Florence–T. Bigelow LAWRENCE, Consul General.

APRIL 30, 1863. I have the honor to enclose herewith the return of fees received at this consulate general during the last quarter, amounting to $111.

The value of goods exported to the United States from the city of Florence and its vicinity during that period amounts, it will be seen, to 421,911.36 francs.

In my despatch (No. 1) of January 6 I stated that I had been informed by the attorney general of this province that the oath administered in the verification of invoices, whether taken before a consular officer or local magistraté, would not, in case the invoice proved to be false, render the offender liable to prosecution for perjury. As, however, any person certifying an invoice to be veritable which proved to be false, would be answerable to a prosecution for fraud, and as an additional barrier would thus be created against the latter, he recommended me to continue to administer the oath.

Upon this recommendation I continued to administer the oath in the uspal manner until the receipt, on the 28th February, of your despatch of February 4, enclosing circular No. 29. Thereupon I instituted a more careful investigation, taking the opinions of two of the most eminent counsellors of the province

. These gentlemen, after carefully examining the law, assured me, though consular officers could not adıninister the oath to Italian subjects, yet notaries public were empowered so to do, and that an oath to an invoice proving to be false, taken before the latter class of officers, would most undoubtedly subject the offender to a prosecution and conviction for perjury. Of the entire correctness of the legal opinion thus given I became fully convinced by still further inquiry.

The following are among the principal articles of export, with their respective values, during the year 1859 :

Francs. Metals .....

2, 114, 162 Drugs, dyes, and chemicals

1, 501, 354 Mercury, hardware, and ragg
