Town Taxes. The tax collector re
ports slow progress in making settlements
this year, and the time limited to the
work ends about 1st November. This
probably results in part from the in
crease of the. tax under the ameuded char
ter, which authorizes the taxing of per
sonal property as for county and State
purposes. The increase from this cause
iu some cases exceeds 33J percent, on the
amount collected last year.
We are not advised as to the aggregate
amount of assessed taxes for town pur
poses this year, but it will probably be
much larger than heretofore. It is a mat
ter of some importance tliat the financial
affairs of the town shall be managed with
sufficie-nt clerical skill as to -show clearly
and satisfactorily, and as much in detail
as possible, the various sources of revenue
as well as the subjects of disburseurents.
It is hardly sufficient that the Treasurer
should acknowledge the receipt of money
from the tax collector without statin:
from what aubjeet it comes. It will be

China Grove, N. C Oct. ID, 1877.
Governor Nieholls, of Louisiana, being
asked by a Chicago interviewer his views
on the political situation, replied that the
cotton and sugar crops were good ; that
in Louisiana there is less crime than there
has been for twenty years past ; that par
ty lines have been broken down and pol
itics are forgotten in fraternization and
business, and that it would be pre ma

Returning board till they have been tried
Disfranchisement of Hit Negroes.
As predicted by( Governor Hampton,
the first movement to disfranchise the ne
gro, comes from the North. It is now se
riously proposed by Northern Radicals to
reduce the representation in Congress by
disfranchisement of the colored voters.
They claim as representation in Congress
is based on the voting population, the
present House of Representatives would
not be nnder Democratic control but for
the fact that the negroes are allowed to
vote. They have discovered this fact af
ter the negro vote lias passed from nnder
the influence of die carpet-bagger. As
long as they could be manipulated by
Radical demagogues, it was a good thing
for them to vote, biit now, when the South
sends up almost a solid Democratic dele
gation to Congressj the negro vote is un
profitbale and cannot be endured.
The white people of the South opposed
placing the, ballot jin the hands of the ne
groes immediately i after their emancipa
tion", not from any jhostility to the negro,
bnt because of their ignorance and incom
petency, and the I danger of their being
controlled by bad pien to the detriment of
the country as theyjhave been in the South.
And now, as the jday of their political
vassalage is passing away, and they are
cutting themselves loose from the bondage
of Radicalism, the ;cry for their disfran
chisement is echoed by the very men who
were loudest in favor of their voting when
it would redound to the benefit of Radi
calism and give corrupt leaders an oppor
tunity to rob and pluuder the Southern
people. Let the selfish hypocrits remem-

Quwiuffle, Louisa couxt

-, IS77. S
I again retired, like Ciucinnatus, to Jhe
sacred soil. 1 live "off the road," aud
have consequently no news to tell, and
never hear any. Having "read justed"
mvself, I am not greatly concerned about
readjusting the public debt nor anything
else. It the creditors of the State can
stand the existing arrangements I think I
can also. I don't wish the taxes ou realty to
be raised, however,' for they are already
too heavy for me being at least twice the
amount usually stated iu the discussion
ot the State s finances. I pay the couuty
treasurer annually not merely 50 cents on
the $100 of the assessed value of my land,
but at least 100 cents. This, of course,
includes the county tax, the district-school
tax, &c, as well as the State tax. If,
however, I calculate these aggregate taxes
as imposed upon that portion of my laud
which affords me no income or profit, then
I am paying eight per cent, per annum iu
taxes! I believe, too, that this enormous
impost is practically in operation all over
V irgtnia, and that but lw counties can
be claimed as exceptions. I kuow that
yon teJl me to sell. But I can only au
swer bv asking vou to buy for there is
uo other purchaser in the market. I must
hold the land or throw it away. I prefer
to keep it, in hope of a better day
But I did not start out to say even so
much about public affairs, having "doffed
the world aside and bid it pass." Long a
believer iu the following lines, I have come
here to test their truth :
"llai'p; the man ljose wjsh and care

then let him be a brakeman on a railroad,
for then he will at least have opjortu si

cities and towns are crowded with an idle
class of young men who should be tilling

the hard times that now oppress us all.

