No. 428.

[1st Session.

STATEMENT OF THE PAY, EMOLUMENTS, AND ALLOWANCES OF EVERT OFFICER AND AGENT IN THE NAVAL SERVICE, INCLUDING THE MARINE CORPS.

COMMUNICATED TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES MAY 29, 1830.

Navy Department, May 29, 1830.

Sir: In compliance with the resolution of the House of Representatives, dated the 4th of February last, I have the honor to transmit sundry papers and documents, which will be found to contain full information on the several points of inquiry, so far as it has been within the means of this Department to afford.

I am, very respectfully, &c., JOHN BRANCH.

To the honorable the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Treasury Department, Fourth Auditors Office, May 28, 1830.

Sir: In reply to the resolution of the House of Representatives, calling for a statement of the regular pay, emoluments, and allowances of every officer and agent in the naval service, together with statements of the irregular and contingent allowances made in the years 1828 and 1829, the amounts received by persons receiving salaries from the government, and the amounts paid to officers on leave of absence, waiting orders, or on furlough, and to surgeons at shore stations, passed on the 4th day of February, 1830, and by you referred to me, I have the honor to submit tables marked A to J, inclusive. Much labor and difficulty have been encountered in ascertaining the origin and progress of each regular and irregular allowance. The examination of the law, of the correspondence in this office, and of about twenty volumes of the correspondence in your office, has given me much information; but to answer the resolution of the House perfectly would require the additional research of several months.

Table A embraces the regular allowances of each grade of officers in the navy proper. Their origin and progress, as far as ascertained, are as follows, viz:

Captain commanding a squadron on separate service.—His pay and rations are prescribed by the act of 25th February, 1799. The present allowances, in lieu of cabin furniture, originated in a letter from the Secretary of the Navy to the Fourth Auditor, dated 28th May, 1827. He was, some years since, allowed a commission of two and one-half per cent. on bills drawn for the support of his squadron; and more recently $2,000 per year in lieu of commissions. This allowance was directed to be discontinued in 1826, though a few similar allowances have been since made.

Captain of a line-of-battle ship.—His pay and emoluments depend on the same authority as the preceding.

Captain of a vessel of thirty-two guns and upwards.—Same, except that no allowance is prescribed on account of cabin furniture. [It is not now the practice to order captains to the command of vessels of this size or under.]

Captain commanding a navy yard.—The act of 27th March, 1804, provides that the pay and emoluments of the commandant of the Navy yard at Washington shall be the same as those of a captain commanding a squadron on separate service. He claimed house rent, no quarters being provided for him. In 1807 the question was referred to the Attorney General, whose opinion favored the claim. On the 9th June, 1807, the Secretary of the Navy directed that $350 should be allowed him from the time of his appointment. Wood was also allowed; but what quantity I have not been able to ascertain. There is no law, so far as I know, which makes any allowance whatever to a captain of the navy in command of any other navy yard. Captains ordered upon that duty have, with a few exceptions, been allowed the

--686--

same pay and rations as the commandant of the Washington yard, upon no other authority than orders of the Secretary of the Navy. Their other allowances have also been similar.

On the 17th of June, 1821, the allowances of the commandants of the yards at Portsmouth, N. H., Charlestown, Mass., Brooklyn, N. Y., Philadelphia, Pa., and Gosport, Va., were fixed at twenty-eight cords of wood, sixty-five dollars per annum for candles, three servants at eight dollars per month and one ration per day, each, making twenty-four dollars per month for servants and rations, and $300 per year for house rent, except the Philadelphia yard, the commandant of which was allowed $600 for house rent.

On the 30th May, 1824, the Secretary directed that $100 per month, sixteen rations per day, sixty-five dollars per annum for candles, thirty cords of wood, three servants at eight dollars per month and one ration per day, should be allowed to the commandants of the yards at Washington, Philadelphia, Portsmouth, Norfolk, New York, and Charlestown, Massachusetts. To the commandant of the Philadelphia yard, the allowance of $600 for house rent has been continued. The same allowances, with $600 for house rent, have since been extended to the yard at Pensacola. At Baltimore, and Charleston, S. C, the commandants received the same allowances, except that they have but eight rations, and $300 for house rent. Where furnished with houses, no house rent is allowed.

