PROCLAMATIONS.

No. 1.

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA :

A PROCLAMATION.

Whereas, by the first section of an act entitled "An act to authorize the President to accept for citizens of the United States the jurisdiction of certain tribunals in the Ottoman dominions and Egypt, established, or to be established, under the authority of the Sublime Porte and of the government of Egypt," approved March 23, 1874, it was enacted as follows:

“That whenever the President of the United States shall receive satisfactory information that the Ottoman government, or that of Egypt, bas organized other tribunals, on a basis likely to secure to citizens of the United States, in their dominions, the same impartial justice which they now enjoy there under the judicial functions exercised by the minister, consuls, and other functionaries of the United States, pursuant to the act of Congress approved the twenty-second of June, eighteen hundred and sixty, entitled “Au act to carry into effect provisions of the treaties between the United States, China, Persia, and other countries, giving certain judicial powers to ministers and consuls, or other functionaries of the United States in those countries, and for other purposes,' he is hereby authorized to suspend the operations of said acts as to the dominions in which such tribunals may be organized, so far as the jurisdiction of said tribunals may embrace matters now cognizable by the minister, cousuls, or other functionaries of the United States in said dominions, and to notify the government of the Sublime Porte, or that of Egypt, or either of them, that the United States, during such suspension, will, as aforesaid, accept for their citizens the jurisdiction of the tribunals aforesaid over citizens of the United States wbich has heretofore been exercised by the minister, consuls, or other functionaries of the United States."

And whereas satisfactory information has been received by me that the government of Egypt has organized other tribunals on a basis likely to secure to citizens of the United States in the dominions subject to such government the impartial justice which they now enjoy there under the judicial functions exercised by the minister, consuls, or other functionaries of the United States, pursuant to the said act of Congress approved June 22, 1860 :

Now, therefore, I, ULYSSES S. GRANT, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the power and authority conferred upon me by the said act, approved March 23, 1874, do hereby suspend during the pleasure of the President the operation of the said act approved June 22, 1860, as to the said dominions, subject to the government of Egypt in which such tribunals have been organized, so far as the jurisdiction of said tribunals may embrace matters now cognizable by the minister, consuls, or other functionaries of the United States in said dominions, except as to cases actually commenced before the date hereof.

In witness whereof I have bereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the city of Wasbington, this twenty-seventh day of March,

in the year of our Lord one thousand eight bundred and (SEAL.) seventy-six, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundredth.

U. S. GRANT. By the President: HAMILTON Fish,

Secretary of State.

No. 2.

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA:

A PROCLAMATION.

Whereas a joint resolution of the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States was duly approved on the 13th day of March, last, which resolution is as follows:

Be it resolved by the Senate and House of Representatires of the United States of America in Congress assembled, Tbat it be, and is hereby, re. commended by the Senate and House of Representatives to the people of the sereral States that they assemble in their several counties or towns on the approaching Centennial Anniversary of our National Independence, and that they cause to have delivered on such day an historical sketch of said county or town from its formation, and that a copy of said sketch may be tiled, in print or manuscript, in the clerk's office of said county, and an additional copy, in print or manuscript, be filed in the office of the Librarian of Congress, to the intent that a complete record may thus be obtained of the progress of our institutions during the first centennial of their existence;"

And whereas it is deemed proper that such recommendation should be brought to the notice and knowledge of the people of the United States :

Now, therefore, I, ULYSSES S. GRANT, President of the United States, do hereby declare and make kuown the same, in the hope that the object of such resolution may meet the approval of the people of the United States, and that proper steps may be taken to carry the same into effect. Given under my hand at the city of Washington, the twenty-fifth day

of May, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred (SEAL.] and seventy-six, and of the Independence of the United States the one hundredth.

U. S. GRANT. By the President: HAMILTON FISH,