However, I gave up the project of re
forming the world a year or so since, aud
I will let it go now e'en as it will. After
all, the rural sooster still has virtues of
his own. He is hospitable yet, although
not so profusely liberal as his father ; he
is not so suspicious as the city cock, aud
retains some confidence iu his felllows ;
he does not crow so much nor so loud as
his city brother, and he "goes to meetin'"
whenever he can. He gets up later and
lies down later than of yore, but is still
behind the city cock in these particulars ;
and although he works harder, he does
not work so rapidly nor so steadily as the
citv cock. In fine, notwithstanding the
railroads, the rural rooster is slow, while
the city cock is fast. The city chicken is
always in a huny ; the rural one, never.

Now and Then.
It m only now ami then that such men as
Hon. Alex. II. Stephen, Ex-Gov iSmith and
Ex-(iov. Brown ol'Ga., endorse a medicine for
the throal ami lung, and when they do it
pretty good evidence that tlie reraedv must bt
good for the cure of coughs, colds and lung af
fections. They recommend the Globe Flow
kr Couoil Syrup, and -their testimonials are
to be seen round the ten cent nample bottles of
the Globe Flower Syrup, for sale by Theo. F.
Kluttz. A sample bulile relieves the worst
cough and will cure sore throat. Regular size
bottles, fifty doses, $1.
A Very Good Reason.
The reason why only one sample botlle of
Mekkel s Hepatixe for the Liver will be sold
to th same person, for ten Cents, by our Drug
gist, Theo. F. Kluttz is because of tlie enormous
expense of importing the llepatine into this
country ; but as there are fifty doses in the large
size bottles, it seems two cents per dose is cheap
enough afterall lor a medicine that cures dys-
nevsia and liver complaint. All who have not
had a .sample bottle are entitled to one for ten
cents at Theo. F. Kluttz's Drug slore. Three
doses relieves any case of dyspepsia, constipa
tion, indigestion or liver complaint, in the
world, iiegular size bottles, fifty doses, 1.00.
The Buckeye has virtues which lie in the
bitter principle culled Jvculin, which have
Ween utilized for the cure of Hemorrhoids, or
Piles. In siiffi-ring with that disease use 'fab
ler's Buckeye Pile Ointment, only 50 cents a
bottle. For sale at Trantham's Drug Store.
On meeting a friend the first inquiry is al
ways regarding hi health. Why? Because
health i uf tlie fit consideration; yet many
wiJI git in a cold, damp theatre, regardless of
weak lungs and hacking cough. Discard some
of the ephemeral pleasure ol the day, ptich as
theatre-jioing, ciiCHr-siuoking, &c., and invest
your sapill change in noruething that will be a
"asling benefit. For instance, Coussens' Coni
Kund Honey of Tar cots only 5O cents, and
will cure yotir Cough, Cold, and II diseases of
the Throat nnd Lungs. Try t. For sale at
H. T. Trantham's Urug Store. 0:3ia.
It is tlie duty of every person who has used
BoscHfcE's German SvhI'P to lets its wonder
ful qualities be known to their friends in cur
ing Cqnsuiuplion, severe C'piijli?, Croup, Asth
ma, Pneumonia, and in fact all throat and
lung diseases. No person can use it without
immediate relief. Three dopes will relieve
any case, and we consider it the duty of all
Druggists to recommend it to the poor dying
consumptive, at least to try one bottle, as 40,
000 dozen bottles were sold last year, and no
case where it failed wa? reported. Such a med
icine as the German Syrup cannot he too
widely known. Ask your Druggist about it.
Sample bottle to try sold at 10 vents. Kegujar
ize 75 cents. For sale by all Druggist.
