Tlic orgaiii'atiou of an increased force, it

Wtth regard to arm, the Seeretury pays:
The at ins and ordnance sup) lied fi nm our
national armories, under the able supertii
tcnduioo of the Ordnance Uiui ati, compare
m, ist favorably with tho very host manufac
tured for foreign governments. Tho cele
brated F.ulield rille, so callml. is a simple
copy of llie regular arm niauui'.icliire 1 for
many years in the Hpringlicld armory.
1 c ions to the early part of last year, the
u.overnmi nt had a supply of arms ami mu
nitions of war sullioieut to any emergency ;
but through the bad faith ol those enlrti'd
ed with their guardianship, they wore tak 'ii
from ihoir proper depositories, and distrib
uted through portions of the country ex
pected to take pal t iu the eouten plaled n hel
lion. In const:, pieuce of the serious loss
thus sustained, there was available, ut the
commencement of the outbreak, a much
less supply than usual of nil kinds. Hut
through the e:d ami activity of the Ord
nance liincaii, the eiiibanii'..;meitt thus crea
ted has been iu a great lueasuie overcome.
As the capacity of the government anne,
ries was Hot eiiial to the supply needed,
even after having doubled (he force at tho
Springfield arm uy, the department found it
absolutely necessary tii procure aims to
sum extent 1 rout private iiianufaeltuois. Il
is believed that from these sources they can
be obtained e -pitil iu quality and not much
higher hi cost, than those made in the na
tional workshops. It wouhl, tnerelore ap
