SECRETARY OF STATE'S OFFICE,

Columbus, Ohio, June 10, 1835.

TO THE HONORABLE THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY:

The Secretary of State would respectfully represent, that since the adjournment of the last session, in order to supply the calls of the State Printer for paper to finish printing the Laws and Journals of that session, he has been compelled to purchase, at various times, a quantity of paper, not then anticipated; and for that purpose has drawn on the Stationary Fund to the amount of $1364—which leaves a balance of that fund of only $809 94 5, including all previous appropriations. As various items of stationary have already been, and must hereafter be procured, for the use of the Legislature at the present session, and paid for out of this fund, it is evident that the balance will be wholly inadequate to supply the demands of the State for the residue of the current year, aad make the annual purchase required by law.

It is also well known to the General Assembly, that the duty of procuring a Standard of Weights and Measures for this State, was imposed on the Secretary by a law of last session, and the necessary expenses appropriated out of his Contingent Fund. A correspondence

has been opened with the Secretary of the State of New-York, on the subject of procuring the standard directly from the originals in his office, and the probable expense thereof, together with such practical information as he may deem useful in supplying the people of this State with a correct standard of weights and measures. 'The necessary expense of procuring the originals is not yet known at this office, but the balance of the Contingent Fund is only $407 68 5. It is therefore suggested, whethether the interests of the State do not rerequire additional appropriations, at the present session, for the purchase of stationary, and to the Contingent Fund of the Secretary of State. Very respectfully submitted,

B. HINKSON,

Secretary of State. Which communication was referred to the Standing Committee on Finance.
