REPORT OF THE SURGEON GENERAL.

SURGEON GENERAL'S OFFICE,

20th October, 1832. Sır: la compliance with your instructions, I herewith enclose duplisate estates of the expenses of the Medical Department, of the army and of the Surgeon General's office, for the year 1833. The amount drawn and remitted to the acting apothecary, from the commencement of the presept year, to the termination of the 3d quarter, has been $10,911, and the amount of accounts rendered and settled by him, in the same period, has bees $10,846 22. Of the expenditures made on account of the Medical Department, by the officers of the Quarter Master's Department, during the sme period, accounts have been rendered and settled to the amount of 17,998 76.' In consequence of the movements and sickness on the northFest frontier, the expenses of the year, will be somewhat greater then heretofore, and a small addition has been made to the estimate, for medicines, bospital stores, and bedding.

All the officers of the Department are on duty, and under orders, except for, one of whom is on furlough, one in arrest by the civil authority, and two are unfit for duty, in consequence of ill health. The several reports and returns required by the regulations of the department, have been duly received, and all public property under the charge of the surgeons has been satisfactorily accounted for. The number of deaths reported in hospital, during the year ending June 30th, has been 109, of which 18 were from consumption, 16 from intemperance and acidents

, leaving 75 from all other causes. Allow me again respectfully “ to call the attention of the department, to the several memorials presented, and the several reports made in relation to graduating the pay of surgeon's of the army, in proportion to their term of service, and especially as they are now the only subordinate officers of either army or navy, whose pay has not been increased. In 1816 an additional ration was allowed to all lieutenants of the army, and subsequently a additional ration, to both captains and lieutenants, with $10 per month to the former, while on duty with their companies. In 1828 an addition of fio per month, and one ration per day, was made to lieutenants of the 0277, and in the same year, the pay of the surgeons and assistant surgeons of the navy, was increased after the periods of 5 and 10 years service

: The senior surgeon after 10 years, and while in actual service at sea," receives $85 per month more than the junior assistants, and $37 per month more than the full pay and emoluments of the army surgeon, when de actual duty with his regiment; while the latter can at no period and under no circumstances, receive above $11 per month more than the junior assistant, or than he did at his first appointment."

Very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,

JOS. LOVELL,

Surgeon General.
