The Senate have passed a bill of this house of the following title, viz:

The Senate have also passed a bill of the following title, viz:

S. 544. An act to provide for the collection of abandoned property and for the prevention of frauds in the insurrectionary districts within the United States; in which I am directed to ask the concurrence of this house.

Mr. Granger, from the Committee on Enrolled Bills, reported that the committee had examined and found truly enrolled bills of the following titles, viz:

S. 492. An act to amend the laws relating to the Post Office Department; and

S. 511. An act for enrolling and calling out the national forces, and for other purposes.

When

The Speaker signed the same.

Mr. Granger, from the same committee, reported that the committee did this day present to the President of the United States bills of the following titles, viz:

S. 311. An act to amend an act entitled "An act to provide a temporary government for the Territory of Colorado;"

S. 407. An act to fix the terms of the circuit and district courts in the districts of Wisconsin and Iowa;
