( Ireland.)— SEVENTH REPORT or THE COMMISSIONERS. ( Appx. No. 39. The Examination of Mr. JACOB WEST; taken on Oath, the 3d and 22d of December 1807. t This Examinant saith, That he is Deputy Assay Master and Touch Warden ; that there is no Office in Ireland for the assaying and touching of Wrought Plate, except that in Dublin. When Examinant was appointed Deputy Affay Mafter, he was sworn before the Corporation of Goldsmiths, to the due and faithful execution of the duties of his Office; but he has not taken the oath either before the Commissioners of the Revenue or before a Magistrate. When Plate is brought to be. allayed and touched, it is accompanied by a note from the Manufacturer, stating the particulars of the articles 10 be assayed, and the gross weight; these notes are filed by him, and kept in the Office. An allowance of one- fixth is made for waste in the finishing of Plate, and the Duty is charged on the netc weight; the Assay Master gives printed receipts for the Duty, cut out of a book, the duplicates of which remain in it. Examinant epeers in a book the particulars of every piece of Plate assayed, viz. the Manufac- turer's name, the grofs weight, the nett weight, and the amount of the Duty. The Duty received is by the Affay Mafter paid weekly to the ColleCtor of Excise for the diftriCt of Dublin, and his receipts handed over to the Master of the Goldsmiths Company. The Corporation make quarterly Returns to the Commissioners of Excise, of the Duty received during the quarter; this Return is drawn out and signed, as well by Examinant as by the Mafter of the Corporation. This Examinant's books are lodged quarterly with the Corporation. He is of opinion, that it would be right that he should visit the different shops, to search for untouched Plate exposed to sale, and be accompanied by an Officer of Excise, for the purpose of seizing it; such however has never yet been the praCtice. Examinant receives from Government a falary of 70. per annum, in his capacity of Touch Warden. He, as well as the Assay Master, is prohibited from carrying on the business of a Silverfmith, to which both mult have been brought up. Jacob West. J. S. Rcchfort, Fredk Geale, Robert Alexander.
