To the Editoi Cairo Bi'Ll.tita;
DmR Sir : In the published transae
tlons of the county commissioners
court, September term, appearing in this
day's paper, is a communication
lrom Mr. Peter Saup, sheriff, directed to
the honorablo county board of couinils
sionors, wherein said Peter gaup
charges that I threw down on the floor
of tho county clerk's room certain
amounts In county orders and Jury certi
ficates and positively refused to ready e
said orders. 1 raorely wish to tinier who
said Peter Saup and further to state that
such statement 1 ful.se. Up to June 7th,
1S77, Mr, Saup paid me in county orders
und jury certificates about $3,4:W 07, but
not one cent In money on account of
county taxes. Some time in Juno while 1
was busy with my assessments he
brought into my ofliee about $:),(ioo In
county orders and asked for u receipt for
them. 1 did then ask him to make a
statement, Ac, and he refuting to do so,
I demanded a statement so that I diould
know how to charge tho sauiu on my
books. He refusing Iu language prob-.
ably more foroeablo than elegant, I thrift
his eleven orders (lurgt order) into his
hand and relused to receipt therefor till
he made a statement; and further I made
formal demands on him to comply with
the luw governing his office. I therefore
deny throwing the orders on the lloor,
but do distinctly remember that one
piece fell on the tloor in transmission
from my hand to his, and 1 do em
phatically deny thatl "jfniml; -i-faud
to receive said orders," tor I expressed
my willingness to do so on his making a
statement, as provided by law. Note,
this occurred late in June; the cominU-
sioners metln July. 1 appeared before
them and reported my actions to them,
and asked them to procure legal advice
from their sallaried legal advisers, and
that I, being their servant, would comply
with their advice or direction. How
ever, I heard no moro lrom them, But,
noteagain, about two days before the
so-called settlement between Sherifl Saup
and Commissioners Brown and Sams
mons, a respected citizen ot this plucc
called on me and asked why 1 did not
settle with the sheriff. I explained to him
the state ot the case, and he hciug a
mutual friend, I told him to act for me
and I would do as he decided; he made
efforts but met with no response. I
withhold this gentleman's name, as It is
probable that he should not like to ap
pear in print, but Interested parties may
learn It, and more, by consulting me.
I do not mention all I know in these
transactions it yet may go further than
newspaper communications. Very
respectfully your obedient servant, .

The Good Time Oomlna The Farmer la
Happy-A Flourlnir Mill Wanted at
Thabea Union County -Her Soil,
Dn.foou, Ii.i.., Sept., 24, 1877.
To the Editor of the Ucli KT1N :
Our merchants, millers and tradesmen
of Dongola all wear a smllo Indicating
prosperity anil a general revival ot busi
ness, Inclining us to believe that the
'good tinio coming,' so often spoken ot, Is
upon us. The farmers, too. aro all Joy
ously disposing of their produce, rccelVt
injf the greenbacks for the same, lifting
morigites, paying off old scores, and
guln on their way rejoicing. The only
class we have seen looking blue arc our M.
I)'b., i fie reason for which Is the excellent
health of our people, which Is good for
the neoplc, but bad tor the M. D's.
Recently wo visited the ancient city of
Thebes, in Alexander county, and were
struck with ustonishment at the dullness
ot matters und things there, and the un
tlinftol the place. It Is upparent to all
that a flouring mill Is one ot the greatest
necessities of the place. It Is also ap
parent that it would pay. Why shouldn't
it? The wheat Is there and It Is the staple
of that part ot Alexander county. A mill
at Thebes will pay, and why it is that
some one don't build a mill in Thebes, Is
a problem we cannot solve. We throw out
these hints honing, to Induce some mill
man to put up a mill there. "A hint to
the wise," etc.
The L'nion coimtyfairforthc year 1S77
was a good one, but is now numbered
with things past. We can but think that
the institution Is a good one. When we
came to l'nion county, 21 years ago, we
found tanning, for the most part, decid
edly primitive in all its ramifications.
Then tho stock ol all kinds was ot the
lowest grade ol the "scrub kind." To
day the ease is quite diQerent, our county
producing as line stock of all classes as
any other county in the State. W e attri
bute this changs all to our county fairs.
True it Is that the I . C. railroad has
had much to do iu stimulating our larm
ets to make improvements in agriculture;
but the Improvements In stock Is almost
wholly attributable to our county fairs.
"Long may they wave."
While at Thebes wo put in four days
lutte pleasantly with Mr. 11. l'lanert,
who is a go-ahead and well to do farmer,
lie iulormed us that he is making tho
race lor county clerk. We wish he may
win, and can but think he will, us he Is
a gentleman and a man well qualilled.
It will be well for the
voters in Alexander couuly if they
succeed In installing Mr. Planert In the
office of clerk ot county court.
The time ot year foi tho opening ol
our fall and -winter schools Is upon m.
Let all the patrons be prompt In start
ing their children on the first day of
school, and keep them going regularly.
ITiless such be the case our schools must
be u failure,
