To the Senate and House of Representatives :

I herewith transmit to the Senate, and also to the House of Representatives,one copy each of the reports of the several Bank Coinmissioners, and to the House of Representatives the quarterly returns made by the several banks in this State.

When about to direct the Bank Commissioners to examine into the concerns of the several savings banks in this State, a doubt aross as to the legal liabilities of those institutions to pay the commissioners for their services. The great importance of these institutions to the industrious poor, renders it doubly necessary that a strict watch be kept over them; and it is very desirable that the source from whence comes the payment of all the expenses necessarily incurred in their examination should be distinctly known.
