      I have the honor herewith to refer for your consideration and such action as may be judged proper, a communication from Joel Palmer, Esq. Superintendent of Indian Affairs in Oregon, of the date of the 2d ultimo, in regard to alleged misconduct in office, by Agent Samuel H. Culver, and informing the Department that he has deemed it his duty in consequence to suspend Mr. Culver's "functions as Indian agent, until the will of the President be known." A copy of Superintendent Palmer's letter to Mr. Culver informing him of the suspension and stating the reasons therefor also accompanies the communication referred to.