In every case, rations have been allowed for each servant, in addition to his monthly pay, at a commutation price of twenty-five cents each.

Captain waiting orders, or on leave of absence.—It is but indirectly that any pay whatever is given, by law, to a captain under these circumstances. The act of 21st April, 1806, declares that captains, masters commandant, lieutenants, and midshipmen "shall receive no more than half their monthly pay during the time when they shall not be under orders for actual service."

On the 1st March, 1819, the Secretary of the Navy addressed to the Fourth Auditor a letter to the following effect, viz:

"You are authorized to allow to all officers of the navy of the United States, who are not on furlough, full pay and rations."

Such allowances have been made ever since. For the purpose, I presume, of entitling all the officers of the navy to full pay under this executive regulation, the Secretary of the Navy, in 1824, issued orders, directing them to hold themselves in readiness for active service; and on the 21st of May, addressed a letter to the Fourth Auditor to the following effect, viz:

"To avoid difficulties for the future, to do justice to the officers, and place them in a proper situation for the public service, I have issued orders to them to hold themselves in readiness for active service, suited to their rank."

Thus, all the officers of the navy were taken out of the purview of the act of 1806, construed to be "under orders for actual service," and entitled to full pay and rations.

Captain on furlough.—By the act of 1806, he receives only half pay; but there have, of late years, been very few cases of furlough; all is resolved into leave of absence and waiting orders, for the substantial reasons already enumerated. Indeed, there are but nine furloughs on the register for 1830, while there are about 300 waiting orders, on leave of absence, or under examination.

Master commandant in command of a sloop-of-war.—His pay and rations are fixed by the act of 25th February, 1199. The allowance in lieu of cabin furniture originated in the same manner as the captain's.

Master commandant waiting orders, or on leave of absence.—He is brought within the provisions of the act of 1799, in the same manner that captains, under similar circumstances, are.

Master commandant commanding on shore.—His pay and rations are fixed by construction of the same act. His house rent, fuel, wood, candles, and servants, are made in the same manner and depend upon the same authority as those made to captains at the navy yards.

Master commandant on furlough.—He is put upon half pay under the act of 1806.

Master commandant recruiting.—He is placed on the footing of a master commandant commanding on shore, by the letter of the Secretary of the Navy to the Fourth Auditor, dated December 3, 1827.

Lieutenant in command.—His pay and rations were fixed at $50 per month and four rations per day by the act of 1799, and increased $10 per month and one ration by the act of 24th May, 1828. His allowance in lieu of cabin furniture is fixed in the same manner as the captain's.

Lieutenant not in command, but attached to a ship, on leave of absence, or waiting orders.—His pay and rations are fixed, by the act of 18th April, 1814, at $40 per month and three rations per day, and increased, by the act of 1828, $10 per month and one ration per day. He receives full pay and rations by the same authority as captains receive them when waiting orders or on leave of absence.

First lieutenant of a navy yard.—His pay and rations are fixed as last above stated. His house rent, fuel, candles, and servant, rest on the same authority as similar allowances to captains under similar circumstances.

Lieutenant on furlough.—He is restricted to half pay, in accordance with the act of 1806. A sailingmaster.—His pay and rations are fixed by the act of 18th April, 1814.

Master of the Portsmouth, New York, Philadelphia, Norfolk, Pensacola, and Sackett's Harbor stations.— His pay and rations are fixed as above. His house rent, wood, candles, and servant, depend on the same authority as similar allowances to captains at navy yards.

Master at the Boston and Washington stations.—His pay, emoluments, and allowances are the same as the foregoing, and rest on the same authority, with the exception of house rent.

Purser on board a ship.—His pay and rations are fixed by the act of 18th April, 1814.

Purser on a station.—His pay and rations are fixed by the same act as the foregoing. His allowance for house rent, fuel, candles, and a servant, originated in the same manner as similar allowances to captains of navy yards.

Purser on furlough.—He is placed on half pay by the authority of the general usage of the Department only, not being included in the act of 1806.

Midshipmen.—Their pay and rations are fixed by the President, in pursuance of authority vested in him by the act of 18th April, 1814.

Passed midshipmen.—Their pay and rations originate from the same source, under a construction of the same act.

