He has submitted ; to sacrifices and relinquished in great part j his own salary to meet the necessary' ex an penses of his office. Under these circum 1 stances and with relief deferred beyond the limits of ordinary patience, he resigns his commission and gives up an office, the coin pensation of which in no respect corres ponds to the labors and responsibilities im posed. Mr. Smith has proved himself a 4 capable and popular officer. He has dis charged his duties with satisfaction to the public and fidelity to the Government.
