As an instance I take the townshfps of Stroud and Hamilton though thonumbef ot acres" 'returned in the latter, is but OS the greatest, yet the quantity used for agricultural purposes, exceeds that amount-in" Stroud by several thousand acres and it is believed, the productiveness and relative value of the farms in the two townships, do'not greatlv differ and yet the average rate of ihe farms in Hamilton is but $8 per acre, while that of Stroud is nearly $13 a difference of nArly $5 per acre it follows that one is too high or the other too low, and in either case thatthp. dti7P.ns of Stroud are burdened with taxes, to an extent above the relative value. By a column in Table Hfyou will observe the same disnronortion exists in the Tax occupations: while the average rale to each taxable, in Hamilton is SI 60, in Rtiss the next township adjoining it is but $63 in Stroud it is $121, and in Price adjoining it is nothing at all ! ! In one township, Cows are rated at 558, and m all the rest at $10. Horses seem to be rated, just as the whim of the moment dictates. In Lower Smithfield they average $44 oach, and in Middle Smith field $34 1-2. In Pocono $28 1-4, and in Tobyhanna $47 1-2. In Stroud $35, and in Hamilton $40 and so on. In these matters each tax payer can make his own comments. Dwelling houses are separately enumerated in but four townships, and in their valuation the same system or rather want of system prevails. In one township pleasure wagons are taxed and in another gold ivalches for county purposes, though they are not in the list of taxable articles. In these remarks I by no means wish to'be understood as casting any reflections on the intentions ot the late assessors, believing as I do, that the deviations from the uniform standard directed to be observed in the section above quoted were caused by a misconception of the spirit'of the law. Now that a heavy State tax is to be levied in addition to the present county and township taxes it is highly important that the burden be equalized throughout "the County which can only be done by a strict observance ef the law of 1834, on the part of the Commissioners and Assessors.
