( Ireland.)— FIFTH REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONERS [ Appendix, for every Ten Gallons of the Still Content; Thefe Stills are required by Law to be charged in thePrefence of the Gauger, who fhould lock on the Head, and, when the Stiil is filent, the Furnace Door and Difcharge Cock. The Still ought not to be unlocked by the Gauger, until Notice is ferved on the Surveyor. This is the Practice of Dublin. The Officer keeps an Account of the Rectifiers Stock of Spi- rits, and none that are liable to Permits ( hould be permitted to come into, or go out of the Rectifying Diftillery, without the proper Permits. It is the Duty of Exami- nant to fee that the inferior Officers in Charge of this Department do their Duty ; it is his Duty alfo to meafure and gauge the Stills, and return upon Oath to the Board the Contents and Dimenfions thereof; and in general, though not required fo to do, he fwears the Rectifier or his Clerk, as to the Quantity and Identity of the Spirits received under Permiis. Upon gauging the Stills, he has received a Fee of Two Guineas for every Still under One hundred Gallons, and Three Guineas for all Stills above One hundred Gallons ; this Fee he has for feveral Years given to the Surveyor for his Affiduity. He does not, either diredtly or indiredtly, receive any other Fee or Gratuity whatfoever, except occafional Rewards from the Com- imffioners of the Revenue. He thinks that Frauds are frequently committed by Rectifying Diftillers, in working their Stills as Grofs Diftillers, which he believes is generally done at Night. He is of Opinion, that Redtifiers fhould not be allowed to ufe Stills of a lefs Content than Two hundred Gallons, as fmall Stills are fet up at fo eafy an Expence, and the Bufinefs in Confequence frequently put into the Hands of a very low Defcription of Perfons. He is alfo of Opinion, that the Redtifier ( hould be obliged to enter into Bond, with Two fufficient Securities, in the Amount of Five hundred Pounds, conditioned that the Rectifier is not, or will not, during the Time of his Licence as a ReCtifier, be concerned in any Grofs Diftillery, or ufe the Still to be licenfed as a Grofs Diftiller ; that no Grofs Di- ftiller has or fhall have any Share direCtly or indiredtly, in the Still required to be licenfed, and that he will not ufe, keep, or receive any Spirits without having obtained a legal Permit for the fame ; and that he will not, diredtly or indiredtly, commit any Fraud whatever on the Revenue in the Courfe of his Bufinefs of recti- fying.