Chaplain.—His pay and rations are fixed by the act of 18th April, 1814.

Captain attached to a station.—His pay and rations are fixed by the same act as the foregoing. His other allowances originated in the same manner as those of captains of yards.

Surgeons.—Their pay and rations are fixed by the acts of the 24th May, 1828, and 21st January, 1829.

--687--

Their other allowances, when attached to navy yards, are fixed by the same authority as those made to captains of yards.

Assistant surgeons.—Their pay, rations, and allowances are fixed by the same authority as the foregoing.

Captain's clerk.—His appointment is authorized by the act of March 27, 1794, which also empowers the President to fix his compensation. The authority is repeated in the act of 18th April, 1814, the clerk being one of the "petty officers."

Commodore's secretary.—He is appointed, it is believed, without authority of law, and his compensation is fixed by the Secretary of the Navy. The first estimate for the payment of such an officer was in 1828.

Tables B and C present the regular allowances made to regular navy agents and other agents employed by the Department. They originated as follows, viz:

Navy agents.—By the act of March 3, 1809, their compensation is fixed at one per cent. on their disbursements, provided the whole amount shall not exceed $2,000 per year. It was doubted whether, under this act, any allowance other than this commission could be made to them. It was some years before a claim for office expenses seems to have been set up, and then it was rejected by the First Comptroller. The subject was referred to the Attorney General, who gave an opinion favorable to the claim. In January, 1817, the Secretary of the Navy decided "that reasonable clerk hire, stationery, and office rent are admissible in the settlement of navy agents' accounts." In September, 1819, the subject was again before the Attorney General, who gave an opinion adverse to these claims. It seems, however, not to have been regarded by the Department; for such allowances have been made ever since. The allowances at Boston and Philadelphia had been fixed, as they now stand, in June, 1817, by the Secretary of the Navy. Those at New York have been since increased, and similar allowances made at all the other stations by the same authority.

The foreign navy agents have been considered as not embraced in the act of 1809. Their compensation has been regulated by their instructions from the Secretary of the Navy, which generally allow from two to two and a half per cent. on their disbursements. The aggregate per annum depends on the amount disbursed, and varies from an inconsiderable sum to $5,000 or $6,000.

Agents employed for the preservation of live oak, &c.—Their compensation is fixed by the Secretary of the Navy.

Agent to receive Africans at Liberia.—His compensation is fixed by the President, by construction of the act of 3d March, 1819, for the suppression of the slave trade.

The table marked D contains a statement of the pay, emoluments, and allowances made to each grade of officers in the marine corps, according to the rules adopted in the settlement of their accounts previous to the year 1829, and the amounts since allowed under the decision of that year. As far as ascertained, the following is a correct history of the origin and progress of those allowances:

Lieutenant colonel commandant.—His office was created by an act passed 22d April, 1800, which declared that he should be entitled to the same pay and emoluments as a lieutenant colonel in the army. These had been fixed by the act of March 3d, 1799, at $75 per month, six rations per day, $12 per month for forage. In June, 1800, it was decided by the Secretary of the Navy that he must be considered as in command of a separate post, and entitled to double rations. In July , 1812, an act passed allowing each officer in the army the pay and emoluments of a private soldier, in lieu of each waiter, to which he was entitled by the army regulations. In September, 1813, the Secretary of the Navy directed the same allowance to be made to the officers of the marine corps. In consequence, the lieutenant colonel commandant was allowed for two servants $14.84 per month each, amounting to $356.16 per year. The allowance actually made to him for forage has varied with those made to a lieutenant colonel, and afterwards to a colonel in the army. The fuel allowed to him has varied in the same manner. He is furnished with public quarters.

In May, 1829, it was decided that the laws of the army, passed since the creation of his office, do not apply to him, and there being no law varying his compensation since, he must be paid according to the law of 1799; that, being in command of the whole corps, he does not command a separate post, and is not entitled to double rations; and that the law of 1812, relative to servants, does not apply to the marine corps, and could not be applied to them by the Secretary of the Navy; and that he was not entitled to any allowance for servants. From the 1st April, 1829, therefore, he has been reduced to six rations per day, to $12 per month for forage, and no servants, except that he May take waiters from the line.

