JOINT RESOLUTION Requiring the Attorney General to take steps to collect $2,761.44 from

Samuel Doyle. WHEREAS, Samuel Doyle received from W. Griswold, acting commissioner of the public works, at the date thereof, three checks for the sum of $1,915 each, and dated December 15, 1856, January 15, 1857, and February 14, 1857, respectively, and all made payable to Samuel Doyle, or order, and which, when paid, were in full payment of all demands on the part of said Samuel Doyle and Samuel Doyle & Co. against the State of Ohio of every kind and description up to February 15, 1857, growing out of the contract between said Doyle & Co. and the State of Ohio for repairs upon section No. 2, of the public works of the State awarded said Doyle & Co. November 15, 1855; and

WHEREAS, The said checks dated December 15, 1856, and January 15, 1857, were by the State of Obio fully paid to the said Samuel Doyle on the 23d day of April, 1857, and the check dated February 14, 1857, on the Sth day of May, 1857, and fully receipted for, and payment acknowledged by the said Samuel Doyle at the date last aforesaid ; and

WHEREAS, The said Samuel Doyle addressed his memorial to the General Assembly of the State of Ohio at their session in 1861, representing therein that said checks had not been paid, and that the full amount thereof was still due him, although he had presented the same for pay. ment, and the said General Assembly having no evidence of the payment of said checks, as said checks, after having been so receipted by the said Samuel Doyle, were mislaid in the office of the Auditor of State, and be lieving the same were unpaid, and under a misapprehension of the facts, did, on the 11th day of May, 1861, pass a joint resolution authorizing the Auditor of State to draw his warrant on the Treasury in favor of the said Samuel Doyle for the sum of $2,761.44, which sum the said Samuel Doyle, in his memorial addressed to this General Assembly, admits he received and receipted for, which sum was in fact paid him on day of 1861; all of which will more fully appear by a letter of the Auditor of State hereto attached, marked A.

AUDITOR OF STATE'S OFFICE, COLUMBUS, Apr. 1, 1870. Hon. G. A. Hubbard, House of Representatives :

DEAR SIR:—The claim of Samuel Doyle, for alleged balance due on certain checks issued by the Board of Public Works, as set forth in bis memorial, has been discovered to have been paid in full in 1857. The action of the Legislature in 1861, by which the sum of $2,761.44 was appropriated for payment of balance supposed to be due upon said checks, served to mislead in the investigation that was made last year in this office. As there was no suspicion of pay't prior to 1861, and as none was made subsequent to the pay't of $2,761.44, it was believed that the balance remained unpaid. It now appears, as stated before, that the checks were paid in full in 1857, as follows:

Checks No. 30 and 31, for $1,915.00 each, paid to Bartlit & Smith, Apr. 23, 1857—$3,830. Check No. 33, for $1,915.00, paid on May 8, 1857, to Samuel Doyle in person-$1,915.00.

These checks are identical with the receipts given to W. Griswold, Acting Commissioner of Public Works, on the 15th December, 1856, 15th of January, 1857, and February 14, 1857, for $1,915 each, by Doyle & Mil. ler, and correspond exactly with the checks referred to in the memorial of Samuel Doyle, with the joint resolution of the General Assembly in 1861, and the act appropriating $2,761.44 in 1861.

This evidence of pay't was only discovered to day, and that, too, accidentally, the vouchers being out of their proper place. The papers had been taken from the files by some persons unknown, probably a committee of investigation.

JAMES H. GODMAN, Aud. of State. Therefore, Resolved by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio, That the Attorney General be and he is hereby authorized and required, if said sum of $2,761.44, with interest from the date of the payment thereof, is not refunded to the State within sixty days, to take the necessary steps, by suit or otherwise, for the collection or recovery of the same.

Resolved, further, That the joint resolution relative to the claim of Samael Doyle,“ passed May 11, 1861, be and the same is hereby rescinded.

A. J. CUNNINGHAM, Speaker of the House of Representatives.
