Tbat during that period tho Stato has bccn involv

eral ihousand dollars, thcrc can Iio 110 doubt, nud
Ihat tbo lato whig siiperinlendant, is n dpfauller to

That tbo Statu I'rinlerhas rece'ncd from IheTrea
sury soinclbing over $20(10 pcr nnnuin for sevcial
years, a largo iare of wbich has becu paid wilh
out law or right, is also clearly shown. That tlio

llie necpssily for reform, nor is tbern nny less
doubt tbat reform will ncver tnke placo so long us

It is now well kuown tbat tho Stute Trcasiircr for tho
