Duties.] ON F E E S , G R A T U I T I E S , 279 & c. We have already ftated, that the Solicitor of Excife has not furnifhed any Account of Law Cofts incurred in that Department fince his appoint- ment in 1802, confcqucntly, whatever may be due to him on that ac- count, will be an addition to the Law Charges of thofe years. Such Law proceedings relating to the Revenue, as required to be car- ried on in the Country, are ufually conducted by local Agents appointed by the refpe6tive Boards.
