A Statement and Classification of the Expenditures of the Commissioners for draining the Cayuga Marshes, as shown from the vouchers on file in the Comptroller's office, prepared by the Comptroller, and annered to his Report of the investigation made by him, pursuant to the act of the 20th April, 1830.

THE RICHARDSON CONTRACTS.

The whole sum paid to Israel J. Richardson and Brothers, under both their contracts, and for the machines: Rendition A.

Total payments, as shown by the vouchers, . . . . . But one voucher is shown by the deposition of David H. Richardson, to have been given for $1,400, (See Rendition D. Voucher No. 18,) when less was paid upon it. He says he received a check upon the bank for $1,400, and signed a receipt for the same sum, but he cannot say what was paid. George W. Fitch, in his deposition, says he gave the check and took the receipt, and that from his book it would seem that $980 were paid, but he finds at the bank, that but $890 were paid. Suppose then that the sum ascertained at the bank be correct, the remainder of this voucher, never having been paid to the Richardsons, should be deducted, to wit, . . . . . . • - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

And the payments, in fact made, will appear to be,
l'or these payments the account is as follows:
The first contract made with the Richardsons, will
be found annexed to the deposition of David H.
Richardson, and a receipt in full of the contract
will be found endorsed upon it, signed by the con-
tractors, and expressing, as the whole amount due
to them under that contract, the sum of $7,498 26
But from the deposition of John McFad-
and the estimate of the engineer annex-
ed to his deposition, it will plainly ap-
pear that the grubbing was omitted in
the drafting of that recept, and there-
fore that the contract price of that work,
should be added, to wit, . . . . . . . . . . . . 100 00
The second contract with the Richardsons
is also annexed to the deposition of Da-
vid H. Richardson, and a receipt in full
of that contract will be found upon it,
signed by the contractors, and express-
ing as the whole amount due to them
under that contract, the sum of....... 29,998 85
Annexed to the deposition of David H.
Richardson, will also be found the con-
tracts for the purchase of machines by
the commissioners from the Richard-
sons, for the sum of $2,000, and the
receipt of the Richardsons, for that
sum, will be found endorsed upon the
contracts; still it is proved by all the

Showing an over-payment to them of... . . . . . . . . . . . 52

The only account given of this small overpayment, is to be found in the deposition of John McFadden, and the reason he assigns is, without doubt, the true one, that it was a mistake in casting the amount due upon the first contract, when the final settlement of that contract was made.

It is submitted that this view of these payments, and of the manner in which they are accounted for, pretty conclusively establishes the fact, left somewhat doubtful by the testimony, that but $890 was paid upon the $1,400 draft, and consequently, that the balance of the amount of that voucher, $510, remains in the hands of the late treasurer of the commissioners, to be accounted for. It also proves that but $1,800 was paid by the commissioners for the machines or cranes.

Remarks will be made, in another place, in relation to the small overpayment to the Richardsons, and especially in relation to the sum of $510, appearing to be short paid upon one of their vouchers.

THE PERCE CONTRACTS.
