SWAMP LANDS.

WHEREAS in section 2, of the act of Congress, approved March 2, 1855, (see vol. 10 U. S. Statutes at large, p. 634); which act was amendatory to the act approved September 28, 1850, entitled “An act to enable the state of Arkansas and other states to reclaim the swamp lands within their limits,” it was provided that upon due proof of the agent of the state or states, before the commissioner of the general land office, that any lands purchased subsequent to the 28th of September, 1850, were swamp lands, within the meaning of the swamp land act of September 28, 1850, the purchase money should be paid over to the state or states, and where the lands have been located by warrants or scrip the said state or states should be authorized to locate a quantity of like amount upon any portion of the public lands subject to entry at $1 25 per acre or less, and patents shall issue therefor and upon the terms and conditions enumerated in the act aforesaid; and whereas by act of the legislature of the state of Illinois, approved June 22, 1852, section 1, it was provided “That all the swamp and overflowed lands granted to the state of Illinois by the act of Congress entitled 'An act to enable the state of Arkansas and other states to reclaim the swamp lands within their limits,' approved September 28, 1850, be and the same are hereby granted to the counties respectively in which the same may lie or be situated, etc.;" and whereas the said grant of the state of Illinois to the several counties is to a large extent inoperative on account of the rules and decisions of the commissioner of the general land office under which none of the counties have been thus far able to locate the scrip to which they are entitled; therefore,

Be it resolved, (the Senate and the House concurring therein), That the Congress of the United States be requested, by resolution or otherwise, to instruct the commissioner of the general land office to authorize the location of said scrip issued and to be issued under said act of March 2, 1855, upon any government land subject to entry at $1 25 per acre, lying in any of the states or territories of the United States.

Resolved, That the governor of this state be authorized to appoint a state agent, whose duties it shall be to look after the general interests of the state of Illinois growing out of the swamp land act of September 28, 1850, and the amendments thereto: Provided, this state agent so appointed, shall not in any manner interfere with or annul any bargain, contract or agency made by any county in said state with any person or persons for the purpose of protecting the interests of the said county under the said swamp land act: And, provided, that said state agent so appointed shall make no charge against the state of Illinois for any services he may render under this resolution.
