CO CUT HOUSE?
On the 2nd instant the County Com
missioners met for the purpisool con
sidering the advisability ol taking steps
towards coiumepoiug work on the Court
Houso for this County, at an early day.
Mr. Ralph li *15 Howotson, the arehi
toct of tho Columbia Court House, was'
present, and was authorized to dr ift a
plan for thc same, which is to be sub
mitted to the Board in a week orten
dayH. The building is to be fifty feet
wide and one hundred feet long, and
uot to exceed a cost of twenty-live
i housand dollars. We hope the work
will be com men ceil at an early day.
Our County is wealthy and we should
have a Court House to which we can
point to with pride.
A WORD TO BUSY-BODIES?
Wc have frequently hinted that it is
against our Jrulcs lor any person, except
those connected with this office, to read
matter either in manuscript or in
proof, that may be found upon the copy
hook or cases. Our hints have thus
far been unavailing. The positive
YOU MUST STOP THE PRACTICE, Or keep
your distance, is therefore in order.
The NEWS is private property, and so
are the articles written for it, until they
aro printed ami tho paper issued from
the press.* Then they belong to the
public, and wo cannot even prevent
those wH6 do not pay lor the piper, from
giving them a stolen perusal. Busy
bodies, if you can't mind your own
business when in thc Nkws' office, it
would bo better for you to get your
paper always from the postofhec, or jl
uot a subscriber (which is likely tho
ense,) spongo your neighbor's. But
whatever you do don't bother our prin
ters any more.
