is authorized to obtain from such person a release of his interest to the United States.

Act April 28, 1828, c. 41, $ 3, 4 Stat. 264. § 6950. (R. S. § 3753.) Releasing property from attachment.

Whenever any property owned or held by the United States, or in which the United States have or claim an interest, shall, in any judicial proceeding under the laws of any State, district, or Territory, be seized, arrested, attached, or held for the security or satisfaction of any claim made against such property, the Secretary of the Treasury, in his discretion, may direct the Solicitor of the Treasury to cause a stipulation to be entered into by the proper district attorney for the discharge of such property from such seizure, arrest, attachment, or proceeding, to the effect that upon such discharge, the person asserting the claim against such property shall become entitled to all the benefits of this and the following section. Nothing herein contained shall, however, be considered as recognizing or conceding any right to enforce by seizure, arrest, attachment, or any judicial process, any claim against any property of the United States, or against any property held, owned, or employed by the United States, or by any Department thereof, for any public use, or as waiving any objection to any proceeding instituted to enforce any such claim.

Act June 11, 1864, c. 117, 13 Stat. 122. § 6951. (R. S. § 3754.) Payment.

In all cases where a stipulation is entered into under the preceding section, and, in consequence thereof, the property is discharged, and final judgment is afterward given in the court of last resort to which the Secretary of the Treasury may deem proper to cause such proceedings to be carried, affirming the claim for the security or satisfaction of which such proceedings have been instituted, and the right of the person asserting the same to enforce it against such property by means of such proceedings, notwithstanding the claims of the United States thereto, such final judgment shall be deemed, to all intents and purposes, a full and final determination of the rights of such person, and shall entitle such person, as against the United States, to such rights as he would have had in case possession of such property had not been changed. Whenever such claim is for the payment of money, and the same is by such judgment found to be due, the presentation of a duly authenticated copy of the record of such judgment and proceedings shall be sufficient evidence to the proper accounting officers for the allowance thereof; and the same shall thereupon be allowed and paid out of any moneys in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated. The amount so to be allowed and paid shall not, however, exceed the value of the interest of the United States in the property in question.

Act June 11, 1864, c. 117, 13 Stat. 122. § 6952. (R. S. $ 3755.) Preservation, sale, etc., of abandoned prop

erty. The Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to make such contracts and provisions as he may deem for the interest of the Government, for

the preservation, sale, or collection of any property, or the proceeds
thereof, which may have been wrecked, abandoned, or become derelict,
being within the jurisdiction of the United States, and which ought to
come to the United States, or of any moneys, dues, and other interests
lately in the possession of or due to the so-called Confederate States,
or their agents, and now belonging to the United States, which are
now withheld or retained by any person, corporation, or municipality
whatever, and which ought to have come into the possession and
custody of, or been collected or received by, the United States; and in
such contracts to allow such compensation to any person giving in-
formation thereof, or who shall actually preserve, collect, surrender, or
pay over the same, as the Secretary of the Treasury may deem just
and reasonable. No costs or claim shall, however, become chargeable
to the United States in so obtaining, preserving, collecting, receiving,
or making available property, debts, dues, or interests, which shall
not be paid from such moneys as shall be realized and received from
the property so collected, under each specific agreement.
