Wmnas, we, the citizens of Manning,
and the county of Clarendon realizing the
powers of the one Divine and true God, and
ko that we can but submit to that
whieh doth decree, whether it be to re
move from this earth the small babe or the
mighty statesman; and, whereas, we have
read' with painful regret of the death of Jef
aerson Davis, Ex-President of the Confed
' eratea States of America, and Ex-Secretary
of War for our glorious Union; therefore,
Resolved, That Jeff Davis was the embodi
ment of true and noble manhood; that we
shall ever remember him as the leader of
that cause in the defence of which so many
true Southerners poured out their blood
and mauianh their lives on the field of bat
- nmb4 'That we shall ever cherish the
nameofJ Davis; thathis name will be a
household word, and will go down into pos

the great statesmen of the earth; that we ex
our sympathy to his family, and that
resolutions be published in the county
papers and the Koews and Courier.

A crowd of people as usual, patronized

no doubt that many, who owed debts they

A good way for the taxpayer, who has

sickness or out of the county during the
time of listing. Not knowing the time of
listing is no excuse. And all owners of
real estate might do their tenants, who can
not read or take a newspaper, a retfavor
by making their returns or telling them the
time of listing, and that if they fil to make
their returns mn time that the valuation has
to be increased fifty per cent. unless they
have a good excuse.
The assessing and collecting of taxes is
all done now in the same year, and we have
to aggregate the number and value of all

acres of land, lots and buildings and their
value, that there is in the county and have

year. And from that time to the first day
of October each year the auditor's and treas
urer's duplicate has to be completed and an
abstract of the work in the Comptroller's
offce by that time, which will show at a
glance that the auditor has no time to take
in returns, or do anything else much, be
tween the first day of March and the first
day of October each year, but work on the
books and blanks. Therefore hope that all
taxpayers will dto us the favor of making
their returns in time.
