Hon. J. S. Black,
I am directed by the Attorney General to acknowledge the receipt of your note enclosing a memorial of Gen. Nichols and others, of Texas,—and to say, in reply, that the further prosecution of these cases was suspended by the Attorney General some months since, and that no further action can be had until the existing vacancy in the office of U. S. Attorney for that District shall be filled by the President.
Very respectfully, &c.
M. F. Pleasants,
