- arssActp PROM PRESIDENT GRANT.
The folloWing - mealage was sent- to the
Senate to-day by President Grant:
To the -Senate of the thiited States-.
Since the nomination and copfirmaticM
of Alexander T. Stewart to the office of
Secretary of the Treasury, I find that' , the
eighth section of the act of-Coiigkessop
proved September 2. 1789, provides as
"And be it f wither. enacted; That no per
son appointed to any.office instituted by
. Ithis act shall , directly or indirectly be
- 1 ooncerned or interested in carrying on
the business of: trade or commerce; or
owner in whole or part of any sea vessel,
or purchase, by himself, or another in
trust for him, any , public lands or Other
public property, or be 'concerned in the
purchase or diaposal of any publje secu
of any State, or of the United
Statee, or take or gain for negotiating or
transacting any business in the-rdepart
ment, other than what shatl be allowed by
Itrw - \, and if any person shall offend against
any of the prphibitions of this act, he
shall be deemed guilty of a high misde
meanor, and forfeit to the United States
the penalty of three thousand dollars,
and shall upon °envied n be removed
office and 'forever hereafter be in
capable of holding 'anyoffice underthe
United States:, provided that if any per
eon not irpablie,prositout r„shall give in
formation of any such o ence on which a
prosecution and conviction shall be had,
one-half of the aforesaid penalty of three
thousand dollars, when recovered, shall
be for the use of such person giving the
information." . ..-,
In view of these provisions, and the
fact that Mr. Stewarthas been unani
mously confirmed b y the Senate. I
would ask that he be exempted by joint
resolution of the two Houses of Congress
from:the operation of the same.
