Solichoh's Orricc, Oct. ?. 1364.{
Congress, by an act passed at It* last nesrion
placed a considerable sum of money atthe di*po-il
of the Secretary of the Treasury, to be employed
in the prosecution of measures for tne detection
and punishment of p?rsous engaged iu counter
feiting Treasury notes, fractional currency, and
otber securities of the United S'ates. This fund
is devoted to the pay .nent ? f rewards to detectives
and others through whose instrumentality oflen
ders are brought to justice; and its administration
and the conduct of tbe measures referred to are
placed, by ? rder of the Secretary, under the imme
diate supervision of tbe undersigned. to whom all
communications relating thereto, or to the
offences indicated, should be addressed. Liberal
rewards have already been paid f> several parties
who have aided in iho apprehension cf counter
/?iter*.
It is hoped that the stimulus thus offered, added
to the interest winch all good citizens must feel in
the suppression of crimes tending to impair the
credit of the national securities, and tl us embar
rass ad business operations, will induce the earn
est co operation of all capable ct" atlording %n\ a'J
in the efforts being ma e by the Department for
the attainment of that desirable ead. Itisespec
tally urged that all persons having aknow|ede--< f
facts important to be known_ by the Depart'near,
concerning such r.ffenees, will communicate thei.i
fully and promptly t<? the undersigned.
