If Washtenaw county had a board of county auditors, composed of three good men, who shouid meet, say twice in each month, to nudit accounts against the couuty. it would Have First. Fi ve hundred dollars for a week's session of the board of supervisors. Second. A delay in each claimant's case of from three to ritteen months for labor or material done or furnished, in getting his pay, and the trouble of going or seuding two or three times for his warrant. Third. A large amount in the sums paid by the county, because a board so oonstituted would soon come to know what is a proper charge for certain vices, and be able to treat eacli claiinant with equal and exact justioe; while the oommittoe upon claims, as now made up, consumes half the session in becoming familiar with their duties, and are then seldom satistied with theinselves. - [Saline Observer. The Demoobat long ago advocated the same thing, and at some future day we shall have something more to say on the subject.