Brevet lieutenant colonel, commanding on shore.—An act of 16th April, 1814, authorizes the President to confer brevet rank in the marine corps, and entitles the officers brevetted to the pay and emoluments of their brevet rank when "commanding separate stations or detachments." The rank of major then existed in the corps. There were brevet majors when the corps was placed on the peace establishment in 1817, and that rank was abolished. The President, however, continued to make brevet majors. In 1825, it was finally determined that, as there was no such rank in the line of the corps, such brevets were not authorized by law, and were consequently void. The captains entitled to brevets were brevetted lieutenant colonels. They received the same pay, emoluments, and allowances as a lieutenant colonel in the army. How this grade of pay came to be allowed them, I have not been able to ascertain. There was not, in law or in practice, any such grade of pay in the line of their corps.

In May, 1829, it was decided that, inasmuch as they were brevetted to the same rank as their lieutenant colonel commandant, they must have the same pay when entitled to brevet pay at all. As captains they were entitled to three rations; as brevet lieutenant colonels, when commanding separate posts, to six, the number allowed to their lieutenant colonel commandant; but they had been allowed ten, the double rations of a lieutenant colonel commanding in the army. They were brought down to six, the number belonging to their brevet rank. Their allowances for forage and service, having originated from the same source as those of the lieutenant colonel commandant, were reduced to the same standard for the same reason. When not furnished with public quarters, they are allowed the same house rent as the staff officer of the corps.

Brevet lieutenant colonel, commanding afloat.—He also received the pay and rations of a lieutenant colonel in the army, on the same ground; and, in May, 1829, was placed, in this respect, on the same footing as the lieutenant colonel commandant, for the reasons already given.

Captains.—By the act of the 11th July , 1798, their compensation was fixed at $40 per month and three rations per day. They were allowed for one servant by the same authority that their lieutenant

--688--

colonel commandant was allowed for two. An allowance for wood has been made them by Executive authority, ever since the establishment of their corps. By a precedent set in 1818, and running back to 1813, they have been allowed for house rent when not furnished with public quarters. When in command on shore, they have received double rations. By the decision of May, 1829, they were deprived of the servant and double rations.

A captain not in command received his lawful pay, rations and servant, unless on furlough, when only half pay was allowed him. If attached to a station, he has his house rent and fuel. The decision of May, 1829, took away his servant.

First lieutenant.—By the act of 11th of July , 1798, his pay and rations were fixed at $30 per month and three rations per day. An act passed 24th April, 1816, gave an additional ration to each subaltern in the army. In 1824, the Fourth Auditor applied this act to first lieutenants in the marine corps, and allowed them four rations—one more than their captains received, and one more than was allowed to first lieutenants in the army. Their allowances for one servant, fuel, and house rent, originated in the same manner as like allowances made to their captains.

The decision of May, 1829, cut off the additional ration and the allowance for a servant.

Second lieutenant.—His pay was fixed at $25 per month, with two rations per day, by the act of 11th July , 1198. His rations were increased to three, in 1818, by the Fourth Auditor, who applied to him the provision of the act of 1816, which gives one additional ration to each subaltern in the army. One servant, fuel, and house rent, were allowed to him on the same authority as to first lieutenants.

The decision of May, 1829, cut off the additional ration and servant.

Lieutenants on shore, acting as assistant quarter-masters, were allowed, until 1829, $20 per month. Officers commanding a post or detachment on separate service have, until 1829, been allowed double rations.

Officers commanding marines afloat have been allowed double rations by authority of a letter from the Secretary of the Navy, dated 29th March, 1805. In 1812, an allowance of $15 per month was made to them for receiving and distributing clothing, running back to 1809, 1810, and 1811. This allowance was continued until 1829. By the decision of May, in that year, both of these allowances were discontinued.

Paymaster.—The act of 16th April, 1814, authorized the appointment of an adjutant, paymaster, and quartermaster, to be taken from the line of captains or subalterns, who were entitled to receive "$30 in addition to their pay in the line, in full of all emoluments." The present paymaster is a captain, and according to this law, which has never been changed, is entitled to $70 per month, three rations per day, and the other allowances of a captain. In 1825, however, the Fourth-Auditor placed him on the footing of a paymaster in the army, giving him $50 per month, four rations per day, and allowance for two servants, forage for two horses, together with fuel and house rent. In 1828 it was decided, by the same authority, that he was entitled to eight rations, and forage for four horses, and he claimed $60 per month, the pay of a major of cavalry in the army; but no account was settled in which these allowances were made to him, and the decision has been reversed. The house rent for the whole staff was fixed at $250, in January, 1823, and increased to $288, in February, 1828.

