culating the" report that our County
Cqart would mako a levy tho coming

poso of paying the dobt incurred In im
proving the com t house. Does ho not
know that tho ConMitiition fixes tho
levy at not exceeding fifty cents on tho
ono hundred dollar valuation, nnd that
tho Court cannot go boyond this sum?
If ho docs know it, ho has been making
false representations wilfully. If ho is
unacquainted with the law, hu i cer
tainly too ignorant to bo talking about
tho matter. Tho Court House will cost
about ton thousand dollars, just one
third tho revonife of tho county. Now
if thu Court desired to pay this debt in
