The Examination of THOMAS KNOX MAGEF., Efquire, Infpedor General of Excife ; taken on Oath, the 19th of November 1806. This Examinant fatth, That he is an Infpedor General of Excife ; that he was about Five Months in Charge of the R edifying Diflilleries and Malt- houfes in the City of Cork. There were, during that Time, 1 o R edifying and 6 Grofs Diflilleries in that Diftrid : the former ufed an aggregate of about 1,000 Gallons of Still, and the latter of about 5,000. In general, the Redifying Diftilleries were fituated very near to the Grofs Diftilleries. At the Time Examinant took Charge of the Redifying Diftilleries, he underftood that the Redifiers ufed to take the full Allowance of 50 per Cent, of Water, but that after his coming into Charge, they never were allowed a Credit for any Water that was not mixed in his own Pretence ; and he thinks that the Quantity ofWater fo mixed, did not amount to One per Cent, during the whole of the Time he was in Charge.
