To the Honourable The KNIGHTS, CITIZENS, and BURGESSES, in- Parliament aflembled. The Eighth REPORT of the Commiffioners appointed to enquire into the Fees, Gratuities, Perquifites, and Emoluments, which are or have been lately received in certain Public Offices in Ireland; and alfo, to examine into any Abuses- which may exift in the fame,; and into the . prefent Mode of receiving, collecting, iffuing and accounting for Public Money in Ireland. HAVING the* ' n in our preceding Reports, the manner in which the feveral Duties of Excife are afcertained and brought to charge again ft the Trader, we fhall proceed to defcribe the mode of ACCOUNTING for thefe Duties When colle6ted, and to ltate the Expen- diture of the Excife Department under the refpeftive Heads of ESTABLISHMENT and INCIDENT, or CONTINGENT EXPENCES.

We are aware, that by reference to the Office of the Examiner of Surveyors and Gaugers Books, fuch practices might be detected, and we are informed, that under an order lately iffued, the Stock Books are from time to time t& ken by the examining Clerks of that Office to the Office of the Ibid, .
