Wo say that no wholesale merchant, who is unwilling to patronize our enterprises, to the amount of a few dollars, should get oue dollar's worth of trade from our citizens. There uro uicr chauls iu Kuoxville who want tho trade of Sweetwater, and are willing to bring their business befcro our people by adver tising iu their county paper, and thereby helping to build up uud sustain some of our enterprises. Such men are the ones for our merchants to patronize.

Fj.i.i.ow Citizens: Permit me to say a few words in order to savo man;' questions, time uud money, in regard to taxes, with the very best of feel ings for you all. Tako them fur what they arc worth, and should I savo money for uny one, I shall then have accomplish ed all that 1 desire. Your taxes weie duo the first day of July last. My duty was, then, to notify you of the day I would be at your district to receive your taxes. Your duty was to meet mo on that day., aud pay them. Now that is all tho tax law iu a nut shell. Had each ono of us come up to the law, all would have been over lor 1S71, as regards tax paying, and nobody hurt. Put, alas! who failed ill their duty, you or I J Coder the rays of u scorching sun, when tho thermometer ranged from ninety degrees to one hundred, t attended ut oaeh district to reccivo your taxes. All right so far. Hut who met tno Not en ough fur u corporal guaid. Then tho law gave me a judgment against every one who failed to meet mo uud pay, and not ono vestige of property is exempt from being taken and sold right away the very next day, that is all told. Those who owe their tax for 1871, know it, and to them I am talking and I know what 1 say, and mean the same. There is u cri sis iu money mutters, such us many of you never saw; and taxes over double what they were iu 170, but we pay taxes to execute the civil law, uud to-day the strong arm of tho law is over us, and can be executed to tho loiter. Then cheer up. Now tako the strong urm of the civil law from over us, and there is noth ing we cud call our own. Subji-cl to bo trampled under foot us we were u few years past, by lawless mobs, a lid our lives in jeopardy every hour. Not so to-day, with the civil law executed to the letter. I had rather double the tux I pay, than to bo again placed iu that condition. Who would not 1 Hero, then, is the plan: put oil' every debt you owe to man; the nioix-l.n nt, tho lawyer, und all, and say to them that your taxes you cau pay, you must pay, and you will pay, and iu so doing you will save your little homo that you may be enabled to live uud pay them when you can. That is your only plan, fur there is uo law to favor you for tuxes. But all other debts you have something to full buck upon, such as this, tho Stay Law, the Exemption Law, the Homestead Law, &.o. Not so with taxes. 1 say to you all, look well to your interest. I have to close out within the year, and pay over, in December next, und now I say with all good feeling, that I have to col lect, I uiu.-t collect, and I will collect, not Providentially hiutlercd. A w ord to tho wise is sufficient. Lust, hut not least, I shall ever feel under .lasting obligations to you all, lor your kind treatment and hospitality. You have takt-u me to your homes and abundantly led me and cured for met under all circumstances. In re turn call at your humble servant's cabin aud all I can do to render you comfort able, will be done with delight. Yours, Respectfully, Kz. C. HinR:s, Tax Cul. Dots From Madisoinillc Ma.
