Attorney-General's Office, ) 
February 26, 1855. \ 

To the Honorable the Speaker 

of the House of Representatives : — 

Sir : — I have the honor to transmit to you, to be laid before 
the Legislature, the accompanying Abstracts and Tabular 
Statements of the Reports of the several District- Attorneys, 
and the Attorney of the Commonwealth for the county of 
Suffolk, for the year 1854, together with a statement of the 
cases which have required the attention of the Attorney- Gen- 
eral in Court during that portion of the year that I have held 
the office. 

This statement, however, presents a very inadequate and par- 
tial view of the labors of the office of Attorney-General. I was 
qualified under my present Commission on the 20th of May of 
the last year, thus making a period of about seven months em- 
braced in this Report. From my former experience in the 
office, I can state with entire confidence to the Legislature, 
that, since its reestablish merit in 1849, its duties and responsi- 
bilities have increased more than fourfold. An illustration of 
the extent and variety of the calls to which the Attorney- 
General has occasion to respond, under a liberal construction, 
such as I have been accustomed to give to them, of the laws 
prescribing his official functions, will be found in the most 
recent experience of the office. During the period covered by 
this Report, from the 20th of May to the 31st of December 



4 ATTORNEY-GENERAL'S REPORT. [Feb. 

last, I have been consulted by, and given oral and written 
opinions upon important legal questions arising out of the 
diversified interests of the Commonwealth to, the following 
public officers : — 

His Excellency the Governor, 

Committees of the Executive Council, 

The Secretary of the Commonwealth, 

The Treasurer and Receiver-General, 

The Auditor — the Adjutant- General, 

The Bank Commissioners, 

The Commissioners on the Back Bay, 

The Harbor Commissioners, 

The Inspectors of the State Prison, 

The Secretary of the Board of Agriculture, " 

The State Actuary of Foreign Insurance Companies, 

The Trustees of the State Lunatic Hospital, 

The Boards of Examiners of Berskshire and Dukes Coun- 
ties, 

The Commissioners of the State Reform School for Girls, 

The Superintendent of Alien Passengers, 

The Agent of the Alien Pauper Commissioners, and sev- 
eral of the prosecuting officers, upon questions arising in their 
respective districts. 

I have also attended the Supreme Court of the United 
States at Washington in the case against the State of Rhode 
Island, respecting the Boundary Line between the two 
States, referred to in the accompanying Statement. 

In view of the duties of the office, it is sometimes indispen- 
sable that the Attorney-General, while engaged in those duties 
in court or elsewhere which cannot be delegated to other 
hands, should be authorized to employ such clerical assistance 
in other departments of his office as will prevent a delay of 
the public business. This is especially true of the preparation 
of the Abstracts of the Annual Reports of the District- Attor- 
neys, which are required by law to be made by him for the use 
of the Legislature, at a period of the year when his other du- 
ties are most pressing. 

I therefore venture to ask the favorable consideration of the 
Legislature to the order recently introduced into the House 
of Representatives upon this subject, and referred to the Com- 



1855.] HOUSE— No. 119. 5 

mittee on the Judiciary. I feel confident that the two branches 
will be satisfied, upon a knowledge of the facts, that such a 
provision of law as it contemplates is required by the exigen- 
cies of the public business. 

All which is respectfully submitted. 

JOHN H. CLIFFORD, Attorney- General.
