The superintendence and direction of these 5 Classes of objects would be distributed among the 5 Inspectors.

The Department of Construction, under the direction of the Secretary of the Navy, and of the Board of Inspectors, would prepare all the drafts, plans, and instructions, for the building of all the Vessels of the Navy; construct the models, and, when approved, direct and superintend, under the control of the Board of Inspectors, the building and repairing of the Ships, Vessels, Boats, the formation of masts, spars, &c., and the contracting for procuring all the materials of wood, and of copper, in pigs, bolts, and sheets, necessary for the supply of the Navy; construct from the lines, in the mould left, all the moulds requisite for moulding and bevelling the timber in the forest, under the direction of skilful Persons to be employed by the Constructor for that purpose, and superintend the construction of wharves, ships, workshops, and engines, required in building and repairing Ships of War.

It is a copious subject, in which it is difficult to combine brevity with perspicuity.

My aim has been to provide a practical, efficient, and economical System, with as much individual and collective responsibility as may be attainable; and I feel a persuasion that the result would not greatly disappoint the estimate I have formed: the wisdom of the Senate will better appreciate its merits.

I have the honour to be, with the highest respect, Sir, your obedient Servant,

The Hon. the President of the Senate.

W. JONES.
