the first auditor of the department, of a
letter from the customs collector at De

classification of frogs (uot ahv e ) The de

the question has never been decid

gentleman from Rochester it was
once suggested that such frogs were
dutiable at 35 per cent ad valorem as
"prepared meats " But this suucestiou
appears to be untenable, as it is under
stood that the frogs are not prepared in
an manner, but are merely dead frogs

are unprov ided for in the act of March 3.
