receipt of these instructions, and will proceed to
assess, and collect taxes as follows, viz:
On thc market value of tho gross amount of
Spirituous Liquors manufactured during thc quar?
ter ending December 31, 1808, 5 per cent.
From the sale of Goods, Wares or Merchandize,
embracing all the articles of trade, sale, barter or

On all articles manufactured for sala, barter or

[Convention] on every $100 worth.
County Treasurers and Tax-Collectors will notice
the accompanying circular in reference to sales of
Cotton, which is included with other articles of

 cents on the $100 worth of manufactured arti?
cles, as Convention tax, there being no general

in the assessments for last quarter; you will,
therefore, require merchants to return all sales
which were omitted in last returns. Cotton raised
previous to January 1, ISGS, is taxed by tho United

thc State Treasurer such funds as they receive,
and must enter thc- same upon thc duplicates in

AYER' S CHERRY PECTORAL.
For Diseases of the Throat and Lung*, such as
Coughs, Colds, Whooping Cough, Bron
chitis. Asthma and Consumption.
PROBABLY never before in the whole history of
medicine, has anything won BO widely and BO
deeply upon tho confidence of mankind, as this
excellent remedy for pulmonary complaints.
Through a long scries of years, and among most
of tho races of mon, it has risen higher and higher
in their estimation, as it has become better known.
Its uniform character and power to enro tho vari?
ons affections of tho lungs and throat, have made
it known as a reliable protector against them.
While adapted to milder forms of disease and to
yonng children, it is at tho same time tho most
effectual remedy that can bo given for incipient
consumption, and the dangerous affections of tho
throat and lungB. As a provision against sudden
attacks of CROUP, it should be kept on hand in
every family; and, indeed, as all aro sometimes
subject to colds and cougbB, all should boprovidod
with this antidoto (or them.
Although settled CONSUMPTION is thought
incurable, still great numbers of cases where tho
disease Bcemeu settled have been completely
cured, and tho pationt restored to sonnd health by
tho CHERRY PECTORAL. Bo completo ia its
mastery over tho disorders of tho lungs and
throat, that tho most obstinate of them yield to it.
When nothing olso could reach them, under tho
CHERRY PECTORAL they eubeide and disap?
SINGERS and PUBLIC SPEAKERS find great
protection from it.
ASTHMA is always relieved and often wholly
cured by it.
BRONCHITIS is generally cured by taking tho
CHERRY PECTORAL in small andfreauent donna.
So generally aro its virtues known that, we need
not publish tho certificates of them hero, or do
moro than assure the public that its qualities aro
AYER S AGUE CURE,
For Fever and Ague, Intermittent Fever, Chill
Fever, Remittent Fever, Dumb Ague, Feriodieal
or Bilious Fever, ?tc., and indeed all the affections
which arise, from malarious, marsh, or miasma?
As its name implies, it does Care, and doe? not
fail. Containing neither Arsenic, Quinine, Bis?
muth. Zinc, nor any other mineral or poisonous
substanco whatever, it in nowise injures any pa?
tient. Tho number and importance of its eurea in
the ague distriota, are literally beyond account,
and we believe without a parallel in the history of
Aguo medicine. Our pndo is gratified by thc
acknowledgments we rcceivo of tho radical enres
effected in obstinate caaes, and where other reme?
dies had wholly failed.
Uuacclimated persons, either resident in, or
traveling through miasmatic localities, will be
protected bv taking the AGUE CURE daily.
For LIVER COMPLAINTS, nrising from tor?
pidity of tho Liver, it is an excellent remedy,
stimulating the Liver into healthy activity.
For Bilious DisorderB and Liver Complaints, it
ia an excellent rcmeky, producing many truly re?
markable cures whore other medicines had failed.
