THE bill, entitled “ An jAct to tax the office of prothonotary or clerk Jof the supreme court;" which was presented to me near the close of the last session, has not been sent back within three days after your present meeting, so that it is now become a law, I have directed it to be returned to the house of representatives in which it originated,

This is intended as an additional evidence of the deference I pay to the opinion of the legis. lature, by prefering it to my own.
