Hit: I am in receipt of your letter of the
27th, requesting my opinion on the following
points: "Whether the law Imposing a tax on
cotton, and providing for IU collection, ao
restricts the executive authority aa to forbid
the arranging of the cotton etatet Into a
tingle cotton district, for the purpose of col
lecting the tax on cotton, having reference
to the cotton tax only, and without neces
sarily Involving any change of district, which
may be most convenient for the collection of
other taxes." ,
I am clearly of opinion that such a con
solidation of the cotton-growing States at It
described by the terms of the foregoing in
quiry into a tingle collection district, for the
purpose of levying and collecting the duties
imposed by the Internal Revenue laws upon
cotton, cannot lawfully be effected by Exec
utive authority under the existing provisions
of these laws.
The authority conferred upon the Presl
dent by the act of June 30. 1864. section 7.
to alter the respective collection districts, aa
the public Interests may require, enables him
only to moony, irom tune to time, at may be
required, existing arrangements of the sev
eral district designated by him, for the levy
ing and collection of all the duties and
taxes proscribed and imposed by the acts of
Congress relating to internal revenue. By
the original act of July 11, 18M, the Presl.
dent wot empowered simolv to divide re
spectively the States and Territories of tho
United Utatct and the District of Columbia
into convenient collection districts.
Soon after the passage of this act a ques
tion arose at to the authority of the Presi
dent to alter the arrangement of collection
districts mado and established by him in pur
suanco of this provision of law. That ques
tion was carefully considered by my prede
cessor, Attorney General Bates, who gavo
his opinion that the President, when ha
made too original division or tne states into
collection districts, exhausted his power In
tne premises, ims was neia on tne general
principle that where an act of Congress es
tabli"tiing a general system confers on tha
President the authority to do a specific act
for the purpose of perfecting the means by
which the svstcm shall be carried into effect,
tho act of too President, when performed ac
cording to the terms of the statute, hat all
the validity and authority of the statute it
self U. S. Opinion, Bates, A. O., p. 384.
This view of the law having been adopted
by tho Treasury Department, Congress was
applied to for additional legislation confer
ring the authority, which was not contained
in the original act. The seventh section of
tne act oi June au, ieo-j, was accoraingiy en
acted to remedy the particular defect which
was found to exist in the statute of 180.'.
It is too clear to admit of doubt that "col
lection districts," within the meaning of tho
act, are those districts respectively in which
the Internal duties and taxes imposed bylaw
upon all the subjects of taxation are col
lected in tho manner and by the officers
designated in the statute.
These districts cannot be established or
arranged with reference to the duties im
posed on particular subjects. That is not
tho plan upon which the internal rcvenua
laws proceed. Such an arrangement as is
proposed in tte memorials which jou havo
submitted to me could not be carried into
effect with the machinery established by tho
existing law for the collection of internal du
ties. Tho President has no power to appoint a
special collector lor tho tax imposed on tho
particular article of cotton, nor could he
designate any one of the district collectors
as the officer who should proceed through
out the entire cotton territory and collect
tho tax on that article wherever found. The
mischiefs of the present system complained
of by the Chambers of Comincrco of Mobilo
and New Orleans can oply bo remedied by
Congress Tho act of July 13, 1866, to
w hich reference is made by the memorialists,
contains all tho exceptional provisions as to
tho tax on cotton which Congress then
deemed to bo necessary, and those prov is
ions, instead of giving authontr tomalte tho
additional exception now requested, seem to
mo wholly inconsistent with it.

J. B. Ham, Esq , who hot been appointed
by Governor Bullock commissioner to inves

that he hud found a dreadful state of things

the bad v entilation of some of the mills: tha
