SIR: The undersigned, having attended the general examination of the cadets of the United States Military Academy as a Board of Visiters, submit the following report as the result of their observations.
The board directed their inquiries to the course of instruction, both military and scientific, to the internal police, discipline, and fiscal con. cerns of the institution. In making these inquiries, every facility was afforded by the superintendent and members of the academic staff. Io order that these inquiries might be prosecuted with greater advantage, committees were appointed by the board, with instruction to inquire especially into the portion of the foregoing subjects referred to them, respectively, and to report the result of their observations.
The reports of those committees, which are herewith transmitted, will convey to you much information in detail, wbich could not conveniently be embodied in this report.
As this is professedly a military institution, the attention of the board was first directed to the course of military instruction. Although this branch embraces a wide field, it is intended to speak of it as limited 10 engineering, artillery, and infantry tactics.
Engineering is divided into two branches, civil and military, and in connexion with the latter are taught the science of war, so far as it relates to the attack and defence of military positions, and the providing of defensive means for an army operating in the field.
In the course of civil engineering are taught the properties, preparations, and use of materials of construction ; elementary parts of buildings, and the art of construction generally, including decorative architecture; the manner of laying out and constructing roads; the construction of the various kinds of bridges; the general principles which regulate the removal of obstructions that impede the navigation of rivers : the survey, location, and construction of canals and railroads; and the formation of artificial, and the improvement of natural harbors. . This branch is taught to the first or graduating class by lectures, and a series of drawlings and notes, prepared by the professor from the best authorities, and lithographed at the press belonging in the institution, under the title of “Outlines of the Course of Civil Engineering." Drawings, illustrative of the prominent parts of the subject, aio executed by the cadets ; and these exhitit great nea iness of execution, as well as much precision in detail.
Next in order is the course of military engineering,
This comprises field and permanent fortification. In the first are taught to the same class the principles which regulate the construction fof field intrenchments ; the different kinds of lines ; batteries for the various kinds of orduance; lhe armament of intrenchments, with reference to the attack and defence ; enclosed and detached works; defence of posts, and the construction of military bridges ; permanent fortificasion, including a complete description of the bastion front; the attack and defence of the same; a critical examination of the principal systems of fortifications ; the construction and armament of a fortress; the liy
draulic works used in the defence of military positions ; mining ; the principles of deflement, and their application to works constructed for inland and maritime defence. Military engineering is taught from a text-book, and from notes prepared with judgment and skill by the professor-the whole being amply illustrated by drawings, executed by the students, under the inimediate supervision of instructers.
To the professional ability of the professor to whom this department is confided, the very able and satisfactory manner in which his pupils acquitted themselves in the various parts of their course at the black board, in presence of the visiters, afforded the most pleasing and ample testimony.
No changes, either in the course of study or organization, are at present contemplated, nor are any deemed necessary. The board, however, would recommend the continuance of small appropriations of money by Congress for the purpose of providing the departinent with such works and models as the professor may from time to time require.
Instruction is given to the cadets of the first class iu artillery tactics during the encampment, which usually commences in June and terminates on the 1st of September following. During this time they are required to recite upon a system of field artillery, at the same time that
they are taught a course of pyrotechny, mortar exercise, and target practice, with guns of various calibers, as well as mortars and howitzers. Cadets of the other classes are also taught the drill of field artillery during the suspension of the other academic studies.
It is thought by the officer at the head of this department that the time allowed for recitation is insufficient, and that much which ought to be studied thoroughly is necessarily passed over rapidly.
In our country there is no establishment provided by law especially for instruction in artillery. All the education our officers receive in this branch of study is, with the exception of the mere drill of an artillery garrison, obtained at this place. This deficiency would seem to suggest the importance of placing this department of the academy upon a more enlarged and permanent basis.
It is the opinion of the board that would be greatly to the advanlage of this course of instruction if a permanent assistant were attached
to it, iustead of the inode now in use of detailing cadets from the graduating class.
In connexion with this subject, the board would remark, that the moving of ordnance on the field, by the bodily exertions of the cadets alone, Jis a requisition upon them of great severity, and is at the saine time obnoxious to the objection, that it keeps the cadets entirely unskilled in the only mode of using the field-piece employed in actual service. The board would, therefore, suggest the propriety of procuring a number of borses sufficient for artillery exercise, and also for instruction in cavalry tactics.
The same horses would be used for both purposes, and the number required would not exceed forty.
Cavalry tactics have never been taught at this academy. Cavalry, as an arm of national defence, is confessedly of great importance. It is subInitted whether instructions in that branch might not be advantageously added to the course of instruction at this institution.
