APPENDIX B.

REPORT OF THE TRANSACTIONS OF THE DIVISION OF SPECIAL AGENTS

TREASURY DEPARTMENT, Office of the Secretary, Washington, D. C., November 19, 1877. SIR: I have the honor to submit the following report of the transac. tions of the Division of Special Agents during the past year:

Number of custom-houses inspected, 118.

Reduction in expense of collecting revenue from customsIn rentals.....

$59, 344 00 In compensation of 261 employés..

285, 594 39

Total reduction

344, 938 39 Amount of defalcations of customs-officers ascertained and

reported ..... Of this amount there has been paid into the Treasury

$30, 700 01

4,064 00 Leaving a balance of

26, 636 01 which, it is expected, will be recovered by suit on official bonds. Value of seizures reported by special agents Fines collected....

$129, 071 23 Amount recovered on suits.

2, 800 00 Amount recovered without suit

56, 649 59 Increased duties collected ....

12, 010 38

147, 482 85 Total

348, 014 05

Number of agents employed, 20.
Per-diem compensation.
Traveling expenses...

$57, 422 00 19,447 81

Total cost of the special-agents' service..

76, 869 81 Number of arrests made on information of special agents, 14.

Two steamships bave been libeled at the port of New York for smuggling.

It has been found impossible, with the number of special agents now allowed by law, to perform all the varied duties devolving upon this branch of the service, and it bas been necessary to use as auxiliaries a number of inspectors of customs in several districts in which investigations have been made. These officers, being subordinate to the collectors and surveyors of customs in the districts to which they belong, cannot be expected to act with the same independence and effectiveness as special agents appointed by and employed under the direction of the Secretary of the Treasury. An increase in the number of special agents is therefore respectfully recommended. Very respectfully,

A. K. TINGLE.

Supervising Special Agent. Hon. JOHN SHERMAN,

Secretary of the Treasury.
