Benj. F. C. Loughridge, Esq.
The President has referred to me your letter to him of the 22d ultimo, applying for an appointment as U.S. Commissioner for the Northern District of Georgia.
In reply I have only to say that such appointments are not made by the President, but by the U.S. Courts.
A. T. Akerman,
