reported at their sales-rooms, when there is an office in connection with the factory, where the account of materials, labor, and product is kept.

Where two establishments, having each a distinct Production, are owned by one and the same person, they will be separately reported, the name of the owner being repeated.

Where the same establishment carries on two successive processes of Manufacturing, as, for example, when a forge and rolling mill, or a furnace and foundry, are united, the Materials and Productions of each will be separately given. It may be necessary, in such cases, to estimate in regard to the share of each portion of the establishment rather more freely than would be desirable in establishments of less complex production. It is desirable to have the facts of each distinct line of manufacture by themselves, so that the returns of every industrial interest may be tabulated without intermixture of others.

It is not believed to be necessary to explain at length the use of the word “Materials” in respect to manufactures. It will be enough to say that what is the Product of one establishment may become the Material of another : as, iron ore is the product of the mine, but the material of the furnace, which produces iron in pigs, to become, again, the material of the foundry.

Each page of Schedule 4 is divided into ten spaces, each intended to report one establishment. One line is drawn across the entire page, on which to report the name of the establishment, kind of product, labor employed, wages, &c., as well as the kind, quantity, and value of the material consumed, and of the article produced, where the material and production are of only one kind each. Additional lines are drawn under the latter heads, for use in those cases where Materials and Products are of more than one kind. In case of very large establishments, with great variety of products, the space intended for two establishments may be taken.

In column 1 the name of the individual, or the style of the firm or corporation, should be written with sufficient fullness and distinctness to enable the Census Office to conduct such subsequent correspondence as may be necessary.

In column 2 the kind of business and character of product should be described as specifically as possible; as, for example, fishing hooks, hoisting apparatus, skirt supporters, speaking tubes, &c. General terms will be avoided, when specific and technical terms will cover the operations.

The cost of Superintendence, Rent, Freight, and other general expenses of a manufacturing establishment are not to be included in "Materials.” Mill supplies" and " Fuel" should be included.

The statement of "Kinds" and "Quantities” of Materials and of Products is not required in the case of those mechanical establishments whose materials and productions are of a minor and miscellaneous character, such as carpenters' and blacksmiths' shops, small gun shops, &c.

When the production is all of one kind, it should be reported by kinds and quantities, no matter how small the amount.

Every factory, every mill of considerable size, must be enumerated in this way. To make the returns of “Kinds” and " Quantities” of any value, it is essential that they should conform to a distinct classification, so that the product of all establishments in the same line of business throughout the country can be added together. In the case of every establishment, the TOTAL VALUE of all Materials consumed, and of all Products, alike those specified and those not specified, will be given in the proper columns for Values.

The following tables exhibit the specifications of Materials and Products which it is desirable to have made in the case of certain of the larger industries of the country; also, the necessary forms for reporting the facts relative to power and machinery. So far as possible, enumerators will conform to this classification.
