I have every confidence in the integrity of the gentlemen composing the auditorial board. They are also doubtless men of general accuracy in calculations. But sir it iS" not to be expected that any two individuals would have ar- rived at perfect results in a many large calculations- a are em braced in the report of the board. Ami as I before remarked t can see no good grounds for the position assumed by gentle- men that the Treasurer and Comptroller at or before the mon- ey is finally paid out shall notbe allowad to correct calcula- tions. If tfie bill were amended as I wish those officers would then have power to correct mistakes in figures but would -have no power conferred an them which would permit the...
