appropriated by the act of Congress of July 5, 1862, which will not materially vary, it is supposed, during the remainder of the fiscal year. The estimates for the current fiscal year were not based on the supposition that the army in the field would be as large as it has been deemed necessary to make it, and hence the required additional appropriation for arms, &c.

Purchase of gunpowder and lead.-The same remarks apply to this item as to the previous one. A large quantity of lead and powder has been procured and is in store, but it is deemed advisable to keep up the supply, by purchasing additional quantities to replace that which is consumed.

JAMES W. RIPLEY,

Brigadier General, Chief of Ordnance. ORDNANCE Office,

Washington, D. C., November 27, 1862.

SURGEON GENERAL'S Office,

Washington City, D. C., November 26, 1862. SIR: I have the honor to lay before you an estimate of the funds required for the medical and hospital department of the army for the remainder of the fiscal year ending June 30, 1863.

The estimates for this department for the current fiscal year, laid before Congress at its last session, amounted to $6,220,984.

The amount appropriated by the act approved July 5, 1862, was $5,705,984.

According to the statement which I had the honor to submit on the 19th instant, the accounts and requisitions approved in this office during the period from July 1 to October 31, 1862, amounted to $5,502,809 02.
