for their departure within 24 hours, without unlading; upon their failure to comply with which orders, you will proceed to enforce against them the provisions of the Acts last recited.

In case of all British Vessels arriving within our Ports, from any of the aforesaid British Colonial Ports, after the 1st of July, you will forthwith enforce against them the provisions of those Acts.

I have the honour to remain, &c. The Collectors of Customs.

RICHARD RUSH.

Sir,

(2.)The Secretary of the Treasury to the Hon. J. Barney.

Treasury Department, Murch 26th, 1827. Your Letter of the 19th instant was laid before the President, and has received from him every consideration.

You are altogether right in supposing that there exists in the Executive branch of the Government every disposition to mitigate the operation of restrictive measures on innocent and unintentional transgressions of the Law. The Proclamation of the 17th of this month was issued, in necessary compliance with the Act of Congress which directed it to be issued; and the Circular Instructions from this Department which followed the Proclamation, went as far in softening its operation in the first instance, as it was thought the Law would warrant. It follows hence, that your suggestion that the instructions may be modified, in such a manner as to admit into our Ports American property in British Vessels, coming from the interdicted Ports, cannot be acceded to, whatever wishes might exist upon the occasion; the prohibitions of the Act of the 18th of April, 1818, being too broad and unequivocal to justify it. How far American property, so arriving, may or may not become the subject of the remitting power, vested in the proper branch of the Government, after the Penalties of the Law shall have duly attached to it, is a point that can in po case be determined beforehand.

I have the honour to remain, &c. The Hon. John Barney, Baltimore, Md. RICHARD RUSH.

(3.)-Circular to the Collectors of Customs. SIR,

'Treasury Department, 28th April, 1827. By direction of the President, I have to inform you, that the prohibitions of the Act of the 18th of April, 1818, are not considered as extending to Passengers who may arrive on board of British Vessels. Those, therefore, who are bona fide such, may be allowed to land with their baggage, care being taken that this construction of the Act be not abused by a violation of any of its provisions. I am, &c. The Collector of Customs.

RICHARD RUSH.

For the purpose of holding a Treaty, and in order that a friendly understanding may hereafter exist between The United States and the Assinaboip Tribe of Indians, the President of The United States, in pursuance of an Act of Congress, passed the 25th day of May, A. D. 1824, entitled "An Act to enable the President of The United States to hold Treaties with certain Indian Tribes, and for other purposes," has by virtue thereof, appointed two Sub Agents for the purposes expressed in the said Act, with all the powers and privileges thereunto legally appertaining: therefore, I, Peter Wilson, duly appointed one of the said Sub Agents, on the part of The United States, have made and entered into the following Articles, and conditions, with the Undersigned Chiefs and Warriors of the Assinaboin Tribe of Indians, on the part of said Tribe, which, when ratified by the President of The United States, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate thereof, shall be binding on both Parties.
