INTRODUCTION.

The Clerk's Manual was first issued in 1855, by Hon. Richard U. Sherman, who had been Clerk of the House for the sessions 1851-2, 1854. Under resolution it has been continued from year to year. The changes inade at various times in the rules of the House and Senate, also the changes in the Constitution of the State relating to the pay of members, and of the law relative to the manner of payment, as well as the recent legislation in regard to the Clerk's department, have rendered necessary a revision of the work, to meet present requirements.

It contains an explanation of the mode of organizing the Assembly, the number and duties of the officers, the compensation of members and officers, and how they can draw the same; a form for the guidance of members in the transaction of the business of the House; the joint rules of the two Houses; the rules of the Senate and Assembly of the last session; Croswell's Manual; also an “Appendix” to the Clerk's Manual.

JOHN S. KENYON,

Clerk of the Senate. GEORGE W. DUNN,

Clerk of the Assembly.
