All owners of slaves within the said Districts shall furnish one half of their malo slaves, subject to road duty, for ouo month, receiving credit in tho estimate for labor furnished under former calls. III. The Commissioners of Hnniis nftlm snvurnl Districts and the authorities of the incorporated towns and villages within the limits of this Division will, at once, summon all slaveholders within the limits of their authority to furnish their respective quotas of slave labor, giving credit for labor already furnished and seeing that all fractions are represented, and not rejected as hitherto, which can easily bo done by uniting fractions.
