The two vacant offices are Surveyor of the port of Pittsburgh    Do   do   of Cincinnati The first may be filled by enquiring from Hoge & Smith of Pennsa.—It is in Smith’s district, but much nearer to Hoge.

Observations on foreign gold Congress omitted last year to renew the temporary laws by which, so much of the general act respecting foreign coins, as declares that no foreign gold or silver coin (spanish dollars excepted) shall be current after the mint shall have been in operation a certain time, had from time to time been suspended.

I return the Charleston recommendations. In a conversation with General Sumpter respecting the qualifications of the four persons named, it appeared to me that he considered Simeon Theus and Paul Hamilton as the best qualified, and that it was believed that neither Mr Hamilton nor Mr Freneau would accept.
