Dec. 6, 1871.

Benj. F. C. Loughridge, Esq.

Dalton, Ga.


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.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
