A sir i am directed by the lords of the committee of privy Council for Trade to invite the attention of the committee for managing the affairs of Lloyd a to the accompanying report of the conference which on the suggestion of Lieut. Maury of the United states Navy was held at Brussels on the subject of establishing an uniform system of meteorological observations at sea and concurring in a general plan of observations on the winds and Cui tents of the Ocean with a View to the acquirement of a More Correct knowledge of the Laws which govern the motion of those elements and to the improvement of navigation. In consequence of quot the suggestions contained in that report her majesty s government has submitted and parliament has sanctioned a vote for instruments and for the tabulation of logs and other meteorological records and Captain Fitz Roy of the Royal Navy has been appointed to assist this Board in the discussion of the observations. The object of the arrangements will be to attain if possible to such an improved knowledge of the currents of the Ocean and of the direction of the prevailing winds As May materially diminish the risk and labor of navigation and shorten the duration of voyages. As an acknowledgement for the pains and attention of such masters of foreign going ships As Are willing to co operate with her majesty s government in this undertaking and As Are competent to fulfil the conditions required of them it is proposed to place a distinguishing Mark against their names in the merchant Navy list and to be copies of the charts and books which will be printed from time to time from their Ovra and their brother officers observations during the time they continue to contribute. These books and Clearts Avill contain information As to the prevailing winds and currents in the part of the Ocean of Avrich they treat and of the most desirable tracks to Fol Loav in order to make the surest and quickest passages and How to avoid or mitigate the violence of hurricanes amp a. And further to such masters As will undertake to fill up the columns of the abstract logs headed in Black and to make observations at the hours denoted by the Black figures for their successive voyages the United states Gove ziment have directed to be furnished Gratis a set of charts and sailing directions of Lieut. Maury of the United states Navy for the part of the Ocean they Are navigating. In order to facilitate the desired co operation Standard inst i ments have been prepared and May be obtained at a diminished Cost for the use of the merchant Navy. lords Are in Hopes that the object of this undertaking and the inducements held out to those who Are willing to co operate in it will be considered by the More wealthy shipping companies and private shipowners of sufficient importance to induce them to encourage the officers in command of their ships to undertake those observations and to furnish some at least of their masters with the requisite instruments but in other cases in order to Render the Experiment As extensive As possible inst nimets will be furnished by the Marine department of this Board to masters desiring to have them and giving sufficient proof of their attainments. The extent to which their lordships May be Able to do this will however be limited to the Means placed by parliament at their lordships disposal and my lords Are not prepared to pledge themselves to continue it years. I am to add that it is very desirable that any masters of foreign going ships who May be a Illing to Avail themselves of the privileges mentioned above should communicate with As Little delay As possible with this department either directly or through the agent appointed for this purpose at the outposts.
