close investigation of this claim, is to be found in the records of the General Government, and it must require much labour and research to exhibit in a favourable aspect so antiquated a demand. Your committee therefore recommend the adoption of the following resolution :

Resolved, That his Excellency the Governor be authorized to employ some fit and proper agent to prosecute, before the General Government, the claim of the State of Georgia against the United States for services rendered and moneys paid by the State during the Revolutionary War; and that his Excellency the Governor be authorized to stipulate with the said agent, that he shall receive a sum not exceeding ten per cent. on the amount received, as a full compensation for his services.

Read and agreed to, 19th Dec. 1834.

The Joint Committee on Banks report, That they have made full

and satisfactory examination of the situation of the Central Bank of Georgia. Every thing evidences to the ?

Committee that said Bank is managed with the ability which has characterized the institution from its establishment, and they accord to the Directors and officers of the Bank unqualified approbation for their able and faithful administration of its affairs.

The circulation of the Bank amounts to $226,246, to meet which, it has in specie $132, 134, and in bills of the Bank of the United States and local banks, $124,227.

Your Committee have observed with regret the great want of punctuality in some of the debtors of the Bank, and that more than $200,000 of discounted paper is lying unattended to; and your Committee learn from the directors that it may be beyond the power of the bank to make its accustomed annual distribution among the counties of this State, unless these papers be renewed, and the reductions due on the same paid. To compel the parties to attend to their notes, and to ensure punctuality hereafter, your Committee earnestly recommend the adoption of the following resolution

Resolved, That the President and Directors of the Central Bank be, and they are hereby authorized to place in suit any note or bill of exchange which shall lie unattended to for the space of three months after the same shall become due and payable, unless satisfactory reasons be assigned to said board of directors for neglect to renew or pay such papers. Read and agreed to, Dec. 20th, 1834.

Whereas, it appears that the county of Tatnall stands charged with having purchased at the sales of confiscated property in 1810, to the amount of five hundred and four dollars seventy and a half cents, and it further appearing, that

the General Assembly at its annual session in the year 1825, upon

the affidavit of Daniel Brinson, formerly a representative from said county, and a letter of Col. Hugh Montgomery, adopted a resolution in which, among other things it was resolved, that the county of Tatnall was not concerned or interested in the purchase of confiscated property in the year 1810; and the treasurer was instructed to correct the charge against the county of Tatnall for the amount of five hundred and four dollars seventy and one half cents, and that the county of Tatnall was declared to be entitled to her full share of the funds heretofore set apart for the use of county Academies; and whereas it appears that said charge against the county of Tatnall has never been corrected, and that said sum of five hundred and four dollars seventy and a half cents has not been paid to the county of Tatnall

Be it therefore resolved, That the treasurer is hereby authorized and required to correct the charge against the county of Tatnall for the aforesaid sum of five hundred and four dollars seventy and a half cents, charged to said county on account of the purchase of confiscated property in the

year 1810.

And be it further resolved, That the county of Tatnall is hereby declared to be entitled to her full share of the funds heretofore set apart for the county Academies, and that the trustee of the poor-school of the said county be, and he is hereby authorized to receive the same by warrant on the treasurer.
