They find that the new ntato, Department and the Coast surv,.y buildings are as nearly t'e proof as buildings can well be which are 'lled with recordts. The two old wings of the Capitol, adjoining the Contg esgional Library, are very defective, and have much wood-work untder the roof.

The la ce Winder building, in which are the engineers', ordnance and army rol:s, is highly combustible in the upper part. The Tro;~surv records are in a large degree exposed so far as the files of two of the i mportant ace "unting divisions are conceerred. Part of the Postffle'e D-partment r-oof is supported on woe -den rafters. The National M,:dical Museum, containing the fines- collection in the world, is in the old Ford's Theatre. under a wooden roof and cor nice.