From the 1st April, 1829, his pay and emoluments have been brought back to the standard prescribed by law.

Quartermaster.—The present quartermaster is a first lieutenant, and, by the laws referred to, is entitled to $60 per month and three rations per day, with the other allowances of a first lieutenant. The Fourth Auditor, however, applied to him, also, the law of the army in relation to quartermasters, and allowed him $60 per month, four rations per day, two servants, forage for two horses, with fuel and house rent. By a precedent set in 1823, he was also allowed $30 per month, as commissary of subsistence. By authority of the Secretary of the Navy, in 1805, he was also allowed $150 per year as superintendent of the armory. His house rent was increased, in 1828, from $250 to $288.

From the 1st April, 1829, his pay and emoluments have been made to conform to existing laws, and his extra allowances have been discontinued.

Adjutant and inspector.—The present adjutant and inspector is a first lieutenant, and by law is entitled to $60 per month, three rations per day, and all other allowances made to his lineal rank. It does not appear that he was placed on a similar footing with the other staff officers until 1828, when it was decided that he should be allowed forage for two horses, and an additional servant. His allowance for house rent was also increased from $200 to $288.

From the 1st April, 1829, his pay and emoluments have been reduced to the standard of the law.

In every case where a servant is mentioned, it should be recollected that the real allowance is $14.84 in money; and when fuel is mentioned, it is $7 for every cord of wood stated to be allowed.

Table marked E, presents sundry allowances made by the Navy Department to persons receiving salaries from the government. The Navy Commissioners have been paid traveling expenses and a per diem allowance when absent on public business, upon the ground that they are captains of the navy, and, as such, entitled to those allowances. Upon similar grounds have they been paid for extra services. The same rules of allowance have been extended to their secretary, although he is not an officer of the navy. The salary, as well as other allowances of the engineer for building dry docks, were fixed by the Secretary of the Navy in 1828. The salaries to the secretaries of the navy pension and hospital funds were fixed by the commissioners of those funds. The commissions paid for purchase of stocks were, I believe, in every instance, sanctioned by the Secretary of the Navy.

The commissions paid Mr. M'Daniel, as special agent, were, as far as I know, authorized only by usage.

Tables marked F and G exhibit the allowances other than regular allowances made during the years 1828 and 1829. For greater convenience, the traveling expenses have been separated from the others. The traveling expenses of all officers traveling under orders were fixed at fifteen cents per mile, by the Secretary of the Navy, in March, 1817.

The amount allowed for traveling expenses in 1828, was

$37,888 56

The amount allowed for traveling expenses in 1829, was

23,205 70

Difference in favor of 1829

$14,682 86

--689--

The other irregular allowances not fixed by law are contained in table G.

When the allowance of commissions for drawing bills originated, or by what authority, I know not. When allowed to captains in the navy, it was obviously intended to increase their emoluments. It has had the same effect upon pursers when allowed to them. Nor do I know when the allowance of two and a half per cent. commission to acting pursers commenced, or by what authority. It is but a fair allowance in many cases; in some, it has made their compensation exorbitant. No reason is perceived why they might not be paid as actual pursers, or at least a fixed monthly allowance.

An allowance of four dollars for each recruit was formerly made to recruiting officers, and is still continued to officers recruiting men in foreign countries; but I know not when it originated. On the 3d December, 1827, the Secretary of the Navy directed that, from the 1st of January, 1828, the same allowance should be made to masters commandant, stationed at recruiting rendezvous, as are made to those attached to navy yards, with a reasonable allowance for necessary expenses, office rent, music, and stationery. The same rule was extended to surgeons and lieutenants, with the exception of expenses, &c. Midshipmen were directed to be allowed $3 per week.

