Wr. Irvine. Mr. Hamilton, and Mr. Brown, to whom was referred a' motion of Mr. Dane, relative to public and urtfettlcd accounts, having reported, That, ori carefully examining the subjcdl: referred to them, they find that during the late war, and especially in the early periods of it, inanymil-lion- s of dollars were advanced by the United Slates to sundry pcrfon? ; of the expenditures whereof proper accounts have not been rendered ; arid thoueh the perfdns who have been entrusted with public monies have been frequently called upon to settle their accounts by the afts andbfficers of Cong'efs, yet in many cases they have not produced or exhibited to the proper officers any documents or vouchers on which regular settlements can be made. 'That several accoun'S of very cbrifiderable extent have been tacn up, and so far paired on, that balances appear t'o be dated generally, and in some cases payments made, though it does not appear that the proper ftatcments were made of the articled which composed those accounts, or that the legular vouchers were produced to support the chaigcsin them. Accounts' thus imperfclly stated and the Committee conceive arejuftly liable 6 rcvifion; and particularly so, as it does not appear, that the parties have at any time cdnfideVcd them as being finally settled.- - That from a general view f this fubjeft, the Committee arc induced to think and believe, that the United States have already flittered very great inconveniences, by incxcufanle negligence and unaiuhorifed de!ays, in perfohsentrufted with public moRics, in net rendering ants settling their accdurits; arid that it is become highly expedient that decisive mttafures be speedily adopted for1 doling all the unsettled accounts of th'elae wa- r- ' and therefdrcthe Cemmittceare of opinion, ThaC the Board df Trcdltiry be directed, to eaufe suits tal be commenced in behalf of the United States, all persons who Itand charged with pubhc or other property ; and that they caul'e the same to be commenced within thiee months fiom this date, againfl all tdiofc persons who have been already specially required to settle their accoun's by the proper officers, and who lhall not within that time-- ' adopt and p'urfue measures effectual, in the opinion df the said Board, for settling the same; and within five irionrhs from this date, against all other persons so charged, and who shall not within that time adopt and pursue hkcmeafuies : and, that when anymate-r!a- l queftiorts ftHil ante concei ning any doubtful settlements of accounts .which may have been made, or concerning the operation of any particular suits, the said Board be Jire'ed to state to Congrcfs, particularly the circumttances dftfie case, witn their opinion thereupon.
