stage, and in every fashionable circle, through
out England and the United States. We will
only mention the pieces entitled, " She gave a
wreath-of yoses-The Soldier's tear,- and Oh

Extract from aletter received in this District,
from the Jailor of Fayette county. Georgia.
dated SOMMEBrItZE. Jan 23. 847.
" Sanyo time since, a runaway slave by the
name of Edmond, was committed to the jail of
this cout ty. He says that he belongs to Mr.
-, that he was bought from Jos. Woods,
some seven or eight years ago.-he fuither
states, that he was decoyed off with several
other nogroes, by a white man, whose parents
live near Little Rock, Arkansas. I do not re
collect his name, though he told me, but I think
the boy called his name Hatcher, and whose
object was to sell them,- and then furnish them
wi h tuoney and free luisses to go to a free
State, this tale he has told repeatedly, but for
the corRectness of it-1 cannot vouch.
" Said boy is black. weighs about 1451bs., in
telligent, and speaks.quick or promptly when
spoken to, lie says that he plays well on both
flute and violin."
The gentleman to whom the letter wds di
rected, has been dead somo time, and his re
presentatives know nothing of the negro, we
have therefore published the above to enable
those who have negroes out to examine for
themselves into the matter.

Relief for their Families.-We trust
that our citizens will bear in mind, that
they are pledged for the support and com
fort of the families of such of our Volun~

have heard that some are in that condition,
and we cannot doubt, but the committee
appointed for the purpose, will see that
no one suffers ; it would be a disgrace to
the town. and an indelible stigma, upon
the honor and benevolence of our citizens.

To the Editor of the Greenvilte Mountaineer':
Sir.-Seeing in your paper of the 25th,.
as well as in the Spartan of the 23d uIt.,
some comments on the. accounts of the
Secretary of State and Stirveyer General,
I feel it a duty I owe to myself, both as an
officer and a citizen, to give a plain state
ment of FACTS in reference to the Sur
veyor General's account.
Under a: resolution of the session of
1845, the Governor appointed Comrrinis.
sioners to have the work-executed, for
which my account was presented.-and an
idea cif its magnitude may be inferred,
whet it is known that besides a volume
of Plats, and a volume of "Memorials,"
which have been copied, that Indexes in
le:sicographical order have been made to
every doument in the ollico, from the first
settlement of the country to the day [ took
charge of it ; that these Indexes present
at one glance the names of the grantee,
the location of the land, the number of
acres, volume and page of record, as well
as the day and year of survey ; and that
besides myself,"thirteen ot her persons-have.
at difTeren; times, an. for ,diterent peri
ods, been employed in the prosecution and
completion of this arduous undertaking.
It may not be amiss also to state the mo
dus operandi employed, which was as fol
lows : 1st. Transcribe fromp the original
records the various particulars above tnca
tioned, until the whole sett of books have
been gone through. 2d. Cut into slips
the paper on which the above has been
written, and arrange these slips in alpha
betical order. 3d. Arrange them in lexi
cographical or dictionary order. 4th. Ar
range in chronological order, where there
are more Grants than one to persons of
the some name. 5t:i. Arrange the whole
on wires or strong thread, and place thenm
on an extended frame for recording. 6th.
and lastly, From this frame, take down
the slips one by one, and transcribe them
into the new "General Idex." In this
wvay, 17 vnlumnes of Mentorials, cont aining
7,5'41.paes,2~1 volumes of Plats contain
ing TO,4 pag'es, and 237 bundles con
tainut46;852 Plats, have been indexed. So
.much for the labor, and now for the .com
Though no agrement ivas -madec as to
-tbe amount- ef- compen'sation, yet a prece
dent, if not a rule, was established by the
atmont~ hidretofo'e paid for similar servi
ces. Thus, it appears front a document
it1 this oflice, that D. Hi. Tilliughast, a
former 6urveyor General, got $2,500 for
a single volume of Index, which Index has
been luid-aside for treasons I do not like
publicly to state ; that he received the
further sum of $10,020 92 for copyinmg
other papers ill this oflice-that CoI. B. T.
Watts got, for preparing six volumes of
Indexese and copying some Grants, t he
sum of-S12,09686; -and that Martin Sttro
ble got, for making certain ludexes in
.Charleston, at the rate of 8 cents per
name.. [See Statutes, at large,. vol. 6,
pages 175,e03 jamd 235.J A fter reading
the above, I presume my bill of $I6,145
34..(uot $18,000, as stated in the Moun
taineer')-will hardly be thought extrava
gant for copying a volume of Plats, a vol
ume of Memorials, and -preparing eight
large /olio volumes of Indexes. It was
iiot so regarded by one 'well Qualified to
judge of such work, and whose certificate
accompanmiet iny account. I received,
howeyer, but $3.100 for the wvhole of my
services-that is to say, about $318 for
each vohrmze of the General Index, after
deducting tile amount of the volumes cop
ied, at only copy-sheet price about 2& eis
a niatne, whereas.Mr. Stroble got 8; atnd
about '$600 less than the wvork would comne
to by the copy-sheet, to say, not hing- of I te
arranging, whieb is by . Tfar the mos~ ar
duous part of of -the business.
The repder is doubtless agtonished at
this statement, and desires tai know the
reason, especially as the work, by unive~r
sal consent, wvas acknowledged to be wvell
executed. In answer to this very. natural
inquiry I womild calmly say, that however
harshly I have been treated, 1. wish riot
hastily to expose either the follies or thme
faults of erven my enemies. Some of their
devices .wpre tnot. known unitil after the
appropriation bill passed the Senate, when
it was of course too. late to meet them
there. Mr. Carew, of-the House, and
Chairman of-the Committee charged with
the-subject, did me the justice to read an
affidavit made by one of the writers in my
office, stating at the same time, that had
Comnmittee known the facts there set forth,
they would have. fixed a much higher
anmount of compensation. Mr. DeSaus
sure, the C'ommissioner in the ease, Col.
Hunt and Gen. Wallace, men of practical
knowledge, also showed the House the
entire inadequacy of-the appropriation for
so great an amount of labor ; but at such
a time (last night of the session but one)
membems wore not disposed to augment
an dnpron'rintinn maen by the Sunste.
Siciire the facts. in- reference to my
la1 .s my account, and my cumpensation,
I eaI4.k an investigation of the whole
matt ixtsession of the Legislature. J
wh orae -things that are now. hidden, C
shl be disclosed. In the meantime, C
though ntortified and disippointed I am c
cheered 1y the. reflection that I have left R
to nry conniry a monument of my zeal iK
and devoton as an officer, and I am per- PI
fedily sa isfied that one day or another; 1i
that country will do me justice. As to B
"B. F. P-"of the..Mountaineer, and "G. P
C."of th e Spartan, the former of these B
gentlemen evidently knew but little of the
matter. ami the latter; [ trust, wished to B,
act honestly, but was deceived by the false M
reptesentution to which I have alluded. H.
64%uthehwise, even I am not unmindful
'oflhe injtction contained in a very old T
book. and-ervently comply with its de
mands, rPray for them that despitefully
