The correct keeping of he Officers stock- books can only be insured by the frequent inspection EShIchi from the state ofthose books' w- lWto—- * By the detail which we have given of the Gangers duty, it appears that n any error is discovered in the charge against the Maltster af'er the voucher has been returned, the Gauger usually makes an allowance on that account m the following month's charge. This practice we consider as highly irregular ; no abatement of charge after the voucher has been re- turned to the proper Officer should be permitted, unless by the board's order, after a regular application from the trader, and an investigation of his claim. The Law requires all Maltsters, who shall be desirous to discontinue working, to give notice in writing of their intention so to discontinue to the Collector of the district, and to the Surveyor and Gauger in charge of their Malthouses, and also to the Commissioners of Excise in case of dis- continuance for the remainder of the year. As few of the Maltsters licenced in the City of Dublin for the year end- ing the 29th September 1806, appear to have completed the charge of 64 barrels per annum, and many instances of discontinuance had occurred, we required all notices of discontinuance that had been served by Maltsters on the Collector of the District of the City of D ublin in the last year to be trans- mitted to us, and in return have received only one notice served in the month of December 1806, accompanied by a letter from the Collector, stating that Appendix, No. tgi no other notice had been served on him in the year 1806 ; and to a like requisition to the Commissioners of Excise, have received a return, by Appendix, No. 30. which it appears that no notices of discontinuance for the district of Dub- lin had been served upon them in that year. For the present year, how- Appendix, No. 17. ever, several notices appear to have been served, but until lately, without any regard to the distinction between discontinuances for apart, or discon- tinuances for the remainder of the year, so that the Officers were left to judge of the intended discontinuance solely from the Time intervening between the service of the notice and the day mentioned therein, fourteen days notice being required previous to any discontinuance for the remainder of a year, and six days previous to any discontinuance for a shorter period. No entries of these notices are ever made in the stock- books, nor could we find that they came to the knowledge of the Examiner of Gaugers books by any regular course of communication ; he stated to us, however, that the Commissioners of Excise, as he believed, transmit to him all such Appendix, No. 27. notices as are served on them, and that on his receiving them they are entered in a book kept in his office. The notices to discontinue working for part of a year, are not, however, required to be served on the Com- missioners ; it is evident, therefore, that of these the Examiner can have no such information from them, nor do any steps appear to have been taken by the Board, or any Officer whatever, to cause those on whom the notices are, or should be served, to make the Examiner acquainted with Appendbf, Np. ^ them.
