As this bill, proposes to constitute the pro
bntu court,' I' venture to say,' that in fifty
counties of the State, the salary ol-the conn
iv clerk will be reduced far below a reason
able compensation, far below what will pro
cure the services ol a Competent - man.
There are a few counties, such as Hamilton,
Montgomery,. Knox, and Belmont, where,
as iheir rrpresentaiivcs state, the clerk a of
fice is worih from twenty-five hundred- to
three thousand dollars per annum, in which

Take for example the coumv of Meigs,
which I liave tile litmor 'to represent, I have
taken some truuble to procure a statement
of the salury of the clerk of this county,
and nave reason to think my inlormatlon
correct, and I find he receives at most, five
hundred dollars per annum, a sum barely
s. flicient to compensate him, of . this sum
sevejiiy-five dollars, or about that, is derived
from probate business, this turn by the con
siltuiton musbe given' to the probate judce,
I. J .. .1. L I ... r . , J
which wouiu riunce nis salary to tour nup
dred ank thirty dollars, to this sum, hotfev
er, ho would submit in view of the increa
sing population and wealth of the county.
consequently we would have an efficient
officer. Bui, sir, by' this bilK the issuinc of
marriage lincenses, and the emoluments
derived therefrom, are to.be .surrendered 10
this court also. . During the. last year our
clerk received f 140 of bis small pittance,
irom this source; take this Irom 450 10
which the transfer of the probate business
reduces his salary and he has fx90 remain
ing. ' But It does rot "stop here, it proposes
to transfer a large 'additional amount of bu

which the clerkship would suffer a further
