A-CASH ACCOUNT.

Your attention is called to this statement, showing balance in Treasury December 19, 1884, $645,214.83, after having disbursed $1,765,072.38.

D_OUTSTANDING WARRANTS.

This table shows the amount of pay warrants outstanding December 19, 1884, to be $115,964.83.

I feel confident that there is some discrepancy existing in this account, and the number of warrants outstanding will not exceed thirty or forty thousand dollars. Subsequent to 1873, the pay warrants issued have been recapitulated, abstracted and proven on the last of each month, but prior to that time such was not the case, but the amounts simply set down and carried forward from day to day, without being abstracted and proven. .

E-EXPENSES.

I call your attention particularly to this table, as it is a complete exhibit of the amount of payable warrants issued for two years, ending with December 19, 1884, from which (by taking into consideration the amount of Bank of Tennessee new issue certificates

now due and outstanding, with those falling due within the next two years), you can form a very correct idea of the amount necessary to run the State Government for the next two years. Total amount of warrants issued .....

PENSION TO BLIND,

M. Beazley, who has recently died. John Erskine, John Waldridge, F. M. Beazley, John W. Sawrie, Allen P. Morris, R. G. Hall, Eugene Butterworth and Alfred Graves.
