Sir: I am directed by the Solicitor Gen'l and acting Attorney General to return the copies of the oaths transmitted in your letters of the 13th instant, and to say that the oath of office required of assistants to the Attorneys of the U. S., is that prescribed by the Act of Congress approved July 2d, 1861, (U. S. Stat. Vol 12, p. 502.) This Act, as you will observe, makes it imperative upon all persons appointed to office under the Government to take the oath thereby prescribed. Very respectfully, A. J. Falls, Chief Clerk.
