No. 8.

DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,

General Land Office, September 20, 1866. SIR: I have the honor to submit herewith estimates of the appropriations required by this branch of the public service for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1868:

1. The estimates of salaries for this office include the number of clerks authorized by the several acts of Congress, the amount estimated being the same as that called for and appropriated last year, with the “twenty per cent. additional to messengers, watchmen, and laborers,” in virtue of the seventh section of the general appropriation act approved July 23, 1866.

2. Estimates of contingent expenses of this office.

3. Estimates of salaries and commissions of district land officers and incidental expenses of district land offices. On account of an increase of business at some offices, and the reopening of other offices, it will be perceived that an excess of $6,700 is shown over the estimate of 1867.

4. Estimates for the surveying department on account of compensation of surveyors general, their clerks, and incidental expenses of the offices.

5. Estimates for surveying the public lands and boundary lines of States and Territories. Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

JOSEPH S. WILSON,

Commissioner. Hon. O. H. BROWNING,

Secretary of the Interior.

Estimates of appropriations required for the office of the Commissioner of the General Land

Office for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1868.

NOTE.—The "twenty per cent, additional" to messengers, watchmen and laborers, which was omitted last year by limitation of the act of June 25, 1864. is included in the present estimates, by virtue of the 7th section of general appropriation act of 1866; hence the increase of salary estimates over last year.
