Superannuation. The Superannuation Act of 1859 enables the permanent Civil Servants to retire on attaining the age of sixty; but those under this age who wish to retire, must produce medical testimony that they are, from mental or bodily infirmity, incapable of efficiently discharging their duties.
On the head of their department testifying to their good conduct, the Treasury grants a retiring persion in accordance with the following scale =
I.-An allowance of ten-sixtieths of his salary and emoluments to every person who has served ten years and under eleven years.
II.-An allowance of eleven-sixtieths of his salary and emoluments to every person who has served eleven years and under twelve years.
III.—And, in like proportion, until a service of forty years is completed, when forty-sixtieths, the maximum retiring allowance, is granted.
IV.-- The Treasury, however, from some special qualifications, or some very important public services performed, very often add years to a gentleman's service on his retirement; but in no case does the pension exceed the salary.
Messengers, Matrons, Housekeepers, &c. We have not considered it necessary, in some instances, to tabularize the qualifications and salaries of these officers. general rule, the ages extend to 40 or 45, the salaries vary very much, and the requirements are usually-writing from dictation, first four rules of arithmetic (not including the compound rules), and, in a few instances, reading.
Entrance Age. In almost every office one month after the prescribed age is allowed to candidates. In the Royal Irish Constabulary two months are allowed. It is customary to allow five years additional to the prescribed age to candidates already in the Public Service, who entered it within the prescribed limits.
