-House of tepaksex ratives, 14th July, 1832. DeAR Sin: Your letter of the 6 want! . have read, and duly considered its contests. You rightly suppose that no report is contem, plated by the “special committee on the sub. ject of live oak. I felt some hesitation in an swering your enquiries. The delay of the re. port alluded to did not arise from any he lost doubt or difficulty about the questions you sk, but from the determination of the committee to collect all the facts in their power relative to the general question, and the occurrence ofen. grossing public questions. But as the report

has been for some time expected, and I have not lately made any move in it, I demo proper in this manner to tate: That the document referred to in your letter was not suppressed, but was by you, (as Secretary of the Navy,) communicated to the Naval Committee, as appears by the report of the present Sectory, 2dly. There is no ground disclosed by the documents and evidence for the slightest sus. picion, that you, while Sect tary of the Navy, on the ground of favoritism, or any other ground, improperly increased the allowances or the wages of live oak agents. In fic, these wages were not increased at al. In answer to your last qu stun, I will copy the words of the report of the Naval Committee of the 25th, February, 1831, which bear directly on the point; they are as follows: “The cummittee are of opinion, that the examinations of the pub. lic, and other lands, to ascertain the quantity and quality of the live oak, should be proseco ted with increased industry and adequale fro" Very respectfully, your obediets rol, THOS. T. BOULDIN, The Hon. John BRAxch.