The allowance for attending courts-martial as witnesses, members, or judge advocate, originated with the Secretary of the Navy, but I know not when. Citizens attending as witnesses are allowed $3 per day; officers of the navy, $1.50. The members of the court have generally been allowed $1.50, sometimes $3. The judge advocate, if a citizen, is generally allowed $10 per day, during his actual attendance, and for a reasonable time to make up the record. Officers of the navy, acting in that capacity, are allowed half that sum. Sometimes citizens, acting in that capacity, have been allowed gross sums to a large amount. I have never seen any written rule by which these allowances are regulated.

The allowance for attending the board for the examination of midshipmen has originated, I presume, from the same source, and has not been confined to any written rule; at least, none such is to be found in this office. In 1820, midshipmen were authorized, by the Secretary of the Navy, to receive traveling expenses to and from the place of examination, but no per diem while attending. The rule was afterwards changed, and they were denied traveling expenses to the place of examination, but allowed a per diem of $1.50 while attending. If they did not pass they were allowed nothing. The present Secretary of the Navy has decided to allow them traveling expenses to the place of examination, and a per diem when they pass in any one branch of naval service, as well as their traveling expenses to their homes or stations.

It has been the practice to pay the passage of officers ordered home from foreign stations, or sent home on account of ill health, when, in consequence of having no opportunity to return in a public vessel, they are under the necessity of coming in merchantmen or packets. I do not know when it originated. The Secretary of the Navy directed that the passage money of seamen discharged in foreign countries shall be paid, unless there was an opportunity for them to return in public vessels.

The allowance of difference of pay and rations is authorized, by the navy regulations, to officers necessarily acting in situations above their rank. There is no law which sanctions the allowance. The present Secretary has directed that these allowances shall be confined to cases where the claimant has received an acting appointment and been rated according to his acting rank on the pay roll.

In the explanatory cases attached to the table will be found a history of the allowance of a commission on moneys paid to mechanics and laborers at the several navy yards, together with many other matters, somewhat in detail.

Opposite the miscellaneous items in the table will be found references to the authorities upon which those allowances have been made, in cases not embraced in the foregoing.

By the recapitulation annexed to the table, it appears that the aggregate of these allowances was,

The Naval Register of 1830 shows:

Thirty-seven captains, of whom there were on furlough,
leave of absence, waiting orders, suspended, or under arrest

11

Thirty-nine masters commandant, same

8

Two hundred and fifty-eight lieutenants, same

113

Thirty-four surgeons, same

6

Thirty-one assistant surgeons, same

7

Sixteen acting assistant surgeons, same

0

Forty-three pursers, same

10

Nine chaplains, same

Forty-one passed midshipmen, same

18

Four hundred and thirty-five midshipmen, same, and on examination

Thirty-two sailingmasters, same

11

Eighteen boatswains, same

4

Twenty gunners, same

3

Sixteen carpenters, same

2

Sixteen sailmakers, same

3

332

Hence, it appears that the proportion of officers and petty officers in the navy of the United States, wholly unemployed, is nearly one-third of the entire corps. As this was the case when the register was made out, it may be presumed that it presents a fair average of the number of those who are constantly unemployed.

By the same evidence, it appears that the number of those actually at sea, is:

Of captains

6

Of masters commandant

12

Of lieutenants

101

Of surgeons

11

Of assistant surgeons

19

Of acting assistant surgeons

11

Of pursers

20

Of chaplains

280

Of sailingmasters

3

Of boatswains

10

Of gunners

10

Of carpenters

11

Of sailmakers

13

533

Hence, it appears that only a little more than half of the whole corps are actually employed in sea service. The residue, not on leave of absence, &c., 189 in number, are employed in the navy yards, in recruiting, in receiving, ships, in the ships in ordinary, &c., &c. It therefore takes 189 officers on shore, or thereabouts, to keep 533 afloat, while 332 are resting from their labors. Many of those on shore are paid better than those afloat, and all, with the exception of a few on furlough, as well.

An accurate calculation of what proportion of the three millions annually appropriated for the service of the navy, which is paid to the navy actually afloat, and what is paid at home to keep up the establishment, would present interesting results.

I return table J, with this report, it being impracticable to ascertain the amounts which have been paid to the officers therein named.

I could wish this report were more perfect. By continued investigations, I hope to make myself master of all the regulations which have ever existed in the Navy Department, wherever concealed. Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

AMOS KENDALL.

Hon. Secretary of the Navy.
