Selections from consular correspondence.

[Note.—Most of the consular correspondence, which it is deemed expedient to communicate to Congress, usually accompanies the report of the Secretary of State on the commercial relations of the United States with foreign countries, which is transmitted to Congress agreeably to the provisions of the acts of August 16, 1842, and August 18, 1856, unless any of such correspondence is otherwise specially required to be communicated by either branch of Congress.]
