Lexington, May 2G, 18S3.
Hon. Chas. Folger,
Sec't'y of Treasury, Washington, D. C,
Sir: I herewith ' enclose to you
the resignation of guager Benjamin F..
Harris, to take effect on the 1st proximo.
Mr. Harris has been one of the most
faithful and efficient officers we have
ever had in this district, and l am sorry
to give him up ; but he is now over
years of age, and insists on retiring.
He'is entitled to anHONORABLE discharge.
A. M. SWOPE, Collector.
Frank Armstrong, deputy sheriff, under
an order from the Louisville Chancery
court issued at the instance of E. H.
Courtney, of Lexington, to cover an
indebtedness of $5,000, attached the warehouse
and.residence here of Wm. Davie
& Co., and the large new distillery at
Millersburg, on Tuesday last. Two years
ago this firm erected the large distillery
at Millersburg, at a cost of about $40,000,
but owing to the general surplus of goods
manufactured, it has never turned a
whfip.l to brine in a dollar. To counter
act the loss on this nonpaying investment,
when there was a bright side presented
for the extension of the bonded
period, the firm bought 18,000 barrels of
the '81 crop at such figures as would
have called the turn for $100,000 or more
had the prophesy been correct, but it
still lies in bond, and would not to-day
bring over first cost, thereby placing .the
firm in rather straightened circumstances,
from which it is hoped that it will soon
pull through without further disaster.
