XIII. THE CUSTOMS.

The principal officer employed in the collection of the duties on imports and tonnage, is the Collector, to whom the Naval Officer is at once an aid and a check. The Surveyor superintends and directs the inferior officers of the customs; and all three are appointed by the President and Senate.They formerly held their offices for an indefinite period; but, by an act of the 15th May, 1820, their appointment is now limited to four years.

Weighers, gaugers, measurers, and inspectors, are appointed by the Collector, with the approbation of the principal officer of the treasury depart. , ment. For the duties of these several officers, see the act of Congress of the 2d of March, 1799. Public appraisers are authorized by an act of the 20th of April, 1818. Their business is to appraise imported goods subject to duty ad valorem, when they are suspected to have been invoiced below the true value. They are appointed by the President and Senate, and hold their commissions during the pleasure of the President.
