Name of school ; its annuity for support. 198. The military school established in the county of Rockingham, near the town of Lexington, shall be continued under the name of “ The Virginia Military Institute," and for the support of the said school the sum of fifteen thousand dollars shall be annually paid out of the public treasury." +

* An act of the 8th of February, 1816 (Acts 1815-16, p. 32, ch. 16), required the Executive to select and purchase three proper situations for arsenals; one on the western side of the Alleghany, and two on the eastern side thereof, above the city of Richmond, and to have buildiags erected for the preservation of the arm and fortifications for the defence of the arsenals. Thu Executive had a discretion as to which should be built first, and that first erected was to be supplied with certain arms and guards before another was commenced. See act in Code of 1819, p. 93, ch. 35, for regulating the militia, contained in 103 to 113, and the act of February, 1816. Under those acts the Lexington arsenal was established. Farther provision on the subject was made by the acts of 1923-4, p. 34, ch. 31, 2 1, 2, 4; 1826-7, p. 10, ch. 6, X 1, 6; 1827–8, p. 10, cb. 9; and 1834-5, p. 21, ch. 21, & 1 to t. By the act of 1823, so much of the previous acts as provided for erecting any arsenal, not heretofore erected, was repealed.

On the 22d of March, 1836, an act was passed (Session Acts 1835–6, p. 12, ch. 12 (for reorganizing the Lexington arsenal and establishing & military school in connection with Washington College. This act was amended by thit of 1836-7, p. 20, ch. 22. And the two acts were amended and reduced into one by that of 1839, p. 17, ch. 20, which has since been amended by the acts of 1810-41, p 55, ch. 28; 1841-2, p 21, ch. 24; Id., p. 22, ch. 26; 1814–5, p. 17, ch. 19, 1.

On the 8th of March, 1850 (see Acts 1819–50, p. '6. ch. 19), an appropriation was made for the erection of a new barracks for the cadets; an! by act of 29th May, 1852, this act was repealed, and $30,000 was appropriated for this purpose. An additional appropriation was made for the same purpose on the 1st March, 1851; Acts 1853–4, p. 31, ch. 42; and by act of March 31, 1858 (see Acts 1857-8, p. 115, ch 162), $25,000 more were appropriated to complete these buildings, enclose the grounds and procure a supply of water for the Institute.

The act of 1859-60, p. 103, ch. 7, contains a preumble, reciting " that the present buildings at the said Institute are insufficient for the purposes of the school as a military organization, and that additional appropriations are absolutely required to provide additional accommodations for cadets and for the support of the school, and that the corps of cadets in the course of their regular military education may readily be employed to prepare such munitions of war as may be demanded by the wants of the State; and appropriates $20,000 " for the erection of such additional buildings as may in the judgment of the Board of Visitors be demanded for giving eff ct to the purposes of the act; the amount to be drawn in tw) annual payments: one-half in 1860), and the other halt in 1881, upon the order of the Board of Visitors" The act took effect on the 28th of March, 1960

By joint resolution adopted on the 8th of March, 1856, the Governor was authorizd to contract with William J. Hubard for a bronze cast of Houdon's statue of Washington, to be placed at the Instituts, and ten thousand dollars was appropriated therefor. This statute bas been erected. 1855-6, p. 291, Res No. 12.

In 1861, Acts 1861, ch. 36, p. 58, an act was passed appropriating the sum of one thousand dol. lars, or so much thereof as may be necessary, to be applied under the direction of the Governor for the removal of the remains of General tarry Lee from the cometery of PM. Nightingale, Esq., in the Island of Cumberland, Georgia, to the public grounds of the Lexington Military Institota, and for er:cting over them a suitable monument.

This section has been altered. It read in the editi in of 1860“ the sum of seven thousand seven hundred and ten dollars shall be annually paid out of the public treasury, and in addition ther--to fift-en hindred dollars shall be annually paid out of the surplus revenue of the literary fund, as directed by the foorth section of the seventy-ninth chapter," and by the 13th section the additional snm of fire thousand seven hundred and pinety dollars is appropriated annually, which makes the sum of fifteen thousand dollars. That lutter amount is omitted in the 13th section. By act of 1969–70, ch. 259, 267. p. 417, the 79th chapter is repetled, and consequ-ntly the appropriation of the fiftee huodred dollars, contained in the fourth gection is also repealed In consegnence of this, an appropriation of fifteen thousand doll.rs has been regularly inserted into the annual appropriation law, which thus restores the amount now inserted into the section. Ses Acts 1870-71, ch. 307. p 403 : 1871-2. ch. 386, p 487. There have been several acts passed providing for the advance payment of the annuity to the Institute for several years, but these laws are omitted as temporary. Acts 1969-70, ch. 51, p. 62; 1870-71, ch. 300, p. 394.
