Mr. Murrell introduced a delicquei
1 ?nd law The bill re ijaires direct se
vice of notice that taxes are In arrear
upon resident tax payers, and full put
lished notice to non-residents. It givi
opportunity tor taxpayers to have si
months' extension of time upon shov.
ing valid reason for such extension ; sc
cure positive payment by levy, and re
turn all moneys so collected to owner

In other respects, the bill confotm

Mr Jennings Introduced a bill, whlcl
proposes to amend section 8 of the reve
nue laws, so as to prevent double taxa
lion on corporations engaged in nier
chandising or manufacturing, and else

Mr Buntin introduced a bill which
will prove of interest to the country
people. It provides for permanent im?
provement of roads by the ooonties un?
der State system and control so that the
leading highways of the State may be
put in proper ?shape for continuous lines
of travel. It prov'des for the Issue of
county bonds to the extent of an Inter?
est-bearing rate, which shall not exceed
one half the cost of the present road
system, except upon vote or petition of
the people of the several counties. It
al'O provides for a State road board, to
be composed of the St .te official?, and
for a State road commissioner. The
id 'a of having a State system is, that
counties mav build roads for continuous
travel instead, as may now be done, on
transverse lines,thus oouferring greater
benefits than can now be obtained.
