and the conduct of the measures referred to are
plsced, by order of the Secretary, under the imme
diate supervision of the undersigned, to whom all
communications relating thereto, or to the
offences indicated, should bi addressed. Liberal
rewards have already been paid to several parties
who have aided in the apprehension ef counter
feiters.
It is hoped that the stimulus thus offered, added
to the interest which all good citizens must feel in
the suppression of crimes tending to impair the
credit of the national securities, and thus embar
rass all business operations, will induce the earn
est co operation of all capable of affording any aid
in the efforts being made by the Department for
the attainment of that desirable end. It is espec
ially urged that all persons having a knowledge of
facts important to be known by the Department,
concerning such offences, will communicate them
folly and promptly to the undersigned.
Publishers of newspapers throughout the coun
try will render essential service to the Govern
ment and the peblic by giving conspicuous publi

incapable of curing, filch his pecuniary substance,
