SIR: I have the honor to transmit herewith the manuscript of a bulletin which contains matter comparable to that contained in No. 7 of the new series, viz, miscellaneous articles, reports and notes which are difficult to classify, but which deserve prompt publication. I therefore recommend its publication as Bulletin 10, new series, of this Division. Respectfully,
