The county commissioner', at their
session, which came to an end yesterday
morning, did some wholesome work in
the way of retrenchment by reduc
ing the salaries of county officers.
At present, and in fact for several years
past, the ailowunccs for the sheriffs
ofllee, salaries, etc., have amounted to
i 4,00, a sum which the commissioners
evidently believe to be much too large,
and hence the reduction. At this time
and until the expiration of the present
sheriffs term the allowances tor the sher

Sheriffs salary $1,500 00

ceed 2.100 00
One clerk at a cost not to exceed 800 00
Incidental expenses of sheiifTs
office 400 00
Total $4,800 00
As above stated, the commissioners be
lieving this amount greater than the
county is able to pay ; and that the in
coming sheriff may understand fust what"
compensation himself nnd deputy will re
ceive, they have fixed the salaries and
allowances ns follows :
Salary of sheriff. $1,500 00
One deputy 900 00
Incidental expenses 100 00
Total $2,500 00
At present the sheriff Is allowed two
deputies aud $2,100 to pay them. Next
year the sheriff will be allowed one dep
uty and ir'.HJO to pay him. At present
the sheriff is allowed u clerk and $00 to
piy lilni. The next sheriil will have
to do the work himself, or pay clerk hire
out of his own pocket. At present $400
is allowed for incidental expenses of the

one which every Dcmecrat in the district
should b'nrtllv endor-e ts a fair somtion ol
alld.tllouliies, ami one which should restore
unity of action to the party.
There being vacancy on the ticket,
caused by the withdrawal of Mr. Oherly an

to the committee of the several eauntl ,

a ticket as they believe to be in accord wlto
the wishes of a majority of the Deni icraey.
It it shall be determined by the convention
that the be-t interests ol the party demand
a Oiw ticket, then let the convention nom
inate one ; but if on the other hand, it shall
he declued that the interests of the party
will hi best subserved by the ticket retrain
ing ni it is, then let the convention reltise to

nominees. Ve have accordingly notified

We will state that the surest, best and

These gentlemen, who have lonij been

in this city they have earned for themselves
an enviable rcputattou for honesty, integ

colossal in its proportions. In fact, the
amount of business done by this house iu

ful, and olten forms the subject of com

offices in Wall street to prove the truth of
tbe above statement.

secret which thev alone can explain; but
thut they succeed in tloinz so is a lact tie
well kuown to admit of doubt. It you
would safely and profitably invest your

with your cash and confidence. That by so
doing you will reap an nbuntlant reward,
