§ THE MARQUESS OF CLANRICARDE moved, for a Return of the Proceedings in the Offices of the Taxing Masters of the Irish Court of Chancery for the Year ending the 1st November, 1860, in the following tabular form analagous to that of the Judicial Statistics for the same Year. [The Form is then given.] It had been announced else where that a 544 third taxing-master was to be permanently appointed in the Irish Court of Chancery. Such an appointment would be neither more nor less than a gross job. The average amount of costs taxed by each taxing-master of the English Court of Chancery vas £112,180. The average of costs, taxed by each taxing-master of the Irish Court of Chancery, in years of extraordinary pressure, was £64,260. If, therefore, the total costs of the Irish Court of chancery were taxed by two instead of three officers, the average work for each should be £96,390 only, against £112,180 for each taxing-master of the English Court.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ House adjourned at a quarter before Seven o'clock, to Monday next, Eleven o'clock.
