In my statement of 4th August, Josiah W. Seaver, Esq. collector, was overcredited 100 dollars on account of direct tax of 1816, which I have corrected in this statement. The credit should have been 1330 instead of 1430 dollars.

Bank of Pennsylvania, September 16, 1817.

SIR: I have received your favor of the 13th inst. and, agreeably to your request, have examined the books of the Bank in relation to the two entries mentioned in your letter.

The receiving Teller informs me, that his impressions are, that the de

site made by Lt. W. R. Duncan, to the credit of the Treasurer of the {. States, on the 25th of July, 1816, of $875, was a balance of moneys placed in his hands for recruiting purposes, which, on the conds. sion of the war, he, with the other recruiting officers, was ordered to it posite in this Bank, and to forward a certificate for the amount to the Wr Department.

The Teller, on examining the account of cash received on the São September, 1816, cannot discover any circumstances relating to the deposite of $442 98 to the credit of the Treasurer of the United States other than that it was deposited by B. Morgan, and a certificate given him that he had deposited this sum to the credit of the Treasurer of the Unit. ed States. Probably this certificate may have been sent either to the War or Navy Departments.

I am, Sir, with much respect,
Your obedient servant,
E. CHAUNCEY, Cashier.

Edwann Jones, Esq.
Treasury Department, City of Washington.

New York, September 29, 1817.

SIR: By the enclosed copies of letters from Mr. Dallas, you will observe that he grants that it is proper “that some compensation should be made," and that it should be “a reasonable compensation.” To those who are in any way acquainted with the amount of Treasury notes received, the time employed, and the labor attending their receipt, and the necessary care and responsibility attending the whole, would not, I am confident, be of opinion that the sum of $2,404 50, charged by me, was more than a very moderate and reasonable compensation.

I annex the items, contained in my account, with the addition of Trea. sury notes sold for the United States in the year 1813, which, had they have been sold through a broker, would have cost more than the whole of my charge; because they were filled up, registered, duplicate copies of the register furnished, endorsed, and sold by me, a business that no broker would have done for one-fourth of one per cent.

I am, very respectfully, Your most obedient servant, S. FLEWELLING, M. L. Davis, Esq.

Bank of New Brunswick, Sept. 30, 1817.

SIR: I have received your letter of July 8, 1817, informing me that you hold a o: from this bank, for $ 1,200, deposited by Aaron Hassert, collector of the customs, at Perth Amboy, on the 1st August, 1816, As I have nothing in the bank to prove the %. (not having noted that such a receipt was given, on my register,) I have requested Mr. Hassert to let me see the duplicate in his possession. This he promised to do, and, as soon as his promise has been performed, which I expect will be in a few days, a supplementary return, in which it will appear, shall be forwarded. I am, sir, with the highest respect, Your most obedient servant, C. W. DUNHAM, Cashier.

The Hon. W. H. CRAwromp.

Roger Williams' Bank, Providence, Oct. 1, 1817.

SIR: In compliance with your letter of the 26th ultimo, I have the honor herewith to transmit an abstract of funded debt, purchased on public account, under your instructions of June 11th, with the necessary vouchers. By this statement, it appears that the amount of cash advanced by the Roger Williams’ Bank, is $4,053 37, and my commissions $ 10 13. r. Ellery, the Commissioner of Loans, informs me, that he forwarded to your department, on the 16th ult. certificates of transfer for this stock, in the name of Thomas T. Tucker, Treasurer of the United States. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, sir, Your most obedient servant, N. WATERMAN, jr. late Cashier. WM. H. CRAwronn, Esq. P. S. Please address Nathaniel Smith, Esq. Cashier Roger Williams’ Bank.

Merchants’ Bank, Salem, Oct. 6, 1817.

Sta: From the 4th regulation, contained in your circular letter of the 29th of April last, we inferred that the public money in this bank, although standing “to the credit of the Bank of the United States, for the use of the Treasury of the United States,” was to be subject to the drafts of the Treasurer of the United States only; but, as the cashier of the bank of the United States has lately drawn upon us, it would seem that the same fund is subject both to the drafts of the Treasurer and the cashier.

If this is the understanding at the Treasury, I will thank you to inform me of it by return of mail, and to state expressly that I am authorized to pay the drafts of the cashier of the Bank of the United States.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
J. W. TREADWELL, Cashier.

Hon. WM. H. Cn Awronn,
Secretary of the Treasury, Washington.

Office of the Virginia Bank, Petersburgh, Oct. 7, 1817.

SIR: I have this day been presented with a draft of $150,000, drawn upon this bank by the cashier of the Bank of the United States, designating the fund to be that which is held for the use of the Treasury thereof. Not doubting but that the transaction has been authorized by the Treasury Department, the draft has been duly honored; yet, as it is not strictly in conformity with your communications of the 29th April and 18th June last, I have deemed it correct to notify you of the transaction, and to inquire if any change in the arrangements has been made subsequent to the date referred to.

I am, very respectfully,
Your most obedient servant,
JOHN WILDER, Cashier.

Hon. WM. H. CRAwronn,
Secretary of the Treasury.

New Haven Bank, JNew Haven, Oct. 10, 1817.

SIR: Enclosed are three certificates of stock purchased for the United States, amounting to $251 47.

Is the money deposited in this Bank to the credit of the Bank of the United States, for the use of the Treasury of the United States, subject to the draft of the Cashier of that Bank, or to the draft of the Treasurer only? g

I am, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
H. R. PYNCHON, Cashier.

The Hon. WM. H. CRAwforn,
Secretary of the Treasury.

Bank of Pennsylvania, Oct. 14, 1817.

HoN’d SIR: As requested in your letter of the 1st of August, I have made out, and now inclose, a statement of the account of the Commissioner of Loans for the state of Pennsylvania, for dividends on public stock, with this Bank, up to the 1st instant. From this statement it appears, that there is due to this Bank $26,626 71*, for this sum advanced to the United States on this account. I have also made out, and now inclose, a statement of the account of the Commissioner of Loans for the state of Pennsylvania, with this Bank, for the payment of Treasury notes; by which it appears, that the balance to the credit of this account, on the 1st instant, was $235,590 80. With great respect, I am, sir, Your obedient servant, - E. CHAUNCEY, Cashier. The Hon. WM. H. CRAwronn,

Secretary of the Treasury, City of Washington.

Mechanics' Bank, Baltimore, Oct. 17, 1817.

SIR: On the 28th day of last April, this institution sold to James Wm. M’Culloh, Cashier, fifty thousand dollars United States’ 6 per cent stock, standing on the books of Maryland, to its credit.

A power of attorney to transfer the stock, and to collect the dividends, until transferred, was duly executed and delivered, but the certificates could not then be found.

Diligent search has since been made, but without success.

As we have every reason to believe that they are destroyed, or so mislaid as to defy research, I have to ask the favor of a warrant to issue new certificates, that a transfer may be made of this stock by Mr. M'Culloh, to the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund.

I annex a memorandum of the lost certificates attested by the acting Commissioner of Loans.

Although the capital of this institution is large, and the amount of lost certificates comparatively small, still, if thought necessary, other than its corporate security will be cheerfully given.

I have the honor to be, most respectfully,
Your obedient. humble servant,
JAMES MOSHER, President,

The Hon. WM. H. CRAwforn,

Secretary of the Treasury, Washington. I hereby certify, that five certificates of stock, in the “funded 6 per cent. stock of 1812,” in favor of the Mechanics’ Bank of Baltimore, were issued by the Commissioner of Loans, for the state of Maryland, under date of 31st October, 1812, viz.

* should be 45.
