It is gratifying to be able to record the fact, that there has ' been a large saving in the estimated amount, which was deemed necessary to be expended for labor and materials in the completion of the work, which is due, in great part, to the ever vigilant and watchful care and economy practiced by the Superintendent, who gave to the work during its progress his undivided attention. The appropriations made by the different states amount to the sum of $62,229 77, which has been so judiciously expended as to do an amount of work, which at low estimates, it was deemed would require the expenditure of $85,852 32.

Although the apportionment of Maryland, as will be seen by reference to the foregoing table, was $2,787 40, yet her appropriation was, under the act of 1805, $7000. Subsequently the legislature, at its extra session in January, A. D. 1866, voted unanimously the additional appropriation of $8000, thus making the sum altogether appropriated by her, to amount

*-Appropriated $7,000.       # appropriated $1,000.
