THE Naw PoST kL LAw.-After the 1st of
January, 1875, editors have to prepay all the
papers from their office. Of course no pub
isher can afford to pay postagefor a subscri
ber in arrears. We give this timely notice
to all delinquents that we will not let their
names encumber our books after that period.
DxcIsio.i oF TE CouzTs.-Any person
who takes a paper regularly from the Post
Office-whether directed to his name or ano
ther, or whether he subscribed or not-is re
sponsible for the pay. If a person orders his
paper discontinued he must pay all arrear
ages, or the publisher may continue to send
it until payment is made, and collect the
whole amount, whether it is taken from the
offlce or not. The-Courts have decided that
refusing to take newspapers and periodicals
from the Post Office, or removing and leav
ing them uncalled foi, is prima facie evidence
of Intentional fraud. 44-tf.
Communications on subjects of interest to
the public are always acceptable. The names
of writers, remember, must always aceompa
ny a letter to insure its publicaticn. No re
sponsibility is assumed for any other views
than our own.
All single or transient business notices in
the local department are inserted at the rate
of fifteen cents per line-liberal contracts
made for three. six or twelve months. tf.
( TAKE NOTICE.-All parties having Ad
minisatrater's or Executor's Notices for
publication, will save themselves trouble
by coming prepared to pay for the same
before insertion, as our terms are cash.
Lawyers handing in such notices will be
held responsible for the payment.
They will also be held responsible for the
publication of all notices in Bankrupt cases.
Transit advertisements of any kind must
be paid for in advance, if the parties adver
tising do not reside in town.
Job work and subscriptions strictly cash.
All papers shall be stopped hereafter as
Won as the term of subscription expires, un
less satisfactory arrangements are made to
continue the same.
The X mark denotes expiration-after that
the paper is discontinued.
Bear these things in mind. 3-tf,

stalk so far brought in for exhibition is
from the plantation of Mr. Orlando

GOOD ADVICE.-An old bachelor was the

by reason of the large number of pupils, for
was so varied by dialogue, speech and
poem, and interspersed with vocal and sta
instrumental music, that the time occu--el
pied did not seem long. We werees
nuch pleased, and especially with the I
ocal efforts. The organ was mamupu- fo
ated with much spirit and decided mu

Boston. After the exhibition by the d
pupils the audience was addressed by
