( Ireland.)— Eighth REPORT or THE COMMISSIONERS [ Exciie fuch part as re, mains to be delivered, thereby enabling him to receive payment antecedent to the delivery of the articles. The danger attend- ing luch irregularity is too obvious to require comment; but when. we find it admitted, that no account is taken from which it can be fhewn what part has been adually received, what part is undelivered, or how much at any time ought to remain 011 hand, we cannot refrain from ex- preili. ng our furprize and concern that fo heavy an item of expenditure, fliould not have become an objed of greater lblici. tude with thofe who are entrufted to controul it. We would not be thought to infinuate, that anv unfair advantage had been taken of the inattention that has pre- J 0 1 vailed with regard to this branch of expence ; it cannot however be • s* difputed, that while the prefent fyftem of concluding the buiinefs of the Appendix, N° 63 Office of Stationary Stores ( hall continue, it will afford an opening for milcondud, to which the Public ought not to be expofed. In addition to thefe oblervations on the condud of this Office, we remark that the Stationer, who iupplies alio the Printing, has been permitted to retain in his hands fuch part of the Stationary as is intended for this purpofe, while 110 flep has been taken to afcertain that the delivery of printed Stationary correfpotided with the quantity l'o retained. In order to regu- late this Office, io as to guard againft the abufes to which it has hitherto 7 D tjp* • been expofed, the Clerk of the Stationary Stores ffiould be required to charge himfelf with every Article of Stationary received, and take credit for all Deliveries, and the whole Account be lb conducted as to { hew, when balanced, the quantity of each Article which ought to be in ftore-; the Stock { hould likewilb be occafionallv examined, not only by the Clerk of the Stores, but by fome liiperior Officer, to afcertain that its adual amount correfponded with the feveral Entries thereof in the Books. All Paper alio delivered to the Printer fliould be debited to his Account, and credit given for all printed Paper received, lo as to afcertain that the whole of fuch Deliveries were printed, or duly accounted for. THE magnitude of the expenditure of this Department, under the head of " Law Charges;" its rapid and confiderable encreafe fince 1804, when our enquiries commenced, could not fail to attrad our particular notice. To give a clear view of the arrangements under which this expenditure is concluded, it will be necefiary to include in our details the Law Charges of theCuftoms, as well on account of fome of the princi- pal Law Officers being common to both Departments, as that many of the obfervations we { hall have occalion to make will be found to apply equally to both. The annual Difburfements of each Department, under the head of " Law Charges," in the five years, ending 5th January 1808, independent of the Salaries of the Law Officers, appear to have been as follows: Not with
