printed.

DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,

January 23, 1858. Sır: In the estimates of this department, submitted to you with my letter of the 7th of November last, was an item $220,000 “ for surveying the public lands and private land claims in California, including office expenses incident to the survey of claims, and to be disbursed at the rates prescribed by law for the different kinds of work, being the amount of surveying liabilities incurred by the surveyor general during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1857, over and above that authorized under the appropriation of $50,000 for that period.”—(See printed estimates, pages 119 and 150.) As this item appears not to have been included in the estimates communicated by you to Congress at the opening of the present session, I have the honor now to invite your attention thereto, and to request that the oversight may be corrected. Very respectfully,

J. THOMPSON, Secretary. Hon. HOWELL COBB,

Secretary of the Treasury.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT,

January 25, 1858. SIR: I have the honor to enclose herewith a letter from Hon. Jacob Thompson, the Secretary of the Interior, respecting an item of $220,000, which it is necessary should be inserted in the regular deficiency bill.

It was not included in the estimates submitted by me to Congress at the opening of the present session, for the reason that it did not belong to the expenses proper of the fiscal year ending June 30, 1858, but had been already expended on account of an appropriation made by Congress for the preceding fiscal year. Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

HOWELL COBB,

Secretary of the Treasury. Hon. JAMES L. ORR,

Speaker of the House of Representatives.
