Oath to be administered to viewers, or reviewers of a road.

You, and each of you do solemnly swear, that you will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties assigned you, as viewers (or reviewers) of the road described in your

order of appointment, to the best of your understanding. So help you God.

The foregoing precedents, with a little variation, will serve as a guide in all cases reducible to forma

CLERKS.

OT In the state of Indiana, the supreme court appoints its own clerk, for the term of seven years; the clerks of the circuit courts are elected for a like term, by the qualified voters in their respective counties, and each clerk so elected, is in his proper county, ex officio, clerk of the probate court, and of ene board of commissioners. Con. Înd. A. V. Séc. 8 Rev. L. 130, 156.

To furnish a complete set of forms, applicable to the duties of clerks in all cases, is not the object of the present compilation.

A book of forms comprising all the varied subjects within the compass of a clerk's duties would far surpass the contemplated bounds of the present volame; and such forms would be, in a great measure,

useless to those officers for whose benefit this work is principally designed. To unexperienced clerks, however, some aid may be derived from the foregoing forms, in cases where the duties of the clerk are blended with those of associate and probate judges and county commissioners. In addition to which, it is the duty of the auditor of public accounts, whenever he shall deem it requisite, to transmit to each of the clerks of the circuitcourts instructions relative to the form of assessment rolls, the manner of certifying collector's bond, &c. Rev. L. 429.

The following formshave been prescribed by the auditor:
