MILLARD FILLMORE.

Washington, January 4, 1853.

Navy Department, January 4, 1853.

Sir: I have to submit to you a nomination of William L. Nichol, of Tennessee, and John C. Coleman, of Virginia, to be assistant surgeons in the Navy, from the 28th of June, 1852.

These gentlemen were nominated during the last session of the Senate to fill vacancies, but their nominations were not acted on. Other assistant surgeons, who were before the Senate at the same time, were confirmed on the 28th of June, 1852, and were commissioned from that date.

Early in the present session Drs. Nichol and Coleman were renominated and were confirmed by the Senate on the 21st of December, but as no time was mentioned in their nominations from which they should take date as assistant surgeons their commissions, if issued, would have to date from the 21st of December, the day of their confirmation. This would throw them below assistant surgeons who were commissioned in the recess and since confirmed by the Senate, although they passed their examination for admission into the Navy above them anil were nominated previously to them. To correct this a new nomination is submitted, giving to Drs. Nichols and Coleman the date of the assistant surgeons who were before the Senate at the time they were, and who were confirmed and commissioned on the 'Mth of June, 1852. I am, verv respectfully, vour ob't sei^t,

JOHN P. KENNEDY.

The President.

To the Senate of the United States:

I nominate Thomas T. Craven, now a lieutenant, to be a commander in the Navy, from the 16th of December, 1852, to fill a vacancy occasioned by the death of Commander John M. Dale.

Andrew H. Foote, now a lieutenant, to be a commander in the Navy, from the 19th of December, 1852, to fill a vacancy occasioned by the resignation of Commander William L. Howard.
