Candidates for Washington County.
A CARD.
In obedience to the urgent request of many
citizens of this countj, I hereby announce my
self a cs ndklate tor the office of Commissioner
of the Revenue for the West end of Washington
county, -at the approaching election.
I have neither the time nor the inclination to
electioneer for the position, but if my fellew
citizens will honor toe with the positiou, tbey
may rest assured that its duties shall be faith
fully discharged. ( To the voters I would say,
that I rely entirely on my merit, and unlike
some other candidates, I, during the pendancy
of the election, will stay in the field where duty
calls, while they remain at home selling whis
ky at enormous high rates, speculating on the
wants of the soldier and the soldier's wives. I
have served my country iv the army for two
and a half years, and as to my merit, I appeal
to the commanders of my Regiment to which I
have belonged,'submitting my case to you lor
your approval or rejection. % i
I am very respectfully,
Your obedient servant, •
J. C. STA'NFIELD,
Capt. Co. C, 22d Va. Cavalry.
To the People of
WASHINGTON COUNTY.
I announce myself a candidate for the next
Sheriffalty. The best service I can render, will be
to raise a good crop, and'l .intend to bend all my
efforts to the accomplishment of that end, (as 1
have been preparing for it all winter,) I shall
not, therefore'be able to visit the voters gene
rally. It is known to every one that the enemies
of a candidate often report to slanders and tra
ductions. I trust the people will not be influ
enced by falsehoods and slanders started on the
eve of every election. J '
You all know me, and my past life is open to
your inspection, I keep nothing hid. I ask my
friends to come to the polls and give me their
votes. WM. KING HEISKELL.

I beg leave respectfully to announce myself
a candidate for re-election as Commissioner of
the Revenue, for the upper District.
This announcement has been deferred out ef
respect for the claims of another, whose recent
withdrawal has been published
Employments of a private nature upon my
farm and that of my mother,! together with
other business as well as the limited public du
ties I may have to perform, will prevent me
from canvassing theicounty and calling upot
the voters at their *vn bouses, which indeed
may be regarded as uunecessyry or improper in
the present, state of the country.
If re-elected, I will perform the duties of the
